"I Am Tempering You" Vision on 01-01-2013
"I Am Tempering You"
On 01-01-2013, I awoke to a
vision of a sword hovering in the air. It was being dipped into different
things. The first thing it was dipped into was a vat of sand. The next was a
container of wool. The third was a vessel of a silvery liquid.Over and over, the sword was dipped into each
thing, one at a time, and repeated many times in it's circuit of sand, wool,
and oil. Then the final thing was the sword was then placed within the folds of
a beautiful garment that hung in the air nearby.
Then, the Lord spoke:
I am tempering you.
I am rendering you impervious to cracks, to fractures,
to schisms, and to divisions.
I am hardening you to temptations and to demonic
I am making you inflexible to compromise and to
mixture of any kind.
I am making you rigidly righteous, and strong in your
faith in Me, so that I can wield you fully.
I am polishing the last of the smudges in your
personality that mar My image from being fully seen.
I want you to gleam with Me in a new sensitivity and
reveal a brighter countenance of Me.
I am enfolding you into each other, My Robe, My
Church, and I am adding into your layers a new corporate strength.
I have tempered you each individually, now I will form
you corporately into a formidable weapon for Me.
This is the Year 2013, when I will form, I will
assemble anew, and bring My End Time Army into full battle view.
Exodus 30:34 And the LORD
said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum;
these sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like
weight: 35 And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the art of the
apothecary, tempered together, pure and holy: 36 And thou shalt beat some of it
very small, and put of it before the testimony in the tabernacle of the
congregation, where I will meet with thee: it shall be unto you most holy.
1 Corinthians 9:25 And every
man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to
obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
1 Corinthians 12:23 And those
members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow
more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. 24
For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together,
having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked. 25 That there
should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care
one for another.
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit
of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
2 Peter 1:5 And beside this,
giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6 And
to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
1 Peter 5:8 Be well balanced
(temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that
enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger],
seeking someone to seize upon and devour. 9 Withstand him; be firm in faith
[against his onset--rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined],
knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood
(the whole body of Christians) throughout the world.
Ephesians 6:16 Lift up over
all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the
flaming missiles of the wicked [one]. 17 And take the helmet of salvation and
the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God. 18 Pray at all
times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of]
prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and
perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God's consecrated
