I asked Abba: “When does Your commissioning for the Melchizedek Army begin?” He told me: “When people enter the Kingdom of God”: “Jesus answered, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is BORN OF WATER AND THE SPIRIT, he cannot ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD (John 3:5 NKJV). So it’s when people are born of water and the Spirit that we first are commissioned into His royal priesthood.
Know that the Order of Melchizedek is the highest spiritual order on earth that manifests heaven – making the kingdoms of this earth, the kingdoms of our God (Rev 11:15). Scripturally, when we are born-again, we merely SEE the Kingdom of God (See John 3:3) and are immature sons at this point. According to John 3:5 when we are born of water and the Spirit, we ENTER the kingdom of God. It is during this step that Manifested Sons or the Maturing Sons are produced. This is where the New Living Creature of the One New Man in the Messiah who is a wing of His Melchizedek Army takes shape. To INHERIT the Kingdom of God, Galatians 5:19-21 and 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 tells us the works of flesh that do not allow us to inherit the Kingdom of God. This is where Mature or Maturing Sons become His Pure & Spotless Bride.
After Abba told me that people begin their commissioning in His Melchizedek Army, He told me that it is at the military level of “general” that Yeshua (as the High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek) personally commissions them. It is His non-revocable stamp of approval making His Generals of Melchizedek known to all of heaven and earth. A facebook friend confirmed this and I think her thoughts on the matter are divine: The significant difference between the two (already being commissioned and needing to be commissioned by Yeshua Himself) is when you have become a general (which is operating in the fullness and authority of that which the Almighty would have us operate after extreme death to self has been accomplished), He will promote people individually by putting His non-revocable stamp of approval on them. This non-revocable General of Melchizedek stamp makes known in all of heaven and earth those who carry a personal commissioning from Him and the extreme authority in Him that goes with it. Their extreme authority is due to them understanding their identity in Christ; therefore, they have become a-force-to-be-recon-with the personal approval by God Himself. Many are called few chosen.
One thing that I am very clear on is that we must conquer and dethrone our own Babylonian kings, which is a demarcation line for when we can expect Yeshua to come to us and personally commission us (Gen 14:17-20). Please refer to OVERCOMING BABYLONIAN KINGS – https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=634222986650199&set=a.436008649804968.101323.4 for more information.
I am also very clear that it has to do with the FULLNESS OF CHRIST: “till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the FULLNESS OF CHRIST” (Eph 4:13 NKJV). This is due to the “tenth of all” reference in Genesis 14:20. If you have not read both of these short articles, please do because they begin to explain the FULLNESS OF CHRIST CONNECTION TO THE TENTH OF ALL:

FULLNESS IS A 10 % DEPOSIT UNTIL… => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2013/09/29/fullness-is-a-10-percent-deposit-until/
As I was driving down to conference where I was teaching on “righteousness,” Yeshua prompted me to ask: “How much of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ do I have? I heard a percentage that was much lower than I expected. First though, we must be more immature that we know. Second, thought was to ask more questions.
Q: How much of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ do Your people start with? A: 10% deposit.
Q: How much of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ do most Christians have? A: 10%. Follow-up Q: “They never grow in the fullness of Christ?” A: “That is correct.”
I was going to a conference for those advancing in the Kingdom of God, so I asked… Q: What is the average of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ for individuals at this conference? A: 25-45%.
To be fair, I believe that a portion of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ is measured corporately, but talk about an eye-opening question to ask oneself. I think it is very important to not compare, but use it as a tool to help yourself to press in even more into the goal of the high calling off God in Christ Jesus.
