If the furthest point from Yahweh and everything that pertains to Him; His Word, His Commandments, His Covenant ‘not my will but thine’ is the waywardness of a ‘do as you will’ Satanic haSatan. Then outright Satanism controlled by haSatan would be that opposite polarized position.

John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Would there be any doubt that this statement only leaves room for ‘ONE WAY’? Among all the New Testament Believing Churches and Assemblies, among all the wranglings and arguments, there would (or should) be no descent that the crucified Messiah is that ‘ONE WAY’. If we drew a vertical 360o (degree) circle on the wall with TDC (top dead center) being that ‘ONE WAY’, that would mean that all other 359o’s of that circle would be Satan’s territory. Satan does not care if you turn right or left, up or down or side to side, just as long as you do. Just as long as you do not find or fully follow; integrating that ‘ONE WAY’, He doesn’t really have a care how close you get, until you find that ‘ONE WAY’.

Dt.5:32 “Ye shall observe to do therefore as YHWH your Elohim hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left”

We are to be on a straight & narrow path – Neither turning to the right or the left – We must be aware that there is a Christian Church ditch on one side and a Rabbinic Jewish ditch on the other. We must also be aware that haSatan controls, influences and asserts both respective ditches respectively – & at times even playing them one against the other and showcasing all this to believers and to non-believers and atheists to entice the believer to become a non-believer or better yet an atheist.

2Cor.11:14 “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works”.

Still within the 359o of haSatan’s territory; 1 level away from outright Voo-Doo & Satanizm is Wicca, 1 level away from Wicca is Atheist, 1 level away from Atheist is Paganizm, 1 level away from Paganizm is un or non Belief, 1 level away from non Belief is Catholicism, 1 level away from Catholicism is Protestantism – then it branches out from there; Name & Claim, Speak in Tongues, Slay in the Spirit, Snake Handlers, Scientology, Mormonism, Jehovah Witness and on & on. And this is the non-Covenant keeping (inclusive of Sabbath & Feastdays) religio/church baggage many nonetheless validate and drag along (including ‘Messianic’ Pastors-Rabbis-Leaders) and inject into the various Messianic (Judaism & Israel), Hebrew Roots, Netzarim Israel, One New Man, etc. Assemblies.

On the Jewish side, the 613 laws a good many of which do not faithfully track Torah, the Jerusalem and Babylonian Talmud that mostly do not faithfully track the Torah, the Tale of ‘Oral Torah’ (Dt.31:24), The Num.3:12 commandment not followed in the 613 laws by Rabbis that does not validate Rabbis; forming an unscriptural Pharisaic/Rabbinic Priesthood subsequently followed by Catholics for an unscriptural Catholic Priesthood, etc. – Bringing back several other pollutions from Babylonian captivity (including this 1) still employed to this day, and more issues with volumes upon volumes to prove it – Talmud, Mishnah, Gamera, Gamatria, Kabbalah, Avot, etc.

With Believers (inclusive of Christians that neither follow what ‘Christ’ / [Yahshua] did or said – Mt.7:13-*23), Atheists, NonBelievers and Anti/Counter Missionaries on all sides pointing fingers, jeering & quipping at all sides of this birds-nest conundrum (confused situation), but neither being aware enough or honest enough to the physical facts to investigate the truth of Yah’s Word.

Ps 14:1 ‘A fool says … there is no God’ – and 2Cor.3:14-15 says ‘a vail’ remains over their mind and the reading of the Old Testament/Original Covenant who do not accept (inclusive of claiming then not following) Yahshua – these remain at best ‘blind guides’. Both positions are error and cannot be envied with emulation being avoided.

This is the main reason why all these groups hold on to a Levitically based mindset and either outright reject the Melkizedeq return with its Laws, Covenants and its Priesthood or will just passively not research or investigate; let alone accept or implement.

A View Protected

Discernment is not simply differentiating between right and wrong; but includes the awareness to know the difference between right and almost right. (Adapted from ~ C.H. Spurgeon)

There seems to be an enormous segment of the Jewish/Messianic Netzarim/Israel even Christian societies that ignore a truth presented in favor of the not quite right; even direct error held as absolute truth. Whether called Confirmation Bias, Cognitive Dissonance or Belief Perseverance it is the Passive Aggressive form of outright aggression aimed at anything that threatens ‘A View Protected’.

Ever wonder why others resist the Truth? And ‘ban’ others without the due process of investigation?

“It’s not what we don’t know that gets us into trouble – its what we know for sure; that just ain’t so” – Mark Twain

“The Lies We Tell Ourselves – Cognitive-dissonance is just one of many biases that work in our everyday lives. We don’t like to believe that we may be wrong, so we may limit our intake of new information or thinking about things in ways that don’t fit within our pre-existing beliefs. Psychologists call this “confirmation bias.”

