FIVE FOLD MINISTRY

20100913EPHESIANS 4:1 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors (shepherds) and teachers,
12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,
15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head — Christ —
16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

JESUS CHRIST WHO IS OUR EXAMPLE, LIFE AND EMPOWERMENT OCCUPIED ALL THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRIES! HE WAS AN APOSTLE, PROPHET, EVANGELIST, SHEPHERD AND TEACHER. AND THERE IS NO REASON WHY ANY SPIRIT FILLED CHRISTIAN THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT CANNOT DO THE SAME TODAY FOR JESUS STATED:

John 14:12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

CHRISTIANS, DUE TO FAULTY TEACHINGS, UNBELIEF, LACK OF FAITH, DOCTRINES OF DEMONS AND OTHER THINGS, LIMIT WHAT GOD CAN DO IN THEIR LIFE OR MINISTRY OR CIRCUMSTANCE, NOT GOD! HIS WORD IS UNCHANGING:

Romans 8:32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

2 Samuel 12:8 I gave you your master’s house and your master’s wives into your keeping, and gave you the house of Israel and Judah. And if that had been too little, I also would have given you much more!

THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT AS BORN  AGAIN CHRISTIANS WE CAN HAVE THE SAME SPIRIT UPON US THAT WAS UPON JESUS, WE COULD BE STRONG IN THE LORD AND THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT, WE CAN DO THE SAME WORKS THAT JESUS DID AND THAT WE CAN HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST SO THAT WE CAN BE MORE THAN CONQUERORS IN ALL THINGS:

Isaiah 11:1 There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
2  The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.
3  His delight is in the fear of the LORD, And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;
4  But with righteousness He shall judge the poor, And decide with equity for the meek of the earth; He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.
5 Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, And faithfulness the belt of His waist.

John 14:12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

1 CORINTHIANS 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.
16 For “who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

2 Timothy 2:1 You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

REMEMBER THAT GRACE MEANS GOD’S (UNLIMITED) RICHES AT CHRIST’S EXPENSE
