BEHOLD, A BODY PREPARED TO DO THY WILL

body - Bronze Sculptures Emerging in Walls by Matteo Pugliese

The literal animal sacrifices called the Burnt Offerings have been fulfilled in Christ, as articulated in Hebrews 10:10. Notice that this verse is proceeded with the concept that God desires a body (a mature body of Christ attached to a mature head) that comes to do His will, as Jesus did (John 5:19). “Therefore, when He comes into the world, He says, “SACRIFICE AND OFFERING YOU HAVE NOT DESIRED, BUT A BODY YOU HAVE PREPARED FOR ME; IN WHOLE BURNT OFFERINGS AND sacrifices FOR SIN YOU HAVE TAKEN NO PLEASURE. “THEN I SAID, ‘BEHOLD, I HAVE COME (IN THE SCROLL OF THE BOOK IT IS WRITTEN OF ME) TO DO YOUR WILL, O GOD.’” After saying above, “SACRIFICES AND OFFERINGS AND WHOLE BURNT OFFERINGS AND sacrifices FOR SIN YOU HAVE NOT DESIRED, NOR HAVE YOU TAKEN PLEASURE in them” (which are offered according to the Law), then He [said, “BEHOLD, I HAVE COME TO DO YOUR WILL.” He takes away the first in order to establish the second. By this will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” (Hebrews 10:5-10 NASB).

Since Jesus Christ’s once-for-all sacrifice on the cross, the burnt offering picture is now fulfilled in us as the maturing Body of Christ that comes to do the Father’s perfect will, as Jesus (Yeshua) directed His disciples: “Then said Jesus unto His disciples, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. … For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:24,26 KJV). Whatever you or I don’t die to (through denying oneself, taking up Christ’s Cross and following Him to be co-crucified in union with Christ as Galatians 2:20 speaks about), is the very thing(s) you and I are exchanging for the transformation/transfiguration of our own soul. BTW – Your life and my life can prove three different levels of the will of God… that which is good, acceptable or perfect (Romans 12:2). This post is speaking about the highest level of the perfect will of our Heavenly Father. Basically, it all boils down to either choosing the Kingdom of Self or the Kingdom of God.

WHAT IS ASCENSION IN CHRIST?

ascension-7-spirits

Ascension in Christ is all about rising from a prostrate (i.e., humble) position to the place purchased for believers on the cross where we are seated together in Christ Jesus in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). We each have been given a royal invitation in Revelation 4:1 to “come up here,” and God will show us what is on His heart, if we go surrendered to the perfect will of Father God. Both individuals and groups can go through the Revelation 4:1 Door to enjoy these supernatural encounters of the divine kind.

The initial goal is getting to know God better, which is always a component of these ascension experiences in Christ. Another goal is actually see the life of Yeshua (Jesus) made manifest in mortal flesh (1 Corinthians 4:11). In Ascension experiences, God instructs us on how to carry the Presence of God. Since the Body of Christ is a corporate entity, Group Ascensions are the perfect vehicles to attach Christ’s Head manifestly to a precious part of His Body. Group Ascension provides the unveiling of Christ in His Body. BTW – There are places in the heavenly realms that we can go corporately that we cannot go individually. The Body of Christ, the One New Man in Christ, the Order of Melchizedek, and the Bride of Christ are all corporate entities.

We can ascend and descend on the Son of Man (Yeshua Ha Machiach – Jesus Christ) by the three that bear witness in earth: the spirit, and the water, and the blood, which are one with the three that bear record in heaven the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit (John 1:51; 1 John 5:6-8). Simply put. Believers can ascend and descend on Yeshua by choosing to in our spirits to go through the Blood of the Lamb by faith to the place of Heavenly Father God – the Almighty.

BRIDE WITHOUT SPOT OR BLEMISH

bride-white-horse-winter

What happens to a body when most of its skin pores are infected?

Please forgive the graphic picture; but for over a week now, I have had a pretty-disgusting vision of the Lord popping a huge zit. I finally grabbed a clue and asked Him what’s up with it. He told me that most of the Body of Christ is infected and its related to the clogged pores of a body.

