The 5 fold Ministries – Monika Flach

Posted: October 14, 2013 in Foundation on Apostle/ Apostolic, Hearing God's Voice & The Prophetic, The 5 fold Ministries

The 5 fold Ministries: This writings are taken from the book “Training a Prophetic people for the Harvest“, written by Monika Flach. Copying parts of the book for trainings is allowed so we copied some part from this book.

Monika Flach is a passionate and sound preacher of faith. Her desire is to train Christians in discipleship and see them mature and grow until they attain to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. (Ephe 4:13).From 1993-2003 she helped to found and lead a bible school focussing on prayer, worship and the prophetic ministry in Hannover, Germany.

Today her Ministry includes a Training School for team leaders, a Healing Ministry and a Prophetic Apostolic Training Ministry in Europe and Asia (Taken from back page).

Apostles: Apostles are able to restore spiritual houses and buildings. They can either build new spiritual buildings or just make some restoration work or changes in already existing buildings. They have the ability to think in structures and in long-term strategies.

They also have an ability to do spiritual warfare, because they don’t just deal with people. They also have the ability to wage war for a whole region, so that the strongman and the demonic forces have to draw back and the Kingdom of God can be established. (from Page 11)

Prophets: A Prophet (in the office of a prophet) together with the apostle form the war team in the Kingdom to open up the heavenly realm, so that the Kingdom of God can come down to a region and nation. He is not just a seer or futureteller, but has the ability to do warfare to open up the eyes of individuals, of people groups, of regions and nations to see God and the Kingdom. He fights with the word of God. A Prophet is not so much made for prophesying in church mettings, but for bringing in the harvest through churchplanting.

The main Purpose and gifting of an “office prophet” is to bring people closer to Jesus. He has the ability to open up the spiritual senses of the body of Christ and of nations and to help equip the saints for the work in the kingdom. (Ephesians1+4) (Page 43)

The evangelists says: the most important tsk is to reach the lost. Let us all go out. It is enough with shepherding and counselling. The lost are going to hell. They need to know the truth.

The pastor says: Wait! Wait! How dare you! The people are so broken – they would never be a good witness for others. Let us first heal them and deliver them. They need discipleship and training. No, let us prepare them.

The teacher says: It is good, what you say, but you see, the main problem in church is that the people don’t have an understanding of the word. What they need is not just healing and dealing with the past. Come on, they already had more than enough of that. But the real problem is that they have no right understanding about the scriptures. They need the whole pirture of the counsel of God. Let us focus on bible studies – that will equip them better than anything else.

The prophet says: The main problem is that there is no fear of the Lord. People don’t know God as He is. Scripture is fine, but that will make them legalistic. No, they need a personal relationship with Jesus. They must hear his voice daily. Then God himself will heal them and carry them through. they need to be equipped to minister in the gifts of the Holy Spirit and have to learn to live in the invisible Kingdom of God and bring it to the sphere of influence they have.

The apostle says: Now people, all of this is right. But I can see a clear strategy. Everything rises and falls with the strategy. You are only woking with people. But I see the architectural plans of the Kingdom. We must all work together so that we can bring in the harvest. don’t just teach and preach. the problem that I see, is, that we don’t really build something. But the church and the kingdom have to be build strategically.
(Pages 70-71)

(Good to remember that the title of this book is “Training a prophetic people for the Harvest”, therefore “Monika Flack” must have wrote the above as people working in the Harvest field and church planting as we saw what the Apostle says. But then, for strategy itself, the Apostle says “But I can see a clear strategy. Everything rises and falls with the strategy. You are only woking with people. But I see the architectural plans of the Kingdom”.)

The 5 Gifts of Jesus – Ephesians 4
The 5 fold Ministry:

Apostle: “The thumb”: he can easily be in touch with all the other fingers (ministries) and can unite them for work and for the purpose of the Kingdom. He lays the foundation and receives the building plans of the kingdom for a whole region or nation. He can birth not only a family, but a whole people. He is able to wage war for the Kingdom.

Prophet: “The pointing finger”: he points out the heart and the mind and the will and nature of God.

Evangelists: “The middle finger”: he is the “longest finger” and is the one who is most “out there” for the people who don’t know God, yet

Pastor: “The ring finger” (stands for covenant and relationships): he loves the sheep and pastors them, disciples and trains them

Teacher: “The little finger”: he digs into the word in detail, he studies and has the ability to bring the people of God into whole rooms of revelation of the word.
