Deut 30:6 And  the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.
Title of today’s message: The Substance and the Shadow of circumcision.

Deuteronomy 10:16King James Version (KJV)
16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked.
Circumcision is designed for two goals: one to love God and two is to love His Word. We shall prove this in the coming verses.
Circumcision is the family mark from the family of Abraham and all descendants who will keep the covenant of loving the Father and His Word from generation to generation until Jesus shows up.
Circumcision is the Father’s first duty in the next generation.
When the Father arrives on the boy on the eighth day; knife makes the introductions between them.
When the knife has introduced the two to one another then a prophetic family name is given to the son.
This is the procedure of introducing a son to the family and his assignments to this family are locked in his name.

Moses has twice mentioned the Substance of Circumcision : the Heart.
Abraham and the Fathers of Israel have performed circumcision on the flesh of reproductive organ which is the Shadow.
When the Fathers of Israel were circumcising the Shadow which is the foreskin God the Father of spirits (hearts) was circumcising the Substance which is the heart.
This is what Moses explained in Deuteronomy chapter 10 and chapter 30.
The Substance was already there in Heaven: The Body of Christ that we are and the Shadow was on earth which is the Physical Body and the foreskin.
The natural Israel were introduced into the culture of the Body of Christ which was waiting to manifest in the last days.
This Body is made of Sons and not Church members.
This was a Body that was circumcised by Father God in their hearts.
Which means they were a repentant sons.
If you read these two chapters in Deuteronomy Moses is calling Israel to repentance.
He is saying they must not be stiff-necked people.
Now the part of stiff-neck; I will allow Dad to teach about it. It is very interesting and I want to give the explanation to him as he does it best.
Circumcised sons are Repentant Sons.
This is the heart of my message today.

At what rate are members repentant as compared to sons?
Repentant sons are sons who are ever ready to receive a Software Upgrade from their fathers with fast changing seasons.
The success of the IT companies depend on how fast they grab the knowledge of upgrades that come from time to time in the industry.
When a son is given an Upgrade instruction it does not even take 5 minutes.
When a member is instructed to repent he/she does not see it as upgrade opportunity and will hop from one church to another and only repent when he is terminally sick maybe after 10 years.
A member will only repent when you say a car or a house is on the way or healing is on the way.
A son repent to prepare for the next generation and not for selfish reasons.
The kind of battles we fight today are upgraded everyday by the enemy and only an upgraded sons will lead armies to the battle.
There are some battles that only sons can win and not members.

Members need only motivational messages but sons know that repentance is an opportunity of upgrade.
In the time of church business only a motivational book can be a best seller not a book to sons.
I did not expect to come to this angle so soon; I thought we will first read Deuteronomy 10 and 30 thoroughly before we come here.
There is no way that you will run away from your eighth day a day of repentance and a day of circumcision.
We have seen in Joshua 5 that grown up men who ran away from their eighth day had to face it in the river of Sonship the river of Repentance the Jordan river.
Eight is a number of new beginnings and it takes repentance to meet newness.
We have embraced this season of Father and Son not to secure our market base in church but because of repentance.
Wait until next year and you will see sugar coated messages of Sonship on television which have to assure members that they are sons in some way.
The time is coming when circumcision and sonship will be some Hollywood and Disneyland toy. When that time comes be sure you know the heart of God about sonship and circumcision.

Circumcision is a tool for loving the Father and His Word.
There is a Word we can’t consume unless we are Repentant.
Repentance and circumcision is an opportunity for Software Upgrade.
Many want to repent only when they are promised Lifestyle Upgrade.
This is not a popular session and I pray we will go through this circumcision topic as God graces us.
Thank you let’s meet in the next session and continue about circumcision.



