In the New Testament we find our Lord walking out all five of the Eph.4:11 ministry gifts. He was the great Apostle, the Prophet, the Evangelist, the Pastor, and the Teacher. He said that He came not to do away with the Old Testament Law but to fulfill it.
Therefore, along with His work in the New Testament as Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher the Lord also showed us His work as the Old Testament Prophet, Priest, and King. Our Lord's work falls under three headings:
(1) His work as an O.T. PROPHET
(2) His work as an O.T. PRIEST, and
(3) His work as an O.T. KING.
Why is this important? Because as believers we carry the same anointing and the same work as our Lord. This includes His anointing from the offices of the Old Testament Law. The Lord said that all He did we will do. We know in Rev.1:6 that we are kings and priests.
Revelation 1:6 ESV and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Now with that thought, go back and read these Scriptures listed below and see yourself in them. Then look for all the ways our Lord manifested Himself in the works as Prophet, Priest, and King in the Gospels and then say, Lord, I can do this in and through You.
John 5:17 ESV But Jesus answered them, "My Father is working until now, and I am working."
John 4:34 ESV Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work."
John 9:4-5 ESV We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work. (5) As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."
John 17:4 ESV I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do.
