"Obama and Melchizedek"


Satan is the great deceiver and counterfeiter; he tries to duplicate everything God and Jesus have done.  Obama reminds me of Melchizedek, king of Salem, who is without genealogy.  Obama is without genealogy, no one knows where he came from; he came out of nowhere and now exalts himself as the king of peace.   He has publicly announced he is God Himself.  I recall seeing a statue of him, riding into Washington D.C. on the back of a donkey.

The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind: “You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.”  Ps 110:4 

“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.”  Heb 7:1-3

NIV footnote to Genesis 14:18, king of Salem.  Melchizedek, meaning king of righteousness, is a type of Christ the King-Priest.  The type strictly applies to the priestly work of Christ in resurrection, since Melchizedek presents only the memorials of sacrifices, bread and wine.  “In the order of Melchizedek” (Ps 110:4) refers to the royal authority and unending duration of Christ’s high priesthood.  Christ is a priest after the order of Melchizedek, as King of righteousness, King of peace, and in the endlessness of his priesthood. 

Here is food for thought:      

“On the appointed day Herod, wearing his royal robes, sat on his throne and delivered a public address to the people.  They shouted, “This is the voice of a god, not of a man.”  Immediately, because Herod did not give praise to God, an angel of the Lord struck him down, and he was eaten by worms and died.  Acts 12:22
