PRACTICAL KEYS TO UNLOCKING MELCHIZEDEK – PART 7 – TREASURER OF THE MOST INTIMATE

Door Hands
YHVH foreknew and foreordained that His Order of Melchizedek would come to the Kingdom for such a time as this (Esther 4:14).

“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven (Eccl 3:1). What He has made beautiful in this Kingdom Day is His wings of His Melchizedek Army who ascend and descend on Yeshua – the Son of Man – by the Spirit of the Living God to the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. In No Man’s Land (a place that the Melchizedek Company resides), we find out God’s works from the beginning until the end, because He set eternity in our hearts (Eccl 3:11).

Time is a mystery. The Melchizedek section of the Dead Sea Scroll (11Q13 – cave 11 Qumran physical scroll 13) speaks that Melchizedek will instruct the world about all the periods of history for eternity and the statutes of the truth.

Know that even though there are seven Feasts of the Lord spelled out in Leviticus 23, which God Himself says: “These are My feasts” (Leviticus 23:12), there are two additional feasts that are in the Bible. One of the Biblical Feasts – Purim – is commemorated in the Book of Esther.

Know that with each of the Lord’s Feast a portal opens in the heavenlies, and there is a greater grace articulated in His various Biblical Feasts that His people can tap into at these times. These graces are always available, but somehow they are brought nearer as we cycle through the times He has set up. The years which the LORD has given to His people are set according to His Biblical Feasts. The months which the LORD has given to His people are set by His new moons and weeks are set by His seventh day Sabbaths. These are the times and the seasons set up by the Lord Himself as articulated in His Word.

If the ORDER in the Order of Melchizedek is going to abide in an intimate rest worship stance, they must resonate at the frequency of His word. BTW – The Dead Sea Scrolls also speaks of the songs sung over the Sabbath Sacrifices, which are still resonating throughout eternity seeking for a place where they can manifest and rest.

“The word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it, For we which have believed do enter the rest … For He spoke in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all His works. There remains therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into His rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from His” (Hebrews 4:2,4, 9-10).

These “Songs of the Sabbath Sacrifice” were sung to Melchizedek – the chief angelic priest – in one fragment. Recall that the New Living Creature of the One New Man in the Messiah (Christ) is called the Cherubim in Ezekiel 10, and that word “Cherubim” can either be a divine or human messenger according to the Hebrew Scripture and the Greek Septuagint. For more information, please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2013/11/21/taking-on-common-union-part-4/, 

Basically, the Eternal Order of Melchizedek operates from a position of REST as the Seventh Day Transfigured Son — the One New Man in the Messiah. In the twelfth song of the Cherubim, which we are told are almost indistinguishable from the wheels of God’s chariot throne (Ezekiel 1), the priests used to worship YHVH silently. We are told that one cannot hear this praise, but it is evident in brass-like flashes of light emerging from His throne. These Ancient Sabbath Songs included priestly and princely angelic (cherubim) praise of the divine king as well as praise issuing from the vestibules. A vestibule is a passage, hall or room between the outer door and the interior building, which gives access to something new.

At the dawning of this New Kingdom Age, the Order of Melchizedek operates as the king’s chamberlain or treasurer of the most intimate. Please recall from the last PRACTICAL KEYS TO UNLOCKING MELCHIZEDEK article (https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/06/16/practical-keys-to-unlocking-melchizedek-part-6-order-speaks/) that there are some secret keys about Melchizedek that are hidden in plain sight when we study “nothing” and the concepts associated with it in Scripture.

“Now when the turn of Esther, the daughter of Abihail, the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her for his daughter, was come to go in unto the king, she required NOTHING but what Hegai the king’s chamberlain, the keeper of the woman, appointed. And Esther obtained favor in the sight of all them that looked upon her” (Esther 2:15 KJV).

The Lord’s Melchizedek Company is the predecessor for the unparalleled beauty of His Pure and Spotless Bridal Company. They both have pure hearts surrounded by Yeshua HaMachiach (Jesus Christ)’s Blood, which passes through the righteous judgments that emanate from His Sapphire Throne. These royal priests of Melchizedek prepare the way for the Bride to join the King of Kings.

One of the Bridal Preparation functions that Melchizedek operates in is displayed in his role as the king’s chamberlain. My Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary tells me that a chamberlain is an attendant on a sovereign in his bedchamber. He is a chief officer in the household of a king who is the treasurer of his most intimate possessions. As guardians entrusted with the receipt, care, and disbursement of the king’s treasures, the Eternal Royal Priests of Melchizedek are governmental officers who are in charge of receiving, keeping and disbursing the king’s resources.

