The Double Portion

“But he shall acknowledge the son of the….firstborn, by giving him a double portion of all that he hath: for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his” – (Deuteronomy 21:17). After ministering on this line in San Luis (Mexico) at a conference, my spiritual father, John M. Boney shared some important nuggets with me which are very essential in the apostolic ministry of spiritual fathering and sonship, but are lacking within the circle […]

Spiritual Fathers and Sons

A successful transition in the present restoration of God is greatly determined by the measure of our relationship with an apostolic family that God places us in. An apostolic family is orchestrated by God as a means to create spiritual stability and systematic growth in the things that God is doing in this season and the present truths being revealed and declared.

Beyond the benefits of the father-son relationship, […]

“A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation. God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land” – (Psalm 68:5-6). The choice of a family we belong to is never made by us. God is the one who sets the orphan into a family by His divine providence. The error many have come to make is the […]

Characteristics & Benefits of the Father Son Relationship

A true spiritual father is characterized by a unique relationship with God. We cannot become a spiritual father by our own decision or effort. No man can make himself a father, except God declares him one because fatherhood is God’s initiative. In the Kingdom of God, fatherhood is determined neither by age nor by years in ministry but by the measure of grace and revelation released. Younger spiritual men with a unique relationship with God might disciple and father those […]
