AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK
AND THE PRIESTHOOD OF THE MAN OF
Melchizedek is the
symbolic name of Yahshua when He met Abraham and He offered
bread and wine, the “Holy Supper”; Genesis:14:17-20, Psalm
110:4. Later in the letter to the Hebrews 5:10;6:20; 7:17; & 7:1
is recognized as such.
however, isn’t for his own
salvation, neither for others. Salvation priesthood is exclusive
of the Messiah, the salvation of souls, which I will call: the
essence of the priesthood or the first part of the priesthood of
Melchizedek. Melchizedek-Yahshua priest for ever, fulfilled in
the cross, once and forever, that priesthood, beating death and
resurrecting to return to the Heavens, and
us eternal life to share with Him. For this, it was
necessary that we were transformed in a new being, born again,
with a new mind and new spiritual body that lives and enjoys the
presence of God in His dimension.
Man has received
from God the capacity to be a priest, because God is. But, how
can man become a priest according to the order of Melchizedek if
this priesthood has been fulfilled? Yahshua has opened the door
that was closed, when He torn the veil of the Most Holy, when He
died in the cross, so that when we accept Him as saviour, His
blood (which is life, and represents the Spirit) cleans us of
our human and sinful essence, and makes us saints by dressing us
of Him, which takes us to the new birth to the Spirit, and
changes our minds. With this access to God, what man can
now, once saved, is to become part of the rest of the
work of the Messiah, the intercession for the people of God who
are in the world.
within his reach the
invitation of Yahshua, the Master, to sacrifice his own life,
every day, by the offering for others. Yahshua asks us to share
that yoke that He carries, to “intercede” for men. This part of
the priesthood is shown
to us in Gethsemane, when Yahshua accepts to drink the
glass of the bitterness of sin in our behalf. Luck 22:39 to 46.
However, the word
priest before God, has different functions, one of them is
sacrificer as this is what the priest did in religion as a
ritual to repair the relation of man with God, to clean the sin
of man; it’s root is “sacro” which ends in the word sacrifice.
In the Law of God the sacrificing priest is ordered to offer an
animal for thanks giving or to clean men from sin; the target is
to make others who are people of God but are far from him
spiritually, to be brought closer to God and receive presence of
the Spirit. Also the priest is who “intercedes”,
another word that comes from inter-cede, where to cede is to
die, and inter, is in the place of;
so who intercedes dies in the place of another. An animal life
in the place of the life of a person, so that it can carry on
living, because …the wages of sin is death… and in fact
we will all die;
then resurrection for
the judgment. This sacrifice would be continuous and useless,
because it doesn’t change the mind of man.
The priesthood of
the Messiah, does change people because it makes the Spirit of
God come inside them, when we receive Him, and
once and for all
the eternal sacrifice has been fulfilled, being the
Author of life, giving His life and taking it back. Yahshua is
the Priest for excellence, the Master of the souls of men and
women who have been made in spirit to His likeness.
Up to here we have
studied the first priesthood, the one of the Messiah for
salvation, and the one of the Messiah to bring the love of the
Father and the unity with the Holy Spirit.
Now we will study
the second priesthood, the priesthood of man who comes under the
yoke to share it with the Messiah, where one accepts the burden
of the sadness of the Father and of the Messiah in what we could
call the altar of the priesthood, which is for another soul to
be hugged by God in the priest’s place, the priest asks to be
carried with the burden of another, to carry it next to the
Messiah, this way the brother or brothers for which he offers,
by being set free from their burdens, and as they love God and
miss his presence, are going to experience being closer to God.
Really it doesn’t mean that God will be closer, but that the
person can perceive Him better by being free of his oppression
and the typical worries of life and of the world. And who has
offered will carry the burdens of those who are body of the
Messiah, and will see himself in the same yoke with Him. Truly
carrying the burdens with God. What a privilege to love like God
loves!, even with our limitation. To be where You are my Lord,
my Husband, You gave your life for me.
not a ritual of religion; it’s not done in public, but
before God and being in the Messiah for love to others, every
day. Only God and who offers know about it, and instead the
blessing of God is received by those for whom
the priest offers with the Messiah, these are the people
of God, the wife, each in particular.
In 1John 3:16 we
clearly find how the Word of God guides us to it: …Hereby
perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for
us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren…
that it doesn’t say for our neighbor, but for the brethren.
Important; we must differentiate between prayer for every one,
good works for our neighbor and the sacrifice of our soul in
spirit, to liberate a brother of the oppression of the system
and from his own “self”, so they are free to come closer to the
Lord; the power to bring paradise to the brethren. In this text
in 1John, in the Greek text where we read
“lives”, originally we find: “psique”-souls-
…lay down your souls for the brethren. Then it follows by: …17But
whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need,
and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth
the love of God in him?...
little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but
in deed and in truth.
THREE PARTS OF MAN’S PRIESTHOOD
1.- To preach the
Gospel of salvation to others.
2.- To pray for our
neighbour so that God brings the blessing to those whom
we know need Him, so the may come to know God and believe in
salvation by Yahshua the Messiah, and change their lives now,
and so those who are people of God, are not lost. To help the
neighbour with money, food, medicines, moral help and dress.
The majority of people get to do as
far as this, or should do or have heard that some do. The
culmination of the priesthood is to lay down our souls in the
Messiah before God, our spirit, our lives, physical and
spiritual to carry the burdens that each of us can carry; this
God knows, sharing with the Messiah, the high priest, the
intersection that He does, this is why He invites us to His
yoke, so that those who are His body, who love Him, receive
spiritual blessing, that feel strongly the presence and the love
of God. To …Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil
the law of Christ.
Each of us
will carry his own cross, but the other disciples
between them can help one to carry the burdens of another for
love to the Messiah.
Those who have
experienced the power to love like God, will do it
the rest of their lives. You know, by carrying the yoke
of the Messiah, which is power of God. …For
my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew
Those who have felt
that a brother has offered for them have understood that this is
a reality and that it brings the blessing of God. It’s like if
God had liberated you from all burdens and will bring you next
to Him specially.
you is blessing. What are you waiting for? Lay down you
life to God, for the brethren in the faith, specially for those
you don’t love, because if you only do it for those you love,
what’s your merit, the Holy Spirit suggests it.
The wife of the
Messiah, this body of holy priests, every person that wants to
carry his own cross and follow Him,
becomes a complement
of the Messiah. He is already bringing the presence of the
Spirit (…I will not leave you orphans, without spiritual
Father, without guide, I will send another counsellor…) to
those who have received Him by the gift of faith. No one that
has known this doubts it. But we also have within our reach to
bring this blessing to our brothers and to Yahshua, because God
has made us heirs with the Messiah and
partakers of the
Eternal Kingdom, where love remains.
is the eternal priest Who feeds the priesthood so that men’s
priesthood becomes true and useful, by Him being in eternity,
and because we are given the power to bring a bit of eternity
for a bit of time; even before He comes in His kingdom. We can
enjoy an advance of the Kingdom of God, now and here, not having
to wait after death or
caught up. The
Promised Land is a brother if he receives God and builds up in
Spirit, this land-soul, distills …milk and honey… the
love of God, which is the promise of God over it.
Its part of the
essence of those who want to become people of God, and it’s open
to every person of any race or origin that seeks the only and
universal God who is called Jesus Christ, or Emmanuel, which
means: God with us, Yahweh or Jehovah, Yahshua or Yeshua.
Isaiah 9:6 y 7:14
and also I am o I will be, with you; was the answer to Moses,
about His name.
The door to God is
closed to humanity, it is necessary to come in through that
door. The door is Yahshua and the way is Yahshua, and the Life
is Yahshua. Without Yahshua there is no access to God. This is
the condition of God for human salvation. The only way
He has to make us humble is to die for us. To try to justify
ourselves takes us nowhere.
Even more; he who tries becomes anti-Christ by not accepting Him
as Saviour. It is not possible for man to justify before God.
This is the Gospel: He who believes in Him will be saved. I
mention this again just in case there is still any doubt.
are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. 15Henceforth
I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his
lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I
have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
Yahshua calls us His friends, the same as the Father called
Abraham His friend, the only one that was with MELCHIZEDEK,
MESIAH and called him my friend. He had bread and wine with his
Master, and learned the priesthood of intersection.
now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up
that which is behind of the afflictions
of Christ in my flesh for
his body’s sake, which is the church.
ye shall be unto me

