THE SONG THAT ALL OTHER SONGS SING

music by Delores DeVelde

“Who is this that comes up from the wilderness, leaning on her beloved? I awakened you under the apple tree; there your mother brought you forth; there she that bore you was in travail. Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is strong as death’ desire as cruel as Shoel; its flashes are flashes of fire and flame” (Song of Songs 8:5-6 Aramaic).

The Hebrew Sages say that the Song of Songs is the song that all other songs sing. Or in other words, it is the underlying song to all rejoicing, high praise and worship. Song of Songs 8:5 is significant during this Kingdom day and hour.

It speaks of a soul that cleaves to its Beloved. This bridal lover of God has been through the trials and tribulations that the wilderness brings and is coming up out of it with a deep knowledge that she only stands by leaning on her Beloved.

The Hebrew Sages report that the apple tree is synonymous with the duality of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. It is here where we are trying to discern both good and evil that our Beloved awakens us to the realities of the higher order of the Tree of Life.

Now is the time to be awaken or aroused spiritually in order to be inspired from the oneness above. It’s going to be a fruitful year, for this is the year of redemption. It’s the fullness of time when the Jewish people will be redeemed:

• “And if their rejection has resulted in reconciliation of the world, how much more will their restoration be? Indeed it will be life from the dead” (Romans 11:15 Aramaic).

• “For this corruption must put on incorruption and this moral must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:53 Aramaic).

• “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever” (Revelation 11:15b Aramaic).

FULLNESS OF TIME & THE FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES

time-hourgless-red-blue

The macro dispensation we just entered is the second time the phrase “fullness of time” is mentioned in the Bible. This fullness of time will result in the fullness of Him, and the fullness of the Gentiles is a door to it all. “For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in” (Romans. 11:25 NKJV).

I have heard consistently from others that the “fullness of the Gentiles” means that a certain number of people from the nations have become part of God’s household. While I agree with this explanation, I believe that it is the easiest and minimal interpretation of the phrase. Missionologists are saying that we are within reach of fulfilling the Great Commission having preached the gospel and made disciples of every tribe, tongue, and nation.

The Greek word translated as “fullness” in the phrase “the fullness of the Gentiles” is plaroma, which conveys a sense of completion. My Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary says that completion is the act or process of completing. It is also the quality or state of being complete. The word “complete” carries the meaning of: to make whole or perfect; to mark the end of; fully carried out; and having all parts, elements or steps. Therefore, the fullness of the Gentiles is a time when the Gentile outreach has reached God’s predetermined state of completion having all necessary elements to proceed to the next step.

As I have contemplated the meaning of the “fullness of time” for years now, I have seen where it is not just limited to a quantified number or to a fixed moment when something occurs. The fullness of time is also a measurable period during which a condition exists or continues. It is a season of time (a non-spacial continuum) measured in terms of events. For example, when Cornelius and his household were saved, I believe that the overarching season called the fullness of the Gentiles began; and it will continue until the Lord says it has ended. “He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart without which man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end” (Ecclesiastes.3:11 NASB).

Let’s recap. The fullness of the Gentiles appears to be a fixed event in time, a quantifiable stopping point determined by the Lord; but it can also be defined as the season in which an end to a determined fullness will come. I believe that in addition to marking the end of a season in terms of a quantifiable number of people, the fullness of the Gentiles is a season within a season. I personally believe that when the fullness of the Gentiles season ends, it does not mean that no more Gentiles will be saved for that would contradict scripture. Just as there were Jews saved through faith by grace during the Church Age (i.e. the time of the Gentiles), so will Gentiles receive salvation in the emerging age: “not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (1 Peter 3:9).

