The Restoration of the Apostles are Sent to Bless and NOT Curse

The Restoration of the Apostles are Sent to Bless and NOT Curse

[Read, Study, Understand, Apply, LIVE, and Share YOUR Experience of Luke 2:21-40]

Apostle Ricardo Butler

With the return of the apostolic gift, anointing, dimension, ministry, office, function, responsibility, role, teaching/doctrine, fellowship, and anything else related to the apostles, there are still many who don’t understand why they are even here.

Many pastors and other church leaders (elders, church staff, board directors, deacons, denominational leaders, etc) still look to them as a threat to whatever they are personally doing in their congregations.

What’s up future leader!

Hello my name is Ricardo Butler!

I’m passionate about helping and equipping emerging Kingdom-minded ministers to be strategic, creative, artistic, innovative, entrepreneurial, and cutting edge problem solving Five Fold Leaders like yourself and to understand how to greatly increase the church’s impact in its work for the Kingdom of God so that your, family, church, ministry, or business result in tangible fruit in God’s Garden!

Throughout the second half of the 2014 leading up to February 2015, I’ve been doing some research among various five fold ministry leaders throughout the Body of Christ.

Integrity in Teaching Uncompromised Truth

Integrity in Teaching Uncompromised Truth

Apostle Ricardo Butler

Have you ever had an older brother or sister who when your parents weren’t around was “in charge?” Or even worse, did you have an older sibling who when your parents weren’t around they seems to make up rules “in the name of mom and dad” just so they could get you to obey them for their benefit?

That’s what is going on in the church when the question of having integrity in teaching the uncompromised truths of the Scripture. I already talked a little bit about “The Restoration of Apostolic Doctrine” in another article. So you can go there to check that out. This will be sort of a part two, but more so with dealing with the heart of the issue for the lack of the apostles’ doctrine.

I Don’t See Much Difference in the Way Christians Live Compared to Others

I Don’t See Much Difference in the Way Christians Live Compared to Others

I was recommended a podcast to listen to by a business brother of mine in Christ named Amos Johnson Jr. over there at the Church for Entrepreneurs.

I think the podcast had something to do with business, but I was interested in some other things that I came across on the website. There was a particular article that caught my attention called, “Seven Common Comments Non-Christians Make about Christians” by Thom Rainer. He is the president and CEO of LifeWay Christian Resources.

This is actually part 4 of 7. You can read the others in the series at:

  1. Christians are against more things than they are for. “It just seems to me that Christians are mad at the world and mad at each other. They are so negative that they seem unhappy. I have no desire to be like them and stay upset all the time.”
  2. I would like to develop a friendship with a Christian. “I’m really interested in what they believe and how they carry out their beliefs. I wish I could find a Christian that would be willing to spend some time with me.”
  3. I would like to learn about the Bible from a Christian. “The Bible really fascinates me, but I don’t want to go to a stuffy and legalistic church to learn about it. I would be nice if a Christian invited me to study the Bible in his home or at a place like Starbucks.”

In today’s article I want to address the third issue, which is, “I Don’t See Much Difference in the Way Christians Live Compared to Others”. And that point he wrote,

“I really can’t tell what a Christian believes because he doesn’t seem much different than other people I know. The only exception would be Mormons. They really seem to take their beliefs seriously.”

Regional Unity Among Leaders Pt 2 A Look from a Family Angle

Regional Unity Among Leaders Pt 2 A Look from a Family Angle

By Apostle Ricardo Butler

I wrote a blog article a few weeks ago called “Regional Unity among Leaders”, where I spoke on a huge need between five fold leaders in regional and local areas.

For some reason I still had this feeling that the post really didn’t touch on the point as I desired nor that reflected the father’s heart.

I had meant to write this article as a part 2 of sorts to that article, but the Lord directed that I write on the subject from a perspective of family rather then on leadership.

Regional Unity among Leaders

Scouting Out Canaan

“God [the Father] spoke to Moses [symbolic for Jesus]: “SEND men [symbolic for apostles] to scout out the country of Canaan [symbolic for the whole world-satan’s kingdom so that it would become God’s Kingdom] that I am giving to the People of Israel [symbolic for the Church of God]. Send one man from each ancestral tribe [‘tribe of their father’—KJV], each one A TRIED-AND-TRUE LEADER in the tribe [symbolic for measure of rule/sphere of influence—REGION].”

“So Moses SENT [like Christ sent the apostles] them off from the Wilderness of Paran at the command of God. All of them were LEADERS in Israel, one from each tribe. These were their names:
