- Numerous healing miracles—hips realigning, legs growing out, pain leaving.
- Many youths had Heavenly visions for the first time.
- Over 50 students baptized in the Holy Spirit—evidenced by speaking in tongues and prophesying. (See Acts 19:1-6.)
1 And it happened, while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples 2 he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” So they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.”
3 And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” So they said, “Into John’s baptism.”
4 Then Paul said, “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.”
5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
6 And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.
- Youths preached for the first time.
- Youths activated in leadership roles, and their God-given destinies.
Dawn and I were in charge of the youth ministry for the summer months at the church we have teamed up with in Virginia. The youth ministry has now ended, and it has been a great learning lesson.
As our summer progressed working with the youth, it was obvious to see how the devil desires to snatch them up. Young people are so easily influenced by their peers, media, and pop culture.
However, on the other side, youths have an amazing ability to encounter the Lord in spectacular ways. For the ones who got on fire for Jesus this summer, they seemed to be able to easily and clearly hear the voice of the Lord.
Many of them were able to immediately see in the Spirit, and see visions of what the Lord was doing. This reminded us of John in Revelation 4:1-2—
1 After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.”
2 Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne.
God revealed Himself in many powerful and wonderful ways to the youth this summer, in which we are so thankful.
