The Spirit of our Father is drawing us into the ‘day of HIs power.’ What I’m sharing here I would normally share on our “Apostolic Teaching Fathers!” Forum but felt like I needed to share it here on my BLOG as well.
Had a great visit with the brethren in Bellville today and am always amazed at the “spirit of wisdom and revelation” that is loosed when we gather together. Pastor Lynn Burling, Bro. Dean Harper, and young power house Brett Johnson are leaving for India on Sunday afternoon, Sept. 25, and will be gone for almost three weeks. What an awesome burden and vision these men are carrying with them and powerful things will be accomplished!
“Fathering a Generation” is so much bigger than one man, or fathering individuals for the kingdom! Just as Abram’s name was changed from “Exalted or high father” to Abraham, “Father of a Multitude”, so must we shift our thinking and our focus on discipling and preparing a group, a people, and a nation for the Lord! Many spiritual fathers are missing the opportunity of a lifetime to shift from ‘protecting a legacy’ to ‘preparing a lineage” that will change the course of generations, and bring a powerful DESTINY!!!
One of the meanings for a ‘father’ is a ‘producer of a certain thing.’ It’s not a manufacturing of something, it is a “beginning” of something that cannot be stopped, a progeny of the Father Himself being multiplied into a “host of sons and daughters” in the kingdom that He has called to Himself. The mandate upon our fathering is now transcending a gathering or a teaching of people to find their purpose; rather, it is a ‘multiplying of a generation’ a re-gene-ing of the very heart of the Father for the world itself!
Abraham had no idea how that in one son Isaac, and Isaac’s son Jacob, who became Israel, that the fulfillment of the mandate of His Father God would become multiplied into a multitude! Spiritual fathers, ministry fathers, and apostolic fathers are not being raised up in this hour for there own gain or purpose, they are being raised up to ‘transition and transform’ a chosen generation, a royal priest-hood, a holy nation and HIS OWN SPECIAL PEOPLE to literally thrust the saints into the greatest ‘DAY OF HIS POWER!’
This is more than a change of protocol or of order, this is a whole, new day to witness the resurrection and ascension power of Jesus Christ in His Church that changes the course of the nations! The riches of the glory of His Grace is being loosed in us so that now, once again, Fathers can be ‘generators’ of a generation and those that are aligned and connected with it just simply have to brought together as a powerful pipeline where the water never stops flowing!
What is your vision fathers? Where is your heart? I pray that we can participate and share in this awesome day of His power as Apostle Paul shared with his son Timothy: 2 Timothy 1:9,10- …”who have saved us and called us, not according to our works, but according to HIS OWN PURPOSE AND GRACE which was given us in Christ Jesus before time began, but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel…. ”
BECOMING WILLING IN THE DAY OF HIS POWER- Ps. 110:3
