IDENTIFICATION, DISTINGUISHING, AND PURPOSE

THE 5 FOLD MINISTRY OF JESUS CHRIST:

IDENTIFICATION; DISTINGUISHING; AND FUNCTIONS

IN HIS BODY, THE CHURCH

 

THE 5 OFFICES BACK UP ONE ANOTHER [Not tearing down one another]
E-81. In His army ... He presents His army in the form of five offices, first, apostles, prophets, teachers, pastors, evangelists. That's His army; that's His soldiers; that's His commanding officers, all with the baptism of the Holy Ghost, waiting out there to meet the enemy on any grounds he comes upon; to meet the enemy with the Word of God (Amen.), each one backing one another up, with Him the Chief Captain, not out there in front, up here, above, back behind; but in them. That's the army. Vindicating, vindicating what? His resurrection, by the proof of His works.
E-82 John 14:12, Jesus said, "He that believeth in Me, the works that I do shall he do also." What is it? It's God in the church in these five predestinated offices, backing up every Word that He said with the Holy Spirit Himself in there, which is the Word made manifest, proving His resurrection, proving that He lives.

TAKE ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD. 62.07.01

HEARING FROM EACH OF THEM, IS HEARING HIS MINISTRY
E-40 [Blank spot on tape Ed.] ... are not called by the church, or so forth, they are chosen by God: Apostles; second, prophets; third, (I may not have these lined just right,) third I think is teachers, and evangelists, and pastors. Five spiritual offices in the church to set the church in order: Apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, pastors, those are called offices by God. Then in the local congregation, there are nine spiritual gifts that work among the people.
Now, in these offices and places, in the offices you hear from the apostle, his ministry. You hear from the prophet, his ministry, from the evangelists, from the teacher, from the pastor. Each has a separate ministry. And their ministries are of God. God has set them in the church for this purpose.

PROPHET LIKE UNTO MOSES. 59.11.20

ALL FIVE OFFICES STILL OPERATE
E 51 … How many believes that gifts and callings are without repentance? The Bible said there are five gifts in the church. God has set in the church Apostles, or missionaries, apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, pastors. Truly, if there is apostle, there's a prophet. If there's a prophet, there's a teacher. If there's a teacher, there's a pastor or an evangelist. See. You can't just say there's a pastor and evangelist, no prophet or apostle. God still sets... As long as He's got His church, He's still got His church setting. Certainly.

TESTED FAITH PRODUCES GOODS. 58.05.18

YOU ARE NOT CALLED INTO 2 OR MORE OFFICES AT THE SAME TIME;
BUT YOU CAN BE CALLED TO DO THE WORK OF AN EVANGELIST

757-64 I believe that the Lord has used me in little special things to help maybe lay a foundation for a prophet that will come. But a prophet doesn't operate the way I operate, now, you know that. A prophet isn't an evangelist, and an evangelist isn't a prophet. A pastor isn't an evangelist, and an evangelist isn't a pastor. But God has set in the church, first apostles, then prophets, then teachers, then pastors and so forth. God set them in the church and God gave them an office. But the morning when I laid that cornerstone, if you're spiritual you get it. Because of the cry of the people... If you could break that out or take the book and read it, it said, "Do the work of an evangelist." Didn't call me to be an evangelist, but said, "Do the work of an evangelist, for the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but for--heap themselves together teachers, having itching ears and shall turn from truth to fables." See?

TAKING SIDES WITH JESUS. 62.06.01

JESUS SPEAKS THROUGH EACH OF THE 5 MINISTERIAL OFFICES.
….He can't be here in a corporal body, but He's here in a spiritual body, in the form called the Holy Spirit.
E 49 And God set in the Church first, what? Missionaries, or apostles; apostle and missionary, as I told you, taught you, is the same thing, "one sent" Apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelist, pastors, God set in the Church for the perfecting of the Church. That's Divine gifts that God foreordained and set into the Church. See? Those are for the perfecting of the Church. Jesus speaks through His pastor, speaks through His teacher, speaks through His seer, His prophet, speaks through His missionary to the countries, and so forth. That's His gifts that He's put in the Church.

BLIND BARTIMAEUS. 56.04.14

WE ARE CUT, MADE, NATURED AND PLACED DIFFERENTLY
32 Now, Wednesday night, many of you weren’t here Wednesday night, but we got into the, I believe it's the 3rd verse. No, it's the 5th verse, unto the adoption, or placing of the people, how that God trying to place His people. And when God places one, then, oh, all the whole church wants to be like that one have the same kind of things, do the same thing. We are cut out different; we're made different; we are natured different; and we are positionally placed different, each one for a different work; maybe one for just a little kind of a work, another for a large work. I believe it was David or one of the prophets; I forget now, said, "I would rather be a doormat at the house of the Lord, than to dwell in the tents with the wicked."

POSITION IN CHRIST. 60.05.22M

LOOK AT SOME OF THESE OLD TESTAMENT EXAMPLES:
Compare these examples, where you can see one tribe living in the wrong place forcing that other tribeto take up another land, which wasn’t ordained for them. Can you figure out any consequences which could arise from occupying a position or office you are not called to?

