In this discussion we overview the Davidic and Zadok heritage of Yahushua Melchizedek, YHVH’s Great Redeemer, through his mother Miriam, and how this heritage is part of His lawful earthly qualification of the office of High Priest of the Melchizedek order. This human heritage, together with His Divinely begotten heritage from His Heavenly Father lawfully constitutes  His Heavenly High Priest Melchizedek order (an order of service that is eternal having no end ).  Understanding how His unique  human priestly heritage forms an integral part of the qualification of the promised redemptive physical seed of Eve which is able to lawfully stand against the serpent, serves to increase our grasp of the complete confidence that is given to the Redeemed of YHVH,  when the true biblical definition of YHVH’s Good News of the Kingdom is fully understood and accurately proclaimed.

In the course of the discussion we consider what the written Law of Moses and the Prophets declare concerning the Zadok priesthood and how the biblical writ exposes the ancient-modern Talmudic Rabbinical Pharisee mythologies of the Zadok priesthood.  Despite archaeological evidence, it becomes clear that these mythologies were historically constructed because of vested religious interests to discredit any biblical authority to  the  Zadok priesthood being acknowledged throughout Judah’s ancient-modern rabbinical religious memory, in much the same way that Yahushua Melchizedek and the Apostles have been historically discredited.  In brief,  the Rabbinic mythologies of the identity and history of the  Zadok priesthood  proclaims that the Zadoks were 1) the  Sadducees (which they were not) and 2) that they were Hellenistic imposters of the authentic Aaronic order (which they were not).

In contrast to the Rabbinical mythology, what is actually written in the Law of Moses and the biblical Prophets concerning the Zadoks’ ancient historical past and their prophesied future of priesthood service in the coming messianic millennial era, paints a very different picture.

When the Rabbinical proclamations are examined in the light of what is actually written in scripture and with the Zadok’s own primary resource documents (miraculously preserved for us today in the Qumran library), all Rabbinic conclusions (together with the opposite polemic of orthodox Christian proclamations on who the “Essenes” were),  are immediately exposed to have no biblical ground whatsoever, and are but religious attempts by both side of the polemic to distort, mystify, and cover up, with the motivation to both justify and maintain their own religious hegemony of the Kingdom of YHVH through their constructed eschatologies! Even the final releasing of the Qumran scrolls suffered under the greatest academic scandal of the 20th Century – being kept secret from the public for 6 decades !    Indeed Yahushua declared that the Kingdom of YHVH would suffer violence from the agendas of religious men, who through the centuries have worked to impose corrupt replacement systematic theologies to ensure their ownership and control over the Kingdom and biblical truth, with the goal being the continued enslavement of YHVH’s people.

The revealing of the Zadok testimony in these days is thus no less than a Divine miracle and “last days” trumpet blast from Heaven above.  The call now is to all men who claim to follow YHVH,  to carefully examine the foundations of their theological presumptions and to repent where it may be found that such presumptions have added to or taken away from what is written in the Word of YHVH.  It is the Book of Hebrews that exhorts even the last generation to make every effort to enter into YHVH’s millennial “Rest” that is appointed for His Redeemed!

This discussion presents a brief overview of substantive principles found written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets concerning the Zadok heritage. These being that the Zadok priesthood :-

  • Are direct descendants of the line of Aaron, qualified by Divine covenant to make acceptable blood offerings before YHVH.

  • Have been Divinely given an eternal (without end) covenantof intimate high order service to YHVH.

  • Will be restored to complete their service in the coming millennial reign,  where only they will attend directly to YHVH’s “Table” .

  • Will hold a singular distinctive and authoritative ministry to the Redeemed Nation in the millennial messianic era, to be YHVH’s judges, teachers and ordained declarers of what is profane and what is set apart, what is clean and unclean, and (contrary to religious calendars proclamations of men), they will declare the Divine worship calendar.

The discussion concludes with the exhortation to renew our vision of the true biblical Gospel of the Kingdom of Yahushua Melchizedek, which He has called us to faithfully proclaim to all the cities across the globe where exiled biblical Israel has been scattered to this day.  It is vital in theses last days  that we make sure we carry an accurate biblical understanding of the Good News of the Kingdom and what the prophetic scriptures actually reveal concerning the process of how Yahushua Melchizedek’s lawful redemption and birth of the millennial called-out righteous nation will unfold, for in these last days many traditional  eschatologies are already being increasingly found wanting and falling very short of truth. Failure to properly know and understand biblical eschatology  may cause a great many to become disillusioned and stumble in their faith when the time of the birth pangs begin…

Much is to be gained therefore if we have proper understanding of Yahushua Melchizedek’s authenticGospel of the Kingdom , to be the witnesses to it that we are called to, in obedience of our King’s command.  Not only that but we will also be personally baruch by such understanding in 1)  to be able to pray that we will be found worthy to stand in the coming dark days, and 2) increased personal confidence with clarity of vision , and  3) our spiritual gift of discernment will be strengthened to keep us from the deceptions and shortcomings of the range of  confused “kingdom theologies” and eschatologies that exist across the divide of the historical Rabbinic-Roman Christian religious polemic.

A true biblical understanding of YHVH’s Good News of the Kingdom renews our joy and strengthens our spiritual ability to hear how we are being called to prepare to be part of the  “wise virgins” that Yahushua Melchizedek prophesied would arise in the last days.   He prophesied these “wise virgins”would be enlightened by having enough “oil in their lamps” to guide them in their  necessary final preparations that will enable them to be ready for His gathering Angels,  immediately before the coming of our Great Redeemer-King, Yahushua Melchizedek, who will cover them under the “shadow of His Wings” in that day of great darkness and judgement that is fast approaching the kingdoms of men.

Esteem, Honor  and Praise to Yahushua Melchizedek, The Great Redeemer of YHVH, who comes in the Name of YHVH to “restore all things”!

Yeshua is both High King of Heaven and High Priest of Heaven!

We know from the Tanakh Scriptures that Yeshua the Messiah is the physical
fulfillment of the family line of king David. But Yeshua the Messiah is also
the physical fulfillment of the highest order of the Zadok high priest family
line of the Aaronic Priesthood! Biblical scripture evidence confirms this Truth!
This book seeks to clearly prove that Yeshua, through His earthly blood line and
the genetics from His mother Miriam, physically fulfilled the highest position
and order of the Zadok high priest family line of the Aaronic Priesthood.

Yeshua, King Priest Perfection, both from Heaven and also in the physical!
Beginning around 1993, God began slowly revealing to me this great mystery
piece by piece, and step by step. I am still receiving revelations of these Truths
regarding this King Priest mystery, which gives a much greater understanding,
not just foundations, but also of our divine Authority as priests and sons of God
in the Order of the Melchi Zedek (My King of Righteousness) Priesthood!

To see and understand these Truths more clearly, I will first list some of
the Messianic Scripture prophesies of the Tanakh which reveal that the coming
Messiah was prophesied to be the fulfillment of both the seed of king David and
also He would come from the seed of the Zadok high priest family of Aaron.
I will then comment on some of these Old Testament Scripture prophesies.

