Revelation of an Apostolic God

    Hebrews 3:1 AMP
    3:1 SO THEN, brethren, consecrated and set apart for God, who share in the heavenly calling,
     [thoughtfully and attentively] consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest Whom we confessed
     [as ours when we embraced the Christian faith].

   The emphasis of New Testament ministry is to be focused on the saving grace
    and redemptive work of Christ relating to His Life, Ministry, Crucifixion, Death, Burial,
    Descent into hell, Resurrection from the dead, Ascension to heaven and Enthronement
    at the right-hand of Father God to eternally rule heaven and earth from the promised
    throne of David.  Christ's ministry is the work of The Apostle and The High Priest.

Jesus Christ was SENT to the earth to accomplish the purposes of Father God.
    He and He alone is the Apostle sent down from heaven
from the Father. 
    No other religion can make this claim.
    All other
religions are made after the hearts and minds of men AND therefore are FALSE!

    Jesus Christ succeeded in His mission! He is ruling today, King of the Kingdom of God,
    the Apostle and High Priest of His Church.

●  What is the Work of The Apostle... Christ's apostolic ministry?
    Apostolic is based on the Greek word apostolos (apo, "from," stello, to
    send"); the act of sending another forth on special appointment to
    represent oneself; a delegate, one sent with full power of attorney to act
    in the place of another, the sender remaining behind to back up the one
    sent.  Apostolic means God sends one to do what He, Himself would do
    if He went. The Greek term apostolos is used 81 times in the scriptures.
    (translates as “apostle”78 times;  as “messenger” 2 times [ 2Cor. 8:33;
    Phil. 2:25] and once as “he that is sent” [John 13:16]   
          "Apostolic" is a word of divine origin. It is Spirit breathed and
           inspired to refer to everything that pertains to Jesus Christ, the
           Anointed One, the Chief Apostle, sent to earth to demonstrate God's
           absolute sovereignty and His inescapable Presence. 
           Thus, we see Him calling out men and sending them on divine
           mission as Apostles of the Lamb, and as Ascension-gift Apostles
           divinely given to the Church.  This act of Assignment and Sending
           is an attribute of our Triune God! 

Hebrews 3:1  KJV
              ...consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;

              Thus, we see Him calling out men and sending them on divine mission
              as Apostles of the Lamb, and as The First Ascension-Gifts of mankind given
              to the Church... apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers.
              Ascension-Gift appointments are commended by the Lord Jesus Himself.  
              The 21st century Church is being exponentially enlarged with these divine
              servants as they train and equip the saints of God for the work of the ministry.
Ephesians 4:12 AMP
              ...the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people),
              [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ's body
              (the church),

              God's sovereign nature, character, wisdom, righteous judgment and purposes
              are centered in creation.  These attributes give identity and validity to His great
              pleasure and blessings toward everything created!
Blessing is the endowment of Increase...Multiplicity!

     The apostolic work of the Son of God began in the very beginning of God's plan
     for creating mankind.  After the fall of Satan from heaven of which we have no measure
     of time, the Holy Spirit was sent to hover or brood over the uninhabitable darkness
     of the waters and void of the once created and habitable earth in which we have evidence
     through fossil remains. The creation is the restoration of earth to a
     Genesis 1:2-3 AMP
     2 The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face
     of the very great deep. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face
     of the waters.
     3 And God said, Let there be light; and there was light..

"Glory of the Lesser Light!"
Full Harvest Moon

      Genesis 1:14-16 AMP
     14 And God said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the
      night, and let them be signs and tokens [of God's provident care], and [to mark] seasons, days,
      and years, [Gen 8:22.]
     15 And let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light upon the earth. And it was so.
     16 And God made the two great lights--the greater light (the sun) to rule the day and the lesser light
      (the moon) to rule the night. He also made the stars.

