Melkizedeq for Dummies
A Beginners Nut-Shell Guide to the Melkizedeq Priesthood
We need to develop fully equipped Melkizedeq disciples instead of a version of ill-equipped ‘ain’ts’.
1st of all Melkizedeq from – Gen.14:18, Gen.49:10, Ps.110:1; 4, Heb.7:11-12; *21, etc. – Yahshua is our High Priest after the ‘Order of Melkizedeq’
Rom.10:2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of ‘God’, but not according to knowledge. 3 For they being ignorant of Yah’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of Yah.
All of us are to go on to Yah’s Spiritual Maturity; (Note, these are Yahshua’s words)
Mt 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of Yah, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
A good place to start is Ex.23 compatible to Lev.23
Remember a version of Truth (Christian, Messianic, Jewish or Anti-Missionary) at best is a counterfeit. We need to search for & ‘rightly divide’ the Truth, lose the errors and trash the lies; Acts 17:11
Did you notice the 2 phrases? – ‘the righteousness of Yah’, ‘the kingdom of Yah, and his righteousness’. ‘kingdom’ in Hebrew is ‘Malakah’, YHWH is the King or ‘Melek’ and ‘righteousness’ is ‘Zedek or in other words in Hebrew – Melkizedeq
We are being called back into Yah’s Plan ‘A’ 1st choice Melkizedeq Priesthood
1Ptr.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: (Compare to Ex.19:5-6)
This is our 1st, Best & only choice! – (Heb.7:11-12);
Notice ‘a *royal* priesthood’ or a Kingly/Melek Priesthood ie the Melkizedeq Priesthood.
Remember Yahshua was a Jew and like most of Israel & all of us (converts) could never be a Levitical Priest from the Tribe of Levi (includes Aaron Sons)
Heb 5:13 For every one that uses milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Most want spoon-fed Theology. They want their meat cut up for them / some even pre-chewed – They would rather be told what to believe – they love their milk and their error coated truth-sickle with rainbow lie sprinkles on top.
Actually do the work – Ask your questions – BUT; follow-through
The Melkizedeq Portion of Torah simply is Gen.1:1 thru Ex.24:8-11 – What is not so simple is what the people need to do; put in the time – Go thru all the Levitical stuff (Ex.24:12 thru Dt.31:26) and onward into the New Testament.
Then compare the different Levitical values against the original Melkizedeq to assess their continued viability (Acts 15:10, 2Cor.3:11-*13)
There is just way too much to try to itemize that narrative for anyone

Shalom and May the burning desire to know Yah’s Truth be Yours.