beseech you therefore, brethren, by
the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a
living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God,
your reasonable service.

upon the throne of the house of Israel; 18Neither
shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to
offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do
sacrifice continually. "Priests" Jeremiah 33:17 & 18.

where we go with the Messiah in the yoke of the priesthood.
Think for a minute
that all the members of the body of the Messiah offered God
their souls, to intercede for Yahshua, our High Priest, our
Lord, who carries the burdens of all His people; I think that
day the Kingdom of God would come.
In eternity, as my
brothers are free of their bodies of death, and the influence of
the world in their minds, have no temptation of anything, only
love one another, as we won’t receive burdens from any one.
Priests forever with no burdens. The Messiah has triumphed.
Glory to His name.
Abel was a priest
and offered God a lamb as a symbol of the Lamb of God. He did
not offer his works, the fruit of his personal effort, as this
is symbol of works of cult and fulfilment, of belonging to a
religion or to the personal human moral. Cain does justify
himself by his Works. But pay attention to this: Cain killed
Abel. The man of moral or religion or science, kills the Messiah
in Golgotha because he is anti-Christ, because he does not like
to deny himself and become humble. Praise Him, who made himself
humble, and humiliated being King of the Universe; He became
poor and humble man and carried the sin of the world, which He
never did. How wouldn’t I love
you with all my soul Lord! Thank You…
