Holy Love, Holy Fire, Holy Transformation!

Beloved of the Lord,

The flame of God’s pure holy love is intensifying in the hearts of those who are diligently giving up everything this world has to offer. There is a finishing work that God (pure holy love) is now manifesting in the hearts of those who have come out of the world and the religious system. This work is His cleansing judgments that first begin in the House of the Lord. This cleansing work is bringing forth the full grow sons of God.

To those who are responding correctly to the drawing of the Lord they are spending more and more time in the presence of the Lord. In that presence a new intensity of fire has come to finish the purifying work in them to prepare them for His millennial kingdom.

The enemy wants to get God’s people diverted away from God’s intended purpose of us being full grown sons and daughters. He will use the things of life, the desires of the world, religious activity in the name of God to divert us from God’s intention for us.


What is that intention of the Lord? We can find the answer in the prayer Paul prayed in Ephesians chapter 3. Let us read that prayer now:

14 For this reason [grasping the greatness of this plan by which Jews and Gentiles are joined together in Christ] I bow my knees [in reverence] before the Father [of our Lord Jesus Christ], 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth [a] derives its name [God—the first and ultimate Father]. 16 May He grant you out of the riches of His glory, to be strengthened and spiritually energized with power through His Spirit in your inner self, [indwelling your innermost being and personality],

17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through your faith. And may you, having been [deeply] rooted and [securely] grounded in love, 18 be fully capable of comprehending with all the saints (God’s people) the width and length and height and depth of His love [fully experiencing that amazing, endless love]; 19 and [that you may come] to know [practically, through personal experience] the love of Christ which far surpasses [mere] knowledge [without experience], that you may be filled up [throughout your being] to all the fullness of God [so that you may have the richest experience of God’s presence in your lives, completely filled and flooded with God Himself].

Beloved, we are living in the time this prayer is being answered fully in those who are responding correctly to the Lord’s drawing us to be one with Him. This oneness is compared in the Bible of us being as a bride with her bridegroom Jesus.

Jesus prayed that intention in his prayer about us be filled and knowing His glory found in John 17: 22 “I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one, just as We are one; 23 I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected and completed into one, so that the world may know [without any doubt] that You sent Me, and [that You] have loved them, just as You have loved Me.

The Lord intends us to be filled with Him, which is pure holy love. He desires that our roots are deeply rooted and grounded in His pure holy love, so we can comprehend the width, length, height, and depth of His love. He desires us to fully experienced it now on this Earth, not when we die.

Beloved God want us to be filled with the richest experience of God’s presence in our lives now!That presence is His Glory. That glory is the glory Jesus had when he was in and with the Father before the foundation of the world. Right now in those who are responding correctly to the Lord His pure holy love is completely filling them with His glory (oneness with Him). Remember God desires His glory to fill the whole Earth.


Jesus said his glory was the fact that Father dearly and tenderly love the son, and the son dearly and tenderly love the father. Jesus said the glory of God the Father is that he has given everything to the Son. Everything the Father is, everything He has, and everything He will ever be he gave to Jesus.

The glory of Jesus is that he has willingly and lovingly has given everything back to the father that the Father gave him as the perfect act of love. Everything Jesus was given by the Father Jesus gave back to the Father and that includes us. What a tremendous picture of what perfect love really is. Perfect love cast out all fear.

Beloved, This is what pure holy love is, a love that gives all that it is to another with no strings attached. This glory is perfectly revealed in and through the Godhead as the perfect family. This is the same glory they have given us and they love us with as One God!

God is pure holy love! How many of us today truly know and experience the depth of that love continually and allow that love to fill us completely? Are we allowing that love to lead us, guide us out of this world’s desires to live in love with only Him in a completely surrendered life given back to Him?

The holy love that God is has to be welcomed and received in their heart by those who are willing to receive it. The Lord also knows that His perfect love must grow and be developed in us  on this Earth, and that only those who are hungry for God alone above all things can experience it and be changed by it.

To those who will respond to it, the Lord will come and manifest that holy love in them. What will that holy love experience look like in those who choose it in this hour? The answers to that question is what Malachi prophesies to us in chapter 3.

