And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part THROUGH THE FIRE, AND will REFINE THEM AS SILVER is refined, AND will TRY THEM AS GOLD is tried: they shall call on My Name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is My People: and they shall say, THE LORD IS MY GOD. Zechariah 13:8-9. During the coming Tribulation many Jews in Israel will die, but at some point, 1/3 of them will come to Christ through Repentance unto Salvation. Very quickly, here's the main point. The Lord will use Tribulation as the "refining fire" used to purify silver with great "heat" to bring the dross of worldliness to the surface to be removed by the Lord. These new Believers will also be tested, like gold, with spiritual "chemicals" to test for Purity and tested with "pressure" to test for the proper hardness. Pure gold has a certain amount of softness when pressure is applied and the Lord Himself will apply His Pressure to Prove these Believers are up to His Standards. Notice, THE LORD HIMSELF applies Fire and does the Testing by whatever means, whomever people, with circumstances and situations allowed, again, BY THE LORD, and these people come through with flying colors. As a side note, could this be the Lord also Preparing the 144,000 virgin male Jews to go throughout the world Preaching Christ? (See Revelation 14). As you, Believer, go through your day today, Trust the Lord to use everything at His beck and call to Purify and Test you, all the way to CHRISTLIKENESS, AND THANK HIM FOR IT. It ultimately all comes from His Hand anyway to bring you into Himself. Jew or Gentile, Salvation is yours, just for the asking. The worldly will suffer unto Death. Believers will suffer unto Life and Life Eternal. God says, "Don't sweat the small stuff, everything is small stuff, and I have EVERYTHING under control". So sit back, relax, and Rejoice as you will, Be Blessed.
