The Deity and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, separates the true Christian from all religious gods of the world. Apart from His cross, there is simply is no redemption for sin and people would eternally be separated from God.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” — John 14:6
“And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.– Hebrews 9:22
The prophet Malachi prophesied of a supernatural purge coming to God’s house.
” . . . the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to His temple… but who may abide the day of His coming? And who shall stand when He appeareth? For He is like a refiner’s fire, and like fuller’s soap. And He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and He shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.” (Malachi 3:1-3)
This is a dual prophecy. He speaks of Christ’s first coming, and also of His second! He will come again suddenly, as a thief in the night. But first, He will purify His Church. The Bible says He is coming back for an overcoming Church called the Bride of Christ without spot or wrinkle! At the same time, there will be a large falling away that shows Jesus standing on the outside of the backslidden, wealthy church knocking at the door to come inside the hearts of the people. The question is no longer, “What can my faith get me? What miracle will He perform for me?” The question now is – “How shall I stand before Him? How shall I make it at the Judgment?” ” . . who shall stand when He appeareth?” (Malachi 3:2)
The spiritual purge must begin in the pulpit! ” . . . He shall purify the sons of Levi… ” (Malachi 3:3) God is “turning up the heat making things so blistering, so severely intense; Pastors and church leaders will be driven to their knees in repentance by the fire of the Holy Ghost He is going to shake everything that can be shaken! Christian will not escape this Divine spiritual cleansing. Each will have the opportunity to receive or reject the chastisement of God. The divine purge will spread from the pulpit to the pew! Exposition of all sin, all adultery, and all foolishness can turn into blessing when repentance returns the sinners to submit to God! The Holy Ghost will reprove every Christian of sin.
“Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. . . “(Hebrews 12:14) Malachi said – “…the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven: and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up…” (Malachi 4:1)
God also promises to bring down the strongholds of the enemy! He is going to once and for all let the devil and the world know who has the power!
