Scripture: Leviticus 16:11-14
Leviticus 16:11-14 is a very important passage because it demonstrates what is required of Priests whenever they approach the Lord. It says, “’And Aaron shall bring the bull of the sin offering, which is for himself, and make atonement for himself and for his house, and shall kill the bull as the sin offering which is for himself. Then he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from the altar before the LORD, with his hands full of sweet incense beaten fine, and bring it inside the veil. And he shall put the incense on the fire before the LORD, that the cloud of incense may cover the mercy seat that is on the Testimony, lest he die. He shall take some of the blood of the bull and sprinkle it with his finger on the mercy seat on the east side; and before the mercy seat he shall sprinkle some of the blood with his finger seven times.” The primary job of the Priest is to activate the mercy of God. That is still essential in this hour and that is a very important initial step. We should not attempt to execute the King’s anointing until we first activate His mercy on the nation. Then we can go judicial, demanding removal of the defiling parties. Practicing priestly mercy is a great platform for pursuing the King’s anointing. The Priestly preparation of going in the Throne-Room by first activating covenantal mercy is essential in executing the King’s anointing. Covenantal mercy demands God remove the enemy!
