GREAT EXPLOITS OF GREATER WORKS

Melchizedek Winged Woman Warrior

Did you know that Almighty God has a hand sandwich? Seriously! That’s what He told me! It’s like the Father and the Son (made up of the Mature Head Messiah Yeshua and His Mature Body — us) joining hands to do His greater works:

• “Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him GREATER WORKS than these, that you may marvel” (John 5:19-20 NKJV).

• “Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves. Most assuredly, I say to you, HE WHO BELIEVES IN ME, THE WORKS THAT I DO HE WILL DO ALSO; AND GREATER WORKS THAN THESE HE WILL DO, because I go to My Father” (John 14:11-12 NKJV).

In this Kingdom Day, sons of righteousness will do great exploits of greater works for the King of Kings. Recall from the previous MELCHIZEDEK ARISING post that the Hebrew word ‘arak (ORDER) holds valuable keys about how the Corporate One New Man in Christ (those of the Order of Melchizedek) operates. Please note that the Corporate One New Man in Christ is composed of mature or maturing sons, and one of the places that the Order of Melchizedek operates out of is the Tabernacle of David.

The next Scripture that we will look at that contains ‘arak ORDER is the chapter of First Samuel 17. It’s major that ‘arak is used three times in this chapter (1 Samuel 17: 2, 8, 21). Pay attention when something is repeated three times in Scripture, because God is pointing to what is solid, real, essential, perfect, substantial, complete and divine. Each occurrence of ‘arak ORDER in First Samuel 17 speaks of “the battle in array (i.e. order),” which significantly points to the wings of God’s End-Time Melchizedek Army flying by the Spirit with one another. Every time that I have been involved in a Group Ascension involving Melchizedek there has been a militant aspect to it. Did you know that His kings and priests are Reigning Ones who are also His flaming fire army (Revelation 1:4-6; Revelation 5:8-10; Joel 2:1-5; Psalms 104:3-4)?

David’s battle with Goliath is the highlight of First Samuel 17. Even though Yeshua is the Pattern Son for the Order of Melchizedek, King David is a very important prototype of a prophet, priest and king (Psalms 110:4), so take notice when David is on the scene – whether you are reading about David or something he wrote in the book of Psalms. For IT’S TIME FOR THE RESTORATION OF THE TABERNACLE OF DAVID!!!

• “ ‘After these things I will return, And I will rebuild the Tabernacle (Tent) of David which has fallen, and I will rebuild its ruins, And I will restore it, so that the rest of mankind may seek YHVH , and all the Gentiles who are called by My name,’ says YHVH, who makes things known from long ago” (Acts 15:16).

• “A Psalm of David. O YHVH, who may abide in Your tent? Who may dwell on Your holy hill? He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness, and speaks truth in his heart” (Psalm 15:1-2 NASB).

Most of us are familiar with the story of David and Goliath. Let’s see a fresh new perspective looking through the lens of David being a prototype of the One New Man in the Messiah (Christ) according to the Order of Melchizedek.

Let’s first paint a picture of the enemy personified in Goliath and other Philistines in Scripture. I asked LOVE for insight into the Philistine Spirit, and right before I sat down to write this article, He asked me to sleep a little while longer and He gave me a prophetic dream. This dream portrayed the Philistine Spirit as a glitzy system seducing people with the pleasures of this world. My Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines a Philistine as a person who is guided by materialism. In the dream, the seduction came in the form of a piece of decadent chocolate cake that was being offered in the midst of an exquisite 5-star restaurant that was somehow associated with a gorgeous hunk of a man. Once a person took the cake bait, this Philistine System used drunkenness and more lust to entrap them. It was an extremely difficult state to wake-up from, let alone break free from. Those who did resist the lusts of the eyes, the lusts of the flesh and the lusts of the world found themselves on the receiving end of a system that tries to ruin their lives. Some even were driven inconsolably mad. Those who succeed in breaking free of the worldly seduction found themselves intimidated with threats of death and were extorted financially. At the finale of my dream, I had to take authority over some vicious dogs that the Philistine Spirit loosed to hunt us down. BTW – When Goliath first saw the chosen man of Israel, he looked upon him with disdain and remarked: “Am I a dog, that you come to me with sticks?” and Goliath cursed the man after God’s own heart by his Babylonian gods (1 Samuel 17:43).

The Corporate One New Man in Christ is the chosen man to fight this giant worldly system. They will rise up early after a time of testing according to their Father’s command (1 Samuel 17:16,20). They will be sons who feed their Father’s sheep manna at the House of Bread (1 Samuel 17:15). In this Kingdom Day, the promise to the Corporate One New Man who spiritually conquers and kills the Philistine Champion is that they will received great riches from the King Himself, they will be free in Israel (Is-real), and then they will be given the King’s daughter – the Bride of Christ – which also can mean that these ones actually become Christ’s Bride.

Even though Abraham and Isaac agreed to a covenant of kindness with Abimelech the King of the Philistines, the Philistines were a recurring threat and became an arch-enemy of Israel (Genesis 21, 26).

