In the Old Testament, whenever the priesthood became degraded, God had a provision called the Nazarite vow in which anyone could voluntarily lend themselves to the Lord for His need. Samuel was an example of such a Nazarite. In the New Testament age, much like in Samuel’s time, God is poor as far as the priesthood is concerned. Many believers today do not fulfill their service and function as New Testament priests. In this conference, we take a look at God’s need for the Nazarites, the principle of the Nazarite, the characteristics of a Nazarite and the example of Samuel.
