Melchizedek, A Mysterious Person in the Bible.
I would like to write about why I came to accept and fully believe in Christ Ahnsahnghong who was the founder of the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) as the true Second Coming Christ. Of numerous prophecies and crystal-clear evidences proving Christ Ahnsahnghong to be the Second Coming Christ, I would like to write about “Melchizedek.”
When it comes to “Melchizedek”, not many people have any ideas about it, even though Apostle Paul said, as follows:
Hebrews 5:11 We have MUCH to say about this(Melchizedek), but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn.
Apostle Paul did not, in any way, mean that we should not know about Melchizedek, but rather that there were so many mysteries about him that could not be unraveled, in those days.
By the way, I just want to let you know that no other church, but WMSCOG, could teach me about Melchizedek.
First, let’s find out who Melchizedek is.
Genesis 14:18~20 Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out BREAD and WINE. He was PRIEST of God Most High, and he blessed Abram, saying, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth. And blessed be God Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand.”…
In the Old Testament times, priests would sacrifice lambs and goats for blessings of God, but Melchizedek was a priest that used BREAD and WINE which was an UNUSUAL practice that distinguished him from other priests, in those days. The Old Testament serves as a shadow of the reality which is the New Testament.
Who, then, is the reality of Melchizedek, the priest who uses BREAD and WINE, instead of lambs and goats, in the New Testament times?
Matthew 26:26~28 While they were eating, Jesus took BREAD, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took the CUP, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you.” This is my blood of the covenant which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
In the New Testament times, what distinguished Jesus from other priests is that he used bread and wine, instead of lambs and goats. He gave us eternal life, through the Passover Bread and Wine.
Obviously, who would you guess to be the reality of Melchizedek, in the New Testament times? Of course, but Jesus.
Hebrews 5:8~10 Although he was a son(Jesus), he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him and was designated by God to be HIGH PRIEST in the order of MELCHIZEDEK.
It’s obvious that Jesus was the very reality of Melchizedek. However, why did Apostle Paul say that it was hard to explain that Jesus was the Melchizedek? Let’s read more, about Melchizedek,
Hebrews 7:1~3 This MELCHIZEDEK was king of Salem and priest of God Most High. He met Abraham returning from the defeat of the kings and blessed him. and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything. First, his name means “king of righteousness”; then also, “king of Salem” means “king of peace.” WITHOUT FATHER OR MOTHER, WITHOUT GENEALOGY, without beginning of days or end of life, like the Son of God he remains a priest forever.
Let’s analyze why it was difficult to explain that Jesus was Melchizedek:
1) WITHOUT FATHER OR MOTHER:
Is there anyone born without father and mother? None! We should interpret this characteristic of Melchizedek, spiritually.
Matthew 12:50 For whoever does the WILL of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.
According to the bible, only those who do the will of God are recognized as God’s family. In fact, “Without Father or Mother” means to be born into a family of unbelievers. However, Jesus’ parents were Joseph and Mary who were, both, faithful followers of God. In other words, Jesus was born WITH FATHER AND MOTHER, spiritually speaking.
2) WITHOUT GENEALOGY:
Anyone who is a descendant of Abraham, has a genealogy. The book of Matthew, the first Book of the New Testament, already shows the genealogy of Jesus, against the conditions of Melchizedek.
After learning about these two conditions of Melchizedek, we can see why it must have been difficult to explain that Jesus was Melchizedek.
So, Apostle Paul concluded, in the book of Hebrews, that Jesus must appear a second time to fulfill all the conditions of Melchizedek.
Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a SECOND TIME, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
According to this prophecy, the Second Coming Christ must come again and fulfill the above conditions about Melchizedek.
1) He must be born into a family of unbelievers, because he must be without father or mother.
2) He must be born in a country, other than Israel, because he must be without genealogy.
3) He must bring us the Passover of the New Covenant which is the hard sign of Melchizedek.
4) He must be true God, because he is without beginning of days or end of life. Only God alone, is without beginning of days or end of life.
