Fuller’s Soap

“Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me:
and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple,
even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in:
behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.
But who may abide the day of his coming?

and who shall stand when he appeareth?
for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:
and he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver:
and he shall purify the sons of Levi,
and purge them as gold and silver,
that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.”
– Malachi 3:1-3 KJV

Fuller’s Soap – alkaline substances whose ashes were used for soap. These chemicals remove oil and the dirt that clings to it.

Refiner’s Fire – to bring to a fine or a pure state; free from impurities:
to purify from what is coarse, vulgar, or debasing

How loving You are to bring me through the refiner’s fire and to make me like Fuller’ Soap. It’s been hot, and it’s been rough, but I am so grateful that You have saved me from the vulgar, debasing, coarse things that were taught to me as normal, and from the oil and the dirt that clings to my life. You desire me to be pure. No one else could take ashes and make it pure! Thank You for coming for me, Jesus! Thank You for having faith in me. Thank You for Your Holy Spirit putting an undying love and an undying faith for You in me! Thank You for coming!
You make think on the hymn... How Firm a Foundation!
The last stanza being most emphasized! ❤

How Firm a Foundation

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

“Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,
For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand.”

“When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.”

“When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.”

“E’en down to old age all My people shall prove
My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;
And then, when grey hairs shall their temples adorn,
Like lambs they shall still in My bosom be borne.”

“The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no, never, no, never forsake!”