In the Tabernacle of David, the Corporate One New Man of the Order of Melchizedek will draw near the uncircumcised (faithless) Philistine with His shepherd staff and His sling in his hands with five smooth stones of grace taken from the place of being washed by the water of the word (1 Samuel 17:40; Ephesians 5:26). Remember that the Blood of Yeshua cleanses us from sin while the applied Word of God cleanses us from the world. The Philistine Giant will arise and come near to meet the Corporate One New Man in personal combat. As the Davidic Order of Melchizedek in our day runs toward the army to meet the Philistine, he will sling a stone to strike this Giant of the World. It will strike this uncircumcised Philistine in the forehead, and our foe will fall on his face to the earth like Dagon did before the Ark of the Covenant (1 Samuel 5:4).

This singular stone isn’t any old stone. The Hebrew word for stone is even. It is akin to two Hebrew words av for father and ben for son. It carries the nuance of the Father AND the Son. Basically, this stone that kills the giant of the world communicates the reality of when you see the Father, you see the Son, and vice versa.

The Corporate One New Man’s defeat of this faithless Philistine is so that all the earth may know that Yah is in Israel. When the Mighty Man of Valor – David – killed the one that all of Israel was afraid of, the king sent for him and asked him one question: “WHOSE SON ARE YOU?” This is the question being asked of God’s people today. David answered: “I am the son of your servant Jesse the Bethlehemite” (1 Samuel 17:58).

If we break the phrase “Jesse the Bethlehemite” down in Hebrew, it means the substance of the House of Bread. Therefore, David’s declaration that “I am the son of your servant Jesse the Bethlehemite” is HERALDING A TRUTH FOR OUR DAY THAT THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK IN THE TABERNACLE OF DAVID WILL LITERALLY MANIFEST THE SUBSTANCE OF THE HOUSE OF BREAD.

I dug a little deeper by looking at the Ancient Hebrew Word Picture for the name “Jesse.” When I first saw the Hebrew letters yood-shin-yood, my first thought was shin is the letter that represents El Shaddai (i.e., The Almighty One). Then I contemplated that the Hebrew letter “yood” is a picture of a hand, and symbolizes to work or a deed done. What drew my attention is that the letter “yood” appears on each side of the shin. That’s when LOVE spoke to me about the Son of Jesse shows us the picture of the Almighty having a hand sandwich. It’s the personification of John 5:19: “the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.”

When I looked into the other spelling for “Jesse” in Hebrew (yood-shin-alef), another Ancient Hebrew Word Picture forms, which dovetails with the Hebrew word for “stone.” Being a son of Jesse speaks of the Father and the Son (His Mature Head Yeshua connected to His Mature Body) joining hands to go great exploits of greater works. These aren’t any old works, but completed faith like Abraham where one’s works lined up with one’s faith (James 2:22). It’s time to do the GREATER WORKS people!!! In this Kingdom Day, the Order of Melchizedek will do exactly what they see their Father doing bringing heavenly realities to earth. Through Him who sits on the throne, we will reign on earth; and through faithfully following Him, we will do great exploits of greater works.

“Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but THE PEOPLE WHO KNOW THEIR GOD SHALL BE STRONG, AND CARRY OUT GREAT EXPLOITS” (Daniel 11:32 NKJV).

ASCENSION DELIVERANCE

bride-water-red-carpet

Ascension Deliverance is the type of deliverance that Yeshua (i.e. Jesus) did. Yeshua only did what He heard and saw His Father doing according to the perfect will of the Father:

“Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He SEES the Father do: for what things soever He does, these also does the Son likewise” (John 5:19).

“I can of mine own self do nothing: as I HEAR, I judge: and My judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent Me” (John 5:30).

In this Kingdom Day, there’s a quantum leap happening in the area of deliverance for those operating after the Order of Melchizedek under the guidance of our High Priest – Messiah Yeshua. Not only do we see the Head of the Body of Christ hearing and seeing what to do according to the perfect will of the Father, but so is His Mature Body.

Around 2000 years ago, our Pattern Son stood up in His hometown to read the book of Isaiah on the Sabbath: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord” (Luke 4:18-19). When Yeshua finished this reading, He closed the book, gave it back to the minister, and sat down. It says in Luke 4:20 that “the eyes of all them … were fastened on Him.” Then Yeshua said: “This day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears.”

Today, in this prophetic seventh day (i.e., Sabbath) another Messenger who brings good news and announces salvation is rising. The 11Q13 section of the Dead Sea Scrolls tells us that this agent of salvation, who proclaims the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, is Melchizedek. When I mention the term “Melchizedek” in this article, please think of the High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek first and foremost; and then, also the Melchizedek Company of His sons of righteousness who are also called His royal priesthood.

The section of the Dead Sea Scrolls that speaks of “The Coming of Melchizedek” mentions that the Melchizedek Messenger is anointed of the Spirit and comes with a message from God. Sometimes this message from God is a proclamation of jubilee to the captives (Isa 61:1). This is the Ascension Deliverance I speak of, which is one of the “greater works” Yeshua mentioned in John 14;12: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father” (John 14:12).

I have been taking part in Ascension Deliverance for awhile now. The amount of freedom (i.e., jubilee) I have seen has been so astounding that I stand in awe of Him every single time someone receives deliverance through ascension. Things that used to take months, years and even generations are literally happening in hours, as a group of His royal priests seek to simply hear and see the perfect will of the Father for the person(s) they seek deliverance for.

