It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Eph. 4:11-13
A divine emphasis on restoring the 5-fold ministries continues in this time of shakings, of upheavels and new beginnings. This is accompanied by the destruction of the man-made church and its unbiblical structures. It is a divine momentum in which smaller groups again meet in their homes and attain maturity in the fullness of Christ through the restoration of the 5-fold ministry. I am involved in one of these initiatives, along with several leaders, and am traveling (now by Zoom) around Europe. Here are a few sentences about this movement.
The vision of the restoration of the 5-fold ministry through:
-an open platform for all those who are interested, where they can build a network with each other and work together to build up the body of Christ in their nations,
-mediating biblically-founded instruction and making it available,
– as quickly as possible finding others who take up this vision and develop it responsibly,
– organizing 5-fold ministry meetings in order to promote this goal. When the above steps have been taken, we will have fulfilled our share of the work. Then we will be ready to let go and set out for the next country.
