Under Which Priesthood?

Under Which Priesthood?

1Pt 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light:

Virtually identical to

Ex 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

Ex.19:5-6 can only be speaking of one ‘priesthood'; by virtue of there not being any other at that point – the Melchizedek Priesthood. 1Pt.2:9 punctuates that point in the words ‘royal priesthood'; for the word ‘melchizedek’ is a conjunction of two Hebrew words – ‘melek’ meaning king and ‘zedek’ meaning righteous.

Ex.19:5-6 are the opening lines of the Book of the Covenant (Ex.19:5-24:8). The Israelites promised to keep and obey this covenant (Ex.19:7-8/24:7-8) – they did not (Ex.32). YHWH’s solution was to wipe all of Israel out and start over with Moses, the only one that kept the covenant and still had a Melchizedek Priesthood standing. But Moses pleaded for them; YHWH relented. But Israel would no longer be a nation ‘of’ Melchizedek Priests – now – (post covenant breach); Israel would be a nation ‘with’ priests – Levitical Priests – the Levitical Priesthood was born.

It is then consistent with the evidence that YHWH (knowing the end from the beginning) called Moses up the Mountain in good faith with the full intent of the nation of Israel keeping their promise. Israel did not. So what started out in Covenant compliance to be a national Melchizedek Priesthood intent, became a Covenant breach tribal Levitical Priesthood reality, a concession granted by a merciful YHWH in lieu of complete annihilation (Ex.32:10).

Rabbinic types will assert that Levi was given the priesthood long before the covenant at Sinai – sighting the Talmud, Mishnah, other writings and Gen.49:5. As stated; the best these Beyond Scripture / non-Torah writings can aspire to is commentary. Nothing can be above Torah – Nothing! Gen.49:5 is Torah; it reveals a curse on both Simeon and Levi for actions taken at Gen.34 involving both (only) Simeon and Levi – Now; ask yourself – Self; how can anyone split that verse (Gen.49:5) in half, wrench a priesthood (verbiage that is not there) for only Levi and cookie cut Simeon out of the picture? We would have a ‘Simeonic’ priesthood also; but most don’t ask that question – most just go along to get along.

So what we see at Ex.19:5-6 is Yahweh’s offer that if the people would keep the covenant, they would be His Kingdom of (Melchizedek) Priests. This was Plan ‘A'; that was lost with the Gold Calf incident of Ex.32 that thrust the Israelites into the Levitical Priesthood that was at best a damage control Plan ‘B’. There is a huge difference between being ‘a nation of priests’ and being ‘a nation with priests’. Most of the Hebrew Root Teachers teach the cyclical nature of Hebrew – that is; it cycles – if you want to know the future; look to the beginning. We under Yahshua revert back to the original Melchizedek Priesthood Plan ‘A’. The same offer (of Ex.19:5-6) being identified at 1Ptr.2:9.

Heb 7:11 If .. perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) …

As a New Testament – New/re-New-ed Covenant believer, have you ever considered what ‘Priesthood’ you are under? What ‘Priesthood’ you have been called into (1Pt.2:9/Rev.1:6; 5:10 – Ex.19:5-6)? Yahshua (Christ) is our High Priest (Heb.5:5; 10, 7:17) after the order of Melchizedek. Have you ever considered that the Covenant/Law teaching of both the Christian Church and the Messianic Assemblies though responding in opposition nevertheless defer to the same understanding of biblical law via the Judaism of Rabbinic Orthodoxy? That itself maintains and regularly defers to a reinforced Levitical Priesthood mindset? Saying; ‘The law cannot be divided’ – By and large; the Church and the Jews believe and act on this same tenant concerning biblical law – yet; the Jews want it all – the Church does not want it at all. Have you ever considered that Yahshua (Jesus) as are most of us, are not from the Tribe of Levi (Heb.7:13-14) and thereby not eligible to ever be a Levitical Priest (Heb.7:14)? Yet we are called to be Melchizedek Priests of the Most High through His Son – Yahshua the High Melchizedek Priest. Therefore Heb.7:12 is correct.

Heb 7:12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

This ‘change’ was prophesied at;

Gen 49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; (Prv.25:2)

Therefore it is not a change ‘of’ Torah to enact the change ‘in’ Torah that has always been right there ‘in’ the pages of Torah (‘T’aNaK – ‘Penta’teuch = 5 Books of Moses)

Gen.17:9 ‘in their generations'; in connection with circumcision – Num.15:38 ‘throughout their generations'; in connection with ‘Tzitzits’ – Num.35:29 ‘throughout your generations’ in connection with Levitical statutes in contrast with;

Jer 31:32 ‘Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers … which my covenant they brake’

“Fathers” speaks of ‘generations’ – “my covenant they brake” is Paul’s exact argument;

Rom 2:25 For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision.

