This publication is a passionate plea for the Church in the US to open the door and make allowance the Presence of God to come back. Many sincere church leaders at the present time are enthusiastic about the way forward for the yankee church. although we may perhaps, because the Church of Laodicia, be “rich and elevated with goods”, many sincere humans within the American church are strolling as much as the truth that “something is missing.” That “something” is the appear Presence of God.
notwithstanding many church leaders are content material with an even bigger attendance and extra choices within the coffer, there are these between us who're asking, “Where is Jesus in all of this?” I undergo you that he's status on the door knocking, ready to be invited again in.
“But who may possibly abide the day of his front? And who shall stand whilst he looks? For he's like a refiner's fireplace, and he shall sit down as a refiner and air purifier of silver: and he shall purify His humans and purge them as gold and silver, that they might provide unto the LORD an supplying in righteousness. Then shall the providing of His humans be friendly unto the LORD, as within the days of previous, and as in former years” (Mal 3:2-4).

In Israel, you can still frequently discover a silver smith within the markets. They make jewellery for travelers out of silver pocket switch. a chum of mine, in need of a souvenir for his spouse, gladly emptied his wallet of all his silver cash. the road seller then stoked his fireplace and positioned the cash in a pan. because the cash melted within the fire’s presence, a grimy scum may upward thrust to the pinnacle. the road silver smith may skim this off and stare on the melted silver. Pressed for time, my pal requested, “How lengthy is that this going to take?” the road seller answered, “I have no idea yet i need to no longer cease till i will be able to see my mirrored image within the silver.”

this is often what's intended within the above verses whilst God announces “He will refine as a silver and gold.” He wants to see His mirrored image in us whilst he gazes at us. How a lot do you think that the Church in the USA seems like Jesus?

This e-book used to be born due to asking that very same question.
