King And Priest
‘And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood, Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, And have made us kings and priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth.’
– Revelations 5:9- 10
–What a glorious inheritance we have in Christ
A powerful message… redeemed by the blood, and made kings and priests to God, to reign on earth.
Reign on earth? Not until heaven, but right here on earth!
This is an eternal one for you and I, who by the mercy of Our Savior, are part of this generation.
The significance is in the Spiritual offices that they represent. In Christ, we have the union of King, and priest.
In Christ the King we see and exercise the Authority of Heaven. We are given governmental power to administer resources of God.
In Christ the Priest, we experience the inter-mediation of Mercy and Grace. We encounter the Power of His Sovereign Might over all Creation. We have access to the presence and heart of God.
And in Christ our Savior we experience en-grafting into the Kingly, Priestly and Prophetic unction with Divine Access to all that Jesus died for.
What a humbling Glory.
Think about this all day. This is your Heritage. This is your calling. You are a king, You are a priest, You reign on earth.
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, be lifted high in my life. Let your anointing differentiate me in every area of life, service and ministry. I receive grace to work in my blood-bought full authority as a king, priest and prophet today and always.
In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
