So you call yourself an Apostle?

Posted by appolus on April 17, 2014

In an age where many in Christendom claim to be apostles, what are some of the basic signs of an apostle? Apostles tell the people hard truths, very often things they do not want to hear. An Apostle in the early days of the church could show you the stripes on his back. The apostle suffered more than anyone yet encouraged the saints even in their chains. Lastly, an apostle was marked for death because he was such a threat to the enemies kingdom. Yet even in the midst of their dungeons, you could hear the apostle praise God because they had learned to be content with the typically dire circumstances they found themselves in to the glory of God. They had entered into the sufferings of the Lord.

  1. “An Apostle in the early days of the church could show you the stripes on his back. ”

    That is a far-strech from what we see today as apostles by “name” but not by life. Would to God that more brethren would be raised up for this calling in North America. And may God’s people accept them.
