Justice in the Anointing - David Mitts

"For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery for burnt offering; I will direct their work in truth, And will make with them an everlasting covenant.” (Isaiah 61:8 NKJV)

We have been living in the revelation of the anointing of God.  The Hebrew word for anointing is the same word used for Messiah.  Yeshua is the anointing; or, if you will, the anointed one.  When the Scripture speaks of being “in Christ,” it is speaking of abiding in the anointing.  So then, what is the anointing that He is, and that we abide in?
It is always a good idea when we have such a question to allow the Word of God to interpret itself.

In the letters of John the Apostle of Yeshua, He spoke of the anointing this way:
“But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.” (1 John 2:20 NKJV)
The anointing then is the source of “knowing.”   This means that the anointing gives us the Mind Of Christ about something.
A little further in the same chapter John adds:
“As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.” (1 John 2:27 NASB)
Wow! How powerful!  The anointing is what lives in us.  The anointing teaches us.  The anointing is truth.  The anointing is what allows us to abide in Him!
So, the anointing could be seen as our link-up to the Kingdom of Heaven and it’s link-up to and through us.
Yeshua, as the anointed One, declared of Himself in Luke 4:18:
When we read this, we see that the anointing is for a “because,” or for a purpose; a vision contained in the mind of the Lord that requires an intervention, which is the function of the anointing.  As one person said it, we have an unction (anointing) to function.
This scripture is a quote of Isaiah 61, which contains a full description of the anointing and the mind of Messiah in each area. Last week John looked at the double portion blessing which counters the attitude of shame!
“Instead of your shame you will have a double portion, and instead of humiliation they will shout for joy over their portion. Therefore, they will possess a double portion in their land, Everlasting joy will be theirs.” (Isaiah 61:7 NASB)
The anointing is the power to exchange shame for a double portion of the anointing, to exchange humiliation for joy!  This is not circumstantial joy which we call happiness.  Instead this is a transcendent joy that comes from the inside.  Happiness is from without; but true joy is from within, and so it is a quality of the abiding reality of the anointing. Listen to John’s message from last week online.
This week I want to look at the next verse, verse 8, of chapter 61.
“For I, the LORD, love justice, I hate robbery in the burnt offering; And I will faithfully give them their recompense and make an everlasting covenant with them.” (Isaiah 61:8 NASB).
This is another profound reality of the anointing.  Justice versus robbery in the olah.  What exactly is the burnt offering in our lives?  What does the distinction between robbery and justice mean?
Well, first let’s ask the question of “why was the offering burned at all?” What is fire in the offering process?  The Hebrew word for fire is “ESH.”  The Hebrew word for man is ISH.

Both words share 

So … man is fire with God added. When you bring a burnt offering, the burning removes the man and reveals the God in the equation.
Now the anointing reveals when there is robbery in the brunt offering and contrasts that with justice.  Robbery or violence is an attitude of the heart.  This is contrasted by Yeshua in John 10:10:
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10 NKJV)
Robbery is the domain of the enemy and it is an inside job.  When stealing controls our hearts, it means we will use the ends to justify the means.  Our motives are tainted by our desires.  We want something to happen so bad that we will do whatever it takes to get it.  The energy movement in this is towards us.
In the burnt offering, the energy movement is away from us.  We sacrifice our needs for God’s best.  So robbery in the burnt offering is when we lose trust in the anointing of God and put our trust in our own schemes.
God is always sifting the motives of our hearts.  The anointing is the inner voice in our heart that leads us.  The other voice is the voice of our past, which is rooted in the fear of failure or loss what the bible calls condemnation.
The only way out of our past, the way we “know” ourselves, is through the eye of the needle.  This is the anointing.  The anointing is the eye of the needle.  It is that precise place where God’s voice meets with our lives.
The Scripture tells us that the Lord loves justice.  Justice is ‘mishpatim’ in Hebrew.  The court is called the House of Justice, Bet Ha Mishpat.  This is the place where decisions are rendered when there is conflict.  Why would the Lord say He loves justice?  Isn’t there a cry in our heart for justice?  Isn’t that what alienates people from God?  Don’t people question, “how can there be a God with so much injustice in the world?”  God clears away all of the confusion when He declares that He loves justice. 
This means He is bothered by crime and injustice, even more than we are!  He loves justice!  He hates robbery in the offering!  This is a picture of perverting the way to God.  The offering is the pure worship. Robbery in the offering is the use of ministry for personal gain.  This is so easy to fall into.  God wants our offering, our worship to be pure!  The anointing is on pure worship.
What has happened with the industry called Christian music contains the potential for robbery in the offering.  Can you see it?
But it isn’t just the commercialization of worship.  It is also anytime we take advantage of our Christian witness to “steal” the glory from God.  We need to surrender our agenda to Him.
Then He promises in this verse that He will: “I will direct their work in truth.”  You see, God wants us to prosper.  But He wants to direct our work in truth.  The word truth is the word ‘emet’.  3 Letters, aleph, mem, tav.  Aleph is the first letter. Mem is the middle. Tav is the last.  This is the complete alphabet.  So, the Lord is promising to direct our work by His Word, His Truth.
This is a powerful dimension to the anointing.  It means He is literally promising to become our partner in work.  He cements this promise with the last part when He declares oneness in covenant.  The Hebrew is so beautiful here. Brit Olam.  An eternal covenant; an eternal circumcision of the heart.
The Lord is making our work His love, His truth, His covenant.  All we have to do is trust Him in that.
This means we turn from the robbery in the offering: our schemes.  Instead, we surrender it all to Him and listen for His guidance.