Genesis 3:15 (the Seed of woman)
“And I will put enmity between you (serpent) and the woman (Eve),
and between your seed and her Seed. He (the Messiah from her Seed)
shall bruise your head, and you (serpent) shall bruise His heal.”
Messiah would come from the Seed of woman, and destroy Satan!

Genesis 14:18-20
And Melchi Zedek (my King of Righteousness), King of Salem, brought
forth bread and wine; and He was Priest of God Most High. And He blessed
him (Abram), and said, “Blessed be Abram of God Most High, possessor
of heaven and earth. And blessed be God Most High, who has delivered
your enemies into your hand.” And he (Abram) gave Him tithes of all.
This Seed, carried in the loins of Abram, is blessed and anointed with
a King Priest Anointing by a Mystery Man (Yeshua), who appears to Abram
in Genesis 14:18, and who is announced with three King Priest titles.
Genesis 22:2,8,10-14,15-18
Then He (God) said, “Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love,
[this is the first mention of ‘love’ in the bible] and go to the land of Moriah, and
offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I will tell you.”
And Abraham said, “My son, God, Himself, will provide a lamb
for a burnt offering.” So they went both of them together… And Abraham
stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son. And the Angel
of the LORD called to him out of heaven, and said, “Abraham, Abraham,”
and he said, “Here I am.” And He said, “Do not lay your hand upon the lad,
neither do anything to him, for now I know that you fear God, seeing that
you have not withheld your son, your only son from Me.” And Abraham
lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a
thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered him
up for a burnt offering instead of his son. And Abraham called the name
of that place ‘Jehovah Jireh’… And the Angel of the LORD called to
Abraham out of heaven the second time, and said, “By Myself I have sworn,
says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld
your son, your only son, that in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying
I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which
is upon the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate of your enemies.
And in your Seed (Messiah) all the nations of the earth shall be blessed,
because you have obeyed My voice.” [Angel = Messenger, Malack in Hebrew]

The Angel of the LORD, which is God Himself, the second Person of
the Godhead, speaks to Abraham, I believe implying that because of Abraham’s
obedience to God to sacrifice his only son Isaac whom he loves, that God would
someday offer Himself as the Lamb Atonement sacrifice from Abraham’s
Seed, for the Salvation of the future generations of Abraham’s children.
Perhaps the Angel of the LORD is also saying that because of his obedience
to God and the love of this father for his son, and also the great Love of our
Father and His Son for lost humanity, that He, the Son, would one day come
to earth and be that Seed and that Lamb Sacrifice for all humanity.

Exodus 6:16,18,20,23
And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations;
Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari. And the sons of Kohath: Amram, and Izhar,
and Hebron, and Uzziel. And Amram took him Jochebed his father’s sister
to wife; and she bare him Aaron and Moses. And Aaron took him Elisheva,
daughter of Amminadab, sister of Nahshon, (heads of the tribe of Judah) to
wife; (Numbers 1:7) and she bare him Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.
Aaron is from the tribe of Levi, and his wife Elisheva is from the tribe of Judah.
Aaron had four sons, the beginning of the Aaronic Priesthood. And these
four sons were genetically from two tribes; Levi and Judah. Through Aaron
they were from the tribe of Levi, and through Aaron’s wife Elisheva, they were
from the tribe of Judah. This knowledge is a key to this King Priest mystery.
The line of kings comes from Judah, and the line of priests comes from Levi.

1Kings 4:1,4
King Solomon was king over all Israel. Zadok and Abiathar were the priests.

1Kings 2:26,27
And king Solomon said to Abiathar the priest, “You get to Anathoth, to your
own fields; for you are worthy of death. But I will not at this time put you to
death, because you bore the Ark of the Lord GOD before David my father, and
because you had been afflicted in all that my father was afflicted.” So Solomon
removed Abiathar from being priest to the LORD; that he might fulfill the word
of the LORD, which He spoke about the house of (high priest) Eli in Shiloh.

Ezekiel 44:15,16,23,24
“But the priests, the Levites, the sons of Zadok, who kept charge of My
Sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from Me, they shall come
near Me to minister to Me. And they shall stand before Me to offer to Me
the fat and the blood,” says the Lord GOD. “They shall enter My Sanctuary,
and they shall come near My table to minister to Me. And they shall keep
My charge.” “In controversy they shall stand as judges, and judge it according
to My statutes… and keep My laws…” (see Ezekiel 40:46; 45:3,4; 48:10,11)

King David had two high priests, Zadok and Abiathar. When Solomon
became King, he removed Abiathar and kept Zadok and his sons in authority
as God’s appointed high priests (of sons of Eleazar) of the Jerusalem Temple.
The Zadok high priests remained in authority from the days of king Solomon
to about 160 B.C. Then the Zadok priests were removed from their authority
as high priests of the Temple by the Maccabees. With the removal of Zadok
priests from the Jerusalem Temple, the Aaronic priesthood became corrupted;
this removal was a direct violation of God’s Word written in Ezekiel 40 – 48.
For about 840 years (1000 BC to 160 BC) the family of Zadok had been the
high priests, in authority of the Aaronic Priesthood in the Jerusalem Temple.

Ezekiel 43:18,19
And He said to me, “Son of man, thus says the Lord GOD, ‘These are
the ordinances for the Altar on the day when it is made, for sacrificing burnt
offerings on it, and for sprinkling blood on it. You shall give a young bull
for a sin offering to the priests, the Levites, who are of the seed of Zadok,
who approach Me to minister to Me,’ ” says the Lord GOD.

From the Messianic prophesies the religious Jews believed there would be
two different Messiah’s, ‘the Suffering Servant’ and ‘the Conquering King’.
They did not understand that Messiah’s lineage would be from two families and
from two tribes, from the high priest family of Zadok of the Aaronic Priesthood
and from the family line of king David; and that He would also come two times.
He would come first as the humble Priest of God, from the Zadok high priest
family of Aaron (and of course also being from the family line of king David),
who would offer Himself as the Lamb Sacrifice, giving His own sinless Body
and Blood for all the sins of humanity. And then the Messiah would come
again, this time as ‘the King of Glory’, the Promised Son of king David.
These Truths will now be shown from the Messianic Scripture prophesies.

Isaiah 16:5
“In Mercy the Throne will be established, and One shall sit on it
in Truth within the Tent of David, Judging and seeking Justice,
and hastening Righteousness.” [King Priest, the Messiah, Son of David!]
This prophesy reveals a great mystery because it shows that the King who
Reigns on this Throne in the Tent (Ohel) of David has to also be High Priest!
The Tent of David was the place where the Ark of the Covenant was kept,
and where only the high priest Zadok and other Aaronic priests could enter.
Levites could never enter, except when the Kohath Levites would carry the
covered Ark. Levites were never allowed to look at the uncovered Ark! You
can read my paper on this subject, called, ‘KING PRIEST AUTHORITY!’
Leviticus 16:2,13; Numbers 3:10; Numbers 4:15,19,20; Numbers 18:3,7
This King who Reigns on this Throne within the Tent of David is also
the High Priest of Heaven; He is the King Priest, Melchi Zedek, my King of
Righteousness; Yeshua, Priest of God Most High! All ‘born again’ believers
(of the Order of the Melchi Zedek Priesthood)… [and the sons of Zadok]
can minister in King Priest Yeshua’s presence within the Tent of David.

