Melchisedec king of peace the Holy Spirit

By J N Loughborough

Melchisedec the King of Peace, the King Of Righteousness, the Holy Spirit (Hebrews 7:2 & 3)

We read in the holy writings that the Holy Spirit is an eternal heavenly being. He is called the Comforter but He is also called the third person of the Godhead by Ellen White. She says he is a very real eternal being himself and not just part of the other two personages of the Godhead, God the Father or God the Son or some essence that floats around from off of them. The three of them are all in co-partnership. The Bible teaches that the Father is the Most High as He is called that all through the Old Testament’s book of Daniel. Examples of the many places recorded there are such verses as Dan.4:24 and 34, 7:18, 22, and 27 to show just a few. In the New Testament a second witness is John who records for us more words on it.

The Order of Melchisedec – Stephen Haskell South Lancaster Papers

By Stephen Haskell

“Who is Melchisedec?  He is the one that fills all the specifications the Bible gives of Melchisedec.

  1. He was a man “Consider how great the man was.” Hebrews 7:4.
  2. He was a king.  “King of righteousness.” “King of Salem, which is King of Peace. Verse 2.
  3. He “was priest of the most high God.” Verse 1.
  4. He “abideth a priest continually.” Verse 3.
  5. He was greater than Abraham, for Abraham paid tithes to him, “and without contradiction the less is blessed of the greater.” Verses 4-7.
  6. Abraham received the promises, therefore Melchisedec was greater than the one who received the promises of God.
  7. He is the one “of whom it is witnessed that He liveth.” Verse 8.
  8. He was made “like unto the Son of God,” and therefore was not the Son of God.” Verse 3.
  9. He was without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life.” Verse 3. Read the rest of this entry

Why is there so much confusion as to the identity of Melchizedek?

By Present Truth NZ

Why is there so much confusion as to the identity of Melchizedek? The Scriptures are very clear on this matter of identifying just who Melchizedek is. If we took the Bible just as it reads, and particularly the very distinct identifying characteristics of Melchizedek given in the book of Hebrews, instead of placing human conjectures upon God’s Word, we would all know very definitely who Melchizedek is.

Christ, a Priest after the order of Melchisedec

0809106

By John Thiel

Christ was a priest after the order of Melchisedec. To get a correct understanding of Jesus priesthood, we need to understand the order of Melchisedec. Who was Melchisedec? He was a king of Salem. Salem was Jerusalem. Later on, King David adopted the city.

As soon as David was established on the throne of Israel he began to seek a more appropriate location for the capital of his realm. Twenty miles from Hebron a place was selected as the future metropolis of the kingdom. Before Joshua had led the armies of Israel over Jordan it had been called Salem. Near this place Abraham had proved his loyalty to God. Eight hundred years before the coronation of David it had been the home of Melchizedek, the priest of the most high God. It held a central and elevated position in the country and was protected by an environment of hills. Being on the border between Benjamin and Judah, it was in close proximity to Ephraim and was easy of access to the other tribes. {PP 703.1} Read the rest of this entry

Melchizedek (meaning king of righteousness) was the King of Salem (meaning Peace) and priest of the most high God. The book of Genesis records that after Abraham rescued his nephew Lot from the King of Elam, Melchizedek brought bread and wine to Abraham, blessed him, and received tithes (a 10th of all the spoil of war) from Abraham.

MelchizidekLetter (1)

By Ellen White

At a council meeting at Avondale School, about the year 1893, there were present Elders Haskell, F.L.H. Baker, G.B. Starr, and their wives, and Sister E.G. White, also W.A. Colcord, who was the editor of the Australian Signs of the Times.

Elder Colcord requested the privilege of reading some articles regarding the personality of Melchisedec. We all listened as he read and were surprised that Sister White listened also, with seeming interest, as she was not accustomed to listening to any argumentative writings.