Heb.7:12 is not a change to ‘no law’ – it is not a change to ‘no priesthood’. This ‘change’ <metathesis> is a reversion back to the original Melchizedek Priesthood standards – a reversion back to Plan ‘A’ in the parameters of Melchizedek Priesthood Law – both Covenant and non-Covenant. Examples of Melchizedek non-Covenant Law issues would include; Passover, Redeeming of the first Born, Clean Meats, New Moons, Jubilee Year, etc. and the like not found in the Book of the Covenant at Ex19:5-24:8; but stated (including evidenced) before between the balance of Gen.1:1 to Ex.24:8 (actually v:11; for Ex.24:9-11 is the Melchizedek Covenant Confirming Meal).

Eph 2:12 That at that time ye were without Messiah (Christ), being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without Yah (God) in the world:

As you read Rom 5:14, ask yourself – realizing that death did reign, has reigned and is still reigning since Adam; why did the Apostle Paul stop with ‘Moses’? I submit and further assert that there is a very Melchizedek reason why.

Rom 5:14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him (Yahshua) that was to come.

Most don’t consider that Aaron (Ex.32:24) and all the Egypt exodus Israelites had defiled themselves because of the ‘Golden Calf’ covenant breach. Moses was the last Melchizedek Priesthood priest/mediator until the death of Yahshua. This ‘death’ released Him (Yahshua) from the Levitical Law (Heb.7:11-14); to be the Melchizedek High Priest. His death also releases us to be Melchizedek Priests again in keeping with the original calling of Ex.19:5-6 or ‘Plan’ (A). It becomes self-evident that the Levitical Priesthood is at the very best a ‘damage’ control; Plan ‘B’, 2nd string ‘solution’ – a regrouping scramble granted by YHWH against His better judgement of complete mass Israelite genocide (Ex.32:10).

Congratulations what an honor! – Woo Whoooo! What a close call is more like it. It then makes perfect sense that Yahshua would be protected from ever being part of a less-than, 2nd best, organic priesthood. Yes – the Levites did distinguish themselves; Yah did cleanse and will work with the Levitical tribe, but that will never change the fact that the Melchizedek Priesthood was never again an option for any Israelite of any tribe until after Yahshua’s death, resurrection and ascension (Heb.8:4, Ezk.20:10-25).

Heb 8:4 “For if He (Yahshua) were on earth, He should not be a priest, …” (Heb.7:13-14/1Pt.2:9)

Conclusion – We (post crucifixion) are under the Melchizedek Priesthood – We are under all the Melchizedek period and pre- Book of the Covenant statues (Gen.1:1- Ex.24-8-11) & the New Testament Melchizedek Priesthood edicts (Mat.1:1 – Rev.22:21) – we are under none of the Levitical post- Book of the Covenant breach statues (Ex.24:12 – Dt.34:12 / Ezk.20:10-25); unless by virtue of restating the original Melchizedek (Gen.1:1- Ex.24-8-11) position.

Yah’s Esteem – Dr. David L. Perry Th.D.

PS / From – Meira Bat Yah

Heb 7:12 – For the PRIESTHOOD being CHANGED, of necessity there takes place a CHANGE OF LAW also.

Understand the differences between these two priesthoods and what changed, and new understandings will FLOOD in like never before! E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G makes so much more sense and doesn’t have to be “explained away”. Yehusha fits perfectly, even Paul fits perfectly. No seemingly contradictions whatsoever! This is important! Don’t blow it off!

Hi Dave,
You look like you’ve got it covered nicely! Excellent work! I’m away on family vacation right now so I won’t be able to dig in deep into this.
I realize with these people and their ‘rebuttals’ of the Malki that most just want to advance the religious games that they’ve settled into and champion. Truth will be presented to us by YHWH it’s then a question of whether we’re willing to sacrifice our pride, intellect and doctrine to receive it. These people just aren’t at the moment so I just move on and get rid of their sand between my toes which causes irritation on the narrow path journey of Malki BOC refinement.
BTW. Those ‘covenant’ answers he gives are just old mixed up church doctrines with a Messianic veneer, who’s he kidding?

Love you brother!

