Sid: We want everyone everywhere to have a revelation of Father God, we’ve had the revelation of who the Holy Spirit is and I’m so grateful for that revelation. We’ve had a revelation of the name of Jesus who Jesus the Son of God is, and I’m so grateful for that revelation. But the world is ready to receive the final revelation, Father God. And Hank Kunneman has a brand new book just literally just off the press but the thing that goes with it the 3 CD set, that’s 3 CD’s, in which he teaches on this subject and the book… everyone that I know has had an imperfect father. Why, because they had imperfect fathers. And Hank had an imperfect father, his father did the best he knew but he was like my dad. As kids you just crave to have a father say “I love you.” His father and my father never said “I love you.” So he gets physically kicked out of the house, thrown down a set of stairs, no money, nowhere to go but God gives him a place to live and he’s lonely. But then many years later his stepdad develops stage 4 cancer, no hope, dying. Hank asks his dad if he can have Richard Roberts pray for him. Now I had him share that on yesterday’s broadcast but we had ran out of time I want to pick up just from yesterday’s broadcast right now as Hank shared when he started telling his father that he has a friend if he prays for him he believes he’ll be healed go ahead.
Hank: I told him I said “Dad I have somebody who has a healing ministry that can pray for you and has a healing ministry. He looked at me raising one eyebrow and I said “His name is Richard Roberts he’s the son of Oral Roberts. My dad said “Well I know who Richard Roberts is he said “You know them.” I said “Dad they’re not giving you a lot of options with the doctor. Richard was kind enough to call my dad, prayed for him.
Sid: Well Richard from what I understand has a major anointing for things like cancer. Did you know that at the time?
Hank: No, I didn’t know it at the time.
Sid: Okay, go ahead.
Hank: He’s having a great success rate but my dad ends up getting healed but here’s what’s even more beautiful. Richard Roberts leads my dad to the Lord. And my dad gets saved and gloriously turned around and the words I’ve always wanted to hear my dad starts saying not without me prodding him, not without me saying “You know dad I love you” and then saying same here.” My dad would look at me in my eyes and say “I love you.” And he would start writing me letters and at the end of the letters he would say things like “I love death.” And again Sid it’s very hard for me I haven’t really shared much about this before and so my dad wound up really just a few months ago going home to be with the Lord. And before he went home to be with Jesus I knew that when one of the prayers I prayed. And the people listening to me today if they’ve had a horrible upbringing or maybe they’ve had upbringing where they’re saying “Can God save my relatives?” And I say “Yes, He can.” And I prayed to God and I said “God don’t let my dad part this earth until I know 120% that he is saved.” And my dad sits up and said “I never used to believe in these miracles, I never used to believe in these supernatural stuff but I do now. And he said “I guess hell’s got quite a bit of ice hanging from it doesn’t it. And I said “How do you know that?” And he said “Because of my own life” and he began to ask me questions about heaven and what heaven would be like. And he apologized to me about some of our confrontations and how he treated me. My dad went from a very hard military man who grew up without really a good example of love in his own life, to now loving his son like he’s always wanted and he began to receive Abba’s love and began to show it.
Sid: Okay, how about your Mom, did she come to the Lord?
Hank: Yeah, my mom is gloriously saved, Spirit filled, serving in a church. In fact even my dad, you know this is so amazing Abba changes people’s lives. My dad became such a loving affirming tender man because of Abba’s love working in his heart. He began to watch us on Christian television my wife and I our program. He began to watch our live stream services at our church and he was so excited to watch and move with the Spirit of God. And so…
Sid: You know I think about how the devil had you so sabotaged that I don’t even know how you even had the faith to believe that your father and mother would be saved. But you know what Hank? If God could do it for you and he’s no respecter of persons, what could He do for the people listening to us right now?
Hank: In fact I hear the Spirit of the Lord say “There are some that are saying even at this moment and even at this time ‘God what about me, do You see me Lord, do You know my situation?’” And the Lord would say “Even as the Son of God had compassion upon the people for they had nothing to eat for 3 days and so it was that there was a multiplication and there was an increase of the loaves and the fish and it was distributed to the multitudes; and so Abba would say through the Spirit today that there is an increase, there is multiplication and blessing coming to those who felt as though they had been forgotten that they are not being provided for.” The Lord says “Watch now and see for Abba is gathering His people in this day and in this hour to Himself to bless them; and so watch sudden surprises, watch things that seemed to be held back and even the Spirit of delay being broken for watch and see the greater blessings begin to come for God has calling His people through Abba’s love into a greater season of blessing, of increase, and of multiplication.” And so the Lord says “Open your heart and receive the love that now comes from your Abba.”
Sid: My goodness I sure can feel the presence of God on that prophetic word. But Hank Galatians 4:6 is where you got the title of your book “My Heart Cry’s Abba.” Tell me what does Galatians say and what does that mean?
Hank: It’s interesting because in that very moment after Adam sinned and Eve God had a plan to rescue His sons and the moment we call out to the Messiah and we call upon Jesus we are saved. The Bible says the Spirit immediately reconnects us to Abba and the Spirit cries out “Abba, Father” And that word literally means with a great cry almost like a scream loudly He reconnects our spirit to our heavenly Abba.
Sid: Hank I use a word on my radio show Mishpochah which is a Hebrew word, it means family, you say in your book this is the whole thing God is up to, explain.
Hank: When God spoke these words “Let us make man in our own image” we often said “Well that’s an image of you know we look like God. But I think it was something more than that, I think it was just the image of a human or an image of a man because I’ve seen angels okay, they look like us. Here’s what I mean it was an image of a family. If you look at Proverbs 8 you can see where it’s talking about wisdom. It’s talking about the Son of God being right there with the Father creating. So God was saying “Let us make a family in our image with Father, with Son, with children filled with the Spirit of God.” And I believe that is what the enemy has gone after, he’s tried to divide homes, he’s tried to create you know situations to where the father’s disappeared, or they’re harsh, they’re not there. And he tries to bring abortion, he tries to redefine marriage, and so that’s why there’s such an attack on this image that God spoke and He desired when He created Adam and Eve.
Sid: So in affect the satanic strategy is if the world and the devil can destroy Mishpochah, family, and even Christian homes are being attacked in their families the world is attacking the family because that’s the heart of God at this moment. What hope could you give a Christian family where it’s divided; some children have gone into humanism, others have rejected Jesus, others are into drugs and the worldly lifestyle. What hope can God give this family?
Hank: The hope that I give that are listening Sid is the very hope that I have been sharing all week if God can save my dad, my mom reach my family and all of the different things that I had to face He can save anybody’s family. And here’s what I did, I kept praying to Abba calling out to Him for my family and here’s another thing I did I invested into other people’s family as a way of saying God if I will reach other peoples family then Lord You are going to reach my family. So I want people never to get discouraged, never to give up and believe that you are in a situation, or your family is too far gone or too far to be touched and reached by the love of Abba. And I like something too Sid, Paul prayed this prayer he says “I bow my knees before my God and my Father of the Lord Jesus Christ in both the family in heaven and earth is named.” We are one big family and God is about the family.
