It was November 30, 2003 that I was on air doing the Reality Hour program which at the particular time was called "The Pastor White Reality Hour". During the program I received a call from a listener who made the accusation that "Pastor White" being was an incorrect title for the listeners to have to respond to when calling. He explained that I wasn't the pastor of all who were listening to the program because many had their own pastors, therefore according to his understanding, I shouldn't have the listeners addressing me as "pastor".
Well at the time I was thrown into a sense of uncertainty and responded by assuring the caller that I would definitely seek an answer from God as to the right or wrong concerning his acussation. I also informed him that whatever the Lord revealed unto me that I would publicly share the information on the next program.
Well that evening after the program I went and conducted service at the local temple over which I pastored, after which I retired to the study and privately sought to gain a perfect understanding concerning the caller's accusation. As I examined the scriptures concerning Christ and his disciples somehow I came to the conclusion that the caller was somewhat correct and with that discovery I sat there and began pondering just what "on air" title I should use going forward. So as I sat pondering on whether to use "The Elder White Reality Hour", or "The Brother White Reality Hour", which neither seemed to register in my heart, the voice of the Lord rang out and said, "change your title to apostle!" Now being somewhat disturbed upon hearing the Lord's voice and the thing of which he was instructing me to do I responded by asking him if he would support his instruction with scripture, at which time he said, "Luke four, eighteen and nineteen". Due to already having my bible opened I proceeded to find and read the scripture I was given. When I read Luke 4:18,19 I became weighted down in my heart and just simply slouched back in my chair and began absorbing the fact that what was happening was indeed real. So I asked God, "Lord why do I have to be an apostle?" And his final response to me was, "for the battle that you are about to engaged in, you need the title!"
And there you have it. This is my official testimony of having been called to the apostleship within the service of the Lord.
