Refined And Tested

 

I will test you
as gold is tested

I will refine you
as silver is refined

you shall call on Me
and I will answer

I am your God and
you are Mine.

**********

I am refined and tested for You are with me.

**********

“I will bring the one-third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people’; and each one will say, ‘The LORD is my God.'”

The Spirit Of Grace

 

I will destroy
all the nations

that come against
Jerusalem

pouring out
My Spirit of grace

so you know who
I really am.

**********

I can pray for my nation, for You are with me.

**********

“It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”

“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they have pierced ; they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.”

Watching

 

O Lord let me hear
what You are saying

when You speak through
circumstances and lives

giving me
so many examples

of what is wrong
and what is right.

**********

I can understand prophetic messages for You are with me.

**********

“And I took my staff, Beauty, and cut it in two, that I might break the covenant which I had made with all the peoples.”

“So it was broken on that day. Thus the poor of the flock, who were watching me, knew that it was the word of the LORD.”

to be a blessing

do not fear
let your hands be strong

speaking the truth
to one another

letting justice and peace
take the place of wrong.

“And it shall come to pass that just as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you, and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear, let your hands be strong.”

“let none of you think evil in your heart against your neighbor; and do not love a false oath. For all these are things that I hate.”

Don’t refuse
to hear My words

and turn your hearts
to flint

but listen

and surrender
to all of it.

By My Spirit

 

Not by might
nor by power

but by My Spirit
it shall be done

as mountains turn
into plains

with each small step
begun.

**********

You are with me and turn my mountains into plains.

**********

“This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Soirit,’ says the LORD of hosts.”

Iniquity Removed

 

I rebuke you
satan

as you stand ready
to oppose

for it is I who remove
filthy garments

clothing in
new robes.

**********

You are with me and remove my iniquity.

**********

“Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to oppose him.”

“And the LORD said to Satan, ‘The LORD rebuke you Satan! The LORD who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?’ “

“Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and was standing before the Angel.”

“Then He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, ‘Take away the filthy garments from him.’ And to him He said, ‘See, I have removed your iniquity from you, and I will clothe you with rich robes.'”
