Thankful for a Priest–forever!

Scripture reading for June 29th:  Psalms 107-111

Key Scriptures:  Psalm 110:2-4  “The Lord will extend Your mighty scepter from Zion; You will rule in the midst of Your enemies.  Your troops will  be willing on Your day of battle.  Arrayed in holy majesty, from the womb of the dawn You will receive the dew of Your youth.  The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind:  “You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.”” 

King David wrote the 110th psalm about a conversation he listened to described as  “The Lord said to My Lord:”  (Vs. 1)  This was a prophetic psalm that is quoted seven times in the New Testament and by Jesus Himself in three of the Gospels.  Jesus Christ, a son of David, and the Son of God would rule from Zion, even in the midst of His enemies.  He would be declared the Son of God through resurrection from the dead.  From the womb of the grave, at dawn of  the third day, He received the dew of His youth!  He was made a Priest forever–after the order of Melchizedek!

Rejoice in Jesus Christ:  “How is it that they say the Christ is the Son of David?  David himself declares in the Book of Psalms: “The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”  (Luke 20:41-43)
