Why Melkizedeq?

Why Melkizedeq?

It has been suggested that I am giving Melkizedeq answers to those that are not even aware of a Melkizedeq reason for; and therefore have not formulated any Melkizedeq questions based on said unawareness of non-exposure.

To be sure there is a huge segment of Christian and even Messianic Society that do not read their Bibles; and or at that in any meaningful researching way. Oh – Yes; they do have programs to read the Bible in a year or even 90 days. But that kind of breakneck speed-read will not produce the applied in-depth studied research needed to ‘search the scriptures daily to see if these things are so’ (Acts 17:11). There is that chance that the more astute may look deeper; but not so the vast majority.

I am certain that haSatan gets a big belly laugh at that situation. That kind of ‘topical skim’ lends itself to the ‘spiritual schizophrenic’ situation that is mold-able by both the Christian Church and the Messianic Assembly alike further extending to Rabbinic and Orthodoxy. By way of explanation;

There are a variety of sources to consider; everything from scholars to biblical commentary to religious clergy on both sides of the Gentile-Jewish line. Pastors, Priests, Ministers, Reverends, Bible Teachers and Rabbis are all taught in their respective ways that they teach to subsequent audiences including those that will become future Pastors, Priests, Ministers, Reverends, Bible Teachers and Rabbis. They all draw from their respective material they have previously learned from and are (or will be) drawn to. These future selections will for the most part agree with what was previously learned. This is a self-feeding situation that has produced what we have the most of; a ‘believer base’ of the spiritually ‘schizophrenic’. By way of quick definition a ‘schizophrenic’ can physically appear normal, but a ‘schizophrenic’ operates in a perception of a perceived reality that is not actual reality.

In much the same way a ‘spiritual schizophrenic’ can have a certain view or selected religious views that are not based in or track biblical reality. Many times this view is taught and continually reinforced to the point that ‘normal’ religious understandings (accepted Church/Messianic populous norms) do not even agree with what the Messiah actually did and at some few points what He actually said. Unless there is an honest will to think individually for ourselves; we can be (have been and will be) taught to make erroneous (including random) associations either redirecting what we read from the Bible or outright disregarding what is plainly there. Those that are versed in and teach wilderness preparedness will tell their students that there are two main reasons why people get and stay lost; 1] No remembered awareness and 2] Disregarding those things that would indicate direction. It is the very same biblically.

To the point; Why Melkizedeq? – Those that have read the NT Book of Hebrews have to be aware that 9x’s Yahshua is ID’d as our Melkizedeq High Priest; confirmed by Ps.110. Hebrews 7:11-12 deals with the ‘Rightly Dividing’ point of 2Tm.2:15. Initially IDing the difference division between Levitical and Melkizedeq concerns. Now if Yahshua is our Melkizedeq High Priest and we by 1Ptr.2:9 are being called into that Priesthood; it would become of paramount importance to understand and know what that Melkizedeq Priesthood is all about. After all if Yahshua is going to be our Melkizedeq High Priest; that presupposes that He will have to have Melkizedeq lower Priests to be Higher than (Rev.1:6; 5:10).

It would be helpful to know that there was a Priesthood before the Levitical – in was the Melkizedeq (Gen.14:18) Priesthood. The Sinai Book of the Covenant (Ex.19:5 thru 24:8-11) was a Melkizedeq Priesthood Covenant that promised the Melkizedeq Priesthood ‘if’ they (all Israel) would keep the Covenant (Ex.19:5-6). They did not. Yahweh was to destroy all Israel (Ex.32:10), but Moses pleaded, tho Yahweh relented He put them under a Levitical Priesthood – the Levitical Priesthood was born (Num.3:12). A huge difference between being a nation ‘of’ priests and being a nation ‘with’ priests.

Yahweh said He added laws that were ‘not’ good; whereby they should ‘not’ live (Ezk.20:24-25 compare to 20:11 & :21). To confirm that; Acts 15:10 clearly states that there was a ‘yoke’ that neither they (the Israelites) nor our fathers were ‘able to bear’. To further confirm that same point Gal.3:19 speaks of ‘laws’ that were ‘added’. To the ‘law’? No; in addition to/along side the Covenant (Gal.3:18).

To contrast that point Yahshua our Melkizedeq High Priest said at;

Mt.11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. – And He also said;

Mt.6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of Yah, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

You may want to know that in Hebrew – kingdom is Melkuth – Yah is the King or Melek – and His righteousness is Zedeq – In other words we are to seek 1st the Melkizedeq Kingdom of Yahweh AND His Melkizedeq righteousness.

