My Reply:

Only the priests are given the "light" to give to others (1Pet.2:5,9; Matt.5:14; Mal.2:7; Deut.10:8; 17:9; 33:10; Lev.10:8,11; 1John2:20,27; Phil.2:15; Rev.1:20; 11:3,4; Zech.4:11,14).

These are chosen by God, through Christ, and no one else is to serve as His priest. (John15:16; Eze.44:7,8,9; 1Cor.12:18; Isa.43:10,21; 1Pet.2:9). Those that perform priestly duties who are not priests, are worthy of death in God's judgment (Num.3:10; 18:7). The priests under the NEW Covenant, are the anointed (1Pet.2:9; Rev.5:9,10; 20:6).
This symbolic temple is not to be trespassed either (1Cor.3:16,17; Rev.11:2; Matt.24:15; 2Thess.2:4,9; Lev.20:26; 1Pet.2:9; Isa.43:21; Dan.8:13; 7:23; Rev.6:10; Isa.6:11; 63:18; Luke21:24; Heb.10:29; Jer.12:10).
Even these must continue to remain in unity with Christ (John15:5; 1John2:28) and holy spirit (John14:26; 1Cor.2:14; Matt.25:4; Rev.11:3,4), if they are to continue to serve in this way (2Pet.1:10; Luke21:36; Matt.24:24,13). There are faithful and unfaithful priests. The student must discern the difference (Matt.7:20; John7:17) according to the guidance of scripture (2Tim.3:15).
The anointed priests are the representatives of Christ (2Cor.5:20; Matt.10:20) to the world (Matt.5:14; 1Cor.4:1).
As you know, I am always available to aid others to gain Bible understanding. What Holy Spirit declines to give me, I try to accept God's decision, and will not give you my own answers. Many interpretations are already published here.
