Priests made after the Order of Melchizedek are made after the power of an endless life (Heb 7:16). John 17:2 tells us that “This is eternal life, that they may know Thee.” The word ‘know’ here is ‘ginosko’ in the Greek. This word comes from the translation of a Jewish idiom for sexual intercourse between a man and a woman. The Hebrew word “yadah” points to this most intimate relationship. It’s the word used when “Adam experienced Eve” or “Adam knew Eve.” When we intimately know God, we experience eternal life because that which is born out of this type of relationship will bare His life.
This higher degree of intimacy IS the better covenant and better promises that Christ unlocked on the cross. Like the Great High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek, we sit with Him on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven (Eph 2:6; Heb 8:1). We are ministers of the sanctuary of the New Jerusalem that’s coming from heaven to earth. The new heavens and the new earth within the Order of Melchizedek are established by the Lord of Love Himself, not by man (Heb 8:2). His “new” covenant with physical and spiritual Is-real had actually already been prophesied in Jeremiah 31. It foretold the change in the law that came with the change in the priesthood. (Heb 7:12):
“But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days says the LORD: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God and they shall be My people” (Jer 31:33; Heb 8:10).
The Order of Melchizedek will perfectly know, as I AM perfectly known (1 Cor 13:12).
