A Kingdom of Priests Part 2
November 10, 2009
What is God's perspective of the priesthood? In the Old Testament we know that righteous Abel sacrificed animals before God. However there is no indication that God had ordained priests yet, so we know that every man had to be his own priest, and that function fell upon the head of the household as was the case of Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Job. God told Moses "...you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation." (Ex. 19). In the New Testament, Peter records that we are to be a chosen generation, a royal priesthood a holy nation, meaning every believer is to have this function as part of his mission for the kingdom of God, no exceptions!
