There is a New World Order coming to the earth. It isn’t the one that people talk about, the one where humans, Nephilim and AIs rule. No, this Order is the one that existed before the earth was created and when Adam was created. It is the same world order that was created at the Exodus with a nation called Israel. This world order is the reason Yeshua died to save Israel and He will be the King in the end just as He was in the beginning.
Let’s start by answering the question “what is Israel”? The answer will give a general definition of what the Order of Melchizedek is which is also what Israel is, as we shall see. Everything that the Order of Melchizedek is also defines what Israel is.
Israel is a 3-strand cord of King, people and land. This was the framework beginning in Genesis, too. Additionally, the people are governed by Israel’s particular laws and the land has a capital from which the King reigns. It was this way in Genesis, too. Moses was given the task of writing what the Israelites needed to know about the King and His laws that govern Israel. We will see that YHVH’s law was taught to man in the beginning. The law would later be attributed to Moses, i.e. it would be called the “law of Moses” only because it was Moses who wrote it down. The law of YHVH was not given first to Israel at the Exodus, but to Adam in Genesis!
Exodus 24:12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.
All that Moses wrote is “law” even though some of it appears as history. The Book of Bresheit, which is Genesis in English, is history but it is required study for wanna-be Israelites. It tells Israelites the account of how YHVH tried to establish His dominion over humanity on the earth starting with one man named Adam, and the apparent failure of that attempt, followed by a second attempt with an entire population of people called Israelites. One more attempt will be made to rule over Israel that will be made by YHVH and this time He will succeed.
The Book of Genesis is the legal account of Israel’s history. It is not intended by YHVH to be a detailed scientific essay. It is told from YHVH’s point of view, given to Moses to explain to the Israelites who He is and who they are because they did not know Him. YHVH’s great miracles in Egypt and at the Red Sea were not enough to convince the rebellious Israelites about who He is. Establishing the nation of Israel at Mount Sinai where He was the one fulfilling the promises made to their forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob still did not convince Israel about who YHVH is.
The first word given to the Israelites at the establishment of the nation at Mount Sinai were “I am YHVH thy Elohim, which have brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:2-3).
This is the first commandment not a mere statement of fact. If we don’t know who YHVH Elohim is, the laws that govern His nation won’t matter to us. The fact is that the first Israelites were Egyptians at heart who believed Pharaoh was the supreme god governing a pantheon of gods. They did not know YHVH Elohim and this is why Moses wrote the legal history of Israel starting with the entirety of creation to straighten out their crooked thinking that any other god was involved in creation. This history was part of their immigration indoctrination. Immigrants worldwide have to take history courses before taking the oath of loyalty to their new country no matter what country they’re migrating to. We have to understand our new identity so we will be emotionally and intellectually vested in our new nation.
Genesis is the history of why a nation called Israel had to be chosen from among all the other nations of the earth in the first place (hint: it’s because the first Melchizedek King-Priest failed in his office); why certain men like Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were chosen as progenitors of the family that would become Israel; the struggles they had staying in the Promised Land and how they got to Egypt from where they needed rescue. And there is some information about the family’s dysfunctions that we need to know about because these are still with us thousands of years later.
Genesis is also prophecy. Prophecy is history that creates repeating patterns. The patterns that began in Genesis will become the Bible’s account of Israel. After this current 7,000 year cycle is complete, Israel will find itself in the ideal existence of the Garden of Eden. Genesis starts with the Garden (Genesis 2:8) and Revelation ends with the Garden (Revelation 22:2). We are returning to the conditions our YHVH Elohim created for us against which our ancestors rebelled.
We, Israel, need to know who YHVH Elohim is and we need a definition of what Israel is. That is what this series of teachings is for.
Let’s begin with the plural term ‘Elohim’. This is the “Creator function”. There are two entities throughout scripture who are referred to as a single unit, “echad” (Strong’s H259). The one word for the two acting as one is “Elohim”.
The word “echad” means “united”. Some say it means simply “one” but the Hebrew number 1 is “alef”. The dictionary meaning of “united” is two or more people “joined together politically for a common purpose or by common feelings”. “Elohim” is a “united” plurality of a Father and a Son.
