Revelation 12: The Woman And Dragon Explained!





By Steven Masone,11th Hour Ministry Of The Lord Jesus Christ https://www.facebook.com/Eleventh-Hour-Ministry-LJC-136182549774150/

5 years ago, concerning Dec 21st, we played with numerology...now we're back to Astrology. What next? Necromancy?
Isaiah 8:19
"When they say to you, "Consult the mediums and the spiritists who whisper and mutter," should not a people consult their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living?" Isaiah 8:19
"You are wearied with your many counsels;
let them stand forth and save you,
all those who divide the heavens,
who gaze at the stars,
who at the new moons make known
what shall come upon you.
14 Behold, they are like stubble;
the fire consumes them;
they cannot deliver themselves
from the power of the flame.
No coal for warming oneself is this,
no fire to sit before!" 





Revelation 12: 1And there appeared a great wonder (sign) in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
7And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
13And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
14And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
15And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
16And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
17And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The significance of The Woman in this story is missed by most interpretations of who she is... Israel? The Church? Mary? The Bible can, and must interpret itself.
The Law of first Mention 
The  Hermeneutical law of First Mention: The Law of First Mention may be said to be the principle that requires one to go to that portion of the Scriptures where a doctrine is mentioned for the first time and to study the first occurrence of the same in order to get the fundamental inherent meaning of that doctrine.
When this law is applied the simple precedes the complex.

A history of the development of anything will show that it sprang from something in the very simplest form (for example the steamship; airplane; automobile).
In the Scriptures the growth and development of ideas and doctrine might be illustrated by some simple word.

Throughout the history of a term it may have increased its meaning and undergone certain changes, yet the basic, original, fundamental thought is seldom lost.

The fundamental concept usually controls or is dominant in coloring every shade of idea expressed by a term in its current usage in Genesis 11.

Observe how God dated events in the Bible from the time of the creation of man, "Anno Homonis" (A.H.).
Study the doctrine concerning the wrath of God and His judgments.

Observe how God has dealt with the sinfulness of man on an international scale (Gen 6 to 8).
Observe how God must deal with the sinfulness of mankind yet in the future (Luke 17:26-30; Rev 19:15).
Study the Rainbow-Noahic Covenant which God made with man (Gen 9:1-16) and observe the following:
The Rainbow Covenant is an everlasting covenant.God entered into this covenant with all humanity.

God's obligation under this covenant, "the everlasting covenant" is never again to destroy the earth water.
Man's obligation under this covenant is to obey the four provisions of the covenant God laid down for man's benefit (Genesis 9:3-7). (Read Isa. 24:5; Rev 4:3).

Study the beginning of Hebrew history. God made a covenant with Abraham (Gen 12:1-3).
To confirm the fact that God chose Israel, read Deut. 32:8,9.

So the teaching of this "Woman' we can find in Genesis also in chapter 37:9 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
This was Joseph explaining his dream that is the exact image we see in Revelation 12 "a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars" Of course his Mother, Rachael,{ meaning Ewe mother of sheep} represented the Moon and pointing prophetically to the Bride of Christ. Jacob {Israel} The Father, the Sun. Pointing to The Son ~Jesus.
The Woman, ready to birth "The Seed" that was prophesied would come from the mother of all living..."EVE" that would destroy the same serpent/dragon who deceived her and caused the fall. "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel".
Note how the serpent cast water out of his mouth 5 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
It all started with The Woman and The Serpent, and it will all end with the Woman and the Serpent/Dragon! 

The final Woman of Revelation 12, is the Bride of Christ. The "Flood" {water always depicts peoples and nations} is the armies and followers of Antichrist, the False Prophet, the strong delusion, and his Bride Mystery Babylon. 


The earth opening is both the bloody destruction of enemies of Christ at Armageddon (first mention Gen 4:11 "And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;"} and, The Lake of Fire! The Woman is The Church {Spiritual Israel} with the seed of Abraham being ready to be birthed into her/their reward at the Second Coming of Jesus.

