MY FATHER! MY FATHER! (From Apostolic Teaching Fathers)

Apostle Jim Becton wrote this a year ago but it is just as relevant today 1 year later!

2 Kings 2:9-12- And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you?” Elisha said, “Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.”

So he said, “You have asked a hard thing. Nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you (if you see me ‘eye to eye’), it shall be so for you; but if not, it shall not be so.”

Then in happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.”

And Elisha saw it, and he cried out, “MY FATHER, my FATHER, the chariot of Israel and its horsemen!” So he saw him no more…

2 Kings 13:14- Elisha had…

A clarion call for mutual accountability while maintaining the unity of the faith and the unity of the Spirit by Apostle Don Atkin.

review leadership

Don, an apostle—[special messenger appointed and commissioned and sent out] not from [any body of] men nor by or through any man, but by and through Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and God the Father, Who raised Him from among the dead—

You probably recognize this as the first verse in Paul’s epistle to the believers in the territory of Galatia. I have used my name to make a point.  Our sending out in 1968 was affirmed and confirmed by the local congregation, and by the laying on of the hands of elders (as Paul and Barnabas were sent from Antioch).  We also know what Paul understood:

When He, Who had chosen and set me apart [even] before I was born and had called me by His grace (His undeserved favor and blessing), saw fit and was pleased to reveal (unveil, disclose) His Son within me so that I might proclaim Him,

Administration of Apostles and Elders!

A great word by my Brother, Apostle Jim Becton.

James Becton Ministries/ EaglesVision Apostolic Co!

Matt.12:25- But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them:

“Every kingdom (jurisdiction, territory, region) divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided againt itself will not stand.”

The kingdom of God and the church (ekklesia) work hand in hand to carry out justice and judgment so that every region may have the rule and reign of the kingdom expressed through His commission! The Father chose “apostles and elders” to lay the framework so that what takes place in the region through delegated authority may advance in the city (church) and house. (local assembly)

These elders have varying degrees of authority and commission, as Paul the apostle told Timothy, “Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of “double honor”, especially those who labor in the work (preaching) and doctrine. (teaching)” (I. Tim. 5:17)

There are local elders and there are city elders…

The Latter Is Greater

I wrote this Blog about a year and a half ago…but felt to re-share it.

Living Faith Realities


The days we are living in are indeed some of the most exciting since the Book of Acts. All that God has ever done He is doing again, but only in greater measure. Now I can hear you thinking Prophet how can you make that kind of a statement? The simple truth is because we are living in the fulfillment of what the Word of God promises!

“‘And it shall be in the last days,’ God says, ‘That I will pour forth of My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, And your young men shall see visions And your old men shall dream dreams; Even on My bond slaves, both men and women, I will in those days pour forth of My Spirit And they shall prophesy.’Acts 2: 17 & 18 NASB

“Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may…

Dear Friends,

In January of 2012 I, Bert, was not in a good way. I went to a minister’s prayer retreat desperate for guidance and direction from the Lord. You see, someone had offered me a ministry position and asked me to dissolve Holy Fire Ministries. I turned it down immediately knowing it was not the will of the Lord.

Months later we were struggling financially and nothing was moving in the ministry. I wondered if I should not have taken the ministry position offered. In the midst of trials the soul will always doubt, just as John the Baptist wondered about the Messiah’s identity in prison (Mt. 11:2-3).

We thought about doing something else – maybe returning to the mission field, pastoring a church, and other ministry opportunities. Although we had done ministry most of our adult lives, I even contemplated leaving the ministry altogether and just starting a…
