Melchizedek

WS-devo_PMSMelchizedek was the king of Salem and a priest for God Most High. He met Abraham when Abraham was coming back after defeating the kings. When they met, Melchizedek blessed Abraham, and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything he had brought back from the battle. First, Melchizedek’s name means “king of goodness,” and he is king of Salem, which means “king of peace.” No one knows who Melchizedek’s father or mother was, where he came from, when he was born, or when he died. Melchizedek is like the Son of God; he continues being a priest forever. (Hebrews 7:1-3 NCV) This Melchizedek is a mystery who reminds us of Jesus. Jesus commands our respect because we trust Him. We know His blessings and though we do not see God with our eyes, we trust Him with our heart. ©Word-Strong_2014
