A Priceless Gem is Being Formed — IN YOU!

Tuesday, February 28, 2012 (6:24 am)

1 Peter 4:12-13 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

We've been receiving dozens of emails lately from people who are really feeling the pressure, and who have expressed gratitude and appreciation for our devotions over the last few days.  Reading through some of the replies, my initial thought was – wow, God is creating some magnificent diamonds!

A diamond is the hardest natural substance known, having been created by intense heat and pressure. I'm seeing believers becoming like diamonds, created the only way possible, through fiery trials…and then, the final precision sculpting by the Master Jeweler as He cuts them into priceless gems. I believe this is not just a metaphor, but a true "last days" vision, for, as these diamonds are prepared, and as the light of Yeshua begins beaming through them, I'm seeing thousands of rays of light impacting this darkening world around us…all for His glory!

Don't despise the discipline, the intense pressure you are currently under, the testing of your faith. Rather, as hard as it can be, try to embrace them in light of what they truly are — the very method of God's forming you into a priceless diamond for the world to see, and be amazed at the beauty of Yeshua shining bright and clear as crystal through your very life!

    Hallelujah, Brother George.

    I myself have been thinking much of what you have written these past few weeks.

    And I am so glad of your news. Mighty men and women of God being trained and raised up in these last days. Continue in ministering to them — to us. And like you said, "WOW!"

    Also, thank you for giving me glimpses of what is happening outside… they are sure encouragement for my own works for God. I am reassured, knowing that God is working… even if I don't see the results for myself.

    God bless you and your family. :-)

    Speaking of Diamonds, I receieved April 28, 2007 a big blessing. Diamonds appeared to me in my room and real pear diamonds went into my foot. This is no trash talk! This happened to me in real life. As of this day I thank GOD I am on the process of having my own t-shirt business like Hurley, Harley Davidson, Puma I am using them as examples. It was approved through Virginia TradeMark reg.
