Qualifications to be One of 12 Apostles

Act 1:22 Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection. And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen, That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place. And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

Commandments to Apostles:

Mat 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat. And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence. And when ye come into an house, salute it. And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you. And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come. The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household? Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

List of Commandments Given to 12 apostles

If you think the workers are apostles, please read this and answer the following questions. It's your soul and your choice.

Do you think that just anyone can try to keep a few commandments of Jesus Christ to the twelve apostles and that this makes that person an apostle? If you see a person hop on two legs, does that make him a kangaroo? If I can get 200 people to call me the President of the United States of America, does that make me the President of the USA?

Liars Claiming to be Apostles

Rev_2:2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars...
  1. Go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel: These were the Jews living in Jerusalem and Israel and Judea. They were to go to the lost Jews.
  2. Go not into the way of the Gentiles and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not. They were to not go to the gentiles. As a worker, I went to Gentiles, not to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. All the workers I've met went to the Gentiles with the 2x2 propoganda. Have all the workers you've met gone to the Jews?
  3. And as ye go, preach, saying "The kingdom of heaven is at hand". I said "the kingdom of heaven is at hand" when I was a worker preaching. I didn't know what it meant.
  4. Heal the sick. As a worker, I have never healed the sick. I have never seen a worker heal a sick person. I have never heard of a worker even praying for a sick person. Have you ever seen a worker heal the sick? Read more how the apostles healed the sick.
  5. Cleanse the Lepers. I never cleansed a leper. I have never seen a worker cleanse a leper. Have you ever seen or heard of a worker cleansing a leper?
  6. Raise the dead. I never raised anyone from the dead. I never saw a worker raise anyone from the dead. Have you ever seen or heard of a worker raising the dead?
  7. Cast out devils. I never cast out devils as a worker. As a worker, I was discouraged from preaching about devils. I have never seen a worker cast out a devil. Have you ever heard of a worker casting out devils?
  8. Freely you have received, freely give. As a worker, I expected people to house, clothe and feed me. Other workers I've met expected this too. I never saw a worker that didn't expect others to take care of their needs. Have you ever seen a worker that didn't expect you to provide him a room, food and car in exchange for preaching?
  9. Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass for your purses, nor scrip for you journer, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves. The apostles didn't need to prepare ahead of time for their journey because they would be earning their keep and would be provided for by Jesus Christ because he was the one asking them to do this: "the workman is worthy of his meat" I didn't know the gospel and didn't earn my keep preaching and repeating the lies I was taught by workers. Have you ever met a worker worthy of what he expected in return?
  10. When you come to a house, salute it. I never saluted a house when I was a worker. I never saw a worker do this. Have you ever seen a worker salute a house?
  11. If the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it, but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. I didn't have the peace of God when I was a worker. I have never met a worker that had the peace of God (Now that I know what the peace of God is.) Have you ever seen a worker do this? Do not the workers bring lies and deceit; persuading people that they are apostles and they are the only way?
  12. And whoseover shall not receive you nor hear your words, when ye depart out of the house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. I never did this as a worker. In fact, I hope few people believed what I preached as a worker because we were teaching and insinuating lies. I never saw a worker shake off the dust of their feet. Have you ever seen a worker do this?
    Act 13:50 But the Jews stirred up the devout and honourable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of their coasts. Act 13:51 But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came unto Iconium.
  13. ....

    The Twelve Apostles at the Feeding of the Five Thousand Men

    Luk 9:12 And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place. But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people. For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company. And they did so, and made them all sit down. Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets. And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am?

    The Avenging of the Apostles

    Rev 18:19+ And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
