A Melkizedeq Service
I am responding to a request to summarize what a Melkizedeq service would/should look like
This is not a exhaustive list but would include but not limited to;
Certainly there would be Torah and Gospel readings, sermons and teachings based on such (Acts 15:19-21), prayers and music/song – no doubt Davidic dancing. There would be opportunity to give – altho it would not be called ‘tithe’ – The model of Melkizedeq tithe is Gen.14 / Heb.7 – 1 time from the net and not limited to 10%, $, Talent, etc.
The rest would include
#1 YHWH’s Name written by Moses ignored by Orthodox, Rabbis, etc. and Rabbinic types for ‘Adonai’ everywhere. – This includes the ‘Shama’ Dt.6:4, Aaronic Prayer Num.6:22-27, Com’dt #3 Ex.20:7, etc.
#2 We would not use LORD/Lord, God, Jesus, etc. (Including Adonai, Ha Shem, etc.) in place of /instead of His Name/His Son’s Name
#3 Kippah’s by Torah were for Aaron’s Son’s only – not even for all the tribe of Levi (Ex 28:40) – Certainly Not for the Jews or anyone else – First Fruit Melkizedeq Priests would Not be wearing such.
#4 Tzitzits – Are a Levitical Priesthood mandate given at Num.15:38 – Well after the breach of the Gold Calf at Ex.32 – Num.3:12 hearkens back to the breach of the Gold Calf at Ex.32 (see v:10).
#5 Prayer Shawls – I cannot exclude them from being before the advent of the Levitical Priesthood – Abraham most probably wore one – Abraham was definitely in the original Melkizedeq Priesthood
#6 Circumcision – Of the Heart Only – Modern day adherents to Physical Circumcision think they are being obedient to Gen.17 – But they are actually being obedient to Jos.5:2 on the authority of Jos.5:5 which is Levitical Priesthood hearkening back to the breach of the Gold Calf (the breaking of the Book of the Covenant) at Ex.32
#7 Oneg 😉 – We would still be eating clean meats – Gen.7:2
#8 We will still be keeping Shabbat, New Moons, Annual Mowedims and Annual Sabbaths
#9 Baptizm – In the Father’s and Son’s actual Name including the Set-Apart Spirit.
#10 We would extend true friendship & hospitality especially preferring one another
#11 We would actually keep the Great Commission – Learning the Evangelistic protocol style the ‘Way of the Master’ BUT bring it to its logical Covenant conclusion to include Shabbat and the Feasts.
#12 We would be testing All things (and everything else) by Torah/Scripture to see if it was so (Acts 17:11)
