Hebrews Thru Melkizedeq Eyes 4

Hebrews Thru Melkizedeq Eyes 4

Heb 10:1 For the (Levitical) law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices (animal) which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. (Heb.7:11)

Heb 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

Heb 10:7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O [Yah]. – includes Gen. 3:5; 15:17; 49:10, Dt.18:15; – John 6:14

9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O Yah. He taketh away the first (covenant that was broken – Ex.32), that he may establish the second. (Jer.31:31-33)

10 By which we are sanctified through the offering of the body (blood) of Yahshua once for all.

Heb 10:11 And every (Levitical) priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

12 But this (Melkizedeq) man (Yahshua), after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of Yah; (crucifixion confluence intersection of many issues)

Mat 26:39 And he (Yahshua) went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

It was not possible – there was only the ‘one way’ that all the prophecies could be fulfilled. We must realize that many things intersected at the cross; Yahshua’s one death simultaneously in confluence satisfied several scripturally prophetic issues. Yahshua died the death of the ‘adulterous bride'; He died the death of the ‘rebellious son'; He died the death for the ‘sins of the whole world’ and He died the death for the breaking of the Gen.15 covenant. But most importantly; He died as the spotless lamb of YHWH; His (Yahshua’s) Blood shed (by scourging and crucifixion) did blood ratify the ‘New Covenant’ (That must be accepted to be received – Mt.26:24, Mk.14:26, Lk.22:20 – Jer.31:31-33/Heb.8:8-10; 9:12).

Heb 10:16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith [YHWH], I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; – Jer 31:31-33; Heb 8:8-10

Heb 10:17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. – Jer 31:34; 33:8; 50:20

18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. – Could only be Melkizedeq

19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness/ liberty to enter into the holiest by the blood of Yahshua,

21 And having an (Melkizedeq) high priest over the house of Yah; – Eph.2:19

22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith/(Covenant fidelity), having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

Heb 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our (Melkizedeq) faith without wavering;

24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

26 For if we sin wilfully (an about face returning to a sinful life style or denying Yahshua) after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour (YHWH’s Melkizedeq Kingdom) adversaries.

28 He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:

29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of YHWH, and hath counted the (spotless Melkizedeq) blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace (ie pardon)?

Heb 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living (Melek/King) YHWH

Heb 10:35 Cast not away therefore your (Melkizedeq) confidence, which hath great … reward.

Heb 10:38 Now the just shall live by (Melkizedeq) faith/faithfulness - Fidelity: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen

faith = Pistis/Emunah – fidelity – as in Covenant … – In class I learned that an Orthodox Rabbi was asked what faith was – His answer was pure gold – “The confirmation of the fact”

Heb 11:6 But without faith (fidelity to Cov’t) it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to Yah must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Read the rest of Chp.11 with this faith/fidelity understanding

Heb 12:2 Looking unto Yahshua the author and finisher of our (Melkizedeq) faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of Yah (the King ie Melek).

Heb 12:18 For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, 19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: 20 (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: 21 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) – Ex 19:11-25 – Ex 20:19

Heb 12:23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to Yah the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Yahshua the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better (Melkizedeq) things than that of Abel.

Heb 12:29 For YHWH (King/Melek) is a consuming fire. Gen.15:17; Ex 24:17

Heb 13:8 Yahshua Messiah the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. – Melkizedeq

Heb 13:9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. (Eph 4:14 to & fro)

Heb 13:20 Now the Yah of peace, that brought again from the dead our Master Yahshua (Rom.10:9-10), that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting (Melkizedeq) covenant,

Yah’s Esteem and Great Blessing

Why Melkizedeq?

Why Melkizedeq?

It has been suggested that I am giving Melkizedeq answers to those that are not even aware of a Melkizedeq reason for; and therefore have not formulated any Melkizedeq questions based on said unawareness of non-exposure.