The Melkizedeq Priesthood (Covenant & Law) is Not the ‘No Law’ free-skate of the Christian Church – BUT – neither is it a Levitical ‘All Law’ (including “’not’ good”) anchor drag. Not to mention the ‘Oral’ and added nonsense of Rabbinic and Orthodox Judaism (et. al) that denies Yahshua as Mashiyach.

If you cannot count to 1, if this is not reason enough, all the other points you should know as well about the division of Priesthood, Laws, Covenants, Circumcision, etc. will not profit you anything.

Hebrews Thru Melkizedeq Eyes 3

Hebrews Thru Melkizedeq Eyes 3

Heb 9:1 Then verily the first covenant had *also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary
Indicating heavily that the 2nd does ‘also’.

Heb 9:8 The [Set-Apart Spirit] signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: – That Yahshua forged

Heb 9:10 Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation <diorthosis> .

1357. diorywsiv diorthosis, dee-or’-tho-sis

from a compound of 1223 and a derivative of 3717, meaning to straighten thoroughly; rectification, i.e. (specially) the Messianic restauration:–reformation. – *Gen.49:10

Heb 9:11 But [Yahshua] being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

Heb 9:14 How much more shall the blood of [Yahshua], who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to [Yah], purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living [Yah]? 15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. 16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.

Heb 9:17 For a testament <diatheke>/ (covenant) is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.

Testator – <diatithemai> 1303. diatiyemai diatithemai, dee-at-ith’-em-ahee – middle voice from; to put apart, i.e. (figuratively) dispose (by assignment, compact, or bequest):–appoint, make, testator.

This is 1 that the translators got wrong; proof is Torah backing up v:18 Yes the ‘appointed’ sacrifice had to die – a lamb, bull or goat -But- There is not 1 biblical covenant where a man had to die – Except for Yahshua – And what most don’t realize He accepted to be that Go`el ‘Kinsmen Redeemer’ Sacrifice back at Gen.15:17 standing in the ‘death position for Abraham & descendants. He did so at the Cross.

Marriage is also a Covenant – It would defeat the purpose if either the Bride or Groom had to die.

18 Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood.

Yes of oxen/bulls Ex 24:5

19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the (Melkizedeq Covenant) law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, (Ex.12/Lev.14)

20 Saying, This is the blood of the testament / (covenant) which Yah hath enjoined unto you.

Ex 24:7-8

Heb 9:21 Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.

22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

This footnote’s to Lev. 17:11 but goes back much further – Gen.3:21, Gen 9:4, Gen.15; Gen.22

23 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For [Yahshua] is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of [Yah] for us:

25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others (animals); 26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now 1ce in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 28 So [Yahshua] was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Dropped the Ball

Dropped the Ball

Just like it is apparent that our history scholars and academics pick and chose what they will cover, present and support; regardless of the proof. Just like our medical providers would rather ‘manage’ – Cut, Poison or Burn disease selling pharmakia instead of cure it or at least give us the whole story. Just like we are made aware of the news the news-folk choose to cover in the way they choose to cover it.

We have scholars, academics and teachers on all sides of the Bible, on all sides of the Torah – From Sunday Church to Sabbath Church, From Messianic (et. al) to Anti-Missionaries to Jewish/Rabbinic (et. al). That from where I stand; have completely dropped the ball and at that for centuries; which certainly includes all my life on some issues in Torah and that includes what can be known of the Melkizedeq ‘rightly dividing’ point (2Tim.2:15) with its issues both Covenant, Law and Priesthood.

Myth #1 – The Law (including Torah) cannot be divided.

To believe & assert this; as the Jews have done for centuries, and have effectively exported to all other groups. The Jews and the others have to ignore Gen.49:10 – the Torah prepackaged awareness of impending ‘change’. Ignoring the fact that – It is not a change ‘of’ Torah to enact the change ‘in’ Torah; that has always been ‘in’ Torah, pre-stated ‘in’ Torah (Amos 3:7).

Further ‘they’ (et. al) have to be ignorant of or completely willful against what Yahweh has said in TaNaK at Ezk.20:10-25, where He lines out that He gave His Melkizedeq Covenant Commandments, Judgments and Statutes that ‘they’ the Sinai Israelites of Torah would not keep; therefore He gave them ‘also’ (in Torah) Levitical Judgments and Statutes that were ‘not good’ whereby they should ‘not live’ (Ezk.20:25). And this contrasted against Ezk.20:11; for Melkizedeq Covenant keeping.

This ‘not good’ speaks of the Torah ‘Gold Calf’ Covenant break incident of Ex.32, where YHWH was going to wipe them all out (v:10); but relented because of Moses. This is where they; 1] lost their Melkizedeq standing (Ex.19:5-6 ‘if’), 2] were remanded to the Levitical Priesthood – a huge difference between being a nation ‘of’ Melkizedeq priests and being a nation ‘with’ Levitical priests, 3] This is where the Israelites stopped circumcising anyone for the rest of Torah as evidenced by Jos.5:5.

