How is Melchizedek related to Jesus, and to you?

Dear Reader

To prepare you for the next set of scriptures concerning how to be a cedar of Lebanon we need to take a look at Melchizedek first to set in place a proper biblical foundation.

Hebrews 7:1-3 For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, and to him Abraham apportioned a tenth part of everything. He is first, by translation of his name, king of righteousness, and then he is also king of Salem, that is, king of peace. He is without father or mother or genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but resembling the Son of God he continues a priest forever.

Melchizedek the King of righteousness and King of peace is also a Priest. This king priest refers to Jesus.

Heb 5:5 So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest, but was appointed by him who said to him, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”;

as he says also in another place, "You are a priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek."

The verse above ties Jesus with Melchizedek. Notice that Abraham tithed to Melchizedek - the king priest.

When Melchizedek went to Abraham what did he bring with him ? This detail is very important. Go check it out and we will dig deeper next time.

You are highly favored !