     In the beginning the WORD of God is revealed in His creative power and apostolic nature.
     "GOD SAID!"  (He spoke and commanded by His sovereignty)
     (Readers, let us observe the divine attributes by revelation of the scriptures of our apostolic God!)
     In Genesis 1:1, the Holy Spirit is sent on a divine mission to accomplish a predetermined Plan
     and Will of the Father who is the Source of all authority and power in heaven and in earth.
     In Genesis 1:2, the WORD representing the creator, the Son of God, speaks and commands the
     unseen world to manifest the Will of the Father!
     The Light is inseparable from the nature of the  Son!
     John 1:1-11  AMP
     1:1 IN THE beginning [before all time] was the Word ( Christ), and the Word was with God,
     and the Word was God Himself. [Isa 9:6.]
     2 He was present originally with God.
     3 All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even
     one thing made that has come into being.
     4 In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men.
     5 And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it
     [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it].
     6 There came a man sent from God, whose name was John. [Mal 3:1.]
     7 This man came to witness, that he might testify of the Light, that all men might believe in it
     [adhere to it, trust it, and rely upon it] through him.
     8 He was not the Light himself, but came that he might bear witness regarding the Light.
     9 There it was--the true Light [was then] coming into the world [the genuine, perfect,
     steadfast Light] that illumines every person. [Isa 49:6.]
    10 He came into the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not
     recognize Him [did not know Him].
    11 He came to that which belonged to Him [to His own--His domain, creation, things, world],
     and they who were His own did not receive Him and did not welcome Him.

    As we can witness by the scriptures, God is manifest in the same dynamics of the New and
    the Old... Christ is the First and the Last, the Alpha and Omega, the First and Everlasting God.
    Jesus is the First born from the dead...
    Colossians 1:15-18 AMP
    15[Now] He is the exact likeness of the unseen God [the visible representation of the invisible];
     He is the Firstborn of all creation.
    16 For it was in Him that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things
    unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist
    through Him [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him.
    17 And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are
    held together).
    [Prov 8:22-31.]
    18 He also is the Head of [His] body, the church; seeing He is the Beginning, the Firstborn
     from among the dead, so that He alone in everything and in every respect might occupy the
     chief place [stand first and be preeminent].

     Let us understand that where Hebrews identifies The Apostle and the Priest, Jesus, Son of God
     is in First standing and preeminent as The First Apostle and The First Priest.  His apostleship as we
     have examined in the scriptures of Genesis originates in the re-creation of the earth, the heavens
     and divine implementation by which to measure life by days, nights and time.  God gave the same
     character traits as He possesses to man and woman in the creation as "Like Image."
     We are destiny lights of Christ to be conformed to His Image!
     Philippians 2:15-16  AMP
    15 That you may show yourselves to be blameless and guileless, innocent and uncontaminated,
    children of God without blemish (faultless, unrebukable) in the midst of a crooked and wicked
    generation [spiritually perverted and perverse], among whom you are seen as bright lights
    (stars or beacons shining out clearly) in the [dark] world,
    16 Holding out [to it] and offering [to all men] the Word of Life...
     Man is charged with a Dominion Mandate.   Adam-man and Adam-female failed to protect
     the mandate through disobedience. Thus, they lost the power to rule over the creation.
     Jesus was SENT on apostolic mission to earth to make a peace treaty between mankind
     and Father God.  His mission was three-fold.
     1.  First, His strategy was to defeat the enemy satan and destroy his works of evil as ruler
          of stealing, destroying and killing.
     2. The Lord Jesus was SENT to reclaim the power of death as one of His major objectives.
     3. The Lord was SENT to establish the New Creature... the Spiritual Church...the New Covenant. 

     The Lord's apostleship is preeminent and His priesthood is recognized in the
     Order of Melchizedek. King David of the united kingdom of Judah and Israel speaks
     prophetically as he is given revelation of God's promise to establish a Son that will reign
     eternally upon David's throne.
     Psalm 110:1-4 AMP
     THE LORD (God) says to my Lord (the Messiah), Sit at My right hand,
     until I make Your adversaries Your footstool.
     [see: Matt 26:64; Acts 2:34; 1 Cor 15:25; Col 3:1; Heb 12:2.]
     2 The Lord will send forth from Zion the scepter of Your strength; rule, then,
     in the midst of Your foes. [see: Rom 11:26,27.]
     3 Your people will offer themselves willingly in the day of Your power, in the beauty of holiness
     and in holy array out of the womb of the morning; to You [will spring forth] Your young men,
     who are as the dew.
     4 The Lord has sworn and will not revoke or change it: You are a priest forever, after the manner
     and order of Melchizedek. [Heb 5:10; 7:11,15,21.]