Due to the extreme amount of research that I’ve done on Christmas (at His leading), I know that 97-98% of Americans and 95-96% of people worldwide celebrate Christmas (http://wp.me/p158HG-DF). This Golden Calf Worship (i.e., Christmas) is what is infecting the Body of Christ. (See http://wp.me/p158HG-kH or http://wp.me/p158HG-2m.)

Remember the Bible says that, if possible, even the elect will be deceived. It is possible; therefore, it behooves all of us to be humble and teachable. John Bevere shares: “What’s really going to deceive Christians in the last days won’t appear as blatant evil. It is going to be a form of good that is blatantly evil in God’s eyes.” I can tell you unequivocally that Christmas is detestable in God’s eyes. (Please refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-Dx or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbEuq3Tz2Q8.)

Of the 95-98% of people who celebrate Christmas, many are Christians. If Christmas represents a rampant infection in the Body of Christ (which it is), my question is: When can a skin infection become serious, or life-threatening?

After the Lord told me that most of the Body of Christ is infected and showed me clogged pores, He told me that individuals in the Body of Christ can pop their own zits, or He will. Yeh… Isn’t that a pretty picture?! But think about it. The Lord our God loves us. If the Body of Christ is infected (as He says); then He is simply doing what’s best for us.

It’s safe to say that most, if not all of us, have had a pimple. I know that the zit I saw in the vision was painful, red and swollen with the infection showing. Who has not felt the relief once a pimple or boil has been alleviated? In fact, this type of skin infection can only be cured by getting rid of the infection.

Severe acne usually indicates the necessity of prescription medication to treat the pimples, which in this case the prescription is the Blood of the Lamb applied when we come out of agreement with the infecting substance. Yeshua (Jesus) put it this way: “The mixture of Christmas grieves my heart. Come out of Babylon and lay down Christmas, for I will have a pure and spotless Bride” (refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-4E).

Once an infection is cleansed, practicing good hygiene is key to keeping clean and healthy. We need to regularly wash in the water of the word (Eph. 5:26) and line up with its plumb line.

The Lord loves us and wants us to be a Bride without spot or blemish. In this case, the blemish of Christmas is infecting the Body of Christ; and either we will sanitize it, or He will.

Choose this day…

SONS OF MAN BECOMING SONS OF GOD

man-white-fiber-freq

Metatron, the Prince of the Presence, is the undifferentiated state of the Messiah. What is the heavenly manifestation of the One New Man in Christ (i.e., Messiah) anyway? Yeshua (Jesus), who is the Messiah, is seated in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). He is the Head of the Body of Christ (Ephesians 4:15). The Body of Christ is currently in flux. We currently see various stages of development in the Body of Christ here on earth. Romans 8:19 reveals that all creation is groaning for the manifestation of the sons of the Living God. They are groaning for those made after the Order of Melchizedek made like unto the Son of God (Hebrews 7:3). The “Youth” Metatron consists of the sons of man who have become the sons of God. Understand that Metatron only consists of the Fully Mature Body of Christ connected to the Fully Mature Head of Christ – Yeshua. We can be, and are, part of the One New Man in Christ on earth, but Metatron solely consists of people who have literally become just like Jesus in heavenly places. This is one of the reasons Metatron is called the angel (not an archangel), the Prince of the Presence.

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 ” (Revelation 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” (Matthew 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 Corinthians 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 (Ephesians 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” (Matthew 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.

You are doing well

Crown Pearls

Want to encourage THE BODY OF CHRIST today to choose the better part. Stand. Speak. Be royalty.

I hear Love say, “You are doing well.”

This phrase may cause you to think of how many times you have failed or gotten into your own will. Did you know that He says that you needed to do that to die completely to your own will and come into full agreement with heaven’s will? The LORD your God will use everything that you’ve experience for His glory. Let go of all condemnation. Let go of all blame. Let go of all sin, and live in Him.

HE IS simply irresistible!

Will you be made whole?

Fire & Water by JeWelL

Have you ever felt stagnant or stuck? Do you feel a need to contend for a breakthrough? Maybe your missing link is the need to set your heart and mind to being made whole; and then, persevering come what may.

The previous Sapphire Throne Ministries facebook post revealed that as we trust and walk with the Son of God in the midst of the fire, our yielded bodies – the entirety of a person’s nature or development – will be made whole.

