There are 3 God anointed. God chosen. “roles” or “offices” in the OT that lead Israel.
SLIDE: KING, Prophet and Priest
The Easiest! Most familiar.
- The King and Israel 1 Samuel 8:1-22 218
The Prophet Samuel warns and then anoints Saul
1 Samuel 8: 6 But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. 7 And the Lord told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. 8 As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. 9 Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will claim as his rights.”
Pharaoh and Egyptian empire!
King Saul: Exactly what God said!
Chooses David. Favorite King!
God Promises a “Forever King” from David!
People were looking for this! King on David’s throne!
In the Newer Testament:
Christ’s coronation was the cross!
Crown of thorns.
Why Jesus is so amazing! = KING!
SLIDE: King, PROPHET, Priest
The 2nd Role or Office. LESS KNOWN!
God said to MOSES: I will raise up a prophet from among their countrymen like you, and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him (Deuteronomy 18:18).
PROPHET = Pro “before” Pheme: To Speak
“Speak Before” Or “Speak in the place of someone else”
I would LOVE that! Back to the Future!
Prophet = What they said came true! KILLED!
SPEAK TO THE KING!!!
Book of “Samuel”… Samuel is a prophet!
Checks and Balances of power
Kings also prophesied!
John The Baptist: THE Prophet = Messiah = NO!
The Messiah = THE Prophet!
JESUS: Who do people say that I am… one of the prophets!
Why Jesus is so amazing… NT Writers!
Prophet:. “Thus Saith the LORD!”
Jesus didn’t speak FOR God he spoke AS GOD
SLIDE: King, Prophet, PRIEST
THE LEAST KNOWN!
Spiritually = Daily “Most important”
The priests were exactly what you think they were.
Intermediary between God and man.
Temple, Rules, Sacrifices, People and themselves
THE HIGH PRIEST / once a year,
CURTAIN Holy of Holies
The King – Vs The Priest Pg 346
2 Chronicles 26:16-21 Pg.
16 But after Uzziah became powerful, his pride led to his downfall. He was unfaithful to the Lord his God, and entered the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense. 17 Azariah the priest with eighty other courageous priests of the Lord followed him in. 18 They confronted King Uzziah and said, “It is not right for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to the Lord. That is for the priests, the descendants of Aaron, who have been consecrated to burn incense. Leave the sanctuary, for you have been unfaithful; and you will not be honored by the Lord God.”
19 Uzziah, who had a censer in his hand ready to burn incense, became angry. While he was raging at the priests in their presence before the incense altar in the Lord’s temple, leprosy broke out on his forehead. 20 When Azariah the chief priest and all the other priests looked at him, they saw that he had leprosy on his forehead, so they hurried him out. Indeed, he himself was eager to leave, because the Lord had afflicted him.
21 King Uzziah had leprosy until the day he died. He lived in a separate house[b]—leprous, and banned from the temple of the Lord. Jotham his son had charge of the palace and governed the people of the land.
PROPHECY: Zechariah 6:13 It is he who will build the temple of the Lord, and he will be clothed with majesty and will sit and rule on his throne. And he will be a priest on his throne. And there will be harmony between the two.’
WHY Jesus is so amazing!!!
Curtain is torn!
SLIDE: JESUS = King, Prophet & High Priest!
SLIDE: Hebrews 7:27 Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself.
SLIDE: Hebrews 10: 11 Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12 But when this priest (JESUS) had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God…
WHY Jesus is so awesome!!!
SLIDE: JESUS = King, Prophet & High Priest!
