Hebrews Part 1


1 of 2

We are beginning another book today, the book of Hebrews, which was written to the people of Israel, as remember the Lord Himself used Paul here when He struck Saul, Paul’s name then, then the Lord changing it to Paul, meaning small, and then the Lord used to him to teach:

Acts 9:12 “And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.”
Acts 9:13 “Then Ananias answered, “Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to Thy saints at Jerusalem:”
Acts 9:14 “And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on Thy name.”
Acts 9:15 “But the Lord said unto him, “Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto Me, to bear My name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:”
Acts 9:16 “For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for My name’s sake.”
Gentiles (Strong’s 1484) a race (as of the same habit), i.e. a tribe; specific a foreign (non-Jewish) one (usually by implication pagan); Gentile, heathen, nation, people.

After Paul then being blinded in the way on the way to persecute the newly founded church in Damascus Syria on the street called Straight, as we all are touched by dear God and HE always sets all of us straight, on the right path, His Word, here. The Lord giving Ananias, his servant, the vision to lay hands on Paul so the Lord could then heal Paul’s blinded eyes. Then the Lord giving Paul eyes to see, his physical eyes, as well as his spiritual eyes were then healed. Paul then a believer, whom here through Ananias, we see Paul that chosen vessel of the Lord’s. Not that Paul went to some church meeting, or some missionaries knocked on his door and read their church’s “Book of”, no way! But the Lord, the Word of God His very name as in Revelation 19:13, struck down Paul, so then HE could heal Him. Sending Paul on a three fold mission to the Gentiles, the other nations than Israel, so every nationality, race, ethnic group, and so on, all peoples, then their election, or their kings and queens, as well as the nation of Israel. So then this book Hebrews was addressed specifically to the people of Israel, all twelve tribes, as today both the house of Judah and the house of Israel are not together. Many of Judah are living along with those that claim to be Jews, or of Judah as here:

Revelation 2:8 “And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; ‘These things saith the First and the Last, Which was dead, and is alive;”
Revelation 2:9 “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty (but thou art rich), and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”
Revelation 2:10 “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.”
Revelation 2:11 “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.’”
tribulation (Strong’s 2346) to crowd, afflict, trouble; (akin to the base of Strong’s 5147) a rut or worn track, path.
Jews (Strong’s 2453) Judean, or resident of Judea; i.e. belonging to Jehudah; (from Strong’s 2448) Judah, a part of (or place in) Palestine; (Strong’s Hebrew 3063) celebrated; Jehovah (or Judah), the name of five Israelites, or the tribe descended from the first, and of its territory.

This church here the church of Smyrna, not by the name today, but by what they teach. They recognize and teach who those that claim they are Jews, which by definition is either a resident of the land of Judea, or today the nation Israel, OR a person by blood who is from the tribe of Judah. These Kenites, remember the serpent’s seed, or child, Cain, who was produced in Genesis 3:15, and the serpent, Satan, as in Revelation 12:7 and Revelation 20:2, is their father, then their later generations called Kenites, or the sons of Cain. That people, that specific group are the ones that give the real people that are Jews, a very bad name, up to this day, as these Kenites claim to be Jews, but are really Satan’s children. Jesus is approving that those churches or those teachers of the Word of God, or the Bible, are to be identified, we are to know them, but God will take care of them at the end at the eternity as only HE can know who is from which people, for many people are mixed up in nationality, or came from many different backgrounds. Remember the other part of the people of the entire nation of Israel, or the house of Israel, they live separately to this day from Judah. Yes, there is some real people of Judah, or Jews, as well as Kenites, scattered all over the world, some here in the United States. The majority of the Israelites, are in Europe, then migrated to North America, many making up this nation. God can do anything with any person, only He is Judge, and even a son of Cain if he loves the Lord, you think the Lord will refuse that person. No way, as God is fair to all peoples. So we are only identifying here, to have an understanding. Then Paul here is given the credential by Peter, the apostle, or one sent forth by the Lord, and discipline, meaning someone that really disciplined himself in God’s Word here:

II Peter 3:15 “And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also, according to the wisdom given unto him, hath written unto you;”
II Peter 3:16 “As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other Scriptures, unto their own destruction.”

