I will send forth upon you what My Father has promised; but remain in the city [Jerusalem] until you are clothed with power from on high. (Luke 24:49 AMP)
The Disciples were promised to be given the Spirit of Christ. This was not only given to the first century Church but to the Church in the last days as well. The Holy Spirit empowers every true Disciples who remains in Jerusalem – the type of His Church. The gifts of the Holy Spirit are distributed generously to the Believers according to the measure of their faith. Some were given the gift of administration and/or leadership as with the Elders of the Church; encouragement and services as with the Abiezers; prophesying and/or or teaching as with the Ministers; singing as with the Choir; helping and Speaking for Christ; and, others are given the ability to support the work of the Church. Their works are coordinated with each other and complements one another – complementing for the purpose of building up the Church. Do your share in the Church faithfully? This is God‘s will for you and me.
