THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK CONSISTS OF HIGH PRIESTS

high-priest

If Yeshua (Jesus), who is the Mature Head of the Body of Christ, is a High Priest made after the Order of Melchizedek, what do you think is the priestly role of the Mature Body of Christ, if we are in fact ONE (John 17:23)?

The answer is: Being ONE necessitates that we are high priests too. That does not diminish nor replace the fact that Yeshua is the Highest Priest made after the Order of Melchizedek. When Yeshua’s flesh was crucified, the veil was torn in God’s Temple and a new and living way was made for you and me to access the Presence of the Most High God. This access to the Holy of Holiest beyond the veil is a privilege of a High Priest – a High Priest of the House of God. Yeshua is the High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek over the House of God. Hebrews 10 puts it this way: “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which He has consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh; And having an High Priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:” (Hebrews 10:19-24).

1 John 2:6 says it this way. We will do what Yeshua did – walk in the same manner as HE did. This includes walking as a High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek. We are the Priesthood of All Believers that is made up of High Priests in an Eternal Priesthood. This Holy Eternal Priesthood is not based on a person’s ancestry but “on the basis of the power of an indestructible life. For it is declared: ‘You are a priest forever, in the Order of Melchizedek’ ” (Hebrews 7:16-17).

HITTING THE BULL’S EYE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS – PART 8 – FAITHFULNESS TEST

Red Leap

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says.”  Just as the inner ear spirals inward, so is the Bridal Journey of Purification. Just as the spoken word seeks the pure water within, so do Bridal Candidates seek the pure washing of the water of His Word in order to get to the very heart of God. Greater than glorious intimacy is a sacred oneness with the King and His Kingdom:

“That in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in ONE all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him” (Ephesians 1:10 NKJV).

In our last installment of HITTING THE BULL’S EYE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (see below), we began to explore the second crucifixion step in the Bride’s Baptism of Fire. As we follow Yeshua’s footsteps in our own baptism of fire, we are moving beyond salvation and sanctification to the place of purification where our perfection is to resound with renown at the perfect pitch of His Bride – “The Lord is our righteousness” (Jeremiah 33:16).

Jeremiah 33:17-18 tells us that YHVH will never lack a royal priest that will burn grain offerings before Him. Let’s first focus on the royal priest who presents the grain offering, then on the grain/meal offering itself. On this side of the cross, the Royal Order of Melchizedek acts as a treasurer of the King’s most valuable resources. The top priority on the King’s list is His Ravishing Bride. Esther 2:15 reveals that His Bride is required to do NOTHING but what the King’s Chamberlain appoints. A king’s chamberlain is an attendant on a sovereign in his bedchamber as well as a chief officer in the household of a king who is a guardian of a collection of treasures. Just so you know, the King’s Chamberlain is synonymous with one who maturely operates according to the heavenly Order of Melchizedek here on earth.

Melchizedek is the predecessor of the Bride. We need to understand that we have to first functionally operate in our God-given governmental seat as a kingdom priest before we become a suitable partner – His Bride.

The Bridal Candidate’s Grain Offering Test is an ancient pathway that’s reveals what the kingdom of priests will need to go through at the second stage of their Bridal Baptism of Fire. Numbers 5:11-31 describes the primordial faithfulness test for the Lamb’s wife:

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing” (James 1:2-4 NKJV).

Let’s face it. Until we are truly without spot of wrinkle, we are wayward in many ways. This passage in Numbers 5 shows us how God deals with infidelity. First and foremost, a husband had to be without sin to bring “the meal-offering of jealousies” on behalf of his wife (Numbers 5:15). Note that Yeshua brought the meal-offering for His wayward wife at the cross through the offering up of His Body (1 Corinthians 11:23-24; Ephesians 5:23-25). His Body will walk in the same manner as He did (1 John 2:6) filling up what is lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of His Body, which is the church (Colossians 1:24).

This primordial faithfulness test for a bride was, and still, is focused on inducing her confession and repentance:

  • “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 KJV).
  • “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent” (Revelation 3:19 NKJV).