This incredible kingdom key to the wealth of heaven being dispersed to the sons of God on earth is given only to those who’s character have been refined in His Baptism of Fire to the place where His Sons of Light can stand in the council of God and take the responsibility for being seated in His government. When we restore the ORDER in the “Order of Melchizedek,” we hit the mark of the highest way of life for God’s family, which is flowing in the perfect rhythms of Spirit and Truth. The most ancient path of ORDER point us to being a Living Word, as HE is the Word made manifest. In fact, the meaning behind the king’s chamberlain’s name – Hegai – speaks of four things: meditation, word, groaning (birthing) and separation. These are all key because they are the instructions of the one in charge of the house of the women – the house of the Bride of Christ (Esther 2:3). We are to do NOTHING, except what the king’s chamberlain appoints.

What I also think is so wonderful is that Esther’s father’s name – Abihail – speaks of loving God with all your strength, which is the Bridal Portion of loving God with all one’s resources. The Hebrew word for “strength” articulates to passionately love the Lord vehemently; wholly, speedily, especially when repeated; diligently, especially, exceedingly, greatly, louder and louder, mightily, utterly; to rake together; a poker for turning and gathering embers; a firebrand (i.e. torch). Please refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-sS.

Purim is currently a twisted counterfeit – a type of Mardi Gras – of a righteous real. What I mean when I say that Purim is a twisted counterfeit of a righteous real is that we need to untwist it. We need to keep that which is holy and get rid of that which is profane: drunkenness, debauchery and revelry. Many of the current practices of Purim are related to a Mardi Gras spirit, which needs to be redeemed and refocused by His Sons of the Kingdom on the preparation of the Bride and deliverance aspects of this feast that’s in His Word.

The Eternal Order of Melchizedek is called for such a time as this to restore His Kingdom Order to this Biblical Feast. Both Chanukah and Purim are not feasts forever, because they have a culmination. That culmination is the church becoming His Bride through the acceptance of being cleansed from sin by Yeshua’s Blood and cleansed from the world by the application and manifestation His Eternal Word.

We are the curators of the king’s most intimate treasure AND we are His most valued possession. The commitment to being married to the King and Kings and the Lord of Lords is not to be taken lightly is almost an understatement. His queen will most excellently represent the King. You have been called to His Exalted Kingdom for such a time as this, and His scepter is currently being extend to those who say “I do” with all their heart, soul and strength.

FIVE-FOLD FULLNESS OF THE MESSIAH BODILY

body-shatter
Did you know that there were furnishings of the First Temple hidden away in the time of King Josiah? These furnishings were the Ark of the Covenant that contained the golden jar of manna, Aaron’s budding rod, the Tablets of the Ten Commandments and the holy oil that anointed kings and priests. The Jewish Commentary – Numbers Rabbah XV.10 – records that in the time of the Messiah that the true temple furnishings would be restored: the fire of the Brazen Altar, the Ark of His Presence, the seven-branched golden lamp, the Spirit, and the Cherubim.

One incredible manifestation of this happened when Yeshua (Jesus) walked among us on earth. Now today, another quantum spiritual leap is happening whose aim is for the Mature Body of Christ to attach to its Mature Head – Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ). Its goal is the fullness of the One New Man in Christ (the Messiah) encapsulated in the heavenly and mysterious Metatron Messiah Yeshua figure. The baptism of fire is facilitated at the Brazen Altar. The governors and tutors of the Seven Spirits of God are portrayed in the seven-branched Golden Menorah. The Seven Spirits of God are seven flows of the Spirit of the Living God. The Ark of His Presence resides in the Holy of Holies, which houses God’s Chariot Throne (i.e., the Cherubim). These are all keys in this Kingdom Day for the appearance of the fullness of the Messiah bodily.

In this Kingdom Day, God is anointing the kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek and enabling them to manifest the perfection of the Father’s love. These are the ones whose goal is to become just like Jesus through denying themselves, taking up their cross, and following Him (Matthew 16:24-26). These are the ones flowing by the Spirit of the Living God that are allowing the Seven Spirits of God to governor and tutor them into maturity (Galatians 4:2). These are the ones who ascend and descend, like Yeshua did, to operate in the eternal realm “in Christ” doing the perfect will of the Father (Ephesians 4:9-10; John 5:19). This is the Cherubim Classification of the Order of Melchizedek (Ezekiel 1; Ezekiel 10). These are mature ones of His multi-membered body, which will literally attach to Christ (Messiah) as the mature head: “His head and His hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire” (Revelation 1:14 KJV).

Selah…

HITTING THE BULL’S EYE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS – PART 10 – CONTINUAL LIVING SACRIFICE

Red - LightDance by Roussoli

The third, and most arduous, leg of the Bride’s Baptism of Fire creates a blazing Fire Bride whose flame never goes out. This is the place where purification is consummated, which is a quantum leap beyond salvation and sanctification. It’s a final transformative stage, which facilitates our becoming one with the All-Consuming Fire. It causes the New Jerusalem to resound with renown with the perfect frequency of our Bridegroom.

