The Believers Unchangeable Priesthood

The Believers Unchangeable Priesthood

I have been continually study the Levitical law in regards to our Sunday morning services and I realized how insufficient the law was.   However, it proves how profound and complete the new covenant and the lasting effect it has even on who we marry and the families we have. The Believer is a partaker of an unchangeable priesthood by the new birth, in our life now and in the world to come, by virtue of an endless life (Heb 7:16).

I will explain.

My wife and I have been married for 53 years, and were very young when we committed our life to one another. The Lord has given us a wonderful heritage as well.  We are both considered old and feel it, however, I believe by an oath of God, we have an endless life together.


Marriage is honorable, but it should be entered prayerfully and reverently. And genuine love for that woman will bind you together forever. "What you bind on the earth, I'll bind in Heaven." When you walk down the street yonder, she may get old and gray and wrinkled, but that same love you had for her when she was a young, beautiful woman, you'll still have it.

You may get stoop-shouldered, bald-headed, and wrinkled-faced and everything else, but she'll love you just like you did when you stand with wide shoulders and curly hair, if it's really God. For you're looking to the time when you've crossed the river yonder, when you'll spring back, again to young men and women, to live together forever. That's God's Eternal promise. He said He would do it.


The apostle Paul said the same in the book of Hebrews, separating the Levitical law from grace. Heb 7:16 "Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life." That not only spoke of Christ the High Priest of our confession, also the believer-priest today, in a unchangeable priesthood.
