CRUX FOR GOD’S DWELLING PRESENCE

Glory

In the beginning God created a pristine garden and a perfect man (Genesis 1:26). This perfect pre-fallen man was a tri-parti being: body, soul and spirit. His perfection was a body clothed in righteousness, a soul that housed the dwelling place of God, and a spirit that constantly communicated with his Creator. Take note, because His people are returning to this heavenly sweet spot, which is our primordial state AS IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING.

Let’s review the “cherubim” classification for the New Living Creature of Melchizedek before we go into how the shekinah glory (His Dwelling Presence) remains in you and me. Please refer to the TAKING ON COMMON UNION series: http://wp.me/p2k1dQ-i9.

Scripture tells us that CHERUBIM:

[1] Mark the spot for us returning to our pristine primeval state. They stand at the entrance of the Garden of Eden with a flaming sword which turns every way to keep the way to the Tree of Life (Gen. 3:24).

[2] Mark the Dwelling Place of God, because He “dwells between the cherubim” (Psa. 80:1). In God’s Dwelling Places that have been built here on earth (Tabernacle, Temple and the New Jerusalem), cherubim are the most frequently sculpted, engraved, & embroidered figures made according to a heavenly pattern given by the Lord Himself (Exo. 26:1, 26:31-33; 36:8, 36:35; 1 Kings 6:29-35; 2 Chron. 3:7).

[3] Carriers of God’s throne, which is the seat of His divine glory as well as His royal power (1 Chron. 28:18). Cherubim make up the foundation of His fiery chariot throne that bears God’s Kingdom here on earth (Dan. 7:9; Ezek. 1:22-28; 10:1). God’s royal priests set out for the goal of the high calling to become just like Yeshua — the High Priest of the eternal order of Melchizedek. His Melchizedek Company is the Messenger that will facilitate the kingdoms of this world becoming the kingdoms of our Lord, and His Christ (Rev. 11:15).

This is the context that is essential to understanding the requirements needed for the Lord’s special dwelling presence to stay. His shekinah literally requires holiness. People have tried to boil holiness down to a formula of dos and don’ts, but that will always miss the mark because holiness is a love issue. Doing what Scripture prescribes for holiness taps into the prerequisites for which God’s Presence can dwell among us, but we must always take into account that His people’s hearts must be totally engaged when we seek to lovingly obey Him.

Believers in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob need to consider that the shekinah glory dwelt in the midst of Israel for generations: “The people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption of sons; theirs the divine glory…” (Rom. 9:4). First century believers understood the biblical holiness requirements, which facilitated God’s dwelling presence. When the Holy Spirit fell at Pentecost, the church experienced His manifest presence. They additionally sustained a multi-generational revival for more than three hundred years, because they understood how to live in God’s presence.

For the church to sustain His awe-filled presence today, we need to accurately grasp His minimum requirements for purity and their relevant application in our lives. Please let us learn from history, so we don’t repeat it. God’s dwelling presence departed from the Christian church when the pagan holidays were assimilated into it. Historical proof is seen in the departure of daily miracles from among them. Scriptural proof is spelled out in Ezekiel 8-11. We are not going into this passage in detail today. Please note, as you personally read it that God’s presence slowly and sorrowfully departed, for He longs for His people to repent so His presence may return or remain.

“Son of man, do you see what they are doing … things that will drive Me far from My sanctuary?” (Ezekiel 8:6). The four idolatrous practices listed in Ezekiel 8:3-5, 9-12, 14, 16 originated in Babylon, and the Bible says that they are detestable to God. BTW – These all have to do with pure worship. Today, we will only peek at the fourth and most detestable practice in His eyes that drives Him far from His sanctuary: “So He brought me into the inner court of the LORD’s house; and there, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs toward the temple of the LORD and their faces toward the east, and they were worshiping the sun toward the east” (Ezekiel 8:16 NKJV).