ARIEL SHARON and THE FULLNESS OF TIME

Arik-Sharon-Yom-Kippur-war

God’s warrior for Israel – the 11th Prime Minister for Israel – Ariel Sharon died today on 01-11. Not only does the date he died hold prophetic significance with “111” speaking of COMPLETE ONENESS, but when we add that Ariel Sharon was the 11th Prime Minster of Israel, it communicates that there’s a GRACE TO ENTER THIS COMPLETE ONENESS. Additionally, when we add the year 2014 to the mix, we understand that it also speaks of this being a time for a TESTIMONY OR WITNESS OF DELIVERANCE (SETTING THE CAPTIVES FREE). Please read to the end to get the full revelation of the prophetic significance.

“For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation …to create in Himself ONE NEW MAN from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross …” (Eph 2:14-16 NKJV).

According to providence, the One New Man in the Messiah will manifest. We are in a time when this seismic shift is happening so that Jews and Gentiles can come together as ONE in Him.

Many are now asking if the Messiah will reveal Himself to Israel as Rabbi Kadduri prophesied. There was a prophecy that after Ariel Sharon’s death the Messiah will reveal Himself to the Jewish People. Kadduri was a respected Rabbi who did not believe in Yeshua, but before he died he said the Messiah had appeared to him. He then wrote the Name of the Messiah as “Yeshua” to be revealed after he had died. This troubled his followers, because they didn’t believe Yeshua was the Messiah. Kadduri said the Messiah said to him: He will reveal Himself to Israel after the death of Ariel Sharon. Many Jews are now expecting the revelation of Yeshua as the Messiah.

I believe that LOVE is unveiling the eyes of the nation of Israel, because we are currently in a season – FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES – within another season – the FULLNESS OF TIME.

Romans 11:25 tells us that a “blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.” Please also note what Romans 11:15 says about the Jewish people coming back to the Messiah: “For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?” Get ready! Get ready! Resurrection life is being released in sprout form.

In our day we have a fresh dispensation dawning, which encompasses and expands upon everything that has gone before it. Don’t get hung up on the word “dispensation.” It simply means a divine global shift in earth’s administration. (For more information, please see http://wp.me/p158HG-yo .) According to the Bible, our new macro dispensation’s hallmark will be the Messiah gathering all things together in Him:

“that in the dispensation of the FULLNESS OF TIME HE MIGHT GATHER TOGETHER IN ONE ALL THINGS IN THE MESSIAH, both which are in heaven and which are on earth – in Him” (Ephesians 1:10)

The macro dispensation we just entered is the second time the phrase “FULLNESS OF TIME” is mentioned in the Bible. This fullness of time will result in the fullness of Him, and the fullness of the Gentiles is a door to it all.

“For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in” (Romans 11:25 NKJV).

I have heard consistently from others that the “fullness of the Gentiles” means that a certain number of people from the nations have become part of God’s household. While I agree with this explanation, I believe that it is the easiest and minimal interpretation of the phrase. Missionologists are saying that we are within reach of fulfilling the Great Commission having preached the gospel and made disciples of every tribe, tongue, and nation. The Greek word translated as “fullness” in the phrase “the fullness of the Gentiles” is plaroma, which conveys a sense of completion. My Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary says that completion is the act or process of completing. It is also the quality or state of being complete. The word “complete” carries the meaning of: to make whole or perfect; to mark the end of; fully carried out; and having all parts, elements or steps. Therefore, THE FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES IS A TIME WHEN THE GENTILES OUTREACH HAS REACHED GOD’S PREDETERMINED STATE OF COMPLETION HAVING ALL NECESSARY ELEMENTS TO PROCEED TO THE NEXT STEP.

As I have contemplated the meaning of the “fullness of time” for years now, I have seen where it is not just limited to a quantified number or to a fixed moment when something occurs. The fullness of time is also a measurable period during which a condition exists or continues. It is a season of time (a non-spacial continuum) measured in terms of events. For example, when Cornelius and his household were saved, I believe that the overarching season called the fullness of the Gentiles began; and it will continue until the Lord says it has ended.

“He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart without which man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end” (Ecclesiastes 3:11 NASB).

