Psalm 110:1. With regard to the Hebrew definition of the word
"LORD" and "Lord" in the
Scripture, "The LORD said
unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy
footstool." It is obvious the first use of the word
"LORD" refers to [Yehovah] or
Jehovah (Jewish national name of God), while the use of the second word
"Lord" [adown] or sovereign, controller, Lord, master, owner,
etc. refers to David calling Yeshua his Lord and Master. The Bible
describes the monotheism of God as ONE God in UNITY
with three separate
but distinct personalities and bodies:
The Bible teaches that there is a Divine Godhead (Trinity) and it is
comprised of three distinct entities that
are one in unity and purpose.
A very clear illustration of these distinctions can be
seen in Matthew
3:16-17, "And 1Jesus,
when he was baptized, went
out of the water:
the heavens were opened unto him,
and he saw the
of God descending like a dove, and
lighting upon him: And lo a
from heaven, saying, This is
my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
The term "One In Unity" is revealed in the passage of Jesus'
now I am no more in the world, but these
are in the world, and I
come to thee. Holy Father, keep
through thine own name those
whom thou hast given me, that they may be
one as we are" (John
17:11). "And the glory
which thou gavest me I have given them; that
they may be one, even as we are one"
God is both the Father and the God of Yeshua and He is not Jesus
Christ. "Blessed be the God
and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which according to his abundant mercy
hath begotten us again unto
a lively hope by the resurrection of
Jesus Christ from the dead"
(II Peter 1:3).
Therefore, the Divine Trinity can be illustrated by the evidence of
separate and distinct persons, of which
each one has His own individual
spirit body, personal soul, and personal
spirit. It was this construct of
design that God used when making human
beings. "And God said, Let
us make man in our image, after our
likeness..." (Genesis 1:26).
Therefore, the body, whether spiritual or
physical, merely provides
housing for the soul and spirit.
Thus, "The invisible things of him from the creation of the
clearly seen, being understood by the
things that are made, even his
eternal power and Godhead; so that they
are without excuse"
In addition, after God had created Adam, He said, "...it is not
the man should be alone; I will make him
an help meet for him ...
Therefore shall a man leave his father
and his mother, and shall
cleave unto his wife; and they shall be
one flesh" (Genesis 2:18-24).
The Father is the head of Christ (I Corinthians 11:3), the Son is the
Begotten of the Father (John 1:14), and
the Holy Ghost proceeds forth
from both the Father and the Son (John
14:16; Acts 2:33-37).
While some may think it is very difficult to understand the meaning of
Divine Trinity, it really is quiet
simple, if we will quit trying to contradict
God's Word, and simply take what He says
"For now we see
through a glass, darkly; but then face to
face: now we know in part;
but then shall I know even as also I am
known" (I Corinthians 3:12).
Jesus now sets on the right hand of His Father while His Kingdom seed
that He sowed prior to His crucifixion matures of fruit, awaiting His
final harvest (Matthew 13:37-43).
With regard to all wickedness being destroyed prior
to or immediately following the second coming of the Messiah, the Bible
makes it clear the "Last Enemy" to be destroyed will be
[Death] (I Corinthians 15:26-28). Satan will be bound a 1,000
years during the Millennial Reign of Yeshua, "And I saw an angel
come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great
chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent,
which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast
him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him,
that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years
should be fulfilled: and after that he must be lossed a little season"
The fire spoken of in Malach 4:1-3, "For, behold, the day
cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that
do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them
up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave
them neither root nor branch: ..." This day is the
"Great and Notable Day of the Lord", the second advent of
Christ. The fire that will burn up the proud and the wicked like
stubble, leaving nothing of their bodies, will be the fire and brimstone
spoken of in Ezekiel 38:17-23 and the flaming fire that will go out
before Christ and His angels and Saints.
This is the consuming fire of the battle of Armageddon on the day of
Christ's second advent. The proud and the wicked will not be
consigned to the eternal Lake of Fire until after the second
resurrection, but are currently being temporally held in Hell (Luke
16:19-21). They will be resurrected and judged at the Great White
Throne judgment and rewarded according to their deeds done while in the
body (Revelation 20:13). Then, they shall be cast alive, never to
burn up, into a lake of fire to be tormented both day and night forever.
(Isaiah 66:22-24; Matthew 25:41,46; Mark 9:41-49; Revelation 14:9-11;
Thus, the "burning up" of this passage only refers to the
death and destruction of the mortal, physical body and not to the death of
the eternal soul, spirit, and resurrected body.
The Messiah was not to come after the "linage" of Melchizedek, but rather
after the [order] of the great high priest Melchizedek (Psalm
110:4). The Hebrew word for "order" is "dibrah"
meaning a reason, suit or style. This [dibrah] does not refer to a
physical or biological lineage, but a likeness or similarity to
individual characteristics. Melchizedek had no genealogical record
of his beginning of days nor his ending of days and he was an elected
high priest of God. Thus became the likeness of Yeshua in
relation to His eternal Father. "In the beginning was the
Word, [Not Yeshua] and the Word was with God, and the Word was
God. And the Word was made flesh, [Yeshua] and dwelt among
us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the
father,) full of grace as of truth" (St. John 1:1,14).
Jesus' biological lineage to the tribe of Judah (Isaiah 11:1) through
Joseph was one of adoption. The Bible teaches that while the
Mosaic Law forbade the removal of inheritance from tribe to tribe, "So shall not the inheritance of the children of
Israel remove from tribe to tribe: for every one of the children of
Israel shall keep himself to the inheritance of the tribe of his fathers"
(Numbers 36:7), exception was made for adoption.
"Now Sheshan had no sons,
but daughters. And Sheshan had a servant, an Egyptian, whose name
was Jarha. And Sheshan gave his daughter to Jarha his servant to
wife; and she bare him Attai" (I Chronicles 2:34-35).
Although, the Mosaic Law forbade this, "This is the thing which
the LORD doth command
concerning the daughters of Zelophehad, saying, Let them marry to whom
they think best; only to the family of the tribe of their father shall
they marry" (Numbers 36:6).
Thus, an Egyptian became
heir to Sheshan by marring his daughter. The father's inheritance
could then remain in the family through the daughter. To this end,
the adopted son of Sheshan became a son and a legal heir of the tribe of
So the priesthood of the Messiah after the order of Melchizedek
is as follows:
"For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of
which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of
Melchizedek there ariseth another
Who is made not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after
the power of an endless life.
For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of
For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before
for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.
For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better
hope did; by the which we draw nigh to God.
And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest:
(For those priests were made without an oath by him that said unto
him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for
ever after the order of Melchizedek:)
By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.
And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered
to continue by reason of death:
But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable
Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come
unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for
For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless,
undefiled, separate form sinners, and made higher than the
Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up
sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for
this he did once, when he offered up himself.
For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity: but the
word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is
consecrated for evermore" (Hebrews 7:14-28).
