The First Time God Said The Word “Priests”

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain, saying, ‘Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob and tell the sons of Israel: “You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagle’s wings, and brought you to Myself. Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine; and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.” These are the words that you shall speak to the sons of Israel’” Exodus 19: 3-6 Yesterday I shared with you about the first time the word “priest” appears in Scripture which, w

Melchizedek and Jesus

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “After his [Abram’s] return from the defeat of Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him, the king of Sodom went out to meet him at the valley of Shaveh (that is, the King’s valley). And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; now he was a priest of God most High” Genesis 14:17-18 This is the first time the word “priest” appears in Scripture and it is in reference to the person of Melchizedek. This appearance of Melchizedek in Genesis is full-to-overflowing with prophetic Messianic truth for us concerning our “great High Priest” (Hebrews 4:14), Jesus Christ. The name, Melchizedek, means “king of righteousness” (Hebrews 7:2), while ki

You Have An Altar To The Lord

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Then Noah built an altar to the Lord” Genesis 8:20 As soon as Noah and his family exited the ark and were on dry ground, “Noah built an altar to the Lord.” Noah’s first act was to create a place where he would worship God. The first act of the first man after the flood was to build an altar, to worship and minister to God. Noah was literally a saved man in a new life, just as we are new creations in Jesus Christ, saved, with a new life in God. So let us immediately build our altar to the Lord too. But wait, for the truth is, when you and I received Jesus Christ as our salvation, that God made us a new creation with an altar of worship already within

Floating On The Surface Of The Water

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The water prevailed and increased greatly upon the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water” Genesis 7:17 No matter what judgement or tragedy befalls this world, please know, Christian, that the ark of your salvation, preservation, and safety is always “floating [peacefully] on the surface of the water.” In Jesus Christ, our risen and indwelling Savior, we have been given a new life as new creations in the new covenant kingdom of God. Paul wrote, “But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)

Let Your Ark Rise Above The Earth

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Then the flood came upon the earth for forty days, and the water increased and lifted up the ark, so that it rose above the earth” Genesis 7:17 Let us rise “above the earth” this day in our ark of salvation. Yes, let us rise so high above the earth that we see our God, above all things, Who has also “raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ“ (Ephesians 2:6). Now here is a seat for you and I that is far above the earth! The word of God, of salvation in Jesus Christ, which this world rejects, is the same word that we have received and, as a result, we have been lifted up in our ark of salvation so we may effectual

God Closed The Door Behind You

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall enter the ark” Genesis 6:18 “And the Lord closed it behind him.” Genesis 7:16 When Noah entered the ark with all his family and all of the living beings, God then closed the door behind them, meaning that God, Himself, sealed the deal on the covenant He made with Noah, and that the former world Noah had lived in was now forever behind him. Praise God, for when you and I received Jesus Christ our Savior, entering the ark of our salvation in Him, our Father God closed the door on the world behind us, sealing the deal on our belonging to Him, through the New Covenant blood of His Son. We are fore

Entering Your Covenant Ark

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall enter the ark” Genesis 6:18 Hallelujah! When you and I walk with God, as Noah did, seeing favor and grace coming to us from our Lord God’s eyes, as Noah did, then this enables us to behold God’s covenant made with us, through the blood of our resurrected Savior, even as Noah beheld God’s covenant made with him. So now, all that remains for us is to enter the ark of our covenant salvation, as Noah did. In the Old Testament, the ark of the covenant of the law was in the Holy of Holies, in the temple, and only one person, the high priest, could enter one day each year. In the New Covenant of grac

Walk With God And Let God Take You

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Noah Walked With God” Genesis 6:9. “Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him” Genesis 5:24 Enoch was Noah’s great, great grandfather. It is important for us to see that when we walk with God, we are not only obeying and blessing our Lord, walking in the light of His goodness, but we are passing on a legacy of walking with God, to those who come after us. Enoch walked with God and God took Him, to be forever with Himself. Noah, Enoch’s great, great grandson, also walked with God and God took him, out of the destruction of the flood and into the safety of the ark. When you and I walk with God we receive both of these awesome truths, and

Favor, Grace, & Safety With Our God

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time; Noah walked with God” Genesis 6:9 When we walk with God, He shows us things and takes us places, all so we might continuously be with Him and better know Him. Noah walked with God and, as a result, “Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord” (Genesis 6:8). When we walk with God, we are close to Him, in fellowship with Him, so we are able to see favor and grace in our Lord’s eyes towards us. God’s favor and grace are upon us and within us, as we walk with Jesus Christ, Who is “full of grace and truth” (John 1:14). God not only had favor in His eyes toward Noah, but God took Noah and saved Him from the f
