The Coming Priest-King

August 18

Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 109 – 111

Verse of the Day: Psalm 110:1 – “Jehovah saith unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, Until I make thine enemies thy footstool.”

Psalm 110 is on of the Royal Psalms – and it is most directly a Messianic Psalm. This psalm speaks of the coming Priest-King-Judge or Messiah. This Psalm is a conversation between God the Father and God the Son – the Father is granting to the Son both royal and priestly honors. 

We find the Son in this Psalm seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven (verse 1), and “Jehovah hath sworn, and will not repent: Thou art a priest for ever After the order of Melchizedek.” (verse 4). 

The Savior (Prophet, Priest, and King) prophesized in the Old Testament is disclosed in the New Testament as Jesus Christ, the only Son of God.

Prayer: Lord, I am so glad today that our Messiah, our Savior, the Christ has come. Our debt is paid, and our future secure. Amen.
