Here I am my Father, take the coal, touch my lips, cleanse my being. I am willing to accept my guilt. I am willing to give up my tone of unworthy and unwarranted suspicions concerning Your faithfulness. Do unto me as it is pleasing in Your sight.
You are calling me to come now and let us reason together. Here I am, my Father, empty handed. Leaving all material concerns for a time, naked I stand in Your Presence. First thing? My guilt concerning material things including food. Second? My attitude towards money. Pointing my finger at Ahmad for the lack of it, but! I am the guilty one because that’s what You declare to me in Malachi 3:1-18 AMPC+:
BEHOLD, I send My messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me. And the Master, the Messiah, Whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; the Messenger or Angel of the covenant, Whom you desire, behold, He shall come, says the Master of hosts.
Wow! O dear reader, I never saw this before. I read that verse a gillion times always thinking on the second coming of our Redeemer, but! Yahushua is already here, right within my/our hearts. No kidding. Look at the next verse.
But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap; He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the priests, the sons of Levi, and refine them like gold and silver, that they may offer to the Master offerings in righteousness.
Indeed! Who can endure the day of His coming in our hearts? We got it all wrong. We get carried away by euphoric feelings and intellectual assumptions about His day in our hearts. His Presence in our hearts is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap; He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the priests, the sons of Levi, and refine them like gold and silver, that they may offer to the Master offerings in righteousness. O mine! O mine! What is a priest? A priest is a mouthpiece for our Creator. That’s what He made me to be. Ha! That’s the meaning of all this time I am going through. Talking about REFINING? Ouch! The judgement is not a pleasant thing for sure. Read on.
