THE SILVER SPOON, PLATTER AND COINS”
I was in a place in my time with the Lord and I saw Jesus holding a silver spoon in His right hand. He was standing at a table. It was HIS table. When I looked on the table I saw a silver platter type bowl, and three stacks of silver coins each of a different size. I knew there was a significant message in this vision that needed a Holy Spirit interpretation, so I began seeking the Lord for His word. The following was given to me.
The silver speaks of the refining process I believe is happening now. The Lord is walking His eternal bride through this process in each of their journeys. “But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire, And like launderers soap. He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; HE will purify the sons of Levi and purge them as gold and silver That they may offer to the Lord an offering in righteousness. Malachi 3:2-3
The silver many times is found in scrap metals. The material must go through a process of adding to and then put in the fire to burn away the dross so only the pure silver remains. God chose to put the beautiful light of Christ in our scrap earthen vessels. (a) The Lord says that our works on earth will go through the fire and only the purest silver will remain,(b) so refining is a good and glorious process we should welcome from a loving Father God. His goodness and mercy follows us all the days of our life. This process happens many times in our journeys. I believe the Lord is saying that the refining is happening now.
The silver spoon represents our lives tightly griped in His hand of power. Empowered in His hands through refining we are poured out to feed and to serve Jesus to the world. We are sent to the one in front of us as well as into the market place, the mission field or the nations. The refining process produces in our lives works that bear much eternal fruit. We become pure silver that will reflect the image of our beloved Lord.
The bowl/platter represents our lives filling the bowls of incense in heaven to be poured out on the earth. (c) It represents the refining of our intercessions, our worship in spirit and truth, and our labor to make disciples and birth mature sons in the Kingdom. The Lord is refining our God given gifts and talents; the loaves and fishes we give to Him to multiply for the masses. Even pure hearts and clean hands require a refining process in order to be ready to carry His weighty latter glory.
The three stacks of coins represent our sacrificial gifts to financially supply the work of the Kingdom of God. They vary in financial status and gifting but each stack of coins is equally important. The refining process is to divorce us from mammon spirit (d) and covenant our lives into the pure unhindered flow of releasing the wealth of the world into the Kingdom of God. Because of this refining we will see a mighty harvest of souls.
Jesus is preparing His table before us in the presence of our enemies. (e) Today I believe we can clearly see this table. We must rejoice and not fear because our God loves us enough to make our lives as pure silver in the refining fires and persecutions of these evil latter days. When this refining process subsides our lives will be overlaid with the gold of His glory. His bride will be pure, holy, blameless and without spot or wrinkle. (f) Then the Spirit and the Bride will be as one and will say, come Lord Jesus, the way has been prepared. (g)
