Worthy is the LAMB+... worthy is the LAMB+... worthy is the LAMB+ that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing! Blessing and honor and glory and power be unto HIM that sitteth on the throne and unto The LAMB+ for ever and ever. Amen.

The UNAVOIDABLE Refining Pot ...
. Refining . .
HE+ Who+ is coming after me is stronger than I , Whose+ sandals I am not worthy to pick up.
HE+ will Baptize you with the HOLY SPIRIT and with FIRE, Whose+ winowing fan is in His+ Hand. HE+ will throughly cleanse His+ floor, and will gather His+ wheat into the garner, but will burn the chaff with unquenchable fire.
Our LORD will refine His+ children.
THAT IS A PROMISE
It is similar to pruning. Both are painful, but are done for the health of the one receiving it, for his benefit.
IT ALSO BENEFITS
the Kingdom of GOD.
For everyone shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.
The fire shall test every man's work.
(Yes, another couple of promises
seldom acknowledged and remaining unclaimed. )
Let us present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto GOD, which is our reasonable (Divine) service.
Let us take heed to ourselves. Our life is like a mist that appears for a little while and then disappears.
Let us all, along with Mary, the sister of Lazarus, choose that one thing that is necessary, which will not be taken away from us.
