Chapter 20


The Branch and The Melchi Tsedek

To come to a full understanding of the role of The Nazarene, we must properly put into context the prophecies of the coming Messiah. Yahusha was foretold in The Heavenly Scroll and the Prophets to be both The Messiah ben Joseph (also known as The Suffering Servant) and Messiah ben David (also known as The Conquering King).

We see Yahusha make reference to The Heavenly Scroll and the role of The Son of Man (which is the constellation Orion which represents The Coming of The Branch in the stars):

Matthew 20:28
“28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served (as King), but to serve (as the Suffering Servant), and to give his life as a ransom for many (pay the dowry for his Bride).”

Yahusha was well aware that he was the Fulfillment of The Plan of Salvation written in The Heavenly Scroll and what that Scroll declares about his life and Purpose. In The Heavenly Scroll, The Son of Man/Branch was foretold that he would battle the serpent, and that his death would result in Eternal Life. He would come first as Shepherd, then Harvester. And the last constellation that must be Fulfilled is that he would defeat the Dragon and Rule as The Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Below is the message contained in The Heavenly Scroll:

VIRGO: A virgin will give birth to a beautiful Glorious and Righteous Branch. The seed of the woman will be a man of humiliation to rise to be the desire of nations and will become exalted first as Shepherd then as Harvester. LIBRA: The scales demand a price to be paid of this seed, a cross to endure; the victim will be slain and purchase a Crown. SCORPIO: There is a conflict between the seed and the serpent leading to a struggle with the enemy, the enemy is vanquished. SAGITTARIUS: The double-natured seed (Servant/King) triumphs as a warrior and pleases the heavens, builds fires of punishment, casts down the dragon. CAPRICORNUS: Eternal life comes from his death, he's the Arrow of God, he is pierced, yet springs up again in abundant life. AQUARIUS: He pours out “Living Water” from on high, humanity drinks of the heavenly river and the Faithful live again, he is the Deliverer of the good news (Gospel), Carrying the Cross over the Earth. PISCES: The Redeemer's people multiplied, supported and led by the Lamb, The Bride is exposed on Earth, the Bridegroom is exalted. ARIES: The Lamb is found worthy, the Bride is made ready, Satan is bound, the strong man triumphs. TAURUS: The conquering Ruler comes, the sublime vanquisher, to execute the great judgment, he is the Ruling Shepherd King. GEMINI: The Marriage of the Lamb, the enemy is trodden down, the Prince comes in great Glory. CANCER: The great Bride, the two Houses of Judah and Israel are united, they are brought safely into the Kingdom. LEO: The Lion King is aroused for rending, the Serpent flees, the Bowl of Wrath is upon him, his Carcass is devoured. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah Rules as King.

We see that to Fulfill this message, Yahusha must Fulfill first the pictograph of Virgo which declares he would be first a Shepherd and then a Harvester. Then Fulfill the pictograph of Capricorn which declares that he must die and Eternal Life will result from his death. Finally, Leo where he would Reign as King.

This message in The Heavenly Scroll is the source of the Messianic Prophesies of Suffering Servant and Conquering King. In this chapter, we are going to look into Yahusha’s genetic bloodlines and prove that Yahusha was the Fulfillment of this message. He was the Mediating Zadok High Priest given the right to atone for humanity, and he was the Eternal King in the line of David to rule all of creation.

We are all taught a lie that Yahusha was the heir to come mythical priesthood passed down from the King of Salem called The Melchizedek Priesthood. The truth is that Yahusha was the heir not to the King of Salem, but to ‘The House of Zadok’.

Ezekiel 43:19

19 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 Yahuah.

This lie called ‘The Melchizedek Priesthood Doctrine’ is born of the deceiving Spirit of the False Messiah and destroys ‘The Plan of Salvation’ through a mediating Royal Zadok High Priest. I realize this chapter is going to step on the toes of many Messianic teachers today, and many of us who have been misled by their teachings to put our Faith in a Priesthood that does not exist. A make-believe Priesthood with no authority to mediate or atone. Today, we are not being properly taught ‘The Plan of Salvation’ which runs through carefully cultivated bloodlines, Promises made to those specific bloodlines, and Prophets who supported those Promises and bloodlines foretelling of The One who would come to Fulfill them.

Yahusha is the Messiah (and High Priest) because he Fulfills The Heavenly Scroll, all the Prophets, and all the Promises made by Yahuah in The Torah. Not because he is the ‘reincarnation of an ancient dead King and a demi-god’. Those are pagan concepts brought into the faith through Hellenism.


The Plan of Salvation through bloodlines is known as ‘The Scarlet Thread of Redemption’.


No, we are not taught ‘The Scarlet Thread of Redemption’ properly; we are instead taught to believe that Yahusha rules and mediates on the basis of some extra-Biblical Priesthood, based on Incarnation and the King of Salem, which has no genealogy (no bloodline), no Promises, and no prophecies to support it. Giving us a High Priest with NO AUTHORITY; as Authority comes from Promises made by Yahuah and The Spirit of Prophecy (the Testimony of Yahusha). I will explain what the title ‘Melchi Tzedek’ actually means and dispel the myth and human doctrine of ‘The Melchizedek Priesthood’.

Yahusha was not heir to a mysterious extra-Biblical priesthood as the ‘reincarnation of the King of Salem’ based on some spiritual seed imparted by Yahuah through Incarnation. The King of Salem was not “Shem”, yet this man was a King and a Priest/Mediator between his people and Yahuah! That is where the comparison ends. They do not share any DNA, no bloodline, and certainly NO PRIESTHOOD. And, of course, the King of Salem was not the pre-carnation of Yahusha the Messiah. Yahusha was not the ‘reincarnation’ of the King of Salem. THAT is pagan.

Melchi Tzedek is a title, not the name of the King, NOR is it intended to be the name of a priesthood outside of the Aaronic Line of High Priests! There is no such thing as a “The Melchizedek Priesthood”. Yahusha inherited the office of Eternal High Priest from The House of Zadok. He was a Zadokite High Priest by birth, Fulfilling the Promises made to the ‘Zadok Line of the Aaronic High Priests’. He also was the Rightful King by Yahuah’s Decree, making Yahusha the long awaited “Melchi Tzedek”.

Yahusha does not serve as King and High Priest by ‘sound bitten implications and human tradition’, but by explicit Promises made to carefully ‘cultivated’ bloodlines in The Torah, and prophecies concerning those bloodlines in The Prophets.

Simply put, Yahuah didn't spend the last 6,000 years laying out His Plan of Salvation through bloodlines only to toss all that out in Yahusha. Much like The Law! Yahusha is the final expression of both The Law and those carefully cultivated bloodlines, which... both, The Law and the Promises made to those bloodlines, are what gives Yahusha the Authority to Reign as King and Mediate as High Priest.

The version of the messiah who did away with The Torah and Prophets and all the Promises therein... is known as The Lawless One. So, beware of any “Priesthood” that does away with the ‘Scarlet Thread of Redemption’(which that is through ‘carefully cultivated’ bloodlines and PROMISES of Yahuah)!






Two Competing Priesthoods

We have two competing priesthoods, one being taught today (nowhere to be found in The Scriptures) and one found in The Scriptures, not being taught today:

The Melchizedek Priesthood - A priesthood not defined in Scripture, no Promises made by Yahuah, and no prophecy from which to establish its Authority. A priesthood void of The Spirit of Prophecy which is the Testimony of the Messiah. A priesthood instead based on The Spirit of the False Messiah which is the pagan philosophy of Incarnation. A non-existent priesthood based on human tradition and misunderstanding of Scripture that breaks ‘The Scarlet Thread of Redemption’ and is contrary to ‘The Plan of Salvation’.

The Royal Priest of the House of Zadok - A Priesthood well established in the Torah by Yahuah, with explicit Promises made by Yahuah to establish it as Eternal, Promises by which this Priesthood has the Authority to Rule as King, Mediate the Renewed Covenant of Peace, and to make Atonement for humanity. A Priesthood ripe with The Spirit of Prophecy, Fulfilling the ‘Scarlet Thread of Redemption’ through ‘carefully cultivated’ bloodlines.

