Hello, and welcome to another video from the only source of information that you need to not only survive the current apocalypse, but actually enjoy it, and today’s video is going to be the fifth installment in my Melchizedek Video series.
Earlier in this series I explained that at 1Corinthians 4:9 Paul felt that he, as well as other Bible characters were somehow being used as actors in a great theatrical exhibition. As recorded in the Bible:
“For I think that God has exhibited us apostles as men sentenced to death, as the final part of a great theatrical exhibition, to the world, to angels, and to humans.”
The repeating pattern of similar stories found throughout the Bible often make it easy to see which Bible personalities were participating in Paul’s theatrical production, as well as what they represented. However in many instances, who is portraying what, is often difficult to determine.
But in the case of Melchizedek there is no ambiguity about what part he was portraying. All of Psalms 110 is a prophecy specifically about Jesus, and at verse 4 we are told that the messiah was going to be like Melchizedek.
“The LORD hath sworn, and will not take it back, Thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.”
Knowing that Paul thought that he was an actor in God’s great theatrical production, we can understand that this verse is telling us that Melchizedek was one of God’s actors as well. And unlike many bible characters, we are specifically told what roll Melchizedek was playing. Somehow, the details of Melchizedek’s life would be important keys to understanding Jesus’ life.
As I proved in part 3 of this series, Melchizedek the rightful king of the land of Canaan, was Canaan. If we take into consideration everything that is revealed in the pages of the Bible about Canaan, and everything that is revealed about Melchizedek, it shouldn’t be too difficult to determine how Jesus and Melchizedek were similar.
Most of the clues about what Melchizedek represents can be found in The Bible Book Of Hebrews. Over the centuries the Religions of man have written volumes of confusing information describing their gods and explaining their doctrines according to the Bible. The standard Church teaching about The Book Of Hebrews, is that it was written by Paul in the first century, addressed directly to Jewish Christians as a means of explaining Jesus’ roll in the Jewish religion.
Many of the books of the Bible, begin with some kind of introduction revealing the identity of the author as well as other background information. The book that has become known as Hebrews, in it’s original form, simply starts off by making the statement “To The Hebrews”, with absolutely nothing to reveal the identity of the writer.
Most Churches teach that the writer was Paul, which seems reasonable, but, since that information was not recorded in the Bible, we cannot know for certain.
The Greek phrase that is translated as “To The Hebrews” in English, is actually, “pros Hebraios”.
Although the Greek word pros (Strong’s G4314) can be translated as the English word “to” in some situations, it is not the same as our English word to. Pros can be used to indicate physical proximity, as in towards, or near. It can be used to indicate something beneficial as in “to the advantage of”. Or it can mean “with regard to”. If we take into consideration what the Book of Hebrews is really about, it would seem logical to conclude that the actual introduction to the book would not be “To The Hebrews”, but “About the Hebrews”.
In other words the Book of Hebrews was not written specifically to the Hebrew people, but instead about the Hebrew people. The many references to Hebrew culture, found in it’s pages, should not be considered as evidence that the book was primarily addressed to the Jews. Those of us alive today, who regularly read from the Bible would benefit much more from the Book of Hebrews, than a Jewish person living in the first century.
The claim that “The Book Of Hebrews” was specifically written for Jewish people is every bit as baseless as the doctrinal belief of most Christians, that the Old Testament was specifically written for the Jewish people.
In The New Testament, there are several forms of the word that we translate as Hebrew. Several represent the Hebrew language, but in this case the word represents the Hebrew people. It would be accurate to say that The Book Of Hebrews in it’s original language begins with the phrase, “About the children of Eber”. In other words Eber’s biological offspring.
In Part 3 of this series, I explained that Eber was the last of Isaac’s ancestors to die. For the 29 years following Shem’s death, Eber would have been the earliest distinct male ancestor of the Hebrew people. What we would call the patriarch. The table of nations found in Chapter 10 of Genesis, confirms this to be the case.
The information in the Book of Hebrews is unlike anything recorded anywhere else in The Bible. The subject matter is unique. The way that it is presented is unique. And how it describes the Hebrew people is unique.
Prior to the writing of the Book of Hebrews, those learning about God from the apostles might have thought that the Jews had a relationship with God that was superior to the relationship that other races and nations of people enjoyed. They may have felt that the form of religion practiced by the Jews, was the form of religion that God wanted everyone to practice.
The books of the Bible that were added after Jesus’ death were filled with quotes from the Old Testament which were mostly written by and about the Hebrew people. Much of the evidence that Jesus was the unique son of God came from those Old Testament books. Even in our day many who call themselves Christians refer to the Jews as “God’s chosen people”.
The Book of Hebrews just like other New Testament Books would be filled with quotes from the Old Testament. And once again, many of those quotes would be used as proof that Jesus was in fact the Messiah. While at the same time exposing the foolishness of the belief in racial superiority.
As the information is presented in the Book of Hebrews, even a Jewish person, who was humble enough to listen, was going to learn, that for a certainty, as a race, as a people, as a nation, and even as a religion, they were in no way superior to anyone.