Peter is saying our brother, meaning our fellow Israelite, not neighbor, meaning someone of another people. Then Peter putting his stamp, which God is working through Peter so the stamp of the LORD Himself, to listen to his epistles, or letters, as God used Paul to write most of the New Testament. Even Peter is saying these are hard to be understood, about the three earth ages, and so forth, that somebody that did not have the background as the people of Israel had available of the Word of God, it would be difficult for them or they would wrestle with the understanding. Paul was also of the tribe of Benjamin:

Philippians 3:5 “Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;”

Paul then by blood from one of the thirteen tribes of the nation of Israel, or the tribe of Benjamin. He knew God’s Word, inside and out, a Pharisee. He was of that religion, or that we would say denomination today, as the Pharisees believed in the afterlife, and the Sadducees did not. That was their division. Then here:

Acts 22:1 “Men, brethren, and fathers, hear ye my defence which I make now unto you.”
Acts 22:2 “(And when they heard that he spake in the Hebrew tongue to them, they kept the more silence: and he saith,)”
Acts 22:3 “I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as ye all are this day.”

Paul was also a student of God’s Word, learned right at the feet of, or under the direction of Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, or in today’s language had a Ph.D. in the Word of God! So what better credential is there in that. Then here:

Acts 5:34 “Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space;”
Acts 5:35 “And said unto them, “Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men.”
Acts 5:36 “For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought.”
Acts 5:37 “After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed.”
Acts 5:38 “And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought:”
Acts 5:39 “But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.”

This man Gamaliel was a man that the people looked up to for he followed God’s Word, using him in controversy here. He is reasoning with these people trying to kill the Word of God, using wisdom that if they say who they are, they actions will fail if they are liars, just like Theudas, a false prophet, as his following soon ended. He reasoned with these sons of Cain who were trying to get rid of the disciples God used, as God was doing a very good work here and Satan did not like it! God will use anyone HE wants to get His work done. The point this man was a well respected leader of the religious community, someone Paul was taught directly under. Then here let’s get into what the word “Hebrew” exactly means using the Word:

Genesis 14:13 “And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner; and these were confederate with Abram.”
Hebrew (Strong’s 5680 “Ibree”) or descendents of Eber; Hebrew (-ess, woman, i.e. Hebrewess)
Eber (Strong’s 5677) the name of two patriarchs and four Israelites; (from Strong’s 5676) a region across; on the opposite side of Jordan; usually meaning the east; (from Strong’s 5674) to cross over; transition; to cover

The word Hebrew or “Ibree”, meaning the descendants of Eber. Eber then means the people that crossed over the Jordan River, then over the Euphrates and went into Babylon, or confusion the meaning of it. The first time the word Hebrew is mentioned, Abram, meaning high father, who later God changed his name to Abraham, meaning father of many nations in:

Genesis 17:4 “As for Me, behold, My covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.”
Genesis 17:5 “Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.”

Let’s get into this now that we have a background and really enjoy:

Hebrews 1:1 “GOD, Who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets.”
Hebrews (Strong’s 1445) a Hebroean (i.e. Hebrew) or Jew; (from Strong’s 1443) Eber, a patriarch, or from (Strong’s 5677) the name of two patriarchs and four Israelites; (from Strong’s 5676) a region across; on the opposite side of Jordan; usually meaning the east; (from Strong’s 5674) to cross over; transition; to cover
sundry (Strong’s 4181) in many portions, i.e. variously as to time and agency (piecemeal); at sundry times.
divers manners (Strong’s 4187) in many ways, i.e. variously as to method or form; in divers manners.

The word Hebrews in the Greek here meaning a person who was an Israelite, or a Hebrew, or one that spoke the Hebrew language. We just read it, but once again, Eber, their patriarch or forefather, meant the one that crossed over the Jordan river. That nation or that group of people. Then moving along GOD Who at sundry times, or in many portion and in divers manners, meaning in many ways commanded our forefathers or our ancestors, as in the Hebrew language there is no word for “father” so they use the fathers in place of ancestors or forefathers. Then going on:

Hebrews 1:2 “Hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, Whom He hath appointed Heir of all things, by Whom also He made the worlds:’
Heir (Strong’s 2818) (in its original sense of partitioning, i.e. getting by apportionment); a share by lot, i.e. an inheritor; a possessor; (from Strong’s 2819) (through the idea of using bits of wood, for the purpose); a die (for drawing chances); a portion (as if so secured); an acquisition (especially a patrimony, or property inherited by one’s father or ancestors), and (from Strong’s base of 3551 in its original sense of partitioning, i.e. getting by apportionment) (to parcel out, especially food or grazing to animals); law (through the idea of prescriptive usage), regulation, specific (of Moses including the volume; also of the Gospel); a principle, law.
worlds (Strong’s 165) an age; perpetuity, or lasting for a long time, or not ceasing (also past); the world; specific (Jewish) a Messianic period (both present or future).