Isaiah 52:10,13-15
The LORD has made bare His Holy Arm in the eyes of all the nations;
and all the ends of the earth shall see the Salvation of our God. Behold,
My Servant shall deal prudently, He shall be exalted and extolled,
and be very high. As many were astonished at Him; His visage was so marred
more than any man, and His form more than the sons of men. So shall He
sprinkle many nations (with His Blood); kings shall shut their mouths at Him,
for that which had not been told them they shall see; and that which they had
not heard they shall consider.

Isaiah 53:1-12
Who has believed our report? And to whom is the Arm of the LORD
revealed? For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root
out of dry ground. He has no form nor comeliness, and when we shall see
Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him. He is despised and
rejected of men; a Man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief, and we hid
as it were our faces from Him. He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
Surely He has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows. Yet we did esteem
Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our
transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement of our
peace was upon Him; and with His Stripes we are healed!

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own
way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed,
and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth. He was led as a Lamb
to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so He opened
not His mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment, and who shall
declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; for
the transgression of My people He was stricken. And He made His grave
with the wicked, and with the rich in His death; because He had done no
violence, neither was any deceit in His mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD
to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You shall make His soul
an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand. He shall see
the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied! By His knowledge
My Righteous Servant shall justify many; for He shall
bear their iniquities. Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the Great,
and He shall divide the spoil with the strong; because He has poured out
His soul unto death. And He was numbered with the transgressors.
He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Isaiah 63:8-10
…He was their Saviour. In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the
Angel (Messenger) of His Presence saved them. In His love and in His pity
He redeemed them; and He bare them, and carried them all the days of old.
But they rebelled, and grieved His Holy Spirit.
The following Scripture prophesies show that this ‘Suffering Servant’,
this Priest of God Most High, would come from the high priest family of Zadok
of the line of Aaron, and also from the family of king David!

Jeremiah 33:12,14-26
“Thus says the LORD of hosts (the second Person of the Triune Godhead),
‘Behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will perform that good thing
which I have promised to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah.
In those days, and at that time, I will cause ‘a Righteous Branch’
to grow up unto David; and He shall execute Judgment and Righteousness
in the land. In those days Judah shall be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell
safely. And this is what shall be proclaimed in her (Jerusalem),
‘The LORD our Righteousness!’ “For thus says the LORD,
‘David shall never lack a Man to sit upon the Throne of the House of Israel.
Neither shall the Levitical priests lack a Man before Me to offer burnt
offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.’ ”
And the Word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying, “For thus says
the LORD: ‘If you can break My Covenant with the day and My Covenant
with the night, so that there will not be day and night in their season, then
My Covenant may also be broken with David My servant, so that he shall not
have a Son to Reign on his throne, and with the Levitical priests, My ministers.
As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, nor the sand of the sea measured,
so will I multiply the descendants of David My servant and the Levites who
minister to Me.’ ” Moreover the Word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying,
“Have you not considered what these people have spoken, saying, ‘The two
families (David & Aaron) which the LORD has chosen, He has also cast
them off? Thus they have despised My people, as if they should no more be a
nation before them. “Thus says the LORD: ‘If My Covenant is not with day
and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth, then I
will cast away the descendants of Jacob and David My servant, so that I will not
take any of his descendants to be rulers over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac,
and Jacob. For I will cause their captives to return, and I will have mercy on

How do we know that the Man who sits as King upon the Throne of David
and the Man who will represent the Aaronic priests to offer burnt offerings,
and kindle grain offerings, and to do sacrifices continually before the LORD
is the same Man? [God confirms this in Zechariah 6: verses 11 and 13]
The LORD of hosts prophesies two times that ‘a Righteous Branch’
who is also called ‘the LORD our Righteousness’, another title for Messiah,
will be both a King upon the Throne of David and He will also offer sacrifices
and be a representative for the Aaronic Priesthood: This KING PRIEST
is from both the seed of David and, as we shall see, from the seed of Zadok!
By the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established.
Deuteronomy 19:15

Zechariah 3:6,8,9
Then the Angel of the LORD (Yeshua in heaven) spoke to Yehoshua, saying,
“Hear now, O Yehoshua, the high priest (of the Aaronic family of Zadok),
you and your fellows that sit before you; for they are men wondered at.
For, behold, I will bring forth My Servant ‘the Branch’ (Messiah)!
For behold ‘the Stone’ that I have laid before Yehoshua; upon the Stone
are seven eyes…” [This same Zadok high priest ‘Yehoshua’ is named ‘Yeshua’
in Ezra 3:2; 5:2; Nehemiah 7:7; 12:26; and his father, in 1st Chronicles 6:14,15]
LORD Yeshua speaks to Zadok high priest Yeshua about the Messiah Yeshua!
[‘Angel of the LORD’ and ‘Messenger of the LORD’ are synonymous terms]
Here the Angel of the LORD, second Person of the Godhead, prophesies
to Yehoshua (Yeshua) high priest of the family of Zadok, announcing to him
the coming of God’s Servant ‘the Branch’, , another name for ‘the Messiah’.
He also announces ‘the Stone’, a Messianic title for the Messiah, and talks of
the seven eyes, which are the Seven Spirits of God, as seen in Revelation 5:6.
The coming Messiah is prophesied to a Zadok high priest named Yeshua!
Zechariah 6:11,12,13 [King Priest!]

“Take silver and gold, and make crowns (plural) and set them on the head
of Yehoshua (Yeshua) the son of Jehozadok, the high priest. Then speak
to him (Yehoshua), saying, “Thus says the LORD of hosts, saying,
‘Behold the Man whose name is ‘The Branch’; and He shall grow up
out of His place, and He shall build the Temple of the LORD. Even He
shall build the Temple of the LORD; and He shall bear the Glory, and shall
sit and Rule upon His Throne and He shall be a Priest upon His Throne;
and the counsel of Peace shall be between Them both.’ ”

Here we again see God, the LORD of hosts, prophesying to Yehoshua,
the Zadok high priest, telling Yehoshua that the Man called ‘the Branch’
(the Messiah) is coming who will be both a King and a Priest upon His
Throne … Also, many crowns are also physically and symbolically placed
on the head of this high priest Yehoshua (Yeshua) of the family of Zadok.
We see the fulfillment of this in Revelation 19:12, when King Priest
Yeshua returns from Heaven wearing many crowns, coming with His Bride.
[This Zadok high priest is named Yehoshua. But this same Zadok high
priest is also called Yeshua in Ezra 3:2 and 5:2 and Nehemiah 7:7; 12:26]
Here are the five scripture references from Ezekiel 40-48,
where God changed the whole Aaronic Priesthood, and clearly declared that
of all the sons of Aaron only sons of Zadok would be God’s priests allowed
to come into the Presence of God, to stand and serve and minister before God.
[Ezekiel 40:46; 43:18,19; 44:15-18, 21-24; 45:3,4; 48:10,11]

Having read these Messianic prophesies of the Old Testament which indicate
that the Messiah would be the fulfillment of the high priest family of Zadok
of the Aaronic Priesthood, besides being from the family / seed of king David,
we are now ready to go to the New Covenant, and to see this great Mystery
revealed of just how Messiah Yeshua, the King and High Priest of Heaven is
also the fulfillment of the Zadok high priest family of the Aaronic Priesthood.
But before we continue, it is extremely important to understand that with
the removal of the Zadok high priest family by the Maccabees about 160 B.C.
from their rightful position of authority as high priests of the Jerusalem Temple,
and the corruption of the Aaronic Priesthood which followed, all in violation of
the Word of God, that those who were of this high priest family of Zadok later
hid their identities! For in the days of king Herod, if the real Zadok high priest
and his family had been found out, they would most likely all have been killed.

