Oneness of the Fivefold

Oneness of the Fivefold

Oneness among Christians is a huge blessing as well as the command of Christ.

Let us encourage that on both local and broader scales. Then the watching world can see that Christ´s reconciliation, restoration, grace and love are for real.

However, the actual oneness will only make lasting, fundamental impact when leaders start honoring, loving and submitting to each other, in line with the basic instructions in Ephesians 2:20; Ephesians 4:11-16; and 1Corinthians 12:28.

The fivefold ministry (Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher) can’t be constructed by human wisdom, but is solely the sovereign work of Christ. The fivefold can emerge in any denomination or background, and titles have little significance.

The Bible shows that this oneness does not require many in number, but quality in heart towards the other.

Love which sacrificially serves and honors the other.

The fire of the Holy Spirit always falls upon the sacrifice.

That is why I have faith for TRANSFORMATION in Norway, Europe, and globally as we are entering the new year 2023.
