What is the leaven except that which is not of My Spirit? (Matthew 13:33; Matthew 16:5-12; 1 Corinthians 5;6-8; Galatians 5:7-9; John 6:32-35)
What are the tares except those who are not called by My Name? (Matthew 13:24-30 & 36-43)
What is the dross except for that which is rejected of Me? (Psalms 119:119; Proverbs 25:4-5; Isaiah 1:22 & 25-26; Ezekiel 22:17-19)
One is coming that is come to collect on the debts of the past. One is coming who is intent upon death and destruction. One is coming who is the fruit of the desire of fallen man. He is both the author and finisher of destruction and he is among you.
A window of opportunity is closing. It is the opportunity to see the Truth and to allow My spirit to purge you of all that is familiar with the enemy of your soul.
Let Me draw you aside and challenge you with the Truth: Your hurts, disappointments, and fears have become fallow ground for the seed of the enemy. With the pain came a seed and he is soon to call upon that seed.
You have come to a point where you have embraced the seed and have even protected it in your heart and in your mind.
[You think that you will always know it when you see it. This is not the truth. First of all, men assess themselves in light of their own rules and regulations—your own determination of what is "good" or "bad." You are a broken rule that cannot rightly measure anything. Only My Spirit can detect, convict, and heal the Sin-sick soul. A second consideration is the context in which you are trying to determine good and evil. As the context changes you suppose that "good" has grown to include things that are not a part of My Spirit but rather are apart from My Spirit.] (From Prophetic Lesson on Total Transformation 5-26-2011)
I am telling you that he is coming for what is his. He will activate in your members his volition and you will not know it until it is too late.
I am warning you now to divest of all that is not of My Spirit. I know that you do not know the difference in terms of your deepest pain. But you have seen these things surface when pressure is applied in your life. Instead of recognizing this process of purification you often redouble your efforts to make right that which is wrong.
[You must allow My Spirit to challenge your prejudices, presuppositions and determinations. Allow the conviction of My Spirit to effect change. The tension that you feel is the result of the fact that you are resisting My Voice in your life. In coming days the pressure to conform to the world will attain a level that relatively few will withstand. You cannot wait to allow the transformation to begin when you are in the midst of such pressure. It will be like a great vice that will grip all the inhabitants of the earth to force submission. But My Spirit will come as a great whirlwind and destroy all that stands against Me. Those who are already purified by My Spirit need have no fear.] (From Prophetic Lesson on Total Transformation 5-26-2011)
Three months will bring a shift for which you must be prepared. Your only hope of preparation is a thorough cleansing. When he comes you then will be impervious to his call.
>Examine your life. What theme always emerges? This is the dross that must be removed by My Spirit. My Fire cleanses what is not of Me. The fire of the enemy destroys completely. You do not know your Friend from your foe but I am waiting to show you the way to illumination and transformation before it is too late…

2 Corinthians 11:1-4 I hope you will be patient with me as I keep on talking like a fool. Please bear with me. 2 I am jealous for you with the jealousy of God himself. For I promised you as a pure bride to one husband, Christ. 3 But I fear that somehow you will be led away from your pure and simple devotion to Christ, just as Eve was deceived by the serpent. 4 You seem to believe whatever anyone tells you, even if they preach about a different Jesus than the one we preach, or a different Spirit than the one you received, or a different kind of gospel than the one you believed. NLT 2 Timothy 2:21 21 So whoever cleanses himself [from what is ignoble and unclean, who separates himself from contact with contaminating and corrupting influences] will [then himself] be a vessel set apart and useful for honorable and noble purposes, consecrated and profitable to the Master, fit and ready for any good work.

Matthew 13:33 33 Jesus also used this illustration: "The Kingdom of Heaven is like yeast used by a woman making bread. Even though she used a large amount of flour, the yeast permeated every part of the dough." NLT
Matthew 16:5-12 5 Later, after they crossed to the other side of the lake, the disciples discovered they had forgotten to bring any food. 6 "Watch out!" Jesus warned them. "Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees." 7 They decided he was saying this because they hadn't brought any bread. 8 Jesus knew what they were thinking, so he said, "You have so little faith! Why are you worried about having no food? 9 Won't you ever understand? Don't you remember the five thousand I fed with five loaves, and the baskets of food that were left over? 10 Don't you remember the four thousand I fed with seven loaves, with baskets of food left over? 11 How could you even think I was talking about food? So again I say, 'Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.' "12 Then at last they understood that he wasn't speaking about yeast or bread but about the false teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees. NLT
1 Corinthians 5:6-8 6 [About the condition of your church] your boasting is not good [indeed, it is most unseemly and entirely out of place]. Do you not know that [just] a little leaven will ferment the whole lump [of dough]? 7 Purge (clean out) the old leaven that you may be fresh (new) dough, still uncontaminated [as you are], for Christ, our Passover [Lamb], has been sacrificed. 8 Therefore, let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with leaven of vice and malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened [bread] of purity (nobility, honor) and sincerity and [unadulterated] truth. AMP
Galatians 5:7-9 7 You were running the race nobly. Who has interfered in (hindered and stopped you from) your heeding and following the Truth? 8 This [evil] persuasion is not from Him Who called you [Who invited you to freedom in Christ]. 9 A little leaven (a slight inclination to error, or a few false teachers) leavens the whole lump [it perverts the whole conception of faith or misleads the whole church]. AMP
John 6:32-35 32 Then Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world." 34 Then they said to Him, "Lord, give us this bread always." 35 And Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. NKJV
Matthew 13:24-30 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, 'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?' 28 He said to them, 'An enemy has done this.' The servants said to him, 'Do you want us then to go and gather them up?' 29 But he said, 'No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, "First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn."'" NKJV
Matthew 13:36-43 Then Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying, "Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field." 37 He answered and said to them: "He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. 38 The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. 39 The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. 40 Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. 41 The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, 42 and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear! NKJV

Ezekiel 22:17-19 17 Then this message came to me from the LORD: 18 "Son of man, the people of Israel are the worthless slag that remains after silver is smelted. They are the dross that is left over — a useless mixture of copper, tin, iron, and lead. 19 So give them this message from the Sovereign LORD: Because you are all worthless slag, I will bring you to my crucible in Jerusalem.
