Heavenly Hugs Part 3
Spiritual Fathering VS Instruction: Luke 1:17
“He (Yeshua, Jesus the Messiah) will delight in the fear of the Lord. He will not judge by the sight of His eyes or decide by what He hears with His ears.” Isaiah 11:3
“He (John the Baptist) will also go before Him (Jesus, the Messiah Yeshua) in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” Luke 1:17 (then mix this with Church of Ephesus Unity in ch 2-5 for a real cross body REVIVAL WITHOUT DAMAGING DIVISIVE DOCTRINAL MIXTURE)
“The wisdom that comes from above is first of all pure, peaceable, easily entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, without hypocrisy.” James 3:17
“And above all things have fervent love among yourselves: for God’s love covers a multitude of sins. I Peter 4:8
SPIRITUAL APOSTOLIC COVERING FATHERING DOCTRINAL ENTHUSIASTS:
Stop. Wait, read NO further: simply review the above Scriptures and derive your own form of non controlling more perceiver Spiritual Authority Leader Doctrines
Big hint: see if any of the Bible verses above would enable accusation, suspicion, critical judging, dark witch spying or name calling? Big Selah.
Accusative Legalism prefers to WATCH and JUDGE…. but ALWAYS safely from far away.
It spies & speculates with other like minds, but doesn’t love enough, really respect enough to contact directly, to speak face to face.
Logically, based upon the previous Bible verses, one can note the fruits of positive, loving, leadership chief office “fathering, covering, authority” anointing which was embodied by the lifestyle and mature leadership, junior ministry training/mentoring and work planting apostolic sent messenger of the Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua, the long awaited Messiah.
By all accounts, Jesus Christ the Messiah, truly embodied the fullest quantity anointing of each 5 fold office pioneering ministry leader mantle. Apostle, true Prophet, Evangelist, Rabbi Teacher, Shepherd Pastor.
Yet Jesus had been born into the Jewish Levitical Patriarchal religious system. That same system of legalistic rules keeping and other people watching followed Jesus around as His senior pioneering leadership ministry began. And it was a constant threat to His natural earthly life but also to that of His fellow messengers, the organic 12 Apostle Work Planters. The religious spirit birthed from years of religious legalism, spawned self righteous “other watchers” who continually looked good from the outside, due to their wealth of knowledge on how to people please and perform.
Yet the Christ, who taught, healed and long endured, referred to them as “white washed sepulchres and a “brood of vipers” because He realized that apostolic faith was all that God required to please Him: with works accompanying it, as led by the Spirit.
Just as the Christ “went about doing God’ (Acts 10:38) when instructed to do so during times apart alone with His Father in the Garden of Gethsemane, so time and time again, the competitive, immature, shallow and very lost legalistic rules keepers tried to cause Him to stumble or be hindered.
Surely His spiritual gifting as a major Perceiver Seer’s seer could have caused Him to perceive the waves of accusation, distrust, big fear and negativity from those who continually monitored His every move.
Surely when His own disciples murmured and grumbled or experienced doubts about who Jesus really truly was, that Prophet Jesus would be bombarded with this by the deeply intuitive sensing, perceiving prophetic nature.
And even as a young boy, who’s prophetic time had not yet come, perhaps the strange situation surrounding His birth had caused His own beloved mother, Mary, to become suspected, gossiped about as a very possible “fornicating unwed mother” which then also would allow the adversary, the accuser, to attack Jesus’ saintly mind, emotions and perceptive compassionate soul, naming HIM “illegitimate.”
And all of this in the very small region of Jesus’ birth,where (from this writers first noted upon first hand travel to that surrounding region) rumors flew, gossip traveled far and wide.
And if Jesus had to grow up learning how to not become wounded, offended, bitter, angry, then so should we also, simply by following the same practices which the Savior might have learned to follow: retreating from the ministry, hub bub bub and chaos alone to the Psalm 91 Secret Place: the Garden of Gethsemane, where there, Our Savior could give voice to all the private heart pain, unanswered nagging questions and then seek comfort, supernatural wisdom, direction and power to go back out there once again.
To many times are tempted to become good at rules keeping, which can be similar to game playing, even self righteous, goody goody keeping up with the spiritual Joneses or attempting to rack up brownie points in life, work and ministry to “get” a big final pay off. Each of us have experienced this temptation or reality at point in time or another.(as this writer definitely has).
Yet Jesus kept pressing toward a higher eternal mark. One that would continually keep in mind pleasing the Father. And so surely the Savior carefully regarded what he allowed to remain inside His own heart.
