In recent years there has been the re-establishment of the ministry of apostles in the church of Jesus Christ worldwide. Here in Australia , Revival Ministries Australia [RMA], was formed in January 1998 and registered by April 1998 with an approved constitution as a not-for-profit Christian ministry and Christian church. RMA has been an integral part of that re-establishment of apostles in the church. Since June/July 1999, RMA has conducted short-term training schools twice yearly with students attending from two to six weeks of full time training. During the years many teaching manuals have been written and used in the training schools. These teaching manuals have also been used in overseas nations. More currently, along with two books and some teaching tracts, the manuals form the basis for discipleship schools, wherein many ministers and other committed disciples are studying the word together.
In 2006 we conducted our first longer term training school for three months. This school was prepared and presented for the training and equipping of overseas brethren who were already functioning in ministry. A number of Australian brethren also completed the training.
We seek to follow Paul's practice in Acts 19 and be obedient to the Great Commission that our Lord Jesus gave us. Paul the apostle spent two years in a teaching centre in Ephesus. He taught the word of God daily.
As a result the Gospel spread throughout Asia Minor; "So the word of the Lord was growing mightily and prevailed"and "all who lived in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus." (Acts 19:20&10)
In giving us the Great Commission in Matthew, Jesus commanded us "Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you."(Matt.28:19-20) We give ourselves to this teaching ministry.
The Lord gave us a commission in late 1997 to establish Revival Ministries Australia , to encourage revival in Australia and in overseas countries. To fulfil the commission, we need to train and equip the saints for ministry, raising workers for the harvest (Matt.9:37-38, Lu.10:2) and fathering sons in order to bring the church to maturity. SHILOH International School of Ministry has been established for this purpose. Initially we understood the school to be that school which was based at SHILOH centre Toowoomba, but we now understand that the school of ministry is multi-campused. That means that there has been a multiplication of SHILOH schools in some other nations and we see this multiplication continuing in many more nations.
"For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings" Heb.2:10. It is time for the servants of God to 'become sons' and begin to walk in the inheritance that God has reserved for us.
Our vision is to see many sons walking in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ so that He can be manifest in all the earth.
a) to equip the saints, b) to do the work of ministry, c) to bring edification to the body of Christ" (Eph. 4:12).
This means bringing each person to the full expression of ministry within the church through teaching and training. The release of well-trained ministers will cause the church to grow up into all that Christ intends as revealed in the New Testament; to raise many sons in ministry, bringing all the saints into the experience of sonship.
To raise up workers for the harvest, to bring about the effectual evangelisation of our generation, in preparation for the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, to rule and reign in the earth. Vital to the fulfilment of this purpose is the raising and releasing of apostles in every nation, to father the church and lead the church back to the word of God as it is written.
To build the house of God [church] in every place according to the 'master plan' (1 Cor.3:10) in fulfilment of the vision of Zechariah 4, "not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord of Hosts."
The church must be built according to the Word of God; Jesus is building His church (Matt.16:18) and for this purpose He gave "some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, some to be pastors and teachers." Eph.4:11.
Through teaching, making known "the revelation of the mystery", "preaching the unsearchable riches of Christ"; teaching and training in the Word of God; experience in ministry of the gifts of the Holy Spirit; group involvement in prayer and worship; participation in ministry; training in teaching and preaching the Word of God.
Trainees will be involved in praise and worship daily and training in prayer. There will be daily breaking of bread, with students learning to minister the table. Students will be involved in practical ministry opportunities at weekends.
We believe the LORD is preparing His church to be a glorious "bride-church" and is raising up workers [sons] in His church to go into the harvest. This training will provide a means for many saints to be equipped and released into fruitful ministry. We are actively involved in the apostolic reformation of the church of Jesus Christ and teach apostolic doctrine and revelation. This means the restoration of the church according to the Scriptures.
First of all we apologise for the lateness of this newsletter and for the lack of a newsletter in June. We have been fully absorbed in preparing for the international training school and then hosting ten international apostolic leaders from eight nations for four weeks intensive training here in Toowoomba
The following are diary entries that Nicholas Jackson put on Revival Ministries Australia Facebook page. If you are able to check the facebook page, there are many photos accompanying each of the entries. He wrote:
First Week: We are in the midst of the first week of the Shiloh International Apostolic School! Apostles and brethren from Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Philippines, Myanmar, Colombia, Canada and Fiji are here. There have been awesome sessions of teaching on: "An Apostolic People", "The Apostolic Pattern", "The Apostolic Purpose", "Apostles the wise master builders", Building according to the Pattern", "The Church has foundations", "The Doctrine of Christ", "The Name of Jesus" and "The Son of God". It is rich. Packed with revelation! The International Ecclesia convening and assembling to plot the takeover of nations for Jesus!
End of first week: First week of International Apostolic School has been profound in the purposes of God. Yesterday and today we had sessions on "The Wheat and the Tares", "Making Disciples", "The Apostolic Call" and "Adoption as sons".
