 INTRODUCTION

I am writing this message for all honest seeking men and women of God who feel the call to serve the Lord Jesus Christ as a Minister. Who are those I am referring to as Ministers? For the purpose of this work I am using the word Minister to refer to all those who serve as instruments to carry out the mandate of the great commission in any sector of life; be it pastors, Apostles, Teachers, lay leaders, prophets, evangelist, Bishops, Overseers, cleaners in the house of God, doctors , lawyers ,etc. The term for me refers to anyone serving in any capacity to carry out the mandate of God. I intend for us to examine this office that is one of the most abused on earth today. We will scrutinize this office from every possible aspect we can visualize; advantages and disadvantages, both the true and false, the call, the qualifications, the charge, duties, what it means to be hospitable to Minister, their ordination, etc . In the end it is my purpose that this document serves as a lamp to direct, correct pass mistakes, and help us distinguish between the true from false Minister. It should also serve as a guide to help the local congregation improve their outlook at their Minister, not because of Material gains and influence but because of their call. Because I wish to get the best results and facts regarding this topic I will rely heavily on the Holy Bible, Discussions and writings from Men and Women of God who have written on the topic before or answer a inquiry from me. I know that many of those critics who love to avoid facts and make excuses will want to see text I took from the Old Testament that refers to Priest or Ministers of those days out of context; by by saying that there are no more sacrifices, so the rules have change. Before the thought even enters your head, let me cut it off. Yes the sacrifice is paid and done with, but what about the place of worship? What about the moral standards laid down for God anointed ones? What about the congregation and the rules that were lain down for them and the relationship between the two? Oh so now the price has been paid so should we do away with the Old Testament? These lame excuses are what most false and corrupt Ministers use to abuse the honorable office that God has given them. Lastly I will be using real life examples from our experiences in the church of Today. This Document does not mean to criticize any known individuals, but a corrupt system that has sprang up because of the quest for power, wealth and materialism; using the precious Name of Jesus Christ to foster their evil desires. May The Most High God open our eyes to see the Wolves/goats from the Sheep. THE MINISTER IS CALLED & SEPARATED FOR THE TASK BY GOD HIMSELF The Minister of Jesus Christ is called to the task and separated from the flock to care for the message of God and any instrument used to carry out that noble task. (Exodus 28:1; Numbers 3:5-12, 1Sam.3:4-10) As we can see from Chr.23:13; Exodus 28:1 the Minister, Ministers to God. (This is his/her first priority). The fact that the Minister is call by God makes the office a very Holy one that has to be guarded with care, for it is an office that has the highest mandate on earth as regard the Kingdom of God. Special powers are assigned to this office to bind and loose and to be a vessel or pathway for many things to and from the Kingdom of God. Its jurisdiction extends to the ends of the earth. The Mandate states: All authority in Heaven and on the earth has been given to me; Therefore go….(Matt.29:18-20). Authority from Heaven lies in the hands of the true Minister. That is why the vessel that handles such authority has to be selected by God, called and set apart for the task. The task is not easy and has a lot of rules the concerns both heaven and earth that has to be obeyed by all cost. That is the one reason that not any one can be a Minister. The next thing we should consider that Ministers are not only pastors but everyone who is called and set apart to minister to God as we can see from Numbers 3: 5-12. Those who serve in the house of God are also Ministers of God, and as we can see from 1Sam. 3:4-10 that age is not a major factor for God in choosing His Ministers. Character and the willingness to stick to the principles lay down for Ministering to God makes one a worthy vessel for God to use to reveal His directives to man. There are those who carry the title but have defiled themselves so much that God can not work through them again. Yet in the eyes of men they are thought to be worthy vessels. Those big titles like: Pope; Arch Bishop, Bishop, His Excellency, ETC. certainly does not qualifies one as a Minister of God. The long white garment or so-called Ministerial robes and neck brands does not make one a Minister of God. Even if you have ten PHDs in Theology, it does not qualify you to be a Minister of God. The number one thing that we must get to the back of our heads is that God chooses and separates those He called as Ministers. Quite contrary to the concept of today that the Minister top priority is to minister to his/her congregation, to act as Lord and Master over the members etc., we see here that his/her first priority is to Minister to God. In many churches, the idea is to promote their own Ministry rather than Jesus. Oh Yes, they do use the name of Jesus but to what end. To sell their books and videos, to bless passports and envelopes for those who can give money, to raise money for non existent projects( usually from areas that really needs it but will never receive it) or to claim to be healing in the name or Jesus but in fact using tricks or black arts to convince the