To be sure there is a huge segment of Christian and even Messianic Society that do not read their Bibles; and or at that in any meaningful researching way. Oh – Yes; they do have programs to read the Bible in a year or even 90 days. But that kind of breakneck speed-read will not produce the applied in-depth studied research needed to ‘search the scriptures daily to see if these things are so’ (Acts 17:11). There is that chance that the more astute may look deeper; but not so the vast majority.

I am certain that haSatan gets a big belly laugh at that situation. That kind of ‘topical skim’ lends itself to the ‘spiritual schizophrenic’ situation that is mold-able by both the Christian Church and the Messianic Assembly alike further extending to Rabbinic and Orthodoxy. By way of explanation;

There are a variety of sources to consider; everything from scholars to biblical commentary to religious clergy on both sides of the Gentile-Jewish line. Pastors, Priests, Ministers, Reverends, Bible Teachers and Rabbis are all taught in their respective ways that they teach to subsequent audiences including those that will become future Pastors, Priests, Ministers, Reverends, Bible Teachers and Rabbis. They all draw from their respective material they have previously learned from and are (or will be) drawn to. These future selections will for the most part agree with what was previously learned. This is a self-feeding situation that has produced what we have the most of; a ‘believer base’ of the spiritually ‘schizophrenic’. By way of quick definition a ‘schizophrenic’ can physically appear normal, but a ‘schizophrenic’ operates in a perception of a perceived reality that is not actual reality.

In much the same way a ‘spiritual schizophrenic’ can have a certain view or selected religious views that are not based in or track biblical reality. Many times this view is taught and continually reinforced to the point that ‘normal’ religious understandings (accepted Church/Messianic populous norms) do not even agree with what the Messiah actually did and at some few points what He actually said. Unless there is an honest will to think individually for ourselves; we can be (have been and will be) taught to make erroneous (including random) associations either redirecting what we read from the Bible or outright disregarding what is plainly there. Those that are versed in and teach wilderness preparedness will tell their students that there are two main reasons why people get and stay lost; 1] No remembered awareness and 2] Disregarding those things that would indicate direction. It is the very same biblically.

To the point; Why Melkizedeq? – Those that have read the NT Book of Hebrews have to be aware that 9x’s Yahshua is ID’d as our Melkizedeq High Priest; confirmed by Ps.110. Hebrews 7:11-12 deals with the ‘Rightly Dividing’ point of 2Tm.2:15. Initially IDing the difference division between Levitical and Melkizedeq concerns. Now if Yahshua is our Melkizedeq High Priest and we by 1Ptr.2:9 are being called into that Priesthood; it would become of paramount importance to understand and know what that Melkizedeq Priesthood is all about. After all if Yahshua is going to be our Melkizedeq High Priest; that presupposes that He will have to have Melkizedeq lower Priests to be Higher than (Rev.1:6; 5:10).

It would be helpful to know that there was a Priesthood before the Levitical – in was the Melkizedeq (Gen.14:18) Priesthood. The Sinai Book of the Covenant (Ex.19:5 thru 24:8-11) was a Melkizedeq Priesthood Covenant that promised the Melkizedeq Priesthood ‘if’ they (all Israel) would keep the Covenant (Ex.19:5-6). They did not. Yahweh was to destroy all Israel (Ex.32:10), but Moses pleaded, tho Yahweh relented He put them under a Levitical Priesthood – the Levitical Priesthood was born (Num.3:12). A huge difference between being a nation ‘of’ priests and being a nation ‘with’ priests.

Yahweh said He added laws that were ‘not’ good; whereby they should ‘not’ live (Ezk.20:24-25 compare to 20:11 & :21). To confirm that; Acts 15:10 clearly states that there was a ‘yoke’ that neither they (the Israelites) nor our fathers were ‘able to bear’. To further confirm that same point Gal.3:19 speaks of ‘laws’ that were ‘added’. To the ‘law’? No; in addition to/along side the Covenant (Gal.3:18).

