In the holy scriptures Abraham was not commanded that he had to wear tzitzitot/fringes to help him remember the holy matters of the Kingdom, he never saw the Temple, wasn’t even Jewish but boy did he have faith! Oh, and giving tithe to Levites, well they didn’t even exist at that time. He gave to the King of Righteousness, which translates in Hebrew to Melchizedek. He honored Melchizedek, as should we! Melchizedek’s personal name is Yahuah. He also happens to be the Creator of Heaven and Earth.
Dan 2:22 “He reveals deep and secret matters. He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him.
Melchizedek is The Creator and our Heavenly Father too. The High Priest to Melchizedek is His son, Yahusha the Messiah of Israel.
Promised a National Melchizedek Priesthood, Exodus 19:4 ~ 24:11 (as we have today), thousands of years ago, Israel ended up with a “Tribal Levitical Priesthood”! This Priesthood was male only and to a limited amount of them at that! What!
Yes, the story is explained in the book of Exodus. Vast amount of born again believers of Messiah don’t yet understand the importance of the Melchizedek Priesthood, it’s inclusion of the 7th Day Sabbath, dietary instructions, feast keeping and as well as its’ difference from the Book of the Law Torah. Things are not always what they seem to be.
The wonderful news is that the Levitical Priesthood was put in place until the Messiah of Israel would come on the scene thousands of years later and rescue humanity by his death, burial and resurrection! The Book of the Law Torah prophesied this event! He paid a death position (i.e., he died on the cross/stake by crucifixion) which Yahuah had cleverly included in the original “Genesis 15 Promise Covenant, for The Book of the Covenant”, Yahuah & Yahusha cut while Abraham slept, see Genesis 12 & Genesis 15.
Gal 3:8 And the Scripture, having foreseen that Elohim would declare right the nations by belief [faith], announced the Good News to Aḇraham beforehand, saying, “All the nations shall be blessed in you,” [Emphasis added]
Because of Yahusha Messiah we now are a part of a Spiritual Priesthood.
Rom 8:9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of Elohim dwells in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Messiah, this one is not His.
The Levitical Priesthood could not attain this same spiritual status.
1Co 3:16 Do you not know that you are a Dwelling Place of Elohim and that the Spirit of Elohim dwells in you?
It was important for us to learn what many of us have over the years about the Torah and the Levitical Priesthood. Now we can truly understand at the end of the ages what we are being called into. Our battles will be spiritual and our worship to our King will be spiritual. We will be in continual communication with the Captain of the Host via our Spiritual communication network (the promise ~ the Gift of the Spirit)!
If you do not know what the Melchizedek Priesthood looks like or entails, well now is the time for boot camp!
Php 2:5 For, let this mind be in you which was also in Messiah יהושע,
Listen! You are being called! You are being called to a Priesthood ~ The Melchizedek Priesthood! It doesn’t matter that you are not male, or Jewish or you are of the nations. The Creator of Heaven & Earth, the Elohim of Israel is calling you to himself and this Priesthood. The door to Him is through His son, Yahusha the Messiah of Israel. Just ask Yahusha to make himself real to you and He will ~ just ask. It’s time.
Rom 8:10 And if Messiah is in you, the body is truly dead on account of sin, but the Spirit is life on account of righteousness.
