Super Quick Bible Study: Ephesians 4:12-14 Partly Ignored!

Ephesians 4:11-14 (AMP) – And [His gifts to the church were varied and] He Himself appointed some as apostles [special messengers, representatives], some as prophets [who speak a new message from God to the people], some as evangelists [who spread the good news of salvation], and some as pastors and teachers [to shepherd and guide and instruct],

[and He did this] to fully equip and perfect [mature] the saints [God’s people] for works of service, to build up the body of Christ [the church];

until we all reach oneness in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, [growing spiritually] to become a mature believer, reaching to the measure of the fullness of Christ [manifesting His spiritual completeness and exercising our spiritual gifts in unity].

So that we are no longer children [spiritually immature], tossed back and forth [like ships on a stormy sea] and carried about by every wind of [shifting] doctrine [instruction], by the cunning and trickery of [unscrupulous] men, by the deceitful scheming of people ready to do anything [for personal profit].

All the parts in red are ignored in the vast majority of Christendom. This is the main reason the church system is man-made and losing power over the world daily. Praises to Father Yah; He has pulled and continues to pull those who seek and surrender to Him in earnest.
