Who Is Melchizedek [2]

Tuesday 27th October 2020 Devotion
Scripture:- Genesis 14:1-24
Topic:- Who Is Melchizedek [2]
Text:- Psalm 110:4

  1. King Of Righteousness:
    Melchizedek was addressed as king of righteousness in Hebrews 7:2. This is to say he rules over righteousness.
    Melchizedek is an old Canaanite name which literally translates as King of Righteousness.
    Some translations indicate it literally meant “My King Is Righteousness”. Whichever one you take, it is a fact that Melchizedek means King of Righteousness as the book of Hebrews clearly pointed out.
    To know who he is, we can go to the scriptures to trace who it is that rules over righteousness.
    In Hebrews 1:8 tells us If the sceptre of the Son of God is righteousness, could it mean Christ now has the sceptre of Melchizedek?
    If that is true, then where is Melchizedek from whom he collected the sceptre? We will find out as we read on as Priest of the Most High God.
    Without controversy, Melchizedek was called the priest of the most high God both in Genesis 14 and in Hebrews 7.
    His mention in other places of the Bible apart from Genesis was in fact connected to the pattern of his priesthood.
    In the Psalms, David was saying, the LORD said unto David’s Lord (The Lord Jesus Christ) that He is a priest after the order of Melchizedek.
    In a bid to expand and show how Christ is truly a Priest after the order of Melchizedek, the author of Hebrews brought the priesthood of Melchizedek into light.
    The questions that will then linger in our minds is the location of the Temple where Melchizedek was a Priest. We will get to find out as we dig deeper into the scriptures which has the answer to all our questions.
  2. Who Then IS(WAS) This Man:
    No Father, No Mother, No Descent, Hebrews 7:3. Without father, without mother, without descent.
    Melchizedek is a man without descent or lineage. He wasn’t fathered by any man neither had he any mother. Such a man clearly had no human or family ties.
    He came from God and returned to God after his meeting with Abraham. He wasn’t born and there was evidence that he still lives.
    In John 16:27-28 tells us that passage ring a bell? It seems what Christ said He will do was what Melchizedek had already done, coming from God and returning to God.
    This is because he never died and he is not on the earth at this moment.
    This means Melchizedek had no beginning nor end. The only other person with such a title is Jesus Christ in the book of Revelation 1:8.
    I must say the resemblance of this man with the Lord Jesus Christ is alarming. He is still a Priest to this day. See Hebrews 7:3,8; Psalm 110:4.
    It is necessary at this point to bring to light the fact that the Psalms clearly made us understand Melchizedek is still a Priest unto this day.
    David made it clear Christ’s Priesthood will be forever, after the order of Melchizedek.
    That is to say, Melchizedek’s Priesthood will be forever and that of Christ would also follow that order. It therefore, means Melchizedek is still a Priest unto this day.
    That is settled without a doubt. The last passage above also put any doubt to bed, that Melchizedek still lives today.

Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, help me to live in peace and righteousness always henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Great Tuesday!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