Yeshua (Jesus) asked an impotent man; “Will you be made whole?” in John 5:6. It blew my mind yesterday when I saw the different messages that the word “whole” communicates (please refer to Strong’s Greek NT:5199 and NT:837). I basically understood that the “Will you be made whole?” question has been also directed to you and me, because currently the universal corporate body of Christ is impotent to a degree.

Yeshua is asking a certain infirm corporate Son of Man made up of immature sons:

•          Will you grow up?

•          Will you choose to mature?

•          Will you become a corporate body?

•          Will you be true and sound in doctrine?

•          Will you increase in My government and My peace?

Know that both the All-Consuming Fire and the Water of Life work together to make this happen. In No Man’s Land, sons who are being refined are seasoned with fire as well as being plunged into the Water of Life, so they can be MADE WHOLE (Rev 21:6; John 5:7; Mark 9:49):

•          Complete in body, soul and spirit.

•          Complete morally, mentally, and emotionally.

•          Complete in labor and growth.

•          A full age man.

•          A mature man.

•          An adult son.

BTW – No Man’s Land is the space and place where people daily yield to the crucifixion process (Matt 3:11; Matt 15:24; Gal 2:20), which is a personalized Baptism of Fire directed by the loving and gracious Spirit of the Living God. Walking in the same manner as Jesus in being crucified in union with Christ will enable our Kingdom of Self to disappear and the Kingdom of God to appear within ourselves; and then, unfold without to the whole wide world.

Keys to the Redemption of Our Body – Part 1

Return of Christ

There was a good and just man who was the only one to have charge of the burial of the Body of Jesus. His story holds some kingdom keys for us today on how to prepare the crucified Body of Christ for the ultimate redemption of our Body.

KEYS TO THE REDEMPTION OF OUR BODY – PART 1

If we take a close look at the account of Yeshua’s crucifixion in Mark 15, we see an honorable gentleman who was a member of the Sanhedrin (the supreme council or court in ancient Israel) – Joseph of Arimathaea. While Matthew 27:57 tells us he was a rich man, John 19:38 reveals that he was a secret disciple of Jesus. Luke 23:50 also declares him to be a good and just man.

Significantly, we are told that Joseph of Arimathaea was a man who waited for the Kingdom of God and craved the body of Jesus (Mark 15:43).

The word “waited” carries a whole lot more meaning than merely tarrying. We can interpret that Joseph of Arimathaea “waited for the Kingdom of God” several different ways: [1] He received to his own self the Kingdom of God. [2] He was admitted into the Kingdom of God. [3] He gave access to the Kingdom of God within Himself. [4] He was received into an intimate Kingdom of God relationship and companionship. [5] He was received as one coming from the Kingdom of God place. [6] He accepted the Kingdom of God. [7] He expected the fulfillment of the promises of the Kingdom of God.

The name “Joseph” means “let him add.” When we combine the meaning of Joseph’s name and the previous expansion of the concept of “waited for the Kingdom of God,” Isaiah 9:7 comes to mind, because God’s Kingdom and His government are synonymous: “Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”

This just man who waited for the Kingdom of God and craved the body of Jesus speaks to me of “we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the REDEMPTION OF OUR BODY” (Romans 8:23 KJV). Recall that the Bible tells us that “we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another” (Romans 12:5 NKJV).

So this good and just man who was the only one to have charge of the burial of the Body of Jesus holds some kingdom keys for us today on how to prepare the crucified Body of Christ for the ultimate redemption of our Body. “So Joseph bought some linen cloth, took down the body, wrapped it in the linen, and placed it in a tomb cut out of rock. Then he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb” (Mark 15:46 NIV). Notice that the crucified Body of Christ was wrapped in fine linen, and placed in a tomb carved out of rock with a stone for its door.

1. Fine Linen – Rev 19 speaks of two companies that are arrayed in fine linen: [1] The Bride of Christ, the wife of the Lamb (Revelation 19:7-8; Revelation 21:9, 2-3) and [2] The armies which were in heaven who follow One whose garment is dipped in blood and His name is called the Word of God (Revelation 19:13-14). It’s important to note that Rev 19:8 points out that the clean and white fine linen that arrays the wife of the Lamb is the righteous acts of the saints.

