Some of them when they become too gifted they stay away from me and they think they are in a good relationship.

I may not speak to you again and hear well and tell even those who have qualified to a point of not having time for this food.

You are son of God to the extent that you are son of Man.

That does not make them sons.
I have seen gifted people terribly failing in relationships.
Now I see some of you are beginning to be in honeymoon with gifts and skill and they fail the sonship relationship.
The sons who are closer to me know what is happening in my life in south sudan and what God is doing in my life but I keep my relationship with them.
Now I see sons with a liiiiitle success and they stay away from me.
When they hear the big things they suddenly come running back to me.
I will stick to my sons no matter what gifts the Lord showers in this house.
I am the father according to the order of Joseph.
I am the father according to the order of Manoah.
I father character and I let gifts to be mentored.
Joseph was fathering the character of Jesus and not the gift.
He knew that Jesus is far gifted than him but he was appointed to father character.
Jesus did not say my gift is too much you don't qualify to father me only God can.
He knew that it is character/soul that is watched over not gift.
Well Samson missed this truth!
Samson figured it like Manoah does not qualify to "father the Gift" in him.
Character is what we father but gifts are mentored.
My son has the highest gift of drawing and I can't father it. I father his character but I allow mentors and teachers to develop his gift and skill.
