What I believe God is calling His true Church to be doing today:
Ian McCormack Speaking on the Fivefold Ministry 19 Apr 2015
Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do His work and build up the church, the body of Christ. This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-13 (NLT)
Are we all apostles? Are we all prophets? Are we all teachers? Do we all have the power to do miracles? Do we all have the gift of healing? Do we all have the ability to speak in unknown languages? Do we all have the ability to interpret unknown languages? Of course not! 1 Corinthians 12:29-30 (NLT)

I believe God is calling His true church to use His gifts to be evangelising and healing people. This web page is aimed at Christians, new or seasoned, young or old, wanting to do God’s will for them in their life. It was shown to me through spiritual dreams, visions and words from the Lord mainly during 2015. I believe this is the last chance God is giving to His Church to do this. I believe there is not much time left in which to do all He wants of us. Five Fold Ministry — Ian McCormack has done a talk on Five Fold Ministry if you haven’t heard of this before, this video is well worth watching. It also gets shown on Revelation TV every so often.
Our churches and groups should be run on the ‘fivefold’ principle, to include people with these gifts… Apostle - Prophet - Evangelist - Pastor - Teacher - with Jesus at the head. See Ephesians 4:11-13 above. ‘There is so much more’ to being a Christian than just going to church on a Sunday or even on a weekday as well. ‘There is so much more’ than singing songs and listening to what is said from the front of a church. ‘There is so much more’ than thinking you are a Christian, and thinking you have Holy Spirit in our life. We need to have a personal relationship with Jesus, talking with Him about everything going on in your life. We need to know we have Holy Spirit active within us ready to do His will at any time. Holy Spirit should be our constant friend with us all the time. If you want this, ask Jesus for it. Holy Spirit wants to activate us in doing what Jesus has told us in the Bible to do.
The Great Commission “Then the eleven disciples left for Galilee, going to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him — but some of them doubted! Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations (or all peoples), baptising them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:16-20 (NLT)
Evangelising and Healing Our ‘fivefold’ churches should form groups to evangelise in a Holy Spirit led way, not using our own ideas. Proper prayer support needs to be set up. I don't mean a monthly prayer meeting. I mean multiple times a week by individuals in a prayer support group, and constantly when a group is in action. We should evangelise out and about to wherever the Holy Spirit guides us. That might be in a public park, a shopping centre car park, a town centre where people congregate, or it might be in a side street where a person is in need of help. Wherever the Holy Spirit leads us to go. We should be going out healing and delivering people in the name of Jesus and bringing God’s love to people in a world with such need. We should then be bringing these people to repentance and a personal relationship with Jesus if they don’t already know Him. There’s nothing like the power and love of God falling on someone to wake them up and make them open to hear more about Jesus. These new people should then be fed through to the other parts of a fivefold ministry group, not just leaving them stranded on their own. Each person has to be in their respective roles in a Five Fold Ministry group, all fitting together to be a combined force under the control of the Holy Spirit. Only those who do the will of God will enter into the kingdom of God. We must not do our ‘own thing’, we must do what the Holy Spirit tells us to do.
And whatever their sickness or disease, or if they were demon possessed or epileptic or paralysed — He healed them all. Matthew 4:24b (NLT)
Go and announce to them that the Kingdom of Heaven is near. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cure those with leprosy, and cast out demons. Give as freely as you have received! Matthew 10:7-8 (NLT)
An example of a Five Fold Ministry group in action. Meet in groups to pray, talk and have fellowship regularly. When going out, meet to pray and seek guidance on where to go if not already known. Make sure your prayer partners are praying. Go to the site you have been led to. Make sure you are ‘wearing’ the Holy Spirit. Go to places and people the Holy Spirit leads you to. o Use ‘words of knowledge’ to bring up conversation if appropriate. o If about health problems discuss with client and offer prayer and Jesus' healing. o Lay hands on the affected area if led and appropriate. If difficult area or the whole body, lay hands on their forehead, and/or get the client to touch the area. o Speak to the problem and command healing in the name of Jesus. If you sense evil spirits in the person, first of all bind and cast out any demonic activity in them in the name and blood of Jesus and send the evil spirits to the pit of hell never to return. Here are some examples of possible evil spirits: spirit of affliction, spirit of a generational curse, spirit of death, spirit of cancer, spirit of depression, etc… very long list… Ask client about their need. Do they feel a change? Ask for a percentage score of improvement if appropriate. If still evident, heal in the name of Jesus again, thanking Jesus for what He has done already. etc. Have faith and expect instant healing, but in some cases be aware this may take longer. Thank Jesus for what He has done. Lead client to repentance and Jesus. “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.” Matthew 3:2 “No, and I tell you again that unless you repent, you will perish, too.” Luke 13:5 “So the disciples went out, telling everyone they met to repent of their sins and turn to God.” Mark 6:12 “Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away.” Acts 3:19 “But if you warn them to repent and they don’t repent, they will die in their sins, but you will have saved yourself.” Ezekiel 33:9 Give the client a tract, Bible etc or as led. Move on to next client you are guided to. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit's wishes all the time. Move to another area or stop when prompted to. Listen to the Holy Spirit's leading of others in the group as well. All born again believers in Jesus and who have a personal relationship with Him and have been baptised and filled with the Holy Spirit can heal people in the name of Jesus.

Useful Bible verses to use
Some of God’s gifts available to us through the Holy Spirit
“Get up and prepare for action. Go out and tell them everything I tell you to say. Do not be afraid of them, or I will make you look foolish in front of them. For see, today I have made you strong like a fortified city that cannot be captured, like an iron pillar or a bronze wall. You will stand against the whole land — the kings, officials, priests, and people of Judah. They will fight you, but they will fail. For I am with you, and I will take care of you. I, the Lord, have spoken!” Jeremiah 1:17-19 (NLT)
Fear not I am with you. Isaiah 41:10 (NLT)

When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarrelling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God. But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! Galatians 5:19-23 (NLT)
Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God — truly righteous and holy. Ephesians 4:23-24 (NLT)
Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you. Luke 10:19 (NLT)
Medication When healing people in the name of Jesus, never tell them to stop taking any medication they may be already on. Instead, tell them to see their doctor and discuss their medical situation with him/her. Their doctor may well then take them off any medication for the healed condition.
It is advisable to audio record all 'client' conversations for proof of what was said. Make sure you keep recorders fully charged before going out. When you get back home, store the recording safely on your computer and make a diary of events. Don’t forget to make your audio recorder ready and recharge battery for next outing. This Sony ICD-TX650 is a good audio recorder to get.
And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. Anyone who believes and is baptised will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages. They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.” ‭‭Mark 16:15-18 (NLT)
