PRACTICAL KEYS TO UNLOCKING MELCHIZEDEK – PART 6 – ORDER SPEAKS

Sword Dove Frequency

The basic essence of the Order of Melchizedek can be boiled down to the words “order” and “Melchizedek.” Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised that I haven’t heard about the “ORDER” in Melchizedek before, but I am.

Come! Let’s see what the most important path for God’s family is. This most ancient ORDER in “the Order of Melchizedek” reveals the highest way of life for a person who moves in and out of His house. BTW – I just articulated the Ancient Hebrew Word Picture (Pictograph) for the word “order.”

The word “order” in the “Order of Melchizedek is the Hebrew word דִּבְרָה dibrah, which occurs 5 times in Scripture. Its first and fundamental definition is literally “a word.” When we couple this fact with the first declaration of the “Order of Melchizedek” was made in the Tabernacle of David, we put two practical keys in our pocket that helps unlock the mystery of His Kingdom involving Melchizedek:

“The LORD has sworn and will not relent, “You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek” (Psalm 110:4 NKJV).

So he swayed the hearts of all the men of Judah, JUST AS THE HEART OF ONE MAN, so that they sent this word to the king: “Return, you and all your servants!” (2 Samuel 19:14 NKJV)

Please allow me to explain. The fourth time that dibrah is used in the Word of God is in Ecclesiastes 7:17 – “In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after Him.” I am using this obscure verse, because it’s a great illustration of the Order of Melchizedek being A WORD.

I don’t know about you, but the LORD has set one person after another over me that I felt was against me. Be encouraged. When God sets one over against the other, it is for the purpose of the end of that man or woman, so that they find NOTHING. Say what? It sounds strange that a person will find NOTHING until we study “nothing” in Scripture. Primeval earth was hung on nothing (Job 26:7), and so is the dust of your earth, which is the primordial state of a person’s soul (Genesis 2:7). James 1:2-4 tells us that the trying of a person’s faith, especially by someone who is over and against them, is a perfect work of patience, which leaves a Melchizedek Candidate perfect and entire, wanting NOTHING.

If you want to discover some secret keys about Melchizedek that are hidden in plain sight, study “nothing” in Scripture and the concepts associated with it. For instance, NOTHING concerns priests of the Order of Melchizedek who sprang out of Judah – the Throne of David (Hebrews 7:13-14).

Please bear with me as we blow a few erroneous paradigms away, because if we do not “get” the first and fundamental concept that the Order of Melchizedek is a word and understand its basic application, we will miss the highest way of life for God’s family and it’s most important ancient path.

Since Yeshua was baptized with fire on the cross, we have been taught that “the law made nothing perfect” (Hebrews 7:19), which is true… but now we are making a quantum leap to the other side of His double-edge sword. Consider that our primordial souls were created in His image as perfect before the Fall; therefore, we can say in a sense that NOTHING IS PERFECT. BTW – I can prove this through Scripture, but I am going to let you search this out for yourself.

We are told in Hebrew 7:15-16 that after the visible likeness of Melchizedek arises another priest who is made after the power of an endless life – eternal life. Then before we are told “the law made nothing perfect,” we are told of the “disannulling of the commandment going before” (Hebrews 7:18). This “disannulling” phrase stopped me in my tracks, because it appeared to contradict some other things I had just studied. Please see FULFILLMENT IS A PLACE OF REST => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/05/21/fulfillment-is-a-place-of-rest/.

Suffice it to say that when we boil “disannulling” down to its root and consult the entirety of Scripture, Christians can understand that we have inherited lies, which have been carried over from the Nicene Council in the 4th Century. You may say: What’s this have to do with me? If you are called to be part of His Melchizedek and Bridal Companies, a lot!!! When Christianity began to be institutionalized in the 4th century, it was their modus operandi to indiscriminately mix the holy with the profane. In order for the Institutional Church to get away with this at the time, they told its members that the “old” way of the law was done away with, which was a slight twist of a righteous real. BTW – Nancy Coen teaches that “wicked” means a slight twisting of a righteous real.

“Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: Yea, we establish the law” (Romans 3:31).

The realm of the Spirit is entirely based on the Word of God, and we move in the spiritual realm through our faith in what God has spoken. (See https://www.facebook.com/SapphireThroneMinistries/posts/10201872085745449?notif_t=like.) When the manifested sons of God of a wing of His Melchizedek Army ascend and descend on the Son of Man – Yeshua – to see heavenly things, they are experiencing His word with the purpose of being made ONE with it here on earth, as it is in heaven.

