PRACTICAL KEYS TO UNLOCKING MELCHIZEDEK – PART 6 – ORDER SPEAKS

Sword Dove Frequency

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)

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

— Precious or Mature Sons —

The second leg of our three-part journey of “moving onto perfection” (Heb 6:1) is called the son’s portion, but more accurately it should be defined as the mature son’s portion for that’s the ultimate goal at this part of our Kingdom trek. Our quest to be just like Jesus is “painfully beautiful” [1] at this juncture.

The son’s portion is the place where our bonds in Christ are readily perceived by our senses and recognized by our minds (Phil 1:13). Second Corinthians 5:14 tells us that the love of Christ should instruct, control or constrain us.  Therefore, the bonds in Christ are obvious within a believer at this stage when one endeavors to become a mature man (Eph 4:13) or when one shoots even higher to become part of Christ’s pure and spotless Bride (Matt 25: 1-13; Eph 5:27; Rev 21). Remember that both men and women are called to be Adult Sons and the Bride of Christ, because in the Spirit there’s no male or female (Gal 3:28). By the way, the third and hardest leg of the “moving unto perfection” journey is the bridal portion.  For now, please note that sons are chosen to build a house for God’s sanctuary (1 Chr 28:10) while His Bride literally makes up His house. She is the glorious exalted space where He can and will dwell (Rev 21:3).

Let’s keep focused on the full-grown son’s portion. Please note that the magnificent corporate purpose of mature sons being bonded in Christ is to unite via an attractive force, and then to embed this cohesive force into a matrix called the One New Man in Christ, which is a phenomenal truth that will be covered in another article.

The son’s portion is a place where we are moving beyond proving what’s merely good to a more restrained place of proving what’s acceptable, approved or pleasing in God’s sight, so we will no longer be conformed to this world in a greater measure (Rom 12:2).

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.

~Psalm 19:14 NASB

We tend to forget that it was partaking of the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil that caused man to fall from their exalted state of daily communion with God. When we are working out what is acceptable to the Lord our God in our Kingdom within, God works to rein in our mouths, hearts and deeds to align perfectly with His words, His thought and His works. Incremental solidified change results in transformation, which can be a lengthy process at best unless God does something sovereign. Be forewarned: When God is tuning a person’s life to that which is acceptable in His sight, anything that grieves His heart will surface. Mixture will be sifted out here.

Most believers, if not all, have things to perfect at this level. If you think that you don’t, it’s the quickest signal that you do because having a humble, teachable heart is a preeminent hallmark of a maturing or mature son of God (Prov 2-7). Growing, maturing sons continually endeavor to work out their salvation with fear and trembling (Phil 2:12), according to the righteous and just standards of God’s throne (Psa 89:14). When we declare platitudes, like: I’m already holy, I’m already righteous, I’m already a mature son, I’m already His Bride, or I’m already an overcomer, we need to realize that God is already examining those very areas of our life to see if they measure up. Any one of the above manifestations are heavenly positions that believers have access to “in Christ,” but it’s God’s appraisal of our earthly condition that determines the level of a person’s or a group’s maturity. Ephesians 4:13 tells us that “a mature man” is determined by the standard of the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. Jesus Christ’s fullness is always 100%. Your or my fullness is not. Not yet. I dare you to ask the Lord, “How much of the fullness of the stature of Christ do I have?” Our goal is for these heavenly positions to become walking-talking realities here in the land of the living, but for now, I see too often that these glorious heavenly positions, like being an Adult Son or the Bride, are used as emphatic declarations that keep us unknowingly stunted.

Everyone (both in the Church and the world) recognizes a genuine manifestation of God’s power and any heavenly position manifestly held here on earth. If we’re honest with ourselves, we will see that blanket platitudes are red flags that signal where God would like to refine us. Trite remarks usually indicate areas where we’re protective, defensive, and unwilling to dive deeper into the Way and the Truth and the Life. When someone utters, I’m already such-and-such but their life doesn’t always demonstrate that reality, the only people who buy into their confession are like-minded individuals. Everyone else can discern the fact that your State of Being doesn’t measure up to what you tout. Christ’s Church needs to recognize that our hypocritical assumptions are painfully obvious to the most casual observer.

He began saying to His disciples first of all, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.”