people. This is because they do not understand the unique purpose of their call. The unique purpose of the Call is to Minister to God. Those who do not give God first place, own holy spirit is of the world and not the Holy Spirit that guides us in true worship. That is why it is necessary to know what qualifies one to serve as a Minister of the God, ordained to carry out the worthy mandate of spreading the True Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world. The Minister is called to take the message of truth as directed from God Himself to any part of the earth that God chooses. God has a particular mission for those He called and set apart. Each person mission might not be the same and might be carry out through different means but for the same purpose, which is to Minister to God and relay His will to mankind. If we study Jonah1:1-2; 3:1-2) we will find a very important lesson and if we study the book carefully we will discover that the purpose of God is not diverted by men, not even His Ministers. Most times in today’s world we see the evil spirit of Satan which was used to convince Jonah to not carry out God message as He wanted it, but to think He could run from God and change His purpose. Isn’t that very interesting? Don’t we see it everyday through the different mediums we use to reach out with what is taught today? Little do they know that all they gather that was not ordained by God will be their own rough sea tomorrow that they will have to be thrown into and countless members of their generations will have to pay for their evil? But like it or not the purpose of God can never be change by man. If it is the mission that God called you to carry out it will be accomplish before your demise. God call His Ministers long before they know it, most times even before birth (Jer. 1:5) But what God sees in a person and call them to minister to Him does not always have to fit the category of men. He calls the worse or crumbs of society at times but they do not remain crumbs for He sanctifies them and make them new creatures. Let’ take Jesus Christ of Nazareth calling of His disciples who would minister to Him and remain on earth to carry out the task after He had left the earth. Those He called were not of human choosing but for divine purpose. He knew Judas before he was called and that His death would come through him but yet he call him. Matthew 9:9 is an example of a man called from the crumbs of life to minister to Christ. What do the following verses tell you about the call of a Minister? I leave it to you dear reader to analyze them for yourself. “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….” (Isa. 6:8-9). “Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an Apostle, separated unto the Gospel of God.” (Rom.1:1) “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written, how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! (Rom. 10:14). “For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to Glory of; for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! For if I do this thing willingly I have a reward, but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me. What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel. For though I made be free from all men, yet have I made myself a servant unto all, that I might gain the more. (1Cor.9:16-19) We could go on and on but I think we have established enough that the true Minister of God is called by God Himself and not some trump up greedy man or woman who is out for self glorification or get rich quick scheme in the name of been a Minister of God. Today there are millions of Ministers claiming to have been called and set apart by God for the task of Ministering. We see some seemingly Spirit Filled Churches or Men and Women of God. Oh yes, Certainly the building looks wonderful, the members are rich or well off as you can see from their dressing or the outside parking lot, yet it is highly possible that such a church lacks a Minister called and set apart by God. Some preach fiery sermons and the people are move for a while by the logic . But when you dig a little deeper into the system and examine the lives of the church you will discover that the entire church needs to be saved. They are lost and heading straight for hell. That is because the Head is not a qualify Minister, Called and separated for the task. There are special laid down principles and qualities from God for those He called for the task of Ministering. CHARACTER AND QUALIFICATIONS OF A TRUE MINISTER OF JESUS CHRIST What can we say are the true characteristics and qualifications of those who are called by God and set apart as His Ministers? This is a very important question for many reasons; the least of them being a way to distinguish between the true and false Ministers. Jesus Himself classified these two groups ‘goats and sheep’. Yes they both have horns, wooly hair, hooves, and looks similar from a distance. But upon closer look we can se the difference. It is these difference that Christ emphasis. In fact for Him the difference was so great that He had to put them on His left and right hands (even in the illustration) to ensure that they were not mistaken. He warns about wolves in sheep clothing but I never heard about wolves in goats clothing. That makes me to assume that goats and wolves are similar here. The Minister Character is the light by which he/she is seen and rated by his/her flocks and outsiders. Again it is necessary to examine a few verses from the bible relating to the character and Qualifications of the Minister. A few things stick out that we will meet over and over again when it comes to been set apart