When the prophet Joel was in the spirit and prophesying the word of the Lord in Joel chapter 2, He said in the days to come God would pour out His Spirit on all flesh and give visions to young men. Why is it that visions were not given to other people but to the youth? That’s because it’s the youth who are energetic enough to run with God’s vision. The youth are vibrant, alert and will move when it’s time to move. Most of the revolutions, victories and revival in history were started or powered by young people. The young are fire power in the hands of a good marks man.
In these last days God has placed His burden heavily on young people and that’s why there is a great reason for this ministry to stand. We at LORM we are determined that the fire power of young people we have will not be exploited by Satan but will be used in the kingdom. God has, is and will always be in the business of using young people in His arsenal.
We thank God for saving power towards the Youth, whom he has chosen Believing that God is going to use this ministry to touch the lives of multitudes of young people. Their passion is to reclaim this
generation for the Kingdom of God. Its to a great advantage that the youth are saved in order to get guidance and avoid the mistakes that might follow them in their old age (Job20:11), (ps25:7)
