  4. Apostle Nkosi apparently had a headache and died.
    It is alleged that a week before he died, he called a meeting with his officers and told them he is dying soon and none of them will succeed him and they will be led by a white Apostle. Currently all his congregations are led by a white Apostle. He was 61 years old when he died.

    2. To be an Apostle, you must be related to the current Apostle, be a child to an apostle, or marry the Apostle's daughter, generally, be a next of kin.
      In the past dreams and visions were used, nowadays, being an Apostle is a career and inheritance. To ensure the generations of the current Apostle never suffer financially.

    5. To become an Apostle still comes through visions and dreams. It is not a career and one does not become an Apostle when related to a previous Apostle. It is outrages to think like that. It is not a mob.

    6. Even as a Brother or Sister in the Church dreams are often the guiding force of your life. Apostles are appointed from dreams collected from many.

  14. The meaning of the term “apostle” comes from its root verb “send” (apostello). Its basic meaning is an agent or an ambassador, who, within the limits of his assignment, had the same authority as the one who sent him. The apostle was legally identical to his master. He had the power of attorney and “apostle” accurately describes the office Jesus held and his relationship to God.
    A man’s agent is like the man himself, not physically, but legally. As apostle or agent Jesus was sent with the full authority of the one who sent him. Jesus said that the one who received his own apostles whom he had sent received Jesus himself, and not only Jesus, the One who had sent him (Mt 10:40-42; Jn 13:20). The NT apostles were apostles of Jesus, and Jesus was an apostle of God. It is in this context that Jesus could say both, “He who has seen me has seen the Father” (Jn 14:9), and without contradiction, “The Father is greater than I” (Jn 14:28). In character and authority he could be seen as identical with the Father, but in all other ways the Father was greater

  15. Thank you Tebogo

    Very cleverly said and quoted just a as a true oac member or officer would and should do. Its for the absolute clarification of the 'only' way to salvation for the sinful soul of mortal man to be united and to enter into the everlasting heaven and peace unto eternity.
    (Please note I quote my own words out of memory) So let me ask why did Jesus say "I am son of God and so are you" why did he then say "The works I do you can do also, and even greater works" Did Jesus not there clarify that we are all equal to him as a, son/daughter of God ? Why did Jesus not say "I am an apostle of God ?" as you say "an agent or an ambassador" ? Why did Jesus not say you are "an agent or an ambassador" of God ? yet he clearly states Sons/Daughters of God we are.
    Jesus call his disciples "Ye are my friends if ye do the things which I command you. No longer do I call you servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends: for all things that I heard from my Father I have made Known unto you. Ye did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you, that ye should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should abide" (John 15:13-16)."
    This also then brings us to the next point, from when was Jesus the Son of God ? well it must be from day 1 not so ? Well so are we through Jesus's testimony the son and daughters of God from day 1, also perfect as he was-is. Jesus was just a way shower teaching us the true way, of being part of God from day 1. Hence the reason why he Jesus never performed any baptism, sealing or other rituals to make people a Son/Daughter of God, as he knew we are all a child of God as part of God from the beginning. Jesus also never started any form of religion around him, yet others that came after him did so, Saul of Tarsus especially as he did not really understand the true teachings of Jesus, if Saul understood that he was already the Son of God what would there be to follow or start.

    1. Thank you very much beloved I am also enlightened .We must understand that Jesus Christ is the one who started this ministry,i will randomly try to cover the points you have raised.If we understand baptism we will understand that through the testimony one got baptized hence J.C testified his disciples,secondly he said to Peter upon this rock i will build my church,and he sealed them with the holy spirit of promise" Receive ye the holy ghost "John20:22.You become a child of God a rebirth process receiving the word of testimony Paul never started any form of religion but continue with the ministry of J.C that is why he said "you are no more strangers...Ephesians 2:19 1Cor 12:27-28 .We cannot say Paul did not understand the the teaching of J.C 1Tim 1 acts 8:15 .Thank you we will talk