I have to revise something I wrote in the PURPOSE OF GROUP ASCENSIONS article (see below). I said: “A person must first be repentant and want to change (do away with their sin); and then, come-what-may they must hold onto to His Jubilee Truth for them. If either of these two items are missing, it’s best not to spend a group’s time helping that individual until they are willing to hold onto their jubilee.” Even though I believe that repentance and tenacity are still key to someone being set free, I saw something yesterday that still breaks me deep down inside due to the Father’s exquisite goodness. Some people’s life’s circumstances have left them without hope and heart-broken in a very dark place. The Father sees them and weeps for His sons to be restored. I believe that our Heavenly Father is simply looking for some kings and priests seeking His heart and ready to lay their lives down for others.

Won’t you be part of the Congregation of the Sons of Righteousness who stand in the Council of God and sets captive free? Can you hear the Father calling? The Father is calling His Priesthood of One Love to transform the world.

ART: Freedom” by Cassiopeia Art

BROKENNESS OF ONE’S SOUL

Red Ancient Carrier Woman

Purification is a work of oneness. Just like Yeshua (Jesus), His Reigning Ones will be IN the Father, and the Father will be IN them. They will literally become holy, as He is holy.

We are continuing to explore the second crucifixion step in the Bride’s Baptism of Fire in this installment of HITTING THE BULL’S EYE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. Please recall that Melchizedek is the predecessor of the Bride, because we are going to hover here today (See Part 8 – FAITHFULNESS TEST).

We begin to see the Kingdom of God and become inducted into His Holy Royal Priesthood by grace through faith when they accept Yeshua as our Lord and Savior. This is also when His Kingdom Seed is planted within us, which is an incorruptible seed that’s planted deep within our souls. Just like a seed in any garden, the wisdom of God knows that in order for corruptible man to put on incorruption, the Kingdom Seed within the soul of a man is dropped in dirt, covered in darkness, and must struggle to reach the light of the shekinah glory in which it was originally created before the Fall.

After the initial gift of salvation, believers learn things of the Spirit by first making a decision, then growing by exercising that spiritual reality. I have heard people say: “I am born again, so Jesus fills my soul.” This is simply not true. I could go into a Biblical explanation of this, which I do in the FULLNESS articles below; but one merely needs to look at the behavior of most Christians to see the truth. The Spirit of the Living God fills your spirit and awakens it to God when one receives the gospel of salvation, but your soul is still under the dominion of sin nature (i.e. flesh). Since Yeshua will not live where sin exists, it is extremely important for us to partner with Him to cleanse our souls. Remember that the Bridal Baptism of Fire operates beyond both levels of salvation and sanctification in the area of purification. Co-crucifixion with Christ is the way of the second level of the Baptism of Fire, and it comes by obeying His Word of Truth to where the world is crucified to us and us unto the world.

“Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, because ‘All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass … But the word of the Lord endures forever.’ “ (1 Peter 1:22-25 NKJV).

“But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world” (Gal 6:14 NKJV).

The cross spoken of in Galatians 6:14 is the cross of the flesh where the world is crucified and where our souls are transformed by our death to our sin nature for the purpose of coming forth into resurrection life. The cross of the flesh transforms one’s soul. Matthew 16:24-26 speaks about someone who tries to gain the whole world, but loses his soul because he refuses to deny himself, take up his cross and follow Yeshua.

When Yeshua completely fills a person’s soul, they act like Him, talk like Him, and walk like Him, as He exhibited in the Word of God.

Let’s realize that seeing the Kingdom of God is not the same as procuring (inheriting) it (John 3:3; Gal 5:19-21). First and foremost, the Word of God is not simply some words on a piece of paper, but a person whose name is called “The Word of God” and on His thigh is written ”King of Kings and the Lord of Lord ” (Revelation 19:13-16). Royal priests know this, and they give honor where honor is due. Scripture also tell us that His Kingdom Seed is not only the “Word of the Kingdom,” but the “Word of God” (Matthew 13:19; Luke 8:11). The Bible shows us that we can hear, receive, and believe the Word of God; and even though the Word of God is called the Sword of the Spirit, we also can be quite passive about it. There is nothing passive about working out our own salvation with fear and trembling (i.e. sanctification) as well as our fiery purification process, which enables us to become set apart kingdom vessels.

Brokenness is the rule for this secondary level of purification… being humble and teachable are key. When we look at the three sections of God’s Wilderness Tabernacle made after a heavenly pattern, we see that there is a curtain that marks the boundaries of God’s Sanctuary (i.e., Dwelling Place), which is made up of both the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies. Please note that the Holy of Holies lies within the boundaries of the Holy Place. Since the Holy Place can be equated to a person’s soul and the Holy of Holies speaks of their spirit, we know that our spirit is housed within our soul.

When we take a revelatory peek into the Ancient Hebrew Word Picture for the word “curtain,” it communicates that the curtain of God’s Dwelling Place symbolically represents the highest and most important work to be done is the purification work in a person’s soul. Wow! That’s quite a statement!

