  • Theology Club: The Priesthood of Christ

    1Peter 2:9

    But ye are
    a chosen generation,
    a Royal Priesthood,
    an holy nation,
    a peculiar people;


    That ye should shew forth the praises of Him
    Who hath called you out of darkness
    into His marvellous Light:


    Does this apply to modern Christianity?

    What do priests, the members of the priesthood, DO?

    What is the meaning of priestly actions?

    What is so peculiar about Christians?

          Hi and most do not see Ex 19:6 that Israel was to be a Kingdom of Priests in the Millennium and also Rev 1:6 is way different than the Body of Christ !!

              So do you believe that Christians are not the Children of Israel, the Body of Christ, according to the Promise?

              Do you think that Rev was written only for Jews?
              Do you think it was written prior to 70AD?

                "There is one thing worse than going to Hell. That would be going to Hell and having it be a surprise."
                Terence Mc Lean

                [most will be very surprised]


                Everyone who has not believed the Gospel of grace is not saved, no matter what else they believe or do.
                By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?

                  Who do you think that was written to ? Who is a peculiar people ? Haven't we heard that elsewhere in the Bible ?

                      It was written to the followers of Christ in the first century, and passed on from them to you-ward...

                      Who is a peculiar people? Haven't we heard that elsewhere in the Bible ?
                      I was just wondering what this word 'peculiar' meant when it was written here to the first century Christians...

                        OK - So what traits of specifically Christian peoples would make them odd, unusual, weird, unique, etc...??

                          Hos 11:1 When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

                          Mat 2:15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

                          Eph 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
                          Eph 5:24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
                          Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
                          Eph 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
                          Eph 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
                          Eph 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
                          Eph 5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
                          Eph 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
                          Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
                          Eph 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
                          Eph 5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

                          LA
                          My theology is that the elect of Israel became the scattered church among the nations, and when filled up with the full number of gentiles who believe to become one with them, then Christ will return and gather them, and God will then pour out His wrath on the unbelievers of both Jew and Gentile.

                            Hi and Revelation is about the PURGING of all Jews in the Great Tribulation and all Jews who do NOT accept the #666 will be Kings and Priests to Christ in the Millennium and no Gentiles are accepted !!

                            In the end there are 2 groups left Israel , who are an Earthly Kingdom and the Body of Christ who are a Heavenly people !!
