The Spiritual Picture (Genesis 14:18-20)

Behind the scenes, we get the true spiritual picture of what really happened in Genesis 14:18-20 through the person of Melchizedek, both high priest and king.

How does God fit into your life? Is He contained in a small compartment that fits neatly into Sunday morning or a great God, possessor and controller of all that affects each aspect of your life?

The first picture is not the God of the scripture. We have formed an idol to protect our comforts.

Melchizedek the High Priest

If we try to understand all the parts to this picture, we will see that God is the almighty creator and by virtue of His creatorhood, He is also possessor, even of the ground upon which Abram stood. God’s immense power and ability to intervene in any odd occurrence happening on earth is clearly evident. If we could gain His favor, He would be one we could go to with any need.

Genesis: The Book of Foundations - The Bible Teaching CommentaryThis is just a sample of the great amount of materials found in the book: Genesis: The Book of Foundations. Only some of our Genesis materials have been put on the web. The Old Testament Library

Or better yet, for a little bit more get the Old Testament Library which has this book along with powerpoints, videos and hundreds of other articles, all presented with understanding and applying God's Word to our lives. Great deal!

Man, however, cannot go directly to God. God is too immense and holy. Man needs a priest to mediate between man and God.Melchizedek was this one. He could intercede on behalf of Abram. When Abram would bring a request to God, then Melchizedek would bring it before God.

There is no evidence at all that Abram went to Salem to gain Melchizedek’s help. He directly sworn to the “LORD God Most high‘ (22).

Abram no doubt did this on spot where he lived through prayer. But behind the scenes, God has mobilized the high priest to bring this prayer to Him and then mobilized this king to assist him in this battle.
