FILLING UP THE AFFLICTIONS OF CHRIST FOR HIS BODY

cross circles

Does Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) once for all sacrifice negate our need to do anything? There seems to be quite a bit of confusion around this issue these days.

While we never minimize or replace Yeshua’s sacrifice on the cross, we also don’t overlook the oneness process required to enter the full stature of the crimson flow. Ephesians 4:15 tells us that it is necessary for the Mature Body of Christ to grow up into Him in all things right after revealing the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ in Ephesians 4:13. The Corporate One New Man in Christ will accurately display to all the world the fullness of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ the same way that all fullness dwelt in Yeshua through the blood of the cross: “He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn of the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven” (Colossians 1:18-20 NASB).

We must not overlook key components of Scripture. Scriptures like Matthew 16:24 where Yeshua shows His disciples the way of oneness with Him requires a crucified life: “If anyone wished to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me” (Matthew 16:24 NASB). It’s noteworthy that Luke 9:23 repeats this message by adding the concept of a lifestyle of daily crucifixion “And He was saying to them all, ‘If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me” (Luke 9:23 NASB).

Experience reveals that nothing better develops Christ’s Character within us like sufferings and tribulations. “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;  but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy” (1 Peter 4:12-13 NKJV). As we offer our sufferings and sacrifices to Him, we are crucified in union with Christ in an ever-increasing greater measure, so we can live by the faith of the Son of God (Galatians 2:20).

Colossians 1:24 blows to pieces the concept that Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) once for all sacrifice negate our need to do anything. The Apostle Paul tells us: “Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I do my share on behalf of His body, which is the church, in filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions… fully carry out the preaching of the word of God” (Colossians 1:24-25 NASB). Wow! Did you get that?! Each member of His Body must fill up the afflictions of Christ in their flesh for His Body’s sake to fulfill the word of God.

This is a massive key component to Yeshua’s Mature Head attaching to His Mature Body (Daniel 7:9; Revelation 1:14). The fully mature Head of Messiah Yeshua connecting to His fully mature Body is the undifferentiated, indistinguishable state of the Messiah. This is THE PERFECT MAN: “Until we all become one in faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, and become a perfect man according to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13 Lamsa’s Aramaic).

 Give em heaven!!!

RECEIVING A COMMISSION INTO THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK

Melchizedek Commissioning

I asked Abba: “When does Your commissioning for the Melchizedek Army begin?” He told me: “When people enter the Kingdom of God”: “Jesus answered, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is BORN OF WATER AND THE SPIRIT, he cannot ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD (John 3:5 NKJV). So it’s when people are born of water and the Spirit that we first are commissioned into His royal priesthood.

Know that the Order of Melchizedek is the highest spiritual order on earth that manifests heaven – making the kingdoms of this earth, the kingdoms of our God (Rev 11:15). Scripturally, when we are born-again, we merely SEE the Kingdom of God (See John 3:3) and are immature sons at this point. According to John 3:5 when we are born of water and the Spirit, we ENTER the kingdom of God. It is during this step that Manifested Sons or the Maturing Sons are produced. This is where the New Living Creature of the One New Man in the Messiah who is a wing of His Melchizedek Army takes shape. To INHERIT the Kingdom of God, Galatians 5:19-21 and 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 tells us the works of flesh that do not allow us to inherit the Kingdom of God. This is where Mature or Maturing Sons become His Pure & Spotless Bride.

After Abba told me that people begin their commissioning in His Melchizedek Army, He told me that it is at the military level of “general” that Yeshua (as the High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek) personally commissions them. It is His non-revocable stamp of approval making His Generals of Melchizedek known to all of heaven and earth. A facebook friend confirmed this and I think her thoughts on the matter are divine: The significant difference between the two (already being commissioned and needing to be commissioned by Yeshua Himself) is when you have become a general (which is operating in the fullness and authority of that which the Almighty would have us operate after extreme death to self has been accomplished), He will promote people individually by putting His non-revocable stamp of approval on them. This non-revocable General of Melchizedek stamp makes known in all of heaven and earth those who carry a personal commissioning from Him and the extreme authority in Him that goes with it. Their extreme authority is due to them understanding their identity in Christ; therefore, they have become a-force-to-be-recon-with the personal approval by God Himself. Many are called few chosen.

One thing that I am very clear on is that we must conquer and dethrone our own Babylonian kings, which is a demarcation line for when we can expect Yeshua to come to us and personally commission us (Gen 14:17-20). Please refer to OVERCOMING BABYLONIAN KINGS – https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=634222986650199&set=a.436008649804968.101323.4 for more information.

