Apostles are Reformers, Warriors, Strategists

Written by Lawrence Zolnowski

Apostles are ardent reformers and early supporters of a cause. They carry a revolutionary spirit. Uzziah is a good example of an apostolic reformer, builder and restorer. He was only sixteen years old when he became king. He built Eloth and restored it to Judah, a significant pattern for apostolic ministry (2 Chronicles 26:1-2).

Restore, Hebrew shuwb means to "turn back, recover or return." There are old truths lost in the sea of religious traditions of men that God is restoring throughout his Church.

The Coming Apostolic Master Builders

Written by Lawrence Zolnowski

By Jonas Clark

 

The current structure or model of church ministry revolves around the pastoral paradigm (model) of ministry. A paradigm is a structure of ministry that serves as a model or pattern. It's astonishing but the word pastor, Greek poimen is only mentioned once in the entire New Testament. From one occurrence in scripture we have built thousands of pastoral churches. Yet there were no churches ever built in the New Testament by pastors. Even the one started at Antioch soon received Barnabas as an apostolic leader. Barnabas was a sent-one (apostolic gift) from the church in Jerusalem.

All New Testament churches were built by apostles, not pastors. Scripture says, “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers” (Ephesians 4:11). Though we see the word pastor, poimen, only once in scripture we have used it to create a model of how ministry is supposed to function and have made it our current model for ministry.

Hope in Times of Crisis

Hope in Times of Crisis
By Apostle G. Maldonado

In times of crisis, we cannot continue to do the same things we do as in times of abundance. When we are confronted with a season of scarcity, we have to change our way of working and producing. One of the ways God has planned for this is through creative ideas. People who are faithful in bringing in their first fruits to the Lord and to honor Him with their money, have the right to expect to receive creative ideas from Him that will resolve their critical situation; this extends to the family, business, education, work, or any other area. For this to take place and for us to see this and not lose out on it, we must also go through a change in mentality and an uprooting of paradigms. We need to work in a different way because the times have changed.

"A Key To Miracles"

Written by Lawrence Zolnowski

Bill Johnson

Jesus once called a group of onlookers hypocrites because they could discern the weather but couldn't discern the times. It's apparent why Jesus would prefer people to recognize the times (spiritual climate and seasons) over natural weather conditions--but it's not quite so apparent why He would consider them hypocrites if they didn't.

Bill Johnson:

For centuries the people of God have gathered together around specific truths. Denominations and organizations have been formed to unite these groups of Believers. Having common belief systems (see footnote 1 at bottom) has helped to build unity within particular groups and define their purpose. Historically these groups were formed from people who were usually newly saved, or were asked to leave whatever denomination they were previously a part of.