Activation: Faith works by love.  He loves justice.  Justice is relational.  People are just or unjust towards each other. God is always just.  We have to be in the Spirit to be just.  Today we are going to practice allowing Him to become our main partner in our “work.”
We are going to press in for a corporate word.  A corporate or a group word is just as easy as an individual word.  To review, you may be a visual person, what we call a seer, and you may see a picture.  Or you may be auditory and “shema,” or hear, a word for the group. Or you may feel something for the group.
One caution: God will NOT give you a corrective word in this setting. If you sense something like that, assume it is not God, and ask again for an edifying or encouraging word.
The goal here is NOT for you to minister to the group. Rather the goal is to practice hearing and delivering.  The goal is to build confidence in His voice, in the anointing.
Prayer: Dear Lord, in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, I come before your throne. I believe that Christ lives within me, and that I am washed by the blood. Not in part, but in my whole being. I now bring every thought of my mind and soul into captivity to the mind of Christ within. I will be open to be led by the Holy Spirit to receive a prophetic word from You for this group, my "corporate Church.” I will gladly share just what you show me, without adding my own interpretation to it. I will not doubt it, nor question it, I'll just be willing to give it. I am a believer, and I expect to receive. I thank You for giving me a word from the throne. Amen
Now, stir yourself up in the Spirit, however you have learned to do that. For some of you it is by speaking in tongues. Others it may be by being still. There is no one right way.  God knows your heart. He will speak to you.
Imagine yourself in the worship portion of a meeting in your local church. You feel you hear the Lord quickening something in your spirit for the church body as a whole. Will you have the faith to believe that you can hear accurately enough to be willing to share what you hear with the congregation? Will fear become a deterrent to your being willing to be a vessel for delivering a corporate word? Review the scripture in 1 Cor. 14:26, "What then shall we say, brothers? When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church." Do you see yourself fitting into this pattern as the scripture directs? How much more alive in the Spirit would our meetings and gatherings be if instead of coming together to get spiritually what we can from others, we all came together to share what the Lord had already given us for the benefit (overall strengthening) of the Body?

One word of caution on giving corporate words - if any of us are still harboring wounds that "need" to draw attention to ourselves, the enemy will try to work through our wounding to use this type of setting to draw to us instead of pointing toward the Lord and giving Him glory. This is the robbery in the offering we have spoken about. The safeguard to this is to always be willing to submit anything you receive for the corporate body to the church leadership and allow them to make the determination as to how the word fits into the flow of the service. Always resist using this type of word to direct the flow of the service or groups in the church unless the church leadership gives you release to publicly speak such a word (provided you received this type of word from the Lord to begin with).

Priestly Anointing - David Mitts

But you shall be called the priests of Yahweh,
you will be called servers of our God.
You shall eat the wealth of the nations,
and you shall boast in their riches. Isaiah 61:6  Lexham Bible.

God’s anointing is always with a vision and a purpose.  Not only does the anointing accomplish outcomes, like healing, deliverance, restoration and reconciliation but it also transforms the anointed ones, the Christians.  The nature of God’s power is transformative.

Listen to Priestly Anointing

This transformation process is connected to how we think. Not just what we think but actually the way in which we think connects us to the anointing of God. Romans 12:1-2

"Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."  Romans 12:1-2

The transformation is connected to the renewing of our minds which in turn proves the good and acceptable perfect will of God in our lives. Let’s look a few key words.