for such a task. . The Minister needs to be clean in thoughts words and deeds as much as humanly possible and the Holy Spirit will do the rest. She/he needs to be a clean and pure vessel that God can use to glorify Himself before the congregation. As we can see the Minister needs to be clean not for himself/herself but for God purpose to be revealed through them. The Minister therefore becomes the mouth piece of God, reminding them about the pass, correcting their today and predicting or prophesying about the future. Before one can be qualify as a Minister of God; He/ She must be sanctified by God. It is only after He/she is cleansed that God decides to send them to the task that they are called to perform. The Minister must fearlessly carry out the word of God regardless of the consequences. They are responsible for the flocks that God gives them and He will judge Ministers according to their work in the end. “Then Moses said unto Aaron, ‘This is it that the Lord spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come near me and before all people I will be glorified.’ “ (Lev10:3). “ They shall be Holy unto their God, and not profane the name of their God: for the offerings of the Lord made by fire, and the bread of their God, they do offer; therefore they shall be holy. (Lev. 21:6; 2Chr.29:11). “ Seemeth it but a small thing unto you, that the Lord God of Israel hath separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near unto Himself to do the service of the Tabernacle of the Lord, and to stand before the congregation to Minister before them? (Num. 16:9). “Now therefore stand still, that I may reason with you before the Lord of all the righteous acts of the Lord, which He did to you and to your fathers.” (Sam12:17) “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 host. Then flew one of the seraphim’s unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken from 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 a voice of the Lord, saying, whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I ; send me. (Isa6:5-8) “Be ye clean, that bears the vessels of the Lord. (Isa 52:11} “But the Lord Said unto me, Say not, I am a child; for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatever I command thee thou shalt speak. Be not afraid of their faces; for I am with thee to deliver thee saith the Lord”. {Jer. 1:7-8). ” Thus saith the Lord God unto the Shepherds; Woe be to the Shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flocks”?( Ezek 34:2) Before going into the details about the character and qualifications I wish to discuss under this topic I wish to take a view of a few works I have read and admired (but that does not mean that I fully agreed with all that is written there). I like to start with a man I respect and love but have never met. We both are members of Children of Azusa Street ( a site for Mature Christians and Servants of the Most High God.) He contributes a lot in writing and I have found most of his writings very interesting, educative and worth analyzing. His Name is Pastor James Ellis of Ohio in the United States of America. He was quoting a Minister of God He admired much and wrote: “This is a list compiled by Rev. Gerri Janeway. She has been a minister for over 30 years serving as an evangelist, teacher, pastor, Bishop over the State of Arizona in the organization with which she is affiliated, and other offices but mostly as a prayer warrior. To her friends she is known as Sis.Gerri but to God and to the forces of Hell she is known as The Kneebound Warrior. Her motto is “How can I stand before men on God’s behalf, if I have not stood before God on man’s behalf?” 25 Things Ministers Should Ask Themselves 1. Do I have a personal and regular prayer life? (Acts 3:1; Lk 5:15,16) 2. Am I systematic and faithful in Bible reading and study? (Ezr 7:10;Lk 4:16,17) 3. Are my thoughts pure? (Prov 4:23; Mt 15:18,19) 4. Does my speech glorify God at all times? (Js 3:1,2; Eph 5:4) 5. Do I possess self-control? (Prov 23:1,2; 1 Cor 6:12,13) 6. Am I satisfied with a simple lifestyle? (1 Tim 6:6-8; Phil 4:11-13) 7. Am I faithful to my spouse? (1 Tim 3:2a; Rom 2:22a) 8. AmI a responsible and godly parent? (1 Tim 3:4,5; Dt 6:6,7) 9. Am I obedient to civil laws? (Mt 17:25-27; Rom 13:1-7) 10. Am I transparent in money matters? (2 Cor 8:20-22; Acts 20:33,34) 11. Do I love the sheep as Christ does? (2 Cor 12:15; 1 Cor 13:1,2) 12. Am I committed to training others? (Lk 11:1,2; Eph 4:11-13) 13. Am I compassionate towards the poor? (Gal 2:9,10; Acts 20:35) 14. Am I impartial without favortism? (1 Tim 5:21; 2 Chr 19:5-9) 15. Am I dead to “caste”ism, religion, nepotism, etc. (Col 3:9-11; Rev 7:9,10) 16. Am I enthusiastic in evangelism and missions? (Jn 10:16; Mt 9:36-38) 17. Am I true in reporting ? (Rom 15:18; Mk 6:5) 18. Am I accountable? (2 Cor 8:18,19,22-24; Acts 15:22) 19. Am I open to correction? (Gal 2:11-14; Eccl 4:13) 20. Am I meek and quiet when spoken against? (1 Pet 2:21-23; Mt 5:11,12) 21. Am I respectful of the reputation of others? (Prov 17:9; 2 Sam 1:19,20) 22. Am I friendly and kind to my coworkers? (Jn 15:15; Acts 20:17,36-38) 23. Am I cooperative with other ministries? (Lk 5:5-7; Gal 2:7-9) 24. Do I give my all; not afraid of hard work? (1 Cor 15:10,58; Jn 9:4,5) 25. Am I practicing self-denial? (Lk 9:23; Jn 3:30) After reading over what Pastor Ellis wrote; couple with personal experience and the Word of God; I drew out the following points about the character and things that qualifies one for real True Ministry as mandated by Jesus Christ: As Ministers it is true that we need a regular prayer life because we are given charge our many