Verses:

 

Heb. 7:25 “He is able to save to the uttermost those who come forward to God through Him, since He lives always to intercede for them.”

 

Excerpts:

 

As far as Abraham was concerned, it was a shame for him to see that his brother had been captured. It is the same in the church today. It is a shame for us to see that any brother or sister has been captured. You should not tolerate it but should say, “I cannot bear with this. I must rise up and do something about it!” This is what Abraham did. In fighting for his brother, Abraham risked his life. It was not a small thing for him to risk his life in order to rescue his captured brother. But he did it. The fight went smoothly, and Abraham pursued the enemy from the south all the way to Dan in the north. His victory must have been the result of the intercession behind the scene.

 

I believe that Abraham’s brief and bold decision to fight for the rescue of Lot was stirred up by the intercession of Melchizedek. As a priest, Melchizedek must have been taking care of God’s people. In answer to his intercession, one escaped from Sodom, told Abraham the news, and Abraham made the bold decision to fight for the rescue of Lot

 

While we walk on this earth, many things happen to us. Apparently, these things just happen. Actually, behind the earthly scene, an intercession is going on. Our Melchizedek, our High Priest Christ, is still interceding for us in heaven. His intercession overshadows us and cares for us. ( Life-study of Genesis, msg. 43)