                                                                                                              ~ Luke 12:1b NASB

Most of us are more immature than we’d like to admit. Just remember that if you can not or will not admit the truth of your current condition here on earth, you’ll never be set free in that area of your life because it’s the truth that set us free (John 8:32). But praise be to God that He never denies genuine heart cries! Oh that we might turn, and be healed!

Wade Taylor writes: “Our ‘willing obedience’ is the determining factor in our becoming an overcomer. Being an overcomer is not that we do. Rather, it relates to the intent and issues of our heart, which determines our actions…. as long as we walk in submission and obedience, it can be said that we are an overcomer.” [2] I agree, except I’d extend this statement to include holiness, righteousness, mature sons, the Bride, etc. For this article, let’s just say that our willing obedience to the One who sits on the throne and unto the Lamb is the determining factor in our becoming a mature son.

Two chief characteristics of a son of God is that they serve God with a whole heart (1 Chr 28:9) as well as keeping God’s commandments (Prov 7:1-2: 1 John 2:3-6; Rev 14:12). We are not talking about something yucky and legalistic, but a State ofBeingthat resonates at the same frequency as the Word of God – Jesus. Please be encouraged, because this is a divine work of sanctification that’s done not by your might or your power, but by His Spirit (Zech 4:6). All that God requires from you and me is that we put our best foot forward in obeying His Word and surrendering to His Spirit. Thankfully, the Lord our God will give us all the grace that we need (2 Cor 9:8; Heb 4:16).

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

                                                                                                     ~ Philippians 1:6 NASB

Even though the son’s portion came in the Fullness of Time when Jesus came to earth and purchased it on the cross (Gal 4:4-6), we must experientially appropriate the redemptive gift of sonship the same way that it was acquired. Our journey of “moving unto perfection” is a crucifixion process (much more will be shared in another article). Dying daily is the only way we actually develop into mature, full-grown sons of God (Matt 10:37-39, 16:24; Mark 8:34, 10:21; Luke 9:23, 14:27). The wisdom of God insists upon our permission to crucify our sin nature, and He will only complete the work of co-crucifixion with Christ with our approval. Volunteering freely in the day of God’s power is a continual daily sanctioning of “not my will, but Yours be done” (Matt 6:10). Paul shows us the culmination of being an Adult Son is living a crucified life:

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

                                                                                                         ~ Galatians 2:20 NASB

Remember from our previous “Burnt Offering” teaching that it’s the Good Shepherd of our souls who chooses the best sacrifice that will go on His Altar, not us. So when you find yourself in a miserable place where you just want out (you wanna run for all your worth), just stop, take a breath, stand, and keep your eyes focused on the prize – the Author and Perfecter of your faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross (Heb 12:2).

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations (encounter various trials); Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire (complete), wanting nothing.

                                                                 ~ James 1:2-4 KJV (additional comments mine) 

When you focus on the Way and the Truth and the Life (John 14:6), He revelatory leads you beside the still waters around the Tree of Life, which will enable you to recognize and process the grueling situation(s) you find yourself in according to His Kingdom come. As you keep focused on Him when you encounter various trials, the Lord our God will restore your soul (Psa 23:3). He will guide you in the paths of righteousness for His Name sake (Ps 23:3), and He will prepare a feast of goodness, kindness and love before you in the presence of your enemies (Psa 23:5). And thus, you are well on your way on the path of life (i.e. righteousness) where one of the most arduous tests is overcoming evil with good (Rom 12:21):

But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? … Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

                                                                          ~Matthew 5:44-48 NASB (emphasis mine)

 

Only the highest caliber of saints allows their sin natures to be completely crucified. Through the ages, saints who’ve endured the cross to live in this high and lofty place of common union with the Most High God have been few and far between. People like Enoch, Moses, the Apostle John and Paul were totally separated from the world, which allowed them to live an overcoming life in a crossover place with God, so sacred and beautiful that it begs description. Even though resurrection life (complete crucifixion of worldly and fleshly passions) is not a new grace, it’s been preferred by and fixed on by a small number of extremely devout saints.  One of the new things that God is going to do in our day is to extend this crucified life grace (authentic death, burial, resurrection life reality) to a large company of believers:

that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His suffering, being conformed to His death; in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.