I am also very clear that it has to do with the FULLNESS OF CHRIST: “till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the FULLNESS OF CHRIST” (Eph 4:13 NKJV). This is due to the “tenth of all” reference in Genesis 14:20. If you have not read both of these short articles, please do because they begin to explain the FULLNESS OF CHRIST CONNECTION TO THE TENTH OF ALL:

FULLNESS DEPOSIT => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2013/08/21/fullness-deposit/

FULLNESS IS A 10 % DEPOSIT UNTIL… => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2013/09/29/fullness-is-a-10-percent-deposit-until/

As I was driving down to conference where I was teaching on “righteousness,” Yeshua prompted me to ask: “How much of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ do I have? I heard a percentage that was much lower than I expected. First though, we must be more immature that we know. Second, thought was to ask more questions.

Q: How much of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ do Your people start with? A: 10% deposit.

Q: How much of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ do most Christians have? A: 10%. Follow-up Q: “They never grow in the fullness of Christ?” A: “That is correct.”

I was going to a conference for those advancing in the Kingdom of God, so I asked… Q: What is the average of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ for individuals at this conference? A: 25-45%.

To be fair, I believe that a portion of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ is measured corporately, but talk about an eye-opening question to ask oneself. I think it is very important to not compare, but use it as a tool to help yourself to press in even more into the goal of the high calling off God in Christ Jesus.

7 SPIRITS OF GOD IN YOUR MIDST

rainbow-waterfall

There’s a misty, hidden place in the spiritual realm where “no man” has gone before. No Man’s Land is a space where people continually (daily) yield to the crucifixion process, which enables their Kingdom of Self to disappear and the Kingdom of God appear in your midst.

This is one of the places that water flows to earth from heaven. A higher level of Ascension in Christ is necessary to go through this hidden portal. A particular creative breath of God has been given for such a time as this to come into another level of the seven Spirits of God in the midst of you. There is a higher technology to the seven Spirits of God. It’s time to purposely engage these governors and tutors through resting in Him. It’s time to submit to 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 11:2) in your inmost part, which will bring you into the fullness of what these seven Spirits of God carry. Accept each one, and rise up in them to come into fullness of Christ in your soul.

MYSTERIES OF THE DEEP RED

Red Dress Pensive

In this Kingdom Day, it’s a time for the transformation of birds of a feather that flock together. Right now, there is Company of Eagles of His Strategic Air Command being released in the earth where each is a wing of the Order of Melchizedek flying by the Spirit with one another. Keep at the top-of-your-mind that this New Living Creature of royal priests will only glory in the cross of Yeshua Ha Machiach (Jesus Christ).

Come! Let us go to the DEEP RED space where we have direct contact with the Father. Let us go to the place where the triple concentric circles of the Melchizedek Breastplate are positioned, as a contact lens, on the Father’s Bloodshot Eye to see this DEEP RED mystery of the Kingdom of God.

Imagine, if you will, the full stature of the crimson flow. What would that be? We are told in Ephesians 4:15 that it is necessary for the Mature Body of Christ to grow up into Him in all things. Colossians 1:24-25 portrays each member of His Body must fill up the afflictions of Christ in their flesh for His Body’s sake to fulfill the word of God (Yah).

Believers need to grasp what it means to walk in the exact same manner as Yeshua did. Scripture says that it pleased our Heavenly Father that all fullness should dwell in Yeshua having made peace through the blood of His cross to reconcile all things unto Himself (Col. 1:19-20). If all fullness dwelt in Yeshua through the blood of the cross, then it is a good clue how we all will corporately realize becoming a mature ONE NEW MAN to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ (Eph. 4:13). In Christ, we are brought near through the blood of Christ, and reconciled to God through the cross (Eph. 2:13,16).

How are we reconciled through the cross? Ephesians 2:16 says in ONE BODY. This is first an individual work in a believer’s life that must also be carried out corporately, so Yeshua’s Mature Head can attach to His Mature Body (Rev. 1:14). When the Son of Man comes again in His fullness bodily, His head – complete with white hair – can only be joined to a Body that is equally developed (full grown).

I mentioned earlier that the WAY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS actually consists of progressive crucifixion steps, which are the spiritual sacrifices still required of God’s Holy Priesthood (1 Pet 2:5). This is the process by which we will actually hit the bull’s eye of righteousness. Before we dive into this meaty subject, let take a quick fundamental look at what the book of Romans says about the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD.

The Righteousness of God is by the FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST unto all that believe in His shed blood for the remission of their sins. A man is justified solely by faith as a redemptive gift of grace, which reigns through righteousness unto eternal life via Yeshua Ha Machiach (Jesus Christ).

Let’s take a closer look at this last statement. Romans 3:28 tells us that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law; and then, Romans 3:24,31 brings to light that a man is justified freely by the redemptive grace that is in Christ Jesus, which establishes the law. Say what? How can this be?

If we look at the root of the Greek word “justified,” it means that when one is truly justified, they show what is right, free, innocent and holy. Even though deeds are never the basis of our being justified or righteous, it is our deeds that show the substance of who and what we are. James 2:22 discloses that it is by works that faith is made perfect or complete. If we are crucified daily in union with Christ according to the plumb line of righteousness (the Word of God), our outward appearance will be transformed into that same image from glory to glory, until we plainly reveal the righteous character of Christ.

