    SHALOM SAINTS!

    AN APOSTLE IS A MAN WHO IS PART OF THE FIVEFOLD MINISTRY AS WE SEE FROM EPHESIANS 4:11. HE IS A MAN THAT IS SENT FROM GOD TO SET THINGS IN ORDER. LET’S LOOK AT AN APOSTLE PAUL HE WAS GOING FROM CHURCH TO CHURCH SETTING THINGS IN ORDER LIKE WHAT HE DID AT THE CHURCH AT CORINTHIANS TELLING THEM HOW VOCAL SPIRITUAL GIFTS SHOULD OPERATE AND THAT WOMEN SHOULD NOT PREACH ETC. HE MOVED FROM CHURCH TO CHURCH GALATIANS, EPHESIANS AND EVEN TO THE CHURCHES THAT WERE IN ASIA(PAUL’S MISSIONARY JOURNEYS)

    LETS COME TO OUR DAY. OUR PROPHET BRO BRANHAM VISITED THE WORLD SEVEN TIMES. WE CONSIDER THOSE JOURNEYS AS MISSIONARY JOURNEYS LIKE THAT OF AN APOSTLE PAUL. HE WAS SETTING THINGS IN ORDER FOR ALL THE MESSAGE CHURCHES AROUND THE GLOBE AS WE ALL KNOW THAT MESSAGE CHURCHES ABIDE BY THE CHURCH ORDER DOCTRINE SET BY ELIJAH OF OUR DAY.

    EPHESIANS 4:11
    1TIMOTHY 2:9

    QUOTATIONS
    And then we find out the apostle is a special man. He’s a—he’s a setterin-order. He’s a man that’s sent from God to set the things in order. (WARNING THEN JUDGMENT title JEFF.IN V-8 N-3 63-0724)

    A word “apostle” means “one that’s sent.” I’ve often wondered why the missionary ever wanted to be called a missionary. A missionary is an apostle. The word “missionary” means “one sent.” “Apostle” means “one sent.” A missionary is an apostle. (POSITION IN CHRIST.title CHICAGO.IL 55-0116A)

    SHALOM SAINTS!

    THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PROPHET MESSENGER AND PROPHET OF THE FIVE-FOLD MINISTRY
    Major prophet
    In Smyrnaen Church Age the prophet says one messenger for each age receives what the Spirit has to say to that age and that one messenger is the messenger to the true Church.
    In Laodecian Church Age the prophet says the prophet-messenger of Revelation 10:7 must already be in the land. Once more THUS SAITH THE LORD must be here, ready to be manifested with infallible vindication.
    So from the above quotations we can see that in every age or generation God sends one messenger(major prophet) with his word to that age. That prophet will be a promised prophet like Malachi 4:5 who is the prophet of our day or Isaiah 40:3 the one crying in the wilderness. just to mention a few.
    Minor prophet
    In 1Kings 18:4 There was Elijah and also other 100 prophets of God. I can point Elijah as the major prophet or messenger of that age. We don’t even know the names of these minor prophets.
    In 1Kings 19:18 There is Elijah and other 7000 prophets which never bowed down to Baal but Elijah did not know any of them.
    From the scriptures we can see that there is a difference between a major prophet and a minor prophet. Another example given by our Sunday School Superintendent of Saint Paul and prophet Agabus can also help us to see that these two prophets are different.
    Conclusion
    In Ephesians 4:11 It says He gave them apostles, prophets ……. and from this scripture we can see that it speaks of prophets [plural] which are the prophets of the Five-fold Ministry{many membered ministry for the perfection of the bride}. In Malachi 4:5 it speaks of a prophet [singular] who is the prophet of the age we are living in. So l believe there is a difference between the two prophets.
