Dear Ones, As I searched the Word and asked for Father’s heart I felt He wanted me to share about the shame of our nakedness. I did not expect to write a poem but the words filled my mind. I am one who has been at His feet, seen my sin, the pride in my heart and have been forgiven. The fire is hot for many of my brothers and sisters but this poem He gave me rings with hope. Those who endure to the end will emerge glorious.
Are you one in the fire? I say—rejoice! You are chosen, set apart and being prepared, for His great service, in these latter days. This—is for YOU!
“I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.”
In making themselves wise
They became naked
In their own prudence their clothing was corrupted
Their gold became dim
Today the Spirit is calling men to the fire
To buy from Him gold that will not diminish
The shame of their nakedness
Revealed by His Word…healed in His presence
And the Spirit is calling
Come, buy, drink
You who are thirsty and I will fill you
Come, learn of Me and take counsel of Me
For the fear of men brings ruin.
Open are the gates I set before you
But who will hear My call?
Who will come and sweetly yield his soul into My keeping
Who will trust Me to refine him as gold in the fire
Who will keep My testimony when the winds are contrary
Even from the burning fiery furnace?
So My eyes run to and fro upon the face of the Earth
Searching for one who delights to do My Father’s will
For one who from the fire I have refined as gold
Upon this one will I bestow my glory, my understanding
That he may rule and reign with Me
I call to you
I lay my plea and expose my heart to you,
For the way is not easy; many fall in the desert
But the one who yields his soul to the refiner’s fire
Will come out shining as the sun—as an alabaster city
And I will give this one a new name
Because he came— answered My call–endured the fire!
And emerged from the desert—full of My glory!