Note: That the wife who endured this extreme ordeal to the end would be vindicated. In the Old Testament, the accused wife had to be innocent of infidelity to survive the ordeal, but on this side of the cross, this process shows us how the One who loves us and who desires for us to be ONE with Him will progressively break a beloved one’s soul in order to crucify our sin nature (flesh) until nothing remains, except that which is purely spiritual.

Picture, if you will, yourself as Yeshua’s Bride. You are standing before the LORD with your hair loose, which speaks of revealing the particular frequency of your manifestation of His glory. If a person has mixture (sin) in their life, their frequency will resonate at a lower level than the perfectly pure frequency of their Bridegroom. Recall that “to burn grain offerings” speaks of one’s life being measured according to the plumb line of God’s Word:

“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” (1 Peter 1:22-23 NKJV).

Once the Wayward Wife’s hair was let down, the High Priest would then place the grain offering in her outstretched palms, as he held the water of bitterness in an earthenware vessel. The priest would then have her move from place to place in the doorway of the courtyard where devout women served YHVH. The grain offering quickly became a burden that only the most resolute would bear. Afterwards, the priest would write the oaths contained in Numbers 5:19-22 on a parchment scroll. Ordinarily, in Biblical Times, it was forbidden to erase the sacred name, but here God commanded that His Name be erased in order to bring peace between man and wife.

Can you hear the shadow of the things to come that are here even now? Bridal candidates hold the grain-offering in her hands – the True Bread of Heaven – Yeshua. They hold onto Him for all that they are worth through the most difficult of circumstances. Remember, this is the place where the fiery eyes of Yeshua Ha Machiach searches  a person’s souls with the goal of the True Bread of Heaven manifesting fully through the supernatural enablement of the seven-fold Spirits of God (Isaiah 11:1-2). When a Bridal Candidate’s faithfulness is being tested at this level of purification, the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro throughout the whole earth – your earth and mine – is the substance that comes out of heaven – manna – that humbles and tests us. (Please refer to http://wp.me/p2k1dQ-lZ .) As we press into letting His Word sift us, we are transformed by the renewing of our minds and we prove the Father’s acceptable will through our lives (Romans 12:2).

Another present day expressions of a shadow of things to come is the High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek holds the bitter water in His hands as His Bride moves about His courts. The Temple Courtyard is symbolic of the body. It is here that by “the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service” (Romans 12:1 NKJV).

The waters are called bitter, because purification (like sanctification) is a bittersweet process. One’s soul doesn’t like to die. We fight it, even when we desire it with all our heart. Therefore, these waters of purification are bitter until the tree is thrown in the water (Exodus 15: 25). When the Tree of Life is thrown in the water, the waters that our Great High Priest holds become sweet in order to sanctify and cleanse His Bride with the washing of water by the word (Ephesians 5:25-26). We know that the Tree of Life is synonymous with the Cross in this case, because the erasing of His Sacred Name speaks of: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

Be encouraged Bridal Hearts! You are ONE who will endure to the end. The wayward wife in the Old Testament was found pure after she went through this arduous, humiliating process. The Messiah’s Bride will do no less. The All-Consuming Fire will lead us by His Spirit and His Word to the place where no carnal flesh will remain; and we will become – ONE – bone of His bone and flesh of His divine flesh.

TAKING ON COMMON UNION – Part 1

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

Step Assistance

I helped organize daily prayer for a citywide event in 2000. On the Third Day, the Lord led a time of communion. He desired each participant to look solely at Yeshua (Jesus) and privately take the communion elements with Him, as one.

As I quieted myself down and slightly raised my portion of bread, I immediately heard a clear still, small voice say: “With this bread, I Thee wed.” I don’t remember what I was thinking at the time, but it certainly wasn’t along that line. It was such a revelatory moment. So I raised my bread a little higher and solemnly whispered, “With this bread, I thee wed.” Then I took the bread of heavenly common union and became one with it.

Next, I raised my cup. Again, I immediately and unmistakably heard inside my spirit: “With this wine, I Thee wed.” With total reverential awe, I whispered: “With this wine, I thee wed.”

I found out years later that Tuesdays (i.e. the third day of the week) is the day when weddings took place in ancient Israel. Our Beloved is coming to marry His pure and spotless Bride in this prophetic third day.

