“But the Levitical priests, the sons of Zadok, who kept charge of My sanctuary when the sons of Israel went astray from Me, shall come near to Me to minister to Me; and they shall stand before Me. They shall enter My sanctuary; they shall come near to My table to minister to Me and keep My charge”
Hallelujah, beloved child and priest of God! He “who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood,” that is our Savior and High Priest Jesus Christ, has also “made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father” (Revelation 1:5-6). Therefore, because we are His kingdom of priests, we are greatly blessed of our God to be able to daily “enter My sanctuary” and “come near to My table to minister to Me!”
What divine favor we are graciously granted, as priests unto God, to enter “My sanctuary,” in our inner court, the inner room within us, for we are a temple of the Holy Spirit. In “My sanctuary” we are blessed to “come near” to our God is spirit and truth.
In “My sanctuary,” being near our Lord, in direct response to His divine favor and call to us, as His kingdom of priests, we are blessed to minister to Him – in praise, gratitude, stillness, prayer, reflection, singing, – being with our God in a truly fruitful real-time abiding in Him!
We abide in His word, in His love, in His presence, in His joy – we have come near to our God, as His priests, to minister to Him. We can only be blessed and renewed as a result of our joyful obedience to “enter My sanctuary.”
God is calling, every moment, to His Own church of a New Covenant today – “come near to Me to minister to Me.” Yes, let us all “enter My sanctuary.” Then, once one is in God’s sanctuary, then “come near to My table to minister to Me.”
O beloved, we are the ones who are blessed when we come near to our God to minister to Him. To even see that our God desires us to minister to Him is such a life changing blessing. He loves us this much, that He desires for us to spend holy ministering unto God time with Him – time in which He is pleased and we are blessed! What could be better?!
And on top of all of this, when we do minister to our Lord God, we are entering into the obedient fulfillment of a long standing desire God has often expressed, since the time of Adam onward, to walk in intimate fellowship with us.
Let us sing His praises and let us declare the divine call and blessing of our ordained and anointed priesthood to our God.
“Enter My sanctuary” today, beloved, and “come near to My table to minister to Me.” Hallelujah!
