Today, we sadly use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s.

Today’s date is Oct.15, 2022


October -- the eighth month – now the 10th month

Middle English octobre
Latin October
octo "eight" + -ber (adj. suffix)
october mensis "eighth month"

October has always had 31 days.


The God of Israel has His own Calendar: we are now in the 7th month called:

הָאֵתָנִים - ha Ethanim – 18th  day

1Kings 8:2

Today’s Topic:

Let’s talk a litter about:


Melchizedek - Melchisedec 


Melchizedek - Melchisedec was a priest,

 My king is righteous

מַלְכִּי־צֶדֶק Malkiy-Tsedeq {mal-kee-tseh'-dek}

Meaning:  Melchizedek = "my king is Sedek, righteous " 1) king of Salem and priest of the Most High God to whom Abram paid tithe after the battle he fought to free Lot;

'the order of Melchizedek' the order of the priesthood to which Messiah belongs


Shadow of Messiah's offices

as Son,

the Word

a King

a Priest


Just a few verses:

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.

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


Sometimes we need to see the spiritual side of things in scripture.

Rom.8 [6] For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.


[13] Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

[14] But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.


Let’s consider:

Bread and wine: symbolic of the body and blood of Messiah - spiritual


[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 had delivered your enemies into your hand. And he gave him tithes, (10th) of all.


English spellings in scripture:

Melchizedek - Melchisedec 

My King is Righteous מַלְכִּי-צֶדֶק


Examples of my king:  


[6Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
[7] I will declare the decree: 
Yehovah hath said unto me (Messiah), You are my Son; this day have I begotten thee.



[2] Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: unto thee will I pray.



[4] You are my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.



[24] They have seen your goings, O God; even the goings of my God, my King, in the sanctuary.



[12] For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.



[3] Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even your altars, O Yehovah of hosts, my King, and my God.



[15] Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;


[14] These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.


[16] And he, Messiah had on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.


Psalm 110: God the Father’s oath

[1Yehovah said unto my Lord(Messiah) Sit you at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.

[2Yehovah shall send the rod of your strength out of Zion: rule you in the midst of your enemies.

[3] Thy people shall be willing in the day of your power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: you have the dew of your youth.

[4Yehovah had sworn, and will not repent, You (Messiah) are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek

[5] The Lord (Messiah) at your (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.



[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 
Yehovah, 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.
[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: 
Yehovah had said unto me(Messiah) You are my Son; this day have I begotten You

[8] Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.
[9] You 
shall break them with a rod of iron; you shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
[10] Be wise now therefore, O you 
kings: be instructed, you judges of the earth.
[11] Serve 
Yehovah with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
[12Kiss the Son, lest he (Messiah) 
be angry, and you perish from the way, when his (Messiah) wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him. (Messiah)


Peter quotes Psalm 2 


[24] And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, you are God, which had made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:

[25] Who by the mouth of your servant David Pss.2 had said, 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 Yehovah, and against his Messiah. 

[27] For of a truth against your holy child Yeshua, whom you had anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, was gathered together,[28] For to do whatsoever your hand and your counsel determined before to be done.


A few more vesese:


[27] For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every Sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him.
[28] And though they found no cause of death in him, yet desired they Pilate that he should be slain.
[29] And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a sepulcher.
[30] But God raised him from the dead:
[31] And he was seen many days of them which came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses unto the people.
[32] And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers,

[33] God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Yeshua again; as it is also written in the second psalm above, Thou are my Son, this day have I begotten thee. Psalm 2:7



[1] For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins:
[2] Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.
[3] And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.
[4] And no man takes this honor unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron.

[5] So also Messiah glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, You are my Son, today have I begotten thee.

[6] As he said also in another place, You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

[7] Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him, the Father that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;
[8] Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
[9] And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

[10] Called of God a high priest after the order of MelchisedecPsalm 110:4



[20] Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Yeshua, made an high priest for ever after the order of MelchisedecPsalm 110:4



[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; 
abides a priest continually.

[4] Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
[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 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 
receives them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives.
[9] And as I may so say, Levi also, who 
receives tithes, pays 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 
pertains to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
[14] For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of 
Judah; of which tribe Moses spoke nothing concerning priesthood.
[15] And it is yet far more evident:

for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there arises 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 testifies, You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. Psalm 110:4

[18For 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, Yehovah sware and will not repent, Thou are a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:) Psalm 110:4

By so much was Yeshua 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, because he 
continues ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
[25] Wherefore he is able also to save them to the 
uttermost that comes unto God by him, seeing he ever lives to make intercession for them.
[26] For such an high priest became (
He for) us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
[27] Who 
needs 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.
[28] For the law 
makes men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, makes the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

John 1

[1] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
[2] The same was in the beginning with God.
[3] All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.
[4] In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
[5] And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

[6] There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
[7] The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
[8] He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
[9] That was the true Light, which lightens every man that cometh into the world.
[10] He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
[11] He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
[12] But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
[13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
[14] And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
