It was fitting that we should have such a High Priest: holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners, higher than the heavens. He has no need, as did the high priests, to offer sacrifice day after day, first for his own sins and then for those of the people; He did that once for all when He offered Himself. Hebrews 7:26-27

The One and Only High Priest endlessly providing the Sacrifice for sin.

It was fitting that we should have such a High Priest: holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners, higher than the heavens. He has no need, as did the high priests, to offer sacrifice day after day, first for his own sins and then for those of the people; He did that once for all when He offered Himself. Hebrews 7:26-27

Hebrews 7:1-28, Psalm 110 & Mark 3:1-6

Melchizedek was the king of Salem (Jerusalem) who blessed Abraham in Genesis 14:18–20); like other kings of the time he performed priestly functions. The writer of Hebrews describes today in Chapter 7 what he sees in Melchizedek as a type of Christ. We must realize God instituted His Redemption for humanity from the beginning of time instituting priests as we grew to offer sin sacrifices for the law could only appoint high priests with human limitations while the fulfillment of God’s oath regarding the priesthood of Melchizedek shared in Psalm 110:4 making the Son of God the perfect priest forever. Jesus fulfilled all prophesies giving humanity the One and Only High Priest endlessly providing the Sacrifice for sin by dying on a Cross sinless and holy.

Jesus in today’s world seems a far off memory forgotten in circles of discontent wanting only the desires of the heart stemming from the excess of flesh, flirtations and fame. We want more skin, more sociality and more recognition for accomplishments of living a life of self. The Perfection we see in poverty we forget in wealth by the darkness created around our hearts of filth. Walk down any street in America and you’ll see more skin from men and women than 50 years ago.

If you’re not on FaceBook, then you’ve chosen peace over pettiness living in desires of God? The social drive of information today seems too much too soon too late gathering life-long friends to steal away your hearts from the charity your community needs. I see people looking at a phone driving, walking and sitting in public as if the text they are getting or the FaceBook post they are reading is the most important thing in the world.

Priorities have shifted pilfering our faith, hope and love and turned us into disbelief, despair and derelicts living for the gratification of flesh without enlightening the soul. Thankfully, we have the High Priest Who took away our sins by the life, death and resurrection proving He is God’s Only Son. We learn by example knowing He was “holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners, higher than the heavens” allowing us a True King to worship in Truth. Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to always praise the High Priest of Christ. Praying for SC & STL Emmaus. Praying for Kairos Prison Ministry as we begin our meetings to visit the imprisoned.  Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. We pray for Greg Bishop’s healing. In Jesus Name we Eternally pray. Amen.

Yours in Christ,

Thomas Cruz†Wiggins

†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Romans 8:28

 

The earth and humanity had begun to sigh– Hebrews 7:1-28

 

Melchizedek was the king of Salem now Jerusalem

Hailed as a priest by the God Most High

Abraham got his blessing returning from the defeat of the kings

Getting one-tenth of everything from Abraham was his reply

 

His first name was means righteous king

King of Peace was his cry

No mother or father or end of life

Resembling the Son of God no deny

 

Another priest had to raised

The earth and humanity had begun to sigh

No law expressed physical descent

You are a priest forever Order of Melchizedek testified

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
