MYSTERY OF MELCHIZEDEK- VANISHES FROM HISTORY-GREATEST MAN IN OLD TESTAMENT

Abraham and Melchizedek

My Prophecy Page

From the Masons to the Mormons and New Agers, every kook in creation claims the Melchizedek Priesthood. This is a Biblical study of who he was and what this means for us today.

BACKGROUND SCRIPTURE FOR THIS ARTICLE: Genesis 14: 18-20, Psalm 110: 4, and Hebrews 5:6, 7: 1-10

A NON-JEWISH PRIEST-KING WHO WAS GREATER THAN THE FATHER OF THE JEWS

Melchizedek makes one brief appearance in Genesis 14 when he met Abraham as he was returning from the battle with Chedorlaomer, then he vanishes from history. This non-Jewish Priest-King receives an offering from Abraham and blesses the father of the Jews, showing he was superior to both Abraham and his descendants. The writer to the Hebrews explains this for us: “But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises. And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.” Hebrews 7: 6-7

MELCHIZEDEK’S PRIESTHOOD SUPERIOR TO LEVI

The Priesthood of this non-Jewish king was superior to the Jewish Priesthood of Levi. Again, the writer to the Hebrews tells us: “Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils…And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham…For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.” Hebrews 7: 4, 9-10

HE WAS PRIEST OF THE MOST HIGH GOD, CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH

Then we are told that Melchizedek was the Priest of The Most High God. Why this title for God? Why was the Priesthood of the Most High God superior to the Priesthood of Aaron? Abraham even swore an oath to the Most High God in his encounter with Melchizedek. Genesis 14:22 NIV But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “With raised hand I have sworn an oath to the LORD, God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth,”

CHRIST, LIKE MELCHIZEDEK, WOULD BE A PRIEST-KING OF THE MOST HIGH GOD

David, writing under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit says that Christ would be the same kind of Priest- King that Melchizedek was: “The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.” Psalm 110:4

WHO WAS MELCHIZEDEK?

Now, before we get into what all this means, let’s settle who this man was.

Some say that he was Shem but he cannot be Shem because Hebrews 7:6 tells us very clearly the Melchizedek had no traceable genealogy: “but he whose genealogy is not counted from them hath taken tithes of Abraham, and hath blessed him that hath the promises.” We know Shem’s genealogy so it cannot be Shem.

Some say that Melchizedek was a preincarnation of Jesus or what is called a Christophany, but we are again told in Hebrews 7:3 that Mechizedek was a type of Christ: “resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest forever”. You cannot resemble something and be that something at the same time. You cannot be like Christ and be Christ at the same time.

In the Bible genealogies are very important and great (sometimes tedious) details are given about them. Melchizedek’s missing genealogy is startling. The Holy Spirit left out any reference to Melchizedek’s genealogy so that he would picture Christ. This does not mean he literally had no father or mother, we just do not know who they were. Hebrews 7:3 NLT “There is no record of his father or mother or any of his ancestors—no beginning or end to his life. He remains a priest forever, resembling the Son of God.”

Likewise, his birth and death are not recorded to round out the type fully.

MELCHIZEDEK WAS A HUMAN KING IN ABRAHAM’S TIME

So, who was Melchizedek? He was a real Priest-King who lived at the time of Abraham. G. H. Pember has this to say about Melchizedek: “Melchizedek points to an earlier revelation and higher form of Divine Government than has since been known. It would seem then, that Melchizedek may have been one of a series of royal and priestly heads of the world appointed by God in primeval time; but whose functions and power were circumscribed by the increasing disobedience of mankind until their office was altogether ignored, save by the few who feared the Lord at all…The Priest- King doubtless represented God’s perfect form of rule, but in the hands of mere man proved ineffectual.”

MOST HIGH GOD

This is a title for God that shows he is God of the whole world and not just the Jew; it is His title as the Creator of heaven and earth. Romans 3:29 “Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:”

General and Special Revelation are two subjects that fascinate me. God has made Himself known to all mankind through General Revelation. The visible order found in creation and the intuitive awareness of God is General Revelation. Later, God gave us a written revelation in the Bible, this is called Special Revelation. The greatest insult to the Most High God is to reject General Revelation because it has been given to every person on earth and the result of this insult is reprobation.

Romans 1: 18-20, 24 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

Melchizedek was a priest of the Most High God, maker of heaven and earth. He lived in a time when General Revelation was all that was available, the Bible had not been written and yet this Gentile priest was greater than Abraham. He was both a priest to Abraham, the father of the Jews, and the non-Jews who were his subjects. Jesus is priest, not just to the Jews, but the whole world.

