Jesus is the Melchizedek High Priest. Do we also move in that order?

Jacob’s Dream
Genesis 28:10 Then Jacob departed from Beersheba and went toward Haran. 11 He came to a certain place and spent the night there, because the sun had set; and he took one of the stones of the place and put it under his head, and lay down in that place. 12 He had a dream, and behold, a ladder was set on the earth with its top reaching to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. 13 And behold, the Lord stood above it and said, “I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie, I will give it to you and to your descendants. 14 Your descendants will also be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and in you and in your descendants shall all the families of the earth be blessed. 15 Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” 16 Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.” 17 He was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.”

John 1.50 Jesus answered and said to him, “Because I said to you that I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” 51 And He *said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see the heavens opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”
Ephesians 2.1 And you were dead in your trespasses and sins in which you formerly walked according to the . course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.
Ephesians 3.8 To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, 9 and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things; 10 so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.

Ephesians1:18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might 20 which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

Not only are we kings and priests, this is one humongous subject that even as Protestants has been lost on us.
The baptism in the Spirit has opened it up a lot. I mean, as evangelicals we rightly understood that the Catholic priest idea was a throwback to the Old Covenant lies of priesthood and laity. And we understood that each of us could be an ambassador to others in evangelism.
But running meetings in the Holy Spirit showed us how real this new priesthood is, with people given divine gifts to build the Body.

But that said, it’s only through ministries that have entered further like Ian Clayton, and people I refer to as thirdlevellers who now see that us being caught up experientially in the heavenlies is quite normal, the purpose for gathering, and where we experience being seated with Christ and part of His heavenly Court function.
No more do we pray up to heaven. We let the Holy Spirit bring us to the conviction that we are in Jesus Christ operating out of His Courts.

Whatsoever he bind will have been first bound in heaven, and whatsoever you loose shall have been loosed in heaven.

Psalm 133 states clearly that unity is not an option. The 40,000 CHRISTIAN denominations are actually the reason nothing moves down here....
When we see Psalm 133, we can progress to our priestly role in psalm 134 to blessing the earth, and psalm 149 to casting down all illegitimate rule.

Acts 2 only happened because the 120 gathered together, confessed their faults and were brought into Psalm 133 unity, upon which the Holy Spirit anointing was sent.

At the first ever sermon it says and Peter began to preach and all the other 11 stood with him.

Our unity is in Christ and to the extent that we each individually know we have died in Him and He lives as us. Typically our divisions are rightbrain fears and bitternesses and leftbrain dry doctrine fragments that are not properly washed in the Blood and with His Revelation eyesalve.
