My dear brother in the Lord, and son in the faith, greetings in Jesus Name. Grace, Peace, Blessings & Shalom; in the Name above all Names!
It is Written; every knee shall bow, on the earth below and of the heavens above (both creatures great and small).
All shall bow and every tongue confess, Jesus Christ is Lord! He is not just Lord, He is God in flesh. He died on the cross, He rose from the grave on the third day, and ascended up to Heaven, is seated on the right hand of the Father, interceding for us on our behalf.
Remember He is our Chief High Priest, after the order of Melchizedek.
5 So also Christ did not glorify Himself to become High Priest, but it was He who said to Him: You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. 6 As He also says in another place: You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek; 7 who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear, 8 though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. 9 And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him, 10 called by God as High Priest according to the order of Melchizedek,(Heb 5:5-10 NKJ).
When looking at this Scripture we find the following points:-
1 our Lord was obedient unto death
2 He suffered on our behalf
3 He didn’t glorify Himself to become High Priest
4 He was appointed High Priest after the order of Melchizedek
5 He offerered prayers, supplications & intercession
6.He was begotten of the Father
7 He was heard because of Godly fear
8 He’s the Author of our Salvation
9 He suffered many things
10 He’s perfect
11 His Heavenly Father glorified Him
12 He was saved from death & destruction
13 He intercedes for us
To name a few.
When comparing these attributes, in Scripture we learn more of our Lord Jesus, our Messiah. He paid the highest price, for us, so we could have Life, and Life in abundance (Jn10:10b).
He constantly intercedes for us, on our behalf. He rules & reigns from His Heavenly Home, over all creation, over the heavens & the earth.
Knowing He is our Chief High Priest, enables us ; to rule and reign, with & through Him in heavenly places. We are able to say these things, because we’re seated with Him in heavenly places (Eph1:3).
*Glory to God*
Scripture also reminds us; “as He is so are we in this world (see 1Jn 3:1-3). Remember He is also the King of kings; He is our eldest Brother, the First Born of many brothers.
There’s so much more I’d love to share with you, and other believers. Yet time and space is limited, although our Lord and God is unlimited. As our Lord, space and time enables me. I’ll share more & further, later with you.
To God be all the Glory, now in this life & the life here after, into all eternity, for evermore.
Together in the Lord’s Harvest
Ian, Joan & family.