Right now the Body of Christ is being called to abide in the place of Galatians 2:20 where our sinful nature is crucified in union with the Messiah, so we can literally live on this earth by the faith of the Son of God. Please note that the Melchizedek Company is made like unto the Son of God (Heb 7:3). We know that the Son of God refused to come off the cross (Matt 27:40), and so will Mel. We are currently being sifted again and again and again to get impurities out.

Yer-ee-aw is the Hebrew word for “curtain,” and speaks of a tremulous hanging or a hanging of the fear of the Lord. The Spirit of the Fear of the Lord enabled Yeshua to walk as ONE with His Heavenly Father. Due to the fear of the Lord residing within His soul, Yeshua literally loved what His Father loved, and hated what His Father hated. And so it will be with His kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek. When something is tremulous, it is characterized by or affected with trembling. Humility is a result of this shaking of everything that can be shaken. “Where is the place of My rest? … To this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembles at My word” (Isaiah 66:1-2).

As we dig a little bit deeper, we see that the primitive root to yer-ee-aw is the Hebrew word yaw-rah’, which means to be broken up (with any violent action). “ When brokenness occurs resistance, independence, and pride are replaced with submission, tenderness, obedience and love. To be broken is to come to the place where He is esteemed above self. Note: Each of us must willingly submit to (be a willful participant with) the Father in this process. Brokenness cracks open the hard shell of our sinful self nature to reveal the sons of the shekinah! Brokenness is an ancient pathway and main tool to prepare our souls for the filling up of the complete fullness of the Seven Spirits of God, which is how Jesus walked in the nature of Christ on earth.

Thank God that we have boldness to enter into the Holy of Holies in the heavenlies by the Blood of the Lamb, which is His incredibly wonderful Throne of Grace and a beloved relationship with Him after we accept His gift of salvation. There still remains a need to rend the veil that is currently between a believer’s soul and spirit due to The Fall, for those who desire to rule and reign with Him and do His greater works. We are told that when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away (2 Corinthians 3:16). Unequivocally, we are brought near by the cross through the blood of Christ. The crucifixion steps involved in the Bride’s Baptism of Fire is merely a deeper spiritual reality to this truth where each one of us needs to grow into being a holy temple for the Lord before we can corporately connect wholly in love.

The process, which tears the curtain (veil) that is currently between our soul and spirit, is a top-down, heaven-to-earth crucifixion process, which results with a person being clothed with the fear of the Lord. The division between our soul and spirit is now being broken down, so the Nature of Christ can possess our souls. Thus, on both an individual and corporate level, establishing peace by making the two (soul and spirit) One New Man in Christ (Ephesians 2:15).

People are now experiencing the Lord’s discipline as His mature sons in which the depths of our souls are being broken up with a violent agitation, so He can create a new heaven and a new earth within us, as He did in the beginning. “The Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force” (Matthew 11:12).

Do you desire to be a golden kingdom vessel filled with the Nature of Christ (i.e. Seven Spirits of God)? If so, then you ARE called to be one of His Reigning Ones, and you are probably experiencing or have experienced a deep work of crucifixion of your flesh (sin nature). Be encouraged. If you are struggling, it is because you truly desire to be formed into His very image. There is a HUGE test in our willingness to pay the price to die to ourselves, so that Christ may live in us in His fullness.

Please remember that LOVE meets us in our broken places. He is a good gardener who not only plants the good seed of His Kingdom, but He works to till the soil of our hearts, so we may receive a 100-fold return in all we do, as unto the King. At this time, resurrection life is still being released to you and I in sprout form for whosoever will.

GOLDEN GATE OF MIRACLES

Golden Gate New Jerusalem
An Ancient Golden Gate of Thanksgiving and Awe has been prepared for this special season of lights, miracles and dedicating our temples to walk as Yeshua (Jesus) did. For those who choose to enter into Chanukah, there’s a greater grace given to become one with Him, as His pure and spotless Bride, as well as it being a door to a life that’s full of signs, wonders and miracles. If you need a creative miracle, it can be found in the Winter One-dear-land where Yeshua walked in Solomon’s Colonnade.

The name “Feast of Miracles” is another term for Chanukah. When anyone asks why a Christian would celebrate Chanukah, the simplest and most direct answer is that Yeshua did. “Jesus gave them this answer: ‘I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by Himself; he can do only what He sees His Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does’” (John 5:19). So when Yeshua celebrated Chanukah on earth, significantly, His Heavenly Father participated also. Stop and really think about that. Our precious Heavenly Father not only approved of Chanukah, but joined in the festivities. In fact, the days of Chanukah were designated as festivals of praise and thanksgiving, because the His people recognized the annual return of the same kind of spiritual force that resulted in the original miracle.

The only direct reference to Chanukah in Scripture is John 10:22-23: “Then came the Feast of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter and Jesus was in the temple area walking in Solomon’s Colonnade.” Not only is Chanukah called the Feast of Miracles, but it’s also called the Feast of Lights and Feast of Dedication. Today, we are zeroing in on MIRACLES.

