the reason for the fire?

That answer is given in the text....the fire is to burn the weeds.

If you look up the phrase "Too much time on their hands" in Webster's it says: "See, Perry, Verna."

This occures while we are here on earth...by trials and tribulations and tests...being living sacrifices unto the Lord...sacrificing our fleshly desires and our will, and choosing instead God's will for us...which pleases Him...and we are being perfected...purified by fire...the burning of our flesh. God loves the sweet aroma of our burning flesh in His nostrils...

I prefer calling all the ways I choose to spend my time as being passionate...no matter what it is. I am passionate about the things I care about...and I cannot think of anythng as important as salvation!...

So that begs the question -

What of the "thieves on the cross" - those that give their lives on their death beds - or my favorite: the rest of Christendom who die imperfect, yet belong to Him? We all know precious people who are 95% pure, right?

What of the final purging? I'm with you - NO flesh will glory in His presence.

Likewise Verna, (His) Blood is thicker than this forum.

The cross was the fire for that thief.