Many of the confusing scriptures found in the Tanakh, where finally going to be explained. Things like Patriotism, Nationalism, and Zionism, were finally going to be exposed for what they were then, and what they still are today. Glorified Racism.
Hebrews 1:2 says,
“God has spoken to us in these last days through his son. Who was appointed heir.”
According to this verse, Jesus really is a child of God. The Greek word used here is the same word used many times throughout the Bible to describe the relationship between a parent and a child. According to Jewish social order only a son could be considered the heir of a father. Calling Jesus an heir confirms that according to the Bible, Jesus would inherit his standing amongst mankind directly from the creator.
As the father of everyone alive on the Earth, it would be God’s right to choose which of his children to place in a position of authority.
Much of the information found in The Book of Hebrews relates to genealogies.
As recorded in 1Timothy 1:4-7:
“Stay in Ephesus so that you may command people not to teach false doctrines and myths and to stop wasting time talking about genealogies. Such controversy and speculation has nothing to do with advancing God’s work which is by faith. Our goal, and the goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience. They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about.”
According to this verse, the genealogies of the Jewish people were every bit as worthless, and wicked, as false doctrines.
One of the primary pieces of evidence connecting Paul to the Book of Hebrews is a verse found in the book addressed to Timothy. Timothy traveled with Paul for a time, so, if in fact Paul was the writer of Hebrews, as many believe, Timothy would have understood the information regarding genealogy recorded in Hebrews, before The Book Of Hebrews was even put into written form.
During Timothy’s time with Paul, there can be no doubt that they would have spent many hours discussing the things that Paul was writing about. In listening to the teachings of Paul, Timothy would have recognized the insignificance of Jewish genealogies. The Book of Hebrews would firmly establish why.
As I said earlier in Part 3 of this series Melchizedek’s father was Noah. Since the Book of Hebrews in it’s original form was written about the son’s of Eber, and much of the subject matter concerns genealogy, we can expect that the relationship between Melchizedek and his father, Noah, is somehow related to the relationship between Jesus and his father, God.
At Hebrews 5:6 a direct reference is made to Psalms 110:4.
“As he saith also “in another place”, thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.”
According to the Churches, The Book of Hebrews was written as a means of helping the Jews to understand how Jesus’ sacrifice related to the Jewish faith. The title alone would seemingly support this assumption.
However as we examine the contents of Hebrews for ourselves, we are going to find that the entire book is basically a mockery of Judaism, and in fact a mockery of Civilization itself. The divisions of mankind based on religion, nationality, and race were about to be exposed as foolishness.
The word Melchizedek is only used 11 times in the entire Bible. Of those 11 instances, 9 are found in the Book of Hebrews. The name of Jesus appears 14 times in the Book of Hebrews. Anyone reading the Book of Hebrews with an open mind would recognize that it’s primary focus is on the family lineages of Jesus and Melchizedek.
There is more information recorded about this Old Testament Bible character in this one small New Testament book, than is recorded in the entire Old testament.
If this book had no name, we could call it the Book of Melchizedek. Naming this book “The Book Of Hebrews” or more accurately rendering it from the original Greek as “In Regard To The descendants Of Eber” is just another means that God has used for pointing out just how insignificant family lineage is in determining who God’s chosen people are.
I produced a video a while back called “The Ten Commandments And The Law Of Moses” that explains how and why the Jewish religion was established. Basically what occurred early in Jewish history is that Moses was used to deliver God’s natural law, to the nation of Israel, in the form that has come to be known as “The Ten Commandments”. When the Israelites rejected God’s natural law, he gave them a replacement law, more to their liking.
Understanding the difference between God’s law, and The Law Of Moses is going to be very important to anyone wanting to have a basic understanding of what the Bible is actually about. And for our purposes today understanding the roll that Melchizedek played in the overall theme of the Bible.
That theme, as I often like to point out is the War between God’s Kingdom and Satan’s Empire. This war can also be though of as the war between Creation, and Civilization, or as the war between, the righteous angels and the wicked angels.
In the very first mention of Melchizedek found at Genesis 14:18-20, the Bible says:
“Melchizedek, King of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was the priest of God Most High. And he blessed him and said, “Blessed Be Abram by God Most High, possessor of heaven and Earth, and blessed be God most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand!” and Abram gave him a tenth of everything.”
The Jewish people had been reading these verses for hundreds of years and yet seemingly no one ever questioned why Abraham, their founding father, would pay tithes to this man, nor why the Bible clearly called him the priest of God most high.
Rather than ignoring the details of Abram’s meeting with Melchizedek, as the Hebrew people had done for hundreds of years, The Book of Hebrews was going to reveal the undeniable significance of the account for what it is. Essential Bible Truth! Hebrews 7:1-3 highlights just how significant Melchizedek’s roll was.
“For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first by interpretation being the rightful king, and after that also King of peace, without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abides as a priest continually.”
The Book of Hebrews was not the first mention of the significance of Melchizedek’s roll. At the verse that I spoke of earlier, Psalms 110:1,4, The Nation of Israel was told that their messiah would be like Melchizedek.
“The Lord sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies! The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind, “You are a priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek.”
This verse revealed to the ancient nation of Israel, that not only would their messiah be a priest like Melchizedek, but a king as well.
