Priesthood and Restoration Day of Prayer

PRIESTS, SPIRITUAL SACRIFICES & RESTORATION LESSON OBJECTIVES To present the full scope of the Gospel of the Kingdom. To reawaken believers to our calling as Priests. Present the God-ordained path for (all) restoration. THE GOSPEL If we believe in the death of Jesus Christ for our sins, we can be forgiven, we can receive eternal life, and we can go to heaven when we die. True, but the gospel also takes us out of the kingdom of satan into the Kingdom of God (Colossians 1:13). The gospel makes us Kings and Priests here and now. Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. WE ARE A HOLY PRIESTHOOD DOING WHAT? 1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 1 Peter 2:4-5 As you come to Him, the living stone, rejected by men but chosen and precious in God’s sight, you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. A Priest offers spiritual sacrifices. GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD Holy, Power/Authority and Order. God is willing to rule and be responsible/provide for all aspects (spiritual and secular) of a submissive human race. He has put Jesus Christ in charge as Head. Holy Priesthood is the scriptural means provided for believers to partake of God’s Kingdom and its provisions. SPIRITUAL SACRIFICES A Priest offers spiritual sacrifices. Offer our bodies as a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1). Offer praise, thanksgiving, sharing and doing good (Hebrews 13:15-16). Intercession with fasting: Jesus (Hebrews 5:7), Paul (2 Corinthians 11:27), The Church in Jerusalem (Acts 12:5) & Antioch (Acts 13:1-3). Preaching & restoration: Jesus went about preaching the gospel of the kingdom, healing and casting out demons (Matthew 9:35).   WHY MUST WE OFFER SPIRITUAL SACRIFICES? It pleases God our Father (1 Timothy 2:1-4). Through Christ’s redemption, we are coopted into a preexisting battle between two kingdoms (Ephesians 6:12). It offers Christ through us rulership in the midst of His enemies bringing about restoration (Psalm 110:1). MODEL PRIESTS Daniel (Daniel 9:2-3) Apostle Paul (2 Corinthians 6:5) Jesus Christ Our Savior Jesus in His earthly ministry (Hebrews 5:7) Jesus in His Heavenly ministry (Hebrews 7:24-25). Hebrews 7:24-25 But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood. Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. CONDITIONS FOR RESTORATION TODAY Putting things back in the right place and right condition. 2 Chronicles 7:14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Hebrews 5:7 In his life on earth Jesus made his prayers and requests with loud cries and tears to God, who could save him from death. Because he was humble and devoted, God heard him. WHAT ARE THE TAKEAWAYS? Christians are a Kingdom of Priests. Priests offer intercessions and preach the gospel of the Kingdom. EFFECTIVE INTERCESSION There are occasions in which God requires the exercise of human faith and human will as an indispensable condition for the fulfillment of His counsels. Effective intercession is typically based upon the revealed will of God or through the revelation of the Holy Spirit. Revelation demands involvement. PRAYER 1 Timothy 2:1-4 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. Acts 4:29-30 And now, O Lord, hear their threats, and give us, your servants, great boldness in preaching your word. Stretch out your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus. PRAYER Self-humbling & confession. Lord, we pray for good government, such that facilitates the preaching of the gospel for this is your will. Divide the tongues of all authorities opposing your purposes and your people in the Nations of the earth. Amen. Lord, grant your servants, great boldness in preaching your word. Back us up with healing power and miraculous signs and wonders. Amen. Personal intercessions/personal revelation.
