THE FIVEFOLD MINISTRY - The Hand of God
According to scripture, Mt. Zion is the mountain of God, or God's home. It is a mountain made of living stones, God's people that He governs through.
1 Peter 2:5
5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 3:16
16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
In the Lord's Day Zion is to be raised above all other mountains and hills. While God dwells and rules from this mountain, we must understand that there is also a counterfeit mountain that Satan lives in and give direction from, it's called Mt. Seir or the black mountain. The word promises total defeat to this evil mountain at the end of this age. We have a prophecy concerning this in Ezekiel 35:2-4.
2 "Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir and prophesy against it
3 "and say to it, Thus says the Lord GOD:" Behold, O Mount Seir, I am against you; I will stretch out My hand against you, And make you most desolate
4 I shall lay your cities waste, And you shall be desolate. Then you shall know that I am the LORD.
Now let us look further on down to verses twelve through fifteen.
12 "Then you shall know that I am the LORD. I have heard all your blasphemies which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, They are desolate they are given to us to consume.
13 "Thus with your mouth you have boasted against Me and multiplied your words against Me; I have heard them."
14 Thus says the Lord GOD: "The whole earth will rejoice when I make you desolate.
15 "As you rejoiced because the inheritance of the house of Israel was desolate, so I will do to you; you shall be desolate, O Mount Seir, as well as all of Edom-all of it! Then they shall know that I am the LORD."
This can only be accomplished however as God's mountain or government is raised up, or is seen and recognized, from top to bottom.
2 Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it.
3 Many people shall come and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob he will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Here we read of black mountain.
7 Who are you, O great mountain? (the black mountain) Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of "Grace, grace to it!"
What is this capstone or headstone found in Zechariah? Her number is found in Strongs Concordance as 7222 in the Hebrew. I say "she" because she is the feminine of 7218. 7218 is the head, the beginning (of a new time), chief, principal ruler, top, etc. So she is the feminine head, the mother of new beginnings, the female principal ruler.
Remembering that this is a spiritual mountain made of living stones, the capstone is wisdom, released through revealers, that guides the Bride of Christ or the last Eve. This is wisdom from the Word, Jesus, the Tree of Life.
LIKE EVE THE CHURCH WAS BIRTHED
The church was released from the side of Christ on the cross as the soldier pierced him with the spear. Now we know the spirit of the resurrected Christ dwells in us as we ask Him into our hearts at our salvation and we become one with Him through baptism and the new covenant. We are flesh of His flesh, bone of His bone. This is how we are the body His Spirit lives through, and therefore the body of Christ, yet at the same time we are His Bride. We are one flesh. The last Adam (Jesus) stands complete and in full stature once again as all body parts come together, the Bride and Groom are in one body.
1 Corinthians 15:45
45 And so it is written, "The first man Adam became a living being." The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
It will be the Bride the world will see, but Jesus will be functioning through her to take dominion over the planet and make the kingdoms of this world the kingdom of our God. All this is in fulfillment of the prophecy found in Isaiah 4:1-2.
1 And in that day seven women (7 is the number of God, so the perfected woman, the Bride) shall take hold of one man, (Jesus) saying, "We will eat our own food (God gave them truth) and wear our own apparel (white robes of separation); only let us be called by your name (Jesus), to take away our reproach (which He did as the Passover Lamb)."
2 In that day the Branch of the LORD (the government of God) shall be beautiful and glorious and the fruit of the earth (the fruit of the Spirit) shall be excellent and appealing for those of Israel (the born again seed of Abraham) who have escaped (come out of the religious systems of man, shunned intellect and chose wisdom).
So again, the government of God forms the head of the perfect Bride as well as the head of the Groom and are the living stones that form the top of God's Mountain. Seven is the sacred number of perfection.
THE BRIDE HAS MANY NAMES
The capstone is the wisdom that guides the head of the Warrior Queen (the Bride at war), symbolized by Esther so long ago. The Bride is also the Shulamite in the Song of Solomon (God's beloved), sealed up and not understood until now.
Song of Solomon 4:12
12 A garden enclosed is my sister, my spouse, a spring shut up, a fountain sealed.
Now, with all this in mind we can see from Zechariah 4:7 that the black mountain is removed or made a plain as the top or pinnacle of God's mountain (wisdom, the headstone or capstone) is brought forth or put in place by Zerubbabel. Who is this Zerubbabel? The name stands for a type of people. It means the descendents of Babylon, or the children of the old Adamic church that have responded to Revelation 18:4.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, My people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.
