California Become The First State In America To Legally Recognize A Third Gender!

Image
Reader what y'all think? California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed into law legislation that recognizes a third gender option for driver’s licenses and birth certificates. Gender is no longer either male or female, according to the state of California. ‘It means that when somebody looks at my license, it’s not going to be as confusing to them.’ Gov. Jerry Brown on Sunday signed into law legislation that recognizes a third gender option for driver’s licenses and birth certificates. Starting in 2019, Californians will be able to identify themselves as not just male or female, but “nonbinary.” The bill was one of many Brown left to the last day of the Oct. 15 deadline to either sign or veto.

Get Out Of Here: Five Fold Ministry Classes!


There's a Facebook  Apostle who will be teaching classes starting tonight on "The God Hand."  Folks need to stop breaking these words down to titles to make more money.

1).Apostles are the thumbs because this position touches all other parts of the five-fold ministry.
2).  Prophets are the index finger; not because they are pointing out the blunders we commit often in ministry, but because they are meant to show the way (point) and are meant to encourage others through the prophetic word.

3).Evangelists are the middle finger because it is the tallest and reaches outside the hand (the church body) before any other member.

4). Pastors are the ring finger because they are married to God in the agreement that they lead the church as a man would be the spiritual leader in his home.
5).  Teachers are the pinky finger not because they are the smallest. Try tying your pinky finger down and go around using your hand.

  1. I was surprise when God called me to the ministry the term "Fivefold Ministry" was hardly seen in the church. So for the Lord to say that I was called to be a prophet... then a teacher... then an apostle... blew my mind!

  2. The concept of the five-fold ministry comes from Ephesians 4:11, "It was he who gave some to be (1) apostles, some to be (2) prophets, some to be (3) evangelists, and some to be (4) pastors and (5) teachers." Primarily as a result of this verse, some believe God has restored, or is restoring, the offices of apostle and prophet in the church today. Ephesians 4:12-13 tells us that the purpose of the five-fold ministry is, "to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ." So, since the body of Christ definitely is not built up to unity in the faith and has not attained to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ, the thinking goes, the offices of apostle and prophet must still be in effect.

    However, Ephesians 2:20 informs us that the church is "built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the chief cornerstone." If the apostles and prophets were the foundation of the church, are we still building the foundation? Hebrews 6:1-3 encourages us to move on from the foundation. Although Jesus Christ is most definitely active in the church today, His role as the cornerstone of the church was completed with His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension. If the work of the cornerstone is, in that sense, complete, so must the work of the apostles and prophets, who were the foundation, be complete.

    What was the role of the apostles and prophets? It was to proclaim God's revelation, to teach the new truth the church would need to grow and thrive. The apostles and prophets completed this mission. How? By giving us the Word of God. The Word of God is the completed revelation of God. The Bible contains everything the church needs to know to grow, thrive, and fulfill God's mission (2 Timothy 3:15-16). The cornerstone work of the apostles and prophets is complete. The ongoing work of the apostles and prophets is manifested in the Holy Spirit speaking through and teaching us God's Word. In that sense, the five-fold ministry is still active.

  3. Simply put...if you read Ephesians 4:11-13, the "five-fold ministry" is for the equpping of the saints for the work of ministry all the other garbage ascribed to this term is nothing but noise. Contemporary church has added a lot more to its interpretation of this portion of scripture to fit its situation. The church has assigned a kind of hierarchical structure to this passage, as if the apostle is a position to which people should aspire. However, apostles were planters, not governors. I would argue that these were not intended to be "offices" at all and that a person could transition in and out of these roles throughout his/her ministry tenure.
