Two Parts of God’s Whole Plan
The re-commissionings of Mark 16 and Matthew 28 are two parts of a whole. All we have been doing is Mark 16. It’s all we really could do until now. The reason is because we did not have apostles and prophets who knew who they were and were comfortable in their roles. You cannot do Matthew 28 without apostles and prophets. You only need evangelists, pastors, and teachers to fulfill Mark 16. That’s what you need to get people saved, healed and delivered. You don’t have to have apostles and prophets to have growing congregations full of healthy Christians that love each other and have healthy families. We’ve been doing that for a loooong time. You can only do Matthew 28 when you begin to steward the earth and disciple nations and transform nations into those that are Kingdom-thinking and Kingdom-principled. You can only do that with apostles and prophets.
“And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you.’” (Matthew 28:18-20a;NKJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Call for those anointed by God as apostles and prophets to recognize and step into their roles.
Ask the Lord to lovingly hold back those that call themselves apostles and prophets and are not. It causes confusion when people title themselves.
Thank the Lord for the work of the pastors, teachers and evangelists. Bless those you know by name. We would not be where we are without them! They are typically tireless in their love for the lost and the saints, for families, and for the healing and deliverance for all these.
Now, see all five giftings as needed and welcome on the scene now! Call the God-ordained five-fold into their places. Call them into congregations, into cities, into regions. Call them forth, in Jesus’ name.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, we call for the true five-fold apostles and prophets to realize who they really are and we ask that they would welcome their places in the Body of Christ. We ask that You gently and lovingly help those who have titled themselves as apostles and prophets to humble themselves and embrace their true place of anointing. We thank You, Lord, for the pastors, teachers, and evangelists. We have needed them and still need them! Strengthen them and grace them to walk in a new power and authority, together with the other five-fold gifted ones. We call them all into their places within churches, cities and regions. In Jesus’ name, amen.
We decree that the apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers will operate together for Kingdom transformation of our nation!