    {Note: The apostle Peter is given understanding of Psalm 110:1 on the Day of Pentecost
    and proclaims the Truth of the event with perfect accuracy as he explains to the Jews the
    reality of what they are experiencing!
    It is the fulfillment of the prophet Joel 2:28-32 and Psalm 110 whereby Jesus, resurrected and
    ascended is enthroned at the right hand of the Father.  The confirmation of this apostolic
    assignment is the SENDING of the Holy Ghost by Father God upon the people of the
    New Creation, Spiritual Zion, the New Temple of God.

    The New Covenant is ratified in the resurrection of the Lord, His ascension witnessed and
    His confirmation as the inaugurated King by the arrival of the Holy Spirit in the upper room
    evidenced by the drunken stupor and manifested diversity and articulation of unknown
    tongues as tongues or languages were spoken and fully understood by the Jews from
    every nation who where assembled in Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover and the Feast
    of Pentecost. 

    Pentecost or Shavuot has many names in the Bible (the Feast of Weeks, the Feast of Harvest,
    and the Latter First fruits). Celebrated on the fiftieth day after
Passover, Shavuot is traditionally
    a joyous time of giving thanks and presenting offerings for the new grain of the summer wheat
    harvest in Israel.

    The name "Feast of Weeks" was given because God commanded the Jews in
Leviticus 23:15-16,
    to count seven full weeks (or 49 days) beginning on the second day of Passover, and then
    present offerings of new grain to the Lord as a lasting ordinance.
    Acts 2:14-21  AMP
    14 But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed them: You Jews and all
    you residents of Jerusalem, let this be [explained] to you so that you will know and understand;
     listen closely to what I have to say.
    15 For these men are not drunk, as you imagine, for it is [only] the third hour (about 9:00 a.m.)
    of the day;
    16 But [instead] this is [the beginning of] what was spoken through the prophet Joel:
    17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, God declares, that I will pour out of My Spirit upon
    all mankind, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy [telling forth the divine counsels]
    and your young men shall see visions ( divinely granted appearances), and your old men shall
    dream [divinely suggested] dreams.
   18 Yes, and on My menservants also and on My maidservants in those days I will pour out of
    My Spirit, and they shall prophesy [telling forth the divine counsels and predicting future events
    pertaining especially to God's kingdom].
   19 And I will show wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth beneath, blood and fire and
   smoking vapor;  


Profound Total Eclipse of the Moon!
Tuesday, 21 December 2010, the Winter Equinox and the Lunar Eclipse.
The Winter Equinox Red Moon will not happen for another 350 years
    20 The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the obvious day
    of the Lord comes--that great and notable and conspicuous and renowned [day].
    (Note: "Day of the Lord" is a teaching we will be sharing.
    This eclipse is of 2010 is not the declared Day of the Lord.
    We will study the context, content and references of which the "Day of the Lord is directed
    as it pertains to this passage at another writing.)
    21 And it shall be that whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord [invoking, adoring, and
    worshiping the Lord--Christ] shall be saved. [Joel 2:28-32.].

[Note: read Joel 2:32 in its spiritual figurative context, not as a literal translation]
    The outpouring of the Holy Spirit of God came and still comes to dwell within His people.
    The church has been living in Messiah's Day, His ruling millennial reign, for the past
    2000 years.  Multitudes of books and sermons have been built around the suppositions
    that Jesus Christ is coming back to earth to rule for one thousand years.

    God uses One Thousand to express a very extensive expanse of time.
    He does not relate these numbers to a literal specific number.  Symbolic language is used
    through out the scriptures. Here are  two of them to demonstrate His figurative applications
    to express vast numbers.
    Psalm 50:10 (AMP)
    “For every beast of the forest is Mine,
    And the cattle on a thousand hills.
    2 Peter 3:8 (AMP)
    Nevertheless, do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved,
    that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years,
    and a thousand years is like one day.

