KENNETH'S FIRST ACT OF MINISTRY POST-ORDINATION

"The Apostolic Succession"

Inman, South Carolina

 

Newly ordained Rev. Kenneth Kimmons performs his very first marriage of a good friend.  This fellow is stepping out in faith to fulfill his calling and ministry, and we recognize him for it. 

 

Kenneth Kimmons - South Carolina Pastor

I would like to share a little of my experience with being ordained and doing my first task in ministry. I knew for many years that the Father had placed a call on my life, but because the church didnít feel I met their requirements or I felt I just wasnít in the right place at the right time, I hadn't heeded. After being out of fellowship for a while, I started longing to be with good people in a legitimate ministry - to take my part in a good assembly.  Yahweh, being faithful in all things, led me to Vero Essene Yahad.

 

Soon after I went on a trip to Yahad Sukkot, I met a great group of men and women there; we had a great time!  When I got back home and reflected on the experience, I decided the Yahad was something I wanted to take part in. During all of this time, I was taking advantage of the many resources the Vero Essene Yahad has available online.  I learned that the Yahad had an ordination program, so I inquired and found that, if I made it through the program, evven I could become an ordained minister!  So I submitted my application and started the process.

 

One thing that was and is very important to me is that the Yahad believes in the Apostolic Succession, as do I.  Just think about it for a moment: anointed hands being laid by Yahshua upon Ya'aqov, Ya'aqov to Paul - and all the way to me; and that Jackson had tracked the line all the way back for us!  It is a very humbling thing. It both excited and scared me. For me this is one of the most important things I will ever do.

 

After doing some interviews and other things (I don't really remember how long the process took), I opened my email one day and there it was!  The letter said that I had been selected for ordination and that I could serve in the Yahad as a Deacon.  I didn't reply for the next day or two as I did some praying and, I guess you could say, a little soul searching.  It came to me that I had prayed over this for years, and that Yahweh had no doubt put it together through his people.  The green light was on, so I replied and accepted.

 

Kenneth is baptized with pouring by Bishop ben RegeshThe ordination ceremony had been set to take place on Pentecost at a boot camp meeting of the Vero Essene Yahad in Tennessee. I made arrangements to go; It was a four-day weekend.  And about that, when I told my wife she was happy for me and then we realized it was our anniversary on that Friday!  I was thinking "this is going to be tough," but after a couple days or so she came to me and told me to go with no worries because she knew how much it meant to me. I was blessed and relieved; so I made the arrangements to go.

 

When the time came, I arrived on a Thursday and enjoyed hanging out with Jackson (Snyder), Daniel (ben Regesh) and Yochanan (Staten), and that afternoon we headed on in to camp. The whole weekend was just a tremendous blessing.  We had good teachings and lots conversations about many things and views. All the while I had a nervous expectation of the upcoming Sunday. But when Pentecost arrived, I was overjoyed and excited about what was to happen!  As the ceremony ensued, Debbie (Wilson) and I were permitted to serve our brethren communion - and then it was time!

 

As we were standing up there, and when Daniel and Jackson laid hands on us(I will never forget), a smooth steady wind started and continued until they were finished. I thought, "Is this the Ruach of Yahweh? and He related to me that it most certainly was.  After, we had a baptism and we praised Yah, thanking Him (and our master Yahshua) for their great blessings.

 

Rev. Kenneth Kimmons officiates the marriage of Billy and Shiela in South CarolinaFour or five weeks after arriving home, I got a call early one morning.  It was Billy (a long-time friend of mine), and he said, "Didn't you get ordained?  I said YES, I did!  He said, "I want you to marry Sheila and I tonight.  I told him to let me check on a few things and I would get back with him.  So I got in touch with Jackson and asked him a few things like a marriage service format I could use. He did, and so I got back in touch with Billy, and he said, "Good!  Be there at 7:30 pm!"  So when time came we talked a few minutes as we reviewed over some spiritual things and a few edits here and there.  We were ready to start!

 

As I was standing there before we started I was thinking, "Wow, I am about to perform a sacred ceremony before Yahweh!"  As we concluded, I was a bit relieved, as this was the first wedding I had overseen; and it all went well. I am so thankful For Yahweh bringing me to this place in life and to the Vero Essene Yahad / New Earth Restoration Ministries for ordaining me; and a special thanks to Jackson, Daniel, Yochanan and Allyson (Gary)!  You guys are so encouraging, and you're the best!

 

Sincerely,

Kenneth Kimmons

 

Apostolic Succession is the method whereby the ministry of the Christian Church is held to be derived from the apostles by a continuous succession, which has usually been associated with a claim that the succession is through a series of bishops. This series was seen originally as that of the bishops of a particular see founded by one or more of the apostles. According to historian Justo L. GonzŠlez, apostolic succession is generally understood today as meaning a series of bishops, regardless of see, each consecrated by other bishops, themselves consecrated similarly in a succession going back to the apostles. Yahad ministers trace back through Paul to James the Just.

 

Deacons (διακανοι, servants in ministry) likewise must be men of dignity, not double-tongued, or addicted to much wine or fond of sordid gain, but holding to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. These must also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach.  Women (ministers) must likewise be dignified, not malicious gossips, but temperate, faithful in all things. Deacons must be husbands of only one wife, and good managers of their children and their own households. For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a high standing and great confidence in the faith that is in Messiah Yahshua. (1 Timothy 3:8-13.)
