Biblical People: The Daughters of Philip

Philip, full of God’s spirit, is skilled at telling people about Jesus. He also has four daughters, who all possess the spiritual gift of prophecy. That is, they can accurately predict the future through the power of God’s Holy Spirit. 

The Bible tells us nothing more about these four amazing girls, but their spiritual abilities likely stem from their father’s faith and their own willingness to follow Jesus and be empowered by his Holy Spirit.

It’s a great tribute to parents when their children follow Jesus and even more so when he uses them in powerful ways.

How are we preparing our children and those we teach to receive and then use God’s supernatural power?

A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 1,000-page website to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and many books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
