The Gospel from John Session 15

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.
Shalom

The Gospel of John Session 14

 ⁠⁠⁠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 the 14th Session of The Gospel from John on Sonship. In 14 verses we have come out with 14 sessions. We have labored this much with the New Believer in our mind. This conference brings a challenge to our Schools of Sonship.
Previously this School had concerned itself with those who are in Ministry and Matured believers. But we have seen that as we are busy with these groups there is a lot of damage that is happening daily to New Believers that are added to the Kingdom.
Verse 13 begins with the three words; WHICH WERE BORN. Satan knows that those who are translated to this Kingdom ARE BORN! This is a very important emphasis on remembering. From a long time ago Satan has always left us to celebrate the BIRTH while he ensures that YOU ARE BORN INTO ORPHAN ATMOSPHERE. 
When someone is BORN this means that there is a Father in the house. This statement may shock many today and we can say with certainty that: WE CAN BE BORN AND WE DON’T NEED A FATHER! This has become a norm today but we have forgotten the architect of that reality. 
 
Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God. http://bible.us/Luke3.38.KJV
 
My subtopic in this session is titled: WHICH WERE BORN. Adam was born and verse 38 in Luke 3 says The Father is God! Now that’s the cause for war! Before Jesus was born of God it was Adam who was Born of God.
 Let’s again look at John 1: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. I want to submit to you that Adam was born under the conditions of John 1:13 and therefore he was Satan’s target. First and foremost: HE WAS BORN, therefore, has a Father and Satan had to make him Fatherless! 
 
For all those who are born in this realm; Satan’s primary goal is to make them Fatherless both physically and in spirit! Let me complicate it further; Satan wants you to be Fatherless Physically; Spiritually and in Spirit! Physically; to a Natural Father. Spiritually; to a Spiritual Father. In Spirit; to the Father of spirits Father God. Someone may say Spiritually has to refer to Father God; which will then make Him my Spiritual Father! Well, is sounds good but God is not spiritual He is Spirit! To be spiritual is to follow the spirit. He does not follow Spirit He is Spirit.
 
 Satan has always endeavored to make the absence of the Father in all the three levels to be as natural as breathing oxygen. If it is up to Satan; Nations must be founded outside father relationship. There are two nations in the bible that were founded that way and Satan successfully used these two nations as instruments of opposition to God’s will. 
These nations are the Moabites and the Ammonites. 
 
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 shall explore in the next session what really happened in the formation of these two nations. We have outlined today the principal aim of Satan to nations. This was our 14th Session in our online conference: The Gospel of John and Sonship.

The Gospel from John Session 13

He came unto his own, and his own received him not.  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:  Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

John 1:11‭-‬13 KJV

http://bible.com/1/jhn.1.11-13.KJV 

We spoke of verse 11 in the previous lesson and it states that Jesus came to his own and they received Him not.

We explained the implications of a ministry which is not received in today’s standards. We also showed that your Sonship is strengthened much more in the days which your ministry is not received.

Even after heavens were opened and the Father affirmed His Son in front of many witnesses; His ministry was not received.

After great confirmations of prophets followed with signs and wonders your ministry shall not be received, but if you learn as a son to draw daily affirmations from your heavenly Father you will be filled with joy.

One affirmation from your father whom you relate with is better than twenty confirmations from various prophets whom you have no relationship with whatsoever.

 Orphan spirited leaders who are fatherless will go look for many confirmations of their callings because they miss the affirmations of their fathers.

Before you remind me that this is an affirmation from the Heavenly Father, I will tell you that Jesus was both Son of God and Son of Man.

 This means that He grew getting affirmations from Joseph His Spiritual Father as well.

When the environment and its people do not receive you, we call that place your Wilderness.

After Jesus was affirmed by His Heavenly Father, The Spirit took Him to the Wilderness where He was going to be tempted.

And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,  Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.

Luke 4:1‭-‬2 KJV

http://bible.com/1/luk.4.1-2.KJV

Many people have the idea that when they are full of the Holy Ghost they will be led OUT OF THE WILDERNESS.

