On Holy Orders
The concept of a "Holy Order" is not generally well known in Christendom and thus the presence of one in the New Covenant Church of God has not always been readily understood. The word "Order" is another word for a church, an organised congregation, a covenant, a system, a school, or a system of discipline. The New Covenant is sometimes called the "Order of Melchizedek" (Heb.5:6,10; 6:20; 7:11,17, NIV) which is a Hebrew concept. The earth is passing through various "orders" of which the present one will be known as the "Old Order" (being presently called the "New Order" -- Heb.9:10, NIV) and the Millennial one as the "New Order" (Rev.21:4), establishing that basically there will be three orders: The pre-Christian, the Christian pre-Millennial (today), and the Christian Millennial. The Holy Order is concerned with progressive spiritual renewal through one system or order to another, the greatest renewal and change taking place under the mandate of Jesus Christ at the meridian of time. The New Covenant Church of God is preparing for the Millennial Order. This revelation, which has been modified (960801) in places to reflect changes since 1988 (e.g. the Holy Order, formerly known as the Chevra B'Qor, is now known as the Chavurah Bekorot) explains the relationship between the former Holy Order and the present one [Gausel, Stavanger, Norway].
1. Q. What is the relationship between the Holy Order in the days of Abraham and the Holy Order (Chavurat Bekortot) today?
2. A. Behold, the ordinances of the Holy Order in the days of Enoch, Melchizedek and Abraham were given, even as it is written, that the people might look forward to the coming of the Son of God;
3. For this Holy Order was a type or shadow of Christ's New Covenant, and this that they might look forward to Him for a remission of their sins, which thing could not be before the work of the Cross, that they might enter into the rest of the Lord.
4. And behold, these men were justified on account of their exceeding great faith and because they preached the Word and did cause multitudes to repent.
4. Therefore, verily, verily, I say unto you: Do ye the works of Abraham and ye shall in no wise be disappointed (Jn.8:39). Amen.
