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;
Salem= means Peace at its root Hebrew# 8004/8003 (king of peace)/ Greek #4532
Of Hebrew origin ---> [H8004]<----; Salem (that is, Shalem), a place in "Palestine"/ Israel (Early name for Jerusalem) which is the captial of the kingdom of Israel (Yeshua is the Messiah /King of Israel and the Only king of Peace): - Salem.
Melchisedec = “King of Righteousness”, King of the upright, King of the just, King of kings and Lord of lords-
Only one qualifies as such!!! And Moshiach is Adon (Olam)
During times of old this title was used as frequently as the term priest, judge, rabbi or pastor today. Thus many men were also called Melchisedec. The true Melchisedec was no man (he was Christ before flesh birth) Heb.7:3. "without father, without mother, without descent having neither beginning of days, nor end of life" Spiritual not flesh. "made like unto the Son of God" (* Heb.1:1-5 !!!!/Daniel 3:25 (Gen.18:1; 32:27-29; 21:12... ). He was Yeshua (Adon Moshiach, The Christ) Before flesh Birth! ( Heb.2:14)
Heb.7:1-4/ Abraham gave tithes to Melchisedec and refused reward from the earthly king of Sodom (Gen.14:17-23)). Heb.7:9-28 shows this was the Priest over the Levitical (Aaronic) priesthood.
Note the tribe of Levi came from Abraham. (Prov. 7:4-15, 17, 21/ Gen.14:16,22/ Ps.110/ Heb.5:5-10)
Who comes before Christ? Nobody! (John 1:1)
Heb.6:20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
NOTE: Christ told the Pharises how he had known Abram and they understood not seeing as Christ was born long after Abraham had passed over.
John 8:56-58 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
Abraham met with him during his own life in the flesh, remember Heb.7:1???
When Christ asended from the mount of transfiguration he was accompanied by two others! When Mel. appeared to Abram he was accompanied by two men (angels)- Gen. 18-19/ Matt.17:1-3/ Mk.9:4
Heb.13:2/ Man is made in the same image as the angels (Gen.1:26-27) in the present age when such are Born of water (women). during the exodus angels food (manna) sustained man and the three that appeared before Abram asked for meat and were sustained by the food of man!(Gen.17:1/ Gen18:1/ Gen18:2/ Gen.18:14/ Gen.18:14/ Gen18:16(20,22(33)/ Gen.19:1/ Gen.14-19.... Ps.78:24-25
Gen.18:1 And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day; /2/And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground, /vs.22/And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD. /vs.33/ And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place. (the word for men here is eesh which denotes masculine entity not the word Adam which means mankind and points to blood)
Gen.19:1 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;
(The people of Sodom considered these angels as men Gen.19:5 for they were in the same image as men Heb.13:2/ Gen.1:26)
Same Place Abraham set up the first alter willing to sacrifice Isaac, same place Christ was crusified same place he built his alter (tent) same place Mel. came to Abram.!
Gen.13:4;22:8-9; 12:7/ Matt.1:20/ Lk.1:31,35
Abraham showing reverance- (adon- Gen.18:3,12;19:2) Gen.18:2 / John 8:57-58/ Jn.8:40/ Acts3:25
(1 Jn.3:1)/ (importance of geneology Neh.7:64) Num.4:47 30 yrs old.
As Son of God Christ is heir of all things- Heb.1:2, Jn. 11:25, Jn.5:25 , Jn.5:25, Jn.5:27 (Matt.1:20, Lk.1:31,35)Son of man relates to dominion in Earth. Gen.1:26 forfited in Gen. 3 , therefore no decendant shall have universal dominion (unrest between the nations).
Man will set up the one world system, it will recieve a death blow and the anti will revive it for his agendas. Dan.7 and Rev. 13.
One shall come and rule in the earth Ez. 21:27
There have been many types of anti christs. The enemy will be given power for a period so that in the end God's will shall be done at the 2nd advent. (Ps. 8/ Ez. 2:1/ Heb.2:8-9)
(Gen. 18:2/ Col. 2:18/ Rev. 22)
Yeshua is the ONLY king of the righteous, King of Salem (Israel and the Jews), knew (met) Abraham prior to his birth (when he had neither mother or father), Is over the priesthood of Israel, (prince of peace), Judge, ..... What discription of Mel. doesnt Not line up with Yeshua (Jesus)?

I suggest anyone not familure with the earth ages study the subject within my blog. If all this info is new to you, feel free to put it on a shelf and perhaps over time you may notice how it stands up to all scripture in comparision. (Christ has been known as the King of Peace and King of the upright even before flesh birth) The study of the ages has nothing to do with reincarnation by the way (Heb.9:27). Spiritually we are all the same age (we have both a spirit and flesh body- .1 Cor.15:44). In the physical realm a soul is made up of a spirit body (breath of life) and dust (flesh) Gen.2:7
