- "For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God,
...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
- - Hebrews 7:1-3
The ancient texts tell us of the supernatural conflict between the side of
light against the darkness of evil. Our fight is not with our fellow man, and Ephesians 6:12
(NKJV) puts it in black and
white: "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."
Our story begins in the
time of Abraham when spirituality was more black and white.
During this time there were two basic religious orders: The Order of
Melchizedek - they are the Rites to live for, and the Babylonian Order - they
are the rites "to die for." Throughout the centuries all the
pagan religions can trace their roots back to the Babylonian order (Gen.ch.11). It is the school of the dark rites that teach you 101 ways to feel
cheap and used.
The Bible talks of two churches.
The local church is the earthly
Believers, and the Universal Church is the higher Heavenly Order. The
ancient Covenant Rites given by our CREATOR, are but small
pictures of this greater spiritual puzzle of the Melchizedek Order. Its
full heavenly purpose, responsibilities, duties, and rewards, are still a
mystery*. One reward we do know of - it is energized by the power of
endless life (Heb.7:15).
(*For example: Since the time of Abraham, one piece (lesson) of this greater spiritual puzzle
admonishes us to help our neighbor, (Luk:10:30-37). Under the
Melchizedek order this might mean to help your intergalactic neighbor - and if
you thought your earthly neighbor was a little weird, you ain't see nothin' yet!
The v-e-r-y ancient spiritual order of Melchizedek is first mentioned in the
Bible in Genesis 14:18. Melchizedek was the Priest of the most high GOD
and the opening quote reveals more mysteries about this figure then it
answers. One thing is for sure, whomever Abraham paid GODLY respect to
might have looked like a man, but his pedigree was not of this world.
Bread and wine
are ancient GODLY symbols.
- " Then Melchizedek
king of Salem
brought out bread and wine;
he was the priest of God Most High."
The Melchizedek Order is shrouded in mystery, and good information on it is
scarce. The word "order" means a body of people united by some
common bond. That common bond in this case is our CREATOR. This is a
Divine Order, it is not arbitrary. It is based on our CREATOR'S
Heart. It is the one that all the members of the Heavenly societies -
"angels and strange creatures" - keep.
The beginning of understanding is, as always, with the name first. The
word "Malki-Tzedek," is two separate Hebrew words which mean king, and
right or just. The two words together mean king of righteousness (Strong's
Hebrew Dictionary #4428, 6664, 4442).
Melchizedek was directly
appointed by YAHWEH to be King of Righteousness and King of Salem. In
Hebrew, Salem means peaceful. Jerusalem means founded in
peace, (Strong's Hebrew Dictionary #3389). Most Biblical scholars believe it means that he was
King of the
area we know today as Jerusalem (Ps.76:1-2). Jerusalem is the Holy City of
the Bible, no other holy book of any other religion mentions
Melchizedek was the Priest of the
most high GOD. He was the first messianic 'like'
figure recorded to occupy the area known today as Jerusalem. He also had the rare title of
King-Priest, which will be used in the future by the prophesied Messiah (Ps.ch.110).
Melchizedek Order is important to the Messianic church
Yahshua is the High Priest of the ancient Rites
according to the order "Malki-Tzedek," or in English,
Melchizedek, Hebrews 6:20. This mysterious order, first mentioned in Genesis
14:18, and is referenced eight times in the Bible (Gen.14:18-20;
Ps.110:4; Heb.5:6,10, 6:20, 7:11, 17, 21). Coincidently, eight is the Biblical
number of new beginnings (1Pet.3:20; Gen.17:12; 1Sam.16:1-12).
*BEWARE: Melchizedek is a Sacred Order not of this world. The earthly
Believers are a peculiar treasure, kings and priests in training for this
Heavenly Order (Exo.19:5-6; 1Pet.2:9). No mere mortal can change this Order, nor
can anyone take this honor to himself (Heb.5:4). In other words once you
get your "wings," then you will become part of this Heavenly Order -
but not until then.

of our CREATOR
FYI - Judea / Palestine: Many
today will say Christianity spread from Palestine - this is simply not
true. Technically speaking, the name Palestine was invented in the year
135 C.E. Until then, back to the time of the Land
Covenant Deu.ch.29-30, the area around Jerusalem was known as Judea, which was the southern
kingdom of ancient Israel.
In the year 132 C.E. the final
break between the Jews and Christians happened when a Jewish military
leader Simeon-Bar Kochba, which means a son of the star, had in mind to
conquer the Romans and restore the kingdom to Israel. When he was
organizing the "Second Revolt" against the Roman government,
he wanted the Christian gentiles to join in the fight. He was a strong
leader and his followers called him the messiah, and said Jesus was only
a slave. The Christians turned off by his blasphemy did not help in the
fight. For two years the Jews put up a valiant fight, but eventually the
Romans gathered an enormous army and they were overrun and slaughtered
without mercy. The ancient records say 580,000 Jewish soldiers fell by
the sword alone, the horses of Romans were wading in bloody mud up to
their girths. This event triggered the final divorce between the gentile
Christian Church of the west and its Jewish roots.
In the year 135 C.E. the victorious
Roman Emperor Hadrian ordered the diaspora, the final solution to
the Jewish problem, which banned all Jews from Jerusalem and Israel. As
the Roman slave markets became glutted with Jewish captives, he ordered
the name of the land changed from Judea to Palestine, taking the name
from Israelís ancient enemy the Philistines. He destroyed anything
Jewish, their scrolls, books and their precious Torah. He defiled all
the Jewish religious sites, on the Temple mount he built a Shrine to
Jupiter, and over the Church of the Nativity he built a shrine to Venus.
To continue to call Judea,
Palestine, means you are a party to the lie, and agree with the diaspora
started by this vile Roman emperor. To those defenders of orthodoxy, who
would argue in favor of continuing to call the area Palestine, answer me
this: Emperor Hadrian also renamed Jerusalem, Aelia Capitalina,
yet this name was dumped in favor of the original name Jerusalem. Why is
the same not done for the name Palestine?

|deror: or "pardon."
"time." Hebrew word has same connotations of English
|El: ms. varies from
Massoretic text, which has here: YHWH ("Lord").
|lit: "Melek is your

identification of Melchizedek with passages in the Psalms referring
to "God," it is unclear whether he read it as a
proclamation that God is king or that Melchizedek is divine.