Yes; you can say that Yahweh’s ‘not good’ Plan ‘B’ Levitical Priesthood was ‘glorious’ (2Cor.3:11) – It was His way to preserve disobedient Israel – certainly better than complete annihilation (Ex.32:10).

Myth #2 – Physical Circumcision today answers to Gen.17

Gen.17 is under the Melkizedeq Priesthood, it was the Physical Circumcision needed at that time to be in Covenant BUT the Israelites broke the Covenant at Ex.32; now there was no reason to Circumcise. That point is made at Rom.2:25 – This ran concurrent thru the remainder of Torah into Jos.5:2

As stated Jos.5:5 is the awareness point of un-Circumcision that lasted 40+yrs (the rest of Torah) into Jos.5:2 from the Covenant break of Ex.32. Jos.5:2 is after the Covenant break of Ex.32 and the subsequent Levitical Priesthood that followed (Num.3:12); meaning that the 2nd Command to Circumcise came under the Levitical Priesthood (Heb.7:11) and so it is to this day.

So to state this clearly; those today that will Physically Circumcise no matter what Hoo-Haa is being told them, thinking they are being obedient to Gen.17 are actually being obedient to Jos.5:2 under the Levitical Priesthood, with a break span of 40+yrs to settle & make the point.

Myth #3 – And following; I realize the conundrum this presents

Agreeing to Physically Circumcise their 8 day old males – but did not. Getting the Num.15:38 Command to wear tzitzits attesting to keep the law while this nation is becoming more un-Circumcised. Receiving all the Book of the Law added laws while un-Circumcised. Receiving the finished Book of the Law (Dt.31:26) while un-Circumcised. Receiving Manna, Clothes & Shoes that did not wear out, Yah’s edict to circumcise the heart, Spying out the land, The parting of the Jordan River, Spying out Jericho, Receiving Yah’s Grace, Favor and Miracles, etc. prior to being Circumcised at Jos.5:2.

Isn’t it odd that no one knows (including the Jews) that ‘Heart Circumcision’ – the New Testament Circumcision standard (Rom.2:29); was 1st mentioned at Lev.26:41; then at Dt.10:16 & 30:6 in Torah during the 40+yrs of Not Physically Circumcising anyone since the ‘Gold Calf’ of Ex.32 till Jos.5:2 evidenced by Jos.5:5.

I am not making this stuff up and I do not have access to your or the higher ups Bibles. Look this up (Acts 17:11). This and more even tho the proof is there is what’s not being told. And is proof of that – Inconvenient Truth – Sometimes Torah is not what we’ve been told or the way they want to tell it.

Across the Board

Across the Board

When coming to or validating re-discovered knowledge based on confirmed proof – on this human plain; it seems that we have to deal with the ruling ‘Higher Ups’ ‘Across the Board’.

Example – the history of ‘Billy the Kid’ (alias – William Bonny; real name William Henry McCarty, Jr.) – with modern technology it was asserted to do a DNA test on what is considered the body of ‘Billy the Kid’ against his mother’s (Catherine McCarty-Antrim) DNA. But – those that control and have made a living off tourism on the alleged ‘Billy the Kid’ Fort Sumner N. Mex. burial site; have mounted an effective resistance. For they already have their truth – and the tourist $’s that go with it. They realize that the other outcome (proof that he is not) could ruin what they have built and now bank on.

Example – Archeology – The Georgia-Florida / Mayan connection – As presented by H2 on a Netflix episode of ‘America Unearthed’ called ‘ American Maya Secret’. This is a part of US history that is unknown but to a few. That the ‘Creek’ Indians are actually descendent’s of the Central American Maya. But the evidence actually face Archaeological Political action and ‘Push-Back’ from the Academic community to shut-down, hush & ridicule the evidence; that includes – Linguistic, Archo-astrological structures, Same symbols to record same events, and names of Indian groups around lake Okeechobee – Maya-imi, Maya-ka, Maya-yuaca – and even a speculative link to Miami (Maya-mi). That have been written about for at least 150yrs that has become silenced even taboo – that in the words of 1 researcher will no doubt have to “change one death at a time”.

Example – Theology – The resurgence back to the Original Melkizedeq Priesthood; that is ignored by the Christian Church and taught against by the Messianic (et. al) alike – in favor of a Levitical including Priesthood mind-set; despite the fact Yahshua haMeshiach is our New Testament Melkizedeq High Priest (Heb.7:21). Both these groups whether admitted to or not, acquiesce to the Orthodox Jewish/Rabbis who do not validate Yahshua as Meshiach and therefore labor under a skewed view of their own text (2Cor.3:13-14) that includes an unbiblical acceptance of Rabbis not even mentioned in nor authorized in Torah and their rulings and writings that do not faithfully represent Torah.

