Was it just because Yeshua is the King of Heaven, coming from the family of king David, from the tribe of Judah, through the virgin Miriam’s father? No!
Was it because Yeshua is also the High Priest of Heaven, Melchi Zedek (my King of Righteousness), coming from the high priest family of Zadok (righteous) of Aaron, through the virgin Miriam’s mother? Yes!
a body You have prepared for Me … Hebrews 10:5
Yeshua freely offered His sinless body for all of us, which contained all the above as a Sacrifice of Love!
Yeshua’s sinless Blood Sacrifice of Himself, as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, was because Yeshua is a Son from the only Aaronic priest family that God allowed to come before Himself, and also to make a blood sacrifice, the high priest family called Zadok!
This Truth about Yeshua coming from the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron is not being taught today and yet it can be found in ten separate Scriptural texts in the New and Old Covenants. Let’s look at some of these texts.
We find this Truth of Yeshua coming from Zadok of Aaron in Luke 1. Miriam, the virgin, had a father from king David’s family (Luke 1:32) and a mother from the same family of Aaron as her relative Elisheva. Luke 1:36 This word relative is from the Greek, and it means a blood relative. In Hebrew this word relative is ‘karov’, which means a close relative. But what family of Aaron were they from? God clearly told us in Luke 1:6, the family that was righteous before God. Only those of the Aaronic high priest family called Zadok (Ezekiel 44:15, 16) could come before God.
And also the Hebrew name zadok means righteous. (Luke 1:75) Yeshua was never an Aaronic priest, for He had no earthly blood father, but He is always from the two families of His mother.
Jeremiah 33:18 “ ‘… nor shall the priests, the Levites, lack a Man before Me to offer burnt offerings, to kindle grain offerings, and to do sacrifice continually (kol ha yamim).’” Eternal Blood Sacrifice
Yeshua is this Man before God from Aaron who does the Eternal Blood Sacrifice, coming from the Zadokite high priest family!
In Jeremiah 33:14-24, God makes it very clear that the LORD our Righteousness and the Branch (Tzemach) of Righteousness would be coming to earth thru these two families, David’s family and also the only family of Aaron that could come before God, the family called Zadok. (read Ezekiel 43:19 and Ezek 44:15,16) These are the two families of the virgin, as prophesied in Isaiah 7:13, 14.
In Zechariah 3:1- 9, we see the Angel of the LORD (Yeshua) announcing the Messiah, the Branch (Tzemach) to the Aaronic high priest named Yehoshua, of the Zadokite family. And then we are told in verse 8 that God’s Servant the Branch (Tzemach), removes the sins of this high priest (3:3-5), and also cleanses the land from all sin (3:9). These versus from 3:1-9 are a prophesy of Yeshua’s first coming to earth and giving His Life as the Son of Man, coming from Yehoshua’s Zadokite high priest family.
And in Zechariah 6:11-13 This Man would be the Branch, (Tzemach) coming from Yehoshua’s high priest family of high priest Zadok, whose father is Jeho-Zadok. He (the Branch) will build the Temple of the LORD (repeated twice), and He alone will bear the Glory! This is Yeshua when He returns to earth the second time as the Son of God, as the King–High Priest (Melchi Zedek), reigning on His Throne over all the earth from Jerusalem; coming from these two families, king David’s and high priest Zadok’s.
Zechariah 9:9, 11 “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having Salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey. 9:11 Because of the Blood of your covenant I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit.” (This passage is a prophesy showing Yeshua’s first coming as the Son of Man.)
Zechariah 9:14 Then the LORD will be seen over them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning. The Lord GOD (Yeshua) will blow the Shofar, and go with whirlwinds from the south. 9:15 The LORD of hosts will defend them; they shall devour and subdue with slingstones. 9:16 The LORD their God will save them in that day, a the flock of His people. (Here we see Yeshua at His second coming, returning to earth as the Son of God.)
Also, if we were to track the Seed (Genesis 3:15) from Eve that went to Miriam, we discover this Seed ran through these two family lines, both the family of king David and also high priest Zadok, and then on to Miriam’s father and mother, and then through intermarriage Miriam was born, who by Holy Spirit begot Yeshua.
