Ministration of Death

Ministration of Death
*
Let’s examine 2Cor.3:7-14 in sections
*
2Cor.3:7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away: 8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious? 9 For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. 9 For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
*
ministration of death – ministration of condemnation … ‘written and engraven in stones’
*
Dt.27:2 And it shall be on the day when ye shall pass over Jordan unto the land which YHWH thy Elohim giveth thee, that thou shalt set thee up *great stones* (ie uncarriable boulders), and plaister them with plaister: 3 And thou shalt *write* (ie engraven) upon them all the words of this law, when thou art passed over, that thou mayest go in unto the land which YHWH thy Elohim giveth thee, a land that floweth with milk and honey; as YHWH Elohim of thy fathers hath promised thee. 4 Therefore it shall be when ye be gone over Jordan, that ye shall set up these *stones*, which I command you this day, in mount Ebal, and thou shalt plaister them with plaister.
*
4 contrasted ‘ministration’ positions – ministration of death vs ministration of the spirit – ministration of condemnation vs ministration of righteousness – Death vs Life – Consequence vs Righteousness.
*
I have not been able to find an adequate/concrete definition defining ‘ministration’ as opposed to ‘administration’. The best was – “Apparently by ‘differences of administration’ is meant the distinctive varieties of service and ministration by which things are accomplished in the Church.”
*
However it can be deduced that a ‘minister’ is a person in charge while administer is an action. Be that as it may.
*
Ex.24:12 And YHWH said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.
*
1] (2) table/ts cut from 1 stone; Not 2] table of several stones
*
Ex.31:18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone [portable / carriable ie ‘gave’], written with the finger of [Yah]. – Dt.9:10
*
1] two carriable tables made from 1 stone; is very different than 2] engravings on multiple immovable *great stones* ie boulders. (envision a wayward child writing on a blackboard multiple times – ‘I will not …’)
*
If I remember correctly Rabbinic types claim this (Dt.27:2-4) was done for each of the known 70 languages; that’s a lot of ‘I will not-s …’
*
1] death – G2288 thanatos – death; 2] spirit – G4151 pneuma – spirit; 3] condemnation – G2633 – katakrisis – kat-ak’-ree-sis; 4] righteousness – G1343 dikaiosune – righteousness
*
Condemnation – G2633 – katakrisis – From G2632; sentencing adversely (the act): – condemn (-ation).
*
This ‘ministration of death/condemnation’ was the ‘added law’ (Gal.3:19) for transgression – “which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear” (Act.15:10). For transgressing the Melkizedeq (Marriage-Jer.31:32) Covenant of vowed/agreed to ‘righteousness’. This ‘ministration of death’ was none other than for the ‘mitigation’ of;
*
Ex.32:10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them (ie annihilate – including Aaron & Sons): and I will make of thee a great nation.
*
Even tho ‘mitigation’ is not a biblical word; who cannot see that YHWH ‘mitigated’ His initial Ex.32:10 ruling over All Israel of absolute – utter Death?
*
Mitigation [mit-i-gey-shuh n] – 1. the act of mitigating, or lessening the force or intensity of something unpleasant, *as wrath*, pain, grief, or extreme circumstances … 2. the act of making a condition or consequence less severe:
*
It stands to reason that the act of the Mitigation of something ‘unpleasant’ (Death) would require something less egregious which involves ‘mercy’.
*
Now go back and put in ‘The Mitigation of’ instead of ‘the ministration of death/condemnation in 2Cor.3:7-8. This is exactly what YHWH did; He ‘mitigated’ (lessened) his death sentence BUT there would be consequences. The Levitical Priesthood was born (Num.3:12) PLUS the introduction of ‘added law’ (Gal.3:19) – Book of the Law (Gal.3:10)
*
Continuing – 2Cor.3:10 For even **that which was made glorious (the Levitical Priesthood) had no glory in this respect**, by reason of the glory that excelleth (the glory of the Melkizedeq Priesthood). 11 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious. 12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: 13 And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: 14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in reading the old testament; which vail is done away in [Messiah].
*
“for until this day remains” – sound familiar? – Rah, Rah, Rah All Levitical Law – Really? And there is another point; what was ‘Plan B’ Levitical Law from Torah has turned into the flubdubbery of Rabbinic pick and choose including out-right discarding to injecting fabricated imaginations.
*
Oh; Yes, ‘it was glorious’ Absolutely YHWH allowed and instituted the ‘Plan B’ Levitical Priesthood and Book of the Law. As a concession (mitigation) in place of the complete & utter annihilation of all Israel. Yippiee/Yeah us! Didn’t we kick slop on that one? – What a close call is more like it. Thankyou for the mercies of YHWH.
*
2Cor.3:11 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.
*
Now we have a quandary in an enigma wrapped in a conundrum; suffice it to say here that the ‘Plan B’ Levitical Law of ‘death & condemnation’ are ‘done away’; the ‘Plan ‘A’ Melkizedeq Law of Spirit & Righteousness established before (Gen.1:1 thru Ex.24:8-11) “remains”
*
*
And that’s the point; even tho the ‘Plan ‘B’ Levitical Priesthood ‘was glorious’ BUT “[it] had no glory in this respect” it was still the ‘Plan ‘B’ concession for breaking YHWH’s ‘Plan ‘A’; the Melkizedeq Priesthood and Covenants; “the glory that excelleth” ie is more excellent.
*
And this is what most hold to; with their ‘Plan ‘B’ Levitical Priesthood mindset? All the while ignoring or worse, out-right rejecting the Melkizedeq Priesthood and Covenants the obvious originals.
*
Ezk.20:24 Because they had not executed *my (Melkizedeq) judgments, but had despised *my (Melkizedeq) statutes, and had polluted *my (Melkizedeq) sabbaths, and their eyes were after their fathers’ (pagan) idols.
*
Ezk.20:25 Wherefore I (YHWH) gave them also (Levitical) statutes that were *not good*, and (Levitical) judgments whereby they should *not live*; (Ex.32:10 – Ezk.20:25, Act.15:10, Gal.3:19, 2Cor.3:7-9, Heb.7:12)
*
Who would not want to return to?;
*
Mat 11:30 “For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” – This is a Melkizedeq statement by the Melkizedeq High Priest – Yahshua.