WED ~verb : to take for wife or husband by a formal ceremony : MARRY : to join in marriage : to pledge : to enter into matrimony

MARRY ~verb : to join as husband and wife : to give in marriage : to take a spouse : WED : to unite in close and unusually permanent relation

UNITE ~verb : to put together to form a single unit : to cause to adhere : to link by a legal or moral bond : to possess (as qualities) in combination : to become one or as if one : to become combined by or as if by adhesion : to act in concert [more at ONE]

COMBINE ~verb : to bring into such close relationship as to obscure individual characters : MERGE : to cause to unite into a single number or expression : BLEND : to possess in combination

To Stand is To Be Crucified

Cross Look Up

Did you know that the Greek root for the word “CRUCIFIED” tells us to be crucified is TO STAND or TO ABIDE or TO PRESENT?

When you done everything to stand, stand therefore. When you are crucified in union with Christ, you are set on higher ground where the cross is firm; and I AM that I AM is lifted up and draws all people upon Himself. (John 8:28; Galatians 2:20; Ephesians 6:13-14).

“For I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth” (Job 19:25 KJV).

“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one ; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me” (John 17:22-23 NASB).

His Divine Building Plan in the Dispensation of the Fullness of Time – 1 of 3

— The Biblical Pattern for a Global Shift in the Divine Order of Earthly Things–

A radically new dispensation has arrived upon the scene of human history every two thousand years since the dawn of time. Don’t let the word dispensation trip you up, because it simply means an administrative system. When the One who is sovereign initiates a new dispensation, God reforms how He manages and runs things on earth.

For several years now, the whole world has become engulfed in an atmospheric (spiritual) climate of change. Simply look and see words like “kingdom,” “shift,” and “change” are in the air. Please realize that the promises that have regulated human affairs for the past two thousand years are not going away, but shifting by a quark or two in order to prepare God’s people for our coming King. God is in charge of this and any shift in the divine order of earthly things, and it affects everything we do and who we are. It literally is a new state of being in Christ. This new state of being will result in the gathering together in one all things in Christ (Ephesians 1:10) – which in a word is One(ness). This fresh new order carries with it a pristine DNA for a new creature, which will produce a new prototype.

The purpose of this divine global shift in earth’s administration is to make adjustments so His resurrected body of believers and His pure and spotless bridal company can come into their fullness.  We have entered a season where an elemental change is occurring so that a corporate body will be prepared for Him (Hebrews 10:5). This new thing – a manifestation of the perfect multi-membered resurrection of Christ’s body – will inaugurate the Age of the Bride of Christ (Revelation 19:7-8) and the Age of the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:1-10) and the Age of the One New Man in the Messiah (Ephesians 2:15) – these three being one as diverse aspects of the same consummation. Please don’t get hung up on gender-specific terms; both men and women are called to be part of the One New Man and the Bride.

The Biblical pattern for each new dispensation is first a precious son volunteers to become a worshipful, sacrificial burnt offering; then gradually a new dwelling place for God is built. Just know that the Creator of our universe started with something wholly natural, but eventually His divine building pattern will culminate in something entirely spiritual.

“The spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual … Just as we have borne the image of the earthly, we will bear the image of the heavenly … flesh and blood can not inherit the Kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 15:46, 49-50 NASB).

Let’s take a closer look at times in the Bible when a precious son volunteers to become a pleasing sacrifice. Notice that each one of the participants is an example of those who volunteer freely in the day of God’s power (Psalms 110:3). They literally present themselves as a Burnt Offering by fire.

The first example presented to us is Abraham and Isaac in Genesis 22. Some facts hidden in Jewish history about Abraham will help better illuminate our burnt offering picture.

Before Abram became Abraham, he originally shared the idolatrous practices of his father, Terah, who manufactured and sold actual graven images (idols). At the tender age of 13, Abram was personally convicted by the Most High God to cast off all foreign gods, so he smashed all of his father’s idols. Terah was furious, because he had lost a lot of things including time, energy and money; therefore, Terah took his case to the pre-eminent rebel of his time who was the first earthly king – Nimrod. Nimrod, being a law unto himself and the flesh, ruled that Abram was guilty. He had the “defiant” Abram thrown into a fiery furnace. What’s astonishing is that Abram miraculous survived his very close and personal baptism of fire long before Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego (Daniel 3).

