THE TWO OFFICES AND ANOINTING OF OUR COMING MESSIAH WILL UNITE BOTH HOUSES OF THE COVENANT PEOPLE OF GOD IN THE CRUCIBLE OF THE END-TIME DRAMA.
“Candles at the Wall”
The two witnesses are showcased in the two Shabbat candles. And two candles are presented on our dining tables in Christendom. The theme of ‘two witnesses’, God’s Grace and His Righteous Rule (Torah/Law), is seen throughout both Old and New Testaments.
Melchizedek, as king of Salem (peace), was also priest of God Most High. So our Messiah as a priest/king in the Order of Melchizedek has dual offices or authority. He rules in the priestly or religious realm ministering to men in order to bring them into union with God. Melchizedek also bears rule in the royal kingdom authority of the Throne of David. The burden and anointing for God’s righteous reign is centered in the royal (Jewish), House of Judah. Our coming Messiah, our Lord Jesus Christ, is therefore both priest and king. This is a very important point and the key to our understanding of what eventually happens in the end-time drama and the latter day reconciliation between the Church and the Jewish nation in Israel. A word study through the scriptures of the word “elect” reveals that there is one Chosen people. The Church (or Congregation) of Yeshua Hamashich/Jesus Christ will enter the crucible, along with the nation of Israel. There they will both to enter into refinement to emerge as a single remnant Elect.
The scriptures above clearly show us the dual anointing in the Order of Melchizedek. And we can plainly see that there is no division and no dispensational separation. The wall of partition between Israel and the Church is artificial. It has been crafted by Freemason dispensationalists. They have infiltrated the Church and are trying to set the end-time agenda against the true and faithful witness of God Most High. The Church-Israel partition is like a brick wall running right through a house. It is a man-made work of masonry. The dispensationalism we see in the evangelical family separates Israel from the Congregation/Church of God Most High. This may reflect present day religious reality. And the present day convenience of the troll-like principalities and powers try to keep and preserve the status quo. But our “us and them” dispensationalism does not describe the true and genuine future eternal reality that this world will see established forever by our returning Messiah. Ezekiel demonstrates the this dual authority in Ezekiel 37. Messiah’s dual authority in the Order of Melchizedek comes with the stick of Judah and the stick of Joseph! Our returning Christ, the Messiah, the Anointed One, carries BOTH of these! The two sticks of Ezekiel 37 are united as one is in His hand!
So what is the message here that we are not hearing in Church. The Breach of Jeroboam will be healed. End-time holy history will see ALL of God’s covenant people as ONE BIG REUNITED HAPPY FAMILY regathered from BOTH houses of Israel. They will come together as one single undivided remnant Elect.
How will this happen?
God says that His covenant people are chosen in the furnace of affliction.
10 Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver;
I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction. Isa.48:10 KJV
Israel and the Church will both go into the crucible of the 70th week together during those last 7 years of this age. In this process Messiah, performing His wonders inside His saints and inside His nation will bring both houses of Israel into confluence and unity.
Will the Congregation of Israel, (the Church), and Israel in the Jewish House of Judah be united by politics or ecumenical efforts of well-meaning and ambitious churchmen? No, not at all. How does God say this union of the Kingdom and the Priesthood under Yehoveh-God will come about?
6 Not by might, (military), nor by power, (politics),
But BY MY SPIRIT saith the Lord.” See Zechariah 4:2,3,&6 KJV
The Church and the nation of Israel are not yet at the point where they realize or “see” the reality of their ultimate reunion and restoration as the Commonwealth and Congregation of Israel. And why not? The Apostle Paul brings God’s Word to us on the matter. He says that Israel, meaning both houses, the Jewish house and the Church house, are both in partial blindness. (Rom. 11:25)
25 ………..blindness in part has happened to Israel
until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.
26 And so all Israel will be saved,
This brings us a very important message. Our Apostle Paul, is opening up this mystery. He says that it is important that we are aware of it. The Church has quite obviously entered into the Eternal Covenants of Israel. (Eph.2:12-13) The Church is hidden in covenant with the Messiah of Israel. As a hidden part of Israel then we can see that the Church is just as much in partial blindness, (of her identity in Israel), as the nation of Israel is in partial blindness of the Messiah of Israel. BOTH are partially blind!
Our Apostle Paul tells us that this partial blindness will continue until the end of the age when the church has finished her job in the harvest fields and the “fullness of the Gentiles” has come in.
25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant
of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion,
blindness in part has happened to Israel
until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.
26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:
“The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;
27 For this is My covenant with them,
When I take away their sins.” Rom.11:25-27 NKJV
At this late time in history, the scales will come off the eyes of Israel, in both houses. Judah, and lost Israel, will finally “see” and recognize their Messiah, Jesus/Yeshua. They will repent and be reconciled to Him. And the Church will “see” and finally recognize their true national identity in the Commonwealth and citizenship of Israel. (See this very important and yet hidden passage of Scripture, Ephesians 2:12-13) The mystery as to what has happened to the lost 10 tribes of Israel, (who were taken into captivity by the Assyrians in 722 B.C.), will finally be revealed at that time.
