Process of Transition – New eBook
Process of Transition – Excerpt from the eBook – Foreword, “A spiritual father that does not expresses the original plan and purposes of God will lack God’s power, and manipulation and control becomes inevitable. Spiritual fathers then begin to control, dominate and manipulate their sons to achieve their selfish agenda, and as a result many are wounded and abused in such relationships, and the family in ruined.”
With these words Apostle Israel steps right into the midst of troubled waters in this present season of God. The subject of “Spiritual Fathering” has become popular and many are making declarations concerning this subject without a clear revelation of the heart of the Lord. Here an excellent presentation delineating the process of God in restoring one of the most fundamental principles in this season of God. The choices are between the restoration of fathers and sons, and a curse resting upon the geography (Malachi 4:5-6). The fact that some take upon themselves the title of ‘father’ does not make it so, because only God calls or names fathers. Earth is not authorized to do this (Ephesians 3:14-15). There are things that the Lord reserves for Himself and not for another. Though it is acceptable to recognize and call someone in the natural your father, yet the same does not apply in the spiritual. Only God bring someone into that relationship and completes the processing necessary to allow someone to be declared by Heaven as a father in the earth realm.
There is a clear purpose for the present emphasis in this season on fathering. God’s final objective does not end with the fathers. The earth is not waiting for the manifestation of fathers but for the manifestation of sons (Romans 8:19). The sons must come into the same relationship with “THE FATHER IN HEAVEN” as their fathers had, or the inheritance is lost. For example, the gains made by David in establishing the kingdom, were lost by Solomon, who did not understand fully what God desired to establish in the earth. Instead of a diminution of the glory, there must be a continuance, so that the God of Abraham becomes the God of Isaac and the God of Isaac becomes the God of Jacob. As fathers bring sons into a relationship with God, there is a continuation and increase of the purposes of God, rather than a new beginning in every successive generation. A father who builds a ministry around himself and aims for that which best promotes him does not have the revelation of the heart of God, and does not understand the spirit of Elijah.
Process of Transition – New eBook
Many pastors, evangelists, teachers and prophets, together with many who do not stand in the “fivefold”, claim themselves to be fathers and have named themselves as such. However, it would seem to me that in this season of God, it is primarily the apostolic office to which God has given the authority and privilege to be called fathers, even though every apostle is not necessarily a father.
Fathers are in a unique relationship with God and are privy to special revelation. Many teachers base their teachings and theology upon things such as the Mosaic pattern and tabernacle. The problem with this is that many of the basic principles extrapolated from the Mosaic pattern are not from the beginning. They are given in response to sin in the world and do not reflect the original creation of God. John in his epistle declares something significant about fathers: “I write to you, fathers, because you have known him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I write to you, dear children, because you have known the Father” – (1 John 2:13). Some know the Father; others have overcome the evil one. Genuine fathers stand out in this because they are brought into a relationship with the one who is from the beginning, and have a revelation of the one who is from the beginning. This is mandatory to the establishing of the foundation during the restoration currently taking place in the earth. It separates between the popular concepts of revival and the God-ordained plan for return to his original plan and purpose for earth. Fathers are given access to, and revelation of, the original plan and purposes of God, so that their building is not just based on the temporary but on the original and permanent.
The heart of this book is that it is now the season of God to transition from the well-established things of Passover and Pentecost. One season of God has ended and we have already entered into another season, the Cloud has moved from where it was to a new location that is beyond our past knowledge and experience. It is new territory that the majority of the people of God have neither experienced nor known of before. We like Joshua have not walked this road before. But beyond a mere revelation of the fact that there is something new that God is speaking, we need to know how to appropriate it in our lives. Many people still think that knowledge equals possession. Being able to speak of a thing is no indicator that we are walking in it or that we know how to appropriate it. The way to access this new dimension in God which is referred to as “THE LORD”, is through Fathering. Something is transmitted in the fathering relationship that is not imparted by any other means.
There is an impartation of a seed, a sperma that is incorruptible and eternal (1 Peter 1:23). It is for this reason that this is the message of the prophet at the close of the prophetic season and the initiation of the kingdom season (Malachi 4:5-6; Luke 16:16). This is the word for transition from the charismatic season of the CHRIST to the kingdom season of THE LORD.
Apostle Israel you are doing an excellent job of presenting fundamental kingdom principles to the people of God. There must be a voice crying out in the wilderness and turning the hearts of the people to the Lord. Keep up the good work.
