There is such a place where the vision of the sons connects with the dreams of the fathers. A place of connection where heritage is secured and brings into possession inheritance.
The source which feeds the seamless connection is God. One source pouring out on both generations, one source must by revelation reveal the relationship to both the forefathers, and the Sons. Sons need the heritage of the forefathers, inherited by accurate administration communicated by the Spirit of God.
When we by the revelation of the Holy Spirit tap into Kingdom advance we find clear apostolic reference as to our current position in the Kingdom. Through the book of Genesis we are introduced at a key point in God's prophetic agenda running concurrently in the lives of both Jacob and Joseph. Father and Sons in transition. Father and Sons in movement. Father and Sons in fulfilment.
In verse 25 we intercept the sons of Jacob returning to report the discovery of Joseph alive in Egypt.
Then they went up out of Egypt, and came to the land of Canaan to Jacob their father. And they told him, saying, 'Joseph is still alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt.' And Jacob's heart stood still, because he did not believe them. But when they told him all the words which Joseph had said to them, and when he saw the carts which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived. Then Israel said, 'It is enough. Joseph my son is still alive. I will go and see him before I die.'
This is the condition of the Fathers in this present time. When the Sons came with the first report of Joseph's death, Jacob was so easy to believe their report; Jacob sought the comfort of his grief rather than the Lord to discover the truth. Are not the pathways of the just holy? Are not the paths secured from the rage of lions? Can the enemy find room in these paths? No. But the revelation of Jacobs's migration stopped when he believed in the death of his seed, the end of his nature. He believed in the natural, the evidence bought by the sons, the coat covered in the blood of a lamb. He accepted a thing called fate rather than a prophetic word, the fathers became bound by false evidence, and thus migration was slowed down, ended in settlement within a despondent land.
And so the Bible states:
Genesis 37:1, 2 - Jacob lived in the land where his father had stayed, the land of Canaan. This is the account of Jacob.
'Joseph a young man of seventeen'
Thus the batten had already been handed over, the pace has to take a unique and different path towards fulfilment.
Oh death where is your sting? We will not believe your report found in the natural, we will not believe the report of evil men. Despite what they show us, our eyes will not deceive us because we know what you Lord have already said. The prophetic word is true, the prophetic word does not lie, we speak out and speak forth.
His heart stood still, had not his heart already been still, not migrating when he believed the report of his son's death. Did he not know of the conniving and malicious intentions of his sons, sons who do not bear the same journeying nature of the Father? When we believe the report of the carnal we believe the report of evil men. The carnal mind is enmity against God, the carnal mind is evil, it cannot agree with the heavenly mind. It cannot believe heavenly promises. It stops us from migrating into visionary embodiment. Thus when the Sons come with the truth it reveals the nature of the heart of Jacob. That he has stood still.
The revelation of the vision of Joseph is now embodied. Not only is he alive, but the state of his life is one of Government.
'Joseph is still alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt.'
Look at our position as sons we are not just alive, but we are governors over a territory. Our Fathers stopped migrating by believing in the evidence of the flesh. But we have been raised in the midst and heart of the enemy to govern. We are governors; we already are, not waiting to be. The Fathers have heard a report, and this report is a life, a son life, and a son life in government.
Verse 27 But when they told him all the words which Joseph had said to them, and when he saw the carts which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived. Then Israel said, 'It is enough. Joseph my son is still alive. I will go and see him before I die.'
Something has caused the Fathers to desire to come to us, something that was carried in the report. Something of evidence from heavenly government. That which was carried, enabled the Father to be revived, strengthened them to come to us. That something is covenant faith. Only the Sons can draw the Fathers, because the Sons carry the same substance as the Fathers. The Fathers have to respond, they have to bring their heritage. The Father recognise covenant faith, it overrides distance and time, because it lives, lives I say in eternity. It's alive, only those who have it recognise it.
'I will go and see him before I die.'
Fathers cannot rest until they see sons in governmental authority, Fathers will not rest until all government has been established, and this rest is the completion in visionary embodiment of the Son. Sons are the embodiment of the Fathers dreams, for they speak in all aspect of their nature of the Fathers dreams.
