About Discovering My God Series
God has a plan for the present crisis and for the most critical need of mankind as well. In discovering my God as He is, my life is forever changed!
Reading Genesis 14:18-24
And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; now he was a priest of God Most High. He blessed him and said,
“Blessed be Abram of God Most High,
Possessor of heaven and earth;
And blessed be God Most High,
Who has delivered your enemies into your hand.”
He gave him a tenth of all. The king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give the people to me and take the goods for yourself.” Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have sworn to the Lord God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth, that I will not take a thread or a sandal thong or anything that is yours, for fear you would say, ‘I have made Abram rich.’ I will take nothing except what the young men have eaten, and the share of the men who went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their share.”
This priest of “God Most High” walked onto the stage of God’s history of humanity in a transcendent awareness of God’s true identity. Melchizedek was a strange figure outside of time and of a future unimaginable reality. God is truly God Most High, with a plan for the present crisis and a forever plan for the most critical need of mankind.
