LEFT TO RIGHT
[Leadership]***The Apostle guides Ministries and saints into the Will of God and the outworking of God’s will. The Apostle helps engender the spirit of Unity flowing out from the Godhead into the body of the church. His anointing will get elders working together in unity.
The Apostle chief passion is to reach people with the call of God. He will father sons, [guide the young people, both physically and spiritually in the Body of Christ, and disciple and encourage these sons, and so raise up leadership, and the five fold ministry in the Church].
His main ministry is to the elders, and the sons he is raising up. For this reason it is important to have the 5-fold ministry in place, to provide balance in the Church for the saints.
Apostleship is a function/responsibility, and has nothing to do with status - only service. God gives the grace and the ability required to those he sends.
[Discerning]*** The nine gifts of the Spirit are: -
1. Word of knowledge.
2. Word of wisdom.
3. Discerning of Spirits.
5. Tongues & the interpretation of tongues.
7. Faith - working of miracles & gift of healing.
8. Paraclete (come alongside) or serving.
9. Order gifts - overseers.
[Knowledge]***An Apostle is only ever described as `special messenger'. [See Apostle Amplification in the Amplified Bible]. There is absolutely no mention of `I will set myself above'!
How do we define special messenger? We look at what the situation was with regard to the Apostles in Jesus time.
The function of special messenger is rooted in years of intimate knowledge, dearly bought experience, and intensive training. Implied in this function is the commission to witness by the Holy Spirit, whose witness it is, by word and sign, to the risen Jesus Christ and His completed Work. The essential quality displayed is the one `did not think that Glory was something to be grasped, but made Himself as nothing `to redeem mankind’.'
These qualities will be evident in the life of the Minister who is now called by the Holy Spirit to be an Apostle in a particular area. He will be called to be, and do these things in that area.
[Teaching]***The Bible Study is under the care of the teacher anointing. The function there is to train and equip the saints; and also to keep the saints focused on the symbolic Brazen Laver and Golden Candlestick.
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]
[Administration]***So the Work of deacons can be found wherever `help' is needed and the following are just some examples: -
*** The management of Church finance.
*** The management of the Church administration, office & records.
*** The management of correspondence and documents.
*** The management of everything connected with food.
*** The management of relief of all kinds, for instance, to flood and fire victims, assistance in needy homes, distribution of relief to the unbelieving poor, the establishment of gainful employment, etc, etc.
[Service]***The purpose of these gifts is to extend the Kingdom of God; by first making the Body healthy, then taking the fight to the enemy, the antichrist here on the earth.
Christ is committed to building the Body of Christ until all who comprise it arrive at the unity of the faith and of the full knowledge of the Son of God, until they attain unto the measure of their stature of the fullness of Christ.
God has many Wworks and in His service are many Mministries. A Mministry is that piece of work that which God has called someone to do. The number of Mministries is very great since God works with people in many and all areas of life.
