“That which we [the apostles] have seen and heard declare we [the apostles] unto you, that ye [ALL of you—the disciples and non-believers] also may have fellowship with us [the apostles]: and truly our [the apostle’s] fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we [the apostles] unto you [the disciples and the non-believers], that your [the disciple’s and non-believer’s] joy may be full.” (1st John 1:3-4).

 

“He hath showed thee, O man [ALL mankind], what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” (Micah 6:8).

 

One of the first relationships a person should have when coming into the Kingdom and Body of Christ—the Church should be with the Father. The people of God, called the Church, are also called the Family of God. And in any family the newborn baby coming out of the womb should be introduced to the parents. Both the mother AND the father.

After a hip-hop street (evangelistic) team has hit the streets and proclaimed the awesome news of the coming Government and Kingdom of God, once that non-believer has been given the Spirit of God by faith in that message, then the new birth takes place. You become conceived in the Spirit. The church is the mother of the people of God called New Jerusalem. The Apostle Paul says,

 

“For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh [these are Satan’s tares]; but he of the freewoman was by promise [these are Christ’s wheat]. Which things are an allegory [This is not only an allegory, but it is an allegory containing many metaphors as well. An allegory is when characters or events (such as Sarah and Hagar the Egyptian and their children) represent abstract or spiritual ideas or principles. A metaphor is when one thing is said to be something else. (such as Hagar actually being mount Sinai, which then represents or corresponds to Jerusalem in bondage)]: for these are the two covenants [Old/Physical and New/Spiritual Covenant]; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth [GIVES BORTH] to bondage, which is Hagar [the Egyptian]. For this Hagar is mount Sinai in Arabia [where the Law of Moses/Old Covenant was given and produced bondage sons/disciples—tares], and answereth to [literal, physical] Jerusalem which now is [on earth over in Israel], and is in bondage with her children. But [NEW, SPIRITUAL] Jerusalem [called Mt Zion (Sarah) where the Law of Christ/NEW Covenant was given and produced sons/disciples--wheat] which is above is free, which is the mother of US all [ALL true believers].” (Galatians 4:22-26).

 

The newly converted artists of God need to know WHO his or her parents are. And do to that you have to come into contact with two people who represent this relationship to you.

 

1.  God the Father, who is represented in the face of Jesus Christ,

2.  And New Jerusalem, the Mother of all of the believers, who is represented in the face of the Apostles (fathers) and Elders (mothers), who many today have been calling the Five Fold Ministry. That would be the Apostles (fathers), Prophets (fathers), Teachers (mothers), Evangelists (mothers), and Pastors (mothers). (Also the Bishops and Deacons are to act as the roles of midwives and handmaidens).

 

Jesus told the Apostles,

 

“Jesus saith unto him, I AM the Way [to the Father], the Truth [of the Father], and the Life [OF the Father]: NO MAN cometh unto the Father, BUT BY ME. If ye [Gk: ‘ALL or any of you’] had known Me, ye [ALL of you Christians] should have known My Father also: and from henceforth [from this moment on] ye [ALL of you sons of God] know Him, and have seen him. Philip saith unto Him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth [Gk: ‘be satisfactory:--be content, be enough, will satisfy’] us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known Me, Philip [MY Son]? he that hath seen Me [Jesus Christ] hath seen the FATHER; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? Believest thou not that I AM IN the Father, and the Father IN Me? The Words that I speak unto you I speak not of Myself: but the Father that dwelleth IN Me, He doeth the works. Believe Me that I AM IN the Father, and the Father IN Me: or else believe Me for the very works’ sake.” (John 14:6-11).

 

“NO MAN hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, He [Jesus, the Son] hath declared Him. (John 1:18).

 

Do you want to fellowship with the Father? You have to go through Jesus Christ! Pretty simple huh?
Do you want to see what the Father looks like and how He acts in real time? You need to find what the church has been calling Apostolic & Prophetic Fathers.

 

“And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha saw it, and he cried, MY FATHER, MY FATHER, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces. He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan; and he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the LORD God of Elijah? And when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.” (2nd Kings 2:11-14).

