THE ORDER OF THE NEW PRIESTHOOD AND THE COMING KINGDOM OF CHRIST. HEBREWS 5. PART 1

THE ORDER OF THE NEW PRIESTHOOD AND THE COMING KINGDOM OF CHRIST. HEBREWS 5. PART 1

THE IMMINENCE OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD REQUIRES A RESPONSE FROM EVERY AREA OF OUR LIFE, OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FATHER, AND ALL OF CREATION IN THIS SEASON. WE WILL NOT UNDERSTAND OR PARTICIPATE IN WHAT THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD WANTS FROM US IF THE PHILOSOPHY OF PRIESTHOOD WE SUBSCRIBE TO IS STILL BASED ON THE OLD, MOSAIC PRIESTHOOD.

THE SCRIPTURE TELLS US THAT THE PRIESTHOOD HAS CHANGED, AND THIS CHANGE AFFECTS HOW WE APPROACH AND INTERACT WITH THE LORD. THE MORE WE UNDERSTAND THE PRIESTHOOD AND HOW IT HAS CHANGED, THE MORE WE CAN FUNCTION IN OUR LIVES AND ADVANCE INTO WHAT THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS EMPHASIZING FOR THIS THIRD-DAY.

THIS IS A NEW DAY, AND WITH IT COMES ALL THE SPIRITUAL CHALLENGES AND GROWTH THAT HEAVEN DEMANDS FROM US TO BECOME MORE MATURE AND FUNCTIONAL PEOPLE. THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK IS A PRIESTHOOD HIGHER THAN THE ONE WE ARE USING NOW, AND THIS IS THE SAME PRIESTHOOD THAT OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF FUNCTIONED IN. THE MELCHIZEDEK IS AN ASCENDED PRIESTHOOD, WHICH MEANS IT IS A PRIESTHOOD BROUGHT UP TO A HIGHER LEVEL, AND IT IS PATTERNED AFTER THE ORDER OF THE ASCENDED LIFE IN CHRIST.

HEBREWS CHAPTER 5
1 EVERY HIGH PRIEST IS A MAN CHOSEN TO REPRESENT OTHER PEOPLE IN THEIR DEALINGS WITH GOD. HE PRESENTS THEIR GIFTS TO GOD AND OFFERS SACRIFICES FOR THEIR SINS. 2 AND HE IS ABLE TO DEAL GENTLY WITH IGNORANT AND WAYWARD PEOPLE BECAUSE HE HIMSELF IS SUBJECT TO THE SAME WEAKNESSES. 3THAT IS WHY HE MUST OFFER SACRIFICES FOR HIS OWN SINS AS WELL AS THEIRS.

4 AND NO ONE CAN BECOME A HIGH PRIEST SIMPLY BECAUSE HE WANTS SUCH AN HONOR. HE MUST BE CALLED BY GOD FOR THIS WORK, JUST AS AARON WAS. 5 THAT IS WHY CHRIST DID NOT HONOR HIMSELF BY ASSUMING HE COULD BECOME HIGH PRIEST. NO, HE WAS CHOSEN BY GOD, WHO SAID TO HIM, “YOU ARE MY SON. TODAY I HAVE BECOME YOUR FATHER.A” 6 AND IN ANOTHER PASSAGE GOD SAID TO HIM, “YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER IN THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK.”