We also don’t like to second-guess our choices, even if later they are proven wrong or unwise. By second-guessing ourselves, we suggest we may not be as wise or as right as we’ve led ourselves to believe. This may lead us to commit to a particular course of action and become insensitive to and reject alternative, perhaps better, courses that come to light. That’s why many people seek to avoid or minimize regret in their lives, and seek “closure” — imposing a definitive end to an event or relationship. It reduces the possibility of future cognitive dissonance.”

Dissonance has several meanings, all related to conflict or incongruity:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dissonance

Dissonance – lack of agreement; especially : inconsistency between the **beliefs** one holds or between one’s actions and one’s beliefs

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/dissonance

Cognitive Dissonance focuses on how humans strive for internal consistency. When inconsistency (dissonance) is experienced, individuals largely become psychologically distressed.

1] “The existence of dissonance, being psychologically uncomfortable, will motivate the person to try to reduce the dissonance and achieve consonance”

(Be it severing contact, discussion or relationship via various means avoidance, silence, ignoring, hiding, distance, banning, court order, etc.)

dissonance ie inconsistency / consonance ie agreement

2] “When dissonance is present, in addition to trying to reduce it, the person will actively avoid situations and **information** (including Truthful) which would likely increase the dissonance”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cognitive_dissonance

Very much like Belief Perseverance

“Belief perseverance is the tendency to cling to ideas even when confronted with evidence to the contrary. This resistance might cause people to hold onto any sort of belief or opinion when the belief is shown to be unfounded or has even proved to be completely untrue. In some cases, this delusion can provide the self-belief needed to face new challenges, but belief perseverance also can prevent the honest appraisal needed for making good decisions. (Not to mention honest/correct truthful choices).

Research into belief perseverance has identified three categories of belief that might be involved. Self-impressions might understate or overstate actual qualities or abilities in the individual. Social impressions relate to specific individuals and qualities these people possess. Naive theories are impressions of the way the world works, including social groups and stereotypes, **religious tenets**, home remedies and expectations of the future”.

http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-belief-perseverance.htm

“Once we have decided that we believe something, we will tend to keep on believing it, even in the face of disconfirming evidence. **Particularly if other people know of our belief, it can be embarrassing to climb down from our previous assertions**.

**It is also difficult to remove a belief which has been woven into a wider web of belief, without disturbing those other beliefs**”.

http://changingminds.org/explanations/theories/belief_perseverance.htm

Let’s be clear – this includes many issues including the honest humility needed to study and verify the validation of the New Covenant Melkizedeq standing and the Melkizedeq Priesthood renewal and primacy (Heb.7:11-12)

Particularly egregious (very bad and easily noticed) for 1 identifying as a ‘believer’ – this showcases an unwillingness to be humble and repent embracing better or more complete truth; even worse a willingness to defend, and at that by any means. (See – https://torahwithoutrabbinics.wordpress.com/2014/12/23/i-doh-wanna/)

“It’s easier to fool the people than to convince them that they have been fooled” —
Mark Twain

Acts 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all **readiness of mind**, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

A ‘ready’ mind is not a closed/calcified mind. Rather than to defend and dis-fellowship; Acts 17:11 is the model all ‘believers’ are called to. Similar to 2Tim.2:15

You have a choice – Do you want to appear right or Do you want to be right? To be right requires Effort, Acceptance and Honest Humility.

Choose Wisely Jos.24:15

The Sinai Transition

The Sinai Transition

I have been repeatedly asked in different ways on different topics – Where does [X, Y & Z] fit in with the Melkizedeq Book of the Covenant setting since there were instructions to [build, make or observe] given after the Covenant blood ratification & meal but before the Ex.32 breach of the golden calf that brought the Levitical Priesthood and its added laws?

This is a fair, thoughtful and logical question; one that must be asked; one that must be systematically answered – I have included all of these answers in several replies and in various articles but never as an article unto itself.

This period of time Between Ex.24:12 and Ex.32:1 and following turns out to be transitional because of the Melchizedek Covenant breach and includes many issues – Tabernacle, Tabernacle items, Ark of the Covenant, Aaron and Sons to be and lead a Melchizedek Priesthood – but became and lead a Levitical Priesthood instead (Num.3:12; 8:15-17), Issues that included the Priests to *eat* the Atonement, Vestiges for only Aaron and Sons commandeered by the Jews to legitimize the wearing of kippah’s, instating of Rabbis, etc.

