Are not the Levites the chosen priests for the nation of Israel? We know that under the law one family (Aaronic), from one tribe (Levi), exclusively was admitted to the priesthood and that the Gentiles, as unclean, were so far from having it in their power to discharge that priesthood that they were forbidden to enter into the temple! Yeshayahu/Isaiah prophesies the coming a holy nation (Isaiah 66), a return to Covenant, and a Melchizedek reality!

Mystery of the Melchizedek - Part 5

Mystery of the Melchizedek – Part 5

Isaiah Ben Amoz
Mid-Eighth century B.C.E 

Bet 12:3 Now יהוה had said to Avram, Get out of your country, and from your mishpacha, and from your abba’s bayit, to a land that I will show you: And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a bracha: 3 And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you: and in you shall all mishpachot of the earth be mingled (“Va’avarechah mevarachecha umekalelecha a’or ve’nivrechu vecha kol mishpechot ha’adamah”. 

Contemporary scholars, lacking faith, have divided the book of Isaiah into three sections:

  1. to Isaiah of Jerusalem (ch. 1-39),
  2. to a prophet at the time of the exile (Deutero Isaiah ch.40-55)
  3. and to a post exilic prophet (the Third Isaiah ch. 56-66).

Why? Because they have trouble reconciling the last half of book as the predictions of Isaiah. You see, oracles of doom begin the book but themes of consolation (beginning Ch. 40) end the book with the return from exile over 2 centuries later.
Chs, 1-39 are addressed to the nation during the Assyrian invasions (740-700BCE), chs.40-55 to the exiles in Babylon (600-539 BCE) and chs, 56-66 to the community after its return to the land (539-500 BCE).

What’s so hard for contemporary scholars to believe is that Isaiah miraculously prophecies the naming of Cyrus more than a century beforehand (ch. 44:28) and then he tops that by predicting Yeshua’s birth by the virgin (ch.7), death by crucifixion and subsequent resurrection (ch. 53).
Some would even assert he predicted the false flag on 911 in ch.9:8.

John 12:37 But though He (Yeshua) had done so many nisim before them, yet they believed not on Him: 38 That the saying of Yeshayahu the navi might be fulfilled, which he spoke saying vuvh, (Is 53:1“who has believed our report? And to whom has the Arm of the Master vuvh been revealed?” )39 Therefore they could not believe, because Yeshayahu said again, 40 (Is 6:10 “They have blinded their eyes, and hardened their levavot; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their levavot, and return, and I would heal them.”) 41 These things said Yeshayahu, when he saw His tifereth, and spoke of Him. 

John has no problem attributing “Proto-Isaiah” (Is. 6:10) and “Deutero Isaiah” (Is. 53:1) simply to the prophet Isaiah!

Isaiah 66. 

Isaiah served יהוה in a role as covenant prosecutor. His messages consisted of charges, condemnation and judgments as he declares YHWH’s curses on Israel, Judah and the nations. Isaiah is summoned to represent the heavenly court in Jerusalem’s earthly court. Israel and Judah had become like the Gentiles, they had lost all vision of YHWH’s kingdom of righteousness and had tried to establish their own righteousness within their own kingdom.

Romans 10:3 3 For they being ignorant of vuvh’s tzedakah, go about to establish their own tzedakah, 12 have not submitted themselves to the tzedakah of vuvh. 4 For Moshiach is the actual goal of the Torah for an eternal tzadik standing to everyone that believes. (you can’t get an eternal tzadik standing through the Levitical BoL) 5 For Moshe describes the tzedakah that comes from the Torah: That the man who does those things shall live by them. 6 But the tzedakah that is of emunah speaks in this manner…

Ephesians Hebraically – Intro

Who were the Ephesians? As we begin our study of the text, we examine the historical and cultural climates for Ephesus, as well as the nature of authorship and theme of the letter.Through spiritual maturity and an indwelling of the Ruach, we move from doctrine and reasoned argument, to doxology and prayer.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Intro

Romiyah/Romans is the most influential letter ever written and have impacted theology, politics, civil law, and church doctrine in the West. Classical approaches to this epistle have started Reformations and used to support misogyny. What if our approach to Shaul/Paul’s letter has been wrong? Join our study, as we leave behind traditional interpretations, in favor of the truth of the original language and the context of the whole of Scripture!

Unlocking Galatians Hebraically – Intro

Are you walking in freedom? In the Institutionalized Church, Galutyah/Galatians is used to justify a Christian’s severance from the law of Moshe/Moses. Is this truly the intent of the epistle, divided from the rest of Scripture? Some have found the text to be so problematic that they reject Shaul/Paul altogether. Join us, as we study Galutyah/Galatians!

The Hebraic Epistle of First John – Intro

Are you on the narrow path? The Yochanan/Johannine Epistles are an exposition of those who have gone out from us on the narrow Melchizedek Path, into the esoteric wisdom of men. There is truly nothing new under the sun, as the same perversions that crept into the assemblies of The Way are present with us today.

James the Just – Intro

Yaakov Tzadik, or James the Just: Brother of Messiah, Zealot Leader, and Episcopate of the Jerusalem Assembly. Is this epistle simply an unpacking of Christology, or a guide for practical living among the Melchizedek priesthood? Join us, as we delve into the text itself and the history of it’s author; Yaakov/James!

Hebrews Hebraically – Intro

What is going on with the book of Ivrim/Hebrews? Is it a Pauline epistle? A confirmation of the end of the Law of Moshe/Moses? Damage control from a Jewish ministry, trying to reconcile the outbreak of a highbrow Messianic/Christian Judaism combination? One of the most pro Torah texts in all of the Brit Chadasha/New Testament, the lens with which we use to view this text will drastically impact the context we give it. Join us as we study Hebrews Hebraically!

Mystery-Melchizedek

Mystery of the Melchizedek – Part 2

What is Torah? Everyone has heard of the Book of the Law, but most never hear of the Book of the Covenant. Covenants of promise (Ephesians 2:12) are distinct, traceable throughout Scripture, and they are available to us today.

Mystery-Melchizedek

Mystery of the Melchizedek – Part 3

Didn’t Yahuwah say He would never break his covenant (Psalms 89:34)? When the Promise Covenant (Genesis 12) had a death penalty (Genesis 15) added to it, our sin nature was bound to make things messy. When the Israelites sinned at the Golden Calf, Yahuwah made a preparation in His Torah that would allow us to return to the foundational relationship He originally called us to.

Mystery-Melchizedek

Mystery of the Melchizedek – Part 4

How do we know what is Covenant and what is Law? What happened to the Melchizedek Priesthood? Learn the four elements of covenant that attach back to the Avraham/Abrahamic Covenant and the 19 laws that are outlined by Rav Sholiac Shaul/Rabbi Apostle Paul in the Brit Chadasha/New Testament. Separate from being a nation with priests, to a nation of priests!
