We have a great high priest!

Simple Gospel Summation

"So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee. As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec" Hebrews 5:5-6 KJV.

Christ glorified not himself to be high priest, but was appointed by God himself, He was "Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec" Hebrews 5:10.

After the order of Melchisedec, meaning, his priesthood is perpetual, he was not ordained by men, neither did he take this honour upon himself, but he was called of God; ".... for men in things pertaining to God, that [he may without a break offer] both gifts and sacrifices for sins... [and to] have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way..." Hebrews 5:1-2. Apostle Peter says, "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" 2 Peter 3:9. Instead of punishing you for failing to assimilate to common values, he allows people, those with differing values to coexist. Laws exist as formalized morals and are based on restitution rather than revenge.

He was called of God; and for men in things pertaining to God, and it’s worth noting that "we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" Hebrews 4:15-16.

Yes, he is moved by our infirmities!

The Lord is longsuffering, forbearing, patient and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and as our great High Priest, we know that he’s praying for us, and is interceding for us before our Father - not because we are good, but is patient with us not willing that any should perish. We know also that God listens to him, for in the days of his flesh, he heard him, and more also now because he has been made perfect, and is sat at the right hand of the glory of God to make intercession for us, "And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him" Hebrews 5:9.

God bless,

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server.You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server.But listen to this before you do;"Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her."" Luke 10:38-42.Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubled ab…

Your fellowship in the gospel

As we fellowship with each other as believers, remember that our fellowship is only in the gospel. We love the brotherhood with the affection of Jesus Christ only, nothing more.Apostle Paul says, "And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God," Philippians 1:9-11.So, as you fellowship with other believers, always remember that your job as a Christian is to ensure the progress of others and joy of faith, and to defend the gospel. The Apostle says, "Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so...that you may stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel." Philippians 1:27.Be like-minded; help each other, work together with one heart, be warm-h…

The Lord’s Supper - Do this in remembrance of Me

Jesus prepared for the passover with his disciples, and then "He said to them, "With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God." Luke 22:15-16He would no longer eat of it because He’s the Fulfilment of the Passover.The Passover lamb was prepared/ killed a day before The Passover Feast, a day Jews commemorate their deliverance from slavery in Egypt. On Passover, Jews also celebrate the birth of the Jewish nation after being freed by God from captivity.Jesus is the fulfilment of the Passover. He is the Lamb of God, sacrificed to set us free from bondage to sin (John 1:29; Psalm 22; Isaiah 53). The blood of Jesus covers and protects us, and his body was broken to free us from eternal death (1 Corinthians 5:7).In the Jewish tradition, a hymn of praise known as the Hallel is sung during the Passover Seder. In it is Psalm 118:22, speaking of the Messiah:…