The GRACE that much of Institutional Christianity said did away with the law is also based on God’s Word – crucified, buried, and risen. The One who walked full of Grace and Truth demonstrated for us a perfect life that was contrary to the demands of “religion.” Yeshua (Jesus) transcended the law by living a life in the fullness of love. He even told us: “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17 NKJV). Please note that “fulfill” is the opposite of abolishing or doing away with something.

There are two roots to the word “disannul” or “disannulling.” The first root communicates the sense of union while the second root speaks of a horizontal and passive posture of rest as well as various worship stances. This worship-filled rest picture is punctuated with the concepts of intimacy, conceiving and being made into the image of the Messiah.

“For the law made nothing perfect. The Order of Melchizedek will perfectly know, as I am perfectly known (1 Corinthians 13:12).

The power of an endless life is articulated in John 17:2 “This is eternal life, that they may know Thee.” That word “know” comes from the translation of a Jewish idiom for sexual intercourse between a man and a woman. The Hebrew word “yadah” points to this most intimate relationship. It’s the word used when “Adam experienced Eve” or “Adam knew Eve.” (See https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=643586769047154&set=a.436008649804968.101323.436004819805351&type=1&theater.)

This higher degree of intimacy IS the better covenant and better promises that Christ unlocked on the cross. Like the Great High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek, we sit with Him on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven (Hebrews 8:1). We are ministers of the sanctuary of the New Jerusalem that’s coming from heaven to earth. The new heavens and the new earth within the Order of Melchizedek are established by the Lord of Love Himself, not by man (Hebrews 8:2). His “new” covenant with physical and spiritual Is-real had actually already been prophesied in Jeremiah 31. It foretold the change in the law that came with the change in the priesthood. (Hebrews 7:12):

“But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days says the LORD: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God and they shall be My people” (Jeremiah 31:33; Hebrews 8:10).

So when you see the word “disannul” or “disannulling” in Scripture, substitute the concept of an intimate worshipful rest stance in your mind… instead of getting rid of one of the most significant foundations of the Order of Melchizedek. The ORDER in the “Order of Melchizedek” is speaking about manifesting His word. This is not much of a stretch since the PATTERN of the Order of Melchizedek is our Great High Priest the Word of God Himself (Revelation 19:13).

The way of life for royal priests is paved with ONE who is intimately positioned in the Spirit in the midst of the Tabernacle of David, as they abide at the frequency of His Word. THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK SPEAKS! WORD UP!

You are meant to be a Sent One who walks in the highest ways of life flowing in His perfect rhythms of Spirit and Truth. So let’s all take that quantum leap to restore the ORDER in the “Order of Melchizedek.”

“You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men; clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart” (2 Corinthians 3:2-3 NKJV)

SHAVUOT MARRIAGE CONTRACT

Ketubah - marriage contract in jewish religious tradition

In the eyes of a Hebrew (one who has crossed over), Passover (Pesach) is considered to be the time of Is-real’s engagement to God (i.e., betrothal) while Pentecost (Shavuot) is referred to as the Marriage Day between God and Israel (i.e., God’s people). Shavuot commemorates both God (as the Bride’s Father) giving the Word of God as a dowry on Mount Sinai, and Moses presenting the people of Israel themselves, as a dowry to Father God for His Son – Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha Machiach).

Let’s delve a little deeper into Shavuot signifying the Marriage Day. On Shavuot, the faithful people of Is-real are the Bride of the Messiah. On Shavuot, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords is the Bridegroom who basically says: “Will you marry Me? Will you have Me and hold Me? Will you be faithful to Me and never ever let Me go?”

What I find very interesting is that both the marriage contract (ketubah in Hebrew) and the Bridegroom are both the Word of God. On the first Shavuot, the Torah given by God was His side of the marriage contract. When all the people at Mount Sinai said: “All that the LORD has spoken we will do” (Exodus 19:8), they committed to marry Him. It still remains that His Pure and Spotless Bride makes herself ready and present the Bride’s fulfilled side of the marriage contract (Revelation 19:7-8). Just as the Bridegroom did not come to destroy but fulfill the Word of God, so shall His Bride (Matthew 5:17). BTW – This will fulfill the spirit of the law of Moses. It will not be legalistic and yucky.

