We have already seen that Jesus fulfilled the prophecies of Melchizedek by bringing the bread and wine of the Passover which were the symbols of Melchizedek and giving us the blessings of forgiveness of sins and eternal life. But the bible says the complete fulfillment of the prophecies about Melchizedek would be fulfilled in the last days when Christ is coming for the second time to give us the salvation. Just like other prophecies of the bible, the prophecies of Melchizedek must be carried out by the Second Coming Christ.
More Prophecies of Melchizedek
Even though Jesus fulfilled the Order of Melchizedek by coming as high priest in the Order of Melchizedek and granting eternal life through the bread and wine of the Passover which represent his flesh and blood, the bible says this was not the complete fulfillment.
Hebrews 5:11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. 12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!
“this” in this context means “Mechizedek” because he was explaining about Jesus fulfilling the prophecies of Melchizedek from Verse 1 to 10. But he says he cannot explain everything about Melchizedek 2000 years ago because the prophecies of Melchizedek contains some hard things that could not be properly explained at that time. So he says the time would come that saints of God must learn the prophecy from the beginning again as baby who eat milk, not the solid food. Then what prophecies were hard to understand at that time and remain unfulfilled? Then when would those prophecies be fulfilled?
Hebrews 7:1 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, 2 and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything. First, the name Melchizedek means “king of righteousness”; then also, “king of Salem” means “king of peace.” 3 Without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.
And finally, in Chapter 7 of the same book he reveals more characteristics of Melchizedek which were hard to explain at that time. We have already seen that Melchizedek was the priest of God who blessed Abraham with the offerings of “bread and wine.” And we can see that he is actually God himself since it is only God who can be told to be “without beginning of days or end of life.” But still there are two more characteristics about Melchizedek which have not been fully explained until this time: that is, “without father or mother” and “without genealogy.” Therefore, let us think about these characteristics a little bit more.
Without Father or Mother
First, what is the meaning of “without father or mother”? Nobody on this earth can be born without father or mother. According to the providence of God everything on this earth such as animals, birds, fish, plants, including human beings must be given life through father and mother. That is why Jesus was born through a family system when he came down to this earth even though he was God himself who could have appeared without going through those cumbersome processes.
Therefore, “without father or mother” must have some hidden meaning like all the words of God in the bible. Then what is the meaning of the phrase?
Matthew 12:46 While Jesus was still talking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, wanting to speak to him. 47 Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.” 48 He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” 49 Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. 50 For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
At this scene the physical family members of Jesus was waiting outside, but he pointed his disciples and said, “These are my family because they are the ones who are doing the will of God.” Through this he was teaching us the true family are the spiritual family, not the physical family. So the true father, mother, brothers, or sisters are the ones who believe in God and follow God’s commands. In this sense, a physical father, mother, brothers or sisters who do not do the will of God are not considered as the true family members.
Through this we can understand the meaning of “without father or mother.” It means that this Melchizedek must come from a family who do not believe in God or do the will of God. In other words he must come from a non-believing family members who do not believe in God.
The second characteristic of Melchizedek which has not been understood until now is “without genealogy.” In the bible, the genealogy or family ancestry is always that of Jews because the bible records the history of physical Jews. Therefore, without genealogy means, the true Melchizedek must come from outside the Jewish ancestry, which means he must come from a Gentile country.
But if we look at Jesus with these two conditions of Melchizedek, things do not make sense. First, Jesus did not come from the family of non-believers; on the other hand, the bible describes the physical father and mother of Jesus was believers of God and considered as “righteous” in the eyes of God. (Matthew 1:19, Luke 1:28) Both of Jesus’ parents were believers of God. If not, how can they be deemed righteous by God and gained favors of God.
And also the second condition of Melchizedek, “without genealogy” does not match with Jesus Christ because he is clearly recorded as one from the Jewish genealogy and he did not come from a Gentile nation.
Matthew 1:1 This is the genealog of Jesus the Messiah the son of David, the son of Abraham: 2 Abraham was the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob, Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers, …. 16 and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, and Mary was the mother of Jesus who is called the Messiah.
Through this genealogy, we can absolutely know that Jesus came from the Jewish ancestry and he HAD his part in the genealogy of the Jews.
Christ Ahnsahnghong, The True Melchizedek
Because of these reasons, Paul said that he wanted to teach more things about Melchizedek, but he could not because some things were hard to understand because those characteristics of Melchizedek did not match with Jesus. Even though he was the priest of God who blessed God’s people with “bread and wine,” the symbols of Melchizedek and he was God in the flesh, he could not completely fulfill the prophecies of Melchizedek because there were some prophecies which could not be explained through Jesus Christ.
That is why to fulfill all the prophecies of the bible Christ must come again for the second time so that we know the complete truth and become grown-ups who can digest even solid foods too. The knowledge of the Melchizedek was not complete 2000 years ago, but it would be made perfect when he comes to fulfill the remaining prophecies.
