The Spirit of Burning

We had a special broadcast on Sunday concerning the 3rd Baptism. at

The following is from an email that confirms to me why we could not delay the above broadcast discussion:

The Spirit of Burning
“Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming, says the LORD of hosts. But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap. He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the LORD offerings in righteousness.” (Malachi 3:1-3)

Briefly, beloved (and this ties in with the most recent messages), there MUST be a fiery clearing away of everything that is of the fallen nature before the Lord will “come” in fullness to His temple. Though we have received of imputed righteousness by faith through the blood of Jesus Christ and an “in part” anointing of the Spirit, the Word declares a time when God’s people will present actual offerings of righteousness to God, meaning; there will no longer be the defiled nature of Adam at work in them, and at this time they will be ready for THE FULLNESS.

As I have shared, this will only be made possible through an unprecedented fiery work of God’s Spirit which has been reserved for these, the last days of the age. The apostle Peter wrote of this “salvation” that would be revealed in the last time (1 Peter 1:5, 9). The prophet Isaiah also had some insight as to how this amazing work of God would be accomplished in men. Isaiah wrote…

“It will come about that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy – everyone who is recorded for life in Jerusalem. When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and purged the bloodshed of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and the spirit of burning…” (Isaiah 4:3, 4)

It is true, beloved, that unprecedented fiery purgations will be sent by the Lord upon the whole world eventually, but before this fiery flood comes to the world “the spirit of judgment and the spirit of burning” will be sent to a remnant people that they may present “offerings of righteousness” to the Lord and also demonstrate to the world holiness and righteousness made manifest IN A PEOPLE. Prophets throughout the ages have spoken of this. I shared something from Jane Leade recently about this, something that was written in 1679. Take a look at an excerpt from that again now…

“This will be a fiery trial through which a very few will be able to pass or bear up in it. Whereby the waiters for this visible breaking forth are strictly charged to hold fast, and wait together in the unity of Pure Love. This trial will be of absolute necessity to all for the clearing away of all remaining infirmities of the natural mind, and the burning of all hay, wood, and stubble. For nothing must remain in the fire, for as a refiner shall He purify the sons of the kingdom.”

Dear friends, Our Father will have for Himself a corporate WITNESS in the earth like nothing that this world has ever seen before, but before this manifestation can occur there must be a fiery coming of the Lord to a remnant people “in the spirit of judgment and the spirit of burning” that all infirmities of the natural mind and soul might be removed from them.

Regarding this, I don’t believe that this particular work is mandated necessarily, but is something that comes when one fully gives themselves to God as a FREE WILL OFFERING. This is saying that the saints upon whom the end of this age has now come have THE OPPORTUNITY now to present themselves as living sacrifices upon the altar of God and that there is very great reward for doing this.

Along these lines, a brother asked me recently to tell him why I think it is that the church today is so spiritually weak and that most people in the church today can’t hear God as they ought to. I said to him that I think that is because very few Christians today have gone before God and cried out to Him with every molecule of their being that they want to KNOW HIM in the power of Christ’s resurrection and that they care not what the cost of knowing Him in this way is. This brother then asked me if I had ever done that, prayed in such a way, and I shared with him that I pray that prayer almost every day, but that I first prayed it (on my knees and in tears) about 15 years ago. That is when my whole life got turned upside down. That is when I got stripped of all of my material possessions and entered into the fellowship of Christ’s sufferings in a way that many times I thought that I would rather die than carry on with it. I always carried on and made it through to an eventual reprieve. Now though, this fire seems HOTTER THAN EVER, and there appears to be no reprieve in sight. I suspect that this is because this is the part of the journey represented by Jesus’ walk from Gethsemane to Golgotha. I may share more on this subject later as it relates to us not only being in the fire, but us becoming it, and thereby no longer able to be “hurt by the second death.”

A second email with further understanding about why we had to identify the spirit of Jezebel who was attempting to distract us from this revelation:

For many of us this past season has been an immersion in fire. This is because we are being brought to judgment in preparation for the next order of the Kingdom. The Lord, whom we seek, will suddenly come to His temple, but first He must sit as smelter and purifier of our metal, Him purifying the sons of Levi and refining them like gold and silver that they may present to the Father offerings in righteousness.

Along these lines; demonic entities are being NAMED and are being THROWN DOWN from positions of influence which have been held over many of us. This too is a necessary part of the spiritual fulfillment of the Day of Atonement. I believe that those who humble themselves and allow the Spirit of God to cleanse them in this way will be brought into the spiritual liberty of the coming age and Kingdom, but those who do not allow the Holy Spirit to cleanse them in this way (whether because of their objection based on doctrinal misunderstanding, spiritual pride, or love for their sins) will remain bound, kept from their inheritance by spiritual adversaries and left to await a judgment of another time.

Beloved, we have been told by John the Baptist that a time would come when the Lord Jesus would baptize us in fire. This baptism is for the purpose of reconciling every part of our personality to the Presence and will of the Father. It is important to remember, as we are going through the dealings of the Lord, that the joy of the Lord is our strength, meaning; strength can be found in the knowledge of the purpose and in knowing that our willingness to be subjected to the fire is pleasing the Father.

It is easy to fall into gloom and pessimism, to complain, and to become frustrated and discouraged when being judged. I think that this is the reason that the spiritual fulfillment of the Day of Atonement is placed toward the end of the process of our redemption, for it would not be possible for us to endure the fiery tribulations, dealings, probings and testings at an earlier stage of our spiritual development.

The Bride of the Lamb is to be without spot, wrinkle, blemish, or any flaw or stain of any kind, beloved. There must be no corruption in her. She has been called to be the complement of the Lord Jesus Christ. God is bringing about such perfection in us and we are to bear patiently with the Lord until He is satisfied with His handiwork. Divine workings have brought us from the chaotic condition of those who are without Christ and they will bring us all the way to perfect, complete union with God through Christ. Let understanding of that be a joy set before you in this day, as you endure your cross.


It is becoming evident that this 3rd Baptism is at hand and once it is fulfilled, the power and authority from On High will be manifested among the Remnant.
