So we have the five-fold ministry gifts where we previously have talked about in the book of Ephesians. Look Jesus Himself gave some to be Apostle’s, Prophets, Evangelist, Pastors, and Teachers. Let’s look as it is the heart of this ministry that we get to doing this very thing. Better to do that, than to hope God does see the church the way you do. Rev 1:2 thru 3:22 tells us of what He will think about the church if he doesn’t already. And no doubt you want to hear what I think, ha, ok so but anyway, I will let you know which is that I think we are in the last age of the 7-churches and I think that many of us will miss the event because we really are not plugged in. See let’s walk a narrow unrelated but related path shall we? Luke states that many will try and get into the Kingdom of God and will not be able, and Matthew states that the gate is narrow and there are few who find it because it is difficult. Ha, see the key as to why the easy-livers may not get in? Ok so but then we continue on with Him stating, that is God, that He will come as a thief in the night. Here are the thief in the night scriptures as well as a glimmer of hope scripture that well gives us who really want to forsake all to follow God so that we find the narrow path. And don’t think for a minute that the narrow path excludes those who are in cults or false religions, or that do not nor were ever made to believe. The kids of satan – the vessels made for dishonor. Let’s first look at the scriptures that I referred to in this paragraph before I refer to Ephesians list of gifts:
1 John 3:10 - In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother.