The name “YHVH” refers to the plurality of a Sovereign (Suzerain) King and His Vassal King. In this case, the Father is the Sovereign and the Son is the Vassal. Both are Elohim acting as a unity. We see this configuration throughout the scriptures. “YHVH Elohim” literally means “King and God” or “Ruler and Creator”. The Kingship and Rulership cannot be separated from the ‘God’ Creator role.
What is Israel? Israel is a nation of people who “loves YHVH our Elohim with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our might” (Deuteronomy 6:5). Israel knows their King came to earth to die to save and restore Israel, and if you lived before He came, you knew He was coming to the earth to die, to save and restore Israel, and we have given ourselves to our King for His purposes. We are His loyal servants who hope to be elevated to serve with Him as Melchizedeks – King-Priests – in the future (2 Timothy 2:12, Revelation 5:10, 1 Corinthians 6:1-3).
What is our King’s first name? Yeshua. Yeshua YHVH Elohim is our King and Creator from the beginning (John 1:1-14).
Israel and all of humanity are still in the process of “becoming”. Our stories are not finished yet. The earth is still in the second cycle of 7 1,000-year periods. The creation of humans to populate the capital of the universe is a unique and specific process, not an event as in the creation of the objects in the sky and the various flora and fauna written about in Genesis chapter 1. This process will end with every human who ever lived being judged according to the law(s) of YHVH. Some will qualify as suitable vessels (Jeremiah 18, Romans 9:20-22) who will be rewarded with eternal life and some will not. Those who do not qualify for eternal life will be destroyed. It will only be after this 7,000 year process is over that humans will be finished, completed and we will be what we were intended to be – a holy nation and a Kingdom of Priests (Exodus 19:6). Until then, we are all still qualifying and we can still fall like Adam and the succeeding generations after him.
Scripture does not describe creation methods of any taxonomic category of creatures except humans. We don’t learn how grass, animals, birds and fish were created except that YHVH Elohim formed them from the ground (Genesis 2:19). He doesn’t tell us how the stars or even angels were created or when. That’s because these details are not important for the narrative. The reality, not the methodology, is the important point.
Genesis opens with the simple statement that the heaven and the earth were a finished product.
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
The account is simply straightforward. There was a beginning and that’s when the earth was created. The entire earth was created to be under the rule and reign of YHVH Elohim from the foundation of the world. It was from before the foundation of the earth that YHVH Elohim created the redemption plan and predestined Israel (Isaiah 42:6; 49:6, Matthew 25:34, Romans 8:28-30 and chapters 9-11, Ephesians 1:11, 1 Peter 2:5–10, Hebrews 4:3). YHVH knew Adam would fail and that humanity would fall to the demons and their half-human offspring the Nephilim; He knew there would be a flood and Nimrod would create the tower of Babel. He knew Abraham would become the father of many nations and that Isaac would be a miracle son brought about through Abraham’s obedience. YHVH knew that Isaac would father a rebellious son, Esau, and an obedient one, Jacob and that Jacob would be tried and tested over and over to see if he would remain loyal to YHVH. (loyalty and love are the same thing to YHVH). YHVH already knew the history of the earth, its people and Israel before He created it. And yet, He created it and even planned to be the earth’s King knowing that He would have to give up His royal place in heaven in order to become the one who would pay the required price (Genesis 15) when His people broke their covenant with Him. This is why Yeshua was slain from the foundation of the earth (Revelation 13:8).
The first humans – adam – were created in Genesis chapter 1:26-27. In chapter 2, we are given a special view of the creation of Adam. There is a thousands-of-years old debate about whether this is two creations or just one with two views. Certainly, the view that there were two creations of humans explains some things.
Whatever the details might be, there is one detail that was understood by our ancestors which escapes us in modern times. It is that when YHVH Elohim created Adam, He was creating a human counterpart to Himself – a human Melchizedek King-Priest. Yeshua is the eternal Melchizedek before the foundation of the earth was laid and He is the last Melchizedek who will reign on earth, but in the interim, Yeshua delegated authority to a line of human Melchizedeks who were supposed to be His ‘tselem’ (first used in Genesis 1:26-27), His image.
