ORDAINED BY GOD
WHAT IS MY CALLING
People called by God are oft times then ordained by God.
does it mean to be ordained by God?
To be ordained is to be
called, ordered or appointed to accomplish something.
important thing to remember is that:
ORDAINS MAN ...
take a look at a few examples in the Bible.
CALLED BY GOD THEN ORDAINED BY GOD
WHAT IS MY CALLING SEARCH FOR ANSWERS
was called by God:
Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh,
that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of
Israel out of Egypt.
was ordained by God, although Samuel anointed
him (poured oil on his head)
1 Samuel 16:12
And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and
withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look
to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is
received his ordaining in a vision from God:
Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am
a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a
people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the
King, the LORD of hosts. Then flew one of the
seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand,
which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath
touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away,
and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the
Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for
us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. And He said, Go,
and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand
not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
Jeremiah was ordained by God:
Then the Word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Before
I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before
thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee,
I ordained thee a Prophet
unto the nations. Then
said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am
a child. But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a
child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send
thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.
you catch the part about Jeremiah being just a child?
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou
ordained strength because of thine enemies,
that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
Ezekiel received his ordination by the Word of the Lord:
The Word of the LORD came expressly unto Ezekiel the
priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans
by the river Chebar; and the hand of the LORD was
there upon him.
was appointed the wisdom to interpret dreams by God:
Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God
for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are His: And
He changeth the times and the seasons: He removeth
kings, and setteth up kings: He giveth wisdom unto the
wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
He revealeth the deep and secret things: He knoweth
what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with
Him. I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my
fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast
made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for
thou hast now made known unto us the king's matter.
read the first few verses of each of the books of the minor
Prophets, you'll find that theWORD OF THE LORD is the means
by which they received their ordination.
Apostles were ordained by Jesus:
He ordained twelve,
that they should be with Him, and that He might send
them forth to preach, And to have power to heal
sicknesses, and to cast out devils ...
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you,
and ordained you,
that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that
your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall
ask of the Father in my name, He may give it you.
Interesting words that Jesus said:
have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you
CALLED BY GOD THEN ORDAINED BY GOD BIBLE STUDY
WHAT IS MY CALLING METHOD OF DISCOVERY
that mean that SOME of those who are supposedly "ordained"
by man, can be missing the ordination of God?
is an incident where a man was casting out devils. He was
not part of the Apostles' posse, but Jesus confirmed that he
was doing God's work. Where do you suppose his ordination
And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting
out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he
followeth not with us. And Jesus said unto him, Forbid
him not: for he that is not against us is for us.
He was apparently
ordained by God, even though the Apostles knew not.
On the other hand ...
Here are seven men that believed
themselves to be appointed or ordained by God...
Yet, they were very wrong:
Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took
upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the
name of the LORD Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus
whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of one
Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.
And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know,
and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom
the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them,
and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of
that house naked and wounded.
These individuals may
have believed that they were ordained by God or called by God to the
administration of removing evil spirits, but it is obvious
that they were not.
ordination came from the Lord:
And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt
thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise,
and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what
thou must do. And the men which journeyed with him
stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.
Paul, an Apostle,
of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God
who raised Him from the dead;)
For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught
it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
said that when you receive the Holy Ghost, you receive power
and you will witness of Him.
CALLED BY GOD THEN ORDAINED BY GOD
WHAT IS MY CALLING FROM GOD
In short ... Ordination comes from the Holy
Spirit, not from man.
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost
is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me
both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria,
and unto the uttermost part of the Earth.
Gentiles were ordained to eternal life by the Lord:
And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and
glorified the Word of the Lord: and as many as were
ordained to eternal life
would man need to ordain these people whom God already said will
be ordained by God?
And what of these the
Bible speaks of?
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God,
I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your
sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young
men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream
dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I
will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they
shall prophesy ...
fact, this story suggests that you can get in trouble if you
expect your ordination to come from man, or that you can
somehow purchase or obtain
the calling of the Holy Spirit in some other way:
Now when the Apostles which were at Jerusalem heard
that Samaria had received the Word of God, they sent
unto them Peter and John: Who, when they were come
down, prayed for them, that they might receive the
Holy Ghost: (For as yet He was fallen upon none of
them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord
Jesus.) Then laid they their hands on them, and they
received the Holy Ghost. And when Simon saw that
through laying on of the Apostles' hands the Holy
Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give
me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he
may receive the Holy Ghost. But Peter said unto him,
Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought
that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou
hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy
heart is not right in the sight of God. Repent
therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if
perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven
thee. For I perceive that thou art in the gall of
bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. Then answered
Simon, and said, Pray ye to the LORD for me, that none
of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.
being ordained doesn't come from God ... It doesn't exist and
will prove to be ineffective.
The power "vested" in a
person, is of no value unless they were called BY GOD and
their words and deeds are inspired by the Holy Spirit.
authority that anyone has MUST come from only ONE, and that
is ... GOD
1 John 2:27
But the anointing which ye have received of Him
abideth in you, and ye need
not that any man teach you: but as
the same anointing teacheth
you of all things, and is truth, and is no
lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide
CALLED BY GOD THEN ORDAINED BY GOD SUMMARY
WHAT IS MY CALLING FROM GOD ANSWERED
Soooooooo, if you feel that you are being called by God to serve Him ... Ask Him !!!
NEVER allow any MAN to deceive you into
believing that you need to be ordained by MAN to be called
by and to be ordained by God.
PEOPLE CALLED BY GOD
... MAY BE ORDAINED BY GOD.
GOD is in control and only HE can determine who is ordained by God.