Fullness Deposit

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“I have all the fullness of Christ within me!” A supernatural calm came over me as a woman yelled in this in my face. I thought something like, “Major disconnect” and “Wow! The fullness of Christ doesn’t act like that.” I try to stay as teachable as possible, because I know that we can all err as Mark 12:24 puts it because we do not know the Scriptures nor the power of God. If you know of anyone who doesn’t have gaps in knowing the Scriptures or the power of God, I really want to meet them! In this Kingdom Day, we will each be filled with all the fullness of God according to the breadth, length, depth and height of the love of Christ in our lives (Ephesians 3:17-19).

This bizarre yelling encounter led me to study the word “fullness” in Scripture. Numbers 18: 27 sets a precedence for the word “fullness,” because the first occurrence in Scripture always does (BTW – It’s Strong’s OT:435 mel-ay-aw’). Numbers 18:27 is talking about the “terumah” in Hebrew, which is a heave offering. Basically, it’s a true contribution from the heart primarily. Yeshua (i.e. Jesus) is our heave offering (terumah) – a wholehearted contribution. Our Beloved Messiah taught that the terumah offering that Moses gave in Numbers 18:25-31 was essentially a willing heart; therefore, the congregation of the Living God is formed by having a willing heart… being wholehearted by having a heart to do the perfect will of the Father. If you and I are to walk in the same manner as Jesus did (1 John 2:6), we are to do everything with all our heart.

Let’s take a closer look at the context and background of the Numbers 18:27 “fullness:”

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, ‘Speak thus to the Levites, and say to them: ‘When you take from the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you from them as your inheritance, then you shall offer up a heave offering of it to the Lord, a TENTH OF THE TITHE. And your heave offering shall be reckoned to you as though it were the grain of the threshing floor and as the FULLNESS of the winepress. Israel Of all your gifts you shall offer up every heave offering due to the Lord, from all the best of them, the consecrated part of them.’ ” (Number 18:25-29 KJV emphasis mine).

A terumah is separated from the grain at the threshing floor and from the grape juice and/or olive oil as it ripens in a vat. In Biblical times, when the Levites received their 10% share from the other Israelites, it was required that they raise up their “tithe from the tithe” (i.e. “tenth of the tithe”) as a gift to God Himself before it was given to His priests. The “tithe from the tithe” had the status of a terumah, which meant that only a Kohen (descendant of the first High Priest Aaron) may eat it and it had to be kept in a state of purity.

Notice that the terumah applies to grain, wine and oil. The oil symbolizes the pouring out of the Spirit of the Living God while the grain and grape juice symbolizes Yeshua’s communion elements given first by a priest of the Order of Melchizedek (Genesis 14:18). The Old Testament terumah picture of the “tithe on the tithe” is a foreshadowing of the New Testament reality of the 10% earnest or deposit of the Holy Spirit that happens when by grace through faith Christ dwells in the heart of one who believes (Ephesians 2:8; 3:17):

 Now he that wrought us for this very thing is God, who gave unto us the EARNEST OF THE SPIRIT” (2 Corinthians 5:5 ASV emphasis mine).

In  whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel  of your salvation : in whom also after that ye believed , ye were SEALED WITH THAT HOLY SPIRIT OF PROMISE, WHICH IS THE EARNEST OF OUR INHERITANCE UNTIL THE REDEMPTION OF THE PURCHASED POSSESSION, unto the praise of His glory (Ephesians 1:13-14 KJV emphasis mine).

Next time we will discuss the phrase “until the redemption of the purchased possession.” For now, let’s stand amazed at the deep meaning of the Hebrew Word Picture for the word “fullness” that was hidden thousands of years before Christ died for you and me on the cross, which puts an exclamation point to the 10% deposit (earnest) of the Holy Spirit Scriptures. The Hebrew Word Picture for mel-ay-aw’ “fullness” communicates that the water (i.e. the Holy Spirit and/or the Word) reveals the Shepherd (Yeshua) who shows us the Father. We should definitely raise our hands at the heave offering graciously given to us at the cross! Let’s worship the Lamb of God who is most worthy of our praise!

For those of you who are still wondering about our being filled with all the fullness of Christ, please remember that there’s a heavenly position of the 100% fullness of Christ and your manifest earthly condition of that heavenly position. Jesus Christ’s fullness of the Spirit was, is, and will always be 100%. Your fullness of His Spirit is not. Not yet, anyway. Any work of the Spirit in our lives grows as we obey the Father, and walk in the truth, faith and grace of the Son. Stay tuned, because a soon coming attraction is there is a Kingdom time and Kingdom place where “we all will come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Eph 4:13 KJV). Notice how it says “we all come… unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ,” because this is both an individual and corporate work of His Spirit by the Blood according to the Father’s heart.

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.”