That includes the pre-declared awareness of Gen.49:10 of ‘change’ confirmed at Heb.7:11-12, That further ignores the fact that; – It is not a change ‘of’ Torah, to enact the change ‘in’ Torah that has always been ‘in’ the pages of Torah.

And the fact of Ex.32 breaking of Covenant with the ‘Gold Calf’ that brought the forfeit Melkizedeq change to the Levitical Priesthood (Num.3:12/Ezk.20:10-25) and what most do not know or realize to factor in is the ceasing of physical circumcision for the the rest of Torah until Jos.5:2 as evidenced by Jos.5:5.

This is the inconvenient truth that they the Messianic/Jewish higher-ups do not want to deal with or truthfully factor in; for it (in confluence) calls into question most if not all of what they have built their Levitical/Rabbinc mind-set belief system on; that is accepted by Messianic & Christains alike; tho responded to in opposition – In other words; opposite symptoms of the same illness.

The Christian Church ignores the law – The Messianic resonating with the Rabbinic/Orthodox embrace all the law – yet Paul and others demonstrate a Melkizedeq position in the middle. This is what Yahshua (the Melkizedeq High Priest) meant at;

Mt 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (1Jn.5:3)
This does not mean No ‘yoke’ or No ‘burden’ but neither does it mean the anchor drag of Plan ‘B’ Levitical law no longer valid still pressed into service non-sense (Acts 15:10).

Yahweh’s service is about freedom – Yahshua came to set the captives free – Both from ‘Sin’ and the rigors of being under Levitical law (or any Rabbinic, etc. other)

Rest assured that Melkizedeq law tho freer still includes Sabbath, Feastdays, Clean Meats, Redeeming of the 1st Born, Commandments, Circumcision of the Heart and others (including NT) considerations.

Hebrews Thru Melkizedeq Eyes 2

Hebrews Thru Melkizedeq Eyes 2

Heb 7:1 ¶ For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high [Yah], who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;

2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;

3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of [Yah]; abideth a priest continually.

4 Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils. (That should settle the age old question – The Net or the Gross – It was not all Abraham had)

5 And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, (Levitical Book of the Law that came after the Melkizedeq Covenant breach of Ex.32) that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:

6 But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.

7 And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better. – The Levites thru Abraham are bless by the greater Melkizedeq

11 ¶ If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?

The Melkizedeq Book of the Covenant (Ex.19:5 thru 24:8-11) was Not received by the Levitical priesthood there was no such thing at that time

However this does Torah include – Ex.24:12 and on, Ex.32 the Cov’t breach, which brought on the loss of the Melchizedek Priesthood – (‘IF’ Ex.19:5-6) , the physical non-Circumcision, that extended for 40yrs to include, the formation of the Levitical/Aaronic Priesthood Ex.40:13-15, that extended to the Levitical Priesthood Num.3:12, and the formation of its added laws (Gal.3:19/Heb.7:11/Ezk.20:24-25), the giving of tzitizits at Num.15:38, and the consummation and giving of the Book of the Law at Dt.31:26, and even Jos.5:2 the 2nd command to physically Circumcise, as evidenced by Jos.5:5

12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

A return/reversion back to the pre-Ex.24:12 – Melkizedeq breach/brake standard

13 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar. – Only Levites were to be Priests Num.3:12

14 For it is evident that our Master sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood. – Only Levites were to be Priests Num.3:12

15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,

Heb 7:17 For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. – Ps 110:4; Heb 5:6,10; 6:20

18 For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.

19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto [Yah]. Eph.2:12

20 And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest: 21 (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by **him that said unto him**, YHWH sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:) – Ps.110:4

Heb 7:28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity (ie subject to death); but the word of the oath (Ps.110:4), which was since the law (Num.3:12), maketh the Son, who is consecrated (ie perfected) for evermore.

Heb 8:4 For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law: (after the breach of the first covenant – This does Not include/validate Rabbis)

*6 But now (2000yrs ago) hath he (Yahshua) obtained a more excellent (Melkizedeq) ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was (past tense) established upon better promises.

7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.

‘had been faultless’ – because of the people – – the second ie the New Covenant

Heb 8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith [Yah], when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith [Yah].

10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith [Yah]; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a Elohim, and they shall be to me a people: compare to Jer 31:31-33

11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know [Yah]: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. – comparable to Jer 31:34 speaking of the future millennial reign which obviously has not happened

Heb 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant (Jer.31:31-33/Lk.22:20), he hath made the first (that was broken) old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away. – This happened 2000yrs ago