Laying On Of Hands Is A Ministry And Not For Novices




Image result for laying on of hands


In today's End-Time Church where Amos ' prophesy is being fulfilled...Related image



Many doctrines of the Church have fallen on deaf ears. We need to now look at a very important subject for those wanting to be used effectively by God in public ministry. That is "The Ministry Of Impartation." When I speak of impartation I meanthe ability to give unto others that which God has given to us ... either sovereignly, or through other anointed vessels (messengers) of God.

Qualifications of Ministers (Elders) 
Image result for 1 timothy 3:6 kjv
The Greek word for "impartation" is "metadidomi" meaning:
  • "to give over, i.e. share: give, impart" (Strong's);
  • "to give a share of" (Young's);
  • "to share in association with anyone, i.e. to impart, communicate" (Bullinger's);
  1.  to communicate (information, etc.); relate.
  2.  to give or bestow (something)" (Collins).
Other words we can use to help bring a clearer meaning are: "transmit, pass on, confer, transfer."
There are two main ways by which impartation happens to us:
1.  FROM GOD HIMSELF:
A sovereign, divine impartation that enables us to do what we've not been able to do before.
INumbers 11   we read that the burden of Leadership was becoming too heavy on Moses' life. When he cried out to God about this, God's response was to get Moses to gather together 70 men of the Elders of Israel:
"And the Lord said unto Moses, Gather unto Me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the elders of the people, and officers over them; and bring them unto the tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there with you.
And I will come down and talk with you there: and I will take of the spirit which is upon you, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, that you bear it not yourself alone" (Numbers 11:16-17  , KJV).
God promised to take of the spirit that was upon Moses and impart or put it upon the 70 elders, so they could carry the burden that Moses was carrying.
"And Moses went out, and told the people the words of the Lord, and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people, and sat them round about the tabernacle.
And the Lord came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon him (Moses), and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied and did not cease" (Numbers 11:24-25  , KJV).
God divinely imparted of the spirit from Moses to the 70 Elders. When that happened they began to prophesy - something they had never done before. That impartation enabled them to take on greater responsibility to support Moses, to minister to the people and to release the Holy Spirit out of their lives to bless others in a more powerful way. There was a transferring from one to another, so the one receiving could function much more like the one doing the imparting or transferring.
2.  BY THE ANOINTED LAYING HANDS ON OTHERS:
God, in His great desire to see us blessed and equipped for His service, has provided various ways and means of impacting our lives. One of those ways is the Ministry of Impartation through the laying on of hands by mature, recognized and anointed by the presbytery as well as the Spirit.... Leaders.
The more we look into the life and ministry of the Apostle Paul, the more we see his heart to give away from himself those gifts God had placed within him. He sought to see others effectively trained in matters of God; in matters of the Holy Spirit ministry. For example, look at the heart he carried when he said:
"For I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong - that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith"(Romans 1:11-12  , NKJV).
Paul's desire was to help others to rise in effective ministry through all that God had given to him. He learned that he could pass on through impartation blessings and giftings of God.
Impartation has to do with the giving and receiving of spiritual gifts, blessings, healing, baptism in the Holy Spirit, etc., for the work of the ministry. It is the transference of these "gifts" from one man or woman of God to another, especially through the laying on of hands. There is an invisible flowing of spiritual ability from one to the other. That invisible flowing goes from the spirit and heart of the imparter through the arms and hands into the spirit and heart of the one having hands laid on them.
Five areas of impartation:
1.  For BLESSINGS:
(a)  Isaac to Jacob Concerning Marriage:
"And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged ("commanded" - Wilson's) him, and said unto him, You shall not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan (See my book, "The Evil Powers of Canaan"). Arise, go to Padan-aram, to the house of Bethuel your mother's father: and take you a wife from there of the daughters of Laban your mother's brother. And God Almighty bless you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, that you may become a multitude of people; And give you the blessing of Abraham, to you and to yourseed ("offspring") with you; that you may inherit the land ...which God gave unto Abraham" (Genesis 28-1-4  , KJV).