    Jesus is ruling the nations on the Throne of David. God established it as an Eternal Throne.
    Are we expecting Him to descend to an earthly throne? Would moving His Eternal throne
    to earth be substantiated by a second advent?  Did He Finish His work in His declaration:
    "It is finished?"  Did His death, descent into hell, Glorious Resurrection, Glorious Ascension,
    setting to the Right-Hand of God in His completed work get changed!
    Is the definition for "millennial" a thousand? Well then does God only own the cattle
    on a thousand hills and not all the thousands of cattle on the earth... a number
    to vast to conceptualize?  Why is it then is it that He decrees "every beast of the forest" is His?
    Why does Peter compare "one" to a thousand as the same a thousand is "one?"
    The Spiritual implication points to the fact that all things are in God's timing!     
    He is the Eternal God!  When did He become God and when will He No Longer be God?
    He is the God of the Past, the Present and the Future!  Jesus, Himself declares
    He is the First and the Last... the Alpha and Omega!  He is on His Eternal Throne Today!
    How long will He reign?  What was He doing in the time span before the foundations
    of the world? How long of  time was that?  How long of a time span is the future?
                               ENDLESS ETERNITIES OF THE ETERNITIES!
    "with the Lord one day is like a thousand years,
    and a thousand years is like one day."      
    Ephesians 3:21 (KJV)
    Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus
    throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
    Ephesians 3:21 (AMP)
    to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus
    throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen.

    Literally: of the age of the ages

    Genesis 13:15 (AMP)
    For all the land which you see I will give to you and to your posterity forever.
    Exodus 15:18 (AMP)
    The Lord will reign forever and ever.
    Romans 11:36 (AMP)
    For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things.
    [For all things originate with Him and come from Him; all things live through Him,
    and all things center in and tend to consummate and to end in Him.]
    To Him be glory forever! Amen (so be it).
    Philippians 4:20 (AMP)
    To our God and Father be glory forever and ever (through the endless eternities of the eternities).
    Amen (so be it).
    1 Timothy 1:17 (AMP)
    Now to the King of eternity, incorruptible and immortal, invisible, the only God,
    be honor and glory forever and ever (to the ages of ages). Amen (so be it).

Peter preaches...

The Jewish campaign is behind the church!
    God does not have two agendas. 
He has One plan for mankind! 

    The heresy that God has two plans for the salvation of men originated in the 1800's
    by John Nelson Darby.  God does not have a plan to treat 21st century Jews differently
    than all other men on planet earth!  He closed out the Old Covenant worship in 70 AD.
    He is not going to re-install Jesus on an earthly throne.

All who believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God are One; the New Creation,
    the Perfect Man, the Kingdom of Israel, the fulfillment of promise of Abraham
    and of David. 
      These scriptures are to the JEW and the GENTILE:

      Galatians 3:26-29
AMP  Abraham's SEED:
      26 For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith.
      27 For as many [of you] as were baptized into Christ [into a spiritual union and communion
      with Christ, the Anointed one, the Messiah] have put on (clothed yourselves with) Christ.
      28 There is [now no distinction] neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free,
      there is not male and female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
      29 And if you belong to Christ [are in Him Who is Abraham's Seed], then you are Abraham's
      offspring and [spiritual] heirs according to promise.
      Romans 2:28-29 
      28 For he is not a [real] Jew who is only one outwardly and publicly, nor is [true] circumcision
      something external and physical.
      29 But he is a Jew who is one inwardly, and [true] circumcision is of the heart, a spiritual
      and not a literal [matter]. His praise is not from men but from God.
      2 Samuel 7:12-16 
  David's SEED:
      12 "When your days are fulfilled and you rest with your fathers, I will set up your seed after you,
      who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom.
      13 He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.
      14 I will be his Father, and he shall be My son.
      16 And your house and your kingdom shall be established forever before you.
       Your throne shall be established forever."
      Daniel 7:13-14 
      13 I saw in the night visions, and behold, on the clouds of the heavens came one like a Son of man,
      and He came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him.
      14 And there was given Him [the Messiah] dominion and glory and kingdom,
     that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him
       His dominion is an everlasting dominion which shall not pass away, and His kingdom
       is one which shall not be destroyed.

       The disciples of Christ called to be divinely SENT as eye witness apostles were Jews.
       Acts 1:6 
       6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time
       restore again the kingdom to Israel?

       (Note:  The Kingdom of Israel is within us the hope of Glory!
       Jesus is the King of the Jews. God is not a respecter of persons... In Christ! 
       The Kingdom is in believers, the sons and daughters of spiritual Zion the city of God! 
       God's peace treaty through His Son is offered to all mankind!)

       Isaiah 57:19-21
       19 I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near,
       saith the LORD; and I will heal him.
       20 But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire
       and dirt.
       21 There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.

       Acts 2:39 
       For the promise [of the Holy Spirit] is to and for you and your children, and to and for all that
       are far away, [even] to and for as many as the Lord our God invites and bids to come to Himself.
       [Isa 57:19; Joel 2:32.]

