And you will be called priests of the Lord…You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast. Instead of their shame My people will receive a double portion…they will inherit a double portion in their land…
You are called “priests of the Lord” because Jesus has cleansed you with His blood and made you kings and priests to God. (Revelation 1:5-6) That is if you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior and are “Born Again”. And as priests of the Lord, God says to you, “You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast.” And you will “inherit a double portion in their land”. Under the old covenant, God ordained the priests of Israel to stand between Him and His people. They brought God’s word to the people and the people’s needs and sins to God. Under the new covenant, all believers (Born again Christians) are priests of the Lord, reading God’s word and seeking to understand it, confessing their sins directly to God, and ministering to others.
Believe God when He says that His people will receive a double portion. This double portion includes blessings of favor, fruitfulness, success and health. In fact, the people around you will look at you and your descendants, and acknowledge that you are a people that the Lord has blessed!
