ORDER OF GOD’S KINGDOM: PROPHETS AND PRIESTS

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Hebrews 8:1

Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;

KJV

What priests do is that they mediate as intermediaries between the Spirit realms and the physical. The fallen man cannot do without Priests because we generally cannot access the realm of the spirit without the help of those who have been ordained to access these realms.

The office of the priests and the prophets are functionally similar (but different) just like the work of the law makers (legislators) and the law interpreters (lawyers) are functionally similar but different. The lawyers are like the priests who use the laws to mediate and plead the case of people, or they use it as weapon to bring justice upon the guilty. In the Case of the prophets, they discover the spiritual order and laws that have already been written; these laws are given by God. You will see that Moses was the prophet bringing the laws to the People of Israel but Aaron was the priest that made atonements and sacrifices for the people. You will notice that a lot of reference was made to the law and the prophets as the order that God used to relate with His people in the Old Testament (see luke16:16).

Our relationship with God is Spiritual; our text shows us that Jesus is not a priest for us on the earth(physical realm) but in the heavens. This is the reason why our walk with God in this New Testament is not to be in the flesh but in Spirit.

God has made us Kings and priests (see Rev 1:6). We make atonements (standing in the gap and preserving our generations as salt on the earth) - this is how we are priests, and we are to provide leadership and be examples in the world as kings (shinning our light in the world) - we are salt and light, priests and kings. Go into today with the unshakable revelation of these truths.

Prayer; Dear heavenly father, I thank you for making us priests and kings unto our generations. I pray you keep us in your will all the way, in Jesus name. Amen
