The words ordain/ordained/ordination are used four times in the NKJ translation of the New Testament and none of them have anything to do with bestowing rank or offices on the members of the Church. In fact, in the NKJ, the term "ordination" is never used at all. What "ordained" is used for though is to describe the choice God made for the judgement of the world. Different translations often use different words, but the answer lies in the continuity of the record of scripture rather than in this word or that.

Inspiration

Matthew 11:28-30 NLT

Then Jesus said, "come unto me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light."