Jesus walked in Solomon’s Colonnade during the feast of Chanukah declaring His miraculous works plainly revealed that He was the Messiah. Israel’s priests had previously concluded that when they heard the testimony of someone being healed of the incurable disease of leprosy, it would be an obvious sign of the Messiah… that He had come. And not only that, but the Messiah would also restore the sight of someone born blind. The lame born lame would walk. When John the Baptist asked Jesus: Are you the One? Yeshua sent back the message: Tell John the blind see, the leper is cleansed, the lame walk and the captives are set free (Matthew 11:4-5). These and even greater works believers are still called to do.

How many of these miracles happen today? How many have you personally seen? DID YOU KNOW THAT THE CHURCH, UNIVERSALLY, WAS A SUPERNATURAL COMMUNITY PRIOR TO THE PAGAN FEAST BEING INTEGRATED INTO THE CHURCH’S CALENDAR? We’ll go into how the assimilation of pagan feasts mixed the holy with the profane in God’s eyes and moved His manifest dwelling presence (evidenced by miracles) from His Sanctuary in a future post. For now, simply note that the first recorded evidence of Christmas actually taking place on December 25th isn’t found until the time of Constantine in 336 A.D.

For the first 300 years, nothing resembling Christmas existed in the Christian Church’s calendar. The Church followed the pattern established by the apostles. They experienced a life and a power the world could not comprehend. Christ’s Church, in its primal form, celebrated the Lord’s Feasts. Daily, even several times a day, miracles occurred. Jesus set precedence when He walked in Solomon’s Colonnade during the Feast of Miracles declaring the miracles done by God’s kingdom had come upon them.

Significantly, Solomon’s Colonnade was not only the place associated with miracles, but it was also the place ALL the believers met (Acts 5:12). It’s the place where His apostles performed many miracles, signs, and wonders among the people (Acts 3:11); but one might miss this fact, because Solomon’s Colonnade was on the east side of God’s Temple and sometimes the writers of Scripture referred to the Eastern Gate instead of Solomon’s Colonnade. Just like Chanukah, the Eastern Gate of Jerusalem has three names: [1] Eastern Gate, [2] Beautiful Gate, and [3] Golden Gate. This is the place where Yeshua returns: “For just as the lightning come from the east, and flashes even to the west, so shall the coming of the Son of Man be (Matt. 24:27 NASB). I believe this is a picture for us now spiritually with a future physical manifestation of Yeshua returning as well.

Recall that there’s a flaming sword, which turns every which way, to keep the way to the Tree of Life (Gen. 3:24). The flame of the sword alludes to lightning coming from the east and from His throne (Rev. 4:5). This flaming sword is the All-Consuming Fire who’s name is the Word of God that is truly able to as judge the thoughts and intents of our heart (Heb. 4:12).

Now is the time to open up our ancient golden gates, so the King of Glory can come in (Psa. 24:7). This is the Kingdom Day to worship God His way. This is the Kingdom Day where His set apart people will cleanse their temples, and will operate in signs, wonders and miracles as a result. God’s people need to first deal with the mixture that was brought into the church that cut it off from its holy and pure connection to its power supply. If you want to be part of His pure and spotless Bride and operate in her naturally supernatural state, you will have to pass through His gateway of awe that rids us of all mixture in His sight.

CHANUKAH DEVOTION FOR NIGHT 4:

Yeshua walked in Solomon’s Colonnade during the Feast of Miracles declaring the miracles done by God’s kingdom had come upon them. All the passages that speak of Solomon’s Colonnade tell us it’s a place of miracles and where all believers met.

Solomon’s Colonnade is also called Solomon’s Porch. It was built by Solomon on the east side of the temple. From this side, the glory is supposed to fill God’s temple. A porch or portico is a covered area adjoining an entrance to a building and usually has a separate roof. Spiritually speaking, it represents the place where a believer already has entered the temple (i.e., a relationship with God), but not the building (i.e., become a permanent dwelling place for God). I believe that the celebration of Chanukah holds several keys for end-time believers.

Chanukah is celebrated in winter when things look asleep, just as all ten virgins in Matthew 25 were asleep because “the Bridegroom was a long time in coming” (Matt. 25:5). By the way, both the wise and foolish virgins are representative of believers.

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

[1] Discuss what it means to walk with Yeshua in Solomon’s Colonnade in the winter.

[2] How would you like to see miracles manifest through Christ in you?

[3] What are your thought about Solomon’s Colonnade being the place where all believers meet?

It covers every argument that you have ever heard about Christmas.

BRAZEN BELIEVERS – Heaven Meets Earth – Part 1 (Heaven’s Will)

 Heaven & Earth

HEAVEN MEETS EARTH

Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. Brazen believers are a place where heaven meets earth. Symbolically, we can catch a glimpse of this reality in the brazen or bronze (i.e., copper) items that were in the Mosaic tabernacle.

All the brazen furnishings symbolize the place where heaven meets earth.  God meets man. Think about the earth being God’s footstool (Isaiah 66:1), and when the apostle John saw Jesus in the Spirit on the Lord’s day “His feet were like burnished bronze” (Rev 1:15). The Church is Jesus’ Body and that Body has its feet bound “with the preparation of the gospel of peace” (Ephesians 6:15). When we walk through our daily lives and reflect the radiance of God’s glory (the character of Jesus), God touches the earthly realm through us.

