• “My soul remained in a kind of heavenly elysium. So far as I am capable of making a comparison, I think that what I felt each minute, during the continuance of the whole time, was worth more than all the outward comfort and pleasure, which I had enjoyed in my whole life put together. It was a pure delight, which fed and satisfied the soul. It was peasure, without the least sting, or any interruption. It was a sweetness, which my soul was lost in. It seemed to be all that my feeble frame could sustain, of that fulness of joy, which is felt by those, who behold the face of Christ, and share his love in the heavenly world.” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards

Are you being Consumed for utter Consummation or utter Destruction? by Michelle

In Hebrews 12:29, we are told that “our God is a consuming fire.” And all throughout the Old Testament, God is either consuming our enemies or His enemies.

In the previous verses, we are also told that He is shaking all that can be shaken, so that we may be unmoveable in that day of judgment because we have planted our feet into the everlasting God which is by GRACE.

So, ALL are being consumed, though some are NOT RESISTING this grace to be transformed, while others are simply being enemies of God without excepting this grace.

Consummation, in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, means to finish, complete. So if we are taking His word by faith, and living NOW for eternal life, we will be made complete in HIM. That is HIS promise from HIM. (Jn 3:2)

What are we being consumed with? Preparation? Are we allowing Christ to consume away the dross in order to be ready for is second coming? Or spending it toiling after the things in this world? Working to become more complete in Him? or being consumed by things of the world? Where does your consumption lie?

In the end we will ALL be consumed, either by choice, which comes out of a fear and reverence for God, or by consequence, because we did not choose this way of reverence.
