First of all I would like to take the time to thank, Tony for encouraging me, and Prophet Chris De La Rey for standing with me during my study on Prophecy. Thank you for helping and teaching me that I may share this the Gospel with the world.
Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
And it shall come to pass 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 dream dreams:
We all know the story of Joseph in the bible; Joseph was the 11th son of father [Isaac] and was sold by his brothers.
5 Now Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it to his brothers, and they [d]hated him even more. 6 He said to them, “Please listen to [the details of] this dream which I have dreamed; 7 we [brothers] were binding sheaves [of grain stalks] in the field, and lo, my sheaf [suddenly] got up and stood upright and remained standing; and behold, your sheaves stood all around my sheaf and bowed down [in respect].” 8 His brothers said to him, “Are you actually going to reign over us? Are you really going to rule and govern us as your subjects?” So they hated him even more for [telling them about] his dreams and for his [arrogant] words.
Joseph was in jail and he interpret dreams, I always wondered about HOW DID THEY DO IT!!!
How did they learn how to interpret dreams? Did they go for classes? Did they go for dream interpret classes? What I am getting is this.
They learned how to interpret dreams because they were raised in a family of dreamers.
Josephs great grandfather was Abraham, according to Genesis chapter 15, God gave Abraham visions and dreams. Abraham had Isaac is son and Isaac had dreams, visions and spiritual encounters and Isaac had Jacob who was Jacob who was Josephs father and Jacob had angel visitations, dreams and visions and trances.
What I am getting here is that is that it started with Grandpa Abraham you see the most spiritual place on earth should not be a church building it should be your HOUSE.
What would happen if your children were raised in a house of dreamers? I want to inspire you that is says about Samuel, when Samuel was a boy he heard the voice of God before he knew God (1 Samuel 3:7) before he knew God he was already interacting with a God he did not know! My point is that your kids can get to know the voice of God before they even have a born again experience.
We need to inspire our kids with the word of God with the things of God. Proverbs says train up your child in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it. The point is that you should train up your children in the way that you should go and not the way you think they should go the way they should go.
We are no longer after the flesh but after the spirit. We all see these things in the bible and wonder how did they do it? I think it is best if we start at home. Here are a couple of suggestions on how to start dream prophecy and even prophecy at home:
- Value your children’s dreams (ask them in the morning if they had a dream, pray and ask God to give your child a dream. What are you creating? Expectation is the fruit of faith. Faith is the highway where all spiritual things flow on. You are creating anticipation that God actually speak through dreams and visions
- Expect them to hear from God (ask them” if Jesus walked in the room right now what would He say?’’) That is the easy way to teach prophetic ministry. What you are doing is say, you should think like Jesus. You are also teaching them that they have encounter with God.
- Include them in ministry, teach them how to pray for the sick, it is important that your kids have a Holy Spirit experience.
- Expose your children to miracles (Share super natural stories in your home)
I think it is time that we bring Grace back into our homes, it is time to bring dreams and visions back into our homes, it is time that we stand up and teach our children the way way should go that when they are grown up they will not depart from it!