To anyone reading the Bible it is obvious that the Jews strictly adhered to every insignificant detail of their religious rituals. They took great pride in breaking down each and every word of the Jewish law code, and debating over how each detail was to be observed.
Jesus described it this way, at Matthew 23:23:
“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and yet omit the weightier matters of the law. Judgment, mercy, and faith ought ye to have done, without leaving the others undone.”
Being so observant of the Law of Moses, there is no way that the religious leaders of the nation would have missed the fact that Melchizedek was a King and a Priest. According to their sacred laws, that would be impossible.
After King David, all kings would be the sons of the previous king. David as well as all of the Kings who came afterward had been members of the tribe of Judah.
Near the end of his life, Jacob, also known as Israel blessed each of his sons, and in blessing his son Judah at Genesis 49:10, declared:
“The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the staff of rulership from between his feet, until the possessor of tranquility comes, and unto him shall the people gather obediently.”
As recorded in the ancient languages of the oldest existing copies of the Book of Genesis. This verse reveals a very important detail that the Churches have been concealing for thousands of years. Rulership of Israel would be based on family lineage, until the possessor of tranquility came, at which time, rulership of Israel would not be dependent on family lineage.
If you don’t get what I’m telling you, go back and read Genesis 49:10 one more time. “The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the staff of rulership from between his feet, until the possessor of tranquility comes.” This verse is not about Jesus being the last king in Judah’s line. It’s about Jesus’ rulership replacing Judah’s line.
Jacob’s blessing came years after Abraham’s meeting with Melchizedek. The Jews may not have had a problem with Abraham bowing to a recognized king outside of the lineage leading to the Jewish nation, because that was in the past. However, prophecies about a future king outside of that lineage would have been unacceptable. Zionist then were no different than Zionist in our day. All members of all races are racial supremacists. There are people like myself that do not think of ourselves as being members of a race, but we are few and far between.
Most people who are familiar with the Bible can figure out for themselves without any help from the Churches, that “The Possessor Of Tranquility” would be Jesus. What they would not be able to figure out is why Jesus did not have the legal right to rule based on his family lineage. One of Jesus’ titles as found at Revelation 5:5 is “Lion of the Tribe of Judah”.
In part 9 of this series, you will learn how Jesus earned the title “Lion of the Tribe of Judah”, even though he did not actually descend from the lineage of kings.
It is possible that the ancient people of Israel were as ignorant of the identity of Melchizedek, as the adherents of Christianity are today. But I don’t think so. Much of the confusion about Melchizedek’s identity was intentionally generated during the translation process. The identification of Melchizedek, as Canaan would have been very clear, and easy to figure out in the original language books that would have been available to the ancient nation of Israel.
After examining how the account appeared in the ancient Hebrew text and comparing it to our modern English translations, it seems more than obvious, that someone, at some point in time, realized that they did not want mankind to recognize the fact that Melchizedek, God’s chosen king at the time of Abraham was Canaan. All translations of the Book of Genesis depict Canaan as deserving of a curse. In fact the religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, all depict Canaan as some kind of villain.
It is very likely that the Hebrew, and Greek speaking people who had access to the Bible, as originally recorded, were very much aware that Melchizedek was Canaan, and that Canaan was not a Hebrew. Certainly they would have known that Melchizedek was not descended from Shem, and not of the tribe of Judah. To the patriotic members of the nation of Israel, these verses would have been unbearable to read. In fact most members of Christendom, Judaism and Islam, today, are every bit as patriotic, nationalistic, and racist as those members of the ancient nation of Israel. To that ancient nation of racial supremacists, the Canaanites who descended from Melchizedek would have been considered subhumans.
As is recorded at Genesis 49:10, Jacob himself declared that when the true King came, the king that would bring tranquility, he would have no legal claim to the throne based on his family lineage.
But according to Bible prophecy, Jesus would not only be a king, but a priest as well. As Hebrews 5:9,10 says,
“Jesus, being made perfect, became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him. Called by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek”
And again, at Hebrews 6:20:
“Jesus the forerunner has entered, as high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.”
In comparing Jesus to Melchizedek, Hebrews 7:3 in most English translations of the Bible says:
He is without father, mother or genealogy. He has neither beginning of days nor end of life, but resembling the Son of God he continues as a priest forever.
This verse is a favorite of Trinitarians. Since, only God can be said to not have a mother or father, they reason that Jesus must be God. And by default, Melchizedek must be god as well, meaning that Jesus and Melchizedek must be one and the same. Two human beings without fleshly parents.
But the words that get translated as without mother or father are actually apator, and amator. Strong’s G540 and G282. If you look up these two words, most reference works define them as “without legal claim based on father’s lineage”, and “without legal claim based on mother’s lineage”.
Also included in this run of text is the word agenaelogetos (Strong’s G35), which in most Bibles gets translated as without genealogy, lending further support to the fact that neither Melchizedek nor Jesus had any legal rights of inheritance through their family lines.
It should also be obvious to anyone familiar with the story, that Jesus most certainly did have a father, that being God, and a mother. That being Mary. Jesus also had an adoptive father, that being Joseph.
