An Exhortation from God the Father
Readers: While this word is directed specifically to the fathers, this message is not only for fathers, nor is it for men only. It is for all who are called by His name. In Christ there is no gender as we are all one inChrist. See Galatians 3:28
Do you know who you are, son? Man was created in My image and in My image you reflect My love or lack thereof. You are the very reflection of God Almighty on earth. When people look at you they see Me. When your children look at you they either see My love, grace, mercy, faithfulness and patience or they see your judgment, condemnation, perfectionism, apathy, and anger as a reflection of My character. Do not allow a bitter root to spring from you and defile many. (See Hebrews 12:15) The fruits of the flesh and the fruits of the Spirit are very apparent. (See Galatians 5:19-26) So what are you reflecting to your children and to those you mentor? What do you reflect to those who are subordinate to you? (See Ephesians 6:9) As an example, how do you speak of those who are superior to you in authority? (See 1 Tim 2:1-4; Titus 3:1, 2)
Many desire to know exactly what I have called them to do and where they are to be. The perfection of My plan will unfold moment by moment and day by day as you bend your will to Mine. Do not look to the right or to the left. Let not your hearts be troubled. Do what I have asked you to do and then we will move onto the next thing together. Do not despise the day of small beginnings. He who is faithful with little will be given much. (See John 14:1; Joshua 1:7; Zech 4:10, Luke 16:10)
Right now I want you to listen to what I tell you. You have heard that before the terrible Day of the Lord I sent the prophet Elijah. My Son Jesus made it clear that John the Baptist came in the spirit of Elijah to restore all things, and yet John clearly did not know who he was. The angel told his father, Zechariah, but John did not understand the depth of his calling. (See Matt 17:12, 13 and John 1:21) He did not know he was the Elijah to come and restore all things. (See Luke 1:11-17)
Now I ask you: Do you know who you are? What was and what is the purpose of Elijah's coming? Yes, he destroyed the false prophets of BAAL, but what was it he was to restore? What do I desire to be restored now? Does not My word tell you? Does not My word make it plain? The Old Testament ends with this strategic information and the New Testament in the Gospel of Luke begins with it. So can you not see for yourself how plain I have made it?
Malachi 4:5, 6 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. KJV
Malachi 4:5, 6 Lo, I will send you the prophetElijah before the great and terrible day of the LORD comes. He will turn the hearts of parents to their children and the hearts of children to their parents, so that I will not come and strike the land with a curse. NRSV
Luke 1: 17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, 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. KJV
Luke 1: 17 With the spirit and power of Elijah he will go before him, to turn the hearts of parents to their children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord." NRSV
Many of you believe you are ready for My coming, but you are not ready. The hearts of the fathers MUST return to the sons. The hearts of the parents must return to the children. In the days to come My promptings will become very pointed and exacting. A breaking is coming! The fathers are the ones closest to My reflection on earth and I am soon putting My foot down. Those who are repentant will see great breakthroughs in every area of their life, but those who are not will suffer great judgment from My hand.
The fathers must heed and obey. This will require them to humble themselves under My mighty right hand, but those who obey will be lifted to new heights that will astonish even the best of them.
What are at stake are financial blessings, healings and miracles, salvations and wholeness, and more than the mind can conceive.
Many have cried out to Me for healing and financial breakthrough, but what they do not see are their relationship with their families are first on My list. Warn the men, Judy, that because they are a reflection of My glory on earth, it is time to align their will to Mine. The hour is late! It is much later than most believe. Let it be done on earth as it is in heaven.
I Am praying for the fathers. I Am praying for the parents. I Am praying for you. Reflect Me well. Be who I called you to be - representatives of My love on earth. May it be done on earth as it is in heaven. Selah
