We have gone through much Restoration in the Church over the last 70 years as missing Ascension Gifts were focused on one at a time till all five were back in place.

Unfortunately, in our zeal and excitement to have them back and accepted we didn’t hold to the highest New Testament Standards and Order.

From Restoration To Reformation To Culmination

In far too many cases we just let a lot of things slide that we should not have. Now it is time for a Reformation of the Restoration, that we actually move into conformity to the Blueprint that is laid out in the New Testament.

Where previously God was was raising up Restoration voices, now He is raising up Reformation voices in Ecclesia. You can see and hear voices that speak to both a National Level and those that speak to a Regional Level calling for course corrections especially regarding the Apostolic and Prophetic, which seemed to be the two hardest works of Restoration to find broad acceptance, and in some circles still face major resistance.

These course corrections must come! We must not let some of what we have tolerated go as we have before. It is time we look like the New Testament. Even as some fought and resisted the Restoration previously, now some are fighting and resisting the Reformation.

Face it, we are creatures of habit that don’t really like change. We want to do what we do, because we are comfortable doing it. But we can and we must do better. We have made progress through the Restoration, now we need to finish it through Reformation.

On the other side of this Reformation is the Culmination Of the Ages. This is where all the works of Restoration combine and work together in maturity according to the Blueprint, because Wise Master Builders have brought the corrections at Foundational Levels in Synergistic Partnership with the Revelation from Mature Prophetic Reformers.

This is not the time to think we have arrived…this is the time to buckle in and finish what has been started. Hear the call of the Voices of Reformation and yield to and implement the processes. We can do it…and we must! If not us…then who? If not now…when?

We Have Gone From One Ditch To Another.

We have taught Five-fold Ministry since the 80’s, But only in reality accepted Evangelists, Pastors & Teachers, and had a Three-fold Ministry.

Now, we still teach the Five-fold Ministry, But everyone wants to be an Apostle or Prophet, and in many cases we have a Two-fold Ministry.

Both the Three-fold Ministry of the 80’s was a ditch as is the Two-fold Ministry of today.

The New Testament Pattern is still a Five-fold Ministry where all 5 Ministry Functions of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, & Teachers are Synergystically Working Together as a Team.

We will not see the growth and development of Ecclesia apart from this. Let us get out of the ditches and get back to the balance of the Middle of the Road of the New Testament Pattern.

Thoughts On Relationships

It takes two to have a Relationship.

If you are always the one calling or chasing and there is nothing coming back the other way, there is no Relationship.

Relationships require give and take, two way communication; they are a dialogue, not a monologue.

These principles hold true in every type of Relationship:

Husband & Wife
Two Friends
Mentor & Protege
Father & Son
Employer & Employee

If you can’t reach them or talk to them, you are really not in Relationship. You are in a one-sided dysfunctional arrangement… Not a Relationship.

Perhaps as many are looking for Fathers these days, they would do well to keep these thoughts in mind.

Great Middle of the Night Thoughts by my Brother, Apostle Jim Becton.

It had not been a lack of the 5 ascension gift ministries operating in a church, many churches have had that even with a pastoral paradigm! It has actually been a loss of relational Fathers and Sons in generation synergy! (Young and old joined together…)

What we have failed to grasp is that City/Regional apostolic leaders have a different perception of how the Regional Ekklesia functions! It is not like a church staff and having fivefold leaders, but it is a higher perspective of the kingdom!

Those with the translocal and trans-generational insight and wisdom will see the kingdom as the higher goal and the gifting secondary to the corporate anointing! The emphasis is on the leaders facilitating the growth of the body through equipping and empowering the saints in ministry and for ministry! (Works of service)

They will see that “evangelists” and “elders” are the key to mobilizing and…
