Silk: River of Fire

During a Facebook live (on our Dyed4you Ministries facebook page), I read this silk word, share a testimony about it (an earlier sharing is also included below), and some flag ministry time. The word is included here in written form as well for you to read. I pray it blesses you!

The name of this silk is River of Fire. The colors in it are:

  • China red representing covenant of grace and blood of Christ
  • Orange representing refiners fire
  • Light turquoise representing river of life
  • Electric blue representing intensity
  • Deep dark blue representing presence of God

The scriptures that go with it are:

  • 1 Peter 1:14-16 (AMP) [Live] as obedient children [of God]; do not be conformed to the evil desires which governed you in your ignorance [before you knew the requirements and transforming power of the good news regarding salvation]. But like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves in all your conduct [be set apart from the world by your godly character and moral courage]; because it is written, “You shall be holy (set apart), for I am holy.”
  • Philippians 4:8 (AMP) Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart].
  • 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (VOICE) Don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who comes from God and dwells inside of you? You do not own yourself. You have been purchased at a great price, so use your body to bring glory to God!
  • Ephesians 2:10 (VOICE) For we are the product of His hand, heaven’s poetry etched on lives, created in the Anointed, Jesus, to accomplish the good works God arranged long ago.
  • 2 Corinthians 3:18 As all of us reflect the Lord’s glory with faces that are not covered with veils, we are being changed into his image with ever-increasing glory. This comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

{sensing} A river of refining fire. It’s time to change thinking, mindsets, heart motivations and actions/deeds. The fire cleanses, purifies, refines, transforms from glory to glory. It answers the desire to become a new creation. It washes away the old thinking patterns and behaviors and restores with the glory of God and His mindset, His desires, His righteous and glorifying purpose.

Words connected to both the Scent of Heaven’s Refiners Fire and Holy Fire oils are connected to this.

Though submitting ourselves to the Refiner’s fire can be a painful process, He gives us the grace to walk it out and in the end the shining beauty of our countenance once refined makes the process well worthwhile.  Now as a purified vessel, we have more value (just as higher qualities of gold cost more) in the sense that He can trust us with more because He has removed impurities that keep us from being effective in ministry.  He burns out the jealousy, fear, competition, etc. – the dross.  As we walk in purity, we are more accurate reflections of Him, as a result we are precious.

When we are on fire for the Father, the passion that burns in us is stronger than the fire the enemy would send against us.  The fire is a weapon. Our passion matters. We must submit to the refining as well as continuing to burn for Him.

…it’s time to allow Him to burn away that which is not beneficial. He desires to take us to a new level, but the weights that hold us back must be removed – burned away. John 3:30 speaks of us decreasing so that the Lord may increase – as we die to our flesh, as we allow it to be burned away in the baptism of fire, the Lord becomes greater because more of Him is seen in us. We reflect more of Him.

The lyrics from Vineyard’s “Refiners Fire” are connected to this silk:

Purify my heart, Let me be as gold and precious silver
Purify my heart, Let me be as gold, pure gold
Refiner’s fire, My heart’s one desire Is to be holy, Set apart for You, Lord.
I choose to be holy, Set apart for You, my Master, Ready to do Your will
Purify my heart, Cleanse me from within And make me holy
Purify my heart, Cleanse me from my sin, Deep within

A Prophetic Nugget called “Walk in Purity of Heart, Mind, and Spirit” from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this.

1 Peter 1:15 (VOICE) Since the One who called you is holy, be holy in all you do.

Beloved, it’s time to step up to a new level. Things that were permissible in the old season must be released for you to move forward into all I’ve called you to. It’s time to let go or be dragged behind and miss My perfect will. Be holy, beloved, for I AM holy. Check your heart, your mind, and your deeds to make certain they are rightly aligned with Me. You know My voice.

Choose that which is best, not that which is acceptable. My love for you is unconditional, but the fulfillment you will experience from walking in the calling I have for you far surpasses the temporary “pleasures” of that which seeks to waylay you. Be holy, beloved. Allow the refining of My Spirit to do its work. Walk in purity of heart, mind, and spirit.

Beloved, stop clinging to things that are dragging you down. You hold them tightly as though I am a cruel father trying to take them away. In the same way a dog loves a cooked chicken bone though it splinters too easily and is dangerous for it to have and if you try to take it the dog growls and cowers not wanting to give up its prize, so you are clinging to things that may seem enjoyable but are truly damaging to you. So am I reaching to take them from you? Yes, I’m asking you to release them, but from a place of love and protection rather than a place of discipline. You aren’t in trouble, beloved. I love you. That is not in question. But I desire the best for you, and it’s time to move forward.

You know My voice and you sense My Spirit, be mindful of My leadings. Open your hands, release the sins that so easily beset you, and walk forward with Me. You cannot fathom the level of redemption I have in store for you. Glorious! Walk through My fire, beloved, and like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, you will come out without even the scent of smoke on you. Such is the purity and holiness you will walk in.

