    Melchizedek lived long before Lucifer was created.

    Melchizedek's priestly order has neither beginning of time nor end of days.

    The angels were created when God created the heavens and the earth. They are mortal beings locked in chronological time. Lucifer never was in God's timeless heaven.

    Melchizedek is the king of Salem.

    The city of Salem according to Josephus and the Aramic translations of the Bible, later becomes the city Jersalem.

    Looking at the name of the city more carefully, Jeru SALEM.

    Abraham tithes to one greater than himself.

    Who could possibly be greater than Abraham in the Old Testament?

    The genealogy of Melchizedek is non-existent even though he is a priest of God Almighty.

    Possibly the shadow priesthood that is later fulfilled by the Divine, Great High Priest. Since both Melchizedek and Jesus both have a priesthood not defined by the law. Abraham is reckoned righteous apart from the law and Melchizedek is the king of righteousness apart from the law.

    Melchizedek brought with him, bread and wine, when he met Abraham to bless him. (Genesis 14:18)

    The LORD has sworn and will not change His mind, “You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.” (Psalm 110:4)

    I like your comment about the King of Salem compared to JeruSALEM.

    How can you know the magnitude of Abraham? There are only a few lines of text about him in the Bible. He sent a posse after some bandits who stole his property and took some of his people captive. Abraham surrounded them and made them release the captives and give back his property, then he let them go. It is a type of person I learned about. As for detailed historical records, they are lacking.

    Who can discern this statement?
    John 8:58 Jesus said to them, “Most certainly, I tell you, before Abraham came into existence, I am. (World English Bible)

    Jesus also has no beginning of time nor end of days, He was before Abraham was born.

    definitely not ... he (Melchizedek) is described as a priest of God almighty.

    Satan/Lucifer is certainly no priest.

    Hebrews 5:6
    And in another passage God says: "You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek."
