God’s Invisible Government – Breastplate Urim v’Tumim

Breastplate stones

Did you know that you are a creative sound that is made to resound with renown — the renown of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords? And your creative sound made to resound with renown is connected to the government of God?

What is the invisible government of YHVH anyway? There is more than one answer to this question. God’s Kingdom within you and me is like the wings of His heart wrapping around our eyes, so we can see how His heart moves. Let’s explore one dimension of God’s invisible government that is portrayed in the High Priest’s Breastplate, which was connected to his shoulders and placed on his heart. Please consider if God’s government is upon Yeshua (Jesus) who is the Prince of Peace that sits upon the Throne of David (Isa 9:6-7), then also consider that He is the Head while His believers are His Body. On the Body of the Messiah are shoulders, and in the background of ancient picture of the Royal Priesthood of Believers is the Breastplate of Judgment, sometimes called the Breastplate of Righteousness (Urim v’Tumim).

I once erroneous taught that the Urim v’Tumim was some sort of a “lot,” because my NASB International Inductive Study Bible had an Insight Note, which states: “The breastplate, which was fastened to the ephod, had a linen pouch which held the Urim and Thummim, which may have been used as sacred lots to reveal God’s will (1 Samuel 28:6).” 1 Samuel 28:6 says, “When Saul inquired of the LORD, the LORD did not answer him, either by dreams or by Urim or by prophets.” By the time the events of 1 Samuel 28 rolls around, David had already been anointed as King, and an evil spirit sent by the Lord was tormenting Saul as a result of his continual dabbling in divination, rebellion and insubordination to God.

Let’s get the correct insight into the Breastplate of Judgment (Choshen Mishpat) by looking into Hebrew History. First of all the Breastplate of Judgment on the High Priest’s garments was made of a 28-strand colored wool yarn/linen/gold material that had been twisted and rolled together, then folded in half to form a pouch. The 28-strand Breastplate was shaped like a rectangle measuring 1 cubit by ½ cubit (approximately 18 inches x 9 inches). In this pouch-like pocket Moses inserted a piece of parchment that is said to have had the Ineffable (unspeakable, sacred) Name Y-H-W-H written on it. It’s a mystery what Moses actually wrote or how he wrote it, but we do know that, the only one at that time to have met God face to face — Moses — was the only one who had the spiritual knowledge to write that Name or those Names on that holy piece of parchment, which was inserted into the high priest’s Breastplate.

This Name or Names inserted into the cleft of the Breastplate was called Urim, from the Hebrew word “light,” because it would cause individual letters of the tribal names on the Breastplate to light up; and this Name was also called Tumim, from the word “completeness,” because if read in the proper order, these luminous letters presented complete and true answers to the questions of national import that the Kohen Gadol (High Priest) would ask of God.

The Urim v’Tumim is not mentioned among the vestments that were made by artisans or contributed by the people (i.e. human hands). “You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men; being manifested that you are a letter of Christ… written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone, but on tablets of human hearts.” (2 Corinthians 3:2-3, NASB).

A Jewish Sage named Ramban gives an example of how this Urim v’Tumim/ Breastplate process took place. “When the God’s people crossed the Jordan and had to undertake the conquest of the Land, the question arose which tribe should begin the war against the Canaanites. Phinehas the Kohen Gadol entered the Tabernacle and posed the question. The name Judah lit up, and also the letters hey, lamed, ayin, and yood. The Kohen had to know what this combination of letters represented, because they could be placed in several orders, thus forming different combinations of words. A Divine spirit gave him the wisdom to know that the message of the Urim v’Tumim was “The tribe of Judah shall go forth [to wage war]” (See Judges 1:1-2).

Another Jewish Sage Vilna Gaon gives a classic interpretation of how the message of the Urim v’Tumim could be misunderstood. “When Hannah, the future mother of the prophet Samuel, entered the Tabernacle to pray for a child, the Kohen Gadol Eli saw her unusual demeanor and reckoned her to be a drunkard, rather than a supremely righteous woman (1 Samuel 1:13).” It is believed that Eli consulted the Urim v’Tumim regarding Hannah, and the Hebrew letters hey, dalet, kaf, and shin lit up. Instead of reading them correctly as “a worthy woman,” Eli mistakenly read the letters in the wrong order as “a drunken woman.”

Given the fact that the Hebrew Alef-Bet is the protoplasm of creation. Given the fact that it pre-dated the rest of creation and is the first born of all creation, the letters and their order is vitally important (Please refer to http://wp.me/p2k1dQ-kE for more information.) The Bible says that we are the letters of Christ written with the Spirit of the living God on tablets of human hearts (1 Corinthians 3:2-3). Christ in us the hope of glory is THE source of all true light and revelation, and He resides in the heart of every believer. He is the one that enlightens a person’s heart with a message from God.

I believe that myself and other believers are on a learning curve where the Lord is teaching us how to wait for Him to impart a complete spirit of revelation and how to remain marinating in His Presence until we receive a complete and true interpretation of what’s on His heart. The piece of parchment with God’s sacred name written on it symbolically represents every believer. Remember that we are the letters of Christ written with the Spirit of the Living God on tablets of human hearts.

When a person accepts the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ as their source of salvation, it is like when the Urim v’Tumim (the piece of parchment with the Ineffable Name written on it) was slid into the pouch of the High Priest’s Breastplate. This symbolizes that at the moment when a person is born again, the Spirit of the Living God writes the Word on our hearts and puts a new revelatory spirit within us.

