    We are not Israel, but the Body of Christ

    The Body of Christ is not Israel, a replacement for Israel or "spiritual Israel" (as we often hear). The Body of Christ is not born again, but a "new creature" (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). Members of the Body of Christ are never referred to as priests, but Israel shall be an holy nation of priests (Matthew 19:28 KJV, 1 Peter 2:9 KJV). Can you think of any other differences between that of Israel and the BoC?
    2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    Paul defines the word of truth as the gospel of your salvation (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV, Ephesians 1:13 KJV). Now, study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed by rightly dividing it!

    Did you know, Mayor, that the name "Lydia" means Native of Lydia, but that's not where she's from....she's from Greensboro?

    Wonder what heir's name is?

Did born again Levites cease being priests when they joined the Body? Do you believe the prophecy in Revelation about being priests and kings only applies to Jews?

    Nope, He is the Head of the Body that members of the Body of Christ comprise.

    He is not the Body's priest; He is the mediator between God and lost men; the means to their being reconciled with God by the Son's finished work through the Spirit.

    The Body has direct access to the Father.

    The Body has direct access to the Father.
    The priesthood which enters the Holy Place has direct communion with Christ, but they minister as priests to those at the gate of the temple.

    So it is even today.

    Only the true priests can understand, and see it--

    Joh 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

    1Co 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:

    Hebrews 4:15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.

    Can you claim that about yourself, Danoh?