Malachi 3:  “Behold, I am going to send My [a]messenger, and he will prepare and clear the way before Me. And the Lord [the Messiah], whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the Lord of hosts. 2 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 launderer’s soap [which removes impurities and uncleanness]. 3 He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi [the priests], and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the Lord [grain] offerings in righteousness. 4 Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the Lord as in the days of old and as in ancient years.


There is a cleansing judgment that has come unto the world, and it has begun in the house of the Lord. This cleansing judgment is the perfect flame of God’s Holy love that has come to finish the work in the hearts of God’s people. It is pure light. It is pure love and it is exposing everything in us that is not made of the same substance of His love.
Love is who God is and will ever be. Everything God is and everything He does is done in perfect holy love. There is not one ounce of darkness in him. He is the light of the world. In john chapter 1 Jesus is described to be this love, light and the glory of God revealed in flesh.

John 1: In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. 2 He was [continually existing] in the beginning [co-eternally] with God. 3 All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him not even one thing was made that has come into being. 4 In Him was life [and the power to bestow life], and the life was the Light of men. 5 The Light shines on in the [c]darkness, and the darkness did not understand it or overpower it or appropriate it or absorb it .

9 There it was—the true Light [the genuine, perfect, steadfast Light] which, coming into the world, enlightens everyone. 10 He (Christ) was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him. 11 He came to that which was His own [that which belonged to Him—His world, His creation, His possession], and those who were His own [people—the Jewish nation] did not receive and welcome Him. 12 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to become children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name— 13 who were born, not of blood [natural conception], nor of the will of the flesh [physical impulse], nor of the will of man [that of a natural father], but of God [that is, a divine and supernatural birth—they are born of God—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified].

 God is love and when Malachi said, God is going to send His messenger before his coming both  before His first and second coming, he is not speaking of a preacher, or even a 5 fold ministry gift. He is not speaking about a revival, renewal, or refreshing which all of these God has used to prepare us of this moment to bring forth His kingdom. What Malachi is speaking of for this present moment in time is much deeper.

He is speaking a time of a “cleansing judgment.” A judgment that begins in God’s house. 1 Peter 4-15:17  But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?


There has been an ongoing spiritual preparation of a “people within a people, a church within a church” that has been drawn out of the “church proper” to be set apart by God for a deep intimate relationship with him. A relationship that is about to be displayed and has begun to be displayed by those who have come into full grown sonship with the Lord. It is going to cause them to reflect that very light Jesus was and is presently when he walked on this Earth in a single bodily form.

Now there is going to be a new corporate expression of Jesus in a multi-member body of believers who have gone through the desert as Jesus did to overcome the world, the religious system and all that would deter them from living in that pure holy love. These saints have allowed the Lord to examine their heart and have cooperated with the prophetic word Malachi brought to the people of God.


Notice in verse 1 of Malachi chapter 3 it says, “Behold, I am going to send a messenger before you and he will prepare the way."
In the time Jesus walked on the earth that  messenger manifested in the person of John the Baptist who was a “friend of the bridegroom.”

John was called to “prepare the way for the physical coming of Jesus as a man, as the lamb of God to take away the sins of the world. His preaching was with fire and it brought almost all of Israel to come out into the desert to hear the message of repentance for the Messiah was coming.

His words were filled with the fire of God to cause those who would hear it and let God touch their heart to truly repent and turn back to God and be baptized. Yet, Malachi is about to speak of a second “messenger’ to come that would do an inner work so deep in the hearts of God’s people that it would prepare for the Lord a royal priesthood and a holy nation. (1 Peter 2;9-10)

This messenger work was not about just saving men, but purifying them for the true purposes and plans of God for those who would answer the call. It was a purifying work for those seeking the Lord Himself. This messenger would bring the fire to the hearts of men. John says it this way in Matthew 3:11 "I baptize with water those who repent of their sins and turn to God. But someone is coming soon who is greater than I am--so much greater that I'm not worthy even to be his slave and carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.”

Malachi 3 says, “The Lord whom you seek shall suddenly come to His temple.” That is exactly what Jesus has done as the Omega finishing God He is. He has come to His people as pure Holy love through the Holy Spirit to prepare a way for his coming kingdom millennial reign.
Those who are rightly responding to the Lord are seeking this union and communion with him fully. They desire him to be their bridegroom and for them to be His bride, his friend, and to become full grown sons and citizens of the kingdom of God.


