The Spiritual House of The Ancient Father
The House of God is a Family
The "Oikosnomos" of the House of God
When the direction of a Nation is altered, it is because the Father has found righteous men(Sons of God) in that nation that are prepared to lay down their lives and to take on His purposes . It is incumbent therefore on the Sons of God in that nation to reflect back spiritual light (the heart condition) that is pleasing in the eye of the heavens by giving credence and priority to this act of mercy and love by apostolic and prophetic decrees. Coming into agreement with the heavens is not a verbal confession or loud shouting of Christian terminology and verbiage; it is rather a perpendicular posturing of the spirit of the Household of God on the earth co-ordinating like in mirror reflection, the issues that are pertinent on the heart of the Father for that Nation. We are witnessing a massive shift in the direction of ancient spiritual truths being unveiled as the Holy Spirit is set in the pursuit of turning the hearts of the fathers to the sons, and the hearts of the sons to their fathers.
Three years ago there was a prophetic sound in the heavens over South Africa, a call to repentance to the present Church from the culture of the orphan to the culture of the sons in the Kingdom and the introduction of the model of spiritual fathers and spiritual sons. Some of the seed fell on good ground and produced a First Fruit Company of the Sons of God representing the House of God their Father which required a radical shift and a change of culture. Those seeds have germinated and has now become the ladder or the wormhole by which Angels are ascending and descending with the Broken Seals of purpose for the earth. This is our finest moment to be both alive in the spirit of sonship and dead to your soul of the orphan. The culture of heaven is fast becoming the culture of the earth by virtue of the fact that the Trinity in the heavens, the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit has found an accurate model of the Trinity in the earth, spiritual Fathers, spiritual sons and the Holy Spirit. It is an exact representation in culture and theology. The prayers of our Great High Priest and Brother, Jesus Christ, “Father make them one as we are one, so that the world may know that you sent Me”, is our present reality.
We are in the season of the removing of the veil of the souls and activating and entering the Most Holy Place, our spirits, this union of spirit to spirit is facilitating true fellowship like that which was once know by the first pre-fall son of God, Adam and perfected by the last Adam, Christ Jesus. The culmination of this period will produce a passion in the leading of the sons of God for the restoration of the lost sons of God to their rightful inheritance. The miraculous will punctuate their existence and their complete physical wellbeing will be the mark of their authenticity, they will overcome sickness and disease, personally in their own bodies and freely offer that as bread to the spiritual children they watch over and raise into mature sons. Another genetic trait of their apostolic authenticity, is that they will not require monetary compensation whatsoever from those whom they serve as sons, (see 1 Corinthians 9). Their physical well being & financial abundance will be as a result of the “Sabbath Rest” that they have entered and have ceased from their labours to provide for themselves and protect themselves, living completely from the Throne of Heaven their Father, whatever they need the House suppliers.
The sons of God will bring their souls under complete subjection to the Spirit; this will produce the greatest inventions the earth has yet to see, in the areas of the arts, music and technology. There will be an activation of all of Creation to facilitate and join the sons of God for the purposes of the Father. Creation will once again bow down to the rightful “Rulers of the heavens and the earth” by obedience to the decree of “Rest and Peace” by the sons of God. This decree will replenish the earth’s resources and restore the damage done by human nations of the earth. If God the Father is in “Rest” and the sons of God are in “Rest” then the earth must also come under the same order of “Rest”. It will only do so under the command of the “REST OF US”. You can only command the storm to peace when you yourself are able to fall sound asleep in the midst of the storm.
This will also reflect light into the second heavens, the realm where Satan’s domain operates and functions. The Kingdom of God is advancing and this will force him out of the second heavens, and his only direction will be to descend to the earth. He knows that his time is short and will attempt to change the set times of the Father by attempting to deceive even the very elect of God. Satan is presently in preparation of his World that he now has rule over to accommodate his arrival. He will come mascarading as an Alien Race from a distant planet that has been observing our existence for millennia and will have the solution for all of Planets Earths social and political problems. There will be a push and a pull to Satan’s coming. By this I mean that, as the Kingdom of God continues to descend more fully to the earth, the Kingdom of Gods Angelic Hosts, Michael, will drive him out of the second heaven but also there will be a cry from the inhabitants of the earth for a supernatural being to solve their problems because they would have come to the end of themselves. By the way, a survey done in the USA has revealed a statistic that has shown that 68 % of Christians believe in Alien beings other than man, shocking isn’t it? This is what will signal his descend. Now please note that his intention is to kill, steal and destroy every human being on the planet and by so doing he will prevent orphans becoming sons, because that is his only motivation for his existence. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth in that day.
