Verses:

Matthew 18:19-20 “Again, truly I say to you that if two of you are in harmony on earth concerning any matter for which they ask, it will be done for them from My Father who is in the heavens.”

Ministry Reading:

For where there are two or three gathered into My name, there am I in their midst.

In order to live as priests, we have to draw near to God both individually and with other saints. We need to live in the Holy of Holies by exercising our spirit and turning to our spirit to fellowship with God. We should never think of the Holy of Holies as being merely in the heavens. Subjectively speaking, our spirit is the Holy of Holies. God dwells in our spirit; therefore, our spirit is the Holy of Holies, and when we come together to release our spirit and blend in spirit, this blended spirit is the Holy of Holies as well.

Matthew 18:19 speaks of two being in harmony on earth concerning any matter. We can be in harmony only when we spend sufficient time in prayer with one another so that our spirits can be released and blended as one. This harmonious, blended spirit is the Holy of Holies in which God dwells. Whenever we have such a harmonious situation, God’s presence will be there (v. 20).

In order to live as a priest, we must enter into the Holy of Holies and spend time in prayer. When we live in the Holy of Holies, we will bear the image of God and represent the authority of God, and we will be blended as one in spirit and be built up as God’s dwelling place. This will accomplish God’s plan. This is the reason that only priests can accomplish God’s plan. (The Priesthood and God’s Building, Chapter 12, Section 2)