1. In [Joshua 13:1], and [Joshua 18:2- 6]
[Josh.18: 1] The placing of the tribe of Benjamin, was okay.
[Josh. 19:1] The placing of Simeon and of Judah was not okay. Reason:
Judah occupied some of the inheritance which belongs to Simeon. [Josh.19:1b], Josh.19:9]

2. [Josh.19:10]. The placing the tribe of Zebulon, was okay.

3. [Josh.17: 11]. The placing the tribe of Issachar, was not okay.
Issachar occupied cities which belonged to Manasseh. Some citizens were displaced.
Manasseh could not drive out the occupants of their inheritance. [Josh. 17: 12]. They sought for land elsewhere.

4. [Josh.17:11, 31]. The placing of the tribes of Asher and Manasseh was not okay.
Asher occupied cities which belong to Manasseh. [Josh.17:11]
Manasseh could not drive out the occupants of their inheritance. [Josh.17: 12].

5. [Josh. 19:32, 39]. The placing of the tribe of Naphtali was okay.

6. [Josh.19: 40]. The placing of the tribe of Dan was not okay. Their inheritance was too little for them. [Josh.19:47] They could not possess their inheritance even up to the time of the reign of Judges. [Judges 18:1-2]. That meant they lived on someone’s inheritance for all that time.
7. [Josh.17: 8]. The placing of the tribe of Manasseh and Ephraim, was not okay
Manasseh occupied cities which belong to Ephraim. [Josh.17:8-10].

 

THOSE HEBREW MOTHERS PROPHESIED THE INHERITANCE OF THEIR CHILDREN AT THEIR BIRTH.
47 So Ephesus here sets us like Joshua, positionally. You notice, Joshua, after crossing over the land and taking the land, then he divided the land. "Ephraim here, Manasseh's here, and this one here, Gad here, Benjamin here." He divided the land.
And notice. Oh, this just burns our hearts. Each one of those Hebrew mothers giving birth to those children, she spoke the very place in her labor pains, where they would be positioned in the Promised Land. Oh, it's a great study. If we could only go into it in details, which would take hours after hours. ... Someday when we get our church fixed, I'd just like to come and take a solid month or two, just stay right in it. Watch when they, each one of those mothers, when she called out, "Ephraim," when she was in labor, positionally placed him where his feet were setting in oil. Just exactly every one of them where they were at...
And Joshua, not knowing this, but by inspiration, led of the Holy Spirit, after being into the promised land, give each man his promise, exactly what the Holy Spirit promised through the birth back there.

THE HOLY GHOST POSITIONALLY SETS THE 5 OFFICES IN THE CHURCH. [N.T]
50 How that God has set some in the church, through the labor pains... Oh, they get tremendous sometime. When a church is groaning under the persecution of the outside world, believing on the Lord Jesus, that the promise of the Holy Ghost is just as real to us as it was to Pentecost, how they groan and cry under labor pains. But when they are born, and positionally born into the Kingdom of God, then the Holy Ghost has set in the church, some apostles, some prophets, some teachers, some pastors, some evangelists. Then He's give into there, speaking with tongues, interpretation of tongues, knowledge, wisdom, gifts of healing, all kinds of miracles.

YOU CAN NEVER RAISE CORN IN EPHRAIM'S CORNER, IF YOU'RE MANASSEH.
51 Where the church is... Now, this is my purpose of doing this. The church is always trying to take somebody else's corner. But don't do that. You can never raise corn in Ephraim's corner, if you're Manasseh. You've got to take your place in Christ, positionally take it.
Oh, it gets deep and rich when we get in here, how that God puts one in the church to speak with tongues, another... Now, we have been taught many times, we all have to speak with tongues. That's wrong. "We all got to do it." No, we don't. They all didn't do one thing, each one was...
52 Each... The land was provided and divided up by inspiration. And each one ...I could take the Scriptures and show it to you exactly, that he put them in the place where they was supposed to be, positionally, how that the two half tribes was to stay across the river, how that their mothers cried that in their birth, and how that each place was supposed to be.

YOU CAN'T MIX TWO OR THREE DIFFERENT MINISTRIES TOGETHER
140 ... Now, I haven't had a prayer line of this type for a long, long time. How many remembers my commission when we built the Tabernacle here? He said, "Do the work of an evangelist." Didn't say I was an evangelist. Said, "Do the work of an evangelist (See?), for the hour will come when that's to be changed." And that hour is arriving. All right.
Now, in this, He... You can't mix two or three different ministries together, pastor and evangelize the same time. You can't be a prophetand maybe a pastor at the same time (See?), 'cause you have different works, different ministry.

