There is no doubt that great transitions and shifts are here. I've heard from more and more people that God is calling them to birth new things, move to new places, and expand their ministries and callings.
I really encourage you to read this word by Holly Watson about the apostolic shift that is here:
Saints...it is your time to shift into the new in all God wants to do! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
Recently while I was in prayer, I heard the Holy Spirit say, "A new apostolic edge is coming to the Church!"
An apostle is one of the 5-fold Office ministry gifts given by Jesus. In Ephesians 4:11-12, Paul writes of the impartation of grace Jesus affords to those He calls into ministry service. One of those gifts and graces is an apostle. The Greek word for apostle is apostolas. Apostolas in Strong's dictionary means: a delegate; an appointed ambassador of the Gospel; a messenger who is sent by God to build, equip, and advance the Kingdom of God.
Jesus assigns men and women with special graces to accomplish His will upon the earth. As New Testament Believers, the working of the 5-fold office gifts in unity, holds the keys to how the Spirit of the Lord is moving through the Church in this hour. When the apostles fulfilled their mandate to go into all the world and preach the Gospel upon the fulfillment of Jesus' resurrection, many came into the Kingdom through the power of the Holy Spirit working through the lives of the apostles (Acts 4:33, Mark 16:15).
The apostles built the New Testament Church on the foundation of Jesus Christ as being the Chief Cornerstone (Ephesians 2:20). Apostles are empowered with the miraculous working power of the Holy Spirit to change and transform the world around them (Acts 5:12)! (Photo via Unsplash)
"And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the Body of Christ..." (Ephesians 4:11-12)
A New Wineskin for a New Era
A new wineskin is being birthed in the apostolic and prophetic movement. There's a cutting-edge remnant who are bold for reformation and fiercely on fire for Jesus! As the world gets darker and the earth groans with the birth pains of labor, an arising of this remnant with sharp revelatory and visionary skills (using leading-edge technology to advance the Kingdom) are spearheading a modern-day move of the Holy Spirit.
A new wave of the Spirit of God, through this cutting-edge apostolic remnant, is moving through places of worship to re-identify old apostolic structures. The glory of God is resting on these consecrated ones to bring revelation light and new life to a sleeping Bride. Where old wineskins are in need of a fresh impartation of Holy Ghost power, this cutting-edge move of the Spirit is breathing new life into hungry, dry and weary souls. The apostolic and prophetic movement are getting a fresh wind behind their sails! Just like Jesus turned the water into wine at the wedding of Cana in Galilee, God has saved His best moves for last to demonstrate His life transforming and miraculous power (John 2:1-12)!
"Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved." (Matthew 9:17)
An Apostolic Shift
An apostolic shift is in the works! Just like the apostles impacted the world around them to change the culture among them, this generation requires a stand-out breed of people who sets the world on fire with the passion, anointing, and power of the Holy Ghost. How we identify apostles and apostolic hubs is changing. A new, cutting-edge apostolic generation, coupled with the wisdom from the generals of the faith, is about to explode onto the scene! Even now, God is raising up mold-breakers and era-shifters who radically turn the world upside down and inside out for Jesus (Acts 17:6).
What was once labeled as an "apostolic hub" will suddenly experience a monumental shift of being an epicenter for radical encounters and burning ones on fire for Jesus. The presence of God will be like that of when Jesus took Peter, James, and John up on the Mt. of Transfiguration with the Shekinah glory so weighty that the disciples were rendered down on their faces in fear and wonder (Matthew 17).
These cutting-edge apostles and apostolic centers will be on the leading edge of this Millennial move of the Spirit of God. These new epicenters will experience the rain, wind, and fire of the Holy Ghost like that on the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit radically invaded the upper room. Reports of out-of-the-ordinary miracles and jaw dropping testimonies will give God all the glory for His miraculous power moving strategically across the earth. The Word of God, as a sharp two-edged sword will make a powerful impact on the ears of its hearers (Hebrews 4:12).
Not only will radical salvations be the fruit of the Word preached in due time and season, but healings of the heart and soul and a transformation of the mind, will be the results of a end-time harvest of souls coming into the Kingdom. Nothing will escape the eye of the Lord or the favor of God, as this new cutting-edge move of the Spirit is birthed throughout the land. (Photo via Unsplash)
Ministries will begin breaking new ground and leading regions into break out moves of God in unprecedented ways. Church as we know it, and ministry services like we're accustomed to, will have a new face and new name to call their new home. Nothing will be exempt and everything will be affected by what God has in store! Get ready for a new apostolic edge to impact the Church like never before. Peter's shadow passing by is nothing compared to what God is ready to do (Acts 5:15)! Cutting-edge, fresh and revolutionary...It's time for out with the old and in with the new!
