Restoring the Relational Foundations
To my son Lumko Vanto and all sons and daughters in the Lord,
And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers,lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. – Malachi 4:6 kjv
A slave and orphan are not permanent family members but a son is a permanent member, when the Son sets you free you are free indeed – Apostle Ricci Hausley
Life lessons on Relational Grace
The life lessons shared here are nuggets of wisdom passed from generation to generation from a father to a sons, a mother to a daughter, a parent to a child who share a certain relational pattern in the Body of Christ. I, Vanto Vanto am a beneficiary of such relational grace from my Spiritual Father Apostle Ricci Hausley Snr. I am grateful to meeting him and share wonderful moments of life lessons as I still do to this day.
My metaphorical summary of his teachings to me is that I need to be a spring that will give birth to many rivers. Rivers are big and have names while springs are small and hidden. The invisibility of the hidden spring preserves fresh waters that will go and pour in the visible river. Fathers are the invisible springs who have their visibility through sons, the big rivers. The Scribal Ministry which I committed myself in has been a work of the invisible father feeding his visible sons.
God the Father is comfortable with His invisibility as He made His Son Jesus Christ His visibility to all of us. It is in this very relational pattern where I took comfort in the invisibility that is made visible through sons even those which belong to other fathers.
My other take away point from my Spiritual Dad Apostle Ricci is that he never solicited sons and has equally encouraged me not to solicit sons.
This body of work here is the prophetic responsibility of Malachi 4:6 of turning the hearts of fathers to sons and sons to their fathers and not to ourselves. This is not a recruitment drive but arranging families as they ought to be in their rightful places.
The Grace of our Lord Jesus, The Love of God our Father and the Fellowship of the Holy Ghost our Unity be with you all.
Count it all joy
Life is a sum total of relational patterns built by Christ in us as we share His joy in us with one another.
"Leave your footprints"
There are audiences down the millenia which you will never see but are willing to hear you just as they did with Apostle Paul’s writings
Let Christ build His church.
The central work of God is nothing else but to build Himself into man and build man into Himself so that God and man, man and God, would become a mutual dwelling place, which is God’s building, His corporate expression on earth.
