The Melchizedek Guide
This Article meant as a brief ‘Guide’ is far from exhaustive; meant only to point the way.

Gen.1:1 to Ex.24:8-11 is the original Melchizedek Priesthood (Heb.7:3) if by only reason of default of there not being any other. The Melchizedek Priesthood is the primary ‘Plan A’ of Yahweh. ‘The Book of the Covenant’ (Ex.19:5-24:8) is the covenant that promised the Melchizedek Priesthood to all Israel ‘if’ they would keep the covenant (Ex.19:5-6). They did not. YHWH’s solution was to wipe them all out and start over with Moses (Ex.32:10) – the last Melchizedek Priest; for the others (all Israel) had defiled themselves (including Aaron and his sons), having broken the covenant they had just ratified 40 days earlier (Ex.24:7-8).
Moses pleaded for the people – YHWH relented; but now instead of being a ‘nation of priests’ (Melchizedek Priests) from the first-born of all tribes; ‘Plan A’; after the ‘gold calf’ they would now be a nation ‘with’ priests – Levitical Priests from the tribe of Levi (Ex.40:13-15, Num.3:12; 8:14-16); ‘Plan B’ – the Levitical Priesthood was born.
This means that ‘The Book of the Law’ (Dt.31:26) had its start from Ex.24:12 – being the ‘added’ Law (Gal.3:19) outside the blood ratified Covenant (Ex.24:7-8/Gal.3:15) – running through to the end of Deut.. The Levitical Book of the Law must be approached with discernment for there are issues initialized under this Levitical Book of the Law and there are issues that are merely restated (Melchizedek restatements) – Such as The Sabbath, The Ten Commandments, The Feast Days, New Moon, The Redeeming of the First Born, Clean Meats, etc. – that stand in their original Melchizedek position (pre-Ex.24:8-11).
Issues initialized [first mentioned] (under this Levitical Book of the Law (Ex.24:12 – Dt.31:26) include Tzitzits (tassels – Num.15:38), Tithing, Tefillin (Phylacteries – shel rosh head & shel yad arm), Day of Atonement (Lev.23:28 – not found in or before ‘The Book of the Covenant’ – quite possibly from Ex.32:30 post covenant breech), etc.
Rom 5:11 ‘.. but we also joy in Yah through Yahshua, by whom we have now received the atonement.’
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 (the fathers) 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.
For those fixated, convinced of physical circumcision against the clear teaching of Paul – Know that after the ‘gold calf’ covenant break the Israelites stopped circumcising their young for the next 40yrs. (Jos.5:2; 5), well past the time of the tzitzit injunction of Num.15:38. Modern times – Know that means that you are being obedient to Jos.5:2 (under the Levitical Priesthood) and NOT to Gen.17 (under the Melchizedek Priesthood) connected with the Covenants of Gen.15 (Abraham’s Promise) and Ex.19:5-24:8 (Abraham’s Answer) which these same Egyptian Israelite ‘fathers’ broke.
Heb 7:12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law. (Gen.49:10)
Gen 49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come;
This ‘change’ – metathesis – is a reversion back to the original Melchizedek standard of ‘Plan A’
That’s why we will sing the ‘song of Moses’ & the ‘song of the Lamb’ (Rev.15:3) – They are both Melchizedek mediators of their respective Melchizedek Covenants. 1] Book of the Covenant, 2] The New Covenant.
Oral Torah is a myth; Talmud, Mishnah, Avot, etc. is commentary of scripture – it is NOT Torah.
Dt.31:24 And it came to pass, when Moses had made an ‘end’ of writing the words of this law in a
book, until they were ‘finished’,
‘End & Finished’ doesn’t leave much wiggle room – now does it?
