A PEOPLE AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK
Apostle Jacquelyn Fedor
ENTERING THE AGE OF IMMORTALITY
1 Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God,
2 of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. (Leave all this! Do not forget it. Go on to the next phase).
3 And this we will do if God permits.
2 Cor. 5:4
4 For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life.
1 Cor. 15:51-54
51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed--
52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: " Death is swallowed up in victory
It is very sad to say, but the people that dare to believe these scriptures, and expect to see the promises they make fulfilled, are called cultish, or at the very least, foolish, by the majority of the church.
There is always a remnant however ready to follow God. The remnant that boldly walked from Judaism into Christianity, with its totally different direction and message, is followed now by a remnant that walks from Christianity into the new day, unafraid to make the changes demanded for this age.
18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.
20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; (that we would feel sorry enough for dying creation to be willing to change)
21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
These children of God are a remnant out of the remnant so to speak.
They too must die, but not a physical death. They must die in the Lord to the Adamic race at baptism. They resurrect through Him as a new creature, free of all curses, a new kind of humanity, ready to be prepared (shaped and molded) into His image.
13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, "Write: 'Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.'" "Yes," says the Spirit, "that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them." (These experience the feast of Sabbath. They enter God's rest.)
These must really die to their old self (that was in the image of Adam), and allow a different personality to emerge that is in the image of Christ.
3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?
4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection,
1 Cor. 15:22-23
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.
23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits (Christianity), afterward those who are Christ's at His coming. (Those that are here as the full stature of Christ emerges).
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;
Looking closely at this scripture, we see God's people must unite in faith, learn the truth concerning Jesus, and as His body or that Perfect Man, become the full stature of Christ.
These must be careful to stay separate in their hearts and minds from the world and its ways however, otherwise they will fall away like the remnant before them. They realize they must become the law over sin and experience each of the feasts in their lives as many times as it takes to perfect them. Above all, they do not want to abuse the work of the cross, nor do they want to avoid the fire that purges and perfects them. These want to be prepared for the next phase in God's plan for immortality.
ENTERING THE REST OF GOD
FEAST OF SABBATH
Much as a worm cannot become a butterfly without spending time in a dormant condition in a cocoon, we too cannot be a part of the end of the age people without resting, as in a cocoon, in God. We rest from our own agendas and desires in life, while we quietly wait on God for our change.
9 There remainstherefore a rest for the people of God.
10 For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.
We will awaken to a new condition one day, even as does the butterfly, but it will be in the timing of God and after our preparation.
23 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.
It is a for sure thing however, that this will not happen if we are ones who cannot, or will not, make the necessary changes as He feeds us new truth. You see, in this place of rest, revelation is being released for us to feed and grow upon. As the old ways of a worm are not for the butterfly, so the ways of Adam are not for the child of the new day! We must become like Jesus: our flesh must be like His. No longer the flesh and blood of Adam, but flesh of His (Jesus) flesh, bone of His bone, and kindred blood.

AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK
A people shaped to His image, with no beginning and no end is emerging. Chosen before the foundation of the earth for this time, they have no beginning, for they are born through God; and no end, for by His grace they shall live forever. Like their high priest and king, Jesus, they are after the order of Melchizedek.
9 And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him,
10 called by God as High Priest "according to the order of Melchizedek,"
1 For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him,
2 to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being translated "king of righteousness," and then also king of Salem, meaning "king of peace,"
3 without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually.
1 Cor. 15:49
49 And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.
29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. (or made after the order of Melchizedek.)
1 Cor. 15:55
55 "O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?"
This last scripture found in 1 Corinthians 15: 55 will never be fulfilled by an old wineskin that refuses to move on with God. The above scripture will see its fulfillment, however, in those wearing the proper garment, their white robe of holiness, humility and separation, that will follow the Lamb wherever He goes. They are a people that have experienced the new day, the 8th day (Shimini Atzeret), or the day after the feast of Tabernacles. These are a new and different kind, the sacred seed of God after the order of Melchizedek. A people that are prepared to celebrate Simchat Torah, rejoicing in the Torah, or rejoicing in Jesus, as He is the Word, the law, the Torah, as are those in His image.
Simchat Torah is experienced on the ninth day after the Feast of Tabernacles. It is celebrated also as the end of one earth cycle, and the beginning of another. This glorious day will only be experienced by the prepared ones, vessels willing sacrifice this world and walk the King's highway from Christianity to immortality, shining the light of the menorah for others to follow! Will you be there? Will you be a part of the body of Christ as He steps out of time into eternity, after the order of Melchizedek?
