A Short Priesthood Lesson

There is but one Priesthood of God. Such was Invested in Jehovah, the Firstborn and Only Begotten Son of God. To men on earth God's Priesthood is only available in and through Jehovah who is Jesus Christ and has become known as the Holy Order of the Priesthood of God after the Order of the Son of God. That is the Melchizedek Priesthood for short. There are two grand divisions of that one prieshood of the Son of God. That is the Mechizedek Priesthood in terms of the greater or fulness of the Priesthood and the Aaronic or lesser priesthood, which still fits within the Melchizedek Priesthood but is a selective lesser portion with specific designated assignments and responsibilities of the outward administrations and the Ministering of Angels.

There are also selective 'Orders' of Priesthood specifically designed to certain realms of administrations. Such are as to the Apostolic Order of the Priesthood, which is designed to operate and function with a Church organization of the Priesthood Order as oppossed to the Patriarchal Order of the Priesthood, which may operate independant, but is often subject to the Apostolic Order when both are upon the earth together. Heaven operates according to the Patriarchal Order of the Priesthood without having a Church Order. The Apostolic Order works to assist the patriarchal order of the family in the processes of restoring it when it has been lost as to being the main primary order of administering the Gospel of God.

All of God's Priesthood, its orders, offices and degrees, is given unto men so that men may do the work of God in the name of God and by the power and authority of God. But God's house is a house of order, and there are certain Keys that govern such limits that a man may or may not go in operating according to God's priesthood(s) and powers. Such ordinances and operations of the priesthood within the Gospel settings are governed by keys of who is authorized to perform what ordinances of the priesthood and do what operations and exercise what powers of that priesthood. Such is as the gathering of Israel, the works of the temple and the ordinances thereof, and even as to who fulfills such priesthood assignments of administration and who does not. The priesthood is that by which God operates, governs and controls his kingdom.