“Put me like a seal over your heart…” (Song of Songs 8:6a) The Urim v’ Tumim was located directly over the Kohen Gadol’s heart, which is a beautiful picture of our Great High Priest, Jesus, placing us directly on His heart in the pocket (cleft) of the Rock as we draw near to that place with Him (Exodus 33:22). It is here where the Light of God illuminates His message (Urim) – within us. It is also here in the midst of His heart that we must remain to receive Y-H-V-H’s spiritual language of revelation (Tumim). THIS IS THE POWER OF HIS WORD. His Divine Will being fully made know. I don’t know about you, but the Lord is still training me in “waiting revelation.” Just when I think I’ve got it, I find out I don’t. I find that many revelatory messages that the Lord imparts to me seem to start out as “a shapeless chaotic mass” (Genesis 1:2 TLB) – a random word, a vision, whatever. I find that I need to wait and remain in His Presence longer to let the Spirit of God brood over these dark vapors, then, as the next verse (Genesis 1:3) reveals, light and life will appear through His revelatory word to and through me.

When God instituted talking to the nation of Israel through the Urim v’ Tumim, He taped into the raw material of all created things — the spiritual forces caused by His Divine will — as communicated through lit, properly ordered and understood letters illuminated on colorful precious stones representing Israel’s twelve tribes. These lit gemstones are a miniature picture of believers being His precious “living stones” (1 Peter 2:5). When God said “Let Us make man in Our image…” (Gen. 1:26), Yeshua put the protoplasm of the universe, His unchangeable Word, within each one of us. He arranged me as a letter of Christ different than He arranged you, but nonetheless, everyone made “in His image” has God’s immutable nature within him or her.

As a prophetic people, our Great High Priest Yeshua shines through us with the True Light, which enlightens every man. We are “the light of the world!” (Matt 5:14) Just as Yeshua spoke and it was so, may we be a creative sound that resounds with renown — the renown of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. I am still working on how to properly articulate these truths. I pray you have captured His message, and that the teaching about the Urim v’Tumim operating as some sort of random “sacred lot” is not correct. The Urim v’Tumim speaks of God’s desire to directly communicate with each one of us — a simple truth that the littlest child can understand. Jesus loves me, wants to hold me and speak to me. “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3). Indeed, this is an important aspect of the invisible government of God.

As we eagerly await His coming, Let there be light! “Arise, My people! Let your light shine for all the nations to see! For the glory of the Lord is streaming from you. All nations will come to your light…” (Isaiah 60:1,3a)

Give em heaven!!!

WHAT DO YOU SEE? GOD’S WORD FULFILLED

Light - Minnesota Bride Fashion FW 1

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CHANUKAH DEVOTION FOR NIGHT 6:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

TAKING ON COMMON UNION – Part 2

“With this wine and bread, WE thee wed.”

Lampstand - Fullness of 7 Spirits Like Yeshua

After several years of my taking communion elements daily, a holy shift happened. The taking OF communion (common union) changed to the taking ON common union.

One morning after receiving a vision of Yeshua (Jesus) among the Seven Spirits of God, I heard the Father say: “Today, we come together for holy matrimony.” Since I had been declaring “With this wine and bread, I thee wed” over my daily communion for years, I was a bit perplexed and at the same time extremely expectant. I waited silently in awe. Then without any external instruction, all four of us – the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit and I – spontaneously recited in unison: “With this bread and wine, we thee wed.” We all took the communion of holy matrimony.

My heart cry the previous night was that the seven-fold nature of Christ (that’s represented before the throne as seven torches) would take possession of me. From the depths, I cried out to be completely possessed by the life of God. I wanted to walk in the fullest impartation of the seven Spirits of God, like Yeshua did when He walked the earth.

I had been reading Nita Johnson’s book “Melchizedek: The New Millennium Priesthood” at the time. It literally struck me that Melchizedek saints will have Christ’s Being lived out through them by means of the seven Spirits of God. The Spirits – the divine spiritual depiction of the seven-fold nature of Christ – will promote God’s administered will or government on earth through this end-time priesthood.

All that is given through the marvelous gift of the seven Spirits of God is designed to bring the Bride into a place where she is without spot or wrinkle. These carriers of God’s Divine Presence have been willing to have the world removed from their soul come-what-may in order to gain the seven Spirits of God, so they can rule and reign throughout the earth. God needs them to break the strongholds that are crippling the earth.

The torn veil at Christ’s crucifixion re-instituted the original royal priesthood made in the Order of Melchizedek with Christ Jesus – the Lamb of God Himself – being its High Priest. In this Kingdom Day, we are taking a giant quantum leap forward, which God has prepared for us from the beginning of time. Truly, all that matters right now is your decision to set your heart like flint to let the world go. If what awaits you at the end of the path is manifest common union with Christ and the infilling of the fullness of Jesus Christ, isn’t it worth it?!

Through this great royal priesthood, the Lord will birth the “Bridal Company” in the earth that conforms to the Living Word and the Spirit of Christ. Right now the Order of Melchizedek is beginning to march throughout the earth, as the predecessor of the Bride. Won’t you join us in selling out all for Jesus?!

“Now the just shall live by faith : but if any man draw back, My soul shall have no pleasure in him [note: God has a soul]. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the POSSESSING of the soul” (Hebrews 10:38-39).

POSSESS = Strong’s NT:4047 peripoiēsis – a preservation : possession, one’s own property : an obtaining : acquisition : saving.

References: Genesis 14:18; Psalm 110:4; Isaiah 9:7; 11:1-2; Hebrews 5:4-6; 6:19-20; 7:1-28; Revelation 4:5.
