The Prophet, Priest, and King

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Psalm 110:4

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

O-bservation:

Through the lips of His servant, King David, The Lord speaks of Jesus, the future “Prophet, Priest, and King.”

A-pplication:

This is a wonderful verse inasmuch as God is speaking of His Son, Jesus, but through the lips of King David, Jesus’ great grandfather 14 generations removed! Surely great grandfather David represented a prophet and a king, but here Father God says of Jesus that not only will He be a prophet and a king, He will also be a priest. However this prophet, priest, and king is like no other. Jesus doesn’t just have an occasional “Word” about the future; He in fact knows every detail concerning the future. Jesus isn’t just a king; He is the “King of Kings” for all time! Unlike ancient priests, Jesus doesn’t take a lamb and slay it for the remission of one’s sin; NO, He is the eternal “Lamb of God,” slain for all of humankind’s sin! Jesus is able to cleanse every person’s sin as the “Priest of Heaven.” If you are burdened down in any way today, take your burden to … “The Prophet, Priest, and King”—JESUS!

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

I thank You that You are altogether Amazing! I thank You, that in You, every need of my life is met in every way today. Amen
