This past Yom Kippur (6023 FC), we were reading about what happened to Ye'shua on that year's Yom Kippur when He was here (Chronological Gospels, page 151). Yom Kippur is when the courtroom in Heaven is open and legal proceedings take place. On that night it was ruled that Ye'shua was now the new and final High Priest in the order of Melchizedek! That night He was transfigured and He was seen in all His glory!
But as I was reading to everyone, I realized that I had never seen Mark 9:11 before! I asked the table of people, "what does it mean when Ye'shua said that Yohannan would "restore ALL things?" And Riley instantly saw it and said, "the High Priests would be changed, restoring YHVH's Plan A!" I instantly saw and of course! A ton of verses began to make sense for me. Check it out here....
YE'SHUA SAID THAT YOHANNAN WOULD RESTORE ALL THINGS
(the levitical Cohen Gadol would restore all things, by passing the baton to Ye'shua, who could truly RESTORE ALL THINGS HIS FATHER COMMANDED )
YE'SHUA EQUATES HIS MIKVAH BY YOCHANAN WITH 'FULFILLING RIGHTEOUSNESS'
(the two of them were fulfilling YHVH's plan)
YOCHANAN ACKNOWELDGES YE'SHUA IS THE ONE
(Ye'shua's Eternal Priesthood was BEFORE Yochanan)
YE'SHUA SAID YOCHANAN WAS THE GREATEST EVER BORN
(the last Levitical high priest to recognize the new High Priest, Ye'shua ha'Mashiach)
YOCHANAN SAID HE MUST DECREASE SO THAT YE'SHUA CAN INCREASE
(the levitical priesthood would decrease and the Melchizedek Priesthood would increase)
YHVH SWORE BY AN OATH TO HIMSELF THAT HIS SON WAS THE HIGH PRIEST IN THE MELCHIZEDEK ORDER
THE UNTIL CLAUSE THAT MAKES THIS CHANGE POSSIBLE
(When Shiloh came (Ye'shua) things changed! Starting with a new Royal Priesthood)
"Legally, there is only one Cohen Gadol (High Priest). Annas and Caiaphas were appointed by Rome, although neither of them met the qualifications for the position. Yochanan the son of Zecharyah, a cohen, was the divinely appointed High Priest who would announce the arrival of the Messiah." The Chronological Gospels, page 68.
Ye'shua said that Yohannan was the 'greatest ever born', because Yohannan would be the one to announce the change in High Priests! Yohannan would pass the baton to Ye'shua, per say. Yohannan knew that "Plan B" (the Levitical priesthood) needed to decrease so that YHVH's "Plan A" (the Royal Priesthood given to Ye'shua) would increase!
Yohannan restored 'all things' by acknowledging that the imposed Levitical order (Deut. 31:26) with it's extra schoolmaster law was over (Col 2:14) and that YHVH's original plan for Israel to be a 'nation of priests unto Him' (Ex. 19:6) with the light burden of His Covenant Law (Matthew 11:28-30) was RESTORED through the new High Priest, Ye'shua (1 Peter 2:9)!
This is AMAZING! PRAISE YHVH ELOHIM!