The fourth and most detestable practice was performed in the inner court of the house of the Lord between the porch and the altar. The inner court symbolizes those who are intimately acquainted with God. The porch is a place of traversing back and forth. It can be akin to a heaven and earth connection. The altar was a platform of sacrificial worship, where worshipers endeavored to meet with their God. So these twenty-five or so men, who were bowing down to the sun with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, were His close companions. They were people who knew and loved the Lord; yet they still grievously bowed down to and worshiped the sun, whether they acknowledged the fact or not.

It is not until Ezekiel 9:3 that the departure of God’s presence begins. His shekinah glory moves over His fiery chariot throne – a set apart remnant of His people. Then, His shekinah glory is carried by the Living Creature from the inner court to the threshold of His sanctuary. The Lord hesitates there to see if His people will notice His leaving. Will they repent and welcome His manifest presence back? He waits, then in Ezekiel 10:19 God’s glory moves further away to the eastern gate. He waits again. His people still won’t repent of their idolatry, so God’s shekinah glory moves out of Jerusalem (the city of our God) across the Kidron Valley to the Mount of Olives (Ezekiel 11:23). Then God waits again for the people to turn from their idols. Where’s does Scripture say that the Lord will return? The Mount of Olives both spiritually and physically (Zechariah 14:4).

The pagans in the fourth century recognized their own solar cults in the church’s adoption of the Nativity of the Unconquered Sun (Mithra’s Winter Festival). They recognized the church assimilation of their pagan practices in the orienting cathedrals to the east, worshiping on “sun day,” and celebrating the birth of the sun god deity at the Winter Solstice. Throughout antiquity, all sun gods across all cultures celebrated their birthday on the ancient winter solstice – December 25th – before the Roman shift in time. The Catholic Encyclopedia even documents that the Nativity or Mithra’s Winter Festival has a strong claim on our December 25th date. Never mind the fact that Constantine had the Vatican built atop the hill where the Mithras cult worshiped the sun. History records that it had become common practice in the fifth century for worshipers entering St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome to turn at the door, put their backs to the altar, and bow down to worship the rising sun. See Ezekiel 8:16.

When the Lord says that “Christmas will be the golden calf of America,” He is telling us that it is idolatry in His eyes. The Lord has given each of us the responsibility to prepare a place for Him: “Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure” (1 John 3:3). His shekinah glory cannot dwell where there is idolatry; therefore, His dwelling presence can not, and will not, coexist with this golden calf we call Christmas. Idolatry is the crux that determines whether His shekinah glory will merely visit His people or dwell among them. If it’s your heart-of-hearts to be part of Yah’s glorious Melchizedek and Bridal companies, you will have to pass through this fire.

TAKING ON COMMON UNION – Part 5

WING OF ROYAL PRIESTS FLYING BY THE SPIRIT

Winged Army Soldier - photo credit Teus Sonhos em Busca da Vida

Once a person is manifestly joined to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit as a New Living Creature, they still need to press on into greater levels of their high calling of God in Christ to be completely ONE not only with God Himself, but with others. This is a divine work which connects the Head – Christ – to His Body that is wrought not by might, nor by power, but by His Spirit (Zechariah 4:6) as well as at the intersection where His will and your will are one. We need to understand how powerful the crucified concept is of “not My will, but thine, be done” (Luke 22:42). God’s Kingdom comes where His perfect will is heard, understood, and done.

The corporate level of His new creation of the One New Man in Christ is portrayed several ways. Let’s focus on the Living Creature’s wings today. Ezekiel 1:9 tells us that the four living creatures’ wings touch one another as they move straight ahead without turning.

