The promises

1) The Messiah’s priesthood

The LORD has sworn and will not change his mind: “You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.”
Psalm 110:4

2) Seated on His heavenly throne

The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.”
Psalm 110:1

3) The Messiah’s final victory

And on the day of battle.. as the Lord extends your mighty scepter from Zion.. your enemies.. the nations.. the kings of the earth.. will fall.
Psalm 110:2-3, 5-6

 

The fulfillments

1) The Messiah’s priesthood

As High Priest He offered for all time one sacrifice for our sins –

• The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. (Hebrews 1:3)

• Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God. Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool, because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy. (Hebrews 10:11-14)

2) Seated on His heavenly throne

When this atoning work was done, He was raised to life and exalted to heaven where He sat down at the right hand of the Father, and poured out the promised Holy Spirit on those who believe –

• After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. (Mark 16:19-20)

• God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact. Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear. (Acts 2:32-33)

• The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. (Hebrews 1:3)

• Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God. Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool, because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy. (Hebrews 10:11-14)

• Now surrounded by this great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2)

3) The Messiah’s final victory

And since that time He patiently waits for the fulfillment of the Father’s promise, for His enemies to be made His footstool –

• Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God. Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool, because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy. (Hebrews 10:11-14)

Thy Kingdom come, Lord Jesus. Thy will be done.
