WHAT IS THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK?
Melchizedek is a soul energy that is ancient, dating back to before the time of Abraham. As a person, Melchizedek incarnated as a priest during the establishment of Ur in Salem, or Jerusalem, and has come back onto physical form whenever the influence was needed by the planet, the last being Jesus, the Christ. Biblical references can be found in Genesis 14:28-20, Hebrews 5:7-10, Hebrews 6:16-20, Psalm 100, and Hebrews 7:1-17 which ends. “Thou are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.” Every Catholic, Episcopalian, and Lutheran priest is ordained into the Order of Melchizedek.
Each person that is moved to take the step to become a priest of the Order of Melchizedek has been prepared through lifetimes and was born already having made the decision to become a priest. Regarding formal training, it was said, Jesus didn't tell the disciples to go to four years of seminary. He told them to teach people to love one another. Each person has had experiences in life and education, both formal and informal, which has been a preparation for their personal ministry, and any future studies chosen will be exactly perfect for preparation of their work.
In taking this step, a person commits him/herself to teach and to heal. That does not mean to quit their job and get a church. It means to be available to those who come into their lives to teach “love”, to help people draw from their highest, most loving selves when making decisions in their lives. Also, to help others realize they can open themselves up to God's healing energy which can flow through each one of us. Each priest is encouraged not to compare themselves with others as each one is unique and valuable in his or her own way. The Order is coming into the physical form now because of the Earth transformation that is taking place. It last came into being in preparation for the coming of Christ. Several groups are simultaneously emerging, beginning to do ordinations into the Order of Melchizedek, totally independent and many times unaware of each other's existence.
There is no doctrine they must follow other than to follow the “Golden Rule” of treating everyone with love and respect. If there is anything upon which we all agree is that there is only one God. We all come from the same source and that source is “Unconditional Love”. We never say that our way is the only way. There are many paths to God, but the basis of all true spiritual work is “love”. We encourage each priest to wait to be asked before beginning to teach someone. Respect for individual free will must be recognized. Without “freedom” we die; therefore choose life. And no one is ready to learn until he or she seeks to find the answers.
Each minister/priest is legally ordained under the Christ Alliance Tetra Trikaya, an incorporated, non-denominational metaphysical and holistic organization in the State of New Jersey. Each person receives an ordination certification and, in the United States, is able to perform weddings, which is the only legal act a minister performs. Regulations vary from state to state, as well as from county to county, as to legal requirements to perform a wedding ceremony. One must research rules pertaining to the particular area where the marriage license is obtained. Regarding other countries, at this time, priests in Canada are not able to legally perform marriage ceremonies. As for France, Denmark, India, Egypt and any other countries where priests reside, one would have to research the requirements for each individual country.
Many priests have chosen to work in health-related areas, some are already ordained in other religions, a few have pastorates, many work with death and dying, some with battered wives and children, at rape crisis centers, prison ministry, but most of us are accountants, bartenders, carpenters, office workers, business executives, homemakers; we are in all walks of life and at different ages.
I hope this information helps those of you who are considering ordination as well as those of you who are families and friends of someone who had made this choice to become ordained into the Order.
