MY PRIESTHOOD

1Peter 2:9 But you are a special people, a holy nation, priests and kings, a people given up completely to God, so that you may make clear the virtues of him who took you out of the dark into the light of heaven.

If I sit, hardly aware of the priesthood conferred on me by Christ, and don’t fully understand it; I am unable to exercise my position properly. This ought not to be for the scripture is plain and makes sense and needs no other sense to explain it.

In most religions there is some form of priesthood where some persons have been elevated above the rest. The difference in Christianity is that all who have been blood washed are a priest unto GOD to forward the graces and virtues of HIM.

The one way to the kingdom of GOD is being challenged by self proclaimed liberal theologists which would be better served by being called theorists for they espouse theories based on presumption.

They say the task of the enlighten one is to separate a believer from the literal meanings of Jesus’ words and substitute humanist alternatives or in other words “another gospel” that is little more than a clone, something that looks similar but is not the real thing.

The words of Jesus are not subject to interpretation, for interpretation leads giving a different meaning to the obvious and to that which the Spirit of GOD can and will validate in each person’s life when activated by faith.

Many are trapped by the philosophies of the last two hundred years. The age of enlightenment is a prime example of this tower of Babel in wolf’s clothing. For example;

Kant asks if a religious synod or presbytery should be entitled to “commit itself by oath to a certain unalterable set of doctrines.” He answers that a contract like this prevents “All further enlightenment of mankind forever. It is impossible and immoral that the people of one generation could restrict the thoughts of the next generation.” He tries to use religion as his proof example that Christianity should be judged by each generation and remade to suit the reasoning of the present morality.

Kant errors by thinking Christianity is a church organization, when in fact it is a living spiritual organism that can’t be altered or changed by theorists. Even if the whole followed these errorists, Jesus’ words stand, unchanged, for they are the words of life, the beginning and the end. Any attempt to change or add to his words, only leaves the perpetrator in confused bondage.

Romans 12:1 beseech you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

To the born again ones He says you are an ordained priest to offer up unto GOD sacrifices of worship and praise which is your reasonable service. This is the (only) way walk ye in it.
