1 ... So, my set-apart brothers ...
1 So, my set-apart brothers (those called to be partakers of the Supernatural/Heavenly Calling), closely consider MESSIAH YAHUSHA, the Great Apostle and High Priest of our confession!
2 For He was trustworthy and obedient to Him Who appointed Him (YAHUAH), just as Moses was trustworthy in all His house.
( IN LIGHT OF THESE FACTS : >> LET'S REVIEW << )
* THAT YAHUSHA THE SON IS DEITY, NOT INFERIOR,
BUT CO-EQUAL AND ONE WITH YAHUAH (THE SAME) ..
* THAT YAHUSHA THE SON IS NOT A SUPER-ANGELIC
BEING, BUT MORE POWERFUL & GREATER THAN ANGELS ..
* THAT YAHUSHA THE SON IS NOT A PROPHET,
BUT THE PROPHET AND GREATER THAN ALL PROPHETS ..
* THAT YAHUSHA THE SON IS THE WORD MADE FLESH ..
* THAT YAHUAH THE FATHER TOOK ON HIMSELF FLESHLY
HUMANITY AS YAHUSHA AND IS GREATER THAN ADAM ..
* THAT THE SON IS VIRGIN BORN - THE YAHUAH-MAN.
* THAT YAHUSHA THE SON CAME TO REDEEM FALLEN MAN
- NOT FALLEN ANGELS …
1 ... So, my set-apart brothers (those called to be partakers of the ‘Supernatural/ Heavenly Calling’…
PARTAKERS (SHARERS TOGETHER). THE SON PARTOOK (TOOK PART) OF HUMAN NATURE THAT WE MIGHT PARTAKE OF DIVINE NATURE.
2 CORINTHIANS 1:7 "AND OUR EXPECTATION FOR YOU IS STEADFAST, BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT AS YOU ARE SHARING IN THE SUFFERINGS, SO YOU ALSO SHARE IN THE CALLING".
IN HEBREWS THE WORD `PARTAKERS’ IS USED ABOUT 6 TIMES AND SPEAKS OF UNION, ONENESS, AND IMPLIES ASSOCIATION WITH (AND SHARERS IN) COMMON EXPERIENCE. IN THIS CASE IT IS WITH YAHUSHA AND HIS BRIDAL ASSEMBLY. IT MEANS TO HAVE A PART, TO SHARE IN COMMON WITH OTHERS. SO IS THE UNION OF YAHUSHA AND HIS FELLOWSHIP, SHARING TOGETHER IN DIVINE LIFE AND SUPERNATURAL EXPERIENCE ... IN REAL ACCOUNTABILITY AND RELATIONSHIPS, NOT JUST SCREEN PROFILES THAT POST ANONYMOUS COMMENTS & SCRIPTURES WITH CRYPTIC USERNAMES (AND NOT EVEN A REAL PHOTO OF THEMSELVES WITH WHICH TO HAVE GENUINE DIALOGUE) ... NO! THESE `SOCIAL' MEDIA STUMBLING BLOCKS ARE ANYTHING BUT `SOCIAL' ... BUT ACTUALLY A COUNTERFEIT FOR GETTING OUT AND HAVING REAL RELATIONSHIPS AND HOLDING THEM BACK FROM BEING `PARTAKERS' OF THE HIGHER CALLING!
PARTAKERS OF A SUPERNATURAL/ HEAVENLY CALLING - NOT AN EARTHLY CALLING. ISRAEL AS A NATION HAD AN EARTHLY CALLING BUT ENDED IN FAILURE. THIS EARTHLY CALLING HAD EARTHLY LAND POSSESSIONS, EARTHLY BLESSING, PROMISES, A MATERIAL TEMPLE, PHYSICAL CITY AND SACRIFICES, WORSHIP AND (WHAT BECAME) A RELIGION. IT WAS A CALL THAT CAME FROM HEAVEN, BUT WHOSE LOCATION AND DESTINY WAS IN THE EARTHLY PHYSICAL DIMENSION.
BUT YAHUSHA’S NEW BRIDE HAS A CALL THAT COMES FROM THE HEAVEN TO EARTH, TO TAKE A HEAVENLY PEOPLE FROM THE EARTH INTO A NEW ROYAL PLAIN OF EXISTENCE IN A SUPERNATURAL ETERNAL REIGN. ALL THAT PERTAINS TO THE ASSEMBLY IS OF SUPERNATURAL HEAVENLY ORIGIN AND LOCATION. IT’S NOT ON EARTH NOR OF THE EARTH. THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE IS TO LEAD US TO DIVINE, HEAVENLY THINGS.
