THE MINISTRIES OF MEN 1


Hebrews 10:5 
KJV:Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me.

Men are actors, and if actors do not come in place, the plan and Agenda of God will not come into being. Remember it is spirits that works through men, men are just actors!

Ezekiel 22:30
KJV:And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

Only God and men do the kingdom, so it is important we know and understand the role and relevance of men and their ministries.
In sovereignty, you need only God, but in reality, you need both God and men.

God does not bypass men to bless men.
Men are the first resource of God!

It is on this basis what you do does not matters as the people you are actually doing these things for. Ministries, businesses and organizations are big because of the people in them!

Ephesians 4:7,11 KJV
But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

This is a revelation that all of us are given grace and are gifts of the body of Christ. It is Christ that gives to each and everyone of us as He wills. To activate the ministry of men in your life, you must know you are a gift yourself and learn to discern and receive men as gifts and not just their gifts.

The five-fold is not your priest!
You are a priest and Jesus Christ is our High Priest!
The ministry of men have not been fully experienced as a result of misplaced priorities. There is an expectancy of the Apostles and prophets to be our priest, but we all have been called to be priests...

1 Corinthians 12:28
KJV:And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.

These people (Men) have been SET in the body, not SENT to you!
These Men are SET IN the body of Christ. They occupy OFFICES!
These offices have been confused as ministries and thus a limitation on the body of Christ...

There is a huge difference between an Apostolic ministry and an Apostolic office.

The function of the Apostle is to govern.
He is a visionary and a strategist. With his ability of long sightedness, he can set frontiers for even for the prophet.

The function of the prophet is to guide.
He is a spiritual advisor. A prophet has foresight; the ability to see into the future.

The function of the evangelist is to gather.
An evangelist has the advantages of persuasion. He is a persuasive communicator. An evangelist has hindsight; ability to understand the event of the Lord Jesus; his death, resurrection, and Ascension into Lordship.

The function of the pastor is to guard.
He is like the human resource/counsellor. A pastor has oversight; ability to manage and nurture.

The function of the teacher is to ground.
He is the logical thinker and the interpreter. A teacher has insight; ability to see clearly, dissect reality, bring perspectives and communicate it in life application.

Every of these men(offices) have their functions and nature of functions and it is very important to understand them in order not to misinterpret or misplace their functions in the body.

Have you been able to properly discern the ministries of men in your life?
Have you understood the difference between the gifts of the body of Christ and the gifts for the body of Christ?
Do you want to understand the functions and nature of functions of the men(offices) in the body of Christ?

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.

Lets move on; The Apostle Paul speaks of the variety of spiritual gifts : “Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. . . . But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will” (I Corinthians 12:4–11).

DISCERNING THE MOVE OF GOD

Acts 2:17 [17]And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams God wants to move again and He needs a lot of vessels. God is not trying to repeat the same thing. He does not fail so He does not repeat. He only uses a familiar operation; a familiar move to men to progress the birth of The revival. Christianity(The Sphere of Religion) cannot export and empty itself into other spheres of influence, Men have to be exported into these spheres and the only way men will be exported is when we discern what God is trying to do and position ourselves for these moves. Our generation has to understand the synchronization between the Cyclical and the Acyclical move of God. We need to understand how these dimensions sync into each other to birth the revival.

ARE YOU TRUE TO YOUR CALLING? | Pastor E.A Adeboye

There are many people in ministry today who are going off track because they are operating in areas wherein they were not called.  Some out of personal ambition, are operating in callings that are not theirs while others are innocently operating in the wrong callings out of concern. Having a burden about something or seeing a need does not automatically translate to a calling! “And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.”                    2 Timothy 2:5 KJV According to the above Bible verse, anyone who does things outside the will of the Master will be disqualified. Everyone who God has called is scored by Him! If what you are doing is outside God’s calling for your life, no matter how good you are in that calling or ministry, it is regarded as irrelevant. Paul was greatly burdened by how the Jews were walking outside the will of God. He kept preaching to them, yet they were persecuting him. The greatest persecution he go