A Jewish Commentary – Midrash – says that Mount Sinai was lifted up over their heads on the day that the Hebrew Nation first drew near to hear the Ten Commandments from God’s own voice. Think about that! Mount Sinai lifted over the heads of the Bride of the Messiah, like a Chupah (wedding canopy). To this day, the Sephardic tradition recites the Ketubah le Shavuot (the marriage certificate for Pentecost) prior to the first Torah reading on the first day of Shavuot. They say that it’s a symbolic betrothal of God and His Bride.

There are many versions of the Ketubah le Shavuot, but they are all similar to the t’naim (the premarital document specifying the conditions agreed upon between the two parties), or the ketubah (the certificate the bridegroom presents to the bride at the wedding ceremony).

All the poems of the Ketubah le Shavuot are based on two verses:

• “I will betroth thee unto Me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto Me in righteousness, and in justice, and in lovingkindness, and in compassion. And I will betroth thee unto Me in faithfulness, and thou shalt know the Lord” (Hosea 2:21-22).

• “I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel” (Jeremiah 31:31).

Stay tuned! Tomorrow we will explore more about Shavuot.

For now, let’s meditate on the most widely used text for the Ketubah le Shavuot that was written by Israel Najara. It is found in the Sephardic Prayer Book for Shavuot. Notice that contract is dated the sixth day of the month of Sivan in the year 2448 from the creation of man, which is traditionally the day that the Hebrews recorded that the Torah was given. The Mishnah refers to the day of the giving of the Torah as the wedding day of King Solomon. Hebrews believe that the heavens and the earth witness this divine marriage certificate:

“Friday, the sixth of Sivan, the day appointed by the Lord for the revelation of the Torah to His beloved people… The Invisible One came forth from Sinai, shone from Seir and appeared from Mount Paran unto all the kings of the earth, in the year 2448 since the creation of the world, the era by which we are accustomed to reckon in this land whose foundations were upheld by God, as it is written, ‘For He hath founded it upon the seas and established it upon the floods’ (Psalm 24:2).

The Bridegroom [God], Ruler of rulers, Prince of princes, Distinguished among the select, Whose mouth is pleasing and all of Whom is delightful, said unto the pious, lovely and virtuous maiden [the people of Israel] who won His favor above all women, who is beautiful as the moon, radiant as the sun, awesome as bannered hosts: Many days wilt thou be Mine and I will be thy Redeemer.

Behold, I have sent thee golden precepts through the lawgiver Jekuthiel [Moses]. Be thou My mate according to the law of Moses and Israel, and I will honor, support, and maintain thee and be thy shelter and refuge in everlasting mercy. And I will set aside for thee, in lieu of thy virginal faithfulness, the life-giving Torah by which thou and thy children will live in health and tranquility.

This bride [Israel] consented and became His spouse. Thus an eternal covenant, binding them forever, was established between them. The Bridegroom then agreed to add to the above all future expositions of Scripture, including Sifra, Sifre, Aggadah, and Tosefta. He established the primacy of the 248 positive commandments that are incumbent upon all… and added to them the 365 negative commandments. The dowry that this bride brought from the house of her father consists of an understanding heart that understands, ears that hearken, and eyes that see.

Thus the sum total of the contract and the dowry, with the addition of the positive and negative commandments, amounts to the following: ‘Revere God and observe His commandments; this applies to all mankind’ (Ecclesiastes 12:13). The Bridegroom, desiring to confer privileges upon His people Israel and to transmit these valuable assets to them, took upon Himself the responsibility of this marriage contract, to be paid from the best portions of His property…

All these conditions are valid and established forever and ever.

The Bridegroom has given His oath to carry them out in favor of His people and to enable those that love Him to inherit substance. Thus the Lord has given His oath. The Bridegroom has followed the legal formality of symbolic delivery of this document, which is bigger than the earth and broader than the seas. Everything, then, is firm, clear, and established…

‘I invoke heaven and earth as reliable witnesses.’

‘May the Bridegroom rejoice with the bride whom He has taken as His lot and may the bride rejoice with the Husband of her youth while uttering words of praise.’”

WALKING & FULFILLING THE GOLDEN STREAM

HHL Golden Man by Orit Martin

Walking in the same manner as Yeshua did, will cause us to fulfill the golden stream of the Word of God that flows from His throne (1 John 2:6). When you hear that the Lamb of God’s sacrifice on the cross makes anything to do with the Old Covenant obsolete, think again!