The sons of God are re-presenting the truth declared by Jesus Christ when he came to the earth 2000 years ago, which is, “I have come to show you the Father”. When Adam sinned not only did he loose his Father but he also lost his wife and later on, his sons introduced genocide into the world, the magnitude of the fall affected the entire human order. Saints, we have not come to fully understand what was lost at the fall. The restoration of the turning of the hearts of the Father back to the sons and the hearts of the sons back to the Father preceded His return 400 years earlier, by the Prophet Malachi. The forerunner or the herald of which will be the Spirit of Elijah, now if you will believe, John the Baptist is Elijah to come preparing the way for the double portion Son or the first begotten Son, Christ Jesus. All spiritual sons are begotten one at a time. The culture of the Kingdom has no taint of church culture whatsoever, it is a Family in the heaven and the earth, not an institution characterised by regimented military order, or corporate in its design, polarised by a Chief CEO (Apostle) and his immediate Board of Directors thereafter all the “worker bees”. The Family of God is defined by unconditional love and self sacrificial brotherly relationships between fathers and sons. From here on we recognise nobody by the flesh, for there is neither, male nor female, neither Jew nor Gentile, neither bond nor free, for we are all spiritual sons of the Father of our Spirits who appoints to us spiritual fathers to watch over our souls and to give account to Him at the end.
Something so significant and vitally important happened at the ascension of Christ that we have overlooked but the Book of Revelation Chapter 5:13 recaptures this picture, it got to do with the principle of resurrection and immortality. The scene is set in the preceding verses of chapter 5. I will paraphrase, God the Father has been receiving accolades and praise from the 24 elders and the living creatures that surround the Throne, and then a Scroll is presented with seven seals and no one “Worthy” was found to open the scrolls and read its contents. John begins to weep bitterly until an Angel comforts him and says, “Behold the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Root of David has prevailed to open the scroll and loose its seven seals”. John turns to behold the innocent Lamb slain, the Son, having all authority (seven horns) and all power (seven spirits of God the Father). Why? Because, He was killed and was resurrected. This is what will make all the sons worthy, death to the world and your soul and resurrection to the life in the Spirit. That is why the Bride is the Lamb’s wife who must be slain too. The Son approached the Father and takes the scroll from His right hand and the 24 elders and the living creatures fall before the Lamb and begin to sing a new song, “You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain and have redeemed us to God by your blood, out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us kings and priests to our God, and we shall reign on the earth”. Then everywhere in heaven there were ten thousands upon ten thousands of Angels saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is Lamb who was slain, to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing”. Then verse 13 is critical while these things are happening in the heavens, something equal in adoration is happening on the earth. Every creature which is in heaven(fallen angels and holy Angels)and on the earth, under the earth, and such that are in all that are in them began saying; “Blessing, honor and glory and power, be to Him who sits on the Throne(Father) and unto the Lamb(Son)forever and ever, Amen. Those that can share in this “Worthiness” are delegated sons that have died to themselves and have been resurrected by the Spirit, everything is subjected to the one who sends you, The Worthy Lamb, sends you with His authority and power and in this capacity you are an Ambassador of the King Himself, everything in heaven and on the earth is subjected to you by Royal Decree. Amen.
Jesus Christ said, “Watch and pray”, not, “bow your heads and close your eyes and pray”, because there will be signs in the heavens and sign in the earth that will indicate that the end is near. My prayer for all the Saints is that we seek the Father’s House while He may be found. Today if you hear His voice, harden not your hearts. The House of God is making a bold and loud statement; he that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Churches. May the love of the Father displayed in us His sons be evidence enough to convince the world that what we speak of bears the truth expressed by the displaying of His nature and character, to such a degree that you come back home to your Father and His Household, the spirits of righteous men made perfect, Mt Zion, the City of God. Yes, yes,yes.
So when the Father is looking at a nation, say, South Africa, He is actually looking for His Spiritual House in that nation, His spiritual sons that make up His Spiritual House in that Nation. He is not looking at the natural or the religious Christian South African, get that. For the simple reason that His purposes are fundamentally on the hearts and minds of His Household, these only want to do the will of the their Father ,their entire purpose for living and breathing is to facilitate the mind of God for the earth, they have no other agenda. Jesus Christ said it like this, “My food is to do the will of the Father and to finish the task”. For most Christians their understanding concerning the House of God has been changed from it being a building, to, we are the Temple of God, the Godhead dwells in us. This is good but it is not complete, there is more to the understanding the House of God.
Let’s begin with what God was creating when he created Adam. Luke 3:37-38 records the genealogy of Jesus Christ, and concludes that, Adam was the son of God. So we see that God was creating sons, not just man. Why was God creating sons? Well that’s what you do when you want to extend the sphere of your Kingdom and rule as a King in new territories. When God put His son on the earth and gave him the dominion to rule over everything, and to tend the Garden, he was not instructing Adam to be the Chief Royal Gardener of Eden. I always thought that is what he was supposed to do, dig around the beds, rack up the leaves, discard the fallen rotting fruit, cut the grass and the overhanging trees, because if he did not do that, the Garden would grow wild and out of control. I thought of it in terms of work and labour because he needed to earn his keep so to speak, you see that is how the orphan thinks. But this is far from the truth for the purpose of a Kings son.