      Acts 1:7-9
       7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father
       hath put in his own power. 
      [Note: Jesus is talking about the Kingdom of God,
      It was 10 days when the Kingdom was Sent to earth to abide in the New Creation...
      God the Holy Ghost, giving comfort and confirming that the Lord was on His eternal throne as
      promised to David!  God's promises through the prophets of old were now complete and sealed!]

      8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall
      be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost
      part of the earth.
      9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received
      him out of their sight.
      Daniel 7:13
      I saw in the night visions, and behold, on the clouds of the heavens came one like a Son of man,
      and He came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him.

      The Jew and the Gentile are ONE!  God is not planning to restore the Old system of worship
      given in the Mosiac Law... governed by the Law of Sin and Death.  He is not planning to
      establish a physical throne for His Son back upon the earth.

      Ephesians 1:18-23 
     18 By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the
      hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints
      (His set-apart ones),
(Note; The Jew and the Gentile are ONE! in Christ!)
      19 And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and
      surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working
      of His mighty strength,

      20 Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own]
      right hand in the heavenly [places],
      21 Far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named
      [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and in this world, but also in the
      age and the world which are to come.
      22 And He has put all things under His feet and has appointed Him the universal and supreme
      Head of the church [a headship exercised throughout the church], [Ps 8:6.]
      23 Which is His body, the fullness of Him Who fills all in all [for in that body lives the full measure
      of Him Who makes everything complete, and Who fills everything everywhere with Himself].
     Question: Is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit so weak that they need to
                         SEND Jesus back to do work that He has already accomplished?
    Answer:     He has made the Church His instrument to reign and rule in the earth to do the works
                      of the ministry. 
    Question:  Whose ministry? 
                      Christ's ministry!  He lives in us! 
                      We are His agents, His emissaries, His ambassadors!
                      We are the temple of Almighty God! 
                      We are the sons and daughters!
                      We are to reign with Him!  Today! ( Not a postponement of 2000 years and counting)

   Hebrews 3:12-14 
   12[Therefore beware] brethren, take care, lest there be in any one of you a wicked, unbelieving
   heart [which refuses to cleave to, trust in, and rely on Him], leading you to turn away and desert
   or stand aloof from the living God.
   13 But instead warn (admonish, urge, and encourage) one another
 every day, as long as it is called Today,
   that none of you may be hardened [into settled rebellion] by the deceitfulness of sin [by the
   fraudulence, the stratagem, the trickery which the delusive glamor of his sin may play on him].
  14 For we have become fellows with Christ (the Messiah) and share in all He has for us,
   if only we hold our first newborn confidence and original assured expectation [in virtue of which
   we are believers] firm and unshaken to the end.

    Question:  Do you see or hear a claim that Jesus is coming back to do the work that He has SENT
                         for the Church to do?  To be SENT in apostolic power?

   Answer:     Dispensationalist would have us shaking in our boots at every earthquake,
                     every tyrannical regime who threatens other nations, every terrorist attack,
                     every change of government heads, every wind of doctrine that is carried by
                     unsound teachers looking into the newspaper, television and Internet news thread
                     proclaiming the devil has won and Jesus is coming back quickly.  By default,
                     they declare a message that the Church of Jesus Christ is a weak church and must
                     be taken out of this perverse generation.  "Get ready! Jesus is coming to save you!
                     The prophetic voice of God is saying escape, escape.. this earthly plain!
                     Jesus needs to come back to rescue the Church! All the woes of this self-centered
                     perverse world has over-taken the Church.  The Church is without power!  Help! "

                     Do a study on John Nelson Darby who not only published and promoted the doctrines
                     of dispensationalism, but also,"refined and promoted" the teaching of a "double rapture.
                     The Bible attests to One "rapture!"  [see: Last Days of the Church Age? Inner Chamber]
     John Nelson Darby was intent on writing His interpretation of the Holy
      The false teachings of dispensationalism were inserted by John Nelson Darby 180 years ago
      whereby he introduced two classes of people of God in a scheme to deal separately with the
      Jew and the Gentile. It is heresy.  God has made us ONE BODY!
      In the Church, a demon is blamed for everything!   This, too, is Heresy! 
      The Church is steeped in demonology!  Witchcraft is practiced in unlimited bounds! 
      Gossip runs rampart in the Church doing exactly what the 'father of lies" has purposed...
      lie, kill, steal, destroy.
      The first words out of the mouth of multitudes in the Church is
      "Look at what the devil has done!"
     "The devil made me do it!"   "The devil... The devil... the devil..
      Let's set the record straight!  The devil is not omnipresent!
      Ok, I have vented!   So did the Lord at the falsehoods of the Jewish leadership!
      One day, enough was enough!  Money changers were allowed to establish their presence
      in the temple by the religious leaders. They were charging a usury on the various currency exchanges.