High priests Annas and Caiaphas were Roman politically appointed positions.
[Many revelations just given and those that follow are taken from my book,
‘Revealing The Mysteries Of The Melchi-Zedek Priesthood’, published 2001.
Much of what is written in this book is a synopsis of keys from that earlier book.
These are revelations that God began placing in my spirit almost 20 years ago.]

So the real question behind the scene which opens the New Covenant
is just how would God restore the high priest position to the Zadok family?
And also unless God somehow miraculously intervened by giving a son
to this high priest family of Zadok, the family could not continue. But this
Zadok high priest family had to continue … to fulfill God’s divine plan for
Messiah’s coming to earth. Just how would God cause all this to happen?

This mystery Zadok high priest and his wife had been hiding their identity
for many years. They had no children, no son to pass on this high priest mantle
of authority to for the next generation, because his wife was barren and both
were well advanced in years. What would God do? This opening scene of
the New Covenant would be the catalyst that changed the world. [Luke 1:5-20]
Priest Zechariah had drawn the lot to serve God at the Altar of Incense in
the Jerusalem Temple. Every day, morning and evening, for the last 160 years
or more a different priest had served God at this position at the Altar of Incense,
most in violation of God’s Word from Ezekiel. But this day something different
was about to happen. God sent His angel Gabriel to speak to this priest as he
ministered at the Altar of Incense, to tell Zechariah two special things that day,
… that he was going to have a son, and that his son would have to be called
Yochanan! Then the angel Gabriel took away Zechariah’s speech, so he
could not speak for over the next nine months, until his son’s circumcision.

God will never lie nor confuse us! What was God saying? After over
160 years of Temple priest corruption, God was pointing out the real mystery
Zadok high priest, Zechariah! How do we know this? In Exodus 30:7,
God tells us in His Word the position of serving God at the Altar of Incense
belonged to priest Aaron and his future son who would serve next as high priest.
By sending His angel while Zechariah was serving God at this Altar of Incense
position, God was telling us very clearly who this priest Zechariah really was!
God, in recognizing priest Zechariah at the high priest position, was saying
loudly, “This is My priest who has the right to minister to Me at this position!”
God was also telling him through His angel Gabriel that he would have a son,
so that the line of the Zadok high priests would now be able to continue. Also,
as you will be told later, just why this special son, who thirty years later would
become the next Zadok high priest of Aaron, had to be named Yochanan!

God will only recognize Aaronic priests of the sons of Zadok. Ezekiel 44:13-16
God also told us about Yochanan’s parents. Priest Zechariah and his wife
Elisheva were both of Aaron, and righteous before God, walking in all the
ordinances of the LORD blameless. [Luke 1:5,6] What an amazing statement
from God! Zadok means righteous. Both were baptized and filled with the
Holy Spirit; Elisheva, while Yochanan was in her womb, and Zechariah, at the
time when he named his son ‘Yochanan’, at his son’s circumcision. Listen to
Zechariah’s words: “serve Him…in holiness and righteousness before Him…”
Luke 1:74,75 [Only Aaronic priests of Zadok were allowed that priviledge.]
The next miracle God did was to give divine conception of a Child, a Son
to a virgin named Miriam, who was betrothed to a man of the tribe of Judah.
Scripture in hebrew says Miriam was a close relative of Elisheva. Luke 1:36
Miriam was from this same Zadok high priest family as Elisheva!

That was Miriam’s family secret which God has now revealed! God wants
this Truth to now be released to His whole Body and also to the unsaved world.
As Zechariah was the mystery Zadok high priest, so Miriam also carried in
her womb the Seed for the highest position of this Zadok high priest family.
God had so amazingly done it all, arranging all the details absolutely perfectly!
“And this will be a Sign to you: You will find the Babe wrapped in swaddling
clothes lying in a Succah!” Mishna says these were priests undergarments???
Luke 2:12 Was this Babe wrapped in high priest Zechariah’s undergarments?
I have stated from the Old Testament Messianic Scripture prophesies
that the promised Messiah was of the Seed of Eve of Genesis 3:15; this Seed
would carry the fulfillment of two special tribes of Israel, both Judah and Levi,
the line of kings and the line of the Zadok high priests. Yeshua had appeared in
His preincarnate form, coming to earth to bless this Seed in the loins of Abram,
in Genesis 14:18. Our Great King and High Priest Yeshua has fulfilled these
Messianic scripture prophesies concerning Himself. Luke 24:25-27; 44-48;

But just how can all this be proven?
To keep this Truth clear and simple, I will present one very important point.
We all value the Blood of Yeshua shed to forgive us of all of our sins and bring
us into Eternal Life forever with God our Father and with Yeshua. Yeshua
from Heaven, had changed the whole Aaronic priesthood. He had placed
the Zadok priests in authority as His high priests over all the other families
of the Aaronic priesthood (and over all the children of Israel). God specifically
stated only the sons of high priest Zadok would be able to minister to God,
and to come into the Presence of God to offer the Blood Sacrifice. We will
again look at these changes that God made to the whole Aaronic Priesthood,
specifically in two of these five Scriptures on Zadok in the book of Ezekiel.

Ezekiel 43:18,19
And He said to me, “Son of man, thus says the Lord GOD, ‘These are
the ordinances for the Altar on the day when it is made, for sacrificing burnt
offerings on it, and for sprinkling blood on it. You shall give a young bull
for a sin offering to the priests, the Levites, who are of the seed of Zadok,
who approach Me to minister to Me,’ says the Lord GOD.”
Ezekiel 44:15
“But the priests, the Levites, the sons of Zadok, who kept charge of My
Sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from Me, they shall come
near Me to minister to Me. And they shall stand before Me to offer to Me
the fat and the Blood,” says the Lord GOD. [Only the blood offering
coming from the sons of Zadok would from now on be acceptable to God!]

