Malachi 3:3
" And He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He shall purify the sons of Levi, and shall purge them as gold and silver".

The only way to purify, and purge silver is to put it through fire (silver symbolizes redemption)

Isaiah 48:10
" I have tried you in a furnace of affliction"

The Lord is trying to prepare His church. He wants us dressed in white, without blemish or wrinkle and the way to take the blemishes out is through fire.
And though afflictions cause sorrow yet at the end those same afflictions will bring out the praises of a broken heart that glorifies the Lord

Isaiah 1:18
" Come let us reason together says the Lord, though your sins be like scarlet they shall be white as snow"

A good silversmith knows how long the silver has to stay in the fire or he will ruin it if it stays to long . And a good silver smith knows his silver is refined when he can see the reflection of his face in the silver

Sometimes we think why is this happening why am i going through this. God is purifying you. Don't give up nor murmer or complain like some of the people in Israel did when He took them out of Egypt... Let the Lord the good silversmith do His job.

thank you lord for allowing me to read this...I've been trying to get my husband to realize this. That the greater the trail the bigger the blessing. that we are being tested like gold in the fire... Like Job was tested... I pray God speaks to his heart and brings him home mentally and physically... That God opend his eyes & heart only to realize that the enemy is a liar as has been trying to let us lose sight of what God has given us.. only with time can we see our refections and God shining through our union.... through the gold that has been put through the fire...
