REVIEW:

THE OFFICE OF A PRIEST - RLJ-579 
Sept 7,1997

It was Jesus Himself who gave two titles (positions) to each believer in Christ, KINGS and PRIESTS. 
Revelation 1:1-6
The word "priest" in Hebrew is "kohen", which means 'prince", "minister." God has created two priesthoods.
1. The priesthood of Melchisedec – Genesis 14:18-20; Hebrews 7:1-3 2.
2. The Levitical priesthood – Exodus 28:1-3; 40:12-15

THE LEVITICAL PRIESTHOOD BEGAN AFTER THE EXODUS IN EGYPT AND CEASED TO EXIST WHEN JESUS DIED ON CALVARY! Hebrews 7:4-12

JESUS IS AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHISEDEC! Hebrews 7:13-28

Jesus is our high priest REPRESENTING THE SECOND COVENANT! Hebrews 8:1-7

The first covenant is null and void since the death of Jesus on the cross, and will never again reinstated – Hebrews 8:8-13

Thus all efforts by Jewish people to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem and institute a new round of sacrifices, are against the will of God and will be rejected by God. This kind of temple will be the temple of the Antichrist - Matthew 24:15; Daniel 11:37 - 39; 2 Thessalonians. 2:1-5

The Bible is clear, JESUS WAS THE PERFECT LAMB OF GOD (John 1:29) WHO HAS ONCE AND FOR ALL TAKEN AWAY MAN'S SIN AND BECAME THE FINAL PERFECT SACRIFICE! THERE ARE NOW NO MORE BLOOD SACRIFICES! Hebr. 9:1-26

EVERY BELIEVER IN CHRIST IS A PRIEST FOR GOD ON THIS EARTH: 1 Peter 2:5-10

There is no difference if the believer is a man or a woman, or what nationality the believer is, ALL BELIEVERS IN CHRIST ARE ONE IN JESUS CHRIST! Gal.3:22-29

DUTIES OF A PRIEST UNDER THE SECOND COVENANT
1. Before Jesus died on Calvary, the priests were to offer daily sacrifices. Now the sacrifices have been with intercessory prayer - Eph. 6: 10-18

2. To be a teacher of God'3 Word - Deut.6:1-9; 17:8-13

3. To worship God in Spirit and in Truth and together with other believers in Christ and worship God with them - Isaiah 6:1-7; John 4:23-24; Rev.7:9-17; 19:1-6

4. To feed and lead believers in Christ, to help them to mature and become strong priests John.21:15-17 God has warned His priests, if they neglect this duty. Ezek. 34:1-11

5. To be zealous for the Lord and destroy sin, by converting people to Christ and teach them the ways of the Lord - Numbers 25:10-13. To keep heresy out of the church of Jesus Christ
1 Tim.6:3-5; 2 Tim.4:1-5

ARE YOU SAVED? ARE YOU UPHOLDING YOUR OFFICE AS A PRIEST? If not, ask God for forgiveness today and seek Him in forgiveness at the altars!


FAITH, PRAISE AND WORSHIP - RLJ-616  

June 14,1998

As born again believers in Christ - John 1: 12-13; should our first obligation be to  please God or to please people? Hebrews 11:6

From the very beginning of the First Covenant, God stated that his people were to work six days a week, but the 7th day of the week was a day of rest and worship. Exodus 20:8-11

The third commandment was so important to God, that he declared that any one of his children who broke it would be put to death. Exodus 31:12-18

The prophet Jeremiah was told by God, that if the people would hallow the Sabbath, the blessings would flow from God. Jeramiah 17:19-27

When Israel did not observe the Sabbath day, God caused their minds to be polluted to murder their own children. Ezek.20:12-31

Worship from his created beings is what God requires. All through the Bible it is pointed out that this is the norm in heaven and should be the some on the earth. Rev. 7:11-17

Satan craves worship so much that he offered Jesus everything in return for worship. Matthew 4:8-11

Worship and praise can only come from believers in Christ. John 4:6-24, Rom. 8:5-11 All unbelievers are spiritually dead, I Cor.2: 14; and unable to worship and praise the Lord. Eph.2:1-6; 2 Cor.4:1-4

During the time of the Book of Acts, unbelievers were not present when the believers had praise and worship services. Acts 2:1-4; 4:23-32

Instead, the believers in Christ moved out into the communities where they preached and evangelized the unsaved.  Acts 2:5-40

Once a person had been born again, he was brought into the fellowship. Acts 2:41-47

Our churches of today have mixed up the concept of worship and evangelism.
Luke 14:15-24; Luke 9:1-2; 10:1-2, Matt. 28:18-20

Revival and awakening will only come when God's people, not the unbelievers, seek the Lord. Joel 2:11-19