In this chapter, I will explain The Scarlet Thread of Redemption, which is redemption Fulfilled through human bloodlines coming together in a rare genetic mixture in one man who would Fulfill these Promises and prophecies… Yahusha the Messiah. Yahusha is The Royal High Priest of the House of Zadok given a name/title above every name through inheritance… Melchi Tzedek.

Hebrews 1:4

Yahusha, has become as much better than the Angels/representative (that came before him), as he has ‘inherited’ (through bloodlines) a more excellent name/title (Melchi Tzedek) than they.


Philippians 2:9

Therefore Yahuah has highly exalted Yahusha and bestowed on him (through carefully cultivated bloodlines) the name that is above every name (Melchi Tzedek)


Hebrews 7

23 Now there have been many of those Priests (who, like Yahusha, were chosen from among MEN), since death prevented them from continuing in office; 24 but because Yahusha lives forever (being Begotten Divine through Resurrection, not because he was part of some mythical Melchizedek Priesthood), he has a permanent (Zadok) Priesthood (because he ‘inherited’ that office from the Promise Yahuah made to the line of Zadok through Phinehas, Numbers 25: 10-13). 25 Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to Yahuah through him (inheriting the Promise to Atone through The House of Zadok, Numbers 25:10-13), because he always lives (a living sacrifice) to intercede for them (Eternally). 26 Such a High Priest truly meets our need—one who is Holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners (Resurrected into his Spiritual Body), exalted above the heavens. 27 Unlike the other (Zadok) High Priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their (he and the people's) sins once for all (time) when he offered himself. 28 For The Law appoints as High Priests, men in all their weakness; but the Oath (Yahuah made to Phinehas, Numbers 25:10-13), which came after The Law (was written in stone), appointed the son (who is the progeny of Phinehas, the Fulfillment of that Promise), who has been made perfect FOREVER.

In this chapter I will show:

·         The Scarlet Thread of Redemption runs through Aaron to the House of Zadok Fulfilled in Yahusha… and through the House of David to Yahusha who inherited the title Ruling (Melchi) High Priest of the House of Zadok (Tzedek).

·         Melchizedek is not a name, but a title and two separate titles at that…. Melchi and Tzedek

·         Psalm 110:4, the very foundation of this false teaching of The Melchizedek Priesthood has NO relationship to the King of Salem

·         Abraham did not “tithe” a 10th of all his possessions, as if tithing to a “God”, but only the spoils of war to a king who came to his aid in battle as was the ‘custom’. Possibly not even THAT, but simply a “portion of his food” at the dinner.

·         Yahusha is the Fulfillment of Eternal King to The House of David

·         Yahusha is the Fulfillment of Eternal High Priest to The House of Zadok

·         Yahusha is a direct descendant and heir to The Office of High Priest of Zadok

·         The Spirit of Prophecy backs Yahusha’s claim as Ruling Zadok High Priest

·         The King of Salem is not Shem

·         Yahusha was not born with any Divine Seed that gives him the Authority to Mediate based on a mysterious Melchizedek Priesthood stemming from the ‘reincarnation’ of the King of Salem, but rather born by human means only outside of any Divine Influence or “seed”.

·         There is no such thing as The Melchizedek Priesthood that runs through Shem to the King of Salem to Yahusha in Scripture, History, or Prophecy. No Promises made to such a priesthood, no prophetic utterances establishing such a priesthood, and in fact such a priesthood violates clear sound Scripture and The Plan of Salvation Fulfilled through human bloodlines.


The Scarlet Thread of Redemption


Joshua 2:18-19

18 unless, when we come into the land, you tie this cord of scarlet thread in the window through which you let us down, and gather to yourself into the house your father and your mother and your brothers and all your father’s household. 19 It shall come about that anyone who goes out of the doors of your house into the street, his blood shall be on his own head, and we shall be free; but anyone who is with you in the house, his blood shall be on our head if a hand is laid on him.

First, to understand this issue and how dangerous this false teaching really is, we must understand Yahuah’s Plan of Salvation that is Fulfilled through human bloodlines called ‘The Scarlet Thread of Redemption’ shadow pictured in the story of Rahab.

The Chosen Bloodlines (Scarlet Thread)...

Yahuah chose one bloodline through whom He would reveal His Chosen Ones, the family/bloodline of Abraham/Isaac/Jacob, NOT the King of Salem. Then, as the Children of Yahuah grew from a Family into Tribes and later into a great ‘nation of people’, there arose a need for a King and a High Priest. Yahuah would be King of Israel directly, and would choose a High Priest from among men to serve as a Mediator. The bloodline of Aaron would be chosen to serve Yahuah as High Priest and Yahuah Promised that bloodline would Eternally serve Him and ONLY that bloodline. Not some extra-Biblical mythical bloodline. The people would reject Yahuah as their King and request a human to sit on the Throne. Yahuah would then choose the bloodline of David to serve as King of Israel and Promise that specific bloodline to sit on The Throne Eternally.

The Shadow of the coming Ruling Zadok: David and Zadok

While King David reigned as King, a Righteous High Priest in the Order of Aaron, would serve David Faithfully. His name was Zadok (means ‘Righteous’). Yahuah would Honor the Faithfulness of the High Priest Zadok and make his specific line of Aaronic High Priest, the only bloodline from which High Priests could be chosen, and The House of Zadok or “Sons of Zadok” would be the prepared bloodline from which would come the prophesied Messiah. Then, later, Yahuah would make explicit Promises to The House of Zadok that a descendent from that bloodline would be made Eternal High Priest, be Mediator of The Renewed Covenant of Peace, and be qualified to make Atonement by the Authority of that Promise made by Yahuah. This descendent would later be consecrated High Priest of the House of Zadok personally by Yahuah, making that descendent the Eternal High Priest given charge of Yahuah’s Courts! I will explain all of this in this teaching.

One man would Fulfill these prophecies being the perfect genetic mixture of The House of David and The House of Zadok; resulting in The Ruling High Priest of the House of Zadok who was given the title ‘Melchi Tzedek’ through inheritance as bloodline is one of the Testimonies that Yahusha is the Messiah. The title Melchi is the Fulfillment of the Promises to the Davidic Dynasty to have a descendent of David sit on The Throne Eternally. The title “Tzedek” or Zadok is the title given to one who, by blood inheritance, restores the office of High Priest to the House of Zadok Line of Aaron and Mediates Eternally as The Ruling Zadok.

Melchi Tzedek: The Title of Ruling Zadok

Melchizedek is not a name; in fact, it is two titles. In the majority of Masoretic Hebrew texts, this title is written as two words, Meleḵi-ṣedeq מלכי־צדק, because Abraham had identified ‘this man’ from Salem, as King and a High Priest of his people. The title is composed from the two elements melek(h) "king" and ṣedeq "Righteous(ness)".

It was not until the Hellenistic era it appears the name came to be associated with the Messiah and paraphrased as "king of righteousness" and written as one word ‘Melchizedek”!


As the Jews became Hellenized, the Babylonian doctrine of Incarnation began to take root, shape, define, and penetrate every aspect of how the Scriptures where read and understood. Again, we see that Melchi Tzedek is a title, not a name, when in Psalm 110, we read what ‘seems to allude’ to Melchizedek as a “prototype of the Messiah”. Although it is an illusion and not an accurate translation of Psalm 110! This led to the re-interpretation of the name as "king of righteousness" in Hellenistic Judaism in error based on a mis-understanding of Psalm 110. Further we find that it was not a personal name, but a title based on evidence found in the Qumran Scrolls, it was also used as a title of the Archangel Michael (who was not a descendent of Shem or the King of Salem!), interpreted as a heavenly priest; Michael as Melchi-Tzedek contrast with Belial, who is given the name of Melchi-resha "king of wickedness". What I am saying here is that the name of the King of Salem was NOT ‘Melchizedek’! And the titles Melchi and Tzedek were assigned to any being who was both a Priest AND a King... it has nothing to do with Shem or the King of Salem!

We see Sha’ul, in the book of Hebrews, follow this interpretation in stating explicitly that the title in Greek translation (ἑρμηνευόμενος) means βασιλεὺς δικαιοσύνης ("king of righteousness"), Melchi Tzedek as a title of the King of Salem as translating to βασιλεὺς εἰρήνης "king of peace".

