Josephus, one of the two famous historians (other Eusebius): ‘Jerusalem was taken in the second year of Vespasian’s reign.It had been captured five times before Shishak, King of Egypt, Antiiochus, Pompey. Sossius with Herod had taken but preserved it. Before liad waste by King of Babylon, 1486 years six months from its foundation. The founder MELCHIZEDEK, first priest of God, first to build the temple; called it Jerusalem,, before Solyma. The Canaanites driven from Jerusalem by David. Babylonians destroyed it 477 years 6 months later, Titus 1179 years after David; 2177 years since foundation.’ Short video:: King of Salem, Melchizedek, from his royal place of abode brought out bread and wine to feed Abraham and his 318 trained men. Melchizedek was ‘the’ priest of the Most High God. He was the only Priest. He was functioning on earth. Melchizedek was greater than Abram. Melchizedek blessed Abram. He said, ‘Blessed be Abram by the Most High God, Creator of heaven and earth. Worthy of praise is the most High God who delivered your eemies into your hand’. Melchizedek blessed Abram, ‘the one who possessed the promise’. Melchizedek is the representative of the Messiah, the promised seed. This was to show that it was through the Messiah, as the High Priest in the New Testament gospel, the promised blessing would come. Melchizedek was ‘like’ the Son of God, Heb.6:12. He was king of Salem, of peace and righteousness. Christ is Prince of peace and King of righteousness. Melchizedek ‘like’ Christ, in this sense, it relating to office. The likeness is in the office. There are two offices. Melchizedek is eternal priest. The Christ was the Word of God, eternal God, but begotten of the Father on earth. Here is a great mystery. He had neither father nor mother is written. He appears suddenly, as if falling from heaven.#BibleStudy #Christian #IreneBonneyFaulkes #Truth #Teaching #wordofgod
