(for they have become priests without an oath, but He with an oath by Him who said to Him:
“ The LORD has sworn
And will not relent,
‘ You are a priest forever
According to the order of Melchizedek’”),
by so much more Jesus has become a surety of a better covenant.
Also there were many priests, because they were prevented by death from continuing.
But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood.
Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens;
who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.
For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever.Hebrews 7: 20-28
Good morning ladies,
Do you ever sit and think about the story of Melchizedek? I love to sit and ponder this mystery...who was he, where did he come from? A man with no lineage. Was he our Savior and Lord or just a priest? There are so many wonderful mysteries hidden in God's Word and my prayer for each one of us would be that we would take the time to sit quietly before Him and ponder the deep things He has hidden in His Word.
Have a lovely day ladies and don't forget to stop by Pam's blog Grey Like Snuffie to find more verses starting with the letter Z.
