Title: BUILDING LEADERSHIP THROUGH SONSHIP Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain.


1
BUILDING LEADERSHIP THROUGH SONSHIPUnless the
Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who
build it Unless the Lord guards the city, The
watchman keeps awake in vain.

SONS BUILD
  • The building activity of God is best encapsulated
    in the term SON.
  • Outside of the concept or reality of SON, God
    does not build anything.
  • naturally implies fathering also, so the
    Father-son dynamic becomes the infrastructure
    the new wineskin the resource that God will use
    to build His purposes in the earth.
  • The Lord desires to build through our labouring

3
  • Builds benah derived from the root word,
    ben which means son
  • God builds through sonship and fathering
  • It is so important to SEE the Father in the Son
    we must see Divinity in Humanity, (Randolph)

4
LEADERSHIP CONCERNS RAISING SONS, NOT SIMPLY
LEADING PEOPLE.
  • It is imperative that leaders relate to the
    people they are leading as sons, and not simply
    members
  • Implicit in this principle is the idea that
    leaders have the ability by their leadership to
    facilitate and provide the context, resources and
    skills that essentially cause the sons to
    progress from one stage of development to
    another. David, before he died gathered much of
    the building materials and resources that Solomon
    needed to build the temple.
  • Sons are heirs to all that their Fathers wealth
    and resources. Leaders must function with the
    goal of passing on all they have attained to the
    people they are leading.

5
  • Deriving total benefit from those who lead you
    requires that you have an open heart toward them
  • For maximum impact upon your life, there must be
    a reception of both the message and the
    messenger.
  • Principle Your Perception will determine your
    Reception and your Reception will determine your
    Reward (Matthew 1040,41)

6
BIBLICAL EXAMPLES OF FATHER SON RELATIONSHIPS
  • Father God and Jesus (Devine relationship)
  • Joseph and Jesus (Human relationship)
  • Paul and Timothy, Titus
  • Abraham and Isaac (Nations)
  • Elijah and Elisha (Double portion)
  • Naomi and Ruth
  • Esther and Mordecai
  • David and the 12 Tribes of Israel

7
FROM CHILDREN TO SONS
  • God desires that we grow in maturity from the
    spiritual state of being children of God to sons
    of God
  • Fathers Perceive their Sons, Sons Represent their
    Fathers, to do the will of the Father, Families
    Are Born, (Malicah4 5,6)
  • In the Father is locked up a SEED, a seed to
    produce more Sons that carry the SEED of the
    Father Through a SEED (JESUS CHRIST) was
    everything created and fashioned for His Name
    Sake
  • Who carries this SEED? FATHER, through a Father,
    natural families are formed, the 1st biological
    SEED was ADAMS SEED through that 1st SEED, many
    Family Nations were Born, right to this very
    point.

8
  • The Last SEED was not a biological (Natural)
    SEED, but totally a Spiritual one. That is why
    the New Wine Skin of Families is not primarily
    about the Natural but emphasising more the
    Spirit,
  • The 1st SEED was controlled by the Soul, whereas
    the last SEED, was is controlled by the Spirit.
  • Child nepios without full power of speech
    literally, not-speaking
  • ( translated as babe denotes a little
    child,)
  • Child teknon a child, youth, teenage
  • huios son stresses the dignity and
    character of the relationship.
  • Pater father, stressing the fathering spirit
    locked up in the son

9
Children have limitations in the following areas
  • Speech, (inability to articulate intentions or
    communicate sensibly)
  • Understanding, (phroneo to be minded)
  • Thought or reasoning
  • Carnality (of the flesh, governed by human
    nature)
  • Neglecting the application of truth reveled.
  • Being governed by external regulations
  • Eph 414,15
  • that we should no longer be children, tossed to
    and fro and carried about every wind of doctrine,
    by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness
    of deceitful plotting, but speaking the truth in
    love, may grow up in all things into Him who is
    the headChrist.

