    I’m speaking with Amir Atieh of Natanael Ministries in Western Australia today. Amir was born to Israeli parents and grew up in Ramale, not too far from Tel Aviv. His life and growing up years were filled with abuse and pain on many levels. Amir grew up among secular Israelis, Christians, and Arabs, never knowing his true heritage until, one day, he learned the truth about the promised Messiah of the Hebrew Scriptures.

    I had the opportunity to talk with Amir about his life's journey from a secular Israeli to a prominent and growing Messianic Voice of Truth based in Perth, Western Australia.

    Join me for a chat about Amir Atieh (Arabic for a "giver"), his testimony, and his transformation from a secular Israeli to a Messianic Teacher. Visit his website: https://www.nathanael-ministries.com/

    I shall continue with where I left off in PART 1 of this two-part program on Shavuot or Pentecost. Shavu’ot, in the Bible, presents itself as an annual festival about biblical restoration, renewal, and completion.

    Today, I will return to my focus on the link between the Festival of Shavuot and what many often refer to as a concept called the "rapture." Said differently, this idea can be better understood as to what Yeshua refers to as the resurrection of the Last Day, in Hebrew, the "Techiat HaMatim."

    Essentially, Shavuot or Pentecost is likely the Day and Hour that no one has yet experientially known...ever! Because it is yet a future event that we are all waiting for. This is what Hebrews 11:39-40 is referring to. It is the same event that Yeshua refers to in Matthew 24:33 and John 6:40 - the end and the door of summer. It's the same idea that Paul talks about as the "door of hope" in Romans 8:23-25.

    Join me today for the program, "Shavuot (Feast of Weeks/Pentecost) End Times and the Theme of the Last Day Resurrection - PART 2.

    Let’s talk about the annual celebration of the Festival of Weeks or what Yehovah refers to in Scripture as Shavu’ot or in Greek – “Pentecost.” Shavu’ot, in the Bible, presents itself as an annual festival about biblical restoration, renewal, and completion.

    A harvesting of souls performed as an ingathering and separating of wheat from tares (Matthew 13:30).

    A restoration to repair Adam’s treasonable transaction with the Tree of the Knowledge of Good but Evil in Genesis 3:6 and then passing that corruption down to all of us.

    A calling to freely become an ally and associate of King Messiah’s government administration on earth, as it is also in Shalem, the Kingdom of Heaven (Genesis 14:18 and 1 Corinthians 6:3)

    A rebuilding of Yehovah’s Government of Heaven on earth, as it is in heaven (Acts 15:16 based on Amos 9:11).

    An end of salvation through the door of summer and the start of a new component of eternal life through the door of hope (Romans 8:25 and Matthew 24:33)

    A bodily transformation through a promised resurrection on the Last Day (John 6:40 and Romans 8:23)

    In this program, we will speak about Exodus 19:5-6, the Melchizedek link to the New Covenant Book of Hebrews chapters 6-8, and the exchange of the Levitical law for the higher and more superior Melchizedek law of the King/Priest Messiah. We will also look into the naming and birth of Yochanan or John the Baptist in Luke Chapter 1 as well as the significance of the ministry of John or Yochanan "the Baptist" and his immersion of Yeshua in the Jordan in Matthew 3:13 and how it relates to the ministry of Elijah in Malachi Chapters 3-4, who was a prophet divinely appointed to announce the restoration of all things before the coming of Messiah who must restore the fallen tent or Tabernacle of the House of David.

    Our discussion will also examine the context of Matthew 15:24-25 as it speaks about a Canaanite Woman and the bread that falls from the Master's Table. Further, we will also look into Galatians 3:19, which concerns a reference to the law of the Levitical Priesthood and how this speaks about the Melchizedek priesthood calling in light of the Spirit and Power of Elijah.

    Among the many religious issues of the Jewish people during the late Second Temple Period, a major point of conflict was about the festival and civil calendars of Judaism. Understanding this brings a further disclosure about the Priestly House of Tzadok in light of the 1947 discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in the nearby caves of the Qumran area in the State of Israel.

