“Spiritual Mentors and Leaders Emerging”
Elaine Tavolacci, Staten Island, NY
Mentors for the Next Generation
The other day, the Lord showed me a picture of a lioness nursing her cubs. I understood immediately that He was showing me He is raising up women, as well as men, to be mentors to the next generation. Some of you are being groomed for ministry to nurture the younger Believers into the calling that the Lord has for them.
Those of you who are grounded in the Word, who know how to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit, and are able to discern that which is spiritual from that which is carnal, will mentor these young cubs. To those of you who are in your “golden years” the Lord has not forgotten you. You will release the wisdom and revelation that He has imparted to you to the younger generation.
Hebrews 5:14, “But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”
Lioness and Cubs
After I received this word, I did a search on the lioness and her cubs. The cubs will eat meat after a few months, but remain dependent on the mother’s milk for up to two years. The mother protects them, as they are vulnerable to predators and other lions who may also be a threat. The lioness will fight back when anyone tries to attack her cubs.
I also came across a story from last year about a lion that was found nursing a leopard cub. Observers said that it seemed as though this lioness’s aggressive instincts had taken a backseat to her maternal ones. Lions live in groups called “prides” which means that this leopard cub would need to be welcomed into the lion pride after it matures.
The Lord showed me something interesting as I read about this story. There are those of you who will also be mentoring others who are outside of the lion’s pride. They will come from other tribes and you will welcome them, take them under your wings, and counsel them.
1 Corinthians 2:4-5, “And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.”
Training for the Assignments Ahead
Jesus is looking for mentors who will reach out and rescue those who are in desperate situations, because they know what it is to pay the price as they have overcome much through grueling trials. They are mature Believers who will train and equip the young ones for their assignment ahead. They will explain the battle plan and teach them how to be tenacious in spiritual warfare and how to be strong and very courageous.
They have been more than conqueror’s in every battle and will train others to be the same. They will encourage them to pursue the plan and calling on their lives and never retreat in battle. They will teach them how to walk and train them how to be led. They will teach them when to war, and teach them when to stand.
He is looking for those who will help them to discover their purpose for their lives. They will not mentor from natural knowledge, but they will teach what they have learned through divine revelation of the Word of God. They will advise them on righteousness and teach them to live with clean hands and a pure heart. Demons tremble at the sound of their voices because they carry an anointing and understand their covenant rights.
He is looking for the prophets to teach the younger ones how to be used in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. To show them how to be used in miracles, signs and wonders with respect and reverence of the anointing on their lives. They are those who know their authority in Jesus’ name. They will be those who mentor not only through sound doctrine, but in wisdom and love. They will mentor not just with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and in power.
Matthew 28:19-20, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen.”
