Who is Melchisedec Spiritually? – Part 2

[Study Aired May 8, 2020]

Heb 7:1  For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;
Heb 7:2  To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;
Heb 7:3  Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

Christ is the King of Peace because He is the Priest from the Most High God, Who came to earth to intercede for His people who would follow in His lineage. Like our Creator, we do not have some sort of literal lineage we were called from that made us priests according to the order of Melchisedec. We are priests because we were called in Christ before the world began. We have been taught to give a tenth, symbolic of the whole of the flesh to God; not in some monkish way, or Catholic kind of doctrine, but in truth where all that has ever been, is now, or will ever come from you ordained to be so, good or evil is ascribed to God.

Heb 7:4  Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.

The tenth of the spoils, mentioned in the above verse, came from the killing of the Babylonian kings. What was the tenth? It typified the completion of the flesh knowing that all which led up to, came from and will come from that war, was from God. God created the very false church from which we are called to defeat in war, to save our next of kin, the world, who are covered by a “veil” or “covering” the definition for Lot’s name from the Browns-Driver -Briggs dictionary- H3876- Strong’s H3875. Abram’s nephew, Lot represents the rest of the world, inwardly first, which must be saved from Babylon and then go through the fire to cleanse them from the licentious spirit we end up in after being saved from Babylon, called Sodom, H5467- “burning”, (Strong’s).

Abram’s nephew, Lot, represents the rest of the world, inwardly first, which must be saved from Babylon and then go through the fire of Sodom and Gomorrah to cleanse them from the licentious spirit with which we end after being saved from Babylon. After being saved from Babylon, we end up in a lawless state where we think freedom comes in living a life in the flesh and chasing the appetites of the flesh, because we have been freed from Babylonian rule.

Gen 14:4  Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.

Gen 14:8  And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar;) and they joined battle with them in the vale of Siddim;
Gen 14:9  With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four kings with five.
Gen 14:10  And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain.
Gen 14:11  And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and went their way.
Gen 14:12  And they took Lot, Abram’s brother’s son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed. [Our next of kin is taken by the doctrine of Babylon.]
Gen 14:13  And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram.
Gen 14:14  And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan.
Gen 14:15  And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus.
Gen 14:16  And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people.

It is here in this place, after being freed from Babylon, we are met by Melchisedec. This is to be seen as the time when we see Christ as Priest and see ourselves as offering all that we are to Him, the tenth of the spoils. It is here we see that the promise made to us came 430 spiritual years before the law of the flesh was ever given.

Heb 7:5  And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:

The literal churches receive tithes from the people, even though they all come from the same lineage. However, when we come out of her and are shown our lineage is not from any Babylonian doctrinal lineage, but of Christ, we receive the tithes from the world, WHY? Why do we receive tithes from the world, a tenth of the spoil? How do we receive them? We receive tithes from the world, in that the completion of the world’s flesh is sacrificed for us. They themselves are the sacrifice from which we feed off. They are the spoils we have obtained in defeating the king of Babylon, Chedorlaomer, “servant of Lagamar”. We now see that all is for us, all is for our learning, all is for us to be created into the image of Christ. Melchisedec is Christ to us, and we are Melchisedec to the world which will be saved in the lake of fire. We go through the fiery trials now in this life, and the rest of the world goes through the lake of fire in the age to come called the white throne judgment. As Abram’s nephew Lot was saved from Babylon only to have to go through the fires of Sodom and Gomorrah, so the world will be saved from death by going through the death of the carnal mind in the lake of fire.

