SLANDER WREAKS TRIPLE DESTRUCTION

With everything flying in the air these days, the Lord has been speaking to me about slander. As with all good and godly lessons, this one is starting at home (i.e., with me). Due to the fact that I cannot know all the facts in most situations, I have been being convicted about how many times I possibly falsely thought or said something due to my own perceptions.

My handy-dandy Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary (10th Edition) first defines “slander” as an action word – a verb – saying that slander is to utter slander against, or to defame (to disgrace, to harm the reputation by libel or to slander, to accuse, or to malign). The noun form of “slander” is defined as stumbling block : the utterance of false charges or misrepresentations which defame and damage another’s reputation : a false and defamatory oral statement about a person.

Slander wreaks triple destruction on the one who speaks, the one who listens and the one slandered. Not only is this triple threat possibly deadly for all involved; but the speaker of the slander digs a deeper hole, as they bear false witness, which can be a slippery slope into a pit for all involved, if we don’t take our minds captive to the obedience of Christ (II Cor 10:5) and put a guard on our lips (Psa. 141:3).

We should all take note that slander checks off items on the list that God hates: “These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren” (Proverbs 6:16-19 NKJV). Lying tongue. Check. False witness. Check. Sowing discord among brethren. Check.

I don’t know about you; but my soul has been sooooo grieved at how much slander is flying about during this season in history. I sooooo long for the righteous judgments of the Messiah and His Kingdom.

Please remember that “of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the Throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of Hosts will perform this” (Isaiah 9:7 NKJV). Kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek increase His government and peace when we each tackle this giant called “slander” in our own mind and life, so that the kingdoms of this earth can become the kingdoms of our God.

A continual test for King David, which kept him humble and teachable, was slander. How did David deal with slander? One of the ways was how he focused first thing in the morning and each night before he laid down to sleep. Every morning David engaged God first thing through prayer, because his personal relationship with God was foremost. Every evening David chose to forgive his enemies for any wrongdoing before he laid down to sleep in peace.

May we have a heart of David. “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer” (Psalms 19:14 NASB).

Give em heaven!!!

REVERENTIAL & HIDDEN THRONE OF DAVID

Tabernacle Cherubim

In the Tabernacle of David, Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) sits on the Throne of David, which is established on Mount Zion.

 The Archangel Gabriel told Mary: “He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the THRONE OF His father DAVID. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end” (Luke 1:32-33 NKJV ).

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, upon the THRONE OF DAVID, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this” (Isaiah 9:6-7 KJV ).

Only those who prepare, by having clean hands and a pure heart, have entrance to this royal court. The entrance to Mount Zion’s throne room is actually hidden. Let Queen Esther model for you how to enter and obtain favor from the King. Let us approach the King of Kings with humility, love and reverential awe. Let the wings of His angelic army become the canopy of His glory over us, as His Presence overwhelms.

Our next School of the Firmament #3 class being held on Monday, March 9, 2020 has a Tabernacle of David, Mount Zion and Throne of David focus. We will learn the history of the Tabernacle of David and how the Ark got there as well as the lessons learned on how to host God’s Dwelling Presence.

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!!!

NEVER CUT OFF THE BODY FROM THE HEAD

Book Dream

The mysteries of God’s Kingdom have always existed, but their vast reality has barely been delved into until such a time as this. The Lord is unveiling much more about a mystery, which He calls His Pure and Spotless Bride. Her code name is the New Jerusalem (Rev 3:12; 21:2) or the One New Man in Christ (Ephesians 2:15).

Please don’t get hung up on gender specific terms; because both men and women are called to be sons of God, the Bride of Christ, and the One New Man. Let’s contemplate how the perfect resurrection of Christ’s Body will inaugurate the age of the Bride of Christ or the New Jerusalem or the One New Man in Christ – these three being one as diverse aspects of the same consummation. In Him and in fellowship with one another, we are actually being built according to His time and His way into an eternal dwelling place for the King of Kings.

A radically new dispensation has arrived upon the scene of human history every two thousand years since the dawn of man’s time (Biblically speaking). The first two thousand year mark in man’s time saw Abraham walked up Mount Moriah to worship God by offering up his son Issac. Many experts agree that God’s physical temple in Jerusalem – the city of our great king – was built upon the same Mount Moriah. Two-thousand years later, which is also approximately two thousand years ago for us, another Fullness of Time came when Yeshua (Jesus) was born so we might be reconciled to God: “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).

A very appropriate word for the season, we just entered is the word “dispensation,” which simply put means an administrative system. It’s an ordering of events under divine authority. The Almighty One is in charge of this and any shift in the divine order of earthly things. He has been, and will always be, large and in charge. He is simply administering things on earth a bit different than before, and it affects everything we do and who we are. That’s the point. God is making adjustments so that His Resurrected Body of Believers and Bridal Company can come into their fullness. If God can measure the waters of the earth in the hollow of His hand, and with the breath of His hand mark off the heavens; then know that a small thing for the Lord, like a global shift in the earth’s administration, will probably be massive, even revolutionary, to us.

Spiritually speaking, the people of God are “a royal priesthood” (1 Pet. 2:9) and at the same time we are being built into a spiritual house [i.e. temple]” (1 Pet. 2:5). From heaven’s point of view, God’s people aren’t in a temple; we are the temple with each of us being a living stone. We are also its priests, but only the sons of a King can be considered royalty.

