A lot of what we experience from day to day has a lot to do with what goes on within our body. The body houses our thoughts and behaviors which eventually puts the body into motion. Anyone who is in touch with their internal feelings realize that some people want to capture what you think and feel in order to manipulate what you do. They say, “That’s Me” in order to assume control of your conscience, but their guidance is not healthy for self or anyone else. In a spiritual sense, they are claiming themselves to be a Priest over all the activity within your “house.” They will tell you what to do and when to do it, then reward you with non-spiritual and worldly rewards. They are priests of behavioral modification which gives negative feedback for activity outside their “Priesthood,” and gives carnal rewards for obeying their “ceremonies and duties.”
We have a Priest who manages our “house,” a Priest within the Temple of God, whose body we are. For anyone else to claim that spot by saying, “That’s Me,” keeps our thoughts and emotions filled with everything that separates us from fellowship with God. Those false priests would create a house full of demons to bring destruction to the body and to one another. Within the world is much mental illness, murder, violence, hatred, disrespect for God, and people who identify with causes that do nothing but protest and riot. We who live by the way of the Cross set ourselves apart from the world, but the teachings of the false priests lead people into the unrest of the world.
The only rightful Priest within the Temple of God is His Son Jesus Christ. He is all and in all. The Priestly duties of Christ is to restore our fellowship with God, who owns the House, by the remission of sinful nature. He has done that when He shed His atoning blood on the Cross of Calvary. Christ now works within the heart, soul, and spirit of those who accept His Priesthood. The One true Priest restores the Spirit of God’s love, kindness, goodwill, perseverance, patience, self-control, peace, meekness, gentleness, faithfulness, and goodness towards the sinner.
