Who was Melchizedek?

1 Feb

Melchizedek-of-Salem Hebrews 7:1-3 18:21, “For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being translated “king of righteousness,” and then also king of Salem, meaning “king of peace,”  without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually.” Who was Melchizedek? This mysterious Priest who appears in the book of Hebrews is in actuality not so mysterious. In the Holy Scriptures God is always giving examples to those who are lost to the redemption found in Jesus Christ. Melchizedek is a “type,” of Christ to given as an example or to foreshadow the Messiah. In this same breath we as Believers are examples of Jesus in the modern day displaying love, kindnes and truth to the world. John the Baptist was also a foreshadower of Jesus Christ in the wilderness baptizing by water to give a example of the baptism of the Holy Spirit Jesus would present. Melchizedek is presented in a higher spiritual state state by blessing Abraham in verse 1. The tithe paid represents the “sin,” debt in which we are so honored the Lord took from us. In the same way today, we pay tithes in giving our lives totally over to the Holy Spirit of God. To be used by God for His purpose. Verse 3 says Melchizedek was “without Father or Mother,” this is not meant He did not have a natural father and Mother but that the lineage of Melchizedek was hidden by way of the Holy Spirit to furthur present him as a type of Christ. The Mechizedek Priest was needed to enlighthen the people of that day, who did not have the Holy Bible written for them at that time. With the use of computers and technology we have the ability to read a interpret the Word of God, but still have powerful men and women who guide us as examples. Martin Luther King presents a type of Moses who began the Civil Rights movement by way of God. As stated before John the Baptist was a type of Christ, as well as the Disciples. Displaying miracles, signs and wonders after the resurrection of Jesus. Most importantly we are important examples of Jesus in the modern age in being a light unto the world. Satan in the end times will elevate the Anti-Christ who will be a demonic type of Christ to deceive the world. I praise the Most High, for giving each and every man and women not only Jesus but also examples to lead us to him for redemption. Shalom…
