(3) Those who, being filled by the Holy Spirit, received the power to fulfill the works commanded by Christ (Acts 15:28; 1 Corinthians 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 4:8; 1 John 5:9-12).

(4) Those who were given the power to perform miracles to bear witness to the gospel of the water and the Spirit on this earth. God gave great power to the Apostles so that Jesus Christ may be revealed through them as God the Savior (Acts 9:40; 2 Corinthians 12:12; Hebrews 2:4).

(5) Those who received a special calling, as well as special blessings, from God (Acts 9:15; 2 Corinthians 1:1; Galatians 2:8).

The authority given to the Apostles is the authority to forgive peopleís sins, and as such, ignoring those who have this authority will lead to oneís destruction.