THE “UNKNOWN GOD” IS THE SAME AS “THE MOST HIGH GOD”

Paul had this aspect of God as Creator of heaven and earth in mind when he made reference to “The Unknown God” in Acts. Look at what he said:

“For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Acts 17: 23-28

(The story behind this alter is fascinating and I hope to take it up soon in another article.)

 

SUPERIOR TO LEVI – PRIEST TO BOTH JEW AND GENTILE

The Levitical Priesthood was only for the Jews. The Melchizedek Priesthood is for the whole world.

CHRIST WAS JEW AND GENTILE

Jesus had Gentiles in His genealogy – Rahab and Ruth. How fitting for Him who would be High Priest to both. Some Messianics and Hebrew Roots folks will have a fit over this fact. You will see it in the comments but they will be unable to shake this rock out of their theological shoe. JESUS HAD GENTILES IN HIS GENEALOGY.

Some people would have you believe that their Messianic teachers and Rabbis have a special relationship with God that you don’t have. Melchizedek lays this error in the dust forever. You are just as special to God as they are.

So, rejoice in Christ, the Priest-King of the Most High God, Creator of heaven and earth, the Priest-King of the entire world. You are not inferior to any one in your relationship with Him.

Now here comes something mind blowing. Melchizedek was a Priest-King, Jesus is a Priest-King, and if you are a follower of Christ, you are destined to become a Priest-King. Revelation 1:6 “And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”

SPECIAL NOTE: I HOLD ABSOLUTELY NO PREJUDICE AGAINST ANY RACE, I THINK ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL IN THE SIGHT OF GOD.

I agree with Peter: ” Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.” Acts 10:34-35

NOTE TWO: THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD BUT HE HAS MANY ATTRIBUTES:

El Shaddai (Lord God Almighty) El Elyon (The Most High God) Adonai (Lord, Master) Yahweh (Lord, Jehovah) Jehovah Nissi (The Lord My Banner) Jehovah-Raah (The Lord My Shepherd) Jehovah Rapha (The Lord That Heals) Jehovah Shammah (The Lord Is There) Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord Our Righteousness) Jehovah Mekoddishkem (The Lord Who Sanctifies You) El Olam (The Everlasting God) Elohim (God) Qanna (Jealous) Jehovah Jireh (The Lord Will Provide) Jehovah Shalom (The Lord Is Peace) Jehovah Sabaoth (The Lord of Hosts)

      Please if you do not have insight ask for it..
      Melchizedek was the Lord Himself!!!

      • THE QUICKENING

        Why is it that People take WORDS out of context? …….Melchizedek was A lord, Not the Lord. …There is alot of History Missing …So noone can really Know? …Just speculate! …. Fear is the opposite of Love, so why would you Fear god? ….. In Genesis 1:26 it reads ” And God said, let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness ” ….So who is “US” and “OUR” …Are you sure that their is only One GOD??? ….. John 10:34 – “you are Gods” …… Psalms 82 – ” I say, You are GODS, sons of the most high, all of you” ……. Jmmanuel (Jesus’ real name) Matthew 1:23 – was a World Teacher who Taught against organized Religion and was Teaching man to think for themselves and not the False Teachings of the Church of the Day. ….the Pharisees and Sadducees then had Jmmanuel crucified on the cross for Blasphemy and Heresy against the Church. …..Then they Created a Church in his Honor and Adulterated his teachings to enslave his followers. ….2000 years later and most are still in Bondage to False Teachings, Thinking that they Know the TRUTH while all this time they are the ones being deceived. … Time to WAKE UP !!!

      • stompk

        Well, the Bible was essentially written by the Jewish religion. It’s their history, so it makes sense that a lot of important non Jewish people didn’t make it into the Bible (Torah).

      • yes2truth

        Andor is correct!!!!

        Melchizedek was the King of Righteousness and only Yashua Messiah can carry that title.

        Only Yashua Messiah could receive Abraham’s tithe – no one else.

    • am123

      “if you are a follower of Christ, you are destined to become a Priest-King. Revelation 1:6 “And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”

      Yes, amen! And I might add the following Mike:

      “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.”