My Question? Would Yeshua Himself, who can never lie, violate these same
decrees, and statutes, and ordinances by which He changed the whole Aaronic
Priesthood, to bring special authority to only the sons of high priest Zadok?
Let me state this another way… Yeshua Himself came into the Presence
of His Father and God in Heaven when He brought His shed Blood offering
to the Mercy Seat in Heaven as the High Priest Sin Offering, to be accepted
on our behalf, for all of our sins, for your sins and for my sins.
For Yeshua to bring His Blood before His Father in Heaven, He had to
qualify by the same rules which He gave to His priests, the sons of Zadok, for
His Blood to be accepted for our sins. He had to pass the same qualifications!
Yeshua, besides being Priest of God Most High, He also had to be a Son of
the Zadok priest family on earth! He also had to be of the seed of Zadok
for His Blood Sacrifice to be accepted by His Father in Heaven!
‘… and now, behold, I have brought the Firstfruits of the land which You,
O LORD, have given me.’ Then you shall set it before the LORD your God,
And worship before the LORD your God. Deuteronomy 26:10

The Word of God in Ezekiel 44:15 says that only priests, the sons of Zadok,
can come into the Presence of God, to bring the blood sacrifice. Yeshua is
Priest of God Most High! But through the Seed from His mother Miriam,
He is also a son of the Zadok high priest family, and therefore He qualifies
to bring His Blood into Heaven and to set it before His Father, on our behalf!
Yeshua said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended
to My Father. But go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to
My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’ ” John 20:17
And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel,
and say to them: ‘When you come into the land which I give to you and
reap its harvest (on Feast of Unleavened Bread), then you shall bring a sheaf
of the firstfruits of your harvest to the priest. He shall wave the sheaf before
the LORD … Leviticus 23:10,11 [Yeshua’s Resurrection Day!] In the book
of Hebrews it says, “…with His own Blood He entered the Most Holy Place
once for all, having obtained Eternal Redemption.” Hebrews 9:12 … the Blood
of the Eternal Covenant … How much more shall the Blood of the Messiah,
through the Eternal Spirit… cleanse your conscience… Hebrews 13:20; 9:14;
Yeshua was never an Aaronic priest, because the Aaronic Priesthood
was passed from father to son, and Yeshua’s Father is God! But through His
mother Miriam, the Seed ‘of woman’, of Eve, was passed on to Him, of Genesis
3:15. Yeshua is the fulfillment of this Seed! For He carries in His genetics
the highest position of the physical line of the Zadok high priest family,
as He also carries in this Seed the fulfillment of the line of king David.
Can you see it now? This King Priest Mystery fulfilled in Yeshua!

Why did God say Zechariah and Elisheva had to name their son Yochanan?
Why did God make the announcement through His angel Gabriel that this name
Yochanan was so important? Luke 1:13 As Zechariah was the mystery Zadok
high priest of the line of Aaron, so his son would be the one to carry this mantle
as the next Zadok high priest! But why did his name have to be Yochanan?
One morning, early in 1999, God sent me on a special library quest to find
the names of all Aaronic high priests of the First and Second Temple periods.
I would never have guessed what God was about to show me next for this book.
The name Yochanan was the high priest’s name that had previously been
given to two of the Zadok high priests. It was first given to Zadok’s own great
grandson. And the second time this name was used, and this is the bonanza …
Yochanan was the name given to the last recorded
Zadok high priest of the second Temple period!
This was just prior to or during the time of corruption of the
Temple priesthood, with the overthrow of the Zadok priests
by the Maccabees, during the Hasmonean era. [171 BC]
And now can you see why it was so important for God to make sure that
this baby boy, Yochanan, born to high priest Zechariah and Elisheva, would
have this name Yochanan? For it literally showed the fulfillment of God’s
promised Word spoken to the Zadok priests. God gave to Zechariah’s and
Elisheva’s newborn son the name of the last righteous Zadok high priest,
Yochanan, the Kohen Gadol.

It is generally agreed that Yochanan, Kohen HaGadol, lived just before
or during the ‘Hasmonean era’, the period following the Chanukah miracle,
from 165 BC. [The Art Scroll Publications, Yoma Edition, Volume 9,
Section: ‘Kohanim Gedolim in the First and Second Temples!]

What we see, arranged so perfectly by God, and announced by the angel
Gabriel in the opening scene of the New Covenant, and then also at the time of
circumcision of their baby son was a continuation of this Zadok high priest’s
name and lineage through Yochanan, high priest Zechariah’s son, until the time
would come when Yochanan would transfer this Zadok high priestly mantle
of authority on to God, on to Yeshua, ‘the Word made Flesh’, Creator, and
fulfillment of the Aaronic Priesthood, in order to fulfill all Righteousness!
But the angel (Gabriel) said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zechariah, for your
prayer is heard, and your wife Elisheva will bear you a son, and you shall call
his name Yochanan.” “For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall
drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will be filled with the Holy Spirit even
from his mother’s womb. And he will turn many of the children of Israel to the
LORD their God. He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah,
to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children [Malachi 4:6], and the disobedient
to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
His mother (Elisheva) answered and said, “No; he shall be called Yochanan!”
So they made signs to his father (priest Zechariah) what he would be called.
And he asked for a writing tablet, and wrote, saying, his name is Yochanan!”
So they all marveled. Immediatelly his mouth was opened and his tongue
loosed, and he spoke praising God… “And you, child, will be called the prophet
of the Highest, for you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare His ways,
to give knowledge of Salvation to His people, by the remission of their sins,
through the tender Mercy of our God… to give light to those who sit in darkness,
to guide our feet into the way of Peace.” Luke 1:13,15-17,60,62-64,76-79

[ This Zadok high priest’s calling was to Prepare the Way of the LORD! ]
… while Annas and Caiaphas were high priests, the Word of God
came to Yochanan the son of (priest) Zechariah in the wilderness. Luke 3:2
We see Yochanan’s submission to Yeshua at the Jordan River … That’s why
Yeshua said, “Permit it to be so now, in order to fulfill all Righteousness…”
What was Yeshua implying? Yochanan’s submission as the Zadok high
priest to Yeshua at the Jordan River implied that Yochanan already knew
that Yeshua was in a position of far greater spiritual Authority than he, both
from Heaven, and also physically, from their own Zadok family relationships.
“I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming
after me is Mightier than I, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose,
He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” Matthew 3:11, Luke 3:16
Then Yeshua came from Galilee to Yochanan at the Jordan to be baptized
by him. And Yochanan tried to prevent him, saying, “I need to be baptized
by You, and are you coming to me?” But Yeshua answered and said to him,
“Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all Righteousness!”
Then he allowed Him. When He had been baptized, Yeshua came up…
immediately from the water, and behold the heavens were opened to Him,
and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.
And suddenly a Voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son,
in whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:11,13-17 [also see Daniel 9:24]
The next day Yochanan saw Yeshua coming toward him, and said, “Behold,
the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! This is He of whom
I said after me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me.
I did not know Him, but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came
baptizing with water.” And Yochanan bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit
descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. I did not
know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘Upon whom
you see the Spirit descending and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes
with the Holy Spirit.’ And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God!”
Looking at Yeshua … he said, “Behold the Lamb of God!” John 1:29-34,36
This was the mystery that existed between these two cousins, Yeshua and
Yochanan. They were both high priests, but Yeshua, the King and Great
High Priest of Heaven, carried within His genetics from His mother Miriam
the fulfillment of the highest position of the Zadok high priest family line.
Yeshua, ‘the King of Righteousness’, was the physical fulfillment of
this ‘righteous seed’, which ran thru two tribes, Judah and Levi. This seed
showed up in Noah, Genesis 7:1; then in Abram, Genesis 14:18, 15:6. Next
it was in Aaron’s grandson Phinehas of Eleazar, Psalm 106:31; Then we see it
in king David and his seed, Psalm 110:4; and in high priest Zadok and his seed.
Last in Yochanan; and then in Yeshua, in order to fulfill all Righteousness!