    2. Saul is a outright imposter and NOT the 13th apostle as he only came 18 to 22 years after Jesus.
      1) Why did J.C not declare to his 12 disciples/friends that a unknown one will come to show the way years after J.C was gone ? "How can Paul be a 13th apostle when Revelation 21:14 says there are only twelve?" Why did Jesus keep his Apostles in the dark about Paul in Matthew 28? Why didn’t he tell them a new guy would be showing up making some changes in the plan?
      2) Paul claimed to have encountered Jesus in the desert on the road to Damascus. Jesus told me in Matthew 14:15 when someone claims to see him in the desert don’t believe him. Should I take the advice of Jesus?
      3) if Paul appeared in Jerusalem in Acts 9:26 after his conversion, then why does he tell the Galatians in 1:18 that he waited three years to go? Why does he assure us in v.20 he is not lying?
      4) Paul claims in Ephesians 3:3 to have knowledge of mysteries of God revealed only through him. Paul bears witness of himself even though Jesus says he himself could not in John 5:31. Is Paul superior to Jesus?
      5) Paul speaks in Ephesians 6:19 of making known a “mystery of the gospel.” Why wasn’t this mystery shared with the 12 apostles Jesus spent 3 ½ years training?
      6) If the “mysteries of ” God were revealed through a single man Paul as he claims in Colossians 1:23-26 and elsewhere, then what grounds do we have for rejecting Joseph Smith, Mohammed, the Pope and many others who claim exactly the same thing?
      7) Who has authorized Paul to give new commandments as he does in 1st Thessalonians 4:2?
      8) Paul commands in 3:6-7 that we obey the traditions he commands. Did Jesus ever tell us we should obey Paul?
      9) Why does Paul quote the Greek philosopher Philo in Titus 1:12? Does the Holy Spirit quote philosophers as resources?
      10) If Jesus says in Matthew 22:38 the law and the prophets hang on two great commandments, why does Paul OMIT the most important one saying in Galatians 5:14 the law is fulfilled in the second one only?

      Any case this is just a few questions they are not put here to convince any old apostolic to rethink their faith. It is just stated to show that are other knowledge other than the oac. True enlightenment comes from with in and not trough scriptures. I can truly say that the oac is like any other denomination there are no differences at all, at the core level as they keep you in duality telling you that you are a sinner in many ways, to keep you tithing your money to them. Most officers and members are really good people and has no clue of what they are standing for, until they wake up to the absolute truth with in.

    4. We don't join the OAC, we become part of the body of Christ...Its a way of life not an organization. Gal 5:22 must be my lifestyle. Did any one of you people spoke to one of the Brothers or Sisters or Officers of the OAC to get answers of the above before making any statements. It is good questions.

  23. My brothers and sisters help us rebuild the faith in our OAC. There is an epidemic that is slowly eating our congregants nowadays. Senior leaders say and do as they wish in the congregations and money matters are dividing the church. What is the best way to deal with "bazaars"which are used as forms of fundraising strategies because the new formed "Overseers funds"are like devils places and overseers who cannot follow these new developments are at tyhe mercy of opportunustic elders who manipulate them. Please help.

    Let me try to respond to your letter dated 24 February 2014 about Paul being an imposter.Point no 1 There is no where in the bible were Paul claimed to have encountered J.C instead Jesus revealed himself to Saul/Paul on his way to Damascus Acts 9:1-5 in verse 15 the Lord said he is a chosen vessel unto him to bear his name ,read until verse 16 in verse 17 Ananias confirm this that Christ appeared unto Saul.Read Acts 9:22 it answer your question number 3.
    Paul never declared himself as the 13th apostle but Christ who appeared unto him declared him his vessel Romans 1:1
    Point no 4 Read again Ephesians 3:3 It is not saying only through him ,he is testifying of the mystery of Christ in verse 5 he is not reffering to him but the holy apostles and prophets .How can a prisoner be superior to the who arrested him ? Ephesians 1:1 Galatians 1:1 in Matthew 13 :11 Christ confirms to the disciples that they have been giving the power to know the mystery of heaven.

    Read this verse clearly with an open mind 1Thess 4:2 The authority is from the Lord
    Point no 10 Paul does not omit anything here ,if you listen or read carefully ,here he talks about love he does not say in the second law but one word which is love.