      —1st Peter 2:5

      • LAYNALAND

        very good – glad you posted this verse…Those who believe in Jesus (Yeshua) are made kings and priests (priestesses) unto god and his father.
        L. :idea:

    • am123

      “The Levitical Priesthood was only for the Jews. The Melchizedek Priesthood is for the whole world”

      Excellent point Mike!

      And that also comes into play in the new heavens and new earth, but that’s another subject :wink:

    • friends2you

      Very interesting article, sounds like the Mormons have something going for them since their priesthood is Melchizedek.

      • Anonymous

        The Morons are a fraud and abomination created as a ‘little boy’s” vision of paradise complete with the muslim dream of LOTS of women(sex) and no responsiblitiy. The Moron story was based on the idea tha no one would ever check his “facts”.

          My wife worked for a strict Mormon for several years. They wear special underwear, with symbols in strategic places. Masonic symbols. They also believe they go to planet Kolob when they die. A little research reveals planet Kolob is actually Saturn! It’s part of the Saturnalien brotherhood.

        • Wretched Infidel

          Yep, you are right, they are very similar and seem intertwined with Muslim belief/theology/doctrines. Amazing… and look at what they do, lots of murder, massacres from the start, unfaithful to truth and right, (using many wives to satisfy their carnality which is completely antithetical to the plan of IAUE)

          plus Mountain Meadows Massacre, on 9-11… 1857 I think it was? That was so evil, so vile, to do to those innocent poor people just trying to pass over to California…

          men, women and children, all but a few massacred in red, cold hateful blood, after deceiving them into thinking they were gonna help them, this is the worst kind of atrocity, perpetrated upon helpless defenseless people or animals…heartless and brutal, cruel, just like the Amalekites, the Muslims now, and any barbaric Satanists would relate directly with.

          Their rituals are just like the Masons’ in many ways, too… they are also intertwined, they work together, hand in glove… Masons and Mormons are two hadns of the same body…

          just as Muslims and Nazis were back in WWII.

          to the person below (couldn’t reply directly to you, no reply button), that is amazzing, strange and weird! thank you both for your information.

          It is weird and fitting that they use the term Kolob … actually Saturn.. that is so blatantly Satanic

          it fits in with the word Caleb, which means ‘Dog’ in Hebrew, (haha) which fits in with the meaning of Sirius, the Dog Star, Sirius

          which is identified with Saturn the planet, and the God.
          Amazing information, isn’t it when you put all the pieces with each other, it all fits perfectly in a weird reality that the people who trust in ‘goodness’ would die if they found out…

          “My wife worked for a strict Mormon for several years. They wear special underwear, with symbols in strategic places”

          Your wife knows what kind of underwear her boss wears and you didn’t get suspicious?

    • Ron Hauser

      Jesus verified that he was Melchizedek in John 8:52> 58. They ridiculed him for his verifying having met Abraham because he (Jesus wasn’t even fifty years old and of course Abraham had
      been dead in the flesh for several centuries). Jesus answered them Verily , verily, I say unto you, before Abraham was, I am. Your article is arguably right that Melchizedek couldn’t resemble something and be that same something at the same time. Jesus the Christ,” Immanuel “in the
      Hebrew tongue translates “with us is God”. That is to say God in a flesh body. 2nd witness is John 14:9 he that hath seen me has seen the Father. The same entity that met Abraham later
      became Jesus. Also consider that Jesus Mother Mary was Levite (Her cousin Elizabeth was married to Zacharias) and Mary’s Father Heli was a decended through the house of David.(
      witness Luke 3:24> ) Jesus Christ is King of king and Lord of lords after the order of Melchizedek,
      because He was Melchizedek. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
      May God Bless all that seek Him. Ron Hauser

    • Louis

      Melchizedek was the first priest to offer gifts of bread and wine to God in anticipation of Christ offering the bread and wine of his own Divine Flesh and Blood to God the Father to atone for the sins of the world.

      Christ was and is a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek, whose Catholic priesthood is superior to all other priesthoods.

