THE NEW MAN

    As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, "Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them." Acts 13:2

    Two New Men called to an impossible task to make disciples of a Gentile nation of pagans! The work was not to fill buildings or to make names for themselves but to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ in the face of imminent danger and the promise of death!

    The very word "Apostle" means ones sent, sent to build upon a foundation of the word of God by the anointing given to them by the Holy Spirit. The work and ministry of the apostle has been lost today, replaced with the man-centered vision of filling buildings with members and not disciples for if they were disciples they would be sent out and not planted in a pew for the rest of their spiritual lives!

    The devil has dragged up a corpse from the depths of antiquity, it is the ancient Levitical priesthood, the shepherd/sheep mentality where one man, the pastor delegates to the masses. Count the times pastor is mentioned in the New Testament, very few indeed, but today he is elevated to the position of "Superstar!" This mindset would be totally foreign to Saul and Barnabas today when they would be out risking their very necks for the gospel!

    For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God. I Corinthians 1:17,18
