GOD’S INVISIBLE GOVERNMENT – Breastplate Urim v’Tumim

Breastplate stones
Did you know that you are a creative sound that is made to resound with renown — the renown of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords? And your creative sound made to resound with renown is connected to the government of God?

What is the invisible government of YHVH anyway? There is more than one answer to this question. God’s Kingdom within you and me is like the wings of His heart wrapping around our eyes, so we can see how His heart moves. Let’s explore one dimension of God’s invisible government that is portrayed in the High Priest’s Breastplate, which was connected to his shoulders and placed on his heart. Please consider if God’s government is upon Yeshua (Jesus) who is the Prince of Peace that sits upon the Throne of David (Isaiah 9:6-7), then also consider that He is the Head while His believers are His Body. On the Body of the Messiah are shoulders, and in the background of ancient picture of the Royal Priesthood of Believers is the Breastplate of Judgment, sometimes called the Breastplate of Righteousness (Urim v’Tumim).

I once erroneous taught that the Urim v’Tumim was some sort of a “lot,” because my NASB International Inductive Study Bible had an Insight Note, which states: “The breastplate, which was fastened to the ephod, had a linen pouch which held the Urim and Thummim, which may have been used as sacred lots to reveal God’s will (1 Samuel 28:6).” 1 Samuel 28:6 says, “When Saul inquired of the LORD, the LORD did not answer him, either by dreams or by Urim or by prophets.” By the time the events of 1 Samuel 28 rolls around, David had already been anointed as King, and an evil spirit sent by the Lord was tormenting Saul as a result of his continual dabbling in divination, rebellion and insubordination to God.

Let’s get the correct insight into the Breastplate of Judgment (Choshen Mishpat) by looking into Hebrew History. First of all the Breastplate of Judgment on the High Priest’s garments was made of a 28-strand colored wool yarn/linen/gold material that had been twisted and rolled together, then folded in half to form a pouch. The 28-strand Breastplate was shaped like a rectangle measuring 1 cubit by ½ cubit (approximately 18 inches x 9 inches). In this pouch-like pocket Moses inserted a piece of parchment that is said to have had the Ineffable (unspeakable, sacred) Name Y-H-V-H written on it. It’s a mystery what Moses actually wrote or how he wrote it, but we do know that, the only one at that time to have met God face to face — Moses — was the only one who had the spiritual knowledge to write that Name or those Names on that holy piece of parchment, which was inserted into the high priest’s Breastplate.

This Name or Names inserted into the cleft of the Breastplate was called Urim, from the Hebrew word “light,” because it would cause individual letters of the tribal names on the Breastplate to light up; and this Name was also called Tumim, from the word “completeness,” because if read in the proper order, these luminous letters presented complete and true answers to the questions of national import that the Kohen Gadol (High Priest) would ask of God.

The Urim v’Tumim is not mentioned among the vestments that were made by artisans or contributed by the people (i.e., human hands). “You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men; being manifested that you are a letter of Christ… written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone, but on tablets of human hearts.” (2 Corinthians 3:2-3, NASB).

A Jewish Sage named Ramban gives an example of how this Urim v’Tumim/Breastplate process took place. “When the God’s people crossed the Jordan and had to undertake the conquest of the Land, the question arose which tribe should begin the war against the Canaanites. Phinehas the Kohen Gadol entered the Tabernacle and posed the question. The name Judah lit up, and also the letters hey, lamed, ayin, and yood. The Kohen had to know what this combination of letters represented, because they could be placed in several orders, thus forming different combinations of words. A Divine spirit gave him the wisdom to know that the message of the Urim v’Tumim was ‘The tribe of Judah shall go forth [to wage war]’” (See Judges 1:1-2).

Another Jewish Sage Vilna Gaon gives a classic interpretation of how the message of the Urim v’Tumim could be misunderstood. “When Hannah, the future mother of the prophet Samuel, entered the Tabernacle to pray for a child, the Kohen Gadol 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 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.”