They attend many “Holy Ghost filled” night prayers that will remove them out of the Wilderness. But Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost was led by the Spirit INTO THE WILDERNESS!

This was not the only wilderness He encountered but the next wilderness was His hometown.

When you have just been released to ministry or just accepted the Lord Jesus into your life you go back to your hometown and this is your Wilderness.

This is where you come to be tempted, they see your nakedness everyday. They ask you where is your God.

 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?  My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?  When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.  Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

Psalms 42:2‭-‬5 KJV

http://bible.com/1/psa.42.2-5.KJV

For some reason God will always allow our first Wilderness be our hometowns where we shall not be received by those who are our own.

 It Jordan River our Sonship is affirmed but in Wilderness our Sonship is developed.

You begin to see the difference between Sons and Orphans when their needs are defined.

Sons do not emerge in abundance, they show up in scarcity and in rejection the beauty of their Sonship.

This wilderness of the rejection of Jesus was the very recipe that brought us into existence as sons.

He came unto his own, and his own received him not.  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:  Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

John 1:11‭-‬13 KJV

http://bible.com/1/jhn.1.11-13.KJV

He came to His own and they received Him not BUT S MANY as received Him…. Your rejection in your Wilderness strengthens your Sonship and is preparing for MANY SONS!

 Swallow this pill of your hometown with joy in the knowledge that it is developing character for many sons that you will soon lead to the Lord.

 Remember that when some reject you there are those whom it is given to them to hear you.

Sons must be willing to go through the following three stages of development:

1. The Jordan river where your Sonship is Announced. 

2. The Wilderness where your Sonship is developed.

3. The Mountain where your Sonship is reaffirmed.

We shall learn about these three stages in other lessons.

I want to close our lesson today with the verse which will be the main lesson in our next session:

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:

John 1:12 KJV

http://bible.com/1/jhn.1.12.KJV

 You have received the power to become son on the very first day you receive and believe in His Name which is Son of God.

When you receive a prophet you receive the reward of a prophet, but when you receive The Son of God you will receive the reward of becoming son.

We shall open our next session explaining these last two statements. Don’t be left behind.

 Shalom

The Gospel from John on Sonship Session 12

He came unto his own, and his own received him not.  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:  Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.  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.

John 1:11‭-‬14 KJV

http://bible.com/1/jhn.1.11-14.KJV

There will be a big mistake if you address verse 12 without verse 11.

Verse 12 is a continuation of verse 11.

Verse 11 says He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

Now this is a very sad part of this mission of Jesus.

If we were to look at his mission as beginning and ending in verse 11 this would be very discouraging for us who come after him.

Inside verse 11 we have a story of many prophets and apostles.

Inside verse 11 we have stoning and killing of prophets, scribes and wisemen.

The making of our Sonship is not in us being received but it is in the wilderness of not being received.

Not to be received can mean many things for many people.

To some; not being received means closing doors of their local church. To others; not being received means closing down of their television station.

Not being received to some can mean a very low membership in church.

Not being received to some means their books are written but not read.

When servants are not received it can mean there are NO WAGES!

When servants are not received it can mean END OF CAREER!

But thanks be to God for He sent A Son!

Sons have no problem of rejection, in fact the ministries of Sons are born in Rejection, they are born in insignificance!

Sons come to ministry having been affirmed by their fathers.

When the people of this world do not receive you they are already late because before you even began with your ministry as Son; Father already declared from heavens: THIS IS MY BELOVED SON IN WHOM MY SOUL IS WELL PLEASED!

There are many ministries in Africa that suffers from a Rejection Syndrome.

Every television program is about validating the authenticity of the ministry or the Man of God.

They spend time and resources trying to woo their audiences to prefer one ministry over the other.

Because of this fear of rejection they are trapped in a capitalistic competition.

They have more billboards on freeways than all businesses in the cities.

Their programs always have to begin and end with the words: Truly you are a Man of God! Truly this is the right church!

They spend their resources on validation than on giving the message that the world is looking for.

The bible says Jesus came to his own and they received him not.