To understand the significance of the New Living Creature’s wings, we need to take a Hebrew peek. The most common and first occurrence of the word “wings” in Scripture is the Hebrew word kanaph (pronounced kaw-nawf’). Strong’s tells us that it’s an edge or extremity, specifically of a wing or an army. This definition really got my attention, because I had just come off a third-heaven group experience where the Great Shepherd (Yeshua) led an excursion to take captivity captive for a group of pastors where the Lord divinely imparted some spiritual equipment to each one of us for our journey: a golden Melchizedek breastplate with triple-concentric circles in the midst, a golden shepherd rod, and a set of wings. Significantly, He told me ahead of time that four people needed to be present for the type of thing that He wanted to accomplish. So when I saw the above definition for kanaph, I immediately received a greater revelation: Kanaph speaks of a precise wing of God’s end-time Melchizedek Army flying by the Spirit with one another.

Next, I flipped over to my Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary and looked up the definition for “wing”:

WING ~noun : one of the movable feathered or membranous paired appendages by means a creature is able to fly : power of flight : means of flight or rapid progress : a flank of an army : one of the offensive positions on either side of a center position (Christ) : a unit of the U.S. Air Force higher than a group and lower than a division : two or more squadrons of naval airplanes : a dance step marked by quick outward and inward rolling guide of one foot : insignia consisting of an outspread pair of stylized bird’s wings which are awarded on completion of prescribed training to a qualified pilot or aircrew member.

Then I dug even deeper by searching for revelation in the Ancient Hebrew Word Picture of the word kanaph. An Ancient Hebrew Word Picture is when you put the different pictures that the Hebrew letters represent together to understand a deeper meaning of a Hebrew word. BTW – I try not to not lean on my own understanding as I set a Hebrew Word Picture before the Lord in a meditative way. For example: Kanaph’s ancient Hebrew Word Picture looks like – כָּנָף. Let’s break the pictures of kaw-nawf’ down:

כָּ – pictograph of the Hebrew letter “kaf” is a wing or open hand that symbolizes 1) to allow 2) to cover 3) to open.

נָ – pictograph of the Hebrew letter “noon” is a fish darting through the water that symbolizes 1) action 2) life.

ף – pictograph of the Hebrew letter “pey” is a mouth. It symbolizes 1) to speak 2) to open 3) the beginning, like a river.

Having just studied the word “throne” in Scripture, I understood that the picture for “kaf” the wing meant a kingdom covering or being enthroned. Therefore, kanaph’s Ancient Hebrew Word Picture tells us several things: [1] Wings are the beginning of covered (enthroned, kingdom) life and action. [2] Wings speak of kingdom life and action as well as open things up to it. [3] Wings open things by speaking life.

When the wings of the Living Creature touch one another, it is a picture of a wing of God’s end-time Melchizedek Army touching the heart of a matter – or – in other words, a wing of royal priests hitting the bull’s eye of the Father’s perfect will. It portrays God’s Kingdom moving straight ahead when a group of Crucified Ones fly by the Spirit with one another according to His throne. It’s the place where His word goes forth and doesn’t return void, but accomplishes exactly what in the heart of the Father, here on earth as it is in heaven.

What do ya say? Shall we point some wings? Shall His royal priests open things to God’s kingdom life and action?! You betcha!!!

The Father’s Blood-Shot Eye Ascension

Eye - Universe-s-eye-eyes-20256308-500-363

“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints” (Ephesians 1:18 NASB).

Come and See.

Look. There’s a piece of white notebook paper tightly rolled up. We put one eye up to it and look through it, like a TELESCOPE. It’s a really skinny tunnel. Hear the word: “FOCUS.”

We hear the wind of the Spirit say: “I’m bringing you into the “cool” of the day. See a large red cape thrown over us that appears to be like a deep red stream that goes down and then swoops upward. It lands gently and is readily absorbed. It’s a peek-a-boo day. A surprise awaits from the Father – a delight from the Father’s hand. We feel excitement, joy, anticipation and the words “It’s ‘cool!’” from the Spirit. He is excited to deliver this surprise from the Father’s hand.

We see little munchkins dancing around preparing new spiritual technologies that are being released to us. There are miniscule red tiles that fit together, but they’re not in a set pattern. The tiles are dancing around, moving rapidly, moving by the Spirit. They flow like the wind.

