Movement from Form to Formlessness ’God’s Quest for Edenized Earth’
It is wrong in any guise to present Christ in any garb or emblem of Levitical or Aaronic priesthood which Jesus Himself is not qualify to stand in, He was from the Tribe of Judah. The Levitical order was a group of priests who served in the temple under the terms of the Old Covenant, membership is genetic. You have to descend from Levi, Aaron was the first in that order. The New Testament Christianity and the Kingdom of God has been established beyond the Nation of Israel, but while Jerusalem remains the birthing place of the divine epiphany, the New Jerusalem coming down from heaven is its final resting place. So any allusions to images, symbols and the idealism of things imbued with traditions and the culture of the Nation of Israel as the basis of “strengthening” the faith of New Testament creatures is pure idolatry. The return of the Menorah, Shofar and Jewish Prayer Shawl whether the American or the Chinese version of it to the New Testament Church is a backward movement, except for exegesis, symbolism and illustrations about Israel’s rich heritage and culture, these attachment to shadows and forms has no spiritual significance in the Ecclesia.
The two mystical orders in the Bible are the Levitical or Aaronic and the Melchizedek. Melchizedek has been trending lately basically because of the issues surrounding tithe. The priests under the Levitical order could not function in any other capacity but as priests. They couldn’t work in the secular field, wouldn’t be able to work in the corporate world for example. Priests of the Levitical order operated an economy based on a contributory scheme from other tribes of Israel hence the need for tithe.
Jesus belongs to the order of Melchizedek. (Hebrews 7:13-17) By that very fact, all Christians belong to that order. That’s because we have no identity outside of Jesus. (Colossians 2:10, Ephesians 1:11) In other words, God’s idea of our priesthood is not a strict religious priesthood like that of Aaron, but a kingdom of priests. Rev 5:9-10 And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.”
The Priests in the Order of Melchizedek are internally dressed and do not have titular appellations, for them the tents tabernacle and temple has been humanized. They are ministers of the sanctuary not made with human hands, but how and what do they minister? They Minister their BEING causing the collapse of the realms of spiritual and circular. Their religious heavens has been made New so they can stand as priests between Heaven and the Earth. They do not minister in church services dressed up in certain way but they minister to all of God’s creation.Anytime you see New Testament Church leaders dressed in ecclesial robes of any kind , and attaching it to a position of authority, you can only remember that Daniel (12:11) and Jesus (Mk,13;14) warned us about the desecration of the holy things of God in the last days.
In conclusion we must understand that the holonic purpose of Moses is to teach humanity about the nature of form and the purpose of Jesus is to teach humanity about detaching from forms. For forms to exist there has to be boundaries and laws (Garden and thou shall not, the temple and the laws of Moses) Denominations, Church Rules and Regulation. The Tabernacle of David is formless in comparison to that of Moses and it is the prophetic architecture for true spirituality. In Unchurching Christianity this is where God is going in this final move of God and the closing of the Church age.
