Jan. 1885, Contributor 6:121; “FROM the death of Moses dates the supremacy of the Aaronic Priesthood. So long as he remained, the Melchisedek Priesthood was the controlling power in Israel, as it must be at all times wherever present and in active operation, but when Moses was taken the Melchisedek Priesthood went also, and the Lesser Priesthood was left to bear rule in the person of Eleazer.”
Psalm 110:1-4; “The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. 2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. 3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. 4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.”
Moses was never a priest.
