But what’s the difference between “odination” and “commissioning”?
Aren’t they just different words meaning the same thing?
And unless one was previously “commissioned,” what gives him the authority to commission others by laying his hands on them?
The occurrences are pretty much what you outlined here (healing, commissioning, etc.)
In regards to commissioning, here’s a partial list of occurences:-
Mr 3:14 - And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,
Joh 15:16 - Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
Ac 1:22 - Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.
Acts 13:1-3 Now in the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers, Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyre’ne, Man’a-en a member of the court of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off.
Ac 14:23 - And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed.
1Ti 2:7 - Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity
1Ti 4:14 - Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you by prophetic utterance when the council of elders laid their hands upon you.
2Ti 1:6 - Hence I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands.
