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 enter

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 fulfillment 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 pro

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 e

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 beco

“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 th

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

Jesus Christ, Our High Priest Of “The Good Things To Come”

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “When Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things to come, He entered through the greater tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation; and not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. For this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant” Hebrews 9:11,12,15 I love how Scripture tells us that when Christ appeared as our High Priest, carrying His Own New Covenant blood into God’s presence on our behalf, the phrase “good things to come” is used. The New Covenant of our Savior, through which we are saved and now live abund

Our High Priest & His Perfect New Covenant Blood

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “When Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things to come, He entered through the greater tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation; and not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. For this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant” Hebrews 9:11,12,15 Praise be to Jesus Christ, for His perfect and sinless New Covenant blood, which is so because of our Savior’s perfect obedience to His Father. Our Savior never sinned; He never failed the Old Covenant law. He fulfilled the law by obeying His Father perfectly, all t

New Priesthood = New Covenant

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “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 7:21-22 Because we now have a “priest forever,” Jesus Christ, we are therefore highly favored and blessed to live in our High Priest’s “better covenant” forever. “The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind” regarding this eternal priesthood and New Covenant in which we now live. Earlier in this chapter of Hebrews the author wrote, “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

The New Covenant Is All The “Better For Us”

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “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 7:21-22 Why is the New Covenant “better” than the Old Covenant? Here’s why. Because of our “better covenant” (7:22, 8:6), we have been blessed with “a better hope” (7:19), based upon “better promises” (8:6), because of “a better sacrifice” (11:4, 9:23), so we have been given “a better possession and a lasting one” (10:34), “a better country” (11:16), and “a better resurrection” (11:35), all of which is “better for us” (11:40). Read, study, and absorb the truth of our New Covenant given to us

The Divine Prophetic Thread - From Melchizadek Through David To Jesus Christ

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “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 7:21-22, Psalm 110:4 Melchizadek is mentioned only two times in entire the Old Testament, in Genesis 14 and Psalm 110. Whereas Melchizadek is expounded upon, in depth, in the New Testament book of Hebrews (Hebrews 4:14-5:11 /6:19-10:25). Witness this beautiful and divine prophetic thread, which traces from the very first book of the Bible, Genesis, through David’s Psalm 110, and then into the revelation and realization of Jesus Christ, our “priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek

Jesus Christ Is Our High Priest Of The New Covenant

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “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 7:21-22, Psalm 110:4 The writer of Hebrews recognized Psalm 110 as being prophetic of Jesus Christ. He quoted this passage from Psalm 110, that we have been looking at for the past two days, and then added, “so much the more Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant.” Earlier on, as the writer of Hebrews described Abraham meeting Melchizadek and being blessed by him (Hebrews 7:4-11 & see Genesis 14), proving the superiority of, and the predating of, the New Covenant and the Melchiza

The Lesser Is Blessed By The Greater

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 God spoke this word through David, of a higher, permanent, priesthood to come, while the Levitical priesthood of the Old Covenant was still in effect. God was speaking through David of a future time in which Messiah would come and be “a priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek.” The priesthood of Melchizadek, the writer of Hebrews explained, is higher than the Levitical priesthood, for many reasons. First, “Through Abraham even Levi, who received tithes, paid tithes, for he was still in the loins of his father when

Jesus Christ, Right Now, Is Our “Priest Forever”

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 Hallelujah, Jesus Christ, right now, is our “priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek,” which David prophesied in this Psalm. No less than Jesus, Himself, said that this Psalm was specifically and prophetically written about Him (Matthew 22: 42-45). The writer of Hebrews repeatedly quoted this Psalm in reference to Jesus, our High Priest (Hebrews 5:5-10, 7:11-22, 1:13). So, what do you think the best and most appropriate way would be for you and I, and for God’s true church, to recognize and honor our Lord God, Jes

I Set In Array For Thee First, And Then I Look Out

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Unto Thee I pray habitually. Jehovah, at morning Thou hearest my voice. At morning I set in array for Thee, and I look out” Psalm 5:2b-3 (Young’s Literal Translation) Oh may we all learn this most powerful and joyful practice: that before we “look out” on anything, in this world or in our lives, let us begin each day, “at morning,” by first setting ourselves “in array for Thee,” and only after this to “look out.” Let us be wrapped in our true identity as with a holy robe and mantle, “in array for Thee,” and let us meet with our indwelling God, to praise Him and be with Him in His presence. Then, in this understanding and spiritual identity, we may b