    • tony

      i enjoyed this post

      • Xebache

        Had to give a thumbs up. I’m actually dumbfounded when I read an article were I am either for or against and someone makes a simple statement as yours ( to which I whole-heartily concur ) and I see no response just a thumbs down. Well I hope I bring it back to at least a zero instead of a negative one. I thought the article was excellent with some very accurate and profound points. Also this response is a way of freeing myself from wanting to just troll the @#[email protected] out of the folks who just get off on thumbing down almost any decent response. To what IMOP are usually very sincere and truthful articles and simple positive responses from folks. Oh well – irk troll time>
        I grew up with born agains, bikers, musicians and flat out pagan illuminati satanists, and for example the “satanists” had no doubt as to who Jesus Christ is, however they would listen in a polite aloof manor and simply tell “us” – that they choose to be luciferian. None of the petty name calling, insults or as I see here often a lack of any criticism. They willfully just used their freewill to say I’m on the other side. we all new what that meant and foretold. Especially here at BIN do I see a immense amount of shills who just lambaste the contributor with derogatory infantile name calling without any substantiated comment or what originally set me off – the thumbs down type. Apparently they take the time to read the article, then the comments and flagrantly just flip off someone who says – “hey cool – I like it – TY”. As in the folks from my past we know where you stand. Being a saved man who is very aware of his shortcomings I’m supposed to (pray-love) you and hope toward your salvation, but battle is coming.
        Well time is short – and the days of the birth pangs of the Second Coming are upon us the Word says there will be no “fence sitting” – I will never understand how anyone who is aware of what is transpiring can so adamantly choose the losing side especially when that side offers nothing in return but destruction and that being for eternity to boot. The Almighty’s camp roars with praise and joy whenever someones accepts the Gospel of Christ, the enemies camp just roars with laughter at you when you willfully reject God. :idea: common sense 101 anybody. Anyhow -Thanks for a great article and TY Tony for your simple reply – my apologies for ranting and trolling under your thoughts.
        Oh last gripe – Melchizedek wasn’t catholic either :!:

      • Wretched Infidel

        yes, so did I it is very informative and timely,

        thank you

      Yahshua The Messiah was NOT a jew but a Judahite, big difference look them up. Furthermore He was not a halfbreed, which is sometimes called a mongrel or a bastard in those days. Study before posting, as some people will believe whatever they read and go down the wrong path.

      From The Urantia Book:

      “(1015.1) 93:2.1 It was 1,973 years before the birth of Jesus that Machiventa was bestowed upon the human races of Urantia. His coming was unspectacular; his materialization was not witnessed by human eyes. He was first observed by mortal man on that eventful day when he entered the tent of Amdon, a Chaldean herder of Sumerian extraction. And the proclamation of his mission was embodied in the simple statement which he made to this shepherd, “I am Melchizedek, priest of El Elyon, the Most High, the one and only God.”

        Melchizedek being a Christophany is something I don’t agree with. However Jesus was the Word made flesh and all things that are were made by him. Father, Word-Messiah-Son, and Holy Spirit are 3 aspects of the Lord God Almighty. Always used the concept of water which is seen in liquid, ice or vapor yet all water as a simplified way of not brain overloading the the apparent difficulty in the GodHead. :mrgreen: oh -another thumbs up – I see the “mysterious” negative thumbers have been here also.

        There has been 22 reincarnations of Christ since Jesus. The current reincarnation is a black homeless man named William Dixon. He is also the Omega. 1=alpha 22=Omega. He stated we are like a car with a stuck accelerator, and if we don’t get it unstuck, we are going to crash. When gold goes to $3000 per ounce, watch out. Hybrid cars should have 2 battery packs, one powering, and one charging. Future vehicles will travel on cushions of air. There is a great battle on earth between the good and bad people of Saturn. The pyramids were built using scaffolding, concrete, and granite balls used as rolling bearing for the large blocks of granite. The Easter Island statues were stood up by digging holes, and teetering the base into the hole. Sulfuric acid combined with hydrogen peroxide will kill cancer tumors without harming surrounding tissue. The cure to aids is the fermented plum. Something is hidden under the ice at Greenland. Turin, Italy holds a secret crucial to mankind. Mary Magdelene was the mother of Jesus. Young Jesus was raised by an Egyptian Pharoh. Jesus also travelled around the world, as a homeless man.

    • Xebache

      Thank you for the post.

    • Who dat

      Question. Did Adam and Eve have a full vocabulary when they were invented?

      • HereAmI

        Answer.
        They were not invented, but created. And clearly, they did not have a full vocabulary, as Adam was asked to name the animals.
        But your point?

      • No time

        They did not have a full vocabulary, but they did high five each other a lot.

    • Common Sense

      Excuse me, but who are you and by what authority to do you make this claim:

      “You cannot resemble something and be that something at the same time. You cannot be like Christ and be Christ at the same time.”

      Says who?

      All things are possible with God – You have clearly under-estimated God and have given Him limitations!

      Time is a creation of God; therefore God can do whatever He wants with time and at the “same” time.

