The memorial portion starts on Friday, June 11th, 2010 through Saturday, June 12th, 2010.

In chapter sixteen of the book of Numbers the Memorial Parsha begins with Korach confronting Moses. He tells Moses that you have gone too far in thinking that you are the only one that should lead the people. This dissention causes the camp to be split. As you know the camp was divided into four where each family of the Levites would serve three tribes. Moreover, the word of God came unto Moses and unto me saying that the Levites, Aaron and sons would minister unto God; but the Levites would perform duties based on their division: to offer burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, to minister, to give thanks and to sing praises at the gates of the LORD’s dwelling.

However, through prophecy Moses was getting the tribe of Levite ready for the lord, King David. King David will forever be the King over Israel, the children of Israel. This is fact, but there are so many Christians that want to forget about the fact that this is not theology this is fact. In Psalm 110:1, King David admonishes that his own descendant will be called many wonderful titles like King of kings and Lord of lords and King David responds about the Messiah, Jesus that he shall be from the order of Melchizedek (King of Righteousness and King of Peace). Matthew 22:41-46  This does not mean that in your Christianity that you have to teach that if a person doesn’t come into their religion then they are not entitled to go before the throne of King David. There the Pharisees like, Korach is trying to figure out this one thing “how do I fit in the picture?” I have seen many Christians altogether wipe out the descendants of Aaron by saying “can we all sit at the table of King David, and he is a priest, and we can all sit at the table of King David.” This makes no sense and is false, if you are not from the remnant of the House of David, then you can’t stand before King David. Now the only exception to standing before King David is the House of Aaron. The Order of King David is the Messiah, and this Priest is eternal, not something made up or created. When you see the House of King David restored, then you will know that the end time is fulfilled. Jesus said fulfilled the Law of Moses, and this law will remain in effect forever, because this is the Order of Melchizedek. Now you have an option you can live by grace or by law, but if you live by law you will be required to be judged by the law – this is the covenant God made with the children of Israel, going into the Promised Land. So this does not mean if you are a Gentile you should follow every word of Moses because it may not do anything for you being that you are proud of your nationality, or because of religious oppression you may be living in the Middle East and you may not be able to observe the Law of Moses. However when you do observe the Law of Moses, Jesus said testify in my name. Jesus wanted the Jewish people, the true inhabitants of Israel – the children of Israel, the Promised Land, and the ones that can actually go toe-to-toe with the insurgents and the terrorist and say that all though I have been in exile. I can truly say that this is my land. Jesus says to this person, the greatest shall be the person that teaches my commandment to perform all of the law. Matthew 5:17-20,

F. Matthew 22:45 : Rom 1:3, 4
G. Matthew 22:46 : Luke 14:6
H. Matthew 22:46 : Mark 12:34; Luke 20:40

Moses instructs the people to meet with him on tomorrow and he is very angry. He says to the LORD, that he did not take one donkey from and nor did he hurt them and that He should not respect their offerings. So Moses instructs the people (250), and Aaron to with him tomorrow with the censer before the LORD. The LORD spoke to Moses and said: Speak to the congregation and tell them to get away from the tents of Korah, Dathan and Abiram (Numbers 16:23).  Moses word came true the next day and the LORD created a new thing and the earth opened up its mouth and swallowed them up with all that belong to them and they went down alive into the pit. Moses wanted this because he wanted the people to understand that these men had rejected the LORD. The LORD has only chosen the Moses and also a fire came out from the LORD and consumed the two hundred and fifty men who were offering incense. God says,
 36And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying
 37Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning, and scatter thou the fire yonder; for they are hallowed.
 38The censers of these sinners against their own souls, let them make them broad plates for a covering of the altar: for they offered them before the LORD, therefore they are hallowed: and they shall be a sign unto the children of Israel.
(Numbers 16:36-38, King James Version)

At the end of the chapter the people complained on the next day about killing the people of the LORD. But, Moses and Aaron turned toward the tabernacle of the meeting and suddenly the glory of the LORD appeared. The LORD tells Moses to get away from the congregation because he will consume them (v. 45). Moses tells Aaron to use the censer with fire from the altar and make atonement for the congregation and the plague has already begun. After had made atonement for the people he had stood between the dead and the living; so the plague was stopped. The people that died from the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred and the additional two hundred and fifty that died in the Korach incident. (v. 46-49).

In closing the children of Israel learned in a very difficult way that the memorial is that “no outsider, who is not a descendant of Aaron, should come near to offer incense before the LORD, that he might not become like Korah and his comopanions, as the word of the LORD had come unto Moses, and not Korah, or another Christian religion. Although Jesus is a descendant of David, and the Pharisees asked how can you be his lord if you are his son? Many times in the house of Israel we don’t know each other, the people are blind to one anothers status and well there is a divided Kingdom to this day. However, we all know who we are, and some of us can go before the throne of David and some of us can’t. Nevertheless, God has taken vanity away from us all because even the princes of Israel shall fall like men. We each have a wonderful spiritual heritage and our God is more than able to give us love and to usher us to a permanent and eternal and loving home, so don’t worry about your discouragements and your set backs i.e., disease, drug addiction, poverty and homelessness – eternal life is waiting around the corner. Jesus said you have to be born again to receive eternal life and your righteousness must exceed that of the Pharisees. Amen. God bless you.

In this weeks, Haftorah 1 Samuel 11 through 12

The prophet Samuel is a descendant of Korach, and upon Gods granting a request, he is directed by God to install a man name Saul (from the tribe of Benjamin) to be king over the Jews. King Saul is anointed as King by Samuel and is officially crowned King of Israel. King Saul was crowned king in the presence of the LORD God. A sacrifice was offered, the fellowship offering to help stimulate the fellowship with one another. In addition, the celebration of King Saul was great at the second, or the reaffirmation of Saul as King of Israel.

Then Samuel installs Saul as King at the urging of the people. Next Samuel, the prophet reads a passage from the Memorial Portion of Korach from Moses stating that his leadership has been exemplary. Samuel also encourages the people not to play the harlot with the nations and worship false gods, their wooden and gold idols.
