John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
This is session 15 of our online conference The Gospel from John and Sonship.
We are continuing on our subtopic yesterday: WHICH WERE BORN.
New Believers are BORN! That is the first message we get from verse 13. This means that they have a Father.
Satan is not about to argue the fact that you are born; neither will he argue the fact that you have a father.
Satan wants to convince you that there are other ways to live without a Father. This presentation he made to Adam and Adam bought into it.
The philosophy says; If you are able to PROVIDE for yourself and PROTECT yourself; you don’t need a Father.
The main thing that is under construction here is that : You can live without being ACCOUNTABLE to anyone.
This was devil’s plan from the beginning and it is still a ruling culture to this day. People want to live and have provision and protection and not account to anybody. This is the greatest success in the world today.
Your success is measured by “how much you have” and “how much independent” you are.
This is the goal all people have today even in the House of the Lord. They even pray for this.
During the days when Father God was reinstituting this Father-Son model through Abraham; He had in mind another Son and that Son was the Corporate Israel. This was not an Individual Son like Adam but was a Nation which was going to be His firstborn Son.
For this purpose He chose Abraham, but Satan was not going to leave this lying down.
When God was busy building this Nation of Kingly Priests; Satan had to react and build another nation alongside this nation in the same time period.
He ordained Abraham as Father of Many Nations because He needed Sons from Abraham and these sons were going to be nations. About 400 years later down the line He was going to make this declaration to the seed of Abraham: And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn: (Exodus 4:22)
About 400 years later down the line He was going to make this declaration to the seed of Abraham: And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn: (Exodus 4:22)
Satan began to build another nation which was going to be a thorn in the flesh of Abraham’s seed 400 years later. When God was busy with Abraham; Satan picked up his own nephew; Lot and began his own project.
How do we know that Satan was reacting to God’s Promise to Abraham? Let us study the developments that followed in Lot’s life.
Genesis 19:36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father. 37 And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day. 38 And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Ben–ammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.
We know the background behind the story; Ben-ammi and Ammon were born in an incestuous relationship between Lot and the daughters.
The younger daughter gave birth to a son and called his name Ben-ammi.
She knew that this day she is sharing a father with her own son and therefore she was not going to call him Son of my father; instead she called him “Son of my People”
This was the genius of satan in those days and it still continues this very day. This invention runs through our democracy today. In my country; the Father position has been taken over by government. They do not say “the fathers or elders have spoken”; they say: “The People Have Spoken.
Son of My People.
Any country that speak about the founding fathers of the respect given to fathers bears the brunt of being a “Patriachy” a good word turned evil by the political system of “The People”
The battle lines are very clear today it is The People against The Fathers.
Even the church which was founded by The Prophets and Apostles under The Father Principle; has now been replaced by The People.
Churches today have adopted a leadership of The People. The People employs the Pastor and The People fire the pastor. One day a new nation was born of the Moabites, a nation of The People whose father had a twisted genealogy.
One day a new nation was born of the Moabites, a nation of The People whose father had a twisted genealogy and the grandfather of this nation was called The People because Ben-ammi’s father was not going to be called Lot but a new father called The People.
Our nations and even our constitutions have a “holy term” called The People. From this, we have all fathers as enemies beginning from Father God to Father in a home to Father in a church.
We have allowed a proverbial Moabite Nation to govern our nation and even our church to this day.
May we return to the Order of The Fathers so that we will be able to pray and say: Our Father.
May our eyes open to the Cultural onslaught against the Father Identity in our Nations and in the World.
I pray that we will go back to basics as Father God created them even as we have to represent the Father Son government in this earth.
