JESUS IS MY HIGH PRIEST
Whither the forerunner is for us entered, [even] Jesus, made an high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek (Hebrews 6:20)
The Lord Jesus Christ is our High Priest in the order of Melchizedek. Now let us look at the part tithing played in the Priesthood of Melchizedek and in the High Priesthood of Jesus.
Now consider how great this man [was], unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils. And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham: But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises. And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better. And here men that die receive tithes; but there he [receiveth them], of whom it is witnessed that he liveth. Hebrews 7:4-8.
Jesus lives forever as a High Priest after the order of Melchizedek. And in His Priesthood He receives the tithes of His people. We can see that tithing has a continuous history from Abraham onwards. According to the Scripture, when we set aside our first tenth and offer our tithe to Jesus, we are actually acknowledging that Jesus is our High Priest and it is one of the ways that we are able to honor Him and acknowledge Him as our High Priest.
