We have a great High Priest (Lord Jesus) who rules over God’s house (Your BODY is the temple of the Lord under the New Covenant – 1 Corinthians 6:19 – not buildings).
The mandate for the Body of Christ is to gather & edify one another… and to resist man-made religious hierarchy, approaching the Throne of God boldly, trusting Him, loving Him and in person:
“And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. By his death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way through the curtain into the Most Holy Place. And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God’s house, let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.
Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” ~ Hebrews 10:19-25
Do your own homework. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you.
You are the righteousness of God in Christ. Gather together to edify & encourage one another with what the Lord is showing you.
As a believer, you can expect to grow in Christ rather quickly – maturity in Christ is not necessarily only a matter of longevity, but also of proximity. RUN to Him. STAY with Him…
You can BOLDLY GO to Him!
