King Melchizedek The High Priest Of God-El Elyon & King Of Salem
Digitized this last night: “King Melchizedek”
I was directed by the spirit of the Lord to read Hebrews 7 last night and I have probably read Hebrews quite a few times – but this time, I SAW it:
Hebrews 7 1. And this Melchisedec, king of Salem, and priest of the highest God [the priest of the highest God], which met Abraham, as he turned again from the slaying of the kings, and blessed him;
2 to whom also Abraham parted tithes of all things; first he is said king of rightwiseness [first soothly the which is interpreted king of rightwiseness], and afterward king of Salem, that is to say, king of peace,
3 without father, without mother, without genealogy, neither having beginning of days, neither end of life; and he is likened to the Son of God, and dwelleth priest without end [forsooth he likened to the Son of God, dwelleth priest into without end]. El-Elyon – Encyclopedia of The Bible – Bible Gateway
- Paul, an Orthodox Jew from the tribe of Benjamin who was blinded on the road to Damascus teaches that Melchizedek was neither born, nor did he die. Yet, he ruled in Israel. Paul taught this.
|Genesis 14:18-20 Notice that Melchizedek was king of Salem. That is the city of Jerusalem. “Salem” comes from the Hebrew word meaning “peace.” That would make Melchizedek the “King of Peace” (Hebrews 7:2). The Hebrew name Melchizedek itself means “King of Righteousness” (Hebrews 7:2). The same individual is mentioned in Psalm 110:4. Speaking prophetically of Christ, David stated: “The Eternal hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” This verse is quoted again in Hebrews 5:6, 10.|
- Paul is saying that this King & Priest is likened to the son of God.
- I believe that perhaps a ‘son of God’ (Job 1:6) as written in the Hebrew Mechon Mamre about (God’s many Heavenly sons) but, it looks like one of these sons? or? came and ruled in Salem (Jerusalem) during the time (or even before Abraham). Was it GOD himself or another? I do not know. I just know that I found this completely fascinating last night.
I hope you take the time and read about this!
Amen. Here is my take for some time. He is melek tzaddik melek shalom or king of righteousiness king of peace. Sadly christians drop the second title and slur the first title together into one word so deep meaning gets unnoticed.
As you showed he has no mom or pop nor beginning or end. Thats a big clue. The answer is either he is pre existant Jesus or yahweh himself. Pre existant Jesus also would have no mom or pop until his incarnation as a man.
I wont consider jw doctrines that Jesus & satan are brothers or more siblings. Its heresy.
My take is melek tzadik melek shalom is the original and same final priesthood or Jesus himself. Due to sin, a noah flood, a return of sin, the original priesthood was temporally suspended and a levite priesthood raised up as a school master for set duration until its replaced with the original priesthood again. Levite priesthood is null and void since Jesus died on The cross. Jesus is melek tzadik i believe.
The answer is either he is pre existant Jesus or yahweh himself
I agree- however, I leave it to the readers to come to that conclusion
I would say He is pre-existent Yahshua
What I take from this is that Melchizedek/Jesus, the King of Salem, is the Alpha/Omega, the Aleph/Tav.
When King David conquered Jebus (Jebusites), he renamed it the City of David (Jerusalem). I believe that Mount Zion is in the original Jebus–the stronghold that King David conquered. The Jebusites were there temporarily. Before the Jebusites lived there, it was known as Jerusalem.
What does this mean? 1. Adam lived in a sinless state; 2. then sin entered in and Creation fell; 3. then Christ came and redeemed us from sin. Melchizedek was King of Salem (Jerusalem); 2. the heathen Jebusites (sin) took over Jerusalem temporarily; 3. King David (the ancestor of Jesus) conquered Jebus and redeemed and renamed it Jerusalem.
Adam’s sinless state/ sin corrupts creation/ Jesus redeems us from sin.
Jerusalem/ Jebus/ Jerusalem>New Jerusalem.
Today, King Jesus reigns in New Jerusalem, which is a spiritual city for those who have experienced a personal second coming. The Lord rules in Zion: the Lord rules in Presence of God.
Here is some more information on the Jebusites:

I believe you’re right, Tim.
History: the study of past dead generations vs. Prophetic mussar – the rebuke to all generations living.
The Talmud views the stories in the T’NaCH NOT as history but rather prophetic mussar. The “Aggadita” communicated within the first Book of בראשית, all these Torah characters teach prophetic mussar RATHER than physical historical reality. The Aggaditic stories from Adam, Noach, the Avot and the children of Israel who descend unto Egyptian g’lut — all these personages communicate Aggadita mussar stories. The story of Israel enslaved in Egypt by Par’o and redeemed by Moshe — also only an Aggadita mussar story.