Another Prophetic Nugget from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this. It is called “Be Changed in My Presence.”

Matthew 27:51 (TLB) And look! The curtain secluding the Holiest Place in the Temple was split apart from top to bottom; and the earth shook, and rocks broke,

Beloved, I removed the separations between us. I’ve granted you access and encouraged you to come boldly and expectantly. I want time with you face-to-face. I want My glory to reflect on your countenance. I want you to spend time in My presence not asking for anything or feeling the need to do anything, just simply being. Being together. Being quiet. Being one.

Come and be changed in My presence. Come and be moved. Let Me love you and teach you how to love like Me. To simply be more like Me. Holy. And hear the angels surrounding My throne crying “Holy! Holy! Holy!” Be immersed in Me. Let the atmosphere of heaven penetrate your soul. Be forever changed in My presence and made whole.

A final Prophetic Nugget from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this. It’s called “Be Excited and Stay the Course.”

1 Corinthians 2:9 (AMP) but just as it is written [in Scripture], “Things which the eye has not seen and the ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, who obey Him, and who gratefully recognize the benefits that He has bestowed].”

Beloved, you cannot begin to imagine what I have planned for you. Fear not, for I have prepared you and am readying you, and you will operate in My strength, but what is coming is glorious! Stay the course. Refuse to be waylaid. I have promised you good things – a hope and a future – and I AM good to My word.

Let your excitement and anticipation build. I AM glorious and when I move I change things. I AM taking you from glory to glory. Prepared to be astonished at all I will do through you. You have yielded and you have chosen to be purified, see what I will do! Be excited and stay the course, the best is yet to come.

A word called “I Have Planted You into My Kingdom” from June Reinke of Prophetic Light is connected to this.

Forever I have planted you into My kingdom, and you will not be uprooted, says the LORD. For what I do is done. Even as I have begun a good work in you, I will complete it. I will perfect what concerns you and you will not be lost or undone. You will not be empty, but full. You will not be impure, but I have made you holy onto Me, because you have received ME and what I have done for you by My finished work on the cross and shed blood for you. You are My Workmanship. I never abandon My Work, but finish and perfect it. You will be spotless and perfect as I work in you My good pleasure. Trust that you are in My hands that formed you for purpose and for My pleasure and My glory, says the LORD.

I Am forever yours, says the LORD. You are forever Mine. I have brought you into My kingdom and planted you there as a tree of righteousness, and you will not be removed. I watch over My Word in you to perform it. My Word and My Will and My Work are the same and always in complete agreement. For My will shall be done in you. It is what I watch over to perform in you. For My Work shall be accomplished in you and through you by My Spirit in you, even as I have spoken. It is not changeable, even as I remain the same, always. I will do exactly what I have said, and it shall be accomplished according to My plan and purpose. For I Am GOD. I cannot be mocked, and what I said, I will do. What I purpose will come to pass, and I will honor My promises, because you have become My own by your faith and trust in Me, says the LORD.

It has been prayed over and anointed with the Scent of Heaven’s Be Holy, which is used as reminder and agreement to pursue holiness. The  verses that go with this oil are:

  • “For I am the LORD who brought you up out of the land of Egypt to be your God. You shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.” Leviticus 11:45
  • “For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness.” 1 Thessalonians 4:7

The deeper meaning of this oil shares that “Though we cannot “earn” our salvation (since it is freely given by grace), we still have a responsibility to pursue holiness and walk (to the best of our ability) in a manner pleasing to the Father as a response to His amazing gift of grace. The scent of Amber (which is a resin) is known to linger on the body, which is reminiscent to the way the aroma of holiness can linger around a person who chooses to walk in a manner that pursues it.”

We pray it blesses you!

NOTE: If you’re wondering why I’ve shared this silk letter, I explain on my personal blog in a post called God Speaking Through Silk why I began sharing these on my personal blog. Later, I felt led to share some on the Dyed4you Ministries blog as well. So I share some here and some there (you can find the ones there in the silk words category). To find out more about the words we birth – including how they are created and what is typically included – visit our About Our Silk Letters and Art Words page.

And though I don’t post these for the purpose of selling them, I know sometimes one will just grab you and you KNOW you’re supposed to have it. If that’s the case you can check on Dyed4you Readymade to see if I have one completed already or you can see what types of products I offer and request I make you one in this style.

FB Live from August 2017

I went live on Facebook shortly after I’d created this silk and shared some of the testimony then as well. The picture the young lady I mention had drawn is to the right along with the silk so you can see how amazingly close they are.  Also I mention the Permissible vs. Beneficial post from my personal blog and the picture I mention can be found in this post.

And here’s just some of my initial freak out because it matched another silk Papa had given me – LOL 🙂

Here’s several River of Fire silks in motion