The Lord God is first addressed in Hebrews 1:1 and then His Son, Jesus Christ, mentioned next. Jesus is the Heir, meaning the One that is the Inheritor, and remember the word at the base means through the idea of bits of wood, or even the grazing land for animals, or their food. That is what Jesus is as:

Revelation 19:13 “And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God.”
Jesus is the Word of God, that’s His Name! So then on to the next part, GOD created the worlds, meaning the ages, giving us:

II Peter 3:8 “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the LORD as a thousand years, and a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”
II Peter 3:9 “The LORD is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
II Peter 3:10 “But the day of the LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”
elements (Strong’s 4747) something orderly in arrangement, i.e. a serial (basal or used for teaching beginners, fundamental, initial) constituent or one who authorizes to act as an agent, initial); rudiment or beginning, unformed or developed; (from base of Strong’s 4748) to march in (military) rank (keep step), i.e. to conform to virtue and piety, walk (orderly).
melt (Strong’s 3089) to loosen, break up, destroy, dissolve, loose, melt, put off.

One day is as one thousand with the LORD God, so that’s why at the Lord’s Day, the next age, this flesh age ends and then the Lord’s Day, or the one thousand years in which all souls that do not make it in the flesh and in this final generation, end up worshipping Satan, they all will have a chance to be taught discipline. That’s it, plain and simple, as everyone, as in Jeremiah 31:33, we all have total recall of the Word of God. But Satan during that Lord’s Day will be able to use things like boredom, and laziness as ways to pulls many away from the discipline in serving God and focusing on His Word, as we all are subject to here in the flesh. The way God does this then the elements, or the rudiments of the earth, anything not from God will melt off or away, or anything not marching or keeping in step with what is natural and of God, from His Word, no perversion from Satan twisting a verse here or there as he does through people in churches and in religion. That’s why it will be a huge surprise for the world, especially the many so-called “Christians” that Jesus will be as a thief in the night, for they will think that it He has returned and they worshipped Him, but in reality it is Satan disguised in II Corinthians 11:14-15 as Jesus. God did all of these getting rid of that first earth age as we know in Jeremiah Chapter 4:

Jeremiah 4:1 “If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the LORD, return unto Me: and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of My sight, “then shalt thou not remove.”
Jeremiah 4:22 “For My people is foolish, they have not known Me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.”
Jeremiah 4:23 “I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had not light.”
Jeremiah 4:24 “O beheld the earth, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.”
Jeremiah 4:25 “I beheld, and lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.”
Jeremiah 4:26 “I beheld, and lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by His fierce anger.”
Jeremiah 4:27 “For thus hath the LORD said, “The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.”
Jeremiah 4:28 “For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.”
Jeremiah 4:29 “For the whole city shall flee for the noise of the horsemen and bowmen; they shall go into thickets, and climb upon the rocks: every city shall be forsaken, and not a man dwell therein.”
Jeremiah 4:30 “And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest the with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.”
Jeremiah 4:31 “For I have heard a voice as a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion, that bewaileth herself, that spreadeth her hands, saying, ‘Woe is me now! For my soul is wearied because of murderers.’”
void (Strong’s 922) (meaning to be empty) a vacuity, i.e. an indistinguishable ruin; emptiness, void.
The LORD instead of destroying those one third of God’s people in Revelation 12:4 that worshipped Satan and were deceived by him in the first earth age, God rather than that because He loves His children. Can you imagine how difficult that would be for Him to do that? Rather than that, God did not make a full end, or totally blot them out of existence, or fully destroyed His children, God destroyed the age, period. This is not the flood of Noah as here:

Genesis 8:11 “And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.”

There was an olive tree mature enough to have a leaf plucked off it on dry land during that time the water covered the earth in:

Genesis 7:12 “And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.”