The writer of the Book of Hebrews had something to say about this Mystery
of Yeshua and the Melchi Zedek Priesthood … that seems to suggest that
Yeshua, from the tribe of Judah, head of the Melchi-Zedek Priesthood,
was in no way connected to the family of the Aaronic Priesthood …
‘Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical Priesthood,
what further need was there that another Priest should Rise
according to the Order of Melchi-Zedek (Father’s side),
and not be called according to the Order of Aaron (father’s side)?

For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change
of the law. For He of whom these things are spoken belongs to another tribe,
from which no man has officiated at the Altar. For it is evident that our Lord
arose from Judah, of which tribe Moses spoke nothing concerning priesthood.
And it is yet far more evident if, in the likeness of Melchi Zedek there arises
another Priest, who came, not according to the law of a fleshly commandment,
but according to the power of an Endless Life. For He testifies,
You are a Priest forever after the Order of Melchi Zedek!’
Hebrews 7:11-17 (from Psalm 110:4, a Psalm of David to David)
[Priesthood, Aaronic or Melchi-Zedek, is always from father’s side.]
This statement in Hebrews is perfectly correct, and also partially correct.
Perhaps God wanted the full revelation of Yeshua to be veiled until now,
for the End Times, as the LORD had foretold in Daniel 12:4,9. For Yeshua’s
geneology is from two tribes, Judah and Levi! [As the Aaronic Priesthood’s
origin is also genetically from two tribes, Levi and Judah! see page 5]

Do you see that it is totally impossible for Yeshua

to ever have been an Aaronic Priest, of the sons of Zadok. Why?
For the simple reason that the Aaronic Priesthood was passed
from father to son,
and Yeshua’s Father is God!
*** However, here is the answer that has long been missed …
It is what Yeshua inherited genetically from His mother’s Seed,
the Seed of Eve of Genesis 3:15
The Seed of woman carried the answer to this mystery!
Yeshua: fulfillment of two family lines: David and Zadok!

And also the ‘unspoken Blessing’ that this mystery King Priest
passed into Abram in Genesis 14:19, when He said: “Blessed be Abram
of God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth…” (‘I bless you Abram,
and I bless your Seed to bring forth Myself to the earth!’)
This is what God physically passed into Yeshua through Miriam’s Seed:
not only the fulfillment of both the line of David’s kingship and Zadok’s
high priesthood, in the flesh, but also Miriam’s part of this divine love story
was to bring forth ‘the One’ into the earth, whose carried the three Mantles
of Authority revealed in Genesis 14:18: ‘Priest of God Most High’,
‘King of Salem’, and ‘My King of Righteousness (Melchi Zedek)!’
Through His mother Miriam’s bloodline, as a daughter of Zadok priests,
(probably granddaughter to the previous mystery Zadok high priest) …
Yeshua automatically was born a Son of Zadok priests!
And this is exactly how Yeshua fulfilled all these prophesies!
Now let’s look at some other keys on this subject …
“And you, child, will be called the Prophet of the Highest, for you will
go before the Face of the LORD, to prepare His Ways, to give knowledge
of Salvation to His people by the remission of their sins…” Luke 1:76,77;
Malachi 2:7; 3:1 Hebrew words, ‘salvation’ and ‘righteousness’, are related.
Both Yochanan and Yeshua were six months apart, and both waited
until the legal Aaronic Priesthood age of thirty, before beginning their
unique ministries as Priests of God, to fulfill the Torah. Numbers 4:1-4

For Yochanan, this was the Aaronic Priesthood. But why did Yeshua,
of the tribe of Judah, have to wait until the age of thirty, the legal age for
an Aaronic Priest to begin, before He began His earthly ministry? Luke 3:23
Yeshua was asked by the chief priests, the scribes and the elders: “By what
Authority do you do these things?” And Yeshua responded: “The baptism of
Yochanan, was it from Heaven or from men?” Matthew 21: 23-27; Luke 20:1-4
Yeshua then said “Yochanan came to you ‘in the way of Righteousness!’ ”
Matthew 21:32 This was another clue that Yochanan was from the sons of
Zadok. [Righteous, as the Hebrew word ‘zadakah’ is closely related to Zadok.]
Yeshua was really answering their question by asking them his question.

Yeshua was indicating to them that His Authority was also from God,
released to Him from Heaven when Yeshua was immersed in the Jordan River
by God’s high priest and prophet Yochanan of the Aaronic Priesthood.
Yeshua’s ministry began when the mantle of priestly authority was passed
on to Him from God through His cousin Yochanan’s position and submission,
as the highest spiritual authority in Israel, the Zadok high priest of Aaron!
[“He must increase, but I must decrease.” John 3:30]

But Yochanan submission really began when he jumped in the womb of his
mother, when Miriam entered their home, pregnant with Yeshua. Luke 1:41-44
What I want to share with you now are more revelations from God
on this King, Priest, Prophet mystery, which I received in the fall of 2009…
It is God’s pattern for anointing a king … using His priest and prophet …
Samuel: Prophet (and priest ?), who as a child slept next to the Ark of God,
studied under high priest Eli, wore the linen ephod of the high priest of Aaron,
and was used by God to anoint Saul and then David as kings of Israel;
Zadok: High priest of the Aaronic Priesthood and prophet, used with Nathan
to anoint Solomon king of Israel at Gihon Spring in Jerusalem; 1st Kings 1:39
Eliyahu: Prophet and Zadok priest of God. [How can we know this?

God told us that only priests of the sons of Zadok would be allowed to come
into the Presence of God, to stand and minister before God. Ezekiel 44:15,16]
And Eliyahu the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab,
“As the LORD God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not
be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.” And Elijah said,
“As the LORD of hosts lives, before whom I stand…” 1Kings 17:1; 18:15;
1Kings 18:21 And Eliyahu came to all the people, and said, “How long
shall you be between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him…”
1Kings 18:24 “And call on the name of your gods, and I will call on the
name of the LORD. And the God who answers by fire, He is God!”

1Kings 18:36-39 And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening
sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, “LORD God of Abraham,
Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that You are God in Israel, and that
I am Your servant, and that I have done all these things at Your word. Hear me,
O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that You are the LORD God, and
that You have turned their heart back again.” Then the fire of the LORD fell,
and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust,
and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw it,
they fell on their faces: and they said, “The LORD, He is God … He is God!”