In the Greek, “bronze” in the burnished bronze feet of Jesus’ is the word chalkolibanon, which is a compound word made up of chalkos and libanos. From chalkos we get the idea of the hollowing out of a vessel for this glowing metal was chiefly used for that purpose. Its primary root word is chasma, which means to lower into a void or a gaping chasm. Jesus bridged the gulf between heaven and earth (God and man) “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him” (John 3:17). As we let Jesus have His way in our lives by working out our salvation with fear and trembling (Phil 2:12-13), our lives are cleansed so we may pour out His presence, to a lost and dying world “for in Him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28 NIV). Through Christ in you the hope of glory (Col 1:27), heaven touches earth.

The word libanos means the incense tree (i.e., frankincense), and by implication the incense itself. Revelation 5:8 says that the incense in the golden bowls are “the prayers of the saints” and much incense was given to an angel at the altar so he could “add it to the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne” (Rev 8:3-4). I believe this is a picture of the mixing of things that originated on earth with those originating in heaven — prayer.

Frankincense’s primary root means to become white, which additionally communicates the idea of purity. Incense is the material used to produce a fragrant odor when burned. It’s a pleasing scent to God and it causes passion or emotion to become aroused. Another word for a pleasing fragrance is “savor.” The Hebrew verb for savor is ruach. It’s the word for “Spirit,” as in the Holy Spirit. It means to blow or breathe, to smell, and figuratively, it means to joyfully anticipate. Jesus “breathed on” his disciples, “and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit” (John 20:22). This makes sense for the primary verb for incense is thuo meaning to rush (breathe hard, blow, smoke), by implication it means to sacrifice by fire. “They were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent, rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit …” (Acts 2:1-4).

What a picture! Yeshua’s [1] glowing bronze feet have a dual meaning in this context:

[1] Jesus personally coming to earth for the purpose of bridging the gap between God and man, not only the first time, but also today through you and I.  Jesus tells His followers that the Kingdom of God is near. It is within you (Matt 10:7; Luke 10:9,11).

 

[2] The purified, Holy Spirit inspired groans and prayers of the saints (Rom 8:26-27; Eph 6:18). These are two places where heaven touches earth.

In April of 1998,[2] Cindy Jacobs mentioned that she believed that there is one body, one church in heaven and earth. I agree. Eternal life for believers necessitates that the body of Christ be one, as Jesus and the Father is one. Christ’s body, the church, is united in heaven and on earth. One of the prevalent pictures I received while studying “bronze” in Scripture was unity. The church is already united in the heavenly realm; therefore, what remains is unity here on earth.  I believe we will find some of the keys to uniting the earthly church with the heavenly one by looking at copper in the Mosaic tabernacle.

BRAZEN ALTAR – HEAVEN’S WILL

Yeshua, the perfect propitiation for sin, is mankind’s bridge to God. All furnishings in the tabernacle (i.e., tent of meeting) are different pictures of Jesus’ ministry on earth. The bronze furnishings — the Brazen Altar and Brazen Laver — are no exceptions. Jesus’ blood atones and washes away the sins of the world. Objectively, once for all, and subjectively, as you apply it to your life when you confess Jesus as Lord, and believe God raised Him from the dead (Rom 10:9-10).

Our New Testament brazen altars are our hearts. That was true of the Old Testament Brazen Altar also. The sacrifices were meant to point man to God, to rededicate their hearts to God. Unfortunately, the sacrifices (things that were seen) became the focus instead of the point to the exercise – relationship with the living God. God knows we must guard our hearts in Christ Jesus to make relationship with God a reality. Psalm 24:3-4 tells us that only those who have clean hands and a pure heart can have relationship with the Lord.

The one called the “father to all who believe” had a very close personal relationship with the Lord. Abraham was 137 years old when his faith was tested when God asked him to take his dearly loved son up Mount Moriah and offer him as a living sacrifice. It gives us a new perspective on Isaac’s willingness when we understand that he was 36 years old at the time. It is at the mountain of God’s choice that Abraham was directed to offer Isaac as a burnt offering.

The Word of God tells us of at least three virtues in our lives that have eternal substance: faith, hope, and love (1 Corinthians 13:13).When God tested Abraham, He was accessing Abraham’s character to see if these and other eternal qualities abided in him. Just as Abraham’s walk was tested to see if it matched his talk, so will ours.

To comprehend why God asked Abraham to offer Isaac as a burnt offering, we need to delve into the ancient Hebrew understanding of burnt offerings provided for us in the first chapter of the book of Leviticus. The book opens with the first revelation in the new Tabernacle, which had been built with their own contributions as a place where God’s shekinah glory (i.e., His dwelling presence) would rest among His people. They were made aware of their responsibility of maintaining a high level of holiness.

By the way, no other book in the Bible is so full of divine utterance as the book of Leviticus. Moreover, the Hebrew canon for the book we call Leviticus has the divine title “HE CALLED.” For the people in Moses’ day, its directions left nothing to the imagination. God was very specific in how He wanted/wants to be worshipfully approached. The content of Leviticus expresses the divine will of our heavenly Father for those who desires to worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:23).

