There is no higher governmental authority in the created order than the eternal Sovereign seated upon His throne in the heavenly temple. He created all things for His pleasure and upholds them by the power of His word.
The uniqueness of the Kingdom of God can be seen in the central governmental role of the priestly ministry. Jesus isn’t just a King who prays, but a Priest who governs the universe through intercession forever!
In the Old Testament, God either anointed a king to govern or a priest to minister. He rarely allowed these two o ces to overlap. However, in the New Testament, Jesus our great High Priest perfected a new priesthood after the order of Melchizidek in which He administrates the government of Almighty God through the priestly ministry of worship and prayer. As we release faith filled words of agreement to God, He responds to us by releasing His governmental power in the earthly realm.
In this two-part series, you will discover your eternal occupation and gain confidence in ministering to God by understanding the unprecedented access and authority you have been given as a royal governmental priest.
