TOPIC : UNDERSTANDING THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY: 3. THE TEACHER

Before anyone can claim to be a teacher of the Word, they ought to have been taught by God.

God seeks to chastise(discipline) your spirit before you can teach.

This is because there are weightier judgments that pursue the office of these offices (James 3:1-2).

A teacher who is not chastened or trained by God may function in the gift of teaching yet be wanting in the ability to function under the unction of the Spirit.

Teaching under unction means that you do not teach only out of books you have read or what you studied in Bible school( which things are good in themselves) but from the constant instruction of God.

When a teacher teaches from the instruction of God, his message will always be tuned to divine purpose and the mind of God in that particular time.

There’s a consecration that comes with that; it breaks every obstacle that denies the Christian access to certain realms in God and takes you to the true experience of the liberties of access; these liberties come with revelation and that revelation always comes with the power to redeem. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Ephesians 4:11-13, James 3:1

GOLDEN NUGGET: A teacher who is not chastened or trained by God may function in the gift of teaching yet be wanting in the ability to function under the unction of the Spirit.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this knowledge. I yield my spirit to you, deal with me, in me and through me. My spirit breaks before you and even as I give myself to your chastening, I live, walk and minister under your constant instruction. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
