“For lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.”  (Amos 9:9)

Every sifting come by divine command and permission.  God says He will sift the righteous from among the world, God is a righteous judge and “His eyes are upon the sinful and wicked nation, our graciously God will separate between the righteous and wicked, He will deliver them from all the world’s calamities, even though some of you who are righteous maybe pious, God will not see you as wicked, for the Judge of all the earth will do right, more than right as to slay the righteous with the wicked.  “That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?”  {Genesis 18:25}.  Where ever the righteous pilgrimage journey may take him, God has his eyes upon him.  Whatever has shaken your life to the core, or whatever it is that have scattered every plan of direction in your life, God is saying today, He will not take His eyes off you, He will take care to separate you from the wicked, ” (God will take care to separate between the corn and chaff by sifting and letting the chaff fall to the ground and the corn preserved (saved).  God says the righteous one among them, not one of them shall be lost.  God says I will sift the righteous, Satan, may hold the sieve, he may be holding you in sin, or holding you in bondage of generational curses, but keep your faith in God, because the overruling hand of the Master will accomplish the work that He started in you.  He will keep you pure through the storm that may be beating upon your life, and He will destroy the enemy by the very destructive process that Satan intended for you.  God can use the work of Satan for His glory, and for our eternal profit.  The Lord Jesus will surely use the wind from His nostrils and divide his precious ones from the wicked, for everyone that say, Lord, Lord is not of Him.   Jewels of Nuggets “But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity” (Luke 13:27).  The winnowing process of the Holy Spirit must be performed, it will reveal all truth according to scriptures and the husk and chaff must fly before the Holy Spirit, leaving only true worshipers.

Just as wheat is preserved by the farmer.  God is careful that He doesn’t lose one soul that come unto Him, God himself sifts, and therefore it is stern and terrible work; He sifts the believer in all places, “among all nations of people,” He is very effectual in His sifting, “like corn that is sifted in a sieve”, and yet after all of these things: tears, loneliness, heartbreaks, fears, worries, trials, sickness, and deaths not one of His chosen ones is lost. The Apostle Paul, write  “who shall Separate Us from the love of Christ?  Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  “As it is written, for thy sake we are killed all the day long, we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter”.  Jewels of Nugget “I like this, it gives recognition to the true worshiper after the effectual sifting by the hand of God, The verse says, “Nay (No), in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us”.  (Roman 8:35-37)  Knowing who’s you are, makes the journey easy.  Jesus said, “For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light”.  Every individual believer is precious in the sight of the Lord, a shepherd would not lose one sheep, and if you should lose a coin or child you would search frantically trying to find it.  And you are just mere humans from the dust of the earth, made in the likeness of God to feel and care for blessing, and accomplishments here on earth.  Well, the Master of our soul is more than our intellect can imagine, He is the True and Living God the alpha and Omega, and there is no one greater than Him, He is the all-Knowing and all Power in His hand God. The Master of our soul will not lose “one of His redeemed people.  “Let the redeemed of the Lord, say so”.  So therefore if we are the redeemed of the Lord, we can rejoice that we are preserved in Christ Jesus.

Well, another Jewels of Nuggets for the soul.  Praise the Lord.