      • Wretched Infidel

        it is sometimes just a case of trying to express.. it is sometimes just a case of semantics… you know?

        Like this: No one hath seen IAUE (Yah Himself, the Father-Creator of the Bible)

        but the people who have ‘talked with IAUE’ like in days of old and seen an ‘angel of the Lord’, well, what angel was that, in those cases?

        sometimes it was a regular specific other angel, but … there is evidence from the language such as in Exodus, that the Angel may have likely been actually the Messiah, in his form before he became born of man, like the Destroying Angel who passed thru (from IAUE, sent by IAUE) Egypt, to slay the firstborn of all the people who did not place the token blood of the perfect lamb (symbolising the coming of the Messiah, 2000 years hence, and his shed blood for our sakes to deliver us from death)

        that this Angel of Death, (My Destroying Angel), also referred to in this way by IAUE: “I”
        (!)
        is actually his Co-Creator, King/Messiah/The Word Of IAUE who was ‘with IAUE’ in the beginning

        in other words, IAUE’s Co-creator who agrees with IAUE in all things, who does the will of IAUE, not his own, and speaks the words of IAUE, not his own, who carries his Father’s Name, (not coming in his ‘own’ different name), was possibly the Angel sent BY IAUE, to perform the plague of death of the firstborn of all families who did not heed IAUE’s instructions to let those slaves go free from Egypt.. Pharaoh, and all the Egyptians who did not choose to heed those warnings, all had this destruction come upon them – whcih was SENT by IAUE, via a Being, a Spirit, which he referred to as ‘I”, and ‘My Angel’ ‘Angel of Death/Desruction”… this can be, to me, Yahushua
        as well as it possibly being another Angel of IAUE. But the fact that Yahushua is called ‘My Strong Right Arm’ and ‘My Son’ and ‘The Word’ and who also was seen in the form of (was it this same spirit? possibly, even likely it was, it seems to me very likely from the context of the account of the escape out into the desert before the Red Sea)
        a Pillar of Cloud by day and a Pillar of Fire by Night…
        which went between the fleeing trapped Hebrews and their Egyptian slave masters, when Pharaoh, double-minded as any psychopathically arrogant (stupid) men today are, changed again his mind and chased after them,
        even after admitting that IAUE was indeed, the Creator….

        Was this Angel Yahushua?
        Maybe so.
        Maybe another, but it doesn’t detract if it was another spirit sent by IAUE, because either way, Yah gets his will done, and it is magnificent.. either way. And we know that Yahushua completely AGREED with how it was done! Because they are always in complete and total accord in all things.. they are both righteous.

    • Wretched Infidel

      This is very very fascinating to study and to ponder, thank you Mike Clinton!

      Long ago a friend told me that they believed that Melchizedek was probably the Messiah, and I didn’t know enough to even think that maybe they were right.

      Later learning the meaning of the name, it does seem like it is very possible, if not another righteous angel of Yah, that the very mysterious nature of this Being or ‘Man’ of Righteousness with no geneology (before he was born of man) plus the things that he did, and the awe in which he is held thru history, (his great age, his unknown and legendary status, lineage and power, etc) plus his name, (fittingly mysterious, vague yet pointed, also!) which means literally,

      Righteous Messenger

      HaHa! IAUE surely does test the hearts and minds of men, and testing our ability to understand, to imagine, to comprehend His Great and Mysterious Neverending Ways of Life, beautiful and mysterious … !

      The Israelites were polytheistic, not monotheistic. Jesus was not a Pharisee, he preached against them. He also preached pagan baptism and Eucharist, thus he was not Jewish. Judaism didn’t exist when Jesus was living, it didn’t exist when the Roman trader Saul/Paul lived either. Not until after 70 CE.

      The Pharisees were a political group, not a religion. It was based on the thought and belief intolerant godship rule of Amenhotep IV, c1’300 BCE, Atenism. The worlds first and only monotheistic belief system. All monotheistic beliefs originate from Atenism.

      Abraham spoke to Melchizedek and he spoke to Yah a bit later when Sodom and Gomorrah were to be destroyed. nothing is mentioned that these two figures Abraham saw looked the same. also mentioned in the scriptures is that no man has ever seen Yahuah. i believe Our Creator can look anyway He chooses, but just wanted to let you ponder who abraham spoke to. i’ve be pondering myself. i’ve been thinking Yahuah sends His Son when God has appeared to men. hmmm. happy Sabbath Day to all.

