The Royal Chavurat Bekorot
Melchizedek Priesthood Logo
The Royal Melchizedek Priesthood Logo, introduced in March 2017, (top) serves as the Chavurat Bekorot's (Holy Oder's ) logo of the Melechidek Priesthood. Designed by Avah Batyah in 2012, it has, however, also been extensively used in NCAY publications online as a logo for various online Messianic Evangelical discussion groups where it has been very popular. Since 2012 it has become by far the best and most widely known Messianic Evangelical symbol and for this reason is retained generally. It has appeared with various backgrounds, for example:
By far the best known background format is that of the giant spiritual wave designed by Lev-Tsiyon (below):
HISTORICAL NCAY MELCHIZEDEK LOGOS
The first of the Royal Melchizedek Priesthood Logo designs (see right), designed by Lev-Tsiyon (above), made its appearance in 1986 and consisted of two traditional elements combined:
Three designs have been in use, the last one being the second of the three, in which the second element (the lamb and the book) was enlarged. The third design, made up of a different lamb-and-book arrangment, was never popular and appeared briefly as an alternate form in about 1990 (see left).
- (a) an interlacing six-pointed star representing Israel; and
- (b) a white lamb with red cruciform halo reclining on the Book of Dispensations, with the seventh seal marked red to represent the last dispensation before the Millennium. (For further information, see Royal Melchizedek Priesthood Banner).
Before revelation was received changing the main logo to the sceptered and crowned lion, this logo was that of the whole Community from 1986-92. It effectively disappeared during the early part of the NCCF (New Covenant Christian Fellowship) period (1992-96) though began re-appearing as the Royal Melchizedek Priesthood logo in about 1994-5. In 1995 it was combined with the NCCF Banner (which then became the banner of NCCG/BCAY Missions) to create the Local Branch Banner (now obsolete) and the Central Assembly Banner (also obsolete) where it was a common sight. It was utilised in many other older but now obsolete NCAY banners, including the Royal Melchizedek Priesthood Banner, and so forth.
Apart from the Lion, the Logo of the Royal Melchizedek Priesthood was one of the most widely used symbols in the early NCAY, as well as being amongst the oldest, before it was discontinued in 2009.
The use of the so-called 'Star of David' or hexagram was questioned a number of times during NCAY's early history because of its occultic and Illuminist associations. For an early discussion on this, see A Question of Symbols and Magick. In 2009 it was decided, in view of the almost ubiquitous use of the hexagram in occult rituals for summonising demons for cursing people, its use by both Talmudic Judaism and a counterfeit Israelite antichrist state in the Middle East as a national emblem (inspired by the Illuminist Rothschild family), is used by subversive occult organisations like the Freemasons and by others with an anti-Christian agenda, was used anciently in Canaan to represent the pagan deities of Moloch and Remphan, and was adopted by Solomon when he descended into paganism, to cease using the hexagram in NCAY symbology as logos, banners and representations of the Messiah even though our own usage has a totally different meaning to that of the occultists (much as the swastika is used entirely differenly by fascist organisations in the West to philosophical systems in the Orient). Accordingly, for these reasons, as well as to symbolically make a complete break with our early beginnings, all NCCG/BCAY banners including the hexagram were destroyed on 20 June 2009. For more information on the history of the hexagram, see The Six-Pointed Star: The Mark of the Beast.