Luk 17:28  Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
Luk 17:29  But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
Luk 17:30  Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. [They will be eating, drinking, buying, selling, planting and building the doctrines of Babylon, until we, the elect, are taken out of the world in the flesh and revealed in the spirit, (1Th 4-16-18])

We know there is an inward application to us when we are released from Babylon and go into a rebellious spirit, where we live a life freed from Babylon but of rebellion against God. This is where we are tried by the fiery trials which burn up all that Sodom and Gomorrah spirit in us in this aion/eon. It is all done for the purpose of us seeing ourselves in Christ before the world began and becoming Melchisedec to the world, our next of kin called Lot, who is veiled or covered right now. The Christian community is typified by the tribe of Levi who are given their priesthood according to DOCTRINAL LINEAGE and take tithes from the people according to the law of Moses. They claim freedom from the law, but at the same time enslave the congregants to the law through tithes, holidays (holy days), and sabbaths. Christ did not form this priesthood for the elect, but for the same reason He created Babylon of old, to veil and cover the true descendants of the Melchissedec priesthood. Notice the next verse.

Heb 7:6  But he [Melchisedec] whose descent is not counted from them [Levitical priesthood- Christianity] received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.
Heb 7:7  And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.

We must remember that all scripture has a positive and negative application. Each positive and negative application is interchangeable whenever the Spirit of God is uncovering or unveiling something to us. So, in verse 6 it is telling us that the Christian is the Levitical priesthood, and Christ in us is Melchisedec. Although Christianity receives tithes from the people, they are really paying tithes to us. We are the beneficiaries of all their work, the whole of it, the tenth of the tithe. We, who are not counted from among them, because we have come out from Babylon, are receiving the blessings from God in Christ. No one knows it, because it is at this time veiled to the world. We are as Lot, living in Sodom, the world, and it is veiled to the world around us. It will be evident to the world when we are freed from Sodom in a hail of fiery trials, that separate us from the world. Sodom in us is destroyed by these fiery trials, and from that we start a new life. In the other typification, the world is Lot, our next of kin, who after going through the lake of fire are freed from the carnal mind of Sodom.

Heb 7:8  And here men that die receive tithes [Levitical priesthood/Christianity]; but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth. [The Christ]
Heb 7:9  And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.
Heb 7:10  For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him. [they are still in our loins, while we are being met by Christ, they are not yet born.]
Heb 7:11  If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?

This last verse is a huge statement. If perfection were by what the world knows as Christianity, then why was there a need for us? If the substitutionary death of Christ took care of it all, why are we being called after the order of Christ? Why are we being told to come out of her if she is perfect? If Christainity is the levitical priesthood instituted by God, why are we being told to come out of it? Why are we told she is the habitation of all that is evil, if she is perfected? Why are we told she is to be rewarded for all the evil with which she has glorified herself? These next verses are speaking to this very Levitical priesthood called Christianity.

Rev 18:1  And after these things [what things? when we see her for what she is in ourselves] I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
Rev 18:2  And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen [We see her for what she is and what lies we have been told.], and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
Rev 18:3  For all nations [seen inwardly first before we can see it outwardly] have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
Rev 18:4  And I heard another voice from heaven [this next voice is the voice we hear when are crushed to the truth of who we are. We then without hesitation flee the great whore who has enslaved us with her fornicating doctrines.], saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. [There is no hesitation. We run from her and as far from her as we can run, because the fire and brimstone from heaven is coming to devour all she thought she was in Sodom.]
Rev 18:5  For her sins have reached unto heaven [Gen 18:17-21], and God hath remembered her iniquities [Eze 33:13].
Rev 18:6  Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. [expose her lies, when given the chance]
Rev 18:7  How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
Rev 18:8  Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
Rev 18:9  And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
Rev 18:10  Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

If the Levitical priesthood represents Christianity, why are we being told to flee her? Why are we being told she houses hateful birds/spirits? Why is she being judged, if, according to her own words, she was already judged in the substitutional death of Christ two thousand years ago? In reality, she was not judged. She was created to feed us, and that feeding is to teach us.

Rev 19:17  And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 
Rev 19:18  That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. 

