Restoring Divine Order

(Bringing The Church To Order)


The secret to the success of the Early Church, (New Testament) was in large part, due to Divine Order being "the way of life" for it. There can be no success nor real Blessing (such that will shake the world) unless Divine Order exists in The Church!


For centuries, the Church has followed an "order" that is not of God, which has resulted in Chaos and Confusion in the Church, and as a result, THE HARVEST OF THE EARTH IS NOT REAPED!


About a year ago, God spoke to us to "Get on with the business of calling The Church to Order".


For Order to be restored in The Church, Order MUST be restored in the Ministry FIRST, for "as the Ministry goes, so goes The Church"!


Ephesians 4:8 "...when He ascended upon high, He led captivity captive, and gave Gifts unto men." Vs. 11,12 "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:" These Gifts were given with Divine Purpose & Plan!


That Purpose and Plan is clearly stated in these verses and those that follow!


God’s Order for the Ministry is: First, Apostles; Second, Prophets; (1 Cor. 12:28) Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers.


Today, "the order" being followed in the Church as a whole is: PASTORS, then Evangelists, Teachers, and maybe Prophets. The Church as a whole does not recognize or accept APOSTLES!


If we read and Believe, The New Testament, it is obvious that the Apostles were Direct Supervisors of The Church! Pastors responded to their God-given Authority; Disputes were settled by them; Doctrine was "guided" by them; in all matters, the Apostles were the head, UNDER CHRIST!


Today, the Pastor is the head, and if he chooses to recognize a ministry, he fully expects that ministry to be subject unto him!


Not only is this not Scriptural, it creates Confusion in The Body of Christ, and generates further disorder!


A True Apostle has the ear of God; God speaks to him, and he gives The Word from Heaven to The Church!


A True Prophet also hears from God, and speaks as The Oracle of God, giving guidance and counsel to

The Church!

A True Pastor is the shepherd and primary Teacher of "the flock of God, that the Holy Ghost has made him overseer over".

A True Evangelist is a "seed-sower", "a reaper", and goes to new ground to plant the Gospel. Most so-called Evangelists today are REVIVALISTS; that is, they go only to established churches to try to "revive" them! These are NOT true Evangelists! An Evangelist is involved in EVANGELISM, not in REVIVALISM!

A True Teacher gives insight and in-depth understanding of the Scriptures, thus bringing Revelation Knowledge to light. Lives are enriched, and the "mystery of Christ" is revealed in The Church!

NO ONE PERSON IS THE "HEAD" OF THE CHURCH! THAT POSITION AND TITLE IS SOLELY RESERVED FOR JESUS CHRIST!

However, each ministry has it’s God-Ordained position and authority under Christ! We must recognize these ministries, their positions and authority AND allow their God-given FUNCTION in The Church, in order for The Church to be BROUGHT TO ORDER!

God is CALLING THE CHURCH TO ORDER! He is using the Apostles to "make that call"! The Prophets will confirm it! The Pastors will implement it!


The Evangelists will preach and pursue it! The Teachers will teach it, and THE HOLY GHOST WILL INSTILL IT IN THE HEARTS AND SPIRITS OF THE CHURCH, THUS BRINGING RESTORATION, WHOLENESS AND ORDER TO THE CHURCH!


The time is now. "The Glory of the latter house shall be greater than the former…" (Haggai 2:9)


God wants to show His Glory, and place it in His Church! He cannot do it until Divine Order is Restored!


Many will resist the return to Divine Order. Some for selfish reasons, such as "safeguarding their position", etc.; others, because "change is scary", and most people tend to resist change for that reason.


However, for the sake of The Church, and the sake of the lost, WE MUST RETURN TO DIVINE ORDER if the Harvest of the earth is to be reaped, and The Bride is to be made ready for Christ's’ Coming!


When there is Divine Order, there is Divine Glory! Without Divine Order, there can be no Glory!

Today, God’s Creation ( The Church) has become " wasted and without order…" The Plans of man are preferred above the Plans of God… the ideas of man are courted above the favor of God, and His Ideas!

We have been called of God, to help bring back Divine Order, and hence, The Glory!
