“‘I am the LORD, your Holy One, The Creator of Israel, your King.’ Thus says the LORD, who makes a way in the sea and a path through the mighty waters … ‘Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it?’ (Isa 43:15-16, 19 NKJV).
One of the new things manifesting in this Kingdom Day is a royal priesthood of believers that will literally walk in the way of righteousness. These kings and priests are of the Eternal Order of Melchizedek. They are dread champions who will reign on the earth (Rev 5:10). Scripture tells us that the WAY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS for His end-time Melchizedek Army:
 is in the midst of the paths of judgment where the Lord disciplines His sons (Prov 8:20).
 is life where there is no death – eternal life (Prov 12:28).
 is where a crown of glory is found (Prov 16:31).
 is paved through repentance (Matt 21:32).
 is a holy commandment where a person is better off not knowing the way of righteousness, than turning from it (2 Pet 2:21).
The WAY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS actually consists of progressive crucifixion steps that many times overlap. Notice how the New Living Creature, which is a wing of the Order of Melchizedek flying in the Spirit together, only boasts in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to them, and them to the world. (Gal 6:14).
For several years, I sought the Lord about the series of three in Scripture that reveals how we become the righteousness of God in Yeshua Ha Machiach (Jesus Christ) right here on earth, as it is in heaven (2 Cor 5:21). Even thought the religious establishment named and claimed, blabbed and grabbed, declaring: “I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus,” there has been a noticeable disconnect between what was being proclaimed and the reality in the people’s lives proclaiming it.
Today is the Kingdom Day when devout hearts will be found in Him. They won’t quit until they truly know Him and the power of His resurrection, which is only found in the fellowship of His suffering, being conformed to His death. Crucifixion is the process in which resurrection life is attained. I can not emphasize enough that the redemptive gift of sonship, which Yeshua purchased on the cross (Gal 4:4-6), is appropriated the same way that it was acquired. Dying daily on His cross is the path of righteousness where we progressively take possession of the Kingdom of God within ourselves. BTW – The wisdom of God insists upon our permission to crucify our sin nature, and He will only complete the work of co-crucifixion with Christ with our approval.
We need to grab a hold of the fact that the Melchizedek Company is “made like unto the Son of God” (Heb 7:3). Like Yeshua, the Order of Melchizedek, will operate in power according to the Spirit of holiness through their death, burial and resurrection (Rom 1:4). That sounds like quantum leaps above a mere proclamation.
Today is the day when YHVH is shaking the place where He has called His people to assemble, so they can receive His unshakable kingdom and be filled with a fullest measure of the Spirit of the Living God. Believers must now understand and press into the high calling of God where we have been given great grace, which allows our witness of the resurrection of Yeshua Ha Machiach to be accompanied with great power (Acts 4:33).
STM’s next post will go into the spiritual sacrifices required by God’s Holy Priesthood that will lead them to rule and restore the earth. Since Melchizedek is the predecessor for the Bride, this is also the process required of wise virgins, so they can be clothed in the bridal garments of righteousness.