It is also obvious that Melchizedek had a father and mother. His father being Noah, and his mother being the wife of Ham. And just as in Jesus case, Melchizedek had an adoptive father that being Ham.
If we look at the story of Noah and his three sons, it is obvious that Shem stands out as unique. It is through Shem’s line, that Eber, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob descended. In fact, both Judah, the patriarch of Kings, and Levi, the patriarch of priest descended from Shem as well.
As the Bible points out, and as proven beyond a doubt, in part 3 of this series, Melchizedek, was Canaan. Since Canaan did not descend from Shem, but instead from Noah, through the wife of Ham, he was not in line to receive what the Bible consistently calls the inheritance.
According to tribal law, Canaan was considered to be the son of Ham because he was born in the house of Ham. Even though Ham would have received a land inheritance, he would not be the recipient of any other inheritance, which is a common repeating theme of several Bible books.
In any case, Melchizedek would not even receive a land inheritance through Ham, due to the fact that he was not the biological son of Ham. Canaan like his brothers Shem, Ham, and Japheth, would have received his inheritance directly from his biological father Noah.
At Genesis 9:26 the Bible says:
“Noah declared, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.”
The word that gets translated as servant at this verse is often translated as slave in other English versions of the Bible, but the Hebrew word, ebed Strong’s H5650 doesn’t really mean the same thing as our modern words servant, employee, or slave.
To a modern English speaking person this word would simply imply that Canaan was a member of the extended family, or tribe. The word ebed as used throughout the Old Testament, is always about male members of the tribe that are not the male tribal leader, or sons of the male tribal leader.
Even though everyone alive at the time probably knew that Canaan was the biological son of Noah, they most certainly would have also known that Canaan was born after the flood, and not involved in the construction of the ark.
Everyone would have known that Canaan, was from the house of Ham, but they also would have known that he was a member of Shem’s tribe.
Just using the information that is included in the Bible combined with the actual Hebrew language text found at Genesis 9:25,26 we can know that Canaan’s family lineage would not be the same as his brothers.
“And he said Cursed Be Canaan. A servant of Servants shall he be unto his brethren And he said Blessed be the Lord God of Shem. Canaan shall be his servant.”
A more accurate rendering of this information into English would sound like this:
“Canaan’s position in the family is unlike the position of his brothers. He shall be a member of all of their families. And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem. Canaan shall be a member of Shem’s family”
In our day this distinction does not mean what it did in the ancient past. When Shem was alive, he lived under a system of tribal law, nothing at all like the legal systems that exists in our day. He would have been the family head of a very large family. Much larger than any family on Earth today. Shem lived 600 years. It is very likely that in his lifetime Shem would have been the recognized family head over thousands of descendants, representing many generations.
If we take into consideration that Noah declared Canaan to be a member of Shem’s tribe, then it could very well be said that Shem’s tribe combined with Canaan’s tribe would have represented one half of the entire population of the planet for most of his life.
Think about what these verses mean. Melchizedek was Canaan. The name Melchizedek means rightful king. Even though Canaan was declared to be the rightful king, he is also declared to be a lower ranking member of all three tribes of Noah’s sons. In other words he was not the king or prince over any of the other three tribes, even though the Bible specifically calls him the rightful king.
Currently our rightful king is Jesus. The Bible specifically calls Jesus the prince of peace. Calling Jesus prince indicates that he is the son of a king. As the only begotten son of God, that was alive in the first century, it would only make sense for God’s son to rule over the Earth. Instead he live out his entire life as a lower ranking member of humanity. In the first century, Jesus was never actually treated as a king or a prince, instead he was executed as a criminal.
In the days leading up to his death, Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey. This event is known as Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Crowds of people welcomed him as king, but neither Pilot nor Herod came out to greet him. They did not hand over their crowns, nor did they allow him to sit on their thrones. It was they who along with the Sanhedrin had Jesus executed.
Neither Jesus, nor Melchizedek were recognized as God’s appointed king or priest by the majority of humanity. In Abraham’s day, far from accepting Melchizedek’s rulership, the kings of the Earth were engaging in a war for world domination. In Jesus’ day the kings of the Earth were still engaging in the very same war.
Even now, as Jesus and his angels are preparing for their triumphal return, the kings of the Earth are still engaged in that very same war.
Being placed in Shem’s tribe by Noah, apparently had no effect on his right of inheritance either. Bible chronology clearly indicates that Shem outlived Abraham by 35 years.
It is altogether possible that when Abraham and Melchizedek met, Shem, Ham, and Jepheth were present. There is nothing anywhere in the Bible to indicate that Noah’s three sons, were ever involved in the power struggle that was being fought by their wicked descendants.
As recorded in the Bible, Noah was still alive when this war for world domination began. Try to imagine the significance of that. According to natural law as recorded in the Ten Commandments, everyone alive was given the instinctive understanding that they were to honor their fathers and mothers.
Earth wide the descendants of Noah were murdering one another over the right to rule the planet, likely while Noah was still alive.