Sha’ul simply uses the King of Salem to draw a comparison to Yahusha in the sense that both are Royal Priests.


Sha’ul makes the comparison because the King of Salem remains memorialized Eternally in Scripture having no genealogy as or “like” a “a priest forever” in our minds. Sha’ul specifically states that it is because we do not have this King’s genealogy, that is why we don’t know who his parents were or when he was born or died. Not because he was a God!

Hebrews 5:5-6

5 In the same way, Yahusha did not take on himself the Glory of becoming a High Priest (all High Priest are human, chosen among men, not gods, Hebrews 5:1). But Yahuah said to him (now Sha’ul demonstrates Yahusha was a human chosen by Yahuah among specific bloodlines), “You are my Son; Today (upon his Resurrection) I have become your Father (clear denial of Incarnation, Yahusha was ADOPTED). 6 And he says in another place, “You are a (Zadok) Priest Forever (Fulfilling Promise in Numbers 25:5-13), a Rightful (Davidian) King by My Decree (Fulfilling Promise made, 2 Samuel 7:12-16).”

The above Scripture is mistranslated to say “a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek” (I’ll prove this later in this chapter) and then combined with what Sha’ul said in Hebrews 7 to create this false priesthood! Then Sha’ul continues drawing a simple comparison to another Melchi Tzedek of his people, the citizens of Salem.

Hebrews 7

1 This Melchi Tzedek was king of Salem (Melchi) and priest of Yahuah Most High (Tzedek). He met Abraham returning from the defeat of the kings and blessed him, 2 and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything (a portion of the spoils of war). First, the name (name in Hebrew also means title or reputation) Melchi Tzedek means “King of Righteousness”; then also, “king of Salem” means “King of Peace.” 3 (He remains) Without father or mother, (because he is) without genealogy (being OUTSIDE the bloodline of Abraham so his genealogy was not kept), (therefore because we do not have his genealogy... he is) without beginning of days or end of life, resembling (not the pre-carnation of) the Son of God (in that), he remains a priest forever (in our minds memorialized in that ‘one’ account in Genesis).

Sha’ul was just making a comparison nothing more than that. He was not teaching a different priesthood nor was he actually saying the King of Salem was Eternal, he was just saying he “seems that way” because we know nothing of him have no genealogy to refer to. Sha’ul’s writings have been Hellenized and twisted by the Greeks under the Spirit of the False Messiah. We are led to believe Sha’ul is teaching that Yahusha inherited some dead King’s mysterious priesthood. When Sha’ul was simply making a comparison to prove a point.

Sha’ul was a Torah Expert and knew what it is I am about to explain in this teaching: that the Messiah was a unique genetic mix Fulfilling the Promise to the House of David (Melchi) and the House of Zadok (Tzedek) and therefore, inherited the title Melchi Tzedek.





A Rightful King by My Decree

The Scripture used to link the King of Salem to Yahusha in some type of “eternal priesthood”, outside of that defined by Yahuah in Scripture (the bloodline of Aaron through Zadok), is David’s Psalm 110. However, what we do not realize is the Hebrew text of that Psalm is not so crystal clear! There are several ways of translating that Psalm. Most translations that follow the Septuagint read “thou are a Priest forever after the ‘order’ of Melchizedek”. However, the 1917 translation by JPS (the most trusted source at that time) recognized the word “order” was not what the Hebrew text implied. It was more along the lines of “manner” of a Melchi Tzedek. Not that Yahusha is a Priest in some other priestly order! But a Priest in the ‘manner’ of a King and High Priest at the same time.

Psalm 110:4 (JPS 1917 translation of Tanakh)

The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent: 'Thou art a Priest for ever after the manner of Melchi Tzedek.'

So what David was expressing is that Yahusha would be an Eternal Priest in like ‘manner’ (or like unto) a Righteous King. Psalm 110 actually has no significance to the King of Salem at all other than, like Sha’ul explained, there is a comparison to be drawn, but nothing more. This is far more accurate to The Plan of Salvation or Scarlet Thread of Redemption as Yahuah made the Promise of an Eternal Throne to David, and Eternal Priesthood to Zadok. So Yahusha would Fulfill that Promise to Zadok and be the Eternal High Priest but in the ‘manner’ of a Righteous King (Fulfilling the Promise to David). Yahusha would be BOTH. Recently, the JPS (Jewish Publication Society) has gone back and completely re-translated the Tanakh.  

The 1917 translation was based on The American Standard translation; they did not go back to the original text themselves in that 1917 version. We see from their website, their NEW Translation is totally new and completely unrelated to the 1917 version as they did not follow The American Standard, but went back to the original Hebrew text themselves.

"The New Jewish Publication Society of America Tanakh, first published in complete form in 1985, is a modern Jewish translation of the Masoretic Text of the Hebrew Bible into English. It is based on revised editions of earlier publications of subdivisions of the Tanakh such as, the Torah and Five Megillot, which were originally published from 1969–1982. It is unrelated to the original JPS Tanakh translation, which was based on the Revised Version and American Standard Version but emended to more strictly follow the Masoretic text, beyond both translations being published by the Jewish Publication Society of America."

How, once going back to the original language and Masoretic text, did they translate Psalm 110?

Psalm 110:4 (JPS 1985)

You are a Priest forever, a Rightful King by My Decree.

This sheds some serious “new Light” on this teaching of an external “Melchizedek Priesthood”! Because what David actually said has nothing to do with the King of Salem at all. Yahuah was simply telling Yahusha that he was the Fulfillment of the Promise to the House of Zadok line of Aaronic High Priest, NOT some mythical extra-Biblical priesthood based on re-incarnation of an Ancient King!

But there is more! The word translated “priest” in that verse is Hebrew ‘kohen’ ("כהן"). The term ‘kohen’ bears the connotation of priesthood, also servitude to the deity and, less frequently, RULERSHIP! We see this in (II Sam. 8:18): "and David's sons were kohanim (chief officers)". 2 Samuel 8:18 (KJV) - And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was over both the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and David's sons were chief rulers (kohenim). 2 Samuel 20:26 (KJV) - And Ira, also the Jairite, was a chief ruler (kohen) about David. 1 Kings 4:5 (KJV) - And Azariah the son of Nathan was over the officers: and Zabud the son of Nathan was principal officer (kohen) and the king's friend. In fact, the FIRST definition of Kohen is not ‘priest’ but “Chief Ruler” i.e. KING!


H3548 ‘Kohen’:
chief ruler, own, priest, prince, principle owner

When speaking of the Hebrew word "kohen", Christian translators translate as "priest" in Psalm 110, it is often translated as "ruler" in many places in Christian translations. The Hebrew word is kohen and while commonly translated as "priest" it may have other meanings. The word appears 750 times in the Masoretic Text. In 5 cases the KJV translates it as "officers". Therefore, Psalm 110:4 could actually read:

Psalm 110:4

You are a RULER forever, a Rightful King by My Decree.

The closer we get to the actual Hebrew... the less that verse has anything to do with some Melchizedek Priesthood or The King of Salem!


Psalm 110:4 is cited in the New Testament letter to the Hebrews as an indicator that Yahusha would be the Son of Yahuah, a Priest forever (Promise to the House of Zadok), and a King by Divine Decree (Fulfillment to the House of David):

Hebrews 5:5-6

5 In the same way, Yahusha did not take on himself the Glory of becoming a High Priest (all High Priest are human, chosen among men, not gods, Hebrews 5:1). But Yahuah said to him (now Sha’ul demonstrates Yahusha was a human chosen by Yahuah among specific bloodlines), “You are My Son; today (upon his Resurrection) I have become your Father (clear denial of Incarnation, Yahusha was ADOPTED). 6 And he says in another place, “You are a (Zadok) Priest forever (Fulfilling Promise in Numbers 25:5-13), a Rightful (Davidian) King by My Decree (Fulfilling Promise made, 2 Samuel 7:12-16).”


Tithe, spoils of war, or just a portion of food at the table?

