They Don't Know Where to Put Apostles in Church Today

I was reading this book [not the one above] about how big the church really is, and in one portion it talked about apostles and prophets. It said church "experts" can't figure out where to place apostles and prophets today in church. Since church denominations have their leaders, where would apostles and prophets find their place in them? The book also mentioned how past church "experts" surmised or hinted that the disappearance of apostles and prophets in church was due to the sufficiency of the offices of bishops, elders, and pastors to efficiently run the church all by themselves without help from apostles and prophets. Hence, their gradual exclusion.

Well, at least modern church "experts" now are thinking about putting back apostles and prophets in church. That's a relief. The problem is, they can't figure out what their roles would be. I don't see that as the problem. What is, is the stubborn insistence on keeping church denominations. You can't mix man's church with God's church. You have to get rid of one or the other. God's apostles and prophets have no place in man's church denominations.

Denominational Apostles and Prophets

Well, there are so-called apostles and prophets today who manage to operate in a church denominational set up. You see them busy with their own ministries or petty kingdoms--just like denominations--but not busy with the one glorious, universal, and spiritual church of Jesus Christ, without spot or wrinkle or any blemish, but holy and pure. Funny thing is, you see them criticizing church denominations, when the fact is, they're no different from them in principle. You also see no true unity among them.

This apostle has his own agenda and ministry, while that apostle has his own, as well. Some prophets operate on their own, thinking they can do without apostles. And how many evangelists today have their ministries totally independent of apostles and prophets, some not even believing they still exist today? Their ministries and agenda never unite as one. They just form temporary alliances. Why is this happening in both denominations and apostolic ministries? Because no one wants to give up everything. They think they've worked hard to get their ministries up and thriving and now they claim full ownership of them, not willing to give them up to give way to the one global glorious church of Jesus Christ.

I wonder who's going to do it first? Who'd be that man of God who'd finally see this truth and start giving up everything for God and His glorious church and Kingdom on earth--so that the rest would follow suit? Everyone wants to make a name for himself and keep the glory, while paying lip service to "doing it all for the glory of God."

Get Rid of Denominations 

The thing is to get rid of denominations and any semblance of it, and then all true believers to unite completely as one, just as the Father and Son are one. Then God's genuine apostles and prophets will have their proper places in the one glorious church of Jesus Christ. The evangelists, pastors, and teachers will, too. Everything will fall into place by the power and wisdom of the Holy Spirit, as what happened in the Acts church.

Some folks ask me: what would happen to local church denominations and where would believers gather for worship in their localities? My answer: they gather where they used to gather--in their local church denomination buildings. Only this time, they don't gather as a denomination anymore; they gather as one body belonging to the one global body of Christ with one doctrine, belief, faith, ministry, and mission, and with completely united apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers [APEPT].

How the Glorious Church Operates

As in Acts, APEPTs worldwide should meet regularly as a global council, like the Jerusalem Council, all led by the Holy Spirit. God made it happen in Acts, He can make it happen in these last days. In fact, He will make it happen, because he will restore all things before Jesus Christ comes back [Acts 3.21]. There should be a horizontal apostle in such meetings who acts as moderator and final decision maker as Peter and James were. Horizontal apostles are not better than the other apostles and lord it over them. They get the anointing of the hour to weigh things that have been discussed and decide on a conclusion, led by the Holy Spirit [Acts 15. 13-21] The Acts Council never did anything by votation but by being led by the Spirit through a horizontal apostle [Acts 15.22-23].

Whatever decision the global church council of APEPTs comes up with is trickled down to the local churches worldwide led by various APEPTs and bishops and deacons who do their ministries as one man. Thus, church denominations should be demolished as well as the emerging apostolic denominations. Every true believer should desperately pursue the prayer of my Jesus in John 17--the one global glorious church patterned after His LIFE, Ways, Will, and WORD alone. God will make this happen, but He will first destroy everything man-made.

How to Know If a Ministry is Failing in God's Eyes

It's easy to see if a ministry is really failing. Remember, God is spirit. The only way to please him is in spirit and in truth. You cannot please God by your church building, church income, membership size or Sunday worship programs.

Actually, the ministry Jesus showed us in the bible was so simple. It's super simple, in fact. It's mainly on preaching, miraculous healing, and discipleship. Just these three. We don't have to add anything to this. Jesus did only these three and he did well. He pleased the Father to the max.

Preaching

You don't have to be a titled preacher to do this. Just share the Word. All you need is knowledge of the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. These two equip you to the max. The Word of God is God breathed "so that the man of God may be adequate, fully equipped for every good work," [2 Timothy 3.17].

You see the words, "fully eq…

Micah: Statutes of Omri and Practices of Ahab

It begins with the statutes of Omri (Micah 6.16). Omri was a follower of the evil ways of Jeroboam (1Kings16). He laid down the statutes (or doctrines) and Ahab his son applied and developed them. These are all against being God's flesh on earth.

Omri’s statutes were simple: they were based on wicked and corrupt ways as King Jeroboam did them. How did Jeroboam do them? Simply by doing God’s will in man’s ways. He disobeyed the prophet Ahijah who told him to do everything in God’s ways alone: “If you do everything I command you and walk in my ways and do whatever is correct in my eyes...I will build you a dynasty...”(1Kings11).

Jeroboam grabbed God's will of kingship but did it in greed. Man's ways are nothing but greed, no matter how they try to make it look religious or spiritual or "Christian."

But because of his greed for corrupt power he did everything wicked—he did everything in man’s ways. He always “thought to himself” and not to God, and he revived the …

God as Your Stronghold

"My Life's Stronghold is God." -Ps.27
We read about it several times in the bible that God is a stronghold. Do we know what "stronghold" means? Often, we associate "stronghold" with the devil, like "the devil's stronghold." So, what do we mean by God is my stronghold? How does God become a stronghold. If you don't know what it means to have God as stronghold, that's a stronghold.
Devil as Stronghold
When a person has strong propensities to sin and evil, we say that it's due to a stronghold. And we mean that the devil's hold on that person is really strong. No matter how much that person wants to change and start going to church, he just can't. When presented with a situation that makes him choose between good and evil, he is likely to choose evil even if in his mind he wants good. If he chooses good, it'll just be for a moment---probably 5 seconds---and then be back to evil again. That's a stronghold.
