Corinthians 12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles,
secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of
healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
The word helps,
according to Strongs Concordance means to succor, participate, to help. An
illustration would be; someone assisting in lifting a heavy object. People
called to the area of helps are greatly needed, to fulfill the vision of
And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed:
and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
Vs.12 But Moses'
hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat
thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one
side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were
steady until the going down of the sun.
The first deacons were ordained by the Apostles, to take care of the
food to them.
Acts 6:1-6 Vs.6
Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report,
full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.
* In appointing Deacons, the Apostles were free to study and take care of
needs of the
church. The word deacon means servant and they were to take care of
affairs of the church.
1 Timothy 3:8-12
Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much
wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;
Vs.9 Holding the
mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
Vs.10 And let
these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon,
being found blameless.
Vs.11 Even so must
their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
Vs.12 Let the
deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own
1 Timothy 5:22
Lay hands suddenly on no man.....
* People should
not be appointed to any thing to quickly, let them be proven first.
2 Kings 3:15-16
But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel
played, that the hand of the Lord came upon him.
Vs.16 And he said,
Thus saith the Lord, Make this valley full of ditches.
1 Samuel 16:23 And
it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David
took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was
well, and the evil spirit departed from him.
Anointed music plays a vital role in ministry. In the first scripture the
to hear from
God, when the minstrel played, the Holy Spirit moved upon the prophet
and he spoke
the word of the Lord.
* In the second
scripture, the evil spirit departed, when David played unto the Lord.
* The scriptures
say that God inhabits the praises of his people. Where God is, the devil
has to leave!
20:21-22 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed
singers unto the Lord, and that should praise the beauty of
holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the Lord;
for his mercy endureth for ever.
Vs.22 And when
they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the
children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah;
and they were smitten.
Anointed music in church services, brings people into praise and worship,
and that is
an open door
for God to move. Praising ad worshipping God, prepares peoples hearts
to receive from
God and his word.
* Music that
doesn’t bring people into praise and worship, is simply entertainment. A
person can have
a beautiful singing voice but without the anointing, they are not
lead the worship service. God definitely calls people to this area of
* Churches many
times have to make do with the people that they have, until God
brings in the
people with specific calls. If a person helping doesn’t have an anointing,
they must be
willing to yield to someone that does.
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.
12:12-27 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all
the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
Vs.13 For by one
Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles,
whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one
Vs.14 For the body
is not one member, but many.
Vs.15 If the foot
shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it
therefore not of the body?
Vs.16 And if the
ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it
therefore not of the body?
Vs.17 If the whole
body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where
were the smelling?
Vs.18 But now hath
God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
Vs.19 And if they
were all one member, where were the body?
Vs.20 But now are
they many members, yet but one body.
Vs.21 And the eye
cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to
the feet, I have no need of you.
Vs.22 Nay, much
more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are
Vs.23 And those
members of the body, which we think to be less honorable, upon these we
bestow more abundant honor; and our uncomely parts have more abundant
Vs.24 For our
comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having
given more abundant honor to that part which lacked:
Vs.25 That there
should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same
care one for another.
Vs.26 And whether
one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be
honored, all the members rejoice with it.
Vs.27 Now ye are
the body of Christ, and members in particular.
Every person in a church is important and is needed. Paul compares it to a
body ( above
scripture ) each is just as important as the other, and each, needs the

something to offer and the needs are numerous. A few examples:
singles, married, the hungry, those that need clothing, people
