Where are the Fathers - Young black men having a meal in a restaurant | Free Issue of the Nashville Christian Family magazine - Free Christian Magazine

The soul of the infant originates in the bloodline of the father; It yearnsfor the love, and affirmation of the father’s voice. Adam, the first soul on earth, knew his earthly/heavenly father by his voice. From the time that his father fashioned him out of the dust of the ground and breathed into him the breath of life and he became a living soul. His relationship with his father was his father’s voice and his presence.

God the creator only fathered two souls in the earth. Adam, and Yeshua (Jesus) his only begotten son. Both knew the voice of their father. Adam obeyed the voice until he and woman ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Yeshua obeyed his father’s voice even until the death on the cross. He always did what he heard the father say.

The soul of everyone born into the earth is comprised of the mind ( human intellect), emotions, and the will. It is the soul that must surrender and humble itself and receive the atoning blood of Yeshua (Jesus ) in order to be reconciled to God our heavenly father and the father of our spirit. 

A child’s soul yearns to hear the blessing and affirmation that are essential to the child’s journey. When a father is absence from the child’s life there is a huge void especially if there is no male (In the village) community, who’s voice and presence can fill the void. 

This is the reason Yeshua had to have an earthly surrogate father who was present and endowed with the understanding that Yeshua’s soul originated from the heavenly father not from the seed (sperm) of an earthly father, because all earthly fathers have sin in their blood lines. If Yeshua was to originate from the seed of an earthly father his soul would have been contaminated with sin. The Holy Spirit came upon Mary, the mother of Yeshua, and placed the seed in her. There was no sin in the seed of the MostHigh.

Then the angel Gabriel was sent to Joseph to let him know he had been appointed to be the surrogate father to the son of God and would be held responsible for the care for the mother and child. 

Yeshua in the womb could hear his father’s voice comforting his mother letting her know all would be well. He could sense the joy in his father’s voice when he found a safe place in a stable amongst the farm animal, where he was to be born.

At the age of twelve (puberty) he knew it was time for him to be about his father’s business, and questioned his earthly parents who were not aware of the importance of this time in his life. At thirty he heard the voice of his heavenly father who spoke from heaven, affirming him at his baptism, Luke 3:22 “you are my beloved son in who Iam well pleased.” Then his heavenly father sent the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove to rest upon his shoulder. Giving a visible manifestation of his blessing endowing his son to fulfill the purpose for which he had been sent.

It Is rare in this present age for a child to receive the blessing and spiritual endowment from his biological father.

What are the results in a society when the significance of a father as a spiritual covering has been relegated to be archaic and unnecessary? Our headlines and media screens daily report the travesty of a fatherless culture: anxiety, sickness, disease, trauma, bullying, sexual perversion, gender confusion, suicide, divorce, chaos, greed, wars and conflict.

There is a divine power that is innate in the son, husband, and fathers that was placed there by God the MostHigh. He has an expectancy of men to protect, provide, and endow their families and teach them the ways of his kingdom. In biblical times barren women would always ask for a son because they understood the importance of being spiritually covered. This order was established by the MostHigh. We owe mothers a debt of gratitude for having faithfully tried to fill the void of absentee fathers. 

Lamentations 5:1-7,” Remember, O Lord, what is come upon us: consider, and behold our reproach. Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to aliens. We are orphans and fatherless, our mothers are as widows. Our fathers have sinned and are not: and we have borne their iniquities.” 

Yeshua while dying on the cross gave his mother a spiritual covering. John 19:26-27, “When Yeshua therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved he saith unto his mother, Woman behold thy son! Then said he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.”
