Apostle Paul’s teaching Yahusha’s Mikveh as “elementary”
by Rav Sha'ul


Below is what Paul wrote concerning the elementary teaching about Yahusha's Mikveh:

Hebrews 6

1 Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about The Messiah and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again (now Paul lists the fundamental teaching about Yahusha) the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in YHVH, 2 instruction (Torah requirements) about cleansing rites (Mikveh) and (instruction or Torah requirements concerning) washing of hands, (and Torah requirements concerning) the laying on of hands (to transfer the sins onto The Passover Lamb), the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. 3 And YHVH permitting (us to mature), we will do so (but only if we understand Yahusha's Mikveh).

So, let me make what Paul is saying crystal clear. In vs. 1 he states these are teachings "about Yahusha" then lists each critical teaching about Yahusha. In vs. 2 he mentions "instructions" which in Hebrew is the word "Torah" concerning "cleansing rites" which is Mikveh. So let me restate more clearly below how Hebrews 6 should read, remember Paul was a Nazarene, keeper of The Torah:

Hebrews 6

1 Therefore let us move forward and mature in our understanding about the things concerning Yahusha, not laying again (having to relearn over and over) the basic teaching about Yahusha (everything mentioned below is talking “about Yahusha”):

· About Yahusha's foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death (referring to Yahusha’s Mikveh for repentance by John)

· and of Yahusha's faith in YHVH (to wipe away his sin through Mikveh)

· 2 "instructions" about "cleansing rites" (i.e. we must know Torah requirements concerning Mikveh to know the significance of what was happening to Yahusha)

· and (Torah requirements) of washing and the laying on of hands (at Yahusha's Mikveh, the ritual to transfer priestly authority and pass the sins of the world on to Yahusha as The Passover Lamb)

· How Yahusha was resurrected from the dead by YHVH who heard his cries because of his piety in life (Hebrews 5:7)

· and how Yahusha now reigns as eternal judge over the House of YHVH (Zechariah 3:7)

3 And YHVH will only permit us to move on to maturity (concerning Yahusha) once we lay this foundation firmly.

The Apostle Paul is teaching us the importance of Yahusha’s Mikveh. YHVH will not permit us to move on and mature in spiritual knowledge until we understand what happened when John cried out “Behold! The Passover Lamb of God” and then Mikveh’d Yahusha. We will remain "children" in YHVH and never progress to full maturity until we understand the concept I am explaining in this book about Yahusha. Paul stressed this very well and after trying to explain everything I am in this book about Yahusha as Melchizedek he finally "seemingly" through his arms up in frustration and said:

Hebrews 5

11 We have much to say about this (in context he was talking about Yahusha as the Ruling Zadok), but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. 12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers (of The Torah, there was no NT for another 300 years), you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of YHVH’s word (The Torah) all over again. You need milk, not solid food! 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness (again The Torah). 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use (obedience to The Torah) have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil (which is what The Law was given for).

That concept summarized so eloquently in Hebrews 6:1 by the Apostle Paul, was exactly what Zachariah saw in a vision from YHVH in Zachariah Chapter 3.

Paul understood everything I am explaining here. He listed baptism or ritual cleansing (Mikveh) and the laying on of hands in context of Yahusha as so fundamental to our growth in YHVH that if we do not understand these doctrines... YHVH will stunt our growth in Him. Yahusha's Mikveh is THE starting point and pivotal moment when Yahusha became The Messiah, The Eternal High Priest Melchizedek, and Passover Lamb of God all given Yahusha through inheritance (bloodlines).

Let me summarize Hebrews 6:1 again so we are clear. Paul says these are "elementary teachings about Yahusha". Yes, everything Paul listed in Hebrews 6:1 were concerning Yahusha and referring to his Mikveh:

  • Repentance from acts that lead to death - Yahusha repented of any acts that lead to death by going to John to be Mikveh'd. We don't know "what" because his life prior to that point was not documented for a reason (it doesn’t matter to YHVH), they were not just "missing". They no longer "counted" in the eyes of YHVH because Yahusha had repented and been Mikveh'd. This is probably why his documented life begins when he at his Mikveh; his previous life simply had no relevance to Yahusha's state of perfection from then on.
  • Laying on of Hands - It at Yahusha’s Mikveh that John laid hands on Yahusha, he was ritually cleansed through Mikveh, and the sins of the world where transferred onto Yahusha's shoulder as The Passover Lamb. That is the role of The High Priest each year to lay hands on the lamb and transfer the sins of Israel.
  • Instructions about cleansing rites - Torah is Hebrew for "instructions" and cleansing rites is Mikveh. So this literally says "know The Torah concerning Mikveh"! On the day of his Mikveh, Yahusha was forgiven by YHVH, cleansed, and consecrated a High Priest per Torah requirements (exactly as portrayed in Zachariah's vision).
  • Exercising faith toward YHVH – Yahusha exercised his faith at his Mikveh that YHVH would “wipe away his sin” as He promised in The Torah (instructions about cleansing rites) and confirmed in the desert (Zachariah 3).
  • Resurrected from the dead - The Word says YHVH "heard Yahusha's cry to deliver him from death" BECAUSE of Yahusha's piety Hebrews 5:7. Just like Zachariah's vision shows.
  • Eternal Judgment - As YHVH promised The High Priest Yahusha in Zachariah's vision, IF Yahusha would obey His commandments and demonstrate his piety toward YHVH (Hebrews 5:7), THEN Yahusha would "govern" the House of YHVH and be in charge of his "courts". YHVH would also forgive the sins of the world in one day (the Passover execution of Yahusha). Yahusha was given a name above every name and seated at YHVH right hand. Just like Zachariah’s vision showed us, Yahusha was made King and he “governs the house of YHVH” and Eternal Judge taking over YHVH's courts. This too was prophesied in Isaiah 9:6 "and the GOVERNMENT shall be on his shoulders". Yahusha now reigns as the eternal King/Judge/High Priest.
