Sermons about Melchizedek
Who is Melchizedek? He is mentioned here in Genesis 14 as well as two other places of Scripture. As we aim to find out who Melchizedek was and what he did, we will gain greater insight into the person and work of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is our highest aim. We shall begin by first looking at this man that blessed Abram; finding out who he was, what he did, and how that impacted Abram. Then we shall look to see what the Scripture says about Jesus in relation to all of this and how that applies to us.
As we come to Genesis chapter 14, we find that Abram’s faith is once again put to the test. In order to rescue his nephew from captivity, Abram would have to overpower a much larger army with his servants, who were not trained soldiers. The second test will come at the end of the chapter, when Abram is tested to accept the riches and accolades of the world. This is perhaps the hardest test of all.
The Priesthood of Melchizedek shows that the plan of God was always to save mankind through Christ.
Jesus: High Priest forever in the Order of Melchizedek.
William Andrews addresses the Welcome Church in Lurgan, Craigavon and explores the meaning behind the Day of Pentecost,(Feast of Weeks) highlighting that the Levitical priesthood were only a caretaker management which assumed only the temporary (physical) authority of Melchizedek until the true heir Jesus Christ came and restored the priesthood back into the family of God by making us all priests under Him after the Order of Melchizedek
The historical account of Melchizedek meeting and blessing Abram recorded in Gen. 14. We discuss how this particular account can help us to understand studying the Bible better and how to relate applications to us appropriately.