It is only Christ Ahnsahnghong who fulfills all the conditions of Melchizedek. He was born into a family of unbelievers in Korea which is a gentile country. He also brought us the Passover Bread and Wine, the hard sign of Melchizedek. Therefore, he is without beginning of days or end of life:
Isaiah 25:6~8 On this mountain the LORD ALMIGHTY will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of AGED WINE-the best of meats and the finest of wines. On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth. The Lord has spoken.
In the last days, God prepares a feast of rich food for all peoples through aged wine. The purpose of the aged wine is to destroy death, forever, and give us eternal life. The wine that can swallow up death is only the Passover wine, but why is the Passover wine, aged? It is because the Passover was abolished in AD 325 at the council of Nicae and for about 1600 years, it has not been kept.
Let’s find out who the one who brings us the Passover bread and wine, is.
Isaiah 25:9 In that day they will say, “Surely THIS is our GOD; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the Lord, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”
The one who brings us the restored Passover is our true God. The Passover that was lost for 1600 years was restored by Christ Ahnsahnghong. In the Old Testament times, only Melchizedek would use the bread and wine; in the New Testament times, only Jesus would use the bread and wine; and in our time, only Christ Ahnsahnghong used the bread and wine of the Passover to bless us with eternal life, by destroying death, forever.
Therefore, we, who keep the Passover, should boldly proclaim “surely, THIS (Christ Ahnsahnghong who brought us the Passover) is our true GOD!!” and “let us rejoice and be GLAD in his SALVATION!”, according to the prophecies of the bible.
We thank Christ Ahnsahnghong who has granted us the blessing of eternal life with the bread and wine of the Passover.
The Bible is a book that informs the savior. It is the God who established the new covenant by Christ Ahnsahnghong in the Age of the Holy Spirit.
Do you understand why the Bible said that Jesus was mystery? Who knows Melchizedek represent Jesus without learning about this.
Melchizedek was the Only priest who prayed for blessing with bread and wine during the Old Testament. This is because he was a person representing Jesus. He is also a prophetic figure to inform the 2nd Coming Christ.
In the Old Testament, we can see many mysterious figures who the bible mentions only a couple of times, but have a significant prophetical meaning in it. These are some of the figures, David the King of Israel, Melchizedek the High Priest of God, Elijah the Prophet of God. Among these figures the most mysterious figure is Melchizedek. He is mentioned just two times in the Old Testament but suddenly become critical in understanding the Christ in the Book of Hebrews. This article is insightful in understanding the prophetical meaning of Melchizedek.
Christ Ahnsahnghong is our Savior in this last age, who brought us the New Covenant Passover in the order of Melchizedek. We should seek Him only through the Bible.
Christ Ahnsahnghong is second coming Jesus who brought out the Passover.
Jesus established the passover as the reality of Melchizedek . in our age, Christ Ahnsahnghong restored the passover . This means that Christ Ahnsanghong is second coming Jesus as the reality of Melchizedek.
Amen, Christ Ahnsahnghong is truly our god who restore the Passover, way to eternal life!
Because Jesus died on cross, we can not believe in him as Christ?
If Jews believe in truly the prophecy of the Bible about Jesus, they might receive Jesus as Christ… This age is same!
If people believe in the prophecies of King David, Melchisedek, Fig tree in the Bible, they will receive Christ Ahnsahnghong. I hope so.
When I saw Isa25, it’s Written that Jehovah will hold the feast with old aged wine. Who will do it? Jehovah!! However In Isa 25:9 the Bible revealed again the one who will provide us with old aged wine which removes death forevermore will be definitely God. So biblical way to recognize God is the old aged wine to remove death eternally. That’s the only Passover wine established by Jesus. Then who is Jesus by nature? He is God! In this age, the Passover was recovered by Christ Ahnsahnghong. Thus he is definitely God!
Amen. Our Father Ahnsahnghong removes death forever. He is God prophesied in the Bible. Let us keep the Passover what God want us to keep and be saved. 😀
It’s natural to believe in Christ Ahnsahnghong if you believe the Bible.
So, I hope that people carefully study the Bible to recognize the true savior in the age.
The passover is the evidence to recognize Melchizedek. Christ Ahnsahnghong brought the passover like him. That’s why Christ Ahnsahnghing is prophetic Melchizedek. Thanks to Him!!
