One of the main ways that YAHUWAH provides leadership in His kingdom is through fathers. This is why the spirit of Elijah has now come and is restoring "the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers." Otherwise the "great and dreadful Day of the YHWH" which now is, would consume us and "strike the earth with a curse" (Mal. 4:4-6). These final words in the Older Covenant point to YHWH's "father leadership" in His kingdom. Fathering involves the loving heart attitude displayed in raising children. A father exhorts and comforts and implores and sometimes chastens when necessary (1 Thess. 2:11, Heb. 12:7-11). A father is always around through the thick and thin. A father never leaves you nor forsakes you. A father not only goes with you into battle, he leads the way (Joshua 1:5-9). Fathering is a major leadership method for building the body of Mashiach.

The most important thing you could ever impart to someone is how to love YHWH, and this does not come by teaching or laying on of hands or any other "quick fix" method. It comes from being loved by a father. It comes by hanging around someone on a consistent basis who has an intimate relationship with  Abba Father. This is why before Malki Tzedik Yahusha came, we never truly knew how to be intimate with YHWH. Malki Tzedik Yahusha started the Fathering mentorship by being a father to twelve men and those twelve men became fathers who had sons who became fathers, and so on and so on. The fathering family of YHWH begins.

It is easy to get a "corporation mentality" and try to pump out as many sons and daughters as you can, but the reality is that if you try to father too many children you cease to be a father and start becoming more of a corporation where the intimacy is lost. A father does not even choose his own children, but they are given to him by YHWH, and a child does not get to choose their father either. Much of the disarray in the body of Mashiach is a result of fathers hand picking their children according to those who "fit their mold" instead of fathering the sons and daughters that YHWH has chosen for them. We need to be "joined and knit together" correctly according to YHWH's will so that "every part does its share, causing growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love" (Eph. 4:16).

The hierarchy of YHWH's kingdom does not look like the typical corporate organizational chart with the president on top and other people branching off of them and other people branching off of them etc. Rather it is like a huge fishing net (network). All members of the body are physically connected to only a FEW parts of the body, but they receive the benefit of the entire body by way of the blood. In the same manner, the blood of Malki Tzedik Yahusha runs through the entire body of Mashiach to give life for the benefit of all. "The life of the flesh is in the blood" Leviticus 17:11.

1 Corinthians 11:25-30 says, "In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me." For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the YHWH's death till He comes. Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the YHWH in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the YHWH. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread and drink of that cup. For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning YHWH's body. For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep."

If we are not properly joined together to the part of the body of Mashiach that YHWH has called us, then the blood (life) cannot flow properly. The reason for much of the weakness, sickness and premature death among believers is that we do not "discern the YHWH's body" correctly. In other words, we are not discerning where in the body of Mashiach we should be joined or who are our spiritual fathers and children. This is partly due to the set-up of the current "church institutions" which do not promote family intimacy, but rather a spectator mentality. This is going to change.

YHWH is bringing His people into His order, and fathering (as opposed to the current carnal granary mega-church corporation mentality) is according to His order. YHWH only asked for His people to gather together in large groups three times a year. Deuteronomy 16:16 says, "Three times a year all your males shall appear before the YHWH your YHWH in the place which He chooses: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Tabernacles; and they shall not appear before the YHWH empty handed." Leviticus 23 tells us that these feasts were given by YHWH to be celebrated "forever" as a memorial and a holy convocation. All of these feasts are Mashiach centered and point to Malki Tzedik Yahusha as the Messiah. The rest of the year we should be in small "families" as the YHWH leads, being fathered and fathering according to our maturity.

I believe that YHWH will use the 1,000 year reign of Mashiach (Rev. 20:1-7) to implement this "fathering leadership." The feasts of YHWH will once again be celebrated annually (Lev. 23) and the family will begin to be restored as YHWH's main training ground for His people. Although it will take 1,000 years to perfect, this will cure much of the confusion in the body of Mashiach, because  the structure of the current church system draws leaders into envy and self-seeking. James 3:16 says, "For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing will be there." But if you have more of a family structure with fathering and mothering continually going on in a smaller group, then real intimacy and "love in action" can take place on a day to day basis, instead of just on Sunday morning.

The words "father" and "fathers" appears in the Torah/Instruction 1,484 times. Needless to say, the scriptures have much to say about fathers. This article is not for the purpose of studying the entire role of the father, but for showing that fathering is more than just raising children, it is the very plan and order for YHWH's leadership. Of course YHWH is our ultimate Father as 2 Corinthians 6:18 tells us, "I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the YHWH Almighty." But don't forget that the apostle Paul also considered himself a father, and this fathering leadership has been YHWH's way of maturing His people from the beginning. "For though you might have ten thousand instructors in Mashiach, yet you do not have many fathers; for in Mashiach Malki Tzedik Yahusha I have begotten you through the gospel. Therefore, I urge you, imitate me." 1 Corinthians 4:15,16..... Intercession is vital for our sons and daughters in the battle for Peace in the land where civilization started.
