A Time of Refinement
James Scott Trimm
The Scripture says:
The refining pot is for silver,
and the furnace for gold:
but YHWH tries the hearts.
(Proverbs 17:2 HRV)
We have entered a time of refinement. Just as metal must be refined before it can move to a stage where it can be shaped to the will of the artisan, so must this movement be refined so that the Great Artisan can shape us to His will. The dross will float to the top and be removed, be not dismayed, as this must be.
The fact is that this movement is moving forward in some amazing ways in coming months. This ministry (The Worldwide Nazarene Assembly of Elohim) has always been on the cutting edge of the movement, and there are exciting times ahead.
So when you see the refinement, realize that this refinement must occur, the dross must be removed for us to be prepared to conform to the will of YHWH as we move forward.
I recently contacted you to tell you that we ended November under budget.
As a result we are now facing a budget shortfall in December, we have bills due, and no money with which to pay them.
I am asking you, if this ministry has ever benefited you, to strongly consider stepping up to the plate and supporting this work today.
Please help us bring the message of Messiah and Torah to a lost world and create Scripture study materials for believers.
