PURPOSE OF THE ECCLESIA

  ACTS 13:1-4-  PURPOSE OF THE ECCLESIA!

Now in the church (ecclesia) that was at Antioch there were certain prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manean had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. As the ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away. So, (being sent out by the Holy Spirit), they went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus.

  Notice, that to the reference of the “church at Antioch” (ecclesia) the list of the five men were “prophets and teachers.” They are meeting together, fasting and praying, when the Holy Ghost separates two of them, Barnabas and Saul (who would become Paul), to the “work” to which I have called them. This ‘work’ is the “apostolic” work that they were beginning to be sent out to the cities and regions. And who was it that sent them out? You say, well, it was the Holy Spirit! That’s right, but who laid hands on them and sent them? It had to be the other three prophets and teachers serving as a presbytery, who prophesied by the UNCTION OF THE HOLY GHOST, that sent them!

  The Holy Spirit spoke through the prophetic word to launch the apostolic team of Barnabas and Saul. Soon, Saul would be called “Paul” (Acts 13:9) and they went preaching throughout the cities and regions. Later, the team would be called, Paul and Barnabas, signifying, that the leadership of the team would shift. The purpose was simply advance and extend the rule of the kingdom through the apostolic team.

Acts 13:49- And the word of the Lord was being spread throughout all the region.

  Praise reports! 3 weeks ago we prayed for a man named Ben who has had 2 kidney transplants over the years. 3 weeks ago his organs began shutting down because of the dialisis but without the dialisis his kidney was shutting down. Things looked pretty bad but praise God that we walk by faith and not by sight! Ben was released from the hospital today leaving some drs scratching their heads. 🙂 Another woman diagnosed with cancer last week underwent more test this week and walked out of the hospital cancer free! HALLELUJAH! GOD WE GIVE YOU ALL THE GLORY, HONOR AND PRAISE!

  All things that have nothing to do with His purpose and calling for your life will eventually become boring and deplorable. That which is born from soulish ambition begins with passionate zeal and works, yet ends with one finding themselves “going through the motions” while regretting their choices. In situations like these, wisdom runs into the arms of Jesus …while foolishness dwells on the same paths of pain and regret.   Ecc 2:17 Therefore I hated life; because the work that is wrought under the sun is grievous unto me: for all is vanity and vexation of spirit.

Who are you with?…Acts 13:1-4-  The Purpose of the “Ecclesia!”

Now in the church (ecclesia) that was at Antioch there were certain prophets and teachers:  Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manean had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.  As the ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”  Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away.  So, (being sent out by the Holy Spirit), they went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus.

Notice, that to the reference of the “church at Antioch” (ecclesia) the list of the five men were “prophets and teachers.”  They are meeting together, fasting and praying, when the Holy Ghost separates two of them, Barnabas and Saul (who would become Paul), to the “work” to which I have called them.  This ‘work’ is the “apostolic” work that they were beginning to be sent out to the cities and regions.  And who was it that sent them out?  You say, well, it was the Holy Spirit!  That’s right, but who laid hands on them and sent them?  It had to be the other three prophets and teachers serving as a presbytery, who prophesied by the UNCTION OF THE HOLY GHOST, that sent them!

The Holy Spirit spoke through the prophetic word to launch the apostolic team of Barnabas and Saul.  Soon, Saul would be called “Paul” (Acts 13:9) and they went preaching throughout the cities and regions.  Later, the team would be called, Paul and Barnabas, signifying, that the leadership of the team would shift.  The purpose was simply advance and extend the rule of the kingdom through the apostolic team.  Acts 13:49-  And the word of the Lord was being spread throughout all the region….
