FROM THE WHITE HOUSE TO THE CHURCH HOUSE, FATHERS ARE RISING UP

(Photo by Patrick Smith/Getty Images)

 

Many believers are heralding and celebrating the emergence of sons and daughters of the kingdom who are finding their identity and purpose in this season. It is time we also recognize the spiritual fathers and mothers that are coming alongside these young pioneers in this multi-generational move of God. The Lord is using this time to not only rebuild some time-tested foundational truths, but to restore a breach of broken trust with spiritual authority figures.

And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to dwell in (Isaiah 58:12 ESV).

Due to years of dysfunctional leadership within segments of the church and immature responses to conflict, the body of Christ is undergoing a spiritual makeover. Many who were previously wounded by those in positions of spiritual authority are now being given an opportunity to find healing and restoration within the family of God. Where “spiritual authority” has often been a negative term for those who have felt disenfranchised, abandoned, or even controlled, the Lord is now repairing this breach of trust. The Father’s heart regarding healthy authority figures and the role of spiritual moms and dads is coming to the forefront, not only throughout the body of Christ, but even within the highest office in the land.

Scriptures are clear about the place and purpose of healthy spiritual fathers and mothers (2 Kings 2:12, 1 Corinthians 4:15, 1 Thessalonians 2:11, 1 John 2:13-14). God’s plan has always been for the body of Christ to be an inter-generational demonstration of an eternal kingdom that is always increasing and expanding, building upon previous lessons and victories (Psalm 112:1-3).

Even as many five-fold ministers are being raised up to equip the saints, these office-holders will only be as effective as the spiritual fathers and mothers in the local houses of worship. The foundational roles of apostle and prophet (Ephesians 2:20) will be the most potent and fruitful when these servants lead with the heart of a father and mother who nurture the family for the long haul. It is in this season that God’s grace is upon those who have been called to establish a strong and secure household of faith (1 Peter 2:5). It is upon this solid foundation that the coming move of the Holy Spirit will be poured out and properly stewarded for lasting impact.

For those with eyes to see, we can see heaven’s priority in this even within our national leadership in the White House. Whatever many may think about our current president, he bears the fruit of a faithful father. His commitment to his own children and their testimonies of the mutual love and affection for one another, are powerful indicators of this reality in his life. For those who question his success or seeming favor in this season, I believe a key component is due to his heart and perspective as a father.

I believe God is speaking to this “fatherless generation.” He is telling us that Dad is back in the house, putting things in order for the sake of His kids. It is not to control, manipulate, or coerce, but to lovingly support, undergird, and empower the next generation to be all they were destined to be.

The Lord is addressing the lie that spiritual authority can’t be trusted. He is giving believers more insight into inner healing and deliverance from this stronghold so that the Body can be a place of healing and restoration. Once healed and properly functioning within a healthy household of faith, these same sons and daughters will reach our orphaned culture with an overflow of the Father’s grace that will be marked by extreme love and supernatural power.

Fathers and mothers are rising up in this hour to come alongside the firebrands, pioneers, and five-fold ministers in order to secure our inheritance in the land. Let us partner with heaven by doing our part in seeing this reality come to pass:

  1. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any negative reaction against spiritual authority to find God’s truth and healing grace (Hebrews 12:15).
  2. Pray for those in positions of spiritual authority to be healthy in soul, mind, and spirit so they can lead from the heart of the Father (1 Thessalonians 5:23).
  3. Pray for the sons and daughters to embrace the generational blessing of those who have gone before in order to build upon the foundations already laid (Deuteronomy 4:40).
  4. Pray that the world would see a healthy household of faith rise up to bring healing and restoration to a broken and fatherless culture (Isaiah 61:4-7).

  1. Father GOD,
    Thank You so much for Your faithfulness and Your desire to return for a Bride who is without spot nor wrinkle. Thank You for watching over Your children with such care and for providing role models who not only display tenderness and compassion in their protection of their families, but who also are courageous in setting boundaries and clear standards and expectations that are applied equally to all. We continue to ask that all of us who depend upon the media for information would have those resources that are honest in providing unbiased, untainted reports and that all information would be disseminated with clarity and integrity. We continue to call back the fathers into their roles as heads over their wives to give direction, provide discernment and shield their families from death and destruction. We also continue to call forth healing in families so that each unit experiences the fulfillment that comes from unity. We see the out-working of mutual love, respect and cohesiveness in Your triune relationship and desire to emulate that same type of accord among all body-of-Christ members, to bring love to those living in darkness and glory to You, our KING. In the Name of Your holy SON JESUS we pray. Amen.

  2. Pray :: First you must understand authority before you rise & what the real church looks like, since God Almighty never changes, and doesn’t take back callings to the church, then apostles doing mighty miracles were called to officiate the church, not a man made position call pastor, a pastor is not equipped to run a church: 2 Cor 12:12

    12 Indeed, the signs that indicate a [genuine] apostle were performed among you fully and most patiently in miracles and wonders and mighty works.
    AMP

    1 Cor 12:28

    28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, (divers) kinds of tongues.
    ASV

    1. I appreciated your reply. You are so right about the pastor not equipped to “run the church” but to equip the saints with the Word of God.

      1. the word of God is Jesus: John 1:1-2
        1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
        2 The same was in the beginning with God. ASV

        Jesus has life not a book: John 5:39-40

        39 Ye search the scriptures, because ye think that in them ye have eternal life; and these are they which bear witness of me;
        40 and ye will not come to me, that ye may have life. ASV

    1. I so appreciate your comments about fathers and the next awakening being centered on fathers and children consider Malachi 4:5,6 (NET)
      Look, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and terrible day of the LORD arrives.
      v-6
      He will encourage fathers and their children to return to me, so that I will not come and strike the earth with judgment.”
      Further support of our next revival being about Father God
