JESUS – OUR HIGH PRIEST IN THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK – DAY 35

JESUS - OUR HIGH PRIEST IN THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK

JESUS – OUR HIGH PRIEST IN THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK

Father Abraham meets with an interesting figure in his return from rescuing Lot.  He sure had prayed and made some serious promises to GOD on his way to the war zone.    In a fit that is nothing short of a miracle, Abraham rescues Lot and the kings of sodom, and in keeping with his pledge to GOD he refuses any compensation for his services, citing his resolve to avoid any tongues wagging that they were the reason for his prosperity.
JESUS – JESUS – JESUS – JESUS
JESUS – JESUS – JESUS – JESUS
Genesis 14:21-24
Now the king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the persons, and take the goods for yourself.” But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have raised my hand to the Lord, God Most High, the Possessor of heaven and earth, that I will take nothing, from a thread to a sandal strap, and that I will not take anything that is yours, lest you should say, “I have made Abram rich’— except only what the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men who went with me: Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.”
It was after this riveting account of GOD riding on the confidence of HIS servant to bring victory that we are introduced to Melchizedek.   Unmistakably peculiar is his list of credentials.
JESUS – JESUS – JESUS – JESUS
JESUS – JESUS – JESUS – JESUS
Hebrews 7:1-4
This Melchizedek was king of Salem and priest of God Most High. He met Abraham returning from the defeat of the kings and blessed him, and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything. First, the name Melchizedek means “king of righteousness”; then also, “king of Salem” means “king of peace.” Without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.
Just think how great he was: Even the patriarch Abraham gave him a tenth of the plunder!


Notable among these are:

That he had no beginning or ending of days,

He is king of Salem,

He is Priest of the Most High.

Jesus is our Melchizedek.  He has no beginning and no end.  He is our great High Priest standing before the Father to intercede for us. He is the Prince of Peace.


Prayer Focus:

  1. Give thanks for the love of GOD demonstrated to us in sending the LORD JESUS to die in our place.
  2. Give thanks that HE Ever lives to intercede for us.
  3. Give thanks that he lives and receives our tithes.
  4. Give thanks that your eyes are open by revelation to see and receive HIM.
  5. Pray that truth of HIS Priesthood and intercession for you should not fizzle out because of neglect and forgetfulness.

VICTORY IS INEVITABLE

#Victory_is_inevitableThe Genesis account on creation makes it abundantly clear that man was meant to rule over the earth and everything therein.  And although satan interfered, the Holy mandate has never changed. In fact the reason for Salvation was to redeem man from the wrath incurred because of the fall and graciously set him back on trek with the program of dominion.

The challenge that now remains is to alert the heirs of God’s incredible provision of the ploy by the powers of darkness to delay, derail and if possible deny them of their great life and destiny.  And since every man under the sun has a best before date, the mission to inform and inspire is all the more urgent. We must go to the highways and the byways and with enthusiasm and skill share of the Love that restores.

The Lord loves His people. The price paid can never go to waste.  The Blood speaks and the resistant  forces of evil must bow.  Great victories await. Holy Spirit is delighted to energize and direct all who are willing.  The promise is sure. The time is now. The rewards are eternal.  We dare not miss our moment!  March on! Destiny calls.