2. Tomb hewn out of Rock – The Church (i.e. the called out “ekklessia” – the Legislative Assembly of the Lord) is built upon the rock (Matt 16:18), which is Christ (1 Corinthians 10:4). It’s noteworthy that Matt 7:24 equates a wise man who built his house on the rock to whoever hears His words and does them. Wise virgins should probably take note (Matthew 25:1-13).

3. Stone for the Tomb’s Door – The entrance to Yeshua’s tomb was blocked by a stone, which the angels rolled away for His Resurrected Body. Understand that the word for “stone” in Hebrew is a contraction of two words: 1) av = father, 2) ben = son. Therefore, a stone is a picture of the Father and Son being so integrated that you can’t seem to figure out where one begins and another ends. It’s their essence of ONENESS, as proclaimed in John 17:21. Therefore, as we dwell with Him, He twists and rolls us together into One – One Body (Ephesians 1:10; Ephesians 4:4). For more information on the “stone” kingdom concept, please see the http://facebook.com/SapphireThroneMinistries post on 07-19-13.

Christ’s mature Head will connect to His mature Body

Scrolls Heavenly

In this Kingdom Day, Christ’s mature Head will connect to His mature Body.

“But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ” (1 Corinthians 11:3 KJV).

“But speaking the truth in love, WE ARE TO GROW UP IN ALL ASPECTS INTO HIM WHO IS THE HEAD, EVEN CHRIST, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love” (Ephesians 4:15-16 NASB emphasis mine).

Many years ago, I was taught by my mentor about the image we see in Scripture when Yeshua the Messiah returns: “And in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. HIS HEAD AND HAIR WERE WHITE LIKE WOOL, AS WHITE AS SNOW, and His eyes like a flame of fire” (Revelation 1:13-14 NKJV emphasis mine).

White hair on the Son of man’s Head speaks of Jesus Christ’s mature state when He comes again. Christ’s mature head will NOT be attaching to an immature or child-like body, so let’s all press toward the mark of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (Phil 3:14): “Christ in you, the hope of glory. He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.” (Colossians 1:27b-28 NIV).

“So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the BODY OF CHRIST MAY BE BUILT UP UNTIL WE ALL REACH UNITY IN THE FAITH AND IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE SON OF GOD AND BECOME MATURE, ATTAINING TO THE WHOLE MEASURE OF THE FULLNESS OF CHRIST.” (Ephesians 4:11-13 NIV emphasis mine).

 “For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to THE WORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, for he is an infant. But SOLID FOOD IS FOR THE MATURE, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil. Therefore leaving the elementary teaching about the Christ, let us press on to maturity…” (Hebrews 5:13-14; Hebrews 6:1a NASB emphasis mine).

What does it take for the maturation of Christ’s Body which is also the “redemption of our body” (Romans 8:23) both corporately and individually? Basically, we all need to search out the concepts in the above Scriptures, and endeavor to walk in their reality: [1] Speaking the truth in love. [2] Reach unity in the knowledge of the Son of God. [3] Reach unity in the faith of the Son of God. [4] Leave elementary teaching about Christ where we simply have faith in Jesus to attain the higher calling of God of the whole measure of the fullness of Christ, which is walking in the mature state of having the faith of Jesus. [5] Be nourished by the solid food of “the word of righteousness.”

BRAZEN BELIEVERS – Heaven Meets Earth – Part 2 (Selfless Love)

Snow

First Corinthians 10:11 tells us: “Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.” What things? Passing through the Red Sea, eating manna, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. It’s what happened to the Israelites in the wilderness after they left Egypt, which is spoken of throughout the Old Testament, especially the first five books of the Bible. Yeshua (i.e., Jesus) and His disciples taught from the Old Testament and so did Paul. If it’s good enough for Yeshua, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Paul, it’s good enough for the followers of Yeshua too.

BRAZEN LAVER

The priests washed their hands and feet in the Temple Laver before they entered the tent where they met God. “You shall also make a laver of bronze, with its base of bronze, for washing; and you shall put it between the tent of meeting and the altar, and you shall put water in it.” (Exodus 30:18 NASB). Many Christian Bibles call the Temple Laver the Bronze Laver. This is a misnomer, for it was actually made of copper.