Hebrews 9:28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
Then when Christ appears a second time, how can we know who the Christ is? Let us take a look at all the requirements of Christ when he comes to fulfill the prophecies of the spiritual Melchizedek. First, he must come from a family of non-believers of God to fulfill the prophecy of “without father or mother.” And second, he must come from a Gentile nation which has nothing to do with the Jewish genealogy to fulfill the prophecy of “without genealogy.” And third, he must bring the bread and wine of the Passover to prove that he is the true Melchizedek. Then who fulfilled all these prophecies and appeared to us for the second time to give us salvation? It is Christ Ahnsahnghong.
He came from parents who did not believe in God and did not do the will of God. Therefore, they could not be considered as father or mother since they did not belong to the spiritual family of believers of God. Also, he came from the land of Korea, which has nothing to do with a Jewish genealogy to fulfill the prophecy of “without genealogy.” And most importantly, he brought back the bread and wine of the Passover, the true signs of Melchizedek, which was abolished 325 AD by the work of Satan. Therefore, we can surely say that Christ Ahnsahnghong is the true high priest in the Order of Melchizedek whose ministry is eternal and thus whose blessings are everlasting because he is God.
Passover and Second Coming Christ
The bible teaches that the one who restores the Passover is God who can give us eternal life.
Isaiah 25:6 On this mountain (Zion) the Lord Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine— the best of meats and the finest of wines. 7 On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; 8 he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth.The Lord has spoken.
The Mountain of God is Zion (Isaiah 24:23). Since Zion is the place where God’s festivals are kept, the feast or banquet described in this prophecy must be one of the festivals of God. Then what is this festival? The thing prepared for this banquet reveals the nature of this festival. It is about the Passover since this festival is kept with “wine” and among all the festivals of God it is only the Passover which uses wine as main offering. And also the work of wine also tells us this must be the Passover. Because it is only the Passover wine which has power to destroy death and give us eternal life just as Jesus said, “Whoever eats my flesh (bread) and drinks my blood (wine) has eternal life and I will raise him up at the last day.”
Then what is this Passover? According to the bible Christ is the Melchizedek who would bring bread and wine of Passover. And therefore, the Passover must be kept two times first in the time of the first coming and second in his second coming. Then is this prophecy concerned about his first coming or second coming. We can get the answer from the characteristic of this wine used in the festivals: “Aged wine.” Aged wine is the wine which was kept hidden or stored in a secret place for a long time. So this is about the Passover which would be kept in the last day when it was brought back after long abolishment.
Jesus and Disciples kept the Passover with bread and wine according to the command of Christ and they could receive the forgiveness of sins and eternal life by the ministry of Jesus who fulfilled the Order of Melchizedek. But in 325 AD, the Passover was abolished by the Roman Emperor Constantine in the council of Nicaea. Since then nobody could receive the blessings of the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. The wine of Passover has become kept hidden and stored for a long time until the Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong restored the Passover though his ministry of the Order of Melchizedek.
Therefore, this prophecy is concerned about the Passover wine which would be restored in the last day after long abolishment. That is why this Passover wine is called “aged wine,” not just wine or new wine. Then who is the one who has the authroity and power to restore the Passover wine again in the last days?
Isaiah 25:9 In that day they will say, “Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the Lord, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”
In the book of Isaiah, God teaches us that it is God himself who restores the Passover and bringing salvation to his people. “Surely” or without any doubt, this is our God. Then who is Christ Ahnsahnghong who restored the Passover of the New Covenant by giving us his flesh and blood through the bread and wine of Passover so that we can receive the blessings of the forgiveness and eternal life? Surely without any doubt he is our God “without the beginning of days or end of life.”
Through all these fulfillments of the prophecies we can surely say that Christ Ahnsahnghong is the true Melchizedek who came to this earth for the second time to complete the mission of Melchizedek so that we can be blessed in this last day. He gave us his flesh and blood for us so that we sinners could be forgiven our sins and recieve eternal life. The bible says about the people in the last days who will come to know the complete fulfillment of the prophecies of Melchizedek:
Hebrews 5:13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
God wants us to know the truth by studying the complete fulfillment of the prophecies of the bible and to have complete knowledge to distinguish good from evil. All the prophecies of Melchizedek, David, Moses, etc were completely fulfilled by Christ Ahnsahnghong and now we must grow mature to know the true identity of Christ Ahnsahnghong even though he came as man in the flesh. With this knowledge we must say, “Surely Christ Ahnsahnghong is our God” as it is written in the bible.
And he let us know the true reality of flesh and blood of Christ, Heavenly Mother New Jerusalem. We should receive God the Father and God the Mother for our salvation. Amen.
