A Melkizedeq Overview


A Melkizedeq Overview

To encapsulate a Melkizedeq overview; as it relates to Abraham and ultimately the Israelites and thereby extending to us as, the grafted in ‘Commonwealth of Israel’ (Eph.2:12/Rom.11:25/Gen.48:19).

Gen.12 is under the Melkizedeq Priesthood lineage (Heb.7:3); and is Yahweh’s everlasting ‘oath’ *to* Abraham and his descendants (us – Rom 4:16). It is unbreakable / It is unconditional, dependent on YHWH alone (Heb 6:13) – Undefilable by man; not dependent on man.

Gen.15 – The Promise Guarantee Covenant. Made *with* Abraham and his descendants. This covenant was conditional (ie breakable) being attached to a ‘death position’ that YHWH and His Son Yahshua accepted on our behalf (Gen.15:17). Yahshua being the ‘go`el’ hence the ‘Lamb’ of/for Yah. This is where Abraham receives the Melkizedeq mantle thru this covenant exchange.

Gen.17 – The 1st command of Melkizedeq ‘physical circumcision’ – the entry sign/token to the covenants. These covenants Gen.15 (including 17) and Ex.19 were broken by the ‘Gold Calf’ at Ex.32 (Jer.31:31-33).

Ex.19:5 thru 24:8 is the ‘Book of the Covenant’ it is the ‘answer’ (Gal.3:17) to the Gen.15 ‘Promise’. It concluded with a ‘Covenant Confirming Meal’ (Ex.24:9-11). It started by giving the Melkizedeq Priesthood to the entire Israelite nation ‘if’ they kept the Covenant. They did not;

Ex.32 is the ‘Gold Calf’ Covenant break issue that thrust all of Israel into being a nation ‘with’ Levitical Priests instead of the original nation ‘of’ Melkizedeq Priests. This situation ran concurrent till the Death and Resurrection of Yahshua. Ex.32 is also the point at which the entire Israelite nation stopped circumcising anyone (Jos.5:5) for 40yrs till they entered the land.

This ushers in the Levitical ‘Book of the Law’ (Heb.7:11) retroactive to Ex.24:12 (post Covenant ratification – Ex.24:7-8 / Gal.3:15) thru Dt,31:26. This ran concurrent till the time of Yahshua’s crucifixion death. However it is still promulgated (even today) by those (who are many) that do not agree with Heb.7:12, etc.

Jos.5:2 –  The 2nd command of Levitical ‘physical circumcision’; after a 40+yr. lapse from Ex.32. Rendering all ‘physical circumcision’ from that point on (including today) ‘Levitical’.  The only circumcision to remain is ‘circumcision of the heart’ which is Melkizedeq (Heb.7:3)

The Jer.31:31-33 prophesy of the New Covenant (Ezk.36:26-27) which is Melkizedeq; confirmed at Heb.8:8-10 and blood ratified at Mt.26:28, Mk.14:24, Lk.22:20, etc. on Passover. Reconnecting with Ex.12 the only Melkizedeq Passover in the entire Bible till Yahshua’s Death.

Yahshua’s Passover crucifixion Death – Freeing Him from the constraints of Levitical Law – Examples include; He was crucified naked; His tzitzits were removed ie (same as cut-off – Rom.7:1) – He is now free to be the Melkizedeq High Priest and restore the Melkizedeq Priesthood (1Pt.2:9/Heb.7:12). The Levitical Law reverts back to the original Melkizedeq Law and with it ‘circumcision of the heart’.

Leading to the future Mow`edim/Appointed Time of the yet future Marriage of the Lamb to His Bride – Israel *and* the much hailed ‘Marriage Supper of the Lamb’ the ultimate Covenant Confirming Meal (Ex.24:9-11/Lk.22:20/Rev.19:7; 9).

  1. Dr. Perry,
    Concerning the Sabbatical Year, it seems that would be something we would keep under the Melchizedek and if so how would that work and what would that look like? I was looking in the Back to the Melchizedek Future book and I don’t see it addressed. Thanks in advance.