There would not have been enough time for the olive tree to be at the stage in its life to have produced this leaf, if all life was destroyed on the earth. So then as here:

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 waters.”
was (Strong’s 1961) to exist, i.e. be or become, come to pass (always emphatic or definite, and not a mere copula or linking verb, or auxiliary
void (Strong’s 922) (meaning to be empty) a vacuity, i.e. an indistinguishable ruin; emptiness, void.

Genesis 1:1 reads that God created the heaven and the earth period. At one time billions of years ago we know in modern science today, they call the “big bang” but at that time we cannot even measure. Then later on, the earth not “was” as it is mistranslated, but rather the earth “became” without form and void, meaning a indistinguishable ruin, an empty piece of area you could not even identify it. That’s not how God does things with no purpose, no way! That is why we have to go back to the original language here, read for ourselves as “watchmen” or “watchwomen”, as remember the enemy works through the Word of God as here:

I Chronicles 2:55 “And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab.”
Kenites (Strong’s 7017) A Kenite or member of the tribe of Kajin; (paternal ancestor from Strong’s 7014) Kajin, the name of the first child, an Oriental tribe; Cain; (same as Strong’s 7013) a lance (as striking fast); spear; (from Strong’s 6969 in the sense of fixity) to strike a musical note, i.e. chant or wail (at a funeral), lament.

Those sons of Cain, or the Kenites, that say they are Jews or from the tribe of Judah, but really are Satan’s descendants by blood, they have mixed in so much with Judah, as Judah was so lazy as a people. They used them as their scribes, the ones that were supposed to keep the books, or the Word of God, and this is why so much mistranslation happens. To this day, it still goes on, so be careful on some of these newer translations, or translations of translations. That is our job, to keep it straight so we can know what God is saying to us in His Word. Don’t you think it’s important and critical living in today’s end times when Satan will make his short appearance before Jesus, so that we are not deceived by him! He is just that good at deception if the entire world will be under his feet worshipping him, right? Think about. Moving along here:

Hebrews 1:3 “Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His image, and upholding all things by the world of His power, then He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;”
express (Strong’s 5481) a graver (the tool or the person), i.e. engraving (“character”) the figure stamped, i.e. an exact copy or representation), express image; (from Strong’s 5482) a stake, i.e. a palisade or rampart (military mound for circumvallation in a siege); trench; (to sharpen to a point akin to Strong’s 1125 through the idea of scratching); to “grave”, especially to write; figurative to describe, write.

Jesus holds that brightness of God’s glory that we even see a glimmer of that where Moses would wear a veil over his face when going out to the people teaching them and leading them in God’s Word, for Moses was at the throne of God and ministering to Him. Jesus then we see here if you have a problem with understanding the difference of God and Jesus, or the Roles of the Son and of the Father. Jesus is the express image, or an exact copy of God period. The Lord came as Son of man, meaning He came as a Man, in the flesh, as Emmanuel, His very name means God with us:

Matthew 1:23 “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”

Which is quoting from here in the Old Testament:

Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the LORD Himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
Immanuel (Strong’s 6005) with us (is) God; (from Strong’s 6006) to load, i.e. impose a burden, be borne, (heavy) burden, lade, load, put; and (from Strong’s 3050) Jah, the sacred name: the Lord, most vehement.

Immanuel means God is with us. Jesus then came here living as a Man in the flesh so we could see that He Himself would not ask anyone of us to come down be born innocent in our mother’s wombs showing us the Way, the Word of God, and HE did it perfectly!

Hebrews 2:14 “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;”

Jesus then did the same thing, remember God with us, and through His death, all of us, or whomsoever, it states here:

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:17 “For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.”

