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 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…

DATING - WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

Dating and Dates ( - going on dates) are two different things.
Dates are events where an individual goes out to meet people and know people. eg. A father and daughter going on a date.

Dating is form of romantic courtship typically between two individuals with the aim of assessing the other's suitability as a partner in an intimate relationship or as a spouse.
It is going on with someone intentionally checking to know if you have compatibility (emotionally, sexually, etc) with him/her with no boundaries, specificity or exclusivity!

The concept of dating is not Kingdom-oriented. There's no such things as "Christian Dating".
What then do we do instead of dating?
Do you know how to find your wife without dating?
Do you know how to found by your husband without dating?

TERRITORIAL RELEVANCE

The Garden of Eden in Genesis is not just a Story or History. It is our life to be lived.
- It is the system of God for Territorial Relevance cum Global Relevance!

The garden was God's first gift to the unfallen man(Adam) and also, every redeemed man.

 Though, after the fall of the man; thus the corruption of the earth, the system changed.

Joel 2:3
[3]A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

The system changed to men going through The Wilderness experience first, before The Garden experience then True RELEVANCE!
- John the Baptist being the system, Jesus being the standard. You?