Other proofs of this Truth are found in the mysteries of the Man Melchi Zedek, when He first appeared to Abram. Genesis 14:18
Also many mysteries related to priest Zechariah and Elisheva and their son Yochanan, from this Aaronic priest family, Luke 1:9-20.
Let’s look closely at one scene of Yochanan at the Jordan River:
Herod had appointed his own two high priests for the Jerusalem Temple, Annas and Caiphas, who perhaps were from an Aaronic priest family. But they were not from the only Aaronic high priest family that God said He would allow as high priests, which was the Zadokite high priest family. (Ezekiel 43:18, 19 and 44:15, 16) Zadokites were the only high priests from 1000 B.C. to 165 B.C.
Yochanan had begun his ministry around Passover season, coming in the spirit and power of Eliyahu, at the legal age of 30, the age when Aaronic priests began ministry. Who was Yochanan? “A prophet, yes, and more than a prophet.” Matthew 11:9-15 and Luke 7:26-28 We know that His father Zechariah was an Aaronic priest. But who really was Yochanan? Yochanan was the mystery Zadokite high priest of Israel, as was his father Zechariah. As such he was the highest order of true priestly spiritual authority in Israel.
He was called by God to a very different kind of minister, out at the Jordan River area. Six months later, the time of the fall feasts of Israel, when his cousin Yeshua would soon be turning age 30, if Yochanan had been serving God in the Jerusalem Temple, his job as high priest would have been to carefully inspect the lamb which he would be offering for the Yom Kippur sacrifice in the Jerusalem Temple Holy of Holies. For Yochanan would later be announcing, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”
Then Yeshua came to Yochanan for His water baptism, which He needed to do in order to begin His earthly ministry for God.
Matthew 3:13 Then Yeshua came from Galilee to Yochanan at the Jordan to be baptized by him. 3:14 And Yochanan tried to prevent Him, saying, “I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?” 3:15 “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all Righteouness.” Matthew 3:15
What really happened that day out at the Jordan River to the Aaronic priesthood? For God said the Aaronic priesthood would become Eternal. How? Exodus 29:9; 40:13-15; Numbers 10: 8; Number 25:11-13; Deuteronomy 18:1, 2, 5; 1 Chronicles 23:13;
After Yeshua’s water baptism by Yochanan, He then went 40 days into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil, and after-wards He returned again to Yochanan at the Jordan River.
Now as we listen to Yochanan’s words when he sees Yeshua return, everything takes on a different meaning about what he said, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.”
Only God’s true Aaronic Zadok high priest could make such a statement. Every detail of Yochanan’s and Yeshua’s life had been perfectly arranged by God. This announcement by Yochanan of Yeshua as the Lamb of God was the beginning of the fulfillment of this Feast of Yom Kippur, for Yeshua’s Sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. However this will only be fulfilled on a future day when Yeshua returns to earth on Yom Kippur, saving all those who have repented and called on Him to be their Lord and Savior, but also destroying all the evil ones still alive on the earth who are Yeshua’s enemies, to completely remove all the sins of the world, before He begins His Millennial Reign on earth with His Bride.
Yochanan came in the spirit and power of Eliyahu to turn the hearts of the fathers (the Old Covenant religious Jews) to the children (the New Covenant believers in Yeshua), and the dis-obedient to the wisdom of the just. Luke 1:17 Perhaps once again another will be coming in the spirit and power of Eliyahu, this time to turn the hearts of the children (New Covenant Messianic Jewish and Gentile believers in Lord Yeshua) to the hearts of the fathers (the Old Covenant Orthodox religious Jews), so that God does not come and strike the land of Israel with a curse. Malachi 4:5, 6
Dominion over the works of the earth had originally been given by God to man. When the first man Adam, who was also the son of God (Luke 3:38) sinned, then man’s dominion over the works of the earth was lost. When Yeshua, the only begotten Son of God, the Man born from the virgin Miriam, who lived a perfect sinless life as a Man, only then after His death and Resurrection, as the first born from the dead (Revelation 1:5) was He, as the Son of Man able to redeem us & also the earth from Satan back to God.
