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.

God’s Invisible Government – Breastplate Urim v’Tumim

Breastplate stones

Did you know that you are a creative sound that is made to resound with renown — the renown of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords? And your creative sound made to resound with renown is connected to the government of God?

What is the invisible government of YHVH anyway? There is more than one answer to this question. God’s Kingdom within you and me is like the wings of His heart wrapping around our eyes, so we can see how His heart moves. Let’s explore one dimension of God’s invisible government that is portrayed in the High Priest’s Breastplate, which was connected to his shoulders and placed on his heart. Please consider if God’s government is upon Yeshua (Jesus) who is the Prince of Peace that sits upon the Throne of David (Isa 9:6-7), then also consider that He is the Head while His believers are His Body. On the Body of the Messiah are shoulders, and in the background of ancient picture of the Royal Priesthood of Believers is the Breastplate of Judgment, sometimes called the Breastplate of Righteousness (Urim v’Tumim).

I once erroneous taught that the Urim v’Tumim was some sort of a “lot,” because my NASB International Inductive Study Bible had an Insight Note, which states: “The breastplate, which was fastened to the ephod, had a linen pouch which held the Urim and Thummim, which may have been used as sacred lots to reveal God’s will (1 Samuel 28:6).” 1 Samuel 28:6 says, “When Saul inquired of the LORD, the LORD did not answer him, either by dreams or by Urim or by prophets.” By the time the events of 1 Samuel 28 rolls around, David had already been anointed as King, and an evil spirit sent by the Lord was tormenting Saul as a result of his continual dabbling in divination, rebellion and insubordination to God.

Let’s get the correct insight into the Breastplate of Judgment (Choshen Mishpat) by looking into Hebrew History. First of all the Breastplate of Judgment on the High Priest’s garments was made of a 28-strand colored wool yarn/linen/gold material that had been twisted and rolled together, then folded in half to form a pouch. The 28-strand Breastplate was shaped like a rectangle measuring 1 cubit by ½ cubit (approximately 18 inches x 9 inches). In this pouch-like pocket Moses inserted a piece of parchment that is said to have had the Ineffable (unspeakable, sacred) Name Y-H-W-H written on it. It’s a mystery what Moses actually wrote or how he wrote it, but we do know that, the only one at that time to have met God face to face — Moses — was the only one who had the spiritual knowledge to write that Name or those Names on that holy piece of parchment, which was inserted into the high priest’s Breastplate.

This Name or Names inserted into the cleft of the Breastplate was called Urim, from the Hebrew word “light,” because it would cause individual letters of the tribal names on the Breastplate to light up; and this Name was also called Tumim, from the word “completeness,” because if read in the proper order, these luminous letters presented complete and true answers to the questions of national import that the Kohen Gadol (High Priest) would ask of God.

The Urim v’Tumim is not mentioned among the vestments that were made by artisans or contributed by the people (i.e. human hands). “You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men; being manifested that you are a letter of Christ… 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).

A Jewish Sage named Ramban gives an example of how this Urim v’Tumim/ Breastplate process took place. “When the God’s people crossed the Jordan and had to undertake the conquest of the Land, the question arose which tribe should begin the war against the Canaanites. Phinehas the Kohen Gadol entered the Tabernacle and posed the question. The name Judah lit up, and also the letters hey, lamed, ayin, and yood. The Kohen had to know what this combination of letters represented, because they could be placed in several orders, thus forming different combinations of words. A Divine spirit gave him the wisdom to know that the message of the Urim v’Tumim was “The tribe of Judah shall go forth [to wage war]” (See Judges 1:1-2).

Another Jewish Sage Vilna Gaon gives a classic interpretation of how the message of the Urim v’Tumim could be misunderstood. “When Hannah, the future mother of the prophet Samuel, entered the Tabernacle to pray for a child, the Kohen Gadol Eli saw her unusual demeanor and reckoned her to be a drunkard, rather than a supremely righteous woman (1 Samuel 1:13).” It is believed that Eli consulted the Urim v’Tumim regarding Hannah, and the Hebrew letters hey, dalet, kaf, and shin lit up. Instead of reading them correctly as “a worthy woman,” Eli mistakenly read the letters in the wrong order as “a drunken woman.”

Given the fact that the Hebrew Alef-Bet is the protoplasm of creation. Given the fact that it pre-dated the rest of creation and is the first born of all creation, the letters and their order is vitally important (Please refer to http://wp.me/p2k1dQ-kE for more information.) The Bible says that we are the letters of Christ written with the Spirit of the living God on tablets of human hearts (1 Corinthians 3:2-3). Christ in us the hope of glory is THE source of all true light and revelation, and He resides in the heart of every believer. He is the one that enlightens a person’s heart with a message from God.

