Foretelling Future Events
Acts 21:10-11 is an excellent example of Prophecy as fore-telling events, the passages reads: “After we had been there a number of days, a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. Coming over to us, he took Paul’s belt, tied his own hands and feet with it and said, “The Holy spirit says, ‘In this way the Jews of Jerusalem will bind the owner of this belt and will hand him over to the Gentiles.’” If you feel led by God to serve others in this manner, please select the appropriate checkbox.
Teaching Pastors prefer to study and expound the Word of God for others within the body. 2 Timothy 4:2 and 3 instruct Timothy, a Teaching Pastor, “Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine….” 1 Corinthians 4:6b instructs Pastoral Teachers, “Do not go beyond what is written”. James 3:1 states as a warning to those who would presume to be a teacher within the Church: “Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly”.
