They ministered in apostolic power and turned the known world upside down. The book is called, The Acts of the Apostles. This Book will help pastors place themselves and their churches into a position to shift. It will give them the characteristics and ingredients of an apostolic ministry, including the steps they need to take to strengthen the local work. When a leader shifts into an apostolic position, the demands upon this anointing will increase substantially. As mentioned earlier, we are now living in a time of restoration.
This is unscriptural and grieves the Holy Spirit. We have violated God's order and have suffered for it. The result is that we have many pastors trying to build and plant churches that require an apostolic anointing, and they do not have the necessary grace to succeed. The result is many small, weak churches that cannot properly manifest the power of the kingdom of God. On the other hand, we have seen many leaders identified as "pastors" who have planted and built strong churches, which are apostolic functions.
This is where we must draw the line. We can choose to have all things appear good and not follow God, and because of the fear of controversy, watch others run the race and finish their course, without participating. Would you rather live long and have the acceptance of men, but never achieve your purpose in life? Or would you rather live and accept controversy like Jesus, Moses, or David, and achieve your purpose in life? With controversy, they ran the race and they fulfilled their course. We must employ all courage necessary to make choices today that will determine our placement in this prophetic dispensation and in eternity before God.