God loved us all so much that He did not blot out the children that worshipped Satan, that one third in Revelation 12:4, or did not make a full end of them. Rather He created this earth age, so that each soul then would have an opportunity for salvation through Him, the Lord Jesus Christ, wanting all of us not to perish, and not to condemn us, but to give each one of us the chance to overcome Satan and not worship him. Then here God put Jesus on His right hand, the One with the power or the authority, here:

Psalms 110:1 “(A Psalm of David.) The LORD said unto my Lord, “Sit Thou at My right hand, Until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool.”
Psalms 110:2 “The LORD shall send the rod of Thy strength out of Zion: Rule Thou in the midst of Thine enemies.”
Psalms 110:3 “Thy People shall be willing in the day of Thy power, In the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: Thou hast the dew of Thy youth.”
Psalms 110:4 “The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever After the order of Melchizedek.”
Melchizedek (Strong’s 4442) king of right; Malki-Tsedek; (from Strong’s 4428) a king; (from Strong’s 4427) to reign; to ascend the throne; to induct into royalty, to take counsel, and (from Strong’s 6664) the right; equity; prosperity; justice, righteous. (from Strong’s 6663) to be right (in a moral or forensic, legal sense), cleanse, clear self, do just or righteous.

This Psalms of David, whose family in Luke 3 Jesus did come in the flesh. Then the LORD God put Jesus on His throne until we, the election, those of us that know Satan who will come first and then Jesus as in Revelation 11:15 at the seventh trumpet, as Satan’s number is six, six and six, as in Revelation 13:18. When that election, including the two servants in Revelation Chapter 11 will be used by God to speak through them when they are delivered up to Satan’s councils and synagogues as we just read in Revelation 2, there in Revelation 2:10 the Lord saying Satan will only be able to hold each person up to ten days each. Nothing to fear as in Luke 10:17-20 we have the authority in the name of Jesus Christ against our enemies, including Satan, with God we have His power! There is nothing to fear with God on our side, is there? Jesus will rule with a rod of iron at His return. NO more fake religions and churches, and governments that control religion. One kingdom and one government under the Lord Jesus Christ eternally will be set up here on earth! We don’t fly away or get “raptured” anywhere, for as in Zechariah 14:4 Jesus will stand at the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem setting up that eternal kingdom here on earth. Thy People, meaning the natural seed or the people of Israel in Which the Lord did come through as Son of Man in the flesh as in Luke 3 His genealogy. God has never nor will He ever lose any power or beauty, but just like He was in the beginning, for there is nothing new with God, as we can only count on the Lord Which is His Word! So just like when the LORD God laid out this flesh age, it will be the same Word of God. You are never wasting time when you read the Bible, it’s all good and eternal! Then the LORD Jehovah is saying that HE has sworn, meaning I am swearing on My Word, no other higher oath can God make to us all! HE will never repent, or take back any of the Word of God, or His promise to us all that believe on Him! Then Jesus is that High Priest forever, period that’s it that’s how it’s going to be, plain and simple! Jesus then is that High Priest forever. The order of Melchizedek, meaning the King of Righteousness as He is Right and He is Just and He is Faithful and He is Holy and He is Good. Everything Good and Right, that’s God! Why wouldn’t we want to go to the Source, Himself, Which is His Word, and crack that thing open? It makes sense, right? You think this word “Melchizedek” is something new in God’s Word and Jesus Name never mentioned until the New Testament came along? Let’s go right back to Genesis, yes, Genesis and see what it says:

Genesis 14:18 “(And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and He was the priest of the MOST HIGH GOD.”
Genesis 14:19 “And he blessed him, and said, “Blessed be Abram of the MOST HIGH GOD, possessor of heaven and earth:”
Genesis 14:20 “And blessed be the MOST HIGH GOD, Which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand.” And he gave him tithes of all.)”
Melchizedek (Strong’s 4442) king of right; Malki-Tsedek; (from Strong’s 4428) a king; (from Strong’s 4427) to reign; to ascend the throne; to induct into royalty, to take counsel, and (from Strong’s 6664) the right; equity; prosperity; justice, righteous. (from Strong’s 6663) to be right (in a moral or forensic, legal sense), cleanse, clear self, do just or righteous.
Salem (Strong’s 8004) peaceful; Shalem; (the same as Strong’s 8005) requital or to reward or avenge, or recompense, meaning to repay or reward or compensate.

