HEAVENLY ARMIES ON WHITE HORSES

bride-winter

Just prior to being told the heavenly armies on white horses following Yeshua are clothed in fine linen, clean and white, we see the Lamb’s wife clothed in fine linen, white and clean. Can they be the same? Notice that the fine linen is “clean and white” in Revelation 19:8 while in Revelation 19:14 it says the fine linen is “white and clean.” It’s a mirror image. Did you know that heaven is a mirror image of earth?

And can this also be connected to the picture in Scripture of the Bridegroom and Bride coming for the wise virgins? “Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to greet the Bridegroom and the Bride” (Matthew 25:1 Aramaic). Can the second coming of Jesus Christ come in two stages? First, the 144,000 spiritually pure bridal company are taken by God to be transfigured, like Enoch; and then the wise virgins? Selah.

By the way, I totally disagree with all rapture theory, which is escapism. There is no escapism in Scripture that I can find. The “rapture” is a rather recent theory, which was made up in 1830s by John Nelson Darby. When I say this, I am not eliminating the possibility (probability) of people being taken by God like Enoch was… but that is outside the doctrine of what I believe is the escapetology of the “rapture.” I get raptured every day when I ascend to be in and with Jesus Christ at the right hand of the Father (Ephesians 2:6).

The rapture theory all started with some visions given to Miss Margaret Macdonald where she saw that Christ is going to appear in two stages. I think what Miss Margaret saw was accurate, but not its interpretation. I believe that the 144,000 Bride made up of the children of Israel will be the first stage of the appearance of Christ. These 144,000 will be taken by God Himself, like Enoch, as the “firstfruits” of resurrection life (Revelation 14:4). At the second stage, the Bridegroom (Yeshua) and the Bride (144000) will come back for the wise virgins.

6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to Him: FOR THE MARRIAGE OF THE LAMB IS COME, AND HIS WIFE HATH MADE HERSELF READY.

8 AND TO HER WAS GRANTED THAT SHE SHOULD BE ARRAYED IN FINE LINEN, CLEAN AND WHITE: FOR THE FINE LINEN IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF SAINTS.

9 And he said unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself.

13 And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God.

14 AND THE ARMIES WHICH WERE IN HEAVEN FOLLOWED HIM UPON WHITE HORSES, CLOTHED IN FINEN LINEN, WHITE AND CLEAN.

15 And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations; and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

16 And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

THE BRIDE IS CLOTHED AS SHE WALKS

Bride Water Walk.jpg

The very first time that I was caught up in a corporate ascension, as the Bride of Christ, I saw an attic door open up early and Yeshua peeked down. He asked if I’d like to come up early. I hesitated; then I realized it was Him. Yeshua reached down, as I reached up. When we touched, I was immediately with Him in the Spirit.

Yeshua said, “Let’s wait here for the rest of them.” I looked around. We were on purple clouds and the stars above were bright. Yeshua sat cross-legged and invited me to do the same. Shortly, He exclaimed, “Come on!” as He took my hand and pulled me to my feet. We started to walk side-by-side; then He stepped in front as I followed. We walked and walked and walked and walked and walked and walked. We walked as Nancy Coen (the leader of the group) declared, “The window is open!”

I looked up, because a glaring brightness became visible in another layer of clouds above us. Yeshua led. I followed. As I climbed through the radiant opening, we were encompassed with light. Nothing else was visible. I remember knowing at the time that He and I had become one – the same essence.

As soon as I was aware of oneness, I saw myself plainly dressed in a white dressing room looking into a mirror. The door opened and in stepped Jesus. He presented me with a simple gold necklace. Yeshua said, “For purity,” as He raised the necklace up and asked me to turn around. I turned around and raised my hair. Yeshua hooked the gold necklace and promptly exited the dressing room.

When I saw a simple white undergarment above my head, I raised my arms to receive it. Then I waited for a while longer. Something inside of me prompted me to get up and open the dressing room door. I started to walk clothed only in my white camisole and gold necklace. As I walked, different pieces of my wedding dress flung unto me; my upper left sleeve, lower right sleeve, etc. My wedding dress was simple, but elegant. It was white and sparkled. Just as I reached out to grab the handle to this huge wooden door, the last piece, completing my ensemble, flung unto me. I was fully, properly, and gloriously clothed.

I opened the door and immediately saw myself at the left side of Yeshua, just as my wedding ring sits on my left hand. Yeshua and I were sitting at the banqueting table. I knew that there must have been a most sumptuous feast, but I truly didn’t care, for I only had eyes for Him. I was literally “lost” in His eyes. I had a vague recollection that there must be people in attendance, but I just could not take my eyes off of Him. Everything paled in comparison.