THE ASSEMBLY IS A DELIVERED PEOPLE, REDEEMED OUT OF THE EARTH, TO FULFIL YAHUSHA’S PURPOSE IN THE EARTH AS THEY ARE BEING TRAINED AND TRANSFORMED FOR THE DESTINATION OF A NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH. ALL THINGS REGARDING YAHUSHA ARE DIVINE AND SUPERNATURAL :
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL KINGDOM - 2 TIM 4:8 (crown of righteousness)
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL TREASURE - MATT 6:20-21 (treasures in Heaven)
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL CITIZENSHIP - PHIL 3:20 (Heavenly destination)
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL INHERITANCE - 1 PET 1:4 (Incorrupt Inherit)
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL COUNTRY - HEB 11:16 (Better Heavenly Country)
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL HIGH PRIEST - HEB 9:2 & 7:26
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL REWARD - MATT 5:12 (Better Heavenly Reward)
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL PERSON - JOHN 3:31 (The Heavenly One is above all)
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL HOPE - COL 1:25-27 (Yahusha in you, the hope of esteem)
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL CITY - REV 3:12 (I will make them a pillar in My New Temple)
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL JERUSALEM - HEB 12:22 (The Heavenly Mt Zion )
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL HOME - JOHN 14:2 (In My Father's House are many Mansions)
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL FATHER - MATT 6:9 … JOHN 17:11 (Yahuah)
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL FAMILY - EPH 3:15 (the whole family in H & E is Named after)
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL ASSEMBLY - HEB 12:23 (Heavenly Firstborn Assembly)
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL IMAGE - 1 COR 15:48-49 (Flesh & Blood cannot inherit)
* IT’S A SUPERNATURAL BLESSING - EPH 1:3 (Spiritual Blessings in High Places)
* IT’S A NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH - REV 21:1
NOTE IN THE CONCORDANCE THE USE OF THIS WORD `HEAVENLY’ (IE SUPERNATURAL) IN PAUL’S LETTER TO THE HEBREWS. FOR THE HEBREW BELIEVER, WHO’D BEEN (HIS WHOLE LIFETIME) ATTACHED TO THE LABORIOUS LIFESTYLE OF AN EARTHLY TEMPLE, EARTHLY PRIESTHOOD, EARTHLY SANCTUARY SERVICE, EARTHLY SACRIFICES, EARTHLY CITY OF JERUSALEM, AND EARTHLY PROMISED LAND, AND THE BLESSINGS - ALL OF THIS WAS EXTREMELY HARD FOR THE FLESH TO LET GO OF IN EXCHANGE FOR ALL THAT IS HEAVENLY, AND WHICH HAS ITS SUPERNATURAL, INVISIBLE, HEAVENLY COUNTERPART. THE THINGS WHICH ARE SEEN ARE ONLY TEMPORAL SHADOWS BUT THE UNSEEN THINGS ARE ETERNAL.
IN EXODUS 19 YAHUAH CALLED ISRAEL AS A NATION AND EXPLAINED HIS PLAN, PURPOSE, AND DESTINY FOR THEM: ‘YOU HAVE SEEN WHAT I DID TO THE EGYPTIANS, AND HOW I DELIVERED YOU ON EAGLES’ WINGS AND BROUGHT YOU TO MYSELF. NOW IF YOU WILL INDEED OBEY MY VOICE AND KEEP MY COVENANT, THEN YOU WILL BE A SPECIAL TREASURE TO ME ABOVE ALL PEOPLE AND NATIONS - FOR ALL THE EARTH IS MINE. AND YOU WILL BE TO ME A KINGDOM OF PRIESTS AND A SET-APART NATION.’ ISRAEL FAILED TO OBEY THE CONDITIONS, AND NEVER FULFILLED THIS CALL OF YAHUAH. SO THE EXACT SAME CALL IS NOW GIVEN TO YAHUSHA’S NEW BRIDE TO FULFIL.
THIS NEW SUPERNATURAL / HEAVENLY CALLING ENDS ALL NATURAL AND EARTHLY CALLINGS AND LOCATIONS. FLESH, LINEAGE, BLOODLINES AND RACIAL DISTINCTIONS CEASE IN YAHUSHA. THERE IS NEITHER JEW NOR GENTILE, SLAVE NOR FREE, BUT A NEW DIVINE SUPERNATURAL CREATION IN YAHUSHA AND THIS ALONE IS WHAT MATTERS BEFORE HIM.