We then see God’s heart response to Abram’s sincere belief and his obedience in coming out of Babylon by forging a unilateral covenant of faith with him as a prototype for all who believe. The unilateral covenant where Abram was saved through faith by grace was, and is, only dependent on God’s faithfulness (Gen 15). Notice that Abram was asleep when God made His covenant with him. Significantly, God appeared as a flaming torch which passed between Abram’s five split offerings. The number “”five” in Scripture speaks of divine favor and grace.

Always pay attention to the first occurrence of any thing in the Bible, because it sets precedence. Therefore, the first account of a son volunteering to be a sacrifice is when God asked Abraham to take his only son up to Mount Moriah and offer him there as a burnt offering as a voluntary act of worship (Genesis 22). Many of us think back to when we were taught this in Sunday School, and picture Abraham running the show and Isaac being a small boy who unconditionally trusted his father; but Hebrew history records that Abraham was 137-years-old and Isaac was 36 at the time. Knowing their more advanced age brings better clarity on how both participants – both Abraham and Isaac – truly volunteered freely. When Abraham and Isaac willingly ascended Mount Moriah, Abraham (the father) carried the fire and Isaac (his son) carried the wood for the burnt offering on his back. This was a Messianic foreshadow of an unprecedented event fulfilled around two-thousand years later by Jesus and His own Heavenly Father. Abraham built an altar there onMount Moriah, arranged the wood, and placed his only begotten son on top of the wood. When Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his son, an angel stopped him at the last moment.

Known as the “akedah” in Hebrew, this was the final test of Abraham’s faith. James chapter 2 says that Abraham’s “faith was working with his works, and as a result of the works, faith was perfected,[ i.e. completed]. And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, ‘AND ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS’ (James 2:22-23 NASB). Abraham’s persevered in his faith in God and moved into a more mature state of holding to the testimony of God (Rev 12:17; 14:12). The truth of the matter is if you believe in something, then you will naturally act on that belief and do those things which are consistent with what you believe. Otherwise, your words won’t line up with what you do and you will be known as a hypocrite.

After the akedah, there were several iterations of God’s dwelling place that were built, with one version overlapping the next precious son volunteering to be a sacrifice:

[1]   Wilderness Tabernacle (Built by Moses) – Portable earthly image that served as a copy and shadow of heavenly things to come (Exo 25:40; Heb 8:5)

[2]   Solomon’sTemple (Built by King David’s son)

[3]   Herod’s Temple (Built by an apostate king)

The next Biblical precedence of a precious son volunteering to become a burnt offering is Jesus (i.e., Yeshua). With Yeshua’s death, burial, and resurrection a great slide from the natural toward the supernatural began. Even though there was a new beginning inaugurated at the cross to facilitate a transformation of God’s temple, historically, there was a gradual turning so God’s people could transition into the new dispensation. The dispensation begun by Jesus’s baptism of fire (Matthew 3:11) – his crucifixion – was:

“But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons” (Galatians 4:4-5 NIV).

The promise of the new dispensation inaugurated at the cross was, and still is, the adoption of sons (i.e. restoration of fellowship). This promise was the first great quickening (Romans 8:11; Ephesians 2:5). It’s an eternal promise; therefore, it will continue. Right now, we have a fresh dispensation dawning, which encompasses and expands on everything that has gone before it.

“that in the dispensation of the fullness of time He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth – in Him” (Ephesians 1:10 NIV).

The new dispensation in our day speaks of gathering together in one all things in Christ. It should be another quantum leap in the spiritual direction, which should result in something enveloped by something completely heavenly. Something like: a holy city, the Lamb’s (Bridegroom’s) wife, the Bride, New Jerusalem “coming down from God out of heaven” (Revelation 21:2). Something like: the mature HEAD of Christ (Revelation 1:14) spiritually being joined to His mature BODY of believers (Ephesians 4:15-16; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27). What I do know is that in this fresh dispensation, God is causing us to hunger and thirst for righteousness (Matthew 5:6) as well as hating mixture (Revelation 3:15-16). He is causing us to want to be just like Jesus. To move just like Him. To live just like Him. To be just like Him. In order to do this, we will have to diligently and consistently choose to walk in the same manner that Jesus did (1 John 2:6).