After a little while, Yeshua told me to stand. I did. Then He told me to take a bow. I replied, “You are the One that is supposed to bow. You do it all.” My Love repeated kindly, yet unwaveringly, “Bow, My dear. I want to honor My Bride.” I could not deny His easy request. As I simply and humbly bowed, the whole of heaven applauded. I was so overwhelmed. I remember that I looked at Him and He was all smiles. He was so magnificent and truly deserved all the glory and honor and praise. Yet,, here He was sharing it all.”

“ LORD, who may abide in Your Tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? He who walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart” (Psalm 15:1-2 NKJV).

“Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready. And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints” (Revelation 19.7-8 NKJV).

“But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked” (1 John 2.5-6 NKJV).

“Now it was the Feast of Dedication in Jerusalem, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the Temple, in Solomon’s Porch” (John 10.22-23 NKJV).

MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB

wedding-feast-2

Have you ever thought about the consummation of the ages – the Marriage Supper of the Lamb? Yeshua the Bridegroom and His beloved Bride married as one … feasting together.

All Biblical Feasts are important bridal markers and part of His eternal Word. Remember how a couple days ago, we contemplated how the spring feasts of the Lord speak of Jesus’ first coming. The fall feasts speak of Jesus’ second coming. Hanukkah and Purim are pictures of His Church becoming the Bride of Christ. We also saw that the primitive root to the word “feasts” in 2 Chronicles 8:13 is the Hebrew word ya-ad. Ya-ad is the term used for when Adam intimately knew Eve. This primitive ya-ad root literally implies that the Lord is summoning His people to meet Him at His stated time, He is directing us into a certain position, and He is engaging us for marriage. Question: If we don’t celebrate with the Lord at His appointed feasts, can we still marry Him? Please refer to https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2016/12/04/do-not-judge-about-holydays/.

Let’s focus on the two winter feasts portraying the Church’s journey to become His Bride. Hanukkah shows us a small ragtag group overcoming overwhelming odds to overthrow the Anti-Christ of their day while Purim displays the rightful queen of the land standing against the annihilation of her people – God’s people – for such a time as this.

These winter biblical feasts illustrate that becoming a precious part of God’s pure and spotless Bride doesn’t just automatically happen.

The parable of the Ten Virgins in Matthew 25 tells that us the gospel of the kingdom of heaven can be pictured as five wise virgins and five foolish ones. Please understand that these “virgins” are all believers.

The foolish virgins had the door shut on them, as the wise virgins went in to the marriage supper, because the wise ones had made themselves ready (Matthew 25:10-12). How did these blood-bought wise ones make themselves ready? The voice of many waters in Revelation 19 tells us: “And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, ‘Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.’ And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints Then He said to me, ‘Write: Blessed are those who are called to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb!’ And He said to me, ‘These are the true sayings of God’” (Revelation 19:6-9 NKJV).

Notice that it is the essence of the clothing – “the righteous acts of the saints” (i.e., righteousness) – that makes Lamb’s wife ready for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. The root meaning behind the Hebrew word for “righteousness” tells us that righteousness is a State of Being. Doing does not come before our State of Being, but our righteous acts are an outflow of who we truly are. Know that the Messiah’s Bride will resonate at the same frequency as her Beloved Bridegroom. Those things in our lives that are not plumb with God’s measuring line of righteousness (according to His Word) will cause us to resonate at a lower frequency than a pure and spotless one.

Notice that clothing is also the determining factor for the inappropriately dressed wedding guest that gets thrown out of the wedding banquet because of it: “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son …the wedding feast was filled with guests. But when the king came in to view the guests, he looked intently at a man there who had no wedding garment. And he said, Friend, how did you come in here without putting on the [appropriate] wedding garment? And he was speechless (muzzled, gagged). Then the king said to the attendants, Tie him hand and foot, and throw him into the darkness outside; there will be weeping and grinding of teeth. For many are called (invited and summoned), but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:1, 10-13 AMP). Notice that the king calls this wedding guest “friend,” which means that he is a believer. For more on this subject, see https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2012/12/31/here-comes-the-bride-part-3/.

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb is the twelfth and final stage of a Jewish Wedding. It’s for all guests invited by the Father of the Bride who are appropriately dressed.

MANY CALLED TO BE THE BRIDE, BUT FEW CHOSE

bride-door

“Come hither, I will show thee the Bride, the Lamb’s wife” (Revelation 21:9). Notice the holy city coming down out from God out of heaven – the New Jerusalem – is also referred to as the Lamb’s wife as well as the Bride in verse 9. There are several concepts in Revelation chapter 21 connected to the Bride, the Lamb’s wife:

• A new heaven and a new earth appears because the first heaven and first earth passed away (Revelation 21:1).

• The New Jerusalem is the holy city coming down from God out of heaven prepared as a Bride adorned for her husband (Revelation 21:2)

• The New Jerusalem is the Tabernacle of God with men where He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people (Rev 21:3).

