Jesus in Malachi 3:3

Malachi 3:3 “He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the LORD offerings in righteousness.

This is our Jesus…seated in glory.  His eyes are like – well, let me have the apostle say it:

Revelation 1:14 …His eyes were like a flame of fire.

These eyes see into the deepest parts of our soul.  And if we remain mindful of these eyes, they will purge the evil from our hearts, for we only want to think and be motivated by what pleases Him.  Thus will we be purified for Him.  As Paul wrote to Titus:

Titus 2:14 [Christ] gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.

Thus is Jesus Christ our Lord the fulfillment of what God promised through the prophet Malachi in Malachi 3:3.