History has given us ample examples of this Royal Culture as a type and shadow. The House of Castile and Aragón was the Royal House of the King and Queen of Spain, Ferdinand and Isabella. The House was not the Castle they lived in. When they wanted to find a new trade route to the east they commission a man by the name of Christopher Columbus to go on an expedition fully fund by the Royal Treasury, to seek out new frontiers and explore new lands by sailing beyond the “Pillar of Hercules”. Remember the common understanding then was that the earth was flat and if you sailed to certain point in the earth you would simply fall off, that point of no return was called the Pillars of Hercules. Columbus discovered South America, North America and of course the Caribbean Islands. Spain was fast gaining territory in these foreign nations, and all of that was known has the Spanish Conquistadores. The Spanish conquered the Inca’s, the Mayans and the Aztecs Civilizations and today what we now know has Brazil, Mexico, Latin America and some of the Caribbean Islands are Spanish or Portuguese speaking.
Now that the new country was conquered by the Military force, the House of Castile and Aragón would deploy Government Officers, Legal Practitioners, Civil Engineers, Doctors, Blacksmiths, Bakers, Farmers, entrepreneurs, basically all those that wanted to find a new life in this new world, they would arrive on the shores of this new found Spain to set up the infrastructure and build a society and a civilisation. They were there to work the land and provide employment, set up the laws, establish a trade infrastructure and agreements for the Kingdom of Spain for the export of the raw materials found in that country. The Spanish term used for all of these people are Hidalgos. At some point when all of the Infrastructure is in place the House of Castile and Aragon would send a Viceroy, the Viceroy was usually the son or daughter of the King or an esteem family member, this Viceroy came in the place of the King himself, but came as the King, when you were standing in front of the Viceroy you were standing in front of the King. This Viceroy had all the power and authority given to him by the King himself to fully represent and function in this foreign land, what he spoke became law of the land. This Viceroy’s primary function was to bring the Culture of Spanish King and Queen to this new country. He was not there to find employment all his needs for, shelter, food, protection was attended to by the Royal Crown, he was there to establish the culture of the House of Castile and Aragon.
The House God is the most Ancient Royal Spiritual Family, made up of sons that function as Viceroys not Hidalgos, Kings and Priests. So when God the Father was creating Adam his first son, his intension was for the son to represent the culture of heaven here on earth. Adam was never to be concerned about his provision and protection. Adam was a Spirit and in that state of identity, he was just like his Father, because God is Spirit, he was in His image and likeness. I have dealt with the consequences of the fall of Adam in the “Culture of the Orphan” and will not do so here too. I would prefer to unwrap a fresh understanding of the Ancient Father’s House.
Ephesians 3:14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named.
Let’s begin again by understanding the term “House”. When we say that Gods House is a family, we mean that the family members constitute the House. For example, I am the head of my biological Household or family in the natural, we live in a building on 1b St Helier Road, 4 Chestnut Grove, Gillitts, Durban, South Africa. Please note that the building is not the House. My headquarters is the main bedroom in that building, that is where the head (that being myself), quarters or operates from. Those of my Household are my immediate family, Jennifer and the four children Kei’lah, Coral, Reign and Cassidy. WE ARE THE HOUSE.
Isaiah 2:1-4 NKJV
1 This is what Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem:
2 In the last days the mountain of the LORD's House will be established
as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills,
and all nations will stream to it. 3 Many peoples will come and say,
"Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the House of the God of Jacob.
He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths."The law will go out from Zion,
the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 4 He will judge between the nations
and will settle disputes for many peoples.
The text above when read with this new understanding presents an absolute new perspective of the use of the word “House”. You see in the Old Testament the word Temple represented the headquarters of the God, the place where God dwells, but the “House” was known as the Family of God. David prayed that he would dwell in the House of the Lord forever. Today we are teaching on the Kingdom, understanding how the Kingdom would function in your life if you would seek it first and righteousness of the King. It was said of Abraham that because he believed it was accounted to him as righteousness. The Righteousness of the King is when you believe by faith in your identity that you are son of the most Ancient Father and belong to His Household and that you are a Viceroy sent to this planet to put on display the nature and the character of your heavenly Father. Jesus Christ the last Adam came with the same mission to show us the Father and showed us to never worry about what we will eat, drink and wherewithal you would clothe yourself because these things the heathens or the Hidalgos concern themselves with, but not you.
This brings us to whole other level of sonship life, life without toil and sweat, or working to provide for yourself and protecting yourself. This culture is the culture of heaven and the culture of the Kingdom here and now. Now how do we go about transitioning to this new understanding? It would require a Spiritual Father that himself had gone through this process, to guide and show you the Father, because as an orphan you have no context whatsoever concerning this new life, you would never be able to recognise it, even it came kicked you in the teeth. It’s a whole new paradigm of spiritual life that is fully functional in the natural life, because God the Father gives us everything pertaining to Life and Godliness. Jesus Christ is the prime example of a Son who walked fully under this culture and He said that He would not leave us as orphans but that He would give us the Holy Spirit (John 16, 17). I will continue to expand these issues on another day. Remain resolute in pursuing the truth.
Grace, Peace, Love & Mercy
