The Joshua People

The Joshua People…

The high priest of Israel could never wear a kingly crown, nor could the king ever wear the high priestly robe. The kingship and the priesthood were two separate houses, two blood lines, two tribes – and 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 a man called “the Branch” who will be both king and priest.

Who is that man? Messiah. Jesus, Yeshua, who was both king, of the royal line of Israel, and priest of the New Covenant. The name of the high priest upon whom the crown was placed was “Joshua” – in Hebrew, “Yeshua” – in English, “Jesus.”

Even that points to the identity of Messiah the Branch – Jesus. So no one was allowed to be both king and priest – but Messiah. What does it tell us?

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

Listen, High Priest Joshua, you and your associates seated before you, who are men symbolic of things to come: I am going to bring my servant, the Branch. Zechariah 3:8

Seek to know the Lord today as both King of your life, the one you must submit to, and worship – and High Priest, the one who knows, who feels, who sympathizes for you, and helps you in all that you do.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