                                                                                                              ~Phil 3:10-12 NASB

We must remember that difficult crucifying circumstances are the painfully beautiful agents that form you into His very image where you are filled with tangible effervescent joy, unwavering powerful love, profound life-giving wisdom, et cetera. “All of you, for all of Him.” It’s really quite a bargain.

Let’s shift for a moment, back to our study of the dispensation of the fullness of times. In order to be complete, we need to thoroughly understand the picture that God is painting. Remember that 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. This means we need to look more into what God says about a precious or mature son.

Almost every time the word “son” is used in the New Testament, it comes from two Greek words:

[1]  teknon = babies or immature sons,

[2]  huios = mature sons (used in Revelation 21:7)

Immature sons of God – teknons – tend to go after their own heart’s desires, and are less likely to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. So basically, a mark of the spiritually immature is that they have not yet learned to act only on the Spirit’s leading. Another mark of spiritual immaturity is most often teknons react, or respond, emotionally or intellectually to various trials they face as well as seeking to protect themselves; therefore, they are “always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Tim 3:7). We can only come to the knowledge of the truth by applying it. Character is forged by facing difficult circumstances, not running away from or hiding from the truth. Truth must be allowed to have its way in our lives if we are going to mature. The Hebrew pictograph for the word “humble” reveals that humility comes when we destroy our walls of self-protection. While the Hebrew pictograph for the word “pride” tells us that we are in pride when we lift ourselves up in our own strength.

God’s Kingdom focuses on growing and maturing sons (huios). Physical growth for people is a function of time. Intellectual growth is a function of learning. While spiritual growth is a function of obedience.  If Jesus was a mature Son (huios), yet He learned obedience by the things He suffered (Heb 5:8), then we should expect to have to walk in the same manner as He did (1 John 2:6):

Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for          obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or obedience resulting in righteousness? I am speaking in human term because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, resulting in  sanctification (holiness).

                                                                ~ Romans 6: 16,19 NASB (emphasis mine)

From these verses we see a pattern where obedience to God’s divine will results in our righteousness, which results in our holiness. We’ll discuss this process more in another article. For now, please allow me to pull out some prevalent Biblical themes with regard to mature sons of God without doing an exhaustive study. Mature or Adult Sons:

[1]  Are heirs of God’s Kingdom (Rom 8:17; Gal 3:29; Heb 11:8-10).

[2]  Serve God with a whole heart and willing mind, i.e. soul (1 Chr 28:9).

[3]  Are chosen to build a dwelling place for God’s sanctuary (1 Chr 28:10).

[4]  Hear, treasure, and observe God’s commandments (Prov 1:8; 2:1; 4:1; 5:7; 7:1,24).

[5]  Love their enemies and they pray for their persecutors (Matt 5:44-45).

[6]  Are continually led by the Spirit of God (Rom 8:14).

[7] Are the pool from which the overcoming bridal company is drawn from (Rev 21:7).

However, all mature sons are not necessarily part of the pure and spotless Bride (Matt 25:1-13; Eph 5:27). One does not guarantee the other. There are wise virgins and foolish virgins within the church. To be part of Christ’s Bride, one must literally go through their own close and personal baptism of fire (i.e., complete crucifixion) where the All-Consuming Fire who sits on the sapphire throne (Ezek 1:26-27, 10:1; Heb 12:29) righteously judges our earth. On this side of heaven in the land of the living, God will be testing the quality of each bridal candidate’s works by fire (1 Cor 3:12-15), so she can be properly clothed for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb with bright and clean fine linen, which is a robe of righteousness (Isa 61:10-11), or as Revelation 19:8 tells us that this fine linen is literally the righteous acts of the saints.

Please do not dismiss this truth lightly. Becoming part of the Bride of Christ is not a salvation issue, it’s about the most intimate, eternal relationship with the King of kings. It’s an eternal reward issue where no one will be exempt. True Christians will either be found by the Judge of heaven and earth, the King of the Ages, to be a wise virgin or a foolish one and I wouldn’t just assume that you are counted in the wise column. Too much is at stake to assume and presume anything; and unfortunately, Christ’s Church has taught us for decades that everyone who is part of the church is part of the pure and spotless Bride. This is not a Scripturally accurate picture. (Please refer to the “Here Comes The Bride http://www.sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2012/03/28/here-comes-the-bride/  article for greater clarification.)