SHAPERNED SONSDOUBLY FRUITFUL
11
  • Psalm 1271-5
  • 1  Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor
    in vain who build it Unless the Lord guards the
    city, The watchman keeps awake in vain.
  • 2      It is vain for you to rise up early, To
    retire late, To eat the bread of painful
    labors For He gives to His beloved even in his
    sleep.
  • 3      Behold, children are a gift of the Lord,
    The fruit of the womb is a reward.
  • 4      Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So
    are the children of ones youth.
  • 5      How blessed is the man whose quiver is
    full of them They will not be ashamed When they
    speak with their enemies in the gate.

12
  • Isaiah 491-2
  • 1      Listen to Me, O islands, And pay
    attention, you peoples from afar. The Lord
    called Me from the womb From the body of My
    mother He named Me.
  • 2      He has made My mouth like a sharp sword,
    In the shadow of His hand He has concealed Me
    And He has also made Me a select arrow, He has
    hidden Me in His quiver.
  • Select arrow Choice arrow
  • Polished arrow (KJV)
  • Pointed arrow (CEV)
  • Sharpened arrow (GWV)
  • Select barûr
  • to purify, select, to sharpen
  • Concealed/Hidden satar
  • to hide, conceal.
  • It has the sense of preventing someone to know or
    see something, to keep something from public
    notice or from certain persons

13
  • ISSUE OF Submission
  • Luke 241-52
  • 41      Now His parents went to Jerusalem every
    year at the Feast of the Passover.
  • 42      And when He became twelve, they went up
    there according to the custom of the Feast
  • 43      and as they were returning, after
    spending the full number of days, the boy Jesus
    stayed behind in Jerusalem. But His parents were
    unaware of it,
  • 44      but supposed Him to be in the caravan,
    and went a days journey and they began looking
    for Him among their relatives and acquaintances.
  • 45      When they did not find Him, they returned
    to Jerusalem looking for Him.
  • 46      Then, after three days they found Him in
    the temple, sitting in the midst of the
    teachers, both listening to them and asking them
    questions.
  • 47      And all who heard Him were amazed at His
    understanding and His answers.
  • 48      When they saw Him, they were astonished
    and His mother said to Him, Son, why have You
    treated us this way? Behold, Your father and I
    have been anxiously looking for You.
  • 49      And He said to them, Why is it that you
    were looking for Me? Did you not know that I had
    to be in My Fathers house?
  • 50      But they did not understand the statement
    which He had made to them.
  • 51      And He went down with them and came to
    Nazareth, and He continued in subjection to
    them and His mother treasured all these things
    in her heart.
  • 52      And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom and
    stature, and in favor with God and men.

14
  • Submission to this natural dimension of
    fathering over him was a necessary prerequisite
    to him fully expressing his divine sonship to His
    Heavenly father.
  • At 12 years old (12 representing the apostolic
    and governance), he already had an awareness of
    his heavenly origins and the assignment of His
    Heavenly Father. When Mary and Joseph found him
    his response was that they should have known that
    he would be in his Fathers house.
  • Luke 251 and he continued in subjection to
    them
  • Subjection huptasso
  • hupo under tasso to place in order
  • To place under in an orderly fashion

15
  • Note they went to Nazareth
  • It was prophesied that he would be called the
    Nazarene.
  • Nazareth the guarded one
  • Hence a place of protection and incubation a
    place of watchfulness by your father over you
    but which may seem as your being confined and
    imprisoned.
  • Nazareth was a place of disrepute.
  • Can any good thing come out of Nazareth (John
    146).
  • Submission to your father will cause you to
    become a man of no reputation. Every bit of the
    flesh and of self will have to die within so
    that, like Jesus, you will become a man of no
    reputation.

