Refiners Fire – 850mm x 600mm x 10mm
Ps 66:10 – For You o God have proved us; You have tried us as silver is tried, refined and purified.
Job 23:10 – But He knows the way that I take (He has concern for it, appreciates and pay attention to it). When He has tried me, I shall come forth as refined gold (pure and luminous).
Isaiah 48:10 – Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tried and chosen you in the furnace of affliction.
Isaiah 43:2 – When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the waters, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not beburned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you.
Through the process of the refining fire the Gold or Silver goes through a furnace of up to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit to get rid of other impure metals. Separating pure gold from other less precious metals. Only when the refiner looks into the crucible and sees a clear reflection of himself, the process is complete.
Sometimes we come to a point where we feel we cannot go on or survive the struggles we are facing. Many times it is only then that people call to God for help. In the end when you look back at the struggle you realize it was worth it, that you have learned something through that and that you are now living so much closer to God and you will not change this new relationship with God for anything. Character is force over time.
People can go through the refiner’s fire and be renewed with a new beginning.
God will test you by trails to make you a better and stronger person, but He will never let you go through it alone. He is always right next to you. Just reach for Him and call Him. Trust….Believe…
7 = Perfection, call to rest, man of God, Purified + 1 = Unity with God (beginning, unique)
7+1 = 8 = New Beginning
A new beginning for someone who went through the refiners fire.