      “CHRIST WAS JEW AND GENTILE”

      Total BS and blasphemous garbage.

      Yashua Messiah was a Royal Judahite NOT A JEW. Jews are Canaanites – the Devil’s seed – The Tares.

        Jesus was not Jewish, Judaism didn’t exist when he was alive, it was created AFTER 70 CE by the political group the Pharisees, AFTER Rome wiped the polytheistic Israelites off the face of Earth. Their laws are word of mouth, aka making it up as you go.

        Jews are the political Pharisees, a group of wealthy influential bankers and traders. Jesus was anti Pharisees he preached against them. He preached pagan baptism and pagan Eucharist, not the political thought and belief intolerance of the Pharisees. He overturned their debt enslavement money lending tables, and preached as an essential criteria for entry into heaven to ‘sell/give everything you own to poor’.

        Christianity is based on the letters attributed to the Roman trader Pharisee Saul/Paul. Not the teachings of Jesus. None of you follow the teachings of Jesus.

        :lol:

        Judaism = Judeanism. The political state dictatorship enforced on the Judeans by the Pharisees after Rome wiped the Israelites off the face of Earth and raised Jerusalem to the ground in 70 CE.

        Canaan was a regional district like saying ‘central america’ that roughly corresponds to the Levant, i.e. modern-day Lebanon, Palestinian territories, the western part of Jordan and southwestern Syria.

        mary was a Hebrew girl – the seed in her womb was supernatural, not of man.

        Jesus was part Hebrew – Jew – and Part God.

        His D.N.A. was found on the Ark of the Covenant, was tested and mary’s chromosome compliment was found, as well as a non-human compliment of chromosomes – proving the supernatural seed of the Holy Spirit.

        You can find information on this on Youtube – look up the discovery of the ark of the covenant at the place of Christ’s Crucifixion.

        L. :idea: very interesting topic.

      It’s hard to believe that so many of you that claim to be religious, quote the Bible constantly and claim to be “experts” HAVE NO IDEA what the hell you are talking about. Not one comment or post is even close to the truth and just reinforces how wrong and deluded you all are.
      You have no understanding of what the Bible is, how or why it was written or by whom. You certainly don’t understand a single word of it.
      What did “Jesus” say about those that practise ORGANISED religion? What did he call those that are “overtly and outwardly religious”?? HYPOCRITES. In fact he was so angry at YOU he shouted it THREE TIMES. HYPOCRITES!!
      The second you take the Bible literally YOU ARE LOST. Taking the Bible LITERALLY goes against every teaching of “Jesus” and if he was here he would be against you and HE would tell you how wrong you are. Read the damn book, it tells you it’s NOT LITERAL ALL THE WAY THROUGH IT. “Jesus never spoke unless it was an allagory…”, go look that up.
      None of you even mentioned or know that his name was first ABRAM and then BECAME Abra(H)am or that Sara became Sara(H)…or how, or why.
      As for thinking you know “who” Melchizedek was…give me a break. You have no idea.
      Give up or shut up.

      • HereAmI

        The Lord certainly spoke in allegorical terms, as He said, so that hearing, the people would not hear, etc.
        But when His disciples questioned certain things in the parables, He then explained to them exactly what He meant, in non-allegorical terms.
        Thus, your point is refuted.
        And are you suggesting that Melchizedek was not a “who”, but perhaps a “what”?
        A spaceship, maybe?
        We deserve to know.

        2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
        Ends that argument.

    • LAYNALAND

      Thankyou for the teaching…I have been interested in this fellow, Melchisedek, for some time now.

      The Lord has spoken to me, numerous times, that I am a priest, forever, after the order of Melchizedek.

      I thot the Lord God was talking about himself, when He spoke to me – but, now, I understand, that He was addressing me, as a servant-priestess…lol. Men being priests, women being priestesses. :idea:

    • bluesky

      The name Melchizedek means King of the just. King of Gods elect. Melcha means King, Zadok are the elect. It’s Jesus himself.

      • Jesus was Michael the archangel NOT melchizedak, he did also come from the tribe of Judah as written in the scripture the WORD our only weapon!!

        Read Daniel 12:1-2 At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered. 2 Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.

        there is only one GOD not 3 its plain as the nose on ones face as the WORD is the truth
        1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

        WHEN WE ALL PERISH (some of us will not) we become DUST we do not exist!!! we fall asleep until the time of the resurrection!!!!! John 5:28-29- Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,9 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

        ecclesiastes 9:10
        Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
        King James Version (KJV)

        HMMM only one GOD and one mediator…THE MAN Christ Jesus…sounds exactly that right there

        1 thessalonians 4:16For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

        Hebrews 6:20 where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.

