Evangelism/Mission – Now it’s time for you to step out and outreach. There is a time of “tarrying” before “going”. At this point you will take all that you have learned and use it to draw glory to God, present the Kingdom, teach people about Christ, and bring them into the fold.

Latin Apostolic Invasion and Kingdom Revolution By Apostle Tim Early
Latin Apostolic Invasion and Kingdom Revolution By Apostle Tim Early

By Dr. Tim and Theresa Early
FAP International {Eph. 2:20-22}

There is a groan from the throne {Revelation 4th and 8th chapters} and a release from the High Priest {Hebrews 3:1} for a major reformational movement of the apostolic and prophetic dimension throughout the Latin Communities of the world.

You may notice well that there are parallels in both the natural and the spiritual regarding the Latin community, as we observe their vastly growing Mega-success and tremendous contribution to the social streams and moving and shaking of today. From journalism, politics, entertainment, economics, religion, science, engineering, manufacturing, private sector and more to creative inventions and beyond, there is something brewing in the international Hispanic – Latin communities giving hint of an even greater arising of apostolic and prophetic revolution that shall reshape the nations through a powerful spirit of evangelism, and apostolic reformation …

Power over the Nations - Casting Down Imaginations By Apostle Tim Early
Power over the Nations – Casting Down Imaginations By Apostle Tim Early

By Apostle Tim Early

According to 2 Corinthians 10:5 the spiritual authority of the saints is to cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the intimate knowledge {or intimate knowing} of God, bringing into captivity every thought into the obedience of Christ. However, there are other important considerations of this same passage.

On a play of words, I would like to bring to mind the term “Imagination” and review it like this, that “Imagination” carries two distinctly important terms. One is “Image,” and the other is “Nation.” Together, it could be paraphrased as “A Nation of Images.”

I bring you the final definition in the series of some of my favorite definitions of the five fold ministry. Most of them have come from Apostle Wolfgang Simson and his The House Church Book.

In this message we going to switch it up a bit, because there seems to be a confusion about the functions or differences between an Evangelist, a Missionary, and an Apostle. These three roles are not the same thing, and one of them is not even part of the five fold ministry!

Then there is the other extreme that all our reach efforts are actually Evangelistically lead instead of Apostolically and Prophetically spearheaded. If anything the Evangelist aids in what God has set first and second on the Chief Cornerstone—Christ.

So let’s see what’s going on in all this mess.

Seven Common Comments Non-Christians Make about Christians
Seven Common Comments Non-Christians Make about Christians

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 7 of 7. You can read the others in the series at:

Leading the Family of God from God’s Perspective

By Apostle Ricardo Butler

I want to start with the Word of God.

ALL Elders (Five Fold Ministers/Leaders) are Spiritual Parents, Not Just the Apostle

The Scriptures say,

“And when they had ORDAINED THEM ELDERS IN EVEY CHURCH and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed. For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ORDAIN ELDERS IN EVERY CITY, as I had appointed thee.” (Acts 14:23 & Titus 1:5).

“Rebuke not an ELDER, but ENTREAT [encourage] HIM AS A FATHER; and the younger men as brethren [brothers]; [ENTREAT or encourage] THE ELDER WOMEN AS MOTHERS; the younger as sisters, with all purity.” (1st Timothy 5:1-2).

“I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake. I write unto you, FATHERS [elders are fathers and mothers], because ye have known Him [the Father] that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father. I have written unto you, FATHERS, because ye have known Him [the Father] that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the Word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.” (1st John 2:11-14).

“Honor thy father and thy mother [ORDAINED ELDERS are fathers and mothers]: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Children, obey your PARENTS [elders are fathers and mothers; PARENTS] IN THE LORD: FOR [Gk: ‘BECAUSE’] THIS IS RIGHT. Honor thy father and mother [ORDAINED ELDERS are fathers and mothers]; (which is the FIRST commandment WITH PROMISE;) that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. And, ye fathers [ORDAINED ELDERS are fathers and mothers], provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up [train up a children] in the nurture and admonition of the Lord [in the WAY (Christ is the WAY) they should God and when they are old (spiritually mature, ELDERS) they will not depart from the Father].” (Matthew 19:19 & Ephesians 6:1-4).

Discipleship or Sonship?

Did you know that the words “disciple” or “disciples” are no longer used after the Book of Acts? The words are not used in the book of Romans in the New Testament/Covenant or any book after that. As a matter as fact the last time both words are used were written in the same verse.

The Apostolic Heretic Series Part 2 More Characteristics

By Apostle Ricardo Butler

We are on the second part of a series of studies on what an apostolic heretic is. This was birth from a previous post I did called, “I WAS AFRAID!!!” and “Hypocrite or Heretic: Which is Better to be?”. Also you can also check out The Apostolic Heretic Series Part 1 as well.

Remember, I defined an apostolic heretic as,

“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 series was birth out of a feeling I had within myself to hold back who I truly am because I have been a people pleaser rather then a servant of Christ.

While people pleasing might be beneficial to the crowds for a season and temporal, it doesn’t help anyone ultimately in the long run. But on the other hand, being an apostolic heretic will provoke hatred and anger from those same crowds, it is pleasing to the Father and has an even greater benefit from God to those who hate the apostolic heretic.
