WHAT IS MY MINISTRY?


Ephesians 4:11-16King James Version (KJV)

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 fullness 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;
15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.


 I Timothy 4:14 (NIV)

Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you.



2 Timothy 1:6-7New King James Version (NKJV)

Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
Note that Ministry gifts are imparted by the laying of hands and not by some oil. The only time oils are needed are when you are sick!! (James 5:14, Mark 6:13). You might want to ask, but Aaron was anointed with oil (Exodus 30:30, 40:13 ). The reason was to consecrate them.
Exodus 30:31 "You shall speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'This shall be a holy anointing oil to Me throughout your generations.
Their generations! See that?
Leviticus 8:12 Then he poured some of the anointing oil on Aaron's head and anointed him, to consecrate him.
You are consecrated by His blood(You need not anymore oil). You will notice in Leviticus 8:30 - Moses made use of not just oil alone., he made use of some blood on the altar also.
Take note of this:
1 John 2:27 As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.

The anointing is never the oil and is never in the oil.

Acts 10:38 "You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

 

THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY

1.Apostle - Governs
2. Prophet - Guides
3. Evangelist - Gathers
4. Pastor - Guards
5. Teacher - Grounds
The Church NOW and Today needs the full function and operation of the full fivefold in accordance with the WORD. May We identify and encourage those whom God has given the grace and anointing for such.

THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY 

The Apostle - Leads
The Prophet - Speaks
The Teacher - Equips
The Evangelist - Proclaims
The Pastor - Cares
We need all for our time like never before; divinely called, appointed and anointed fivefold Ministers.

THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY 

1. Apostle - Visionary Strategist
2. Prophet - Spiritual Advisor
3. Teacher - Logical Thinker/Implementer
4. Evangelist - Persuasive Communicator
5. Pastor - Human Resource Counselor
 The Gifts and ministry of the Holy Spirit work in manifold ways and is not limited to a one approach. The Bible talks about the seven spirits yet refers to one and the same Spirit manifesting His completeness in different ways.
Some are open to revelation but not learning or teaching. The humble is open to learning, education and revelation.

THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY 

Apostle - Long-Sight
Prophet - Foresight
Evangelist - Hindsight
Teacher - Insight
Pastor - Oversight
VISION means to SEE. All those in the fivefold ministry must have a vision or see something in the area of their ministries. Spiritual sight is the ability to see by revelation what needs to be done when and how. We all need vision to do His work effectively.

THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY 

Apostle - Mission
Prophet - Vision
Evangelist - Commission
Pastor - Compassion
Teacher - Passion
 We need a sense of Mission and Commission. We need a sense of vision and passion with Compassion to do effectively the task before us.

Hope this helps?

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations. 

In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

THE MYSTERY OF HIS PRESENCE

Have you ever wondered why God will not honour the words of certain men and honour that of another?
Have you ever thought about something  like this or experienced this:
The Bible says .....You shall lay your hands upon the sick and they will recover(Mark 16:18b). You laid your hands and instead of a recovery, you found a discovery – that the man is not healed and the sickness/disease has back-fired. This can be painful......  until a young man comes and at the sound of his voice, the infirmity flees.
Has this ever bothered you?
Or that a man speaks into existence instantly what you have been begging God for with fasting and prayers.




I bring you a mystery today!

THE REVIVAL AND THE MOVES OF GOD

Genesis 2:4-6
[4]These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
[5]And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
[6]But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

God had not caused it to rain upon the earth because there was no man. God is helpless without a man and will never be able to send down His rain(move) on earth without a man.

Thus, there are two elements that makes up the move of God:
1. A man
2. Territories

What is the Move of God?
The move of God is God moving men through roles in His agenda which births events called Revivals.
A revelation of Alignment!

Kingdom advancement is territorial and not just personal. The value system of the kingdom must translate from you and be reflected in your…

GOD'S UNIVERSAL AGENDA: THE EVERLASTING KINGDOM.

There is a kingdom which transcend beyond kingdoms that are bound by time, which is ruled by vanity. This Kingdom is void of human corruption, absent of pain and hatred. This Kingdom is eternal and sovereign.
It is known as the Kingdom of God.

THE 21ST CENTURY MIRACLE

Isaiah 8:17-18
[17]And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
[18]Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.


God hides himself from a generation that they may seek Him. And only those that seek Him in a generation finds Him. These ones become Signs(Systems of Reference) and do Wonders!
It is only those that know(have found) their God that are: Strong(a sign)and do Exploits(Wonders)!


Thus, you are the miracle your Generation needs!

You are a sign for signs; you're supernatural.
You are a sign for wonders; you're a miracle.
You are for signs and wonders.
But do you know the miracle this century needs?


As a miracle for you to happen, you have to understand the difference between signs, wonders and miracles. The illustration attached above explains this.

Having seen thus;
1. Do not confuse the signs for all believers as mi…
