The alignment of God's apostle and prophet is essential to the Body of Christ and any Church governance. The Church nor its congregants can be properly built up to do the work of Christ if there is not an Apostle and Prophet spearheading the House of God. For when the House of God have in place an Apostle and Prophet, who operates as one, leading God's apostolic team, then Jeremiah chapter 1, verse 10 can be properly fulfilled; and the people of God can fully operate as outlined according to the Scripture at 1 Corinthians chapter 12, verses 27 and 28.
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues.