Ricci J Hausley Sr : Son you have taken what was shared way beyond what I initially shared with you, and you MUST know how proud I am of you. Sonship is the ‘central theme’ of the word of God and you have the pulse and the heartbeat of God. God our heavenly father revealed himself as a Father and Son relationship. The apostolic message of Sonship, by being relational is the Apostolic Master Key to the entire Kingdom of God. Otherwise it is just a bunch of revelatory teachings leading to no where. Jesus and the Holyghost mission is to get us to the father. Jesus said no man comes to the father but by me. The father is invisible to the human eye, and that is by divine design. God the Father chose to reveal Himself in the face of Jesus Christ His Only begotten son. No wonder JEsus said “When you see me, you see the father.” He also said I and My Father are One.” Jesus came to put a face on His father, to reveal his shape and his form. Part of JEsus apostolic mission was to introduce us to his father and to restore God’s human family, Adam’s offspring back to his father. JEsus gave his life as God’s son as a ransom for many. All of us were spiritual orphans sold into slavery. Jesus became the ransom to free the son in us. He who the SON sets free is free indeed. My spiritual father use to share with me like this and I thought he was the most backwards man I have ever met. When he opened up this grace to me, I discovered he was Kingdom and I was the one who was backwards and cross-threaded. My first spiritual father passed away in 1988 and his name was Pastor Roy Wheeler. We walked together as father and son for almost 16 years. I had the experience of what it mean’t to be fathered, but what was missing in my life was the foundation of the Apostolic revelation. God SENT my spiritual father Apostle Charles W. “Chuck” Clayton in my life to clear the table with the Spirit of Adoption in his hand. I allowed him to circumcise my heart and to break the spirit of abandonment and the orphan off of my life. Son once again I am so very proud of you for you are taking the mighty apostolic baton that was passed to me by Apostle Chuck, and you are running your leg of the race like Isaac and Jacob. Keep plowing in this so vital area and keep writing for the future generations, God bless. Relationally Yours, your father in Christ, Apostle Ricci J. Hausley Sr.

Amen praise God.
MAT3.16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:  And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

I would like to begin with this scripture today in our fourth session.
In this river of sonship we have the father spirit forever speaking.
It was after crossing this river that the sons of Israel found their sonship identity.
This is where Joshua took the role of the spiritual father when the fathers failed to circumcize their sons; this is the place where their circumcision was announced.

JOS5.1 And it came to pass, when all the kings of the Amorites, which were on the side of Jordan westward, and all the kings of the Canaanites, which were by the sea, heard that the Lord had dried up the waters of Jordan from before the children of Israel, until we were passed over, that their heart melted, neither was there spirit in them any more, because of the children of Israel.  At that time the Lord said unto Joshua, Make thee sharp knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time.

This is the place where the Elijah Father spirit left the Double Portioned (inheritance given to first born) son Elisha.
2KI2.11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.  And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.  He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan;  And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the Lord God of Elijah? and when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.

Prophetically this is the place where fathers introduce sons into their ministry.
This is the place where mantles change hands
This is the place where fathers cease from their works and enter into rest in order for sons to take over.
However we do not see father Joseph, here we see the prophet who carries the Elijah spirit coming to introduce the Everlasting Son to the Everlasting Father.
MAL3.1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.

MAL4.5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of 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.

Jesus receives the Approval and Accreditation from His Father who is well pleased.
This Word was sufficient to propel the ministry of Jesus.
MAT17.3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.  Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.  While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

We see again this Elijah Spirit of father and son returning to the mountain to come and make this assurance once more.
After the son completes his year of training in sonship apprenticeship he needed the approval of the father and not of the customers.
Jesus in the Kingdom business receives twice the approval of the Father in the presence of the Elijah Spirit.
The Elijah Spirit resembles a spiritual father.
Yes we expected Joseph to be the one doing the handover but when it comes to the Kingdom the Elijah Spirit is the one that will always show up.
Your spiritual father will show up and that is sufficient.
I pray that you receive your Jordan moment in this session in Jesus Name.
You have heard the words from my father Apostle Hausley Sr and that is sufficient for my ministry.
You need the encouragement in your ministry from your father.
You need the approval from your spiritual father.
As he read these three sessions of the conference I was afraid waiting for him to come with the knife to cut a few rough corners of this conference.
But he came with approval.
When you receive the Mantle and begin your ministry in the absence of the father there is trouble waiting on the way.
You need approval from everyone and you end up performing.
You chase the Bestseller position for your book when you are supposed to be writing the Best Life Transforming book.
Ok let me not go there.
I am challenging you in this session not to enter the river of sonship Jordan without a father.
I stand with the Elijah Spirit in this River to call you to meet your father.
Which brings me to my full names which my father gave me Elijah Sicelo Vanto.
I stand with this anointing in this conference to say I am called to help you meet your father
The name of the prophetic school of my Dad is Samuel Elijah Prophetic College.
This session is dedicated to my Dad to say thank you for standing with me in the Jordan River.
Who is standing with you in your Jordan River?
