The Lord is restoring apostolic fullness to His church. Apostles are being moved around, and many that have been hidden from view will be brought into the light for the world to see. Many that have been used of God in past moves are going home and the Lord is bring forth those that have been sharpened again and again for His purposes. Apostolic fullness is what I am hearing the Lord say to His church. God is setting His house in order. First the apostles, then the prophets, then the evangelists, pastors and teachers. Each important in this last move of God, but God is saying the apostle needs to be in place for the rest of the body to function. All things put into His Divine order. God is a God of order and the body is not complete without the mature apostle functioning in the body of Christ. There will seem a lot of confusion as those that have been in the limelight refuse to move but God is going to move them to their proper position. Pastors will be shifted. Each one of those in the five fold ministry will be moved for His purposes so that they are properly aligned.
God is looking for and coming for a church who is a bride that has her house in order. The apostle has an assignment that no other can fulfill and the church will remain in her immature state until we see the full restoration of apostolic ministry to the church. The older will teach the younger as Paul did with Timothy and there will be those that are fathered and mothered so that they will come to the place of maturity. Time spent in the body of Christ does not necessarily represent ones years of spiritual maturity. Spiritual sons and daughters will be born, taught, corrected, loved and matured in the faith so that the end time harvest will be brought in.
The enemy has sought to abort many of those called early in life so that their destiny will not be fulfilled, but as you seek My face for them they will come into the Kingdom, be raised up and used by Me. Pray for those that are called for My Kingdom purposes, daily, that the call of God will be fulfilled in their life. Pray for the fivefold ministry. Pray for the believer and the non believer that all things might be fulfilled. Pray for the nations that labourers are sent into the harvest field as directed by Me and that a mighty harvest of souls come in. Pray that labours are sent with the proper equipping so that they might equip others in the nations of the world. Bring them in. Seek Me and My purposes and wait on Me and then respond to the call of My Spirit. Wait on Me, seek me and bring them in. The Lord is setting His house in order.
11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. Ephesians 4: 11-16 (NKJV)