The Heavenly King and High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek created Adam to be his earthly human counterpart to oversee the earth’s human population as vassal King and Priest to the Order of Melchizedek. Adam’s job was to mediate between the Vassal King, Yeshua YHVH Elohim, and the people. By extension, the people would have contact with the Sovereign King, Yeshua’s Father and our grandfather as we say in modern times.
Adam may have been specially created either at the same time as other humans or as a second creation but he was a firstborn simply because of his special creation. The Order of Melchizedek is an Order of firstborns but we will later see that YHVH does not always take the first physical born son as the spiritual firstborn leader of the family.
Adam’s creation in Genesis 2 was different than the description of the creation of humans in Genesis 1. Let’s compare the two creations.
Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image (tselem), after our likeness (demuth): and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image (tselem), in the image (tselem) of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Two aspects of ‘tselem’ and ‘demuth’ to be understood is that ‘tselem’ means mankind was imbued by YHVH with a certain amount of authority for the purpose of dominion to care for the earth. ‘Tselem’ means “shadow” and one’s shadow is a dark representation of oneself that always does what the person does. The “shadow” is evidence of the existence of the person because the shadow can be seen when the person is not seen.
‘Demuth’ is the physical likeness of YHVH Elohim. Yeshua did not take a body to look like humans, he gave us a body that looks like Him! Yes, Yeshua has physical form from before the foundation of the earth.
Let’s look at the creation of Adam.
Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man [Adam] became a living soul.
The creation of the first humans in Genesis 1 have no such description of coming from the dust of the ground. We assume they were created the same way. But notice also that no breath was given to the humans in chapter 1 nor did YHVH Elohim say they were “living” as He had said about all the other moving creatures. In fact, these first humans were given dominion over the living creatures while they had yet to be called “living”.
Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.
Adam received a breath, a ‘neshama’, that made him a living soul. He was different and set apart like the Levites would later be set apart from the Israelites.
“Neshama” (Strong’s H5397) is the word ‘heaven’ with the quickening letter ‘nun’. Heaven – ‘shama’. Breath – ‘neshama’. What Adam received was more than what the Genesis 1 humans were given. The Genesis 1 humans were alive in a different way and for a different purpose than the other creatures and now Adam is yet again different and has a different purpose than the first people were given. Adam’s purpose was to serve YHVH Elohim as the human Melchizedek King-Priest. For that, he required the heavenly breath of God. This breath is not the Ruach which is YHVH Elohim’s Spirit. The Ruach was not to be given until after Yeshua was slain. The neshama afforded Adam authority over the Genesis 1 humans for the purpose of mediating between them and Yeshua YHVH Elohim.
Could it be that as Adam brought people into relationship with Yeshua YHVH Elohim they, too, would receive the neshama? It seems likely but that never happened because Adam failed before fully taking office. However, the neshama would quicken the nefesh (souls) of those humans to connect them to YHVH.
Adam was given a special task to make the point that he was specifically created for the earthly Order of Melchizedek Kingship and Priesthood. Just as Moses was given specific work to do, Adam had been given special responsibility. His task was to name the animals (Genesis 2:19-20).
Genesis 2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
Genesis 2:20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
This is the creation of the holy language (Zephaniah 3:9) that Israel will return to. This language was given so the people could effectively communicate with Heaven. I am not saying the other humans did not have language, only that naming the animals set up this holy language. There is another aspect of this, though. In a legal sense, Adam bound in heaven what he spoke, or bound, on earth. Yeshua vested the authority to bind and loose legal decrees to Israel in Deuteronomy 17:8-13 and to His Disciples in Matthew 18:18. Thus, the newly established holy language made it possible for the people to communicate and develop personal relationships with Yeshua YHVH Elohim.
This process had other benefits. It also taught Adam about what is holy and profane, clean and unclean and that he could not mate with any of the beasts. There would be a special creation for Adam. But before we get to the creation of Adam’s wife, let’s talk about where Adam was stationed, the Garden of Eden.