Let’s recap. The fullness of the Gentiles appears to be a fixed event in time, a quantifiable stopping point determined by the Lord; but it can also be defined as the season in which an end to a determined fullness will come. I believe that in addition to marking the end of a season in terms of a quantifiable number of people, the fullness of the Gentiles is a season within a season. I personally believe that when the fullness of the Gentiles season ends, it does not mean that no more Gentiles will be saved for that would contradict scripture. Just as there were Jews saved through faith by grace during the Church Age (i.e. the time of the Gentiles), so will Gentiles receive salvation in the emerging age: “not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (1 Peter 3:9).

To sum it all up… YHWH is taking the spirit of stupor off His Jewish People that He Himself put on them (Romans 11:8), so they can see & receive their Messiah Yahshua (Jesus). Please know that there has always been a remnant (Romans 11:5), but we are talking about Him historically opening the eyes of this nation. This welcoming back of His Hebrew prodigal sons is a sign at the end of the age of the release of resurrection life on earth (Romans 11:15). We should be VERY EXCITED, because Romans 11:12 says how much more will their fullness be, if their fall and diminishing brought riches to the world and riches of the Gentiles.

The name “Ariel” means Lion of God, and the plain sense meaning of the name “Sharon” tells us its a fertile plain, so on the surface we understand that his name communicates the message – The Lion of God is making a way for the voice of one crying in the wilderness – Prepare ye the way of the Lord (Isa 40:3-4).

Let’s dive a little deeper… I felt led to sit with the LORD a little while back to get the Ancient Hebrew Word Picture revealed in the name “Sharon.” A Hebrew Word Picture is an ancient message revealed when one looks at the letters in a Hebrew word. Those Hebrew letters are also pictures when put together they reveal an Ancient Hebrew Word Picture or Pictograph. It’s very important not to lean on one’s own understanding when seeking a revelatory Hebrew Word Picture, so one should wait and meditate until HE speaks to you.

The Hebrew word “sharon” is made up of the letters Hebrew: שָׁרוֹן, (sheen, reysh, vav & noon).

• שָׁ – sheen is a picture of a tooth, which can carry the meaning of: [1] to devour, [2] to destroy [3] to consume, or [4] something sharp.

• ר – reysh is a picture of a head, which can carry the meaning of: [1] a person, [2] what is highest, [3] authority, or [4] what is most important.

• וֹ – vav is a picture of a nail or hook, which can carry the meaning of: [1] joining together [2] making secure, [3] becoming bound (nailed to), or [4] to establish.

• וֹ – noon is a picture of a fish darting through water, which can carry the meaning of: [1] action, or [2] life.

The Hebrew Word Picture for SHARON is a Crucified One consumed with the highest life and action of El Shaddai – the Almighty.

Therefore, when we add this all together, we receive a beautiful message this Kingdom Day: THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH IS RELEASING THE GRACE FOR COMPLETE ONENESS FOR THE CRUCIFIED ONES CONSUMED WITH THE HIGHEST LIFE AND ACTION OF EL SHADDAI – THE ALMIGHTY.

We are coming full circle to our primordial state like it was in the Garden before the Fall, which is an INCREDIBLE PRESENT for the present.

NEVER CUT OFF THE BODY FROM THE HEAD

Book Dream

The mysteries of God’s Kingdom have always existed, but their vast reality has barely been delved into until such a time as this. The Lord is unveiling much more about a mystery, which He calls His Pure and Spotless Bride. Her code name is the New Jerusalem (Rev 3:12; 21:2) or the One New Man in Christ (Ephesians 2:15).

Please don’t get hung up on gender specific terms; because both men and women are called to be sons of God, the Bride of Christ, and the One New Man. Let’s contemplate how the perfect resurrection of Christ’s Body will inaugurate the age of the Bride of Christ or the New Jerusalem or the One New Man in Christ – these three being one as diverse aspects of the same consummation. In Him and in fellowship with one another, we are actually being built according to His time and His way into an eternal dwelling place for the King of Kings.

