The terms spiritual fathers and spiritual sons are grounded in scripture. Apostle Paul referred to both Timothy and Titus as his "spiritual" sons.
To Timothy, a beloved son....(2 Timothy 1:2)
"To Titus, a true son in our common faith.." (Titus 1:4)
Apostle Paul also spoke in the spiritual sense of having fathers in the faith "For though you might have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. (1 Corinthians 4:15)
But you know his proven character, that as a son with his father he served with me in the gospel. (Philippians 2:22)
True spiritual fathers have first learned to be sons themselves. This stage cannot be skipped, though many attempt to father without processing sonship in their own life.
It always shocks me when people attempt to live as spiritual fathers when they have a track record of resisting any fathering relationship for themselves. Prophet Charles spiritual father is Prophet Alph Lukau.
The importance of having a spiritual father is that it brings spiritual covering and protection.
One of the greatest benefits of being around a spiritual father is they help provide sanity and sound thinking by what they share, demonstrate and advise. At the end of the day, you know they have your back, so this empowers you in your own growth and ministry.
