The announcements of change have given way to them being manifested in the earth. The winds of change are here and now!!! A significant chunk to His changes in this Kingdom Day is the actual manifestation of a New Living Creature who is the One New Man in Christ that operates as various wings of God’s End-time Melchizedek Army flying by the Spirit with one another. This prototype of a New Living Creature is made up of mature sons of the Most High God.
His glory has departed a previous form (i.e., “church” as we have known it for approximately 1750 years). It has now moved out from a four-wall structure to His Church without walls. After all, His church is actually Christ’s Body, not some boards, nails and cement:
“And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all” (Ephesians 1:22-23 NKJV).
In this Kingdom Day, compromised leadership (priests) and their passing away as well as the departing of His Glory will be seen as a new ORDER arises – the Order of Melchizedek – the Order of Kings and Priests of Righteousness and Peace.
I’ve been studying the word “ORDER” in Scripture, and something quite interesting has surfaced. Having studied Melchizedek for years now, I recognized that every occurrence of the Hebrew word ‘arak (i.e., ORDER) tells of various realities of our Melchizedek Kingdom Function. This series – MELCHIZEDEK RISING – will illuminate these findings of our divine call as priests of the Most High God. We will be following the Spirit’s lead in the way that we take with the possibility of 20 or more different dimensions to His new MELCHIZEDEK ORDER RISING.
One of the themes associated with the word ‘arak (ORDER) is the Battle Against The Philistines. The Scripture we will focus on today is from the book of First Samuel chapter 4. In verse 2, we see the Philistines arranged for battle and them slaying a major segment of God’s Army due to the compromised state that Israel was in at the time. This is the verse that contains the word ‘arak. Let’s look at it in context. First, let’s back up a chapter to SEE the true state of God’s priests:
“Now the boy Samuel ministered to the Lord before Eli. And the word of the LORD was rare in those days; there was no widespread revelation. And it came to pass at that time, while Eli was lying down in his place, and when his eyes had begun to grow dim that he could not see, and before the lamp of God went out in the Tabernacle of the LORD where the Ark of God was, and while Samuel was lying down, that the LORD called Samuel. And he answered, “Here I am!” (1 Samuel 3:1-4 NKJV).
Without going into a lot of detail, notice that of all the things that Scripture could describe about the High Priest Eli, it mentions that he could not see because his eyes were dim and the Word of the Lord was rare in those days. And if we go back a couple more chapters, we see a High Priest who misinterprets a message from God. When Hannah, the future mother of the prophet Samuel, entered the Tabernacle in Shiloh to pray for a child, Eli saw her unusual demeanor and reckoned her to be a drunkard, rather than a supremely righteous woman (1 Samuel 1:13). It is believed that the High Priest Eli consulted the Urim v’Tumim regarding Hannah, and the Hebrew letters hey, dalet, kaf, and shin lit up. Instead of reading them correctly as “a worthy woman,” Eli mistakenly read the letters in the wrong order as “a drunken woman.” For more information, see https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2013/12/19/gods-invisible-government-breastplate-urim-vtumim/. We won’t even go into how his sons were running amok.
The compromised sorry state of Israel leadership led to their defeat in battle. Please apply this story to your nation today, if the shoe fits. Without examining their own lives to see if the defeat was caused by something they did, the elders of Israel presumptuously assumed that they’d show the Philistines who was boss. They summoned the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord of Hosts from Shiloh along with the high priests two sons (1 Samuel 4:3-4). The outcome was so horrific that only One Man of Benjamin (One New Man who was the son of My right hand) escaped to tell of the Ark of His Presence being captured by the enemy and the death of Eli’s two sons. When this lone MESSENGER told Eli of the captured Ark, the High Priest fell backwards from his seat of influence, broke his neck severing his connection to the Head, and died. Eli had judged Israel 40 years (1 Samuel 4:18), which speaks of a time of testing and trials, like when the Israelites wandered in the Wilderness for forty years.
BTW – In the TAKING ON COMMON UNION series discusses how the One New Man in Christ can be a divine or human messenger called the MESSENGER. Therefore, when you come across the term “MESSENGER” in Scripture, let a little red flag come up in your mind that signals a deeper truth that pertains to the Order of Melchizedek.
