Royal Kings and Priests!
“Listen beloved… every violent thug is despised by the Lord, but every tender lover finds friendship with God and will hear His intimate secrets. There’s a private place reserved for the lovers of God, where they sit near him and receive the revelation-secrets of His promises (covenants). We are God’s chosen treasure “guarded wealth,” indicating the placement of the King’s jewels, treasures, etc., in a safe, protected place because of our extraordinary value. God says that we as believers are a priest and king, His unique and special treasure of great importance—a treasure above all other treasures. —priests who are kings, a spiritual “nation” set apart as God’s devoted ones… a group of kings, a priesthood or a king’s household, a priesthood, a priesthood of kings or a kingdom of priests. He called us out of darkness to experience His marvelous light, and now He claims us as His very own. He did this so that we would broadcast His glorious wonders throughout the world. He sacrificed Himself for us that He might purchase our freedom from every lawless deed and to purify for Himself a people who are His very own, passionate to do what is beautiful in His eyes. HE has chosen us to serve our Him and formed us into a kingdom of priests who reign on the earth.
But someone living on an entirely human level the natural man who is without Holy Spirit, rejects- does not have access to the revelations of God’s Spirit, for they make no sense to him. They can’t understand the revelations of the Spirit because they are only discovered by the illumination of the Spirit. So… (we need to) contend that our hearts will be wrapped in the comfort of heaven and woven together into love’s fabric. This will give us access – approach, to all the riches of God as we experience the revelation of God’s great mystery—Christ.”
