Today, we study about Priesthood (in YAH)!
Each person who has genuinely accepted YAHUVEH’S Salvation becomes a Priest as per 1 Peter 2:9. And we are not just Priests but rather Royal Priests! Our Royalty is eternal!
As Priests, there are expectations from YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH who is The Great High Priest.
Some of us are also called to be High Priests, that is to say be leaders thus guide YAH’S People who are like sheep and lambs before YAH into YAH’S Will!
This is a wide subject as there is so much to study here. Will stop here for now. We have various teachings on “Priests/Priesthood” on this website.

BA-RUCH A-TAH YAHUVEH ADO-NAI E-LO-HE-NU ME-LECH HA-OLAM
ASHER KID-E-SHA-NU BE-MITZ-VO-TAV VETZI-VA-NU AL SEFI-RAT HA-OMER.
Blessed are You, YAHUVEH LORD our GOD, KING of the Universe, who has sanctified us with HIS commandments, and commanded us concerning the counting of the Omer.
Today is twenty-nine days, which is four weeks and one day of the Omer.
May the Merciful One restore unto us the service of the Bet Hamikdash to its place, speedily in our days; Amen, Selah.
For the Choirmaster; a song with instrumental music; a Psalm.
May YAH be gracious to us and bless us; may HE make HIS countenance shine upon us forever; that Your way be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations.
The nations will extol YOU, O YAH; all the nations will extol YOU.
The nations will rejoice and sing for joy, for
YOU will judge the peoples justly and guide the nations on earth forever.
The peoples will extol YOU, O YAH; all the peoples will extol YOU, for the earth will have yielded its produce and YAH, our YAH, will bless us. YAH will bless us; and all, from the farthest corners of the earth, shall fear HIM.
We implore YOU, by the great power of YOUR right hand, release the captive. Accept the prayer of YOUR people; strengthen us, purify us, Awesome One. Mighty One, we beseech You, guard as the apple of the eye those who seek YOUR Oneness. Bless them, cleanse them; bestow upon them forever YOUR merciful righteousness. Powerful, Holy One, in YOUR abounding goodness, guide YOUR congregation. Only and Exalted One, turn to YOUR people who are mindful of YOUR holiness. Accept our supplication and hear our cry, YOU who knows secret thoughts. Blessed be the name of the GLORY of HIS KINGDOM forever and ever. We pray all this, in YAHUSHUA’S name, Amen!
Master of the universe, YOU have commanded us through Moses YOUR servant to count Sefirat Ha-Omer, in order to purify us from our evil and uncleanness.As You have written in YOUR TORAH, “You shall count for yourselves from the day following the day of rest, from the day on which you bring the Omer as a wave-offering; [the counting] shall be for seven full weeks. Until the day following the seventh week shall you count fifty days,” so that the souls of Your people, Israel may be cleansed from their defilement.Therefore, may it be YOUR Will, LORD YAHUVEH our ELOHIM and ELOHIM of our fathers, that in the merit of the Sefirat Ha-Omer which I counted today, the blemish that I have caused in the sefirah Chesed ShebeHod be rectified and I may be purified and sanctified with supernatural holiness. May abundant bounty thereby be bestowed upon all the worlds. May it rectify our nefesh, ruach and neshamah from every baseness and defect, and may it purify and sanctify us with Your supernal holiness. Amen in YAHUSHUA’S name, selah!
SHALOM and SHAVUA TOV!
