A lot of people have been trying to interpret this portion of the Bible where Jesus was writing on the ground, some said Jesus was actually writing the names of those people who brought the adulterous woman for judgement, but I believe so strongly that what Jesus was doing there was a “spiritual exercise”, he was taking authority over the ruling forces of darkness in the atmosphere or environment, he was opening portals for the Power of God to manifest right there, and it did. He came up with a WISDOM that no ordinary man can ever have, with just few words He saved the woman and sent away all the accusers—That was a spiritual warfare. Remember that Jesus said “the things I do, you will do also…”, I had found myself writing on the ground also (while in prayer) and every time I did, I can see Power manifest for victory.
Other signs of an Apostle are:
14) HE IS A TERRITORIAL COMMANDER. An apostle is a great warrior in spiritual battles who have won many battles and have prevailed over many kingdoms of darkness. He is such a man that no longer deal with lesser demons but higher ones (principalities and powers), yes, even Satan is aware of him and fears him (because Satan knows what he is capable of doing). When God sends an apostle to a land to win souls and plant churches, the apostle will first of all take dominion over all the ruling powers of darkness on that land before he starts his work fully. The apostle will enter into that land or nation with the fullness of God and Heaven such that all the dark kingdoms on the land will either leave or surrender immediately—This is how it becomes so easy for the apostle to win souls and work miracles among the people because he had already taken the whole territory for the Kingdom of God.
15) FOOD AND FINANCE MULTIPLICATION. I had mentioned earlier that God trains an apostle to be able to survive in times and places where it appears that there’s no means of survival, and not only would the apostle survive, he can as well help others to survive and eat for many days. There were prophets in the old testament days who made food materials multiply through the Power of God, and Jesus Christ did the same thing as well…It is an Apostolic anointing that makes this happen for real, but I guess some of us are so afraid to believe God for something like this. Believe me, in the midst of “no food”, two grain of rice shall feed thousands!
16) A GOOD MENTOR AND TRAINER. Apostles are very good in mentoring believers to grow in their spiritual gifts and callings, an apostle will train you from his life experiences and he will try as much as possible to impart the same LIFE he had received from the Lord into you. Also, an apostle can practically show you how things operate in the realm of the Spirit, for instance, if he wants to show you how to pray for the sick and get them healed, he would do the same before you and you will see the sick get healed instantly.
17) A MAN OF UNUSUAL WISDOM. God blesses His apostles with outstanding wisdom that enables them to deal with situations victoriously. Many of us don’t know how powerful and important wisdom is because we have not really seen what wisdom can do, Wisdom is greater than “prophecies”, with wisdom you can get many problems solved, lead people (including the most difficult people), win battles that could have taken years to win, interpret dreams, symbols and mysteries, in fact, just a single wisdom can save a whole continent from destruction.
ALL THESE SIGNS I HAD MENTIONED ARE JUST FRAGMENTS OF WHAT THE APOSTOLIC CALLING ACTUALLY ENTAILS…ALSO, YOU NEED TO NOTE THAT EVERY CHRISTIAN IS CALLED TO BE APOSTOLIC (THOUGH THAT DOESN’T MAKE YOU AN APOSTLE), THIS IS BECAUSE THE DESTINY OF THE CHURCH IS AN APOSTOLIC DESTINY, SO THESE SIGNS CAN MANIFEST IN ALL MINISTERS AND BELIEVERS!!
WE MUST ALL GO BACK TO THE APOSTOLIC WAYS AND STANDARDS—THIS IS THE FOUNDATION OF OUR FAITH!!! Amen.