Even though Yeshua came to earth as both the Son of God and the Son of Man, only as the Son of Man could Yeshua provide Atonement for both the sins of mankind and for the earth, because the earth had been given by God to man. But in Genesis 3:17 the earth had been cursed by God! And in Numbers 35:33, God said that the blood shed on the earth by man could not be atoned for except by man who shed it. Read Deuteronomy 32:43 prophesy.
So only the sinless flesh of a sinless Man could redeem both the sins of mankind and also the curse that God had originally spoken over the earth, along with the sin of all the blood that was shed on the earth by mankind, which could not be cleansed away.
Yeshua, through His heavenly Father by the Holy Spirit, was born as Heaven’s King and also the High Priest of the Most High God of the Order of Melchi Zedek (My King of Righteousness).
(Psalm 110:1,4) These titles were only confirmed upon Him at His water baptism in the Jordan River, after the Holy Spirit came upon Yeshua and God spoke, “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well pleased!” Luke 1:32; Matthew 3:17; Mark 1:11; Luke 3:22
Yeshua’s physical body from the virgin Miriam, was from the two families of Miriam’s parents, the family of king David from the tribe of Judah, thru the virgin Miriam’s father (Luke 1: 32, 33; and Hebrews 7:14) and the Aaronic high priest family of Yehoshua, of high priest Zadok of Aaron through the virgin Miriam’s mother. (Luke 1:5, 6, Luke 1:36; Luke 1:75; Jeremiah 33:18; Zechariah 3:8; and Zechariah 6:11-13)
Father Almighty God had done all things perfectly, especially in those things which related to His only begotten Son, Yeshua.
Yeshua is the perfect Man, the Lamb of God. Isaiah 53:4-7 He was God’s perfect Sacrifice and offering for all our sins.
Yeshua’s Blood sacrifice of Himself was totally honored by His Father, the Almighty God, because of who Yeshua really is as the High Priest of Heaven and the Son of Man and the Son of God. But also who Yeshua really is as a Son of the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron. This Truth of Yeshua’s Blood Sacrifice coming from Zadok of Aaron is not being taught, and thru the Holy Spirit, this whole Truth is what gives Yeshua’s Blood Infinite Power!
As the Son of Man, Yeshua’s Blood sacrifice and offering of Himself redeemed mankind from the curse of sin. But it also redeemed the earth from God’s curse of the earth in Genesis 3:17, and also from the centuries of blood shed on the earth by mankind, so that we are now able to become sons of God through Yeshua.
John 18:36 Yeshua answered, “My Kingdom is not of this world. If My Kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews …;” 18:37 Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Yeshua answered, “You say rightly that I am a King. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the Truth. Everyone who is of the Truth hears My voice.”
John 8:31 Then Yeshua said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My Word, you are My disciples indeed. 8:32 And you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free.”
Yeshua’s Blood is never separated from God, the Holy Spirit of Truth, who dwells within all true believers! (Hebrews 9:14)
1 John 5:6-8 This is He who came by water and blood, Yeshua the Messiah; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is Truth. 5:7 For there are three that bear witness in Heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. 5:8 And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the Water, and the Blood; and these three agree as one.
With the Holy Spirit revealing new revelations about Yeshua’s Blood coming from the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron, will this help release the Living Waters for the coming Great Revival?
John 7:37, 38 “out of his heart shall flow rivers of Living Water;”
Zechariah 14:8 … Living Waters shall flow from Jerusalem …
Will this knowledge of Yeshua’s full physical earthly identity be the Power key to release the Living Waters for the soon coming Great world Revival and Harvest of souls coming from Jerusalem?
For the Holy Spirit + the Word of God will bring Great Revival!
On the basis of Yeshua’s Blood sacrifice, God has prophesied: “But truly, as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the Glory of the LORD!” Numbers 14:21
“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.” Habakkuk 2:14
