There is much more to the resurrection
A greater depth in Christ’s ascension…
The King’s gifts at His glorification !.
More than just forgiveness
And a cleansing of the conscience…
An empowering to His likeness !.
At legalism’s funeral
Gifts were distributed supernatural…
Marries the powerful and the Pastoral !.
Five fold ministry; a gift to the church
To grow and heal the broken and hurt…
Equipping saints, supernatural life dispersed !.
But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore He says:
“When He ascended on high,
He led captivity captive,
And gave gifts to men.”
And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
– for the equipping of the saints
– for the work of ministry,
– for the edifying of the body of Christ,
till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,
but, speaking the truth in love,
may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— (Ephesians 4:7, 8, 11-15 NKJV)
