  • I Am that Michael Isaac Dale
    It is not for the wicked who walk after the flesh to understand. But now, it pleases my Holy Father for me to glory in the knowledge given me by the Spirit of Christ. For it is written, But let him that glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, says the LORD.

    Who can understand the mechanics of the Supreme Being. Noone! We don't even fully understand the mechanics of being alive in a body which has a end, but the Spirit which enlivens us doesn't. Melchidec appeared out of nowhere to Abraham as an emissary and is never heard from again. You say he was Jesus walking the earth on a recon mission. I say that Jesus was born of woman, Melchisidec wasn't

    HEBREWS 7:12 for the priesthood being changed there is made of necessity a change also of the law ROMANS 8:2 for the law of the spirit of life in CHRIST JESUS hath made me free from the law of sin and death EPHESIANS 4:24 and that you put on the new man which after GOD is created in righteousness and true holiness

    *** HEBREWS 7:22 BY SO MUCH WAS JESUS MADE A SURETY OF A BETTER TESTAMENT ***

    Bet, because Melchizedek is a type of Christ comparing the Levitical law or mt. Sinai law which was given by God to Moses in contrast to the N.Testament law grace and truth by Christ Jo:1:17 Henry's commentary of this chapter indicate he was a priest and a king just like Jesus. He had no parents...mostly referring to no documentation of his human history. I don't see enough to say Christophany.

    These 2 immutable things are the 2 oaths made by God and Melchisedec blessing Abraham with multiplication/children. Immutable means something that cannot be changed which are the 2 oaths made by God and Melchisedec ,Resulting in natural Israel, Our strong consolation that Christ might be formed IN US WHICH IS the H.G WHOM JESUS REFERS TO AS THE PROMISE ,The Israel of GOD, MULTIPLICATION OF GOD .

    Hello Eutychus, WHERE IS MELCHIZADEK? Psalm 90:2 "from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God". Jesus is God,John 20:28, and therefore Melchizadek seems to be an Old Testament appearance of Jesus before He appeared in the New Testament as baby Jesus. Very, very deep.
  • Eutychus
    "Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually." No beginning, no end of life...here is the mystery...regarding which I will not attempt an answer. WHERE IS MELCHIZADEK? If he has no end of days, he must be alive...where is he? On earth? In heaven? Where then is Melchizadek?

    Hebrews 7:11 if therefore perfection were by the levitical priesthood for under it the people received the law what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchizedek and not be called after the order of Aaron 7:12 for the priesthood being changed there is of necessity a change also of the law

    Jimmy; He that denies Jesus Christ having come in flesh is Antichrist. But the whole testimony of the Scriptures is that the Anointed would come in flesh, born of a woman, to save the world and undo the works of the devil. Your hostility is nothing new; it started with Cain, and spread over the whole earth because of Nimrod, and is the root of the fierceness and rage of the heathen against Christ!
  • Jimmy a disciple of Jesus
    sorry "a disciple" you are wrong..plainly vs 3 says he didnt have a mother or father without beginning or end...just cause our peanut of a brain cant fathom it doesnt mean to make up things just to ease our thinking or to fit our religion!!!
  • A disciple
    Bet; "Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God.." Melchizedek naturally DID have a father and mother; but with regard to the recorded genealogies of the Nations, he appears as though not from any of them. In this was he made a type of Jesus the Son of God the Anointed. I hope that answers your question.
  • Bet
    How can Paul equate Melchisedec to Jesus, who is God on earth among us????

  • Ron garcia
    It is very interesting what chapter 7 of Hebrews is revealing to us. This chapter is confirming that the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, became flesh and dwelt among us, who also established the order of Melchisedec priesthood. Jesus was the second of the priesthood of Melchisedec, both God in the flesh. The Holy Spirit also dwells in the hearts of the believers.
  • A disciple
    Dear Frank; What the Apostle is explaining to us is about the eternal existence of the Lord Jesus; in how Melchizedek (of whom there is no record in Scripture about his lineage) was taken as a type of Christ. The term, "..men that die receive tithes," simply refers to the mortality, and therefore the weakness of the Aaronic priesthood because the priests did not live for ever.
  • Frank Hogan nz
    " and here men that die receive tithes " verse 8 Can someone explain this to me, paying tithes to someone who is dead !!!