    The Second Temple Period of Judaism was a unique time in the history of the Jewish People. Among the many religious issues of the Jewish people at that time, one major point of conflict was that of the calendar. You wouldn’t think that this would be such a major issue, however, we know this to be true historically, thanks in part to the 1947 discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

    On my program today, we will hear from Eddie Chumney of Hebraic Heritage Ministries. Eddie has dedicated a lot of research time to sorting out Judaism’s calendar issues of the past two millennia and how they touch us now, particularly as it relates to the Jewish Messianic Movement that we know today.

    Each year at the season of Passover, multitudes of millions of Jewish people from all over the world, as well as those who are not natively born to the Jewish faith and culture, all gather together around each of their local family tables to remember a very special festival that is called Passover in the Bible. Why do they do this? What does it all mean, and particularly, HOW is the Passover table service conducted?

    With today’s episode of Real Israel Talk Radio (with an extended running time of one hour and 42 minutes), I am going to present to you what I understand and appreciate about the Passover. I will share with you my version of the biblical Haggadah or retelling of the Passover story. However, I will tell you the story from my point of view rather than from the culturally typical Jewish point of view. This means the readings and explanations that you will hear me speak about from my Haggadah will present according to a more non-traditional Jewish Seder. Essentially, my focus IS NOT designed to elevate the customary "fun" of the Passover with all of its typical table rituals, songs, and ceremonies that have come to shape the Jewish Passover of today. From my point of view, most of those rituals and ceremonies are merely SHADOWS of the True Passover as it relates to an unseen REALITY. My Passover Haggadah is designed to help us understand NOT WHAT the Passover is as a series of songs, prayers, and fun family time, but rather WHO the Passover is from a redemptive point of view.

    From my point of view, the Passover service is NOT a noun to elevate all the related ceremonies and table rituals of the event because I think this is a mistaken focus. As you will come to see from this program, the Passover is a verb designed to elevate an all-important Messianic redemption, which will point us to the solemn actions of the One called Yeshua, the Messiah. As I understand the event, the Passover, is about honoring the Messianic narratives of the New Covenant. Please, do come along for this journey into learning about the Passover from our presently-unseen Messianic Redeemer – One who WAS, who IS, and who IS TO COME.

    NOTE: The following program was recorded in late August of 2023. Sadly, near the end of November 2023, attorney Iver Bruce Bye was the victim of a horrible assault on his life. He passed away on June 8, 2024, due to the serious head injuries that he received. Though it could be classified as murder, I do not want to go that far until I've had an opportunity to speak with his wife, Linda. Iver was a faithful believer in Yeshua and the Torah. We shall meet him again on the Last Day great resurrection as Yeshua promised in John 6:40.

    Enjoy the program.

    Previously, in Part 1, we heard from California Attorney Iver Bye, who spoke about American Law and how it often relates to what is found written in the Bible. In today's program, Part 2, Attorney Iver Bye will talk more about the definitions of legal words. He will also take us on a brief journey into the backstory of the U.S. Constitution and a little about the framers and founders who brought us this essential document that defines the United States of America.

    Attorney Iver Bye has been active in courtroom trials and criminal law since graduating from law school in the late 1970s. However, what sets this attorney apart from many others in his legal profession is that over the past many decades, Iver has remained devoted to Biblical teachings and how they relate to us in everyday life. Let us now continue with where we left off from our last program.

    In this Real Israel Talk Radio episode, I will close my 30-part series on the Last Passover Week Chronology of Yeshua. With this extended study (one hour and six minutes), I will summarize all I have presented since starting the series. I will begin and end with three questions:

    1) How did Yeshua manage to DO (meaning, TO BE THE PASSOVER LAMB) and also to EAT the Passover Lamb with his disciples precisely according to Exodus Chapter 12?

    2) How did Yeshua come to be called the PASSOVER Lamb?

    3) What does it mean that Yeshua, the Passover Lamb, died for the sins of the world?