*************************

First, we MUST (if we are talking Covenant) begin the story in the Garden with the Broken Covenant between Adam (not Eve) and YaHuWaH in Genesis 1-2. Following the FALL OF ADAM, all the puzzle pieces come together (which is obviously too intense to break them down) with the Melchizedek Priesthood (Firstborn, King, & Priest) — 8 Covenant, 4 of which are ratified by Blood. They are as follows:

**My answer – Error; Actually there was no formal proposed/agreed ‘if you; then I’ covenant – but Adam did break relationship which necessitated the making of subsequent covenants.

1) Genesis 6-9 between Noah & every living creature & YaHuWaH… not blood ratified

**My answer – Agreed

2) Genesis 15:8-21 between Abram & YaHuWaH (Yahushua standing in on Abram’s behalf) this was unconditional and BLOOD RATIFIED. & was COVENANT exclusive dealing with LAND

**My answer – Error; This Genesis 15:8-21 COVENANT has a condition – passing btx the pieces accepting the penalty of *death* – Gen.12 you do not mention is unconditional (Heb.6:13) with no death position.

3) Genesis chapter 17 between Abraham & YaHuWaH of which was BLOOD RATIFIED and CONDITIONAL (requiring Abraham & household to be circumcised). This COVENANT was exclusively regarding SEED — of which Isaac is named and to be born in one year

**My answer – Error; There is blood involved in being circumcised but it is sprinkled on no one or anything & circumcision is not a Cov’t it is the token/sign of the Cov’t Gen.17:11 & this is not ‘exclusively regard the SEED — of which Isaac …’ it did include; it was to be for all Gen.17:12

4) Exodus 19:4-Exodus 24:8 — The Book of the Covenant which was BLOOD RATIFIED and required OBEDIENCE & offer was to make them Kings and Priests. The Covenant was the 10 Words (Commandments) of which they BROKE within the 40 days Moses was up the Mountain. This is extremely important: Every element of the events surrounding the deliverance out of Egypt was fulfilled out of the two prior Abram/Abrahamic blood covenants prior with EXCETPION of the SIN OF THE AMORITES reaching full measure (Genesis 15:15) & them actually possessing the LAND of Canaan. The plan was them to go into the LAND immediately after the wedding @ Mt Sinai… the main point here: ACTUALLY while this was labelled The Book of The Covenant, the ACTUAL covenant was the TEN WORDS (COMMANDMENTS / Duet 4:13) and the Book of the Covenant was given to Aaron and Hur to govern the people with Statutes & Judgments (Exodus 21-23) to administer the Ten Words. What happened next? The Sin of the Golden Calf… btw — the first 40 day trip up the mountain (that you begin the Book of the Law with) was actually the instructions of YHWH to separate himself from the people because they asked Moses to go insted of them. I could walk you through this in detail because it is confusing as the events in Exodus 19 & 20 are not in chronological order and Deuteronomy 4 & 5 supports the details. The result was THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE TABERNACLE … not “The Book of the Law”… let’s continue. The SIN OF THE GOLDEN CALF is what changed the whole story with Levites being exchanged as PRIESTS and the SACRIFICIAL SYSTEM only comes into effect becuase the Book of the Covenant was BLOOD RATIFIED and now there must be shedding of blood for forgiveness. The Levites did this immediately of the shedding of blood by killing 3000 brothers, but the system was ushered in by the NEXT Covenant to be addressed…

**My answer – Error; @’the ACTUAL covenant was the TEN WORDS (COMMANDMENTS / Duet 4:13) …’ In you own words @’ Deuteronomy 4 & 5 supports the details’ – Actually read and understand – Dt 4:1, 5:1, 9:10, 10:4, Ex.24:3 – @ ‘the events in Exodus 19 & 20 are not in chronological order’ – They most certainly are. – – ‘ @ because the Book of the Covenant was BLOOD RATIFIED and now there must be shedding of blood for forgiveness’ patently Wrong! Gen 3:21/ Gen.9:4 – ‘by killing 3000 brothers’ ??? To pay for all Israel’s Sin ??? This was a Cov’t (Ex 22:24) penalty not some blanket national sin atonement!