16
  • Nazareth separated, crowned or sanctified In
    your purification and separation you are
    crowned being prepared for dominion and
    rulership.
  • Nazareth preservation
  • Submission to your fathers grace and instruction
    will preserve you.
  • Nazareth was in the province of Galilee
  • Galilee circle or circuit

17
  • Luke 252
  • And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom, and stature,
  • and in favour with God and man.
  • This verse says of Jesus that he kept increasing
    in four dimensions
  • - in wisdom - mentally functioning by the
    thinking of God
  • - in stature - physically - His body
    developing externally
  • - in favour with God - spiritually - in
    relationship with his Father
  • - in favour with man - socially - divine
    connections set up
  • Increase propkopto
  • to strike a way forward
  • to cut a way forward
  • to drive forward (as if by beating)
  • to beat or drive forward as with repeated
    strokes
  • to advance
  • to proceed, profit, wax, be far spent, etc.

18
  • Prior to the active submission to his parents the
    Scripture says of Jesus
  • Luke 240 
  • The Child continued to grow and become strong,
    increasing in wisdom and the grace of God was
    upon Him.
  • Increasing pleroo to be full of
  • Active submission to them caused Jesus to
  • experience increase in FOUR dimensions.
  • Luke 252
  • And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom,
  • and stature, and in favour with God and man

19
  • Arrows were used for hunting and/or
  • military purposes.
  • Provision will be secured through sons.
  • Epaphroditus ministered to Pauls needs.
  • Phil 225
  • But I thought it necessary to send to you
    Epaphroditus, my brother and fellow worker and
    fellow soldier, who is also your messenger and
    minister to my need

20
  • Measure of success is dependent on the measure of
    obedience to the Fathers voice.
  • 2 Kings 1315-18
  • 14 When Elisha became sick with the illness of
    which he was to die, Joash the king of Israel
    came down to him and wept over him and said, My
    father, my father, the chariots of Israel and
    its horsemen!
  • 15      Elisha said to him, Take a bow and
    arrows. So he took a bow and arrows.
  • 16      Then he said to the king of Israel, Put
    your hand on the bow. And he put his hand on
    it, then Elisha laid his hands on the kings
    hands.
  • 17      He said, Open the window toward the
    east, and he opened it. Then Elisha said,
    Shoot! And he shot. And he said, The Lords
    arrow of victory, even the arrow of victory over
    Aram for you will defeat the Arameans at Aphek
    until you have destroyed them.
  • 18      Then he said, Take the arrows, and he
    took them. And he said to the king of Israel,
    Strike the ground, and he struck it three times
    and stopped.
  • 19      So the man of God was angry with him and
    said, You should have struck five or six times,
    then you would have struck Aram until you would
    have destroyed it. But now you shall strike Aram
    only three times.

21
  • Ps 1275a     
  • How blessed is the man whose
  • quiver is full of them
  • Blessed eser
  • denotes a persons state of bliss
  • (Oh the blissfulness of .)

22
  • Ps 1275b
  • They will not be ashamed
  • When they speak with their enemies in the gate.
  • Significant cities in biblical times were walled
    for protection. Entrance in to and exit our of
    these cities was only possible through fortified
    gates.
  • Gates in Scripture highlight the following
  • 1. Controlled Access
  • Regulating what elements gain access into an
    area
  • 2. Governmental and Legal Determination
  • Elder sat at the gates and made governmental or
    judicial decisions, eg determination of policy
    governing the city and settling disputes. So
    gates represents authority the right to make
    decisions that affect a large community or
    congregation of people.
  • 3. Strategic Business and Commercial
    Transactions
  • Key business contracts and deals were concluded
    in the gates of the city. These were made and
    witnessed in the gates of the city.

