Misters/Priest are first
and formost 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 christians.
have always been
two kinds of Ministers/Priest: those who have the calling and do the
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
Ordained' - the ordination of men.
Don't listen to any fables:
for example, that your minister shows spiritual elevation, for this quote, being man-invented, is widely abused by
clergy and marketeers. 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). Therefor you should examine their words and compare all
they do and say to Christ's. You should examine their way of life
it to the Gospel - so you can recognize their fruit and 'see'
they are a 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'.