(b)  Israel (Jacob) Blessing Joseph and His Sons:
As Israel neared the end of his life he blessed Joseph and his sons, Ephraim and Manasseh:
"And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh's head, guiding his hands wittingly("expertly, skillfully, with good success, understandingly" - Strong's); for Manasseh was the firstborn. And he blessed Joseph, and said, 'God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God Who fed me all my life long unto this day, The angel who redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in themidst of the earth.'
And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held up his father's hand to remove it from Ephraim's head unto Manasseh's head.
And Joseph said unto his father, 'Not so, my father: for this is the firstborn; put your right hand upon his head.' And his father refused, and said, 'I know it, my son, I know it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations.' And he blessed them that day, saying, 'In you shall Israel bless, saying, God shall make you as Ephraim and Manasseh:' and he did set Ephraim before Manasseh"(Genesis 48:14-20  , KJV).Image result for jacob blessing joseph
Here we see Jacob passing on through impartation the Abrahamic covenant of blessing. His prophetic insight also enabled him to know that the younger son of Joseph would be greater than the firstborn.
The laying on of hands was so important that Joseph tried to change his father's hands upon the heads of his sons. But Israel knew what he was doing and blessed accordingly.
(c)  Jesus to children:
"And they kept bringing young children to Him (Jesus) that He might touch them; and the disciples were reproving them [for it]. But when Jesus saw [it], He was indignant and pained, and said to them, 'Allow the children to come to Me - do not forbid or prevent or hinder them - for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive and accept and welcome the kingdom of God as a little child [does], positively shall not enter it at all.' And He took [the children up one by one] in His arms and (fervently invoked a) blessing, placing His hands upon them" (Mark 10:13-16  , AMP.). See also Matthew 19:13-15  .

