Sermons about Melchizedek
The Old Testament man named Melchizedek is a very mysterious man, who seems to come out of nowhere, and then fades back into the horizon so to speak, and is never seen again. But this mystery man gives us a picture of our Great High Priest Jesus Christ, and illustrates just how Superior Jesus is to Aaron and all the other Levitical Priests in the Old Covenant.
This sermon will get you geeked out over the mysterious OT figure, Melchizedek. The author of Hebrews has delayed his commentary since 5:10, after recognizing his congregation was not intellectually mature enough to handle the deep teachings of Jesus' royal high priesthood. But after warning them (5:11-6:12) and setting the stage with a reflection on Abraham (6:13-20), he returns to Melchizedek in full force. The enigmatic OT priest is a model of royal priesthood. Jesus is the better royal priest. He sets a new paradigm for priestly service, which used to be tied to lineage and law (see Exodus 29). Priests from Aaron's line were replaced regularly. The perpetuated an imperfect system, and eventually died. Hence, Jesus rose up (literally) as an eternal high priest. Because Jesus is an eternal priest, no one can replace Him, and we can always trust him.
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

This Communion message focused on the royal priesthood of Melchizedek, the Ultimate Royal & Everlasting Priesthood of Jesus, and the call to every believer to be a royal priest in the Christ's Eternal Kingdom.
Jesus is our perfect high priest who is able to save completely those who come to God through him because he always lives to intercede for them.