5) The SECOND SET OF STONE TABLETS (amazingly NOBODY I have ever heard teach or talk covenant does not address this covenant) Dave, THIS IS WHAT SCRIPTURE CALLS “THE LAW OF MOSES” — NOT the “Torah of Moses” as in the first five books. This COVENANT (the second set of stone tablets) is mentioned briefly in Exodus 34:10-28, but it is the entire Book of Leviticus. Ironically, beginning with the first 7 chapters of Leviticus addressing SACRIFICES… because… the Sin of the Golden Calf. So much more to cover here but let’s move on…

**My answer – Error; ‘The SECOND SET OF STONE TABLETS’ merely replaced the 1st set – “THE LAW OF MOSES” ie Moses, the books of Moses, the words of Moses, Torah, Pentateuch (Penta – 5) – @’This COVENANT (the second set of stone tablets) is mentioned briefly in Exodus 34:10-28, but it is the entire Book of Leviticus’ – Again wrong! At multi levels

6) Just as THE LAW OF MOSES (2nd set of stone tablets) would not have been introduced or given (nor the Book of Leviticus or much of Numbers) had it not been for the Golden Calf, the Book of Deuteronomy would not have been given had it not been for the addition sin of the Bad Report of the 10 spies. As a result the FIRST GENERATION (who had received the initial priesthood calling with the Book of the Covenant) out of Egypt was “laid their bodies waste in the wilderness” and all died by RECEIVING THE 40 YEAR PENALTY. Usher in: THE BOOK OF THE LAW which is the BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY. Covenant written in the 40th year 11th month in the land of Moab which is where the Amorites lived (this is to fulfill the last element of the PROMISE to Abram in Genesis 15:16) as the Deuteronomy for the first 3 chapters covers the defeat of the Amorite kings Og and Bashan. The BOOK OF THE LAW was a covenant carrying CURSES for DISOBEDIENCE and BLESSINGS for OBEDIENCE. It also covers that scattering of the people when they disobey and the REGATHERING which MUCH of the New Testament deals with this the Duet chapter 30 as YHWH will circumcise our hearts (30 verse 6) and YHWH’s WORD is not HARD to KEEP because it is NEAR TO YOU and you do not need to ascend into heaven (Romans 10:6-8 quoting 30 verses 11-13). This COVENANT was NAILED TO THE STAKE with its ordinances and statutes (Ephesians 2:14-15, Colossians 2:14, Deuteonomony 31:26 as this verse says IT WAS A WITNESS AGAINST THEM) It was to be initiated with half the tribes on Mt Gerizim and the other half on Mt Ebal to pronounce blessings and curses on the people… which Joshua was meditating on THIS COVENANT in Joshua 1:8 and they instituted the COVENANT in Joshua 8 — exactly how they were told to in Deuteronomy chapter 26. Paul actually verbatum quotes the CURSE they said over themself in Deuteronomy 26:27 in Galatians 3:10. There is SO MUCH MORE anchors to this COVENANT, but the bottom conclusion which I just found recently is that Book of the Law as it was placed BESIDE the Ark of the Covenant (Deut 31:26) as it took the PLACE of the sacrficial systerm as the SIN OFFERING. The words SIN OFFERING are mentioned over 100 times in Leviticus but not once in Deuteronomy, and only a couple more times up til the Messiah… with the EXCEPTION of 14 times “sin offering” is mentioned in Ezekiel chapters 40-48 because this is the millennial reign bringing back the Levites to take the peoples “sin offerings”. THE BOOK OF THE LAW is the COVENANT made in MOAB (that’s where they were on the edge of the LAND where the Amorites lived) which was made in ADDITION TO the one made in Horeb (the second set of stone tablets)… this verse is Deuteronomy 29:1

**My answer – Error; @’THE BOOK OF THE LAW which is the BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY – THE BOOK OF THE LAW includes the BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY but is Not limited to – The BOOK OF THE LAW carried CURSES for DISOBEDIENCE and BLESSINGS for OBEDIENCE to the covenant & was Not a covenant unto itself – @ This COVENANT was NAILED TO THE STAKE with its ordinances and statutes (Ephesians 2:14-15, Colossians 2:14, Deuteonomony 31:26 – This was not a Cov’t as Deuteonomony 31:26 you quote directly states BOOK OF THE “Law” @ ‘Book of the Law as it was placed BESIDE the Ark of the Covenant (Deut 31:26) as it took the PLACE of the sacrficial systerm as the SIN OFFERING’ -What??? took the PLACE of ??? it spelled out and hinged on the sacrificial system -

And this totally irresponsible statement by Kirk – @’ The words SIN OFFERING are mentioned over 100 times in Leviticus but not once in Deuteronomy, and only a couple more times up til the Messiah… with the EXCEPTION of 14 times “sin offering” is mentioned in Ezekiel chapters 40-48 because this is the millennial reign bringing back the Levites to take the peoples “sin offerings”.’ -

**Really what about Ex.29, 30; Num.6, 7, 8, 15, 28, 29 – And riddle me this – Act 18; 21:23-24 about Paul keeping the Law (Heb.7:11) from Num.9? Or how ’bout Lk 2:27, Php 3:5 or how bout this tidbit – ‘8th Day’ circumcision actually isn’t in Duet either.