First the word “renew:”  This draws the picture of kind of a resurfacing or the renewal of a library book.  It seems connected to what is and refreshes it somehow.  BUT we are talking about something that transforms.  Let’s look at another use of this word so we can rightly divide the word of truth: Col 3:10-14

"and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him— a renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all. So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity."  Colossians 3:10-14

We can see here that the renewal is to a true knowledge to the image of the Creator.  This is transformation of thought.  Paul goes on and says the renewal changes our distinctions.  This instructs us to think from a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience.  Doesn’t this list sound familiar?  That’s right! The fruits of the Spirit. Our pursue in grasping the anointing has been to be fruitful.  Can you see how it is connected by scripture to our thoughts? So our transformation into who we ARE in Christ is by thought renewal!
A second word from Romans 12:2 that I want to look at is the word “Prove”.  This word means to assay or examine the value of something.

"Then the Lord said to Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from the heavens for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in My law or not."  Exodus 16:4

This links our actions to the word that is in us.  We live our beliefs, we argue our opinions. This is called our walk.  The Key to our walk is in what we believe to be the nature of reality in our hearts.  These core beliefs shape our thinking.  They are “being” behind our thoughts, the container if you will or the “isness” of our thoughts.

"For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. "Eat and drink!" he says to you, But his heart is not with you."  Proverbs 23:7

We tend to think of the scripture left to right.  Our thinking is our thoughts; they form who we are.  But looking at the literal Hebrew it is translated more like: “for as the gate of his soul is, so is he.”  There is a gate to our soul, actually at least 3.  There is the eye gate, how we see things; the ear gate, how we listen to things; and the belief gate, what allow to be real.  

The soul is best represented by the idea of who we think ourselves to be based on our life to date.  Now let’s look at our verse today connected with the mind of Christ in us being activated into the reality of God’s Word, what we are calling the doorway into manifesting the anointed life.

6But you will be called the priests of the LORD;
You will be spoken of as ministers of our God.
You will eat the wealth of nations,
And in their riches you will boast. (Isaiah 61:6 (NASB))

We are called “priests of Yahweh.  Called by whom?  By the anointing!  People will see the outcome but it is the anointing on the inside that calls us “priests”.  What is a priest and how do we activate the call into its fullness?

First, let’s look at the Hebrew. Priest in Hebrew is Cohen.  3 Letters Caf, Hey, Nun.  Two of these letters, Caf and Nun form the Hebrew word for “yes”.  Yes is an interesting word.   

Yes and amen are powerful together.  Look with me at 2 Corinthians 1:18-20:

"But as God is faithful, our word to you is not yes and no. For the Son of God, Christ Jesus, who was preached among you by us—by me and Silvanus and Timothy—was not yes and no, but is yes in Him. For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes; therefore also through Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us."  2 Corinthians 1:18-20
So the promises of God, in Him, in the anointing, are YES!  So a priest is one who is the carrier of yes with a letter Hei in the middle.  What does Hei represent?  It is the letter added to Abram’s name to become Abraham.  It is the letter added to Sarai to become Sarah.  It represents revelation of divine purpose!  The Hei transformed Abram from a person with the name father to the destiny of being the father of many nations.  The HEI word picture is of a man praising God.

It is the number 5 and represents grace.  It is the God factor in the equations of life.  The Hei is God’s addition His special ingredients, so our response is to praise Him and He in turn inhabits our praise.

So the anointing of being a priest of Yahweh means we bring Him into the equation with the yes, the alignment to His Word which brings strength and power!

This results in part 2, being called a minister or a servant of God.  The Hebrew word here is Sharat.  Normally we would see the abad. This means to work for someone.  Sharat however means to work out of love.  SO when we bring the yes to the equation we do it with such a presence of Him who is love and they know Him by our love.  This is the anointing of Sharat.

In this place we move to part 3, “You will eat the wealth of nations.”  The word wealth here is Chayil, which means the strength or might of nations.  At the tower of Babel God separated the nations.  Each nation or group of people has a unique strength.  This strength is their wealth.  What does it mean that the ones who bring the Yes of God also eat the wealth of the nations.  Well I think it is about the One New Man.  It is about the vision of last week, that the anointing brings strangers into the family.  There is a unity in the anointing that comes from the Glory of God.

that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me. "The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.(John 17:21-23 NASB)

There is coming a consuming of the strength of the nations that results in a new nation, the Kingdom of God.  It is through the communion of the body and blood of the Lord.  We become what we eat. In this case it is who we eat.  We come into a unity and that unity brings all the strength, the wealth of the nations into One.  The Queen of Sheba was a picture of this unity when she came to Solomon.  She brought the wealth of her nation in honor of Solomon and of God.

