Restoring the Congregation of the Lord
By Carl L. Fox and Paul D. Norcross
By Clement Humbard
This generation is destined to know by revelation and experience the Lord Jesus Christ more intimately than any before us. The Revelation of God is progressive, accumulative, and eternal. The inspired Word of God is settled, the Faith once delivered remains, the work of Calvary is once and for all finished, and the ministry of Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit continues upon this earth.
However, we seek and pray for the spirit of wisdom and revelation to know and understand the riches of His Glory, which is His inheritance in the saints, and be able to comprehend the breadth, length, depth, and height of the love of Christ (Ephesians 1:17-18; 3:18,19). The pursuit of God, the divine romance, the hunger and thirst after God and His righteousness continues. We don’t know it all nor have it all.
Christ stated that all would be revealed, known, and proclaimed, even the hidden things revealed unto ‘babes” (Matthew 10:26-27; 11:25; Luke 12:2-3). The neglected and/or unknown teaching presented herein by our brothers Carl Fox and Paul Norcross may well be included in His statement. There should, therefore, be no fear, or alarm, over unheard and unfamiliar scriptural truth of generational curses and blessings.
Jesus told His disciples they were not able to bear more revelation at that time, but the promised Holy Spirit would teach them, and guide them into all truth. The Apostle Paul, after writing the most complete exposition of the central truths of Christianity, which was:
- the Gospel of God
- the “Constitution” of Christianity
- the all inclusive widest possible designation of the whole body of redemptive truth,
declared that there was still a mystery to be revealed beyond that which the Romans already knew. Through this they would be established (Romans 16:25-26).
The indelible stigma of illegitimate births was present in Bible days. When Jesus was twelve years of age He went up to Jerusalem with Joseph and Mary to the feast of the Passover to register His Name and the name of his Father. When the days were fulfilled they returned not knowing Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem. (A twelve-year old boy could travel, as the custom was, with the men’s, or women’s group and they did not miss Jesus until they went a day’s journey.) Three days later He was found in the temple with teachers. When Mary, his mother, asked for an explanation, Jesus answered, “Knew ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?”
Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and God was His Father. During His ministry the Pharisees and the Jews belittled and mocked Him by declaring “where is your Father?”45 and “we are not born of fornication,” meaning that they were not bastard children like (they thought) Jesus was.46
The very process that satan would use to bring generational curses, God, in His infinite wisdom used, through the virgin birth of our Lord and His death on the cross, to break the curse and bring generational blessings. The Word of God declares in Galatians chapter three that Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law. This redemption is universal for all Christians, but it must be appropriated by faith, that the blessing of Abraham may come through Jesus Christ.
May the understanding brought by this book help to release much freedom and joy to the Body of Christ!
