The Crown of The High Priest

5 Nov

The Crown of The High Priest…

The High Priest of Israel had a crown on his head, a crown of pure gold called the nezer; symbolically it circles his mind and his thoughts. We get the word “Nazirite” from the word nezer. Nezer means to cut off.

The Nazarite was one who made a vow to the Lord to be separate and to abstain from things that are not of God. To have a holy thought life. You too have to separate the thoughts that are not pure.

When things come in your thoughts that are not of God, cut it off immediately and do not let it dwell within you. Separate yourself from all thoughts of anger, jealousy, lust, indulgency, depression, gloom and doubt; whatever it is, cut it off.

Set up boundaries or hedges in your heart and mind to warn yourself from sin creeping into your life. Do not minister without your crown; circle your thoughts with the crown of God, the nezer.

Cut off the old ways of your life and consecrate the new, so your thought life will be crowned with the glory of God.

I am the Lord, who brought you up out of Egypt to be your God; therefore be holy, because I am holy. Leviticus 11:45

Set the “nezer” around your mind and your thought life. Establish boundaries against ungodly thoughts. Let your thoughts be as holy as the high priest’s crown.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