Please recall that the kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek are the predecessor of the Bride (i.e. they prepare the Bride and are the pool from which the Bride comes). When royal priests burn to become just like Him, they will go all-out to become a Continual Living Sacrifice, which will be their ultimate spiritual sacrifice.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you PRESENT YOUR BODIES A LIVING SACRIFICE, HOLY, ACCEPTABLE TO GOD, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Rom 12:1-2 NKJV).

“You also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up SPIRITUAL SACRIFICES ACCEPTABLE TO GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST” (1 Peter 2:5 NKJV).

You may have seen fire birds lately in the Spirit, because the fiery birds of a feather that are flocking together in this Kingdom Day are various wings of the Order of Melchizedek flying by the Spirit with one another. These passionate ones only glory in the cross:

“But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. For in Christ Jesus … availeth … a new creature” (Gal 6:14-15 KJV).

Christ’s Baptism of Fire was His crucifixion (Matt 3:11). His Bride will not shun the need to join Him in this regard for the sake of His Body. BECOMING A MANIFESTED SON WHO IS A CONTINUAL LIVING SACRIFICE IS A DEEP RED MYSTERY, WHICH CULMINATE’S IN THE BRIDE’S COMPLETE BAPTISM OF FIRE THAT LITERALLY HITS THE BLOODSHOT BULL’S EYE OF THE FATHER.

Please recall that the full stature of His crimson flow makes it necessary for His Mature Body to grow up into Him in all things as well as each member of His Mature Body needing to fill up the afflictions of Christ in their flesh for His Body’s sake (Eph 4:15; Col 1:24-25). The Corporate One New Man in Christ will accurately display to all the world the fullness of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ the same way that all fullness dwelt in Yeshua (Jesus) – through the blood of the cross (Col 1:19-20). This is a key component to Yeshua’s Mature Head attaching to His Mature Body (Dan 7:9; Rev 1:14).

As the previous HITTING THE BULL’S EYE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS articles illustrate, the way of righteousness for both His Melchizedek Company and Bridal Company consists of progressive crucifixion steps, which are spiritual sacrifices He still requires of His Holy Priesthood. For those who desire to completely crucify their own sin nature, Jeremiah 33:18 holds the key to the Bride’s Baptism of Fire in its fullness:

[1] offer burnt offerings,
[2] burn grain offerings, and
[3] prepare sacrifices continually.

A Bridal Candidate’s quest for purification includes all of these offerings by fire. Understand that we are speaking about spiritual principles, not literal animal sacrifices in this Kingdom Day. Like all series of three in Scripture, these crucifixion steps (where we join Yeshua on the cross) are listed from easiest to hardest. They also illuminate our way that leads to His Mature Body being prepared to do the perfect fiery will of the Father. Today is all about the third and final crucifixion step.

“Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: ‘Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but A BODY PREPARED FOR ME. … Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come – In the volume of the book it is written of Me – TO DO YOUR WILL, O GOD.” (Heb 10:5,7 NKJV).

Verse 9 of Hebrews 10 tells us that He took away the first (literal sacrifices and offerings) to establish the second, which is Christ’s Body prepared to do His will. The principles behind the offerings listed in Jeremiah 33:18 literally show His kings and priests how the Messiah’s Body is prepared, so it perfectly fits on the Head of the King of Kings.

The New Living Creature of Crucified Ones who is a Corporate One New Man in the Messiah will be the same essence as the All-Consuming Fire, which means our hearts, minds and works will have been thoroughly tested by fire (1 Cor 3:11-15; Heb 12:27-29).

Reigning Ones will manifest being an everlasting offering by fire, as they come out the other side of the All-Consuming Fire. They will be emblazon with the name: “The Lord is our righteousness” (Jer 33:16), and will continue to remain seated in the Sapphire Throne with Him (Eph 2:6; Rev 3:21).

There is a purpose for this Continual Living Sacrifice place where His Holy Royal Priesthood prepares the truest sacrifice of themselves. This purpose is where Crucified Ones earn their title by bringing their entire carnal nature to the Lord’s Altar, so it can be totally burnt up and the fullness of Christ can dwell in them.

To gain greater insight into our highest reality of being a Continual Living Sacrifice, we need to understand how the High Priest used to prepare sacrifices for God’s Altar:

[1] THROAT SLIT & BLOOD DRAINED – We must exchange our life in the flesh for His life in the Spirit. We are losing ourselves, so that we might be found in Him.

[2] HEAD CHOPPED OFF – The Head of the Body of Christ is in charge. We are to walk in the same manner as Yeshua who demonstrated: “Not My will, but Yours be done” (Luke 22:42).

[3] SKIN REMOVED – We need to get rid of all self-protection, self-righteousness, and any self-defense mechanisms that are barriers to wholly connecting with God. His Sons of Light epitomize vulnerability and transparency.

