SKIMMING OFF THE DROSS 4/06/08
HEARD: Is there anyone willing to go through
the process and have no mixture remain?
VISION: I saw a hand reached out and sweep
over me and touch me.
EXPERIENCE: Right after I saw the hand, I was
gently quickened in my cells all over my body and felt
like a layer had been swept off me. It was like
skimming dross off the top of something heated.
DREAM: I had a dream where all these lead
nails were coming out of me.
COMMENTS: Jeff Jansen said that in some of his
meetings, metal was literally coming out of the pores of
people who had screws and rods in their bodies. Even
the next day after the meetings. Todd Bentley is
calling out a lot of words of knowledge about rods in
HEARD: All gone in Jesus Name. Pronounced
WORD TO PONDER: SKIMMING THE DROSS 4/06/08
I AM removing another layer off you, My beloved ones.
You have gone through a fiery circumstance and the dross
in this has risen to the surface. Fret not, this is My
doing as I carefully watch over all that touches your
life. Like silver that is tried in a furnace, My Word
in you is purified seven times. I AM keeping you and
preserving you through this.
Through these fires, I AM giving you My heart for the
oppressed and the needy, for the widows and orphans. I
AM giving you My passion for justice. I AM restoring My
judges and counsel upon the earth. My faithful ones
shall reign in righteousness.
Prov 25:4-5 NKJV
Take away the dross from silver, And it will go to
the silversmith for jewelry. Take away the wicked from
before the king, and his throne will be established in
Ps 12:5-7 NKJV
"For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of
the needy, now I will arise," says the LORD; "I will set
him in the safety for which he yearns." The words of
the LORD are pure words, Like silver tried in a furnace
of earth, Purified seven times. You shall keep them, O
LORD, You shall preserve them from this generation
Isa 1:22-26 NKJV
Your silver has become dross, Your wine mixed with
water. 23 Your princes are rebellious, And companions of
thieves; Everyone loves bribes, And follows after
rewards. They do not defend the fatherless, Nor does the
cause of the widow come before them. 24 Therefore the
Lord says, The LORD of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel,
"Ah, I will rid Myself of My adversaries, And take
vengeance on My enemies. 25 I will turn My hand against
you, And thoroughly purge away your dross, And take away
all your alloy. 26 I will restore your judges as at the
first, And your counselors as at the beginning.
Afterward you shall be called the city of righteousness,
the faithful city."
Ezek 22:18-19 NKJV
"Son of man, the house of Israel has become dross to
Me; they are all bronze, tin, iron, and lead, in the
midst of a furnace; they have become dross from silver.
CONFIRMATION: COOKING THE SOUP! 4/11/08
I went to lunch with a friend this week and she was
telling me how she cooks chicken and sets the broth in
the fridge to let the fat rise so she can skim it off.
She was praying over me this AM and saw a picture, that
my life is the pot over the fiery furnace and not only
cooking out the impurities, but also pulling forth the
richness of His gifts and callings that are deep within,
so they can rise to the surface and be poured out.
As I read this, I struck me as an amazing, multi
dimensional Word with many “layers” from both sides of
the heating process.
The other side is that He cooks us, heats up the
circumstances and this separates the "bones" ... the
stuff to spit out that are not a good reflection of
Jesus.. Yet when we boil bones, it draws out the
healthy minerals from the bones into the soup. The
bubbly froth that rises to the surface is the impurities
to skim off as it boils, and the heat melts the fat of
His anointing and mixes into the flavor.
Sometimes after He has cooked His Word in us, He puts it
into cold storage so the fat can rise and be separated..
as a sacrifice unto Him. He leaves a portion for flavor
and receives the rest for Himself.
Lev 4:31 NKJV
He shall remove all its fat, as fat is removed from
the sacrifice of the peace offering; and the priest
shall burn it on the altar for a sweet aroma to the LORD