      Mark 11:15 (AMP)
      And they came to Jerusalem. And He went into the temple [area, the porches and courts]
      and began to drive out those who sold and bought in the temple area, and He overturned
      the [four-footed] tables of the money changers and the seats of those who dealt in doves;

Do you recall both He and John the baptist used a keen term for them that echo's of an
      event in the Garden of Eden...

      Matthew 23:32-35 
KJ V   Jesus spoke:
      32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
      33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
      34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some
      of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues,
       and persecute them from city to city:
      35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood
      of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between
      the temple and the altar.

John the baptist...
      Luke 3:7 
       Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him,
       O generation of vipers,
       who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

     Question:  When you confess with your mouth are you SENDING?
Answer:    Yes, to confess with your mouth is an apostolic action!
     Your confession is empowered by the Holy Spirit and the power in the repentant
     heart releases you from the hold of darkness for a miracle regeneration of your
     spirit man.  God the Holy Spirit then translates you out of the kingdom of darkness
     into the Kingdom of Light of Father God's dear Son, Jesus Christ! 
     Romans 10:8-13  AMP
    8 But what does it say? The Word (God's message in Christ) is near you, on your lips
    and in your heart; that is, the Word (the message, the basis and object) of faith which
    we preach, [Deut 30:14.]
    9 Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart
    believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will
    be saved.
   10 For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ) and so is
    justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses (declares
    openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms [his] salvation.
   11 The Scripture says, No man who believes in Him [who adheres to, relies on, and trusts in
    Him] will [ever] be put to shame or be disappointed.
   12[No one] for there is no distinction between Jew and Greek.

    The same Lord is Lord over all [of us] and He generously bestows His riches upon all who
    call upon Him [in faith].
   13 For everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord [invoking Him as Lord] will be saved.


Romans 10:14-16  AMP
   14 But how are people to call upon Him Whom they have not believed [in Whom they have
    no faith, on Whom they have no reliance]? And how are they to believe in Him [adhere to,
    trust in, and rely upon Him] of Whom they have never heard?
    And how are they to hear without a preacher?
   15 And how can men [be expected to] preach unless they are sent? As it is written,
    How beautiful are the feet of those who bring glad tidings! [How welcome is the coming
    of those who preach the good news of His good things!]  [Isa 52:7.]
   16 But they have not all heeded the Gospel; for Isaiah says, Lord, who has believed
    (had faith in) what he has heard from us?    

    The Apostles of the Lamb and the Early Church Ascension-gift apostles
    such as Paul & Barnabas fulfilled their apostolic missions!

    Hear what the Lord spoke which confirms His giving of Ascension-gift men to the Church:
    They are divinely called into service and are SENT!
    Acts 9:13-16 AMP
    13 But Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard many people tell about this man, especially
    how much evil and what great suffering he has brought on Your saints at Jerusalem;
    14 Now he is here and has authority from the high priests to put in chains all who call upon
    Your name.
    15 But the Lord said to him, Go, for this man is a chosen instrument of Mine to bear My name
     before the Gentiles and kings and the descendants of Israel;
     16 For I will make clear to him how much he will be afflicted and must endure and suffer for
     My name's sake.

    Now hear Paul confirm His appointment and His being SENT:
    Romans 15:16-17  AMP
    In making me a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles. I act in the priestly service of the Gospel
    (the good news) of God, in order that the sacrificial offering of the Gentiles may be acceptable
    [to God], consecrated and made holy by the Holy Spirit.
    17 In Christ Jesus, then, I have legitimate reason to glory (exult) in my work for God
    [in what through Christ Jesus I have accomplished concerning the things of God].

    Provision was made in the atonement, the blood sacrifice of the flesh of the Lord Jesus unto death
    for the unity of both Jew and Gentile to come into the Apostolic Kingdom of God as one nation as
    kings and priests unto God, (Rev 11:9) men from the races and tribes and languages and nations
    as born-again spiritual sons of obedience who love and worship God in spirit and truth.

