The third, and most arduous, leg of the Bride’s Baptism of Fire creates a blazing Fire Bride whose flame never goes out. This is the place where purification is consummated, which is a quantum leap beyond salvation and sanctification. It’s a final transformative stage, which facilitates our becoming one with the All-Consuming Fire. It causes the New Jerusalem to resound with renown with the perfect frequency of our Bridegroom.
Please recall that the kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek are the predecessor of the Bride (i.e. they prepare the Bride and are the pool from which the Bride comes). When royal priests burn to become just like Him, they will go all-out to become a Continual Living Sacrifice, which will be their ultimate spiritual sacrifice.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you PRESENT YOUR BODIES A LIVING SACRIFICE, HOLY, ACCEPTABLE TO GOD, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:1-2 NKJV).
“You also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up SPIRITUAL SACRIFICES ACCEPTABLE TO GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST” (1 Peter 2:5 NKJV).
You may have seen fire birds lately in the Spirit, because the fiery birds of a feather that are flocking together in this Kingdom Day are various wings of the Order of Melchizedek flying by the Spirit with one another. These passionate ones only glory in the cross:
“But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. For in Christ Jesus … availeth … a new creature” (Galatians 6:14-15 KJV).
Christ’s Baptism of Fire was His crucifixion (Matt 3:11). His Bride will not shun the need to join Him in this regard for the sake of His Body. BECOMING A MANIFESTED SON WHO IS A CONTINUAL LIVING SACRIFICE IS A DEEP RED MYSTERY, WHICH CULMINATE’S IN THE BRIDE’S COMPLETE BAPTISM OF FIRE THAT LITERALLY HITS THE BLOODSHOT BULL’S EYE OF THE FATHER.
Please recall that the full stature of His crimson flow makes it necessary for His Mature Body to grow up into Him in all things as well as each member of His Mature Body needing to fill up the afflictions of Christ in their flesh for His Body’s sake (Ephesians 4:15; Colossians 1:24-25). The Corporate One New Man in Christ will accurately display to all the world the fullness of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ the same way that all fullness dwelt in Yeshua (Jesus) – through the blood of the cross (Col 1:19-20). This is a key component to Yeshua’s Mature Head attaching to His Mature Body (Daniel 7:9; Revelation 1:14).
As the previous HITTING THE BULL’S EYE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS articles illustrate, the way of righteousness for both His Melchizedek Company and Bridal Company consists of progressive crucifixion steps, which are spiritual sacrifices He still requires of His Holy Priesthood. For those who desire to completely crucify their own sin nature, Jeremiah 33:18 holds the key to the Bride’s Baptism of Fire in its fullness:
 offer burnt offerings,
 burn grain offerings, and
 prepare sacrifices continually.
A Bridal Candidate’s quest for purification includes all of these offerings by fire. Understand that we are speaking about spiritual principles, not literal animal sacrifices in this Kingdom Day. Like all series of three in Scripture, these crucifixion steps (where we join Yeshua on the cross) are listed from easiest to hardest. They also illuminate our way that leads to His Mature Body being prepared to do the perfect fiery will of the Father. Today is all about the third and final crucifixion step.
“Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: ‘Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but A BODY PREPARED FOR ME. … Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come – In the volume of the book it is written of Me – TO DO YOUR WILL, O GOD.” (Hebrews 10:5,7 NKJV).
Verse 9 of Hebrews 10 tells us that He took away the first (literal sacrifices and offerings) to establish the second, which is Christ’s Body prepared to do His will. The principles behind the offerings listed in Jeremiah 33:18 literally show His kings and priests how the Messiah’s Body is prepared, so it perfectly fits on the Head of the King of Kings.
The New Living Creature of Crucified Ones who is a Corporate One New Man in the Messiah will be the same essence as the All-Consuming Fire, which means our hearts, minds and works will have been thoroughly tested by fire (1 Corinthians 3:11-15; Hebrews 12:27-29).
Reigning Ones will manifest being an everlasting offering by fire, as they come out the other side of the All-Consuming Fire. They will be emblazon with the name: “The Lord is our righteousness” (Jeremiah 33:16), and will continue to remain seated in the Sapphire Throne with Him (Ephesians 2:6; Revelation 3:21).
There is a purpose for this Continual Living Sacrifice place where His Holy Royal Priesthood prepares the truest sacrifice of themselves. This purpose is where Crucified Ones earn their title by bringing their entire carnal nature to the Lord’s Altar, so it can be totally burnt up and the fullness of Christ can dwell in them.
To gain greater insight into our highest reality of being a Continual Living Sacrifice, we need to understand how the High Priest used to prepare sacrifices for God’s Altar:
 THROAT SLIT & BLOOD DRAINED – We must exchange our life in the flesh for His life in the Spirit. We are losing ourselves, so that we might be found in Him.
 HEAD CHOPPED OFF – The Head of the Body of Christ is in charge. We are to walk in the same manner as Yeshua who demonstrated: “Not My will, but Yours be done” (Luke 22:42).
 SKIN REMOVED – We need to get rid of all self-protection, self-righteousness, and any self-defense mechanisms that are barriers to wholly connecting with God. His Sons of Light epitomize vulnerability and transparency.
 SPLIT BODY COMPLETELY OPEN & WASH INWARD PARTS – Our heart and soul must be refined and purified, then washed with the water of the word (Eph 5:26) and the Spirit of regeneration (Titus 3:5). A Continual Living Sacrifice demonstrates that all things belong to God. Please refer to “RESTORATION TIME – 12 STRANDS OF DNA” – https://www.facebook.com/SapphireThroneMinistries/photos/pb.436004819805351.-2207520000.1408624698./717675584971605/?type=3&theater. The Cherubim Classification of the Order of Melchizedek must fulfill the 10 Copper Chariot Laver picture in Solomon’s Temple in this regard.
 LEGS CHOPPED OFF – Continual Living Sacrifices cannot walk their own way. It’s impossible. They need the supernatural legs of the Messiah, which are activated through their daily surrender to the Spirit’s leading (John 5:19).
BTW – I culled these preparing sacrifices steps from Mike Parson’s “Present A Living Sacrifice (1)” article on www.freedomarc.wordpress.com.
Just know that Continual Living Sacrifices who prepare themselves for use in God’s Kingdom constantly prove what the perfect will of God is (Rom 12:2). My Webster’s College Dictionary says that the word “prove” is an action verb, which is defined as:
• to learn or find out by experience
• to test the truth, validity, or genuineness of
• to test the worth or quality of, specifically: to compare against a standard
• to check the correctness of
• to establish the existence, truth or validity of (as by evidence)
• to demonstrate as having a particular quality of worth
• to show (oneself) to be worthy or capable
• to turn out, especially after trial or test
Proving the perfect will of God involves working it out with fear and trembling as well as renouncing and giving up our own ways for His way for His Kingdom come here on earth as it is in heaven. When we are crucified daily in union with Christ according to the plumb line of His Word of Righteousness, our inward and outward appearance will be transformed into His same image from glory to glory until we plainly prove the righteous character of Christ.
His pure and spotless Bride will exemplify co-crucifixion with her Beloved. Every time we make His specified spiritual sacrifice, it will cause those after the Order of Melchizedek to decrease in their own strength and increase in the way of eternal life. His complete Bridal Baptism of Fire of our Kingdom of Self will cause His Continual Living Sacrifices to operate wholly and fully in the Kingdom of God.
May the Kingdom of Self disappear and the Kingdom of God appear in you and me.
