An anointed crown will become
"King of Righteousness."
It is like the precious ointment upon the head,
that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard:
that went down to the skirts of his garments;
For thus saith the Lord of hosts;
Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens,
and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;
And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come:
and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts.
The silver is mine, and the gold is mine,
saith the Lord of hosts.
The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former,
saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts.
Haggai 2 6-9
A priest of the most high God for ever
after the order of Melchizedek.
I am the Lord your God, which brought your ancestors out of the land of Egypt,
from the house of bondage.
You shall have no other gods before me.
You shall not make any graven image,
or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above,
or that is in the earth beneath,
or that is in the waters beneath the earth:
You shall not bow down yourself to any of them,
never serve them:
for I the Lord your God am a jealous God,
visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children
unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,
and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me
and keep my commandments.
You shalt not take the name of the Lord your God in vain:
for the Lord will not hold him guiltless, they that taketh his name in vain.
Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it,
as the Lord your God has commanded it.
Six days you shalt labour, and do all your work:
but the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord your God:
In it you shalt not do any work,
You, nor your son, or your daughter, ,
nor thy stranger that is within thy gates;
everyone must rest, even you.
And remember that your family were servant's in the land of Egypt,
and that I the Lord your God brought them freedom
through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm:
therefore, the Lord your God has commanded you to keep the sabbath day.
Honour thy father and thy mother,
as I the Lord your God has commanded you;
So that your days may be prolonged,
and that your life may go well with you,
in the land which the Lord thy God gave you to live.
You shalt not kill.
Nor shall you commit adultery.
Nor shall you steal.
Neither shalt you bear false witness against your neighbour.
Neither shall you desire your neighbour’s wife,
neither shall you envy your neighbour’s house,
or his fields, or his staff, his pets, or his animals,
or any thing that is your neighbour’s.
Melchizedek Was God's Priest
Melchizedek, was a priest of the Most High God.
Abraham was ministered to by Melchizedek.
"And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine;
he was priest of God Most High.
Melchizedek blessed him and said,
'Blessed be Abram by God Most High,
maker of heaven and earth;
and blessed be God Most High,
who has delivered your enemies into your hand!'
And Abram gave him [Melchizedek] a tenth of everything" that is,
a tithe of all, for a tithe means a tenth (Genesis 14:18-20, RSV).
"King of Righteousness"
The Lord said unto my Lord,
Sit thou at my right hand,
until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion:
rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power,
in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning:
thou hast the dew of thy youth.
The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent,
Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
The Lord at thy right hand shall strike
through kings in the day of his wrath.
He shall judge among the heathen,
he shall fill the places with the dead bodies;
he shall wound the heads over many countries.
He shall drink of the brook in the way:
therefore shall he lift up the head.
For this Melchisedec, king of Saem,
priest of the most high God,
who met Abraham returning
from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;
To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all;
first being by interpretation King of righteousness,
and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;
Without father, without mother,
without descent, having neither beginning of days,
nor end of life;
but made like unto the Son of God;
abideth a priest continually.
Now consider how great this man was,
unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
And verily they that are of the sons of Levi,
who receive the office of the priesthood,
have a commandment to take tithes
of the people according to the law,
that is, of their brethren,
though they come out of the loins of Abraham:
But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.
And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.
And here men that die receive tithes;
but there he receiveth them,
of whom it is witnessed that he liveth.
And as I may so say,
Levi also, who receiveth tithes,
payed tithes in Abraham.
For he was yet in the loins of his father,
when Melchisedec met him.
If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood,
(for under it the people received the law,)
what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec,
and not be called after the order of Aaron?
For the priesthood being changed,
there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda;
of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
And it is yet far more evident:
for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,
Who is made,
not after the law of a carnal commandment,
but after the power of an endless life.
For he testifieth,
Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.
For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.
And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest:
(For those priests were made without an oath;
but this with an oath by him that said unto him,
The Lord sware and will not repent,
Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:)
By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.
And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:
But this man, because he continueth ever,
hath an unchangeable priesthood.
Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
For such an high priest became us,
who is holy, harmless, undefiled,
separate from sinners, and made
higher than the heavens;
Who needeth not daily,
as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice,
first for his own sins, and then for the people's:
For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity;
but the word of the oath, which was since the law,
maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.
Hebrews 7 King James Version (KJV)
Since God names individuals what they are,
that, then is what this man is..
"King of Righteousness."
Think of it!
King of Righteousness.
"All my commandments are righteousness"
"priest of the Most High God."
All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers.
And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.
And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.
Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years.
Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the Lord thy God chasteneth thee.
Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.
For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills;
A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey;
A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass.
When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.
Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:
Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein;
And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;
Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the Lord thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;
Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;
Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;
And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.
But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.
As the nations which the Lord destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the Lord your God.
A typical Kingdom of God family home
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
"The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, as well as the difficult to deal with, perverse mouth,
do I hate."
How my people became members of the
House of Israel
For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;
And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts.
The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts.
What is the desire?
Who's house will God fill with Glory?
