ABRAHAM – PART 17
MELCHIZEDEK’S IDENTITY
 
Melchizedek was the Priest and King of Salem, the future Jeru-Salem, the “City of God” from which Jesus, our High Priest and King shall also rule.
 
Both the Jewish view that Melchizedek was Noah’s son Shem, and the liberal scholars’ suggestion that he was a former Chaldean who had known Abram’s family hold no credibility when scripture is examined. Conservative scholars, as well as this ministry, hold a biblical view that he was a pre-incarnate form of Jesus. This can be seen in both the Old and the New Testaments.
 
Psalm 110 is a Messianic Psalm. Verse one says, “The LORD (Jehovah; Yahweh) said unto my Lord (Adonai; Jesus) ‘Sit at my right hand until I make Your enemies Your footstool’” (NKJV) Verses two and three speak of the strength and power of “My Lord” to rule from Zion (Jerusalem). Then verse four further says, “Yahweh has sworn…’You are a Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.’”
 
The priestly order of Aaron was human in origin, born of Adam’s line with earthly fathers. They are born, they live, then they die. They have no power; they administer the rituals of the Mosaic law. Psalm 110 is clear that the “Lord” spoken of will have great power to strike down earthly kings and to judge the heathen. Jesus brings fulfillment to all of this. Yet He is clearly linked to Melchizedek who was Priest and King of the “Most High God” nearly two thousand years before Jesus’ birth just outside of Jerusalem in Bethlehem.
 
Now let us consider the New Testament writing of Paul in Hebrews. Paul was highly educated and knew scripture thoroughly. After his conversion, Holy Spirit spent three years teaching him the understanding of fulfilled scripture while he was sequestered in the Arabian wilderness. He gained understanding directly from God beyond what other apostles knew.
 
In Hebrews 5:5-10 Paul speaks of Christ made by God as our high priest…after the order (or manner of) Melchizedek. It is reiterated in Hebrews 6:20, “…Jesus, made an high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” Hebrews chapter seven then goes into detailed explanation, starting with Abraham’s encounter. The name “Melchizedek” means “King of Righteousness.” Jesus is “Righteousness.” He was also “King of Salem” which means “King of Peace.” Jesus is our peace. Verse 3 also says Melchizedek was “Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life, but made like unto the Son of God, (and) abideth a priest continually (forever).” Verse 6 also repeats that Melchizedek descended from no human. Melchizedek had no human forebears and no human descendants. He abides (lives) as a high priest forever (vs. 3). 
 
It is clear by scripture that Jesus had appeared on earth in human form in the personage of Melchizedek. He blessed Abraham in person and shared “communion” with him.

HALTING BETWEEN TWO OPINIONS
 
In I Kings 18 we the story of Elijah confronting the prophets of Baal that had been brought into Israel by King Ahab’s evil wife Jezebel. Elijah challenged the people to make a choice to follow Jehovah God or follow Baal. Whichever God would burn up a sacrifice would be the most powerful.  In verse 21 it says, “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt (dance, leap, skip) between two opinions? If the LORD be God, follow Him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.”
 
Baal of course, was a demonic false god that could not speak and no matter what his followers did, the sacrifice did not burn. Elijah commanded the people to pour water on the sacrifice and called on the God of Israel, Jehovah to consume the sacrifice, and that is exactly what happened. In spite of the wood being totally wet, the fire of God fell from Heaven and consumed the sacrifice. The interesting thing is that the people never made the choice who to follow until they saw God do the miracle. They were content with the evil in their land. They had been deceived and fearful of Jezebel. When they saw this miracle happen then they fell on their faces which represents surrender, and Elijah destroyed all the prophets of Baal.
 
America is at a crossroads. The spirit of Baal is in our land. What is that spirit? It killed innocent babies and children by sacrificing them. The spirit of Baal is behind abortion. The other spirit is the homosexual spirit that was present in the days of Noah and the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. Our country has allowed these two spirits in and it has run rampant. What’s more, the Democratic party has made it clear that they side with both of these evil spirits that God hates.
 
We will see with the election coming this next week whether the citizens of our country will go with God or Baal. There are those that previously were involved with these spirits and have repented. God will not hold them guilty. But for those that are determined to go the way of Baal and not repent, there will be a rude awakening. Just like those false prophets that said that Baal should be served and then were put to death, there will be a reckoning for those that side with the party that endorses Baal. I see this so clearly. I pray that those that have chosen the wrong ideology will repent. You can’t have it both ways. You either serve God and the party that is closest to what God stands for or you serve Baal. 
 
This is not about the people running for office. This is about what their platform stands for. Many in Elijah’s day were ignorant, but they still suffered the consequences of wrong choices. And you? Why halt (dance, skip, leap) between two opinions. Either go all the way with God or choose to reject him at the voting booth.
