Apostles? Are they really?
I believe in real apostles and know that they still are called and in the world today.
Their main duty is people in the church or… the work of the building of churches of Jesus Christ.
But today……. many are saying they are apostles when they should understand the difference between just being an apostle or a sent one.
The real apostle will be more than just one sent…. but will walk in all the anointing of God and gifts of God. Not just one or two gifts, but all of them.
The apostle… Will be a “He”. I find no Bible reference to any woman apostle.
It is okay for a woman to be sent and even preach, and minister, or be prophetess, but, where does it say a woman was an apostle?
One of the things that God commended one of the 7 Churches in Revelation about, was: they tried them who said they were apostles and found them to be liars.
“I know your works, and your labor, and your patience, and how you can not bear them who are evil: and you have tried them who say they are apostles, and are not, and have found them liars,” Revelation 2:2.
And, I might add…..
Just because a man [calls himself an apostle] and has a huge ministry, does not prove he is one.
‘Huge’ is not the proof of apostleship, [Nor is it proof that anyone is something… just because they have a large ministry or following….].
One may have many, but so do the Mormons. So do the Jehovah Witnesses. So do the Catholics.
‘Many’, equate success, on size.
God equates success on obedience and love.
God sent Phillip, who was experiencing a great revival in Samaria, away from the revival to go down into the desert to preach to one man riding in a chariot who did not know Jesus.
God broke into a real revival of many persons, and sent the evangelist away to a secluded place for one man lost.
So who is to say, huge is success? Success could very well be one soul. See [Acts 8:26-39]
Many who are saying they are apostles do, as well, write books and sell them..
I personally heard the LORD say to me: “Freely have you received….. freely give.”
Many are making merchandise of the Word of God, when the Word of God is free….. and to be given without charge.
If a person has to write books to have enough money to support his ministry/ apostleship, then would not Jesus go in and scatter the money changers?
The Apostle Paul said he made his ministry without charge. In other words, he did not sell the Word of God. Nor did he sell his ministry.
“I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars,” Revelation 2:2.

I have posted this word in obedience to my LORD. We live in a day of great deception, and should be aware of it…
LORD open the eyes of your people to see clearly.