2 CORINTHIANS 5:17 "IF ANYONE IS IN YAHUSHA, HE IS A NEW CREATION - OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY AND BEHOLD, ALL THINGS HAVE BECOME NEW!"
GALATIANS 6:15 "FOR IN YAHUSHA MESSIAH NEITHER CIRCUMCISION OR UNCIRCUMCISION MATTERS, FOR IT IS A NEW CREATION"
GALATIANS 3:26 "FOR YOU'RE ALL SONS OF YAHUAH THROUGH BELIEF IN YAHUSHA MESSIAH. THERE NEITHER JEW NOR GREEK, SLAVE NOR FREE, MALE NOR FEMALE, FOR YOU ARE ALL ONE IN YAHUSHA MESSIAH. AND IF YOU ARE YAHUSHA'S THEN YOU ARE ABRAHAM'S SEED, AND HEIRS ACCORDING TO THE PROMISE!"
ALL BELIEVERS (SONS AND DAUGHTERS) OF THE ALMIGHTY YAHUSHA, ARE CALLED WITH THE SAME CALLING AND THE SAME PURPOSE IN HIS MIND AS HE IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS. IT DEPENDS ON HOW FAR WE ARE WILLING TO OBEY THAT CALL. OUR OBEDIENCE TO THE SUPERNATURAL / HEAVENLY CALLING WILL DETERMINE OUR ESTEEM IN THE RESURRECTION. SO WHICH `CALL’ DO WE PUT FIRST -
THE SUPERNATURAL OR EARTHLY?
ALL IMMERSED BRIDAL BELIEVERS HAVE THIS SUPERNATURAL CALLING. SO PAUL IS TELLING THESE HEBREW BELIEVERS TO SEE THAT THEIR CALLING `IN YAHUSHA’ IS FAR HIGHER AND BETTER THAN THEIR PREVIOUS FLESHLY CALLING AS A NATION, FOR EARTHLY CALLINGS ARE NOW SUBJECT TO THE SUPERNATURAL CALLING!
1 ... So, my set-apart brothers (those called to be partakers of the ‘Supernatural/ Heavenly Calling’, closely consider MESSIAH YAHUSHA, the Apostle and High Priest of our confession ...
'CLOSELY CONSIDER' MEANS TO 'FIX THE EYES AND THE MIND ON YAHUSHA WITH ALL OUR ATTENTION, TO CONTEMPLATE AND TO UNDERSTAND'. WE ARE MOULDED (ie behave) BY WHAT WE THINK, FIXATE UPON AND WHAT WE CONSIDER MOST. IT IS TO THOUGHTFULLY, CLOSELY AND ATTENTIVELY CONSIDER. TO THINK ABOUT YAHUSHA!
PHILIPPIANS 4:8 "FOR THE REST BROTHERS, WHATEVER IS TRUE, WHATEVER IS NOBLE, WHATEVER IS RIGHTEOUS, WHATEVER IS CLEAN, WHATEVER IS LOVELY, WHATEVER IS OF GOOD REPORT, IF THERE IS ANY UPRIGHTNESS AND IF THERE IS ANY PRAISE – THINK ON THESE THINGS". BE FILLED WITH GOODNESS!
A P O S T L E
IT IS WORTHY OF NOTE HOW PAUL OPENS ALL HIS LETTERS TO THE ASSEMBLIES WITH THIS PHRASE: “PAUL, AN APOSTLE (EMISSARY) OF YAHUSHA MESSIAH…´, BUT IN THIS LETTER TO THE HEBREWS IT IS ABSENT, FOR WE ARE TOLD TO INSTEAD CLOSELY CONSIDER THE APOSTLE - YAHUSHA MESSIAH! THE CORINTHIAN BELIEVERS MAY CONSIDER THE APOSTLES PETER
HERE'S ANOTHER WONDERFUL STATEMENT - WE ARE TO CONSIDER YAHUSHA MESSIAH (THAT IS, THE ANOINTED DELIVERER). AND THIS IS HIS TWOFOLD OFFICE :
* YAHUSHA AS THE APOSTLE :
- TYPIFIED AND SHADOWED FOR US IN MOSES (HEB.3:1-6).
* YAHUSHA AS THE HIGH PRIEST :
- TYPIFIED AND SHADOWED FOR US IN AARON (HEB.5:1-6).
