The Presiding Bishop of Answers Assembly, Warri, Delta State, Bishop Irabor Wisdom has taken to his Facebook page to advise Pastors on things they should do if they left without the goodwill and blessings of their spiritual father.
AS A SON YOU CAN HAVE WHAT YOU WANT WITHOUT THE GOODWILL OF YOUR FATHER:
YOU CAN ALSO HAVE YOUR WAY WITHOUT HIS GOODWILL:
BUT HOW FAR CAN YOU GO WITHOUT HIS GOODWILL? HOW FAR CAN YOU GO WITHOUT HIS BLESSINGS?
THE GOODWILL OF A FATHER OVER A SON, IS NOT A POLITICAL PRAYER BUT A HEART TO HEART PRAYER:
This is the more reason, why you must not go if he doesn’t pray for you, release you or bless you from his heart.
But if you choose to go without his goodwill, incase that is the only option you have left, there are 6 things to do, to survive his anger.
These 6 things can also help, if you left already without his Blessings and Goodwill.
NOW THE SIX THINGS:
1. BE SURE YOU ARE SENT BY GOD:
These men have a way of using their Spiritual authority to fight sons who leave them. If you are sent by God, it becomes a battle between them and your sender.
Don’t be found fighting them.
Your can’t win that kind of fight. And you don’t need it in the first place. Your own is to be sure God sent you. And if God be for you, who can be against you?
2. SUBMIT YOURSELF FOR REGULAR BLESSINGS TO THE ONE HE HIMSELF SUBMITS TO:
The man that is blessing the person that is angry with you, is your biggest asset in overcoming everything that is done against you.
Sow into the life of the father of your father, and you will survive every arrow from your father against you.
I believe Gehazi would have survived the curse of leprosy placed on him by Prophet Elisha, if there was Prophet Elijah to run to.
Never be far from your grandfather, if you don’t want to be grounded in life.
3. BY ALL MEANS CONSTANTLY SOW INTO HIS LIFE AND INTO HIS MINISTRY:
The altar you feed, cannot feed on you. You will need your seed to break every siege placed over your life.
There is no man who eats your money that can defeat you spiritually.
Those seeds will speak for you, spiritually and otherwise. Hope you remember, the gift of a man makes room for him and brings him before great men.
4. ATTEND HIS SPECIAL MEETINGS WITH OTHER SONS OF THE PROPHET:
This will help everyone to know that you have nothing against him. He may behave as though he doesn’t want you, don’t be discouraged. He is happy you came though he can’t show it until he is completely healed.
They will do everything to get you angry, things like not calling your name when other sons are recognised, not giving you a seating position, even preaching against you.
Don’t be moved to disconnect, Those are the prices you have to pay, for the restoration and reconciliation you are believing God for.
That place is your root, you will need it to enjoy your fruit.
5. DONT RUSH TO LOOK FOR ANOTHER FATHER: Just leave the issue of who is your father open.
You were raised and ordained in that house, so it is very clear that he is your father, to go and change father because you feel he is not happy with you, is to add fuel to a fire that they used kerosene to ignite. That act will move the fire to another level. And by the time you are restored back to your father, all the situational fathers and mentors you gave yourself will also be angry with you that you used them and dumped them. Still refer to him as your father because that is where you came out from. Connect with other graces, but don’t call them your father.
6. BELIEVE GOD FOR RESULTS AND PROOFS TO VALIDATE YOUR CALL:
If you fail you may never get back your relationship with him. Because to him, if leaving me is for you to go and fail, it is of no use leaving in the first place.
Every failure is an orphan. It is the successful that have family and friends around them. If you succeed, you will periodically hear, he is my son, I raised him, everything he is doing is what he learnt here. Result has a way of changing people’s resolve about you.
Accomplishments make settlement of dispute very easy. Succeed, they will send for you and if they don’t send for you, they will celebrate you the day, you choose to come, but if you fail, you will look for them without finding them.
In conclusion, if you have done all the above and there is still no result, continue to do them and leave everything in God’s hand. It will become very clear later what God wants you to do.
I gave a Pastor these principles last year, today he is restored to his Spiritual father, yet he is still the founder they said he can’t be.
