SONGS OF ASCENT (Remix) - Part 1
OCTOBER 3, 2012
The Book of Psalms is one of the most favorite books in the Bible for Believers and non-believers. This was the hymnal for the Old Testament Church as well as the New. This book was actually divided into 5 books, or sections, divinely inspired and put together. The first 5 books (Torah) of the Bible are called the Pentateuch, which are parallel to the 5 divisions of the Book of Psalms.
This book teaches us Worship, Wisdom, and Warfare. It exalts the Creator and declares that all creation, even nature must praise Him. It also speaks about sin, evil, justice and judgment, and of course, the coming Messiah. The Book of Psalms was written by several prophetic psalmist over a span of 1000 years, 73 of the psalms are attributed to David; the beloved psalmist of Israel. This Prayer Book opens with a benediction, “Blessed is the man,” and ends with Praises and Glory to God.
SONGS OF ASCENT
Toward the end of this great book are 15 Psalms (Songs that were sang with musical instruments), Psalms numbers 120-134. These were called Songs of Degrees or Ascent. They are short, but carry very powerful mystical messages for those who have an ear to hear. While we wont have the time to deal with these psalms individually in this writing, I would like to share some information and revelation about why they were named such.
We will be looking at the principle of Ascending. As stated earlier, the Book of Psalms has 5 sections. The Songs of Ascent are in the 5th section, which corresponds with the Book of Deuteronomy; which means, Words, or repeated Words.
We know that Jesus the Christ came as the Word 2000 years ago, but we are expecting and experiencing a Repeat, Second Coming of the Word materialized in our flesh, (Words). With the full revelation of the Christ in us, we will be able to move on out of this wilderness into Fullness.
Why were they called Songs of Ascent?
(1) This was prophetically written for pilgrims, a people that were not satisfied with their current state of being or expressing a limited measure of God. The songs were not for a people that would make a religion or denomination out of their experience. They were written for those who are moving from glory to glory; ever ascending to higher heights and dimensions of Spirit.
In Deuteronomy 16:16 God commanded the "called out ones" to appear before Him 3 times a year. The Feast of Passover, Feast of Pentecost and the Feast of Tabernacles (In-gathering). As most of you know, that represents our 3 major experiences with and in God. Most of the Believers today only know about 2 experiences, (Passover=Salvation and Pentecost=Baptism of the Holy Ghost). Thank God that there are some of us which are beginning to understand and experience Tabernacles=Fullness.
As Israel “went up” to Jerusalem to observe the Feasts, they sang these 15 songs on the way. Each song represents a higher dimension in God. The New Testament tells us that we are being Changed from one degree of Glory to another. As we come together during the feasts of the Lord, there is an Acceleration and a Release of Christ within us, the hope of Glory.
(2) The Book of Ezra deals with the return of the captives (called out ones), after being exiled in Babylon for 70 years. Ezra 7. According to Ezra 2, there were 42,360 of the captives returned to Jerusalem. History says that the captives sang the 15 Songs of Ascent as they journeyed back to Jerusalem. I can imagine they must have sang each of them (Psalms 120-134) 100 times as they came weeping and rejoicing to their homeland.
The Babylon (confusion) of Religion, Economics and Politics are Fallen. The cry is being made, “Come out of her my people.” There is an exodus taking place, the Church has been held captive long enough. This is the Jubilee, year of Release. Eye can hear the Spirit crying out, “LET MY PEOPLE GO!" Religion as you see it today is rapidly coming to an End.
The trumpet has sounded, the alarm is heard throughout the land, it’s been decreed in the heavens by the Watchers and soon you will see a manifestation in the Earth. Just as the Berlin Wall fell seemingly overnight, so shall it be with Babylon in one day, she shall be dealt with.
"It’s already done, says the Lord. The ax is laid to the root, it’s already dried up. The roots have been destroyed, the trunk and branches shall wither away. Now behold the plantings of the Lord which shall not be moved, they are planted by the rivers of My Spirit. The redeem of the Lord are returning, they are coming singing songs birthed by my Spirit which causes them to ascend in Me. Return unto Zion, with everlasting joy and gladness, for this is a day of joy, not sadness. Rejoice at the fall of Babylon. Rejoice as you ascend up to Zion, says the Lord!!" Hal--le-lu- Yah!!
Could the Creator be giving us a sign in the heavens that will manifest around Feast of Tabernacles 2013? Will the manifested Sons of God be shinning forth with His bright glory in Zion? There's a Comet just discovered a few days ago. Several Watchers have sent me this info. It is called Comet ISON. Could this be a prophetic clue for Sion=Zion or I Son? This Comet is expected to be the brightest Comet ever- it could become as bright as the full Moon. It is expected to appear around or just after Feast of Tabernacles 2013 - We will be watching, COMET ISON - 0CTOBER 1
MYSTERIOUS SECRETS OF THE STAIRS
(3) In the Court area of Solomon’s Temple there was a stairway that had 15 Steps, parallel to the 15 Songs of Ascent. The 15 Steps led upward, from the Court of Men to the Court of Women. Wisdom, she cries out from the high places. This is the ascent of all creation, the court of women (female) represents, returning to the origins of creation and the return of expressing our full creative abilities.