These set apart ones, the church within the church, a people within a people have set their priorities not to live in this world system, or a religious system. They are consumed with the coming King and His kingdom to reign in their hearts.

They are now are seeking the Lord in much deeper way. They are not content with just knowing him some, but they desire to know him fully and to dwell in him fully. They have come to the understanding from the Holy Spirit they must seek God with their whole hearts and to present as themselves as living sacrifices to God as Paul exhorted them to do in Romans 12:1-2

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

 This church within a church, or people within a people are likened to the Shulammite woman in the Song of Solomon: Her prayer in Chapter 1:4 is “Draw me away with you and let us run together!Let the king bring me into his chambers.”
 She has heard the voice of the “messenger” of the Lord who she is seeking. She is hearing his call to come out and separate herself unto Him for His holy purposes. Her lover (Jesus) calls her away just to be with him in Chapter 2:10 She says,  “My beloved speaks and says to me,‘Arise, my love, my fair one,And come away.” 
 This represents a people within a people, a church within a church that has heard this call to be one with him and has arisen out of the world, out of the religious system, to come alone and be with him and be changed from glory to glory.

All those who that have done this or presently are doing this now have entered into a time of cleansing judgments of the Lord. That cleansing agent is pure burning flame of God’s holy love. Malachi describes that holy love as so hot, and so pure he says, “Who can endure the day of his coming and who can stand when he appears.” Malachi 3:2 This metaphor speaks of the power of the pure holy love.


Who can endure such a pure holy love? This love is so intense it searches the deepest recesses of a human heart. It exposes every trace of sin and darkness and it seeks its removal by the greatest power ever known on earth the Baptism of the Holy Fire.

A fire that has come to burn it all up until every trace of sin and darkness is completely gone. It burns so hot that every idol becomes exposed for what it is and how it is keeping the “beloved of God” away from the oneness He so desires to reveal in us which is His true Glory.

Beloved of the Lord, we must surrender to the purifying perfect love of God. We must embrace His glory that will make us one with him forever as he is one with the Father. There are a people right now who have said yes, as like a Bride they are making themselves ready now for their Bridegroom to come for them. Rev 19:7 speaks of this company of people who have made themselves ready for the Lord Himself.

7“Let us rejoice and shout for joy! Let us give Him glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb has come [at last] and His bride (the redeemed) has prepared herself.” 8 She has been permitted to dress in fine linen, dazzling white and clean—for the fine linen signifies the righteous acts of the saints [the ethical conduct, personal integrity, moral courage, and godly character of believers].9 Then the angel said to me, “Write, ‘[a]Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’” And he said to me [further], “These are the true and exact words of God.” 

Beloved, the Bride has “made herself ready.” She has prepared herself. She has allowed pure Holy Love to come in to heart most Christians will never know. This bride is being raised from the “spiritually dead” to live in the “abundant life Jesus has come to give her as begin one with him as his bride.

The Bride is seeking Love Himself. She is seeking to be so one with Jesus as Jesus was so much one with the Father. She will settle for nothing less then complete oneness with him as a bride with her husband.

This hunger for him allows those cleansing flames to come and burn in her heart to refine her  like gold and silver. This hunger for Him allows the Lord “whom she is seeking” to come and be a refiners fire and fullers soap to her.


The word to refine means: to bring to a fine or a pure state; free from impurities: To remove from you what is coarse, vulgar, or debasing; make elegant or cultured. To bring to a finer state or form by purifying. The silver is refining in the furnace. To become more fine, elegant, or polished: 

The refining fire of pure holy love comes into a heart that desires nothing but God and brings them into a purest state of love where the free from the impurities of sin that produces death. They know can have life and to have it more abundantly as Jesus said now upon the Earth.

Those who are diligently seeking the Lord and to truly be one with him are putting away every sin and weight that has easily beset them. They are seeking the Lord’s pure holy love to complete them and finish them. In that process God will remove everything that is coarse, and is against His pure holy love.