Just like Canaan, Noah’s other sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth would have been keenly interested in how events would unfold. It is not all that far fetched to imagine that they might have traveled to the land of Canaan in order to bear witness to what was taking place. After all, by the time that Abraham met with Melchizedek, Noah was dead. At Noah’s death, rulership over the Earth would have gone to it’s family heads, Shem, Ham, Japheth and Canaan. Since Canaan is the only one called rightful king, it is likely that Canaan alone stood to inherit the position left vacant by Noah.
Just as Melchizedek was the only legitimate ruler of Earth in his day, Jesus is the only legitimate ruler of Earth in our day. As our king and priest forever Jesus’ position as head of the human family has for the most part been ignored. Human beings in our day are still engaged in mortal combat for world domination, and completely ignoring Earth’s rightful ruler.
In our day, the citizens of the nations continue to elect and support the political rulers of the Earth, even as they did back in Abraham’s day. Abraham was able to defeat several of the nations that were involved in the conflict, but even the ones that he didn’t defeat were eventually dealt with by God as he rained down fire and sulphur on Sodom and Gomorah.
God’s natural law would dictate that humans honor their father and mother. As written in the ancient past this verse would have been understood by everyone. Honoring father and mother would require that each and every person alive recognize Shem, Ham, Japheth, and Canaan as the oldest surviving members of each of the tribes of mankind. God’s natural law would dictate that no one take a stand against these four men.
The thing that is going to be important for us to understand is the reason why Melchizedek was compared to Jesus. According to mankind’s laws, Jesus like Canaan was not in line to inherit anything when he was born. Even though he was born in Joseph’s house, he was not the son of Joseph. According to mankind’s way of perceiving things, Jesus would have been the adopted son of Joseph.
According to Jesus Genealogy as recorded at Luke Chapter three, in fulfillment of prophecy, Jesus was a direct descendant of King David. However he was not a descendant of Solomon or any of the other kings that came after David. The Bible clearly records the entire history of Israel and Judah, so we know the names of every descendant of David that inherited the rulership of his kingdom.
David was promised that Jesus would come from his loins, but apparently was not told the details. The only lineage that Jesus had was through his mother Mary, a woman. Which would disqualify him from being king. And Mary’s lineage was not even part of the lineage of kings anyway.
Other than David, none of the ancestors in Luke’s genealogy ever held any positions of authority over any part of the nation. Most if not all are not even mentioned anywhere else in the Bible. That being the case, Jesus would have no basis for claiming the right of kingship over Judah through his mother’s lineage.
The other genealogy of Jesus recorded in the Bible is found in Matthew Chapter 1 Verses 1-17. Matthew’s account includes all of the Kings that descended from David, but even in this account, the right of rulership is brought into question. Matthew 1:6 says:
“Jesse was the father of King David. And David was the father of Solomon by the wife of Uriah.”
Of all of the ancestors of Jesus, mentioned in Matthew, only Solomon’s parentage is recorded in this way. According to law, Solomon was legally the son of Uriah, having been conceived while Uriah was in a covenant relationship with Bathsheba. David may have been the biological father of Solomon, but according to the Bible it was David’s firstborn legitimate son, Amnon that had the legal right to take his father’s place as King of Israel.
Solomon’s rulership would have been illegitimate, and by default the rulership of every king that descended from Solomon would have been illegitimate as well. According to law, Solomon’s legal father would not have been David, but Uriah. Uriah was not an Israelite, but a Hittite. The land of the Hittites is now known as Turkey. The son of a Hittite could never be a king over Israel.
In any case, since Joseph was not Jesus’ biological father, Jesus could not claim the kingship thru Joseph’s family line. And since no King of Israel or Judah had ever been thru the mother’s line, Jesus could not claim the kingship according to the ancestry of his mother Mary.
What I am telling you is that contrary to popular belief, God can choose whoever he wants as our savior, king, and high priest. The only law that God is bound by are the natural laws that he himself set in place. Just because the Jews thought that they were God’s chosen people, and that only men from the tribe of Judah could be acceptable kings, and that only members of the tribe of Levi could serve as high priest, God’s choosing of both Melchizedek, and Jesus, to fill those rolls proves that they were wrong. No prophecy about Jesus having the right to rule based on his family line exists anywhere in the Bible. People over the years obviously thought that there was, but that is not the case at all.
In part 7 of this series, there will be an in depth discussion of the two conflicting lineages of Jesus that are found in the New Testament. As confusing as they may seem to us reading them in English, they were not confusing at all in the oldest Greek texts of the books of Matthew and Luke.
Several prophecies about Jesus family lineage came to pass, just as God said that they would, and since the vast majority of Christians and Jews believe themselves to be racially superior, or nationalistically superior, or members of a superior religion. It is probably to be expected that somehow those beliefs would become part of the prophecies about Jesus’ genealogy.
Abraham was told that the messiah would come through him. The same promise was made to his son Isaac, Isaac’s son Jacob, Jacob’s son Judah, and eventually the promise of a seed was associated with David, and his father Jesse. No such prophecy was ever associated with Solomon or any of his descendants.
The point being that neither Canaan, nor Jesus had any kind of legal claim to the right of kingship, based on ancestry. And yet, the Bible calls both of them Kings.