    We read from the Hebrew text of Psalm 110:4 - "Yehovah has made AN OATH and will He will not be comforted [with any other decree], “You are a Cohen or Priest forever through The WORD of Melchizedek.” English translations usually express this as “The Order of Melchizedek,” but based on the context of Psalm 110:4, it is not about a religious or spiritual group, order, or society.

    The Hebrew root supporting "The Order" of Melchizedek is D-V-R (Dalet-Vet-Resh), which is about Yehovah’s SPEECH or WORD. Therefore, I am suggesting that we should understand “the Order of Melchizedek” not as some kind of religious order but rather as a COMMAND and OATH from the WORD of Yehovah delivered to the nation through Yehovah's messengers of Heaven who made regular visits to the House of the Sons of Tzadok at Qumran.

    This very well might explain one of today’s Jewish Orthodox Songs of the Sabbath - “Shalom Aleichem.” Could the lyrics of this song for the Sabbath Day have come from the early first-century Zadokite believers in Yeshua who were known to be associates and supporters of the Prophets, Priests, and Judges of the House of Tzadok? Is it possible that this song inadvertently slipped past the ancient Rabbinic censors and, through Rabbinic tradition, managed to make it into the weekly liturgy of today's Judaism?

    Today, we will also ask why Paul wrote the words of Colossians 2:16-19. And also, why Yeshua said to Nicodemus in John 3, The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said to Him, “How can these things be?”Yeshua answered and said to him, “Are you the Teacher of Israel and do not know these things?"

    These matters and so much more will be addressed in this study of the Qumran Zadokites.

    This is Episode 143 and PART 29 in a series of studies about the Qumran Zadokites, the New Covenant or "New Testament" writings, and Judaism.

    Beginning around 150 years before Yeshua, the Pharisee was called a Hasid because the Hebrew term means a “loyalist.” In other words, Pharisees were political and religious loyalists supportive of the family dynasty of the Hasmoneans. The Tzadokim, or Sadducees, relates to the term Zadok, which was a different group of priests not related to the Sons of the House of Tzadok at Qumran. It appears from surviving documents of the time that they took their name from Zadok, an early disciple of Antigonus of Sokho in Judea. He produced a faction of disciples who called themselves Tzadokim.

    With today's episode of Zadokite studies, we will focus on much of the specific Zadokite terminology that is associated with the Zadokite supporters and allies of Jerusalem who called themselves "The Way" (see Acts 24:15-16). This is the same group that Sha'ul or Paul came out of while en route to Damascus of Qumran. His story is found in the Book of Acts 9. With your readings in the "New Testament," you will recognize much of this terminology:

    Sons of LightBelial vs. Sons of DarknessThe Elect or Chosen OnesTeacher of Righteousness or JustnessAngels and Angelic visitationsThe New CovenantThe Holy Spirit and Walking in the Spirit vs. the reasoning and logic of the Rabbis.The Temple or Tabernacle and the Human bodyProphecy and spiritual giftsMeasurements of Heaven, Earth, and Elohim citing Length, Depth, Breadth, Width, and Height.The Knowers of Kingdom MysteriesJustice vs. InjusticeEvil vs. GoodThe Pit, She’ol, and the Shadow of DeathThe festival calendar of the Pharisees and Temple Priests vs. the festival calendar of the Priestly Zadokites.

    Zadokite lessons on these themes make up the body of Zadokite teaching traditions, which I believe are the traditions that Paul refers to in 1 Corinthians 11:2.

    Join us for this summary of the rise, fall, and rising again of the Sons of Tzadok through Melchizedek/Yeshua, Yehovah's King and Priest of the Heaven's City of Shalem, also called the Kingdom of Heaven (Genesis 14:18).

    What we know is that the Levitical Sadducees were not legally of the bloodline of Aaron to Eleazar to Phinchas to Tzadok. Rather, they were more likely of the line of Aaron’s son Ithamar, whose priestly line ended in the days of King Solomon, but they continued seeking priestly legitimacy going back to the days of the Hasmoneans. Consider that they held prominent political and religious appointments that were NOT the rightful and true House of Tzadok in the days of King David.

