Fatherhood: Honour & Dishonour | INFEMI Sermon By Bishop Mulumbi

Fatherhood: Honour & Dishonour: Sermon By Bishop Mulumbi

The sons of Noah who went forth from the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Ham was the father of Canaan [born later]. These are the three sons of Noah, and from them the whole earth was overspread and stocked with inhabitants.

And Noah began to cultivate the ground, and he planted a vineyard. And he drank of the wine and became drunk, and he was uncovered and lay naked in his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, glanced at and saw the nakedness of his father and told his two brothers outside. So Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it upon the shoulders of both, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they did not see their father’s nakedness.

When Noah awoke from his wine, and knew the thing which his youngest son had done to him, he exclaimed, Cursed be Canaan! He shall be the servant of servants to his brethren! He also said, Blessed be the Lord, the God of Shem! And blessed by the Lord my God be Shem! And let Canaan be his servant. May God enlarge Japheth; and let him dwell in the tents of Shem, and let Canaan be his servant.  

Genesis 9:18-27 (AMPC)

Honour is to be given to those that are higher than you. 

Honour carries power. 

Fathers and masters are ordained by God not to downgrade others but to give opportunities to everyone to become. 

Fathers carry inheritance and destiny. They are a key to your access.

God builds His own thing. He does not come to build your own thing.

The mistakes of your father are not to be faced face on. They are not to be interrogated or questioned or talked about.

Every time you dishonour your father, you catch the spirit of dishonour. It’s you who will be dishonoured not your father.

When you honour your father, honour will come upon you.

Dishonour will make you become a servant where you are meant to be a ruler. It will make you unable to keep anything you have no matter how much you work hard. Dishonour destroys your opportunities to become.

The mistakes of your father are a platform for you to draw wisdom. If you dishonour your father because of his mistakes, the very same mistakes catch up with you.

Everybody has a weakness. It’s until you are at a place of leadership that they become exposed.

When you learn how to deal with your father’s mistakes, you put yourself in a place of elevation.

Familiarity breeds dishonour. What you become too familiar with loses value.

Sometimes God allows the mistakes of the father to be revealed for us to learn from them because of where God wants us to reach.

It’s the spirit of honour that carries you to your destiny.

The greatest battle of your life is the battle of devotion: how much you can give yourself and everything that is yours to the purpose of God by doing what’s right.

Honour is an act of devotion.

Every relationship falls or stands on devotion.

Every relationship is an exchange program.

When you have honour for your father, everything else about you comes with it.

Every interaction with people is about exposing you to you than the other person.

Everything you do in this life is a seed. Who sows much, reaps much. Whatever you release, does not leave you. It will come back.

God allows people to deal with and interact with you based on your assignment and destiny. God is the one who knows where you are going. The interaction can be positive or negative.

People who have honour do not stop doing what’s right because you can’t afford to shut your own destiny.

Jesus is constantly interceding before the Father, because He sees everything and He does not want what He started in His to be frustrated. 

Being a prophetic intercessor is interceding with the heart of Christ. You do not go talking about it but pray before God.

Honour is what brings promotion.

Your power is in your devotion and your devotion is in your submission.
