What All Apostles Do

By: Apostle Marcus Triplett

• They receive revelation. Apostles hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches. Some of this revelation comes directly to them, some of it is received together with prophets, and other times through proper relationships with prophets.
• They cast vision. Their vision is based on the revelation they receive.
• They birth. Apostles are self-starters who begin new things.
• They impart. God uses apostles to activate His blessings in others (Rom. 1:11).
• They build. Apostles strategize and find ways to carry a project along its intended course, including the funding that is required.
• They govern. Apostles are skilled in setting things in order. Along with prophets, they lay the biblical foundation of the kingdom (Eph. 2;20).
• They teach. Early believers “continued steadfastly in the apostles’ teaching” (Acts 2:42).
• They send. Apostles send out those who are equipped to fulfill their role in extending the kingdom of God
• They finish. Apostles are able to bring a project or a season of God to its desired conclusion. They are uneasy until the project is done. They seldom burn out.
• They war. Apostles are the generals in the army of God.
• They align generations. Apostles have a long-range perspective on the purposes of God and they raise up second tier leadership for the future.
• They equip. Ephesians 4:12 says that apostles equip the saints for the work of the ministry.
