"Just What IS an APOSTLE?"


Why This Booklet?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!

Does the voice of God speak through chaos?  Is Christ going to return to a harem of hundreds of bickering churches?  Or is there still just one pure bride – a single spiritual Temple – to whom Christ will return and marry? 

This subject was once very clear to us: “God doesn’t use a Babylon of confused, disagreeing religious organizations, divided into hundreds of different concepts of theological doctrine, as His instruments” (Mystery of the Ages page 350). 

So, how should we conduct ourselves within the present situation?

The subject of this booklet – “What is an Apostle?” – may not at first sight seem linked to the above.  But it is. It provides the missing link in understanding the very Government of God – government that must flow from God Himself down to His people for eternity.  This booklet therefore presents the subject in that light, as a vital ingredient for unity and singleness of purpose, given to us by God, as a guide to His true people.