Given the fact that the Hebrew Alef-Bet is the protoplasm of creation. Given the fact that it pre-dated the rest of creation and is the first born of all creation, the letters and their order is vitally important (Please refer to http://wp.me/p2k1dQ-kE for more information.) The Bible says that we are the letters of Christ written with the Spirit of the living God on tablets of human hearts (1 Corinthians 3:2-3). Christ in us the hope of glory is THE source of all true light and revelation, and He resides in the heart of every believer. He is the one that enlightens a person’s heart with a message from God.

I believe that myself and other believers are on a learning curve where the Lord is teaching us how to wait for Him to impart a complete spirit of revelation and how to remain marinating in His Presence until we receive a complete and true interpretation of what’s on His heart. The piece of parchment with God’s sacred name written on it symbolically represents every believer. Remember that we are the letters of Christ written with the Spirit of the Living God on tablets of human hearts.

When a person accepts the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ as their source of salvation, it is like when the Urim v’Tumim (the piece of parchment with the Ineffable Name written on it) was slid into the pouch of the High Priest’s Breastplate. This symbolizes that at the moment when a person is born again, the Spirit of the Living God writes the Word on our hearts and puts a new revelatory spirit within us.

“Put me like a seal over your heart…” (Song of Solomon 8:6a). The Urim v’ Tumim was located directly over the High Priest’s (Kohen Gadol) heart, which is a beautiful picture of our Great High Priest, Jesus, placing us directly on His heart in the pocket (cleft) of the Rock as we draw near to that place with Him (Exodus 33:22). It is here where the Light of God illuminates His message (Urim) – within us. It is also here in the midst of His heart that we must remain to receive Y-H-V-H’s spiritual language of revelation (Tumim). THIS IS THE POWER OF HIS WORD. His Divine Will being fully made know. I don’t know about you, but the Lord is still training me in “waiting revelation.”.Just when I think I’ve got it, I find out I don’t. I find that many revelatory messages that the Lord imparts to me seem to start out as “a shapeless chaotic mass” (Genesis 1:2TLB) – a random word, a vision, whatever. I find that I need to wait and remain in His Presence longer to let the Spirit of God brood over these dark vapors, then, as the next verse (Genesis 1:3) reveals, light and life will appear through His revelatory word to and through me.

When God instituted talking to the nation of Israel through the Urim v’ Tumim, He taped into the raw material of all created things — the spiritual forces caused by His Divine will — as communicated through lit, properly ordered and understood letters illuminated on colorful precious stones representing Israel’s twelve tribes. These lit gemstones are a miniature picture of believers being His precious “living stones” (1 Peter 2:5). When God said “Let Us make man in Our image…” (Genesis 1:26), Yeshua put the protoplasm of the universe, His unchangeable Word, within each one of us. He arranged me as a letter of Christ different than He arranged you, but nonetheless, everyone made “in His image” has God’s immutable nature within him or her.

As a prophetic people, our Great High Priest Yeshua shines through us with the True Light, which enlightens every man. We are “the light of the world!” (Matthew 5:14). Just as Yeshua spoke and it was so, may we be a creative sound that resounds with renown — the renown of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. I am still working on how to properly articulate these truths. I pray you have captured His message, and that the teaching about the Urim v- Tumim operating as some sort of random “sacred lot” is not correct. The Urim v’Tumim speaks of God’s desire to directly communicate with each one of us — a simple truth that the littlest child can understand. Jesus loves me, wants to hold me and speak to me. “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3). Indeed, this is an important aspect of the invisible government of God.