Laver - BrentKington

The copper laver was an open circular basin that was set upon a copper base. The Hebrew Sage Rashi[1] said it had two spouts at the bottom through which the water would flow[2] keeping it from becoming stagnant. In the Hebrew language the term “for washing” carries the idea that the laver was “for sanctification;”[3] therefore the actual purpose for the priests washing their hands and feet was for holiness and sanctity rather than cleanliness (Exod. 30:17-21).

The hands and feet represent the upper and lower extremities of the human body. By sanctifying their appendages, it was symbolic of the servants of the Lord’s total devotion to the service they were engaged in. It set apart their acts as righteous.

A most literal picture of this is presented to us in Exodus 30:19. The Hebrew Sage Or HaChaim said that the conjunction in the phrase “their hands together with their feet” (Exod. 30:19) indicated that the hands and feet must be washed at the same time.[4] Consequently, the right hand was placed on the priest’s right foot and washed together at the same time, followed by his left hand together with his left foot. Concentration and balance were key to accomplishing this hand-foot sanctification feat. Try it some time in your bathtub.  I had the kids in my Children’s Church class try to do this by simply standing next to their chairs. It was a lot more difficult than they thought and funny too. It’s quite the image of proper service to God requires all of a body’s faculties, and those faculties must be directed toward the same goal.[5]

The laver was not made of copper from the regular contributions. The laver was made exclusively from the brightly polished sheets of copper that women used as mirrors in Egypt (Exod. 38:8).[6] When the call went out for freewill contributions, devout women, who used to come to Moses’ tent to sit at his feet like Mary did with Jesus,[7] came with their copper mirrors and piled them up at Moses’ dwelling, which was the God’s dwelling place prior to the tent of meeting being built (Exod. 33:7). Moses was said to be reluctant to accept such gifts for the tabernacle due to his initial thinking that the mirrors had been used to incite lust.

Copper Mirror

The story goes that God told Moses that he was wrong, because these very mirrors had been instrumental in saving the nation. In Egypt, when the men came home exhausted every night from heavy labors, their wives used these mirrors to get all dolled up to entice their husbands to continue normal martial relations. Thanks to these brightly, polished copper mirrors, legions of Jewish children were born. God not only told Moses to accept these precious mirrors, but they were to be used exclusively to fabricate the laver. The Bible doesn’t give the specific size of the laver due to that fact that every single mirror had to go into fashioning it, no matter how big it would become – so sacred were those mirrors. [8], [9] Of note, these devout women could no longer gaze upon themselves with any vanity, because they had to fix their eyes upon the laver to see themselves. The laver represents bridal lovers fixing their eyes upon the Author and Perfecter of their faith (Heb. 12:2).

The extreme reach of the body of Christ should be set apart for a sacred purpose. The farthest boundary of the One New Man in Christ should be free from sin due to our special tie (i.e. connected relationship) with Yeshua. The word “tie” is from a Greek verb, which means “to bind.” It has many nuances. We can think of the concept of being restrained by authority, influence, agreement, or obligation. We can also think of a special tie that binds people together romantically. A marital tie binds two people together physically, mentally, and spiritually.

If our lives yield to the Lord of Love and His sacred purposes, then we will not be tied hand and foot to be thrown out of the wedding feast (Matt. 22:1-13). I sought My Love about what it means that one of his friends would be cast outside for not having the proper clothing, and I believe that He told me: Once the friend saw the glory of the wedding feast, “outside” the feast would appear as darkness for he or she would weep at glimpsing, yet not being able to partake of the marriage feast. It is noteworthy that this place outside the wedding feast is also assigned to hypocrites – where people’s actions don’t line up with their words (Matt. 24:51).

SELFLESS LOVE

The priests of old washing their hands and feet in the laver before entering the tent of meeting represents purity of what they did and where they went — obedience. Obedience in our actions is a symptom of the condition of our hearts. God cleans our hearts through confession of sin. “If we confess our sins, then He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sin and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). It is interesting to note that the Brazen Laver in Exodus was put between the tent of meeting and the bronze altar. We must first accept that Yeshua died for our sins before we can request to be cleaned up (Acts 22:16; 1 Cor 6:11).