A radically new dispensation has arrived upon the scene of human history every two thousand years since the dawn of man’s time (Biblically speaking). The first two thousand year mark in man’s time saw Abraham walked up Mount Moriah to worship God by offering up his son Issac. Many experts agree that God’s physical temple in Jerusalem – the city of our great king – was built upon the same Mount Moriah. Two-thousand years later, which is also approximately two thousand years ago for us, another Fullness of Time came when Yeshua (Jesus) was born so we might be reconciled to God: “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).

A very appropriate word for the season, we just entered is the word “dispensation,” which simply put means an administrative system. It’s an ordering of events under divine authority. The Almighty One is in charge of this and any shift in the divine order of earthly things. He has been, and will always be, large and in charge. He is simply administering things on earth a bit different than before, and it affects everything we do and who we are. That’s the point. God is making adjustments so that His Resurrected Body of Believers and Bridal Company can come into their fullness. If God can measure the waters of the earth in the hollow of His hand, and with the breath of His hand mark off the heavens; then know that a small thing for the Lord, like a global shift in the earth’s administration, will probably be massive, even revolutionary, to us.

Spiritually speaking, the people of God are “a royal priesthood” (1 Pet. 2:9) and at the same time we are being built into a spiritual house [i.e. temple]” (1 Pet. 2:5). From heaven’s point of view, God’s people aren’t in a temple; we are the temple with each of us being a living stone. We are also its priests, but only the sons of a King can be considered royalty.

The whole world has entered the latest season of divine administration – Fullness of Times – where Christ’s Mature Head will be ultimately united with His mature Body. [Please see the KEYS TO THE REDEMPTION OF OUR BODY links below, and for more information about the “Fullness of Time”, please refer to: http://wp.me/p158HG-yo.]

Recall that Jeremiah 33:18 lists three progressive crucifixion steps for the Bride’s Baptism of Fire, which are spiritual sacrifices still required of God’s Holy Priesthood: “For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually” (Jeremiah 33:17-18 KJV).

What we are keying in on today is the phrase “never want” in “David has never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Is-real.” Those words “never want” not only refer to royalty (i.e. the throne of David), but to priests as we flow into the next verse. Within this passage of Scripture, LOVE reveals an ancient key for kings and priests of the Most High God.

On the surface level the phrase “never want” in Hebrew speaks of an absolute prohibition of taking away His royal priestly covenant as well as being an absolute prohibition of cutting off the Body from its Head – the Messiah (Ephesians 4:15-16).

If we dig a little deeper into the Ancient Hebrew Word Pictures for the phrase “never want”, we see that the word “never” tells us that Abba gives direction to what is first and what will prod or urge us forward, in addition to Abba gives us strength to control our tongues so we can move toward Him. The Ancient Hebrew Word Picture for “want” speaks of opening the door that reveals the path to the way of life. It shows us how to be covered by His throne.

So here’s to the Lord being our Shepherd and we shall never want! Here’s to Christ’s Head never being cut off from His Body of Royal Priests!!!

TAKING ON COMMON UNION – Part 7

CREATURE WAITING FOR THE MANIFESTATION OF MATURE SONS

Ark - Light Golden Wings

The New Living Creature, which is a wing of the Order of Melchizedek flying in the Spirit together, waits for the manifestation of mature sons. “For the earnest expectation of the CREATURE waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God” (Romans 8:19 KJV).

Today, we usually hear the phrase “All creation waits for the manifestation of the sons of God,” which is true and accurate, but more specifically this verse is speaking about the restoration of all things is waiting for a royal priesthood to arise, shine and rule the earth as co-heirs in Christ. All of creation groans for the ones who will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God (Romans 8:21-22).