The Garden was in none other place than the same place where Jerusalem is located on Mount Moriah, Temple Mount, today. The Foundation Stone of the entire earth is on Mount Moriah. Temple Mount was not elevated to the highest important mountain on earth because it is the tallest mountain. It is elevated because it is the most important. This is because of what is there – the Foundation Stone.
Psalms 87:1 A Psalms or Song for the sons of Korah. His foundation is in the holy mountains.
The foundation of YHVH, not the city of Jerusalem, is in the holy mountains. He has vested Himself in that foundation stone. However, it is on this stone that Jerusalem is built. Literally and metaphorically, He is the foundation and Jerusalem is built on Him.
The foundation stone is a metaphor in scripture for that which is true and solidly righteous. Righteousness isn’t just an idea. It is a legal terminology in the law of the nation of Israel. The metaphor is based on the physical reality. YHVH uses physical things on the earth for spiritual examples. The use of agricultural concepts is all through the Bible. The Foundation Stone is another of our physical realities that YHVH uses as an example of righteousness.
Psalms 102:25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
What is the foundation of the earth? It is the rock upon which the earth was built. Our ancient ancestors understood this. The point is that YHVH Elohim’s city was built on the physical and spiritual Foundation Stone of the earth and the Garden of Eden was planted eastward from that.
Genesis 2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
“Eastward” is a direction from something. There is no “eastward” without something to be eastward from. What was “westward” of the Garden? YHVH’s city.
YHVH’s Temple, His city, will return to the earth but it was already here in the beginning. What happens in the end already was in the beginning. We have been in a cycle of return ever since Adam fell. In the end, YHVH Elohim’s city will return; it won’t be arriving for the first time.
The garden was eastward from the city. The Mount of Olives is eastward from Jerusalem. This is where Yeshua was crucified and it may have been in that area where the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil was planted by Heylel (Matthew 13:25). The Mount of Olives is where the red heifer is slaughtered. The red heifer symbolizes the Bride of Messiah, the earthly woman that He chooses to marry which He has created for Himself. She is slaughtered in the same place where her sins began with Adam. Yeshua died in the spot where Adam and Eve committed their sins against His Law and from where they were expelled.
Adam was created without a female counterpart, unlike the Genesis 1 humans which were created as male and female at the same time. He would remain alone until he had completed the special task of naming of all the earth’s creatures.
Genesis 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
Part of the reason for Adam naming the creatures, besides implementing a holy language, was to see if any of those creatures would be fit as a wife. Adam was being taught how to make proper selections. There is a legal spiritual lesson here. Not just any female creature is fit to be the King-Priest’s wife. She needs to be an “ezer konegdo”, in Hebrew. YHVH calls Himself an ‘ezer’ in Psalms 115:9. It can be said, then, of the ‘ezer’ that she is a divinely appointed helper and ‘konegdo’ or counterpart to her husband. Isn’t it interesting that Adam was Yeshua’s divinely appointed human counterpart and now Eve is Adam’s divinely appointed counterpart? This is the original marital hierarchy that Paul would later speak of in Ephesians 5:23. This hierarchy applies to human marriages and to the Kingdom, as well.
Then why didn’t YHVH bring a human female from among the Genesis 1 females, if indeed other humans were created before Adam? It is likely because Adam would have selected one of them. Adam would have seen she was like him but he needed a wife just like him in ways that another human female would not be. In what way would Eve have been different from the other females? She would also have had the neshama in her.
Before Eve was created, Adam was likely sequestered for training just like the Levitical Priests were without their wives for an entire week at the ordination of the Tabernacle.
What kind of training was Adam receiving? Yeshua was teaching Adam the laws by which He, Yeshua, lives in His Kingdom which governs the entire universe. Kimberly, how do you know this is what Adam was being taught? The Laws of YHVH Elohim existed as “the Word” before the foundation of the world.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
“The Word” is an idiom, a phrase that John understood meant the Books of Moses which includes both the history of Israel and the Laws governing Israel.
We would later read that Abraham was favored by YHVH Elohim because…
Genesis 26:5: Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.
Abraham learned the laws from someone.