SPIRITUAL FOOD IN DUE SEASON. 65.07.18E

FIND OUT WHAT YOU ARE IN THE BODY, AND JUST BE WHAT YOU ARE
204 Ephraim doesn’t want to stay. One of them go over here, we find the Manasseh just over here, say, "Oh, my, the Lord's give me a good cornfield." Then here comes over here a Gad, said, "Well, now, now, wait a minute." Said, "I'm supposed to raise oats, but I'm going to get corn too. Hallelujah." See? You ain't got nothing to do with corn; get oats; oats is your part to raise. You ain't supposed to herd sheep when you're supposed to herd cattle. God wants to place the church. But every one of them wants to do the same thing. "Hallelujah." You can't tell them a thing about it. No, no. They still got that goaty nature, "Butt, butt, butt, butt, butt, butt, butt." See, you can't tell them. That's right. Now, isn't that true? And you can't place the church. See?

MANIFESTED SONS OF GOD. . 60.05.18

THE HEADS OF THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL ARE REPRESENTED AS THE 4 LIVING CREATURES.
323 Now, if you'll notice, Dan is the head of three tribes; Judah is the head of three tribes; Reuben is the head of three tribes , and Ephraim is the head of three tribes. Three four's is twelve, the twelve tribes of Israel. See each one with their banner; and the banner of Judah was a lion; the banner of Reuben, man; the banner of Ephraim, an ox; the banner of Dan was an eagle.

REV. CHAP.4.PT.3.THRONE.MERCY. 645-716. 61.01.08

THE TRIBAL BANNERS OF DAN, JUDAH, REUBEN AND EPHRAIM TYPES THE 4 GOSPELS
347 Now, let's just go back and see Matthew 10:1. Then we're going to close just in about another five, ten minutes, at the most, the Lord willing. All right, let's get Matthew 10; see if Matthew guards the Acts of the Apostles.
Did you think that God don't put a guard around His Word? Here's that ox, lion, man, eagle. Isn't it still setting at those gates right here on earth right now? They're the Gospels, the four Gospels. See? And you notice, every way they went they went straight forward. They don't contradict one another; they stay with one another. See? One goes with the shrewdness of a man; the other one goes with the swiftness of an eagle; the other one's a pastor... One's evangelist, to fly like evangelist. See? The other one's a pastor; the other's sturdy; See, guarded on every side, God guarding this Holy Ghost Gospel. Believe it, brother. All right.

REV. CHAP.4.PT.3.THRONE.MERCY. 645-716. 61.01.08

THE TRIED, PLACED, HOLY GHOST FILLED, SPOTLESS, WRINKLELESS, BLAMELESS, BLEMISHLESS CHURCH, WHICH HE IS COMING FOR.
205. The church is supposed to be predestinated unto the adoption of children, where God can take a man and adopt him into the family and give him something that... First, try that and see if it’s right. The Bible said try the spirits. This man claims a certain thing; try it and see if it's right. If it's as right, move right with it. Then say, "Lord, send us something else." Keep moving (See?); just keep moving say, "Every fellow take his place." Then you're going to see the church of God begin to get its place. Then is when the Philistines will go to backing up. The shorts will go off, hair will grow down, faces will be washed; cigars will be missing. That's right. When the church begins to get into its mighty power, when they have an Ananias and Sapphira, few of them. Yes, sir. You'll see when that holy church stands together in its power, positionally placed as sons of God, adopted into the family of God, powerful church standing there in its glory. Oh, that's what He's coming for.

MANIFESTED SONS OF GOD. 60.05.18

THE CHURCH NEEDS TO BE TAUGHT THE IMPORTANCE OF LINING UP WITH GOD, WITH HIS WORD, WITH EACH OTHER, WALKING UPRIGHT, SOBERLY BEFORE ALL.
52 And there's where the church is failing today: on that walk. Do you know that even your own behavior can knock somebody else out of getting healed? Your misbehaviour of unconfused sins of you believers can cause this church to bitterly fail. And at the day of the judgment you'll be responsible for every bit of it.
57 Why did they die, innocent men? Because one man stepped out of the line. You see the reason this needs to be taught? The church lining up, lining up with the Word of God, lining up with God and lining up with each other, walking perfectly upright, soberly, before all men, fearing God. Because one man stole a garment and done something that he should not do, took the life of sixteen men. I think it was sixteen, maybe more. I believe it was sixteen men that were dead.
Joshua called, said, "There's something wrong. God made the promise, and something's wrong."
When we bring the sick up before us and they fail to be healed, we need to call a solemn fast, call an assembly. Something's wrong somewhere. God made the promise. God's got to stick to that promise, and He will do it.

EPHESIANS PARALLELS JOSHUA 60.05.15E

I trust, you have read from the messages of God’s mouth piece to this age about the 5 predestinated, ordained Ministerial Offices namely: Apostles [Missionaries], Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers.

You have also read how that they back up one another, and not working against one another.

All of them are needed for the perfection of the bride.

You cannot have 2 or more offices at the same time, but any one of them can be called to do the work of an Evangelist.

Each minister is cut differently, nurtured differently, natured differently, made and placed differently.

Ministers must know their calling and position to avoid crisscrossing in the race, thereby meddling up the work of perfecting the bride, uniting and preparing her for the rapture.

I wish all of you my Christian love and God’s grace, and victorious life.

God bless you.

Brother Martin Tombe.

Pastor: Restored Bible Truth Assembly.
