LOVE TABERNACLE MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL
BOOK: The Ministry Gifts
Chapter 2: The Five-Fold Ministry Gifts
Means "one who brings the glad tidings (evangel)". Always translated in new testament as "evangelist(s)".
TYPE OF WORK:
- Preaches (which means to declare) salvation unto the lost,
in the simplest form. An evanglist usually will come up with a
salvation message out of any verse in the bible.
- Can preach to the saved, usually to exhort (encourage), most
likely about doing evangelistic type activites. The evangelist
will end up his exhortation with a salvation call.
- Usually is a traveling ministry (moves around alot).
COMBINATION OF GIFTINGS:
Most likely gifts active in this office:
Motivational: mercy, exhortation, give.
Five Fold: Evangelist, and maybe others.
Charismatic: miracles, gifts of healings
Note: You do not have to be an evangelist to do "evangelistic" activities, that is, to "go ye" and witness and get someone saved.
Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached
Christ unto them. And the people with one accord gave heed unto those
things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he
did. For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that
were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were
lame, were healed. And there was great joy in that city.
And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom
speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? Then
Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached
unto him Jesus.
And the next day we that were of Paul's company departed, and
came unto Caesarea: and we entered into the house of Philip the
evangelist, which was one of the seven; and abode with him.
2 Tim 4:5
HAVE NEED OF THE OTHER FIVE FOLD:
But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
- Evangelists are not pastors (to look after the flock) or
teachers (to stablize). Without at least these two, all of his
new fruit will fall away with no one to go get them.
- In Acts 8, Philip did not impart the Holy Spirit to the
people, but the apostles did. Also, it is questionable whether he
had discernment of spirits, because of the case with Simeon (Acts 8:21).