One of the Torah’s commandments is to “teach [the Law] diligently to your children, and talk of them when thou sit in your house, and when thou walk by the way, and when thou lie down, and when thou rise up (Deuteronomy 6:7). What does Genesis say Adam and Eve were doing with Yeshua?
Genesis 3:8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
They, both Adam and Eve, were in the Garden and hearing YHVH Elohim’s voice and being trained by Him. This would not have been the only time they talked and walked with YHVH Elohim’s voice in the Garden. Given that Abraham knew the Torah and we are to teach our children the Torah and “the Word” is YHVH Elohim – Yeshua, what do you think Yeshua was talking with Adam and Eve about?
The implication in the account between Eve and the serpent shows us that Eve was aware of the Law. The law she quoted just happened to be about not eating from that Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. In all the conversations which it seems Adam and Eve were used to having we cannot possibly think this was the only commandment they received. By the way, this law is still applicable today. Most people, though, have no idea what the fruit of that tree looks like even though everyone eats from it daily.
Now, back to the creation of Eve. YHVH has special rules for the Priests and their wives. When we get to the marital laws of the Levite Priests in Leviticus, we find that there are strict rules for who they can marry. The wife’s character is of particular concern. They are forbidden to marry outside the nation of Israel. Adam was forbidden to marry outside of the Garden where the other humans lived.
The woman that marries into a Priestly line must be a specific and a special woman. That is why Eve was made from Adam (Genesis 2:21-22). Eve was not made second to Adam so that she would be less than Adam. She was created from Adam’s own body because the Priest’s wife needs to be His equal! Thus, even Yeshua’s own Bride must be His equal! I have taught on this in the past. The red heifer I spoke of earlier is both literal and symbolic of Yeshua’s Bride. She is from the red earth and has a clean beast’s body but also has the attribute of purity within her own being because of her husband. The Bride of Yeshua comes from His side just like Eve came from Adam’s side. She will be slaughtered in the Tribulation and will have her internal impurities burned away by the Holy Spirit (Isaiah 1:25) and her ashes will purify others.
Yeshua gave the red heifer His attributes: the attributes of dying on a tree (the cedar wood), shedding her blood (the red or scarlet material) and the hyssop that symbolizes the redemption and cleansing of all Israel in her slaughtering ritual. Yeshua attributes much that is unearned to His people because of His grace toward them. Yeshua’s Bride will be His equal because of His attributions toward her and so was Adam’s wife his equal.
Now we come to Genesis chapter 3, the saga of the two trees. One tree was all about doing things YHVH’s way – the Tree of Life. It represented YHVH’s Law of separating holy from profane and clean from unclean, and its fruit gives eternal life (Deuteronomy 4:6, Proverbs 3:18, Revelation 2:22). The other tree represented lawlessness and presented a false promise of eternal life. The false promise says if you obtain all knowledge you will be “like” Elohim.
The serpent twisted Eve’s understanding of what humans were created for in Genesis 1. Humans were created to be in YHVH Elohim’s likeness. The serpent told Eve that humans needed to do something extra to become in YHVH Elohim’s likeness, a practice that the serpent implied YHVH Elohim had withheld the knowledge of from Adam and Eve. The lie he implied was that humans were not already in YHVH Elohim’s likeness meaning they were lacking His likeness. The solution for this lack was to eat from the tree Heylel, the serpent, had planted next to the Tree of Life.
Let me say some things about YHVH’s and our enemy now that we are on this subject.
Heylel (Isaiah14:12 (Lucifer in the Catholic Church’s Latin language and who we call “satan”)), has been man’s enemy from the beginning. Many people have theorized why. There is a theory that Heylel became jealous of man’s appointed dominance over the earth because it means to Heylel that the angels were being placed under humans in rank (1 Corinthians 6:3). So he gathered an army of angels and destroyed the planet between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2. This is called the gap theory. The theory says that God had to recreate the earth in Genesis 1:2 because it became void; it was not created void in verse 1. Heylel, now realizing that he can’t prevent God’s plan to create a species of beings that will eventually be a little higher on the creation scale by destroying the earth decided to go after humanity instead. And in the process, it will be humanity that destroys themselves and the earth. This is Heylel’s plan. This is the same plan given by to Balaam to Balak that is now known as Balaam’s curse. It is the means to get Israel to curse themselves. Well, Heylel wants all of mankind to curse itself.