The Bible clearly declares that neither Melchizedek nor Jesus, could act as priests based on their genealogies, and yet, it is more than obvious that the Bible acknowledged both as being priest.
According to Hebrews 7:9-11 Abraham, not only acknowledged Melchizedek’s office of priest to God most high, but confirmed by his actions that Melchizedek’s priesthood was superior to the Levitical priesthood that would eventually serve the nation of Israel. As the book of Hebrews plainly explains it:
“If I may say so, Levi also, who received tithes, actually payed tithes through Abraham, due to the fact that he was yet in the loins of Abraham when Melchizedek met him. Therefore, if the Levitical Priesthood which officiated over the law and the people, were perfect, what need would there be for another priest? And why would that priest be in the order of Melchizedek? And why would that priest not be in the order of Aaron?”
The Book of Hebrews is pointing out a very important thing for us to consider. As special as the Levites may have thought they were, each and every one of them had been required to pay tithes to Melchizedek while they were still in the loins of Abraham. It could be said that every tithe ever paid to the Levites in reality had been payed years in advance to Melchizedek. Making the Jewish religion perpetually subservient to the priesthood of Melchizedek.
As I said earlier, the Jews were sticklers for every letter of the law, although they never really seemed to pay much attention to the more important things. Over the course of time thousands upon thousands of volumes have been produced about every aspect of the tiniest details regarding their religious rituals. There is no way that they could have missed the fact that Abraham the father of their nation, paid tithes to Melchizedek. The founding father as well as the biological father of the Canaanites.
Since according to the Law of Moses, tithes were only to be paid to the Levites, someone somewhere at some time in Jewish history had to have wondered why the father of their nation would pay tithes to someone that very obviously was not a Levite. Someone who was not a Jew. Someone who was not even of the Hebrew race. They had to have wondered why Abraham the father of their race would pay tithes to the Father of their enemies, the Canaanites.
How could a non Jew, who in fact was the father of a nation, that they considered to be their enemies, be referred to in their own copies of the Tanakh, as the priest of God most high, and the rightful king?
Hebrews 7:12-16 demands that we consider this:
“If there has been a change in the priesthood, then there would by necessity have to be a change to the entire law. The one of whom these things are spoken belonged to another tribe, from which no one has ever served at the altar. It is evident that our Lord came to his end among the tribe of Judah, and in connection with that tribe Moses said nothing about priests. This is even more evident when the priest that arises, is in the likeness of Melchizedek, who receives his office, not on the basis of a legal requirement based on genealogy, but by the power of an indestructible life”
At Hebrews 7:4-10, before writing these words the writer wrote this.
“Do you see how great this man was to whom Abraham the patriarch gave a tenth of the spoils? The descendants of Levi who receive the priestly office, have a commandment in the law to take tithes from the people, that is, from their own brothers, even though these are descended from Abraham just as they are. But Melchizedek who did not descend from them received tithes from Abraham and blessed him who had been given the promise. It is undeniable that the inferior is always blessed by the superior. In the one case tithes are received by mortal men, but in the other case, by one of whom it is testified that he lives.”
When God delivered the Israelites out of Egypt, he offered them the opportunity to return to living by natural law. But when Moses brought them that law, which we today call the ten commandments they rejected it. Moses returned to the mountain to receive a different set of laws, more to their liking.
Ezekiel 20:11-25 puts it like this:
“I gave them my decrees and made known to them my laws, by which the person who obeys them could live. But they rejected those laws, so I gave them worthless statutes and laws through which they could not live.”
The two laws that Ezekiel was talking about were the Ten Commandments, and The Law Of Moses. Man was not made to live by unnatural rules and regulations. As created, man, just like all of God’s other creatures, was perfectly designed to live according to natural law. Every man made law that has ever existed has been wicked. According to the Bible, even the “Law Of Moses” was an unnatural system of wicked rules, by which no man could live.
Even so, many to this day believe that the Law of Moses, was somehow different or superior to the laws of the nations that surrounded Israel. But according to the Bible the only law that has ever been pleasing to God is natural law. The law that God personally carved into stone with his own finger.
In defense of religious doctrines, many will point to the words of Jesus himself. As recorded at Matthew 5:17 Jesus said, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”
The way that this verse is presented by many of the religions of man, makes it seem as if Jesus’ death would somehow fulfill one of God’s greatest desires. To witness mankind torturing and murdering his son. The gods of most of mankind’s religions are bloodthirsty. To the fools that believe in such gods, ritual human sacrifice somehow, makes perfect sense.
However that is not at all what Matthew 5:17 is about. In verse 18 Jesus specifically stated that the law would be done away with on the day that heaven and earth were done away with.
Since most people understand that heaven and earth are not going to be done away with they by default conclude that the law is not going to be done away with either. The problem with that theory is that there are many verses in the Bible which confirm for a fact that heaven and earth are going to be done away with.
Matthew 24:35 says: “Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but my words will never pass away.
The churches have no explanation for this concept, but it is actually quite easy to explain, using nothing more than a very basic understanding of the words that are translated as heaven and earth. Ouranos (Strong’s G3772) and Ge (Strong’s G1093).