things. Christ spend most of His nights after a hard working day seeking the face of God before every next move. Even after a whole night of prayer He still prayed before any physical action. Communication with God is a must for every Minister. But today it is one excuse after another. The Minister is too busy preparing his recording to pray for the people, too busy counting money, too busy fighting for members to increase his offering, too busy writing books or sermons. Because of that he/she spends about fifteen minutes in a hasty prayer and leave for other things. After all he believes his/her prayer warriors are praying for him and the people. But the question is: Did Jesus wait for others to pray for Him because He was too busy? Ministers are to bear the iniquities of the people to the Lord God. The fact of the matter is the Minister today does not know the people enough to bear their inequities. He only remembers the names of the contributors and not the poor and lost. Many are too busy to visit the ghettoes with drugs addicts and prostitutes, the orphans, widows but raise millions in their names. In fact, there is much hatred in the church these days than out of it. Ministers are compete for material things so much that fights of various sorts on different fronts in the church are fought every day and night. Great visions are split because of these in house fights and the task of praying for the iniquities of the people are forgotten in this battle for fame, supremacy, money and worldly influence and power. Paul wrote “Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially they who honor in the word and doctrine. I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality”.(1Tim.5:17). But how many of our churches and their leaders can stand up to claim this honor? Ministers are to keep charge over everything that concerns the worshippers and materials/instruments used to worshipped. The Ministers are in charge of every inch of the house of God yet today the home of the Minister is dress 100 percent more decently than the house of God. (Num.18:1-7) Most of the things in the various Churches are not consecrated to the Lord again. In fact I personally think that many are not worthy of our God. Ministers raise huge amount of money in the name of the house of God but in fact divide said money with God and buy and place things in the church of sub standard value; things that they would never allow in their own homes. I have attended services in churches before where the house of God is leaking (even on the altar) and the Minister has huge offerings but the money goes to personal usage. The drum skins are worthless, the choir has no gowns, the Altar is falling apart, benches are broken, and yet so much money is raise and diverted to personal usage. It is the duties of the Ministers to bring the Leaders of the people to the Lord. God give charge to them to put some honor and ask counsel for him/her from the Lord. The Minister is authorized to lay hands on the leader and delivered His/ her charge of office.( Num.27:18) The Minister have to always be in constant contact with God, because at any time the Lord God can send him/her to delivered a message(Ezek.3.4). The fact of the matter is that the Ministers are now unable to criticize the Leaders for fear that if they leave the church, their treasury will run dry. Criminals are now on the Elders board because of their wealth, so it is impossible to counsel the Leaders. Because of these negative characteristics and corruption in the house the self esteem of the Ministers of God has been lower. The Leaders do as they wish and use them as reference for their sinful ways. Study and prayers is always a key to understanding, knowledge and wisdom. And you must know that the three are different from one another. They are among the Minister’s most valuable tools. It helps to prepare one’s heart and clothe in Salvation. For according to the bible; “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise”. (Ezra 7: 10 ; Chr6:41; Prov. 11: 30).Remember that the Minister is not of this world . Their mandate is of a world foreign to this but that has authority over this world. That is why the Minister must study very hard to understand the things of the Kingdom that send him. Jesus Christ call this been sanctify through the Truth of the WORD. (Jn17:16-17. But instead of studying about how to advance the Kingdom of God, many are studying how to make better recordings the will sell fast( usually the ones with messages that suit the people way of life; backing their evil). Day after day they are studying strategies on how to enrich themselves instead of preaching and teaching the Truth. The Minister is to study because the Word of God is his/her most powerful tool. The Bible says “The Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedge sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”.(Heb.4:12) “ And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness. Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my Words that I shall speak unto thee receive in thine heart and hear with thine ears”. *(Ezek.3:3;10). Are there any other ways to stress the importance of studying and mastering the word of God? I do not know a better way than from the mouth of God Himself. 