CONFRONT THE PROBLEM-4
Joshua 3:13 “And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon an heap.”
Leviticus 6:13 “The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out.”
Priesthood is a daily affair, the altar is the place of meeting between the priest and God, and as such must be serviced continually. So, when God spoke to Joshua that the priest must go first, he was referring to this class of priests!
One of the reasons why many New Testament priests confront situations without success is that they don’t service the altar as recommended. God said the priest must burn wood on the altar daily, not sometimes!
The altar simply represents the place of prayer while the wood is the Word and meditation. You service your priesthood with your daily worship, prayer and meditation on the word.
When God wanted the River Jordan to part for them, he asked his priests to go in and confront it first. He also added another clause, he said these priests must bear the ark of the LORD!
In order words, they must be well acquainted with the Holy Ghost and God’s presence. They must be well aware of their dominion mandate. The voice of a priest that services the altar well, carries weight in heaven.
A pastor said, “A part-time believer cannot defeat a full time devil!” Very true.
The devil is always going to and fro, ever active, you cannot defeat him with your occasional Christianity. You didn’t do anything to qualify as a priest, Christ did all that needed to be done but there are things you must do to maintain that office.
Once your priesthood is in place, every challenge you confront will collapse like a pack of cards before you.
Beloved, don’t neglect your daily worship, consecration, prayer and the Word, these are the things that makes a priest thick!