That Leviticus is the third book of the Bible speaks of it being stamped with completeness. For instance, the phrase “I AM Jehovah” occurs 21 times in the entire book, which emphasizes that Leviticus is marked with completeness, but it additionally proclaims that within Leviticus are keys to the complete plan of God for spiritual perfection. There’s a holy, awesomeness that accompanies His name Jehovah, for it’s the ineffable name of God – He’s incapable of being expressed in words (i.e., indescribable).

Unfortunately, most Christians have dismissed, minimized or ignored this very important slice of the word that endures forever. It’s been an enigma to most, if not all, of us. We are confused because we no longer do temple sacrifices. Or do we? This is the day where devout hearts need to sit up and take notice of this unique book that almost wholly consists of the words of Jehovah, where “HE CALLED” us to worship Him according to His will and ways. This is the day when we will worship God His way.

The rest of this Brazen Altar section endeavors to unseal Leviticus chapter 1 for Christians and examines what is required when anyone wants to bring a worshipful offering to the Lord. First, let’s note that the only name of God used in connection with offerings is Adonai. This name represents His attribute of mercy. The Hebraic root of the word “offering” means to come near. As mentioned previously, any type of offering is meant to bring oneself closer to God. Additionally, the Hebrew word for “burnt” is olah, which literally means going up; therefore, we can see that a burnt offering is brought by a person who wants to go up and draw near to God.

When a person sincerely offers themselves or anything they dearly love – especially their own way — to the Lord for the purpose of drawing close, they spiritually go up to meet with the God of mercy personally to His throne of grace. “This is what the LORD says, ‘I will restore the fortunes of Jacob’s tents and have compassion on his dwellings … I will bring him near and he will come close to me, for who is he who will devote himself to be close to me?’ ” (Jeremiah 30:18; 21 NIV).

The burnt offering is also called by another name — the elevation offering, As its name 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 (required by everyone who was part of God’s holy nation). The Hebrew prophets spoke that in the end times, all the nations will be coming to Jerusalem — going up physically and/or spiritually and they will take part in building the temple. Don’t forget that you are meant to be God’s dwelling place.

The elevation offering (i.e., burnt offering) in the Old Testament days was considered to be superior to all others, because it was a voluntary sacrifice and it was offered in its entirety. The word “unblemished” in Leviticus 1:3 symbolizes a person coming close to God with nothing missing. All one’s faculties are wholly engaged. When a person brought his burnt offering to the priests (i.e., Kohanim), he was required to lean his hand on the head of his sacrifice. Actually, one had to literally lay both hands on the animal’s head and then confess his sin or shortcoming. Leaning both hands on one’s sacrifice alludes to leaning on the Lord with your entire strength. Loving God with all your strength is synonymous with loving God vehemently, wholly, exceedingly, diligently, utterly. It is the highest form of love and is equated to one’s resources spent according to the perfect will of God… literally being spent on Him.

The burnt offering was the very first service performed by Aaron’s descendants — the Kohanim — in God’s wilderness tabernacle.  Anyone could slaughter an animal for sacrifice, but it took the descendants of the High Priest to receive the shed blood and transport it to the Brazen Altar. It’s interesting that even though there was a heavenly fire always on the altar, the Kohanim were commanded to add an earthly fire. Once the Kohanim arranged all the cut up parts on the fire, they tended the fire until the sacrifice was totally consumed. As a side, the smoke that rises up to God from the burnt offering is a symbol of the owner’s striving, and the Lord tells us that it pleases Him (Leviticus 1:9).

In our day of grace, God’s people, who become a royal priesthood through their reception of the gift of the shed blood of the Lamb, receive forgiveness for their shortcomings once they sincerely confess their sin. We bypass animal sacrifices because Jesus Christ (Yeshua ha Mashiach) offered up the perfect sacrifice of His earthly body once for all. Yeshua became our burnt offering on the cross, and Jesus’ Bride will be like Him. The spiritual principle behind the burnt offering that remains true even today is “Behold, I have come to do Thy will” (Psalms 40:7-8; Hebrews 10:7). It’s all about doing heaven’s will via sacrificing your own will on God’s altar of purification.

The fulfillment of the picture of the burnt offering in our day according to the fresh dispensation we are now operating under – “summing up of all things in Christ” (Ephesians 1:10) – is the baptism of fire that the Bride of Christ will come through to literally become the Lord’s pure and spotless Bride. God’s baptism of fire will burn off anything that is not of Him or in Him. Be encouraged, because He knows the way each one of us takes, and we will come forth as gold (Job 23:10).  Christ’s Bride will live and move in His divine will – the perfect will of heaven on earth. She will act as Jesus did. “And by this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments… but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought to walk in the same manner as He walked” (1 John 2:3,5-6).

Classically, the Brazen Altar has symbolized divine judgment. Before you freak out, please understand that the Hebrew word for “judge” is dan, and its pictograph reveals that the judge is the door of life – Jesus (i.e., Yeshua). Our Great High Priest is the One who sympathizes with our weaknesses and encourages us to draw near with confidence to His throne of grace so we can receive mercy and find grace to help in a time of need (Hebrews 4:14-16).