[4] SPLIT BODY COMPLETELY OPEN & WASH INWARD PARTS – Our heart and soul must be refined and purified, then washed with the water of the word (Eph 5:26) and the Spirit of regeneration (Titus 3:5). A Continual Living Sacrifice demonstrates that all things belong to God. Please refer to “RESTORATION TIME – 12 STRANDS OF DNA” – https://www.facebook.com/SapphireThroneMinistries/photos/pb.436004819805351.-2207520000.1408624698./717675584971605/?type=3&theater. The Cherubim Classification of the Order of Melchizedek must fulfill the 10 Copper Chariot Laver picture in Solomon’s Temple in this regard.

[5] LEGS CHOPPED OFF – Continual Living Sacrifices cannot walk their own way. It’s impossible. They need the supernatural legs of the Messiah, which are activated through their daily surrender to the Spirit’s leading (John 5:19).

BTW – I culled these preparing sacrifices steps from Mike Parson’s “Present A Living Sacrifice (1)” article on www.freedomarc.wordpress.com.

Just know that Continual Living Sacrifices who prepare themselves for use in God’s Kingdom constantly prove what the perfect will of God is (Rom 12:2). My Webster’s College Dictionary says that the word “prove” is an action verb, which is defined as:

• to learn or find out by experience
• to test the truth, validity, or genuineness of
• to test the worth or quality of, specifically: to compare against a standard
• to check the correctness of
• to establish the existence, truth or validity of (as by evidence)
• to demonstrate as having a particular quality of worth
• to show (oneself) to be worthy or capable
• to turn out, especially after trial or test

Proving the perfect will of God involves working it out with fear and trembling as well as renouncing and giving up our own ways for His way for His Kingdom come here on earth as it is in heaven. When we are crucified daily in union with Christ according to the plumb line of His Word of Righteousness, our inward and outward appearance will be transformed into His same image from glory to glory until we plainly prove the righteous character of Christ.

His pure and spotless Bride will exemplify co-crucifixion with her Beloved. Every time we make His specified spiritual sacrifice, it will cause those after the Order of Melchizedek to decrease in their own strength and increase in the way of eternal life. His complete Bridal Baptism of Fire of our Kingdom of Self will cause His Continual Living Sacrifices to operate wholly and fully in the Kingdom of God.

May the Kingdom of Self disappear and the Kingdom of God appear in you and me.

HITTING THE BULL’S EYE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS – PART 9 – BROKENNESS OF ONE’S SOUL

Red Ancient Carrier Woman

Purification is a work of oneness. Just like Yeshua (Jesus), His Reigning Ones will be IN the Father, and the Father will be IN them. They will literally become holy, as He is holy.

We are continuing to explore the second crucifixion step in the Bride’s Baptism of Fire in this installment of HITTING THE BULL’S EYE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. Please recall that Melchizedek is the predecessor of the Bride, because we are going to hover here today (See Part 8 – FAITHFULNESS TEST).

We begin to see the Kingdom of God and become inducted into His Holy Royal Priesthood by grace through faith when they accept Yeshua as our Lord and Savior. This is also when His Kingdom Seed is planted within us, which is an incorruptible seed that’s planted deep within our souls. Just like a seed in any garden, the wisdom of God knows that in order for corruptible man to put on incorruption, the Kingdom Seed within the soul of a man is dropped in dirt, covered in darkness, and must struggle to reach the light of the shekinah glory in which it was originally created before the Fall.

After the initial gift of salvation, believers learn things of the Spirit by first making a decision, then growing by exercising that spiritual reality. I have heard people say: “I am born again, so Jesus fills my soul.” This is simply not true. I could go into a Biblical explanation of this, which I do in the FULLNESS articles below; but one merely needs to look at the behavior of most Christians to see the truth. The Spirit of the Living God fills your spirit and awakens it to God when one receives the gospel of salvation, but your soul is still under the dominion of sin nature (i.e. flesh). Since Yeshua will not live where sin exists, it is extremely important for us to partner with Him to cleanse our souls. Remember that the Bridal Baptism of Fire operates beyond both levels of salvation and sanctification in the area of purification. Co-crucifixion with Christ is the way of the second level of the Baptism of Fire, and it comes by obeying His Word of Truth to where the world is crucified to us and us unto the world.

“Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, because ‘All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass … But the word of the Lord endures forever.’ “ (1 Peter 1:22-25 NKJV).

“But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world” (Gal 6:14 NKJV).

The cross spoken of in Galatians 6:14 is the cross of the flesh where the world is crucified and where our souls are transformed by our death to our sin nature for the purpose of coming forth into resurrection life. The cross of the flesh transforms one’s soul. Matthew 16:24-26 speaks about someone who tries to gain the whole world, but loses his soul because he refuses to deny himself, take up his cross and follow Yeshua.