Due to an ambiguity in the Hebrew text, it is unclear who gave tithe to whom or what/how much he gave: Did Abram give to the King of Salem, or the King of Salem to Abram: the verse in question states simply, "And [he] gave him tithe from all" (v-yiten-lo ma'aser mekol, ויתן לו מעשר מכל ). Most translations of this verse preserve the ambiguity, as in the Septuagint, which has edōken autōi, ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ "he gave to him", but some modern translations add the name Abram (in violation of do not add to or subtract from) as the mainstream interpretation of Abram being the giver and Melchizedek the recipient. Abram is implied but not specified so we should tread lightly... very lightly on this topic.

The Rogatchover Gaon, also understanding Abram to be the tithe giver, comments that the presented tithe was not a standard tithe (Maaser Rishon) as described in the Torah (given on an annual basis), but was a one-time "tribute offering" (trumat ha-mekhes, תרומת המכס), such as Moses gave to God in Numbers 31:41 most probably a tenth of the spoils of war. Lebanese Protestant scholar Kamal Salibi (1929–2011) observes that Hebrew: ֹמַעֲשֵׂר, m'sr, which literally does mean tenth, might more loosely be used to mean portion, and Hebrew: מִכֹּל, m-kl, or from all, might refer just to food in the giver's possession as the account is over a dinner, so that the whole verse might mean He gave him a portion of food (Kamal Salibi, The Bible Came from Arabia Jonathan Cape, 1985, chapter 12).

When reading the encounter between Abraham and the King of Salem, it takes place in a tent after the battle is over and the two kings dine together. The King of Salem brings the wine and we see that a “tenth” is specifically speaking of the spoils of war “take the goods for yourself” not a tenth of all Abraham had as a tribute to Yahuah.

Abraham did not “tithe” a tenth of all he had, he gave a portion of the spoils of war to the King who came to his aid, as was customary.

This has nothing to do with The Law of the Tithe, and does not make the King of Salem a “god incarnated King” as we are taught. It was just an account of two Kings victorious in battle, celebrating over a feast and dividing up the spoils! We see what they were dividing was “the people and the goods” taken in battle.

Genesis 14

19 He blessed him and said, "Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Possessor of heaven and Earth; 20 And blessed be God Most High, Who has delivered your enemies into your hand." he gave him a tenth of all (the spoils of war). 21 The King of Sodom said to Abram, "Give the people to me and take the goods (spoils of war) for yourself.”





The Royal King of The House of David

We all know David’s bloodline through Solomon would be the Scarlet Thread through which the Eternal Throne would be delivered to the “one who came to whose right it was to sit on it”. This is the Promise upon which the title “Melchi” in “MELCHI Tzedek” derives its Authority, not from some mysterious priesthood based on the reincarnation of the King of Salem.

2 Samuel 7:12-16

12 When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14 I will be his father, and he will be my son. When he does wrong, I will punish him with a rod wielded by men, with floggings inflicted by human hands. 15 But my love will never be taken away from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you. 16 Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me[a]; your throne will be established forever.’”

Yahusha inherited this title from his Earthly Father Yahseph (Joseph). We see Yahusha teach his disciples his biological lineage back to King David through the Royal Line of Solomon in Matthew Chapter 1. The Spirit of the False Messiah (incarnation) has poluted every level of our understanding and stands as a witness against Yahusha being the Messiah. Yahusha must have been born the biological son of Joseph to be the Messiah. If he was not, then the Throne of David would have been passed to the first biological son of Joseph which would have been Yaakov (James the Just).

To whom was Yahusha born?

In Matthew’s lineage, Yahusha was documenting his birthright to David through Solomon from his father Joseph. We are taught the false doctrine that Joseph was the STEP Father of Yahusha in error. Let’s look at the degree we are led astray by this false teaching when the Scriptures clearly tell us the Yahusha was born to Joseph who was the husband of Miriam.

In the Bible, people did not have last names. To identify a person, they used identifiers (words used to set a specific name apart from the rest) such as:

·         John the Baptist

·         Yahusha the Nazarene

·         Joseph the Carpenter

·         Simon the Zealot

·         Judas the Sicerii

·         And so forth.

In English, when we want to identify a person we just an Interjection or an interjectory phrase:

We see both of these techniques used to clearly say that “to Joseph was born Yahusha”. But what Joseph? To clarify which Joseph, he is called “Joseph the Husband of Mary” using “husband of Mary” as an identifier. In our English Bibles that identifier is set apart with commas as an interjectory phrase (an interjection to clarify the subject). Below is the verses in question, Yahusha is teaching his lineage to the Royal Line of David through Solomon:

Matthew 1
15 Eliud was the father of Eleazar, Eleazar the father of Matthan, Matthan the father of Jacob, 16 and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Yahusha, who is called the Messiah. 17 In all, then, there were fourteen generations from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Messiah.…

We see that it was Joseph the husband of Mary that was the subject not Mary. With interjections and descriptive phrases and identifiers, you can remove them from the sentence without changing the meaning of the sentence itself. They are there simply to clarify the sentence. In Matthew 1:16 the phrase set apart by commas ‘the husband of Mary’ is just such a clarifying clause! It is there to clarify which “Joseph” was the biological father of Yahusha. When you take that phrase out the meaning remains the same.  

This entire lineage was Joseph’s, it did not magically switch over to Miriam at the very end!

Matthew 1
16 and Jacob the father of Joseph of whom was born Yahusha

However, the way we are taught this verse is a violation of the structure of the English Language AND the conventions used 2000 years ago to identify a person without having a last names! We are taught that the lineage in Matthew is of Yahusha’s STEP Father and they use the interjection to say that it was “to Mary was born Yahusha” as if that phrase was added to change the entire meaning of the sentence from Joseph over to Mary. They ignore the commas all together as if it reads:

Matthew 1
16 and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary of whom was born Yahusha, who is called the Messiah.

And we fall for it every time!

This is the way it reads:

Matthew 1 - NKJV
16 And Jacob begot Joseph (the husband of Mary), of whom (Joseph is still the subject not Mary) was born Yahusha who is called the Messiah.

We are also taught in error, that the line of Solomon was denied the birth of a King to fulfill the promise to David because of the “curse of Jechonias” to somehow disqualify Yahusha from being the biological son of Joseph. I will address that false teaching next.


The Spirit of Prophecy,

the Restoration of the Throne and the Priesthood,

and the Curse of Jechonias

Yahusha had to restore both the Throne of David and the Zadok Priesthood or he is NOT the Messiah. In order to set the stage for the coming Melchi Tzedek (Ruling Zadok Priest) to RESTORE the throne and the priesthood, Yahuah suspended both the Throne of David and the office of High Priest. I am not going to go into all the details in this. *Note, anyone who is interested can read my books on this subject or my website. The important point here, is PROPHECY! Prophecy is the Testimony that Yahusha is the Messiah.

Revelation 19:10

At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, "Don't do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the Testimony of Yahusha. Worship Yahuah Alone! For it is the Spirit of prophecy Who bears Testimony to Yahusha."

This is extremely important. There is no prophecy to bear witness to this extra-Biblical mythical priesthood of the King of Salem called “The Melchizedek Priesthood”. No Promises to that bloodline, no genealogy, no prophecy… nothing. It simply does not exist. However, The Zadok Priesthood of Aaron is RIPE with prophesies and Promises from which Yahusha is proven the Messiah and given the right to Rule and Mediate and Inherit by Bloodlines the title: “Melchi Tzedek or “The Ruling Zadok High Priest”.

The false doctrine that Jesus is the Incarnate God born outside of the seed of Joseph alone disqualifies “Jesus Christ” from being the true Messiah. The true Messiah was ‘foretold’ by the Prophets of Yahuah as the one who would restore the ‘Throne of David’, being a direct blood descendant of David through Solomon. That bloodline runs through Yahusha’s father Joseph! The Throne is not passed to “step children” it is passed to the first-born son by blood, so if Yahusha is not the biological son of Yahseph (Joseph), then The Throne went to Yahusha’s brother James (Yaakov). It is THAT bloodline that is the Witness of Yahuah and the Testimony that Yahusha is the Messiah… BLOOD.