In fact, our cleanliness, our right standing before God, is that Father God sees Yeshua not us. Yeshua basically runs interference for us. He is our covering before Father to the dismay of the Accuser. Believers have their own part to play.  Remember there needs to be relationship, or some say agreement, between heaven and earth, God and man.  Looking at 2 Chronicles 7:14 we see that God’s people have requirements for cleansing (i.e. healing). “If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

First, believers are to admit the truth, which immediately leads to humble position. “I fall short. I’ve sinned. I can’t do it on my own.” C. S. Lewis is quoted to have said: Pride is the national religion of hell. Spirit inspired prayer will follow as a natural reaction to godly humility. Second, our spirit-led prayer results in greater intimacy with God. God says in Matthew 7:7 that if you continually seek Me, you will find Me. Third, believers are not just supposed to confess their sin; they are called to turn from their sin in repentance. This is not just an outward turning from sin, but a conscious shift from self to God.  Once these three conditions are met, God then hears the people’s prayer request(s) and cleanses the land from sin. Land can either be the physical ground or people.

Please stick with me as I re-iterate probably the most significant concept connected to the Brazen Laver. In the Old Testament, God gives us a picture in how the Mosaic purification vessel (i.e., laver) was made. “Moreover, he made the laver of bronze with its base of bronze, from the mirrors of the serving women who served at the doorway of the tent of meeting” (Exodus 38:8).  These women served at the point of entry into the tabernacle where there was a screen separating those who could come into the tabernacle from those who could not. The screen’s material was hung upon five pillars.  Five has the spiritual meaning of grace. We can only come into God’s tabernacle by grace (Ephesians 2:8-9).

I believe the mirrors of the serving women represent earthly vanity. They could no longer look at themselves in their own mirrors. These women could no longer look at the temporal, material things when their copper mirrors were melted. They had to look at the laver to see themselves. These women had to look into the mirror of truth, Yeshua, which is a picture of Him purifying them through His shed blood. Their ability to look at self was taken away. They died to self, which is true humility.

All believers are called to die daily to self through the work of the Holy Spirit to be instruments of God. “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and delivered Himself up for me” (Galatians 2:20).

One other thing I’d like to zero in on is that these were serving women. These women serving at the doorway of the tent of meeting helped people to enter in and meet God.  We enter in and meet God through Yeshua — the Way, the Truth and the Life. We are all called to serve God by loving our fellow man and by pointing them to the cross. Christian service is always initiated by divine love, which overflows from our hearts when we commune with the Lord.  In fact, the only distinguishing characteristic Yeshua gave His disciples which set them apart is “all men shall know that you are My disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:35).

I believe the first New Testament saints to personify servanthood through love were the women who followed and ministered to Yeshua. Service based on divine love was the hallmark of these godly women. They waited on Yeshua, and I believe, his disciples at every turn during His three years of ministry.  These women had seen and experienced Yeshua’s deliverance from evil spirits and sicknesses. Yeshua knew/knows love is an action as well as a wonderful feeling.  In fact, the Hebrew Word picture for love ahav tells us that love is what the Father’s heart revealed.[10]

We, as Christians, are bondservants of Christ called to serve God and His people. I have yet to find in Scripture where Jesus asked these women for anything.  Do you think they intuitively knew Jesus’ needs and desires?  I do.  Do you think they studied his likes and dislikes?  I do.  I stumbled upon Gene Edward’s book The Divine Romance after I got this picture of service based upon divine love.  Listen to the heart of our Father through Edward’s eloquent words:

“About twenty men and four women accompanied wherever he traveled. From the day of her deliverance, she did not ask, she simply became part of that little band of followers.  Wherever he went, she went, and poured out her whole love and her whole life on him. In the earliest hours of the morning she could be found preparing his breakfast.  When he sat down to teach, she was there, at his feet.  When he departed, she departed with him. When those twenty men asked too much of him, she quietly, firmly, protested. She washed his feet, served his meals, cared for his clothes, placed fruit beside his bed in the evening.  He who said of himself, “I am the living water,” always had cool water to drink – brought by her hands. When nights were cold, she made sure the house where he was guested would be warm.  In the hot, blistering sun of summer, she walked with the little band of followers, village to village, city to city – always following him.

Why such devotion?

Because she adored him.  Fervently, single-mindedly, she loved him. She was totally enamored, completely enraptured, and utterly in love with her Lord and Master. She was embarrassingly, unembarrassed about the matter.