I believe that myself and other believers are on a learning curve where the Lord is teaching us how to wait for Him to impart a complete spirit of revelation and how to remain marinating in His Presence until we receive a complete and true interpretation of what’s on His heart. The piece of parchment with God’s sacred name written on it symbolically represents every believer. Remember that we are the letters of Christ written with the Spirit of the Living God on tablets of human hearts.

When a person accepts the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ as their source of salvation, it is like when the Urim v’Tumim (the piece of parchment with the Ineffable Name written on it) was slid into the pouch of the High Priest’s Breastplate. This symbolizes that at the moment when a person is born again, the Spirit of the Living God writes the Word on our hearts and puts a new revelatory spirit within us.

“Put me like a seal over your heart…” (Song of Songs 8:6a) The Urim v’ Tumim was located directly over the Kohen Gadol’s heart, which is a beautiful picture of our Great High Priest, Jesus, placing us directly on His heart in the pocket (cleft) of the Rock as we draw near to that place with Him (Exodus 33:22). It is here where the Light of God illuminates His message (Urim) – within us. It is also here in the midst of His heart that we must remain to receive Y-H-V-H’s spiritual language of revelation (Tumim). THIS IS THE POWER OF HIS WORD. His Divine Will being fully made know. I don’t know about you, but the Lord is still training me in “waiting revelation.” Just when I think I’ve got it, I find out I don’t. I find that many revelatory messages that the Lord imparts to me seem to start out as “a shapeless chaotic mass” (Genesis 1:2 TLB) – a random word, a vision, whatever. I find that I need to wait and remain in His Presence longer to let the Spirit of God brood over these dark vapors, then, as the next verse (Genesis 1:3) reveals, light and life will appear through His revelatory word to and through me.

When God instituted talking to the nation of Israel through the Urim v’ Tumim, He taped into the raw material of all created things — the spiritual forces caused by His Divine will — as communicated through lit, properly ordered and understood letters illuminated on colorful precious stones representing Israel’s twelve tribes. These lit gemstones are a miniature picture of believers being His precious “living stones” (1 Peter 2:5). When God said “Let Us make man in Our image…” (Gen. 1:26), Yeshua put the protoplasm of the universe, His unchangeable Word, within each one of us. He arranged me as a letter of Christ different than He arranged you, but nonetheless, everyone made “in His image” has God’s immutable nature within him or her.

As a prophetic people, our Great High Priest Yeshua shines through us with the True Light, which enlightens every man. We are “the light of the world!” (Matt 5:14) Just as Yeshua spoke and it was so, may we be a creative sound that resounds with renown — the renown of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. I am still working on how to properly articulate these truths. I pray you have captured His message, and that the teaching about the Urim v’Tumim operating as some sort of random “sacred lot” is not correct. The Urim v’Tumim speaks of God’s desire to directly communicate with each one of us — a simple truth that the littlest child can understand. Jesus loves me, wants to hold me and speak to me. “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3). Indeed, this is an important aspect of the invisible government of God.

As we eagerly await His coming, Let there be light! “Arise, My people! Let your light shine for all the nations to see! For the glory of the Lord is streaming from you. All nations will come to your light…” (Isaiah 60:1,3a)

Give em heaven!!!

CRUX FOR GOD’S DWELLING PRESENCE

Glory

In the beginning God created a pristine garden and a perfect man (Genesis 1:26). This perfect pre-fallen man was a tri-parti being: body, soul and spirit. His perfection was a body clothed in righteousness, a soul that housed the dwelling place of God, and a spirit that constantly communicated with his Creator. Take note, because His people are returning to this heavenly sweet spot, which is our primordial state AS IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING.

Let’s review the “cherubim” classification for the New Living Creature of Melchizedek before we go into how the shekinah glory (His Dwelling Presence) remains in you and me. Please refer to the TAKING ON COMMON UNION series: http://wp.me/p2k1dQ-i9.

Scripture tells us that CHERUBIM:

[1] Mark the spot for us returning to our pristine primeval state. They stand at the entrance of the Garden of Eden with a flaming sword which turns every way to keep the way to the Tree of Life (Gen. 3:24).

[2] Mark the Dwelling Place of God, because He “dwells between the cherubim” (Psa. 80:1). In God’s Dwelling Places that have been built here on earth (Tabernacle, Temple and the New Jerusalem), cherubim are the most frequently sculpted, engraved, & embroidered figures made according to a heavenly pattern given by the Lord Himself (Exo. 26:1, 26:31-33; 36:8, 36:35; 1 Kings 6:29-35; 2 Chron. 3:7).

[3] Carriers of God’s throne, which is the seat of His divine glory as well as His royal power (1 Chron. 28:18). Cherubim make up the foundation of His fiery chariot throne that bears God’s Kingdom here on earth (Dan. 7:9; Ezek. 1:22-28; 10:1). God’s royal priests set out for the goal of the high calling to become just like Yeshua — the High Priest of the eternal order of Melchizedek. His Melchizedek Company is the Messenger that will facilitate the kingdoms of this world becoming the kingdoms of our Lord, and His Christ (Rev. 11:15).

