The Order of Melchizedek
Melchizedek …called by God as High Priest according to the order of Melchizedek, of whom we have much to say, and hard to explain… ; Heb 5:10-11
Land of Confusion The Order of Melchizedek is an ancient mystical priesthood, serving the universe since there have been souls evolving. The name comes from the Hebrew "Melchi," meaning king, and "Zedek," meaning righteousness or the right use of consciousness. The purpose of the order is to bring divine energies into human form and to guide civilizations of the universe into higher levels of evolution, through consciousness shifts and physical influence. We work directly with this mystical order, rather than with any human- based organization.

Ex19:5-6 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light… - 1Pet.2:9

Rule in the midst of Your enemies! Your people shall be volunteers in the day of Your power; In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth.

Melchizedek: Fulfillment Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord erected, and not man Heb 8:1-2 Hebrews written to Greek-speaking Jewish Christians who were being drawn back to Judaism
Melchizedek: Fulfillment Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another priest should rise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be called according to the order of Aaron? For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law. For He of whom these things are spoken belongs to another tribe, from which no man has officiated at the altar. Heb 7:11-13 The priesthood of Christ is in the priestly order of Melchizedek.
Melchizedek In the presence of the Pope or Bishop: After the reading of the Psalm we say: Let us exalt him in the church of his people, and bless him in the assembly of the elders, for he makes his families like a flock, the righteous will see and be glad. The Lord swore and will not relent, you are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. At the conclusion of the service: You received the grace of Moses, the priesthood of Melchizedek. You received the honor of our father Peter the head of the apostles.
