As the people of God assemble today may they look to their heavenly Father, trust in Him as their loving Father and emulate Him in this hour so that the hearts of the children will be turned to them and to God and avert the curse. Mal.4:6,Amp—“He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers [a reconciliation produced by repentance], so that I will not come and strike the land with a curse [of complete destruction].”
Influence For Proliferation
According to the revelation of Prophet Isaiah, our children are to have a greater inheritance and influence than we have had (also Prov 13:22). That cannot happen without facilitation and that begins with the hearts of the fathers turned (by designed effort) to the children. Undeniable and lasting influence and facilitation are by the blessing (by verbalization and by touch) of children by fathers. Abraham’s blessings are claimed by the descendants of both of his sons even to this day. Jacob’s blessings upon his 12 sons were evidenced by the proliferation of 12 entire tribes who still possess some of the most valuable and strategic property on earth. The most powerful nations on earth have not been able to breach those God-ordained blessings. We see, therefore, the great significance of spiritual fathers enlarging their tent to embrace persons whose natural fathers had no spiritual deposit for them. It is wise to note that Prophet Malachi shows our Lord’s desire not only for the hearts of the fathers to be turned to the children but also the hearts of the children to be turned to the fathers (Mal 4:6). It would seem to be a two-way street of children reaching to fathers as well as visa-versa.

Discoverable For Potential
I declare that in 2013 the potential Daniels, Shadrachs, Meshachs, & Abednegos will discover their spiritual fathers and visa versa. And they will not only be potentials but they will do what those powerful young men did; they will confront and contradict leaders and nations unto the purposes of God because they had fathers who imparted grace and sufficiency to them.
God is turning the hearts of the fathers to the children to be “above” and “over” (Thayer) them so that they will cover the children like the roof of a house covers its inhabitants and protects them from the elements. If a father is “over” a child it is as authority acting for the good of the child, not to act in some way or perpetrate upon the child something that is not in complete harmony with the child’s destiny. The children will not reach their destiny without the covering of fathers who live and act on their behalf. The onus is upon the fathers, not the children.
It won’t do any good for the hearts of the children to be turned to the fathers if the hearts of the fathers are not turned to the children. The heart of a child turned to the father without the heart of the father turned to the child only results in wounding the child. There is no neutral position for father or child.
But the general bent of the hearts of the fathers of this generation, as displayed in this nation, is for gratification of self, not self-sacrifice. There is a self-preservation and self-gratification syndrome that has been heinously perpetrated upon this generation of fathers.
But the Spirit of Christ is wrestling with men’s souls to prevent a demonic holocaust that will wipe out a generation and its destiny.
When I got my iPhone, it was difficult to pair the earpiece with it. I finally got the instructions out and was informed that I had to make my iPhone “discoverable.” Once it was discoverable, my earpiece immediately paired with my phone and have had no problems since. We must make ourselves discoverable to the coming generation for communication and impartation.
DECLARE: “I will give of my substance and give myself sacrificially for our children to get to their destiny. I will be discoverable in 2013.”
“And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” (Mal.4:6, NKJV)