When these separated ones see, understand and choose wisdom from the Tree of Life or the capstone and can shout grace, grace to it, victory will be in store for God's people. The word "grace" when looked up in the Strongs is number 2580 meaning, favored, precious, kindness towards.
Since we will not see victory until this mountain comes together, it becomes very important to see the people that make up the mountain and their function.
In my last five lectures, I discussed the fivefold ministry offices. We see that with the restoration of each office, Christ is being restored to the planet as the Head of His Body. Christ through the office of Teacher walks as Rabboni once again. Through the office of Pastor, He can shepherd His people, first calling them into His flock through the office of Evangelist. He tells each sheep what He expects them to do, whether they are a part of the body members, or office holders as He lives through the office of Prophet. He gallantly leads His armies and rises up on behalf of His people as the office of Apostle.
MUST REACH FULL STATURE FOR VICTORY
On the other hand, in scripture, we saw Him also walking as a body member as the carpenter, setting the example of how He will walk through His body today. He will reach out to humanity in every avenue of existence through people from all walks of life. Everyone must be given a chance to enter the Kingdom. All the world must be reached.
Colossians 1:27 tells us,
"it's Christ in us, the hope of glory". So if it is Christ in us that is the hope, then we sure need to see all of Him restored to His full stature. We can't have a head without a body, nor a body without the head.
13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
The full measure of His anointing will be released as His offices come together with his body to break the yoke of all that is harmful to God's people, including death itself. You see, we have the hope and opportunity of being the 1 Corinthians 15:51 people that don't sleep, but are changed from mortality to immortality. But, for this to become a reality, there is still one part of His Head, or one part of the governing mountain, we must better understand. We will find this part of Jesus at Hebrews 3:1.
1 Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest (prophet) of our confession, Christ Jesus,
As we read on we will see that a good example of this part of Jesus can be found in the study of the life and ministry of Moses.
THE DUAL ANOINTED MOSES
We are talking of two anointings and two offices in one vessel as was seen in Moses. We must do a little study here to understand.
In Numbers 27:18-20, Moses is told to divide his offices between Joshua and Eleazar. Some of his authority was to be given to Joshua to lead the people, but then Eleazar was given the rest of the authority to prophesy to Joshua concerning the will and wisdom of God so he could do things God's way. Moses could do both. Joshua now had the authority and ministry of the military commander or apostle, but Eleazar had the wisdom and anointing of God that is shared through the prophetic office of Prophet. So the anointing that was on Moses was a dual anointing of Apostle Prophet.
Numbers 27:18-20 proves this point.
18 And the LORD said to Moses: "Take Joshua the son of Nun with you, a man in whom is the Spirit, and lay your hand on him
19 "set him before Eleazar the priest and before all the congregation, and inaugurate him in their sight.
20 "And you shall give some of your authority to him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient.
21 "He shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall inquire before the LORD for him by the judgment of the Urim at his word they shall go out, and at his word they shall come in, he and all the children of Israel with him-- all the congregation."
Again, Moses was anointed to perform in both Joshua and Eleazar's offices. Now let me share something else with you that will aid your understanding. The word foot in the Strongs concordance in the Hebrew is 3653. It goes to 3651 and on to 3559. The bottom line is, it means office or well (an office is like a well where information comes from). So a foot is symbolic of an office, and vice versa, an office is symbolic of a foot. With that in mind, let's read Exodus 3:5.
5 Then He said, "Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground."
Notice "take your sandals off your feet". Both sandals and feet are plural. Now turn to Joshua 5:15.
15 Then the Commander of the LORD'S army said to Joshua, "Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is holy." And Joshua did so.
Here he tells Joshua, who holds one office, "take your sandal off your foot", both singular. These were symbolic gestures to help us see this truth today.
SIDE NOTE of interest: The word Sandal means to occupy or occupancy. So when the sandals were removed, the men were temporarily to step out of their office, or lay their life down to enter into God's presence. This was symbolic of the future New Testament age when men would lay down their offices and self importance to allow Christ to return through them. This was symbolized by the washing of their feet or offices before Jesus was sacrificed. Man would no longer fill the office, it would be Christ Himself through them. The offices were washed clean of man's intellect. As stated before: It's Christ in us the hope of glory.
