Why Young and Old Will Prophesy in the Last Days by MIKEL FRENCH for Charisma News
I believe the last four months have revealed the greatness of the church in America.
I believe this because of the prophetic words of Peter in Acts Chapter 2, as he recited the words of Joel: “‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy” (Acts 2:17-18, ESV).
Peter states that in the last days, God is going to use men and women of all ages as catalysts of faith.
We are seeing this passage come to life as He imparts a powerful vision to Spirit-inspired young people and dreams are being released by those who many believed were retired or their time had passed.
The key word I want to look at from this passage is “servants.” “Even on my male servants and female servants, in those days, I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.”
As we have watched tragedy, nightmares and drama unfold, the role of a servant has become the key to holding society together.
Three types of people are profound in influencing our culture today are stars, swords and servants.
We use the word “star” for personalities we admire. These stars exist in sports, the arts, politics and other areas of influence. These are people that remind us of greatness. Tiger Woods is known as a golf star. People call him a star because he can do things that feel magical, distant and out of reach by ordinary people.