        Hebrews 7:1-3 This Melchizedek was king of Salem and priest of God Most High. He met Abraham returning from the defeat of the kings and blessed him, 2 and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything. First, the name Melchizedek means “king of righteousness”; then also, “king of Salem” means “king of peace.” 3 Without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.

        hebrews 7:11-15 If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood—and indeed the law given to the people established that priesthood—why was there still need for another priest to come, one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron? 12 For when the priesthood is changed, the law must be changed also. 13 He of whom these things are said belonged to a different tribe, and no one from that tribe has ever served at the altar. 14 For it is clear that our Lord descended from Judah, and in regard to that tribe Moses said nothing about priests. 15 And what we have said is even more clear if another priest like Melchizedek appears,

        Matthew 24:36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son,[a] but the Father only.

        BIBLE STUDENTS NO AFFILIATION BIBLE STUDENTS got it nailed down

        CHARLES TAZE RUSSELL teachings are bang on…yes he made mistakes yes he was imperfect but his teachings are GOLD certified GOLD understanding the BIBLE is difficult but not when you RUN RUN RUN from catholicism and all the protestant phony dennominations…HE DIED 1916 having ZERO ZIPPO NADDD to do with the JEHOVAHS WITNESS pedophile scammer organization (not the little people on the groung, they are good people)

        THINK FOR YOURSELF and study the word with the fervancy of a Berean christian

        May GOD protect and have MERCY and undeeserved kindness

      Generally it is accepted that an older text written at the time of an event is more historically accurate than a newer text that is written much later. To shed a light on the the mystery it is beneficial to look at the Sumarian tablets, which were written thousands of years before the biblical story summaries were written, likely based on the older stories with alterations. First, one needs to know that Abraham was born a Sumarian. His Father was the high priest-king of the city Ur. His real name, ‘A.bram’ means ‘of Father beloved.’ The fact that his father wast a priest-king rather than just a priest, refers to purity of bloodline (kin is root of king). So essentially, the intermediatories between Mankind and God (or the godlike beings if you believe the sumarian tablets) were priests that came from a very special bloodline. Remember that at this time, the Hebrew and Arab bloodlines did not exist as Abram had not yet fathered his two sons and God had not yet ordained his blessing and changed his name to Abraham. So talk of Jew and Gentile is a little silly. Yes, Melchizidek was a gentile… just as Abram was a gentile… since there were no Jews!!! But they were gentiles of a very specific and pure bloodline. And as Abram’s father was the high priest-king of the holy city Ur, and Melchizidek was the priest-king of the Sumarian nation… I would take an educated guess and say that Melchizidek probably had the purest lineage of the chosen bloodlines of any human on the planet.

      That is just how it is, folks. I am not going to speculate on the soul identity of Melchizidek and whether he was a former incarnation of Jesus or whatever. However, I do want to draw attention to the fact that many on this board who seem to be Christians (an assumption I am making because of all the biblical references) are saying this so. It is a little humorous to me, because essentially you are ALL saying that ‘yes, reincarnation’ is real. I am not going to argue. While the current Prodestant/Catholic institutions say this is not the case… it is interesting to take a historical perspective and acknowledge that many of the early churches actually believed reincarnation to be the case.

      Melchizedek takes all who qualify for the Melchizedek Priesthood, he has first pick. Jesus Christ is the Marijuana buds which, due to procession come around once every 26k years for a time. Marijuana buds, free of seeds from the Virgin Marijuana plant were born in nature 2000 years ago. It’s all about the hemp and the buds. The hemp is our natural food and with it we don’t get disease. The buds create the healing oil, also known as the anointing oil or “The Blood of Christ. It’s real obvious. Here is a whole series of videos devoted to proving this. It becomes laughably obvious. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbHpZw1mqGA&list=PLuuvmwGxEJkXlOpm7Pgp-tPYGtytkZr15

