"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]
...."You, in Your great
compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB
THE "ESSENCE" OF THE APOSTOLIC CALLING AND ANOINTING
Words of prophecy:
* If one strips things down to the "essence"
of the apostolic calling and anointing upon My Glorious Church it is: ALL things [said and done] for My greatest Glory - and the greatest well-being [edification and blessing] of My people" [Christ - ALL in ALL]
...."And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers
of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers. His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ's
body (the church), [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing
less than the standard height of Christ's own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him".... Ephesians 4:11-13 The Amplified Translation
In essence, the mandate given to the five-fold ministry from the Father is to help His precious children, in any way they can [in obedience to Him], enter into the "fullness" of their precious inheritance [Covenant]in Christ. If one will simply trust in the
Father concerning the words going forth from those ministries HE has led them to partake of [those words being confirmed by the Word of God and the Holy Spirit - at EVERY turn] He will SURELY, in and by the Power of His Spirit, sow the necessary "seeds of
revelation" in their heart that will both "illuminate" and "establish" them in the absolute truths [principles] of the Kingdom [with a view to their entering into and fulfilling His highest Will and Purpose for them].
make secure, stable or permanent; to initiate and cause to last; to clear from doubt;
...."Establish Your word to Your servant, As that which produces reverence for You".... Psalms 119:38 NASB
...."For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
[II Cor. 9:10.] So shall My word [Will] be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent
it".... Isaiah 55:10-11 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
Heavenly Father, we thank You and praise You that in this most glorious hour You are raising up a
true, working five-fold ministry - one that represents You perfectly in every way. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
