JESUS IN PROPHECY:  A Priest Forever

| Spiry Tee

"The Lord has sworn And will not relent, “You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek.”
Psalms 110:4 NKJV

A priest's role is to offer gifts and sacrifices. The Lord Jesus as a priest offered His own body as a sacrifice for our sins in the presence of God.  When He was crushed,  wounded and bruised, it was all for our salvation and acceptance in the Presence of God.

There were many priests ordained by the law of Moses to offer sacrifices of animals in the earthly temple. They were of the Aaronic order. Jesus was none of them. His own priestly ministry was and is according to the order of Melchizedek.

This Melchizedek has no record of beginning and ending, allegorizing the Son of God who abides forever. Jesus was made priest after the power of an endless life (Hebrews 7:16). Under the Levitical priesthood, there were many high priests because they could not continue by reason of death.

Jesus stands alone in this priestly ministry for He has conquered death and continues forever. As a result He is able to save to the uttermost those who come to God by Him seeing He ever lives to make intercession for them.

And there's more good news: all who believe in Him are made kings and priests to God (Revelation 1:6). Since Jesus is High priest forever after the order of Melchizedek, it means believers are priests of the same order. We are made according to the power of an endless life. The law made men priests in the Old Testament. In the New Testament, eternal life makes men priests forever.

I am a priest according to the power of an endless life.
