A priest, AND a king?

22 Nov

Hello again!

This is what God gave me today in his word:

where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek. For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him,

(6:20 – 7:1)”or this Melchizedek, king of Sale, Priest of the Most High God” Wow! Hold the phone a minute, I thought it was impossible for someone to be both a priest and a king? What’s up here? This is a hard question, but it can be answered. Who is the only one who is a prophet, priest, and king? Jesus. This is pointing forward to Jesus. The reason it’s pointing forward to Jesus, is because this is the only other person aside from Jesus to be a priest and king. On a side note here, the way Jesus the latter, is because: 1 He’s king because he is, frankly, ruler of all. 2 He’s prophet because he told of what would happen in the future. 3 He’s priest because he made atonement for all of us on the cross, Hallilughia! I couldn’t find the passage in scripture where it talks about Abraham and Melchizedek, but if you can, can you post it in the comments? Thanks.

that’s an interesting observation I had, please feel free to post your thoughts on the subject to.

I love picturing Jesus as a prophet, priest and king. I think it shows the trinity again. Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and God the father. Prophet, Priest, and King…. I think you can make the connections from there.

I hope you understood what I was trying to say today, and I’m sorry for being so brief on the subject, you see, I remember reading this passage in scripture with my family, we got a lot more out of it then, I just wish I could remember what we were talking about… If I could do that, this would be a little more “full”.

 

You are loved!

    Hi Joshua. The Bible passage where the record of Abram and Melchizedek is found is Genesis chapter 14.
    i think you would love some stuff written by a buddy of mine, Wayne Stocks. It’s about the prophecies concerning Jesus, and this week it was about Jesus as King. Here’s the link.

    He also wrote about Jesus as Priest.

    It’s brief and easy to read. Hope you enjoy it.

    By the way, I look forward to your posts and have your blog in my feed reader.
    God bless, Lin
