Holy Orders
The Sacrament of Holy Orders is the Sacrament of the Priesthood. It is a CALLING, and an AUTHORITY. "Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority.." (LUK 9:1)
 
THE CALLING:
Has to be from God, "And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron." (HEB 5:4)
Jesus called His disciples by the two simple words, "Follow me". Peter and Andrew (Mat 4:19), John and James (Mat 4:21), Matthew (Mat 9:9) and Philip (John 1:43).
 
THE AUTHORITY:
Is also from God, Jesus told His disciples, "As my Father hath sent me, even so send I you." (John 20:21). "He that heareth you heareth me, and he that despithes you despithes me, and he that despithes me despithes Him that sent me." (Luk 10:16). Jesus even instructed His disciples, "And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. (MAR 6:11).
