In 1983 God spoke to me in a vision. It was in this vision that He prompted my heart to begin a work that would ultimately play a part in establishing His covenant in the earth. This work would manifest through a local church, God's sanctioned representative in the earth. This is a brief summary of that vision:
My wife and I were in a delivery room and she was about to give birth to a baby. In the room with us was the doctor and two nurses. The room was dimly lit and filled with the anticipation of the new arrival. My wife began to give birth and the doctor delivered a healthy baby boy. We all rejoiced!
The doctor severed the umbilical cord and placed the child on a cold stainless steel cart. He then turned away, the nurses following. My wife rose off the delivery bed, left the room and I too, turned to leave. Suddenly, the Lord stopped me. As I turned toward the child, He said, "This is what is happening to my people, they are being birthed, but not fathered."
We believe it is God's plan to not only spiritually birth children into the family of God, but mature them; from babes to fully mature sons and daughters. This neglect has caused a powerless, immature church that has not revealed to the world "the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ" (Ephesians 4:13)
I personally have a mandate from Yahweh to establish this covenant in the Ocala/Marion County area; to perfect the saints for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