 

“I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you. For though ye [ALL of you Christians/sons of God] have ten thousand instructors [Prophetic mentors, Teaching mentors, Evangelistic mentors, and Pastoral mentors] IN Christ, yet have ye [ALL of you] NOT many [Apostolic] fathers: for IN Christ Jesus I have begotten [spiritually conceived] you through the gospel [of the Kingdom]. Wherefore [for this reason] I beseech you, be ye [ALL of you Corinthian disciples] followers [Gk: ‘imitate’] OF ME. For this cause [reason, purpose] have I sent unto you Timotheus [Timothy], who is my beloved [apostolic] son, and faithful IN the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my WAYS which be IN Christ, as I teach every where in every church.” (1st Corinthians 4:14-17)

 

“Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope; unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.” (1st Timothy 1:1-2).

 

“Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God’s elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness … to [the young apostle] Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour. For this cause [reason, purpose] left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting [lacking], and ordain elders [ordain prophets, teachers, evangelists, and pastors] in every city, as I had appointed thee.” (Titus 1:1, 4-5).

What does that word “partnership” mean? Let’s look at Strong’s Expanded Exhaustive Concordance of the New Testament. The Greek word is “koinonia” and before I give you this definition many of you already knows what that word means. Right! It IS the same Greek word for “fellowship.” But what the word actually means and how it is used to describe its function or usage is very far from what or how it is practice in today’s existing church system–Mystery Babylon.

 

Greek#2842 “koinonia” is used 20 times in the New Testament an is defined as: “From G#2844 (‘A sharer, i.e. associate:–companion, × fellowship, partaker, partner’). Partnership, i.e. (literal) participation, or (social) intercourse, or (pecuniary) benefaction:–(to) communicate [used 1x], communication [used 1x], communion [used 4x], distribution [used 1x], contribution [used 1x], fellowship [used 20x].”

 

Koinonia, “a having a common (koinos), partnership, fellowship” denotes:

 

[1] the share which one has IN ANYTHING, a participation, a fellowship RECOGNIZED AND ENJOYED; thus it is used of the common experience and interests of Christian men [and women], Acts 2:42; Galatians 2:9;

 

[2] of participation in the knowledge of the Son of God, 1 Cor. 1:9;

 

[3] of sharing in the realization of the effects of the blood (i.e. the death {death daily to flesh, carrying your cross, denying self, self crucifixion}) of Christ, as set forth by the emblems in the Lord’s Supper (Spiritual Passover), 1 Cor 10:16;

 

[4] of participation in what is derived from the holy Spirit, 2 Cor. 13:14; Phil. 2:1;

 

[5] of participation in the sufferings [passions] of Christ, Phil. 3:10;

 

[6] of the sharing of the resurrection life possessed IN Christ, and so of fellowship with the Father and the Son, 1 John 1:3, 6-7;

 

[7] NEGATIVELY, of the impossibility of “communion” between LIGHT and DARKNESS, 2 Cor. 6:14,

 

[8] fellowship manifested IN ACTS, the PRACTICAL EFFECTS OF FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD,

 

[8a] wrought by the holy Spirit in the lives of the believers as the outcome of faith, Philem. 1:6, and

 

[8b] finding expression in JOINT MINISTRATION TO THE NEEDY, Rom. 15:26; 2 Cor. 8:4, 9:13; Heb. 13:16, and

 

[8c] in the furtherance of the Gospel [of the Kingdom of God] by [spiritual] gifts, Phil. 1:5.

 

(Caps and brackets emphasis are MINE).

 

Let’s see what these words entail from Strong’s GREEK DICTIONARY OF THE NEW TESTAMENT so that we can get a clear picture of what it means to be in partnership with one another:

The MC Part 5 - Worship & Hip-Hop e-Book by Apostle Ricardo Butler http://masterconstructor.webs.com/apps/documents/categories/show/12290

I’m not going to get to heavy in detail about fellowshipping with God and the Five Fold Ministry. I covered much detail about our walk with God as musical artists in The ‘MC’ Part 5 – Worship & Hip-Hop e-Book. And I will cover a lot more about the Five Fold Ministry in The ‘MC’ Part 11 – Davidical Hip-Hop Leadership e-Book, which is far in the future. Hopefully the Lord will come back before then. But what I will cover is a little bit of the apostles and …

Apostolic Fellowship.
