The Apostles Are Coming! The Apostles Are Coming! (Part 4)

Click on following links for: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

In 2007, I had a weird dream in which I saw a bunch of five bananas. Four of the bananas in the bunch were rotten and one was perfect. End of dream.

I told Honey about the dream, but even with her help, I had no clue what the dream was about.

As with all of my dreams, I wrote it down in a notebook so that I could review it sometime in the future.

Then, I went into the kitchen to make myself breakfast. I poured GrapeNuts into a bowl and grabbed what looked like a perfect banana. As I peeled it, I was surprised to learn the fruit was rotten. Not one portion of it was eatable. I tossed it into the trash can.

Next, I grabbed another banana and began peeling it. Surprise! Surprise! It, too, was rotten. Then, I grabbed a third and a fourth one. Both were also rotten. The trash can now contained four rotten bananas.

Finally, there was only one banana left in the bowl. I picked it up, checking it over. Just like the others, there were no marks on the peel; it looked perfect from the outside.

What do I have to lose? I thought.

So, I peeled it. And in fact, it was perfect in every possible way, not one bruise on it.

As I stood there looking at the banana, the Holy Spirit spoke to me heart: “The first four callings have been restored to the Church and are mostly rotten. The fifth calling is now ready. It will be perfect.”

The Holy Spirit was referring to the five-fold callings in Ephesians 4:11 –

And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers.

But even more, I felt the Holy Spirit was especially referring to the end-time apostles when he mentioned the fifth calling’s perfection.

The rottenness of the first four callings – teachers, pastors, evangelists, and prophets – is due mainly to the traditional church system rather than to the personal character traits of the people in these callings.  The traditional church system has shoved these four callings into a box and sculpted each of them by its traditions and hierarchy.

The end-time apostles are not coming to fit into the traditional church system’s mold, but instead, they’re coming with sticks of dynamite to blow it apart.

The apostles are coming!

  1. I first wrote about this dream in May, 2008. As with many revelations, it improved over time.

  2. Wow. It will be interesting to see where this goes. I’m afraid I think some of the rottenness comes out of sinful nature or personal character. But I agree the pressure of conforming or fitting is a huge occasion for sin.

  3. Soveig,

    Obviously, you’re right. But at the same time, if the callings were not separated into clergy and lay people groups, many of the sins would be corrected.

  4. This is true revealation.
    I’ve seen this as well.

    However, I maintain with my first insight, I used to believe it was about the walls of the church, but it really is so much bigger than that. so much bigger than the church.

    I am so convinced of this I will stake my reputation on it. Mankind is the only goal in this battle. But like you said, sometimes we’re wrong.

  5. Cindy,

    Yes, mankind is the goal because Jesus reconciled man to God. And of course, every ministry is really a ministry of reconciliation of some sort or another.

    But the main emphasis is on the church and training believers to do the ministry.