When Yeshua completely fills a person’s soul, they act like Him, talk like Him, and walk like Him, as He exhibited in the Word of God.

Let’s realize that seeing the Kingdom of God is not the same as procuring (inheriting) it (John 3:3; Gal 5:19-21). First and foremost, the Word of God is not simply some words on a piece of paper, but a person whose name is called “The Word of God” and on His thigh is written ”King of Kings and the Lord of Lord ” (Rev 19:13-16). Royal priests know this, and they give honor where honor is due. Scripture also tell us that His Kingdom Seed is not only the “Word of the Kingdom,” but the “Word of God” (Matt 13:19; Luke 8:11). The Bible shows us that we can hear, receive, and believe the Word of God; and even though the Word of God is called the Sword of the Spirit, we also can be quite passive about it. There is nothing passive about working out our own salvation with fear and trembling (i.e. sanctification) as well as our fiery purification process, which enables us to become set apart kingdom vessels.

Brokenness is the rule for this secondary level of purification… being humble and teachable are key. When we look at the three sections of God’s Wilderness Tabernacle made after a heavenly pattern, we see that there is a curtain that marks the boundaries of God’s Sanctuary (i.e. Dwelling Place), which is made up of both the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies. Please note that the Holy of Holies lies within the boundaries of the Holy Place. Since the Holy Place can be equated to a person’s soul and the Holy of Holies speaks of their spirit, we know that our spirit is housed within our soul.

When we take a revelatory peek into the Ancient Hebrew Word Picture for the word “curtain,” it communicates that the curtain of God’s Dwelling Place symbolically represents the highest and most important work to be done is the purification work in a person’s soul. Wow! That’s quite a statement!

Right now the Body of Christ is being called to abide in the place of Galatians 2:20 where our sinful nature is crucified in union with the Messiah, so we can literally live on this earth by the faith of the Son of God. Please note that the Melchizedek Company is made like unto the Son of God (Heb 7:3). We know that the Son of God refused to come off the cross (Matt 27:40), and so will Mel. We are currently being sifted again and again and again to get impurities out.

Yer-ee-aw is the Hebrew word for “curtain,” and speaks of a tremulous hanging or a hanging of the fear of the Lord. The Spirit of the Fear of the Lord enabled Yeshua to walk as ONE with His Heavenly Father. Due to the fear of the Lord residing within His soul, Yeshua literally loved what His Father loved, and hated what His Father hated. And so it will be with His kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek. When something is tremulous, it is characterized by or affected with trembling. Humility is a result of this shaking of everything that can be shaken. “Where is the place of My rest? … To this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembles at My word” (Isaiah 66:1-2).

As we dig a little bit deeper, we see that the primitive root to yer-ee-aw is the Hebrew word yaw-rah’, which means to be broken up (with any violent action). “ When brokenness occurs resistance, independence, and pride are replaced with submission, tenderness, obedience and love. To be broken is to come to the place where He is esteemed above self. Note: Each of us must willingly submit to (be a willful participant with) the Father in this process. Brokenness cracks open the hard shell of our sinful self nature to reveal the sons of the shekinah! Brokenness is an ancient pathway and main tool to prepare our souls for the filling up of the complete fullness of the Seven Spirits of God, which is how Jesus walked in the nature of Christ on earth.

Thank God that we have boldness to enter into the Holy of Holies in the heavenlies by the Blood of the Lamb, which is His incredibly wonderful Throne of Grace and a beloved relationship with Him after we accept His gift of salvation. There still remains a need to rend the veil that is currently between a believer’s soul and spirit due to The Fall, for those who desire to rule and reign with Him and do His greater works. We are told that when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away (2 Cor 3:16). Unequivocally, we are brought near by the cross through the blood of Christ. The crucifixion steps involved in the Bride’s Baptism of Fire is merely a deeper spiritual reality to this truth where each one of us needs to grow into being a holy temple for the Lord before we can corporately connect wholly in love.

The process, which tears the curtain (veil) that is currently between our soul and spirit, is a top-down, heaven-to-earth crucifixion process, which results with a person being clothed with the fear of the Lord. The division between our soul and spirit is now being broken down, so the Nature of Christ can possess our souls. Thus, on both an individual and corporate level, establishing peace by making the two (soul and spirit) One New Man in Christ (Eph 2:15).

People are now experiencing the Lord’s discipline as His mature sons in which the depths of our souls are being broken up with a violent agitation, so He can create a new heaven and a new earth within us, as He did in the beginning. “The Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force” (Matt 11:12).

Do you desire to be a golden kingdom vessel filled with the Nature of Christ (i.e. Seven Spirits of God)? If so, then you ARE called to be one of His Reigning Ones, and you are probably experiencing or have experienced a deep work of crucifixion of your flesh (sin nature). Be encouraged. If you are struggling, it is because you truly desire to be formed into His very image. There is a HUGE test in our willingness to pay the price to die to ourselves, so that Christ may live in us in His fullness.

