The Nuclear Priesthood
“… And the priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto the Lord” - (Lev.1:19). “By the which will we are sanctified though the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified” - (Heb.10:10,14).
We have a new scientific priesthood today that claims to have the truth of the universe and seeks to replace Bible truth. People are believing sinful scientist’s word and not the word of God. The reverence given to priests has been transferred to scientists today. The work of the scientist is being sanctified and Bible truth is being abandoned in favor of science: faith in scientists is being substituted for faith in Christ. A scientific priesthood is now the deliverer of ultimate truths. We exalt them and are supposed to defer to them. They have an aura of holiness about them and we are urged to believe their greater wisdom.
Especially nuclear scientists have become the new priesthood. On July 16, 1945, the greatest minds of the century, full of worldly wisdom which is foolishness with God, ate from the tree of knowledge at Los Alamos (the cottonwood tree) and invented the greatest killing machine in history, the nuclear bomb. It was the ultimate quest: the development of the ultimate weapon that kills the whole earth in one hour. Our nuclear priesthood will soon offer up a giant human burnt offering of nuclear bombs upon all the wicked who have rejected the true burnt offering sacrifice of Christ on the cross. Christ our high priest has put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself but He’s coming again in wrath.
God’s burn offering in the O.T. was showing man that the fiery wrath of God will fall upon all who have not the sacrifice of Christ for their sins. If you don’t have Christ as your burnt offering sacrifice for your sins, then you’ll go to hell. Holocaust means “whole burnt offering” and if you’re not saved by Christ, you’ll be thrown into the nuclear holocaust and also the final holocaust in the lake of fire. The nuclear priesthood has prepared the fire for a giant worldwide burnt offering holocaust upon the earth so all men will see a hell on earth, the bad result of eating from the tree of knowledge. “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” - (2 Pet.3:10). Peter, who once made his living “fishen,” has here prophesied of “atomic fission” under inspiration of God and the fiery end of the world. The devil is “fission” for men with his nuclear priesthood.
God gave us a perfect picture of God the Father offering up His beloved Son on the cross as the human burnt offering sacrifice for sin for the whole world, long before the priesthood of Aaron. He commanded Abraham to offer up his son Isaac as a burnt offering on Mt. Moriah, where Solomon later built the temple. “And he said, take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering…” - (Gen.22:2).
And remember Elijah’s contest with the 450 false prophets of Baal on Mt. Carmel with his burnt offering lit by the fire of the Lord. Mt. Carmel overlooks the plain of Megiddo, which will ignite a nuclear Armageddon at Christ’s second coming. This also shows us the giant human burnt offering by nuclear bombs upon the whole earth. The new nuclear priesthood is the modern-day priests of Baal, who, by playing God, have brought down fire from the heaven. And the two witnesses will be the two prophets with the spirit and power of Elijah that testify just before Armageddon.
During this 20th century, man learned the knowledge of the powerful, little atom, which is God’s basic building block for the creation of the universe. (God is the great scientist). But because of sin, man’s heart and mind is darkened, and he doesn’t have the wisdom to use his knowledge in a wise, godly way. He used his knowledge of the atom for evil and not for good and now the atomic clock is ticking close to Armageddon.
In the eerie gloom of nuclear bombs, what a peace it is to know that Christ is coming soon to take his saints away in the rapture before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. Christ told us in (Lk.21:28) “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” And in vs.36 He says “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass and to stand before the son of man.”
Are you saved and born again? If not, repent of your sins and believe in Christ in your heart by faith and you will receive forgiveness of sins and be saved from hell and become a new born again creature in Christ having eternal life. God sent His beloved Son down to earth to solve man’s greatest problem, sin and the punishment of sin which is death. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” - (Rom.6:23). Jesus Christ is God’s perfect, sinless, supreme, one time sacrifice for sin on the cross. Don’t spurn the love and grace of God in His beloved Son on the cross, or the wrath of God abides upon you.
