Today, May 25th, 2023, Shavuot, still only half of Yeshua’s full earthly identity is being taught in the Messianic and the world Church Body.
What do I mean by that? The Messianic and the world Church Body only teaches about the virgin Miriam’s father’s side of Miriam’s family.
But virgin Miriam had a father and a mother. We know that Miriam’s father was from king David’s family. There are many biblical Scripture proofs of this. But Miriam also had a mother! And Miriam’s mother had to be from one of the families of the 12 tribes of Israel, which is not being taught today! What family was the virgin Miriam’s mother from? That’s my whole purpose for writing this short paper.
Did God tell us the answer in His Word? Yes! God actually had told us in many places in the Scriptures which family that Miriam’s mother was from. So why is this not being taught today? And also is this really important? Yes, everything about God’s only begotten Son Yeshua is very important, but especially this Truth about which family from Miriam’s mother’s family that our Lord Yeshua came from!
Yeshua and the Holy Spirit first began showing me and teaching me this great mystery about Yeshua’s secret identity in 1993, over 30 years ago. Also the Holy Spirit had me first publicly teach this great mystery about Yeshua at a Christine Darg conference here in Jerusalem in 2011. Since then I have taught this mystery many times to many different Messianic Congregations and other groups.
But this great mystery about Yeshua born from the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron is still basically untaught and unknown to most of the Messianic and Church believers.
I have written half a dozen books and many more articles on this subject which are all on my website, under Author’s Books and Author’s Articles, and all free for anyone to download and read and study, and send out to others.
To best see and understand this mystery, let’s begin by going back before Creation began …
Before Creation began God’s Son, the Eternal King and High Priest of Heaven knew that He would one day come to earth through the virgin, and that He would be the Savior of the world, the Lamb of God who wound be slain from before the foundation of the world for the sins of humanity. (Revelation 13:8)
He knew that He would need a physical Body (Hebrews 10:5, from Psalm 40:6 from Septuagint), originally coming from the Seed from Eve. (Genesis 3:15) And also that Righteous Seed from Eve would then travel for over 2000 years, beginning from the time of Eve to finally coming into a young Jewish baby named Miriam from Nazareth, which had also been prophesied in Isaiah 7:13, 14.
As the Eternal King of Heaven (Isaiah 44:6; Psalm 24:10; Malachi 1:14; etc…), Yeshua, coming through Miriam’s father would have perfectly fulfilled the family of king’s from king David at His birth.
And as the Eternal High Priest of Heaven, Melchi Zedek (My King of Righteousness) from Psalm 110:1, 4, [Father God, והוה , speaking to His Son לאדני, saying, “You are a Priest forever by My Word, Melchi Zedek!”], Yeshua, coming from Miriam’s mother’s family would have also perfectly fulfilled the family line of the Zadok (righteous) high priest family of Aaron at His birth.
The heavenly Man who appeared to Abram in Genesis 14:18-20 with three divine titles, Melchi Zedek, Priest of God Most High, and King of Salem had blessed Abram and Abram’s Seed, and as God preincarnate, had also directed the path of Abram’s Seed, to travel through the family line of kings from king David to Miriam’s father, and also the family line of the Aaronic high priests from Elisheva and Aaron’s son Eleazar to Zadok to Yehoshua to finally into Miriam’s mother.
The amazing Truth about Yeshua also born from the Zadokite high priest family line of Aaron is not being taught today, and yet it is found in over 22 places in Scripture, which the Holy Spirit has shown me from both the Old and New Covenant Scriptures.
However it is very important that I state from the very beginning that Yeshua was never an Aaronic priest simply because He had no biological earthly father; for His Father is the Almighty God. But also that Yeshua is always from the two families of His virgin mother Miriam, from both her father’s family and also her mother’s family.
So let’s begin …
Why did God open the whole New Covenant chronologically with the Aaronic Priesthood?
This appears in the very first words and in the very first scene in the book of Luke. What does the Aaronic priesthood have to do with our Lord Yeshua? Everything, as you will soon learn!
