After our Lords Resurrection (Jesus Christ our Messiah) He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. And He gave some, Apostles; and some, Prophets; and some, Evangelist; and some, Pastors and Teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the Unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of GOD, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness whereby they lie in wait to deceive; Ephesians 4:11-16; Eph. 4:15 of the Amplified Bible says it this way ... Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth (in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly). Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things unto HIM Who is the Head, (even) Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed ONE). For because of Him the Whole Body (the church, in all its various parts), closely joined and firmly nit together by all the joints and ligaments with which it is supplied, when each part (with Power adapted to its need) is working properly (in all its functions), grows to full maturity, building itself up in Love.
In Mark 16:20 we read in the Amplified Bible: And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord kept working with them and confirming the message by the attesting signs and miracles that closely accompanied it. Matthew 28:19-20 says it like this...Go then and make (mentor them) disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the very close and consummation of the age. Amen and Amen