The King of Righteousness or Melchizedek,, and He is the King of Salem, meaning peace as well as to reward, whether good or bad. We bring out our payment or our reward, both good or bad both here on earth and when we go to Heavenly Father when we pass away. That here Abram, we just read meaning high father, became the father of many nations. Jesus just think came directly to Abram and HE is bringing forth the bread and wine, representing as the Lord showed us the wine of His blood, and the bread of His body, that HE would put that flesh Body on so that every one of us believers could have the opportunity for eternal life, for none of us could do this lifetime perfectly, only Jesus Who is Melchizedek, King of Righteousness. Abram, later God named Abraham, tithed, or gave the Lord one tenth of his wealth, blessing the Lord doing it willingly, not forced by some church system to pay this tithe, but willingly blessing the Lord as he so much loves Him! Just think Heavenly Father is the MOST HIGH GOD meaning over all these church systems, all these religions, that are here on earth over all these “gods” ruling the world, keeping the sun, moon, the stars all the planets, time itself, everything in order, making sure our bodies continue on as they do with our metabolism, and so on and so on all of His creation! Never showing off about it, but just doing it for the love that HE has for all of us and giving us the Word of God so that we have that instruction Book so we all have the chance to make it in the flesh. Many will not make it in this flesh age, but we then will have the next age, the Lord’s Day, to really whip the many into shape using God’s Word as that time then will be very, very critical, when souls could be fully destroyed! We have to see the heaviness of what this all means to know God’s Word, that to put that gospel armor on, so that we are not deceived by Satan. Otherwise, you have to wait one thousand years in which you are retested, for this is not a second chance. There is no chance on this earth right now today for so many that have never been taught God’s Word with understanding. Moving along here:

Hebrews 1:4 “Being made so much better than the angels, as He hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.”
Hebrews 1:5 “For unto which of the angels said He at any time, “Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten Thee”? And again, “I will be to Him a Father, and He shall be to Me a Son?”

Jesus then made better than the angels, as remember we just read it, a exact Copy of the Lord. Just like here:

Genesis 1:26 “And God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: 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 creepeth upon the earth.”
Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.”

God then making Jesus the exact Image of God in the flesh Man of Jesus Christ, as here God said when He made all of us flesh people, let Us, “upper case”, meaning God and the angels. As God would not ask anyone of us to live our lives perfectly that He did it perfectly through His Son, Jesus Christ! God is fair in all things. This is a quotation here in Hebrews 1:5, Paul quoting from:

Psalms 2:7 “I will declare the decree: The LORD hath said unto Me, “Thou art My Son; This day have I begotten Thee.”

And also here:

Acts 13:16 “Then Paul stood up, and beckoning with his hand, said, “Men of Israel, and ye that fear God, give audience.”
Acts 13:33 “God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that HE hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, ‘Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten Thee.’”

When it says “it is written” means God teaching us hey go back in My Word and see where I already told you these things. You will get more information of what was said there. Then moving on here:

Hebrews 1:6 “And again, when He bringeth in the Firstbegotten into the world, He saith, “And let all the angels of God worship Him.”

Then here a quotation of:

Deuteronomy 32:43 “Rejoice, O ye nations, with His people: For He will render vengeance to His adversaries, And will be merciful unto His land, and to His people.”

This really states in the Hebrew: “Rejoice, ye nations, with His heavens, together with Him, and let all the angels of God worship Him. Rejoice, ye nations, with His people.” This verse remember in Revelation Chapter 15, the Song of Moses is sung by all the election who overcome in the flesh with harps singing this Song of Moses of Deuteronomy 32. This is the very last verse! Another clue to us here. In order to do that they have to not worship Satan while living in the flesh, so stick with His Word as I try to do daily and we can all do this! Moving along:

Hebrews 1:7 “And of the angels HE saith, “Who maketh His angels spirits, and His ministers a flame of fire.”
Hebrews 1:8 “But unto the Son He saith, “Thy throne, O God is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of Thy kingdom.”

Why would God do this?

Hebrews 12:29 “For our God is a consuming fire.”

Once we know His Word we cannot turn off that Light that Truth that flows into our minds so easily and brings us joy! We can’t shut it off if wanted to! Of course we would not! But then the ministers, the servants that are supposed to be warning and teaching the people this Word of God. Not as show-offs or to show how intelligent, or how smart they are, but rather actually teach, breaking the Word down, bit by bit, so we can pick out the meaning and learn and understand. That’s their roles, not to put on the robe of a priest, sit in some booth in a church, look “holy” or “religious” and listen to people’s confessions! God forbid, as all of us as believers must go directly to God, talk with Him, be real with Him for HE already knows what’s up with you and me and anyone that prays to Him! Then going on here:

Psalms 2:9 “Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”’