2.  For BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT:
(a)  The Samaritan Believers:
The Samaritan believers (converted through the ministry of Philip) received the Holy Spirit as a result of Peter and John laying hands on them:
"When the apostles back in Jerusalem heard that the people of Samaria had accepted God's message, they sent down Peter and John. As soon as they arrived, they began praying for these new Christians to receive the Holy Spirit, for as yet He had not come upon any of them. For they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then Peter and John laid their hands upon these believers, and they received the Holy Spirit. When Simon saw this - that the Holy Spirit was given when the apostles placed their hands upon people's heads - he offered money to buy this power (Greek word is "exousia" meaning "delegated authority"). 'Let me have this power too,' he exclaimed, 'so that when I lay my hands on people, they will receive the Holy Spirit!' But Peter replied, 'Your money perish with you for thinking God's gift can be bought!' "Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.
23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. Because Simon was not right and had bitterness, he was disallowed to minister the Holy Ghost!
Peter and John imparted the power of the Holy Spirit to those new believers through the laying on of hands. That caused something to be clearly seen by Simon the sorcerer, so much so he wanted to buy the power! He was rebuked for his evil thinking. The things of God cannot be bought! There was a demonstration of power as the hands of the apostles released the impartation into the new believers.
TODAY, UNLESS OTHERS ARE INVITED BY THE APOSTOLIC MINISTER WHO IS PRAYING FOR ONE TO RECEIVE THE HOLY GHOST, OTHERS MAY NOT LAY HANDS UPON THEM. NOTICE... PHILIP WAS NOT EVEN INVITED TO JOIN THE APOSTLES IN THIS IMPARTATION OF THE HOLY GHOST, AS HE WAS NOT AN ORDAINED APOSTLE!
(b)  Saul of Tarsus: When Saul was converted on the road to Damascus by a sovereign and divine intervention of God, he was instructed by Jesus to go to Damascus and wait for one Ananias to come and layhands on him to receive his physical sight back and to be filled with the Holy Spirit:
"And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, Who appeared unto you in the way as you came, has sent me, that you might receive your sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost. And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and he arose, and was baptized ... And straightaway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that He is the Son of God" (Acts 9:17-20  , KJV).
As a result of Ananias' obedience to God and laying his hands on Saul, there was an impartation of the Holy Spirit from him to Saul. Saul was strengthened to proclaim Christ in a way that amazed all who heard him. True impartation strengthens us forGod's work.
(c)  The Twelve Believers at Ephesus:
Paul at Ephesus was not only able to instruct believers into a deeper revelation of understanding, but also to impart through the laying on of hands something of that deeper dimension. After they were water baptized in the name of the Lord. he laid hands on them. The result:
"And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied" (Acts 19:1-7  , KJV).
Through impartation by the laying on of hands those believers were released into a dynamic new dimension of the Holy Spirit, including the gift of prophecy.
3.  For SPIRITUAL GIFTS:
The Apostle Paul's desire to see people released into ministries through the Holy Spirit gifts is further shown in his exhortation to Timothy:
"Neglect not (or "don't be careless about") the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery ("board of elders").
Meditate ("to care for, take care for anything, so as to be able to perform it") upon these things: give yourself wholly to them; that your profiting may appear to all" (1 Timothy 4:14-15  , KJV).
"Be sure to use the abilities God has given you through His prophets when the elders of the church laid their hands upon your head. Put these abilities to work; throw yourself into your tasks so that everyone may notice your improvement and progress.
Keep a close watch on all you do and think. Stay true to what is right and God will bless you and use you to help others" (1 Timothy 4:14-16  , TLB).
An impartation was given through the laying on of hands.
"Wherefore I put you in remembrance that you stir up ("rekindle, fan into flame") the gift of God, which is in you by the putting on of my hands" (2 Timothy 1:6  , KJV).
Paul was encouraging Timothy not to forget those times of impartation he experienced when hands were laid on him.
Nor should we!
4.  For SERVICE:
(a)  The Seven Deacons:
In Acts 6   we discover the early Church ran into some problems regarding relationships and the threatening of unity. The decision was made to appoint seven deacons to care for the widows day by day. Those seven men had to have a testimony of honesty, be full of the Holy Spirit, and wisdom. Once the men were chosen the apostles gathered round them:
" ... and when they had prayed, they laid their hands on them. And the Word of God increased ("to give increase, cause to grow, enlarge" - Bullinger's); and the number of thedisciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.
And Stephen (one of the seven), full of faith and power (Greek is "dunamis" meaning "natural capability, inherent power; capability of anything; ability to perform anything; then, absolutely, not merely power capable of action, but power in action" - Bullinger's) did great wonders and miracles among the people" (Acts 6:1-8  , KJV).
Again we see something happened in the realm of the Spirit when the apostles laid hands on those seven deacons; there was a noticeable impact as a result of impartation - souls saved, signs, wonders and miracles.
(b)  Moses Handing Leadership to Joshua:
When Moses' time on this earth was about to conclude, his concern was to know who to pass the baton of Leadership on to:
"Moses said to the Lord, 'May the Lord, the God of the spirits of all mankind, appoint a man over this community to go out and come in before them, one who will lead them out and bring them in, so the Lord's people will not be like sheep without a shepherd.' So the Lord said to Moses, 'Take Joshua, son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay your hand on him. Have him stand before Eleazar the priest and the entire assembly and commission him in their presence. Give him some of your authority so the whole Israelite community will obey him. He is to stand before Eleazar the priest, who will obtain decisions for him by enquiring of the Urim ("lights, revelation") before the Lord. At his command he and the entire community of the Israelites will go out and at his command they will come in.' Moses did as the Lord commanded him. He took Joshua and had him stand before Eleazar the priest and the whole assembly. Then he laid his hands on him and commissioned him, as the Lord instructed through Moses"(Numbers 27:15-23  , NIV).
