Hebrews  10:21 And having an high priest over the house of God;  10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

Regardless of the perilous times that we are in, there are still houses of God in the form of local church assemblies or gatherings. It is instructive to note however that there is just only One House of God, which is the Universal Body of Christ, the invisible Church consisting of those who have been called out of darkness into the marvelous light of Christ. 

While we have priests  that are called to oversee the local assemblies of believers, there is only one High Priest that we have as the Church of Christ globally. And His name is Jesus Christ. He is actively alive and continues ever with an unchangeable priesthood. (Hebrews  7:24). Every priest defers to Him but he defers to no other for in Him now dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily. 

Know also that you are equally a royal priesthood in Christ regardless of the truth that some are chosen among us to serve us through the preaching and teaching of the word. Every priest that serves in the local assemblies of believers is to help their joy by enhancing their faith in the High Priest. He is to teach the people of God all the commandments and promises of their High Priest to the end that they are built up & established in Him.

He is also to teach them the faithfulness of God so that they can always trust in Him no matter what they face in life; in whatever situation or circumstance that they find themselves in.  

However, as believers in Christ, the responsibility for holding fast to the  profession of our faith in the Lord is that of each and everyone of us. No priest or pastor is meant to profess faith in Christ for you. When you come to a crossroad in life or to be more precise, in 2019, it is your responsibility to know how to hold tenaciously to what you believe and to both confess and act out your faith in Christ. 

Please be careful not to hold unto whatever any man of God says without first ensuring that it fully aligns with the faith of the Son of God or the High Priest of our profession. That is the only sure word that you can hold unto without wavering in 2019. 

May you be a living witness of the faithfulness of God and the fulfilment of all His promises to you in 2019 in Jesus name. (Amen)
