Royal Priesthood

Hebrews 7:15-16 (KJV)

15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,

16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.


There is no physical requirements for being a Royal Priest in the order of Melchisedec. When you join the family of God by receiving Jesus Christ, you become a priest, a royal heir to God’s great and wonderous power.

It is a Spiritual priesthood that has authority over all entities in the Spirit realm, hence its Royalty. The Royal Priesthood is built on the foundation of Jesus Christ. We represent Jesus and His all-powerful Love when we choose to follow Christ.

1 Peter 2:6-7 (NLT)

6 As the Scriptures say,

“I am placing a cornerstone in Jerusalem,
chosen for great honor,
and anyone who trusts in him
will never be disgraced.”

7 Yes, you who trust him recognize the honor God has given him. But for those who reject him,

“The stone that the builders rejected
has now become the cornerstone.”

Be confident in Christ and carry your banner for Jesus with courage.

Philippians 3:3-4 (NLT)

3 For we who worship by the Spirit of God are the ones who are truly circumcised. We rely on what Christ Jesus has done for us. We put no confidence in human effort, 4 though I could have confidence in my own effort if anyone could. Indeed, if others have reason for confidence in their own efforts, I have even more!
