Scripture: Psalm 110:3-4
Verses 3,4 state, “Your people shall be volunteers In the day of Your power; In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth. The LORD has sworn And will not relent, ‘You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek.’” Are people volunteering? Is this the day of His power? It appears that when the judicial power of God manifests, people will volunteer, because they will say “Yes” to the God of justice!” Verse 4 guarantees an eternal priesthood for the Lord Jesus Christ. He is a Priest forever, but after the order of Melchizedek, which begs the question, what kind of a priest was Melchizedek? Melchizedek was both a King and Priest. Melchizedek was an example of both. Today in the church we are an example of one. We are an example of the Priestly and we must grow into being an example of the Kingly. Kings judge and make war. Isn’t it time we learn how to judge and war with King Jesus.
