Just what are apostles and prophets and what do they do? Does the Church
even need apostles and prophets today, after all, we have the scriptures?
Are there any alive today? If there are, what gifts has He given them?
Are they a gift given to the Church that we need today? Why do some believers
make claims to be apostles or prophets?
Did you ever ask yourself or other people these questions and other questions
like them? If you have, thats pretty normal. A.W. Tozer once prayed,
Lord, how great is our dilemma! In Thy Presence silence best becomes
us, but love inflames our hearts and constrains us to speak. Were we to
hold our peace the stones would cry out; yet if we speak, what shall we
say? Teach us to know that we cannot know, for the things of God knoweth
no man, but the Spirit of God. Let faith support us where reason fails,
and we shall think because we believe, not in order that we may believe.
In Jesus name, Amen.
The following links contain some articles and answers that we have discovered
in His Word, in His Presence, and experientially. We think because we
believe. We search the scriptures because we believe. We appraise all
things because we believe and we encourage you to also.
As Paul wrote:
I pray that the eyes of your
heart may be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope of His
calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the
saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us
who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength
of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from
the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far
above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name
that is named, not only in this age, but also in the one to come. And
He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head
over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him
who fills all in all. Ephesians 1:18-23
