Father is looking for a few wise master builders. Are you one of them?

Who will be interested in this page?

  • Fathers looking at sons.
  • Sons who are becoming fathers looking at themselves.
  • Both looking to see who is showing signs of preparing to be a wise master builder.

Here are some keys to seeing this kind of father when they come to us.

  • They will have developed very extensively on their own personal journey.
  • They just need some finishing off once here.

They already have all of the necessary fathering skills.

  • The have them from life experience.
  • They do not need to be developed into them here.

A few fathers contain the journey and are able to lay a foundation.

  • All fathers will be able to function within our house.
  • Some few fathers are to start their own house.

These key foundation laying fathers are able to start new houses.

  • A house cannot be started without the active presence of one of these fathers.
  • Once the foundation is laid other fathers can take the family from there.
  • By building on the original foundation.
  • The foundation laying father then goes on to lay another foundation.
  • And start another new house.

This kind of father is not meant for maintenance.

  • They always need to be starting something new.
  • After a short while they will become restless.
  • And have the need to move on to something new and exciting.

The apostle Paul was like this.

  • So were each of the original 12 apostles.
  • They were sent out in 2s to learn by doing.
  • Once they had learned they were then sent out to start a work on their own.
  • With the assistance of other apostles who were in training.
  • It is the same process with fathers.

Here’s what Paul said about laying foundations:  

  • “And so I have made it my aim to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build on another man’s foundation…”
  • “According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it.”
  • Paul preferred to lay the foundation himself.
  • He preferred to not build on someone else’s foundation.

All fathers are builders.

  • These key fathers are not just builders.
  • They are wise master builders who lay foundations.
  • All fathers can build on a foundation.
  • Only some are able to lay a foundation.

One must have a destiny to become a wise master builder.

  • And one must respond to that destiny.
  • It requires a longer period of preparation for this kind of fathering.
  • Father will have put you through a lot of training.
  • With repeated periods of high temperature and pressure.

In the end your preparation will be finished.

  • Then you will begin your work as a foundation layer.
  • It is worth it, but before you get there you will have paid a very high price.
  • The cost to you will have been a trade of everything.
  • Everything.

No one becomes a wise master builder without having been trained by Wisdom.

  • And having the destiny to be a wise master builder.
  • And having allowed Father to train you in this way.

Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords. 

  • This means that there those who are kings.
  • And those who are lords.
  • And those who are lords of lords who train lords to be lords.
  • And those who are kings of kings to train kings to be kings.

Jesus is Everlasting Father.

  • He trains fathers.
  • He is a father of fathers.
  • We can become fathers of fathers too.

Fathers of fathers train fathers.

  • To be fathers.
  • To be fathers of fathers.

Only wise master builders can train fathers to be wise master builders.

  • This will always be done with one or more of the original apostles as a miwl.
  • Likely with Peter, Paul, James or John as one of your miwl.

And most of your preparation for this will have been done one-on-one by Father.

  • Without much input from a spiritual father.
  • Input from a spiritual father will be after a long preparation has been completed.

Only one destined for this will desire it.

  • The price is too high.
  • And the time of preparation is too long and intense.
  • You will be humbled down very low.
  • Before you will be ready to be lifted up.
  • At your destined right time.

“God resists the proud, Butgives grace to the humble.”

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.’

Most fathers are trained to be fathers while in their father’s house.

  • Some few are trained in Father’s house by Father one-on-one.
  • Some have a combination of both types of training.

Those who are training to be a wise master builder will find:

  • That you are facilitating a group on the upward journey.
  • And the upward journey is being revealed to you step by step.
  • As you need it to facilitate your group into it.

Then at some point you will find yourself founding a family.

  • You will facilitate that family along the Upward Journey.
  • Using the knowledge of the journey that you learned earlier.

This includes your matured relationships with:

  • Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit.
  • Lady Wisdom.
  • And her 7 Handmaidens.
  • The 7 spirits of God.
  • Your men in white linen.
  • Your angels.

You will find yourself training up fathers in the context of this new family. 

  • Having them observe you.
  • Showing them what you are doing as a father.
  • Having them shadow you while you do your fathering.
  • Giving them their first opportunities to use their fathering skills.

Sending them out in twos to father groups.

  • While all the time having an ongoing dialog with each emerging father.
  • Until you and they both know that it is time for them to found their own family.

Then it is finally time for them to bear fruit.

  • And have sons!
  • And it is time for you to have grandchildren!

There are many variations on this process.

  • But the major elements of this process are required.
  • In order to become a wise master builder.

Do you see yourself as being prepared to be a wise master builder?

  • Now that you know it’s time to get serious about cooperating with God.
  • Stop complaining about the many hardships that must come along this journey.
  • They are a necessary part of your training.
  • Be thankful for them.
  • And cooperate with Father as He teaches you humility.

You can learn these lessons the easy way or the hard way.

  • But as long as you have said “Yes” you will learn them one way or another.
  • You might as well start learning them the easy way as soon as you can.
  • Adjust your attitude.
  • And get to work from rest.

“God resists the proud, Butgives grace to the humble.”

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.’