The others eventually grew used to the sight of her single-minded adoration and her uninhibited out-pouring of affection, which continued unceasingly from dawn to the last  light of night.

They even learned from her. Oh, they all professed a love for him that was equal to hers.  But they spoke of overthrowing Rome, of abolishing the present Hebrew state, of setting up a spectacular throne, of avenging the vicious rumors that seemed always to be spread about concerning the Lord.  They dreamed of wielding both political and spiritual power, of casting out demons, of throwing Caesar into a dungeon and Satan into a burning pit.  They professed love, but talked power and fame.  Little by little they changed. As months turned to years, they spoke less of conquest and got down to the business of loving their God.

The most amazing thing of all was this: He responded. He poured out love in return.  It seemed a little odd, the Son of God, caring, affectionate, loving, and returning love … so profoundly, so totally.  That God might love, with such ardor, was simply something that had never occurred to them.  Nor could they quite understand why they found it so difficult to express love toward him.  Her mother before her had failed at this same simple matter for centuries, but now, before all eyes, this simple girl was unfolding the highest order of the universe.  To love her God.

Watching her, they learned. For though she expressed her love in service and care, she expressed her love more in eyes, in heart, in soul, and in the fervor and passion of her whole being.  No abstraction, this love.  An unnerving thing this.  Unwavering, day after day, with total abandon loving him.  You saw it in her eyes, in her kneeling, in moments of praise and rejoicing, and when she looked into his face – which was almost always.[11]

This incredible woman deeply moved Yeshua to weep right before He rose her brother Lazarus from the dead (John 11: 32-35). Her name was Mary Magdalene. Her place was at Jesus’ feet. It is written that she chose the better part by sitting at Yeshua’s feet and listening attentively to every word that proceeded from His mouth (Luke 10:38-42).  There is some controversy over who Mary Magdalene actually was. I believe that she was the woman with a past where Scripture testifies that Jesus cast out seven demons from her (Luke 8:2; Mark 16:9), but I am open to correction, if proven otherwise. The Pharisees recognized her as an immoral woman (a brazen hussy), but Jesus saw her as a Brazen Believer after he had saved, healed and delivered her out of darkness into God’s glorious light.

Remember that I discussed the redemptive qualities of “brazen,” which includes contemptuous boldness — a state of being despised but being bold anyway. Can you imagine being publicly known as a harlot and being so bold as to enter a man’s house that had the authority to stone you to death? Why would she risk it? Only one thing could make her throw caution to the wind. Her beloved Savior and Deliverer, Yeshua, was in that Pharisee’s house. But, so were a houseful of legalistic men, who were probably among those who used and abused her. Now kick it up a notch due to the self-righteous, disapproving accusations over her “wasting” a year’s wages that could have gone to the poor when she poured out the expensive perfume on Jesus’ feet. She was definitely despised by this company of Pharisees, after all, they were the ones “worthy” of Jesus’ time and attention. If wetting Jesus’ feet with tears, wiping them with her hair, kissing them and anointing them with expensive perfume isn’t bold in the face of a bunch of the eyes full of daggers, I don’t know what is!

The quintessential example of a Brazen Believer is Mary Magdalene. Our Lord Jesus Christ said that she would be known forever as the one who anointed Him for His burial (John 12:7) as well as being the one who loved much because she had been forgiven much (Luke 7:40-43).

Mary Magdalene’s unwavering devotion led her to closely follow Jesus through His life, death, burial and resurrection. Mary Magdalene, Jesus’ mother and the Apostle John were the first to typify “the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes” (Rev 14:4). For example: [1] Mary Magdalene was among the small group to personally experience the agony, and thus, share in Jesus’ crucifixion (Matt 27:56). [2] Having moved Jesus to tears, it was Mary Magdalene turn to be deeply moved to weep as she watch Jesus’ dead body be placed in Joseph of Arimathen’s tomb (Matt 27:57-61). [3] Her and “the other Mary” were the first to return after Yeshua’s burial with the purpose of taking care of His body (Matt 28:1-10) to only witness the glorious appearance of an angel who rolled away the stone. While the guards shook with fear and became like dead men, the two Marys received an angelic message: “Do not be afraid; for I know you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said” (Matthew 28:56). All of this is amazing, but take another gigantic leap because this devoted heart — Brazen Believer — was the first person to see Jesus alive after His resurrection (Mark 16:9). Scripture tells us that she clung to Jesus when she saw Him (John 20:17). Can you imagine?!