• The One who sits upon the Throne declares: Behold, I make all things new (Revelation 21:5).

• The beginning and end [i.e., the Almighty] will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to those who thirst [for righteousness] (Revelation 21:6)

• The Bride is made up of sons who are overcomers. These are the ones who shall inherit all things (Revelation 21:7).

Let’s look at this last point a little deeper. Sons of the Living God who are led by the Spirit of God make up the Lamb’s Wife, His Bride (Romans 8:14; Revelation 21:7). When a Corporate Ascension Group I belonged to for 4 years kept on receiving divine encounters about the Order of Melchizedek and the Bride of Christ almost simultaneously, I dug-in to seek Him. I asked the Lord things like: Is the Bride and the Order of Melchizedek the same? How does this work? After months of sincerely seeking Him, I receive a one-liner: “The Order of Melchizedek precedes [prepares] the Bride.” That, plus some biblical research and some more divine encounters, is why you will hear me say these days that the kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek must prepare their own inner fire bride.

Christianity at large has been misled. Many believe that the entire church is the Bride of Christ, which they pull from Ephesians 5:25-27; but this is simply not the case. Notice that it is only the glorious ekklesia (congregation of the Living God) who has allowed Christ to sanctify and cleanse them with the washing of water by the word that He will present to Himself. Everyone who has accepted the precious gift of Yeshua’s death, burial and resurrection are called to become part of Christ’s glorious church. All who accept Christ’s gift of salvation are called, but few chose to do what it takes to become part of His Bride. “For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14).

WHAT DO YOU SEE? GOD’S WORD FULFILLED

Light - Minnesota Bride Fashion FW 1

“The word of the LORD came to me: “What do you see Jeremiah? I see the branch of an almond tree,” I replied. The LORD said to me, “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.”(Jeremiah 1:11-12).

The word for almond tree in Hebrew sounds like the Hebrew word for watching. The delicate pink blossoms of the almond tree hail a first fruit in Israel. Its first tree fruit is also its seed. An almond seed is technically a kernel, which is the central or important part of a subject, plan, or problem. Also, know that the Hebrews see the almond tree as symbolic of the Tree of Life.

Almonds are associated with the Temple Menorah (Candlestick) of Exodus 25 fame. The cups of its seven lamps were shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms. Full almond blossoms symbolize life blooming while the almond buds symbolize the hope of new or renewed life. When things look dark and wintry do not despair, it is only a season for spring is near. Thank God the almond tree is the first one to bloom in Jerusalem in the spring of the year!

TODAY IS THE DAY TO STEP INTO HIS WINTER ONE-DEAR-LAND TO EXPERIENCE THE LIGHT, LOVE AND LIFE OF THE WORLD COMING TO YOU IN A ONE-DEAR-FULL NEW WAY TO SEE THAT HIS WORD IS FULFILLED. Not only is Chanukah called the Feast of Miracles, but also the Feast of Lights. His finger is touching the most important parts in your life, whether they be plans or problems. Cast your cares on Him, and see Yah work with your eyes of faith.

The seven branches of God’s Light in His Temple are connected to the seven Spirits of God. The Light of His Manifest Presence is watching over His word to see that it is fulfilled. All that is given through the marvelous gift of the seven Spirits of God is designed to bring the Bride into a place where she is without spot or wrinkle.

The seven Spirit of God was the seven-fold nature of Christ, which Yeshua (Jesus) walked in here on earth: the Spirit of the Lord, the Spirit of Wisdom, the Spirit of Understanding, the Spirit of Counsel, the Spirit of Might, the Spirit of Knowledge, and the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord (Isaiah 11:1-2). Heaven’s will and the Seven Spirits of God enabled Yeshua to fulfill His high and holy calling, and so this will be for those of the Order of Melchizedek and of the Bride.

If one sees these lamps burning before His throne (Rev 4:5), they are the seven colors that make up the components of light. Condensed this spectrum of color is the substance of light. Yah’s command “let there be light” set the spiritual foundation of our earth, which is the Father’s love manifest in the seven-fold nature of Christ, and in Christ, all the protoplasm of the universe holds together. See http://wp.me/p2k1dQ-kE .

The seven Spirits of God are part of the government of God – His ruling and reigning Kingdom – and they are resident in mature saints who bring increase of His government of peace and righteousness (Isaiah 9:7). Believers who mature into their royal priesthood function will have Christ’s Being lived out through them by means of the seven Spirits of God. These Spirits will promote God’s administrated will or government on earth through His end-time Royal Priesthood. Anyone who wills to do so can have this place in Him. The operation of the seven Spirits of God enables revelation to flow unabated in the Priesthood of the Order of Melchizedek. This revelation reveals the deep, secret and hidden truths of God’s Kingdom, life in the Spirit, and God’s plans and purposes found in Christ.

