Concerning Him We Have Much To Say

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things that He suffered. And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation, being designated by God as a high priest according to the order of Melchizadek. Concerning him we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing” Hebrews 5:8-11 (Psalm 110:4) The author of Hebrews had “much to say” concerning Jesus Christ our glorious “high priest according to the order of Melchizadek.” Indeed, everything written up to this point in Hebrews was concerning this theme of Christ, our High Priest, of a new and better covenant.

Obeying The Source Of Our Eternal Salvation - Christ Our High Priest

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Christ did not glorify Himself so as to become a high priest, but He who said to Him, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You’; just as He says also in another passage, ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek.’ Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things that He suffered. And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation, being designated by God as a high priest according to the order of Melchizadek” Hebrews 5:5-6,8-10 (Psalm 110:4) Praise God! Jesus Christ, our risen High Priest is, Himself, “the source of eternal salvation” - “to all those who obey Him.” Jes

Learning Obedience From The Things He Suffered

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Christ did not glorify Himself so as to become a high priest, but He who said to Him, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You’; just as He says also in another passage, ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek.’ Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things that He suffered. And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation, being designated by God as a high priest according to the order of Melchizadek” Hebrews 5:5-6,8-10 (Psalm 110:4) O bless our Lord and High Priest forever, Jesus Christ! Psalm 110:4 is quoted two times within this passage of Scripture concerni

Let Us Honor Our High Priest

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “No one takes the honor to himself, but receives it when he is called by God, even as Aaron was. So also, Christ did not glorify Himself so as to become a high priest, but He who said to Him, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You’(Psalm 2:7); just as He says also in another passage, ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek’(Psalm 110:4)” Hebrews 5: 4-6 In yet another reference to Psalm 110 within the book of Hebrews, the writer this time was declaring that just as God called, through Moses, to Aaron to make him High Priest of the Old Covenant according to the order of Levi, so also did God call, prophetically with an “oath

Holding Fast To Our Confession Since We Have A Great High Priest

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession” Hebrews 4:14 “Since we have a great high priest... let us hold fast our confession.” Hallelujah, brothers and sisters, God has given us “a great high priest,” His only Son, Jesus. Let us hold fast to our confession of “Jesus the Son of God” Who “has passed through the heavens” for us with His perfect atoning New Covenant blood, as our “great high priest,” so He would enter “the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption” (Hebrews 9:12). All praise to our “great high priest” - “Jesus the Son of God!”

“An End To Every Dispute”

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “For men swear by one greater than themselves, and with them an oath given as confirmation is an end of every dispute. In the same way God, desiring even more to show to the heirs of the promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, interposed with an oath. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a fore-runner for us, having become a high ‘priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek’” Hebrews 6:16-17,19-20 (Psalm 110:4) In this beautiful passage of Scripture we once more see Jesus Christ revealed to us as the fulfilment of Psalm 110 which, the

Jesus, Our Guarantee Of A Better Hope Through His Better Covenant

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: "For, on the one hand, there is a setting aside of a former commandment because of its weakness and uselessness (for the law made nothing perfect), and on the other hand there is a bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God. And inasmuch as it was not without an oath (for they indeed became priests without an oath, but He with an oath through the One who said to Him, 'The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind, ‘You are a priest forever’'); so much the more also Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant" Hebrews 7:18-22 (Psalm 110:4) Jesus, our high “priest forever,” is, Himself, “The guarantee of a better covenant

A More Excellent Ministry

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “For the law appoints men as high priests who are weak, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints a Son, made perfect forever” Hebrews 7:28 God’s “Son, made perfect forever,” is our beloved Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus is both our risen “Lord” and our “priest forever/High Priest,” Fulfilling “the word of the oath” in Psalm 110 which says, “The Lord says to my Lord: ‘Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet’” (Verse 1) and “The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind, ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek’” (Verse 4). The author of Hebrews continued in his next verse (after

Psalm 110 is “The Word Of The Oath”

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “For the law appoints men as high priests who are weak, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints a Son, made perfect forever” Hebrews 7:28 The writer of Hebrews referred to David’s prophetic Psalm 110 as “the word of the oath” six times in his letter (Hebrews 6:16-17, 7:20-21,28). The Old Covenant law could only appoint high priests who were “weak.” However the “word of the oath, which came after the law” has appointed Jesus Christ, God’s Son, as both our “Lord” and “priest forever.” Through His New Covenant blood, Jesus has been raised (Hebrews 13:20) and “made perfect forever.” “The word of the oath” appearing in David’s Psalm 1

When He Offered Up Himself

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “For it was fitting for us to have such a high priest, holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted above the heavens; who does not need daily, like those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for his own sins and then for the sins of the people, because this He did once for all when He offered up Himself” Hebrews 7:26-27 Our High Priest, Jesus Christ, made the supreme sacrifice for our sins and for the sins of this world, “Once for all,” when “He offered up Himself .” This is our great high “priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek” (Psalm 110:4, Hebrews 7:17). Because our Lord Jesus, while He walked the earth, kep