  29. Dear OAC members, the OAC is a sect and worship the apostle and do not worship God. Praying for the dead, laying on of human hands to receive the Holy Spirit, etc etc., nothing that they do is according to the Bible. How can a mortal take the place of Christ? Please, please read the Word for yourself, you don't need the OAC interpretation thereof to understand the Word, and I pray, sincerely, that God will open your minds to the truth. Please seek true, divine salvation through the written Word.

    1. Dear sir/mam

      I can assure you that the oac members and or officers shall not answer you here on this public forum, members and oac officers are taught and asked not to answer in the public. The main reason for this is they believe that God speaks to you face to face only, as the scriptures teaches. The oac also does not conduct any other public statements and prayers and so on, you will never hear them on radio,Tv or so, it is against their policy to do so in any way manner or fashion.

      In short I shall give a VERY brief explanation about the oac your questions above shall better be answered in person. I suggest to contact the oac where they will revere you to a local congregation where a brother, underdacon or priest will come and visit you. This will take place on a Monday or Thursday evening. These 2 days are set aside for testimony. Please note it is impossible to explain the oac in a short message like this. but here goes.

      The oac is like any other christian church organization as they will teach you how they see things and the scriptures. They only believe in the holy scriptures old and new testament in a spiritual way. They believe in God in flesh and that they, the oac is the ONLY son of God with ONE way to salvation. Their teachings are mostly based on that on Saul whom claimed himself a apostle and the voice of God. Note that all the disciples of Jesus was alive in his time and he was NOT anointed as apostle by any of them not even Peter whom Jesus has said that the church will be built on him, Peter.

      Their main teaching is that of Ephesians 4 where it is said by Saul that God said there are apostles, prophets, evangelist, pastors and teachers in His church.

      Then they also like referring to Malagi 2 and 3 where it peaks about Tithing please note that Malagi was written 400 years before the Christ.

      Next the 3 sacraments of holy baptism, holy communion and holy sealing by the hands of the apostle are very important to the oac. As they believe by these sacraments and tithing of course you become a true sealed member on the body of Christ.

      Then all you have to do is be active in the oac's works and listen to the one placed above you and the apostles teachings without question. You will be expected to offer your full tithing's as a means to be blessed by God as a full member on the body of Christ which is ONLY to be found in the OAC.

      Your other questions will be answered in a spiritual way If you are worried about non oac members whom does not make it .... well no problem the apostle seals the dead those whom had departed and finds them self's in darkness one's a year per overseer-ship.

      So my friend I suggest to contact the oac asap for a personal testimony evening face to face.

      Good luck

    2. To you annonymous

      I won't say a lot, all I can say is Apostle Kabble was odeyned by Jesus through visions and dreams by the original 12 Apostels. He was then sent to Africa to spread the Gospel of God. In OAC you can never last if you want to do things according to your way and not God's way.

    3. Dear sir/mam

      I was explaining to this poor lost, seeking soul the path to salvation which is ONLY found in the OAC, as the body and Son of God and Christ. I am quite sure he will be taught by the most holy evangelist of God via the OAC about the Klibbe odeynedment and much more.

      Thank you for pointing out the facts about apostle Klibbe just more absolute proof that the Old Apostolic Church is the OLNY, ONLY way to salvation and Christ. I believe it is important that he should also know about the wonderful path that awaits him on the road to true redemption and everlasting Salvation.

      Adding I want to teach you about the great acclivities awaiting you, on Mondays there is testimony with the holy underdeacon here you will you out into the dark world to bring the message of light and salvation.

      Thursdays are filled with fun where you will attend choir practice of various kinds, such as community, Eldership or Overseership

      Wednesdays are bread-break evenings where you will be taught and enlighten about the latest teachings of the holy apostle and some testimony as well. This is a great evening as you may also ask questions. Some Wednesdays are set aside for family time.

      Thursdays are the same as Mondays testimony evenings.

      Friday nights are various activates such as, additional choir practice, play practice, thanksgiving and so on. Just listen on Sunday mornings for the announcements.

      Saturday is youth acclivities again just listen on Sunday mornings for the announcements.

      Sunday is service in the mornings and evenings and sometimes social evenings.

      Remember that TITHING the payment of 10% of you full salary as prescribed by the holy scriptures Malagai 2-3 are ALWAYS a MUST for blessings from God as it is ONLY by the OAC that you can have everlasting life and blessings.

      Blessings.