CHANUKAH DEVOTION FOR NIGHT 6:

The measure of light in every man is connected to “let there be light.” When a way is created for the Lord of Love to fill us and take ownership of our faculties, His divine life becomes our own life and animation. Yah will move heaven and earth to help someone who is singularly focused with all their heart, soul and strength on Him. Those who chose to die daily to the world to go deeper into Him will. If you are a slave to the world system, you’re not going to rule it. The call is high, and so is the price. He is God, and He knows what it’s going to take to get the world out of each one of us.

The Messiah’s royal priests will be willing to have the world removed from their souls to gain the seven Spirits of God, so they can rule and reign throughout the earth with the King. These seven Spirits of God, which are depicted as lamps burning before His throne, make up the components of light. The various colors representing the seven Spirits of God are:

[1] Red – the Spirit of the Lord (love, life, etc).
[2] Amber – the Spirit of Wisdom
[3] Yellow – the Spirit of Understanding
[4] Turquoise/Green – The Spirit of Counsel
[5] Light Blue – the Spirit of Might (Power)
[6] Indigo – the Spirit of Knowledge
[7[ Violet – the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord

Condensed this spectrum of color is the substance of light. Yah’s command “let there be light” set the spiritual foundation of our earth, which is the Father’s love manifest in the seven-fold nature of Christ, and in Christ, all the protoplasm of the universe holds together.

DISCUSSION: Please select how you’d like to involve others (there’s freedom to do whatever the Spirit leads):

[1] What is something you’d like to see Yah fulfill in your life?

[2] Which one of the seven Spirits of God do you gravitate towards the most?

BAPTISM OF FIRE

Flame - 2 Matches
One of the DEEP RED mysteries of God’s Kingdom being revealed in our day has to do with the BAPTISM OF FIRE, which will refine His Bride into a pure and spotless state. When we discuss RIGHTEOUSNESS, many times we will be jumping back and forth from the Messiah’s Bride – who is made ready by being clothed in righteousness – to the Order of Melchizedek, which personifies the King of Righteousness and Peace.

Yesterday, we discussed that the Melchizedek birds of a feather that are now flocking together only glory in the cross of Yeshua Ha Machiach (Jesus Christ). The cross was Yeshua’s third and final baptism – His Baptism of Fire (Matthew 3:11).

Please bear with me as I lay a little ground work. Divine series of three in Scripture are keys for the hour that we live in. When you see three items listed in your Bible, sit up and take notice. Biblical threes list things from easiest to hardest; but more importantly, they reveal the way of life that propels us toward maturity. I prefer to use the phrase “move onto perfection” (Hebrews 6:1) to the word “maturity.” Divine threes are typically progressive in nature with one building on what was previously gained or attained. Usually these steps that move us unto perfection also overlap (where God can be working on two or three different levels within us at the same time, since parts of any one of us can be more mature than others). Yeshua’s three baptisms articulated in Matthew 3:11 is a good example. Being baptized by water is easier, and usually precedes, being baptized by the Holy Spirit, which is definitely easier than being baptized by fire by going to a cross.

Mark 9:49 NKJV says: “For everyone will be seasoned with fire.” Everyone? Everyone. Each person who desires to be part of the Order of Melchizedek and the Bride of the Messiah must walk where He walked, even to the utmost crucifixion of our flesh.

I sought the Lord for years asking Him: How is a person clothed in righteousness as Your Bride? As I was studying the word “throne” in Scripture a couple years ago, Jeremiah 33:18 struck me like a bolt of lightning. He showed me that the way of being enthroned or clothed in righteousness was progressive crucifixion steps, which are the spiritual sacrifices still required of God’s Holy Priesthood (1 Peter 2:5). This is the process by which we will actually hit the Father’s bull’s eye of righteousness.

The moving unto perfection crucifixion process outlined in Jeremiah 33:18 will completely circumcise our carnal nature. Remember our Savior needs our permission to crucify our sin nature. Once we have endure the cross and our flesh has been mortified, Yeshua purges one’s soul with fire to at last make our soul His permanent dwelling place. Hebrews 10:39 says it like this “have faith to the possessing of the soul.”

Behold, an awesome treasure of the DEEP RED mystery of His Kingdom: Crucified (mature) sons will return to their primordial position:

[1] Body – Clothed in righteousness.

[2] Soul – Completely filled with the “shekinah” glory of God where it’s the permanent Dwelling Place of God (NOTE: “shekinah” in Hebrew means “to dwell”).

[3] Spirit – Continually in constant communion with their Creator.

Once a soul endures the cross to the point of purification – the All-Consuming Fire purging – he or she is clothed or enthroned in righteousness. Stay tuned. Tomorrow, we will begin to go into the steps for the Bride’s Baptism of Fire outlined in Jeremiah 33:18.