Let’s take a look at the prophecies Yahusha must Fulfill by blood to be The Messiah concerning the Throne of David. Below, we see that Yahuah Prophesied a “Righteous Branch” that would restore both the ‘Throne of David’ and the ‘Priesthood of Aaron and the Levites’ within the context of Yahushaic Covenant. There would come one whose right by bloodline it is to RESTORE the ‘Throne and the Priesthood’ from their fallen states:

Jeremiah 33

14 ‘Behold, the days are coming,’ says Yahuah, ‘that I will perform that good thing which I have Promised to the House of Israel and to the House of Judah (referring to The Yahushaic Covenant, see Jeremiah 31 where The Law would be written on our hearts): 15 ‘In those days and at that time I will cause to grow up (in the bloodline) to David a ‘Branch of Righteousness’ (i.e. Righteous Branch, a reference to Virgo in The Heavenly Scroll!); He shall execute Judgment and Righteousness in the Earth. 16 In those days Judah will be saved, And Jerusalem will dwell safely. And this is the name by which he will be called: Yahuah OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS (or His Righteous King i.e. ‘Melchi Tzedek’)… 17 “For thus says Yahuah: ‘David shall never lack a man to sit on the Throne of the House of Israel; 18 nor shall the Priests, the Levites (ONLY the House of Zadok, Ezekiel 44:15-16), lack a man (of the House of Zadok) to offer burnt offerings before Me, to kindle grain offerings, and to sacrifice continually (Promise to The House of Zadok, Ezekiel 44:24).’”

Now consider a much-misunderstood passage of prophecy. If you will begin reading at the 18th verse of the 21st chapter of Ezekiel, you will see plainly that Yahuah is speaking of the captivity of Judah by the King of Babylon. And, beginning in the 25th verse, He says:

Ezekiel 21:25-27

25 "And thou profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end, thus saith Yahuah your God; REMOVE THE DIADEM, AND TAKE OFF THE CROWN (as did happen, through the first half of Jeremiah’s commission): this [the crown] shall not be the same: EXALT him that is low, and ABASE him that is high. I will OVERTURN, OVERTURN, OVERTURN, it: and it shall be no more, until he comes whose right it is; and I will give it to him." (this is a reference to the Messiah who would RESTORE the Kingly Line)

This prophecy in fact predicts the interruption of the Throne of David reflected in Amos 9: 11-12 and Acts 15: 16-18. Amos prophesies what will happen when the Messiah returns:

Amos 9: 11-12

"On that day (at the return of the Messiah) I will raise up the House of David (the bloodline of David), which has fallen down, and repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old; that they may possess the Remnant of Edom, and all the Gentiles who are called by My Name," says Yahuah Who does this thing.

Simon Declared the prophecy in Amos to those in Jerusalem in Acts 15: 16-18. Jeremiah repeats this prophecy concerning Remnant Israel in Jeremiah 23:5-6. If Yahusha is the true Messiah, then he would be, by blood Witness of Yahuah, the Fulfillment of these prophecies and restore ‘both’ the Throne of David and the Priesthood of The House of Zadok by his bloodline. Yahusha was anointed King of Israel and High Priest of Israel directly by Yahuah when he was in the desert after being Mikveh’d (Baptized) by John. We see a “vision” of this event in Zechariah Chapter 3.

The Curse of Jechonias

While it is clear that Yahuah brought judgment on the Kingly Line of David and cast it to the ground. It is even MORE clear, through prophecy, of the coming Messiah that Yahuah would RESTORE that Kingly Line of David/Solomon. Yahuah’s promise to David was ETERNAL to be fulfilled by the Messiah. It was CONDITIONAL to every King.  Later King’s rebelled and Yahuah, while keeping the ETERNAL promise alive to David, disciplined the Kings and Israel for rebellion: 

I Kings 8:25
w Yahuah, God of Israel, keep for your servant David my father the PROMISES you made to him when you said, ´You shall never fail to have a man to sit before me on the throne of Israel, IF ONLY your sons are careful in all they do to walk before me as you have done! 

In other words, Yahuah made it clear that there would be discipline, and the throne would be suspended if all the Kingly Line were not obedient.

I Kings 9:2-7

“Now, IF YOU WALK BEFORE ME as your father David walked, in integrity of heart and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded you, AND IF YOU KEEP MY STATUTES AND MY JUDGMENTS, THEN I WILL ESTABLISH THE THRONE OF YOUR KINGDOM OVER ISRAEL FOREVER, as I promised David your father, saying, ´You shall not fail to have a man on the throne of Israel.´ BUT if you or your sons at all turn from following Me, and do NOT keep My commandments and My statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods and worship them, THEN I WILL CUT OFF [DESTROY] ISRAEL FROM THE LAND which I have given them; and this house [Temple] which I have sanctified for My name I will cast out of My sight. Israel will be a proverb and a byword among all peoples.”

Which is exactly what happened. NOW the RESTORATION of both the Kingly Line AND the Priestly Line was foretold to be accomplished through the Messiah: 

Jeremiah 33 Verses 17-18

For thus says Yahuah: ´David shall NEVER LACK a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel; NOR SHALL THE PRIESTS, THE LEVITES, LACK A MAN TO OFFER BURNT OFFERINGS BEFORE ME, to kindle grain offerings AND TO SACRIFICE CONTINUALLY.´ 

We see Yahuah make a vow to restore both the Throne and the Priesthood through Melchizedek, a genetic fulfillment and heir to both the throne and the Zadok Priesthood.

Now consider a much misunderstood passage of prophecy. If you will begin reading at the 18th verse of the 21st chapter of Ezekiel, you will see plainly that the Eternal is here speaking of the captivity of Judah by the king of Babylon. And, beginning in the 25th verse, He says:

Ezekiel 21:18

"And thou profane wicked prince of Israel [Zedekiah], whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end, thus saith Yahuah God; REMOVE THE DIADEM, AND TAKE OFF THE CROWN [as did happen, through the first half of Jeremiah´s commission]: this [the crown] shall not be the same: EXALT him that is low, and ABASE him that is high. I will OVERTURN, OVERTURN, OVERTURN, it: and it shall be no more, until he comes whose right it is; and I will give it to him.", this a reference to the Messiah who would RESTORE the Kingly Line.

This prophecy, in fact, predicts the same INTERRUPTION IN THE REIGN OF THE THRONE OF DAVID reflected in Amos 9: 11-12 and Acts 15: 16-18.

Ezekiel 21: 27

"Take off the crown...A RUIN, RUIN, RUIN I WILL MAKE IT; THERE SHALL NOT BE A TRACE OF IT until he comes whose right it is (by bloodline); and to him will I give it" 

Amos prophesies what will happen when the Messiah returns:

Amos 9: 11-12

"On that day [at the return of the Messiah] I will raise up the tabernacle of David (bloodline through Solomon the Kingly Line), which has fallen down, and repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old; that they may possess the remnant of Edom, and all the Gentiles who are called by My name," says Yahuah who does this thing.

Acts 15: 16-18 we find this repeated: "After this I will return and will REBUILD THE TABERNACLE [HOUSE, DYNASTY] OF DAVID which has fallen down. I will REBUILD ITS RUINS, and I will SET IT UP, so that the rest of mankind may seek Yahuah, even all the Gentiles who are called by My name, says Yahuah who does all these things."   

Jeremiah 23:5-6:

"Behold, the days are coming," says Yahuah, "that I will raise to (the bloodline of) David (through Solomon) a BRANCH of righteousness; a KING SHALL REIGN and prosper, and execute judgment and righteousness in the earth. In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell safely; now this is His name by which He will be called: Yahuah OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS."

Now you know the full story. The Kingly Line AND Priestly Line were judged, both lines were restored in Yahusha! Matthew documents the restoration of the Kingly Line. Luke documents the restoration of the Priestly line.

Now let us witness Yahusha restore the Zadok Line of High Priests to the Eternal Position.



Yahusha Consecrated Ruling Zadok High Priest by Yahuah

Zechariah 3 - Clean Garments for The High Priest, Yahusha

1 Then he showed me Yahusha the High Priest standing before the Angel of Yahuah, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him. 2 Yahuah (through His proxy The Angel before whom stood Yahusha and Satan) said to Satan, “Yahuah rebuke you, Satan! Yahuah, Who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you (because Satan has just offered Yahusha to take Jerusalem by force as KING if he would abandon his mission as Passover Lamb)! Is not this man a burning stick (starving) snatched from the fire (of the hot sun on the desert floor)?”