1Timothy 6:11 says ; Ministers should flee evil ways and with pure thoughts follow after, righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience and meekness. V.13-14” I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Jesus Christ, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession; that thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ. V20-21 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: which some professing has erred concerning the faith. The stress here is that a Minister should be one with pure thoughts regarding not only his/her fellowmen/women but also doctrines and other things concerning the work of God. Yet we have heard of Ministers swearing and fighting on the stage they preach from. Many Ministers of Today are after things of the world/ material gain; often to the determent of the flocks. Many create false programs and projects only to enrich themselves. Fornication and adultery are high among church workers (Choirs, ushers youth groups, etc) Yes 1Tim.3:1-15states in clear terms nearly all that the Minister needs to fulfilled the noble task that is given him or her. I was conducting a research on Ministers Children in Africa and found that 99 percent of them turn to drugs, sex, and crime and most times come out very useless to the church or society. It is so sad but it is actually the fact that the Minister most times neglects the duties of the home, which should be the foundation for Miniseries worldwide. It is a rare Minister of today that care for the work of God or the Flocks more than himself/herself. They must have the best homes, cars, children in the most expensive schools, and a fat salary (in some cases no salary is cut out). The ware fare of their families are second or third priority. If a rich or influencial member is sick or imprison, the Minister hastening there but if it is a poor member well the matter can wait until Sunday. The congregation will than take a special offering (and most times only half reaches the poor) to help the cause. In fact in my part of the world it appears as if the act of Baptism is non existence. Some churches have not baptized a single member in the past five years. Yet they have more that a hundred lost souls every service. The sore interest is offering and tithes. Criminals are now holding key positions in our services as ministers in today’s world because they can provide the church with some money. But the bible says Ministers are not to be Ministered to but to Ministered, if we are true examples of Jesus Christ Matt.20:25-28; Lk. 22:27; Jn 13:14,15. Personally I admired these words of Jesus when he said( Ye call me Master and Lord and ye say well; for so I am. If I then your Lord and Master , have washed your feet,; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his Lord neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them. ( Jn 13:13-17) If we analyze this statement carefully we will note that Christ wish is that His Ministers serve, care for their flock.” Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? Thou that preaches a man should not steal? Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery? Thou that ahorrest idols, does thou commit sacriledge? Thou that makest thy boast of the Law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God? (Rom2:21-23). The Minister is warn about difficult times and persecution for the truth. Ministers are to be bold and outspoken but only speaking what the Holy Spirit commands. That is one of the reasons the Vessel being selected by God to Minister must be clean, honest , and of good reputation with both men and God and already fill of the Holy Ghost and wisdom.( Jn 15:20; Acts 6:3). In today’s world Ministers are fighting over members that can bring in cash to support their ministries; but the bible says the contrary is the true. We could go on and on but we must stop here and conclude this section. We can not over emphasize the importance of the characteristics of the Minister, which qualifies him/her for the duty of taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ/Word of God to the ends of the earth. That is why I want to use these verses from the Bible to close this section and summarize what I have been saying.” For every High Priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins: who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity. And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins. For when for a time you ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need for milk, and not of strong meat. For everyone that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness; for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” (Heb 5:1-3;12-14) “So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the Word of God; whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation. Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein. Obey them that have the ruleover you, and submit yourselves; for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you. “(Hebs 13:6,7,9,17). “My brethren, be not of many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation. Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. For where envying and.. [18:56:03] Bishop Steven Maxwell Alexander J. K. Liberty Sr.: and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, than peaceable, gentle and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.” ( Jas3:1, 13, 16, 17, 18.) “As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ.” (1Pet.4:10-11). In Conclusion, it is necessary to note that the Minister is a very special person that is called by God, sanctified and set aside for a Holy Mission. Even through he/she is guided by the Holy Spirit, He/she is governed by a set of laid down rules. These rules are mandatory if there must be an open link between the two Kingdoms (Heaven and Earth) where he has a mandate to loose and bind, to teach and preach and to Minister to God and his/her fellow humans. That is why the Minister is Charge by God Himself. TO BE CONTINUED
