The Lesser Man Gives Blessing to the Greater Man






The Lesser Man Gives Blessing to the Greater Man

It just makes sense that someone lays a foundation to take you to the next level. John the Baptist Baptized Jesus Christ. The lesser man blessing the greater man. John the Baptist was the little voice before the bigger voice. The mind of men works the same way first a little voice and it grows to become the big voice.

No One Knew Where He Came From I first wrote on Melchizedak on 9/27/2010 Jesus Is like Melchizedek I had no ideal this topic would come back to me so soon. The little voice give way to the greater voice. If you know me I don’t say much. I’m not going to write a lot of words of my own. I will point out a few things and let your mind explore them and you to determine your confidence or faith in the truth of God’s words.

Melchizedek was a king and a priest. His name means king of goodness and he was the king of peace. No one knew his father or mother, no one knew where he came from, when he was born or died. Melchizedek was like the son of God. All I can say is Wow!

Hebrews 7:1-21
1 Melchizedek 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, 2 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.” 3 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.

Melchizedek was a great man. Abraham is the great father. Abraham gave Melchizedek a tenth of everthing that he won in the battle. The law concerning the Levi and the tenth.  I not going to try and explain to you read it below and know it for yourself.

4 You can see how great Melchizedek was. Abraham, the great father, gave him a tenth of everything that he won in battle. 5 Now the law says that those in the tribe of Levi who become priests must collect a tenth from the people—their own people—even though the priests and the people are from the family of Abraham. 6 Melchizedek was not from the tribe of Levi, but he collected a tenth from Abraham. And he blessed Abraham, the man who had God’s promises. 7 Now everyone knows that the more important person blesses the less important person. 8 Priests receive a tenth, even though they are only men who live and then die. But Melchizedek, who received a tenth from Abraham, continues living, as the Scripture says. 9 We might even say that Levi, who receives a tenth, also paid it when Abraham paid Melchizedek a tenth. 10 Levi was not yet born, but he was in the body of his ancestor when Melchizedek met Abraham.

More on the law. A different kind of priest and a new law. The law had to change.

11 The people were given the law concerning the system of priests from the tribe of Levi, but they could not be made perfect through that system. So there was a need for another priest to come, a priest like Melchizedek, not Aaron. 12 And when a different kind of priest comes, the law must be changed, too.13 We are saying these things about Christ, who belonged to a different tribe. No one from that tribe ever served as a priest at the altar. 14 It is clear that our Lord came from the tribe of Judah, and Moses said nothing about priests belonging to that tribe.

You are a made priest not by human rules and laws but by the power of your life Goodness an peace. The old rules set aside because they were weak.

Jesus Is like Melchizedek

15 And this becomes even more clear when we see that another priest comes who is like Melchizedek. 16 He was not made a priest by human rules and laws but through the power of his life, which continues forever. 17 It is said about him,
“You are a priest forever,
a priest like Melchizedek.” — Psalm 110:4
18 The old rule is now set aside, because it was weak and useless.19 The law of Moses could not make anything perfect. But now a better hope has been given to us, and with this hope we can come near to God. 20 It is important that God did this with an oath. Others became priests without an oath, 21 but Christ became a priest with God’s oath. God said:
“The Lord has made a promise
and will not change his mind.
‘You are a priest forever.'” — Psalm 110:4
