Modern day apostleship is a very controversial subject within today's Christianity. The vast majority of professing Christians believe that there are no apostles being sent by Jesus on missions today but many others dispute that opinion. I am one of the Christians who dispute it and I feel led by God to here give you the reasons that I have for so doing.

Romans 15:18 - For I will not presume to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me....

Here I am testifying about
what I believe to have been Jesus Christ's supernatural workings to inform me of my apostolic appointment and then to guide me in it for over 35+ years! So here I have substantiated everything that I have written about my apostlic mission with what I believe are rightly divided Biblical verses and teachings. And here I have also given some very unique testimonies about the Lord's powerful substantiating movements within my life and also within the lives of other Christians with whom He has led me to fellowship.

I ask you the reader to approach these teachings and testimonies with an open mind and a humble and prayerful spirit, desiring only to find God's truth, not mine, about modern day apostleship.

Isaiah 1: 18 "Come now, let us reason together," says the Lord....

So please set aside all of your preconceived notions on this subject and permit God to speak to you in a way that you can understand and believe, as to whether or not this spiritual church office gift is for Christians today (as I am here contending that it is).

Every one of my teachings which are within this blog are open to being corrected and / or improved upon thru thoughtful responses from you, the readers whom God has sent here. You may post your constructive criticisms and / or suggestions in a comment at the bottom of each teaching's entry or you may e-mail them privately to me at -

Periodically, I will revisit every teaching within this blog in order to add more pertinent testimonies and / or more substantiating Scriptures to it and also to make corrections and / or improve it. That's when I will update each of them with any truths that I find God giving me from within your comments about them.

James 3:17 - The wisdom from above is first pure...

My prayer is that everything written on this blog is now (or will ultimately become thru editing), completely true to God and His word so that through it everyone that reads its entries may gain wisdom that it is Scripturally pure.

If this is your first visit here, please start with the first two Archive entries in March 2008 below because these are foundational teachings regarding modern day apostleship. Please also read the 3rd entry for substantiating testimonial evidence of my own apostolic ministry.

All entries beyond these first 3 contain various teachings and testimonies which I feel that God has moved me (in my apostolic role) to bring forth to edify you, my readers. The sum total of all of these entries are the ongoing annals of this anonymous modern day apostle who humbly strives to serve our glorious Lord Jesus Christ because...

Isaiah 61:10 - I delight greatly in the Lord...

Thank you.

14. God speaks to us in healings.

I Corinthians 4: 20 - For the kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power.

God is actually speaking to us in power, not in words, whenever He brings about a miraculous healing. By giving us a powerful healing He is telling us that He exists and He is helping us. In the book of Acts a number of miraculous healings and even some resurrections from the dead are described. In every case, the observers of the miraculous event confessed that they saw God's working in it. So, can it not be said that God spoke to them in power in these events?

One time I was visiting my mother and she mentioned to me about how she had lost most of her pep recently and she was becoming very distraught about it. So I responded that I would pray for her to get it back but in the meantime, perhaps she should go to a doctor for a checkup.

A couple of days later I was visiting her again and she exclaimed to me how the next morning after I told her that I would pray for her, all of her old pep came back! We both saw this as a miracle from God and rejoiced together in it. To me this was a wonderful, welcome message from God, saying to her that...

Hebrews 11:6b - ...He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him.

Another time a woman who worked with me told me that her mother-in-law was seriously ill and riddled with cancer and that she was about to be operated upon the next day. She then told me how much she valued and appreciated her mother-in-law and could not imagine life without her and she was terrified that she would die soon. She told me that the whole family revolved around her wonderful goodness and that her loss would be a disaster for all of them. So I asked her if she could believe that God would heal her?

She responded that she believed that of course God could do it but she did not have any faith that He would do it. So I asked her if she could just have faith that He might heal her. "Yes" she said, she could believe
that He might heal her but not that He would for sure heal her. So we prayed together in agreement on that, humbly asking God if He might heal her.

James 4:6b - grace to the humble.

The day after the operation she came to work rejoicing. She said that when the surgeon opened her mother-in-law up there was not one trace of any cancer being present. He even asked the hospital personnel if they had the right woman on his operating table!

Deuteronomy 32:39b -
...I wound, and I heal...

We both saw this as an event in which God spoke to us in power.

Here is another example of the Lord speaking to us in the power of a miraculous healing.

A lady that I know of had very sore knees. She thought that it was arthritis but I sensed that perhaps a demon was in them. So boldly I commanded
the demon to come out of her knees in the name of Jesus and instantly the pain left them. Then I encouraged her to get up and walk around. She did so, no longer hindered in any way.

Again, God spoke to us in the miraculous removal of her pain and discomfort saying that demons can immobilize people but God can remove them. The Lord speaks to us in every healing (or any other miracle for that matter) but He speaks in power, not in words because the kingdom of God consists in power. We just need to learn to hear Him in His manifested power.

The method of instruction utilized here.

Here, you will learn the wonderful truths regarding each entry's subject with which I feel that God has rewarded me over the years.

Hebrews 11:6b - ...He rewards those who DILIGENTLY seek Him!

I believe that the truths found within each of these Biblical teachings have been given to me by God as gifts for seeking Him with all of my heart.

Jeremiah 29:13 - You will seek Me and you will find Me when you seek Me with all of your heart.

I also believe that these truths have been accompanied by all of the supernatural substantiations from Him to which I here testify. These teachings and testimonies will not be found anywhere else that I know of.

Psalm 119:9
9 - I have better understandings and deeper insights than all of my teachers because Your testimonies are my meditation.

However, whenever I am led by God to encounter a really good Internet teaching which has been authored by another(that fits within the context of one of my own teachings), I will inform you of it and I will provide you with a link to it. It is not important to me if any of the information here that God wants to be shared with you is authored by me or by someone else. What is important to me is that you be given true teachings of God and His Word, no matter whom He uses to bring them forth.

All of these doctrinal studies are being compiled here just as I believe that God says in His Word that they are to be compiled.

Isaiah 28:9 - 10a - whom shall He teach knowledge? And whom shall He make to understand doctrine?

For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept...

I believe that God's Word in context is the first thing that is to be presented about each subject that is discussed. Next, I believe that freedom of the Word is also to be employed in any doctrinal study.

Isaiah 29:10b - ...line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little

This is where the Holy Spirit moves to give us inspiration from various Scriptures and/or their principles
from all over the Bible (and in many different translations) regarding each subject. Here a little, there a little Scriptural precept plucking is a precedent set by the Holy Spirit in the Word where He often inspired the men who wrote the New Testament to so pull and quote Scriptures from the Old Testament.

These holy men were moved to utilize all or parts of
many Old Testament passages and verses (some completely out of context and/or seemingly totally unrelated) in their pastoral letters to Scripturally substantiate the things that they taught. They also did this frequently within the 4 gospel accounts of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and within the book of Acts. The original apostles truly had freedom in the Word!

Whenever I have actually
experienced for myself manifestations of the truth of any of these doctrines, my personal testimonies of those happenings are employed by me here to illustrate and / or to further substantiate them. When others have experienced them and told me about their experiences, I utilize their testimonies. Either way, these testimonies all contribute immensely to the truth and hopefully they will contribute to the acceptance of each teaching.