We truly are what we are waiting for. In fact, the entire world is on the edge of its seat – groaning – desperately looking for the corporate One New Man in Christ to become a public demonstration of His power. The key that unlocks the formidable appearance of the Royal Order of Melchizedek (with Jesus Christ as its High Priest) is mature sonship. This article reveals vital Mature Son ingredients needed for His sons of righteousness —> http://wp.me/p158HG-xC .

“But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. FOR IN CHRIST JESUS … AVAILETH … A NEW CREATURE” (Galatians 6:14-15 KJV).

Even though the son’s portion came in the Fullness of Time when Jesus came to earth and purchased it on the cross, we must appropriate the redemptive gift of sonship the same way that it was acquired. Our journey of “moving unto perfection” is a crucifixion process. Dying daily is the only way we actually develop into mature, full-grown sons of God. The wisdom of God insists upon our permission to crucify our sin nature, and He will only complete the work of co-crucifixion with Christ with our approval.

BECOMING A MATURE SON THROUGH THE BAPTISM OF FIRE

Blood One Drop Crucifixion

Two chief characteristics of a son of God according to the Word of God is that they serve God with a whole heart (1 Chronicles 28:9) as well as keeping God’s commandments (Proverbs 7:1-2: 1 John 2:3-6; Revelation 14:12). We are not talking about something yucky and legalistic, but a State of Being that resonates at the same frequency as the Word of God – Jesus. Please be encouraged, because this is a divine work of sanctification that’s done not by your might or your power, but by His Spirit (Zechariah 4:6). All that God requires from you and me is that we put our best foot forward in obeying His Word and surrendering to His Spirit. Thankfully, the Lord our God will give us all the grace that we need (2 Corinthians 9:8; Hebrews 4:16).

“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6 NASB).

Even though the son’s portion came in the Fullness of Time when Jesus came to earth and purchased it on the cross (Galatians 4:4-6), we must experientially appropriate the redemptive gift of sonship the same way that it was acquired. Our journey of “moving unto perfection” is a crucifixion process (much more will be shared in another article). Dying daily is the only way we actually develop into mature, full-grown sons of God (Matthew 10:37-39, 16:24; Mark 8:34, 10:21; Luke 9:23, 14:27). The wisdom of God insists upon our permission to crucify our sin nature, and He will only complete the work of co-crucifixion with Christ with our approval. Volunteering freely in the day of God’s power is a continual daily sanctioning of “not my will, but Yours be done” (Matthew 6:10). Paul shows us the culmination of being an Adult Son is living a crucified life:

“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me” (Galatians 2:20 NASB).

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)

In fact, the only reason that we can have confidence that Yeshua’s sacrifice on the cross was sufficient to pay the penalty for all sin (once and for all) relies on Moses’s instructions on the priests, the altars, and the sacrificial system. When Christians throw out these instructions and the first five books of the Bible in His eternal Word, we throw out the very basis that we can rely on Jesus’s shed blood on the cross washes away all of our sin.

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

— Precious or Mature Sons —

The second leg of our three-part journey of “moving onto perfection” (Heb 6:1) is called the son’s portion, but more accurately it should be defined as the mature son’s portion for that’s the ultimate goal at this part of our Kingdom trek. Our quest to be just like Jesus is “painfully beautiful” [1] at this juncture.

The son’s portion is the place where our bonds in Christ are readily perceived by our senses and recognized by our minds (Phil 1:13). Second Corinthians 5:14 tells us that the love of Christ should instruct, control or constrain us.  Therefore, the bonds in Christ are obvious within a believer at this stage when one endeavors to become a mature man (Ephesians 4:13) or when one shoots even higher to become part of Christ’s pure and spotless Bride (Matthew 25: 1-13; Ephesians 5:27; Revelation 21). Remember that both men and women are called to be Adult Sons and the Bride of Christ, because in the Spirit there’s no male or female (Galatians 3:28). By the way, the third and hardest leg of the “moving unto perfection” journey is the bridal portion.  For now, please note that sons are chosen to build a house for God’s sanctuary (1 Chronicles 28:10) while His Bride literally makes up His house. She is the glorious exalted space where He can and will dwell (Revelation 21:3).