Another reason for Heylel’s outrage is that the only creatures to receive redemption after rebellion is humanity. The Book of Enoch describes the angels asking Enoch to intercede for them to receive forgiveness for their rebellion but YHVH denied their request. No other of God’s creation are redeemable. The value of redemption in Elohim’s plan cannot be overestimated because it is through the redemption plan that humans will become what YHVH created us for – to serve Him by ruling over the planet as His ‘tselem’, His “shadows”, who are just like Him in a lesser way. In fact, redemption is the core reason for the existence of the Order of Melchizedek on the earth. Do you see now why YHVH Elohim, Yeshua, the Heavenly High Priest in the Order of Melchizedek created a human counterpart in the beginning? It was for the purpose of bringing all people to the Heavenly Melchizedek. The ultimate purpose of redemption is relations between YHVH Elohim and humans.
YHVH Elohim vested His authority into the humans who were created in His image (tselem) in Genesis 1:26-27. This is what Heylel used against Eve – the idea that humans were not already in YHVH Elohim’s image. Eve believed the lie.
Some say Eve misquoted the law because she added instruction to not touch the tree but all this proves is that our additions to YHVH’s law do not prevent our sinning if that is what we want to do.
Adam’s choice to eat or not eat the fruit given to him by Eve off of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil has been debated forever and a day. There are numerous ways to look at his actions, but Paul would later tell us that Eve was deceived while Adam sinned. I can’t say whether they knew what the consequences of YHVH’s statement would mean, the statement that “in the day that you eat of it, you will surely die” (Genesis 2:17).
One reason I believe the creation days were 1,000-year days is because Adam was created after the first Sabbath and lived 930 years. Some of those years were spent in the Garden learning to be the human Melchizedek. But most of them were probably lived outside the garden after the fall. If Adam was to die “in the day” that he sinned, and he didn’t die in the first 24 hours after he sinned after he sinned, then he died within the first 1,000 years of that cycle he was in, the cycle we are in that has somewhat more than 1,000 years to finish.
Adam named Eve after their fall (Genesis 3:20), something that he was not given permission to do. It was Adam’s job to name the animals but he named his wife, too. Was he thinking of her now as an animal? This is a further deterioration and what always happens once we begin sinning. Our spiritual eyes see things that are not there like our own authority that we mistake for YHVH’s and they don’t see what is there like YHVH’s instructions to us.
Adam and Eve were not exiled from the Garden as punishment. Their punishments were listed as difficulty conceiving and raising children and toiling over the ground to make it bring forth produce for food (Genesis 3:16-19). The reason they were exiled was to prevent them from eating from the Tree of Life which would have caused them to be stuck in their impure but eternal state which would have been an unredeemable condition (Genesis 3:22).
Adam and Eve began to procreate after they were exiled from the Garden. Two sons were born to them in chapter 4. Cain and Abel were likely twins. Twins are a scriptural pattern. One of them is often wicked, the other righteous. Esau and Jacob are another such example as are Perez and Zarah the twin sons of Judah. There are others.
A problem happened when Cain did not do a proper sacrifice and Abel did. YHVH did not receive Cain’s sacrifice, but He received Abel’s. Cain became jealous of Abel.
Cain and Abel would have learned about sacrificing from Adam who learned it from Yeshua YHVH Elohim when He made animal skins to clothe them (Genesis 3:21). In the Levitical law of Priests, they get the animal skins for their own use (Leviticus 7:8), and those animal skins come from the sacrifices. This is another of our clues that Adam was an Order of Melchizedek Priest. While Yeshua did the sacrifice, and could have kept the skins for Himself, He gave them to Adam and Eve. Had this not been a Priestly couple, they could not have had the skins. So Yeshua did a sin sacrifice for them then and there as they were being removed from the Garden. This sacrifice is reflected in the annual Yom Kippur ceremony. Afterward, Adam continued as the human Melchizedek.