Verse 1 So Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beersheba, and offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac. Then God spoke to Israel in the visions of the night, and said, 'Jacob, Jacob!'
The last leg of the Fathers renews the incentive to sacrifice. Look at the strength of covenant faith when the Sons are alive, it draws on the spirit of sacrifice, thus the Sons draw the Fathers to first journey and then to renew themselves again in consecration. Why did Jacob not offer sacrifices before to hear from God, on the accuracy of the report of his son. Because evil report does not draw strength for consecration, rather it desolates and stagnates.
Verse 2 Then God spoke to Israel in the visions of the night, and said, 'Jacob, Jacob!'
Oh what a terrible thing when in the night time, in the darkness of men the Father of spirits has to call twice, 'Jacob, Jacob' Does it not inform us of how far we are away, dislocated because we have succumbed to our carnal thinking. Verily, Verily, Jacob, Jacob these all speak of our deafness.
God has to source to us that he is in the life of the Son who is in government.
And he said, 'Here I am.'
For the first time Jacob can find an accurate place, his rightful place, a restful disposition before the Father of spirits. We can only find identity when we respond to God's voice 'as He is so are we' Here I am' The 'I am' of God connects with the 'I am' of Jacob.
Verse 3 So He said, 'I am God, the God of your father; do not fear to go down to Egypt, for I will make of you a great nation there.
Only in the 'I am' of God can we find the great nation, that He has promised. We are 'I am's' settled as governors in territories to produce a great nation. The nation of Israel was produced in Egypt, and then trained in the wilderness. We are to produce in the midst of the enemy, without fear but with boldness, the enemy’s day of productivity is over. Christ's day of productivity has begun. Hallelujah. God has His 'I am' in the midst of the enemy in His Son. A Son carries the stature of the Father. When the Son rises in the midst, in the heart of the enemy territory, it is all over.
Verse 4 I will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also surely bring you up again; and Joseph will put his hand on your eyes.'
Oh how the Sons will open the eyes of the Fathers, reveal the embodied destiny of the dream. We as Sons reveal through embodiment, not idle words but animated words in action flowing and governing. Joseph will place his hands on his Father, reconnect with his heritage. We will place our hands upon our heritage, securing our history. Possessing our inheritance in our Fathers.
Verse 5 Then Jacob arose from Beersheba; and the sons of Israel carried their father Jacob, their little ones, and their wives, in the carts which Pharaoh had sent to carry him. So they took their livestock and their goods, which they had acquired in the land of Canaan, and went to Egypt, Jacob and all his descendants with him. His sons and his sons' sons, his daughters and his sons' daughters, and all his descendants he brought with him to Egypt.
Thus the heritage of the Fathers are carried in the covenant faith of the sons to a place of transmission, its destination. When the Sons express and reveal themselves through revelation, the Fathers have to by covenant release the fullness of their heritage. The fullness of the heritage of the Fathers are being released to us, because they have seen us embody the government of the prophetic word in the midst of the territory. All the heritage of the descendants is being released into our possession, heritage has become our inheritance, and we have possessed our inheritance. This inheritance is the strengths and abilities wrapped in the sons and the daughters of God's Kingdom. His sons and his daughters the dabar children, whom have stayed with the old, whilst the lights have gone out, have seen the light of the Joseph sons and are migrating towards it. Have we not heard that the Lord would return many of the old? This is marvellous in our eyes.
The Government of Joseph
Look at the life of Joseph in Egypt, by much wisdom and revelation he built store houses for the famine to come, he through divine initiative built structures that would become a refuge in terrible times. So to like Hannah storing up the love of her husband we have been storing up the revelation of the Father, building in the administration which will have generations come to us for refuge.
In every territory, men will pull on the shirts of sons, looking for divine wisdom in their famine. We are the storehouses for many, the places of refuge. They like in Egypt will give treasure for food. Treasure for heavenly governmental substance. They will submit to our infrastructure to be edified.
They will ascend to the mountain of the Lord to hear His ways so that they may be saved from the famine in the land. We have been storing and building for the critical point where heaven bursts forth, we are in the right place at the right time. We are sons of the most high, being fed by heavenly nourishment, in a system of heavenly construction. Ready to receive refugees from many lands.