Heb 7:12  For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

If the promise we have came from some doctrinal lineage we had in religion, then Christ would avail us nothing, because righteousness would have come through a denomination and not faith. If I am what I am because I was baptized in a Southern Baptist doctrine, then Christ died in vain, and my doctrinal belief saves me. Add any denomination to that line, and you get the same thing. The point is this; we have not come to know what we know because of any religious denomination, but because we were called and chosen after the Melchisedec order, Who has no beginning in doctrinal lineage or ending, but is before them all, a Priest of the Most High God. We are from the lineage of Christ and through the lineage of Christ, which means through the doctrine of Christ, priests according to the order of Melchisedec. We are priests after the order of Melchisedec/Christ to the world.

Heb 7:13  For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
Heb 7:14  For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
Heb 7:15  And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,
Heb 7:16  Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
Heb 7:17  For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
Heb 7:18  For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.
Heb 7:19  For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.

We must understand the gravity of these verses. Christ’s flesh came through the literal tribe of Judah, where nothing was said of priesthood or interceding for the people. It was done this way because the death of the flesh of Christ announces the true way of the Priest Melchisedec, called of God, not according to some doctrinal belief in religion, but according to the order of Melchisedec, and without doctrinal beginning or doctrinal end. Why must there come a Priest according to this order? Because the first order is according to the flesh, and the flesh is sin. The first order could not make anyone perfect according to the flesh, yet the priests who serve these denominations think they do make people/flesh perfect. They do believe that they have the truth in the flesh and that their flesh will inherit a life without end on a rock in space called heaven. So, all religion is disannulled and done away with because of the weakness of the flesh and unprofitableness of it. No one has, is or will ever make flesh perfect or acceptable to God. No doctrine in this world has, is or will make believers. Either you are called and chosen before the world began to be a priest according to the order of Christ, or you were not. We do not see what we see because we were close and God gave us a push to get all the way. We do not see what we see because we came through any doctrinal system. If we see, we see because we were called and chosen to see and for no other reason. This hope draws us close to God because it rules out all flesh and puts the hope in the promise of God which He swore by Himself, because there is no greater than Himself.

Heb 7:20  And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest:
Heb 7:21  (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec)
Heb 7:22  By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.

We will be priests to the world, to make intercession for them to Christ, Who is our Head and to Whom we are all perfectly joined as His body. He is called a Priest after the order of and according to the doctrine of God, the Father whose doctrine has no beginning or ending in man, but an everlasting doctrine outside of the flesh. The whole of religion was created for us to compare and to act as a type and figure that Christ would show us was a weak and unprofitable system. The whole of Christianity was created for us to come out of and to denounce as a false religion when it comes to the truth of God. No high priest could come through these doctrinal beliefs because they all revolved around the flesh. We are being shown that the truth is we were called in Christ before the world began, and the doctrine we have been given is from above, outside of all religious doctrinal belief. It is a new and living way that only those who are called in Christ, called after the order of Melchisedec, have the privilege to know and understand.

Heb 7:23  And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:
Heb 7:24  But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
Heb 7:25  Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

There were, and are, “many priests”. Many Christian doctrines have come from the literal law of the commandments, but were not allowed to continue because of the weakness and unprofitableness of them, because of death. No doctrine that has been made from the literal law of commandments can continue because they are all founded on death, because the law kills.

Rom 7:9  For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.

Rom 5:13  (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.

We cannot forget that Melchisedec met Abram and blessed him over 400 years before the law ever entered. The promise to Abram was given before the law ever entered, but Christianity takes the very law that has killed us and makes a religion out of it. They/we do the same thing the literal Jews did; try to be holy before God by the law of death.

Rom 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

1Co 15:56  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

Heb 7:26  For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
Heb 7:27  Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.
Heb 7:28  For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

Christ was High Priest before there was a high priest according to the law of the flesh. Remember the law was added to make sin abound and get worse, to show us we have nothing to offer God, nor have nothing we can create that can make us righteous by the law that points to our continual sin.

