PRACTICAL KEYS TO UNLOCKING MELCHIZEDEK – PART 6 – ORDER SPEAKS

Sword Dove Frequency

The basic essence of the Order of Melchizedek can be boiled down to the words “order” and “Melchizedek.” Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised that I haven’t heard about the “ORDER” in Melchizedek before, but I am.

Come! Let’s see what the most important path for God’s family is. This most ancient ORDER in “the Order of Melchizedek” reveals the highest way of life for a person who moves in and out of His house. BTW – I just articulated the Ancient Hebrew Word Picture (Pictograph) for the word “order.”

The word “order” in the “Order of Melchizedek is the Hebrew word דִּבְרָה dibrah, which occurs 5 times in Scripture. Its first and fundamental definition is literally “a word.” When we couple this fact with the first declaration of the “Order of Melchizedek” was made in the Tabernacle of David, we put two practical keys in our pocket that helps unlock the mystery of His Kingdom involving Melchizedek:

“The LORD has sworn and will not relent, “You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek” (Psalm 110:4 NKJV).

So he swayed the hearts of all the men of Judah, JUST AS THE HEART OF ONE MAN, so that they sent this word to the king: “Return, you and all your servants!” (2 Samuel 19:14 NKJV)

Please allow me to explain. The fourth time that dibrah is used in the Word of God is in Ecclesiastes 7:17 – “In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after Him.” I am using this obscure verse, because it’s a great illustration of the Order of Melchizedek being A WORD.

I don’t know about you, but the LORD has set one person after another over me that I felt was against me. Be encouraged. When God sets one over against the other, it is for the purpose of the end of that man or woman, so that they find NOTHING. Say what? It sounds strange that a person will find NOTHING until we study “nothing” in Scripture. Primeval earth was hung on nothing (Job 26:7), and so is the dust of your earth, which is the primordial state of a person’s soul (Genesis 2:7). James 1:2-4 tells us that the trying of a person’s faith, especially by someone who is over and against them, is a perfect work of patience, which leaves a Melchizedek Candidate perfect and entire, wanting NOTHING.

If you want to discover some secret keys about Melchizedek that are hidden in plain sight, study “nothing” in Scripture and the concepts associated with it. For instance, NOTHING concerns priests of the Order of Melchizedek who sprang out of Judah – the Throne of David (Hebrews 7:13-14).

Please bear with me as we blow a few erroneous paradigms away, because if we do not “get” the first and fundamental concept that the Order of Melchizedek is a word and understand its basic application, we will miss the highest way of life for God’s family and it’s most important ancient path.

Since Yeshua was baptized with fire on the cross, we have been taught that “the law made nothing perfect” (Hebrews 7:19), which is true… but now we are making a quantum leap to the other side of His double-edge sword. Consider that our primordial souls were created in His image as perfect before the Fall; therefore, we can say in a sense that NOTHING IS PERFECT. BTW – I can prove this through Scripture, but I am going to let you search this out for yourself.

We are told in Hebrew 7:15-16 that after the visible likeness of Melchizedek arises another priest who is made after the power of an endless life – eternal life. Then before we are told “the law made nothing perfect,” we are told of the “disannulling of the commandment going before” (Hebrews 7:18). This “disannulling” phrase stopped me in my tracks, because it appeared to contradict some other things I had just studied. Please see FULFILLMENT IS A PLACE OF REST => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/05/21/fulfillment-is-a-place-of-rest/.

Suffice it to say that when we boil “disannulling” down to its root and consult the entirety of Scripture, Christians can understand that we have inherited lies, which have been carried over from the Nicene Council in the 4th Century. You may say: What’s this have to do with me? If you are called to be part of His Melchizedek and Bridal Companies, a lot!!! When Christianity began to be institutionalized in the 4th century, it was their modus operandi to indiscriminately mix the holy with the profane. In order for the Institutional Church to get away with this at the time, they told its members that the “old” way of the law was done away with, which was a slight twist of a righteous real. BTW – Nancy Coen teaches that “wicked” means a slight twisting of a righteous real.

“Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: Yea, we establish the law” (Romans 3:31).

The realm of the Spirit is entirely based on the Word of God, and we move in the spiritual realm through our faith in what God has spoken. (See https://www.facebook.com/SapphireThroneMinistries/posts/10201872085745449?notif_t=like.) When the manifested sons of God of a wing of His Melchizedek Army ascend and descend on the Son of Man – Yeshua – to see heavenly things, they are experiencing His word with the purpose of being made ONE with it here on earth, as it is in heaven.

The GRACE that much of Institutional Christianity said did away with the law is also based on God’s Word – crucified, buried, and risen. The One who walked full of Grace and Truth demonstrated for us a perfect life that was contrary to the demands of “religion.” Yeshua (Jesus) transcended the law by living a life in the fullness of love. He even told us: “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17 NKJV). Please note that “fulfill” is the opposite of abolishing or doing away with something.

There are two roots to the word “disannul” or “disannulling.” The first root communicates the sense of union while the second root speaks of a horizontal and passive posture of rest as well as various worship stances. This worship-filled rest picture is punctuated with the concepts of intimacy, conceiving and being made into the image of the Messiah.

“For the law made nothing perfect. The Order of Melchizedek will perfectly know, as I am perfectly known (1 Corinthians 13:12).

The power of an endless life is articulated in John 17:2 “This is eternal life, that they may know Thee.” That word “know” comes from the translation of a Jewish idiom for sexual intercourse between a man and a woman. The Hebrew word “yadah” points to this most intimate relationship. It’s the word used when “Adam experienced Eve” or “Adam knew Eve.” (See https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=643586769047154&set=a.436008649804968.101323.436004819805351&type=1&theater.)

This higher degree of intimacy IS the better covenant and better promises that Christ unlocked on the cross. Like the Great High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek, we sit with Him on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven (Hebrews 8:1). We are ministers of the sanctuary of the New Jerusalem that’s coming from heaven to earth. The new heavens and the new earth within the Order of Melchizedek are established by the Lord of Love Himself, not by man (Hebrews 8:2). His “new” covenant with physical and spiritual Is-real had actually already been prophesied in Jeremiah 31. It foretold the change in the law that came with the change in the priesthood. (Hebrews 7:12):

“But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days says the LORD: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God and they shall be My people” (Jeremiah 31:33; Hebrews 8:10).

So when you see the word “disannul” or “disannulling” in Scripture, substitute the concept of an intimate worshipful rest stance in your mind… instead of getting rid of one of the most significant foundations of the Order of Melchizedek. The ORDER in the “Order of Melchizedek” is speaking about manifesting His word. This is not much of a stretch since the PATTERN of the Order of Melchizedek is our Great High Priest the Word of God Himself (Revelation 19:13).

The way of life for royal priests is paved with ONE who is intimately positioned in the Spirit in the midst of the Tabernacle of David, as they abide at the frequency of His Word. THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK SPEAKS! WORD UP!

You are meant to be a Sent One who walks in the highest ways of life flowing in His perfect rhythms of Spirit and Truth. So let’s all take that quantum leap to restore the ORDER in the “Order of Melchizedek.”

“You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men; clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart” (2 Corinthians 3:2-3 NKJV)

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 Yah (God)?

What is the invisible government of YHWH 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 (Isa 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-W-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…” (SS 8:6a) The Urim v’ Tumim was located directly over the Kohen Gadol’s 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-W-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 1:2 TLB) – 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…” (Gen. 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!” (Matt 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” (Matt 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)
