The mysterious “Melchizedek, king of Salem (or king of Peace) … was a priest to God Most High” (Genesis 14:18). He faithfully served “the Lord, God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth” (Genesis 14:22).


In the Hebrew language, “God Most High” is “El-Elyon.”


Outside of the story of Melchizedek, the Biblical name “El-Elyon” only appears in Psalm fifty-seven. “Be gracious to me, God, be gracious to me, for I take refuge in you. I will seek refuge in the shadow of your wings until danger passes. I call to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me. He reaches down from heaven and saves me” (Psalm 57:1–3).


We don’t serve a God who is limited.


He’s not God mostly-mighty. He is God Almighty (Genesis 17:1).


He’s not a God who is usually-righteous, but He is the “Righteous Father” (John 17:25), the “Righteous One” (1 John 2:1).


He doesn’t just comfort His children when He’s in the mood. He’s the “God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3).


And He’s certainly not God-really-high… He’s “God Most High!” There is no god so high, no god so mighty, no god so honorable. Jehovah is “God Most High!”


“… think on these things” (Philippians 4:8, KJV).
