Wanna be Apostle:

Posted: August 2, 2015 in Foundation on Apostle/ Apostolic, Wanna be Apostle

As a believers of Jesus Christ we are called to be Apostolic and prophetic in nature, because our Lord Jesus Christ was Apostle as well as a Prophet.

At the same time there will be people who are “Wanna be Apostle”, they will usually be religious leaders, they are people who can create one of the biggest problems in Apostolic reformations and restorations.

While all believers of Christ are called to be Apostolic, having the heart for Advancing the Kingdom of God and love the moves of God, and are also called to be Prophetic, able to hear God for our own self, there will be people who are “Wanna be Apostle”, they will be people who tried to control others in their own ways without the blueprint from heaven for this earth, “Your Kingdom Come, Your will be done”.

Apostles don’t control people, they bring people to the obedient of Christ through the word of truth and present truths.

There is a great tendency for “Wanna be Apostles” to quote the verse “Every knee in heaven and on earth should bow”, and the word, “Jesus Christ is Lord”, to make people submit to them, obey them rather than bring them into the obedient to Christ.

This verse is that, we are to submit ourselves to the Lordship of Christ, and every knee in heaven and on earth and under the earth should bow before the Lord Jesus Christ, declaring, “You are Lord, Your will be done”. And it is also about the power and Authority of Christ, His Supremacy over everything, His Lordship, and that we are to bow down before Him.

This verse is not about man controlling man, neither the Lordship of Christ is about man controlling man, that’s what “Wanna be Apostle” often thought of this verse and the word “Jesus Christ is Lord”.

As a believers of Christ, we are living in the Kingdom of God, and the Kingdom of Christ is where Christ rule and reign as King, “Your Kingdom come, your will be done”, where Christ is placed in the Highest place above all else. True Apostles love to Advance the Kingdom of God, at the same time they place Jesus Christ in the Highest place, they place Him above all else, His Supremacy, His Greatness, His Lordship, they value them. They have a deep conviction that “Jesus Christ is LORD”.

Lion 2

“God exalted Jesus Christ in the Highest place,
And gave Him the name which is above every name,
So that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW,
Of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
And that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is LORD”.
(Phil 2:9-11)
