A Kingdom Of Priests.

| Spiry Tee

"And you will be my kingdom of priests, my holy nation.’ This is the message you must give to the people of Israel.”
Exodus 19:6 NLT

The Lord has always wanted to have a kingdom of priests. He gave the promise to the children of Israel that if they would obey Him, He would make them a kingdom of priests.

Did they obey? No, they failed many times. But we must always be cognizant of the fact that God's plan is not dependent on our efforts or works. Though they came short of the glory of God, the Lord never changed His plan. 

He made a Priest after the order of Melchidezek, who came according the power of an endless life. His name is Jesus. Through Christ as High Priest, God gained more sons as priests. In Christ we are "...royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession..." (1 Peter 2:9 NLT)

We are not like the Old Testament priests who were made to be priests by the law of a carnal commandment. We are made priests just the way Jesus was made our High priest, "according to the power of an endless life" (Hebrews 7:16).

It's amazing to see that resurrection life is what ordained the New Testament priesthood. Our priesthood is forever because we are born from death. The life of God perambulates in us. This is something to shout about.

I am a royal priest, made according to the power of an endless life. It is resurrection life that ordained me as a priest unto God, forever.
