We also established the fact that the Church Age began with all the Fivefold ministry offices in operation, and that they were all intended by God to be functioning throughout the duration of the Church Age. Unfortunately, however, according to history, that is not at all what transpired.

The account of what did happen is of vital importance in order to understand clearly why a move of God to restore the ministry of the Prophet (as well as the Apostle) into its rightful place of function within the Church became necessary. Without the backdrop of Church history, it is difficult to fully understand the significance of the “times of refreshing” and “periods of restoration” (Ac. 3:19) which have transpired over the last four-hundred-ninety-five years in order to bring restoration of what was lost in the Church less than three hundred years after its inception. The intent of this part of the series is to put this matter of the demise and restoration of the Fivefold Ministry Gifts into its proper perspective within the framework of Church history.
