One Another Ministry

One Another Ministry

The Early church was a church without leaders, yes they have leaders, yes they have apostles, but they don’t have the kind of leadership thinking that we have today. Apostle Paul is just one of the examples of apostolic patterns, but Jesus is the perfect example of apostolic patterns. Apostle Paul will go into a new area, planting the churches in homes, He will be there about three months, preaching and teaching centered on Christ, then he will go away for about two years, he will leave them without leadership or eldership! –(Rom. 15:20-21)

See Apostle Paul had such apostolic preaching, such apostolic teaching that the believers could stand on their two own feet without leadership, today’s kind of church is build around leadership, instead the church should be build around Christ and the faith that follows. Apostle Paul establish them only in a short time in Christ as a community of believers, that meet in homes, they know how to walk in community, today most churches don’t have community, that is about to change. –(1 Cor. 14:26)

It is time to build the church to be centered on Christ, no leadership, yes we need leadership, yes we need government, but we need God’s way of leadership, God’s way of government, what we don’t need is co-leadership, we need to establish believers in Christ to stand together without leadership, flowing in life giving community, the church in the home. –(1 Jn. 1:7)

It is time for strong anointed apostolic preaching to be rebirth; it is time for strong anointed apostolic teaching to be rebirth that in short times hearing and receiving apostolic preaching and apostolic teaching a person and a group could stand forth and flow into a Strong faith with the power of the Holy Spirit. –(1 Cor. 2:4-5)

This brings me to my other point, being a Christian is not a personal religion instead it is a fellowship of faith, it is a company of set apart, called out people of living faith, not a person, not one, instead the many, a Christian is not a Christian without Christians. Yes you have a personal relationship with Christ, but your relationship must flow into the fellowship of the body of believers. –(1 Cor. 1:2,9)

The early church was based in the homes, the church in the homes is more biblical then the local church, we need a restoration of the church in the home, the church in the home, is biblical fellowship. –(Acts 2:40-47)

The Priesthood of the believer is very limited today in the local church, the local church is setup to keep the believer down and out of the anointing, there is no application of ministry for a the common believer, and the local church is setup to control and maintain the ungodly division between the believer and the minister. Only in the church in the home, we can see the application of the priesthood of the believer. –(1 Pet. 2:5,9, 4:10-11)

We cannot apply the one anothers; such as love one another, pray for one another, minister to one another, we cannot see any of the one another’s as we see in the Holy Scriptures, or the one another ministry, in the limited local church, only in the application of the church in the home. –(Jn. 13:34-35, Rom. 13:8,19, Gal. 5:13-14, 1 Cor. 14:26, Eph. 5:19-21, Col. 3:12-16)

The Church in the home is the place for beginning discipleship, building relationship, building fellowship, building community, the one another ministry, and the priesthood of the believer. –(1 Pet. 2:5,9, 1 Cor. 14:26)

The ministry of the pastor today has no biblical foundation, the pastor in the Holy Scriptures, and the pastor you see and hear today they are not the same. Pastors today are aliens of true church government, based on biblical foundation. Pastors today are strangers and foreigners to biblical church government. There is no such thing as the one-man ministry, there is no such thing as a pastor being the head of a church, there is no such thing one pastor leading any church. The pastors in the book of Acts were home church pastors; the pastor ministry is based in the church in the home, to give pastoral care, pastor love, but not control, into the flow of anointing and gifts among the believers in unity and order with liberty. The church in the Home is the place for ministry of the pastor and the evangelist, to connect and to bring souls into the church through the church in the home. –(Rom. 16:3-16)

Apostles were the overseers of the church, they will oversee a network of churches in the home, apostles lead the church, they were first to lead the church, and apostles were seniors in the government of the church. –(1 Cor. 12:28)

There is the church in the home, which is a place for fellowship and the one another ministry, then there is the 1 Cor. 12:28 center, this was a place for fathering, mentoring, training, and equipping the saints for the work of the ministry, the 1 Cor. 12:28 center was the place for the ministry of the apostle, prophet, and teacher. –(1 Cor. 12:28)

The saints are to do the work of ministry, not the apostle, prophet, or teacher, the Five-Fold ministry is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry, 98 percent of the ministry, the believers do, and the 2 percent the Five-Fold Ministry does. The Work of the ministry begins in the church in the home. –(Eph. 4:11-12)

The elders were a team of elder, with a senior elder; who are an apostle, a leading apostle, and the eldership were apostles, prophets, and teachers. –(1 Cor. 12:28)

The Path of ordination is: You grow in your gift and ministry among the church in the home, ministering with the one another ministry, the believers then recognize your gifting and your calling, and you then begin to be set apart, and then you grow more and prove your faithfulness, then the apostles begin to father and mentor you, and after a time, they give you affirmation into office ministry. –(Acts 14:23)