I know of places in our continent where Jesus would be sent to a certain prophet so that he will have ministry breakthrough!

Slaves and servants can die when they are not received because their wages will not be there.

Slaves, orphans ministries and servant minded are all looking for validation and they are ready to go to lengths of deliverance just for them to be accepted in their communities.

We have a very popular trend in Africa where our clergy has gone to spiritualist just to have powers of being accepted in their places of ministry.

Ministry has become a big industry which can never tolerate the John 1:11 experience from their capitalistic approach.

Jesus paid a price to bring sons home, we want to be paid a price to bring member customers to our organizations.

Let me put it in an easy way; when fathers go out to look for sons they pay but when servants go out to recruit members they get paid.

This does not in any way stand against sowing seed to the Kingdom via the grace carrier that God has ordained to receive on His behalf.

My story to you this evening is that you cannot understand the great mission of John 1:12 if you keep avoiding the reality of John 1:11.

If Jesus experienced verse 11 as the owner and landlord of the whole earth think twice when you want to see verse 12 without verse 11.

Back to Africa; I see many television ministries being on the race of validation than on the mission of raising sons.

But God has already raised a new sound, I have been comforted by the rise of Apostolic Fathers who have come in great grace love to bring the sons back home.

This fulfills the greatest promise Jesus gave when He said He will build His Church. To God be the glory!

Shalom

The Gospel from John and Sonship session 11

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.  The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.  He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.  That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.  He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.  He came unto his own, and his own received him not.  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:

John 1:6‭-‬12 KJV

http://bible.com/1/jhn.1.6-12.KJV

We have spoken at length about this man whom the early scholars settled to call him John The Baptist, when his mandate was far beyond baptizing.

We examined Prophet John’s role as a father who came to turn the hearts of fathers to sons as well as the hearts of sons to fathers.

We saw that he began with his own father as a toddler as the angels worked out in first turning the heart of Prophet John’s father to his son.

We now know that this was an account of John the Apostle speaking about John the Last Prophet before Jesus was born.

Our main story of this conference is about Jesus whom the Book of John gave close to 27 Names and we have since probed that all these Names were paving a way to the Name above all other Names which is Son.

He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.  He came unto his own, and his own received him not.  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:  Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

John 1:10‭-‬13 KJV

http://bible.com/1/jhn.1.10-13.KJV

How would you feel if you bought a house and invited a family to stay in it then one night you come knock in that house and no one open because they don’t know you?

Would you not become furious? Would you not request this family to exit your house?

“He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.”

It must take the greatest humility in the universe to accept refusal of entry from those who are in your world, let alone those who are made by you.

It must equally take the greatest pride and greatest level of witchcraft in the world to refuse your maker even the landlord of the earth you dwell in.

2 Kings 2:23 And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.

2 Kings 2:24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.

This is how prophets respond when they are refused and even mocked at by others and yet they did not create the world.

This practice continue to this present day where there are prophets who would boast of cursing people who reject them and even those who leave their churches.

Psalm 24:1 A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

When David reminded us that the earth is the Lords and all those who live in it; he was building a specific case in the verses to come.

Psalm 24:2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

Have you seen the fury of a man who is refused by a woman that he found naked and hungry and then when she had it all; she decides to leave him?

David is building a case that the Lord is unstoppable; no one can close the gates of this earth for Him.

Psalm 24:3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

These of John 1 do not only stand to face him; they reject him, they remove him out of the living. They crucify him and send him to the grave in his own earth which he made.

Matthew 26: 52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. 53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? 54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

Why did Jesus have this level of patience even to the point of death to accomplish His mission.

Why this level of humility against this level of arrogance? We have seen that prophets would not take this level of humiliation!

That is why God did not send a prophet, but a Son so as to accomplish the following mission:

John 1: 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 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:

Verse 12 shows the prize that Jesus was looking at.

That is why it begins with a BUT; because He refused to be distracted by those who refuse Him.

God sent a Son to bring many sons back home.

He was coming to bring many sons to the Father.

This mission is the biggest mission.

When you are coming to take members to a church you shall have it easy.

But when you are coming to take Sons you shall be crucified.