Since We Have Confidence To Enter The Holy Place

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith” Hebrews 10:19-22 Praise God! For the past few days we have been seeing how Jesus Christ has entered the “holy place” of God with His Own sacrificial New Covenant blood in order to obtain eternal redemption “for us” (Hebrews 9:24, 10:11-14, 1:3). So now, because of what Jesus Christ, our resurrected “Lord” and “priest forever”(fulfilling Psalm 110), ha

Jesus Appeared In The Presence Of God “For Us”

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us” Hebrews 9:24 Praise God, as we continue to behold the fullness of Psalm 110's prophecies, we are graced to see more and more of Who Jesus has become to and for us, both our “Lord” (Psalm 110:1) and “priest forever” (Psalm 110:4), and what Jesus has done for us, “He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD” (Hebrews 10:13, Psalm 110:1). It is humbling, I think, in light of all we have been looking at for these past two and half weeks from Psalm 110, to se

Behold The Blood Of The New Covenant

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “But He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, waiting from that time onward UNTIL HIS ENEMIES BE MADE A FOOTSTOOL FOR HIS FEET.” For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified” Hebrews 10:12-14 Hallelujah! Our beloved Lord Jesus Christ has “offered one sacrifice for sins for all time;” that being His Own sinless New Covenant blood (Luke 22:20), shed at Calvary. Then, in His resurrection, which also took place through “the blood of the eternal covenant” (Hebrews 13:20), Jesus, our “High Priest,” entered the “perfect tabernacle” (Hebrews 9:11) and with “His Own blood, He ente

Once For All

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Every priest stands daily ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, waiting from that time onward UNTIL HIS ENEMIES BE MADE A FOOTSTOOL FOR HIS FEET” Hebrews 10:11-13 Our Lord Jesus Christ, our great High Priest, has made a once “for all time” sacrifice for our sins and has, in fulfilment of this prophecy of Psalm 110, “SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD.” Once more we see the author of Hebrews tying together our Savior accomplishing the work of our salvation with fulfilling this part of the Psalm 110 prop

Psalm 110's Prophecy & Our Purification Of Sins

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.” Hebrews 1:3 Praise God, the more we look at this great prophecy of Psalm 110, of a coming Messiah Who would be both King and High Priest, the more we realize the increasing implications and inspiring fullness of this prophecy! Jesus Christ is this Messiah. He is our King and our “priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek” (Psalm 110:4), right now and forever. Jesus Christ, right now, “is the radiance of His glory and the

Seeing The Radiance Of His Glory

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.” Hebrews 1:3 The first time the author of Hebrews mentioned Psalm 110 was right in the opening chapter of His letter, in the third verse. Because our Lord and High Priest Jesus Christ has fulfilled Psalm 110, He has now “sat down at the right hand” of God (“The Lord says to My Lord: ‘Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet” Psalm 110:1), which expresses Christ’s finished work of His New Covenant of salv

Expressing God’s Love To His Covenant People

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “But to which of the angels has He ever said, ‘Sit at My right hand, until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet?” Hebrews 1:13 (Psalm 110:1) Praise our amazing Lord God, there is only One Whom our Father in heaven invites to “Sit at My right hand,” and that is Jesus Christ our risen Savior, Lord, and High Priest. As we continue to look at Psalm 110 and it’s amazing prophetic fulfillment in Jesus Christ, Who is both our “Lord” (Psalm 110:1) and our “priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek” (Psalm 110:4, Hebrews 4:14-5:10, 6:17-10:25), we can appreciate more and more all that Jesus Christ has accomplished for us and Who He has bec

“This Jesus”

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “This Jesus God raised up again, to which we are all witnesses. Therefore having been exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He has poured forth this which you both see and hear. For it was not David who ascended into heaven, but he himself says: ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”’ Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ - this Jesus” Acts 2:32-36(Psalm 110:1) Hallelujah, our God reigns! Let us praise our Savior, Jesus Christ, Who has overcome death, and is now se

“What Do You Think About The Christ, Whose Son Is He?”

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: "Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question: “What do you think about the Christ, whose son is He?” They said to Him, “The son of David.” He said to them, “Then how does David in the Spirit call Him ‘Lord,’ saying, ‘The Lord said to My Lord, “Sit at My right hand, until I put Your enemies beneath Your feet”’? “If David then calls Him ‘Lord,’ how is He his son?” No one was able to answer Him a word, nor did anyone dare from that day on to ask Him another question" Matthew 22:41-46, (Psalm 110:1) It is absolutely powerful and significant to see Jesus directly quoting this prophetic passage from Psalm 110, acknowledging

The Power Of An Indestructible Life

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind, ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek.’” Psalm 110:4 I have been sharing much with you these past few days concerning this wonderful prophetic word about our Savior, Jesus Christ, from Psalm 110. Today I would like to give you the author of Hebrews explanation of this verse, concerning HOW Jesus has become our High Priest. “Now if perfection was through the levitical priesthood (for on the basis of it the people received the law), what further need was there for another priest to arise according to the order of Melchizadek, and not be designated according to the order of Aaro
