"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.  And 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 3:5

"And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power.  When He had made PURIFICATION of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high;"  Hebrews 1:3


 to remove dirty or harmful substances from something: to free someone from guilt or evil thoughts :  to make pure:   :  to clear from material defilement or imperfection 

Oh Jesus, You are the PURIFIER!  This is the Good News of the Gospel!  You have PURIFIED me from sin!  I am free from guilt and shame because of what You did for me!  Romans 8:1 says "There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."  No condemnation.  I stand PURIFIED before You!  Sometimes this seems too easy - and then I remember that it was not easy for You.  You endured crucifixion for me.  You endured beatings and mockings and death on the cross so that I might be PURIFIED.  There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus - those who believe in what You did for us!  Thank You Jesus - for enduring crucifixion for me - that I might be PURIFIED!

Worship and praise Jesus today - the PURIFIER!

(Have you taken time today to realize that you are free from guilt, shame and condemnation if you are in Christ Jesus?)