AND PAUL, AND OTHER APOSTLES, AND BE DIVIDED OVER MINISTRIES AND VARIOUS PERSONALITIES IN THEIR CARNAL AND BABY-STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT, BUT WE HAVE ONLY BEEN GIVEN ONE INFALLIBLE AND PERFECT PRINCELY LEADER (APOSTLE). WITHOUT HIM THERE WOULD BE NO OTHER LEADERS, AND ALL TRUE LEADERS WILL ONLY
POINT TO YAHUSHA MESSIAH AND ENCOURAGE BELIEVERS TO CLOSELY CONSIDER AND FIXATE ON HIM, NOT STANDING IN THE DOORWAY, DRAWING PEOPLE TO THEMSELVES OR THEIR OWN PERSONALITIES BUT ALWAYS UPHOLDING YAHUSHA MESSIAH AND HIM IMPALED FOR MANY.
‘APOSTLE’ MEANS A SENT ONE, A MESSENGER, EMISSARY, MISSION-ARY, PRINCELY LEADER AND AMBASSADOR … AND YAHUSHA WAS DEFINITELY ALL THESE THINGS AND SO MUCH MORE!! YAHUSHA ALWAYS SPOKE OF BEING SENT BY THE FATHER AND NOT COMING IN HIS OWN WILL BUT HIS FATHER’S WHO SENT HIM. HE IS THE APOSTLE … THE SENT ONE!
"WAS YAHUSHA JUST TALKING TO HIMSELF THEN?"
IN ORDER TO DEMONSTRATE THE CORRECT BEHAVIOUR OF A HUMBLE SERVANT, YAHUSHA NEEDED TO HAVE A MASTER OR FATHER TO ADDRESS, TALK TO AND LEAD OTHERS TOO IN COMPASSION AND HUMILITY. IF HE JUST ROCKED UP AND STARTED DEMANDING POWER AND WORSHIP AS THE CREATOR AND FATHER (WHICH HE ACTUALLY WAS) HE WOULD NOT BE THE TRUSTWORTHY WITNESS OF BEHAVIOUR REQUIRED.
FOR 4000 YEARS HE WANTED TO BE KNOWN AS A FATHER FIGURE, AND NOW HE WANTED TO BE KNOWN AS A FATHER & A SON. SO WHILE HE WAS INDEED ALAHIM IN THE FLESH, IT WAS THAT SAME FLESHLY HUMANITY AND SHARED HUMAN EXPERIENCE THAT RESTRICTED HIM, FOR PRIOR TO THIS HE WAS DIVINE ONLY, BUT IN THE FLESH HE WAS LIMITED BY FLESHLY HUNGER, THIRST, PAIN, TEMPTATION (NOT TO MENTION THIS DIMENSION) ...
SO IN ESSENCE HE WAS SEPARATED FROM THE PURE DIVINITY OF THE HEAVENLY DIMENSION, SO FOR HIM TO PRAY, ADRESS A FATHER FIGURE AND GAIN STRENGTH FROM THAT DIMENSION, SOUNDS COMPLETELY PLAUSIBLE TO ME ... INSTEAD OF JUST MOCKING AND SAYING `SO HE WAS TALKING TO HIMSELF THEN WHEN HE TAUGHT THE DISCIPLES HOW TO PRAY WAS HE ???'
YAHUSHA WAS SENT FROM THE BOSOM OF THE FATHER AS THE FATHER'S MESSENGER, VOICE, SPOKESMAN AND AMBASSADOR. JOHN'S GOSPEL IS THE GOSPEL THAT ESPECIALLY BRINGS THIS THOUGHT OF HIS BEING SENT FROM THE FATHER.
YAHUAH THE FATHER SENT HIS SON! THEN THE SON SENT FORTH OTHERS WHO ARE CALLED APOSTLES. THE TWELVE APOSTLES OF THE LAMB. THEN THERE ARE ASCENSION - GIFT - MINISTRIES WHICH INCLUDE APOSTLES. IN THE LAST DAYS THERE WILL ALSO BE FALSE-APOSTLES WHO ARISE.
THE SAFEST AND SUREST WAY TO KEEP IN LINE WITH THE WORD OF YAHUAH IS TO CONSIDER THE APOSTLE YAHUSHA MESSIAH! THE BRIDAL ASSEMBLY WILL BE BROUGHT TO PERFECTION THROUGH THE MINISTRY OF YAHUSHA, THE GREATEST APOSTLE AND OUR PRINCELY LEADER, MANIFEST IN HIS LAST-DAY TWELVE APOSTLES, SYMBOLISED IN THE TWELVE STARS AS THE CROWN ON THE WOMAN, THE BRIDE OF YAHUSHA IN REV 12:1.
