The First Coming
The consecration as a Zadok High Priest of Israel

by Rav Sha'ul

 

 

In the Plan of Yahuah, a human had to be born on Earth and reverse the effects of what the first human inflicted on humanity and creation.  

Romans 5:12

15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Yahusha the Messiah, overflow to the many! 16 Nor can the gift of God be compared with the result of one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. 17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Yahusha the Messiah!

This man was destined to be born within the established bloodline of High Priest.  That established bloodline is The House of Zadok.  Let’s walk through the progressive revelation of the House of Zadok.  The bloodline established for The Messiah to eternally serve as High Priest.

 

YHVH established The House of Zadok for The Messiah

First; below we see that the sons of Phinehas son of Eleazar son of Aaron was to serve Yahuah as High Priests and the “covenant of peace” was passed down through this bloodline.  That covenant of peace was to become The Yahushaic Covenant:

Numbers 25

10 Then Yahuah spoke to Moses, saying: 11 “Phinehas the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, has turned back My wrath from the children of Israel, because he was zealous with My zeal among them, so that I did not consume the children of Israel in My zeal. 12 Therefore say, ‘Behold, I give to him My covenant of peace; 13 and it shall be to him and his descendants after him a covenant of an everlasting priesthood, because he was zealous for his God, and made atonement for the children of Israel.’”

Upon the sins of Eli’s sons, Yahuah then prophesied He would rise up the House of Zadok from the descendants of Eleazar:

1 Samuel 2

35 Then I will raise up for Myself a faithful priest who shall do according to what is in My heart and in My mind. I will build him a sure house, and he shall walk before My anointed forever.

This prophecy was fulfilled in Zadok a descendant Phinehas son Eleazar to Aaron.  The name Zadok means “righteous”.  Zadok was anointed High Priest and aided King David during the revolt of his son Absalom, and was consequently instrumental in bringing King Solomon to the throne. After Solomon's building of The First Temple in Jerusalem, Zadok was the first High Priest to serve in Yahuah’s Temple a foreshadowing of the coming Messiah. Zadok was very loyal to those anointed by Yahuah (David and Solomon) and a staunch opponent of paganism.  The prophet Ezekiel extols the sons of Zadok as staunch opponents of paganism during the era of its pagan worship and indicates their birthright to unique duties and privileges in the future temple (Ezekiel 42:13, 43:19).

Ezekiel 43:19

19 You shall give a young bull for a sin offering to the priests, the Levites, who are of the seed of Zadok, who approach Me to minister to Me,’ says the Yahuah.

In the document Community Rule from the Dead Sea Scrolls we see a central role for the sons of Zadok the Priests' within that community; the 'Teacher of Righteousness' (Moreh Zedek) is the title of the one who founded that community.  That MorehZedek was the Zadok High Priest John the Baptist.  This Community Rule document in the Dead Sea Scrolls describes the sons of Zadok as "To be as one in following the Law and (sharing) wealth and reconciling (based on) the mouth of the sons of Tzadok the keepers of the covenant".  The Covenant of Peace which would be the New Covenant was passed down through these Zadok Priests all the way to Yahusha who would be the signatory.

As I fully developed in my book Melchizedek and The Passover Lamb, Yahusha was a bloodline descendant of The House of Zadok.  We see a “Zadok” specifically mentioned in Yahusha’s lineage:

Matthew 1:14

14 Azor the father of Zadok, Zadok the father of Akim, Akim the father of Elihud,

Yahusha was also the great grandson of the Zadok High Priest who presided over the rebuilding of The Second Temple whose name was Yahusha III.  Yahusha III was another foreshadowing of the coming Messiah who would be his great grandson.

The promise Yahuah made below flowed through the House of Zadok which was the lineage prepared for the coming Messiah who would restore this promise and the priesthood and who would make atonement for the sons of Yahuah:

Numbers 25

12 Therefore say, ‘Behold, I give to him My covenant of peace; 13 and it shall be to him and his descendants after him a covenant of an everlasting priesthood, because he was zealous for his God, and made atonement for the children of Israel.’”

 

Yahusha came the first time to be consecrated as THE eternal Zadok High Priest

The purpose of the first coming of the Messiah was to restore the House of Zadok, be the signatory of The Covenant of Peace, and to make atonement for the children of Israel.  MorehZedek, John the Baptist, who was the prophesied 'Teacher of Righteousness' was the legitimate High Priest of Israel.  John was sent by Yahuah to teach Yahusha and prepare him to take his rightful place over The House of Zadok as High Priest.  John was the grandson of Yahusha III and first male heir (Yahusha III had 3 daughters and no sons).  So John assumed the position of High Priest in the eyes of Yahuah.  Yahusha was next in line to John being the next male heir (the great grandson of Yahusha III).  So John, the Morehzedek, literally instructed Yahusha and then consecrated Yahusha as Melchizedek the ruling Zadok.  Yahusha was a descendant of Yahusha III and was from the line of David through Solomon (through Joseph) and restored the throne as well.  We see John’s father the priest Zachariah's prophesy this role of MorehZedek over his son:

Luke 1:67-80

67 Now his father Zacharias was filled with the Spirit of Holiness, and began to prophesy, saying:

(First Zacharias speaks of the coming Messiah Melchizedek)

68 “Blessed is Yahuah God of Israel, For He has visited and redeemed His people, 69 And has raised up a horn of salvation for us In the house of His servant David, 70 As He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets, Who have been since the world began,
71 That we should be saved from our enemies And from the hand of all who hate us, 72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers
And to remember His holy covenant, 73 The oath which He swore to our father Abraham: 74 To grant us that we, Being delivered from the hand of our enemies, Might serve Him without fear,
75 In holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life.

(now Zacharias describes the role of his son John MorehZedek)

76 “And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Highest (prophet of Yahuah); For you will go before the face of Yahuah to prepare His ways (as Yahuah is to bring forth the Branch), 77 To give knowledge of salvation to His people by the remission of their sins, 78 Through the tender mercy of our God, With which the Dayspring from on high has visited us; 79 To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, To guide our feet into the way of (the covenant of) peace.”

(John was a Zadok, heir to Yahusha III to the office of High Priest of Israel.  Zacharias was confirming that John was the next High Priest and that John would “guide our feet into the way of peace” which is the role of Zadok Priests:

Numbers 25

12 Therefore say, ‘Behold, I give to him My covenant of peace; 13 and it shall be to him and his descendants after him a covenant of an everlasting priesthood, because he was zealous for his God, and made atonement for the children of Israel.’”

We also see that John’s role would be to announce to the world that Yahusha was The Messiah and Eternal Zadok High Priest:

John 1

6 There was a man sent from Yahuah, whose name was John. 7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light (Yahusha is the light of the world), that all through John might believe (because John was The High Priest of Israel). 8 John was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light (who was Yahusha).

We know John did just that, announced Yahusha as the fulfillment of The Passover Lamb:

John 1:29

29 The next day John saw Yahusha (his cousin and his protégé’) coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

You see, John knew the prophecies concerning The Messiah and that the Messiah would come to fulfill the Feast Cycle.  John understood that the Messiah had to come first as The Passover Lamb.   John wasn’t quite sure; however, if there were two Messiahs or one that came twice.

Luke 7

18 John’s disciples told him about all these things (Yahusha was doing). Calling two of them, 19 John sent them to Yahusha to ask, “Are you the one who is to come (again as King to fulfill the fall feasts), or should we expect someone else?”