3 Now Yahusha was dressed in filthy clothes (metaphor of sin) as he stood before the Angel. 4 The Angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.” Then Yahuah said to Yahusha, “See (after taking off his filthy rags), I have taken away your sin (fifthly rags, Isaiah 64:6), and I will put fine garments (of the Zadok High Priest) on you.” 5 Then I said, “Put a clean turban (of the Zadok High Priest) on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him (in the garments of the Zadok High Priest), while the Angel of Yahuah stood by.


6 The Angel of Yahuah gave this charge to Yahusha: 7 “This is what Yahuah Almighty says (again Yahuah speaking through His proxy Angel): ‘If (Yahuah makes a conditional Promise) you will walk in Obedience to me (as The Branch foretold in The Heavenly Scroll) and keep My Requirements (The Torah), then (here is the Promise if he keeps The Torah and obeys the Will of Yahuah) you will govern My House (i.e. King of Israel... ‘MELCHI’) and have charge of My Courts (in My Eternal Temple, i.e. ‘TZEDEK’), and I will give you a place (as Ruling Zadok High Priest of Israel aka Melchi Tzedek at the right hand of Yahuah) among these standing here.


8 “‘Listen, High Priest Yahusha, you and your associates seated (who came) before you (probably Adam, Enoch, Moses, Elijah, etc.), who (those seated before him) are men symbolic of things to come (physical to Spiritual parallels of The Messiah): I am going to bring (you, Yahusha) My Servant (from this point forward), the ‘Branch’ (he is The Messiah). 9 See, the stone I have set in front of Yahusha! There are seven fountains of Living Water on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,’ says Yahuah Almighty, ‘and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day (the day Yahusha, in Obedience, dies as Passover Lamb).


10 “‘In that day each of you will invite your neighbor to sit under your vine and fig tree,’ declares Yahuah Almighty.”




The “Testimony” of Yahusha the Messiah

There is no “priesthood” outside of the one established by Yahuah through Aaron. Yahuah’s Promise to Aaron is ETERNAL and it is not superseded by a mythical priesthood called The Melchizedek Priesthood stemming from the King of Salem! Below, I will demonstrate all the Promises of Yahuah to Mediate Eternally were given to the bloodline of Aaron ONLY then narrowed down through The House of Zadok ONLY. This is the bloodline of Promise, the bloodline of Authority, the bloodline RIPE with The Spirit of Prophecy giving Yahusha the Authority to serve Yahuah as Eternal High Priest of The House of Zadok... NOT the mythical “Melchizedek Priesthood”. We see in The Torah that Yahuah established the Aaronic Priesthood as THE Eternal Priesthood/Covenant.

Numbers 18:19

Whatever is set aside from the Holy Offerings the Israelites present to Yahuah I give to you and your sons and daughters as your perpetual share. It is an Everlasting Covenant of Salt before Yahuah for both you and your offspring."

Yahuah does not break His Promises, nor does any other Priesthood serve without such Authority given it by Promises made by Yahuah. The Tanakh records how prior to the death of Aaron at Hor HaHar, he was accompanied by his brother Moses, as well as his (Aaron's) elder son Eleazar and younger son Ithamar. Upon entry to the cave (where Aaron died) he witnessed as his brother Moses dressed his elder son Eleazer, with the clothes of the High Priesthood, as initiation to High Priesthood. This initiation ceremony served as the catalyst for the stipulation that all future candidates of High Priesthood be patrilineal descendants of Eleazar, the elder son of Aaron, and not Ithamar - the younger son. Similarly, the Hebrew Bible relates how, at the time Phinehas son of Eleazar appeased Yahuah’s anger, he merited the Divine blessing of Yahuah that would serve as the foundation and Authority for Yahusha to serve as Eternal High Priest, Mediate the “Renewed” Covenant, and make Atonement for humanity, as Yahusha would later be a descendent of this bloodline through his mother Miriam, as I will show later:

Numbers 25

13 Phineas the son of Eleazar the son of Aaron the Kohen. Behold I give to him my Covenant of Peace (Promise of the Renewed Covenant), and these Promises be his and his progeny after him (a) Covenant of Everlasting Priesthood in turn of his zealousness for of his God, and he (and his progeny was given the right to) atoned for the sons of Israel.

This is the literal Authority by which Yahusha serves as High Priest to Mediate The Yahushaic Covenant and Atone! Not by some weird mythical priesthood outside of the Torah/Promises made by Yahuah. We see Malachi prophecy the coming Messiah would be this progeny of Zadok and would be the Messenger of The Covenant of Peace (The Yahushaic Covenant) prophesied in Numbers 25:10-13…

Malachi 3

Behold, I will send My Messenger, and he shall prepare The Way before Me: and Yahuah, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his Temple, even the Messenger of the Covenant (Numbers 25:10-13), whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith Yahuah of Hosts.

Although Yahuah would suspend the Priestly duties of the Aaronic Priesthood, due to rebellion of the Priests, He Promised, just as the sun shines in the day, and the moon glows in the night, He Will Restore the Aaronic Priesthood:

Jeremiah 33:20

So says Yahuah, if you will cease My Covenant the day and My Covenant the night -that there be no more day and night in their times... so too My Covenant will cease... the Levites (sons of Zadok specifically) and the Priests My Servants

We then see Yahuah Promise to raise up a reliable Priest after His own heart, like a King (David) was raised up after Yahuah’s Own Heart.

Samuel 1 2:35
And I will erect Myself a reliable Priest (who acts) with My Heart, and with My Soul he will do, and I Will Build him a reliable household, and he will go before My Anointed all of days

This prophecy was ultimately Fulfilled in the era of King David when Zadok from the progeny of Eleazar was appointed as High Priest. The Midrash Rabba relates how Zadok and offspring were Righteous in their personal actions and service to the Temple to the point that if Aaron and his sons present at the era of Zadok and sons, Zadok and sons would supersede them in quality (Koheleth Rabbah Chap. 1). Zadok functioned first as High Priest in Solomon's Temple, as opposed to the Tabernacle, which was mobile, and also busied himself with establishing the twenty-four Priestly divisions, he merited that the preferred lineage of Eleazar be called by his name, "the Sons of Zadok (as opposed to being titled the Sons of Eleazar), and the entire concept of the twenty-four divisions be attributed to him (Rashi to Ezekiel 43:19).

We see the significance of The Zadok Priesthood of the Aaronic Line (not the mythical Melchizedek Priesthood) as they are entrusted with Righteous Judgment in the coming Kingdom:

Ezekiel 44:24

And the Priests, the Levites, the sons of Zadok.. My Nation they should instruct between Holy and mundane, and between impure and pure - they should cause them to know them. And on quarrels they should stand to judge using My Justice and judge him. And My Law and My Statutes in all My Feasts they should guard and My Sabbaths they should Sanctify

Ezekiel did not prophesy this of The Melchizedek Priesthood (because there is no such thing), but The Zadok Priesthood! Ezekiel goes on the explain how The Zadok Priesthood is awarded the land around The Temple itself in the coming Kingdom. As per the prophetic vision of Ezekiel, regarding the divisions of the Land of Israel to the Twelve Tribes of Israel and to the Messiah, the apportioning of a swath of land to the Sons of Zadok around the Temple Mount is mentioned.

This swath begins from the southern end of the Temple Mount heading South and from the opposite edge of the Temple Mount leading North, then leading West and likewise to the East.

The blue shaded area below is the land given to The Zadok Priesthood.

The blue shaded area was given to The Zadok Priesthood in the Kingdom to come. Nothing given to a mythical "Melchizedek Priesthood"!

There is no mention at all of The Melchizedek Priesthood of the King of Salem anywhere, because there is no such priesthood or bloodline.

Yahusha’s Authority to serve Yahuah as Eternal High Priest is derived from a Promise Yahuah made to The House of Zadok. Zadok was the first High Priest to serve in Solomon’s Temple. Zadok was the High Priest who stayed loyal to Yahuah’s anointing on King David. As a result, Yahuah blessed The House of Zadok to be the exclusive ‘bloodline’ from which High Priests would be selected, and the ‘bloodline’ from which would come the Eternal High Priest, Yahusha the Messiah.