CAN YOU IMAGINE YAHUSHA GOING BACK TO SOME OLD TYPE OR SHADOW AND USING IT IN HIS NEW CITY, WHEN EVERYTHING FROM THE OLD BLOOD-COVENANT WAS LITERALLY TRANSFORMED AND INJECTED INTO THE NEW BLOOD-COVENANT THROUGH YAHUSHA’S PERFECT BLOOD? NO!! WITHOUT DISPUTING THEIR HISTORICAL IMPORTANCE IN THE STORY OF REDEMPTION, THE FIRST 12 ELDERS (APOSTLES) ARE NOT JACOB’S SONS (MOST OF WHICH WERE DOWNRIGHT WICKED). THESE MEN SERVED THEIR PURPOSE IN FULFILLING YAHUAH'S PROMISES TO ABRAHAM, IN ESTABLISHING A ROYAL NATION TO SHADOW-FORTH HIS DIVINE TRUTHS IN. OLD ISRAEL AFTER THE FLESH WAS DIVORCED AND THE NEW BRIDE HAS BEEN STAMPED AND SEALED WITH ALL THE BLOOD-COVENANT RESPONSIBILITIES AND PROMISES THROUGH A NEW AND LIVING WAY - NEW BLOOD - NEW BEHAVIOUR ...
1. THE FIRST 12 ELDERS stand at the close of the Old Blood-Covenant and assist in the opening of the New Blood-Covenant Assembly. They are of the Old, yet also of the New. They had lived at the overlapping of them both. They are distinctly and uniquely the "12 Apostles of the Lamb", for they were with Him in His Earthly walk, making them unique.
2. THE LAST 12 ELDERS stand at the close of the (old-earth) Assembly and at the opening of the (new-earth) Transformed New Bridal Assembly. The last Twelve are the completion of the Assembly, and are seen in Revelation, as the twelve stars on the head of the woman in Rev.12. They will a part of the Last Day Revolution for Behavioural Maturity under the outpouring of Yahusha’s Spirit at the close of this old earth, before Yahusha destroys everything with the sheer magnitude of His radiating perfect presence and makes all things NEW!
WHICH ALL SHADOW AND SPEAK OF YAHUSHA THE `SENT ONE’, SENT OF THE FATHER TO DELIVER HIS BRIDE FROM THE BONDAGE AND SLAVERY OF SATAN’S KINGDOM WITHIN THEM.
MOSES IS CONSIDERED THE APOSTLE (PRINCELY LEADER) OF THE OLD BLOOD-COVENANT ASSEMBLY IN THE WILDERNESS, JUST AS YAHUSHA IS THE APOSTLE OF THE NEW BLOOD-COVENANT ASSEMBLY. MOSES WAS THE `SENT ONE’ - SENT OF YAHUAH TO DELIVER HIS PEOPLE FROM PHARAOH AND EGYPTS CRUEL SLAVERY AND HARD BONDAGE,
H I G H P R I E S T
YAHUSHA IS WONDERFULLY TYPIFIED IN AARON AS THE HIGH PRIEST OF THE OLD BLOOD-COVENANT, AS DEALT WITH IN HEB.5:1-6. THE WORD 'PRIEST' ALSO MEANS 'PRINCELY LEADER OR MINISTER', AND YAHUSHA IS OUR HIGH PRIEST AND PRINCELY LEADER.
FOR FIFTEEN HUNDRED YEARS, YAHUAH TAUGHT THE NATION OF ISRAEL THE NEED OF PRIESTHOOD AND A MEDIATION MINISTRY. THEY LEARNT TO DEPEND ON THEIR HIGH PRIEST, UPON HIS MINISTRY OF SACRIFICE AND ATONEMENT, AND HIM AS THEIR REPRESENTATIVE BEFORE THE ESTEEM OF YAHUAH IN THE TABERNACLE OR TEMPLE SERVICES. ALL ISRAEL WOULD HAVE TO 'CLOSELY CONSIDER' THEIR HIGH PRIEST, ESPECIALLY ON THE
GREAT DAY OF ATONEMENT CEREMONIES, AS THE WHOLE NATION WAS ATONED FOR AND REPRESENTED IN HIM, THEIR HIGH PRIEST. THEN THERE WERE THE NUMEROUS DAIILY MINISTRATIONS AS WELL AS THE APPOINTED FEASTS OF YAHUAH ALSO. ISRAEL HAD TO CONTINUALLY CONSIDER THEIR HIGH PRIEST - AARON - AS THE ONLY YAHUAH-ESTABLISHED WAY OF APPROACH TO HIM. THE HEBREWS HAD DONE SO.
