Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: The Priest of the Most High God (El Elyon)
    For this Melchizedek, king of Salem,
    priest of the Most High God,
    who met Abraham returning from the slaughter
    of the kings and blessed him.
    Hebrews 7:1
    Melchizedek was a priest of the Most High God; and because he was a type of Jesus, Melchizedek’s ministry was a foreshadow of Jesus’ ministry (Hebrews 5:1-11). The title “Most High God” is El Elyon, which means “the God who rules Heaven and Earth.” When people don’t know what to call the Father or how to approach Him, at least they can come to Him as the Creator and Ruler of Heaven and Earth. Since no human can create the universe, all should recognize that there is only one Creator—God. Melchizedek recognized the legitimate God who ruled the Earth, and he prayed to Him. Melchizedek’s prayer was a prototype of Jesus’ ministry; He intercedes to El Elyon because Jesus is the Priest of the Most High God. Pray to the Father through Jesus today.
    Lord Jesus, I know You stand in Heaven before the Creator God. Remember me in Your intercession. I’m only one small person out of 7 billion people on this planet; please remember me.
    Jesus is the Priest for all; He is your Priest. He will not forget you. Just as Melchizedek interceded for Abraham, so Jesus will intercede for you. Just as Melchizedek had bread and wine to feed Abraham when he was exhausted and hungry, so Jesus will feed you on heavenly things. Just as Melchizedek and Abraham fellowshipped together, so you can fellowship with Jesus today.
    Lord Jesus, I look to You to intercede for me this day. Feed me spiritually, and let me fellowship with You today. Amen.

    Jesus is your Intercessor before the God of Heaven and Earth.