The fourth and final component of the anointing in this verse is the “boasting in their riches” or better “in their glory you shall boast”.   This is a picture of  what you thought was for someone else and not for you, now becomes your spoils of war.  This is a powerful picture of triumph over the enemy.  The “things” you had to yield  and give up for a season to serve the Lord, now become instead of losses to you, gain.  

For me and my family this speaks most powerfully in the area of family.  When we chose to receive Yeshua into our heart, or really He chose us to have the privilege of bearing His name, we lost a lot of family glory.  Suddenly and completely we became the outsiders, the aliens.  In the anointing though we have gained a new family, a new glory if you will that is closer in Him in many ways.  What have you given up for Him?  What seems like a loss, a point of sadness and longing will come to you in glory, in greater gain and honor.  That is the mind of God for you.

Activation:  God has deposited into your spirit, His Promises. The whole Torah is in our hearts. What we need to do is activate it into our thoughts and actions. So let’s activate the priesthood today.  Let’s activate the Yes.

I am an overcomer. Yes!
I am healthy! Yes!
I am rich in blessings. Yes!
I live in favor. Yes!

Reconciliation - David Mitts

Strangers will stand and feed your flocks, and foreigners will be your plowmen and vinedressers. Isaiah 61:5 (HCSB)

We have been over the past few weeks looking at bearing fruit in our lives, 30-60-100 fold. We know that bearing fruit is a result of the abiding life.

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. (John 15:4 NKJV).

The question is: what does the abiding life look like in practical terms? One piece of this tapestry is how we think in our hearts. Our “is-ness” is defined by the thoughts we have.

Listen to Reconciliation

For as he thinks within himself, so he is. He says to you, "Eat and drink!" But his heart is not with you.(Proverbs 23:7 NASB).

We looked at water and how our thoughts are imprinted into water molecules. Since we are over 60% percent water this gives a deeper consequence to our thought life. When we became born again, living water began to flow in our heart and it contains the living testimony of God who spoke into the waters, “Light Be”. Gen 1:3. The waters in our heart contain the living testimony of ALL that has spoken, speaks and will speak.

So we have access in our heart to the flowing reality of God’s thoughts. This is called having the mind of Christ. It is an accessibility to the higher spiritual life. Look at 1 Corinthians 2:12-16

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit (living waters) who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one. For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE WILL INSTRUCT HIM? But we have the mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:12-16 NASB)

This is the flow or living water that instructs us in the ways of the Lord. This is the anointing which we have been speaking of for the past weeks. It has not only content but objectives.

But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. (1 John 2:27 NKJV)

Isaiah 61 shows us the objectives and reveals God’s thoughts.

Isaiah 61 tells us the anointing brings good news to the poor. The anointing binds up the broken hearts. It sets at liberty those who are in captivity. It declares Jubilee, freedom from debts, physical and emotional. The anointing trusts that God is our avenger. The anointing is the power for great exchanges, beauty for ashes, joy for mourning, praise for heaviness. The anointing heals the bloodline the curse of generations past. The anointing has purpose and power and it reveals the heart of God for us, to be prosperous, healthy and exist as a peaceful soul.

By aligning ourselves with God’s thoughts in our hearts, it releases God’s power into our lives. Today, I want to look at the next part of Isaiah 61, verse 5.

Strangers will stand and pasture your flocks, And foreigners will be your farmers and your vinedressers. (Isaiah 61:5 NASB).

So, the question is what does it mean to have the outcome of strangers caring for our “flocks”? What does it mean that foreigners will care for our crops and tend to our vines?

This is a powerful part of the anointing, the Mind of Messiah. Remember this about good news or what we call the Gospel. The Good News is about reconciliation. Look with me at 2 Corinthians 5:17-21

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

(2 Corinthians 5:17-21 NASB).

Everyone quotes verse 17. We are new creations in Christ. In that newness, though, we have a destiny. Our destiny at least in part, is to bring about reconciliation. First and foremost is reconciliation with God. “God in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself”. BUT He has also committed to us the “word of reconciliation”. We are to be bridge makers. In that place we are ambassadors for Him. To the World, we are Him.