    When Stephen said, “Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute,” this appears to refer to the Hassidim (Pharisees) or religious loyalists belonging to the religious arm of the Hasmoneans in the years 140 – 50 BCE, which was precisely the time when the Priests of the House of Tzadok were being exiled, executed, and stripped of their ancient spiritual authority. This further validates the House of Tzadok as prophets because they themselves claimed ongoing divine revelation through the Holy Spirit in all their teachings.

    When Yeshua revived Lazarus from the dead on the fourth day, it seems that he legitimized the eternal authority of the Genesis 14:18 High Priest and King Melchizedek. With the resurrection of Lazarus (Elazar), it appears to be Yeshua’s declaration that he was Melchizedek who was reviving the Zadokite Priesthood originating with Melchizedek, which was then given to Aaron who passed down his authority to Elazar, to Phinehas, to Zadok, to John the Baptist and finally made complete in and through Yeshua. By believing in Yeshua, we inherit a position among the Sons of Tzadok in the exalted priestly line of Melchizedek through Yeshua, the King, and Priest of Shalem (Genesis 14:18). With Elazar’s resurrection on the Fourth Day, this looks like an allusion to the Malachi 4:2 (Hebrew: 3:20) prophecy of the Angel or Messenger of Yehovah - Melchizedek - who comes with healing in his wings as Tzadok ("Righteousness") on DAY 4, which is precisely what the Priests of Zadok believed.

    The story of the fourth-day resurrection of Elazar powerfully appears as a teaching allusion to the Kingdom of Heaven - Shalem, and the resurrection of the Great King – Melchizedek, who is King and Priest of that city spoken of in the Book of Revelation, a city called the New Jerusalem (Revelation 3:12 and 21:2), which is why the Zadok festival calendar was so important to the House of Tzadok (and should likewise be important for all of us too).

    Between the Hasmoneans and Yeshua, the Zadokites were considered as good as dead as they were replaced by a new political and religious system controlled by the Hassidim (Pharisees) and Tzadokim (Sadducees). In the meantime, the House of Tzadok lived out their Prophetic Priestly lives in the Qumran area, "outside the camp,” which is what is written in the Book of Hebrews 13:13-14.

    Join us for this concluding summary of the rise, fall, and rising again of the Sons of Tzadok through Melchizedek/Yeshua, King and Priest of Shalem (Genesis 14:18).

    This is Real Israel Talk Radio, Episode 141, and PART 27 in the teaching series about Yeshua's last Passover week chronology and the history of the House and Sons of Tzadok.

    Avi ben Mordechai here. Shalom! You are tuned into Real Israel Talk Radio. Today’s show is “Why I Exchanged My Christmas Tree for a Menorah,” a special edition 2023 teaching hosted by my wife Suzanne.

    Suzanne will share with you some of her thoughts about the tradition of Christmas and the Christmas Season. All of what Suzanne will speak about today is easily verified from documented history and so, it is really nothing new. I asked Suzanne to present her perspective growing up in South Africa with the annual family celebration of Christmas because, like many of you, it was something that she had to grow out of, leaving behind a lot of memories linked to the event. But she knew that she had to move forward with her spiritual walk in the New Covenant of Yeshua. You will hear more about this on today's program, along with what Christmas means and how, over time, crept into Christian culture and has remained so for a very long time.

    After listening to this special program, if you wish to hear more on various topics of interest, from time to time, Suzanne hosts an encouragement program for women called THE SWAG WAY – an acronym for Suffering Women Alive for God. If you wish to hear more from Suzanne, you can also send her a message on her Facebook Page, THE SWAG WAY.

    I’m Avi ben Mordechai, and Yah willing, I’ll be back next time to finish up my multipart teaching series about the Rise and Fall of the Zadokites, the Tzadok Calendar, and Yeshua’s Last Passover Week Chronology details along with a summary of those events that historically have influenced Judaism down to this very day. See you next time for the next podcast, Episode 141, and PART 27 on Yeshua's last Passover Week Chronology, and a bit of a closing history lesson about the historical rise and fall of the House of Tzadok.

