Psalms, chapter 110


We have a high print.Christ Himself is talking on our behalf in heaven, we are to rejoice and repent.

Our Bible reading for today is from Psalms 110, the verse of reference in  is: 

 “The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind: “You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.” (Psalms 110:4 NIV).

Challenge:

Trusting in Christ, our high priest forever.

Historical Review.-  Psalm 110 is the most quoted in the New Testament because of its clear references about the Messiah. It is a real and Messianic Psalm. Both Jews and Christians consider it a Messianic Psalm, and this view was confirmed by Jesus when he cited to prove his deity (Luke 20:42). This psalm contains two themes: 1) emphasizes the kingship of the Messiah, 2) emphasizes his royal priesthood. Each begins with a divine promise, declares his subject position as king and priest, promises its domain, from Sion, the kings of the earth. Contrast voluntary devotion of his people with the overthrow of nations and shows King-Priest himself, always with new vigor which lives for eternity. 

Melchizedek king of Salem and priest .- The name Melchizedek, connotes mystery. He comes to bless Abraham, who acknowledges his preeminence as a priest, and gives the tithe of the spoils (Gen 14:20). Abraham says that “God Almighty” Melchizedek was none other than the Lord himself (14:22) 

Jesus: Priest after the order of Melchizedek – The deepest of prophecy is when aided by a divine oath: The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind: “You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek” (Ver. 4). Let us draw near to Christ, our high priest: “We have every reason to trust God and to bring all our concerns and anxieties to Christ Jesus, so that we can become more familiar with him should not be difficult to remember that the Lord Jesus wants you we take all our problems and perplexities. Introduce them to the Lord in prayer, and then let their perplexities and burdens with Him (ATO 178) 

Prayer 

Eternal Father and our God. Thanks for providing a high priest who intercedes continually before your presence. We pray that his blood shed on the cross cover all our confessed sins  and always intercede for our lives, and for all your people. In the name of Jesus, amen.