When the angel Gabriel told Miriam in Luke 1 about her yet unconceived and unborn Son, angel Gabriel began by telling Miriam about her Child’s inheritance, that her Child would be the Son of the Highest, and that He would reign on the throne of His father David over the house of Israel forever, and also that He would be the Son of God. (Read Luke 1:32-35)
The angel Gabriel then continued and told Miriam about her relative (in Hebrew ‘karov,’ or close relative) Elisheva from Aaron, who was then six months pregnant. (Luke 1:36)
Yes, the angel Gabriel told Miriam about her Child Yeshua’s inheritance from both of Miriam’s two parents families, from king David’s family and also from one of the Aaronic priest families.
But what specific family of Aaron were both Elisheva and her husband priest Zechariah, and also Miriam from? God told us this in Luke 1:5, 6, that priest Zechariah and his wife Elisheva were both from the family of Aaron that was righteous before God walking in all the covenants and ordinances of God blameless.
That was God’s way of both telling us the answer and also hiding this mystery from mankind for the last 2000 years.
Listen to the Aaronic priest Zechariah’s own words in Luke 1:75, also revealing this same Truth about his own Aaronic priest family mystery at the circumcision of his eight day old baby son Yochanan.
Luke 1:71-75 “That we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us, to perform the mercy promised to our fathers and to remember His Holy Covenant, the oath which He swore to our father Abraham, to grant us that we, being delivered from the hands of our enemies, might serve Him without fear in holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life.”
Notice that again we see these same words, righteous before God, the words that were used by God in Luke 1:6, confirming this truth about Zechariah and Elisheva being from the Zadokite high priest family.
But how can you know for sure that this is what those words really meant? To really see this answer we need to first go back and look into Jewish history at what had proceeded this New Covenant scene, at what had happened prior to the Aaronic priesthood in order to clearly and fully understand this. Then these statements in Luke 1:6 and in Luke 1:75, and also what followed in the next scenes in Luke 1, both to priest Zechariah in the Jerusalem Temple, and then later to Miriam in Nazareth will not only make absolutely perfect sense, but they will also reveal to us why both Elisheva from Aaron and her husband Zechariah, and also Miriam had to all be from this Zadokite high priest family of Aaron.
In Jeremiah 31:31-34, God had announced to all of Israel that He would be making a New Covenant with both the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. And He had also told us why. Because Israel had broken their Covenant with God made at Mount Sinai. That meant that the Aaronic priesthood had broken God’s Mosaic Covenant. So God would be making a New Covenant, and also a new priesthood would then be needed …
God next announced through His prophet Ezekiel about a coming change in the Aaronic priesthood. In Ezekiel 40 – 48, God made some major changes to the whole Aaronic priesthood structure. For God told all the Aaronic priest families to leave His presence forever, except for only one high priest family from Aaron, the family of the sons of high priest Zadok. Only the sons from the family of high priest Zadok would be allowed to come into God’s Presence and also be allowed to be around the Temple holy items in the Holy Place, and also allowed to do any animal blood sacrifices before God, which God would recognize and honor, and also they only would be the Aaronic high priest who would come each year into the Holy of Holies.
This Truth in the Scriptures about what had happened to all the other Aaronic priest families, versus what happened to only the sons of Zadok, is rarely taught today, and yet is really so important to thoroughly understand, for it gives us a much more greater understanding about this Great Mystery concerning our Messiah and Savior and Lord Yeshua, who was born from this Zadokite high priest family. God has kept this mystery totally hidden from the believers in Yeshua and from the whole world for 2000 years. The Holy Spirit is only now revealing this Truth from His Word for this last generation, just before Yeshua returns.