Ouranos, which gets translated into our English word Heaven, actually means the part of heaven that we can see from our relative positions, here on Earth. Ge which gets translated as our English word Earth, isn’t actually related to our English word Earth in any way.
It is a commonly known fact that when Jesus was alive the stars that he could see from Judea were not the stars that can be seen from Judea currently. Mankind has been producing star charts for thousands of years as navigational aids for sea going vessels, and for the tracking of time. The star charts from Jesus day do not match star charts from our day. The religion of science states that the reason for the variation in star charts is based on a natural process knows as procession of the equinoxes.
It may be that Jesus was referring to this procession of the equinoxes, but according to the religion of science this process takes place slowly over thousands of years. However around the world cultures left evidence that the entire night sky changed right around the time of Jesus’ death. If that is the case, it would explain the earthquake that took place at Jesus’ death, and then again the one that took place three days later.
The word ge, that gets translated into our English word Earth, actually means “land” “the land” or “the land of” as in the land of Judea, or the land of Sodom. In other words how the land is divided up, or who is allowed to inhabit certain parts of the land. Once again, these verses are not about the planet disappearing but instead about changes to the lay of the land.
When Jesus said that the law would not be done away with until heaven and earth were done away with, it was not a promise that the law would remain forever as the Churches claim, but a sure promise that very soon God will restore his planet, and his solar system and destroy all of mankind’s wicked legal systems, including whatever remains of “The Law of Moses”. And he would accomplish this all in a single day. Keep in mind, that according to the law, only male members of the Tribe of Levi could officiate as priests. Legally, Jesus was not a Levite.
The offer held out thousands of years ago, to the nation of Israel to the people that God rescued from Egyptian servitude, will soon be held out to each and every one of us. The only way for mankind to return to God’s natural law is to do away with all unnatural laws.
Hebrews 8:13 records it this way:
“Just by speaking about a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear.”
Although most associate the Law of Moses, with religion, that is not what the Law of Moses was about. For a fact, The Law of Moses was the recognized legal system of a nation. Just like our current legal systems, it dealt with things such as murder, theft, inheritance, taxes, also known as tithes, clothing, and food. Just like the laws of every nation on Earth today.
The law of Moses was no more of a religious law than the current legal systems that humans currently have to live by. Laws that allow someone to kill humans in a war, but do not allow people to kill during the commission of a crime are very similar to the legal systems of most nations. The law to build a parapet around any occupied, elevated, space that is found at Deuteronomy 22:8, is no different than similar laws found in current building codes. The law not to eat unclean animals is not really any different than laws set in place by the FDA.
When Jesus returns, he, just as Melchizedek, will become both the rightful king and priest of the most high God. He will not be establishing a new system of nonsensical religious rules and rituals to signify his appointment as High Priest. He will not rule over his subjects using any of the methods used by Satan’s, oppressive Kings, Prime Ministers, Presidents, Emperors, or other Bullies.
Hebrews 5:12 highlights just how important it is to understand the roll of Melchizedek, and how it relates to the roll of Jesus.
“At this time you should all be teachers, but instead you seem to once again, need someone to teach you the most basic principles of God’s truth. You are similar to little babies that have to drink milk because they can’t eat solid food.”
The words of this verse may seem harsh, but when the Book of Hebrews was written the Bible records that many in the congregation were still arguing over whether or not to get circumcised. What foods were kosher, and what foods were not. Which rituals to participate in, and which ones to avoid. People in the first century were struggling with the same nonsense that religious people continue to struggle with today.
Keep in mind what is written at Hebrews 8:13:
“Just by speaking about a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear.”
Go back and read that for yourselves once again. As is recorded here in the Book of Hebrews “Just by God speaking of a new covenant, he does away with the old covenant” In other words, just knowing that God is soon going to rid the world of mankind’s wicked laws forever, makes us free from any religious observance of those laws.
We are all still under some form of human law, no mater where we live. We can choose to disobey those laws if we wish, but should we do so, we risk suffering the punishment associated with breaking those laws. However, there were many hundreds of laws that Jesus had to be obedient to in his day, that are no longer enforced in our day. Many Christian, and Jewish Religious laws are purely ritualistic now, and are no longer part of the legal systems of the nations. It is up to us to try to figure out how to live, so as to be safe, as we dwell amongst those who support Satan’s laws, whether religious or official.
2Peter 2:20 put it this way:
“For if after they have escaped the pollution of the world, through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the later end is worse with them than the beginning.”
The religions of Christianity present this verse as if it is about escaping “sex, drugs, and rock n roll” and then returning to those things. I can promise you that it is not. The entire 2 chapter of 2Peter is specifically about escaping religion, and then returning to it. It is no wonder that Christendom does not want us to know what these verses are really about. Christianity is every bit as much of a religion as 1st Century Judaism. In fact many Christian religions are nothing more than Judaism with a Crucified Messiah.
In comparing Melchizedek to Jesus we can get a much clearer understanding of basic Bible truth than any of the members of the various cults of man.
That being the case, it would be good to review all of the information available to us in the Bible about Melchizedek, and compare that information to what we know about Jesus.
