Signs of an Apostle

What are the Signs of an Apostle? Interview with Fred Herzog


Veteran prophet and apostle Fred Herzog details two signs of an apostle. His insights are often overlooked and thought-provoking. For sure, his humor comes through with the story at the end of the video. Fred speaks with the gentleness and authority that we would expect from a seasoned apostle and man of God. He takes only two minutes to lay out important Biblical signs of an apostle.  Watch the video here.

Fred’s insight into the question “What are the signs of an apostle?” may not convince the skeptic that apostles and prophets exist in the twenty first century. His thoughts, however, go a long way to help anyone with an open mind to discover the true heart and ministry of an apostle in any age.

What Does the Bible Say about the Signs of an Apostle?

“The signs of a true apostle were performed among you with all perseverance, by signs and wonders and miracles.” (1 Corinthians 1212). (Note: the King James Version uses the term patience instead of perseverance.)

In another letter, Paul details more of the work and signs of an apostle. Writing under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, he explains apostles are given “for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ . . .”(Ephesians 4:12).

The Bible teaches, of course, through both word and example. By example we learn one of the signs of an apostle is to expand or open up new spiritual or geographical territory for the Kingdom of God. Barnabas and Paul are primary examples of apostles who opened new territory.

The signs of an apostle are summarized  in this definition:  An apostle is a Godly Christian leader called and supernaturally gifted by God to open new spiritual and geographical territory for the gospel, lay foundations, equip believers, and serve as catalyst and coordinator for churches and ministries.