7) Next is COVENANT with DAVID is located in 2 Samuel and 1 Kings… dealing with the restoration of part of the Melchizedek Priesthood, which like the the prior two covenants was a result of disobedience by the people wanting a King. Much of this is self explanatory, however each covenant we could talk on for days.

**My answer – Error; 1Sa 18:3 & 20:16 are btx Johnathan & David this is about David’s transfer legitimacy as king not concerning any priesthood let alone the Melchizedek Priesthood – Your reading that issue in – 2 Samuel 5:3 continues in the same vein – further a King could not also be a priest – Num.3:12 you have to be levite to be a priest – Saul, Johnathan & David, etc. are Jews from the tribe of Judah. As for 1Ki 2:3-4 is David’s charge to Solomon v:1 – ??? the rest of the chp/Bible David is dead. Besides all that it still isn’t a Cov’t of Promise attaching to Gen.15 or having the 4 factors

8) The renewed covenant which RENEWED ONLY the OFFER of the Book of the Covenant… and tied everything else together. So much more hear to tie it all together…

**My answer – Error; The ‘New’ Cov’t does have some ‘RENEWED’ aspects – even Jer.31:32 tells the honest that ‘not like’ I made with their fathers … out of Egypt … they break – Which 1 was that? Hello – the Book of the Covenant For a covenant to be a ‘Covenant of Promise’ (Eph.2:12) there has to be these 4 things present – 1] A Proposal, 2] An Agreement, 3] A Blood Ratification, 4] A Covenant Confirming Meal. You see all of these factors present at the Original Melchizedek Book of the Covenant (Ex.19:5-24:8 / :9-11). You see NONE of these factors present at this Levitical Covenant/Law re-instatement of Ex.34 or any other so named Covenant. *3rd – there is no mass invitation into a national priesthood (All 12 Tribes) as you see at Ex.19:5-6. Ex.34 and those that followed were ‘imposed’ on the nation of Israel – Heb.9:10

Kirk C – A teaching a few weeks ago I gave somewhat of an introduction to our COVENANT TIMELINE we developed which is so important to teach from. If you have the patience (as a lady named Mary caused a few interruptions with her computer problems) please watch the first 25-30 minutes to get an idea of how we map this out… here is the link:

**My answer – Kirk – “so important” ??? you are reading in and seeing what you want at most every turn – then convoluting the factors to your own conclusion with a corresponding accolade – Truth must be fully-accounted-for not leaving any step out or reading in what is not there.

Kirk C https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-lEot5Ds8Y Sacrifices through Lens of Covenant, part 2 Study http://www.youtube.com August 15, 2014 continuation from previous study covering Covenants 2-8

**More Error – “All Considered 1 Cov’t” (7min 40sec) ??? By who? You? You choose to ignore Gal.3:15 and Ezk.20:10-25, etc. – Why go on – It’s all (3Hr+) based on a faulty premise.

One New Man – Simple Outline

One New Man – Simple Outline

One New Man (Eph.2:15) is a start; a ground floor opportunity to set things straight – to make the path straight for our King – to reevaluate all Church, Jewish and Rabbinic values to see if they are indeed Biblical – To test the Truth, correct the Errors and trash the Lies.

There is no One New Man without the Melkizedeq Priesthood minus any version (a counterfeit; be it Church/Messianic/Jewish/Ortohdox/Rabbinic, anti-missionary, etc.) of the Levitical Priesthood mindset (Ezk.20:10-25). We cannot be One New Man (Eph.2:15) without accepting Yahshua our Melkizedeq High Priest. Ergo; We cannot be One New Man without accepting our position in the Melkizedeq Priesthood (1Ptr.2:9). When We accept Yahshua we (Jews & Gentiles – the One New Man part) become the ‘commonwealth of Israel’ (Eph.2:12) in the same ‘household’ (Eph.2:19/Rom.11:25).

Acts 17:11 tells us to ‘search’, 2Tim.2:15 tells us to ‘rightly divide’, Acts 15:10 About the ‘Gentile Question’ tells us not to ‘lay on [what] we and our fathers [Jews] where not able to bare’. While Acts 15:19-21 is the clearest NT directive that we are to learn the words of Moses on Shabbat. This in itself ID’s a ‘rightly divide’ point.

