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)