These Truths about the sons of Zadok are found in six different places in the Scriptures in the book of Ezekiel, from chapter 40 – 48. See Ezekiel 40:26; Ezekiel 42:13; Ezekiel 43:18, 19; Ezekiel 44:15, 16; Ezekiel 45:4; and Ezekiel 48:10, 11;
Let’s read the most important one …
Ezekiel 44:10, “And the Levites who went far from Me, when Israel went astray, who strayed away from Me after their idols, they shall bear their iniquity. 44:11 Yet they shall be ministers in My Sanctuary, as gatekeepers of the house and ministers of the house; they shall slay the burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before them to minister to them. 44:12 Because they ministered to them before their idols and caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity, therefore I have raised My hand in an oath against them,” says the Lord GOD, “that they shall bear their iniquity. 44:13 And they shall not come near Me to minister to Me as a priest, nor come near any of My holy things, nor into the Most Holy Place (the High Priest position); but they shall bear their shame and their abominations which they have committed. 14:14 Nevertheless I will make them keep charge of the Temple, for all its work, and for all that has to be done in it.”
Ezekiel 44:15, “But the priests, the Levites, the sons of Zadok, who kept charge of My Sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from Me, they shall come near Me to minister to Me; and they shall stand before Me to offer to Me the fat and the blood,” says the Lord GOD. 44:16 “They shall enter My Sanctuary, and they shall come near My table to minister to Me, and they shall keep My charge.”
Also it is very important to understand that the Aaronic high priests were only from the Zadokite high priest family since the time of king Solomon, around 1000 B.C., to around 165 B. C. The sons of the Zadokite high priest family were the only Aaronic priests who could be the high priests, both when Israel was in exile and also when Israel came back to the land, serving God in the Jerusalem Temple.
Having just read this major change that God made in the Aaronic priesthood, which happened in Jewish history which had preceded the New Covenant, there is one more place in Jewish history that also really must be shared …
Also found in Jewish history but rarely taught is that around 165 B.C., during the days of the Maccabees, after the Maccabees had defeated the Seleucid ruler Antiochus IV, they had also kicked out the Zadokite high priest and all of the rest of the Zadokite high priest family from the Jerusalem Temple. Then the Maccabees took over the Jerusalem Temple as one of the other Aaronic priest families, in total violation of the Word of God given only to the Zadokite high priest family. Ezekiel 43:18, 19 and Ezekiel 44:15, 16. Also Zechariah 3:1-9.
[Reference: Jewish Virtual Library – the Zadokites]
Then the Zadokite high priest family had gone underground, perhaps out to the Kumran area by the Dead Sea, as many scholars have believed.
And then all the Jerusalem Temple priesthood animal sacrifices were corrupted, from 165 B. C., from the days that the Maccabees took over the Jerusalem Temple as an Aaronic priest family until when the Temple was finally destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D., because of the violation of the Word of God given only to the Zadokite high priest family regarding ministering before God and doing animal sacrifices to God in the Temple. Read Ezekiel 43:18, 19 and Ezekiel 44:11-14, 15-16, and also Zechariah 3:1-9.
Now let’s go back to priest Zechariah and Elisheva from Aaron, and Miriam … with a much greater understanding of the beginning of the New Covenant, and what God had said in Luke 1:5, 6, and also in Luke 1:75, and also what God did in the very first scene of the whole New Covenant Scriptures, by sending His angel Gabriel to speak to the Aaronic priest Zechariah. Luke 1:8-20,
The angel Gabriel was sent by God to priest Zechariah as he was ministering to God in the Jerusalem Temple, speaking to him these words, in Luke 1:19, “I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and bring you these glad tidings.”
No Aaronic priest was ever allowed again to come into the presence of God except for only the sons of Zadok. What angel Gabriel said meant that priest Zechariah was absolutely a son from the Zadokite high priest family, the only Aaronic priest family that was allowed to come before God into His presence. Ezekiel 44:15, 16; Ezekiel 43:18, 19.
But also look at where Zechariah was standing and ministering when the angel Gabriel spoke to him. He was at the Altar of Incense. What does that mean?