Kingdom New Wine – GENU-WINE (PART 1)

Wine White Sunset

The Lord’s GENU-WINE is the new wine in these last days.

“This is My blood of covenant, which is poured out for many… I tell the truth, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it anew in the Kingdom of God” (Mark 14:24-25 NIV).

In this Kingdom Day, a sign of His coming is first the water then the wine, like when the spear pierced Yeshua’s side on the cross. In brokenness, His living water is being poured out through His Bride from His side.

His water is being turned into wine in this third day (John 2:1). We must each be washed, cleansed, and filled to the brim with the living water, just as the ceremonial water jars were at the wedding feast at Cana in Galilee. As His servants, we are to do whatever the Lord tells us (John 2:5), then He will draw us out so we can be taken to the Master of the Wedding Banquet and His people. The Master is calling the Bridegroom aside, for He has indeed saved the best for last. “Thus He revealed His glory, and His disciples put their faith in Him” (John 2:11).

“This is the new covenant in My blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of Me” (1 Corinthians 11:25). Remember Him. Re-member Him. Re-member His Body. Let’s put His Body back together again.

His Divine Building Plan in the Dispensation of the Fullness of Time – 2 of 3

— Becoming a Burnt Offering —

We previously discussed that in the fresh dispensation that has dawned in our day, the Lord our God is causing us to want to be just like Jesus (Yeshua) so we can all be made ONE. Devout hearts everywhere divinely desire to walk in the same manner as Jesus did (1 John 2:6), including following Him in being baptized with water, the Holy Spirit and fire (Matt 3:11).

Divine series of three and seven in Scripture are keys for the hour that we live in. We will focus on the series of three in the Bible. When you see three items listed, sit up and take notice. Biblical threes list things from easiest to hardest; but more importantly, they reveal the way of life that propels us toward maturity (Psalms 16:11; John 14:6). I prefer to use the phrase “move onto perfection” (Hebrews 6:1) to the word “maturity.” Divine threes are typically progressive in nature with one building on what was previously gained or attained. Usually these steps that move us unto perfection also overlap where God can be working on two or three different levels within us at the same time, since parts of any one of us can be more mature than others. Yeshua’s three baptisms articulated in Matthew 3:11 is a good example. Being baptized by water is easier, and usually precedes, being baptized by the Holy Ghost, which is definitely easier than being baptized by fire by going to a cross.

Let’s immediately discuss exceptions for this rule. Take Cornelius for instance, the Holy Spirit fell on him and his household as Peter spoke to them prior to them being baptized with water (Acts 10:44-48). Let’s just keep open to the fact that God is large and in charge and can do whatever He likes. Granted, the Peter-Cornelius event was an extraordinary precedent-setting moment for the new dispensation of the Fullness of Time (Gal 4:4-5) around two thousand years ago when Jesus was crucified for the sins of the world so the door of faith could be opened to the Gentiles. In the first century, the Jewish paradigm of preaching to all nations made a divine seismic shift to begin to accomplish the Great Commission. Today, another earth-shattering shift on how people relate to one another has already begun to take place, and like in the first century, believers will probably be astonished, surprised, uneasy, anxious, uncomfortable and possibly even perturbed about the changes God will require us to make. According to providence, the One New Man in the Messiah and His Bride will come forth.

Let’s review some examples of divine series of three, so we can see more clearly what I’m talking about:

[1]  You shall love the LORD your God with all your:  (1) heart,  (2) soul, and  (3) strength (Deuteronomy 6:5).

[2]  Abide these three, but the greatest of these is love:  (1) faith,  (2) hope, and  (3) love  (1 Corinthians 13:13).

[3]  May the God of peace sanctify you entirely, so you may be preserved complete without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:  (1) spirit,  (2) soul, and  (3) body  (1 Thessalonians 5:23).

[4]  Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is:  (1) good,  (2) acceptable (or pleasing),  (3) perfect  (Romans 12:2).

[5]  You are a slave to the one you obey:  (1) obedience to His divine will,  (2) results in righteousness,  (3) which results in holiness  (Romans 6:16-19).

[6]  Baptism of:  (1) water,  (2) the Holy Spirit, and  (3) fire  (Matthew 3:11).

[7]  Another example of a divine series of three that’s not contained within one Bible verse, like Romans 6:16-19, but this time a person must have a greater understanding of the totality of Scripture:  (1) Baptized by water = See the Kingdom of God(John 3:3),  (2)        Baptized by the Holy Spirit = enter the Kingdom of God (John 3:5),  (3) Baptized by fire = inherit the Kingdom of God  (1 Corinthians15:50; Galatians 5:19-21).

