Kings, Prophets, and Priests

The Gospel Restored

The most famous and distinguished officers among the nations, are Kings, Prophets, and Priests. These dignities are united in the person of the Messiah, who is set forth in Scripture as the greatest of Prophets, the King of Kings, and the High Priest of Mankind.

The great evils which have most of all characterized the nations of the earth, are 1st, Ignorance of the divine character. 2d. Sin, the consequence of ignorance. 3d. War, the effect of the combined evils of ignorance and sin.—The offices of Christ are instituted in reference to these evils, as a Prophet, he enlightens us in the divine character; as a Priest he takes away our sins; and as a King, he rules us in peace; he is therefore called “King of Peace,” “Prince of Peace,” and so forth.