The women following Jesus were so in love with their Lord and Savior that their acts of service were second nature.  Yeshua walked with the anointing of the Spirit on earth.  I feel that these women through their love and devotion to Christ tapped into that same Spirit to meet every need and desire prompted of God.  It seemed that the only other group besides the disciples, which were consistently closest to Jesus on earth, was the women who followed Him. These women were consistently meeting the needs and desires for all who Yeshua put on their hearts.  Their hearts overflowed with so much love for Jesus that they wanted and yearned to do anything and everything He asked or simply desired.

Before we move on, let’s re-emphasize that the Brazen Altar and Laver speaks of those made in God’s image keeping the priority of divine intimacy over and above anything else. Yes. We are called to do good works. In fact, if we do what Jesus did, we glorify the Father on earth by accomplishing the work that He gives us to do (John 17:4). This being said, please remember that Jesus did nothing unless He was given orders from His heavenly headquarters first (John 5:19). Even Jesus sequestered Himself away from the crowds and His friends to spend one-on-one time with His heavenly Father to see what He was doing.

We must take up our cross daily (Luke 9:23-25) to die to our own self-will in order that we can operate in heaven’s flawless will. There is a place where we will perfectly align with the flow of His extravagant Spirit as well as His faithful Word to such a degree that we will completely abide in Christ where the love of God is truly perfected within God’s Kingdom that’s within you and I. This is how Yeshua made His Father’s name known to men (John 17:6), and it’s something we need to emulate.

The Brazen Altar and the Brazen Laver were Old Testament pictures of the New Testament fulfillment of Jesus.  While here on earth, Yeshua was 100% God and 100% man. Yeshua walking the earth in bodily form is the perfect picture of heaven and earth agreeing to accomplish all that the Father had sent him to do. The earthly body needs to line up with its head — the Messiah. The Greek word for head is kephale meaning that from which everything proceeds.

[3] Harris, Harris, Archer, and Waltke; Theological Word book of the Old Testament: “2150 רָחַץ (rāḥaṣwash. With Times New Roman the transliteration might be more like: rachats. Derivatives 2150a רַחַץ (raḥaṣwashing (Ps 60:10; 108:10). 2150b רַחצָה (raḥṣâwashing (Song 4:2; 6:6). The initial occurrence is Gen 18:4, with over forty-eight occurrences in the Pentateuch, twenty-six in Lev. Among the parts of the body ritually rinsed were: the face (Gen 43:31); the hands (Ex 30:19, 21); the body (Lev 17:16); the feet (Gen 18:4ff). In the Levitical rituals the flesh of sacrificial animals was washed (Lev 1:9 et al.). This washing would normally take a great deal of water and perhaps suggests that Solomon’s great brazen sea was used as a reservoir for such water as well as for other rituals. Several interesting uses of the term appear in Song of Solomon giving details on Israelite cosmetology. The root rāḥaṣ describes the ritual foot washing (5:3) and an eye washing with milk (5:12). A similar usage of washing for romantic appeal appears in Ruth 3:3. But the much more serious use of the root is reserved for the notion of its representing the cleansing from sin (Isa 1:16; 4:4). It is this meaning which is carried throughout Ezek. (16:4, 9; 23:40) and on into the nt in the baptism of John and of Jesus. The nt has a number of references to the ot practices (Jon 2:6; Mt 15:2; Heb 9:10 etc.)”

[4] Scherman, The Chumash, 487: “Together with their feet. The conjunction ta, indicates that the hands and feet must be washed at the same time (Or HaChaim). Consequently, the Kohen places his right hand on his right foot and washes them, and then follows the same procedure with his left hand and foot (Rashi from Zevachim 19b). ”

[9] Exodus 38:30-31 lists the items made from copper from the regular freewill contribution: sockets of the entrance to the tent of meeting, the altar, the sockets of the courtyard all around, the sockets of the gate of the courtyard, all the pegs of the tabernacle, and all the pegs of the courtyard, all around. The laver is NOT included in this list; therefore it was not made with copper from the regular contributions but “from the mirrors of the women who served at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting” (Exod. 38:8).