The fire of pure Holy love that has suddenly come will remove everything that is vulgar and deposing in their heart so they can become elegant and spiritually cultured for the Lord. They will be a bride without wrinkle or spot.


There is only one prayer that burns in me when I pray for the saints, my family, and for myself and that is the very first commandment. Deut. 6:5 "Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! 5"You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might."

esus repeated this to teach his disciples the first principle to live in love, walk in love and the life of what the kingdom of God really is. Mark 12 30:31: and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul (life), and with all your mind (thought, understanding), and with all your strength.’ 31 This is the second: ‘You shall [unselfishly] [a]love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
 This refining cleanings judgment has begun in the house of the Lord to bring forth the perfection of these two commandments in His chosen people, His Bride, His full grown sons. All those who are saying yes Lord do this in me, they are being  prepared to walk in such a new dimension of God’s glory the world has ever seen since Jesus walked on the Earth.

They will be the multi-member corporate bride of Jesus doing what Jesus did, living as Jesus did as an end time witness of God’s pure Holy Love manifesting His kingdom on Earth as it is heaven.


Contrarily, those who do not respond rightly to this cleansing judgment will begin to retreat from the light and power of this holy love that is manifesting now. They will refuse to be healed and set free from the hurts and pain in their hearts and become hardened to the true work of God on the Earth today.

They will reject the “messenger of the covenant of pure holy love” and this will cause them to become dull of hearing and hard of heart. They could end up having a “form of godliness but deny the power there of.”

Jesus spoke of a people who knew his power but refused the intimacy of pure holy love like this In Matthew 7:22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of iniquity.”


The Lord is desiring a Bride, an overcoming people, full grown sons and daughters that will be without spot, wrinkle or blemish. He knows we can’t save ourselves nor can we change ourselves, nor can we complete ourselves.

His word tells us in Phil 1:6 "I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return].”

When the pure holy love of God is not burning in our hearts than a spirit of religion tries to produce a “form of love.” A form of love that tries to do nice things for people. Nice is not a word found in the Bible. The Spirit of religion tries to love. It tries to be kind. It tries to be nice. It tries to help people but it fails miserably.

1st Corinthians 13:1, “ If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not [a]love [for others growing out of God’s love for me], then I have become only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal [just an annoying distraction].
Beloved, this is what the spirit of religion produces. It produces an ANNOYING DISTRACTION against the genuine love of God!This kind of love is not real love at all for the root of it is centered in man’s efforts and not pure holy love.


Pure Holy love doesn’t try to love. It is love. God is love! God is perfect love! God’s holy pure love does not rely on the strength of men to do things for God, it burns in the hearts of those who welcome it and that love burns in them and through them doing the very works of God!

The cleansing fire of love Malachi speaks about comes like a refining fire to bring out the pure quality of the love of God in us. It comes to bring us to a finer and perfect state of intimate relationship with God in Christ Jesus.

God’s desire is perfect union and communion with him that we know who God is and how much we are loved by him. Without being one with him we can never know true holy love nor can we be made complete. Perfect love cast out all fear, because there is no fear in love. (1 John 4:8)

In the cleansing judgment that has begun in the house of the Lord, those seeking the Lord are having him appear within them. He is appearing within them as a refiner’s fire and fullers soap. What is fuller’s soap?


"A fuller was someone who cleaned and thickened (to make it "full") freshly-woven (usually woolen) cloth. The process involved cleaning, bleaching, wetting and beating the fibers to a consistent and desirable condition.

Fuller's earth was a variety of clay that was used to scour and cleanse the cloth. Fuller's soap was an alkali made from plant ashes which was also used to clean and full new cloth.

Since fullers required plenty of running water, along with the natural substances described, a fuller's field was a place where all were available for the fullers to conduct their profession."
The pure holy refining fire of the Lord will act to clean, bleach, wet and beat' our spiritual fibers to a 'consistent and desirable condition.’ It will make us ready to be his bride and to become full grow sons and daughters.

Beloved, The goal is for us to become 'full' consistent and desirable. The cleansing judgments, baptism of fire, pure holy love has come to bring about this finishing purifying process of the Lord. It probably doesn't feel like much fun at the time, but it is the resurrection power of God to prepare us to be His bride, full grown sons so we give to him an offering in righteousness’ as He manifests His kingdom on Earth. 

