At this stage, the battle in the spirit realm is not over the restoration of apostles, but today the battle is over apostolic authority. Thus, John Alley begins a message about the true nature and role of the prophet and the restoration of the five fold ministry in all its fullness. John describes the current low ebb of the ministry of the prophet in Australia, with five fold ministers acting independently of each other instead of working together in unity. He then goes on to bring many Scripture verses that describe the role of the New Testament prophet and the way in which the Church is meant to be built, on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets with Christ Jesus as the chief cornerstone. The New Testament prophet, says John, is meant to be humble, with his primary responsibility being intercession. This exciting and informative message is rich in content and will bring the listener into a deeper understanding of the office of the prophet, and the way in which the five fold ministry is meant to function as one.
