Jacob wrestled with an angel for many hours throughout the night, and when the day was almost breaking, the Angel had to pull out the bone of his thigh so as to release himself from Jacob. Now, I began to think, if the angel could overpower Jacob, why couldn’t he had done away with him since the beginning of the fight?—This was because the angel was waiting for Jacob to reach his strength limit, God wanted to see how desperate Jacob was for divine transformation and blessing…but Jacob was wise enough to reach this resolution in his heart, which is “Oh Angel, it is either you bless me or you take me with you” and the angel said something which is the point I am trying to make, the angel said “…you now have power with God and with men and have prevailed, just as a prince”. I want you to know that apostles are like “principalities” and a principality is a personality with a spiritual authority that both heaven and earth obeys or responds to. It’s like you have become a Voice that shakes both the heavens and the earth.
Other signs of an Apostle include:
10) HE’S SO SENSITIVE TO ERRORS AND DISORDERS. To be Apostolic is to know when certain things are not being done the way the Lord would want them done in His Church, there’s a way these errors coming from the pulpits and ministers will react against your spirit every time you encounter them, an apostle is not someone who will see pollution, corruption and unrighteousness prevailing in a church and would be at peace with them. Also, his spirit will not just react against these errors and disorders but will also come up with corrections and instructions that is able to align the whole church with the will of God and the real presence of God. The spirit of an Apostle is always crying with this prayer “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”.
11) HE IS A TEACHER. The mission or mandate of an Apostle has a lot to do with discipleship, which involves establishing the Kingdom of God in the hearts of men and building up the people of God until they attain spiritual maturity—And the apostle uses the weapon of Teaching to achieve this. The Apostle has a unique ability that enables him to convert all the divine revelations he has into “teachings” in such a way that every one will be able to understand (you need to know that it is one thing to have revelations and knowledge, and it is another thing to perfectly bring it down to people’s understanding and learning). Teaching is a constructive apostolic tool for edification, impartation, transformation and establishment.
12) FACE TO FACE WITH DEMONS. I know there are some believers today who will tell you that there’s no need for spiritual warfare because Satan and his hosts had already been defeated, but a true apostle will not tell you this. An apostle is such that fights demons as though he is seeing them face to face, he would know when he has hurt them and also know if he is prevailing over them or not. I told someone that if you see me during some of my personal spiritual warfare prayer sessions, you might think I have actually gone mad, and this is because I fight demons face to face! Because an apostle is actively working directly against all that the kingdom of darkness are doing in the world, he is constantly in battle against demons and Satanic forces.
13) A PRAYER GENERAL. Have you ever prayed to a point where the Holy Spirit tells you to stop praying because someone was going to die?! An apostle is someone who prays and mighty things begin to happen in the realm of the Spirit immediately he starts praying, he is such who can change events, situations and seasons through prayer. His prayers move the whole of heaven to action, he is such that doesn’t gets tired in the place of prayer, in fact, the longer he prays, the stronger he becomes. To be continued.
THERE WAS AN APOSTLE WE HAD HERE IN NIGERIA SOME YEARS AGO WHO KNELT DOWN PRAYING ON A MOUNTAIN FOR SO LONG TO THE POINT THAT HIS TWO KNEES SANK DEEP INTO THE MOUNTAIN ROCK AND WE STILL HAVE THOSE TWO BIG HOLES ON THE MOUNTAIN GROUND TILL TODAY…YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW MANY DAYS HE MUST HAVE BEEN KNEELING DOWN PRAYING!!
APOSTLES ARE MEN WHO BREAK RECORDS AND MAKE HISTORY…THEY LEAVE A MARK IN HISTORY THAT CANNOT BE FORGOTTEN…I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT THOSE WHO FAKE MIRACLES, I AM TALKING ABOUT THOSE WHO DID REAL MIRACLES THROUGH GOD SUCH THAT SCIENTISTS CAN’T QUESTION NOR DENY!!! Are you an apostle?, If yes, how far and high have you gone with God?!!!! Amen.