Focus goes to one red tile. We move by the Spirit toward one red tile. It has a light red color around the edges and gets darker towards the center. We aim for the darker center. Now, we don’t even see the light red. We enter into the darker red part. We are sucked in willingly.

See each one of us free floating in the dark red. We sense great peace and rest. We are led to tell our souls: “It’s okay. You are okay.” Get the word “freedom.” This dark red place is an amazing place of DEEP REST. It causes so many natural things to be suspended. We become lighter with a sense of weightlessness. It’s a deep, deep weighty glory. NOTHING is too hard in this glory or for this glory. It feels like a gel around us.

See a gigantic finger – the finger of God – scoop us up out of the gel. We are all standing in one droplet of the deep red gel on top of His right index finger. We become ONE now. There is a sense that God is examining us and our purpose for being here. In the gel on His finger, it feels like there is a contact lens in some solution. The deep red tile is concave-shaped.

There is significance to our being on the tip of His finger. There is also a very large difference in size between Him and us. He puts us on like a contact lens in His eye. We sense that we are a magnifier. There’s a different view. It’s all about the view. It’s a two-way view. Both ways are magnified. We can see into Him, and out through His eye. Things that are far off are brought near. The things that we can never reach, the Holy Spirit is allowing us access to the Father. When we look out from this place we see things differently. It can magnify small things and make them large. We are not to despise small beginnings.

The contact lens is the “BLOODSHOT EYE” placed over the apple (i.e. pupil) of His eye. This is a magnified view of what it looks like when we are PERFECT. The contact lens magnifies both ways. His PERFECTIONS will be large and we will see easily. The “perfect” of the Father will be enlarged and will enlarge us.

THIS IS A DEEP MYSTERY OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD. IT’S THE “LET THERE BE” OF THE BLOOD. The Breastplate of Melchizedek has three concentric circles. It has an outermost ring the color of sapphire blue, a middle ring of blood red, and the innermost circle pure white. THE MELCHIZEDEK BREASTPLATE IS THE CONTACT LENS FOR THE FATHER’S EYE. IT’S THE FATHER’S BLOODSHOT EYE. Corporately, we are it! We are in that place. We were in the red stream due to His robe of righteousness; and then, He moved us into the CENTER OF THE DEEP RED WHERE WE HAVE DIRECT CONTACT WITH THE FATHER.

Hear: “IT’S ABOUT THE FREEDOMS IN THE DEEP RED.” The contact lens will continue to focus on the freedoms of the deep red, as a telescope. The contact will “tell” and give us “scope,” which is the view. The deep red scoop of His finger magnified TO KNOW HIM.

The look of the lens is one of love and creativity. It gives us magnified insight into what a person really needs from Him to connect (contact) via the seven-fold Spirits of God (Isaiah 11:2 NASB).

The Spirit is showing us how to CONNECT HIS HEAD TO HIS BODY. He is deliberately putting us on. RESTING IN THE FINISHED WORK OF THE CROSS IS THE DEEPEST RED. It felt like we were going in a tube to the back of His eye. We hit the optic nerve, so we can see. Understand that the optic nerve is at the back of an eye and sees according to the light hitting it. We are blood bought. THE TRUE LIGHT IS DEEP RED BLOOD. IT IS THE DEEPEST TRUTH OF LIGHT.

On His eye we have a new heavenly position. Together, as ONE, as a rod positioned horizontally, we move toward the back of His eye toward His optic nerve. Hear: “Catch the light.” See that we are illuminated. Believe that we are in the light (1 John 1:7). We are traveling very fast, yet not at all. The speed of light IS…

He turns His head to the left, as if to focus on something. We hear Him say: “See that you make all things to the pattern I’ve shown you.” The Bloodshot Eye had veins explode, and the blood scattered throughout His eye. The Bloodshot Eye is looking at the vessels that literally exploded out of its walls. When He turned to the left, He was looking at all nations and cultures. We, being blood bought, are being blood shot out of His eye to the four corners of the earth.
