The Priest Order of Melchizedek
The Order of Melchizedek refers to the Priest Order of Melchizedek Kings (Kings of Righteousness) This was the oldest monotheistic leadership that was at one time present in all the nations of the world. As the various nations began to rebel against the Lord th...ey revolted against the Melchizedek and appointed their own Kings. Under the authority of the appointed Melchi-Zadok(King of Righteousness) were the Zadokites who were simply the Priests of Righteousness. When the Prophet Moses fled to Midian,he was taught by the High Priest of Midian(Jethro)who was in reality a Midianite King in the Order of Melchizedek. Midian was in Medina. This is why another name for Medina is Yathrib meaning the place of Yathro(Jethro).
When Joseph was in Egypt he married Asnat daughter of the High Priest of On. Asnat's father was a Zadokite Priest and thus Joseph also became a priest in the Zadokite Order. Although the Pharaoh maintained supreme authority Joseph was able to rule Egypt as a MelchiZadok(King of Righteousness) Akhnaten was the Grandson of Joseph(Yuya) and took over Egypt and was both a Pharaoh and a King in the Order of Melchizadok. Acting in the divine decree of the Melchizadok Order Akhnaten attempted to bring Egypt under the rule of Monotheism. Moses was raised in the Order of Akhnaten as an Egyptian Prince he was planted in the Pharaoh's palace with the hope of becoming a Pharaoh in the Order of Melchizadok. When Moses fled Egypt he went into exile under the protection of the King of Midian Jethro who as mentioned earlier was a king in the Order of Melchizadok.
Moses initially planned to return to Egypt with the intent of recruiting the Israelite slaves under his authority in order to revolt against the Pharaoh and take over Egypt by reclaiming the throne of Akhnaten as a Pharoah in the Order of M...alchiZadok. However under the command of the Lord through the divinely decreed guidance of Jethro he decided to bring the Israelites out of Egypt and establish a new independent kingdom under the authority of his rule as a Melchizadok King of Israel. When Jethro heard that Moses was successful in establishing an Israelite Kingdom in the Order of Melchizadok he brought Moses' two sons out of hiding in order that all of Israel would see them as the inheritors of the Melchi-Zadok and Zadokite Priesthoods: Israel was established under the authority of a three priesthood system:
1. The Priest Kings who ruled in the Order of Melchizadok. These were to be the descendants of Moses' son Eliezar from this line came both David and Jesus.
2. The Zadokites being the Priests of Righteousness are descended from Moses son Gershom. The Zadokites taught the people the laws of righteousness.
3. The Kes Priesthood which were the Temple monks and ritual priests who were the descendants Aaron's sons Eliezar who was in charge of all of the Levites.
The Lion was not the symbol of Judah and Judah was not the Kingship.The Lion was one of the symbols of Levi. This is why in Hebrew one of the ways of saying Lion is Lavi. The Judahites were praisers and singers who surrounded the king. In t...his regard the Kings
who were descended from Moses were always associated with the Judah. This is why the Book of Samuel states that :
" King David taught the Judahites the SONG of the Bow as written in the Book of Yashar(SONGS)." The Lemba maintain the original symbol of Judah which was the trumpet blowers meaning the praisers.This manifested into the Elephant of Judah. The Judahites were only associated with the Lion through their attachment to the Levitical Priest Kings. The Lemba priesthood which which tested positive for the Kohen DNA are called Buba which means Judah. The Buba were the ruling leaders of the Lemba and have a strong tradition associating them with Solomon who they call Seremane.However they are also priests and test positive for Kohen Levitical DNA. The Levitical Priests and Priest-Kings were always surrounded by multitudes of Judahites who continuously praised the Lord through Singing and reciting of hymns and praises.
Through this association the King-Priests(Melchi-Zadok) and the Priests(Zadokites) who descended from Levi were referred to as Judah even though they were not descendants of Judah. The Holy Qaran verifies the fact that Jesus was a descendant of the Family of Amran. Amran being the Father of Moses and Aaron. Isn't it strange that the Bible makes no mentioning of any priestly inheritance for the descendants of Moses. Moses inherited the Kingship and the Priests of Righteousness while Aaron was given the ritual Temple priesthood which served as monks.