    HEB 7:11 IF THEREFORE PERFECTION WERE BY THE LEVITICAL PRIESTHOOD FOR UNDER IT THE PEOPLE RECEIVED THE LAW WHAT FURTHER NEED WAS THERE THAT ANOTHER PRIEST SHOULD RISE AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHISEDEC AND NOT BE CALLED AFTER AARON 7:12 FOR THE PRIESTHOOD BEING CHANGED THERE IS MADE OF NECESSITY A CHANGE ALSO OF THE LAW 7:24 BUT THIS MAN BECAUSE HE CONTINUETH EVER HATH AN UNCHANGEABLE PRIESTHOOD

    Thank you for the blood that speaks better things and for the opportunity to just be blessed

    Was Abraham under the Law? No! The father of many nations knew something about tithing, he recognized God's blessings for doing so. Should people rob God? Jesus said,give to God what belongs to God. The bookof Hebrews focuses on the superiority of Jesus Christ overall other entities, we areto hold fast to Jesus asthe great High Priest of God. Jesus replaces Judaism as God's revelation of himself
  • Stephende
    Melkisidec, the high priest who simply was, sent by God, for the benefit of Abraham, the friend of God, the father of both gentile and jew. Truly there is no difference with God. Jesus taught as a Jewish priest, from Jewish literature. He pleased God and was given gifts unimaginable. From wence came the Christian? Was it not from Paul, who was the Apostle of the Gentile by agreement
  • Irene123
    Quote, " ..... Hebrews is not meant for Gentiles ..... " unquote. Matt. 24:14 - And this gospel shall be preached in ALL the world ... unto ALL nations; ... "; 28:19 - " ... teach ALL nations ... "; V. 20 - " ... teaching them to observe ALL things whatsoever I have commanded you ... "; ALL the world was not inhabited at that time JUST by Jews.
  • Steve morrow
    1 corin 12:13 for by one spirit are we all baptized into one body whether we be jews or gentiles whether we be bond or free and have been all made to drink into one spirit 2 corin 3:17 now the LORD is that spirit and where the spirit of the LORD is there is liberty ROMANS 6:18 BEING THEN MADE FREE FROM SIN YOU BECAME THE SERVANTS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS---CONT BELOW
  • Tami
    From my understanding, Hebrews is not meant for gentiles. Have to be very careful what you're reading and what dispensation it is. Do gentiles understand what tithing is and how often it was actually done?
    (I'm by no means an expert on the scripture but I do follow some well-studied teachers.)
    Amen
  • John L.
    Tithe is 1/10. Tithing was required for the support of the tribe of Levi because their job was to care for the worship services, tabernacle, furnishings,etc. and could not work, grow crops to eat. The doctrine of the church is sacrificial giving based on prayer and stewardship of what God has provided you. Actually tithe is incorrect terminology for the church.
  • Irene123
    To Bitts Bajj - The tithe of the O.T. remains the same in the N.T. If we as church members give our tithes to the homeless, to worldly charities; how are our churches to support themselves - the monthly utilities, the repairs from storms or vandals, the normal repair from wear 'n tear?
    Mal.6:7-8. And - the laborer is worthy of his hire, Pastors included. The pastors pay tithes too.
  • Bits Bajj
    In Hebrew 7: the reason Abraham gives tithe is explained, not Isaac,Jacob, Joseph nor Moses. And also why levits receives tithes. Now Jesus the high priest receives tithes, according to the gospel, by giving to the needy. No mortal should receive tithe.