Amazing truth it is! How can just a person interpret this great truth of the Bible!! Only the Root of David can do this for our salvation. Without Christ Ahnsahnghong, no one can receive eternal life in this age.
I saw the evidence of Melchizedek in the Bible. How can I deny Christ Ahn Sahng Hong.
It’s awesome! Melchizedek is symbol of Christ! Jesus didn’t accoplish some of prophecies such as WITHOUT FATHER OR MOTHER, WITHOUT GENEALOGY. So Second Coming is nacessary. All of prophecies of Melchizedek was fulfilled by Christ Ahnsahnghong. He is truly God the Savior who we have to be reverable!
Truly this is our God…!!
Through the prophecy of Melglchizedec we can know the truth.
Christ Ahnsahnhong is truly second coming christ who fulfilled all the prophecies of the bible. He brought back again the Passover which was hidden for 1900 years. Its really amazing when u find out that the people written in the bible are actually the ones for you to recognize Christ.
The Bible clearly says ‘he who bring Passover again will be your God’ .
Christ Ahnshanghong fulfilled it. Then what we do?
The wine that can swallow up death is only the Passover. Christ Ahnsahnghong who restored the Passover is our almighty God. Christ Ahnsahnghong fulfilled the prophecy of Melchizedek and allowed us realize the meaning of it correctly. He is our almighty God.
There are many prophecies to prove Christ Ahnsahnghong as the Second Coming Christ, one of them is the prophecy of Melchizedek.
The Bible teaches us that in these last days, the one who blesses us for eternal life with the aged wine is our God. The wine giving us eternal life is only the Passover wine.
So Christ Ahnsahnghong who fully restored the truth of New Covenant Passover that is a sign of Melchizedek is the Second Coming Christ.
2000 yrs ago, apostle Paul must have had a difficulty to explain about the prophecy of Melchizedek that will be fulfilled completely by the Second Coming Christ in the age of Holy Spirit. However, since the time for those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil has come (Heb 5:14) , we, members of the Church of God boldly preach about Christ Ahnsahnghong thru the prophecy of the Bible.
Melchizedek is a mysterious person in the Bible. However, It is a clear evidence to recognize true God in this last days. 😀
Mechizedek was special priest because he represented Christ who bring bread and wine of Passover for blessing of eternal life. Passover is clear sign of Melchizedek. Christ Ahnsahnghong came to us following prophecy of Melchizedek and gave us Passover. It is clear evidence of Second-coming Christ.
Amen. Christ Ahnsahnghong is God almighty who gives us eternal life through the Passover.
Christ Ahnsahnghong fulfilled all the prophecies of the Bible.
Who can deny Him?
Isaiah prophesied that the one who will restore the Passover is God almighty.
Who restored the Passover in this age?
He is Christ Ahnsahnghong.
Believe Him who came down to the earth to save us.
Why do we believe in Christ Ahnsahnghong as our savior? Just no reason to us? Never. We are also very rational and reasonable being. The reason why we believe in Him is because He has accomplished all of the prophecies which are written in the Bible as predestined to be fulfilled by Second coming Christ. So we have clear reasons of belief.
The reality of Melchizedek is Christ Ahnsahnghong who brought the Passover that save ppl by it
Believe in him as our God, our Melchizedek !!
Amen! Christ Ahn-sahng-hong nim is the
only one who fulfilled all prophercies about
the second coming Christ in the Bible.
He is truely our God the Father who gives us eternal life with God the Mother through
the feast of Passover in this Age.
How can we repay Christ Ahn-sahng-hong nim for his great love and sacrifice.
Let’s give thanks, praise and honor to our
Heavenly Parents forever.
There were many priests who use the blood of lambs and goats but only Melchizedek uses the Bread and Wine in the Old Testaments. It is same in the New Testament. Jesus used the Bread and Wine in the New Covenant as a prophetical Melchizedek. Likewise, Christ Ahnsahnghong gives us eternal life with the Bread and Wine of the Passover as a prophetical Melchizedek!
Amen. Our Father Ahnsahnghong came as Melchizedek to save us. 😀