[8]  The Levitical priests shall never lack a man before Me:  (1) to offer burnt offerings,  (2) to burn grain offerings, and  (3) to prepare sacrifices continually (Jeremiah 33:18).

BECOMING A BURNT OFFERING

Since the Biblical pattern for each new dispensation is first a precious son volunteers to become a worshipful Burnt Offering before a new dwelling place for God is built, it will behoove us to look further into what does it mean for one to sacrificially offer oneself as a Burnt Offering as well as what does it mean to be a precious son. In this article, we will explore the Burnt Offering that the believers must go through to begin to their journey of moving unto perfection. Our next article will search out what it means to be a precious or mature son.

The first depiction of a fire offering in God’s Word is the picture of a Burnt Offering presented in Leviticus 1. It is the first step believers will have to pass through in their Baptism of Fire. (We will discuss later the other two steps required in our personal as well as corporate immersion in His Baptism of Fire, which will enable His Bride to be prepared by clothing her with righteousness (Rev 21:7-8). For now, please note that this is merely the first stride all believers must undergo to move from the believers’ portion to the sons’ portion to the bride’s portion.) Yeshua perfectly fulfilled the Leviticus 1 image on the cross, but always keep before you that devout hearts will walk in the same way with some divine adjustments in our Kingdom day.

When Jesus walked the earth, He was Jewish and His understanding of the Baptism of Fire, which He experienced at His crucifixion, came from the picture of Burnt Offering in the first five books of the Bible. It would behoove us Christians to start with the same foundation. They were the instructions of Moses on the priests, the altars, and the sacrificial system, which (by the way) is accurate according to the Messiah’s instructions:
“For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” (John 5:46-47 NASB).

The Bible teaches that there’s no sacrifice for intentional sin that can be brought by man. However, the Bible also teaches us that, before the Law was given to Moses by the finger of God, if God brings a lamb for you, it will cover all your intentional sins and cause you to pass from death to life. It’s called the Lamb of God sacrifice and was foreshadowed via Abraham and Isaac on Mount Moriah. We need to understand that it’s because of the commandments about priests and sacrifices and altars that we can have any confidence that Yeshua’s sacrifice on the cross is able to cover our sins before a Holy Living God. This is an important basic instruction to our faith.

The Spirit and the Bride says, “Come.” Come. Let’s dive deeper into the ancient Hebraic understanding of the Burnt Offering to mine the riches of our inheritance. The Hebraic root of the word offering means “coming near,” so any type of offering was, and is, meant to bring oneself closer to God. The Hebrew word for “burnt” is olah, which literally means going up. Therefore, it was understood when one sincerely offers themselves or anything dear to themselves to the Lord for the purpose of drawing close to God, they spiritually go up to meet with the God of grace personally (Heb 4:16). By the way, any Burnt Offering was given exclusively to the LORD, and is considered to be a pleasing fragrance to God.

The Burnt Offering is also called by another name – the Elevation Offering. As it names suggests, it raises one’s spiritual level. The Elevation Offering was brought by everyone who went up to Jerusalem for the three pilgrimage feasts of the Lord. These pilgrimage feasts are also called “feasts forever.”[1] The Hebrew prophets spoke that in the end times all the nations will be coming to Jerusalem – going up physically or spiritually – and they will take part in building the temple.

The Burnt Offering was considered to be superior to all others, because it was a voluntary sacrifice and it was offered in its entirety by fire. When a person brought his burnt offering to the priests, they were required to lay both of their hands on the animal’s head, and then, confess their sins or shortcomings. By the way, leaning with both hands on one’s sacrifice alludes to leaning on the Lord through loving Him with all your strength – the highest (kingdom) form of love. (Please refer to the “Here Comes the Bride” article).

Perhaps one of the most significant realities of the Burnt Offering is unveiled when you break down the three Hebrew letters for olah. The mystery revealed is: a true olah (Burnt Offering) is that which the Shepherd brings forth. It’s such an incredible picture, because if you were going to make a burnt offering, you’d have to go to the shepherd of the flock first to get your lamb, goat, bull, et cetera. Basically, you’d ask the shepherd, “Select the best one for me,” and he’d make the judgment as to what’s best for you.

In this Kingdom Day, the Great Shepherd of our souls (John 10:11) will guide us to the best path that each one of us needs to take to become just like Him. He will sit on His blazing throne (Daniel 7:9) and judge everything in our life – or – as Hebrews 12 states it: He will shake everything that is not of Him so only His Kingdom without and within you remains. Please note that the foundation and habitation of God’s throne is righteousness and justice (Psalms 9:7; 11:4; 45:6; 89:14; 97:2; Proverbs 25:5; 29:14). Therefore, for the heavenly-minded, His just judgments in our lives will really be sweeter than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb (Psalms 19:10). Press into the fact that His righteous assessments of our lives will also be more desirable than fine gold.

