Ministry of the Prophet (Part 1)
Fivefold Ministry is the ongoing surrogate ministry of Christ Himself to the Church He is building--His Betrothed--which He transfered unto the Church as He was ascending on High (Eph. 4:7-16). All legitimate ministry emanates from Jesus Himself and is an extension of His ministry. Jesus functioned in all five of the Fivefold Ministry Offices as demonstrated in the four Gospel accounts. Fivefold Ministry consists of five functions, or offices of function: apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher (Eph. 4:11).
The office/function of the prophet along with that of apostle are foundational ministry offices of the Church Jesus is building which God Himself set into the Church for the duration of the Church Age (Eph. 2:20, 1 Cor. 12:28). The office of prophet is second in the order of importance in the governmental structure of the Church, with apostle being first (1 Cor. 12:28).
In this audio, Part 1 in a series, Dr. Steven Lambert, who himself has functioned in the office of the prophet for more than three decades, shares some insights on the prophetic function he has excavated from the Word of God and affirmed through real life experience of in functioning in the prophetic office.