Ezekiel 43:19

19 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 Yahuah.

We see, in the book of Ezekiel, that The House of Zadok would be the bloodline of the final Priesthood in the Third Temple, Yahusha being the Eternal High Priest. Yahuah is showing Ezekiel the final Temple, then declares the Levites must serve in the ‘outer court’ and ONLY The House of Zadok will be allowed to minister directly to Yahuah, this directly contradicts The Melchizedek Priesthood teaching, and there is no such priesthood in Scripture or in prophecy.

Ezekiel 44

10“‘The Levites who went far from Me when Israel went astray and who wandered from Me after their idols must bear the consequences of their sin. 11 They may serve in My Sanctuary, having charge of the Gates of The Temple and serving in it; they may slaughter the burnt offerings and sacrifices for the people and stand before the people and serve them. 12 But because they served them in the presence of their idols and made the people of Israel fall into sin, therefore I have sworn with uplifted hand that they must bear the consequences of their sin, declares the Sovereign Yahuah. 13 They are not to come near to serve Me as Priests or come near any of My Holy things or My Most Holy Offerings; they must bear the shame of their detestable practices. 14 And I will appoint them to Guard The Temple for all the work that is to be done in it. 15“‘But the Levitical Priests, who are descendants of Zadok and who guarded My Sanctuary when the Israelites went astray from Me, are to come near to minister before Me; they are to stand before Me to offer sacrifices of fat and blood, declares the Sovereign Yahuah. 16 They (The House of Zadok) alone are to enter My sanctuary; they alone are to come near My Table to minister before Me and serve Me as Guards (Zadok Priesthood ONLY, no Melchizedek Priesthood allowed as it never existed)

This is the “Zadok Priesthood” Eternally serving Yahuah, not some mythical priesthood stemming from Shem or the King of Salem. They and “they alone” enter into Yahuah’s Sanctuary, not some other bloodline and priesthood stemming from the King of Salem. We see Sha’ul understood that Yahusha was the Zadok High Priest prophesied to Mediate the “Covenant of Peace”

Colossians 1:20

"And, having made (valid the Covenant of) Peace (given The House of Zadok, Numbers 25:10-13) through the blood of his stake (blood consummates Covenants), by him to reconcile all things unto himself (as The High Priest with the Authority to Atone, Numbers 25:10-13) ...."

It is Yahusha, the Zadok High Priest, given the right to Atone that Fulfills the Promise made to the House of Zadok in Numbers 15:13:

1 John 1:7
the blood of Yahusha the Messiah, the Son of Yahuah, cleanses us from all sin (the Authority to make that Atonement is given in Numbers 25:10-13 ,to the Eternal Zadok High Priest!).




Yahusha III and the Daughters of Jerusalem

“But Sha’ul! Yahusha is not a descendent of The House of Zadok, he is of the Tribe of Judah!”. This is one of the first objections. The Jews have denied half of the family tree by only considering the mother’s lineage. To be a “Jew” you have to prove your grandmother was a “Jew”. To say this is absurd is an understatement. Every human being who was “born according to the flesh” including Yahusha has both the DNA of the father and the mother. So the claim that Yahusha cannot serve both as High Priest and King is not only contrary to science, but also to Scripture and The Heavenly Scroll!

This is where the real value of anointed teachers comes into play. The genealogies of Yahusha were destroyed intentionally by the Jews and the Romans in order to hide that he was in fact a Zadok High Priest! We are only given the genealogy of his father’s side and his mother’s father’s side, his paternal lineage. Inheritance and bloodlines run through BOTH the paternal and maternal bloodlines. Since we do not have his maternal lineage preserved, we have to trust that Yahuah reveals this lineage preserved in the historical record. This is in fact the case, but rarely ever taught to the people.

In my book Melchizedek and The Passover Lamb, I show how this historical record dating back to Yahusha (and even before of The House of Zadok) fits into Yahusha’s lineage. We do have the lineage of the High Priest, all the way up to the last Zadok Priest Yahusha III, who presided over the rebuilding of the 2nd Temple. He was chosen as High Priest to restore The House of Zadok to the office, and to produce the coming Messiah through carefully cultivated arranged marriages between the Zadok line and the Davidian Dynasty. Yahusha III was the son of the last High Priest presiding in Babylonian Captivity YahuZadok.

We also have historical records kept of that time period of Yahusha III. We can reverse engineer Yahusha’s maternal lineage knowing what we know through historical records and prove that Yahusha the Messiah was the great grandson of Yahusha III and heir to The House of Zadok!

We see Yahusha speak directly to “the Daughters of Jerusalem”

Luke 23:28

Yahusha turned and said to them, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children.

You will be hard pressed to find a teacher who even addresses this passage, much less can tell you the overwhelming significance of it!

Who are these mysterious women called The Daughters of Jerusalem? Why were they called that? Why would Yahusha address them personally in the way he did?


These women were Yahusha’s aunts. They were the daughters of Yahusha III who had put them into protective custody of The Temple away from Herod’s wrath and women in protective custody of The Temple were called “Daughters of Jerusalem”! You see, Herod knew the Messiah would be a Zadok High Priest, so to prevent the birth of the coming King, he had Yahusha III executed. Yahusha III anticipated Herod would do this, because Herod was already killing off all the aspirants to the throne of David called “young lions of the Tribe of Judah” in what is called ‘pogroms’. So Yahusha III hid his 3 daughters and put them into custody of the Temple, and gave them new (false) genealogies to hide that they were his daughters. Then Yahusha III arranged young men from the Davidian Dynasty to marry his 3 daughters in arranged marriages to produce the Messiah with the genetic mix to be Melchi Tzedek. One of his 3 daughters were Elizabeth the mother of John the Baptist, and another was Hanna, the mother of Miriam.

We see Yahusha was taken to the Temple as a young child, to see his grandmother Hanna (the daughter of Yahusha III put into protective custody of The Temple) and she blessed her grandson. Notice the lineage of Hanna was changed for her protection.

Luke 2
36 There was also a Prophet, Anna, the daughter of Penuel (she was actually the daughter of Yahusha III, her identity was hidden), of the tribe of Asher (this is her new identity). She was very old; she had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage (not a long marriage), 37 and then was a widow (by Herod because she married a Davidian Prince who was then killed by Herod like Yahusha II was) until she was eighty-four. She never left the Temple (she was in protective custody) but Worshipped night and day, fasting and praying (for the lives of her children and grandchildren who were being hunted by Herod). 38 Coming up to them at that very moment (when she beheld Yahusha her grandson), she gave thanks to Yahuah and spoke about the child (her grandson) to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem.

Hanna (Anna) knew Yahusha was the heir to the office of Zadok High Priest. There is only one reason Yahseph and Miriam would make a special trip to The Temple to see this old woman. She was Miriam’s mother, Yahusha’s grandmother! So, we know for a fact, that Yahusha was a direct descendent of Yahusha III and in direct line after John the Baptist to be consecrated Zadok High Priest of Israel. We have reconstructed the lineage chart of The House of Zadok tracing it directly to Yahusha who Fulfilled it!







Witness of Bloodline

Not only must the explicit Promises made by Yahuah, and The Spirit of Prophecy substantiate Yahusha’s claim to Messiah, King, and High Priest, so must the bloodline! The Witnesses of Yahuah that Yahusha is the Son of Yahuah is defined below as Water, Blood, and Spirit… They are theTestimony of Yahusha the Messiah”; but what do they mean?