27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
THE DUAL ANOINTED
Now, back to the dual anointed. As I brought out in Hebrews 3:1, Jesus walked in this dual gifting while here. Since He has been restored back to earth through the fivefold offices, we can perhaps understand, for Him to be totally complete, the dual gifting must be restored as well. How will we know these ones that He chooses to walk through as a dual anointed? They are His revealers. They have no particular office, just as His prayer intercessors have no recognized office. Why? Because He still occupies these offices as our King and High Priest at the right hand of God. Remember, Christ in us, the hope of glory. Intercessors co-labor with Him. Revealers are ones wisdom from the Tree of Life manifests through. He is the Word, the Truth, the Tree of Life and Wisdom is the fruit from this tree. What do revealers do? How can we recognize them? We must seek the answers to these questions if Christ is to be a complete body and come to full stature as discussed in Ephesians.
SONG OF THE DUAL ANOINTED JESUS
God sings through the revealers in prophecy in a different authority and anointing than the other fivefold offices or a body member. When it's God singing through a revealer from His dual office, the contents of the song is to be considered a spiritual law as it is God's wisdom through the vessel. Again we can see an example as we study previous dual giftings. Let us again look at Moses.
19 "Now therefore, write down this song for yourselves, and teach it to the children of Israel put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for Me against the children of Israel.
20 "When I have brought them to the land flowing with milk and honey, of which I swore to their fathers, and they have eaten and filled themselves and grown fat, then they will turn to other gods and serve them; and they will provoke Me and break My covenant.
21 "Then it shall be, when many evils and troubles have come upon them, that this song will testify against them as a witness for it will not be forgotten in the mouths of their descendants, for I know the inclination of their behavior today, even before I have brought them to the land of which I swore to give them."
22 Therefore Moses wrote this song the same day, and taught it to the children of Israel.
44 So Moses came with Joshua the son of Nun and spoke all the words of this song in the hearing of the people.
45 Moses finished speaking all these words to all Israel,
46 and He said to them: "Set your hearts on all the words which I testify among you today, which you shall command your children to be careful to observe -- all the words of this law.
47 "For it is not a futile thing for you, because it is your life, and by this word you shall prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to possess."
2 And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.
3 They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb (or the song of the greater Moses, the Lord), saying: "Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints!
The song of the Lord is sung through a vessel.
FOLLOWING THE LAMB THROUGH SONG
In these last days, 144,000 (a whole or complete number of remnant, not a literal figure, but symbolic) will follow the Lamb through the song of God as He sings through His revealers. Not all will understand the song however! Not all will see the dual gifting operating either or hear the song that comes forth from it. God said so.
1 Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father's name written on their foreheads (priests of the Lord).
2 And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder (God). And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps.
3 They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth (victorious through the cross).
4 These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.
The fivefold ministers are symbolized also by the five virgins that allowed themselves to be prepared with the oil or anointing that is on wisdom or revelation knowledge. They will not only hear the song of the greater Moses (Jesus), but they will follow the Lamb through the song, for they know the song is a spiritual law. To try to explain it better, let me say it this way: according to John 1:1, Jesus is the word; the word is prophecy. Jesus is the Lamb, He is also referred to as the spirit of prophecy so, as prophecy or the word that encompasses God's wisdom is sung into the hearts of people, the Lamb is being placed there. As we take direction from this prophecy through the song of the revealers, it will come true, as it is law. In this way they follow the Lamb.
WAS MOSES THE ONLY DUAL ANOINTED
You may ask: Were there other dual anointed people besides Moses? Yes. Every time the people of God go through a major change in history, and God is the one behind that change, He raises up a dual anointed to direct His people and express Himself through. At Judges 4:4 we see Deborah, who was a prophetess that judged all Israel.
4 Now Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, was judging Israel at that time.
In verses 8 and 9, although a prophetess (remember Eleazar, the high priest of Moses' day?), we see her leading the armies to war as a trusted military commander (as was Joshua).
8 And Barak (commander of the army of Israel) said to her, "If you will go with me, then I will go; but if you will not go with me, I will not go!"
9 So she said, "I will surely go with you nevertheless there will be no glory for you in the journey you are taking, for the LORD will sell Sisera into the hand of a woman." Then Deborah arose and went with Barak to Kedesh.
In chapter five, verses twelve and thirteen, we see her singing, and God comes down to aid her and destroys the enemy.
12 "Awake, awake, Deborah! Awake, awake, sing a song! Arise, Barak, and lead your captives away, O son of Abinoam!
13 "Then the survivors came down, the people against the nobles; the LORD came down for me against the mighty.
She judged Israel for 40 years of peace. David was also a King, Priest, Prophet. He was the warrior King of Israel, or had the apostolic anointing, but at the same time he also prophesied through songs we are still singing and reading today. They are known as the Psalms. Deborah's song is also a part of scripture, and the song of Moses is a part of the Torah (which the word Torah in Hebrew means law).