It’s very noteworthy that one who was appointed to carry on the High Priestly lineage gave birth immediately to a son named “Ichabod” – the glory is departed from Israel (1 Samuel 4:21-22). We see this picture of the glory departing from Israel in Ezekiel 8-11 as well, but Ezekiel shows us something super significant for this day and this hour. The glory of the LORD is depicted as part of His chariot throne in both Ezekiel 1 and Ezekiel 10. For a more in-depth view of this New Living Creature made up of four living creatures, which is His chariot throne, please read the TAKING ON COMMON UNION booklet. Basically, the New Living Creature in Ezekiel depicts a wing of God’s Melchizedek Army.
Ezekiel chapter 8 shows us four detestable practices performed in the House of the Lord that “drive Me far from My sanctuary” (Ezekiel 8:6). These four abhorrent things in God’s eyes currently exist in the structure of the “church” that the glory of the Lord is departing from now. Please take the time to read the following two revelatory articles about the four detestable practices in God’s eyes that drives Him far from His sanctuary:
• CRUX FOR GOD’S DWELLING PRESENCE => http://wp.me/p158HG-Dx
• TO DISMISS CHRIST => => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2013/12/17/to-dismiss-christ/
When you read Ezekiel chapters 8-11 notice that the glory of the Lord slowly moves away from His Temple that existed in Ezekiel’s day. Also, notice that His glory is transported by the Cherubim classification of the Order of Melchizedek according to Ezekiel 10:20, which is a corporate entity made up of at least four individuals.
This illustrates a very important change happening in this hour. The glory of the Lord is departing the old form – the old divine administration (dispensation) of His Church that has existed for an eon – to rest upon and dwell in the midst of His ministers a flame of fire (Daniel 7:9; Hebrews 1:7). Church, as you have known it, has dramatically shifted and those moving with His glory, as they live and move and have their being in Him, are the Melchizedek Army mentioned in Joel 2. Behold, THY KINGDOM HAS COME AND THY WILL IS BEING DONE by Crucified Ones united with the Holy One of Is-real (Israel). There is no more time to “play” church. Judgment and righteousness, which is the foundation and habitation of His throne, has come to the House of the Lord. Behold, He is doing a new thing. Do you not perceive it?!
Come on! Let’s join His ministers that are a flame of fire where the earth quakes before them and heavens tremble! Hear the voice of the Almighty before His Melchizedek Army for strong is the ONE who executes His word (Joel 2: 10-11). Behold, His glory is NOW moving to a new heaven and new earth, which will culminate with a Bridal Company who is called the New Jerusalem:
“Come, I will show you the Bride, the Lamb’s wife.” Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth… I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God” (Revelation 21:9,1-3 NKJV).
The Order of Melchizedek is the predecessor of the Bride. His New Living Creature will carry His glory to His Dwelling Place. Always remember that Scripture tells us mature sons of God who make up the Melchizedek Company of the One New Man in Christ build a house for God’s sanctuary (1 Chronicles 28:10) while His Bride makes up His House. SHE is the glorious exalted space where He can and will dwell (Revelation 21:3).
Mature or Adult Sons make up the overcoming bridal company (Revelation 21:7). However, all mature sons are not necessarily part of the Pure and Spotless Bride (Matthew 25:1-13; Ephesians 5:27). One does not guarantee the other. There are wise virgins and foolish virgins within the church. To be part of Christ’s Bride, one must literally go through their own close and personal Baptism of Fire where the All-Consuming Fire who sits on the sapphire throne righteously judges our earth (Ezekiel 1:26-27, 10:1; Hebrews 12:29). Only the highest caliber of saints allows their sin natures to be completely crucified. 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. Volunteering freely in the day of God’s power (Psalm 110:3) is a continual daily sanctioning of “not my will, but Yours be done” (Matthew 6:10). Please note that becoming part of the Bride of Christ is not a salvation issue. It’s about the most intimate, eternal relationship with the King of kings. It’s an eternal reward issue where no one will be exempt.
