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.

TAKING ON COMMON UNION – Part 5

WING OF ROYAL PRIESTS FLYING BY THE SPIRIT

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!!!