This is the context that is essential to understanding the requirements needed for the Lord’s special dwelling presence to stay. His shekinah literally requires holiness. People have tried to boil holiness down to a formula of dos and don’ts, but that will always miss the mark because holiness is a love issue. Doing what Scripture prescribes for holiness taps into the prerequisites for which God’s Presence can dwell among us, but we must always take into account that His people’s hearts must be totally engaged when we seek to lovingly obey Him.

Believers in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob need to consider that the shekinah glory dwelt in the midst of Israel for generations: “The people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption of sons; theirs the divine glory…” (Rom. 9:4). First century believers understood the biblical holiness requirements, which facilitated God’s dwelling presence. When the Holy Spirit fell at Pentecost, the church experienced His manifest presence. They additionally sustained a multi-generational revival for more than three hundred years, because they understood how to live in God’s presence.

For the church to sustain His awe-filled presence today, we need to accurately grasp His minimum requirements for purity and their relevant application in our lives. Please let us learn from history, so we don’t repeat it. God’s dwelling presence departed from the Christian church when the pagan holidays were assimilated into it. Historical proof is seen in the departure of daily miracles from among them. Scriptural proof is spelled out in Ezekiel 8-11. We are not going into this passage in detail today. Please note, as you personally read it that God’s presence slowly and sorrowfully departed, for He longs for His people to repent so His presence may return or remain.

“Son of man, do you see what they are doing … things that will drive Me far from My sanctuary?” (Ezekiel 8:6). The four idolatrous practices listed in Ezekiel 8:3-5, 9-12, 14, 16 originated in Babylon, and the Bible says that they are detestable to God. BTW – These all have to do with pure worship. Today, we will only peek at the fourth and most detestable practice in His eyes that drives Him far from His sanctuary: “So He brought me into the inner court of the LORD’s house; and there, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs toward the temple of the LORD and their faces toward the east, and they were worshiping the sun toward the east” (Ezekiel 8:16 NKJV).

The fourth and most detestable practice was performed in the inner court of the house of the Lord between the porch and the altar. The inner court symbolizes those who are intimately acquainted with God. The porch is a place of traversing back and forth. It can be akin to a heaven and earth connection. The altar was a platform of sacrificial worship, where worshipers endeavored to meet with their God. So these twenty-five or so men, who were bowing down to the sun with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, were His close companions. They were people who knew and loved the Lord; yet they still grievously bowed down to and worshiped the sun, whether they acknowledged the fact or not.

It is not until Ezekiel 9:3 that the departure of God’s presence begins. His shekinah glory moves over His fiery chariot throne – a set apart remnant of His people. Then, His shekinah glory is carried by the Living Creature from the inner court to the threshold of His sanctuary. The Lord hesitates there to see if His people will notice His leaving. Will they repent and welcome His manifest presence back? He waits, then in Ezekiel 10:19 God’s glory moves further away to the eastern gate. He waits again. His people still won’t repent of their idolatry, so God’s shekinah glory moves out of Jerusalem (the city of our God) across the Kidron Valley to the Mount of Olives (Ezekiel 11:23). Then God waits again for the people to turn from their idols. Where’s does Scripture say that the Lord will return? The Mount of Olives both spiritually and physically (Zechariah 14:4).

The pagans in the fourth century recognized their own solar cults in the church’s adoption of the Nativity of the Unconquered Sun (Mithra’s Winter Festival). They recognized the church assimilation of their pagan practices in the orienting cathedrals to the east, worshiping on “sun day,” and celebrating the birth of the sun god deity at the Winter Solstice. Throughout antiquity, all sun gods across all cultures celebrated their birthday on the ancient winter solstice – December 25th – before the Roman shift in time. The Catholic Encyclopedia even documents that the Nativity or Mithra’s Winter Festival has a strong claim on our December 25th date. Never mind the fact that Constantine had the Vatican built atop the hill where the Mithras cult worshiped the sun. History records that it had become common practice in the fifth century for worshipers entering St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome to turn at the door, put their backs to the altar, and bow down to worship the rising sun. See Ezekiel 8:16.

When the Lord says that “Christmas will be the golden calf of America,” He is telling us that it is idolatry in His eyes. The Lord has given each of us the responsibility to prepare a place for Him: “Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure” (1 John 3:3). His shekinah glory cannot dwell where there is idolatry; therefore, His dwelling presence can not, and will not, coexist with this golden calf we call Christmas. Idolatry is the crux that determines whether His shekinah glory will merely visit His people or dwell among them. If it’s your heart-of-hearts to be part of Yah’s glorious Melchizedek and Bridal companies, you will have to pass through this fire.