    The resurrection conquered the sting of death.  Eternal life is the reward of the free gift of salvation
    through the mandated Gospel of Jesus Christ!  All are to repent and come into right relationship
    with God.  Jesus gave mankind a peace that passes all understanding.
    Why would God extend a treaty of peace to sinful and rebellious mankind? 
    John 3:16 is the source to God's answer to this question!  He loves all of mankind!
    Father God hates evil and has made a way to exit out of the influence of the prince of the demonic
    kingdom of darkness.  Father God offers His LIGHT of Christ in Truth, Life and the Spirit
    as His peace treaty
    James 1:17-18  NKJV Bible Translation
    17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights,
    with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
    18 Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits
    of His creatures.

    His treaty demands a total surrender and a commitment to engage in His training program
    to learn of the culture of the Kingdom of His Christ.

    It is God who initiates the apostolic acts.. He is the SENDER... Only the Lord can draw out,
    commend and anoint for service by the abiding presence and work of the Holy Ghost.
    Men can only recognize that which the Lord has done in an individual's life!
    Men cannot ordain spiritual endowments. The Holy Ghost ordains with His empowerment
    of the Gifts of the Spirit.
    Men can release anointing and divine transference or impartation by the laying on of hands and
    exercise of faith. Faith then can be spoken by proclamation or decree as uttered in exercise
    of the Gifts of the Spirit.   Men of God (non-gender) may witness and license that others may know
    of the witnessed work of the Spirit in the life and ministry of one who hears and responds to the
    call of the Lord to a ministry office appointment.
    Have you ever been asked these questions:
    ●  What is apostolic ministry?
    ●  What did the Lord Jesus Christ understand about Who He was
        and about His Apostolic Mission?
    ●  What does it mean that the Church is to be apostolic?
    ●  What is the authentic apostolic faith Jesus Christ originally entrusted
         to the apostles and revealed in the Scriptures?

     Apostolic ministry is well defined by the New Testament not only in words but by deeds.
     Let us review those whom are identified as apostles carrying a definite function of the calling:
     Matt 10:2-8 AMP
     2 Now these are the names of the Twelve apostles (special messengers):
     first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James son of
     Zebedee, and John his brother;
     3 Philip and Bartholomew [Nathaniel]; Thomas and Matthew the tax
     collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus [Judas, not Iscariot];
     4 Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.
     5 Jesus sent out these Twelve, charging them, Go nowhere among the
     Gentiles and do not go into any town of the Samaritans;
     6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
     7 And as you go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand!
     8 Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons
     [Note; The Sending into this mission of Christ's... as apostolic teams...
     were before His enthronement and before the out-pouring of the Holy Ghost!
     On the Day of Pentecost, Peter recognized the Kingdom of God had been initiated!
     Before the enthronement Jesus spoke of things at 'hand meaning near"
     After the enthronement the Church was empowered and the Kingdom
     became "NOW." The Day of enthronement announced the reign of Christ,
     the Day of Messiah's reign established on the eternal throne of David.
     The Church must grasp this reality!  We must see into this revelation
     proclaimed by Peter!]
     (Commissions, duties, and power:  Matt. 10; 28:19-20; Mk 3:14-15; 6:7-13;
     16:15-20; Lk. 9:1-5; 24:47-53; Jn. 20:21-23; 21:15-19; Acts 1:4-8)

     (Note:  The Apostles of the Lamb,  Matthias the chosen replacement of Judas Iscariot's
     portion (office) in the "apostolate," and the addition of Ascension-gift apostles are all called
     and commended by Christ)
     Acts 1:23-26 NKJV
     23 And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
     24 And they prayed and said, "You, O Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which of these two
     You have chosen
     25 to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell,
     that he might go to his own place."
     26 And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias.
     And he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

    Matthias ( Acts 1:26) chosen as one who had been with the Lord from the
    time of His baptism also traveled with the apostles. Jesus formed and taught his
    chosen (12) twelve with whom He spent very specific time in fellowship and communion.
    This form of teaching, and communion established the "apostolate."
    Acts 2:42 (AMP)
    And they steadfastly persevered, devoting themselves constantly to the instruction
    and fellowship of the apostles, to the breaking of bread [including the Lord’s Supper]
    and prayers.

