The Five Foundations: Priesthood Lesson Three

 GODS plane for his priest’s on earth was for them to be a conduit of his power, his presence, and his blessings.

Each morning in the temple at the conclusion of the morning service the officiating priest was commanded to bless the people with these words:

Numbers 6:22-26 : And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. 

In the New Testament Jesus said it like this:

Matthew 10:13 : And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.

  In this third lesson on Priesthood we investigate what holiness is. As priests we are called to holiness therefore we should define what this means. Are spirituality and holiness the same thing? These topics and others are covered in this 45 minute teaching.
