Life In the Melchizedek Order V - Melchizedek Normality

Did you get the last post?
I've sort of been pondering it ever since. I know I wrote it....but since when does that mean anything? Many are the ministers who don't get what they preach! Ern Baxter used to say he was going to buy the tapes so he could listen to what he had said under the anointing.

Peter clearly never bought his tapes in Acts 2, because his first sermon was clear....this gospel is for everyone! Paul had to fill him in again later.

Listen ! I said the way electrons and all these infinitiscemal particles behave is a picture of the Melchizedek order! But they are not special, freaky once in a lifetime occurrences...they are what you and I call "the material world". When in fact there's hardly anything material there!

This is what I received in my spirit just now as I was rubbing down a piano.

I feel Jesus just said this:
"When I wrote through Paul in 1 Corinthians 14:26 What then shall we say, brothers? When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church.

This was not a suggestion. This was not a special one off incident.
This was how I run My Church. This is how you learn how to live My normal life which is in the Order of Melchizedek.

For years you have mocked the Anglican church for their liturgy. But you have a liturgy!
Every Hillsongs conference, every new Church, every Rob Rufus Conference has a worship team and liturgy. It is good to have skilled musicians. Anointed musicians.

But don't underestimate Me. I want My church back! Musicians are not some special priesthood class. I arranged for My Church to run on 1 Corinthians 12-14 and I gave very little other details, giving you tremendous freedom. What do You do? Forget the few details I give you, which would ensure you running the church in My order, and invent your own details and wonder why I am not there in Your midst as I should be?"

I now understand with great impact why the worship team here have been feeling so uneasy in the last few months as they have caught something of God's heart on the way meetings are to be run.

Yes...your dream may as well be a diary report....I'm sure when they went to Atlanta it was exactly like that. Or when Julie Ursula or Lydia and others were noshing away in a restaurant in Hong Kong.

You see my link to Zerubbabel. Their form was to invade a home somewhere central either in the UK or USA....and just see God work as people shared the pitfalls and joys of walking out Christ as them.

Actually this type of thing is THE DIRECT fulfilment of the Feast of Booths....and represents that inward work that God does to form Christ in His Body before The BIG ONE.....the Feast of Ingathering.

The equivalent for the disciples was the series of Upper Room experiences both before the Cross and after...leading up to the Inundation in Acts 2. This was their "Feast of Ingathering".Although prophetically speaking it was only really the 2nd it was only a little one....3,000. Still not bad huh? But you can imagine the size of the next wave we're heading for!!!!!! So the Feast cycle is just a set of ever-expanding glory waves that have been going on since Pentecost.
