Purity

In the Word of God, gold was at its height, at its premium, when it was beaten into shape by the craftsmanship of Bezaleel and Aholiab. They were the makers of the Ark of the Covenant.

Beaten gold is far superior to molded gold. The reason: For gold to be molded and melted in ancient times it had to be mixed with lesser metals. The flames created by wood could not reach a high enough temperature to mold and melt the gold which led to lesser metals being introduced. A lesser metal than gold will melt at a lower temperature because of the mixture, but it drastically lowers its value.

It was beaten gold that formed an Ark but it was molten gold that formed a golden calf.

The choice is clearly mine. I can add all sorts of alloys to my calling, to my purpose in the Kingdom, to the anointing that rests on my life, but in the process I rob the power and ability of God to work with a pure vessel.

    Nice. Reminds me of Malachi 3:3. A research was done on the process of refining silver and how the refiner knows that it is pure. The silver is put in the hottest spot in the fire until the refiner sees his image on it! The same with God. He refines us until we reflect his image.