This morning the Holy Spirit visited us deeply, imparting a spiritual gift to us so that we might be established (Romans 1:11). Awesome manifestation of the Spirit to confirm the deep work of transformation Jesus is doing in our lives.
The apostolic call is to become sons who are planted in the world, growing up to maturity, in order for the kingdom of God to manifest, by bringing nations to obedience of the faith for the name of Jesus!
Sunday Fellowship at Shiloh. A mix of International brethren and apostles ministered. Colombian worship. Nigeria and Myanmar giving testimony and encouragement. Philippines bringing us to the Table of the Lord. Uganda preaching the Word.
In the midst of it all Josiah Micah Jackson, the newborn son of Nick and Rhoda, was dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ powerfully.
Sons are rising in the nations! Sons who rule with Jesus and walk with the Father doing His works and inheriting nations.
Second week: of Shiloh International Apostolic School. It is amazing how quickly two weeks in the Lord Jesus goes.
Sons are rising in the nations who will deliver creation from its bondage to corruption and bring their nations into the glorious liberty of the children of God (Romans 8:19-21).
What is your vision? Are you just wanting to go to heaven or are you looking unto the hope of glory? The knowledge of the glory of Yahweh will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14)! How will this happen? Through being obedient to make disciples (not church members/attenders), train ministers and raise sons who will manifest the glory of Messiah throughout the earth.
The nations, the kingdom and the earth are the inheritance of the sons of God! Psalm 2:7-8, Matthew 13:43, Matthew 5:5.
Week Three International School continues. Apostle Dorcas from Kenya shared a very powerful word from Joel 2 on the army of the Lord. Brother Julius from Kenya shared a devotional about learning how to suffer for being righteous (righteous means that you are positioned in God). Apostle George Muteti from Kenya led us in prayer and to the Lord's Table.
All the International brethren and some locals gave feedback regarding the first 2 weeks of the school. Everyone is in agreement that this is an historic school in the purposes of God globally. We are being equipped to take nations apostolically (Romans 1:5).
At missions prayer meeting in beginning of 3rd week of school. 25 nations were prayed for by name: Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, Chad, Japan, Peru, Egypt, Jordan, Nepal, Iraq, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Lithuania, China, South Korea, North Korea, Italy, Panama, Norway, Iceland, Laos, Somalia, Tibet, Ireland & Thailand. "My House shall be called a house of Prayer for all nations" Isaiah 56:7.
3rd week of Shiloh International Training School.
The format has been much more informal and interactive "reasoning daily in the school of Tyrranus" (Acts 19:9-10).
Topics of note have been: "Returning to the first love, doing the first works", "Ministry gift of Apostle", "Ministry of New Testament Prophet", "Baptism", "Biblical Meditation", "Sonship", and a Bible Research class on "Transformation" and "Renewing".
On Thursday, God moved in a beautiful way as we prayed for healing and reconciliation between aboriginal and white Australians in Christ.
Saturday in the Shiloh Apostolic Family.
Breakfast with Stephen Downey from Pocket Testament League. He shared powerful testimony of his life in Christ and released grace to us to share God's Word with the lost.
Saturday night at Cabarlah. Joy filled fellowship around dinner and worship.
God's presence is so precious!
Sunday morning at Shiloh. Apostle Paul Galligan was honoured by the Kenyan brethren according to Zechariah 4:10. "Who has despised the day of small things?" The fruit of the ministry is becoming very evident.
Pastor Col Krueger shared deeply about the glory being fully revealed in us-Jesus residing in our genes! (Romans 8:18, John 14:20)
Apostle George Muteti brought an excellent word regarding what we must be aware of as disciples. (Hebrews 4:12, 2Corinthians 10:5).Rich fellowship!
Training continued this last week. International brethren left Sunday.
The Word has been strong meat. We have been reasoning together-a real school of Tyrranus (Acts 19:9-10). Are you a serious disciple? Are you 100% committed to Jesus, the gospel and the great commission? Nations are waiting to be taken as an inheritance for King Jesus (Psalm 2:6-8). It is time to bring them to the obedience of faith (Romans 1:5).
From house to house and publicly the ministry and training continues (Acts 20:20).
"Now on the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood up and cried out, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. He who believes in Me as the Scriptures have said, out of his innermost being will flow rivers of living water" (John 7:37-38). It is time to release the River!
Commissioning Day at Shiloh International Apostolic Training School. A strong commissioning word to the apostles with some celebration of the time together. Romans 1:5 - "Through Christ we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name"
Commissioning apostles to go to the nations! Brother Wilson Kitondekigya from Uganda was also ordained into the ministry of apostle of Jesus Christ. What an awesome day in Jesus Christ. An historic time in God's eternal purpose being fulfilled. Ephesians 2:20-21 - the Holy Temple is growing and being fitted together worldwide as apostles are once again being laid as foundations for God's house!
A big thank you to all who supported the school financially. We were able to sponsor nine of the international delegates. We received wonderful support and help from the local Shiloh Community. Thank you also to everyone who made an effort to attend at least some of the school. Paul and Janet.
