God calls us “a royal priesthood”. This means that we are kings as well as priests under the king-priesthood of Jesus Christ. This has never happened b4 in the history of God’s people. In the Old Testament, kings and priests were two distinct groups of people. You were either a king or priest, but not both at the same time.
Today, bcoz we are in Christ, we are king-priests — a royal priesthood.
This means that we have a double portion of speaking power bcoz as kings, “Where the word of a king is, there is power” (Ecclesiastes 8:4), and as priests, “by their word every controversy and every assault shall be settled”. (Deuteronomy 21:5)
So if u are a Christian businessman, u will have an edge over worldly businessmen. What u say about your business deals will come 2 pass. And if u are falsely accused, know that by your very word, every controversy and every assault will be settled!
And as a king-priest parent, when u bless your children, your words have the power 2 set in motion supernatural events which will bring them into God’s prosperous abundance and super abounding grace. And there will be such a courage and resilience about them that it will empower them 2 win the fights of life!
When the devil comes 2 u and says that u will die young bcoz your father and grandfather died young, or that u will never be successful bcoz u are not well-educated, u must remember that the devil is neither a king nor a priest. There is no power in his words. But there is power in yours bcoz u are a king-priest in Christ!
So instead of agreeing with him, believe and declare, “I will not die young. With long life He will satisfy me and show me His salvation!” Say, “The Lord will make my way prosperous and give me good success!” Use your double portion of speaking power and see these blessings come 2 pass!
