Why are we operating from the old priesthood, when the new priesthood is better? Why are we operating from an old system, when the new system is better? Why are we operating from an old covenant, when the new covevant is better? Why are we standing, when we should be sitting? Why are we worrying, when we should be resting? Why are we sin conscious, when we should be Christ conscious? Why? Why? Why?
Let me give you something from Matthew Henry’s Commentary, “There is a change in God’s way of acting in this priesthood. He has taken an oath to Christ, which he never did to any of the order of Aaron. God never gave them any such assurance of their continaunce, never engaged himself by oath or promise that theirs should be an everlasting priesthood and therefore gave them no reason to expect the perpetuity of it, but rather to look upon it as a temporary law. But Christ was made a priest with the oath of God. The Lord hath sworn and will not repent. Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec, Here God has upon oath declared the immutability, excellency, efficacy and eternity of the priesthood of Christ.
So again Hebrews 7:12 says “For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law. So why are we operating still under the law? Why do will still think sin is the problem? Why are still preaching and teaching the ministry of death? Why are we still beating people up from the pulpit? Why? Why? Why?
I will leave you with this scripture, Romans 10:4, “FOR CHRIST IS THE END OF THE LAW FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS TO EVERY ONE THAT BELIEVETH.
THERE IS A NEW HIGH PRIEST IN TOWN AND HIS NAME IS JESUS CHRIST!