The angel Gabriel was sent by God to speak to this Aaronic priest Zechariah while he was ministering to God at the Aaronic high priest position of the Altar of Incense. (Luke 1:8-11)
When the angel Gabriel was sent by God to meet Zechariah, specifically while he was ministering before God at the Altar of Incense, this showed that this Aaronic priest Zechariah had to be, after 165 years of Aaronic Temple priesthood corruption, God’s true mystery Zadokite high priest from Aaron!
How do we know this? For a few reasons …
Exodus 30:7-8, tells us that the Altar of Incense in the Holy Place in the Jerusalem Temple was the position given by God to high priest Aaron, (and also to Aaron’s future generations of sons) who would serve God as God’s Aaronic high priest at the position of the Altar of Incense.
Exodus 30:1“You shall make an altar to burn incense on; 30:7 Aaron shall burn on it sweet incense every morning; when he tends the lamps, he shall burn incense on it. 30:8 And when Aaron lights the lamps at twilight, he shall burn incense on it, a perpetual incense before the LORD throughout your generations.”
The Altar of Incense was the position designated by God for the true Aaronic high priest.
So when the angel Gabriel was sent to speak with this Aaronic priest Zechariah, it meant that after 165 years priest Zechariah had to also be the real mystery Zadokite high priest of Israel, the one who was in the highest order of true spiritual authority from God in all of Israel.
Therefore then priest Zechariah’s future yet unconceived and unborn son Yochanan would also be the next mystery Zadokite high priest of Israel. But why did God also tell Zechariah’s that his future son had to be named Yochanan?
I’m still working on that mystery. But to see what God has shared with me so far, you will need to read it in my new book on my website, ‘The Greatest Mystery of all Bible Mysteries …’ (22 proofs Yeshua is also from Zadok of Aaron)
Yes, Zechariah’s high priest family had also included young Miriam, their ‘karov,’ or close relative, who when she was told she would be giving birth to the Son of God, she had then spent the next three months with them, her closest blood kin family.
Zechariah had mentioned that Miriam was also from the family of king David through her father’s family, on the day he spoke at his son’s circumcision, in Luke 1:69.
Something that is also very important to understand regarding this great mystery about Yeshua is that 2000 years ago this mystery about Yeshua also being born from the Zadokite high priest family could never have been revealed. Why? Because if this mystery had been known then, that the promised Messiah would also be coming from the family of the Aaronic priests, specifically from the Zadokite high priest family, then king Herod, who hearing that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem, had murdered all the baby boys from two years old and under. If he had also known this information, he most likely would have also murdered all the Aaronic priest’s baby boys two years old and younger in Israel.
There might never have been an Aaronic priest named Zechariah and his wife Elisheva, and definitely no miracle baby son born to them named Yochanan. And also no baby Son Yeshua, ‘Emmanu El,’ born from the virgin Miriam in Bethlehem.
In any case this mystery about Yeshua coming from the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron was kept as Zechariah’s and Elisheva’s, and also as Miriam’s and Yeshua’s family secret 2000 years ago.
King Herod had appointed his own two phony Aaronic high priests, Annas and Caiaphas, who were definitely not from the Zadokite high priest family.
Luke 3:2 while Annas and Caiaphas were high priests, the Word of God came to Yochanan (John) the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.
The time was now about thirty years later after Yochanan’s birth, and also around the season of the Israeli Fall Feasts when Yeshua came to the prophet Yochanan out at the Jordan River, in order to begin His earthly ministry through His baptism (mikveh), to be witnessed by his cousin, the mystery Zadokite high priest of Israel, the person in the highest order of true spiritual authority from God in all of Israel.
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 But Yeshua answered and said to him, “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness!” Then he allowed Him. 3:16 When He had been baptized, Yeshua came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. 3:17 And suddenly a voice came from Heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased!”
Yochanan, who had been ministering out there in the hot sun at the Jordan River for about six months had just asked Yeshua to baptize him.
Yochanan, the mystery true Zadokite (righteous) high priest of Israel had asked his cousin Yeshua, the King and High Priest of Heaven, the head of the Melchi Zedek (My King of Righteousness) Priesthood of Heaven to baptize him.
