Buy Gold Refined by Fire

Philippians 1:27-30 NIV
Life Worthy of the Gospel
27 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel 28 without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God. 29 For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him, 30 since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.

I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire! –Rev 3:18

If you stand up for God’s word you will go thru the fire!

But take heart – DON’T BE AFRAID! –2Ch 32:7

The Lord has gone before{His footsteps our pathway}Ps 85:13
And will not leave you alone in the fire –
Dan 3:25
=> He will bring you thru the fireIs 43:2
=> You will come forth like goldJob 23:10-11
=> Your refined faith shining like the stars –1Pe 1:7

Because you held firmly to the word of lifePhil 2:14-18
And stood firm against the “flood” of lies. –Mt 7:24-25

The best way to stand and resist is to say “It is written”!Lk 4

    Compare to this word below which is in contrast to the above
    => what is the gold in the above word vs. the word below?:

    I put it below so you can see the process of evaluating a teaching/prophecy for yourself. This is extremely important at this time when deception abounds – be very careful what you listen to and accept as Truth!

    promises: Fear not, people of God, the Lord is with you, whether you feel Him or not. Live your life in love, faith and righteousness and You will know the Partnership of Heaven helping you overcome and prosper. Do not ignore the whispers of Heaven. This is how I am stretching your faith. Put aside doubts and fears and be bold for God and you will experience His Peace, Power & Prosperity in every sphere of life.

    prosperity through faith and doing right; (v.18a);

    =>Revelation 3:18(a)I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich

    Are these promises of prosperity about wealth? Gold? Riches – money? Look at the verse right before v18.

    Revelation 3:17Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked …

    Here in this verse the Laodiceans are called poor even though they are wealthy=>Laodicea prided itself on three things: financial wealth, an extensive textile industry, and a popular eye-salve which was exported around the world

    => prosperity here is NOT about gold, wealth/money

    => Matthew 5:3Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.{God blesses those who are poor in sprit and realize their need for Him}

    => Laodicea instead of relying on their wealth, should repent v19 and rely on the Lord = “be poor in spirit”
    =>then they would inherit the “richest reward” => the kingdom of heaven

    Let your spiritual house be strong – built on a firm, mature, complete foundation …

    James 1:2-4Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finsh its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

    James 1:3-4 AMPC … Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. 4 But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing.
