THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH
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. I Peter 2:9
Under the old covenant men would come to God through a human mediator, the High Priest who would, in turn, go into the Holy of Holies to make a sacrifice to atone for the sins of the people. Today under the new covenant we have a Divine Mediator, the Lord Jesus Christ who shed His own blood to make a way for us to go directly into the very throne of the Most High!
We who are born again new creations in Christ are a royal priesthood able to minister under the supreme authority and power of God! We can now enter through the blood of Christ into His presence without the aid of a human priest. The church today lacks this ability, for the most part, do to the spiritual condition of many members who are not saved or enlightened to the truth of God's word. The present-day church is set up like the old testament model with a shepherd/sheep mentality!
The pastor is the High Priest and the congregation are just called to sit, sing, pray, listen, shut up and tithe! This model is found nowhere in scripture, especially for a pastor to lead an assembly of royal priests! Likened to a human body the supernatural body of Christ is comprised of many members who all have a certain function to accomplish just as our own human body, such as the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, and so on! Remember, we are His body in the earth!
