SONSHIP CONFERENCE 2014 – SESSION 6 – JESUS AS THE SPIRITUAL FATHER

ISA9.6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Jesus as a child was born in Bethelehem and He as a Son was given.
When there is the Giver there needs to be a receiver.
We received Him as Son. He knew His primary identity as Son.
He did not want to be introduced as Prophet. He always left every audience with only one impression of His identity, that of a Son.
Though He always introduced Himself as Son, in His lips it was always a message of the Father.
Now the starting point of His ministry and assignment was FATHER.

He began his teaching about the FATHER and ended them with the same.
So much He did this to a point that everytime He was going to open His mouth the disciples already knew that He will tell them about the Father.
He has without doubt taken the Word Father and Son and put them at the centre of His ministry.
If He was to be given an opportunity to announce or put a Bill Board for His ministry, He was going to say : COME AND SEE THE FATHER!
If He was given an opportunity to have a slogan under the logo of His ministry, He would right, COME AND SEE THE FATHER!
Now not only did He play the role of the Son when it comes to being SENT ONE but He also played the role of Everlasting Father when it came to establish the Holy Nation.

This means He had to reveal what shadow was Israel resembling.
Let us pause here and return to a very important revelation from Paul concerning Israel and the Law:
COL2.16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a feast day or a new moon or a sabbath day: which are a shadow of the things to come; but the body is Christ’s.
HEB10.1 For the law having a shadow of the good things to come, not the very image of the things, can never with the same sacrifices year by year, which they offer continually, make perfect them that draw nigh.
How can a shadow tell of something to come?
Is a shadow not supposed to reveal something which was there already.
What comes first, a Shadow or a Substance?
I want to quote from Dad’s letter which he wrote to me yesterday:

Dear Son
As promised here is the message I began on Sunday and as I often state, the entire Kingdom of God is in a mirror image that is totally in the reverse.  When you look at an ‘image’ in a mirror, that image is looking at you the totally opposite of how you are looking at it.  The entire Kingdom is full of these opposites and if you approach the kingdom without the aid of this mirror approach, the concepts will feel backwards.

We know that we need to have first The Body then the shadow, but Paul being a good student knows that it is the Shadow first then the Body later.
We need to have the Begining then the End but God will being with the End and end with the Begining
This means that : (JHN8.58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,) Before Abraham was born, I am.
Therefore Abraham is a Shadow of Father God while Isaac is a shadow of Jesus.
I want us to look at a very important shadow now:
EXO19.6 and ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
Now the main shadow I want to talk about is the Holy Nation.
1PE2.9 But ye are a elect race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, that ye may show forth the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Now Peter says we are the Body called Holy Nation of the Shadow Nation of Israel.
This means that we as the Body called Holy Nation we existed before the Shadow Body called Israel.
EPH1.4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blemish before him in love:
Now the Body called me and you was chosen before Israel was chosen.
The Body of Christ existed before the Body of Israel.
Now Jesus knew these things before He began his ministry.  When He began he chose 12 disciples who were to be made in His likeness as Apostles.
This shadow is the shadow of Israel and his twelve sons.
This puts Jesus in the position of Israel who was called Jacob with his twelve sons.
Why would Jesus be the Body of the Shadow called Israel?
EXO4.22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith Jehovah, Israel is my son, my first-born:

Jesus knew that If He has to begin the Holy Nation he must begin where Jacob began with twelve sons as the True Son while Israel is the Shadow son.
This means He began His ministry in the pattern of Israel as a father to his twelve sons.

Shalom

SONSHIP CONFERENCE 2014 – SESSION 5b – DAD RESPONDS ON SESSION 5

I invite all the participants of the conference to take from what Dad Apostle Ricci Hausley Sr said in response to yesterday’s session:

Dear Son, you made a great observation and a good comparison.  I have had several people calling themselves disputing the revelation of spiritual fathering by using these verses (And might I add use them totally out of context) to state that Jesus was condemning calling another human by the title father.  If that is the conclusion they arrived at when reading those verses, it is clear they know absolutely NOTHING about the word of God.  Son a good course in biblical hermeneutics would settle this dispute and ignorance right away.
  You used the correct approach by taking the entire thought, and the CONTEXT of the story by reading it in its entirety to see exactly what Jesus was saying and to whom was he addressing these statements.  In short Jesus was rebuking the religious Pharisees for ‘lord over the peoples faith with titles’ that had no substances or reason for honor behind them.  Honor is earned and not just given because you carry a title.  Jesus goes into this long discourse about how the Pharisees love to do things for the outward show, and pretense.  Jesus made it clear in one place that the Son of Man did not come to BE SERVED, BUT TO SERVE and to give his life as a ransom.  In sharp contrast the religious Pharisee hypocrites would not lift a finger to model and demonstrate by service what they taught by precept. 

