The 10 Important Dimensions of the Apostolic

by Dr. Tim Early

1 – In the Beginning God…let there be light: Genesis 1:1-3...It began with God...

2 – Patterns and Symbols of the Apostolic Spirit and the Ascension Ministries – Old Testament – The truth is, before the Apostolic Ministry was established in the New Testament, the Lord provided appearances of it in symbols, types, shadows, and pre – New Testament Patterns. From the building aspects of Moses' Tabernacle, David's five smooth stones {the Apostle which struck the head of Goliath in 1 Samuel 16}, Deborah and Barak as a synergistic pattern of apostle and prophet {Judges 4-5, thus producing a song of sound into the regions through their cohesion and covenant connectivity. Take note that the sound of His presence always accompanies His movements in the earth. If there is a message, there is a song, a word, a prophetic utterance, and a sound, or the sound of HIS presence...

3 - Jesus Christ, the Chief Apostle: Hebrews 3:1...Jesus Christ is the pattern of Apostleship. If you want to learn of apostleship to the corporate anointing, go to the pattern or manufacture. For he gave some {apostles} to the assemblies first, the original divine order for his corporate body…1 Corinthians 12:28...Proton Ministries, first things first, which leads to After THAT, not AfterMATH...

4 - The Original Twelve: Revelation 21:14: Matthew 10...The original twelve witnessed the life, death, and resurrection power of Jesus Christ. They are the foundation of apostleship in the New Testament and what I call "Pre-Ascension Apostles. Though continuing in apostolic ministry after Jesus' resurrection {except Judas}, they worked together in cohesion and covenant community with another group of apostles acknowledged in a healthier theological expression as "Post-Ascension Apostles."

5 – The 70 – The Seventy {Luke 10} in Jesus' day did the work of apostles; they were apostolic Like and not Apostolic in LIFE. They were not set apostles. Read of the Apostolic Life in 1 Corinthians 4, 2 Corinthians 4, and 2 Corinthians 6…Whether you are called to apostolic - LIKE or apostolic - LIFE, the key to being an apostle is also to be an

6 – Post Ascension Apostles: Among them were Paul, Barnabas, Silas, etc. They did not walk with Jesus as the original twelve, but are confirmed by scripture as being apostles. Below is a brief list for other post-ascension apostles.

1 - Erastus: Acts 19:22
2 - Apollos: 1 Corinthians 4:6-9
3 - Tychius: 2 Timothy 4:12
4 - Epaphroditus: Philippians 2:25
5- Titus: 2 Corinthians 8:23
6 - Judas: Acts 15:23; 1 Thessalonians 2:6
7 - Junia {feminine}: Romans 16:7
8 - The Two Unnamed Apostles: 2 Corinthians 8:23
9 - Andronicus: Romans 16:7
10 - Silas {Silvanus} Acts 15:23;
11 - Matthias: Acts 1:26
12 - Timothy {Timotheus} Acts 19:22
13 - Barnabas: Acts 4:36; 11:22-30; 14:1, 4. 14
14 - Paul: Acts 14:14; 22:21

If there were only twelve to qualify by walking with Jesus Christ, then where did all of these post ascension apostles come from, and why? Why did God continue with more apostles after the resurrection of Jesus Christ? Not forgetting, there were other apostolic fathers long after Paul the apostle, some of them were disciples of John including Polycarp, Ignatius and Irenaeus disciples of Polycarp , Eusebius the father of church history, and the African Christian Tertullian of the 3rd century A.D. These and others hold to the critical recognition of apostleship and espousal to its authority after the canon of scripture.

8 - Apostolic Elders Today: These are today's ministries, which operate in apostolic leadership and anointing, but are not called to walk in the depths of the life of an apostle. For one is apostolic-like, and the other, apostolic-life. In Luke 10, the Seventy did apostolic work, but were not called, commissioned, or set as apostles in such level or in such degree of divine order. These men and women of God walk in apostolic mentality, some having first to have once been a pastoral pond now and apostolic river. Acts 14:23, Titus 1:5-9

9 – Apostolic Church - Apostolic Assemblies, Kingdom Communities: This is the Apostolic church today, as apostles and elders in the book of Acts [Activation} worked closely together in covenant synergy and oneness of purpose. The divine order of Acts were {1} Apostleship, {2} Eldership, {3} Discipleship, {4} producing sonship…After the book of Acts the focus is more on sonship than discipleship. However, there is related Greek words which lends to the importance of learning and growth in grace. Therefore, discipleship makes way for sonship. Our sonship IN HIM, and in God's design sonship in appointed relationships ordained of the Lord, of His choosing, to HIS glory, and of HIS order...

10 – Apostolic Message or Movement, Apostolic Wave, Apostolic Reformation and Technologies, and Apostolic Destiny: This is the current move of God over the entire earth, the message, mission, and ministry of the apostolic dimension. This is the gospel of the kingdom being preached and established in present truth across the globe, as a powerful witness that God is reforming {transforming} the church to reform {transform} the nations into His Increase and Government, his administration and rule, and to align earth to heaven, so that heaven can invade earth through a people of His passion. That within itself is an appearing of the Lord, the Multiplied Christ, Christ the Body...

Bear in mind, whatever the Lord God set out in motion to accomplish for His intended purpose, that then, translates into the language and demonstration of the Apostolic Dimension today. God in his infinite wisdom begin with the Light, as the light belongs in the darkness. According to John 1, the purpose was the same. In the beginning was the word and the word was with God, and the Word was God… in Him was life, and the life became the Life of men. All things begins and continues in progression with God first bringing forth light into the world.
