Priest And King

Priest And King…

The high priest of Israel could never become king, nor could the king ever become the high priest. The kingship and the priesthood were two separate bloodlines and tribes –They could never be joined.

Yet, in the book of Zechariah, God calls the prophet to place the crown on the high priest’s head and prophesy of “One” called “the Branch” who would be both king and priest. Who is that One? Messiah Yeshua, Jesus, who is both King, of the royal line of Israel, and High Priest after the order of Melchizadek.

The name of the high priest upon whom the crown was placed was “Joshua” or “Yehoshua” in Hebrew. “Yeshua” is a form of the same name; Nehemiah 8:17. Even that points to the identity of Messiah the Branch – Jesus. Thus, no one was allowed to be both king and priest but Jesus.

Jesus is always more than you think He is, better than you believe He is, and more wonderful. So get to know Him even more, because when it comes to Him, there’s no end to how much more there is to know.

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

Today, take time to get to know more of Jesus than you do now, because there is so much more of Him to know.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
