To understand how God and His Church work today we must look at how He has worked in the past. God is the same, and has not changed (Heb. 13:8, 2nd Ne 29:9 ).   God has consistently followed
a pattern ( shown here ) for
revealing Truth to His Children.
As explained in Ephesians 4:11-
12, Apostles and Prophets are
called and given the responsibility
for “ the perfecting of the Saints
[ members ].” This is the foundation
for God ‛s Pattern.
 
       
       
  So what are Prophets and Apostles, and what makes them different from other people ?  
  Prophets and Apostles are righteous men whom God calls as His Witnesses. These men do not become Prophets and Apostles by studying books about religion, or by attending a theological seminary. They learn through firsthand experience from God about the Godhead (Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost ), and His Eternal Plan of Salvation for us, His children. They get their diplomas directly from God. ( Jer. 1:5 ; John 15:16 ; Heb. 5:4 ; Ex. 28:1 )
