Although some pride themselves on their independence, many long for accountable relationships. In particular, their heart cry is for a fathering style of relationship, where they can be cared for Pastorally, as well as mentored in the development of gifts and practical skills for their ministry.
Sadly there are few 'fathers' in ministry.
But in the New Testament, one of the ways in which an apostle served churches was as a father or older brother. Giving wise counsel with relationship, the apostles carried a sense of responsibility in prayer and care for the churches that they had planted. It is in this 'fathering' context, that David Devenish contends that the role of the apostle needs to be restored.
This groundbreaking book will help equip emerging apostles and encourage them to develop their gifting in planting churches, reaching previously un-reached people groups and transforming culture in cities and nations, whilst still maintaining the biblical emphasis on family relationships, particularly the continuing need for fathers. His assessment of the role of the apostle today is detailed and includes a good mix of Biblical material with personal anecdotes from his extensive experience.
My feelings were mixed about this book. I also found the style a little too dense at times to be easily readable. This product is also listed in the following departments: Church Resources Sale department. To order by phone - pm Monday to Friday.

Just like the apothecary or compound anointing and spices are made, so is the making of the corporate anointing. For example - Paul Yongi Cho and his church in South Korea seem to take this approach extremely successfully - and there is a church that affects not just the community but the country and the world! I was really interested to find a very recent video of a short interview with Charles Simpson on the question of why mega churches don't affect communities - but disciples do. Amazing things don't happen just because of a great idea. In doing so this review frames and organizes the existing CIP literature, identifies key strengths of the model, addresses key limitations of the model, and outlines future research opportunities that would benefit from adopting a CIP perspective. He is followed by France, Women , p.
The general picture among many is to dream of having a mega-assembly, and in the United States, a mega-assembly consists of at least people. Even now, a number of brethren are in pursuit to growing a large single entity in one locality across town, and if the Lord says the same, amen and amen. But in the realm of the Antioch pattern, there will be more emphasis of receiving and sending of leaders, activating the saints into their eternal purpose, as oppose to the idea of having all ministries to remain under one roof for a very long period of life.
Many traditional paradigms will seek for a larger scales church attendance just because so many are in existence, but the building beloved is not the problem. In the purest sense, present truth apostolic paradigms will help to empty the house out in the right way at times, in the right time, and through the right means.
This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. Corporate vision, global, regional, geographical, local, and trans-local, one vision, one purpose, one plan, and one corporate destiny, no matter where you are, or what church you belong to. God has but one plan and one purpose, and one church in many locations.
He does not see thousands of scattered entities called church, he sees through the eyes of His purpose and plan for each region. A wise man will hear, and will increase in learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsel. Proverbs Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding.
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting get understanding. Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out. Of the children of Issachar The scriptures mentioned confirm the encouraging need for saints to understand. Understanding simply means "to separate and distinguish," and this is the basis of chapter two.
Further note, there is implication here of understanding the true nature of a thing through wisdom and revelation. When we say "Present Truth," this is taken from 2 Peter which confirms what the Holy Spirit is now saying to assemblies. The same is understood with 1 John concerning the old and new commandment. Both are the same, but the difference is in revelation knowledge and illumination.
For illumination of the Holy Scriptures is not addition to scripture, but new meaning. Illumination is the Spirit of God shedding light upon the written word, much like a rhema or quickening word. Now, illumination serves the interest of our discussion in chapter two, and we shall begin by examining various governmental kingdom apostolic principles pertaining to the apostolic dimension. Some of these present truths definitions, and characteristics are as follows In present truth language, paradigms are new patterns in the church, or something God is showing us in both the Spirit and in the natural.

Whether it is the Spirit of God revealing patterns of restoration, or the last years of reformation from Martin Luther to now, paradigms witness something for which God has done, is doing, or wants to manifest in his church. In the principle of paradigms, there seems to be a new wave and pattern of movement in the global kingdom community, at least something of which the Holy Spirit is reforming our mind and mentality back to. The real restoration is not as if what God has done in times past has ceased. Rather, the reconfiguration of perceptions and mindsets towards what God has always been doing.