Let’s sum up some ancient ways that are still true today:

[1] God’s people, who are initiated into His royal priesthood, His holy  nation, through their genuine reception of the shed blood of the Lamb of God, receive forgiveness for their shortcomings once they sincerely confess their sin.

[2] We bypass animal sacrifices because Jesus Christ offered up the perfect sacrifice of His earthly body once for all (Hebrews 9:12).

[3] The ultimate spiritual principle behind the Burnt Offering, which will remain steadfast forever is: “Behold, I have come to do thy will” (Psalms 40:7-8; Hebrews 10:7).

[4] Yeshua became our Burnt Offering on the cross, and His Bride will be like Him for the purpose of the redemption of The Body (the death, burial and resurrection of a Body of Believers who make up the One New Man in Christ). This is an individual as well as a corporate work. It’s the great quickening happening now in our day.

[5] The fulfillment of the picture of the Burnt Offering in our fresh dispensation is the Baptism of Fire (i.e., crucified life; Galatians 2:20) that the mature sons of God must choose to voluntarily go through to be part of the Lamb’s pure and spotless Bride. Remember, we don’t get to choose what we will offer as a Burnt Offering. It’s  Yeshua – the Great Shepherd who’s in the midst of God’s Kingdom (Revelation 7:17) – who chooses for us what our Elevation Offering will be, so every member of His Bride can resonate at the exact same frequency as our heavenly Bridegroom – the Word of God. By the way, those souls that are not totally sold-out will be open to the greatest deception that this world has ever seen.

[6] Bridal lovers as well as mature sons of God must lay everything we have been taught and everything we have known on His altar (ourselves in our entirety); and then, by His Spirit and His Truth (2 Timothy 3:16) we must sift through every thing in order to recognize what practices and beliefs actually please God, and which do not.

  • “There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” (Proverbs 14:12 NASB)
  • “It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profits nothing : the words I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life” (John 6:63 KJV)
  • My soul cleaveth unto the dust : quicken thou me according to thy word” (Psalm 119:25 KJV).

[1] The three pilgrimage feasts of the Lord: Passover (Pesach), Pentecost (Shavuot) and Tabernacles (Sukkot).

His Divine Building Plan in the Dispensation of the Fullness of Time – 1 of 3

— The Biblical Pattern for a Global Shift in the Divine Order of Earthly Things–

A radically new dispensation has arrived upon the scene of human history every two thousand years since the dawn of time. Don’t let the word dispensation trip you up, because it simply means an administrative system. When the One who is sovereign initiates a new dispensation, God reforms how He manages and runs things on earth.

For several years now, the whole world has become engulfed in an atmospheric (spiritual) climate of change. Simply look and see words like “kingdom,” “shift,” and “change” are in the air. Please realize that the promises that have regulated human affairs for the past two thousand years are not going away, but shifting by a quark or two in order to prepare God’s people for our coming King. God is in charge of this and any shift in the divine order of earthly things, and it affects everything we do and who we are. It literally is a new state of being in Christ. This new state of being will result in the gathering together in one all things in Christ (Ephesians 1:10) – which in a word is One(ness). This fresh new order carries with it a pristine DNA for a new creature, which will produce a new prototype.

The purpose of this divine global shift in earth’s administration is to make adjustments so His resurrected body of believers and His pure and spotless bridal company can come into their fullness.  We have entered a season where an elemental change is occurring so that a corporate body will be prepared for Him (Hebrews 10:5). This new thing – a manifestation of the perfect multi-membered resurrection of Christ’s body – will inaugurate the Age of the Bride of Christ (Revelation 19:7-8) and the Age of the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:1-10) and the Age of the One New Man in the Messiah (Ephesians 2:15) – these three being one as diverse aspects of the same consummation. Please don’t get hung up on gender-specific terms; both men and women are called to be part of the One New Man and the Bride.

The Biblical pattern for each new dispensation is first a precious son volunteers to become a worshipful, sacrificial burnt offering; then gradually a new dwelling place for God is built. Just know that the Creator of our universe started with something wholly natural, but eventually His divine building pattern will culminate in something entirely spiritual.

“The spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual … Just as we have borne the image of the earthly, we will bear the image of the heavenly … flesh and blood can not inherit the Kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 15:46, 49-50 NASB).

Let’s take a closer look at times in the Bible when a precious son volunteers to become a pleasing sacrifice. Notice that each one of the participants is an example of those who volunteer freely in the day of God’s power (Psalms 110:3). They literally present themselves as a Burnt Offering by fire.

The first example presented to us is Abraham and Isaac in Genesis 22. Some facts hidden in Jewish history about Abraham will help better illuminate our burnt offering picture.