    Yeshua (Jesus) was known by three titles:

    1. The Word made Flesh (John 1:14)
    2. Melchizedek, King of the Celestial Kingdom of Shalem (John 18:36)
    3. Melchizedek, Priest of the Kingdom of Shalem (Genesis 14:18)

    From Genesis 14:18 to Daniel 9:24 to Revelation 21:2-3, the message remains the same because Yeshua is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).

    With today's podcast, Episode 139, and Part 26 in this series about Yeshua and the House of Tzadok, we will learn more about the Qumran community of priests and what they understood concerning the coming New Covenant as it relates to Daniel 9:24 and Exodus 19:6. It is not just about maintaining an inheritance of integrity among the Sons of Tzadok. This is also about the Sons of Light who came to be called by other terms such as "Members of the Covenant," A Community of the Faithful," and "Associates of an Everlasting Society."

    Today, we will learn more about the Kingdom of Heaven (Matthew 4:17, meaning the Kingdom of Shalem), the priesthood "Crown" of Exodus 28:36-38, and the credit that we have as Sons of Tzadok through Melchizedek (Romans 4:5-6, 21-22; Hebrews 13:9-11).

    This 50-minute episode is jam-packed with lots of biblical references that will keep you busy in your biblical study of the History of the House of Tzadok.

    Within the priestly line of Tzadok, there were several well-known priests, according to Nehemiah 11:11, which included such personalities such as Jeremiah the Prophet (Jeremiah 1:1) and Ezra the Priest/Scribe (Ezra 7:1-5).

    Previously, I focused on the priestly line of Aaron and how it came to be established through his firstborn son, Eliezer, who passed on his elected authority to Pinchas, who then passed his authority on to Tzadok (1 Chronicles 24:3 and Nehemiah 12:4) as he was the chosen priest for the House of Solomon, the Son of David. Further downline, according to Luke 1, Zecharias was chosen by lot to offer incense in the House of Yehovah. But remember, only those of the House of Tzadok were permitted for the job according to 1 Chronicles 23:13 and Numbers 4:16, and Zecharias was called "righteous" and "blameless."

    Zecharias and Elisheva brought a son into the world who was named Yochanan or John. But why did the Angel Gabriel tell Zechariah to name his yet unborn child Yochanan or John? There appears to be a connection to the last known and legitimate high priest in the line of Aaron, dating to around 175 BCE. The priest was called in Greek Onias III, but according to the Scroll of Ben Sirach Chapter 50, Verse 1, his name in Hebrew was בֶּן יוֹחָנָן הַכֹּהֵן (“Yochanan the Priest”), corresponding to the abbreviated name "Honi."

    In naming the child Yochanan or John, it connected the earthly Zadokite priesthood of John the Baptist to the last known and legitimate Zadokite priesthood of Yochanan (Onias III) just before the whole Zadokite line was removed from their Temple service about 50 years before the birth of Yeshua. Through John the Immerser, the nearly broken Zadokite priesthood of Earth was given legitimacy to the Melchizedek/Zadokite line of Heaven, establishing an eternal connection to Melchizedek/Yeshua (Genesis 14:18) to Daniel 9:24.

    Today's episode continues our study of the well-known House of Tzadok (the "Zadokites") as it relates to the life of Yeshua, Hebrew Scripture, and the New Covenant.

    Recall from Hebrew Scripture a hereditary line that began with Abraham and then to Isaac, to Jacob. Then, through Leah, Jacob's wife, she conceived and gave birth to Levi, which means “attached” or “joined.” Through her son Levi, a son was born - Kohat. He later produced Amram. Amram added two sons, Moses and Aaron. These two were split into two unique branches, each with special functions.

