MORNINGTIME 2466
 
And he gave some, APOSTLES; and some, PROPHETS; and some, EVANGELISTS; and some, PASTORS and TEACHERS; FOR THE PERFECTING OF THE SAINTS, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: TILL WE ALL COME IN THE UNITY of the faith, AND of the KNOWLEDGE of the Son OF GOD, unto a perfect man, UNTO the measure of the stature of THE FULNESS OF CHRIST: THAT WE henceforth BE NO MORE CHILDREN, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;  BUT speaking the truth in love, MAY GROW UP into him IN all things, which is the head, even CHRIST: Ephesians 4:11-15. This is called "The Five Fold Ministry" which includes the 5 positions of office at the top of these verses. Nowhere in the Bible is there ANY place that would seem to even remotely indicate any of these 5 positions be shut down or discontinued, NOWHERE. I say all this because there are some "big name preachers" out there saying this office, or that office, is no longer needed because... and whatever reasons they give. If there ever was a time in Biblical History, NOW IS THE TIME MORE THAN EVER THAT WE NEED TRUE MEN OF GOD PREACHING HIS WORD. To look across the full spectrum of "the American church" MOST preachers are dry with very little understanding of God and His Word. It's as plain as the nose on our face, the American church is in very serious trouble. Just look around, listen, look at our "christian" bookstores, what are people looking at and listening to? Compared to Sunday morning service, how many people come to Sunday night service, or Wednesday night prayer meeting. This is not about how bad the church is, this IS about; THE CHURCH IS IN SUCH BAD SHAPE, WE NEED THE 5 FOLD MINISTRY NOW, MORE THAN EVER. God said in the End Days there would be a famine of The Word in the land. People, WE'RE HERE!!! Good News, His sheep are still Following the Shepherd, and will, Be Blessed.
