Holy Offices

The whole point of the Pauline use of the word “office” or “function” or “praxis” is that in every realm sacred rule must prevail. In every realm everything must be seen as under God and His word, that there is no area of life that is outside of God and therefore no area of life, not an atom in the universe, can be seen apart from God and His word. In terms of the Bible all honest callings are functions or works of God’s people in God’s kingdom, and are an aspect of the holiness of dominion work. Thus when we speak of holy offices we are talking about the functions of God’s people everywhere.