To contrast that point Yahshua our Melkizedeq High Priest said at;

Mt.11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. – And He also said;

Mt.6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of Yah, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

You may want to know that in Hebrew – kingdom is Melkuth – Yah is the King or Melek – and His righteousness is Zedeq – In other words we are to seek 1st the Melkizedeq Kingdom of Yahweh AND His Melkizedeq righteousness.

The Melkizedeq Priesthood (Covenant & Law) is Not the ‘No Law’ free-skate of the Christian Church – BUT – neither is it a Levitical ‘All Law’ (including “’not’ good”) anchor drag. Not to mention the ‘Oral’ and added nonsense of Rabbinic and Orthodox Judaism (et. al) that denies Yahshua as Mashiyach.

If you cannot count to 1, if this is not reason enough, all the other points you should know as well about the division of Priesthood, Laws, Covenants, Circumcision, etc. will not profit you anything.

Hebrews Thru Melkizedeq Eyes 3

Hebrews Thru Melkizedeq Eyes 3

Heb 9:1 Then verily the first covenant had *also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary
Indicating heavily that the 2nd does ‘also’.

Heb 9:8 The [Set-Apart Spirit] signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: – That Yahshua forged

Heb 9:10 Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation <diorthosis> .

1357. diorywsiv diorthosis, dee-or’-tho-sis

from a compound of 1223 and a derivative of 3717, meaning to straighten thoroughly; rectification, i.e. (specially) the Messianic restauration:–reformation. – *Gen.49:10

Heb 9:11 But [Yahshua] being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

Heb 9:14 How much more shall the blood of [Yahshua], who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to [Yah], purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living [Yah]? 15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. 16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.

Heb 9:17 For a testament <diatheke>/ (covenant) is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.

Testator – <diatithemai> 1303. diatiyemai diatithemai, dee-at-ith’-em-ahee – middle voice from; to put apart, i.e. (figuratively) dispose (by assignment, compact, or bequest):–appoint, make, testator.

This is 1 that the translators got wrong; proof is Torah backing up v:18 Yes the ‘appointed’ sacrifice had to die – a lamb, bull or goat -But- There is not 1 biblical covenant where a man had to die – Except for Yahshua – And what most don’t realize He accepted to be that Go`el ‘Kinsmen Redeemer’ Sacrifice back at Gen.15:17 standing in the ‘death position for Abraham & descendants. He did so at the Cross.

Marriage is also a Covenant – It would defeat the purpose if either the Bride or Groom had to die.

18 Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood.

Yes of oxen/bulls Ex 24:5

19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the (Melkizedeq Covenant) law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, (Ex.12/Lev.14)

20 Saying, This is the blood of the testament / (covenant) which Yah hath enjoined unto you.

Ex 24:7-8

Heb 9:21 Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.

22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

This footnote’s to Lev. 17:11 but goes back much further – Gen.3:21, Gen 9:4, Gen.15; Gen.22

23 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For [Yahshua] is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of [Yah] for us:

25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others (animals); 26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now 1ce in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 28 So [Yahshua] was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Dropped the Ball

Dropped the Ball

Just like it is apparent that our history scholars and academics pick and chose what they will cover, present and support; regardless of the proof. Just like our medical providers would rather ‘manage’ – Cut, Poison or Burn disease selling pharmakia instead of cure it or at least give us the whole story. Just like we are made aware of the news the news-folk choose to cover in the way they choose to cover it.

We have scholars, academics and teachers on all sides of the Bible, on all sides of the Torah – From Sunday Church to Sabbath Church, From Messianic (et. al) to Anti-Missionaries to Jewish/Rabbinic (et. al). That from where I stand; have completely dropped the ball and at that for centuries; which certainly includes all my life on some issues in Torah and that includes what can be known of the Melkizedeq ‘rightly dividing’ point (2Tim.2:15) with its issues both Covenant, Law and Priesthood.

Myth #1 – The Law (including Torah) cannot be divided.

