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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Red Leap

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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