HOLY SPIRIT-FILLED FATHERING continued.
In Acts 2:17-18 says: “And it shall happen in the last days, saith God I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dram dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens, I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.”
May I suggest there is something wrong with our 21st century Christianity if parents do not have a vision for their sons and daughters to be filled with the Holy Spirit to see visions, to prophesy, and to experience miraculous manifestations of the Holy Spirit happening in and through their lives. Because young people are drawn towards the supernatural, if we do not teach them and open their understanding to the importance of being filled with the Holy Spirit to experience the miraculous in their lives, we run the risk of them delving into all types of divination and modern witchcraft which abounds everywhere.
Christian parents, we do not want our children to grow up in so-called Christian homes where we have a “form of godliness, but deny the power thereof” (2 Timothy 3:5). Our children deserve much more than dead, dry, Biblical doctrine that has no presence of God accompanying it.
Each one of our children need to see that our God still opens the eyes of the blind and causes the deaf to hear. They have a right to see that our God still heals the sick and performs miracles, signs, and wonders. He still raises the dead and sets the captives free.
Our children need to know what it means to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is still the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrew 13:8). We owe it to our children for them to see these things happening before their own eyes. How can they possibly stand before the intellectual atheism of this age if they do not experience a real encounter with the miraculous power of our God?