And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire;
and after the fire a still small voice. And the LORD said to him (Eliyahu),
“Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus. And when you come,
anoint Hazael to be king over Syria. And Jehu the son of Nimshi
you shall anoint to be king over Israel. And Elisha, the son of Shaphat of
Abelmeholah, you shall anoint as prophet in your place.” 1Kings 19:12,15,16
Yochanan, the miracle born son of high priest Zechariah and Elisheva.
Zadok high priest of Aaron and prophet … baptized King Priest Yeshua;
Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water to repentance: but He that
comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear.
He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and with fire. (also Luke 3:16)
[Eliyahu said, “The God who answers by fire, He is God!” 1st Kings 18:24]

Listen to Yeshua’s words concerning His cousin Yochanan …
“But what went you out for to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you,
and more than a prophet. For this is he of whom it is written, ‘Behold,
I send My messenger before My face, who will prepare the Way before Me.’
For I say to you, among those born of women there is not a greater prophet
than Yochanan the baptizer. But he who is least in the Kingdom of God
is greater than he.” Matthew 11:9-11 and Luke 7:26-28
[also see Matthew 10:38,39; 18:3,4; 16:24,25; 20:26-28; 23:11,12; Mark
8:34,35; 9:35; Luke 9:23,24; 14:11, 27; James 4:6,10; 1st Peter 5:5-7;]
“But I say to you that Eliyahu has come already, and they knew him not,
but did to him whatever they wished. Likewise ‘the Son of man’ is also about
to suffer at their hands.” Then the disciples understood that He spoke to them
of Yochanan the baptizer. Matthew 17:12,13 [Philippians 2:5-9; Hebrews 12:2]
Eliyahu (‘my God is Yah’) is again coming soon to restore all things!

He will be a Zadok high priest of Aaron, and a true prophet of God.
Matthew 17:10,11 And His disciples asked Him saying,
“Why then do the scribes say that Eliyahu must come first?” Yeshua answered
and said to them, “Indeed, Eliyahu is coming first and will restore all things!”
Malachi 3:1 “Behold, I will send My messenger, and he shall prepare the Way
before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, shall come suddenly to His Temple,
even the Messenger of the Covenant, whom you delight in. Behold, He shall
come, says the LORD of hosts!”

Malachi 4:5,6 “Behold, I will send you Eliyahu the prophet before the coming
of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he shall turn the heart of the
fathers (Orthodox Jews) to the children (Messianic Jews), and the heart of
the children (Messianic Jews) to their fathers (Orthodox Jews), lest I come
and smite the earth with a curse.”

On Rosh HaShanah, September 30, 2000, a special group of 27 believers
marched with 7 silver trumpets from the ben Hinnom Valley, just below Mount
Zion hill in Jerusalem, to the Gihon Spring, where just above the flowing waters
of the Gihon Spring, with a special ram’s horn shofar, filled with anointing oil,
LORD Yeshua was spiritually anointed as the coming King Priest of Israel
of the sons of David. The 7 silver trumpets were then quickly blown over
the Gihon Spring, sealing this inauguration of Yeshua as the King of Israel.
And the Presence and Power and Glory of God were greatly experienced!

Let’s look at some other interesting relationships that God had made…
God used two women, Miriam, Moses’s sister, and Elisheva, wife of Aaron,
as key people in the formation of the Aaronic Priesthood. Elisheva became
‘the mother of the Aaronic Priesthood.’
But then God also used these same two women’s names, Miriam,
mother of Yeshua, and Elisheva, wife of Zechariah, mother of Yochanan,
in the formation of the New Covenant and the Melchi Zedek Priesthood.
Yochanan means ‘God is Gracious.’ Elisheva means ‘God of the oath.’
Zechariah means ‘The LORD remembers.’ Zadok means ‘righteous.’
Yeshua means ‘Salvation.’ Yehoshua means ‘The LORD is Salvation.’
God remembers and keeps all His Promises which
He has made to the Zadok priests of the Aaronic Priesthood!

Yeshua is our King Priest arising from another Priesthood, the Melchi Zedek
Priesthood, a Priesthood that pre-dated the Aaronic Priesthood. The Melchi-
Zedek Priesthood is the Eternal Priesthood of Heaven, which may have first
begun on earth with Adam in the Garden of Eden, or perhaps had its earliest
origin with Enoch, long before God formed the Aaronic Priesthood. I believe
that Moses was also a member of this heavenly Priesthood. (Psalm 99:6)
However, the Aaronic Priesthood is also an Eternal Priesthood, indicated
in many Scriptures. ‘You shall put the Holy garments on Aaron, and anoint
him and sanctify him, that he may minister to Me as priest. And you shall
bring his sons and clothe them with tunics. You shall anoint them, as you
anointed their father, that they may minister to Me as priests; for their anointing
shall surely be an Everlasting Priesthood throughout their generations.’
Exodus 40:13-15 (also Exodus 29:9; Numbers 25:13; Deuteronomy 18:1-5)
“I will raise up for Myself a faithful priest who shall do according
to what is in My heart and in My mind. I will build him a sure house,
and he shall walk before My Anointed (Messiah) forever!” 1st Samuel 2:35
[I believe this faithful priest is king David of the Melchi Zedek Priesthood,
who will walk before God’s Anointed Messiah, Yeshua, forever!]

Blessed by the name of God forever and ever, for Wisdom and Might
are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and
raises up kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who
have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what
is in the darkness and light dwells with Him. Daniel 2:20-22
I will give you treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places,
that you may know that I, the LORD, am the God of Israel. I am the LORD,
and there is no other. There is no other God besides Me. Isaiah 45:3,5
It is the Glory of God to conceal a matter,
but the glory of kings is to search out a matter. Proverbs 25:2

Just as the Zadok high priest Yochanan of the Aaronic Priesthood
was brought into perfect position and submission by God when Yeshua
came to earth the first time as Great High Priest of God, with the mantle
of high priest authority being passed from Yochanan, the Zadok high priest
[coming in the spirit and power of Eliyahu] to Yeshua. Even so …
the next true Zadok high priest of the Aaronic Priesthood [coming in the spirit
and power of Eliyahu] will again also be in perfect position and submission
for King Priest Yeshua’s Second Coming as ‘the King of Glory’!
(Psalm 24:7-10)

God may be bringing the Melchi Zedek Priesthood
into perfect alignment and submission before Yeshua’s
Second Coming, returning with His Bride to the earth!
Certain things must first proceed Yeshua’s Second Coming, such as God
sending Eliyahu the prophet before Him to turn the hearts of the fathers
(the Orthodox and ultra Orthodox Jews) to the children (the Messianic Jews),
and to turn the hearts of the children (the Messianic Jews) back to their fathers.
Malachi 4:5,6
This book has been written to prove that our Great and Awesome God,
King Priest Yeshua, has not only fulfilled the line and seed of king David,
but also King Priest Yeshua, while being God’s humble Servant on earth,
has also fulfilled the Aaronic Priesthood by being a Son in the Zadok high
priest family, and the fulfillment of all these Messianic Scripture prophesies.
What will these new revelations and new findings concerning Yeshua mean
for the Salvation of Israel and for God’s Jewish people and for the whole world?
When the Orthodox and ultra Orthodox Jews clearly learn about these truths
and new revelations concerning Yeshua, and finally realize that Yeshua is their
God and King Priest Messiah, and are saved and brought into the Kingdom of
God, then all Israel will be saved! For the main Stronghold in Israel is found
in the Orthodox and ultra Orthodox religious Jews. Perhaps God has hidden
these revelations about Yeshua for centuries until now, which hopefully will
be used by God to bring down the demonic strongholds of the enemy and help
lift the veil off of Judaism, to bring Salvation to God’s chosen people, Israel.
This book reveals much more of the Great Mystery of what is contained

