Jesus, Priest And King
Daily Reading – Psa. 109-113 / 1 Cor. 2
Psalm 110:1 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:
Jesus. We call Him King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and rightly so. This little Psalm, tucked into the middle of our Bible is said to have been quoted by Jesus and the Apostles more than any other Psalm. It’s importance is not only in the statements made, but also in the subject of this Psalm. It could be none other than Jesus himself.
In Psalm 110:1 David calls Him Lord. This is prophetic in that David was promised that his kingdom rule would never end. For Jesus to be David’s Lord at that point in time, and later born into the lineage of David through His virgin birth to Mary, is a declaration of the Deity of Jesus before His birth. In verse 4 it says; “The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.” The entire Psalm points to Jesus’ authority. However verse 4 says so much. First, Melchizedek, like Christ, was also recognized as King and Priest. Genesis 14:18 “And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.” Also we see in Hebrews 7:3 that Melchizedek, like Christ, was ordained by God, had no beginning nor end, nor did his reign ever end. “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. Jesus, Our High Priest and our King for all time.
GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:
There’s a chorus that says, “Christ is all I need, Christ is all I need, All, all I need. He was crucified, For me He died, On Calvary, This is why I know That He loves me so, Christ is all I need.” He’s our Coming King, Our High Priest, Our Lord of Lords. He’s all we need.
What is He to you?
