The Apostolic Heretic Series Part 5

The Apostolic Heretic Series Part 5

By Apostle Ricardo Butler

Here we go again as I bring you another top 10 list on what an apostolic heretic is.

Let’s give you the definition as we always do of what an apostolic heretic is.

“The apostolic heretic is Jesus Himself. He is considered a heretic to satan’s kingdom and the world systems. He’s counter cultural.

The FIRST definition of heretic is, “A person who holds controversial opinions, especially one who publicly dissents from the officially accepted dogma of the Roman Catholic Church.”

Jesus was the perfect example of an apostolic heretic to the common belief systems and doctrines of His day.

So going through Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John to study the characteristics of what made Jesus what I am terming an Apostolic Heretic, just simply means: “An apostolic heretic is a person who pioneers a radical lifestyle, mindset, and way of communication from the common or normal way of life during the day and age in which he or she is currently living—he or she is completely counter cultural.”

This is what this future book is about.”Apostle Ricardo ‘Reason’ Butler

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course [spiritual career, calling], I have kept the faith [full persuasion, especially reliance upon Christ for salvation].” (2nd Timothy 4:7).

The Apostolic Heretic Series Part 4

By Apostle Ricardo Butler

With many more series to come we are now on part 4 of the Apostolic Heretic Series.

Many have caught on to the message and what the Apostolic Heretic Series is about as it has piqued their interest! There have been a few others who did not understand it. And yet there are others who thought I was saying that today’s apostles are heretic, which is further from the truth.

So I posted on social media the revealing of WHO and what an Apostolic Heretic is. I posted …

Angelic Help in some Ideas on How to Raise Your Kids

Angelic Help in some Ideas on How to Raise Your Kids

[Read, Study, Understand, Apply, LIVE, and Share YOUR Experience of Luke 1:5-25]

By Apostle Ricardo Butler

John the Baptist’s Dad

There are so many things that can distract us from the direct blueprint that God will have for us in raising up godly children that Love God and Love others. I mean there is work, time with your wife, and the expectations of others or whatever. How about unbelief in the blueprint?

What if you were handed by God the pure answer to every question you ever had on how to raise up your children to be the greatest men, women, parents, business people, ministers, or whatever God has called them to be? Would you stick to that plan? Would you dump the plan?

A Parable from the US Army on How to Hear God

By Apostle Ricardo Butler

(I served in the US Army at my last duty station of Fort Polk, Louisiana with Dining Facility Headquarters and Headquarters Troops, 1st Squadron, 2nd Armor Calvary Regiment from 1998 to 2001 – “Always Forward”)

There are two main principles of hearing God. I am going to use an illustration or teach you the way Christ would; with a parable. In the army we have what we call …

  1. General Orders
  2. Specific Instructions (also called Special Orders)

The Arsenal of Tools that God the Father Gives to His Royal Priesthood

The Arsenal of Tools that God the Father Gives to His Royal Priesthood

By Apostle Ricardo Butler

Hey mentors, equippers, elders, and spiritual parents who are servant leaders in the body of Christ. The Lord has entrusted me, you, and the rest of us out there to help the universal church to be all we can be as well as be successful with His people.

So I want to mention some of the arsenal of Kingdom tools that Father has given us in Christ by the Spirit to be the most effective. It is us we are called to bring up the people of God in the unity of the faith and spirit unto the perfection or spiritual maturity of Christ so that we all may be thoroughly equipped for every good work, ministry, and calling that builds each other up in love as we spread God’s glory and His Kingdom all over the nations through the process called discipleship.

These tools are not only for us as lead ministers to build His holy temple of living stones together for a permanent dwelling place for the Lord, but every believer as a royal priesthood can use these tools as well. We are also called to help them understand how to use these tools by the Spirit as well.

Alright, let’s continue with the next 12 characteristics of what I am terming an apostolic heretic.
