Prophecy of Messiah:

Gen 14:18  And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

Welcome back! 😀 If this is your first visit, I’m glad you decided to spend some time here to read about my favorite subject: the Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua our Messiah! I absolutely love today’s topic! I learned about this not long after I was first saved and it is the very topic that got me interested in the different names for God. One of those names is in today’s verse!

Let’s take a look at what we can learn about Melchizedek, the priest of the most high God. First off, he’s the priest of the most high God. Jesus is the High Priest of God (Hebrews 4:14). We know that Abraham brought tithes to him (Genesis 14:20). We tithe to God, not to man (Malachi 3:8); it is in obedience to God, giving Him back in thanks for all that He has provided. Yes, our tithes help to support our church and its work. However, if we are only tithing so that the church recognizes that we have, we are tithing for the wrong reasons, amen? Melchizedek was a theophany of Jesus Christ. A theophany is the physical manifestation of God to man. Melchizedek accepted tithes; he brought forth bread and wine; and he was the priest of the most high God. All three of these are true of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Prophecy of Messiah Fulfilled:

Heb 6:20  Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

I love that Melchizedek brought forth bread and wine; we see a wonderful picture of Jesus’ own body and blood brought to us in the Old Testament to be shed for us in the New Testament. It was taught from the beginning with Adam and Eve all the way through the New Testament, Reader! We see the wonderful sacrifice through Jesus Christ, to forgive all sins for all those who believe on Him. Since we are born again and read our Scriptures, we are wondrously able to see the gold nuggets that God gives to us! 😀 Praise You, Lord! (Psalm 9:1)

Mat 26:26-28  And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.  (27)  And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;  (28)  For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

The Scriptures do not stand alone; each verse intertwines with other Scriptures revealing God’s love and mercy for His creation! The Bible, despite being written by different men in totally different times, contains no errors but only truth (Psalm 119:160, John 17:17). I found an interesting article at Answers in Genesis which expounds on the Bible’s uniqueness and inerrancy and I hope you enjoy it! It only solidifies the facts about its authority!

But friend, if you have managed to read through this entire post and you realize that you don’t know Jesus Christ in a personal way, it is not a coincidence. God has led you here so you can be led to Him. The prophecy of Genesis 14:18 is fulfilled by the One and Only Saviour of mankind, our Lord Jesus Christ, High Priest after the order of Melchizedek! Do you know Him personally or do you only know of Him? I want to be sure that anyone who reads the posts on this blog can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are going to Heaven. Have you received Christ as your Saviour? If no, your sins are not covered by His sacrificial offering of Himself. You have not been redeemed by His blood. It is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already.
