Some people need to really get a revelation of who a Apostle is, and their mandate, mission, calling, and purpose. Too many people try to put a person into their man-made religious boxes.
Stop trying to limit them to the four walls of a building. They are builders of people and ministries they are shapers of minds to the word, ways, and things of God. They are introducers to new moves of God. They are trainers of those who are called and chosen for ministry. They are correctors of things which are errors and misinterpretations in the body of Christ.
They teach the principles of God’s word and correct doctrine errors. They set in position the leadership in God’s body. They are not stationary but they move as God gives them instructions. They are obedient to The Lord and they are speakers of righteousness. They teach and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and build the foundation of the church with it.
They are more than attire and prestige and status. They don’t walk in pride or greed. They live in a state of humility and faith in God. They have a strong prayer life. They not about building themselves, but about building the Kingdom of God and the people.
They walk in unconditional love toward all of mankind but they don’t compromise the holiness and righteousness of God. They are leaders trainers and teachers but they are not dictators manipulators or intimidators.
Yes they walk in authority. They are to live a life of integrity honor and above reproach. They love souls and they do all in their power to win mankind to Christ.
So many talked more about how they are dressed on the outside, and how they should be honored and respected, but if they are not dressed on the inside with the character, and attributes of Christ, then they can put on 1000 robes, and the traditional dress they wear is still not what makes them be a Apostle.
I say it all the time. Anybody can have a title and can obtain a piece a paper, but if the character, attributes, anointing, and approval of God are not there, then all you have is a person dress up and affirmed and ordained to do nothing, but bring chaos and confusion to the body of Christ!