First off, we need to understand that the only human government that God designed mankind to live under, is the family. That being the case, all of us should be able to figure out that the father of everyone alive on Earth is God. Hence, each and every one of us should look to God, our heavenly father, as the only one who truly has the right to be our ruler. No politician has ever done a better job of ruling the world than our creator.
Proof that the family is the only hierarchy ever approved by God can be found in the ten commandments. Exodus 20:12 says:
Honour thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
That word honor in Hebrew is used to describe how citizens treat their those who outrank them.
Ephesians 6:2 which is part of the New Testament emphasizes the importance of this commandment.
Each of the sons of Noah had a human wife. Canaan was born of Ham’s wife. Biologically Ham was not the father of Canaan. Noah was. At the time, Noah was the father of everyone alive on Earth. According to God’s law to honor our father and mother, Noah would have been the rightful King over all of the Earth.
Joseph had a human wife named Mary. Jesus was born of Mary. Biologically Joseph was not the father of Jesus. God was. God is the father of everyone alive on the Earth. God is the rightful king over everyone alive on the Earth.
Noah was Melchizedek’s father through the wife of his son Ham.
God was Jesus’ father through the wife of Joseph.
Melchizedek was made a King and Priest because either his father Noah declared him to be a King and Priest, or because God declared him to be a king and priest. Noah had at least three other sons that could have been chosen.
Abraham the founding father of the nation of Israel and ruler of his tribe, paid tithes or taxes to Melchizedek. Melchizedek did not pay tithes or taxes to Abraham, who was the victor in the “War of Peleg”.
The founding fathers of the nations and rulers of those nations will be made to pay tithes or taxes to God. That tax will be in the form of their lives. As says:
“The wage that sin pays is death.”
Jesus will not be paying tithes or taxes to the leaders of the current world empire.
This is an important thing to know. When asked at Matthew 17:24-27 about the temple tax Jesus clearly explained that he was exempt because taxes are not collected from sons, but from others.
The words tithes, taxes, and tribute all describe the exact same thing. They are all payments made to an organization or individual based on nothing more than position in a hierarchy. People may perceive tithes taxes and tribute as payment for goods and services, but that is not at all true.
When the war of Peleg was concluded, Melchizedek provided nourishment in the form of bread and wine. After Armageddon our nourishment will be provided by Jesus.
In Abraham’s day there were many political leaders who stood in opposition to Melchizedek. They are all called kings, but only Melchizedek is called the rightful king.
In our day there are many political leaders. But The Bible consistently refers to Jesus as The Christ while referring to all others as false Christs.
In Abraham’s day Canaan’s position as rightful king was rejected by the citizens of Sodom and Gomorah in favor of selfish, aggressive, politicians. Jesus the rightful king was revealed to mankind in the first century and rejected just as Canaan was. Even now, nearly 2,000 years later, selfish, aggressive men and women continue to have the support of the citizens of Lord Satan’s Empire.
God’s Kingdom will soon replace Satan’s Empire forever. Even now, world leaders are working diligently to prepare for the return of Satan their chosen king. In a short while God will expose their chosen King for what he is, as billions follow him to their deaths. We will witness God’s Judgment with our own eyes.
Psalms 110:1,4 has this to say:
“The Lord sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies! The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind, “You are a priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek.”
Jesus was sent to rule in the midst of his enemies. Those enemies being the very people that he was sent to rule over. The Earth will still (for the most part) be populated by the enemies of Jesus when he returns.
According to the Book of Hebrews the Levites basically purchased their priestly office through Abraham, from the true ruler of their land Canaan. All of Israel was called the land of Canaan because the Israelites dwelt in Canaan’s land. Just as Abraham had been called an alien resident of Canaan, the Israelite priesthood which descended from Abraham by default would have been alien residents themselves. Their priesthood was by covenant agreement, and not according to natural law.
Currently all of Satan’s Kings and priest are acting as kings and priests over a land in which Satan their true ruler is an alien resident.
Keep in mind what is recorded at Hebrews 7:12.
“If there is a change of priesthood, by default there would by necessity have to be a change of the law.”
The law of Moses, and in fact the laws of all human rulers will be done away with forever when Christ returns. The only law that will be left remaining is God’s natural law. And according to that law, our only legal ruler, is and always has been Jesus Christ.
In Part 9 of this series, we will find out why no man, other than Jesus, can ever legitimately ruler over humanity.
Jesus’ priesthood would break the Law of Moses. Jesus kingship would break Jewish tradition. Jesus priesthood and kingship would actually break every human law and tradition that has existed ever since Satan tricked Eve into leaving off natural law in order to enter into his unnatural covenant law.
As 1John 3:10 says:
“In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.”
It should be obvious that all of us have been created by God, including Satan, however, it is also obvious that many of the people created by God choose to be followers of Satan and supporters of civilization.
No matter how much power Satan’s chosen rulers may seem to have they will never be anything more than alien residents of God’s Kingdom. Their rulership is not legitimate. They are invaders. They must be removed from the Earth and sent to where they belong.
Religious people often refer to being removed from the Earth a rapture. So it could be said that very soon all religious people are going to get raptured along with their father, the founder of religion.
Satan and the supporters of his civilization, do not belong here.
If you don’t want to survive, don’t listen to me.