The T’NaCH Aggadic mussar stories do not define Jewish ancient history but rather these codifications describe the cultures and customs developed by an ancient people known today as the Jewish people. A people do not develop culture and customs out of thin air. But this essential fact does “convert” the Hebrew T’NaCH literature into a collection of history books, despite their ancient origins of these ancient stories. That the authors and framers of these collection of Books, all written a long time ago … the k’vanna of all these aggadic works contained within T’NaCH literature – T’NaCH aggadic mussar stories, NOT concrete actual histories of ancient Israel.
This subtle distinction of k’vanna/intent\ separates Torah faith from Xtian and Muslim faiths. The latter “holy” books absolutely depend on and requires concrete depictions of a physical history, rather than an abstract aggadic mussar. Xtianity cannot exist without a physical Jesus. Rava, a later Amorah Gemarah sage, expresses a totally opposing idea – – the Talmud refers to Job as an imaginary man!
This warp/weft concrete/abstract\emotional Talmudic “loom”, it weaves the fabric of all Talmudic literature, which always separates concrete realist halacha from its opposing abstract emotional/aggadic ideas. This distinct division within and throughout the whole of the Talmud, it fundamentally defines how the Sages perceived the relationship between Torah commandments. vs.Torah common law/משנה תורה.
Obviously, the translation of the ancient Hebrew prophetic mussar texts have greatly interested alien foreign Goyim scholars. Despite the hard fact that Goyim scholarship ignored the Order and organization of the Torah, known as פ/chapter and ס\sub-chapter (פרק\סוגיה). Biblical translators unilaterally imposed a completely different Order and organization upon the Torah. Commonly known today as the Chapters and verses of the bible.
This Goyification of the Hebrew T’NaCH likewise prioritizes the history of Biblical actual – real-life characters, but totally and completely ignores prophetic mussar expressed through Aggadic abstract emotions of our shared and collective humanity! This foreign European viewpoint has shaped and defined the religions of both Xtianity and Islam. The perversion of ancient Hebrew culture and customs into artificial “actual” physical history, this tumah corruption of the T’NaCH has changed and perverted the message of the whole of the T’NaCH.
Church arrogance views the Talmud with extreme hostility. The Talmudic sages who read the T’NaCH as prophetic mussar/aggadita, which separates and distinguishes between abstract tohor vs. tumah middot spirits, this most basic and fundamental T’NaCH mussar, the church fathers utterly despise, discounted, and ignored. Hebraic prophetic mussar simply did not fit the ‘Good News’ narrative which new testament proponents actively desire to promote.
Therefore, the church fathers in total derision, they denied the existence of all Oral Torah common law – linked to prophetic mussar, by means of the Aggadic portions within the Talmud – according to the פרדס kabbalah as taught by Rabbi Akiva, and all the sages within the Talmud. The church simply preferred to burn the Talmud rather than consider or objectively weigh the essential perspective of Jewish Torah authorities and Talmudic scholars.
Starting with the Apostle Paul, Goyim religious leaders, authorities, and scholars condemned any attempt to Judaize Xtianity. The early church leadership emphatically rejected the category of being just another Jewish heretical subset within Jewish culture and traditions. The church therefore strove to develop its own unique set of cultures and traditions which shapes the different European civilizations and societies of Europe & Russia.
1 A Psalm of David.
The LORD saith unto my lord: ‘Sit thou at My right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.’
2 The rod of Thy strength the LORD will send out of Zion: ‘Rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.’
3 Thy people offer themselves willingly in the day of thy warfare;
in adornments of holiness, from the womb of the dawn, thine is the dew of thy youth.
4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent: ‘Thou art a priest for ever
after the manner of Melchizedek.’
5 The Lord at thy right hand doth crush kings in the day of His wrath.
6 He will judge among the nations; He filleth it with dead bodies, He crusheth the head over a wide land.
7 He will drink of the brook in the way; therefore will he lift up the head.
Psalms Chapter 110 https://mechon-mamre.org/e/et/et26b0.htm
So, if you do not agree this is Yashua, then you must understand that Melchizedek was Hashem himself.
None sense Melchizedek the son of Shem the son of Noach. Just that simple. He lost the Cohen status when he erred on the priority of making a blessing. Just that simple.
How is he a priest FOREVER then??
He lost the Cohen status and the seed of Avraham through Yitzak became the chosen Cohen seed.
Im not against the Talmud, BTW. I have Rabbi Gil’s site linked: https://www.angelfire.com/mt/talmud/
But it is written that Melchizedek is a Priest FOREVER ! He didnt lose any status
Its written that the kingdom of David would not cease. Prophetic mussar not interpreted literally.
Welp, we can agree to disagree 🙂
If the rabbis werent rabid to hide the sacred names and fallen christians comply, then the lord said to the lord would correctly say , Yahweh said to Yahshua..
Yahweh = avodah zarah/idolatry.
Thats interesting, SNT!!!