      There are some interesting thoughts about Melchizedek from wikipedia . It brings out that possibly Melchizedek gave tithes to Abraham and also the priest- kingship . God does give Out blessings . Also in Second Enoch it states that he was born of virgin birth by Sofimin . She died before his birth , the child comes out and sets on the bed Beside her corpse , Already physically developed , clothed , speaking and blessing the Lord and marked with the badge of priesthood . Sofimin was the wife of Nir the brother of Noah who accused her of infediality because he had been away for awhile . Melchizedek was confirmed that He was of God . 40 days after His birth an angel took Him to the Garden of Eden and waited till after the flood to return Him . Now let me add my thoughts . Jesus we are told was also virgin born . In Genesis as Adam and Eve are being expelled from the Garden of Eden God tell the serpent that the seed of the woman was going to bruise his seeds head . And that they would bruise His heel . Note the seed of woman . Miss Laynaland brought out some interesting thoughts about the Ark of the Covenent and how Ron Wyatt found the Ark under the cross of Jesus and His blood on the mercy seat through the crack that the earth quake rent beneath the cross 20 ft. Down . The blood when tested had only 24 chromosomes not 46 . 23 belonged to a woman but no man input was there . The 24th showed that this person was a man . But the other missing ones showed no man was in the mix . Youtube has Ron Wyatts testamony of this . Now the Ark was taken away by God through Jerimiah and hid . Israel was told the Ark would be removed and they would not possess it again . But would see it in the last days . After Ron left the site Israel sent men down to retrieve it . But God took their lives . Ron had to return and tie ropes onto their feet so they could be drug out . No one can look on the Ark without Gods permission , that’s why they always had it covered when moving it . Plus it hid behind a curtain until once a year when the High priest would offer the sacrifice for the sins of Israel and see it . But if he was not right God would smite him . This was to remind them that He wanted Rightness and Holiness . The site is now concreted over , probly to protect the people from the Ark . Now here comes something that will really make you think . In Genesis 48-49 Joesph was given the greatest blessings of all of his brethren . His sons Ephraim and Manasseh was given the name Israel (not Judea ). Ephraim was also given the title of the one that Shiloh would come from . In his land the city Shiloh housed the Ark till David called it to Jerusalem . He was also told through Joesph his dad that through Him shall the sherpard come the stone of Israel . Remember Daniel the stone cut out of the mountains by God that destroys the kingdoms of the world . Well how can this be , because God also promised David that his seed ( sperm) would be King of Israel forever ? Now Isaiah speaks of two individals . One that comes with the voice of one crying in the wilderness ( John the baptist who when ask was he Elijah , he said no , that he was the voice of one crying in the wilderness ) Jesus who would not suffer until the end of his life and then die . Being God that walked on the waters and raised the dead He , Himself came to life after taking back the keys of death from Satan and allowing some of the prophets to rise with Him that went into the cities and told them what Jesus ( God )had done . And the other that would suffer all his life and then become King of Israel . So we have God coming and then a Son of a man coming . Jesus in Matthew 24 says that many will say that He is the Christ or anointed one , but believe it not , also in Luke too . Then later Jesus SAYS the son of man shall come with HIS angel and gather HIS elect, not Jesus but the Son of a man . Jesus is not the son of a man . Ok king Author was said to have married of the other tribe Ephraim and Judea were joined by his marriage , so I understand . Now David has to have sperm seed to be Israel’s king as well as Ephraim . So now we have the promise to Ephraim and Judea ( brothers that are from Jacob their father) to be King . Now the other individual comes with Elijah coming from Heaven to make the path straight and change the hearts . Then the individual is called up to heaven and crowned king and told by God this day have I begotten you . In Ezekiel 46 the prince or king of Israel comes into the eastern gate which is now closed but will be opened and offers his sacrifice to God ( the King of Kings )on the reestablished Sabboth day ( saturday) which God said was hollowed and established forever . In revelations God is in the Temple of the new Jersulam . The King of Israel ( prince of God ) in the old testament is said to rule the earth with a rod of iron durning the 1000 year reign . . Everyone will be made to worship YHVH (God) by the King of Israel . Those of God will enjoy Gods Fellowship . But the unbelieving will still have free will but will pay respect to God . The King of Usraelmwill show what God intended for man to be and enjoy . After the 1000 years of peace on Earth with no wars or allowing of evil , Satan will be loosed and he will gather those that have not truly excepted God and declare war on Gods chosen . This will end any attempt of evil after that , because God will step in and destroy them . No more evil to defile or destroy or hurt anymore . All will be peace forever and ever !!! And Satan will have used up all of any chances to have repented or changed . But God knew that he would not except Him as King and creator of all . Gods mercy endured for along time . But when Satan goes out to destroy all of Gods people then the end finally will come for him . He will be given a 1000 years bound to think about himself . But in the end it will still be all about him or so he will think !
