Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be tried, smelted, and refined…” [Daniel 12:10 AMP]

The preciousness of the gift of choice is the difference between being ”Blessed, happy, fortunate, spiritually prosperous…” [v.12] or living as the wicked do, without understanding the times or the ways of God.

Just as the Israelites were blinded by their disobedience and could not ‘see’ the coming of the Messiah, the church or individual that fails to purify him/her self will be blinded and without understanding of the present move and presence of God that preludes the second coming.  But, ”Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God”.  The mystery is unveil-able to you Paul prayed, ”…that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation of insight into mysteries and secrets in the deep and intimate knowledge of Him” [Ephesians 1:17]  The veils of this mystery are lifted by love, wisdom and added to this today is—listening.

This is the reason for increase in angelic activity and man’s great need to listen closely to the voice of the Spirit of God.  Those who have ears let him hear!

Christmas will never be ‘blotted out’, because what began that Holy night was the incarnation—the investment of God into the earth as a force continually filling all things.  ”Which is His body, the fullness of Him Who fills all in all for in that body lives the full measure of Him Who makes everything complete, and Who fills everything everywhere with Himself. “ [Ephesians 1:23 AMP]
