Melchizedek: King of Salem

melchisedek

High Priest of the Most High God

This seems to be one of my left-field inspirations, but I was reminded internally yesterday, (when we were skipping over a discussion of the Book of Job in our Faith & Science group) that Edgar Cayce said that Melchizedek wrote that story as an allegory.

So, I had to do some research, didn’t I?

Edgar Cayce‘s Story of Jesus (by Jeffrey Furst)

Q. Please give the important incarnations of Jesus in the world’s history.

A. In the beginning as Amilius, as Adam, as Melchiezdek [sic], as Zend, as Ur, as Asaph, as Jeshua—Joseph—(Joshua)—Jesus.

Then, as that coming into the world in the second coming—for He will come again and receive His own who have prepared themselves through that belief in Him and acting in the manner; for the Spirit is abroad and the time draws near and there will be the reckoning of those even as in the first so in the last and the last shall be first; for there is that Spirit abroad—he standeth near. Ye that hath eyes to see, let him see. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear, let him hear that music of the coming of the Lord of this vineyard; and art thou ready to give account of that thou hast done with thine opportunity in the earth as the Sons of God, as the heirs and joint heirs of the glory of the Son? Then make thy paths straight, for there must come an answering for that thou hast done with the Lord! He will not tarry, for having overcome He shall appear even as the Lord and Master. Not as one born, but as one that returneth to his own, for He will walk and talk with men of every clime, and those that are faithful and just in their reckoning shall be caught up with Him to rule and to do judgment for a thousand years! (364-7)

{Jeffrey Furst comments:} In the above Reading Cayce ties in and relates the Alpha/Omega concept of Christ from Genesis to Revelation in an extremely interesting and understandable manner. Indeed, the entire series of Readings on the Book of Revelation is in itself a worthwhile separate study. Therein Cayce relates the Revelation of John as a symbolic allegory of the human body’s structure and evolvement to the ultimate Christ Consciousness within—all related to the promised second coming of The Master. (pages 39-40)

A Righteous King

Melchizedek is a rare figure in Hebrew history. He was the king of Salem and he was a High Priest of God. The roles had not yet been split. When Jesus came into Jerusalem for the Holy Week of the Passover, for the last time, he came as the Messiah, the Anointed One, a priestly king. This is hidden in the symbolism of riding on a donkey.

This strange combination of roles of priest and king needed to be re-established before the end of the world could come. That’s why Jesus said that he had come to fulfill the Law and the Prophets. Only the sacrifice of a holy king would do.

We are back to Osiris territory again.

Conclusion

There is so much to explore when it comes to this world. It can take a lifetime (and longer) to get to the bottom of the situation. And then the only way left to go is UP!