The KJV uses the word "honour" instead of "authority" and is translated as follows:
  1. "beauty, brilliancy" (Young's);
  2. "grandeur (i.e. an imposing form and appearance): beauty, comeliness, excellency, glorious, glory, honour, majesty" (Strong's);
  3. "any good quality or endowment for which a person is admired, honoured, praised"(Wilson's);
  4. "1. personal integrity; allegiance to moral principles. 2. fame or glory. 3. great respect, regard, esteem ..." (Collins).
God instructed Moses to set Joshua aside, to lay hands on him and impart some of his authority (honour) so Joshua could better lead Israel. That impartation caused the Israelites to respond to and obey Joshua's Leadership. The impartation gave Joshua a spiritual credibility that the people responded to.
In Deuteronomy 34:9   we read of Joshua receiving an impartation of wisdom from the hands and heart of Moses:
"And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened ("listened") unto him, and did as the Lord commanded Moses."
Joshua received more wisdom for Leadership as a result of that impartation from the hands of Moses.
5.  For THE HEALING MINISTRY:
The subject of divine healing has long been a difficult and conflicting one in certain parts of the Body of Christ. Yet when we look to the Scripture we discover it should be a normal part of Christian life and ministry.
(a)  The Ministry of Jesus:
Jesus gave us the teaching and command that healing is "the children's bread" (Matthew 15:26  Mark 7:27  ). Jesus Himself led by example:
"When the sun was setting, the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness, and laying His hands on each one, He healed them. Moreover, demons came out of many people, shouting, You are the Son of God!" (Luke 4:40-41  , NIV).
Jesus imparted health and healing through the laying on of hands.
"And He (Jesus) came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of His disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear Him, and to be healed of their diseases: And they that were vexed ("harassed") with unclean spirits: and they were healed. And the whole multitude sought to touch Him: for there went virtue (Greek is "dunamis" meaning "power, power capable of anything") out of Him, and healed them all"(Luke 6:17-19  , KJV).
Here we see an impartation from Jesus to the sick as a result of their "making contact" with Him. The power of God went out of Him into them.
The same principle applies in the account of the woman with the issue of blood:
"And a woman, having an issue of blood twelve years, who had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, Came behind Him (Jesus), and touched the border of His garment: and immediately her issue of blood stopped. 
And Jesus said, Who touched Me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with Him said, 'Master, the multitude throng You and press You, and You say, Who touched Me?' And Jesus said, 'Somebody has touched Me: for I perceive ("to perceive, observe, obtain a knowledge of, or perceive insight into" - Bullinger's) that virtue ("dunamis") is gone out of Me.'
And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before Him, she declared unto Him before all the people for what cause she had touched Him, and how she was healed immediately.
And He said unto her, 'Daughter, be of good comfort: your faith has made you whole; go in peace'" (Luke 8:43-48  , KJV). See also Luke 13:10-13  .
(b)  Jesus Taught His Disciples:
"And when He (Jesus) had called unto Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power(Greek is "exousia" meaning "delegated authority") against unclean spirits, to cast themout, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease" (Matthew 10:1 , KJV). See also Mark 3:13-15  .
Jesus gave to His disciples what He had. That is impartation from one to another - delegated spiritual authority. He did it also to the seventy in Luke 10:1-9  .
"And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover" (Mark 16:17-18  , KJV).
With this exception, all believers may lay hands on the sick, however, in service when we are assembled together...'Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:' James 5: 14 shows Apostolic authority of Church Government must be observed.
After Paul's experience of being shipwrecked at sea, he was washed ashore on to the island of Melita. Not only did he survive being bitten by a deadly snake, he took the initiative and prayed for the chief man's sick father:
"His father was sick in bed, suffering from fever and dysentery. Paul went in to see him and, after prayer, placed his hands on him and healed him. When this had happened, the rest of the sick on the island came and were cured" (Acts 28:1-10  , NIV). See also Acts 3:1-13  Acts 5:12-16   (Peter's shadow became a point or instrument of impartation); Acts 19:11-12   (handkerchiefs and Paul's hands imparted healing to many).
It is up to every pastor to teach and equip his people in altar service ministry as well as other ministries of the church. However, when a pastor gives his pulpit to other ministers, while they minister, they must have apostolic authority over the service. Any rebellious spirit with like Simon the Sorcerer must be rebuked immediately! Peter saw (gift of discernment of spirits) that Simon wanted power...for his own selfish reasons and that it stemmed from bitterness. He said to Simon:
 For  I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. ' Acts 8:22 So it is incumbent upon every Apostolic minister to guard the operation of the "gifts and callings" of the Holy Ghost!
    Image result for Hebrews 6:1- 2 “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.”

        Being a doctrine, it is clearly under the authority of Apostolic Ministry in it's administration!

      God is not the author of confusion, but of order. That means God has a plan and the plan is organized in such as way to allow the plan to be carried out. From life we know that when men work together, they need organization. There must be a leader who has the first responsibility and then there are those with whom he works to carry out the task at hand. It is true in our homes, in business, or any organization that is formed. Thus Bible doctrine must be above all else!
                 God states Eph. 4:11 He gave "some" to be apostles, prophets, evangelists and pastor-teachers.
