TOPIC: Apostle’s Ministry (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 18 October 2021)


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Galatians 4:7-13

7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

8 Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.

9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?

10 Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.

11 I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.

12 Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are: ye have not injured me at all.

13 Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first.

MEMORY VERSE: “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers.” – Ephesians 4:11

If you are not called, you will be curbed.

PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit



The Greek word “apostolos” means messenger or sent. For example, Paul said he was the apostle or sent one to the Gentiles. An apostle is a pioneer who establishes churches and lays foundational truth in people’s lives (Ephesians 2:20). Apostles could be called “spiritual builders” (1 Corinthians 3:10). They have oversight of the body (1 Corinthians 4:15).

The ministry of an apostle is the most neglected of the five-fold ministries in the Church today. There are many pastors, teachers and evangelists, a few prophets, but very few apostles. One reason behind this is that apostles do not fit into denominational hierarchy. They cannot freely function within the structure of committees, elected leadership and denominational red tape. The ministry of apostleship is an area much in need for restoration to the Church by the Holy Spirit.

Few people are familiar with the ministry of the apostle. In fact, most people think that the original twelve disciples are the only real apostles. Although they hold a special place as the original apostles, the Bible mentions many other apostles, including Matthias (Acts 1:26), Paul (Acts 14:1,4,14), Titus (2 Corinthians 8:23), Epaphroditus (Philippians 2:25), Silas and Timothy (1 Thessalonians 1:1; 2:6). Also Andronicus and Junia, listed in Romans 16:7 were possibly Apostles. This shows that there were apostles after the original twelve.

The first and foremost apostles is Jesus Christ (Hebrews 3:1). He was sent forth from heaven on a divine mission for the Father. Jesus chose the original apostles (Luke 6:12-13), trained them (Mark 3:14-15) and commissioned them (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:1-8). The book of Acts reveals how the apostolic ministry functioned in the early Church. As the apostles traveled and evangelized, they saw a need for permanent leadership in the churches they established. As a result, they ordained men to be elders, pastors and overseers in each five-fold ministry, including apostles. The Bible does not teach that apostleship was to cease. Rather, the word teaches that apostles are much needed in the body of Christ.

Apostles are leaders and visionaries. They bring direction to the church. They have the courage and ability to keep the Church moving forward, growing and building in new directions. Apostles are also fathers, able to nurture and discipline the other ministry areas. Beloved, let us pray to God to send His apostles to the Church today.



  1. Lord, strengthen me with Your might and by Your spirit strengthen my inner man, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Lord Jesus, dwell in my heart, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Lord, give unto me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Yourself, in the name of Jesus.


  1. Lord, give me the eyes of understanding to know the hope of my calling, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Lord, show me the exceeding greatness of Your power, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Lord, show me the exceeding riches of Your grace and glory, in the name of Jesus.
  4. Lord, let me be a partaker of Your promise in glory, in the name of Jesus.
