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 fullers' 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. Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years. (Malachi 3:2-4)
It is only through the love of GOD that we have any hope. As the well known verse says GOD so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosover believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. He takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked, and is not willing that any should perish but He commands men everywhere to repent. To surrender to Him on His terms and receive by Faith the new life that He offers.
A new life that will include purging and cleansing by the Master, but is so much better than the old life that will perish with this world that is already under judgment because of sIn. I urge you to be honest with yourself and with GOD and if you are not in a secure right relationship with Him today, to admit your sIn and ask Him for His salvation: Believing that the Lord Jesus is GOD and His finished work on the cross is sufficient for your sins.
If you are secure in your relationship with Him, take the Gospel out to this lost and dying world that they might know and believe.
