"Get thee out" לֶךְ־לְךָ מֵאַרְצְךָ

Gen.12 [1] Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country , and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: [2] And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3] And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
4] So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.
5] And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
6] And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.
7] And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.

Matt.4[ 17] From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
18] And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
19] And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
20] And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
[21] And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.
22] And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.

Matt.8[ 18] Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other side.
19] And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
[20] And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
[21] And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
[22] But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

Matt.9[ 9] And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me . And he arose, and followed him.

Matt.16[ 24] Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Matt.19[ 16] And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
17] And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
18] He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
19] Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
20] The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?
21] Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
22] But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

Mark.2[ 14] And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him.

Mark.8[ 34] And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Mark.10[ 17] And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
18] And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
19] Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
20] And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
21] Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
[22] And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

Luke.5[ 27] And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me .

Luke.9[ 23] And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

[59] And he said unto another, Follow me . But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

Luke.18[ 22] Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.[ 23] And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
24] For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

John.1[ 43] The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.

John.10[ 27] My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me :

John.12[ 26] If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

John.13[ 36] Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.

John.21[ 19] This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.



Acts.7[ 1] Then said the high priest, Are these things so?
2] And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran,
3] And said unto him, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee.
[4] Then came he out of the land of the Chaldaeans, and dwelt in Charran: and from thence, when his father was dead, he removed him into this land, wherein ye now dwell.
5] And he gave him none inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child.
6] And God spake on this wise, That his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years.
7] And the nation to whom they shall be in bondage will I judge, said God: and after that shall they come forth, and serve me in this place.
8] And he gave him the covenant of circumcision: and so Abraham begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat the twelve patriarchs.

[38] This is he, ( Moses ) that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel ( Word of The Lord ) which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:
39] To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt,

Heb.10[ 38] Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back , my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

Luke.17[ 32] Remember Lot's wife. [33] Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
Gen.19 [26] But his wife looked back from behind him , and she became a pillar of salt.


the way satan works


[1] Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
2] And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

( Satan comes when you are weak, lacking, vulnerable )

[3] And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

Yeshua uses the Word.
[4] But he answered and said, It is written , Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Deut.8[ 3] And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live

Satan uses the Word ( Satan uses a area, situation or whatever that you are comfotable with to his advantage to cause you to sin.)

[5] Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
6] And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Pss.91[ 11] For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.[12 ] They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Yeshua uses the Word.
[7] Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Deut.6[ 16] Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.

Satan is relentless
[8] Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9] And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

You have to be even more relentless and stedfast in your stand ( even with a rebuke )

Yeshua uses the Word.
[10] Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan : for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Deut.26[ 10] And now, behold, I have brought the firstfruits of the land, which thou, O LORD, hast given me. And thou shalt set it before the LORD thy God, and worship before the LORD thy God :

Deut.10[ 20] Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve , and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.

Satan leaves, help comes fron God. You passed the test.
[11] Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.


Put on the "New" man and put off the "Old" man ( of sin )

Rom.6[ 1] What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2] God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
3] Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
4] Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
[5] For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
6] Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him , that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

Eph.2[ 15] Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;[16] And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Eph.4[ 20] But ye have not so learned Christ;[21] If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
22] That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
[23] And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
[24] And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness
25] Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
26] Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
27] Neither give place to the devil.
28] Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
29] Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
30] And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
31] Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
32] And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

Col.3[ 9] Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; [10] And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:[11] Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

1Cor.5[ 7] Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:


Melchizedek - Melchisedec is a priest and means my king is righteous

Shadows of Messiah - The King and High Priest

The "priestly" line of succession in Israel, according to God's Torah, was different from the "kingly" line. The kings were to descend from the tribe of Judah, whereas the priests were to be of the tribe of Levi . The High Priest was selected from the household of Aaron.

Messiah was to be both a King and a High Priest . It would appear impossible for the Messiah to lay claim to both offices, since He would have to be from both the tribes of Judah and Levi the unbelievers say.

