We have the idea of servant hood down quite well. We also understand that we are sons of God. We have heard about, but donít really understand, being new creatures, but we remain in gross darkness over what is our main purpose and highest calling - which is, that we are Kings and Priests unto God!
It is for this reason that many Christians go on feeling worthless, lack confidence and are void of passion and purpose in life. I believe that God would say to us that He has chosen each and every one of us to be a special instrument to show forth his glory. He has given all of us a special calling, special privileges, and special blessings. He has declared and will not repent, that we are Royal Kings, Prophets and Priests unto Him. He has empowered us to live like Princes, reign like Kings and rule over nations. Our purpose is to bring life-giving blessings to the nations.
WE SHOULD BE STRIKEN WITH AWE, WONDER AND GRATITUDE FOR THE FACT THAT LIKE AS GOD PASSED OVER DAVIDíS BROTHERS AND CHOSE DAVID TO BE KING, EVEN SO HE PASSED BY MANY OTHERS AND CHOSE US TO REIGN FOREVER!!!!
Our world is in a state of spiritual disaster. Death reigns everywhere. A social gospel is just putting patches on leperís sores. These times desperately need the ministry of Priests; Priests that minister, not a dead word, but a ďLiving Christ.Ē I believe God is saying to us, "Look unto Me and I will make you that nation of Priests, Ministers that are red-hot and razor-sharp, ministers that are flames of fire."
As Kings I give you authority to bind powers of darkness that bring sorrow and grief into the world. Your purpose is to resist, defy, route and scatter sin, sickness and all darkness that opposes Christís reign of Light.
As Prophets your responsibility is to hold up the standard of my Holiness; to teach your generation to see the invisible and to relish the eternal.
As Priests you have the exclusive privilege to enter into my presence, wait upon me, absorb my glory, my tranquility, then intercede and receive blessings for the poor and needy.
To walk in this authority and receive this inheritance first Ė
As Kings you must rule over the beasts of the field which are your animal nature and sinful passions.
As Prophets you must rule over the fouls of the air which is your thought life.
As Priests you must rule over your subconscious motives, dreams and fears.
This is a place, a position, a calling and a distinction higher than sonship; even as much as Abraham was eclipsed in glory by Melchisedec. Now through our union and intimacy with Jesus, God has elevated us to the office of Priests. Therefore let us come boldly into the presence of GOD , let us put on the garment of praise and fulfill our destiny and duty of declaring Godís wonderful praises.
I believe the excellence of this wisdom of God will result in restoring the Shekinah glory among his body, provoke Israel to jealousy and usher in The Kingdom of God.
