Kareem Flowers was ordained as an apostle in July, 2015. From Silent Whispers we see into his heart more clearly. "I sit here as a man that loves the Lord. In my heart stirs a passion for Christ that cannot be doused. He is my strength and source. My reason for living. He has snatched me from the fires of death and depression and my life is now His. He took me from lust, perversion, and suicide just by his love. Now, my purpose in life, is to serve him. So I sit here, and within me stirs the Lord Jesus Christ. He is compacted with mysteries that await to be revealed in this present time. He has blessed me with an eye to see Him, for who He is. I can see Jesus, I am His apostle."
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
