Melkizedeq Attack III
Rico explains——- Shalom, YES I am aware of this teaching and it is an old position of the adventist church which I know very well. The people teaching this may not be aware of what is called Covenant Renewals in the Ancient Near East. That would explain why there was two stone tablets and why moses put the book of the law in front of the ark. But, they are seriously confusing people that do not study the temple service. The bible says that “the gifts of God are without repentance” that is called a Grant Covenant and in the ancient world once a king gave a gift not even the king could take away the gift. In the Scriptures we find that the PRIESTHOOD, THE LAND, AND THE KINGSHIP WERE GRANT COVENANTS AND COVENANTS OF SALT. Clearly, those teaching this have no idea of what a challenge to the name, authority of God they are committing.
My Assessment; Rico is trying to bamboozle the befuddled – those who don’t know; that would have never asked or known to ask the proper questions in the 1st place.
But I Have!
DrDave answers – Rico Cortes says @ ‘it is an old position of the adventist church’
– Really ??? – I’ve spoken to High & Low Profile SDA Pastors – The SDA Dean of Schools – Dr. Terry Swenson; Chaplin of the SDA Loma Linda University – Mark Finley of ‘It is Written’ – Doug Bachelor of ‘Amazing Facts’ & others – They; not 1 of them had any Idea what the Book of the Covenant was or where to find it – Some even asking if that was even in the Bible – Sad!
Rico Cortes says @ ‘The bible says that “the gifts of God are without repentance”‘
Unless previously qualified saying ‘IF’ – (Ex.19:5-6) example Num.3:12 / 8:15-18
Rico Cortes says @ Covenant Renewals
??? – such as Ex.32:10 annihilation? Or the Fact that Ex.34 did Not renew circumcision for 40yrs as per Jos.5:5 but had to be re-commanded again at Jos.5:2 or renew the Melchizedeq Priesthood as per Num.3:12 ever again until Yahshua. Showing a broken Covenant and a broken Covenant sign – circumcision – ???
Rico Cortes says @ that is called a Grant Covenant and in the ancient world once a king gave a gift not even the king could take away the gift.
Unless the Covenant was broken – Not even YHWH has to honor a broken Covenant! (Jer.31:31-33)
Rico Cortes says @ Clearly, those teaching this have no idea of what a challenge to the name, authority of God they are committing.
And ??? – Rico Cortes speaks of ‘salt ratification’ BUT – Abraham’s guarantee Covenant (Gen.15), the Book of the Covenant, the Melkizedeq Priesthood, THE LAND were originally ratified by blood; this is misleading!
Rico – Clearly you teach a Levitical Mindset that even the Jews, Rabbis, etc., Anti-Missionaries let alone Messianics including You; do not strictly or fully keep – and yet you go on to stubble those that find the Melkizedeq Priesthood?
You repeatedly demonstrate that you have no idea of what a challenge to the Name, Authority, Authorship & Jurisdiction of YHWH and His Melkizedeq Priesthood under Yahshua you are committing.
Rico – You do have some good things – But your Levitical/Aaronic focus leads you to disregard what is plainly there and this you export/teach to others.
