The Chavurat Bekorot, which in the Hebrew means "Community of the Firstborn" (or Church/Assembly of the Firstborn)
is the body to which the Patriarch-Apostles of the New Covenant Assemblies of Yahweh (NCAY), and all those who live in firstborn communities belong. It is
sometimes known as the Patriarchal Order, the Holy Order, the Melchizedek Order (not to be confused with other groups of the same name), and the Holy Priesthood Order of Melchizedek. It's relationship to other orders and ministries of NCAY is shown in the diagram below:
The Chavurat Bekorot is therefore the axis upon which all the other components of this ministry turn, as itself turns around Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) and thence Yahweh our Father in Heaven.
The Chavurat Bekorot is best described as a priesthood order. Membership is open only to those who have committed themselves 100 per cent to the Master Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ), to the New Covenant Torah by covenant and who desire to implement the fullness of the Millennial Theocratic Kingdom in their lives in preparation for the theocratic rule which will be established by Messiah upon His triumphant return. All potential members of the Chavurat Bekorot must first have been tested and tried as faithful members of the local congregations of NCAY over the required period of time that would qualify them as at least Deacons or Deaconesses. Membership into the Order is by invitation of the Patriarchate and by recommendation of the local Bishopric (or in its absense) the local Pastorate, and is not by personal application. Those interested in the Chavurat Bekorot should therefore be baptised into a local congregation of NCAY and serve diligently there until they are called.
Admission to membership in the Chavurat Bekorot does not guarantee admission to firstborn colonies (as opposed to local NCAY congregations) which are special gatherings of priesthood officers (male and female) whose special calling is to prepare and live the millennial theocratic order in its fullness which includes living the united order of its members sharing all wealth in common like the first believers in Jerusalem. Sometimes people confuse the two. Callings to firstborn colonies are made only to highly mature, committed, motivated, and spiritually purified priesthood officers and their families. Only the apostles are de facto members of these communities. Screening of potential members is rigorous and the spiritual requirements exacting.
The Chavurat Bekorot is therefore divided into three Sub-orders:
which are otherwise known as
Priesthood officers in good standing (Elders, Eldresses, Deacons and Deaconesses) are trained by, and receive their Priesthood commissions from, the Order, and are therefore members of it. Therefore whereas baptism, chrism (confirmation) and partaking of the Master's Supper confer membership of a man or woman into the New Covenant Assemblies of Yahweh (NCAY) and specifically into a local congregation (congregation/assembly), priesthood ordination alone confers membership into the Chavurat Bekorot. As priesthood stewardship is reviewed annually just before Yom haKippurim (Day of Atonements), membership in the Holy Order has to be renewed on an annual basis as well.
Members of the Order of Sub-Deacons and Sub-Deaconesses (trainee Deacons and Deaconesses who do not need to be married like the Deacons and Deaconesses) are not members of the Holy Order.
Most of the materials pertaining to the Enochian (Eldership) and Zadokian (Deaconate) Orders are available to the public and may, as they are put up, be viewed on this site. You will find articles and FAQs explaining how the Chavurat Bekorot functions today and (as it is a continuously developing living body) how it functioned in the past. Being as the Order lives on the cutting edge of revelation, and is being continuously refined and purified, it is not a static institution but a living organism, and is therefore continually maturing and aspiring to the perfection to which it has been called.
There are few written materials on the Patriarchal Order because instruction is almost exclusively communicated orally. Some written materials have been inserted on this website to allow those who have been called to the apostolic office to find their way home, and these may be viewed, for example, in some of the revelations of the The Olive Branch such as the New Olive Leaf revelations. Some of the Order's deuterocanonical scriptures and other materials are reproduced on this page for the benefit of the firstborn searching for their spiritual home. They are not official materials of the local congregations of the New Covenant Assemblies of Yahweh and are not used in public study or devotions, being solely for the edification of the members of the Order.
As most of the material on this site is deep (the "meat" of the Gospel) we do not recommend its study until the material on the main page of the New Covenant Assemblies of Yahweh has first been digested as it will likely be misunderstood. If you are not acquainted with the "milk" or elementary principles of the Besorah (Gospel) then we recommend you go back to the Main Page and return here another time.
May Yahweh bless and guide you in your search for emet (truth) that you may honour Him and His Son Yah'shua (Jesus).