Yeshua did not do away with the sacrifice. He fulfilled it by Yeshua becoming the sacrifice. There is a huge difference! Something obsolete, abolished or done away with is NOT fulfilled. It is sweep away, because it is of no use anymore. Not once did Yeshua proclaim or act in a manner that abolished the law. In fact, He manifested the very opposite: “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17 NASB).

That bring me to the point of this post. There has been a short post circulating: “Jewish festivals, new moons, and Sabbaths have come to an end in Christ. Their relevance only served to prophetically point to the promise of Christ on an annual, monthly, and weekly basis. They carried the promise like a placenta would hold the unborn child, but became obsolete as soon as the child was born. Col 2:16.”

Know that I write this post to merely address its erroneous points, and hopefully bring truth and unity to a difficult subject matter for believers. I will only make a few main points.

First, the dismissing of Biblical Feasts started in Constantine’s day in the fourth century when the emperor and his henchmen derogatorily called Biblical things “Jewish.” I know that many Jews have been faithful throughout the centuries to celebrate the festivals given to them by God in His Word. We honor that, but know that these are Biblical Feasts are for all of God’s people if you believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and His Son, Jesus Christ.

Second, the biblical marks of time articulated in Colossians 2:16 point to and are fulfilled in the Messiah. They have not come to an end. Let’s look at a couple translations of Colossians 2:16-17, which is one of the most misquoted scriptures Christians have used to rationalize why they should no longer exclusively celebrate Biblical Feasts, or justify why they celebrate holidays with a Christian-pagan mixture in them:

• “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ” (Colossians 2:16-17 KJV).

• “Let no man therefore create a disturbance among you about eating and drinking, or about the division of the feast days, the beginning of the months, and the day of the sabbath. These are shadows of things to come; but the main objective is Christ” (Colossians 2:16-17 Aramaic).

• “Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day – things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ” (Colossians 2:16-17 NASB).

Notice that none of these translations say: “Jewish festivals.” Also, notice that the festivals being referred to are in the eternal Word of God – the Bible – and are called “appointed times” or “holy convocations.” God even goes as far to say: “These are My feasts” in Leviticus 23:2. If you do a word study, the root meaning undergirding all the Biblical Feasts is coming together at a particular time (chosen by God) at a particular place (chosen by God) to be betrothed (married).

If you think Paul would advocate mixture in regard to holydays, you need to crack your Bible open and read the whole counsel of Scripture. Please notice that in the KJV, we are told that holydays (i.e., festivals) are “a shadow of things to come.”

Yeshua (Jesus) is the substance; but we must comprehend that a shadow always resembled its substance. Understand when it comes to holydays, we will be answering to the Creator of all things who is casting the shadow. Believers are not told to not celebrate Biblical Feasts in Colossians 2:16-17, but not to let anyone judge us with regard to them. Meaning we are not to criticize, censure, condemn, or punish people on how these celebrate a biblical feast, new moon celebration, or a Sabbath day. If Christians used the same logic for the Ten Commandments as we have for biblical marks of time, where would the church be? There is an assumption in the statement “Don’t let anyone judge you?” that God’s people are already eating, drinking, and celebrating.

My third main point is the idea that the annual, monthly and weekly celebrations are now obsolete is being promoted by someone who does not know much about Biblical Feasts. If they did, they would know that the fall feasts of the Lord, are rehearsals for His second coming. Is Yeshua’s (Jesus’) second coming obsolete? What about the two winter feasts displayed in Scripture? Are they obsolete too? The two biblical winter feasts in the Word of God (Hanukkah and Purim) portrays the Church becoming the Bride. Once again, I ask you: Is this obsolete?

My fourth main point is the idea of an umbilical cord acting like a tether. There is a “Christian” Holiday that does act like a tether to the three dimensions of space and the fourth dimension of time. That “Christian” holiday is Christmas.

The roots of Christmas Day are in the worship of the False Metatron Messiah Mithra, which connects its adherents to the demonic control of space time. While the roots of the Christmas Season are in the Roman Saturnalia with its worship of Saturn and its Black Cube imagery of demonic control of space time. You can read more here =>
https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2016/12/16/christmas-tether-to-space-time/ or purchase any of the book below. BTW – Our modern-day Christmas Season is made in the same image of Aaron’s Golden Calf. Bottom line. There’s actually a double tether to the demonic control of space time encapsulated in Christmas worship whether the worship be be Christian, Buddhist, Wiccan, or Satanic. Almost everyone, but the Jewish people, some atheists and a minority of Christians, celebrate Christmas; and thus, become enmeshed in the demonic control of time and space. Do you?

