The Proper Priesthood Divide
Over the last few years there have been those that have pulled all communication – pulling all ways to even contact them. I on the other hand have remained accessible. It is as if to say; Do you want to protect what you think you know or do you want to support what you think you know; then and only then making possible learning, understanding & wisdom in correct rightly divided tested truth. Make no mistake; pulling contact definitely protects what you think you know but it is the stuff of calcified 1 sided reasoning – It does not engender or encourage any meaningful thoughtful or interactive midrash ie learning or new revelation.
Some have actually gone on record (audio &/or video) to say something that is absolutely true in much the same way as I would tell it to them over a contested subject – yet they do not see they have snagged their own selves by their own words – This is what the British term as being ‘hoisted by your own petard’. And; as you could imagine – they highly do Not appreciate the calling of attention to it. Again winning no points for the truth.
In the last few recent months; there does seem to be an all of a sudden bum’s rush to deify the line of Zadok as some kind of acceptable Levitical priestline for Messiah – The plain fact is All of the Levitical Priesthood is a Plan ‘B’ concession in-lieu-of Priesthood – It includes Aaron, Zadok, Pinehas, etc. for the breach of Plan ‘A’ Melkizedeq Covenant and its Plan ‘A’ Melkizedeq Priesthood (Ex.19:5-6).
As the Melkizedeq message is becoming more mainstream; it has become fashionable even alluring enough that there is a certain segment of the Messianic (even Church) community certainly among teachers, preachers, rabbis, scholars and lecturers that seek nonetheless to uphold; even champion a Levitical lineage through Zadok for Yahshua haMashiach (Christ). As some sort of needed proper ‘Levitical Mindset’ lineage legality.
And that seems to be more to the point; rather than to justify Yahshua’s Melkizedeq Priesthood – These 1’s in reverse seek to justify the continuance of the Plan ‘B’ Priesthood through a deified Zadok line attached to Yahshua by any means. They nevertheless do so in direct opposition to very clear biblical text to the contrary;
Heb 7:13 For he (Yahshua) of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe (other than Levi), of which no man gave attendance at the altar. 14 For it is evident that [Master Yahshua] sprang out of **Juda**; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood. 15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest, 16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life…
Yahshua biblically is called ‘the Lion of Judah’ (Rev.5:5); He is never called ‘the ?? of Levi’ (??.??:??)
With Yahshua Himself squaring off to put the final coup-d-gras defining last word on the subject.
Mat 11:11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
This is an iron-clad absolute statement – from the absolute Authority; Yahshua – Son of the Most High YHWH.
How could have Yahshua made such a statement? Unless He knew that John the Baptist was a Levite of the Sons of Aaron – Zadokite line of the Essenes. No natural man born under the Levitical system (Gal.4:4) could aspire to any higher. John being appointed to herald the appearance & coming of Messiah. What could be more pinnacle than that? But; being ‘in’ the Melkizedeq Kingdom-Malkuth of YHWH the King-Melek being greater than John the Baptist by Yahshua’s own words. In as much saying that highest Levitical priest will never be over even the lowest Melkizedeq subject let alone the lowest Melkizedeq Priest (Heb.7:7).
The very reason that people get and stay lost is the same whether in the wilderness or the Bible. No remembered awareness & disregarding direction indicators. These Rah-Rah ‘Levitically/Rabbinically minded’ Aaron/Zadok guys show an unhealthy disregard to do just exactly that. So what are the brass-tack origins to this notion?
Zedek in Hebrew does mean ‘righteousness’ which is a verb. Zadok is the son of a man; that named him Zadok – We 1st see … Zadok the son of Ahitub at 2Sam.8:17. This carries no deification attribute of itself. And as a fact insures that Zadok son of Ahitub is forever a Levite son of Aaron of the Plan ‘B’ Levitical-Aaronic Priesthood. Yet the line of Zadok is deified as some sort of cut-above out ranking ‘righteousness’ priesthood – Mt.11:11
I operate in what I call ‘bottom-line’ theology. I do not care how grand or elaborate anyone has made their line of thinking or reasoning – I do not chase down rabbit or rabbi trails – this saves a lot of wasted time and silly squandered effort & a lot of typing. Rather; What is this anchored to and what are they disregarding to make their wayward conclusions reasonable, feasible and sound oh-so biblical even unquestioningly scholarly?
We all have to deal with the fact that Yahshua came through and died for a bunch of Covenant Breakers that included all tribes; including Levites and even Goy of the nations. These ‘Covenant Breakers’ were remanded to a Plan ‘B’ Levitical-Aaronic Priesthood (Num.3:12) that were all to die for the same ‘Gold Calf’ ‘Covenant Breach’ incidence (Ex.32:10). This broke the Ex.19:5-6 promise severing that ‘perfect’ Plan ‘A’ Melkizedeq Priesthood opportunity for all Israel for the very same Melkizedeq ‘Covenant Breaking’.
For the 1’s that can’t contain themselves saying Rah-Rah the Levitical Priesthood was appointed by Yah – Yes a permissive 2nd place stand-in fix & it was glorious; certainly better than complete & utter annihilation (Ex.32:10). Still it was not Yah’s perfect Plan ‘A’ Melkizedeq Priesthood opportunity (Ezk.20:10-25). This would now have to wait 15 +/- centuries for the coming of Yahshua (Gen.49:10/Gal.3:19); who was born under but kept the law perfectly (Gal.4:4).
He (Yahshua) was declared ‘King’ by others and declared ‘Priest’ after the order of ‘Melkizedeq’ by YHWH Himself (Ps.110:4/Heb.7:21) the transfer of which being brokered & confirmed by John the Baptist. This is what was meant by;
Heb 7:21 For those (Aaron, Zadok, Phinehas, etc. Levi) priests were made without an oath; but this (Yahshua) with an oath by ‘him that said unto him’ (Ps.110:1), [YHWH] sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:…
No imaginary Levi lineage – Aaron married Elizabeth … Zachariah married Elizabeth, Maccabees said, Mary was cousin to, this or that making Yahshua this or that, bla, bla, blahhh. No; Zadok legitimacy elevated coronation; wrenching words into or out of Yah’s instruction (Torah) flubdubbery needed.
Besides All of this Yahshua did Not come through any man as His Father – Therefore is not beholding to or encumbered by any tribal hierarchy or traditions.
When all is said and done it makes sense that Yahshua Messiah would be spared from ever being part of a 2nd string concession Plan ‘B’ Priesthood. It makes absolute sense that Yahshua would be forever & all time be protected from ever being or needing to be a part of or beholding to a Plan ‘B’ Levitical-Aaronic-Zadok Priesthood & its eventualities formed because of the Melkizedeq ‘Covenant Breach’ of Ex.32 – The very Covenant Yahshua kept perfectly to show His eligibility to die as the perfect ransom/sacrifice needed in our place.
Some never miss the chance to lodge ‘eternal & forever’ – That the Levitical Priesthood has been Divinely given an eternal (without end) covenant of intimate high order service … Bla, Bla, Blahhh.