23
  • Zechariah 913
  • For I will bend Judah as My bow, I will fill the
    bow with Ephraim.
  • And I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against
    your sons, O Greece
  • And I will make you like a warriors sword.
  • Judah is described as the bow and Ephraim the
    arrow.
  • Judah means praised, but the name has a far
    deeper than this, perhaps, simplistic
    understanding.
  • In the Hebrew, Judah Jehuwdah derived from
    Yadah
  • Completely, the meaning of Yadah is the
    following
  • to use the hand to hold out the hand
  • to physically throw a stone (cf. David) or to
    shoot an arrow
  • to revere or to worship with extended hands
  • the ringing of the hand to bemoan something
  • to confess, shoot, thank
  • The Hebrew, Yadah, comes from the root word YAD
    a physical hand an opened hand indicating power,
    resourcefulness and direction. The hand in
    Scripture indicates power and authority to do or
    to act.

24
  • Psalm 7872
  • So he shepherded them
  • according to the ?
  • integrity of his heart,
  • And guided them with
  • his skillful hands.

25
  • Ashamed bos
  • to act shamefully is equivalent to acting
    unwisely
  • to be delayed or
  • to be disappointed
  • to be confounded
  • 1. Unwise actions
  • Proverbs 101-5
  • 1      The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son makes
    a father glad, But a foolish son is a grief to
    his mother.
  • 2      Ill-gotten gains do not profit, But
    righteousness delivers from death.
  • 3      The Lord will not allow the righteous to
    hunger, But He will reject the craving of the
    wicked.
  • 4      Poor is he who works with a negligent
    hand, But the hand of the diligent makes rich.
  • 5 He who gathers in summer is a son who acts
    wisely, But he who sleeps in harvest is a son who
    acts shamefully

26
  • To be ashamed is to experience distress, as
    farmers with no harvest.
  • an absence of provision
  • Jer. 144
  • Because the ground is cracked, For there has
    been no rain on the land The farmers have been
    put to shame, They have covered their heads.
  • Joel 111
  • Be ashamed, O farmers, Wail, O vinedressers, For
    the wheat and the barley Because the harvest of
    the field is destroyed.
  • But the blessing of God means that one will never
    be put to shame
  • Joel 226, 27
  • 26 You will have plenty to eat and be satisfied
    And praise the name of the Lord your God, Who
    has dealt wondrously with you Then My people
    will never be put to shame.
  • 27      Thus you will know that I am in the
    midst of Israel, And that I am the Lord your
    God, And there is no other And My people will
    never be put to shame.

27
  • Ezekiel 3715-19
  • 15      The word of the Lord came again to me
    saying,
  • 16      And you, son of man, take for yourself
    one stick and write on it, For Judah and for
    the sons of Israel, his companions then take
    another stick and write on it, For Joseph, the
    stick of Ephraim and all the house of Israel,
    his companions.
  • 17      Then join them for yourself one to
    another into
  • one stick, that they may become one in
    your hand.
  • 18      When the sons of your people speak to
    you saying, Will you not declare to us what you
    mean by these?
  • 19      say to them, Thus says the Lord God,
    Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which
    is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of
    Israel, his companions
  • and I will put them with it, with the stick of
    Judah, and make them one stick, and they will
    be one in My hand.

28
  • Jeremiah 3115-20
  • 15      Thus says the Lord, A voice is heard in
    Ramah, Lamentation and bitter weeping. Rachel is
    weeping for her children She refuses to be
    comforted for her children, Because they are no
    more.
  • 16      Thus says the Lord, Restrain your voice
    from weeping And your eyes from tears For your
    work will be rewarded, declares the Lord, And
    they will return from the land of the enemy.
  • 17      There is hope for your future, declares
    the Lord, And your children will return to
    their own territory.

29
  • 18      I have surely heard Ephraim grieving,
    You have chastised me, and I was chastised,
    Like an untrained calf Bring me back that I may
    be restored, For You are the Lord my God.
  • 19      For after I turned back, I repented And
    after I was instructed, I smote on my thigh I
    was ashamed and also humiliated Because I bore
    the reproach of my youth.
  • 20      Is Ephraim My dear son? Is he a
    delightfu lchild? Indeed, as often as I have
    spoken against him, I certainly still remember
    him Therefore My heart yearns for him I will
    surely have mercy on him, declares the Lord.

30