Do not compete with all those who have come to call members to their denominations.

Bringing sons home will cost you everything.

It cost the Father His Son; His Son is Everything He has.

All things were made through His Son and He had to lose All Things (His Son) in order to gain us back as Sons.

To bring Sons Home you don’t open the Red Sea as the Father but you split your Own Son open.

To brings Sons Home you use all the resources and The Son is all all the resources.

We are called to this same mandate.

We are bringing Sons home and it will not take just another concert with refreshments; it will take everything.

Shalom

The Gospel of John on Sonship Session 10

And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.  And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.  And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.

Luke 1:18‭-‬20 KJV

http://bible.com/1/luk.1.18-20.KJV

Just for a reminder lets just quote from our previous session:

“Zacharias pulled a protest that many fathers are pulling today trying to show why they are not ready to father.

The angel of the Lord said “I am not just an ordinary Angel chosen to deliver these news! I serve in the very presence of God! For this reason you shall be struck dumb until you understand your duties as a father!”

This was Angel Gabriel! Same angel that was going to appear to Mary and Joseph!

I want to say to New Believers your birth is as important as that of John, and the present Zechariases who will take your birth for granted will be struck dumb until they understand their fathering duties.

You are not just New Members, you are Sons!

It is not just ordinary angels announcing your birth!

A special Angel has been sent to announce your Sonship, not just Membership!

God is raising Fathers who will turn their hearts to you in this season!

You shall have the revelation of Sonship just as you enter this Kingdom. Fathers will be struck dumb until you are born until they know that they have been called to convey their dream to your vision.”

Now on our tenth session we will open our understanding to the events that happened when John was about to be born.

We shall focus mainly on Zecharias as the priest of those days.

Let us look at the preceding verses before he met the angel:

There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.  And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.  And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.  And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of his course,  According to the custom of the priest’s office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.  And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense.

Luke 1:5‭-‬10 KJV

http://bible.com/1/luk.1.5-10.KJV

We left the previous session with Zecharias struck dumb because of trivializing the responsibility before him of fathering John.

This man was the most respectable man in Judea along with his wife who came directly under the lineage of Aaron.

He held a very important Priestly Office which put him as spiritual father to the whole community which he keen on prayers as he burnt the essence.

He lost something that a father did not deserve to lose.

He lost something that a Priest did not deserve to lose.

He lost a voice in his community and family.

He was given time to rethink how he has to use his voice as a father.

We have many righteous and very respectable and well known men today in our communities who are not ready to father the Royal Priesthood!

New Believers are Born into Royal Priesthood.

Which is Kingly Priesthood.

God did not allow Zecharias to take the birth of John lightly.

We have cooled down the joy of New Birth in the Households where we are.

We have this idea that New Believers are just Members and Children therefore Sonship is something that will be brought to them when they are “serious members” in our midst.

It is true that they are still carnal or immature, but they are immature Sons.

When we trivialize the Sonship of the New Believers we trivialize their destiny.

Zechariah as Priest had sufficient time to remember his father duties to his son. In the nine months when John was developing in the womb Zecharias had to be quiet lest he confess something opposite to this precious destiny of this New Life.

We are called back to this time of silence and review of our confessions as New Believers are born into Sonship and Kingly Priesthood.

We are not welcoming our servants and slaves who will form a team that will build our pyramids and franchises.

We are called to bring back intersession that will become a womb for the New Believers.

We are Building a Nation of Kingly Priest, a nation that will neither have our servants or slaves.

Zechariah had sufficient time to remember the father duties of priests to the Priesthood sons.

And on the eighth day of the birth of John as the Lord has commanded every father in Israel, Zecharias appeared before the baby and let us hear what he came with:

And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father.  And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John.  And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name.  And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.  And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all.  And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God.  And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judaea.  And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him.  And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,  Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,  And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;  As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:  That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;  To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;  The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,  That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,  In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.  And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;  To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,  Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,  To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Luke 1:59‭-‬79 KJV

http://bible.com/1/luk.1.59-79.KJV

Two things Zecharias appeared with from his house to meet his son 1. A knife to circumcise his son.