"O my dove, that are in the clefts of the rock, in the Secret Places of the Stairs, let me see your countenance, let me hear your voice; for sweet is your voice, and your countenance is comely." Son of Solomon 2:14
The "Secret of Solomon's Winding Staircase" is the connection of the divine masculine to the divine feminine within. An aerial view of Solomon's Temple would have revealed the imagine of a man sitting, the dome being the head. The secret places of the winding stairs represented the Double Helix DNA strand and all the secrets it hold. The stairways consisted of 15 steps, we will deal with that more in depth in another writing.
In the mysterious verse above, the Bride shares what the Bridegroom said to her. He lets her know that her true identity is concealed in the "secret place of the stairs." This is a 15 step program/experience which was revealed only during the Feast of Tabernacles. ARE YOU AWAKE YET??!!
The release of the fullness of the Holy Spirit (dove), is the activation of your dormant DNA - that unknown 97% of you that scientist call, "junk or junk DNA."
The Levites stood on the steps starting the 1st day of Tabernacles, till the end of that Great Feast. They sang and played instruments, as other men danced below before the women for 8 days.
It is said, "“He who has not seen the rejoicing at the place of the water-drawing ceremony, has never seen rejoicing in his life! The all-night dancing and rejoicing took place in the large women’s courtyard of the Temple (the men in the courtyard below, the women on an elaborate balcony that was especially erected for the ceremony), while upon the broad circular stairs that led up to the men’s courtyard, the Levites stood with “harps, lyres, cymbals, trumpets” and many other musical instruments. The Levites provided the musical fanfare and spiritual songs that kept Jerusalem wide-eyed till dawn, as they stood upon those “fifteen steps that led down from the courtyard to the women’s, that correspond to the fifteen steps."
I remember hearing a modern gospel song that says, "When I think of His goodness and all He has done for me, I can dance, dance, dance - all night."
The codons (chemical messengers) move up and down the DNA ladder, showing us the way of descending and ascending. This is the path that the Levites and priest took during Tabernacles. These are also the angels on Jacob's DNA Ladder (winding staircase). Genesis 28 Again, we see this mystery of ascending and descending demonstrated during the Feast of Tabernacles in Solomon's secrets of the stairs. Jesus, Himself declared that He was Jacob's Ladder, the Original DNA Template strand that allows Him to multiply or replicate Himself infinitely. John 1:51
2 WINDING STAIRCASES IN SOLOMON'S TEMPLE
The RNA is a single helix, but the DNA is the Double Helix Strand. The secrets of wisdom are double to what is. There were actually (2) winding staircases in Solomon's Temple. It was a replica of the human anatomy, the human DNA and the phantom DNA that exist on a higher frequency and barely seen under microscope. "Don't you know that you are the temple of the Holy Ghost?"
The technology that went into this Temple far exceeded the technology of pagan temples. According to most research, it not only had 3 main compartments (Court, Holy Place, Holy of Holies) but it was also 3 stories-compartments. It had huge arches and an elaborate balcony. This is why there were (2) winding staircases - double helix DNA, that held the secrets of body, soul and spirit being completely restored to express the ultimate Temple worship and BEing. (15x2=30, Initiation, Maturity. In this are the double secrets or two-sided meanings of the 15 steps)
"The door for the middle chamber was in the right side of the house: and they went up with winding stairs into the middle chamber, and out of the middle into the third." 1 KINGS 6:8
EACH STEP HAS A SPECIFIC FREQUENCY
Each step was assigned a song from Psalms 120-134, 15 songs and 15 steps for 8 days. (15 x 8=120, we’ll get to that later) The Psalms or Songs represents a specific sound or frequency that each secret step emits in this Tabernacle experience. The sound is unique to the experience of your ascension as you vibrate with a joyous attitude. Each "base" or step of the DNA strand has a specific frequency, when combined with others bases, there are unlimited possibilities of frequencies or songs the body human sings. These are the songs of your genetic ascent.
During the procession in Solomon's Temple, at step number 10, the ancient priest would stop before finishing the next 5 steps. There are many mysterious of why, we will only glaze over one. The secret steps are also parallel to the mystical Hebrew alphabets, gematria, astrology and the energetic or etheric body.
The 10th step represents the 10 letter of the Hebrew alphabet, YUD or Yod. This letter holds the sacred keys to the names of God summed up in YaH-WeH. The 5th step after the 10 holds the mystery of the 5th letter of the Hebrew alphabet, HEY. Together we have the masculine and feminine God Goddess concept merged together in ONE. Yah = Masculine, WeH = Feminine.
During the Feast of Tabernacles there was a procession, an honoring and acknowledgment of the female by the Levites, only in this feast was this done. Why?? This speaks of the mystical union of male and female, Christ and his Bride, the two becoming one. This speaks of the spirit and soul operating on the same level, not one above another. John in the Book of Revelation called this experience the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Revelation 19
Another way of seeing this is, as Adam and Eve before the transgression and deception. The word Levites comes from the name Levi, the ministerial tribe to Israel; which means to join, make one. For over 6000 years soul has been lowered beneath spirit, Eve has been beneath Adam, female has been subordinate to male, (especially in eastern concept). However, it’s time for oneness, this can only happen, as we acknowledge and honor Eve (Divine Feminine). This must be realized in us first. There is a fine line between subordination and submission. The Bride can only become ONE with the Bridegroom when she submits and allows Him in. The power of Submission is where the Power lies.
"O my dove, that are in the clefts of the rock, in the Secret Places of the Stairs, let me see your countenance, let me hear your voice; for sweet is your voice, and your countenance is comely." Song of Solomon 2:14
