“Who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire ... 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” (Mal. 3:2-3).
Dear Kerugma Supporter,
This Bulletin is just a reminder that the two DVDs by Petr Jašek released earlier this month, are available at the special launch price of R79.95 each. This special holds until 31 August.
We are excited for those who have already purchased the DVDs. Our mission is to produce top quality teaching DVDs for the benefit of all who view them. It was such a blessing for us to be able to film and edit these particular DVDs and our desire is for as many as possible to have the privilege of viewing them. We are especially excited about our filming of a metal-smith working metal in a refiner’s fire. As the example in Proverbs 25:4 which states, “Take away the dross from the silver, and there comes out a vessel for the smith.”
Our purpose in filming the smithy at work is to reveal the workings of the way metal is refined until the image of the silversmith can be seen reflected in his work – and just as the Lord is using the verse above and to which Petr refers. Thus the title being The Refiners Fire. He says in this DVD, that when the silversmith smelts the silver and leaves it in the fire for too long, the silver will be destroyed. Isaiah 1:22 also says: “Your silver has become dross.” He then explains that someone once asked a silversmith how he knows when it is the correct moment to remove the silver from the fire. Petr tells how the silversmith just smiles and explains that to be the easiest part of the process. He works at melting the silver and removing the dross until he can see his own face in the melted silver. It is only then that he removes the metal from the smelter’s furnace!
In the same way, by working in his children lives, it is as though the Lord is placing them in the refiner’s fire until he can see the “image of His Son” reflected in their lives.
R79.95 only until 31 August 2019

When you watch this special DVD and see how the face of the silversmith is reflected in the melting metal you should, in addition to the above mentioned verses, also read the following verses in their contexts. When you do that, you will better understand the image of the silversmith in the Bible:
Isaiah 48:10 “Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.”
Jeremiah 6:30 “They call them rejected silver, because the Lord has rejected them.’”
Ezekiel 22:22 “As silver is melted in the furnace, so you will be melted in the midst of it; and you will know that I, the Lord, have poured out My wrath on you.”
Zechariah 13:9 “And I will bring the third part through the fire, refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested.”
It is wonderful to know that our heavenly Silversmith also knows exactly how and when to take us out of the fire. Only once His purpose is fulfilled and His Name is glorified through the process (James 5:11).
In these DVDs Petr Jašek also testifies how he himself experienced that “God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it” (1 Cor. 10:13).
May we remind you that the DVDs are also available online on the website of Kerugma at www.kerugma.org to rent or to buy – also at a reduced price as indicated until 31 August.
May the Lord Jesus bless you.
In His Name,
Naas and Marina le Roux
