Refined Silver and Gold

Proverbs 17:3 NET
The crucible is for refining silver and the furnace is for gold, likewise the Lord tests hearts.

From NetBible Prv 17:3

  • * When the Lord “tests” human hearts, the test, whatever form it takes, is designed to improve the value of the one being tested; removing impurities

Psalm 66:10 NLT
You have tested us, O God; you have purified us like silver melted in a crucible.

Remember the “Refiner” sits close by the furnace
Tending the flame
He will not allow us to be tried beyond what we can bear
Don’t be afraid
Yield to the process
The “Refiner” sits close by
Tempering the flames
Always watching patiently until His face is seen
Reflected back
Refined silver
Refined gold
A shining testimony.

1 Peter 1:6-7 AMP
In this you rejoice greatly, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, 7 so that the genuineness of your faith, which is much more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested and purified by fire, may be found to result in [your] praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Revelation 3:18 AMP
I counsel you to buy from Me gold that has been heated red hot and refined by fire so that you may become truly rich; and white clothes [representing righteousness] to clothe yourself so that the shame of your nakedness will not be seen; and healing salve to put on your eyes so that you may see.

    Aroma From the Fire

    Angels from the Mercy Seat worship with the Blood of the Lamb of God on their wings.
    The living spring of gold refined seven times flows.
    Shout grace to the mountain where pure waters run down for us to drink.
    The well is refreshing to the servants that gather out of love for God and one another.
    Throne room words are sent from the root of the stream.
    What is in your hand? With each step take the gift and with the key open the storehouse.
    Heed the cry of the nations who look up with hope to see his face. Sing the song of mercy and obedience to those forgotten by man but in God’s sight pressed like a flower in the Book of Life.
    Daniel’s favor is in the den. The Lion’s mouth is held by angels’ hands.
    Praise causes a shaking as bones come together.
    The prisoner is free as the chains fall off.
    The vast army is ready to move with Joshua’s courage and Caleb’s call to push through to victory.
    The Lord surrounds his people. Mercy is Jonah’s lesson.
    Eat the Promised Land fruit of harvest.

    Blessings

    From NetBible Refiner:

    REFINER [SMITH]

    The refiner’s art was essential to the working of the precious metals. It consisted in the separation of the dross from the pure ore, which was effected by reducing the metal to a fluid state by the application of heat, and by the aid of solvents, such as alkali, (Isaiah 1:25) or lead, Jere 6:29 Which, amalgamating with the dross, permitted the extraction of the unadulterated metal. The instruments required by the refiner were a crucible of furnace and a bellows or blow-pipe. The workman sat at his work, (Malachi 3:3) he was thus better enabled to watch the process, and let the metal run off at the proper moment.
