Five Ministerial Calling [3]

Wednesday 16th September 2020 Devotion
Scripture:- Ephesians 4:1-14
Topic:- Five Ministerial Calling [3]
Text:- 1 Corinthians 12:28

  1. Prophets Guide:
    A man or woman who represents the interests of God to the people. Having stood in the Council of God, the Prophet releases a clarion call to the people of what is in God’s heart at the moment.
    Prophets reveal God’s heart to His people, giving guidance to individuals and the body, giving revelation, as well as interpretation, application and timing.
    We see several examples in the book of Acts. In Acts 21, Agabus is a good example of where prophecy can be rightly interpreted, yet applied wrongly, as Paul was urged not to go to Jerusalem, escaping the predictive prophecy of his fate.
    In this case, we see prophecy as fore-telling, yet it is also forth-telling which is often neglected by those who run after prophetic words.
    With the new acceptance and recognition of the office of a Prophet over the past twenty years, believers turning to them as fortune-tellers have become a real problem that has driven many to totally reject Prophets.
    God has established Prophets in His Church, and the Church will not be complete if we reject their ministry out of fear.
    Many Pastors live in fear of Prophets, feeling threatened by what they might say to the Church or even himself, and at times rightly so since too many Prophetic people exalt themselves and the words they speak instead of being humble Servants to the body, allowing leadership to weigh their words and judge them as commanded by Scripture.
  2. Evangelists Gather:
    An Evangelist carries a great burden for those who are not a part of the kingdom of God yet, and an anointing to preach the gospel to them that comes with great conviction and draws them to the Lord.
    They will often have signs and wonders following them to confirm their message. The prime example of an Evangelist in the New Testament is Philip.
    He was one of the men chosen to serve the widows in Acts 6, and he is the only one specifically called an Evangelist. In Acts 8 he obeys the Holy Spirit and brings the Ethiopian Eunuch to a believing knowledge of Christ. See Acts 21:8.
    Evangelists create converts, while Apostles create Disciples. Their foremost desire is to see people come into the kingdom, then leaving the discipline to others.
    They love teaching others how to win people, and never feel like they are actually doing enough and accomplishing their task.
    While they are grieved to see believers’ indifference regarding the lost, they do have an anointing to impart God’s broken heart to the body. Evangelists are absolutely crucial for numeric growth in the local Church and the kingdom of God.

Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, help me to function well in the area You have called me to serve You henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