Cain rebelled against the sacrificial instructions. Cain brought only the mincha offering, the grain offering. This was the first instance of someone devising his own way of worshiping his King and God, a sin that continues among YHVH’s people to this day. All offerings must be animal sacrifices because blood must be shed for sin (Hebrews 9:22) and all offerings must be accompanied by a mincha offering with the exception of a guilt or ‘asham’ offering.
Leviticus 5:11 But if he be not able to bring two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, then he that sinned shall bring for his offering the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a sin offering; he shall put no oil upon it, neither shall he put any frankincense thereon: for it is a sin offering.
The mincha offering was for the poorest of the poor. Cain was not poor but brought the offering of a poor man. In effect, he wanted to do the least that he had to do and he added lying to his list of sins. Then, because Yeshua YHVH Elohim did not accept Cain’s sacrifice, he committed the first killing (Genesis 4:8-14). But his sin started before that. It started with rejecting the sacrificial system set up by YHVH Elohim. Like Cain, when we sin, we are not committing just one sin. Numerous sins run together in the act of rebellion.
The first mark that YHVH put on someone was for protection. In the end of days, our mark will be for our protection. Cain was marked because of his sin but we will be marked because our sins were forgiven.
In Genesis 4:17, after Cain had been removed from his family, he got married, had a son and built a city (Genesis 4:16-17). The age old question about where Cain got his wife may be answered by what I presented earlier. There may have been humans before Adam.
Throughout this teaching, I have equated the events of the first humans and Adam and Eve in the context of the Torah, the law of the land of Yeshua YHVH Elohim. So here, the question must be asked: if YHVH was teaching and enforcing the Law on earth in those days, why did YHVH not execute Cain for murder since murder has an automatic death penalty?
The scripture says Cain committed ‘harag’ (Genesis 4:8, 14-15). The commandment to not murder (Exodus 20:13) uses ‘ratsag’. ‘Harag’ is unintentional whether by accident or in self-defense. These kinds of killings require a “city of refuge” (Numbers 35:25-28, 32). Cain needed YHVH’s protection long enough to build a city of refuge that he named after his son, Enoch (Genesis 4:17).
Another man in Cain’s lineage, Lamech (Genesis 4:23), also killed (harag) someone. This is the first recorded instance of generational sin – Lamech committing Cain’s sin – but we will see that Cain’s sin tainted Adam’s next son, too.
After the downfall and exile of Cain…
Genesis 4:25 Adam knew his wife again. She gave birth to a son, and named him Seth, saying, “for God has given me another child instead of Abel, for Cain killed him.”
Genesis 4:26 A son was also born to Seth, and he named him Enosh. At that time men began to call on Yahweh’s name.
Adam was still alive and knew how to call on YHVH’s name because he had been trained for Melchizedek Priesthood in the Garden so it is likely that Adam taught people how to pray and call on YHVH’s name.
Then, Adam begat another son but there was something wrong with him.
Gen 5:3 Adam lived one hundred thirty years, and became the father of a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth.
Something was different about Seth. What was it? He was the first human son recorded to be born in the human father’s likeness, not the Heavenly Creator’s likeness. Notice this happened after the first rebellion and killing outside the Garden of Eden with Cain. It’s as if Cain’s rebellion tainted the DNA of all of Adam’s lineage moving forward.
Certainly, all of mankind was affected when Adam and Eve were forcibly removed from their Garden station. Now, another taint has come to humanity through Cain and it caused his brother, Seth, to be born in Adam’s likeness, not YHVH Elohim’s. Generational sin affects the DNA of the entirety of humanity. This is another reason the nation of Israel’s Tabernacle and Temple had to be cleansed on Yom Kippur every year. We are mostly unaware of how our sins defile other people we do not even know and YHVH’s Temple in Heaven which the Hebrews author taught us is the reason for Yeshua to have ascended after rising on the first day of the week to cleanse the Heavenly Temple with His blood.