Most Christians rightfully and whole-heartedly tout this truth, but please let’s quit cheapening His glorious grace. You’ve seen it. I’ve done it. A person sins over and over again with the supposed safety net that we know God will forgive us. I believe that this mentality is pervasive throughout Christianity. So what should we do with this Scripture? “For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain terrifying expectation of judgment, and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries. Anyone who set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy in the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace?” (Hebrews 10:26-29). God actually handles unintentional sin differently than willful sin.

All divine judgment, while we live on earth, is ultimately meant for the purpose of “I am” making us one. Psalms 19 tells us that the “judgments of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether … more desirable than gold … sweeter also than honey … by them Thy servant is warned.” The only way we can discern some of our “hidden faults” and “presumptuous sins” (Psalms 19:12-13) is to let the living and active word of God rightly divide what is soul and what is spirit (Hebrews 4:12). The purifying effects of being washed by the water of the word (Ephesians 5:26) allows us to be an exact re-presentation of the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6).

Don’t forget that we are not alone — the Spirit of the Living God divinely assists us in our path to perfection. The way we become perfected into the image of One – His very image – is to let the fear of the Lord and the divine judgments of His Word have their way in each one of us. By the way, the fear of the Lord is not only the beginning of knowledge and wisdom (Proverbs 1:7; 9:10), but it also allows us to love what he loves and hate what He hates. Remember that it’s a good and faithful son that accepts His Father’s discipline, because he knows that his daddy loves him and is helping him to be the best person that he can be (Deuteronomy 8:56; Romans 8:14). Also, it is the sons of God that are led by the Spirit of God (Romans 8:14), and they inherit God’s Kingdom (Galatians 4:7).

The Baptism of Fire (Matthew 3:11) being released upon the earth in our day is a quantum leap above and beyond what we have known for the past 1,700 years. Get ready folks because people will actually manifest being “holy as He is holy” (1 Peter 1:16; Leviticus 11:44). By the way, when God says, “You shall be holy, for I am holy,” it’s not a suggestion but an exhortation (an actual command).  Even though authentic holiness has been rare, it will be a reality of those who will do the “greater works” (John 14:12). Bridal lovers of God will surrender their ways for His. They will recognize practices and beliefs that the Church has sanctioned as “holy,” which are not. These lovers of the Spirit and Truth will recognize what actually pleases Adonai, and then they adjust accordingly, come what may. The Word of God together with the Holy Spirit will be our guide, which is at least a partial realization of the picture that the fire that consumes the burnt offering is first and foremost a heavenly fire. Our voluntary offering to give up our own (earthly) desires and practices will combine with heaven’s fiery perfect will. Like the smoke that rises up from any burnt offering, our total surrender to the All-Consuming Fire will be one of our most pleasing sacrifices as well as one of our most satisfying services.

Author’s Note

This is the day when God is unearthing treasures previously kept in darkness and uncovering hidden wealth previously kept in secret places. “I will go before you and make the rough places smooth; I will shatter the doors of bronze, and cut through the iron bars. I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden wealth of secret places, in order that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name” (Isaiah 45:2-3). The Lord our God is unlocking the chambers of His vast treasure house, which speak of mysteries that have been in His heart for eternity. He’s opening the heights of the heavens and the depths of the earth.

One of these treasures of the deep is the understanding of the Biblical concepts associated with copper. Although my New American Standard Bible uses the word “bronze,” in Hebrew it actually means copper. This pamphlet is not an exhaustive study, but a tool meant to give you insight and draw you closer to the Lord. We will specifically focus on the picture copper reveals to us as it functioned in the Mosaic (Wilderness) Tabernacle, representing various parts of the Church.

Copper wireIt is significant that copper is the most conductive material on earth next to silver due to it having a free electron in its outer electron ring. Copper’s free electron exchanges freely with other conductive elements. In this study, we will see how Brazen Believers should naturally have a part of them that freely exchanges with other conductive materials — those made in God’s image — for that is what our heavenly Father does. We are to be wise, yet be as pure, transparent, vulnerable, sincere, and genuine as possible with others around us.

Technically, bronze is a metal alloy of copper and tin (sometimes other elements), which history records ancient man began using sometime between 4000-3000 BC. I am purposely using the word “bronze” to directly associate the Brazen Altar and Brazen Laver with Brazen Believers. I am also purposely using the word “brazen.” Brazen means to be made of brass, a harsh and loud sound like struck brass, or marked by contemptuous boldness. Believe it or not, a study of the redemptive qualities of brazen is quite rewarding; but for now let’s just focus on the idea of contemptuous boldness. Contemptuous is a state of being despised and lacking respect. Christians are to be in the world, not of it; and Jesus said we will be hated, rejected and despised by the world, just as He was. The Bible also says “because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access (an unreserved approach to God  with freedom and without fear)” (Ephesians 3:12 AMPL). Brazen Believers boldly approach God’s throne of grace. We need to be broken enough before God to speak the truth boldly and not participate with evil motives and intentions. Without brokenness (our flesh being in the heavenly brazier), boldness is simply pride.

Brazen Believers ultimately will only see themselves though Jesus. They will literally communicate with God, like Moses did, spirit to spirit  — face to face.