Let’s keep focused on the full-grown son’s portion. Please note that the magnificent corporate purpose of mature sons being bonded in Christ is to unite via an attractive force, and then to embed this cohesive force into a matrix called the One New Man in Christ, which is a phenomenal truth that will be covered in another article.

The son’s portion is a place where we are moving beyond proving what’s merely good to a more restrained place of proving what’s acceptable, approved or pleasing in God’s sight, so we will no longer be conformed to this world in a greater measure (Rom 12:2).

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.

~Psalm 19:14 NASB

We tend to forget that it was partaking of the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil that caused man to fall from their exalted state of daily communion with God. When we are working out what is acceptable to the Lord our God in our Kingdom within, God works to rein in our mouths, hearts and deeds to align perfectly with His words, His thought and His works. Incremental solidified change results in transformation, which can be a lengthy process at best unless God does something sovereign. Be forewarned: When God is tuning a person’s life to that which is acceptable in His sight, anything that grieves His heart will surface. Mixture will be sifted out here.

Most believers, if not all, have things to perfect at this level. If you think that you don’t, it’s the quickest signal that you do because having a humble, teachable heart is a preeminent hallmark of a maturing or mature son of God (Proverbs 2-7). Growing, maturing sons continually endeavor to work out their salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12), according to the righteous and just standards of God’s throne (Psalms 89:14). When we declare platitudes, like: I’m already holy, I’m already righteous, I’m already a mature son, I’m already His Bride, or I’m already an overcomer, we need to realize that God is already examining those very areas of our life to see if they measure up. Any one of the above manifestations are heavenly positions that believers have access to “in Christ,” but it’s God’s appraisal of our earthly condition that determines the level of a person’s or a group’s maturity. Ephesians 4:13 tells us that “a mature man” is determined by the standard of the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. Jesus Christ’s fullness is always 100%. Your or my fullness is not. Not yet. I dare you to ask the Lord, “How much of the fullness of the stature of Christ do I have?” Our goal is for these heavenly positions to become walking-talking realities here in the land of the living, but for now, I see too often that these glorious heavenly positions, like being an Adult Son or the Bride, are used as emphatic declarations that keep us unknowingly stunted.

Everyone (both in the Church and the world) recognizes a genuine manifestation of God’s power and any heavenly position manifestly held here on earth. If we’re honest with ourselves, we will see that blanket platitudes are red flags that signal where God would like to refine us. Trite remarks usually indicate areas where we’re protective, defensive, and unwilling to dive deeper into the Way and the Truth and the Life. When someone utters, I’m already such-and-such but their life doesn’t always demonstrate that reality, the only people who buy into their confession are like-minded individuals. Everyone else can discern the fact that your State of Being doesn’t measure up to what you tout. Christ’s Church needs to recognize that our hypocritical assumptions are painfully obvious to the most casual observer.

He began saying to His disciples first of all, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.”

                                                                                                          ~ Luke 12:1b NASB

Most of us are more immature than we’d like to admit. Just remember that if you can not or will not admit the truth of your current condition here on earth, you’ll never be set free in that area of your life because it’s the truth that set us free (John 8:32). But praise be to God that He never denies genuine heart cries! Oh that we might turn, and be healed!

Wade Taylor writes: “Our ‘willing obedience’ is the determining factor in our becoming an overcomer. Being an overcomer is not that we do. Rather, it relates to the intent and issues of our heart, which determines our actions…. as long as we walk in submission and obedience, it can be said that we are an overcomer.” [2] I agree, except I’d extend this statement to include holiness, righteousness, mature sons, the Bride, etc. For this article, let’s just say that our willing obedience to the One who sits on the throne and unto the Lamb is the determining factor in our becoming a mature son.

