For us, the Church at huge, to solve such contrasts and settle the clash of religiosity and spirituality, we needs to reconsider and embody the high-priestly ministry present in Christ Jesus, often called the Order of Melchizedek. once we ponder being kings and monks because the scripture states, again and again we see the Aaronic high-priest going into the Holies of Holies sacrificing a lamb for the sins of the folks. yet within the New testomony, quoting King David from Psalms, we learn that Jesus is a excessive priest eternally, after the order of Melchizedek. So why can we insert Christ into the perform of the Aaronic or Levitical priesthood? who's Melchizedek? How is that this Melchizedekian order diversified from the Aaronic order? absolutely Christ (the Messiah) isn't a high-priest that has a dagger in His hand slaying a lamb…
The scripture provides that there’s a lot to claim approximately this Melchizedek, yet it’s tricky to provide an explanation for. Why? may well it's that during Melchizedek, the Mosaic legislations, its commandments and its temple aren’t acceptable within the means now we have frequently utilized them? if this is the case, what does holy dwelling seem like?
Within the pages of “Melchizedek, Our Gracious King-Priesthood in Christ”, we are going to become aware of the enigmas relating to this king-priesthood, that is based within the very origins of construction and the backyard of Eden. therefore, if Adam participating of the Tree of the information of excellent and Evil introduced the autumn and dying to humanity, why will we Christians think that the preaching of excellent and evil will convey lifestyles?
This study-book can swap how we understand every thing in either the actual and religious international as we all know it, and open up the realty of the priesthood we've got in Christ simply because we, too, are of the order of Melchizedek!