The first thing we have to understand – The setting of the Exodus Book of the Covenant (Ex.19:5-24:8) was the last time Moses ever saw a Melchizedek Israel keeping the Melchizedek Covenant. For after promising to keep the Covenant – Moses goes up the Mountain – 40 days later Israel makes the Golden Calf (Ex.32); breaks the Covenant, defiles themselves and is no longer eligible (Ex.19:5-6) to be that Melchizedek Priesthood (this included Aaron and his sons). So – Moses started up with a Melchizedek intent -but- came down to a Levitical reality (Num.3:12; 8:13-17). This ineligibility reigned for the next 15 centuries in the form of the Levitical Priesthood till Yahshua’s death and resurrection, – releasing Him (Rom.7:1/Gal.4:4) from the law  (Levitical Law Heb.7:11-15) to be – the Melchizedek High Priest (Heb.2:17; 3:1; 4:14-15; 5:5, 10; 6:20; 7:26; 8:1; 9:11; 10:21).

To make my point – I must ask the question; ‘in Hebrew thought, when does life begin? – at Birth or Conception?’ Conception – right? Ex.24:12 is the conception point of the ‘Law’ (post-covenant Ex.24:7-8) that brought the Levitical Priesthood that the people had no idea about until Moses came down the mountain, but by then they had already breached the Covenant with the Golden Calf (Ex.32), and were now under the Levitical priesthood provision. Israel no longer would be; because of their own covenant breach, a nation **of** (Melchizedek) priests (Ex.19:5-6); They would now (post covenant breach) be a nation **with** Levite priests (Inclusive of Aaron and Sons – Ex.40:13-15/Num.3:12/8:16-19) – the Levitical Priesthood was born.

The setting of the Exodus Book of the Covenant (Ex.19:5-24:8) was the last time Moses ever saw a Melchizedek Israel keeping the Melchizedek Covenant (Yahweh’s Plan ‘A’). For after promising to keep the Covenant – Moses goes up the Mountain – 40 days later Israel makes the Golden Calf (Ex.32); breaks the Covenant, defiles themselves and is no longer eligible to be that ‘Firstborn’ Melchizedek Priesthood (including Aaron and his sons). So – Moses started up Mt. Sinai with a Melchizedek intent -but- came down to a Levitical reality (Num.3:12). This ineligibility reigned for the next 15 centuries in the form of the Levitical Priesthood (and the category of Levitical Law Heb.7:11-15) till Yahshua’s death and resurrection, – releasing Him (Rom.7:1/Gal.4:4) from the Levitical law of Torah that no-one but a Levite could be Priest (and other issues as well) to be – the Melchizedek High Priest (Heb.2:17; 3:1; 4:14-15; 5:5, 10; 6:20; 7:26; 8:1; 9:11; 10:21). See the book – Back to the Melchizedek Future

Num 3:12 And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel **instead** of all the firstborn that openeth the matrix among the children of Israel: therefore the Levites shall be mine;

**instead** a ‘change’ in Torah – **until** (Gen.49:10) an awareness of coming ‘change’ in Torah – Jos.5:5 evidences an unannounced ‘change’ in Torah (Ezk.20:24-25, Heb.7:11-12, 2Cor.3:11, etc.) evidences and confirms the ‘change’ in Torah.

Now put on your thinking caps; What gave YHWH the right to change the Covenant? What gave YHWH the right to change the deal? What could have happened so bad as to implement this ‘Change’?

It was Israel’s Covenant Break disobedience of Ex.32. YHWH’s 1st choice to punish Israel’s breach was to wipe them all out! Annihilate ALL Israel and start over with Moses (Ex.32:10). This included Aaron (who made the Gold Calf then lied about it) AND his son’s. What in All of Torah could be worse?

They ALL (except Moses) lost their Melkizedeq standing – They All almost lost their lives – They All were remanded to a Levitical Priesthood – A huge difference in being a nation ‘of’ priests and a nation ‘with’ priests.

There would be other Levitical concessions, additions (Gal.3:19) & so-named Covenants (not a covenant/s of ‘promise’ – Eph.2:12) that followed starting with Ex.34 but these would all be under Yah’s Plan ‘B’ breach patch Levitical Priesthood; which was ‘glorious’ – certainly much better than complete annihilation (Ex.32:10).
See the book – The Covenants of Promise.

2Cor 3:11 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious. (Note there is a positive & a negative side of ‘remain’ and even a side that was never involved both Jewish and Christian) – See;
https://torahwithoutrabbinics.wordpress.com/2014/12/30/remain/

YHWH does have to keep His Word (even the parts we are not aware of – that’s why we can trust Him) – BUT – He does Not have to honor a broken Covenant – Especially 1 that came with a ‘prepackaged’ agreed to proviso (Ex.19:5-6) in the word ‘if’.

The foregoing are excerpts on this topic – I hope this completely answers this question