BUT NOW, THEY ARE TO TAKE THEIR EYES OFF THE EARTHLY AND AARONIC PRIESTHOOD AND SACRIFICES AND TEMPLE AND 'CLOSELY CONSIDER' YAHUSHA THE HIGH PRIEST OF THEIR CONFESSION. HE IS THE HEAVENLY HIGH PRIEST, AND PRIEST UPON THE THRONE OF YAHUAH.
HERE THE TWO OFFICES ARE LINKED TOGETHER IN THE ONE PERSON AND BRING OUT TWO GREAT TRUTHS. TYPIFIED AND SHADOWED IN MOSES AND AARON WE SEE THAT MOSES AND AARON WERE BROTHERS, AND BOTH RECEIVED A PART OF THE SAME MINISTRY :
1. MOSES WAS THE APOSTLE, OR 'THE SENT ONE'. YAHUAH SENT HIM WITH HIS OWN NAME TO BRING DELIVERANCE TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, AND THE WHOLE ASSEMBLY IN THE WILDERNESS WAS BUILT UPON THIS FOUNDATION. HE RECEIVED THE REVELATION AND THE WORD OF YAHUAH. HE HAD SIGNS AND WONDERS AND THE MINISTRY OF THE APOSTLE MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE IN THE OLDER TEXTS. ALL PROPHETS AND KINGS AND PRIESTS HAD TO BUILD ON MOSES' FOUNDATION - THE DIVINE LAWS OF YAHUAH ...
THE FEASTS OF YAHUAH, THE TABERNACLE, AND THE SACRIFICIAL OFFERINGS AND THE AARONIC PRIESTHOOD. ALL WERE FOUNDED IN THE REVELATION GIVEN TO MOSES.
MOSES WAS THAT `SENT ONE’ THE APOSTLE OF THE OLD BLOOD-COVENANT. AND HE WAS OF COURSE A SHADOW OF YAHUSHA WHO WOULD BE THE GREAT APOSTLE AND FULFUL ALL THE MINISTRY SHADOWED IN MOSES.
2. AARON WAS THE HIGH PRIEST, OR PRINCE. MOSES WAS SENT TO EGYPT, BUT AARON WAS HIGH PRIEST IN THE WILDERNESS, IN THE TABERNACLE - NOT IN EGYPT. ALL AARON'S PRIESTLY MINISTRY WAS EXECUTED IN THE TABERNACLE WHEN IT WAS SET UP, AFTER THE DELIVERANCE FROM EGYPT. AARON COULD NOT BE PRIEST IN EGYPT. HIS PRIESTLY MINISTRY COULD ONLY COME INTO OPERATION AND EFFECT WHEN THE NATION IN THE WILDERNESS WAS ESTABLISHED.
LIKEWISE YAHUSHA COULD NOT BE HIGH-PRIEST ON EARTH (EGYPT) BUT ONLY IN THE HEAVENLY TABERNACLE, AFTER THE PASSOVER DELIVERANCE HAD BEEN ACCOMPLISHED, AND IN RELATION TO THE MINISTRY OF HIS BRIDE IN THE WILDERNESS OF THIS WORLD. HIS PRIESTHOOD COULD NOT BE EFFECTIVE AND IN OPERATION ON EARTH, AS HIS ORDER WAS NOT AFTER AARON OR THE LEVITES IN THE FLESH.
BOTH MOSES AND AARON SHADOW DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF YAHUSHA'S MINISTRY. ON EARTH HE IS THE APOSTLE. IN HEAVEN HE IS THE HIGH PRIEST. YAHUAH ORIGINALLY INTENDED FOR MOSES TO BE BOTH APOSTLE AND HIGH PRIEST, TO HAVE BOTH OFFICES UNITED IN HIMSELF, IN ORDER TO BE A FULLER SHADOW OF MESSIAH. UNFORTUNATELY, UNBELIEF CAUSED THE OFFICES TO BE SEPARATED, A PART TO HIM AND A PART TO AARON.
BUT IN YAHUSHA MESSIAH BOTH OFFICES ARE UNITED, AS TYPIFIED AND SHADOWED IN MOSES AND AARON AND AARON'S SONS IN MINISTRY WITH HIM.