We must realize that the Melkizedeq Priesthood (YHWH’s 1st chioce) is a much freer Priesthood; But not the freeskate of the Grace ‘No law’ Christian Church neither the all law Levitical version approach of the Jewish/Ortohdox/Rabbinic, etc. Understanding that we are to be on that straight & narrow path; neither turning to the right nor to the left; knowing that there is a Christian Church ditch on 1 side and a Jewish Rabbinic ditch on the other. Adopting the attitude; that we are not about to give up a bunch of Church error only to embrace a bunch of Jewish/Rabbinic error.

This is a simple 1 page overview; yes there are deeper questions that require reasoned answers. That being said; Gen.1:1 thru Ex.24:8-11 is the Melkizedeq portion of Torah (T of the TaNaK – The 1st 5 Books of Moses) that include; The 10 Com’dts, 7th Day Sabbath, Annual Feastdays, New Moons, Clean Meats, Not eating blood, Not eating unclean, Redeeming of the 1st Born, Passover, Unl-Brd, Shavuot, Sukkot, etc.

What many have yet to realize is that that according to Jos.5:2 & :5 (under the Levitical Priesthood Heb.7:11) after a 40yr (Ex.32 covenant break) secession; circumcision (1ce Melkizedeq-Gen.17) is now a Levitical issue. Atonement fasting is a post Ex.32 covenant break phenomenon – Ex 29:33 Aaron & Sons were to *eat* the Atonement – Further that Rom.5:11 (of Mlkzdq renewal) declares that Yahshua is our Atonement. That the law of The Book of the Law (Gal.3:10 – Ex.24:12 thru Dt.31:26) is Levitical Heb.7:11 and was added because of transgression Gal.3:19. Exactly what Ezk.20:10-25 tells us and evidences of Ex.19:5 thru Ex.32. Plainly that the Levitical ‘not good’ was ‘also’ added to the ‘My’ Melkizedeq because of transgression. Plainly YHWH is the Melek Zedeq – King of Righteousness.

Yahweh says that He does nothing except He reveals it to His prophets (Amos 3:7) – He also says that is His good pleasure to hide a matter (Prv.25:2) – Having said that – there is a pending change of Torah spelled out ‘in’ Torah Gen.49:10. Therefore it is Not a change ‘of’ Torah to enact the change ‘in’ Torah; that has always been right there in the pages of Torah. Thereby it is not a change, but a fully filling of Torah Mt.5:17/Jn.7:16. That must have a fulfillment also; within the physical earthly lifetime of Yahshua at His 1st coming. To do anything less is a violation of Dt.4:2.

We must realize that Yahshua is our Melkizedeq High Priest; That we are called into that Priesthood (1Ptr.2:9). We must truly look and assess 2Cor.3:11-13, Heb.7: 11-12; 9:10, Jer.31:31-33/Heb.8:8-10, etc. with a fresh Melkizedeq Mind. We must accept that Church is to be part of the Israel commonwealth Eph.2:12, Rom.11:25, Gen.48:19, Jn.10:16 incumbent to the same Melkizedeq Covenant and Laws (Ex.12:49 – which is Melkizedeq).

We are to have the ‘faith’ of Abraham (Rom.4:16). At the point of Yahweh’s Gen.12 ‘oath’ did Abraham wear tzitzits? Or a Kippa? Was he or anyone else circumcized, Was there a Book of the Law? Was there a Levitical Priesthood, Was there a Levite? Was there a Talmud, Mishnah, Avot, Targums, Gamarah, Rabbis, Oral Torah, etc. or any of the things thought so vitally important? Answer; No – But there was a Melkizedeq Priest Gen.14 – And it was said of Abraham; That he kept – my voice, my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws (Gen.18:19, 26:5), all Melkizedeq.

I was recently, mildly rebuked for grilling chicken for fellowship on the Sabbath. I never considered it at the time, I was helping my wife who had much on her that weekend. I saw it as a labor of love and ignored the rebuke. It was a delight to read in your book Back to the Melchizedek Future, and realize there was no fire restrictions until the Book of the Law. There are beginning to be a lot of people who will look into this enough to study it out and begin to see it. Often as I read, then search through the scriptures, there is a BIG smile on my face. It really changes things. Thanks.

