The Lord is about to bring forth the inspired priests; the
true prophets and judges to rule within the household of faith.
The term "inspired priests" is taken from both
Old Testament and New Testament Scriptures and generally references
teachers who receive their understanding of the Word through
divine revelation. The Apostle Paul stated that his revelation
of the Word came not by the teaching of man nor by reading
a book, but rather by a divine revelation of Jesus Christ.
These inspired teachers will promote sanctification within
the Church, making the Church a suitable dwelling place for
the Spirit of God so that the believers can become partakers
of His divine nature and His holy character.
"Lord sanctify them in truth; thy word is truth"
All of these purposes in respect to the inspired priest or
teacher relate to the true biblical definition of discipleship,
teaching believers to become the Lord's friend. This discipleship
will also lead the Church into the full revelation and realization
of Galatians 5:22-23, the fruit of the Spirit.
In times past, many leaders were used by the Holy Spirit
with powerful gifts of healing and words of knowledge and
wisdom, even though there was deficiency in Godly character
within the individuals. The Lord is now stating that will
no longer be the case. It will now become essential for the
end-time leadership to be partakers of His divine nature bearing
the fruit of the Spirit as a prerequisite for the release
and impartation of the power gifts necessary for end-time
Another main function of these inspired teachers will be
to reveal Biblically the requirements of the Lord for the
end-time Church. Through their revelation of the Word by the
Holy Spirit, they will teach the Church the necessary steps
of preparation and consecration in order to be viable participants
in the glorious ministry yet to come.