IN SHADOW-TRUTH, IT IS REPRESENTED AS YAHUSHA COMING FROM `THE ARK OF COVENANT ESTEEM - THE THRONE OF YAHUAH’ OUT TO THE BRAZEN ALTAR (THE TORTURE STAKE) AND THEN FROM THE ALTAR/STAKE BACK TO THE THRONE AGAIN. THIS IS THE DIVINE CYCLE OF THE MINISTRY OF YAHUSHA FOR HIS BRIDE IN DELIVERANCE.
THE NEW CREATURE/ CREATION, THAT YAHUAH METAMORPHED INTO IS CALLED YAHUSHA. FROM HIS SACRIFICE HE WENT TO HEAVEN/SHAMAYIM AND CLEANSED IT WITH HIS BLOOD. THEN HE WAS COMPLETELY ESTEEMED. HEAVEN WAS SHUT UP BECAUSE HIS NEW FORM WOULD DESTROY ANY -
THING WITH SIN IN IT. THE DIMENSIONAL BARRIER PROTECTS THOSE TRANSFORMING INTO NEW CREATURES. YAHUSHA IS NOW THE ALMIGHTY ALAHIM. HE SAID 'ALL POWER IN HEAVEN AND EARTH IS GIVEN TO ME'. WE ARE TO WORSHIP YAHUSHA ALONE, FOR HE IS THE CREATOR (THE ALEF TAU). REMEMBER THE FATHER HAS METORMOPHED INTO YAHUSHA FOR DELIVERANCE.
1 ... So, my set-apart brothers (those called to be partakers of the ‘Supernatural/ Heavenly Calling’, closely consider MESSIAH YAHUSHA, the Apostle and High Priest of our confession ...
OF OUR CONFESSION -
(OR PROFESSION - MEANING `A SAYING OF THE SAME THING’ OR `TO SAY PUBLICLY OR TO CONFESS). YAHUSHA MESSIAH BECAME THE PUBLIC CONFESSION OF THE HEBREW BELIEVERS AS THEY SPOKE OF HIM AS THEIR APOSTLE AND HIGH PRIEST - TO DECLARE BELIEF IS WHAT HIS WORD SAYS, HOLDING FAST TO THE CONFESSION OF THEIR BELIEF WITHOUT WAVERING!
DON’T FORGET THAT CONFESSION OF YAHUSHA AS THE MESSIAH MEANT EXCOMMUNICATION FOR THE HEBREWS (JEWS) OF THAT DAY BUT TO CONFESS HIM AS THE ACTUAL SON OF ALAHIM (OR YAHUAH IN THE FLESH) WOULD CERTAINLY BRING THEM UNDER THE DEATH PENALTY (AND THE SAME HATEFUL ANGER & UNBELIEF HASN’T CHANGED IN THE BODY TODAY !)
IN PHILIPPIANS 2:9-11 WE ARE TOLD THAT 'EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, AND EVERY TONGUE WILL ONE DAY CONFESS THAT YAHUSHA MESSIAH IS MASTER, TO THE ESTEEM OF YAHUAH THE FATHER'. IF WE CONFESS HIM NOW BEFORE MEN, HE WILL CONFESS US BEFORE HIS FATHER IN HEAVEN, AND THE SET-APART ANGELS. WE MUST CONFESS WHAT HIS WORD PROCLAIMS. AS WE CONFESS HIS WORD, HE IS THE APOSTLE AND HIGH PRIEST OF OUR CONFESSION. WE CONFESS THAT YAHUSHA IS ALAHIM AND MESSIAH (HEB.1), AND THAT HE BECAME MAN (HEB.2), AND THAT HE'S THE APOSTLE & HIGH PRIEST (HEB.3).
A collection of learned ones, a company, gathering, appointment, a fixed
time or season, a feast or festival, the congregation or the place of meeting, also a signal (as appointed beforehand), appointed sign or time), a place or site of solemn assembly.
“Not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the day drawing near”.
“They were continually devoting themselves to the Apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer”.
“For where two or more have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”
“When they had arrived and gathered the Assemblies together, they began to report all things that Yahusha had done with them and how He had opened a door of belief to the Nations”.
“When they had appointed Elders for them in every Assembly, having prayed with fasting, they commended them to Yahusha in whom they had believed”.
1 CORINTHIANS 11:18
“For, in the first place, when you come together as an Assembly, I hear that divisions exist among you; and in part I believe it”.
