APOSTLES AND GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT
THE IDEA THAT HEALING AND MIRACLES WERE ONLY FOR THE APOSTOLIC AGE IS SHEAR NONSENSE AND DEMONIC AS THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A SPECIFIC APOSTOLIC AGE! DEMONIC FUNDAMENTALIST TEACHERS WHO ARE NOT LED OR TAUGHT BY THE HOLY SPIRIT AND WHOM GOD DOESN’T CONFIRM THEIR WORDS WITH MIRACLE SIGNS AND WONDERS FOLLOWING ARE OF THE WALL DENYING APOSTLE OR PROPHETS OR GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT! APOSTLES HAVE NOT CEASED AS THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST HAS NOT CEASED
The Bible makes clear that in order to be an apostle, you must have been witness to the resurrected Christ, thus the office is closed today even though there are many charlatans who want you to believe they are apostles. Anthony Wade
The above remark that Apostles or prophets have ceased is a lie from the pits of hell and contrary to God’s word of what God gave to the church as long as it exists on earth Ephesians 4:11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors 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.
One of the best arguments for continuationism OF THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT is the sheer volume of Scripture in the New Testament devoted to explaining the gifts. It defies logic to think that in every other area of the Bible we have specificity relevant through today but when it comes to this subject, God was only speaking about the apostolic age. In fact, one of the most used and correct arguments to defend against the cultural relevance arguments from the world is to say that God is the same yesterday, today and forever. That argument cannot become yesterday…and through the Apostolic age. I don’t think cessationists have thought that logically through. In order for their position to be true – God changed upon the death of the Apostle John even though there is no indication of that anywhere in Scripture. Not only that but let’s continue to be logical here. The Book of 1 Corinthians for example (which contains writings about the gifts) was written around 57 AD and the Council of Nicaea, which determined the canon of Scripture was in 325 AD, 270 years later and 230 years after the end of the apostolic age. Since we all agree theologically that the canon of Scripture was written under divine inspiration, why would the Holy Spirit inspire Paul to write about something that had only 28 years of remaining relevance and would be completely irrelevant at the time it would become Scripture? That does not sound like the omniscient God we all know and serve. Why would God ensure that it was included at the Council of Nicaea if He knew it contained obsolete theology that we should not follow? No, logic must dictate that since God selected the canon of Scripture, it is all relevant and not subject to cultural or time related arguments. It is literally a Rob Bell argument, thinking that something doesn’t apply for today that once did apply.

Rick Warren’s Daughter on Family Struggles: ‘Pain Births Beauty’
Veronica Neffinger | Editor, ChristianHeadlines.com | Monday, October 12, 2015
Rick Warren’s daughter recently spoke about the struggles of mental illness at Saddleback Church’s second annual Gathering on Mental Health and the Church.
The Christian Examiner reports that Amy Hilliker, the oldest child of Rick and Kay Warren, spoke at the conference held at the church where he father is a pastor, and shared her family’s struggle with mental illness.
The Warren’s youngest son, Matthew, took his own life in 2013 after a long battle with mental illness. The Warrens launched the Gathering on Mental Health and the Church to open the doors of communication about mental illness within the church body, a place where the issue of mental illness is not often addressed.
Hilliker spoke about her brother’s struggle. “Early on I had an idea that Matthew was different in some vulnerable way,” she said. “My protective nature kicked in early and, in my own way, I joined my parents in rallying around our weakest link.”
Hilliker went on to discuss the toll Matthew’s struggle with mental illness had on herself and her family, as well as the struggle she faced with her own anxiety and panic attacks, brought on by chronic Lymes Disease.
Hilliker said that, during these struggles, she felt like her family was “living in this underground bunker.”
“We were here existing on planet Earth but not really engaging with the real world or real people,” she continued.. “We would occasionally lift that hatch and look out long enough and survey the land. Then the next wave of chaos would hit and we’d have to hunker down and hold onto each other and pray to make it through.”
Hilliker said she eventually realized that she could not save her brother, but was called simply to listen to his struggles and “love him where he was at.”
She urged conference attendees to do the same when seeking to help someone struggling with mental illness.
“I wish we knew then the kind of things we know now,” Hilliker said. “But for those of us who know Jesus, pain births beauty. The story is not even close to being over yet. Because God is making every hard and ugly and painful thing that I endured, that our family endured, work for good in our lives and the lives of others. The hope is, the Bible tells us, that this work will not end, until God has extracted every teeny, tiny morsel of good out of that pain. He will not let up until this work is finished.”
