Son the House

Son the House – I

4 weeks ago we started on the Maturation of Sons. We learned that there was process to becoming a son (mature believer).  Highlight within this teaching I believe that you as the reader can clearly identify where you are in the process, and also understand “the what’s next”, for you in your walk as a Believer.

I shared before that it is my core belief that we can preach about the kingdom and its concepts, but lack the work ethic, and necessary tools to “actually” exhibit the Kingdom to a culture that is looking for Christ and not man’s religion.  Religiously we know how to talk about the Kingdom, but have not been able to demonstrate the kingdom of God in our everyday scopes of life. This creates unrest in the mind of the believer, because conceptually we grasp it, but organically we don’t link to it.

The Lord highlighted to me that the success of any work is hinged on the Son. With this in mind, the raising of sons to build upon and expand the work, becomes the blueprint to all success in raising successors, sending out the equipped to make peace at the Gates of our enemies.

Psalms 127

A Song of degrees for Solomon. Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

Build in this Hebrew translation means to “establish, cause to continue, and obtain children”

This is critical to Kingdom increase, expansion, and development. When Our Father wanted to increase, expand, and develop Kingdom in the earth He raised up and sent His Son. Why? Because except the Lord Build (establish, cause to continue, obtain children), the house, then the work/labour is in vain. Whenever the Lord solves an issue or problem, He raises up a son and sends Him. Please note that “Build & House” both have their root Hebrew meaning from “Son”, which is a Builder of the family. Not only does it mean the “builder of the family”, but also a Son is a “repairer” of Nations, Corporations, and Cultures.

Now there is a process of becoming a son. One is not “born” a son in this regard. But through belief and experience do we become sons.

 

John 1:12

 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

That “Become”, is a process; In essence “to come into being”. We are raised up as sons. We “grow” into it.

 Act 3:26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

 

Luk 1:80 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.

 

Exo 2:10 And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.

 

 

We are born as a child/children, but “Given” as a son…

 

Isa 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

 

See that? Now this is talking about the birth of Jesus. A child is born, unto us a “son” is given.

A son is given (appointed, ascribed, and assigned)

 

Please note the consistency of this maturation. How even with Father Abraham, how he made

Great feast after the child was weaned.

 

Gen 21:8 And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned.

Again please note the consistency of this maturation. The child (something born), grew, and was weaned.

There is a time of nursing; which in the natural consists of intimacy and being close to the mother breasts. Spiritually speaking it is a time of building Hope (trust, reliance, and confidence in the Lord)

Psa 22:9 But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts.

 But then there is a time of weaning. It is this moment in which the child is uncovered from the mothers nursing blanket, and presented to the Father for further instruction into maturity.

The process of weaning in the maturation of sons I likened unto desert.  I found many similarities to this Weaning process in the maturing of us as sons/mature believers. The desert/weaning time is time of preparation for my releasing of the kingdom ministry in to the world.

Luk 1:80 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.

Shewing means exhibition; to offer or present for inspection. It also means to display or “manifest publicly”

 

Let’s declare this together, “Somebody is waiting on me…”

When I worked at General Motors I was privy to understand the processes of maturing the vehicle. Each vehicle went through a series of testing. The testing wasn’t conducted to destroy the vehicle, but instead to “prove” the authenticity and durability of where the vehicle was going to be “sent” to. Same with Sons.

 

The Weaning/desert process is created to prepare us for “public exhibition”. Remember in Luke 1:80 that John the Baptist was kept in the deserts until the day of his shewing (exhibition).

 

The desert, like weaning process offers us the moment of learning the Voice of God, and overcoming areas of weakness.

Moses was in the desert for 40 years. Not only that, but Moses spent the greater part of his ministry in the desert, as he spent an additional 40 years in preparing the children of Israel to enter into the Promise Land under the leadership of Joshua.

 

Jesus was in the desert/wilderness for 40 days. (Luke 4:1)

 

Paul the Apostle was in the desert of Arabia & Damascus for about 3 years after his conversion.  (Galations 1: 17,18)

 

It is in the desert that we learn the Voice of God. Note how the children of Israel were in the desert for 40 years.

 

Like weaning, so it is with desert, after the teachings understood here, then there is a releasing or “revealing” to the world, of what God has been working with in us.

 

Romans 8:19 declares that all Creation is waiting for the “manifestation” of the sons of God.

 

Manifestation in the greek is made primarily of two words:

apokalupsis

ap-ok-al’-oop-sis

From G601; disclosure: – appearing, coming, lighten, be revealed, revelation. This is where we get the word

An apocalypse (Ancient Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apocálypsis, from ἀπό and καλύπτω meaning ‘un-covering’), translated literally from Greek, is a disclosure of knowledge, i.e., a lifting of the veil or revelation,

But the root meaning of the word is

apokaluptō

ap-ok-al-oop’-to

From G575 and G2572; to take off the cover, that is, disclose: – reveal.

 

In essence all creation is waiting for us to “come from up under the nursing blanket of our mothers”. All creation is waiting for us (sons) to come from up under what has been hiding or concealing our identity. Just like when a nursing mother takes away the sheet that is being used to cover the baby. Once the Cover is removed, then identity is recognized.

 

Let’s declare this together, “My identity is fully recognized when the cover is removed”

So the next question is “What is covering me? What is trying to conceal my identity?”

 

Now there is a covering that comes from the Lord. This is “not” what I am talking about.

Now there is a covering that we ought to give one another in love; as Noah’s sons covered him.

That is not what I am speaking of either.

This covering is “something” that keeps my identity concealed or hidden.

Who am I when the cover is removed???

 

Well where does this covering come from?

 

Isa 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

Isa 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne  (covering) above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

Isa 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

 

Note how the enemy, Lucifer said in his heart that he would “exalt or lift” his throne (which is covering in the Hebrew) above the stars of God. Now we all know that these stars aren’t talking about Neptune, Saturn, or Mars.

 

Who are these stars? Le Bailey? Erick White? Dominique Prince? Shannon Halbedel? The enemy has said in his heart that he would put a covering over us, in order to cripple our ability to shine. Stars get their brilliance from a greater light, the Sun. Stars reflect light.

You get your light/brilliance from a greater Light, the Son. It is the enemy assignment to hinder the ability to receive that light. In doing this, not only do we not receive something from the Father of Lights, but also something goes dark in where I am called to usher brilliance into.

 

This is the time of unveiling of the sons. This is the time of removal of the cover.  Whatever that cover may be. Amen?