But after Yeshua’s response Yochanan had immediatelly submitted to his cousin Yeshua’s request. And then he watched as the Holy Spirit ascending upon Yeshua. And God spoke from Heaven, saying, “This is My Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased!”
I first began receiving revelations of this Mystery about Yeshua from God in early 1993. I now want to present to you something else that God has also put into my heart many years ago of what may also really have happened to the whole Aaronic priesthood that day out there at the Jordan River some 2000 years ago.
God had said in eight different places in the Old Testament Scriptures that the Aaronic priesthood would someday become forever.
Exodus 29:9; Exodus 40:13 -15; Numbers 10:8; Numbers 25:11-13; Deuteronomy 18:1, 2, 5; 1st Chronicles 23:13; Jeremiah 33:18, 20-22; also in Malachi 2:4
Was the Aaronic priesthood brought into the Melchi Zedek Priesthood and into Yeshua when Yochanan, the mystery Zadokite high priest of Israel submitted to Yeshua, Melchi Zedek, the great High Priest of Heaven out there at that day at the Jordan River? For the Word of God tells us that in Yeshua all things consist … Colossians 1:16, 17.
The answer to this and many other biblical mysteries are found in much greater depth in my newest book on my website, called …
‘The Greatest Mystery of all Bible Mysteries is King Priest Yeshua’s secret identity, coming from the two families of virgin Miriam, king David’s family through Miriam’s father, and the Zadokite high priest family through Miriam’s mother!’
This new 64 page book now contains 22 Scripture proofs on this subject that Yeshua was also born from the Zadokite high priest family. It is free to read and download from my website.
The greatest keys in the Old Testament which also prove that Yeshua was born from this Zadokite high priest family are found in the five places where word the Branch, ‘Tzemach’ in Hebrew, are found in the Scriptures. Two of those five places show that the Branch (Tzemach) would be coming to earth through king David’s family. (Jeremiah 23:5, 6; and Jeremiah 33:17) And three of those five places show that the Branch (Tzemach) would also be coming to earth through the family of the Zadokite high priests. (Jeremiah 33:18; Zechariah 3:1-9; and Zechariah 6:11, 12)
My absolutely favorite one is the mystery of the Man in Jeremiah 33:18 … actually the whole mystery passage from Jeremiah 33:14 to 33:26.
Jeremiah 33:14 ‘Behold, the days are coming,’ says the LORD, ‘that I will perform that good thing which I have promised to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah. 33:15 ‘In those days and at that time I will cause to grow up to David a Branch (Tzemach) of Righteousness. He shall execute Judgment and righteousness in the earth. 33:16 In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell safely. And this is the name by which He will be called in her, The LORD our Righteousness!’ 33:17 “For thus says the LORD, ‘David shall never lack a Man to sit on the throne of the House of Israel; 33:18 nor shall the priests, the Levites, lack a Man before Me to offer burnt offerings, to kindle grain offerings, and to sacrifice [‘zebach’, Strong’s # 2077, a slaughter, an animal blood sacrifice (of the Lamb of God)] continually (the Hebrew word for continually is ‘kol ha yamin’, or ‘for all days’.).” 33:19 And the Word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying, 33:20 “Thus says the LORD, ‘If you can break My covenant with the day and My covenant with the night, so that there will not be day and night in their season, 33:21 then My covenant may also be broken with David My servant, so that he shall not have a son to reign on his throne, and with the Levites, the priests, My ministers. 33:22 As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, nor the sand of the sea measured, so will I multiply the descendants of David My servant and the Levites who minister to Me.’ ” 33:23 Moreover the Word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying, 33:24 “Have you not considered what these people have spoken, saying, ‘The two families which the LORD has chosen, He has also cast them off’? Thus they have despised My people, as if they should no more be a nation before them. 33:25 “Thus says the LORD: ‘If My covenant is not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth, 33:26 then I will cast away the descendants of Jacob and David My servant, so that I will not take any of his descendants to be rulers over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. For I will cause their captives to return, and will have mercy on them.’ ”
This whole Jeremiah 33:14-26 passage is primarily a future prophesy about the coming Messiah, referring to Yeshua’s two divine titles, as a Branch of Righteousness and the LORD our Righteousness. 1) And very importantly about the two families of the virgin, and 2) the Man who would be coming to earth from king David’s family and also the Man from high priest Aaron’s family.
