HIS NEW LIVING CREATURE’S PURPOSE

Since a life without purpose is worthless, let’s examine the purpose of a wing of the Order of Melchizedek flying in the Spirit together. The “cherubim” classification of the New Living Creature of Melchizedek holds several keys for us. First, please recall that a “cherubim” can be either a divine or human messenger – sent one – according to Hebrew Scripture and the Greek Septuagint. “This is the Living Creature that I saw under the God of Israel by the river of Chebar; and I knew that they were the Cherubim” (Ezekiel 10:20 KJV).

IN THE MIDST OF GOD’S KINGDOM is a throne and in the midst of the throne are the living creatures that are sometimes called Cherubim. The living creatures have to do with creation. They mark the heavenly sweet spot for our returning to our primordial state on earth, as it was in the Garden before the fall.

Today, we’ll see what Scripture has say about the Cherubim overall; and then, we will follow up on each of these points in subsequent posts.

SCRIPTURE COMMUNICATES THAT CHERUBIM:

[1] Mark the spot for us returning to our pristine primeval state (Gen 3:24).

[2] Are guardians of the holiness of God “to keep the way of the Tree of Life” (Gen 3:24), and therefore, they must express His holiness.

[3] Mark the Dwelling Place of God, because He “dwells between the cherubim” (Num 7:89; 1 Sam 4:4; 2 Sam 6:2; 2 Kings 19:15; Psa 80:1; Psa 99:1; Isa 37:16).

[4] Are carriers of God’s throne, which is the seat of His divine glory as well as His royal power (1 Chron 28:18; Ezek 1:26-28; 10:1).

CHERUBIM ARE FOUND IN 3 MAJOR CONTEXTS IN THE BIBLE:

[1] Cherubim stand at the entrance of the Garden of Eden with a flaming sword which turns every way to keep the way to the Tree of Life (Gen 3:24).

[2] In God’s Dwelling Place (i.e. Tabernacle, Temple & New Jerusalem), Cherubim are the most frequently sculpted, engraved, & embroidered figures made according to a heavenly pattern given by the Lord Himself (Exo 26:1, 26:31-33; 36:8, 36:35; 1 Kings 6:29-35; 2 Chron 3:7).

[3] Cherubim are attendants of Almighty God & His throne. Cherubim make up the foundation of His fiery chariot throne that bears God’s Kingdom here on earth (Dan 7:9; Ezek 1:22-28; 10:1). God’s royal priests set out for the goal to become just like Yeshua — the High Priest of the eternal order of Melchizedek. We will soon see how His Melchizedek Company is the Messenger that will facilitate the kingdoms of this world becoming the kingdoms of our Lord, and His Christ (Rev 11:15).

SPECIAL NOTE OF WARNING: Yesterday, I mentioned a third-heaven group experience that ultimately led to proclaiming liberty for a group of pastors. It was glorious! I want to encourage everyone to go through the Revelation 4:1 open door in heaven, but I’d also like to mention a word of caution. All of us must go there completely surrendered to His will and His ways. We can ask the Lord if we can do such-and-such and He may lead us to do so, but please never initiate these divine encounter out of your own soul. The Revelation 4:1 Heavenly Door is meant to take us into the Third Heaven where His throne and other realms of the Most High God exist. If we soulishly try to go there, like those in the occult with our own imaginations and our own agendas, we will end up in a Second Heaven place where the prince of the power of the air reigns. The Lord has shown a person in our Corporate One North group a place in the Second Heavens that mimics and slightly twists a Third Heaven Experience. This is NOT where the Revelation 4:1 Door is supposed to lead to. Another thing that will cause Third Heaven experiences to only go to the Second Heaven is when we have idols in our hearts unbeknownst to ourselves. A simple grace-filled way to protect ourselves from “getting off” in this manner is to simply focus on Jesus (Yeshua) and only report what the individuals in your group see, hear, or perceive in the Spirit. We must NEVER try to ascend to the Third Heaven with our own agenda. Humility and simplicity are key.
