QUESTION (1911-Z)–2–Have we any Scripture to show that the Aaronic priesthood will exercise their priestly office in the Millennial Age?
ANSWER.–One Scripture that might be understood so to teach is found in the book of Malachi, which says that when the Lord shall come into His Temple, “He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; and He shall purify the sons of Levi and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.”–`Mal. 3:3`.
Some might apply this Scripture to the sons of Levi in a literal way. But we think that it is antitypical, that the Church constitutes the Levitical system and that these are the spiritual Levites whom the Purifier will make ready, that they may offer unto God an acceptable sacrifice, as antitypical Levites and a Royal Priesthood.
