The Five-Fold Ministry is to work in unison for the edification of the body of Christ.
Pastors and prophets should be working together in unison, so that the whole body of believers will see in the service, the demonstration of the Spirit and power, so that our confidence will not be in the wisdom of man, but in the power of God.
God will confirm to you the Word That Is Sent, with signs and wonders following; meaning confirmations of what He is showing the Body of believers.
Evangelists and pastors work together for the salvation of souls and the caring of the flock, following up with new Christians to assure their growth in the Word of God.
Apostles and prophets work together, along with pastors, to plant, confirm the Word, and follow up. with the needs of the flock being addressed.
Pastors and teachers work together to assure the flock that the Word they have heard is setting up a sound foundation for their faith, and that it lines up with scripture, with the Holy Spirit confirming to everyone the LORD’s intent for the believers..
Pray for this unity to take place wherever you go.
Lay aside all jealousies so that the believers, and those who are new in their faith in God, will not be scattered.
“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 ……. causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love,” Ephesians 4:11-13,16 NKJV.
What Are You Doing About It?
You will always be who you are called to be.
You will always be what you are called to be.
The only time when you are not who and what you are called to be, is when you allow yourself to not be.
When others define your purpose while you sit by idly, others are taking ownership of your calling.
What are you doing about it?
