The House of Aaron is a group of Messianic Christians. What are their worship services like? What is their church structure, and how large is this group? Dr. John Conrad is chief high priest and will answer these questions.
GT: Do you have any temples or anything like that?
John: One of the things, in fact, we were doing that today, when you came in, and we were concluding, we have a setup. I don’t know if you noticed, we have the menorah, the altar, where we walk through the items that were in the temple, which to us are all pictures of the work of Yeshua, the work of Jesus. When you look at the laver, he says that He is the Word made flesh, and we’re washed by the water of the Word. He is the perfect sacrifice. He’s the light of the world. The menorah, when you look at every single thing in the temple, it’s a picture of the redemptive work of the Messiah. So, we have a service, and we are going to build a building. That’s what we were talking about when you came.
GT: Right. Yeah, I could tell.
John: That will have what we call the sanctuary part where we walk through these pictures, the altar of sacrifice, the laver, the menorah, the altar of incense, the table of the bread of the presence. All of these are pictures of the work of the Messiah and leading us into the presence of God. So, we are in the process of building. We don’t like to call it a temple. Maybe a sanctuary might be a better way to describe it.
GT: Okay, so it wouldn’t be like an LDS endowment or anything.
John: No, and I don’t know as much about the LDS temples. I know just a little because, of course, it’s kept somewhat secret, but I think it would be somewhat different.
GT: So, it would be open to the public, probably?
John: Yes, it would be. Though, if a person wanted to walk through it, it wouldn’t require affiliation with the House of Aaron, but it would be very difficult to walk through that if you did not believe in Yeshua, if you didn’t believe in Jesus as the Messiah. It’s a little bit like and I think the LDS have closed communion. Our communion is open.
