Why are the Messianic Congregations still praying the Aaronic Benediction over their Congregation members, when we as believers in Yeshua are not in the Aaronic priesthood? Yeshua has given us the Melchi Zedek High Priestly Prayer of John 17, which is so much Greater!

by Richard Aaron Honorof

    Just hours before Yeshua’s death He gave us His last great Prayer of John 17 to help us to come into God’s divine Unity with God and also with each other, so that the world would know that Father God sent His only begotten Son to earth to be the Savior of the world.

John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have Peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world!”

John 17:1 Yeshua spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You! 17:2 As You have given Him Authority over all flesh, that He should give Eternal Life to as many as You have given Him. 17:3 And this is Eternal Life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Yeshua the Messiah whom You have sent. 17:4 I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the Glory which I had with You before the world was. 17:6 I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours; You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your Word. 17:7 Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from You. 17:8 For I have given to them the Words which You have given Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that You sent Me. 17:9 I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours. 17:10 And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them. 17:11 Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be One as We are. 17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. 17:13 But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My Joy fulfilled in themselves. 17:14 I have given them Your Word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17:15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. 17:16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17:17 Sanctify them by Your Truth. Your Word is Truth. 17:18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.  17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the Truth.  17:20 I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word;  17:21 that they all may be One, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be One in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 17:22 And the Glory which You gave Me I have given them that they may be One just as We are One! 17:23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made Perfect in One, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me. 17:24  “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My Glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. 17:25 O Righteous Father, the world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. 17:26 And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them!

 The Aaronic priestly blessing …

Numbers 6:24 “The LORD bless you and keep you; 6:25 The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you. 6:26 The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.” 6:27 “So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.” 

    What did our Lord Yeshua see when He prayed this High Priestly Prayer over His disciples just before He went to the Cross for us? And what does He see now just ahead for all of us, for the Jerusalem and Israeli Messianic Body of believers here today? 

This is truly the time to be praying Yeshua’s High Priestly Melchi Zedek Prayer of John 17 over Yeshua’s whole Messianic and Church Body!

    Very soon now, just following the coming Gog Magog War, the newly formed Israeli Orthodox religious Aaronic priesthood will begin building their temple on Mount Zion hill in Jerusalem.  And then they will also launch very serious persecutions against the Israeli Messianic Body here in the land. This is indeed the time to obey our Lord Yeshua by using this Prayer which He gave us from John 17, for Him to be able to help us to come into this divine Unity. 

For the Israeli Orthodox religious Aaronic priesthood surely know today a lot about most of Messianic Congregations and Churches in Jerusalem and around Israel, like your location, your size, and most likely your leadership. And they have been patiently waiting until they come into real political power to show us whom they believe is really in charge here in Israel. 

    For they definitely do not love their Messianic Jewish brothers and sisters. They have brain-washed themselves into believing that we have become traitors to the faith of our Israeli Jewish forefather’s by turning to Yeshua as the promised Messiah of Israel. However there are over 200 Messianic Scriptures prophesies in the Torah and the Tanakh (Old Testament) which have clearly proven by Yeshua’s birth and life and death and resurrection that Yeshua is the true Messiah and Savior of Israel and the whole world.

On my website under Author’s Articles you can freely download all of these Messianic brochures which lists of 70 or more of these Old Covenant Scriptures about our Messiah Yeshua, which are now in 15 different languages … in English, Hebrew, Russian, Arabic, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Ukrainian, and Ethopian.

The Israeli Orthodox religious Aaronic priests also really do not want to hear about the fact that God had announced in Jeremiah 31:31-34, that He would make a New Covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah. And just why did God do that? Because the Aaronic priests had broken God’s Covenant with God, which God had made through Moses for all of Israel at Mount Sinai.

  When the Israeli Orthodox religious Aaronic priests begin attacking the Messianic Body with their newly gained legal political authority and power soon after the Gog Magog War, and they will, then they will also immediately try to force every Messianic congregation to close down, to leave their premises, and never return. What will that mean for God’s Messianic Body in the land? 

    It will mean that now is the time for you to have all of your small groups and home groups up and fully operating, with everyone knowing their job assignments during the hard times ahead, and not just for survival and fellowship, but also prepared for outreach in evangelism to the Israeli unsaved. Is your Congregation really prepared for what is coming?

    With these Israeli Orthodox religious Aaronic priesthood bringing persecutions against the Messianic and Church Body in the land, everything will change overnight from your current congregational structured meetings to your believers being forced to gather in secret locations. 

This will also be the time when God will begin pouring out His Spirit with signs, and wonders, and amazing miracles in the specific location which God had prophesied in His Word here in Jerusalem, in the ben Hinnom Valley, found in the last verse in the Jeremiah New Covenant chapter, in Jeremiah 31:40. And there many believers will meet together crying out to God in prayer for help during the days of these Orthodox religious persecutions. Perhaps the ben Hinnom Valley is also the place where the Messianic Body will truly unite together and become the John 17 Body which Yeshua had prayed about and envisioned for us in His John 17 Prayer.