The titles you mention have plenty of verses in their context in scripture to support entirely the biblical teaching concerning fathering.  So when I hear someone attempt to use this as a dispute, I know up front that they are ignorant, and they do not have a clue or know the WHOLE OF SCRIPTURE, and their entire motivation is they love disputing and arguing not learning.  When I get a person like this on a teleconferencing line, I tell them right away you dialed in to the wrong phone line for this is a place of learning not arguing and disputing.  I then rebuke them and tell them if they did not like or agree with what is being taught,  they should  get off the line and start something of their own.  The beauty of administrating a forum like this is you have administrative rights to cut them off, for they have no interest in learning, ONLY disputing.  This is not to say you cannot question a teaching for we  are always to do that with a desire to learn the truth, grow and  get to the bottom of a truth for the best of us only see glimpses of the word of God.  But all modern day Pharisees need not apply. 

I have shared on this chapter n St. Matthew 10 many a time and this is with people eager to really learn.  So I advise to always teach exactly what the context shares and then give your insight into a specific scripture as the first line of defense.  Lastly, I have also seen the spirit of witchcraft operate with this grace of fathering.  We are to NEVER tell grown people what they are to do, for even God uses terms like commandments, understanding that people have choices.  Some people use manipulation, domination and control calling themselves fathering others.  That is not fathering, that is witchcraft.  Scripture teaches us to take dominion over fish, fowl, birds, and creeping things, but Never each other.  We are to submit to each other but NEVER to dominate, control and manipulate each other.  I have seen the other side of this grace and that is people with personality character flaws and control issues use this to control people. 

Now the problem is in the kingdom the word GOVERNMENT = to control.  The difference is the very observation you made as you shared about the spirit behind the personal and the motive behind the person from either end determines what is at work.  I have seen just as equally people use very biblical things to dominate, manipulate and control people.  God does not work that way, and when we have young ones looking to us for guidance and love and care, all of us MUST be extra careful we do not move over into these areas.  while the bible is very clear about the principal of honor of all parents, we DO NOT worship people, it is against the word of God.  Thou shall not have no other God before me, that includes demi-gods.  He said he is a jealous God and he would visit the sins of the parents to the fourth generation  if we slip over into these errors.  Son keep pushing the plow of the Gospel of the Kingdom for the work of God is expanding upon every installment given. 