Rom 5:20  Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound [this includes the offense of Babylon]. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
Rom 5:21  That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

1Ti 1:9  Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
1Ti 1:10  For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine
1Ti 1:11  According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

Sound doctrine says we are sinners through and through, and there is nothing which comes from the flesh that can make us whole. We cannot, by any of the 40,000 Christian denominations, make ourselves whole and right before God. We cannot by any doctrine founded on the law of the flesh, given by the high priests of our day called pastors, who minister in their brick and mortar temples, that can make the comers thereunto perfect. None of them can take us into their “holy of holies” called the sanctuary and through a ten-second sinner’s prayer make us right before God. All Babylonian doctrine that has come from a fleshly doctrine, based on the law of the commandments, has come because as the law. They were added so that the sin of self-righteousness would abound. They were added to separate us, who have come in the order of Melchisedec, from the doctrines of men and establish us on the doctrine of Christ that was founded without beginning and without end in Christ. The doctrine of promise was given IN WHOLE and in completion of the perfection of the new man before the PROCESS OF JUDGMENT of the flesh had entered – 430 years later.

Gal 3:16  Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ
Gal 3:17  And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
Gal 3:18  For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.

The promise to us, that we were wholly complete in the new man, was complete before the process of the judgment of the flesh ever came. As the law of the flesh was added to make sin abound and get worse, so the doctrines based off that law, called Christendom, were added to make the self-righteousness abound in them. All doctrines of modern day Christianity are based on the law of the flesh – ALL DOCTRINES OF CHRISTIANITY. The doctrine of Christ, with which we are called, has no beginning and has no end because God the Father created it before the world had a beginning, and it will last after the world has an end. We, the SEED of Abraham, are called after that doctrine in the order of Melchisedec. Christ is our High Priest Who has made intercession for us according to the promise that we are His heirs according to the promise. He does not need to offer Himself many times for us, because He offered Himself once for the sins of all. We need not, as I have done again and again, have rededication ceremonies to Christ as though we have the power to end the promise or to start the promise. If we are given to believe that Christ is our High Priest, then we are given to know that what He has done once was sufficent forever. Once you end that statement with “BUT”, you have just strayed from the promise that had no beginning or ending.

Heb 7:27  Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.
Heb 7:28  For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

“The law” makes men high priests which have “infirmity”. The very law that says we are sinners also appoints sinners over sinners! Sinners making intercession to God from sinful mouths which are stained with the sinful doctrines that proceed from their sinful heart! The law of the flesh made men intercede for men by offering bulls and goats for their sins and also for the sins of the priests themselves who are making the offering. Take that literal law, according to the Levitical priesthood, and apply it spiritually to what has been going on for two thousand years since the resurrection of Christ. Satan has been given the authority to blind the hearts and minds of the entire world by instituting a religion based off the promise but not founded on the promise. This doctrine says we are saved by grace but we must establish ourselves by works. He does not allow the world to see that grace is chastening and not some free thing that makes us perfect. Grace to the world is forgiveness without penalty. It is substitutional death, a doctrine based on a lie mixed with truth. We are the children of God before the world began, because we were promised to Him by the Father, and nothing can change that. Religion says that if you are in Christ, then you should not be having any problems, and if you are, it is because you are sinning and need to rededicate your life to God. The truth is we are formed by trials. These trials and temptations are sent for our perfection, to allow us to be chastened by them, to create us into the priest we have been called to be to the world. Grace is not some get-out-of-jail-free card. It is salvation by grace, salvation from the false doctrine based on works of the flesh, salvation from death and salvation from my own flesh. Chastening grace says we are created by these trials which are uniquely made for us to be formed. It is by these trials in the world that we rise out of the seas of men and allow all the world to stand on this truth.

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Gen 1:3  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Gen 1:9  And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
Gen 1:10  And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:11  And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
Gen 1:12  And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

In Christ, we are that EARTH rising up out of the death of the world. We are the Promised SEED. We are what Christ, the Head, will use to bring forth fruit upon the earth. He has started with us and will fill the earth with us.