1 John 5:1-20

1 Everyone who believes that Yahusha is the Messiah is Begotten of Yahuah, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. 2 This is how we know that we love the children of Yahuah: by loving Yahuah and keeping His Law. 3 In fact, this is Love for Yahuah: to keep His Law. And that His Laws are not burdensome, 4 for everyone Begotten of Yahuah overcomes the world. This is the conquering Spirit that has overcome the world, even our Faith (in the Promises of Yahuah). 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Yahusha is the son of Yahuah (not Yahuah in the flesh). (but how do we know for sure that Yahusha is the Son of Yahuah?) 6 This (Yahusha) is the one who came by Water (the womb of a woman i.e. HUMAN) and Blood(line to fulfill the ‘Scarlet Thread of Redemption’)—Yahusha the Messiah. He did not come by Water only, but by Water and Blood. And it is the Spirit who Testifies (upon being Mikveh’d by Fire which is filled with the Ruach, Yahuah Testified “this is My son in whom I am well pleased, Matthew 3:17), because the Spirit is the TRUTH. 7 For there are three that Testify: 8 the Spirit of Holiness, the Water and the Blood; and these three are in agreement (that Yahusha is the Son of Yahuah).

What is the Testimony Yahuah gave that identifies Yahusha uniquely as the His Son? That Testimony is Yahusha the Messiah was born human (Water through the womb of a woman, in the flesh), with the Bloodline to be King and High Priest, and Begotten by the Spirit of Holiness.

Born, Bloodline, Begotten = Water, Blood, Spirit!


Below the Apostle Sha’ul defines the Testimony Yahuah gave to us that proves that Yahusha is The Messiah.

Romans 1 - The Witness of Water, Bloodline, Spirit

1 Paul, a bondservant of Yahusha the Messiah, called to be an apostle, separated to the Gospel of Yahuah (to Proclaim The Kingdom of Yahuah through Yahusha the Messiah) 2 which Yahuah Promised before through His Prophets in the Holy Scriptures (the Holy Scriptures are The Torah and Prophets, Yahusha did not pre-exist he was ‘foreknown’ in The Heavenly Scroll), 3 concerning His Son Messiah Yahusha our King, who was born of the bloodline of David (Blood) and born according to the flesh (Water), 4 and Begotten (Declared Divine) to be the Son of God with Power according to the Spirit of Holiness (Spirit), by the Resurrection from the dead.

Sha’ul is saying that Yahusha’s claim to Messiah is founded, first and foremost on the Prophets in the Holy Scriptures that ‘foretold of the coming human Messiah’. They foretold of a human Messiah who would be a “Priest/King” known as Melchi Tzedek which means “Ruling Zadok Priest”. Sha’ul goes on to prove Yahusha is that prophesied ‘Messiah Melchi Tzedek’ because he was born according the flesh i.e. water, born into the bloodline of the seed of David i.e. blood, and begotten through resurrection i.e. Spirit. One of those Divine Witnesses is bloodline: Yahusha was the descendant and heir to the ‘Throne of David’ by blood through Joseph’s bloodline. Yahusha was heir to the office of ‘Zadok High Priest’ being the great grandson (through Mary’s maternal line) of the High Priest over the rebuilding of the Second Temple Yahusha III. So by blood Yahusha Fulfilled the Requirements that the Messiah would restore the Priesthood and the Throne of David by blood! I wrote an entire book on that Testimony. Please read, ‘Melchizedek and The Passover Lamb’.




The King of Salem is Not Shem

Shem certainly is in ‘The Scarlet Thread of Redemption’ as Yahusha is descended from Shem.

Luke 3:36

36 son of Cainan, son of Arphaxad, son of Shem, son of Noah, son of Lamech,

That in no way implies any type of Priesthood descended down from Shem outside of Aaron to Yahusha! Prior to the nation of Israel becoming a nation, there was no position of High Priest, each man served Yahuah in that position over their families/tribes. That is a “tradition of the Pharisees (Rabbinical Judaism)” found in the Talmud which nullifies the Word of Yahuah which establishes Aaron, through Zadok, as the Priesthood inherited by Yahusha...

Mark 7:13

Thus you nullify the word of Yahuah by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that."

Sha’ul specifically states we do not have the King of Salem’s genealogy. That is why we do not know who his mother and father was or when he was born or died. This rules out Shem, because we know exactly who his father and mother was and when he was born and died:

Genesis 5:32

After Noah was 500 years old, he became the father of Shem, Ham and Japheth.

Sha’ul was a Torah Expert and would know we do have Shem’s genealogy in great detail. If the King were “Shem” Sha’ul would have simply said so and would never have claimed we don’t have Shem’s genealogy. This “idea” that Shem was the King of Salem comes from the Talmud, NOT The Torah. According to some Jewish traditions (e.g., B. Talmud Nedarim 32b; Genesis Rabbah 46:7; Genesis Rabbah 56:10; Leviticus Rabbah 25:6; Numbers Rabbah 4:8.), Shem is believed to have been Melchizedek, King of Salem whom Abraham is recorded to have met after the battle of the four kings. This, however, is not stated in The Torah anywhere and Sha’ul definitely did not believe this “human tradition”, as I have shown. But we are being led to follow Rabbinical Judaism over The Yahushaic Covenant. Those Rabbis do not think Sha’ul’s writings are worth reading. So who do we follow? If you believe in The Melchizedek Priesthood you are following Jewish Tradition found in The Talmud!




Yahusha was born outside of ANY Divine “seed”

We are taught Yahusha Mediates as High Priest on the basis that he is a god, and that Yahuah planted some type of “Divine Seed” into Miriam and that qualifies Yahusha to carry on The Melchizedek Priesthood from Shem. The Scriptures deny that teaching outright, and even go so far as to identify that belief as the deceiving Spirit of the False Messiah.

Yahusha “came in the flesh”. In 1 Timothy 3:16 we see that “Yahusha was revealed in the flesh”. The phrase “in the flesh” means... “natural/physical origin (not Spiritual), born of natural origin ONLY, mere human/natural birth only... APART FROM DIVINE INFLUENCE”... The word translated “flesh” is g4561:

g4561 ‘sarki’ - Thayer:
2a) the body of a man
2b) used of natural or physical origin, generation or relationship 2b1) born of natural generation
4) the flesh, denotes mere human nature, the Earthly nature of man apart from Divine Influence, and therefore prone to sin and opposed to God.

So, as I have proven in this book many times, Yahusha “came in the flesh” and was not a demigod or “God in the flesh”! He was created human of natural origin, to two human parents outside of any “Divine Seed” or even “Divine Influence” ... Yahusha was not the continuation of some Divine Priesthood called, The Melchizedek Priesthood, granted him by some “Divine Seed” as the reincarnation of the King of Salem.





The teaching today of The Melchizedek Priesthood is based on human tradition, Jewish Tradition, The Talmud, and The Spirit of the False Messiah known as “Incarnation”. It is not based on sound Scripture, but rather sound bite implied mistranslated Scripture and misunderstanding of ‘The Plan of Salvation’ through bloodlines (The Scarlet Thread of Redemption). Yahusha was The Ruling Zadok, the Messiah who was the Fulfillment of the Promises to the House of David to Rule Eternally, and the House of Zadok to be Eternal High Priest. There is no such thing as "The Melchizedek Priesthood" outside of the Promised Priesthood to Aaron as Yahusha Rules/Mediates based on clear Promises made by Yahuah to very carefully cultivated bloodlines and PROPHECY (his Testimony).

I have shown ‘The Scarlet Thread of Redemption’ flows down through Abraham/Isaac/Jacob and NOT the King of Salem, then forks with the Throne going to David and the High Priesthood going to David's High Priest Zadok. Then both the Throne and the Priesthood fell into ruin, only to be prophesied that both would be RESTORED genetically in the Messiah. The Witness of Yahuah that Yahusha is the Messiah is WATER (born human through the womb, in the flesh outside of any Divine Influence), BLOODline (Fulfill the genetic Promises to David and Zadok making him the Melchi Tzedek as he inherited that title through bloodlines), and SPIRIT as he would be Begotten Divine by the Ruach to serve those posts Eternally as Promised.

The Melchizedek Priesthood literally destroys that Divine Witness!


We are being taught to put our Faith in ANOTHER priesthood based on "Incarnation" and there is no such priesthood, no promises made to that bloodline, and no prophesies to substantiate that priesthood at all... none.

The Melchizedek Priesthood teaching robs Yahusha of his right to serve Eternally as High Priest, Mediate the Yahushaic Covenant of Peace, and Atone for humanity which were all Promised to The Zadok Line of Aaronic High Priests.... putting your Faith in some other priesthood might very well cost you your Eternal Life, as that priesthood has no authority at all to Atone for you sins!
