Intro: Info on flash point....

(From Wikipedia)

The flash point of a volatile material is the lowest temperature at which it can vaporize to form an ignitable mixture in air. Measuring a flash point requires an ignition source. At the flash point, the vapor may cease to burn when the source of ignition is removed.

The flash point is not to be confused with the autoignition temperature, which does not require an ignition source, or the fire point, the temperature at which the vapor continues to burn after being ignited. Neither the flash point nor the fire point is dependent on the temperature of the ignition source, which is much higher.

The flash point is often used as a descriptive characteristic of liquid fuel, and it is also used to help characterize the fire hazards of liquids. “Flash point” refers to both flammable liquids and combustible liquids. There are various standards for defining each term. Liquids with a flash point less than 140.9 °F or100.0 °F—depending upon the standard being applied—are considered flammable, while liquids with a flash point above those temperatures are considered combustible.[1]

Now that we know all we ever wanted to know about flash points let us read our text for this morning...

If you may have noticed all of these passages have some things in common...

All have reference to God in one form of the Trinity or other...

(1) God

(2) Jesus

(3-4) Holy Spirit

All refer to fire or heat either directly or indirectly...

Last and most importantly for us this morning is that The Lord Jesus Christ through His leading and anointing of The Holy Spirit has tied all of these passages together...TO BRING HIS CHURCH TO A FLASH POINT!!!

Let’s look closer at these passages, starting with Pro 17:3...

Pro 17:3 The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts.

There is not a heart in this place that God doesn’t know every single thought, deed, corner, crevice, room, partition...whatever you want to call it. In short nothing hides from the sight of God. He knows you; He knows more about you than you care to share with anyone!

Heat brings these precious metals to the point of melting for purification...

God tries our hearts...His searing gaze brings us to purification...