  2. The Sabbatical Year (and Jubilee) have to do with “the land” – anything but the borders of Israel are not “the land” that Abraham walked – Gen 15:18 (Ex 23:31; Num 34:13)

  3. “Gen.15 – The Promise Guarantee Covenant. Made *with* Abraham and his descendants. This covenant was conditional (ie breakable)….”
    That statement is not true, for it was only Yah who walked between the animals to seal the “promise.” It was not conditional upon Abraham doing anything; it was a unilateral promise, one from Yah to Abraham. Gen. 15:13 “…He said to Aḇram, “Know for certain….” 15:17 “And it came to be, when the sun went down and it was dark, that see, a smoking oven and a burning torch passing between those pieces.” Only Yah passed through. Gen. 15:18 “I have given this land to your seed….” And Yah “remembers” His promise always. Psalm 105:42-43 “For He remembered His set-apart word With Abraham His servant; And He brought forth His people with joy, His chosen ones with a joyful shout.” Gen 12:7 “To your seed I give this land.” Yah’s promise is not breakable. Our merciful El will forgive His wayward nation: Jer. 3:1 “Yet return to Me,” says YHWH.” 2 Chron. 20:7 “Are You not our Elohim? You have driven out the inhabitants of this land before Your people Yisra’ĕl, and gave it to the seed of Aḇraham Your friend forever.” Genesis 13:15 “All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever.” Numbers 23:19 “Ěl is not a man, to lie; nor a son of man, to repent! Has He said, and would He not do it; or spoken, and would not confirm it? Written respectfully. Shalom.

    • Only Yah passed through ???

      15:17 “And it came to be, when the sun went down and it was dark, that see, a smoking oven **and** a burning torch passing between those pieces.”

      Yahshua was standing in for Abraham and his descendants – See Jn.8:58

      Does nothing against the ‘I have/will …’ verses you site

      And what you miss ‘Yahshua standing in for Abraham and his descendants’ in this Covenant is the exact reason why Yahshua is the Covenant Go`el Kinsmen Redeemer.

      • When Yah made His covenant with Moshe, similar words are used as the words used when He made the covenant with Abraham. Instead of, as with Abraham where He appeared as a smoking oven AND a burning torch, He appeared with Moshe as “Mount Sinai was in smoke, all of it, because יהוה descended upon it in fire. And its smoke went up like the smoke of a furnace, and all the mountain trembled exceedingly.” Same smoke caused by the same fire, except the word “and” is not used; the “and” being the justification to claim it is Yahwsha. But with Moshe, we can see it is all just Yah, clearing away the misconception of what the “and” means during the covenant with Abraham.

        Go’el – are you saying Yahwsha was acting as an avenger and redeemer for Abraham? If so, for what purpose was he redeeming and avenging Abraham? What rights did Abraham lose and what wrongs were associated with Abraham so that this go’el act was needed to be Abraham’s stead during the time of making a unilateral promise covenant of the land and becoming a nation?

        “(go’el) is a Hebrew term which comes from the word lig’ol (“to redeem”), hence meaning “redeemer”, which in the Bible and the rabbinical tradition denotes a person who as the nearest relative of another is charged with the duty of restoring the rights of another and avenging his wrongs.”

        Thank you for being kind in answering previously and for taking the time to read my response.

      • Deut 5:1-5 “And Mosheh called all Yisra’ĕl, and said to them, “Hear, O Yisra’ĕl, the laws and right-rulings which I speak in your hearing today. And you shall learn them, and guard to do them. יהוה our Elohim made a covenant with us in Ḥorĕḇ. יהוה did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us, those who are here today, all of us who are alive. יהוה SPOKE with you face to face on the mountain FROM THE MIDST OF THE FIRE. I stood between יהוה and you at that time, to declare to you the WORD of יהוה – for you were afraid because of the fire, and you did not go up the mountain – saying:..” Does that verse say Yah spoke with Yisra’el from the midst of Yahwsha or through the midst of His own fire?
        Thank you again for your time in reading my response.
