Apostle Grace Lubega
Malachi 4:6(KJV); And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
The fathering [or mothering] spirit defines the anointing every generation should flow in. Consequently, it also defines how far a generation can go.
When we hear statements such as ‘Father of the Pentecostal Movement’; ‘Father of the Holiness Movement’; ‘Father of the Word for Faith Movement’, these were all examples of the anointing that various generations flowed in.
The anointing flowed from certain men and women whom God had anointed and called for their times and these same men and women transferred the same to those that were humble and submitted enough to receive from them.
Until this is understood, the Church can never flow in the generational anointing because the essence of impartations that transfer mantles is the father-son relationship.
It is against the spiritual order to transfer a mantle to a prodigal or to a servant who has not understood his identity as a son.
In the spiritual realm, that cycle would rather stay incomplete until a son is raised in the same line.
This is what happened with Elisha’s lineage. He received a mantle from Elijah. This mantle was supposed to be passed on to Gehazi but Gehazi was a prodigal in many ways. He was a servant of the man of God without the heart of a son. As such, the anointing was not passed on to him as the person who was next in line.
To God, it was much preferable to keep it in the bones of a dead man rather than rest that mantle on the head of an indifferent man.
Mantles do not rest on people who are indifferent to this order. Mantles do not rest on mere servants. Mantles rest on true sons.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this truth. Every day, you colour my path with the wisdom of the ages; things that define destinies and align me to divine order. I can never be found to be indifferent to the truth of submission and accountability. I am alive to what it means, requires and demands of me. In this understanding, I serve, minister and grow. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
