Which priesthood does the office of "King" come under? Is it patriarchal? Is it Melchezedek? What about "Queen" or "Priestess"?
It is my understanding that we can be ordained to the office of "King", or ("Queen" for women), or "Priest" or ("Priestess" for women). In the context it appears that the women’s ordainations are priesthood ordainations. It also appears that the men’s ordainations are priesthood ordainations. But are they offices in the priesthood?
Is King and Queen an ordaination like David of old? Does it give us the authority to "rule" over whatever? Does that mean it’s for ruling in a non-religious kingdom? If so then when would I use it? If it’s to rule in a religious kingdom then doesn’t that come under normal priesthood authority? If so then wouldn’t it be a priesthood office?
I’ll quit rambling, I have more thoughts and questions on this, but maybe I’ll be enlightened by your help and won’t have to ask them.
