The Ascension Gifts of Christ

We give gifts to one another at the wrong time of the year. Do we realize that the very first thing that the risen Christ did when He ascended into heaven (after descending to the lower parts of the earth) was to give gifts to men? (see Ephesians chapter 4:10 & 11) These gifts were given for the building of the body of Christ,  (the church) of God. Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers, what has come to be called the FIVE FOLD were the gifts given. As an arborist I find it interesting that a tree has five main parts, The roots, the trunk, the limbs, the leaves, and the fruit. For further info see youtube movie Ephesians from the flock part three and four on the page in this web site entitled The Word.
