The Order of Melchizedek: What is the Order?

What is the Order? There is an order kept in all things; celestial orders, terrestrial orders; there are animal life orders. The types of orders are endless. What is the order of things we find ourselves living in today as human beings?

In 1st Corinthians 14:40 KJV

[40] Let all things be done decently and in order.

Paul, the apostle of CHRIST, says we should do things decently and in order! Decently is defined as doing things in a way that conforms with generally accepted standards of respectable or moral behavior. The acceptable and/or moral behavior would be that which the FATHER established through CHRIST. This is better known as the Order of the Son of Elohim or the Order of Melchizedek.

What is the order of Melchizedek?

Psalm 110:1-2 KJV

[1] The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. [2] The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

David is known to have authored the Psalms, but this was not speaking of David. Instead, this is speaking of the ONE prophesied to come from David’s lineage; this is the CHRIST!

Acts 2:34-36 KJV

[34] For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, [35] Until I make thy foes thy footstool. [36] Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

Thus Jesus the Christ was made both Lord and Christ, and He is the Lord referred to by the LORD in Psalm chapter 110. We should read it again now with more clarity.

Psalm 110:1,4 KJV

[1] The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. [4] The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

The LORD (the Father) said unto my Lord (the Son or Christ) to sit at His right hand until the earth is subdued. The Father has made an oath and will not turn from it that His Son, Yeshua (known as Jesus Christ) will be His priest forever ruling after the order of Melchizedek.

Who is or was Melchizedek?

Melchizedek sounds like a name of a person, but it is really a title, much like Pharoah, Caesar, and Cleopatra became titles. Because Melchizedek is a two-part word, the Melchi is “my king,” or king.

The second part of Melchizedek is “Zedek” — Zedek means righteousness. Now you can put the whole word together; Melchi-Zedek means My King is Righteousness or My King is Righteous; this is the order in which the priesthood is supposed to be ordered after, righteousness.

Adam was the original King of the earth and head of the order. However, that role and the title have now been appointed to Yashaya (Jesus) the Christ as the Head of the Order. He is the Head of the Church, of the Order of the Son of Elohim.

Genesis 14:18 KJV

[18] And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

This was not Christ, as often thought; it was Shem, the firstborn of Noah.

Hebrews 5:6,9-10 KJV

[6] As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. [9] And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; [10] Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.

Although Shem was the man in Genesis 14, his lineage produced Abraham, David, and Yashaya (the Christ) who carried on the order. This is the order all who would seek the kingdom of Elohim must follow. The ordinances are set by the Order of the Son of Elohim (Christ).

1st Corinthians 11:1-3 KJV

[1] Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. [2] Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. [3] But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

Paul the apostle states to follow his manner, a man who follows CHRIST. Keep the ordinances he delivered to the church, which he received from CHRIST. In this series, we are going to go over some of the ordinances or orders as it pertains to the sons of Adam working together.

For starters, CHRIST is the head of every man, the man is the head of the woman, and the head of CHRIST is ELOHIM, the FATHER. To be continued…

This study topic was put together to rebuild the family institution according to the holiest order given to man. It is the order of the Son of Elohim, Yashaya (Jesus) the Christ. This is the Order of Melchizedek.

In order to build a nation, it starts with the men. The men must be fitly joined by a virtuous woman. A man should have a pleasing wife so they may bring up righteous children. This must all be done decently and in order; in the order must all things be done!

After the order of Melchizedek.
