    Teaching of Holiness is Reserved Only for the Zadok Priesthood

    Teaching Of Holiness Is Reserved ForThe Zadok Priesthood

    Speaking to the Zadok priesthood...23 “And they shall teach My people the difference between the holy and the unholy, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean (Ezekiel 44:23 NKJV)
    This entire chapter speaks of the difference between those who are faithful representatives of God's will versus those who are not. In this chapter, God defines those who are not faithful and those who are and what their role will be. About the unfaithful, here is His indictment:
    10 “And the Levites who went far from Me, when Israel went astray, who strayed away from Me after their idols, they shall bear their iniquity. 11 Yet they shall be ministers in My sanctuary, as gatekeepers of the house and ministers of the house; they shall slay the burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before them to minister to them. 12 Because they ministered to them before their idols and caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity, therefore I have raised My hand in an oath against them,” says the Lord God, “that they shall bear their iniquity. 13 And they shall not come near Me to minister to Me as priest, nor come near any of My holy things, nor into the Most Holy Place; but they shall bear their shame and their abominations which they have committed. 14 NEVERTHELESS I WILL MAKE THEM KEEP CHARGE OF THE TEMPLE, FOR ALL ITS WORK, AND FOR ALL THAT HAS TO BE DONE IN IT.
    (Ezekiel 44:10-14 NKJV)
    These will not be allowed to draw near to the Lord yet they WILL be allowed to minister. There ministry is limited to the "outer court" where the sin offerings are being made. None of these "servants" will be allowed into the Holy Place because that is the place where God is being ministered to.

    Notice how distinguishes those of the sons of Zadok:
    15 “But the priests, the Levites, the sons of Zadok, who kept charge of My sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from Me, they shall come near Me to minister to Me; and they shall stand before Me to offer to Me the fat and the blood,” says the Lord God. 16 “They shall enter My sanctuary, and they shall come near My table to minister to Me, and they shall keep My charge.
    (Ezekiel 44:15-16 NKJV)

    23 “And THEY SHALL TEACH MY PEOPLE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE HOLY AND THE UNHOLY, AND CAUSE THEM TO DISCERN BETWEEN THE UNCLEAN AND THE CLEAN. 24 In controversy they shall stand as judges, and judge it according to My judgments. They shall keep My laws and My statutes in all My appointed meetings, and they shall hallow My Sabbaths

    (Ezekiel 44:23-24 NKJV)
    Notice verse 23. Only the sons of Zadok will be able to teach holiness and cause those they teach to be able to discern between what God considers clean or unclean. This is the difference between those who are faithful in all that God is commanding them to do and those who are not. The EVIDENCE of whether one has been faithful or not will not be shown in that they are ministering to others but rather in WHAT they are ministering. Only those who walk faithfully according to the Spirit of God will be able to draw near to the heart of the Father and know what He desires. The others cannot draw any nearer than they already have. Because they were not faithful to hear and obey the voice of the Spirit of God, God doesn't take their ministry away from them but will allow them to continue has before with one notable exception, they cannot know nor teach what is to God, holy in His sight nor can they give to others the ability to discern between what is clean or unclean according to God's standards.

    My question to you is simple. According to what you read in these passages, is YOUR church leader teaching and preaching on HOLINESS to the Lord? Or are your leaders teaching about everything else. Pay close attention. If your church provides access online to their messages, perhaps you should go back and review. If your pastor or church leaders are not preaching and teaching about Holiness to the Lord, then you must ask yourself, why are you still there? Did you not know that without holiness, no one will see God? If you cannot see God, you will not enter into heaven because this is where the throne of God is and the promise of Jesus for all who faithfully obey all His commandments will spend eternity, with Jesus and the Father.

    Where is YOUR focus when you follow the Lord? Are you hearing and obeying what His Spirit is saying to you? He will be leading you into the path of holiness. There are two types of ministries today. Those who are faithful in all of God's house and those who are not and tell the difference, you have only to hear what they teach and what they preach. Is their focus on obedience to the Holy Spirit which results in walking according to the Spirit and thereby putting to death the deeds of the flesh? Or are they speaking about other things that do not focus on your relationship with God and a walk of holiness before the Lord.

    It is time to recognize which messages you are listening to and whether you are being led by men or by the Holy Spirit. Those who are led by the Holy Spirit are the sons of God (Romans 8:14). The Holy Spirit will lead you to a life of holiness because this is what He is saying. If you are in a place that is not giving this all important message, strongly encouraging everyone to seek, hear and obey the Holy Spirit, then you are not in a place of life but a place of death. Will you pray and see if God confirms all I've shared with you and do what He instructs you to do?

    Now is the time. Today is the day. Tomorrow will be too late because Jesus is coming far sooner than you think. There is so much deception in the world and everyone is trying to "read the times" but just as the religious leaders of Jesus' day failed to recognize His coming in their midst, so do the religious leaders of today fail to see or understand what the Spirit is saying because they have not been faithful to seek, hear and obey the voice of the Holy Spirit. Had they been faithful, what I am sharing with you will not be new to you but something you've been hearing all along.

    Soon after I received the Lord in 1976, I started receiving prophetic visions and warnings about the future of the church and the United States. I share my visions on my Hidden Manna websites and offer free of charge my two ebooks entitled “Hidden Manna” and “Hidden Manna 2”.

    1. Excellent!

      Are you one of the sons of Zadok? The new covenant fulfillment of the feast of Pentecost was when the Holy Spirit came down in the book of Acts. The original feast of Pentecost took place on the day that God gave the law to Moses on Mt. Sinai. So on the day of Pentecost in Acts chapter two, the giving of the law on Mt. Sinai was fulfilled by the Holy Spirit, just like Jesus fulfilled the feast of Passover when He died on the cross. So by understanding that the feast of Pentecost was fulfilled by the Holy Spirit, we can understand that the importance of understanding (hearing) and obeying the law under the old covenant was transferred to hearing and obeying the Holy Spirit under the new covenant. Can you hear the Holy Spirit instructing you what to do? If not, look at the consequences that happened to those that did not obey the law under the old covenant, and you will get a feel for how serious this matter is. Read this article with that in mind.

    2. In 2013, I wrote about this same difference in ministries. Much of what I said is repeated in this message but with, I hope, a greater clarity than the first one. You can read the first message here:
