Let Us Go On - Studies in Melchizedek - CCS by Arlen L Chitwood and published by Classics.

Melchizedek is introduced in Scripture as a king-priest in Jerusalem, and he forms a type of Christ as King-Priest in Jerusalem during the coming day of His power, during the coming Messianic Era. This is clearly seen to be the case through both of the Old Testament references to Melchizedek (Genesis 14:18 &19; Psalm 110:4) and the place which Melchizedek occupies in Hebrews chapters five through seven.

Both Old Testament references are Messianic in their scope of fulfilment, as are the references in the Book of Hebrews. In this respect, Christ is not presently exercising a priestly ministry after the order of Melchizedek, for Melchizedek was also a king in Jerusalem as well. Rather, Christ, is presently exercising a priestly ministry after the order of Aaron, who ministered in the sanctuary on the basis of shed blood, on behalf of a redeemed people. Christ is presently ministering in the sanctuary (the heavenly), on the basis of shed blood (His Own), for a redeemed people (for Christians).

In keeping with the manner in which Scripture has been structured, Melchizedek appears in Genesis chapter fourteen in a particular setting at a particular time; and, within this setting and time, God established fundamental truths from which He could later draw spiritual lessons in order to teach His people deep spiritual truths concerning the various things having to do with His Son's coming reign over the earth. These foundational truths were established during Abraham’s day

through the record of that which occurred in Genesis chapter fourteen. Then the writer of the Psalm 110 drew from this account, as did the writer of Hebrews 5 – 7.
