Mho can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner's fire or a launderer's soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify ... and refine them like gold and silver. Then the LORD will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness ~ Malachi 3:2

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. ~ Isaiah 43:2

Cleansing Fire

Many people do not understand the concept of Refiner's Fire, or Cleansing Fire.

Fire Burns!  It burns away that which is not pure.

So here are a few Bible verses to look up as you start to make the Refiner's Fire your heart's desire.

Everything that can endure the fire, you shall make it go through the fire, and it shall be clean
Numbers 31:23a

My grandmother cooked on a wood burning stove. Anyone who mentioned the heat would likely here grandma say, "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!"

Only later did I understand the spiritual aspects, the heat is what makes us pure.

This third I will bring into the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, 'They are my people,' and they will say, 'The LORD is our God.'
Zechariah 13:9

Only one third are worthy enough to even go into the fire, are you one? Will you come through the fire and be able to say, 'the Lord is our God!'

So that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Yeshua the Messiah.
1 Peter 1:7

Have the fires of life been testing your life latelyDoes it result in praise, glory and honor to the Lord? 

Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tried you in the furnace of affliction.

Isaiah 48:10

Are you being tried in the furnace of affliction?  Stand up to the heat, it is only the Lord Refining you for something greater.  Every truly great story is about overcoming affliction.  And we have a great God to help us!
