The Modern Day Apostle

The Apostle never looks to be honored. He looks to honor. He does not care about a title yet walks firmly in his call.

The Apostle never seeks to be served. He serves always.

The Apostle leads by himself first being led by the Holy Spirit.

The Apostle spreads Revival by walking in Revival. He is a Presence seeker always.

The Apostle is a representative of the Holy Spirit. He is a messenger.

The Apostle leads by having relationship with those whom he leads. He loves in all things.

The Apostle restores that which is broken with truth.

The Apostle is a peacemaker who shuns divisions be speaking against that which divides.

The Apostle spreads Gospel truth by walking in the Word of truth, not by good sounding arguments.

The Apostle is an advocate. He is chosen by the Holy Spirit, not by any person.

The Apostle is a missionary. He has a mission. But missionaries are not always apostles.

The Apostle is one who is sent out. But “sent out” has many meanings.

The Apostle is a warrior. Because the Apostle is constantly confronted. He wars with the weapons of the Spirit.

The Apostle is fearless. Because he faces accusations time and again.

The Apostle walks as Christ, so that all who do accuse would be revealed to truth.

The Apostle fathers by himself being fathered by the Spirit. There are no earthly fathers but apostles.

The Apostle walks in the fruits of the Spirit, so that souls might witness true love.

The Apostle always seeks the next leader to minister in to. Because many who would lead have many doors in front of them to choose from. He guides them through the right doors.

The Apostle is a pioneer. He is always on the edge of the unknown, always leading the church into the spiritual by faith.

The Apostle leads the church off the map of what is known into spiritual realities that are formerly unknown, now revealed, yet always aligned with the Word of God.

The Apostle is just as invaluable to today’s church as they were in the first church. It started with 12, the 72, then the generations to follow.

This is who we are. This is where we are going. Step by step.

Footnote: As to gender, there are female apostles as well as male. This call is not gender specific.
Scriptural references: 1 Cor 12:11,28-30, John 15:16, Acts 20:28, 2 Tim 1:11. Eph 2:20, Acts 11:28, 21:10-11, Eph 3:5, 2 Cor 12:12, Acts 8:6-7, Heb 2:3-4. Heb 3:1, Acts 1:26, Gal 1:15-17, 1 Cor 15:7-9, 2 Cor 11:5, Rom 1:1, 2 Cor 8:23, 2 Cor 12:12, Luke 10:1-3.

Biblical examples of Apostles included primarily Paul, Barnabas (Acts 14:4), Silas (1 Thes 2:6), Timothy (1 Thes 2:6) and Titus (Book of Titus). There were first the 12, then the 72, and then generations of apostles that would follow.

After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Luke 10:1-3

False Apostles: 2 Cor 11:13, speak to the importance of right apostleship.

Respectfully but very directly, whomever says that that the office of Apostle does not exist today is absolutely in Biblical error. Such is a Pharisaical argument devoid of the Holy Spirit. Do not align with such a demonic argument.
