are first and foremost ordained by God: when they receive 'The Calling'
and accept it. By accepting the calling of Christ they are, by
that same decision, 'Ordained'. In fact, no other ordination
without this ordination makes a 'Minister of Christ', whatever name
they choose to go by. Now that they are 'God Ordained' they may
join a church organization and be ordained therein also (The Ordination
of Men), or just do the good work within 'The Church of
Christ' - the assembly of the repented and baptised - The
always been two kinds of Ministers/Priest: those who have the calling
and do the good works before or after their baptism, and those who do
not have the calling but pretend to and likewise they pretend to do the
good works, but do nothing of the kind; not in works, nor within their
hearts: for they are the congregation of Satan and occupy their
position for personal gain, be it lust of the flesh, money, power or
all of those. These can only ever have been 'Human/Church
Ordained' - the ordination of men.
to any fables: for example, that your minister shows spiritual
elevation, for this quote, being man-invented, is widely abused by
clergy and marketers. Neither be fooled by men-invented holiness: a
holiness anyone can play. Jesus says: you shall know them by
their fruit (their ways, things they do, what they teach).
Therefore you should examine their words and compare all they do and
say to Christ's. You should examine their way of life and compare
it to the Gospel - so you can recognize their fruit and 'see'
that they are good fruit. Their words and doctrine must be that
of Christ; like a minister of 'Christ' and not as a minister of 'men'.

Gates Of Hell Shall Not Prevail Against It
Through the ages Catholics
and other Nicolaitans tried to defy the above quotation by Jesus, oppressing
and murdering many, deceiving and misleading many more, but they have not
and shall not prevail against 'His Church'.
