as i asked rotikingAgony said:Qualification for priests:
- Must be a son of Aaron, from the tribe of Levi. Whether black, red, purple or lily white, this was the first requirement for priests.
- Keep the Moral and Mosaic laws as prescribed in the old covenant.
He came, He died, He rose up (AMEN!), and the role of the priests were fulfilled through Him. The veil was rent in twain. Jesus is the only intercessor we need; our High Priest. Anyone who is impressed upon by the Holy Spirit may be a teacher, pastor, minister, evangelist, apostle, disciple .... etc. However, the intercessory role to God is filled. No man stands in place for my sin. Only my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ; He pleads my case in the Heavenly court. Of course, if you're not a Christian, then you can have any intercessory role(s) you want. Likewise, if you are a Christian, but the Bible is not the test for your faith, then you are essentially free to define the role (and the Commandments for that matter) in anyway that pleases you. As such, you're free to create your own doctrine. But a thorough study of the sanctuary system, it's types and antitypes, should answer the question as it relates Christianity.
- Act as intercessors for the people to God until that Intercessor, the Messiah, should come.
- Offer sacrifice on behalf of the people to atone for sin until the sacrifice of the Lamb of God, Christ Jesus, was to be made.
What about the responsibility part of the priests. That is not done away with.
Is the temple going to be rebuilt in the kingdom? Christ rent the veil, will it be rebuilt?
Yes it is. so who will be carring the positions of the sactuary?
The levitical priesthood. The sin intercission wasnt the only role of the priest they had multiple roles. And roles that still need to be done. And any or everybody cannot do them.
I think we are getting the job of apriest confused. Anyone can teach but to fufill the office of priest can only be done by the oppointed
