The Acts of Apostleship Continues Until the Work is Done

    Ye are are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men; forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshly tables of the heart. 2 Corinthians  3: 2, 3, K.J.V.

Great Controversy by Ellen G. White, (1911 ed.), pp.  54-56:

     “In the sixth century the papacy became firmly established. Its seat of power was fixed in the imperial city, and the bishop of Rome was declared to be the head over the entire church. Paganism had given place to the papacy [the great apostasy of the church in the union of church and state]. The dragon [pagan Rome] had given to the beast ‘his power, and his seat, and great authority.’ Rev. 13: 2.  And now began the 1260 years of papal oppression foretold in the prophecies of Daniel and the Revelation Dan. 7: 25; Rev. 13: 5-7. CHRISTIANS were forced to choose either to yield their integrity and accept the papal ceremonies and worship, or to wear away their lives in dungeons or suffer death by the rack, the fagot, or the headsman’s axe.

Rejoice: the Spiritual Apostolic Succession Remains Unbroken!

    Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus. Hebrews 3: 1, K.J.V.

From the most comprehensive and inclusive sense possible, based on the preponderance of both Scripture and history evidence, this is how and who “the church that appears to fall but will not.” Why? It’s Cornerstone and Foundation has been from birth, none other than Jesus Christ, the Creator-incarnate, the Master Apostle and High Priest of its faith. His chosen follower-disciples-apostles through centuries of gross moral and doctrinal darkness, superstition, and bitter persecution, have steadily and progressively built this church-temple, empowered by the Holy Spirit and ministered to and defended from all that Satan’s “gates of hell” have schemed and attacked it by.

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit: Have we received it?

 

Apollos and the Filling of the Spirit. – First, a quick background of Apollos:

    Greek Apollos, a contraction of Appolonious [or Apollodurus]. A Jewish convert to the message of John the Baptist, described as being diligent, fervent, and “an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures” (Acts 18: 24, 25), born in the Egyptian city of Alexandria. After his conversion he became an itinerant evangelist (chs 18: 24, 27: 19:1).

 While preaching at Ephesus he met Aquila and Priscilla, Christian Jews who instructed him in the tenets of Christianity (ch 18: 26, 28). After this Apollos went to the Roman province of Achaia, taking with him a letter of recommendation from the church at Ephesus (v 27). While in Achaia he preached with success in the city of Corinth (chs 18: 28; 19:1), and because of this abilities became popular with a certain faction that began to exalt him, as opposed to other groups which exalted Paul, Peter, or Christ (1 Cor. 1: 12).
