Well, Abram’s never had communion before. Common union with the most high God-he’s never done that. So all of a sudden, Melchizedek comes out of nowhere, and he pops up with bread and wine to serve him communion, to common union and fellowship with God, and all of a sudden, Abram feels this compulsion to give him tithe. Well, what’s a tithe? It’s like someone who’s never eaten meat before asking, “What’s a cheeseburger?” He doesn’t know, so he had to have divine revelation, and who’s going to give him divine revelation but the divine one standing in front of him?

And here he says, “He gives him tithe of all.” And so Melchizedek, priest and king of the most high order, says-he blesses him. And he blesses him in the order of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth, and the one who delivers from all our enemies. Let’s stop and think about that.

Here he’s being blessed; here he gives tithes, and there’s three very, very, very, very, very crucial statements right here. He says, “And blessed-and he blessed him.” Hold that word blessed. All through the Bible, you hold the word blessed, from the blessing of Abraham, the Abraham blessing. Don’t let that pass your mind. It’s not getting deep, I promise we’ll muddle through this. Melchizedek, king of Salem, brought forth bread and wine. He was the priest of the most high God. He was the representation of the most high God. He was the spirit of the most high God. And he blessed him and said-here’s what he said. “Blessed be Abram of the most high God.” Number one, the most high God just blessed him.

Number two, the possessor of heaven and earth just blessed him.

And number three, the one who delivers him from all of your enemies just blessed you, and instantly, Abram gave him a tithe. Because when you get a spiritual revelation on one hand, you’ve got to get the spiritual revelation on the other hand. If Melchizedek gives him the spiritual revelation on who he is, he’s also going to give him a spiritual revelation on how he’s supposed to act.

Now look at most high God. God is El Elyon. El Elyon means “the most high.” Let me tell you something about water. Do you all know anything about the properties of water? I am not a scientific genius, but I know that water expresses itself three ways. It’s liquid. You boil it and it becomes steam. You freeze it, and it becomes ice. It’s still H2O. It’s still water with the same properties of water, right? It’s simply expressed in three different ways. Correct?
