Apostles and Prophets

As I was driving to work this morning, a thought came to mind. The thought was this:

In the old testament Prophets were the key focus of the move of God, His operations, His plans, His structure, and so on. In the new testament the Apostles paved the way and established what Christ placed in them by laying a foundation.

Ephesians 2:20 say, “And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;”

What happened in the body of Christ to where we have removed the foundation layers, and began to build upon the foundation differently?

1 Corinthians 3:11 says, “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

We glorify all others in the 5 fold ministry, and I am not taking away from any of them because I cant, but how can we build anything when we have discontinued the ones whom the Lord use to declare the pathway for the next move and how to build upon it.

Amos 3:7 (KJV)  Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
Ephesians 3:5 (KJV)  Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;

Maybe this explains why we do not have any direction in the body of Christ, and have become a business instead of a ministry. We really should consider embracing the TRUE PROPHETS AND TRUE APOSTLES, so we can learn how to shift into the true anointing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I leave you with this, Philippians 2:13 (KJV)  For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Softly Spoken

I am reminded of the story of the Prophet Elijah when he ran into a cave after being threatened by Jezebel that he had an experience with the Lord. While in the cave the Lord told Elijah to go and stand before him upon the mount. While upon the mount a wind came through and tore up part of the mountain, then an earthquake,  and after the earthquake a fire. Now I am sure that these things caused a great deal of noise, and these were patterns that the Lord had moved in before, but the scripture said that through all of this noise the Lord was not in any of it. It doesn’t matter the noise that we hear, in and around us, we have to be able to hear that still small voice. It is that still small voice of God that we have to be able to hear in order for us to remain calm during the noise.
Don’t get caught up with the way the Lord moved before in your life; neither let the noise of life distract you, but be still and know the Lord when He speaks through that still small voice. 1 Kings19:11-12