ART: “Abundance” by Orit Martin
http://www.homeofjudaica.com/israeli-artists/orit-martin/abundance-artist-orit-martin.html

FULFILLMENT IS A PLACE OF REST

book - forever

What if I told you that the phrase “disannulling of the commandment” in Hebrews 7:17 is probably not what you were taught it was? But in fact, it’s actually the opposite.

Let’s dig for His Word of Truth in this regard:

“For it is attested of Him, ‘You are a priest forever according to the Order of Melchizedek.’ For, on the one hand, there is a SETTING ASIDE OF A FORMER COMMANDMENT because of its weakness and uselessness. (For the Law made nothing perfect), and on the other hand there is a bringing in a better hope, through which we draw near to God.” (Hebrews 7:17-19 NASB).

The “setting aside” in the NASB is the “disannulling” in the KJV. When I happened upon these verses, I stopped because these translations were vexing my spirit. Why would Yeshua (Jesus) Himself declare: “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17 KJV), and then turn around and say that the commandments He fulfilled are now being set aside, if we are called to walk in the same manner as He did (2 John 2:6)?

So I rolled up my sleeves and asked the Holy Spirit to teach me. He first directed me to my Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary. What was strange is when I looked up the word “disannul;” and then, the words “dis” and “annul” separately, they appeared to contradict one another:

• DISANNUAL ~verb – ANNUL : CANCEL

• ANNUAL ~verb – to reduce to nothing : OBLITERATE : to make ineffective or inoperative : NEUTRALIZE : to declare or make legally invalid or void : syn NULLIFY

• DIS ~prefix – do the opposite of : deprive of : exclude or expel from : opposite or absence of : not : completely

So “disannul” is supposed to cancel something, but “dis” + “annual” is supposed to do the opposite of reducing something to nothing and making it legally invalid or void. Say what?! Okay… that doesn’t make sense. It was time to pull out the Strong’s Concordance.

The word “disannulling” on the surface was defined in the Strong’s Concordance as “cancellation” or putting away, and the word it came from also described “disannulling” as neutralizing or violating something, to set it aside, to disesteem it, bring it to nought, frustrate it, despise it, and reject it.

So I thought maybe I was off and chasing a wild rabbit, but the Spirit would not let up. When I dug deeper a different picture developed. I found out that just like my dictionary when I dug into the root for the Greek word “disannulling,” it spoke of something way different than setting something aside or cancelling it or making something null and void.

There are two Greek root words for the word “disannulling.” One of the words describes a sense of union while the other word describes something being placed in a passive or horizontal posture (i.e., rest) as well as speaking about advising, appointing and various worship stances (bowing, kneeling, laying down).

At the ROOT of the whole concept of that word “disannulling” is a picture of entering His rest where through the better hope in which we draw near to God, we show that we are a letter from Christ written not on tablets of stone but on the tablets of human hearts:

“You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men; being manifested that you are a letter of Christ, cared for by us, 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).

It’s the fulfillment of Ezekiel 36:26-27: “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.”

Aha!!! So NOW the Spirit of the Living God makes the Law that was once weak and externally written on tablets of stone a walking-talking demonstration of the Word of God – Word with flesh on written on human hearts. This is the reality His people need to understand in order to advance His Kingdom from Psalms 19:

” 7 The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 8 The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether. 10 They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb. 11 Moreover, by them Your servant is warned; In keeping them there is great reward.”

So the next time you hear that grace cancelled or set aside the Law, think again. Yeshua did not come to abolish the law, but He fulfilled it — He filled it up full of meaning. Let’s walk as Yeshua walked. He was not legalistic, yet He was holy. He was not full of unsanctified mercy or “hyper-grace,” yet He personified perfect love and the kind of kindness that leads a person to repentance.

One of the most misunderstood verses of all time is found in Romans 6:14-15 where Paul wrote, “For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law, but under grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be!” Please first note that this statement comes in the context of Paul’s dissertation about lawless Christians. Then when we consider the full counsel of Scripture, all we have to do is back up three chapters to run smack dab into Romans 3:31 “Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.”

Let’s press those tablets of human hearts into Him and establish as well as fulfill the law by doing what He did:

“One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, ‘Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?’ And He said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and all your soul, and all your mind. This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:35-40 NASB).

“And a lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying, ‘Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” And He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?” And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and all your soul, and all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.’ And He said to him, ‘You have answered correctly; Do this and you will live” (Luke 10:25-28 NASB).
