Hebrews 7 tells of Jesus, the high priest, after the order of Melchizedek. Thanks to this, animal sacrifices according to the Law are done away with, and “For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

Ezekiel 5. God told Ezekiel to prepare himself and prophesy that there will be a sword against Jerusalem.

Ezekiel 6, God proclaimed judgment on idolatrous Israel.

Ezekiel 7. And this judgment on Israel was to be in their near future,

Hebrews 7, Jesus Christ, high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.

Melchizedek was either a real person, king of Salem, later to be named Jerusalem, or he was a Christophany, that is a manifestation of Jesus Christ.

Psalm 110:4 The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