in the precious Living Blood of Yeshua. The Eternal Spirit of God resides
with this Living Blood of the Lamb, the Son of God, which contains both
the fulfillment of the bloodline of king David and that of the Zadok high priest
family from Miriam’s DNA; along with what Yeshua received through His
Father’s DNA: as the King of Heaven and the Great High Priest of Heaven!
[Psalm 110:4; Revelation 1:5,6; 5:9,10]
Yeshua came to earth the first time primarily as a Priest, a humble Priest,
and Servant of God, the Son of man, coming from the Zadok high priest family
(and also the family of king David), to bring God’s Salvation to the earth. This
knowledge of His true relationship to the family of Aaron was kept secret for
the protection of the family, because Herod would have killed all this family.
When Yeshua returns, He will be coming back as the King of Righteousness!
Yeshua, the King of Righteousness,
was the Author and Perfector of the earthly ‘Righteous Seed’.
‘This Righteous Seed’ was first placed by God into Eve;
It was ‘the Seed of woman’, the Seed of Genesis 3:15.
This ‘Righteous Seed’ mainly ran through two tribes,
through Judah and Levi, and through two families,
David and the line of kings; Aaron and the line of priests.
… the two families which God has chosen. Jeremiah 33:24
This righteous seed was first seen in Abel, Adam and Eve’s son.
Matthew 23:35 and Hebrews 11:4
Next this Righteous Seed showed up in Noah, Genesis 7:1
(Ezekiel 14:14) “Come with all your house into the Ark,
for I see you righteous before Me in this generation.”

Then this Righteous Seed appeared in Abram,
“He (Abram) believed in the LORD, and it was accounted
to him for righteousness.” Genesis 15:6 (Romans 4:9)
but only after Melchi Zedek (my King of Righteousness)
Priest of God Most High, King of Salem, blessed Abram,
in Genesis 14:18.

Next this seed was seen in priest Phinehas, Aaron’s grandson.
“…it was accounted to him for righteousness” Psalm 106:30,31
“Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest,
has turned back My wrath from the children of Israel,
because he was zealous with My zeal among them,
so that I did not consume the children of Israel in My zeal.
Therefore say, ‘Behold, I give to him My Covenant of Peace,
and it shall be to him and to his descendants after him
a Covenant of an Everlasting Priesthood,
because he was zealous for his God,
and made atonement for the children of Israel.’ ”
Numbers 25:11-13

We next see this Righteous Seed found in king David.
“You are a priest forever after the Order of Melchi Zedek.”
Psalm 110:4
“… that My servant David may always have a lamp
before Me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen
for Myself, to put My name there.” 1st Kings 11:31,36
Nevertheless for David’s sake the LORD his God
gave him a lamp in Jerusalem, by setting up his son after him
and by establishing Jerusalem; because David did what was right
in the eyes of the LORD, and had not turned aside from
anything that He commanded him all the days of his life,
except in the matter of Uriah the Hittite. 1st Kings 15:4,5
The following are the kings of Judah who followed
David’s example, in doing what was right before the LORD …
Asa (1st Kings 15:11,14; 2nd Chronicles 14:2);
Jehoshaphat (1st Kings 22:41,43; 2nd Chronicles 17:3);
Hezekiah (2nd Kings 18:1,3; 2nd Chronicles 29:1,2, 31: 20);
Josiah (2nd Kings 22:1,2; 2nd Chronicles 34:1,2);


We also find this righteous seed in Daniel (Ezekiel 14:14)
and in Job (Ezekiel 14:14) Job 1:1 and 42:7
This righteous seed was also in high priest Zadok [‘righteous’],
This seed was then passed on through the sons of Zadok.
Ezekiel 43:18,19; 44:15,16,23,24; 45:3,4; 48:10,11; 40:46
We see this seed in the prophet Zechariah, of the Aaronic
priest family. Matthew 23:35 (2nd Chronicles 24:20-22)

Next this righteous seed appeared in the opening scene
of the New Testament, in both Zechariah, the mystery Zadok
high priest, and in his wife Elisheva, in Luke 1:5,6,
“righteous before God, walking in all the ordinances blameless.”
Then this seed was seen in prophet and high priest Yochanan,
“Yochanan came to you ‘in the way of righteousness!”
Matthew 21:32
This Righteous Seed was always in Yeshua,
‘the Son of man’, the Son of God (the Aleph and Tav),
the fulfillment of all Righteousness,
who is the fulfillment of the family line of king David,
and also the family line of high priest Zadok;
This Righteous Seed from Eve, the Seed of woman,
carried in Yeshua’s mother Miriam, was passed on to Him.

Listen to Yeshua greeting to Yochanan at the Jordan River,
He said to him, “Permit it to be so now,
in order to fulfill all Righteousness!”
Matthew 3:15
This Righteousness will also be found in Yeshua’s Bride!
“Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him Glory,
for the Marriage of the Lamb has come
and His wife has made herself ready. And to her
it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright,
for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.”
Revelation 19:7, 8

God prophesied much about His Son Yeshua’s Righteousness …
“Behold, a King shall Reign in Righteousness.” Isaiah 32:1
“…My Righteous Right Hand.” Isaiah 41:10
“My Righteous Servant …” Isaiah 53:11
“… a Righteous Branch …” Jeremiah 23:5; 33:15
“…the LORD our Righteousness…” Jeremiah 23:6; 33:16
“…to bring in Everlasting Righteousness!” Daniel 9:24
“Behold your King comes to you. He is Just…” Zechariah 9:9
“Sun of Righteousness shall Arise with Healing in His Wings.”
Malachi 4:2
This writer gives all the Honor and Glory to Yeshua, my God, my LORD
and my Savior! His Power and His LOVE and His Mercy are really Infinite!
All revelations found in this book are from Him, and for Him, which He wants
shared with His Body of believers and the unsaved, especially religious Jews.
[1st Corinthians 13:2 and Revelation 21:7]

Is anything too hard for our LORD? For with God nothing is impossible!
Forever, O LORD, Your Word is settled in Heaven!
Your Faithfulness endures to all generations.” Psalms 119:89,90
For You have magnified Your Word above all Your name! Psalm 138:2

The Word of our God stands forever! Isaiah 40:8

Acknowledgments and Comments:
This book is my gift of love, dedicated to my King and LORD
and Savior and Messiah, Yeshua, my King of Glory and the Lover
of my soul, for all Your Love and for the gifts that You have so richly
given to me, and for all that You have done for me in my life.
I give special thanks to my wife Feryl Christine for faithfully
standing with me, encouraging me, and for putting up with so much.
Richard Aaron Honorof
Over the years I have watched my husband become excited
as the Holy Spirit would reveal another part of this book.
This book is the resulting fruit of a great deal of dedication and
perseverance on Richard’s part, along with much spiritual warfare.
I truly believe that at some point in the future that the information
contained in this small but revelatory book is going to be an answer
for the religious Jew to understand just how Yeshua fulfilled the line
of the Zadok priesthood, as their true Messiah.
Feryl Christine Honorof
Special thanks is hereby given to Pastor Bill Ligon and
to Michael Cohen and to Elliot Klayman for being friends who have
helped me in the writing and editing of this book and the Power Point
slide presentation that goes along with it, and to all the many people
who have encouraged me over the years to keep putting out these
most important materials and revelations about our LORD Yeshua
to the Body of Messiah.