Please remember that LOVE meets us in our broken places. He is a good gardener who not only plants the good seed of His Kingdom, but He works to till the soil of our hearts, so we may receive a 100-fold return in all we do, as unto the King. At this time, resurrection life is still being released to you and I in sprout form for whosoever will.

HITTING THE BULL’S EYE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS – PART 8 – FAITHFULNESS TEST

Red Leap

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says.”  Just as the inner ear spirals inward, so is the Bridal Journey of Purification. Just as the spoken word seeks the pure water within, so do Bridal Candidates seek the pure washing of the water of His Word in order to get to the very heart of God. Greater than glorious intimacy is a sacred oneness with the King and His Kingdom:

“That in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in ONE all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him” (Ephesians 1:10 NKJV).

In our last installment of HITTING THE BULL’S EYE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (see below), we began to explore the second crucifixion step in the Bride’s Baptism of Fire. As we follow Yeshua’s footsteps in our own baptism of fire, we are moving beyond salvation and sanctification to the place of purification where our perfection is to resound with renown at the perfect pitch of His Bride – “The Lord is our righteousness” (Jeremiah 33:16).

Jeremiah 33:17-18 tells us that YHVH will never lack a royal priest that will burn grain offerings before Him. Let’s first focus on the royal priest who presents the grain offering, then on the grain/meal offering itself. On this side of the cross, the Royal Order of Melchizedek acts as a treasurer of the King’s most valuable resources. The top priority on the King’s list is His Ravishing Bride. Esther 2:15 reveals that His Bride is required to do NOTHING but what the King’s Chamberlain appoints. A king’s chamberlain is an attendant on a sovereign in his bedchamber as well as a chief officer in the household of a king who is a guardian of a collection of treasures. Just so you know, the King’s Chamberlain is synonymous with one who maturely operates according to the heavenly Order of Melchizedek here on earth.

Melchizedek is the predecessor of the Bride. We need to understand that we have to first functionally operate in our God-given governmental seat as a kingdom priest before we become a suitable partner – His Bride.

The Bridal Candidate’s Grain Offering Test is an ancient pathway that’s reveals what the kingdom of priests will need to go through at the second stage of their Bridal Baptism of Fire. Numbers 5:11-31 describes the primordial faithfulness test for the Lamb’s wife:

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing” (James 1:2-4 NKJV).

Let’s face it. Until we are truly without spot of wrinkle, we are wayward in many ways. This passage in Numbers 5 shows us how Yah (God) deals with infidelity. First and foremost, a husband had to be without sin to bring “the meal-offering of jealousies” on behalf of his wife (Numbers 5:15). Note that Yeshua brought the meal-offering for His wayward wife at the cross through the offering up of His Body (1 Corinthians 11:23-24; Ephesians 5:23-25). His Body will walk in the same manner as He did (1 John 2:6) filling up what is lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of His Body, which is the church (Colossians 1:24).

This primordial faithfulness test for a bride was, and still, is focused on inducing her confession and repentance:

  • “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 KJV).
  • “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent” (Rev 3:19 NKJV).

Note: That the wife who endured this extreme ordeal to the end would be vindicated. In the Old Testament, the accused wife had to be innocent of infidelity to survive the ordeal, but on this side of the cross, this process shows us how the One who loves us and who desires for us to be ONE with Him will progressively break a beloved one’s soul in order to crucify our sin nature (flesh) until nothing remains, except that which is purely spiritual.

Picture, if you will, yourself as Yeshua’s Bride. You are standing before the LORD with your hair loose, which speaks of revealing the particular frequency of your manifestation of His glory. If a person has mixture (sin) in their life, their frequency will resonate at a lower level than the perfectly pure frequency of their Bridegroom. Recall that “to burn grain offerings” speaks of one’s life being measured according to the plumb line of God’s Word:

“Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever” (1 Peter 1:22-23 NKJV).

Once the Wayward Wife’s hair was let down, the High Priest would then place the grain offering in her outstretched palms, as he held the water of bitterness in an earthenware vessel. The priest would then have her move from place to place in the doorway of the courtyard where devout women served YHVH. The grain offering quickly became a burden that only the most resolute would bear. Afterwards, the priest would write the oaths contained in Numbers 5:19-22 on a parchment scroll. Ordinarily, in Biblical Times, it was forbidden to erase the sacred name, but here God commanded that His Name be erased in order to bring peace between man and wife.

