Apostolic and Prophetic Foundations On The Move
His house is built on the apostolic and prophetic foundation with Jesus Himself being the chief cornerstone (see Ephesians 2:20).
There is a rising realization in the Body of Christ of the emergence of the Apostolic And Prophetic gifts and ministries coming together.
Ephesians 2:20 (NKJV)
20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,
Apostle defined: gr., apostolos
“ambassador,” “messenger,” envoy,” “one who represents the sender.”
Paul writes to the Corinthians and expresses that they are the “products and proof”
of his workmanship in the Lord. They had become the seal (certificate, the living
evidence) of his apostleship in the Lord— confirming and authenticating it.
Also, note that in Titus 1:1-3, Paul conveys the specific manner of apostleship…
“And (now) in HIS (Christ’s) own appointed time HE has made manifest (made known)
HIS WORD and revealed it as HIS MESSAGE through preaching entrusted to me (Paul)
by command of God our Saviour… the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.
Other apostolic functions are discussed by Paul in 2 Cor, 12:1; 12:12.