Relationally yours,

SONSHIP CONFERENCE 2014 SESSION 5 – DO NOT CALL ANYONE FATHER Mat 23:9

NEW EARTH SONS ASSEMBLY
SESSION 5
11 SEPTEMBER 2014

Good morning. Today we will be continuing with session 5.
Dad has joined us in our FB conference site and I look forward to have the contribution he promised soon.
We have finished four sessions which I hope all 50 participants have thoroughly read them.
This morning I wanted to dedicate this session to fathering vs mentoring.
I will however deal with a question from one of the sons yesterday that help us continue to define what spiritual father is to us.
Hi dad, what does this verse mean: Mat 23:9, ‘Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven… Thank you dad…
This is the question we received yesterday and I want to dedicate this session in answering the question.
We will first read the whole instruction and then we will answer it.
When you look at the second verse in this chapter you will notice that this message was bringing correction to “the scribes and Pharisees” and it say they “sit in Moses’ seat”
Already you notice that they have assumed a very high seat and it came with privileges.
Verse 3 says they instruct people to observe certain laws while they themselves do not act out those laws.
Verse 4 says they put heavy burdens on other people’s shoulders while they do not move a finger to carry them as well.
Verse 5 and six says they have secured for themselves very special privileges in these position as a result they are respected everywhere.
Within these privileges they were addressed as Teacher, we see that in verse 7.
They were also addressed as father and we see that in verse 9.
They were also called master and we see that in verse 10.
1. Teacher
2. Father
3. Master
Now for those who understand the formation of the Twelve Tribes of Israel you will understand that these were the highest titles of the tribes.
( I sense a rise of some religious spirit, I request you to prayerful concentrate and really listen and take notes; this is not a preaching. This is a very important teaching.)
(I have laid the rules of this conference and I will not keep repeating them; I ask all mentors to brief their mentees once more)
(When the Spirit of Counsel and the Spirit of Knowledge is around we need to allow Him to unfold I am also listening as He teaches)
Now let us remember that this community had families and they did call their fathers in the household father.
They also have servants who were employed and did call their employers master.
This community also had teachers in various skills and did call them teacher.
But in this case the Father Teacher and Master title that these Pharisees and Scribes demanded from this community was way beyond the one addressed in their households.
Therefore none would return home after this teaching only to tell his dad that “Jesus said I must not call you father.”
The word father in both Greek and Hebrew has several meanings.
They also had fathers of the group of families called Patriarch.
Therefore they were not going to return to him and say “we are told not to call you Patriarch anymore.
Therefore from the context of this story you begin to understand the correction.
MAT23.9  And call no man your father on the earth: for one is your Father, even he who is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your master, even the Christ.

1CO4.15   For though ye have ten thousand tutors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I begat you through the gospel.

Is there a dispute in these two instructions?
Jesus says do not call anyone father and Paul says I am your father!
Well Paul explains the type of father he is; he says he has begotten them.
Our Heavenly Father is the Originator and Source and that is also another meaning of father.
Jesus was not playing with words there but HE WAS ADDRESSING THE SPIRIT BEHIND THE WORD!
People can say the same word but with a different spirit behind that word.
Now the spiritual fathers who are in the will of God understand this.
There are people who will call you “father” and you know that it is just a religious empty title.
But when your son says to you “father” the sonship spirit behind brings to you a different meaning.
There is a time that someone will also come and address you as “father” and you feel that this one is “worshiping” you.
Now this last kind is the kind that had already arisen in this community.
When somebody prays and begin saying “Father!” And then come after prayer and say to his dad at home “father”; the dad knows the difference.
Jesus called Joseph “father” as Son of Man and called God “Father” as Son of God.
This is what every well raised Hebrew son would naturally do.
And Joseph did not have problems with that.
I must however end this session by saying there is a rise already of those who see their leaders as demi  gods and have already began to call them Father as unto God.
This is left with every proper household to discern the spirit behind the one who addresses you as father.
Joseph knew his place as spiritual father and was not confused when Jesus addressed him as father.
Like all spiritual fathers he knew that he is raising Jesus for the Heavenly Father who is the Father of all.
He as Joseph had to become Father representative in the 30 years of Jesus’ life.
I am not teaching this as the ultimate authority.
I am also somebody’s son.
I am therefore laying down this teaching to you in his presence.
I am also willing to learn more.
Remember we always see in part and in every season another part becomes revealed.
Thank you for your time.
Shalom.

SONSHIP CONFERENCE 2014 SESSION 3 – JOSEPH THE SPIRITUAL FATHER

Today I would like to speak about Joseph and his role as the father of Jesus.
Joseph was the spiritual father of Jesus.
As we know that the natural seed was conceived from the Holy Spirit and not from Joseph.
A spiritual father is not a father of the spirit.
God is the Father of our spirits and that does not make Him spiritual father.
God is Spirit and not spiritual.
To be spiritual is to allow the soul to follow the laws of the spirit.
Therefore a spiritual father is someone who is watching over the soul according to the book of Hebrews 13:17 Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account.
Joseph was watching over the soul of Jesus. Continue reading

SONSHIP CONFERENCE – SESSION 2 – INTRO CONTINUED

Having met my spiritual father Apostle Hausley.
He made me put all my credentials at his feet.
When a son meets the father he must be naked before the father.
When you have covered yourself with credentials and giftings there is nowhere to cut.
I had to drop even all ambitions and begin to hear from the father. Continue reading