2. A Prophetic destiny name for his son.

When we have this two things as fathers before our sons, our tongues shall be loosed by God. We will give a Prophecy after Circumcision. This is how  Kingly Priestly Sons are welcomed in this realm. This is how John and Jesus were received in this world.

This is how we need to welcome New Believers as Sons.

For this reason John came to this world to make Fathers ready just as God made his own father Zecharias to be ready to meet his son and speak destiny over him.

John came with the Elijah Spirit and Power, not to bring down fire from heaven but to turn the hearts of the fathers to the hearts of the sons.

May our hearts be turned to the hearts of our sons today and let us raise them like John was raised like Jesus was raised.

All the Power is needed to Raise Sons.

We don’t need this great Elijah Power and Spirit to show of how we bring down fire and kill prophets of Baal, we need this Power to bring the Elishas.

Shalom

The Gospel from John on Sonship Session 9

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.  The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.  He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

John 1:6‭-‬8 KJV

http://bible.com/1/jhn.1.6-8.KJV

Luke 1: 13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John. 14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth. 15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb. 16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. 17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

Malachi 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: 6 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.

Then this same earthly mandate of John is repeated by an angel speaking to Zecharias:

Luke 1: 17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

Then how did we turn a deaf ear and a blind eye to this great mission and reduced him to JOHN THE BAPTIST?

The new believers need not have a toned down version of the mandate of John, Luke has a detailed account concerning John’s mandate including how he was born.

I had an honor of receiving this teaching concerning the birth of John from Dad Apostle Ricci Hausley Sr in my first week of meeting him.

If John (the Baptist) as we traditionally know him was supposed to turn the hearts of fathers to sons and the hearts of sons to fathers; he would not be able to take people where he did not go.

God had to first deal with John’s father to truly father John in God’s requirement.

The heart of John’s father had to be first turned to this son called John before John would turn the hearts of other fathers to sons.

The fathers are the first ones required to turn their hearts to sons before sons respond likewise.

God begins with the father and priest Zecharias in doing what was going to be done by his son John to many fathers to come.

Luke dedicated the whole chapter 1 detailing the birth of John as well as the responsibilities of John’s father to John.

Before John was going to teach many fathers how to turn their hearts to sons he had to be properly fathered as well.

Dad always said to me: Son you can never take people where you have not gone.

There are many people who come to the spiritual maternity wards to welcome new believers while their hearts are not ready to father but just looking at New Members.

It is time that New Believers be received as Sons and not just as members in the Kingdom.

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:

John 1:12 KJV

http://bible.com/1/jhn.1.12.KJV

It should be explained to New Believers that they are given the Sonship Power from the first day they come other than just the Membership Power of a specific denomination.

God wanted Zecharias to do things right in welcoming John as a Son in his household.

Zechariah was not ready to father just like many who want New Members in their churches while not ready to raise them as sons.

And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.  And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.  And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.

Luke 1:18‭-‬20 KJV

http://bible.com/1/luk.1.18-20.KJV

Zacharias pulled a protest that many fathers are pulling today trying to show why they are not ready to father.

The angel of the Lord said “I am not just an ordinary Angel chosen to deliver these news! I serve in the very presence of God! For this reason you shall be struck dumb until you understand your duties as a father!”

This was Angel Gabriel! Same angel that was going to appear to Mary and Joseph!

I want to say to New Believers your birth is as important as that of John, and the present Zechariases who will take your birth for granted will be struck dumb until they understand their fathering duties.

You are not just New Members, you are Sons!

It is not just ordinary angels announcing your birth!

A special Angel has been sent to announce your Sonship, not just Membership!

God is raising Fathers who will turn their hearts to you in this season!

You shall have the revelation of Sonship just as you enter this Kingdom. Fathers will be struck dumb until you are born until they know that they have been called to convey their dream to your vision.

We shall see in the next instalment how Zecharias responded to this new lifestyle of being dumb while waiting for his son to be born.

This was the ninth session of the online conference titled: The Gospel from John on Sonship.