In Jeremiah 33:18, it seems at first that this sentence is talking about the Aaronic priests in general. But it is not, but only about a Man who is from the family of Aaron and is not an Aaronic priest. The qualifying words, ‘a Man’ before Me, relate to one specific Man from one Aaronic priest family who is before God, the family of the sons of Zadok; the only family of Aaron which was allowed to come before God and to offer a blood sacrifice. The Man is Yeshua, seen here as Melchi Zedek, the High Priest of Heaven, who also from this Zadokite high priest family does the zebach (Strong # 2077, slaughter, animal blood sacrifice) the Blood Sacrifice done of the Lamb of God, and ‘kol ha yamim,’ ‘for all days!’ This is the Eternal Blood Sacrifice! This Man is ‘before Me,’ (Hebrew is lifanay), which means that He stands before God!
All the other Aaronic priest families were commanded by God to leave forever, to never again come into God’s presence in the Temple, and to never do an animal blood sacrifice before God again.
We know in Jeremiah 33:17, the Man from David who reigns as King is Yeshua. So then the Man mentioned in verse 18 is also only about one specific Son from Zadok, Yeshua, who is always before God, (אִישׁ מִלְּפָנָי), and the One who does the Sacrifice ‘for all days’ (זֶּבַח כָּל-הַיָּמִים), the Eternal Blood Sacrifice!
This Man can only be Yeshua, seen here coming from the Zadokite high priest family, Miriam’s mother’s family.
If you could superimpose Yeshua over these two Jeremiah 33:17 and 18 verses, you can see that Yeshua only perfectly fits these verses. If Yeshua is the Man being talked about in verse 17, then Yeshua must also be the Man of verse 18, who was prophesied to be also coming from the Zadok high priest family. He, as the High Priest of Heaven, Melchi Zedek, coming from the two families of the virgin, does this Eternal Blood Sacrifice! Psalm 110:1, 4 and Ezekiel 44:15, 16.
The qualifying words before Me, shows that this Man is from this Zadokite high priest family, which is Yeshua’s own blood kin family through Miriam and her mother.
Jeremiah 33:24, is about the two families which God had chosen, David’s family and Aaron’s family. Chosen for what? Chosen by Father God for God’s Son Yeshua to come to earth through the virgin!
There is another major key which has been overlooked … In 70 A.D., at the destruction of the Jerusalem’s 2nd Temple, all the genealogy records of the Aaronic priests were destroyed when the Jerusalem Temple was destroyed. Therefore no records exist today of who really is still from the Zadokite’s high priest family.
Therefore this whole Jeremiah 33:14-26 Scripture passage can only be about Yeshua, and cannot be the Aaronic priests, for only Yeshua’s Blood Sacrifice perfectly fits Jeremiah 33:18.
Yeshua has to be the Man being referred to in verse 33:18, the One who does the Eternal Blood Sacrifice “for all days!” That means only Yeshua is the fulfillment of this prophetic Messianic passage from Jeremiah 33:14 to 33:26.
Without Yeshua none of the sons of the Zadokite high priests of Aaron nor any of the other Aaronic priests have Eternal Salvation.
Yeshua is the Eternal Salvation for all the Aaronic priests, and also for the people of Israel, and also for all peoples of the earth.
This Eternal Blood Sacrifice prophesied in Jeremiah 33:18 is the actual prophetic picture prophesied in Scripture of the Eternal Blood Sacrifice done by Yeshua, the Son of God, the Priest of God Most High, Melchi Zedek, (My King of Righteousness), the Man who is always standing before God in Heaven.
