2 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. 3 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.
This prophecy speaks about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ given to God's rebellious people, the Jews. Please note that God is like a Refiner's Fire. His Refining, Consuming, Spiritual Fire will cause the Jews to understand and accept God's Righteousness.
We know that God's character never changes. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. His Fire is always a consuming, refining and purifying corrective judgement. It ultimately leads to acceptance of God's Righteousness.
