But who can endure the day of his coming?
Who can stand when he appears?
For he will be like a refiner's fire
or a launderer's soap.
He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver;
he will purify the Levites
and refine them like gold and silver.
Then the LORD will have men
who will bring offerings in righteousness,
and the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem
will be acceptable to the LORD,
as in days gone by, as in former years.
~ MALACHI 3
I counsel you to buy from me
gold refined in the fire,
so you can become rich;
and white clothes to wear,
so you can cover your shameful nakedness;
and salve to put on your eyes,
so you can see.
~ REVELATION 3
