Context Through the Reformation the person of Jesus was restored to the Church. Through the Pentecostal Revival we received again the person and power of the Holy Spirit. Each of these waves brought profound revelation, radical transformation and exponential growth to the Body of Christ across the nations. Today, now, a fresh new wave is rising, perhaps the greatest wave of all, because Father is coming and Jesus Himself said, “The Father is greater than I.” In his 1998 newsletter, Derek Prince wrote of a transformational spiritual epiphany he had experienced two years prior; “Immediately, without any mental process of reasoning, I knew that I could call God my Father. I had used the phrase “our Father” for more than fifty years. Doctrinally, I was clear about this truth. I had even preached a series of three messages on “Knowing God as Father.” But what I received at that moment was a direct, personal revelation… it became completely natural for me to address God as ‘Father’ or ‘my Father.’ I have a personal relationship, not just a theological position!”
In Romans Paul tells us that all of creation is groaning as in the pains of labour for the sons and daughters of God to be unveiled - the time has come... Jesus had the heart of a son to his Father. He lived in the presence of the love of the Father. John's Gospel tells us that everything that He said and did was what He saw and heard His Father doing. Jesus invites us to enter that world as brothers and sisters of Him the first born.