Can you hear the shadow of the things to come that are here even now? Bridal candidates hold the grain-offering in her hands – the True Bread of Heaven – Yeshua. They hold onto Him for all that they are worth through the most difficult of circumstances. Remember, this is the place where the fiery eyes of Yeshua Ha Machiach searches  a person’s souls with the goal of the True Bread of Heaven manifesting fully through the supernatural enablement of the seven-fold Spirits of God (Isaiah 11:1-2). When a Bridal Candidate’s faithfulness is being tested at this level of purification, the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro throughout the whole earth – your earth and mine – is the substance that comes out of heaven – manna – that humbles and tests us. (Please refer to http://wp.me/p2k1dQ-lZ .) As we press into letting His Word sift us, we are transformed by the renewing of our minds and we prove the Father’s acceptable will through our lives (Romans 12:2).

Another present day expressions of a shadow of things to come is the High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek holds the bitter water in His hands as His Bride moves about His courts. The Temple Courtyard is symbolic of the body. It is here that by “the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service” (Romans 12:1 NKJV).

The waters are called bitter, because purification (like sanctification) is a bittersweet process. One’s soul doesn’t like to die. We fight it, even when we desire it with all our heart. Therefore, these waters of purification are bitter until the tree is thrown in the water (Exodus 15: 25). When the Tree of Life is thrown in the water, the waters that our Great High Priest holds become sweet in order to sanctify and cleanse His Bride with the washing of water by the word (Ephesians 5:25-26). We know that the Tree of Life is synonymous with the Cross in this case, because the erasing of His Sacred Name speaks of: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

Be encouraged Bridal Hearts! You are ONE who will endure to the end. The wayward wife in the Old Testament was found pure after she went through this arduous, humiliating process. The Messiah’s Bride will do no less. The All-Consuming Fire will lead us by His Spirit and His Word to the place where no carnal flesh will remain; and we will become – ONE – bone of His bone and flesh of His divine flesh.

HITTING THE BULL’S EYE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS – PART 5 – NEVER CUT OFF THE BODY FROM THE HEAD

Book Dream

The mysteries of God’s Kingdom have always existed, but their vast reality has barely been delved into until such a time as this. The Lord is unveiling much more about a mystery, which He calls His Pure and Spotless Bride. Her code name is the New Jerusalem (Rev 3:12; 21:2) or the One New Man in Christ (Eph 2:15).

Please don’t get hung up on gender specific terms; because both men and women are called to be sons of God, the Bride of Christ, and the One New Man. Let’s contemplate how the perfect resurrection of Christ’s Body will inaugurate the age of the Bride of Christ or the New Jerusalem or the One New Man in Christ – these three being one as diverse aspects of the same consummation. In Him and in fellowship with one another, we are actually being built according to His time and His way into an eternal dwelling place for the King of Kings.

A radically new dispensation has arrived upon the scene of human history every two thousand years since the dawn of man’s time (Biblically speaking). The first two thousand year mark in man’s time saw Abraham walked up Mount Moriah to worship God by offering up his son Issac. Many experts agree that God’s physical temple in Jerusalem – the city of our great king – was built upon the same Mount Moriah. Two-thousand years later, which is also approximately two thousand years ago for us, another Fullness of Time came when Yeshua (Jesus) was born so we might be reconciled to God: “But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons” (Gal 4:4-5).

A very appropriate word for the season, we just entered is the word “dispensation,” which simply put means an administrative system. It’s an ordering of events under divine authority. The Almighty One is in charge of this and any shift in the divine order of earthly things. He has been, and will always be, large and in charge. He is simply administering things on earth a bit different than before, and it affects everything we do and who we are. That’s the point. God is making adjustments so that His Resurrected Body of Believers and Bridal Company can come into their fullness. If God can measure the waters of the earth in the hollow of His hand, and with the breath of His hand mark off the heavens; then know that a small thing for the Lord, like a global shift in the earth’s administration, will probably be massive, even revolutionary, to us.

Spiritually speaking, the people of God are “a royal priesthood” (1 Pet. 2:9) and at the same time we are being built into a spiritual house [i.e. temple]” (1 Pet. 2:5). From heaven’s point of view, God’s people aren’t in a temple; we are the temple with each of us being a living stone. We are also its priests, but only the sons of a King can be considered royalty.

The whole world has entered the latest season of divine administration – Fullness of Times – where Christ’s Mature Head will be ultimately united with His mature Body. [Please see the KEYS TO THE REDEMPTION OF OUR BODY links below, and for more information about the “Fullness of Time”, please refer to: http://wp.me/p158HG-yo.]

Recall that Jeremiah 33:18 lists three progressive crucifixion steps for the Bride’s Baptism of Fire, which are spiritual sacrifices still required of God’s Holy Priesthood: “For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually” (Jer 33:17-18 KJV).

What we are keying in on today is the phrase “never want” in “David has never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Is-real.” Those words “never want” not only refer to royalty (i.e. the throne of David), but to priests as we flow into the next verse. Within this passage of Scripture, LOVE reveals an ancient key for kings and priests of the Most High God.

