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.

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…

THE MINISTRIES OF MEN 2

Romans 11:29
[29] For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. 

Notice the word "GIFTS" here is plural, while the word "CALLING" being singular.
There is only one calling!
There is no higher or lesser call than the other.

Although, this does not disregard the fact that there are some people specially reserved and set in the body as offices. This calling is to grow into the stature of the Christ.  It was the Lord who went down beyond and gave gifts unto men.

Remember, the Law of giving;
YOU CAN NOT GIVE WHAT YOU DO NOT HAVE!
And so, Christ himself being the embodiment of the 5-fold gave of himself. In following Christ, as you keep growing through into the template of the Christ - in maturity and stature, you will begin to experience the 5-fold (apostolic, prophetic, evangelical, pastoral, and teaching) ministry in your life.

The gifts are for all to profit withal, it is not the inheritance of any man.
We do not just have gift; we are all gifts and on the b…

THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN

Psalm 8:4-6
[4]What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
[5]For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
[6]Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet

Everything in heaven and on Earth was created for man but man cannot make use of it until he knows WHAT HE IS.

Heaven was never created for God. Heaven and Earth were created for man... But it takes a man who knows WHAT he is to accurately represent God on earth, because, man is meant to extend the fullness of God in the earth for God and so, in reality, God needs men!

We came from God; not heaven and we are returning to God through heaven!
1 Timothy 3:16
[16]And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

The Lord Jesus did all …

KAIROS: THE MYSTERY OF TIME

At the very beginning of Jesus’ earthly ministry  Jesus tells of a great opportunity: God’s kingdom is within our reach. To enter the kingdom, however, we must go through a process of REPENTANCE and BELIEF.

Mark 1:14‭-‬15 KJV‬‬: Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Through this process we learn how:
-To lay down our lives
-Pick up the cross
-Follow Jesus into the kingdom

These three highlights aren’t steps but a circle that represents our Journey into the kingdom of God and time: the kairos moments in our lives which is the portal through which we enter into Kingdom living.

What is a Kairos Moment? 
A portal (access) through which we enter into dimensions of results. It is a moment and moments defines time just like seasons define destiny.
Eg: Jesus’ death on the cross was not a last-ditch effort on God’s  part …
