    Melchizedek, a priest king of Salem (peace) who had no beginning and no end, was a type/figure of Christ.

    Here are the quotes of EGW concerning Melchizedek and Christ. She didn't say he was/is Jesus.

    It was Christ that spoke through Melchizedek, the priest of the most high God. Melchizedek was not Christ, but he was the voice of God in the world, the representative of the Father. And all through the generations of the past, Christ has spoken; Christ has led His people, and has been the light of the world. {1SM 409.3}

    God has never left Himself without witness on the earth. At one time Melchisedek represented the Lord Jesus Christ in person, to reveal the truth of heaven, and perpetuate the law of God (Letter 190, 1905). It was Christ that spoke through Melchisedek, the priest of the most high God. Melchisedek was not Christ, but he was the voice of God in the world, the representative of the Father. {1BC 1092.8,9}

    As they question, “Who is this?” the disciples, filled with the spirit of inspiration, answer this question. In eloquent strains they repeat the prophecies concerning Christ: {DA 578.2}
    Adam will tell you, It is the seed of the woman that shall bruise the serpent’s head. {DA 578.3}
    Ask Abraham, he will tell you, It is “Melchizedek King of Salem,” King of Peace. Genesis 14:18. {DA 578.4}
    Jacob will tell you, He is Shiloh of the tribe of Judah. {DA 578.5}
    Isaiah will tell you, “Immanuel,” “Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 7:14; 9:6. {DA 578.6}
    Jeremiah will tell you, The Branch of David, “the Lord our Righteousness.” Jeremiah 23:6. {DA 578.7}
    Daniel will tell you, He is the Messiah. {DA 579.1}
    Hosea will tell you, He is “the Lord God of hosts; the Lord is His memorial.” Hosea 12:5. {DA 579.2}
    John the Baptist will tell you, He is “the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” John 1:29. {DA 579.3}

    The quote in DA points to the prophecy concerning Christ, not saying Christ is Melchizedek.
