God’s Apostle

As we walked into the rural church in Tamil Nadu India the banner proclaimed that the Rev. Doctor Ron Reed and Mrs. Barbara Hosted was coming to teach the pastors gathered for the Bible Conference. There was something lost in translation. I am not a Doctor, I decline to be called Reverend and Barbara and I share the last name Reed, not hosted. The confusion eased as we got started but I still smile when I think of it. At least they didn’t call me the Apostle Ron.

In John 6:46-47 we read: Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen the Father. Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life.

Jesus is sent by God from Heaven as His only begotten Son. He is the only man who has seen God and was sent by God to bring salvation and eternal life to those who believe. Jesus is the Apostle of God, the one sent by God. He is the Apostle and High Priest of our heavenly calling. An apostle is a messenger sent with authority. Jesus is God’s Son, sent by God with God’s message of good news for mankind. The good news: forgiveness of sin, salvation, eternal life for all who will believe in Jesus Christ, God’s messenger.

Today, many are calling themselves prophets, bishops, apostles, etc.; But pinning yourself with a title doesn’t qualify you for it. Jesus is the qualified Apostle. He is the High Priest of our heavenly calling. He is the acceptable and accepted sacrifice for sin. He is the one who turns us from death to life, from lost to found, from hopeless to hope. Put your trust God’s Apostle today.

Question: Will you please elaborate on this a little for me? What about the Apostle Paul, where does he fit in? ... is it possible to actually be an apostle in this modern age? Just curious about what you would say about this. Thanks in advance :)

Answer: The Apostolic office was established by Jesus and Paul and the others were apostles of Jesus Christ by the commandment, will or authority of God. (see intro to Paul's letters). Today, it may be that some hold that office and I can think of a few who seem to, but there are many who lay claim to the title on their own. Today, there are bishops and pastors who should be honored for their service, but Jesus is the unique Apostle of God sent with and as the good news. If someone proclaims themselves and apostle, watch out. If someone is proclaimed an apostle, it better be by the will and command of God.