Before Abram became Abraham, he originally shared the idolatrous practices of his father, Terah, who manufactured and sold actual graven images (idols). At the tender age of 13, Abram was personally convicted by the Most High God to cast off all foreign gods, so he smashed all of his father’s idols. Terah was furious, because he had lost a lot of things including time, energy and money; therefore, Terah took his case to the pre-eminent rebel of his time who was the first earthly king – Nimrod. Nimrod, being a law unto himself and the flesh, ruled that Abram was guilty. He had the “defiant” Abram thrown into a fiery furnace. What’s astonishing is that Abram miraculous survived his very close and personal baptism of fire long before Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego (Daniel 3).

We then see God’s heart response to Abram’s sincere belief and his obedience in coming out of Babylon by forging a unilateral covenant of faith with him as a prototype for all who believe. The unilateral covenant where Abram was saved through faith by grace was, and is, only dependent on God’s faithfulness (Gen 15). Notice that Abram was asleep when God made His covenant with him. Significantly, God appeared as a flaming torch which passed between Abram’s five split offerings. The number “”five” in Scripture speaks of divine favor and grace.

Always pay attention to the first occurrence of any thing in the Bible, because it sets precedence. Therefore, the first account of a son volunteering to be a sacrifice is when God asked Abraham to take his only son up to Mount Moriah and offer him there as a burnt offering as a voluntary act of worship (Genesis 22). Many of us think back to when we were taught this in Sunday School, and picture Abraham running the show and Isaac being a small boy who unconditionally trusted his father; but Hebrew history records that Abraham was 137-years-old and Isaac was 36 at the time. Knowing their more advanced age brings better clarity on how both participants – both Abraham and Isaac – truly volunteered freely. When Abraham and Isaac willingly ascended Mount Moriah, Abraham (the father) carried the fire and Isaac (his son) carried the wood for the burnt offering on his back. This was a Messianic foreshadow of an unprecedented event fulfilled around two-thousand years later by Jesus and His own Heavenly Father. Abraham built an altar there onMount Moriah, arranged the wood, and placed his only begotten son on top of the wood. When Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his son, an angel stopped him at the last moment.

Known as the “akedah” in Hebrew, this was the final test of Abraham’s faith. James chapter 2 says that Abraham’s “faith was working with his works, and as a result of the works, faith was perfected,[ i.e. completed]. And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, ‘AND ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS’ (James 2:22-23 NASB). Abraham’s persevered in his faith in God and moved into a more mature state of holding to the testimony of God (Rev 12:17; 14:12). The truth of the matter is if you believe in something, then you will naturally act on that belief and do those things which are consistent with what you believe. Otherwise, your words won’t line up with what you do and you will be known as a hypocrite.

After the akedah, there were several iterations of God’s dwelling place that were built, with one version overlapping the next precious son volunteering to be a sacrifice:

[1]   Wilderness Tabernacle (Built by Moses) – Portable earthly image that served as a copy and shadow of heavenly things to come (Exo 25:40; Heb 8:5)

[2]   Solomon’sTemple (Built by King David’s son)

[3]   Herod’s Temple (Built by an apostate king)

The next Biblical precedence of a precious son volunteering to become a burnt offering is Jesus (i.e., Yeshua). With Yeshua’s death, burial, and resurrection a great slide from the natural toward the supernatural began. Even though there was a new beginning inaugurated at the cross to facilitate a transformation of God’s temple, historically, there was a gradual turning so God’s people could transition into the new dispensation. The dispensation begun by Jesus’s baptism of fire (Matthew 3:11) – his crucifixion – was:

“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” (Galatians 4:4-5 NIV).

The promise of the new dispensation inaugurated at the cross was, and still is, the adoption of sons (i.e. restoration of fellowship). This promise was the first great quickening (Romans 8:11; Ephesians 2:5). It’s an eternal promise; therefore, it will continue. Right now, we have a fresh dispensation dawning, which encompasses and expands on everything that has gone before it.

“that in the dispensation of the fullness of time 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 NIV).

The new dispensation in our day speaks of gathering together in one all things in Christ. It should be another quantum leap in the spiritual direction, which should result in something enveloped by something completely heavenly. Something like: a holy city, the Lamb’s (Bridegroom’s) wife, the Bride, New Jerusalem “coming down from God out of heaven” (Revelation 21:2). Something like: the mature HEAD of Christ (Revelation 1:14) spiritually being joined to His mature BODY of believers (Ephesians 4:15-16; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27). What I do know is that in this fresh dispensation, God is causing us to hunger and thirst for righteousness (Matthew 5:6) as well as hating mixture (Revelation 3:15-16). He is causing us to want to be just like Jesus. To move just like Him. To live just like Him. To be just like Him. In order to do this, we will have to diligently and consistently choose to walk in the same manner that Jesus did (1 John 2:6).