The Genesis 5 genealogy gives us the list of the next Melchizedeks, the entire line from Adam to Noah. The pattern for the Levite Priesthood was set right here. The High Priest’s office and the other priestly offices pass from father to son. But remember that it isn’t always the firstborn son that is chosen to carry on the King-Priest duties of the Order of Melchizedek. This Order is an Order of firstborns. The creation account shows Adam to be a second special creation in which the attribute of “firstborn” was attributed to him. YHVH breathing the neshama into him is what made Adam the rightful firstborn. Noah was in this list but his firstborn was not his oldest, it was his youngest son, Shem who became the Melchizedek.
There were 2 men in the Genesis 5 list who did not become a Melchizedek. The first was Enoch, the second Lamech (not the same as Lamech, Cain’s grandson). Enoch was in the lineage but he walked so closely with YHVH Elohim that Enoch was taken. Lamech was Noah’s father but died before his father, Methuselah, who was the current Melchizedek until just before the flood. Lamech would have inherited the Melchizedek office had he lived. It was Noah who attained that office upon Methuselah’s death.
The first 8 verses of chapter 6 are about the corruption of humans. A long time has passed since Adam walked with Yeshua in the Garden. Adam is now dead having died within the first 1,000-year prophetic day. Now, the demons, which were supposed to be mankind’s ministers and guardians but who rebelled against YHVH Elohim, are procreating with human women in order to corrupt human DNA so humans would be unfit for redemption and so there would not be a fit vessel for YHVH Elohim to come through as the man, Yeshua.
The offspring of demons and human women are called Nephilim – giants. They were tall in stature but also “giants” in other ways. They formed the governments at that time. They ran the world and ate humans for food.
Yeshua said that the world would return to this kind of corruption before He returns. Right now, we face the specter of vaccinations tainted with engineered biologics and electronics that are designed to once again taint human DNA. Guess which line of humans will remain pure and will not be tainted and therefore not be destroyed? It will be the Melchizedek’s kids! I’ll have more on that in the next teaching. Guess which humans will be destroyed? It will be those with tainted DNA.
By the time we get to Genesis 6, all humans except a very few had been corrupted by Heylel’s demons, the fallen angels, and their offspring the Nephilim were on the brink of destroying all human life just like what will happen at the end of time, the time we are now in. The Jewish Talmud says that their coming messiah will be a Nephilim, half human half demon because that is the definition of a Nephilim.
Before I close, let me give you a quick overview of the Order of Melchizedek from beginning to end.
The Order of Melchizedek exists in the universe eternally. Its King-Priest is eternal with no beginning and no end. YHVH Elohim is the heavenly King and High Priest of that Order. His name is Yeshua. He created a special line of human Melchizedeks starting with Adam to mediate between the earth’s people and heaven. The first Melchizedek was expelled from the Garden but continued in the human King-Priest capacity. Upon Adam’s death, Seth became the Melchizedek.
Down the line, Noah and then Shem, took that office. Abraham was next in line but died before taking office because Shem outlived him.
The Order would pass through Jacob’s family until the Israelites were made into the nation called Israel. They were intended to be a nation of firstborn Priests (Exodus 19:6) but they led the Israelites into worship of an Egyptian demon deity and lost their right to serve. At the golden calf incident is where YHVH substituted the Levites for the Israelite firstborns making that change in the law (Hebrews 7:12).
Now, jumping through time to Yeshua YHVH Elohim, the King and Creator, taking physical form. His Father (who is our grandfather in modern terms) allowed Yeshua to pay the penalty for Israel’s sins.
Upon His death, two things happened. The first was that the House of Judah was cut off from the nation of Israel the same way the House of Israel had been. They killed their own King and there was now no nation of Israel while Yeshua was in the grave. Israel literally died with Him because He is Israel! This completely severed their relationship with YHVH Elohim through the fleshly circumcision of Abraham.
The second event that happened was that at resurrection Yeshua took on Himself the role of the earthly human Melchizedek. Yeshua always was the YHVH Elohim head of the Order of Melchizedek in heaven, but now He has taken on the earthly mantle, too, because no human has ever been as righteous as Yeshua. This is what the Book of Hebrews is trying to explain.
There will be more in the next teaching in this series, so be sure to come back! And yes, a New World Order is coming and it is called the Order of Melchizedek!
