If it still hurts, then something is still being burned out of you that’s not of God.
The purification continues until we can dance joyfully with Him in the fire.
HE SHALL CAUSE AN EXPLOSION OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS WITHIN THESE FIRES OF PURIFICATION UNTIL WE REFLECT HIS IMAGE AND LIKENESS AND UNTIL WE ARE FULLY CONQUERED AND SWALLOWED UP BY HIS LOVE.
He is imparting to us His peace, the fruits of His righteousness and the joy of His heart which is the kingdom of God.
It’s called the furnace of affliction because we experience and suffer the conflict between flesh and Spirit until He purged us of our sinful nature and rebellious ways.