He, as a Son born from the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron, as the Son of Man, would offer up Himself with His own Blood offering, to ratify God’s New and Eternal Covenant of Jeremiah 31:31-34 with the House of Israel and the House of Judah, and also for all the peoples of the earth!
But to me the Greatest Proof that Yeshua is also from the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron happened after Yeshua was crucified and finally went up into Heaven, to sit down with at the right hand of His Father in Heaven.
When Yeshua died for us and for all of our sins, He first took His Blood to Heaven, where He placed it on the Mercy Seat in Heaven. This then ratified the New and Eternal Covenant of God with all of mankind who would be saved. Hebrews 9:12
Only then could the Holy Spirit be sent to earth, as Yeshua had promised to His disciples, to come and live inside every believer in their Spirit, so they would no longer be orphans, but become ‘born again’ believers, as New Creations of God, part of ‘the One New Man’ on earth.
Hebrews 9:12-14, Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own Blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained Eternal Redemption. 9:13 For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, 9:14 how much more shall the Blood of Messiah, who through the Eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Yeshua sat down at the right hand of His Father in Heaven. Only then could His Father send the Holy Spirit to be poured out on those first 120 disciples. Then they all became ‘born again’ believers by God’s Holy Spirit, in that Upper Room in Jerusalem, as God’s first New Creations in the One New Man in Yeshua, on that Feast day of Shavuot. For the outpouring of the Holy Spirit of God on that Feast day of Shavuot launched the New Covenant on earth.
Daniel 7:13 “I was watching in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of Heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. 7:14 Then to Him (Yeshua) was given Dominion and Glory and a Kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His Dominion is an Everlasting Dominion, which shall not pass away. And His Kingdom one which shall not be destroyed.”
Yeshua had been born on earth as both the Son of God through His Heavenly Father, and also as the Son of Man through His virgin mother Miriam. As the Son of Man He was born through Miriam’s two families, king David’s family through Miriam’s father and also the family of the Zadokite high priests through Miriam’s mother. As the Son of God He was both Heaven’s Eternal King and also Heaven’s Eternal High Priest.
But only as the Son of Man would Yeshua be able to redeem both mankind and also the earth (see Genesis 3:17 and Numbers 35:33) back to God, because the earth had been given to mankind by God. And only a perfect Man, who would also live a perfect life, totally surrendered 100 % to God would ever be able to redeem both mankind and also the earth for God. That is why Yeshua’s favorite title and also His greatest accomplishment was not in being the Son of God. But it was always in being the Son of Man, which would forever eternally be His Title, along with His other favorite title of the Lamb of God!
Yeshua, as the Son of Man coming from the two families of His mother Miriam, had come into Heaven and into the presence of His own Father, the Almighty God.
God had specifically told us in Ezekiel 44:15, that only priests who are sons from the Zadokite high priest family could come into the presence of God. So here we see Yeshua, Himself, coming into the presence of God, His own Father in Heaven. Therefore this is again to me perhaps the greatest proof that Yeshua has to also be a son from the Zadokite high priest family.
Ezekiel 44:15, “But the priests, the Levites, the sons of Zadok, who kept charge of My Sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from Me, they shall come near Me to minister to Me; and they shall stand before Me to offer to Me the fat and the blood,” says the Lord GOD. 44:16 “They shall enter My Sanctuary, they shall come near My table to minister to Me …
Revelation 5:2 Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?” 5:3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it. 5:4 So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it. 5:5 But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.” 5:6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb (coming from the high priest family of Zadok of Aaron) as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. 5:7 Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne. 5:9 And they sang a new song, saying: “You are Worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals. For You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your Blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, 5:10 And have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth.” 5:11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, 5:12 saying with a loud voice: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!” 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: “Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!”
Proving that Yeshua came from
the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron!

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. For Father God totally honored Yeshua’s Blood Sacrifice because Yeshua as the Son of Man from the two families of His virgin mother Miriam was born from the family of king David through Miriam’s father and also born from the (then unknown) family of virgin Miriam’s mother.
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.
