“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes. And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the land with a decree of utter destruction.” Mal. 4:5-6
First of all, let’s talk about this “Elijah” character. I know many say he is yet to appear, but Jesus said he has already come. (Mark 9:13). Just like the Jews two thousand years ago didn’t recognize the times and events that were transpiring, modern Christians still can’t deduce what transpired 2000 years ago, even though hindsight is 20/20. 🤔 In other words we still say this is going to happen. Even though it’s already happened. For two thousand years Jesus has been in the business of restoring families and restoring the Father/Son paradigm. This is kingdom. The church tries to operate as a business and fails but when you run your business like a family it will succeed. Go figure🤔. “For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus, I have begotten you through the gospel.” 1Cor. 4:15. He is in this season returning the hearts of the fathers to the sons and visa versa. Prodigals are returning to a father’s house not an institution.❤️🔥 This may be one of the most important, yet unheralded dynamics of restoration in modern culture. The restoration of the family and the fatherly role that men are to play in society. Can you truly succeed in ministry and fail as a father?🤔 Think on these things as we pray.🙏 “Father in heaven, Holy is your name! Restore in our time the father son paradigm. Give us spiritual fathers in the body of Christ. And restore the church to heaven’s agenda. In the name of Yeshua! Amen!” Pastor Rusty.