The Word of God breaks down on our flesh and it’s right to the core. Especially if you have gone so far from Him, you are embarrassed to acknowledge the fact He is there or even exists, once we do, as we all feel like this at times, His Word, when the many who do not even recognize history. That Jesus did come to this earth, that’s why the time then changed, and HE turned it rightside up, you think that’s an accident, how now we count forward instead of backwards, as the years descend to His birth, then ascend after His birth, or B.C. and A.D. in which science takes out God’s name by calling time C.E. or B.C.E., Common Era or Before Common Era, not recognizing a historical event of Jesus’ birth! What idiots, but let the Lord Judge, as His rod of iron will break anyone not standing with Him at His return, like a clay pot, as all of our flesh bodies will change at His return. As here:

Zechariah 14:1 "Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.”
Zechariah 14:12 “And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.”

The subject here is the Lord’s return, or the second advent. Then the plague, which we bring on ourselves remember so don’t blame this on the LORD! The majority of this final generation that will have thought that Satan is the devil, and worship him thinking he is Jesus, God or their religious leader they have faith in, will be amazed when their flesh melts away, as remember this is I Corinthians 15:52 here, the gory details included the eyeballs melting in their sockets and the tongues melting in their mouths. Even more deeply here, flesh melts off or anything that Satan, God’s creation, who will be claiming that he is God, a man, not GOD! Satan’s man-made lies and deception will all melt off, nothing he says to you will be permanent or eternal, and also meaning they that fall for the lies have no eyes to see and no tongues to confess God’s Word, for they have been blinded of the truth going in the opposite direction to Satan. We that believe in the Word of God know this transition where all flesh instantly changes, so we won’t be freaked out, but the majority will be amazed by this and very, very scared, for they don’t know what just happened to them, UNTIL Jesus stands right before them and they will rather want to die or hide in the rocks than face the Living God here:
Revelation 6:15 “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;”
Revelation 6:16 “And said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him That sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:”
Revelation 6:17 “For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”

Then here all walks of life, the political leaders, politicians, kings, queens, presidents, people in jail, and people free, all types, who will have worshipped Satan would rather hide in the rocks, and here mountains is symbolic of nations, as remember says in:

Matthew 21:19 “And when He saw a fig tree in the way, HE came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, “Let no fruit grow on the henceforward for ever.” And presently the fig tree withered away.”
Matthew 21:20 “And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, “How soon is the fig tree withered away!”
Matthew 21:21 “Jesus answered and said unto them, “Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, ‘Be thou removed, and be thou cast in to the sea; it shall be done.”

Remember we are living in this final generation of the fig tree which began May 1948 when Israel became a nation as in Jeremiah Chapter 24 foretold us many of years ago when both the house of Judah, the Jews, alongside with the people of Cain, or the serpent’s seed, his offspring, or Cain and the Kenites. Then Jesus saying here that plant, the Lord not wasting time using this example for our warning telling us the time period will be the last days, guess what we live then. Let’s listen up! Then because this tree, as we are all trees, remember when Jesus healed the blind man he saw people as trees walking, God’s Word teaching us again the symbolism. It’s all there, you just have to dig it out, work at it like gold pieces, or hidden manna of God’s Word. Then Jesus says don’t let that tree get older and then that generation died off, meaning Satan came, the first tribulation, then Jesus came after the devil, the second tribulation, many died a spiritual death. Jesus then says hey folks, it does not have to be this way! You can go out there teach the people, warn them about this in My Word of God, and let them know. We then who have that faith, not by our own power, but by His power, can move a mountain, meaning a nation, teaching them, we have to be that strong and confident in His Word! Not believe a little bit, but not that, all of it! Not then go back to our old ways of religion and what our “church” tells us to believe, not a chance! But rather, the pure truth, the river of water that comes out of the Lord’s mouth, that’s what we want to put in our minds. Not what I say, or any other teacher, prophet, pastor, rabbi, or person, but HE, Himself, His Word of God, what that states! Then when all those people who will have worshipped Satan see that the Lord actually did NOT come to this earth first, but His enemy, Satan, and they worshipped Him! They would rather die than face the Living God. Then God asks in Revelation 6:17, who will be able to stand? You and I will for we will not bow a knee to Satan, but stand up for what this Word of God states, waiting for our Lord Who comes after as the Word states. Then let’s go here:
