Going to transition to occasional read-only of this board. It's scope requires only pre-published denomination-based references/interpretations. Any other exegesis is forbidden.
Perhaps a new board is warranted where scripture and personal testimony is the scope from those who know and experience personal relationship with Christ without an intermediary,
"behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom", Matt 27:51 is more than accessibility, it is personally experiencing the Lord,
"I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.", Rev 3:20
Personal words from the Lord is manna. What the priests/teachers offer is showbread only.
"For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus", 1 Tim 2:5
Showbread is at best a catalyst, second-hand testimony. It is beneficial, but only manna brings one to maturity.
"you have no need someone teach you", 1 Jn 2:27
"What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs.", Matt 10:27
"Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said. And if a revelation comes to someone who is seated, the first speaker should stop. For you can all prophesy in turn so that everyone may be instructed and encouraged", 1 Cor 14:29-31
