Our Heavenly Father has a kingdom.
In his kingdom he has an governmental administration this is known as the Melchizedek Priesthood.
In the Melchizedek priesthood you are all three of these things:
Yeshua is the head of our Heavenly Father’s kingdom:
- He is the (head) king.
- He’s the high priest.
- He has a kingdom.
- The Torah is the constitution of the kingdom
- and the Melchizedek priesthood/administration governs this kingdom.
Remember he’s the “King of KINGS” meaning he’s the head king, and we are all kings beneath him in his Melchizedek priesthood/administration
Yeshua runs the kingdom of Yahweh according to Yahweh’s Torah/Instruction. Yahweh’s Torah/Instruction is the will of Yahweh.
The name of the people whom Yahweh governs is named Israel.
Yeshua is the Father’s agent who administers the kingdom of Yahweh. He oversees the domain of Yahweh.
