Melchizedek, as priest blesses Abram
Psalm 110:4 says that the priesthood of Jesus Christ on the order of Melchizedek
Hebrews 7:3 describes Melchizedek as without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually. It is unknown whether he was the pre-incarnate Christ or if his genealogy was just not recorded.
Abram gives to the Lord, through Melchizedek, a tithe of all - one tenth not of his income, but of his assets.
In our covenant love with the Lord we give Him all of ourselves, and He gives us all of Himself. Be overjoyed as you present your tithe to Him!
