Train Up a Child Re-interpreted

Train Up a Child Reinterpreted
How many times have we heard the scripture from Proverbs 22:6 that says, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it”? We can quote it from memory. It’s probably one of the most familiar scriptures to parents and church leaders about our children. It brings great comfort to our hearts. But here is how the modern day Christian mentally interprets this verse:

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he becomes a teenager he may backslide, and go […]

Kids Who Heal the Sick

Kids Who Heal the Sick

Listen to internet radio with Raising Supernatural Kids on Blog Talk Radio
Early in my children’s ministry, I spontaneously began teaching what excited me about God. Somebody forgot to tell me they couldn’t grasp anything but Bible stories. I didn’t get the memo. As I spent time learning from the apostolic healing ministers, Charles and Francis Hunter, I taught everything I had learned to the children in my church. Healings began breaking out in the families of our church as the children prayed for their family members. It was my first exposure to kids who heal […]

What Are You Willing to Invest in Your Kids?

Do you see this family? Take a very close look. These people are Africans living in England. They came to our Kingdom of Light Conference two years ago (see photos of the KOL Conference). Their children were so spiritually changed for the better that the parents can still see the impact today. Because of this, these thankful parents decided to make a huge investment in the spiritual lives of their children. Once again this year, they have decided to journey to Bismarck, ND to take part in our family conference, “In Search of the Glory.” (For details click here.)
What […]

Did You Take Your Kids to Sunday School This Week?

How was it? Does your church have a really good children’s ministry program? How do you know? I mean really—–how do you know?

It’s a well known statistic that one of the top three things families looking for a new church home is the quality of the children’s ministry program. But the survey never asks the question, “What makes it a quality program?”
What makes your Sunday School a Quality Program?
We might guess–it’s own designated facility, well furnished and colorfully decorated with dynamic murals on the walls. Lively music. Plenty of teachers and […]

What is Radical Discipleship?

What does Radical Discipleship look like on our kids?
In our ministry we really zeroed in on creating opportunities for this generation to have incredible encounters with God. But according to the statistics, even some of the choicest Christian kids show little difference in conduct compared to their unsaved friends. It’s bad enough to hear this about the general population of Christian youth, but I began hearing very troubling reports about some of the young people who have been raised in a supernatural environment that are also succumbing to lifestyles at odds with their biblical upbringing—some we know can hear […]

Children Have Spiritual Authority over Demons

Spiritual authority was given to us by Jesus. He said, “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” (Luke 10:19) He said that spirits would submit to us in His name. The Bible is a book of spiritual warfare of all types.

So how close can we get to the spirits of darkness by entertaining ourselves with stories, movies, and games about them, and still walk in the kind of authority that causes spirits to submit to us? Do we lose any inner drive […]

Boy Heals Mother Through Taking Communion

I love the stories that come from our KIMI leaders around the world. We have a brand new work that has been going for less than a year in the little country of Latvia. Our leader, Daina, recently sent me this testimony of a Gypsy family who all got born again. The children have been attending her PowerClub.

She wrote: “One day mother felt really ill. Her sons came in her room and realized that something is wrong. They both prayed for their mother. But she was feeling worth with every passing moment.

Their father was at work on that day. […]

Charlie, Charlie, Are Filling a Void?

I have said for years that kids, by God’s design, are hungry for the supernatural, and they can find it everywhere but in our churches.

Recent generations have grown up on media that made magic, witchcraft, and the paranormal the focal point of kids’ entertainment. Young Christian friends of mine, who do their homework before buying popular video games, tell me it’s almost impossible to find any that don’t suddenly introduce some form of magic by the third and fourth levels in. It’s just become normal. It’s everywhere. We don’t even think about it anymore. But, of course, since it’s […]

A Tribute to My Childhood Spiritual Mentor

I want you to meet my very first godly, spiritual mentor (outside of my parents) that I believe God put in my life. Her name was Violet Nichols. We called her “Sister Vi.” Sister Vi worked for J.C. Penney’s as a sales clerk. She had been divorced three times, and, let’s just say, she really needed Jesus in her life. One of the faithful members of our church who worked with her timidly invited her to church one day, and much to everyone’s surprise she got saved!
Saved to the Uttermost!
And I mean she was saved to the uttermost! (Hebrews […]

A Wave of Child Preachers in the 1940s and 50s

One of the most famous women in Christian history was an evangelist, preacher, faith healer named Aimee Semple McPherson. Also known as Sister Aimee, she was a Canadian-American Los Angeles–based evangelist and media celebrity in the 1920s and 1930s. She founded the Foursquare Church. I could say so much about Aimee, because I have studied her life over the years. She is an inspiration in many ways, a forerunner, and spiritual pioneer in dozens of ways.
She Promoted Child Preachers
But one of the most significant things Aimee did was promote and celebrate children in ministry. During the years she was in […]
