Abraham pays tithes to and worships Melchizedek.
God has appeared to men all throughout the pages of the bible. He was called the Angel of the Lord in most places but referenced and worshipped as the LORD by those who knew Him.
HEBREWS 7:2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, KING OF PEACE;
3 WITHOUT FATHER, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, NOR END OF LIFE; but made like unto the SON OF GOD; abideth a priest continually. 4 Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils. 
HEBREWS 7:24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, UNDEFILED, SEPARATE FROM SINNERS, and made higher than the heavens;

The writer of Hebrews is clearly stating that JESUS is the same BEING as MELCHIZEDEK seeing that they both have an endless life. Is this the preincarnate Christ? While the bible does not explain how Melchizedek could be Jesus, there can be no mistaking that they are one and the same, however, if Melchizedek is the PREINCARNATE Christ, how could He be a man. Notice that He does not have a FATHER. Abraham also saw this man before the judgement of Sodom and Gomorrah when three men visited him:

GENESIS 18:22 And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet BEFORE THE LORD. 23 And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? 33 And THE LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.

GENESIS 19:1 And there came TWO ANGELS to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;

Clearly here we see that two of the three men that appeared to Abraham left and went to the city of Sodom. The scripture states in Hebrews 19 that they were angels. So these three men WERE NOT THE TRINITY as many people teach. The one man that stayed behind was clearly worshipped as the LORD by Abraham, the others were NOT. Abraham pleaded with Him for the innocent people in Sodom and Gomorrah.

My conclusion is that God is a Spiritual being who has the same form as a man because the bible says we were made in His image. We were created as spiritual beings in His image but He breathed our spirit and soul into our flesh in our mother's womb. There is none other that has NO BEGINNING and NO END but the LORD. As Jesus claimed in

Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

So Melchizedek, one of the three men who visited Abraham and also the one that Jacob wrestled with are all manifestations of GOD HIMSELF who created the flesh body in Mary and placed Himself into it.

GENESIS 32:30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have SEEN GOD FACE TO FACE, and my life is preserved.

These were manifestations of JESUS who is GOD who also became flesh and dwelt among us to die for our sins in the flesh. Notice that the writer of Hebrews states that He has NO FATHER and NO MOTHER and that He is the KING OF PEACE. He had to become flesh to die for us because GOD has NO BEGINNING and NO END OF LIFE. The SON of GOD who IS FLESH was BEGOTTEN and had a beginning. After being resurrected, however, He lives forever. So God who is a SPIRIT lives forever in the glorified flesh of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!