Let’s look through this lens at the “strangers shall pasture your flocks” and “foreigners shall be your farmers and vinedressers”. What I see here is an anointing for favor and reconciliation. This is a strong focus on having such an impact on stranger and foreigners that they become fully integrated into our lives.

This component of the Mind of Christ, the thoughts of God, is the perspective that to Him we are ALL His children. Strangers and Foreigners are distinctions like sick, poor, mourning, sorrows that arise out of a broken and sinful world. The anointing comes to abolish that bondage.

"It shall come to pass in that day That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, And his yoke from your neck, And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil." Isaiah 10:27

When we look at the Hebrew word translated as “stranger” it is a strange word, “zur”. Usually the word for stranger is “gur”. In this case, “zur” means a totally alien person, not just unknown but of a different breed, a different covenant, an idolater, an enemy.

This is a true picture of the unbeliever who is in a covenant with death. Zur requires 2 participants. First it requires the one who is unwilling to become part of the Kingdom of God for whatever reason. This person or persons rejects God as they understand this whole thing. This might be from a hurt or a wound to religion as they perceive the experience. Maybe all they have seen of God and His “people” is groups flocking to a building once a week, usually on a Sunday, and when they draw close to observe they all seem to have a set of good and bad behaviors. One Sunday group allows music another says music is sin. One Sunday group shuns the divorced and another everyone seems to have been divorced. The distinctions of “groupthink” vary with the group.

The other component of “zur” is those on the “inside”. For there to be an outside, there has to be an inside. The “insiders”, let’s call them the “elect”, the “chosen” ones treat the “outsiders” as less than. These unfortunate souls haven’t received the news. These 2 yin-yang man created realities bring about the condition translated as “stranger”.

The anointing of God comes to destroy this distinction. The irony is that the word that separates us: “Christian” means the “anointed ones”!! In the anointing, which flows as we align ourselves to God’s thoughts, we come into agreement that the walls we erected to protect ourselves from hurt keep us prisoner to the hurt, that anointing is a clarion call to unity, one people who reflect the heart of the One True God.

For the stranger to nurture our flocks, our most treasured families, they must become family. How do we move in this direction? Well the anointing helps us with grace.

Grace in Hebrew is the word Chen. In Greek, it is the word Charis, where we get the concept of spiritual gifts, the charismata and the concept of a quality of being that attracts people, charisma. The Hebrew picture is of a camp defined by an order and symmetry and declared beautiful. Beauty is the picture that fits the anointing the best. It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

In Biblical terminology or word phrasing favor is defined as one who finds a special place in the eyes of another. It is how love begins. We say Love at first sight. The way we see another determines our heart towards them! This is why Yeshua, the Love Master, said:

"The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. "But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! (Matthew 6:22-23 NASB)

Our perspective, how we see others determines how the anointing flows in our lives! It is no accident that these verses are in the middle of the teaching on mammon. We need to have a vision for our enemies through the eyes of love. How? It begins with a willing heart to go there.

Musicians and poets have sung and penned verses about such a world, with no boundaries and enemies living as family. A loving Father has no enemies in His children. We have to press in and profane the accuser spirit, the sower of discord among the brethren. We do that by walking in forgiveness.

4 key Areas to forgive:

1. Parents: Living or Dead. You must forgive them for every mistake, hurt, or wrong them committed and may still be committing. At the very least give thanks that they birthed you.

2. Close Personal Relationships. Spouses, close friends. These relationships can be so intense that when things fall apart, they tear at our hearts and we carry the scars of incomplete experiences full of pain. One key step to being free is to accept some of the responsibility. Victims never forgive. Release them and wish them well. Maybe write them a letter.

3. Clean your slate. Release anyone else in your life. Former bosses, crooks, ex-friends, fellow associates of any kind, mechanics, salespeople etc. Forgive them and wish them well.

4. Forgive yourself! You can’t really see others until you forgive yourself. Yeshua said this:

"Do not judge so that you will not be judged. "For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. "Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? (Matthew 7:1-3 NASB). The log in our eyes in our self-judgements. We need to forgive ourselves. The root of hating others in self-hatred. SO, let’s release ourselves and wish us well. Say to yourself: “God has paid the price for me with the life of His Son. I am worth that price! He is well-pleased with me and I accept that love!”

Now Let’s turn to our neighbor and pray a prayer of blessing over them releasing the Father’s