    This assembling (inclusion) was the "office," "position of portion," "the appointment" to oversee
    the function and demonstration of the Kingdom upon His departure back to the Father.
    They were assigned as "forerunners, vanguards, apostles" with the vision of the Master
    Teacher, The Apostle,The High Priest, The "Cornerstone of the Church to be Built."
    They were the Apostolic-Prophetic
builders using the 'blueprint' (the foundation) of Christ,
    "the pattern Son." 
    Others also traveled as disciples but were not recognized as the Chosen to whom
    He would closely tend, keep and protect until the empowerment of the 120 twenty waiting
    for the promise of the Holy Spirit were anointed!  
    Acts 1:20-26 AMP
    20 For in the book of Psalms it is written, Let his place of residence
    become deserted and gloomy, and let there be no one to live in it; and
    [again], Let another take his position or overseership. [Ps 69:25; 109:8.]
    21 So one of the [other] men who have accompanied us [apostles] during
    all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
    22 From the baptism of John at the outset until the day when He was
    taken up from among us--one of these men must join with us and
    become a witness to testify to His resurrection.
    23 And they accordingly proposed (nominated) two men, Joseph called
    Barsabbas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
    24 And they prayed and said, You, Lord, Who know all hearts ( their
    thoughts, passions, desires, appetites, purposes, and endeavors),
    indicate to us which one of these two You have chosen
    25 To take the place in this ministry and receive the position of an
    apostle, from which Judas fell away and went astray to go [where he
    belonged] to his own [proper] place.
    26 And they drew lots [between the two], and the lot fell on Matthias; and
    he was added to and counted with the eleven apostles (special

    As with the appointments of the (12) Apostles of the Lamb... Ascension-gift
    ministries were appointed as called and commended by the Lord Jesus Himself.
    Ephesians  4:10-11 AMP
    10 He Who descended is the [very] same as He Who also has ascended
    high above all the heavens, that He [His presence] might fill all things
    (the whole universe, from the lowest to the highest).
    11 And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us]
    some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired
    preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel,
    traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and
    These ascension -gift apostles are specifically named in the scriptures.
    Some consider that the references to others who worked with the named apostles
    count 70.  This is a supposition!  Definitely they were ascension-gift team workers.
    Barnabas  (1 Cor. 9:5-6; Acts 13:1-3; 14:4, 14; Gal. 2:9)
    Andronicus & Junia (Rom. 16:7)
    Apollos (1 Cor. 4: 6-9)
    James, the Lord’s brother (Gal. 1:19; 2:9; James 1:1)
    Timothy and Silas  (1 Thess. 1:1; 2:6)
    Titus (2 Cor. 8:23)
    Epaphroditus  (Phil. 2:25)
    Paul  (Gal: 1:1; 2:8)
    Galatians 1:1 AMP    PAUL, AN apostle--[special messenger appointed and
    commissioned and sent out] not from [any body of] men nor by or
    through any man, but by and through Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and
    God the Father, Who raised Him from among the dead--

    Christ continues to call and commend Ascension-gift apostles to the service of the Church!
    The 21st Century Church is being exponentially enlarged with divinely called ascension-gift
    servants to train and equip the saints of God for the work of the ministry.

    Ephesians 4:12-13 AMP
    12 His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints
    (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering
    toward building up Christ's body (the church),
    13[That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the
    comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God,
    that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of
    personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ's
    own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ
    and the completeness found in Him.
    To understand true apostolic ministry today, or the fellowship of the apostles we must
    understand that all true apostolic ministry is initiated out of the Lord Jesus Christ's apostolate.
    He ordained and divinely called the 5-fold ministry to His Body.
    The Gospels and the Letters of the New Testament of the eye witness apostles and
     the ascension-gift apostles give us insight into who the Lord Jesus Christ is and why He came
     to earth... the One sent by the Father of Heaven, the Father (source) of physical and spiritual Light.

    James 1:17-18 (AMP)
    Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above;
    it comes down from the Father of lights [the Creator and Sustainer of the heavens],
    in whom there is no variation [no rising or setting] or shadow [a]cast by His turning
    [for He is perfect and never changes].
    18 It was of His own will that He gave us birth [as His children] by the word of truth,
    so that we would be a kind of first fruits of His creatures [a prime example of what He created
    to be set apart to Himself—sanctified, made holy for His divine purposes].