The Lord refines us with the fire and heat of his pure holy love. This fire and heat exposes and brings darkness into light in the very recesses of our being. Yet, the Lord’s holy love doesn’t just come to expose the darkness, but i comes to “clean, to bleach, to moisten the hard place and beat out of us all that which is not love, all that is not desirable in us, and to make us desirable for the Lord Himself.

This is why in Rev. 19:7 the Bride is making herself ready. She is actively seeking him every moment of the day. She is actively allowing the Lord to expose the hidden intentions, the hidden motives of the heart. She is actively allowing the Lord to expose and remove every single idol in her heart that is more important or above the Lord so the Lord can use that fuller soap of pure holy love to remove it from her.

This refining fire, and fuller soap are in the midst of the cleansing judgments of God in the house of God to prepare a people that will bring the Lord “offerings of righteousness.” The offerings of righteousness that are pleasing to the Lord is nothing less than our presenting ourselves to him as a living sacrifice, holy, and blameless to him which is our reasonable worship.


What does the finishing work look like?” It is the testimony of changed live as found in the Shulammite Bride who’s mature testimony in Song of Solomon 7:10  “I am my beloveds, and his desires are towards me.”
  This is the fruit the holy pure love of God produces in a full grown son or daughter heart. She no longer seeks the Lord for her needs, her wants or her own desires. She has overcome the world as He has overcome the world. 

Her priorities have been changed from seeking him for her selfish needs to seeking only and His Kingdom and His desires for her. Her prayer is “Let your kingdom come, and your will be done, on Earth (in me) as it is heaven!

The Bride has made herself ready. She has endured the day of his coming. She can now stand when he appears. She now can bring him offerings of righteousness. She has been made a king and priest to her God.

Now she is positioned for her purposes for His Millennial Kingdom and she can sing the new song found in Revelation chapter 5: 9-10 “And they sang a new song: “Worthy are You to take the scroll and open its seals, because You were slain, and by Your blood You purchased for God those from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. 10You have made them into a kingdom, priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.” 
 Beloved, the cleansing judgment are now at work in the house of the Lord. Are you seeking the pure holy love of God to rule and reign in you? If you are looking for him, His appearance will be to you like refining fire and fuller soap. It will change you from glory to glory to be ready as a bride all adorned in white for God’s end time purposes and plans. You will rule and reign with Him.

To those in the house of God that refuse this work of pure holy love they will not be ready. You will could become like the 5 foolish virgins who do not have the extra oil in you lamps to go out to meet him at the midnight hour. You wounds won’t be healed. You heart will remain broken. You will live as  a spiritual captive of the enemy.

You will be behind prison doors, You won’t have your spiritual eyesight developed. You won’t be at liberty, and you will not know the “acceptable year of God’s favor.” You may  enter heaven as one who “just escape the fire” but their whole life will burn up in the presence of the Lord. Is that what you really desire? God has life for you and to have it more abundantly. Don’t you want that?

Paul write to the church in Corinth to choose wisely on what foundation we  build our life in him. Chapter 1:10 "According to the [remarkable] grace of God which was given to me [to prepare me for my task], like a skillful master builder I laid a foundation, and now another is building on it.

But each one must be careful how he builds on it, 11 for no one can lay a foundation other than the one which is [already] laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 But if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,

13 each one’s work will be clearly shown [for what it is]; for the day [of judgment fire] will disclose it, because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality and character and worth of each person’s work.

14 If any person’s work which he has built [on this foundation, that is, any outcome of his effort] remains [and survives this test of fire], he will receive a reward. 15 But if any person’s work is burned up [by the test], he will suffer the loss [of his reward]; yet he himself will be saved, but only as [one who has barely escaped] through fire.


May the Lord Himself encourage us today to seek him, to wait upon him, to experience the true pure holy love continually. May we allow that pure holy love to finish the work of refining us like gold and silver.

May we be made ready now by that love to be able to stand the loss of all things for the sake of gaining oneness with Jesus as His bride. May our God give us the eyes of Abraham who looked for a city whose architect and builder was God himself. Amen.