1 CORINTHIANS 16:19
“The Assemblies of Asia greet you. Aquila and Prisca greet you heartily in Yahusha with the Assembly that is in their house”.
“But if you want anything beyond this, it shall be settled in the lawful Assembly”.
“John, to the seven assemblies that are in Asia: Esteem to you and peace, from Yahusha Who is and Who was and Who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne”.
“Saying, "What you see, write in a book and send to the Seven Assemblies: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and to Laodicea."
“The secret of the seven stars which you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden lampstands. The seven stars are the Messengers of the seven Assemblies. The seven lampstands are the seven Assemblies”.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Assemblies. To him who overcomes I will give to eat of the Tree of Life, which is in the Paradise of my Alahim”.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Assemblies. He who overcomes won't be harmed by the second death”.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Assemblies. To him who overcomes, to him I will give of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a New Name written, which no one knows but he who receives it”.
I will kill her children with death, and all the Assemblies will know that I am He Who searches the minds and hearts. I will give to each one of you according to your works and behaviour”.
“Greet one another with a set-apart kiss. The Assemblies of Yahusha greet you”.
It is necessary to show the all these Scriptures to get the gist of Yahusha’s Assemblies. Back in the early days these Assemblies were squashed and scattered by the Jews and the Romans. The Jews insisted that their Synagogue (and the Judaism founded in Babylon) was the true Assembly, while the Romans later insisted that their Christian Church was the true Assembly. BOTH HAD (and still have) NOTHING TO DO WITH YAHUSHA’S SUPERNATURAL ASSEMBLY IN HIS REIGN. SO WHERE IS IT?
The early Assemblies were also fighting amongst themselves, lost the supernatural presence of Yahusha, and were scattered because of differing opinions. The Apostolic Ministries to the Assemblies through Yahusha’s Spirit was then registered null and void. So false religions and their doctrines are still fighting even today. Men seek their own glory, not the presence of Yahusha by His Spirit.
Today Yahusha is moving amongst His people, awakening the importance of Assembling for His Spiritual Guidance, through the new construction of Assemblies again. Yahusha said 'where two or more are gathered together IN MY NAME, there am I in their midst!' With His presence so poignant in the Assemblies, He starts His works (as we know) from nothing, using the lowest and basest parts of humanity to astound and confound the
`so called’ wise.
Yahusha’s Assemblies are immersed into His Supernatural Reign, and they have nothing whatsoever to do with Judaism or Christianity. Yahusha’s Reign is not religion, not of the flesh, not man-made and completely indifferent to their rules and doctrines.
To be part of Yahusha’s Assembly, Scripture tells us that men and women must behave according to the qualifications in Scripture. ANY MINISTRY NEEDED WILL MANIFEST ITSELF THROUGH SCRIPTURAL BEHAVIOUR.
Everything in an Assembly is guided by the supernatural presence of Yahusha Himself. It is a miraculous experience watching Yahusha grow His Assembly from a planted seed and a calling. Remember, this is totally apart from any man-made religion.
You cannot set up Yahusha’s Assemblies like the Jews and Christians have done. It must be a supernatural experience from beginning to end. As Yahusha is present within those Assemblies, we see Him working in the lives and families of those committed. Be very careful of who you associate yourself with, for YAHUSHA SAID THE WEEDS HAVE BEEN PLANTED AMONG THE WHEAT (TEN VIRGINS - SYMBOL OF HIS BRIDE) AND THEY ARE WORKING AGAINST ASSEMBLIES BECAUSE IT REVEALS THEM THROUGH SUPERNATURAL BEHAVIOUR.
THESE UNWISE VIRGINS HAVE NO OIL (NO SPIRIT OR ACTIVE BEHAVIOUR) BUT ARE CARPETBAGGERS AFTER COIN AND LEGACY. SO TURN THEIR CHANGE-TABLES UPSIDE DOWN AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY, FOR THEY SPREAD TOXIC POISON AGAINST YAHUSHA’S WAY IN ASSEMBLING US TO COMMUNE AND SUP WITH YAHUSHA’S LOVING-KINDNESS.
THESE OFFENDERS ARE WORSE THAN ANYTHING THE WORLD HAS TO OFFER. SO THIS IS YOUR ENEMY!
BE AWAKENED TO THE TRUE CALLING OF YAHUSHA’S BRIDAL ASSEMBLY TODAY AND DO NOT NEGLECT GATHERING TOGETHER IN SINCERITY, SPIRIT & TRUTH - AS SO MANY ARE IN THE HABIT OF DOING TODAY !