Donald McGrew
Dr. Dave. I have put your book down and picked it up again for over a year. It is good but requires much study and searching to test it. Recently I have been driven to finish it. (Back to the Melchizedek Future). I will then stay in the another one. I have also snatched up any thing that Matthew Nolan has put it on the same subject.
I believe it changes every thing, if you believe Messiah had returned once as Yeshua. It has been a great and benefiting study. Shalom

Donna Overton Great Book …..For any Truth Seeker ……..Torah Keeper ….Who believes in Yahshua!

Donna Overton Woohoo! What an eye opener, opens the Scriptures to a Higher Level!!

Janis Walters-Barelman Like, like, like, like, and then some more likes!

Donna Teague – Dr. Dave, I have just this a.m. finished your “Back to the Melchizedek Future”. I read it slowly and thoroughly checking scripture references as I read. It is amazing. No, I don’t have any questions. I thought you explained things well and even outlined questions you still have. The book has been so helpful in cementing exactly which covenant I want to be in = Melchizedek or Levitical. Melchizedek wins hands down. While I admit this has not been a difficult choice because I’ve never been fond of the Rabbinical Judaism Messianic way since embracing my Hebrew roots 10 years ago, still I now recognize what a schizophrenic position it was to keep some of the laws and ignoring the most Rabbinical and ones “that couldn’t be kept”. I appreciate your efforts to enlighten us all. I have your “Covenant of Promise” book but I couldn’t wait to read “Back to the Mel. Future” so I started there. Reading this book has really opened my eyes as never before to the full extent of what Yahshua has done for me. Our Melchizedek future is very exciting.

This is my attempt at a 1 page topical overview – Please critique and add to************************************

One New Man

Two verses we would do well to pay attention to 1] Mt 6:33 ‘seek first the kingdom of YHWH (the King/Melek), and His righteousness (Zedek); and all these things shall be added unto you'; and 2] Mt 25:21 ‘well done,.. good and faithful servant’. Everything that we do in this life should be governed within these 2 verses. “His righteousness” does not mean a version of it, which is a counterfeit (Rom.10:2-3)

One New Man; Is not a Church, Rabbinic or Levitical concept; It is a Melkizedeq issue. A brief overview begins with Ex.19:5-6; YHWH said “‘if’ you keep My Covenant … I will make of you a Kingdom of Priests”. This could only be ‘a nation of’ Melkizedeq Priesthood. There was no such thing as ‘a nation with’ a Levitical only Priesthood until after the Covenant ‘Gold Calf’ breach of Ex.32 (Num.3:12).

This ran concurrent for the next 15 centuries until the death and resurrection of Yahshua. This death was significant, in that; Yahshua lived perfect born ‘under Levitical law’ (Gal.4:4/Heb.7:11); the same law that said you had to be a Levite to be a Priest. Yahshua is from the Tribe of Judah (Heb.7:13-15) most of Israel and all grafted in are not *Levite* – Therefore the Levitical law had to change back to the Pre-Ex.32 breach standards back to the original Melkizedeq Law (Heb.7:12); for Yahshua to be Melkizedeq High Priest. The same Melkizedeq Priesthood we all including Jews are being called back into (1Ptr.2:9).

The idea that Torah cannot be divided is originally a Jewish/Rabbinic idea; not supported or found in the pages of Torah or the rest of the entire Bible. The ‘change’ of Torah is evident throughout Torah – Gen.49:10, Ex.32:10, Num.3:12, Num.8:18 (even evidenced by Jos.5:5). Further evidence of this same thing is Ezk.20:10-25 and Heb.7:12, etc.

The awareness most need to understand is that; it is not a change ‘of’ Torah to enact the change ‘in’ Torah that’s always been right there in the pages of Torah – That also must have a fulfillment (Gen.49:10/Mat.5:17-19).

We all must admit and realize that ‘not one jot or tittle’ and to the Torah and the Witness if they speak not according to this word there is no light in them. Would have to include Gen.49:10. Torah is the standard, everything has to agree with Moses’ 5 book Torah.

This has been a 1 page overview; you will have to look up these verses – there is much to consider – Covenants, Laws, Priesthoods, What Yahshua did, What Yahshua said, ‘Change’ from Torah, Evidenced in the New Testament – (Gal.3:19, 2Cor.3:11, Heb.7:12; Jer.31:31-33, Heb.8:8-10, etc.)

