A Priest Forever

WS-devo_PMSWhen a different kind of priesthood is established, the regulations for those priests are different. Everyone knows that our Lord came from the tribe of Judah. Moses never said anything about priests coming from that tribe. The regulations were different. This became clear when a different priest who is like Melchizedek appeared. That person is a priest, not because he met human requirements, but because he has power that comes from a life that cannot be destroyed. The Scriptures say the following about him: “You are a priest forever, in the way Melchizedek was a priest.” (Hebrews 7:12, 14-17 GW) The priest's role was to be a bridge and mediator between God and His people. Jesus became a mediator as a savior for all people. He continues to be a mediator and the way to God for all people. ©Word-Strong_2014
