KINGS AND PRIESTS
“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever, Amen. (Revelation 1:5-6 KJV)
One of the numerous wonderful blessings IN Christ is a definite change of our status from slaves on their way to hell, bound by the fear of condemnation, to KINGS AND PRIESTS, washed in the Blood of Christ, on their way to heaven. Only in Jesus Christ is this possible. Kings and priests have their roots in Melchisedec. According to Hebrews 7:1-12:
“For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him;
To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation king of righteousness, and after that also king of Salem, which is king of peace.” (Heb 7:1-2)
Melchidesec was a type of Christ. Jesus is the prince of peace and the king of righteousness. When you give your life to Christ, you connect to his kingship and everlasting priesthood. You also connect to His peace and righteousness. The Bible states:
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.” (2 peter 2:9 KJV)
Glory to God! We are called out of darkness in order to display Gods marvellous light. Priests are consecrated. Kings reign. Kings legislate. Kings decree. Kings have authority.
From today, determine never to allow dethroned forces rule over you. God forbid that any satanic priest should mesmerize you. From today, because of your status as a royal priest, failure, sickness, poverty and the demons behind them must bow at your command. According to Revelations 5:10, because of our new status in Christ as kings and priests, WE SHALL REIGN ON THE EARTH.
In conclusion, he who as a consecrated priest walks with God, will rule as a conquering king over satan.

Give your life to Jesus Christ . Say the simple prayer below:
Dear Heavenly Father, I worship you. I acknowledge that I am a sinner. Please have mercy on me and forgive all my sins. Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, I unreservedly surrender my life to you. I confess that you died and rose from the dead for me. Please be my Lord and personal saviour, and grant me the grace to live for you all the days of my life. Thank you so much Lord Jesus. I proclaim I am born again. Amen.

Lord your loving kindness is forever more. You have been so good. I can never thank you enough for all you have done for me. Lord you have been so good, to me.
I celebrate your work on the cross of Calvary. I appropriate your victory on the cross as my victory. I thank you because in you I am a royal priest. I thank you for calling me out of darkness into your marvellous light. Through you I shall reign on earth, dethroned forces will never rule over me, in Jesus Name. Amen.
