1 the twelve

1. The Twelve

Those personally chosen and sent by the Lord Jesus Christ.

Includes only the twelve.

  • “When morning came, he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated apostles.” Luke 6:13

  • “In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. After his suffering, he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.” Acts 1:1-3


The twelve 2

The Twelve (#2)

Those personally chosen and sent by the Lord Jesus Christ. Includes only the twelve.

  • “Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day. They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles.” Acts 2:41-43

  • “For it seems to me that God has put us apostles on display at the end of the procession, like men condemned to die in the arena. We have been made a spectacle to the whole universe, to angels as well as to men.” 1 Corinthians 4:9


The twelve 3

The Twelve(#3)

Those personally chosen and sent by the Lord Jesus Christ. Includes only the twelve.

  • “And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues.” 1 Corinthians 12:28

  • “Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born. For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.” 1 Corinthians 15:7-9


The twelve 4

The Twelve (#4)

Those personally chosen and sent by the Lord Jesus Christ. Includes only the twelve.

  • “Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.” Ephesians 2:19-20

  • “In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, which was not made known to men in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God's holy apostles and prophets. This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 3:4-6


The twelve 5

Those personally chosen and sent by the Lord Jesus Christ. Includes only the twelve.

The Twelve (#5)

  • “It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-15


The twelve 6

The Twelve (#6)

  • “The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.” Revelation 21:14

Those personally chosen and sent by the Lord Jesus Christ. Includes only the twelve.


Matthias or paul

Matthias or Paul?

There can only be twelve!

  • “‘For,’ said Peter, ‘it is written in the book of Psalms, ‘May his place be deserted; let there be no one to dwell in it,’ and, ‘May another take his place of leadership.’ Therefore it is necessary to choose one of the men who have been with us the whole time the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from John's baptism to the time when Jesus was taken up from us. For one of these must become a witness with us of his resurrection.’ So they proposed two men: Joseph called Barsabbas (also known as Justus) and Matthias. Then they prayed, ‘Lord, you know everyone's heart. Show us which of these two you have chosen to take over this apostolic ministry, which Judas left to go where he belongs.’ Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was added to the eleven apostles.” Acts 1:20-26

  • “It seems apparent from the results of this choice, that the eleven actually created only a ‘Type Two’ apostle. Matthias is never mentioned after he was chosen by them. Later, it was made obvious that God’s choice was to replace Judas with Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles.” Reverend Greg Robertson, Jakarta


Type 2 other apostles

“‘Outstanding among the apostles,’ if taken in the context that there are only twelve, must mean that they were living with and ministering with those who were numbered among the twelve.” Greg Robertson, M.A., M.Div.

Those sent by other Christians for a special cause. Includes the use of the word “apostle” in a more broad sense.

Type 2Other Apostles

  • “Then the apostles and elders, with the whole church, decided to choose some of their own men and send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas. They chose Judas (called Barsabbas) and Silas, two men who were leaders among the brothers. With them they sent the following letter: The apostles and elders, your brothers, To the Gentile believers in Antioch, Syria and Cilicia: Greetings. We have heard that some went out from us without our authorization and disturbed you, troubling your minds by what they said.” Acts 15:22-24

  • “Greet Andronicus and Junias, my relatives who have been in prison with me. They are outstanding among the apostles, and they were in Christ before I was.” Romans 16:7


Type 3 false apostles

Type 3 -- False Apostles

False Apostles who claim to have the same function and authority as the twelve.

  • “For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough. But I do not think I am in the least inferior to those "super-apostles." I may not be a trained speaker, but I do have knowledge. We have made this perfectly clear to you in every way. Was it a sin for me to lower myself in order to elevate you by preaching the gospel of God to you free of charge?” 2 Corinthians 11:4-7


False apostles 2

False Apostles who claim to have the same function and authority as the twelve.

False Apostles(#2)

  • “And I will keep on doing what I am doing in order to cut the ground from under those who want an opportunity to be considered equal with us in the things they boast about. For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” 2 Corinthians 11”12-15

  • “I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false.” Revelation 2:2


A last days warning

A Last Days Warning!

  • “At that time if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ !' [“The Christ” means “The Anointed One”] or, 'Look, there he is!' do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect -- if that were possible. So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.” Mark 13:21-23

  • “This is one of the problems I've found when I first began associating with prophets and apostles. I began to understand they're the ones making up the new wineskin for the body of Christ, which I call the New Apostolic Reformation. Yet I was very surprised to find that many prophets don't even trust or like apostles around; and vice versa, many apostles don't trust or like prophets around.”

  • “The Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders is a peer-level group of prophets, now under my apostolic leadership. This to me is an example of how prophets relate to apostles on the broader scale.”

  • “Why has God accelerated the process? There are several reasons. We know much more about strategic prophetic intercession than we did before. We have fought and won numerous battles in the invisible world. Methods of spiritual warfare are no longer mysteries. And perhaps most important of all, the government of the church, headed by apostles and prophets, is now in place.” C. Peter Wagner http://www.globalharvestministries.org/home.qry?ID=419

  • We [Hamon and Cindy Jacobs] feel like the seven years of plenty will be condensed into 1999 and then the year 2000 will be like the seven years of famine. We sense that as far as Y2K is concerned, there will be some blackouts/brownouts in some areas. There will be shakeups in some areas, especially big cities. But we believe that God is going to show the prophets where, how, and what is going to happen.”

  • But the Holy Spirit prophetically stated that this apostolic anointing was being granted for two reasons. The first reason was that I had been faithful in multiplying the prophet anointing that had been given, so now that anointing was being doubled by the addition of the apostolic anointing (Mt. 25:28, 29) The second reason was that the apostolic anointing had been given for the purpose of pioneering, establishing and taking a fatherhood responsibility for the restoration and propagation of the office of the prophet.” Prophets and the Prophetic Movement: God’s Prophetic Move Today by Bill Hamon, Destiny Image, 1990, p. 172.

  • “Y2K is a man-made problem which will cause a disruption of communication like the Tower of Babel, and for a season, communication will be shut off. Y2K itself will not be the major shaking, but the shakings will come with the domino effect.”

  • “God is about to build a new church -- a "street"church, built on the foundation of the new apostles and prophets that He is about to raise up, just like the early church. (For this is the way GOD builds His true church -- He starts with His new apostles, and builds the whole thing on them). The true church is an "organism" -- not an organization. It is built out of PEOPLE -- it is nothing to do with buildings. And it is built on the foundation of His true apostles and prophets. This is what we are about to see again in our day. Glory to God! A glorious church, a spotless Bride truly befitting the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. We live in the most momentous (and dangerous) of times.”THE BRIDE WILL LEAVE CHRISTENDOM by Andrew Strom

  • "I also understand how the nature of some of these revelations would cause theological problems for some. One of these would certainly be the way that I met and talked with many Old and New Testament characters. As well as prominent people in church history who are now dead. "page 20

  • “Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you.” Deut. 18:10-12
