Greetings Brother’s and Sister’s, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Our Lord Savor!!!
In Ephesians 5:26-27, it say’s,
“26) That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27) That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.”. This set of Scripture’s in Ephesians is a Plural Meaning, both to a Husband’s and Wives, also to Jesus and The Church.
The pluralism, the Husband, is to and must Love his wife in every aspect of Life, including teaching her the Ways of God. It is His Responsibility that God the Father Ordained since the beginning. Jesus, gave us the Comforter, the Holy Spirit to Teach Us God’s Way’s. Now, so you will not be confused. Jesus, is our Husband and as our Husband is Teaching us through the Holy Spirit, but it is still Jesus Teaching us. Jesus, must present us, The Church, spotless to the Father and prepare us for The Father. There are those who will not learn, rather by choice or not able to. We, who are Truly Called into an Office, (Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastors and Teachers), will be held to the highest Accountability for directing the Body. Jesus Ordained these Office’s to bring The Church into Maturity, to Prepare Us for The Kingdom of Heaven.
Ephesians 4:10 – 14 “10) He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things. 11) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12) For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13) Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14) That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;…”
There is a Major issue in the Body of Jesus and when I say “Body of Jesus”, I mean across all the Denomination’s, any one who Name’s Jesus as Lord and Savor. One of the Issues is this, when Jesus Ordained the Office’s, He did it for a reason. Each Office has it’s own role and purpose. Let me explain each in part and by no means is this a full explanation.
Apostle’s – they are one of two Major Offices. The Apostle make’s sure of the Word that is being, Spoken, Written, Seen and Taught, that it lines up with Jesus, The Father, The Holy Spirit and the Order of The Kingdom of Heaven. He, is like the police, judge and court.
Prophet’s – they are the second of the two Major Offices. The Prophet gives Direction and at time’s, through the Holy Spirit, Pass Judgment. This can be on so many levels, World, Nations, Countries, States, County’s, City’s, Churches and Individual’s.
In Ephesians 2:19 – 21, it say’s, “19) Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20) And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21) In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:”
Evangelist – preach the Gospel of Jesus, that The Kingdom of God is at hand. This, is all they do.
Pastor’s – minster the Word. They Protect the Sheep, they make sure the Sheep are fed.
Teachers – give meaning to The Word of God, bringing Understanding so that you might Live The Word of God.
My reason for go through the Call’s, is this…we are to learn about God in every aspect that He allows us to. If Jesus, set forth in the Body the Apostle’s, Prophet’s Evangelist, Pastor’s and Teacher’s as Offices, do you think they just might be important to Him! I have fought the main part of my walk trying to re-establish the Order that Jesus has set and in most cases have failed due to Man and Satan, but, I will keep fighting none the less!
What do you think it would be like if you lost one or more of your limbs? Do you think you would function to your full capacity or would you now be handicapped? As I have said earlier, most Churches have gotten rid of the first two offices, have renamed the Apostle to be like the Evangelist, have put Pastor’s in charge where they are not, have put warm body, blood flowing people in as Teacher’s who are not qualified to teach, have selected the Young over the Old, and have put a bandage on what the real issues are, that have now been infected with the World.
I realize Studying To Change is only a fraction to the cure, but I must keep doing the Work that Jesus gave to me 30+ yrs ago.
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed In Jesus!!!
