Part II: The Prophetic Five-Fold Word of 1993:
On the evening of April 15, 1993, while sitting quietly in my living room, I asked the Lord a question, “What is the five fold ministry all about. How is it to work? “
Here is what I wrote down that night: (Continuation of yesterday’s blog entry)

There will be NO TOP DOG in this church structure. The apostle is not the top dog, neither is the prophet, evangelist, pastor, or teacher. The day of the super pastor, super evangelist, super teacher, and super prophet are gone. Instead we will be in a new day, a day of the supernatural pastor, the supernatural evangelist, the supernatural teacher, the supernatural prophet, and the supernatural apostle. No office will be greater or lesser than another. In the past we have been fed teaching emphasizing the greater spiritual gifts by the way that they are listed in the Bible, and blew it, for that is not true. Beware we do not do the same thing to the five fold offices.
Only as the members of the five fold ministry allow their star to rotate, will they see “the light of Jesus” radiating from them. That rotating (Circle on the diagram) is the life flow of the Church!
I see in the spirit, like on a clear night the sky being full of stars displaying the splendor of the heavens, so the earth will become like the heavens, each Spirit lead, five (fold ministry) pointed star local body, glimmering, making up county, state, and national galaxies of stars. When the Lord returns all these star galaxies around the world will come together to shine in the Second Coming or the Feast of Lights in its “fullness”, Jesus Christ.
The Lord showed me how these offices worked in Acts 2 when on Pentecost a “measure of His Spirit” birthed His Church, and those same offices brought “unity”, gave “knowledge of the Son of God”, began to “mature the saints”, and gave “stature or form”. (Ephesians 4: 13) The Body of Christ will mature into His “fullness” as His Second Coming approaches.
An apostle had to be an eye witness of Jesus Christ in the First Century, and Paul defended His apostleship by having his road to Damascus experience. An apostle in the end times church too will have a revelation of Jesus Christ, not in a vision of His earthly or His resurrected body, but as a revelation of His Body, His Church, seeing the big picture, the reason for all five points of the star.
The apostle will see the book of Revelation, the last book of the Bible, becoming fulfilled. Instead of the book being viewed as eschatology, as a book of end times tragedies and joys (Biblical scholars were blinded in their charts and theories of Jesus’ First Coming, why would they not be any different in His Second Coming?), the apostle will see it as it’s subtitle reads, The Revelation of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit will open his eyes to reveal Jesus’ Church, His end time’s body to the apostle.
The Old Testament priesthood is archaic: the New Testament priesthood is going from its birthing in Acts 2 to its fulfillment in the “fullness of Christ”. The Church is about to experience a newness, another drastic change in its preparation for the communion of the Bride. It will learn how to “sing a new song” not only individually, but corporately. It will learn worship that they thought only could happen in the heavenlies as depicted in the book of Revelations, but that worship will be activated in the earth.
The Church will experience a “communion” of worship with the heavenlies and the Church on the earth. The heavenlies too sense His soon return, and will join in with the saints on earth, so when the trumpet sounds the groom's coming, His Bride will be ready and waiting because she will be in the act of worshiping, adoring, exalting, lifting up her coming Groom. The Church, the Bride, is about to experience a “true romance” as it anticipates its coming Groom. This will take place in her worship and in the relationship of her members to the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and to each other in a depth that she has never yet experienced.
So the apostle will “see over” the local star, or national, or international galaxy, not “oversee” it as church leaders have done in the past. The apostle can not do this without the other four points or offices of the five fold ministry, or they can not see the whole picture. Rejecting one of the other offices by not communicating, serving, receiving, being accountable to, or accepting them will cause spiritual blindness and cause the apostle to see “only dimly” or “in part” when the Holy Spirit wants to show the apostle the “fullness of Christ” for his local body and clarity.