REVELATION FLOWS FROM THE TOP
There have been many duals all through the ages. Today, wisdom from the King and High Priest Jesus, through His revealers is placed at the very top of God's spiritual mountain: the peak, the pinnacle or the point of the capstone to guide and enlighten His body, to shine God's light for the remnant. The steeple we see at the top of buildings, especially the traditional church, is their symbol or way of claiming man's intellect as fulfilling these offices.
As the seals of Revelation are opened, the truth is revealed into the minds and hearts of the fivefold ministers who in turn feed God's sheep. In other words, the fivefold ministers will lead God's people through the wisdom they receive from the revealers.
Another way of saying it is: truth containing the wisdom of God will well up or spring up from the fountain head (Christ) and spill into the fountain (the fivefold) who will in turn release it on down the mountain to the streets of New Jerusalem to give living water to the nations as they come to eat from the tree of life.
1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life (Jesus), which bore twelve fruits (12 is the number of government), each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
This fountain is a fountain of knowledge that flows from the house on the top of Mt. Zion.
18 And it will come to pass in that day that the mountains shall drip with new wine (wisdom), the hills shall flow with milk (foundation knowledge), and all the brooks of Judah shall be flooded with water (through praise); a fountain shall flow from the house of the LORD (through the revealers to the fivefold) and water the Valley of Acacias.
The valley of Shittim, or Acacias is a very dry valley, like the valley of dry bones in Ezekiel 37. The anointing on wisdom from the Tree of Life will awaken the dead church to stand to its feet as prophesied in Daniel 12 and Revelation 11:11.
As we see, God dwells in this spiritual mountain of made living stones and we are the living stones.
1 Peter 2:5 describes these stones.
5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Now let us look once again at Isaiah 2:2
2 Now it shall come to pass in the latter days That the mountain of the LORD's house Shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills And all nations shall flow to it.
The living stones that make up the peak of the capstone or headstone (or the upper room of God's house), are today's revealers.
As we discussed at the beginning of this lecture, the scriptures promise defeat to our enemies (Mt. Seir or the black mountain). Here is how it comes about.
7 'Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone (wisdom from the Tree of Life) with shouts of "Grace, grace to it!"
If we want victory over the black mountain where the Beast and Babylon have full sway, then we must shout grace, grace to the capstone. In other words, we must embrace the wisdom of God that the Lord is sharing with His church through the revealers to be overcomers and the church victorious.
The counterfeit capstone (lies, intellect of man from the Tree of Good and Evil, Satan) is found depicted on the United States dollar bill! There it represents the lie that we can be like God and dictate our own destiny through the false prophet of Revelation, who feeds black mountain's church leaders in the world's religious systems along with the governments that back it. This evil capstone's mission is to level society, bring about one world religion and be the banking system for the world, through a one world government and has the audacity to say "In God we trust". The god of this world is Satan!
So let us feast on Wisdom from the Tree of Life. Let us eat of this Tree only, obeying the voice of the Lord as spoken from the very beginning concerning the Tree of Good and Evil.
3 but of the fruit (lies) of the tree (good and evil) which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, 'You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.'"
Let us close with these scriptures.
20 Wisdom calls aloud outside; she raises her voice in the open squares. (Where the dead church lies.)
21 She cries out in the chief concourses, at the openings of the gates in the city (Babylon) she speaks her words:
22 " How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? For scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge.
23 Turn at my rebuke; surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.
24 Because I have called and you refused, I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded,
25 Because you disdained all my counsel, and would have none of my rebuke,
26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes,
27 When your terror comes like a storm, and your destruction comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.
28 "Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.
29 Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the LORD,
30 They would have none of my counsel and despised my every rebuke.
31 Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way (lies from the Tree of good and evil), and be filled to the full with their own fancies (their intellect).
32 For the turning away of the simple will slay them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them;
33 But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil."
18 She (wisdom) is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, and happy are all who retain her.
19 The LORD by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens;
2 Peter 3:13
Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
Remember the definition of the capstone in Zechariah in the Strongs Concordance is number 7222 in the Hebrew Dictionary? It is feminine of 7218 which is: head, the beginning (of a new time), principal ruler, top. As we walk in wisdom, a new culture, a new Kingdom is birthed through us and a new refurbished earth will appear. Is this not reason to shout grace, grace to the Capstone, Wisdom from the Tree of Life. In other words, we as the Bride of the Last Adam, choose the fruit from the Tree of Life, unlike Eve, who chose the fruit of the Tree of Good and Evil.
