What the Church Officer Must Do

Acts 6:1~2 Now in these days when the disciples were increasing in number, a complaint by the Hellenists arose against the Hebrews because their widows were being neglected in the daily distribution. And the twelve summoned the full number of the disciples and said, “It is not right that we should give up preaching the word of God to serve tables.”

God raised church officers whenever the Word or prayer ceased in the nation of Israel. Although the situation seemed like absolute impossibility, God led these people to what He desired. In the midst of that, God worked upon the people of the 0.1 percent who had seen the covenant of absolute possibility. The members of the Early Church raised church officers so that the apostles could focus entirely on the Word and prayer. What did the church officers of the Early Church do?

1. The Healing That Comes from Above(Acts 1:14)
Those who held onto the covenant of changing what was absolute impossibility into absolute possibility gathered at Mark’s upper room and devoted themselves to only prayer. They changed their imprints through “only Christ.” They rooted themselves in “only God’s Kingdom” and changed all their incorrect roots. They completely changed their nature which was bound for inevitable destruction through “only the Holy Spirit.” This is the healing that comes from above that mends or restores everything.

2. The Power That Comes from Above(Acts 2:1~47)
Church officers need the power that comes from above. It is impossible for church officers to do world evangelization with their individual. They must take their power from above and relay it to the multiethnic people who reside in their neighborhoods(Acts 2:9~11). Church officers must relay the future(Acts 2:17~18) and change the imprints, roots, and nature of multiethnic with the Gospel(Acts 2:41~42). The Early Church even experienced the answer of a great many of the priests, who had blocked the Gospel, kneeling before Christ(Acts 6:7). They also went to Samaria, a place where nobody would dare to go, and raised works(Acts 8:4~8 and 26~40). This is the strength that church officers must possess.

3. The Field That Comes from Above(Acts 11:19)
Church officers must go to the field that comes from above. Through the tribulations that arose due to Stephen’s death, the scattered church officers raised the Antioch Church. This was their guide post. They did intend or attempt to do work, rather they just gathered in one place after being persecuted. However, evangelism and missions began and disciples arose there. The Antioch Church which should have received help from the Jerusalem Church, instead, enjoyed the blessing of helping the Jerusalem Church. Likewise, God bestows a financial system(the economy of light) that comes from above to the church that does the Gospel movement.
[Prayer of the Evangelist] Dear God, may church officers arise in all churches. Please give them the healing, power, fields, and finances that come from above to save the church and to raise Remnants.
