(Ryan Lestrange) An Apostolic Anointing contains activation, mobilization & acceleration. When you align with the apostolic spirit you are aligning with a sending mandate. In order to be sent you must be activated. There is an identification process that takes places in an alignment with apostolic ministry. Through the years I have found that people in apostolic churches/ministries discover their gifts and their spiritual DNA. In a mature apostolic ministry there is teaching & training to define gifts and impart in order to activate them. When ministry gifts align with apostles in brings them into a realm of greater discovery and activation. An apostolic atmosphere is one that births destinies and uncovers assignments.
Acts 16:1-4– Paul came also to Derbe and to Lystra. And a disciple was there, named Timothy, the son of a Jewish woman who was a believer, but his father was a Greek, and he was well spoken of by the brethren who were in Lystra and Iconium. Paul wanted this man to go with him; and he took him and circumcised him because of the Jews who were in those parts, for they all knew that his father was a Greek. Now while they were passing through the cities, they were delivering the decrees which had been decided upon by the apostles and elders who were in Jerusalem, for them to observe.
Timothy was a young disciple with a massive call upon his life. That call was unlocked by an alignment with an Apostle who activated him and trained him. Over years of traveling and service Timothy became Paul’s spiritual son and ultimately caught his mantle and rose to another level. Apostolic ministry brings a divine mobilization. It awakens the corporate sense of destiny and hands out spiritual marching orders. The body is called the Ekklesia: a legislative Kingdom people governing by The Spirit, breaking the powers of hell and releasing the glory of God. There is a divine mobilization taking place right now in the earth! The Lord is establishing and activating a new generation of apostolic/prophetic generals to mobilize His people and release keys of authority and revelation. I see a great RELEASE of new ministries being birthed by the mandate of heaven. Revival HUBS, Kingdom Centers, Ekklesia bases are coming forth with various assignments and mandates. There is also a realm of acceleration that comes in an apostolic alignment. Things are sped up and brought forth.
