GIFTING --- AMENDED MORRIS SHEATS QUESTIONNAIRE

PROPHET 8

PROPHET

[Inspired preacher and expounder]

CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY WITH INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM/FUNCTION

INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM OF FUNCTION WITH CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY

The prophet-

Meets spiritual needs

Meets personal needs

Meets financial and material needs

The prophet Interprets the divine will and purpose, with inspired revelation, through inspired preaching and expounding, as well as inspired teaching.

However, there is a clear difference between inspired teachings by revelation in the spur of the moment; as compared to the teacher's gift of `Clarifying’ truth and giving it structure and order. The prophet has the motivation to reveal unrighteous motives or actions by presenting God's truth.

Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: Send this message to…………

Jeremiah 28:30,31a.

The gift of prophecy is available to every member of the body. The `office' of the prophet on the other hand, is one which enables the prophet to speak for, or as moved by the Holy Spirit, having received miraculous power.

The prophet speaks for God as a man who has the power of the Holy Spirit in ordinary life. The prophet has a need to express his message verbally; a need to speak out. He has a directness, frankness and persuasiveness in speaking, and needs a dependence on scriptural truth to do this effectively.

In everything they need to set an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.

[Titus 2:7,8]

Meets mental needs

*** Clarifying truth for the purposes of indoctrination in God's Word and His commandments. Believers can mistake impartation of information as ‘teaching’. Unless truth is being ‘clarified’, no teaching is taking place.

They have the ability to impart knowledge, and lead others into revealed truth. Teachers are indispensable to the Body of Christ, as they provide the ammunition with which the other ministries can wage their war against evil with greater success. [Acts 18:27] Theirs is very much a ministry of `watering' rather than `planting'. [1 Corinthians 3:6]

Has the motivation to search out and validate truth that has been presented.

Teachers love to read and study and place great emphasis on the accuracy of facts and words. Described as being `logios' which means `given to words, learned or eloquent' [Acts 18:24] They enjoy research, and get more joy in doing the research than in giving the material; and use it to validate truth and to test the material that is being presented. The teachers’ normal position is with his nose in a book. The calling on his life will cause him to study 80% of his time. They would rather be in their books than with people in their free time.

They see empty heads to fill, and love presenting truth in a systemic way; and will avoid using non-biblical illustrations, and will resist scripture taken out of context.

People will remember the teaching of a teacher, and even if they don't like it; it will be written on the persons heart and mind by the Holy Spirit. Teachers have the gift of grace that helps its possessors to understand the teaching of God's Word, and to discern His purposes, and thus this equips them to instruct His people in doctrinal matters. They will teach sound doctrine that will release the working of God, when people act on what they hear. Teachers are able to help as they are able to see inaccuracies of statements, and conclusions that have been made; but they must not appear to lack warmth and feeling when they speak.

They will tend to turn the Church into a school. If not balanced by the other ministries; their Church will sooner or later turn into fat cats steeped in the Word, depending on the skill of the teacher. This could take between 3-7 yrs. When this happens, this is a crisis situation, as peoples other needs are not being met. They will leave, and the teacher will not understand why - he will feel rejection and guilt; and this can all be avoided by the having the balance of the 5-fold ministry.

1 Corinthians 12:8, Colossians 3:16, Matthew 28:20, 1 Timothy 3:2, 2 Timothy 2:2, 24, Luke 4:31,32, Matthew 5:2.


EXHORTER 1

OVERSEER 9

ELDERS /OVERSEERS /BISHOPS

[A function in the local church/cell groups]

The involvements of the elders with the saints should be on the basis of –

`The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honour, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching. For the Scripture says, "Do not muzzle the ox while it is treading out the corn," and "The worker deserves his wages."

Do not entertain an accusation against an elder unless it is brought by two or three witnesses

1 Timothy 5:17, 18.

Elders in turn are appointed `with prayer and fasting' and `committing them to the Lord' by the apostles as they move around establishing local churches in the various communities. There is no sense in which the apostles `control' the elders or the local churches. Rather, it is on a basis of

`strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith.'

Acts 14:22, 23.

`An Elder must be blameless, the husband of but one wife, a man whose children are not open to the charge of being wild and disobedient. Since an overseer is entrusted with God's work, he must be blameless - not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given too much wine, not violent, not pursuing dis-honest gain. Rather he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.'

Titus 1:6 - 9.

Elders are `overseers' in the sense of taking care of the believers.

...`They keep watch over you as men who must give an account.

Hebrews 13:17.