I would be remiss to make these statements without further explanation as to evidence found in your Bible. There are two books that you can get; 1] The Covenants of Promise, 2] Back to the Melchizedek Future – These can be acquired thru;

Yah’s Esteem

 

The Torah of Gen.49:10

The Torah of Gen.49:10

What could be more Messianic in the Hebrew roots than a Messiah who came to fulfill Gen.15 at His death in the context of Gen.49:10 and ‘The Book of the Covenant (Ex.19:5 thru 24:8) – Which just so happens to All be in a Melkizedeq context under Yahshua our High Priest after the order of Melkizedeq.

The same Melkizedeq Priesthood we are being ‘called’ back into (Ex.19:5-6/1Ptr.2:9/Heb.7:12)

The same Melkizedeq Priesthood and its laws that has to be reinstated over the stand in (Num.3:12) Levitical Priesthood (because of Covenant breach Ex.32) and its laws (Ezk.20:24-25/Heb.7:11-12)

The Torah of Gen.49:10 (‘until’ ie change) has to be ‘fulfilled’ also

Eph 2:14

Eph 2:14

Eph 2:14 ¶ For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

We are usually lead to believe that this ‘wall’ kept the Gentiles out. But – consider this;

The First Temple – The Hebrew Bible reports that the First Temple was built in 957 BCE[1] by King Solomon (reigned c. 970-c. 930 BCE).[2] According to Deuteronomy, as the sole place of Jewish sacrifice (Deuteronomy 12), the Temple replaced the portable sanctuary (aka The Tabernacle) constructed in the Sinai Desert under the auspices of Moses, as well as local sanctuaries, and altars in the hills.[3] This temple was however sacked a few decades later by Sheshonk I, Pharaoh of Egypt.

Although efforts were made at partial reconstruction, it was only in 835 BCE when Jehoash, King of Judah in the second year of his reign invested considerable sums in reconstruction, only to have it stripped again for Sennacherib, King of Assyria c. 700 BCE. The First Temple was totally destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE when they sacked the city.[5]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temple_in_Jerusalem

The Second Temple was an important Jewish Holy Temple (Hebrew: בֵּית־הַמִּקְדָּשׁ הַשֵּׁנִי: Bet HaMikdash HaSheni; Arabic: بيت القدس: Beit al-Quds) which stood on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem during the Second Temple period, between 516 BCE and 70 CE. It replaced the First Temple which was destroyed in 586 BCE, when the Jews of the Kingdom of Judah went to exile, known as Babylonian Captivity. Jewish eschatology includes a belief that the Second Temple will in turn be replaced by a future Third Temple.

This is frustratingly difficult to prove – if you find more substantiation Please feel free to send – although I did find this that undergirds the same asserted premise.

“…Within the court of the Israelites was that of the (Levite) priests, which was separated by a low wall one cubit in height…”

http://books.google.com/books?id=HG82AAAAMAAJ&pg=PA543&lpg=PA543&dq=%22first+temple%22+-+wall+of+separation+priests+from+Israelites&source=bl&ots=uEmGCHb29M&sig=D2MonDP9yNvY8_HQiVmJHVHFans&hl=en&sa=X&ei=mkXnU8_0EI_soAS8r4DYBg&ved=0CDoQ6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=%22first%20temple%22%20-%20wall%20of%20separation%20priests%20from%20Israelites&f=false

The point is there would have been no reason for the First Temple to have a wall to separate gentiles in this autonomous Israelite Kingdom Nation. The only reason for a wall of separation was to separate Levite Priests from non-Priest Israelites.

The wall separating gentiles; was King Herod’s addition to King Herod’s Second Temple. The question is why would the Bible need to concern itself with a unTorah addition by an unTorah King? For we know by Torah that Yah had set a difference between the Levites and the Firstborn (including all Israel) because of the Covenant-breach (Ex.32 / Num.3:12; 8:17)

The significance of this is that this ‘wall’ by First Temple standards was to separate those who could be priests (Levites) from those who could not (all the rest). Since Yahshua our Melkizedeq High Priest has come ‘we’ (all including ‘all the rest’) are called into the Melkizedeq Priesthood (1Ptr.2:9, Rev.5:10). No longer under Levitical injunctions, standards or laws (Heb.7:12)

Rest assured that the Melkizedeq portion of Torah (Gen.1:1 thru Ex.24:8-11) contain Torah Melkizedeq Covenant and Law – Sabbath, Appt’d Times, Clean meats, Passover, etc. When he ‘broke down’ the wall of partition He was doing so that all First-Fruit believers could once again be ‘Melkizedeq Priests’ in the “household of Yah” (Eph.2:19)