On the surface level the phrase “never want” in Hebrew speaks of an absolute prohibition of taking away His royal priestly covenant as well as being an absolute prohibition of cutting off the Body from its Head – the Messiah (Eph 4:15-16).

If we dig a little deeper into the Ancient Hebrew Word Pictures for the phrase “never want”, we see that the word “never” tells us that Abba gives direction to what is first and what will prod or urge us forward, in addition to Abba gives us strength to control our tongues so we can move toward Him. The Ancient Hebrew Word Picture for “want” speaks of opening the door that reveals the path to the way of life. It shows us how to be covered by His throne.

So here’s to the Lord being our Shepherd and we shall never want! Here’s to Christ’s Head never being cut off from His Body of Royal Priests!!!

HITTING THE BULL’S EYE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS – PART 3 – STEPS FOR THE BRIDE’S BAPTISM OF FIRE

Stairway to Heaven

“Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3 NAS).

Through the Eternal Order of Melchizedek, the Lord will birth His “Bridal Company” in the earth, which will completely conform to the Living Word and the Spirit of Christ. Right now, a Royal Priesthood is beginning to march anew throughout the earth, as the predecessor of the Bride. These are ones who were once far off, but are, even now, being brought nearer and nearer until they literally become ONE with the Almighty, as they willingly lay down their flesh in order to receive all of Calvary’s dividends.

Let’s look at the passage that shows us the way we can be enthroned (i.e. clothed) in righteousness. Jeremiah 33:18 reveals three progressive crucifixion steps, which are spiritual sacrifices still required of God’s Holy Priesthood (1 Pet 2:5). This is the process by which Crucified Ones will hit the Father’s bull’s eye of righteousness. This is the procedure that will hone the essence of the Messiah’s Bride, so she can be named: “The Lord is our righteousness.” Just remember that His Beautiful Bride will be the embodiment of who she is married to.

” ‘Behold, days are coming,’ declares the LORD, ‘when I will fulfill the good word which I have spoken concerning the house of Israel and the house of Judah. ‘In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch of David to spring forth ; and He shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth. ‘In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will dwell in safety ; and THIS IS THE NAME BY WHICH SHE WILL BE CALLED : THE LORD IS OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.’ For thus says the LORD, ‘David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel ; and the Levitical priests shall never lack a man before Me to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings and to prepare sacrifices continually .’ ” (Jeremiah 33:14-18 NAS).

The crucifixion process outlined in Jeremiah 33:18, which will completely circumcise one’s sin nature is:

[1] offer burnt offerings,
[2] burn grain offerings, and
[3] prepare sacrifices continually.

These are the steps of the Baptism of Fire that His pure and spotless Bride will be required to go through, so she will be able to live and move and have her being in a continually surrendered state to do the Father’s perfect will. These transformative stages will facilitate the New Jerusalem being called: “The Lord is our righteousness” (Jer 33:16).

Right now the Bride of Christ is hungry for righteousness. She is seeking first His Kingdom and His righteousness above all else. In a dry and thirsty land, His Bride thirsts for the refreshing, joyous life that only righteousness brings. The Water of Life that flows from His throne is imprinted with righteousness, justice, holiness and truth; and it is the Lamb of God – our Great Shepherd – that guides us to these springs of living water (Rev 7:17).

Nehemiah 3:1 reveals that Jerusalem’s Sheep Gate needs to be repaired first. We don’t know exactly why, but we do know that it was the priest’s inheritance to make offerings by fire to the Lord. To me, this speaks of the need in our day for kings and priests to set the stage, so people can bring their offerings to the Lord. BTW – It was only at the Sheep Gate that God’s priests were sanctified with the word and prayer. These are necessary components to the Bride’s purification.

When Jerusalem’s Sheep Gate was repaired in Nehemiah’s day, Eliashib was the High Priest who led the consecration and building of God’s Holy City. This is a picture of what we need to do today to set apart His people to build His Bride (which is the Holy City, the New Jerusalem (Rev 21:2,9)). Eliashib’s name means “The Almighty will restore.” The Ancient Hebrew Word Picture for Eliashib’s name speaks of the all-consuming work of El Shaddai done within His Body is the progressive work of the Father that moves us forward, so we can be built into His permanent dwelling place (i.e. be His Bride).

BTW – Before we go into the details for our initial step in the Bride’s Baptism of Fire, let’s understand a precedence set by God Himself when it comes to offerings made by fire. Abel was the first one to bring an “offering by fire” to the Lord. In Hebrew, the original text of Genesis 4:4 reveals that not only did Abel bring the firstborn of his flock, he also brought himself (offered his heart) while Cain only brought his offering. This is what made Abel’s sacrifice acceptable, and Cain’s not. Whenever we speak of an offering, always think of yourself first and foremost.