Two chief characteristics of a son of God is that they serve God with a whole heart (1 Chronicles 28:9) as well as keeping God’s commandments (Proverbs 7:1-2: 1 John 2:3-6; Revelation 14:12). We are not talking about something yucky and legalistic, but a State ofBeingthat resonates at the same frequency as the Word of God – Jesus. Please be encouraged, because this is a divine work of sanctification that’s done not by your might or your power, but by His Spirit (Zechariah 4:6). All that God requires from you and me is that we put our best foot forward in obeying His Word and surrendering to His Spirit. Thankfully, the Lord our God will give us all the grace that we need (2 Corinthians 9:8; Hebrews 4:16).

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

                                                                                                     ~ Philippians 1:6 NASB

Even though the son’s portion came in the Fullness of Time when Jesus came to earth and purchased it on the cross (Galatians 4:4-6), we must experientially appropriate the redemptive gift of sonship the same way that it was acquired. Our journey of “moving unto perfection” is a crucifixion process (much more will be shared in another article). Dying daily is the only way we actually develop into mature, full-grown sons of God (Matthew 10:37-39, 16:24; Mark 8:34, 10:21; Luke 9:23, 14:27). The wisdom of God insists upon our permission to crucify our sin nature, and He will only complete the work of co-crucifixion with Christ with our approval. Volunteering freely in the day of God’s power is a continual daily sanctioning of “not my will, but Yours be done” (Matthew 6:10). Paul shows us the culmination of being an Adult Son is living a crucified life:

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

                                                                                                         ~ Galatians 2:20 NASB

Remember from our previous “Burnt Offering” teaching that it’s the Good Shepherd of our souls who chooses the best sacrifice that will go on His Altar, not us. So when you find yourself in a miserable place where you just want out (you wanna run for all your worth), just stop, take a breath, stand, and keep your eyes focused on the prize – the Author and Perfecter of your faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross (Hebrews 12:2).

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations (encounter various trials); Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire (complete), wanting nothing.

                                                                 ~ James 1:2-4 KJV (additional comments mine) 

When you focus on the Way and the Truth and the Life (John 14:6), He revelatory leads you beside the still waters around the Tree of Life, which will enable you to recognize and process the grueling situation(s) you find yourself in according to His Kingdom come. As you keep focused on Him when you encounter various trials, the Lord our God will restore your soul (Psalms 23:3). He will guide you in the paths of righteousness for His Name sake (Psalms 23:3), and He will prepare a feast of goodness, kindness and love before you in the presence of your enemies (Psalms 23:5). And thus, you are well on your way on the path of life (i.e. righteousness) where one of the most arduous tests is overcoming evil with good (Romams 12:21):

But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? … Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

                                                                          ~Matthew 5:44-48 NASB (emphasis mine)

Only the highest caliber of saints allows their sin natures to be completely crucified. Through the ages, saints who’ve endured the cross to live in this high and lofty place of common union with the Most High God have been few and far between. People like Enoch, Moses, the Apostle John and Paul were totally separated from the world, which allowed them to live an overcoming life in a crossover place with God, so sacred and beautiful that it begs description. Even though resurrection life (complete crucifixion of worldly and fleshly passions) is not a new grace, it’s been preferred by and fixed on by a small number of extremely devout saints.  One of the new things that God is going to do in our day is to extend this crucified life grace (authentic death, burial, resurrection life reality) to a large company of believers:

that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His suffering, being conformed to His death; in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.

                                                                                                              ~Philippians 3:10-12 NASB

We must remember that difficult crucifying circumstances are the painfully beautiful agents that form you into His very image where you are filled with tangible effervescent joy, unwavering powerful love, profound life-giving wisdom, et cetera. “All of you, for all of Him.” It’s really quite a bargain.

Let’s shift for a moment, back to our study of the dispensation of the fullness of times. In order to be complete, we need to thoroughly understand the picture that God is painting. Remember that 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. This means we need to look more into what God says about a precious or mature son.

