Doctrine of Ambassadorship
1. Definition: An ambassador is one sent to represent one of High
Position, we are appointed to represent the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Cor 5:20; Eph 5:20

2. The profile of an Ambassador:
a. The believer does not appoint himself. A believer is appointed
by the Lord.
b. An ambassador does not support himself–Phil 4:19. God
provides all our needs.
c. An ambassador has instructions in written form. The Word of God
is for believers. Believers have the mind of Christ. 1 Cor. 2:16.
d. An ambassador does not belong to the country where he is sent.
The believer is not of the world, but of heaven.Phil 3:20
e. The ambassador does not enter a country for his own personal
interest. He is a representative of the country he represents. We
believers, as ambassadors – represent the Lord Jesus Christ.
f. An ambassador does not take an insult as personal. God takes care
of His name and Word; we are not here to defend, but to spread the
gospel; The Holy Spirit takes care of the results.
g. When an ambassador is recalled, it is because war is being
declared. When the Church is recalled, hostility begins in the
Tribulation. The Church is raptured before the tribulation. 1 Thess
4:13-17

3. The Royal Ambassadorship is specialized and intensified in the gift of
Pastor-teacher. Eph 4:11; 5:20

4. The Royal Ambassadorship relates to evangelism. 2 Cor 5:20

5. The Royal Ambassadorship mandates the function of spiritual selfesteem
and impersonal love. Philemon 1: 9

6. The Royal Ambassadorship is related to the Angelic conflict. 1 Cor 4:9;
Eph 3:10; 1 Tim 5:21; 1 Pet 1:12

7. The privilege of being a Royal Ambassador is the highest calling. We
are called to the highest calling for Christ. Phil 3:14
