Psalm 110:4 The LORD has sworn and will not relent, "You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek."
Heb 5:5-6 So also Christ did not glorify Himself to become High Priest, but it was He who said to Him: "You are My Son, today I have begotten You." As He also says in another place: "You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek"
Key Points:- This prophecy is clearly speaking of One greater than king David.
- Melchizedek in Hebrew Melchi-Tzedek from Melech (king) Tsedek (righteous) My King is Righteous- Melchizedek united the offices of priest and king in Zion.
- King David was not a priest, but his royal Son (Messiah) puts away the sin of His people.- Godís sworn oath was not with the Aaronic priesthood but that Messiah would be a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek
- David died but this Melchizedek-like King-Priest lives forever.- Zech 6:13 reveals that Messiah will rule from His throne and sit as priest on His throne.
- David had no claim to the priestly tithe and was denied the authority to offer sacrifice.- The ancient heathen Canaanites admitted the union of the kingship with the priesthood.
