Purge, Purify, and Empower

Recently, through prophetic vision, I have witnessed the church being visited with a fresh Baptism of the Fire of the Holy Spirit. I heard three words, and I saw her walking through three wonderful seasons, each new one more glorious than the last.


Holy Spirit and Fire.

First, anything not sustained by the call of God, the will of God, and the Grace of God will be purged by the Fire of the Holy Spirit. (Luke 3:16 – 17) Both sin and soulish activities will be consumed. Wood, hay, and stubble will go. Some things that were once helpful will be found to have served their purpose. With the clutter gone, things will be so much easier, so much simpler. There will be wonderful clarity of vision. Where to go, what to do, and how to do it will be obvious.

This will be a time when righteousness will shine like the sun. The air will feel clean, and clear, and crisp.

Refining Fire.


Second, like gold heated in a smelter, what remains will be purified and refined by the Fire of the Holy Spirit. (Malachi 3:3) Impurities will be removed. Motives, callings, assignments, and desires will be tested, and only that which is pure will remain. Naked ambition will be exposed for what it is. But in this process the weak knees will be strengthened, the hands that hang down will be raised up.

Profound peace and great stability will rule the house. Hearts governed by holiness will be at rest.


As the church experiences Purging and Purifying, the Fire of the Holy Spirit will be increasingly present to Empower for miracles, signs, and wonders. (Acts 1:8) Over the years we have witnessed a few signs and wonders, but God has much more in store.

Holy Spirit Power.

Since Purging and Purifying are but preparation for the release of God’s power, the deeper they go, and the more extensive their work, the greater will be the Empowering. The Fire of the Holy Spirit will release the Power of God in ways that will be a marvellous work and a wonder. It will have the explosive power of the automotive internal combustion engine, and it will rapidly propel the church forward into the depths of her destiny. God will confirm the Word with accompanying signs. The old will feel young again, the weak will feel strong, and the infirmed will walk in restored health. Creative miracles will astound.

The joy of the Lord will abound in the House of the Lord. The Kingdom of God will exercise dominion, to the delight of all.