On June 16, 1999, while I was in north Jerusalem, high in worship at a worship center, God suddenly gave me two quick visions of this coming Great Revival, showing me the outpouring of His Holy Spirit falling on many people in the ben Hinnom Valley and in the hills surrounding this Valley, at the location just below Mount Zion hotel.

The book which I have written over the last 20 years on this coming great Revival is called, The Coming Great World Revival, The Hinnom Valley Story!

This can be downloaded free from my website:

Isaiah 8:17 And I will wait on the LORD, who hides His face from the house of Jacob; And I will hope in Him. 8:18 Here am I and the children whom the LORD has given me! We are for signs and wonders (miracles) in Israel from the LORD of hosts, who dwells in Mount Zion.

    I believe that the ben Hinnom Valley written about in Jeremiah 31:40 is also the Valley of dry bones which was prophesied by God in Ezekiel 37, where the whole house of Israel will become united together, coming alive in Yeshua, the God of Israel. This Scripture location, which is also the place where Abram had met Melchi Zedek in Genesis 14:18-20, is the place of this coming Great world Revival!

Ezekiel 37:3 And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord GOD, You know.” 37:4 Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the Word of the LORD! 37:5 Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. 37:6  I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the LORD.” ‘ ” 37:9 Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.” ‘ ” 37:10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army. 37:11 Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They indeed say, ‘Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off!” 37:14 I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the LORD, have spoken it and performed it,” says the LORD.

Matthew 5:44 “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 5:45 that you may be sons of your Father in Heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

Matthew 22:36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” 22:37 Yeshua said to him, ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 22:38 This is the first and great commandment. 22:39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’  22:40  On these two commandments hang all the Torah and the prophets.”

Mark 12:29 Yeshua answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is One. 12:30 And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. 12:31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’  There is no other commandment greater than these.”

John 13:34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 13:35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

John 15:12 “This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 15:13  Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 15:14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. 15:15  No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. 15:16  You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. 15:17 These things I command you, that you love one another. 15:18 If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. 15:19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 15:20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My Word, they will keep yours also. 15:21 But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me. 15:22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 15:23 He who hates Me hates My Father also. 15:24 If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father. 15:25 But this happened that the Word might be fulfilled which is written in their torah, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’ (Psalm 69:4)

1 John 3:9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God. 3:10 In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest. Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother. 3:11 For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another …

1 John 4:12 No one has seen God at any time.  If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. 4:13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 4:14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. 4:15 Whoever confesses that Yeshua is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. 4:17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 4:19 We love Him because He first loved us. 4:20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?  4:21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.

     Now is especially the time for Yeshua’s Messianic believers to be regularly praying this whole John 17 Prayer, which our Messiah and Savior and Lord Yeshua gave us just before He died for us. What will God do when Yeshua’s Melchi Zedek (My King of Righteousness) High Priestly Prayer and Blessing of John 17 is being prayed throughout the whole Messianic and Church Body? 

Why are the Messianic Congregations still praying the Aaronic Benediction over their congregation members, when we as believers in Yeshua are not in the Aaronic priesthood? Yeshua has given us His Melchi Zedek High Priestly Prayer of John 17, which is so much Greater!

John 17:3 “And this is Eternal Life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Yeshua the Messiah whom You have sent.”

Yeshua said in John 12:32 “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all peoples to Myself!” 

A Salvation Prayer

Salvation and Eternal Life are free gifts from God! But you must ask God for them just by accepting God’s Son Yeshua as your Lord and Savior. He paid the ultimate price, by dying in your place on the Cross for all of your sins, and by taking all of your sins upon Himself.

Whether you are one of the most religious Orthodox Jewish persons or simply a Jew who has never believed in the God of Israel, if you do not personally know Yeshua, the King and High Priest of Heaven, your Creator, as your own personal Savior then say the following prayer, meaning it with all of your heart. And you will be able to know Him and you will be saved, and also when you die, you can be assured that you will be going to Heaven. And you will experience the Love of God from Yeshua, the God of Love! 

Dear Lord Yeshua, I ask You to be my Lord and Savior, my Messiah! I confess that I am a sinner, and that I have broken Your commandments and Your laws. That I need you as my Savior. I repent for all of my sins. Please forgive me of all my sins, and come and live in my heart. Fill me with Your love, and Your forgiveness, and with Your wonderful Holy Spirit! Amen.

I bless all those who curse me!

Please send this special teaching out to many of your family and friends to read.

     I have written many other books and articles over the years which are all free to download from my website.

My most important book is called, ‘Yeshua, my King of Righteousness, Heaven’s King and Great High Priest, which proves that Yeshua was born from two families of the virgin, king David’s family through Miriam’s father, and the family of Zadokite high priests of Aaron through Miriam’s mother.

Also the full Truth about Yeshua’s Eternal Blood sacrifice is not being taught today. Father God totally honored Yeshua’s Blood Sacrifice because Yeshua as the Son of Man was from the family of king David through Miriam’s father and also from the then unknown family of Miriam’s mother.

For Yeshua was born the fulfillment of the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron through Miriam’s mother!

However Yeshua was never an Aaronic priest simply because He had no biological earthly father; but Yeshua is always from the two families of His virgin mother Miriam.
