He's Your Father (Matthew 6:9-10)Dr. Sylvester Williams, June 21, 2015
God was not called Father until the book of Jeremiah...father- "ab" means to regenerate. God is a Father, the man is the one that has the seed...
Children come from the man, a father is the one that gives life. You make the Word of God of non-effect because you have not honored your Father and your Mother. God has placed you with the Father that you have because that is His plan for your life.
Don't only look for the material things from our earthly fathers but instead look to your spiritual Father. You are trying to do something when God wants to take care of it.
God said that he will turn the hearts of the father towards the children. Get over it He is your Father. You find in the OT scriptures in the Bible that the father of the family only spoke of the children when they were going to either bless or curse the children... until the Book of Jeremiah. When you are talking about father, it's someone that is regenerated, someone that is born again in Christ Jesus.
Abraham was made the father of many nations. Your father, whether you know your father or not, determines your station in life. The sins of the father falls on the children. So if you as a father does something outside God's wll crazy in life then all the wrong then those consequences fall to your children and then their children.
God promises this covenant with the father. Is this why you are doing all the wrong things in life? To break the curse, overcome that earthly covenant You will have to enter into a new covenant with your Heavenly Father you will never regret it. That covenant only comes through Jesus Christ.
1. The fathers role is to get you here, to provide, to get things in place for the family / children.
2. Our Father ("EL" or being our father) God is Christ Jesus' s father.
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;
And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
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.
Honour thy father and thy mother, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.
If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
When my father and my mother forsake me,
then the Lord will take me up.
