Jesus, King and Priest

Psalm 110

Such a strong passage about the Messiah, which was written hundreds of years before Jesus had entered humanity. We see a revealing conversation between God the Father to the coming Messiah. Just to read this passage is to be reminded of the authority and power of Jesus. The powerful thing is Jesus was said to be a priest according to the order of Melchizedek. Melchizedek was not only a priest but he was a king. Not only do we serve a king with the authority and power to judge entire nations and to deal with major world leaders, we also have an eternal priest who intercedes to God on our behalf. David and the Israelites got this Psalm as a revelation of the Messiah to come. We read it and know this eternal priest and king personally by name...Jesus.
