Today... 'The King of Salem'


King of Salem and Priest of God Most High
just like Abraham I won't pass You by.
You're my Priest of God and my Sacrifice
without beginning of days or end of life.

King of Peace You are reaching out to me
Priest forever throughout eternity.
You gave Your life to make me Your own
and intercedes before heavens great throne

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hebrews 7: 1-3
This Melchizedek was king of Salem and priest of God Most High. He met Abraham returning from the defeat of the kings and blessed him, and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything. First, the name Melchizedek means "king of righteousness"; then also, "king of Salem" means "king of peace." Without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.

All quotations ©NIV

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting a glorious
aspect of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
"The King of Salem"

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
