Before Abram could receive the ministry of Melchizedek in Genesis 14, he had to first conquer some Babylonian Kings.
Abram’s journey in Genesis 14 illustrates a kingdom truth in our day. In this Kingdom Day, God’s people will come out of Babylon. We will temporarily go back into the world (i.e., Egypt), but then we will return to our Promised Land. There we must first conquer the rulership of the Babylonian practices and mindsets in our own lives before we can receive the ministry of Melchizedek. We must dethrone the same Babylonian kings that Abram did.
The Babylonian kings’ names indicate that we must overthrow darkness, deception, savagery, mercilessness, false positions, and producing after the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.* These are the mindsets within each one of us – His kings and priests – that need to be crucified.
Please remember that Yeshua (Jesus) was crucified in the place of the skull – Golgotha – and He wore a crown of thorns on His head, which represents the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches being crucified. We know that he who believes that Yeshua is the Son of God, and in His death, burial and resurrection overcomes the world. We also know that the Melchizedek Company is made like unto the Son of God, so pay attention when you study Scripture to the phrase “Son of God,” because His Royal Priestly Order of Melchizedek will walk in the same manner of the Son of God manifesting the excellencies of His Everlasting Kingdom.
* Genesis 14:1 – Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedoorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of Goiim.
