17 For He received from God the Father honour and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” 2Peter 1:17

While on the one hand, this honour and glory belongs to us as heirs of John chapter 17, where Jesus said He gave this to us, [that His Father had given Him on the occasion of being transfigured,] at the same time, we have to follow in His footsteps, according to 1Peter 2:21.  This doesn't mean, always, going through what He went through. This means that in a treacherous, cloudy, dishonourable world we have to see His footsteps and follow them, as we see them in the Word, to receive the experience and benefit of this honour and glory.

As we walk through the sand in His direction, we eventually start finding fresher and fresher tracks in the sand. Eventually, the footsteps aren't Blood soaked.  Eventually, as we follow in His footsteps, according to 1Peter 2:21, we encounter Him as our Melchizedek, as Abraham did when he was chasing after the footsteps of the Lord. (Hebrews 6:11-17, 20)

There in all of His glory and honour, with what Zechariah 6:11 calls a green crown, or a crown of green gold, we encounter the King of Jerusalem, the Priest of the Most High God Who meets us with the Bread and Wine.  As we give God thanks and place before Christ Jesus our tithe, the Man now known as Melchizedek, in heaven, says to us:

"You are My Son. Today I have begotten you. Let all of the angels worship him. Your throne, O God, is to the age of the age. A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness. Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of joy above the animals."

As we reply to Him, "You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth and the heavens are the work of Your hands," during our worship time over our tithes, He graciously responds:

"Like a cloak you will fold them up, and they will be changed, but you are the same and your years will not fail. Sit at My right hand, till I make your enemies your footstool."

Romans 5:1-2 says: Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ through Whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

For the idols speak delusion; the diviners envision lies, and tell false dreams; they comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; they are in trouble because there is no shepherd. Zechariah 10:2

 

Unless otherwise noted, Scripture quotations are from a solid Center Column Reference Study New King James Version Bible. Where Center Column Reference alternate renderings are preferred, they're not always noted on the site at the time of their usage in a given context, if there's a discrepancy between our quotation and a NKJV that our site's visitors use that's missing the Center Column Reference notes that provide more literal renderings, alternative Hebrew and Greek manuscript variations, etc. Sometimes an "Understood Subject" from the given chapter of the Bible or the particular book of the Bible (perhaps previous chapter) is given attention to while teaching. Reading (and rereading) each book of the Bible [in it's entirety] that's being quoted from in the midst of each subject is [always] greatly encouraged for added clarity! While we're [deeply] supportive of what's understood to be orthodox Christian doctrine on all matters, we're always looking for what God's ADDITIONALLY saying to us in each subject being taught.
