PT7 The Same One Who Came Down He Is The One Who Ascended Higher Than All The Heavens, So That His Rule Might Fill The Entire Universe. He Is The One Who Gave These Gifts to the church: (Ekklesia, God's Called Out Ones) The Apostles, The Prophets, The Evangelist, And The Pastors and Teachers. Their Responsibility Is To Equip God's People To Do His Work and Build Up the church, (The Ekklesia) The Body Of Christ, Until We Come To Such Unity In Our Faith And Knowledge of God's Son That We Will Be Mature And Full Growing In The Lord, Measuring Up To The Full Statue Of Christ. Then we will no longer Be Like Children, forever changing our minds about What We Believe because someone has told us Something Different or because someone has Cleverly Lied To Us and Made The Lies Sound Like The Truth. Ephesians 4:10-14 Lesson here: So do we have a True Representation and Example of what these Gifts and Functions look like? Yes we do! What is The Function of an Apostle? The Apostle makes sure that The Foundation Of The Truth Is Established Properly And Correctly! The Foundation of our Christian Belief is "Jesus Is The Only Way, The Truth, And The Life. No One Can Get To The Father Except Through Him!" John 14:6 The Unity of Our Faith and Our Knowledge of The Son of God, Must Be The Foundation of The Apostolic Teaching Of A True Apostle. Jesus was The Greatest Example Of A Prophet: Jesus replied, "I assure you, The Son Can Do Nothing By Himself. He Does Only What He Sees The Father Doing. Whatever The Father Does, The Son Also Does." John 5:19 A True Biblical Prophet Will Only Do And Say What The Father Is Doing And Saying. Why is this important? "It is The Spirit Who Gives Eternal Life. Human Effort accomplishes nothing. And The Very Words I Have Spoken To You Are Spirit And Life." John 6:63 A True Apostle or Prophet will never come in his own name. Jesus Yahshua Has Set The Example, He Did Nothing In His Own Name. And His Name is Above Every Other Name Hallelujah!
