It’s amazing how that people are so quick to point out who their spiritual father is yet you don’t find in them any resemblance between them and those they call their spiritual Father.
A dog does not need a rehearsal or motivational speech or initiation to look like a dog, a dog must resemble a dog whether it likes it or not. It is important that we note that no matter how we try to be lenient about this matter any man that cannot reproduce what his father is has produced or even reflect His results is not worthy to be called a son.
Note that the essence of this is not to mock you but to push you into deliberate pursuit,just incase you’ve been sleeping or feet-dragging,it’s time for you to increase and grow…
These keys below have been tested and found viable in making this possible:
1. Be followers of your father. (1 Corinthians 4:15&16)
Every son should be a number one fan and follower of his father, whatever you see him do as it regards life and the kingdom,do it.
Learn both by observation and emulation.
In 2 kings 2:1-6 Elisha followed Elijah every where he went. And we see the result in 2 kings 2:7-14&15 Elisha parted the river Jordan exactly as it was done by his father Elijah. you can’t stand from afar like the other sons of the prophet and expect to be like Elijah,and produce the result he produced, it’s impossible.
When Jesus called His disciples the word He used was “Follow me and I will make you”, only those who follow are made! don’t just follow also but follow with focus and be complacent in Your discipleship, Your father is the physical earthly representation of the Jesus you pray to.
2. Don’t just follow,But learn to follow in obedience. (John 2:1-d end)
Mary spoke to the servants, she said “whatsoever He tells you to do,do it” Jesus also speaking in John 10:37- “if I do not the works of my Father,believe me not.”
If you must be a high flyer you must obey instructions. Only willing and obedient people eat the good of the land ( Isa.1.19 – If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land), so learn
(Heb 5:8) even Jesus by what he suffered had to learn obedience, obedience to instructions is one of the cheapest things to do to guarantee a change of level. Not partial obedience or obedience in grumbling but complete obedience..
3. Be bold to identify and be identified with your father.
There are people who are not proud to publicly declare that somebody is their father and that is terrible. People who are ashamed to identify with their biological parents because they are poor, such people are under a curse,talk more of your spiritual parents.
A lion that doesn’t want to be identified as a lion will one day eventually become a goat or a chicken on four legs; And also note that you can’t carry the grace of someone you are ashamed of. (Luke.9.26 – For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels)
Many like to present a popular Man of God as their father because of the paparazzi of it. Stop deceiving yourself.
4. Sow to your father,tithe to your father
Sowing and tithing to your father is one potent representation of honour,appreciation and a drive to connect to the grace at work in His life.
Sowing to your father is one way of harvesting and coveting the grace of God in his life into your own life. Genesis 27:1-4 Isaac required a seed so that he will eat and bless Esau of which Jacob supplanted.
Gen 14- Abraham brought a tithe to Melchizedek and was blessed for it.
Gal.6.6 – Let him who receives instruction in the Word [of God] share all good things with his teacher [contributing to his support].
5. Pray for your father/spiritual parents
Sowing to a father is not in finance alone, one of the greatest gift you can give to your father is praying for him from your heart–because they also have needs, they invest in you all the time in their time,energy ,wisdom,prayers etc. it’s wisdom to also pray for them.
Also when you take time to pray and interceed for people the Lord personally handles your own case..
Job.42.10 – And the Lord turned the captivity of Job and restored his fortunes, when he prayed for his friends; also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.
6. Personalise him.
Until you personalise your father you may never allocate the adequate honour to him. Get to that point where his not our father, but My father, sent to and for me, regardless of other sons and daughters he may have I will be His best,I will take care of him, I will always make him happy,I’ll be there when He needs me.
Jesus will always say “I and my father are one” He personalised God. so personalise your father he is your own. There’s no collectivity in responsibilities
7. Go for the ultimate mantle.
There are people who come around a man because of money,fame, popularity etc. Some follow for years yet at the end of their pursuit they can’t reproduce what that man carried.
When Elisha ploughed his oxen Elijah came and trew a mantle on him and took it back- that was the first mantle, but that was not the ultimate mantle it took Elisha to meticulously serve and follow Elijah in loyalty that the ultimate mantle (the spirit of Elijah) came on him-that even the other sons of the prophet testified that _”the spirit of Elijah doths rest on Elisha”_ not _”the cloth of Elijah”_ so when you follow a man go for the ultimate mantle(the spirit of that man), when you have that it’s extremely easy to reproduce what he carries and even double.
8. Don’t get familiar with Him
Never trivialize a grace that it no longer means anything to you again, that you’re close to a man is never a yard stick that you’re connected or receiving from that man. Don’t get familiar with his presence,don’t get familiar with his prayers, don’t get familiar with words he speaks over you, don’t get familiar with the instructions he gives to you.– one of the factors that sponsors Dishonour is over-familiarity, and dishonour is a silent killer in the Kingdom, when you’re too familiar with a grace it can’t work or speak for you no matter your gymnastics.
9. Believe in your father(prophet)
John.14.11 – Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.
2Chr.20.20b – Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.
Many persons are too close to their father’s that even when he prays they hardly believe it they take it casually, you feel it’s not anointed enough to meet your request, there’s a level of believe you have for your father that even when he blesses you jokingly,it comes to pass. Has your father spoken any word to you.? Hold it strong and believe it. Your prosperity is in your believing your prophets word over your finances.
10. Honor Him
Honour is a sure spiritual language in this kingdom, honour attracts honour, it attracts favour, it’s a system that delivers to you what people struggle for.
No matter the seed you sow to a man of God if its not sponsored by genuine honour it cannot bless you.
Many persons honour every Man of God except the one person they refer to as a spiritual Father, A man you cant honour shouldn’t be your spiritual Father, the language of Honour you dont give to your father shouldn’t be given to another man of God its improper. True honour without sweat will deliver to you cheaply what 40days fast may not give to you.. Genuine honour that is heart driven and not eye service place you on a pedestal to getting cheaply what Your father struggled to get..