For the Lord, nor his Holy Spirit, needs any restoration. But our hearts and minds must become new things in order to manifest the changes he is bringing in the earth.
In truth, the Holy Spirit is not only showing us new and developing patterns, but is taking the church into these new realms, thresholds, and dimensions of corporate glory. Hebrews ; Daniel ; , 27; Revelation ; Isaiah From prophetic presbyteries, apostolic teams, spiritual fatherhood, to covenant relationships, the key to establishing seasoned, proven, fruitful, and mature ministry must carry this three-fold principle. The corporate anointing has to do with the church or assembly being one body and many members, not the so-called senior minister and his newest robe for next Sunday, nor the mass choir, nor the weekly sermonette for Christianettes who lives on Raisinettes.
But the corporate anointing considers the contribution of each member of the body. And this principle can be further examined from the standpoint of Psalms For the key to releasing the anointing is by dwelling together in unity, as the oil from Aaron's beard flows down upon the body. And beloved, it's in the body where the anointing becomes corporate in gathering, corporate in relationship, corporate in demonstration, and corporate in destiny. The anointing of the Spirit is not one, which merely falls down upon us in Charismatic terms, but the corporate anointing is made.
Just like the apothecary or compound anointing and spices are made, so is the making of the corporate anointing. For the corporate contribution to make a difference, leaders must allow the oils and spices in one another to blend and flow together in unity. Exodus ; Fatherhood is another dynamic in the maturation and destiny of the saints, as Paul the apostle relates to us the significant importance of this truth in 1 Corinthians Ministry sons will have the loving encouragement of a compassionate yet firm father to under gird and support them in manhood, maturity, and ministry.
Spiritual fatherhood is a dimension of the Spirit, which is not limited to male or female. It is the bedrock and foundation of passing down inheritance and generational blessing. From examples such as Moses and Joshua, to Paul and Timothy, fatherhood is a means of lovingly providing checks and balances, as no man is an island unto himself.
In this present movement, fatherhood is being experienced universally, giving vision, direction, and stability to the sons. Sermons are becoming impartations, and more fathering is coming out from the lips of many elders abroad. Fathering in message and ministry is being coupled together, and is not restricted to just being a spiritual father alone. The kingdom is not a movement, but it is stabilizing influence of God, His decreed will and purpose.
It always has, and always will be, steadfast, unaltered, and unending. The kingdom cannot be moved, but by revelation it will move you into new spheres and frequencies of kingdom advancement. In order to understand and convey the balance truth of the apostolic dimension, one need to go back to the principles of the Kingdom of God, what it is, does, where it is, and why. For the mentality and perception of the apostolic is simply the mentality and perception of the kingdom. The advancing of the kingdom is the advancing of the government of God in the earth. Isaiah ; Psalms ; Mt. Reformation was first believed to be a movement to reform the 16th century Roman Catholic Church, but instead, resulted in the establishing of the Protestant Church.
Martin Luther, a pioneer of the Lutheran church, was an apostle of reformation. Today, the paradigm and shifting of the Reformation Movement involves first, the definition and meaning of the word "Reform. It is the outline or configuration of anything used to give shape to something…. It is the particular mode of existence a thing has or takes; an orderly arrangement. Genesis chapter one, Isaiah ; Acts ; Isaiah In present truth language, apostolic reformation is aligning things into the governmental and divine order of the kingdom of God through the instrumentality of the global church, and the agency and operation of the Holy Spirit.
In present truth reformation, the nations are being re-formed, arrested, assessed, and acquisition into the original purpose, plan, and intention of God for destiny. God is bringing deeper meaning, revelation, and understanding of the kingdom of God, as there now arises in the earth a bold new sound which says, "The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein.
In prophetic and apostolic reformation, there is the declaration of the kingdom of God as come, and his will being done in earth, as it is in heaven.