As we eagerly await His coming, Let there be light! “Arise, My people! Let your light shine for all the nations to see! For the glory of the Lord is streaming from you. All nations will come to your light…” (Isaiah 60:1,3a)

NOTHINGNESS

Eye of God

Holiness emanates from wisdom. Holiness also emanates from the Holy of Holies. Please note that the concept of “nothingness” in Hebrew Mysticism speaks of the Holy of Holies representing the incomprehensible essence of God – divine no-thingness. Therefore, wisdom comes from nothingness. Please also note that nothingness is connected to the Hebrew letter “ayin” – the eye of God.

CONCEALED MYSTERY OF THE EXPANSE

Milky Way over St. Mary's Lake by Wally Pacholka at AstroPics

Those who ascend and descend on the Son of Man are the enlightened ones who contemplate the mystery of wisdom. These are the ones shining with supernatural luster, as they wade in the river which issues from Eden (Genesis 2:10). Feel the mist that comes up from the river. It’s like miniscule sparkling diamonds. Play in the cool life-giving waters and pick up the leaves that fall within. In this heavenly river is a concealed mystery of the expanse. In the midst of a wheel of fire that rotates like a galaxy is the fiery living letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Come engage this mist. Come engage the essence of these crackling Hebrew letters, which are the protoplasm of the universe (multi-verse). Each vibrates with the notes of His song. This is the expanse that brilliantly illuminates your garden (SS 4:16). The Tree of Life is in its midst. In this tree exists one radiance of YHVH with all colors and frequencies of life inhering there.

PAINFULLY BEAUTIFUL AGENTS

DNA - Abstract-Red-DNA-Art-Paintings-on-Canvas

Don’t run from difficult circumstances. They’re the painfully beautiful agents that forms you into His very image. If you are always seeking to avoid crucifying circumstances, you’ll never spiritually mature. A crucial step to maturation is letting the Great Shepherd of your soul choose the way that you will take; and then, enduring any fiery trial until you come forth as gold.

GET INTO THE GAME MANIFESTED SONS

sun basketball
The Sons of Righteousness are arising! It’s critical that each precious member of Christ’s Body see and focus on their heavenly positions “in Christ.” It is equally important for these same Sons of Light who are prophets, priests and kings after the Order of Melchizedek to manifest the heavenly realities that they are seeing. A manifestation is something that manifests, which is a public demonstration of the power of heaven here on earth. Note: When a person manifests heaven on earth it is easily seen, understood and recognized by everyone and everything around them. For more on “manifest,” please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2013/11/25/manifest-your-shine/

Right now those becoming Mature Manifested Sons of our Heavenly Father are divided. Some think that to merely see heavenly realities, which were provided on the cross and made available to all that believe, means that they are manifesting all those heavenly realities. Their mind makes it so. There is much truth to this; however, these people are in process. How do I know? The evidence that demands a verdict is any person’s words and behavior (actions). Others believe that we need to see a heavenly reality and make it real in one’s own life by walking it out on earth.

The best analogy I can think of is shooting a basketball. Good kingdom shots during God’s game of life have to first be seen on the screen of one’s mind. Ideally, one should operate mainly from the spirit as it is housed in the Kingdom of God to make a royal shot that goes into His hoop, because everything else misses the mark.

Once a person’s spirit gets a heavenly download and their mind stays fixed on that spiritual download, they must make it a reality by staying “in the zone,” which means a person connects to their goal in their mind and spirit while their body moves to score. Pure heavenly visualization and having your mind stayed on Christ are fundamental and vital, but they alone will miss the mark of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. The goal or prize is only realized after a person’s body, soul and spirit gets in position to shoot the sphere of His Glory.

In basketball terms, in order to score a person must move their body during a physical game here on earth . They must get into position (body, soul and spirit). They must jump and lift their arm; and then, they must follow through as the ball leaves their hand. Without the ball going through His Kingdom hoop, the visualization exercise was just that. Notice that the word “overcome” is an action word or a verb, and winners are those who overcome (Revelation 2:7, 2:11,2:17, 2:26; 3:5; 3:12; 3:21). We as mature, manifested sons can not accomplish His glory goals without getting physically into His game.
