JULY 4 – KING OF SALEM!

“Then Melchizedek king of Salem …was the priest of God Most High” (Genesis 14:18).

The above verse mentions about Melchizedek. He was the King of Salem and also the priest of God Most High. The anointment of a king was also on him.

Not only that. When we see him blessing Abraham, we notice that he also had the anointment of a prophet upon him. God provides these three anointments to His children. If the children of God want to receive the governance, they need to have the anointment of a king. If they want to stay strong in the anointment received, the anointment of a priest and anointment of prophecy are needed for them.

We call our God as God of Abraham, God of Isaac and God of Jacob. Abraham was a prophet of God. God Himself told Abimelech that Abraham was a prophet. Isaac is the image of a priest. As a sign of Lord Jesus Christ, Isaac was placed on the altar as a sacrifice. Jacob remains as a sign for the king as he was named by God as ‘Israel’ which means a prince.

The New Testament can be divided into three parts. Firstly the Gospels, secondly the Acts of the Apostles and thirdly the Revelation. In the Gospels He is seen as a prophet, in the Acts of the Apostles He is seen as a priest and in the book of Revelations He is seen as a King of kings.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Yesterday He was a prophet, today He is a priest who advocates for us and He will be the King of kings also in the days to come.

In Revelations 1:8, we read that our God is ‘who is and who was and who is to come’. He was a prophet, He is a priest and He will come as the King of kings. Yes. He fulfils the ministry in three ways as a prophet, priest and King of kings.

In John 4:19, the Samaritan woman saw Jesus Christ as a prophet. She said, “Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet”. In Hebrews 9: 11, we can see Jesus Christ getting revealed as the High Priest. In I John 1:7, we see Him as one who cleanses us. In I Corinthians 15:25, we see Him as one who rules. Dear children of God, remember always that He anoints you as a King, a priest and a prophet.

To meditate: “…for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet” (Jeremiah 18:18).