Almost every time the word “son” is used in the New Testament, it comes from two Greek words:

[1]  teknon = babies or immature sons,

[2]  huios = mature sons (used in Revelation 21:7)

Immature sons of God – teknons – tend to go after their own heart’s desires, and are less likely to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. So basically, a mark of the spiritually immature is that they have not yet learned to act only on the Spirit’s leading. Another mark of spiritual immaturity is most often teknons react, or respond, emotionally or intellectually to various trials they face as well as seeking to protect themselves; therefore, they are “always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Timothy 3:7). We can only come to the knowledge of the truth by applying it. Character is forged by facing difficult circumstances, not running away from or hiding from the truth. Truth must be allowed to have its way in our lives if we are going to mature. The Hebrew pictograph for the word “humble” reveals that humility comes when we destroy our walls of self-protection. While the Hebrew pictograph for the word “pride” tells us that we are in pride when we lift ourselves up in our own strength.

God’s Kingdom focuses on growing and maturing sons (huios). Physical growth for people is a function of time. Intellectual growth is a function of learning. While spiritual growth is a function of obedience.  If Jesus was a mature Son (huios), yet He learned obedience by the things He suffered (Heb 5:8), then we should expect to have to walk in the same manner as He did (1 John 2:6):

Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for          obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or obedience resulting in righteousness? I am speaking in human term because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, resulting in  sanctification (holiness).

                                                                ~ Romans 6: 16,19 NASB (emphasis mine)

From these verses we see a pattern where obedience to God’s divine will results in our righteousness, which results in our holiness. We’ll discuss this process more in another article. For now, please allow me to pull out some prevalent Biblical themes with regard to mature sons of God without doing an exhaustive study. Mature or Adult Sons:

[1]  Are heirs of God’s Kingdom (Rom. 8:17; Gal. 3:29; Heb. 11:8-10).

[2]  Serve God with a whole heart and willing mind, i.e. soul (1 Chr. 28:9).

[3]  Are chosen to build a dwelling place for God’s sanctuary (1 Chr. 28:10).

[4]  Hear, treasure, and observe God’s commandments (Prov. 1:8; 2:1; 4:1; 5:7; 7:1,24).

[5]  Love their enemies and they pray for their persecutors (Matt. 5:44-45).

[6]  Are continually led by the Spirit of God (Rom. 8:14).

[7] Are the pool from which the overcoming bridal company is drawn from (Rev. 21:7).

However, all mature sons are not necessarily part of the pure and spotless Bride (Matthew 25:1-13; Ephesians 5:27). One does not guarantee the other. There are wise virgins and foolish virgins within the church. To be part of Christ’s Bride, one must literally go through their own close and personal baptism of fire (i.e., complete crucifixion) where the All-Consuming Fire who sits on the sapphire throne (Ezekiel 1:26-27, 10:1; Hebrews 12:29) righteously judges our earth. On this side of heaven in the land of the living, God will be testing the quality of each bridal candidate’s works by fire (1 Corinthians 3:12-15), so she can be properly clothed for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb with bright and clean fine linen, which is a robe of righteousness (Isaiah 61:10-11), or as Revelation 19:8 tells us that this fine linen is literally the righteous acts of the saints.

Please do not dismiss this truth lightly. Becoming part of the Bride of Christ is not a salvation issue, it’s about the most intimate, eternal relationship with the King of kings. It’s an eternal reward issue where no one will be exempt. True Christians will either be found by the Judge of heaven and earth, the King of the Ages, to be a wise virgin or a foolish one and I wouldn’t just assume that you are counted in the wise column. Too much is at stake to assume and presume anything; and unfortunately, Christ’s Church has taught us for decades that everyone who is part of the church is part of the pure and spotless Bride. This is not a Scripturally accurate picture. (Please refer to the “Here Comes The Bride http://www.sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2012/03/28/here-comes-the-bride/  article for greater clarification.)

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).
