That Furnace Experience.

tested in affliction

I will bring that group through the fire and make them pure. I will refine them like silver and purify them like gold. Zechariah 13:9 New Living Testament

We all suffer from having destructive habits and dispositions.

When we become a member of Jehovahs family, He will hand us over to the Divine blacksmith (The Holy Spirit). The blacksmith will put us in the furnace of affliction. Then when we are red hot, He pulls us out of the furnace, puts us on the anvil and pounds us. After that we are put in the cooling water. The blacksmith will then examine us to see if it is necessary to put us back in the furnace.

From my experience, each time He has removed a impurity ( like being vindictive) then He puts me back in to remove another impurity ( like being a wimp and allowing folks to abuse me). It may take years to make us pure children of Jehovah. It depends upon how many impure dispositions and habits we have and how much we resist Him. However, boy is it ever worth it. Life is so much better after these filth have been removed from our lives.

I praise Jehovah ever morning for blessing me with putting me in His Divine furnace. So will you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) for blessing me with being able to keep me in the furnace just the right amount of time to be able to burn off the dross and mould me into the child You know I am cable of being. I praise You in the name of He who sent the Holy fire to His disciples on Pentecost Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. Your description of God’s blacksmith shop is a great analogy. Nice work!

    • Thank you.
      I have been put through the furnace of affliction to burn off the dross just like they do with blacksmiths. And, am eternally grateful for it.

  2. I loved the visual of the blacksmith and the fire experience. Excellent post! Thank you. Grace and blessings!