To believe & assert this; as the Jews have done for centuries, and have effectively exported to all other groups. The Jews and the others have to ignore Gen.49:10 – the Torah prepackaged awareness of impending ‘change’. Ignoring the fact that – It is not a change ‘of’ Torah to enact the change ‘in’ Torah; that has always been ‘in’ Torah, pre-stated ‘in’ Torah (Amos 3:7).

Further ‘they’ (et. al) have to be ignorant of or completely willful against what Yahweh has said in TaNaK at Ezk.20:10-25, where He lines out that He gave His Melkizedeq Covenant Commandments, Judgments and Statutes that ‘they’ the Sinai Israelites of Torah would not keep; therefore He gave them ‘also’ (in Torah) Levitical Judgments and Statutes that were ‘not good’ whereby they should ‘not live’ (Ezk.20:25). And this contrasted against Ezk.20:11; for Melkizedeq Covenant keeping.

This ‘not good’ speaks of the Torah ‘Gold Calf’ Covenant break incident of Ex.32, where YHWH was going to wipe them all out (v:10); but relented because of Moses. This is where they; 1] lost their Melkizedeq standing (Ex.19:5-6 ‘if’), 2] were remanded to the Levitical Priesthood – a huge difference between being a nation ‘of’ Melkizedeq priests and being a nation ‘with’ Levitical priests, 3] This is where the Israelites stopped circumcising anyone for the rest of Torah as evidenced by Jos.5:5.

Yes; you can say that Yahweh’s ‘not good’ Plan ‘B’ Levitical Priesthood was ‘glorious’ (2Cor.3:11) – It was His way to preserve disobedient Israel – certainly better than complete annihilation (Ex.32:10).

Myth #2 – Physical Circumcision today answers to Gen.17

Gen.17 is under the Melkizedeq Priesthood, it was the Physical Circumcision needed at that time to be in Covenant BUT the Israelites broke the Covenant at Ex.32; now there was no reason to Circumcise. That point is made at Rom.2:25 – This ran concurrent thru the remainder of Torah into Jos.5:2

As stated Jos.5:5 is the awareness point of un-Circumcision that lasted 40+yrs (the rest of Torah) into Jos.5:2 from the Covenant break of Ex.32. Jos.5:2 is after the Covenant break of Ex.32 and the subsequent Levitical Priesthood that followed (Num.3:12); meaning that the 2nd Command to Circumcise came under the Levitical Priesthood (Heb.7:11) and so it is to this day.

So to state this clearly; those today that will Physically Circumcise no matter what Hoo-Haa is being told them, thinking they are being obedient to Gen.17 are actually being obedient to Jos.5:2 under the Levitical Priesthood, with a break span of 40+yrs to settle & make the point.

Myth #3 – And following; I realize the conundrum this presents

Agreeing to Physically Circumcise their 8 day old males – but did not. Getting the Num.15:38 Command to wear tzitzits attesting to keep the law while this nation is becoming more un-Circumcised. Receiving all the Book of the Law added laws while un-Circumcised. Receiving the finished Book of the Law (Dt.31:26) while un-Circumcised. Receiving Manna, Clothes & Shoes that did not wear out, Yah’s edict to circumcise the heart, Spying out the land, The parting of the Jordan River, Spying out Jericho, Receiving Yah’s Grace, Favor and Miracles, etc. prior to being Circumcised at Jos.5:2.

Isn’t it odd that no one knows (including the Jews) that ‘Heart Circumcision’ – the New Testament Circumcision standard (Rom.2:29); was 1st mentioned at Lev.26:41; then at Dt.10:16 & 30:6 in Torah during the 40+yrs of Not Physically Circumcising anyone since the ‘Gold Calf’ of Ex.32 till Jos.5:2 evidenced by Jos.5:5.

I am not making this stuff up and I do not have access to your or the higher ups Bibles. Look this up (Acts 17:11). This and more even tho the proof is there is what’s not being told. And is proof of that – Inconvenient Truth – Sometimes Torah is not what we’ve been told or the way they want to tell it.