Jesus knew the Heart of both a natural caring, loving earthly father, and also the Heavenly Hugs from times spent in the Garden together in prayer in the great sense of spiritual rest, peace and manifest supernatural presence and power of His heavenly Dad.
In stark contrast with the local religious Pharisees continually keeping watch on Jesus, collectively speculating that He was suspect, surely Jesus knew when He was being suspiciously watched (almost always from afar). Yet, the Lamb of God did not retaliate, create rumors to destroy any of their credibility. Neither did apostle prophet Jesus organize His 12 disciples to picket outside the big Temple and hurl vile epithets at the priests as the walked in to begin their work day.
No, Jesus realized He was a religious outsider, maybe from the get go, however, as the humble Lamb of God, the foretold Messiah, the writer feels sure that He truly embodied James 3:17 (see verse above)
And with all governmental, spiritual, Heavenly Father true real authority hovering just beneath the visible earthly man suit, the supreme governing power given to Jesus directly from His Father was the one that this writer and most every, even fastidious, conscientious reader, cannot manage to bridle: Our Savior had the supreme governmental power over his own speech. He could in James “bridle His tongue” with Holy Spirit “soul control” i.e. Self Control.
JESUS would continually refuse to enable the Accuser, not even against those who wanted to wipe Him off the face of the earth..and tried!
Evidence: Genesis 3: Sin of Eve: Deception, Sin of Adam: willful participation Sin of Adam: avoidance, blame shifting (enabling the accuser against his dearly beloved…due to attempt to shift blame to preserve himself to avoid paying a price for his sin. Both Eve and Adam each first opened wide their own mouths to give place to human leader sin.
And the writer submits that the first murder was due to the loss of self control between Cain and Able, and surely the jealous contention which eventually erupted in a big fight, began inside with jealousy, but got fanned into flames by Accusation from the lying devil to Cain toward his own brother, but then took it to the next level, by hurtling accusations to Able, then a total loss of personal self government (lost of self control /emotional soul control)
And this is how new wars begin nearly every day, both in countries, families and local churches. THE LOSS OF SELF GOVERNMENT, then ENABLING THE ACCUSER, THEN REACTION TO THE ACCUSATION, EVEN RETALIATION.
1. MAIN POINT:
Thus the writer purports that the very FIRST form of true spiritual governing real authority is Holy Spirit Self Control, (temperance, patience, meekness, humility, self control, etc) PERSONAL SELF GOVERNMENT (Galatians Fruits of the Spirit)
Ministry Application: Begin by training, equipping your own leaders, staff and lay persons, families, youth, children on the self governing principles of Godly Self Control “against which there is NO law.”
2. MAIN POINT: Each pioneering leader needs to train their own about deflecting, avoiding, blocking Accusation. The Accuser comes to lie, kill, destroy and steal: all Bible relationships, even with the human and the Father God. (more on this another time)
OCFC uses this verse to milk for all it’s worth in Anti Accuser Leader Ministry Equipping:
Please read this verse in context :
Revelation 12:11 “They over came HIM by the blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony and they loved not their life unto death.” KEY omitted word is HIM: the accuser of the brethren (so read v. 8- on also)
3. MAIN POINT:
Addressing pioneering, senior leader spiritual doctrine: Dig way deep with God’s insight and help, to inquire whether any of what YOU allow said through YOUR ministry pulpit, broadcast, writings or staff, ALLOWS the accuser to become enabled, be it through prejudice, stereotyping, apostolic fear, religious spirits of accusation, old husbands and wives /spiritual fathers spooky suspicious leader tales? The writer submits this to each reader in “placing the proverbial tennis ball now into YOUR court.”
AND please take heed regarding believing the wicked report, given an open ear to tale bearers, pastoral gossip, believing rumors.
NOTE the aforementioned leader Self Check Bible Verse: (about how our Messiah, Savior reacted in all situations)
Isaiah 11:3 and He (Yesua, Jesus the Messiah) will delight in the fear of the Lord. He will not judge by the sight of His eyes or decide by what He hears with His ears.” Isaiah 11:3
Note: Jesus 1) perceived the awesome Holy terror, fear of the Lord 2) He refused to accuse based on seeing even suspicious ‘appearing” big situations 3) Jesus surely heard just as many rumors,ministry gossip flying around the narrow cobblestone streets of his area, but He had REAL SELF CONTROl and a HOLY FEAR OF THE LORD..and made the big decision to NOT go by what even spilled into His own seerish, perceiver, Messiah hearing ears.