    The branch of Aaron came to be established through his sons. They were Eliezer, Itamar, Nadav, and Avihu. These four were set apart to serve as Priests to El Elyon in the Tabernacle. Still, Scripture tells us that Aaron's sons Nadav and Avihu died as a punishment for their rebellion. Then, Aaron's son Itamar later produced sons, establishing the House of Ithamar. Still, due to more rebellion, that house of descendants was forever forbidden to serve in the priesthood, leaving only Aaron's firstborn son, Eliezer, who was chosen to carry on the hereditary line of the Aaronic priesthood. Later, Eliezer passed on his elected authority to Pinchas, who passed it down to a man named Tzadok. He became the chosen priest for the House of David and Solomon.

    Just before the birth of Yeshua, John (Yochanan), the Son of Zechariah and Elisheva (Luke 1:5), received the Mantle of Zadok authority. He transferred his authority over to Yeshua, son of Miriam and Yosef, but in a way that appears to be an "upline" transfer (kind of like a spiritual loop) which returns to its beginning through the Order of Melchizedek (Genesis 14:18), who was and continues as King Tzadok of the celestial city of Shalem. All who come into the New Covenant by receiving the testimony of Yeshua are then included into the chosen and elected priesthood status of the Order of Melchizedek, at least, according to Exodus 19:5-6, and are therefore called the "Sons of Tzadok" and Yehovah's "Sons of Light."

    Let's look into this historical line of Tzadok in today's study, Episode 137 and Part 24 in the Chronology of Yeshua's Last Passover Week.

    With today's episode, we will learn about the well-known House of Tzadok (the "Zadokites") from Hebrew Scripture. We will look at four specific aspects of their collective life as they wrote about it in the Dead Sea Scrolls. We will learn that

    The House of Tzadok was not associated with the so-called Community of the Essenes The House of Tzadok took Hebrew scripture at its face value and believed themselves to be the Elect or Chosen of Yehovah to teach and to judge all the families of Israel The House of Tzadok received divine revelation from the Angel of the Countenance ("Angel of the Face"); this is the One that Genesis 14:18 refers to as "Melchizedek"The House of Tzadok defined the lifeblood of their work within the context of priestly prophets and counterparts to the celestial works of Yehovah's angels in Heaven.

    Let us examine the biblical terminology often called “First Fruits” or “Bikkurim.” This terminology is often confused with another ceremony called the Omer Wave-Sheaf offering, more accurately referred to in biblical parlance as Reisheet Katzir – Harvest of the First Cutting of the Grain.

    "First Fruits" is about the scriptural festival of Shavuot or Pentecost. The timing of the festival was understood from Leviticus 23:15-16 and based on two different points of view.

    1. The House of the Pharisaic Separatists performed their wave sheaf offering of freshly cut barley on the 16th day of the first chodesh or month. The 16th came to be called Day 1 in the 50-day count of the Omer. Also, their counting of seven weeks of Sabbaths began during the Festival of Matza (Unleavened Bread). 2. The House of Tzadok performed their wave sheaf offering of freshly cut wheat on the 26th day of the first chodesh or month. The 26th came to be called Day 1 in the 50-day count of the Omer. Also, their counting of seven weeks of Sabbaths began at the end of the Festival of Matza (Unleavened Bread).

    These two conflicting counts are easily resolved in a study of the timeline of Yeshua's 3rd-day resurrection (Matthew 28:1, Mark 16:1-2, Luke 24:1, John 20:1) and 40th-day ascension (Acts 1:3).

    The chronology of both events is played out based on the following timelines:

    The 19th Day of the 1st Month ("Aviv" or "Nisan") after Yeshua’s Sabbath resurrection to the 28th Day of the 2nd month is 40 days (Acts 1:3) The 26th Day of the 1st Month ("Aviv" or "Nisan" = Day 1 of the Omer) to the 28th Day of the 2nd month is the 33rd Day of the Omer (Acts 1:9 - Lag B’Omer). The 2nd Day of the 2nd Month ("Iyar") to the 15th Day of the 3rd month (Shavuot or Pentecost) is the morrow after 7 Sabbaths (Leviticus 23:15-16).
