Exodus 19:5-6 (KJV)
Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:
And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
In a Daily Visit with God out of Exodus 19:5, dated December 6, 2011, I wrote,
“God has a peculiar treasure among His treasures; in the Old Testament God laid upon Israel a condition; “If ye will obey“. The New Testament does away with the condition and declares as a fact that the believer is a peculiar treasure to the Lord.
· We are that treasure because we are in Christ
· We are that treasure because of our love for the One God loves
But we ARE that treasure.”
We are God’s treasure, a peculiar people not because of our obedience but because of our faith. We are what Israel never became, “a kingdom of priests.” Every born again, blood-bought child of the Lord is a New Testament priest.
- We stand between men and the Lord.
- We Intercede to God on behalf of men.
- We testify the Word of God to men.
- We serve as salt and as light in this dark and corrupt world.
We are a kingdom of priests. There are no non-priestly Christians. There are only less active, less visible, less effective ones.