“He (John the Baptist) will also go before Him (Jesus, the Messiah Yeshua) in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” Luke 1:17
1. we do need that new wind from Heaven; with Elijah supernatural book of Acts saving, healing, delivering power. And the above scripture describes the Brand New Day (Era!) that the coming of John the Baptist would bring, which would prepare the Way for Jesus Christ the Messiah.
Please make note that the NEW SPIRITUAL FRESH WIND did have signs and wonder just like the prophet Elijah in the book of I Kings. HOWEVER, what many chief apostles fail to notice is that TRUE REVIVAL will have Elijah Signs and Wonders, but will have a release of the corporate cross organic Christian Body SPIRITUAL FATHERING LEADER COVERING ACCEPTING PURE ANOINTING which will “turn the fathers to the children.” The writer believes this can mean both healing, restoring, right aligned relationship between NATURAL but also SPIRITUAL, MINISTRY Generations.
And this writer, the OCFC head prophet, chief pioneering apostle servant leader, equipper ministry trainer has had God set her in place to prepare God’s leadership people for His Soon Appearing..but to also do it intergenerationally, cross denominationally and cross culturally, while at the same time DEACTIVATING accusative leaders spiritual covering dominating divisive, some times abusive, adulterous doctrines.
In this same verse: The Elijah new day with accompanying book of Acts, signs and wonders, ALONG with generational knitting of old and young generations in the natural but also in mature spiritual leadership, will generate a mature perspective in top pioneering leadership, which will then turn them on to going out from their own 4 hallowed walls to once again be out in the highways and hedges seeking those who may be won.
Last of all, due to their emotional and spiritual /ministry mantle purity and maturity and security in the cause, sake of the risen Christ, they will also share the common “awesome holy fear of the Lord” which will allow them to keep their eyes on the Goal of preparing God’s people for His Soon Imminent Return.
And this same “awesome holy fear of the Lord” will serve to assist them in fulfilling the ideal of Ephesians 4 True Organic Apostolic 5 fold, pastoral real covering, fathering authority.
NONE will have no difficulty in maintaining personal , pastoral “unity in meekness and lowliness” (Ephesians 4) or combining in ministry events of divinely guided cross body, cross cultural outreach, resource regional, local good works, which will then create that Cross Body Wide Chief Office Apostolic Governing, Covering and Sense of Security and Compassionate Firm Local Authority.
PS The entire Ephesians 4 chapter describes this..and starting with v. 11-12, it describes the healthy cross body corporate fruit which will help stop flakey winds of doctrine, swindling, childish immaturity and form a true healthy corporate Christian Community which is unified but has nothing missing, nothing lacking in the awesome Holy Fear of the Lord. (please take time to fully read)
“Submit one to another (meaning cross body, cross leader, cross leader, lay, cross generation, cross spouses, cross each and every one) IN the holy fear of the Lord’”
”The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.”Proverbs 13:11 (implies: THUS to not have the fear of the Lord brings WHAT??)
4. MAIN POINT: James 3:17 True Covering Authority Spiritual Leader Doctrines
When the voices in all of God’s ministry leaders, offices, lay persons, teachers, TV, media ALL truly embody, (meaning choose to yield to) James 3:17 Sr. Ministry, then the Organic True Bride of Christ will once more be much more easy to discern and perceive by the confused, media saturated, youth, nonchurch going groups (green , eco, far left) and if we remove all anti James 3:17 religious attack,hate speech, naming names of other leaders from the pulpit and refusing to be labeled “religious right” or “liberal left” then GOD will begin to woo, save and restore the breech once again.
Dusting off this old (needed) real repentance scripture: II Chronicles 7:14 “IF my people who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and heal their land.”
And it is RIGHT NOW THE TIME to do exactly what this scripture commands.

Leader Learning Curve:
Yes, one might be accused by the best of them, but never mind, remember Jesus who once lived in a small town with narrow religious made up suspicious legalistic minds, and yet He still didn’t grow hard, mentally too tough or mean spirited, bitter.
Instead He removed His eyes off all the religious performers, went away from the religious system to hold his meetings on the hillside. There the pure in heart, the hungry and the imperfect (halt, poor, possessed) would meet with him. And Jesus was never upset when the little children rubbed their grimy children’s hands on his holy cassock: as Jesus was compassionate, entreatable, relatable and not one bit a hypocritical plastic synthetic play minister phoney.
