Angelic visitations, supernatural visions, and prophetic utterances are increasing for today’s younger generation. From toddlers to teens, spiritual experiences of young people are occurring in rising numbers. Today’s young people have an amazing prophetic destiny awaiting them.
One young boy named Matthew had been ill since birth. A constant infection seeped from both eyes and ears and wreaked havoc on his entire body. Six surgeries later, the cause of his infection was found. But it resulted in a bout of pneumonia that nearly took his life. Hanging on to a prophetic word that Matthew’s time was not yet up, his mom prayed for a total recovery. Matthew overcame the illness and has been rarely been sick since. But that’s only the beginning of the story.
Matthew was born with a cyst under his tongue. When he was two, a solid white mass had begun growing and needed to be removed. Surgery was scheduled. One day, his mom and a group of friends prayed for the upcoming minor surgery. The next morning, Matthew said to his mother, “My bumpy is gone.” He opened his mouth, revealing that the cyst was gone. Astounded, his mother asked, “Where did it go?”
Matthew told his mom about his night visit with Jesus. “Jesus asked me to open my mouth,” explained Matthew. “Then He took the bumpy and threw it away.” Matthew also said that Jesus held him, said that he loved Matthew loved him very much, and that he was special.
At a loss for words, his mom took him to the doctor, who confirmed the cyst was gone. In addition, there was no evidence of it ever having been there.
Within a few months, other details about Matthew’s night visitation with Jesus emerged. Matthew explained that when Jesus came he was accompanied by seven angels. “How big where the angels?” his mother asked.
“They were giants,” Matthew exclaimed. “They filled the room!” Matthew went on to explain that the angels were wearing white light.
When asked by his mother where they went, Matthew said, “They all went outside, and the angels floated Jesus up in the sky until they were gone.”
Wondering if could be just imagination, his mom questioned him again and again, but his story never wavered. Even at age four, and now five, his story has remained the same.
Matthew still sees angels, some with colors all around them. And Jesus still talks to him in his dreams. Supernatural encounters have become a normal, regular part of his life.
Matthew is part of the coming generation prophesied by Joel who will see spiritual treasures in front of them. At an early age, many will have a great spiritual awareness, which will increase as they grow and mature.
Parents will need to find ways to find a spiritual atmosphere that will fuel a child’s sensitivity to know God. May we take this responsibility seriously, guiding, teaching, and allowing our children to explore and grow in spiritual awareness.