However that obstacle is overcome because His, Messiah's priesthood is not of the order of the Levitical priesthood, but of the order of the Melchizedek priesthood.

Another shadow of Messiah's offices, King and a Priest

David was King and TaNaKh states that David's sons were priests, cohens. בְנֵי דָוִד, כֹּהֲנִים הָיוּ

2Sam.8 [18] And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was over both the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and David's sons were chief rulers. ( priests - Cohanim )

The Lord said:

Exod.19[ 1] In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai.
2] For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount.
3] And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;[ 4] Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself. [5] Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:[ 6] And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests , and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

Melchizedek - Melchisedec = My King is Righteous - My righteous King


Pss.2 [6 ] Yet have I set my king מַלְכִּי upon my holy hill of Zion.

righteous צַדִּיק


Gen.14 [ 18] And Melchizedek king of Salem, brought forth bread and wine : and he was the priest of the most high God. [19 ] And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:[20 ] And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes, ( 10th ) - עֲשֵׂר of all.


Psalm 110: [ 1] The LORD said unto my Lord, ( Messiah ) Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.[2] The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.[ 3] Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.[4 ] The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou ( Messiah ) art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek[5] The Lord ( Messiah ) at thy ( the Father's ) right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.[ 6] He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.[7] He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.

Psalm 2 [ 1] Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? [2] The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed ( Messiah ), saying,[ 3] Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.[4 ] He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

Peter said : Acts.4 :[25] Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said , ( Psalm 2 ) Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? [26] The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. [27] For of a truth against thy holy child Yeshua / Jesus, whom thou hast anointed , both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,[28] For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.

back to Psalm 2

[5] Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.[ 6] Yet have I set my king ( Messiah ) upon my holy hill of Zion.[ 7] I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, ( Messiah ) Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee .[8 ] Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. [9] Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron ; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.[ 10] Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.[11 ] Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.[ 12] Kiss the Son, lest he ( Messiah ) be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his ( Messiah ) wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him. ( Messiah - the Son )

] God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Yeshua / Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee .

Heb.5[5] So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him,
( Psalm 2:7 ) Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.


All quotes from Psalm 110:4

Heb.5 [ 6] As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec

[10] Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.

Heb.6: 20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Yeshua /Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.


Hebrews 7 - Melchisedec

[1] For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;
2] To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;
[3] Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.
[4] Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth עֲשֵׂר of the spoils.

Shadows of Messiah - bread and wine

Gen.14 [ 18] And Melchizedek king of Salem, brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God . [19] And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:[20] And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes, ( 10th ) - עֲשֵׂר of all.

back to Hebrews 7

[5] And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:
6] But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes ( 10th ) עֲשֵׂר of Abraham , and blessed him that had the promises.
7] And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.
8] And here men that die receive tithes; but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth.
9] And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, ( 10th עֲשֵׂר ) payed tithes in Abraham.
10] For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.
[11] If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
[12] For the priesthood being changed , there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
[13] For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
14] For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
[15] And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,
[16] Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
[17] For he testifieth,
Psalm 110 - Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
[18] For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.
19] For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.
20] And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest:
21] (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Psalm 110 - Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:
[22] By so much was Yeshua / Jesus made a surety of a better testament.
23] And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:
[24] But this man, ( Messiah ) because He continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood .
[25] Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. ( Isa. 53 )
[26] For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
27] Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. ( Isa. 53 )
[28] For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

Isaiah Chapter 53 - Messiah Yeshua -Salvation

[1] Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
[2] For
he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath 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 esteemed him not.
[4] Surely
he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
[5] 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.
[6] All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to
his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
[7] He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
[9] 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.
[10] Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise
him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt 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 of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
[12] Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

We all are Kings and priests

Exod.19[ 6] And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

1Pet.2[ 5] Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood , to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

[9] But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation , a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Rev.1[ 6] And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Rev.5[ 10] And hast made us unto our God kings and priests : and we shall reign on the earth.

Shalom all