The whole world has entered the latest season of divine administration – Fullness of Times – where Christ’s Mature Head will be ultimately united with His mature Body. [Please see the KEYS TO THE REDEMPTION OF OUR BODY links below, and for more information about the “Fullness of Time”, please refer to: http://wp.me/p158HG-yo.]

Recall that Jeremiah 33:18 lists three progressive crucifixion steps for the Bride’s Baptism of Fire, which are spiritual sacrifices still required of God’s Holy Priesthood: “For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually” (Jeremiah 33:17-18 KJV).

What we are keying in on today is the phrase “never want” in “David has never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Is-real.” Those words “never want” not only refer to royalty (i.e. the throne of David), but to priests as we flow into the next verse. Within this passage of Scripture, LOVE reveals an ancient key for kings and priests of the Most High God.

On the surface level the phrase “never want” in Hebrew speaks of an absolute prohibition of taking away His royal priestly covenant as well as being an absolute prohibition of cutting off the Body from its Head – the Messiah (Ephesians 4:15-16).

If we dig a little deeper into the Ancient Hebrew Word Pictures for the phrase “never want”, we see that the word “never” tells us that Abba gives direction to what is first and what will prod or urge us forward, in addition to Abba gives us strength to control our tongues so we can move toward Him. The Ancient Hebrew Word Picture for “want” speaks of opening the door that reveals the path to the way of life. It shows us how to be covered by His throne.

So here’s to the Lord being our Shepherd and we shall never want! Here’s to Christ’s Head never being cut off from His Body of Royal Priests!!!

Keys to the Redemption of Our Body – Part 1

Return of Christ

There was a good and just man who was the only one to have charge of the burial of the Body of Jesus. His story holds some kingdom keys for us today on how to prepare the crucified Body of Christ for the ultimate redemption of our Body.

KEYS TO THE REDEMPTION OF OUR BODY – PART 1

If we take a close look at the account of Yeshua’s crucifixion in Mark 15, we see an honorable gentleman who was a member of the Sanhedrin (the supreme council or court in ancient Israel) – Joseph of Arimathaea. While Matthew 27:57 tells us he was a rich man, John 19:38 reveals that he was a secret disciple of Jesus. Luke 23:50 also declares him to be a good and just man.

Significantly, we are told that Joseph of Arimathaea was a man who waited for the Kingdom of God and craved the body of Jesus (Mark 15:43).

The word “waited” carries a whole lot more meaning than merely tarrying. We can interpret that Joseph of Arimathaea “waited for the Kingdom of God” several different ways: [1] He received to his own self the Kingdom of God. [2] He was admitted into the Kingdom of God. [3] He gave access to the Kingdom of God within Himself. [4] He was received into an intimate Kingdom of God relationship and companionship. [5] He was received as one coming from the Kingdom of God place. [6] He accepted the Kingdom of God. [7] He expected the fulfillment of the promises of the Kingdom of God.

The name “Joseph” means “let him add.” When we combine the meaning of Joseph’s name and the previous expansion of the concept of “waited for the Kingdom of God,” Isaiah 9:7 comes to mind, because God’s Kingdom and His government are synonymous: “Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”

This just man who waited for the Kingdom of God and craved the body of Jesus speaks to me of “we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the REDEMPTION OF OUR BODY” (Romans 8:23 KJV). Recall that the Bible tells us that “we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another” (Romans 12:5 NKJV).

So this good and just man who was the only one to have charge of the burial of the Body of Jesus holds some kingdom keys for us today on how to prepare the crucified Body of Christ for the ultimate redemption of our Body. “So Joseph bought some linen cloth, took down the body, wrapped it in the linen, and placed it in a tomb cut out of rock. Then he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb” (Mark 15:46 NIV). Notice that the crucified Body of Christ was wrapped in fine linen, and placed in a tomb carved out of rock with a stone for its door.

1. Fine Linen – Rev 19 speaks of two companies that are arrayed in fine linen: [1] The Bride of Christ, the wife of the Lamb (Revelation 19:7-8; Revelation 21:9, 2-3) and [2] The armies which were in heaven who follow One whose garment is dipped in blood and His name is called the Word of God (Revelation 19:13-14). It’s important to note that Rev 19:8 points out that the clean and white fine linen that arrays the wife of the Lamb is the righteous acts of the saints.

2. Tomb hewn out of Rock – The Church (i.e. the called out “ekklessia” – the Legislative Assembly of the Lord) is built upon the rock (Matt 16:18), which is Christ (1 Corinthians 10:4). It’s noteworthy that Matt 7:24 equates a wise man who built his house on the rock to whoever hears His words and does them. Wise virgins should probably take note (Matthew 25:1-13).

3. Stone for the Tomb’s Door – The entrance to Yeshua’s tomb was blocked by a stone, which the angels rolled away for His Resurrected Body. Understand that the word for “stone” in Hebrew is a contraction of two words: 1) av = father, 2) ben = son. Therefore, a stone is a picture of the Father and Son being so integrated that you can’t seem to figure out where one begins and another ends. It’s their essence of ONENESS, as proclaimed in John 17:21. Therefore, as we dwell with Him, He twists and rolls us together into One – One Body (Ephesians 1:10; Ephesians 4:4).
