The fourth letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet is dalet, which has a numerical value of 4 and a pictograph that looks like a door. It represents a door, a path, a way of life, or movement (especially into or out of). Therefore, as the fourth day of Hanukkah opens let’s explore the eighth as well as the ninth Hanukkah “I AM” statements of Yeshua – “I am the door.”
Remember, John 8:12-John 10:42 portrays Yeshua (Jesus) during the Feast of Dedication. It’s very significant that Yeshua declares twice “I am the door” in the midst of God’s Winter One-Dear-Land: “‘Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the DOOR into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the DOOR is a shepherd of the sheep. To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.’ This figure of speech Jesus spoke to them, but they did not understand what those things were which He had been saying to them. So Jesus said to them again, ‘Truly, Truly, I say to you, I AM THE DOOR OF THE SHEEP. All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I AM THE DOOR; IF ANYONE ENTERS THROUGH ME, HE WILL BE SAVED, AND WILL GO IN AND OUT AND FIND PASTURE” (John 10:1-9 NASB).
We previously explored why God chose shepherds to be His witness that the Messiah was born. When I sought the Lord, I heard that the shepherds watching their flocks at night, the Good Shepherd Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ), and the time of year that Yeshua declared himself to be the Good Shepherd – Hanukkah – are all connected. Please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/12/03/why-shepherds/. God chose shepherds to witness the birth of Jesus, because He wanted to illustrate that Hanukkah is connected to Jesus’ birth, not Christmas. Many people believe that Jesus was conceived during the Feast of Dedication. Perhaps. It’s a good educated guess, but we need to note that God chose to hide the fact of when Jesus was born. All we truly know is that it was not winter due to these shepherds watching their flocks by night in the fields. Seehttp://wp.me/p158HG-nY.
At the Gateway of Awe in God’s Winter One-Dear-Land, it is the Light of the World illuminating the Door of the Good Shepherd – the Feast of Dedication.
I teach extensively about how the Cherubim in scripture are a picture of the New Living Creature made after the Order of Melchizedek. “This is the Living Creature I saw under the God of Israel by the river Chebar; and I knew that they were the cherubim” (Ezekiel 10:20 KJV). Refer tohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BElDZaaFqo. When a wing of God’s Melchizedek Army (four or more believers who have entered the Kingdom of God) fly by the Spirit with one another, they rise through the Revelation 4:1 DOOR – Yeshua – and they stand at the DOOR of the East Gate where Jesus returns to earth:
• “For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be” (Matthew 24:27 NASB).
• “And the Cherubim lifted up their wings, and mounted up from the earth in my sight: when they went out, the wheels also were beside them, and EVERY ONE STOOD AT THE DOOR OF THE EAST GATE OF THE LORD’S HOUSE; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above” (Ezekiel 10:19 KJV).
• “After these things I looked and behold, A DOOR STANDING OPEN IN HEAVEN, and the first voice which I had heard. Like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things. And immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne was standing in heaven, and One sitting on the throne” (Revelation 4:1-2 NASB).
Remember, we are supposed to walk like Jesus, talk like Jesus and be exactly like Jesus. Also remember, Jesus declaration “I am from above.” Refer to https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2017/12/14/doing-what-jesus-did-i-am-from-above-hanukkah-night-2/. The ultimate purpose of the Cherubim Classification of the Order of Melchizedek is to become the fully mature Body of the Messiah that holds fast to the Head – Messiah Yeshua. This is accomplished by the kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek leading their own inner fire bride forth. Once we are manifestly wedded as the Bride of the Messiah, we then become incorporated into His Oneness Metatron Matrix (i.e., become one with the Messiah Yeshua). Please refer to ONENESS METATRON MATRIX – FULLY MATURE SONS => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/11/30/oneness-metatron-matrix-fully-mature-sons/ and FULL GOVERNMENT OF GOD PRIZE – IMMORTALITY => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/12/02/full-government-of-god-prize-immortality/.
Esther 6:2 reveals that the king’s chamberlains are the keepers of the DOOR. The king’s chamberlains are the kings and priests of the Eternal Order of Melchizedek who are treasurers of the most intimate. YHVH’s Melchizedek Company is the predecessor for the unparalleled beauty of His Pure and Spotless Bridal Company. They both have pure hearts surrounded by Yeshua’s Blood, which passes through the righteous judgments that emanate from His Sapphire Throne. Behold, the Judge stands at the DOOR (James 5:9).
One of the bridal preparation functions that the Order of Melchizedek operates in is the role of the king’s chamberlain. A chamberlain is an attendant on a sovereign in his bedchamber. He is the chief officer in the household of a king who is the treasurer of his most intimate possessions. Behold, “my beloved put in his hand by the hole OF THE DOOR, and my bowels were moved for him” (Song of Songs 5:4 KJV). As guardians of the king’s most cherished treasures – our very selves and everyone made in His image – the royal priests of Melchizedek are in-charge of receiving, keeping and disbursing the king’s resources according to His heart.
One of the primary doors that we are guardians of is the door of our own heart. This is the primary focus for Hanukkah. The Messiah’s Feast of Dedication is the dedication of one’s own heart.
It’s major deal that a DOOR/GATE is mentioned for each one of the four abominations listed in Ezekiel chapter 8 that drives God’s Dwelling Presence far from His sanctuary (Ezekiel 8:5,7,8,14,16). These four abominations map to the four face of God (Melchizedek), and these four defile one’s heart. To the degree that we compromise with the four abominations is the degree that we don’t operate in the fullness of the Cherubim Classification of the Order of Melchizedek. This means that we will not be completely ruling and reigning in those compromised areas. The worship of Mithra (i.e. celebration of Christmas) compromises the face of the ox – the Father – which the Cherubim (who form the corporate Order of Melchizedek) is supposed to operate in.

Behold, Yeshua who declares “I AM THE DOOR” during Hanukkah is knocking on the door of your heart. He wants you to open up to all of Him, including the feasts in God’s Word that the Messiah celebrated. When Yeshua says, “BEHOLD, I STAND AT THE DOOR, AND KNOCK: IF ANY MAN HEAR MY VOICE, AND OPEN THE DOOR, I WILL COME IN TO HIM, AND WILL SUP WITH HIM, AND HE WITH ME” (Revelation 3:20 KJV), He is speaking as the GREAT I AM:
• “I AM the Door of the sheep” (John 10:7).
• “I AM the DOOR: by Me if any one enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture” (John 10:9).
• “I AM the Alpha (Alef) and the Omega (Tav)” (Revelation 1:11).
• “I AM He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I AM alive forevermore” (Revelation 1:18).
