Prophet Answers: Can Children Hear God’s Voice?

by | Jul 8, 2020 | Supernatural & Dreams

How do we know we are hearing from God? Many adults struggle with this question for themselves. But can children hear His voice?

Prophet Kent Simpson explores this topic in a recent episode of The School of Prophetic Knowledge podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. A dramatic experience he had as a child convinced him children can hear from God, and he says that’s why Jesus said, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me” (Matt. 19:14b, KJV).

Simpson says when he was 9 years old, he was spending two weeks at his grandmother’s house, 60 miles from his parents’. His parents called late one evening, he says. “And they were telling my grandmother they were coming to pick us up … But something really happened that night. Out of the drizzling rain, I heard God speak to me so clearly. And He told me that there’s going to be an accident, and it will be fatal. And He was talking about my parents.

“Now, this came to me by faith so strongly that there was no denying the fact that they were going to have a wreck,” Simpson says. “But I tried like everything to get my grandmother to let me talk to them. And she kept shooing me away … But as soon as she hung up the phone, I said, ‘Why didn’t you let me talk to him?’

“She said, ‘Well, they’ll be here in an hour,’ Simpson says. “And I said, ‘No, they won’t. They’re going to have a wreck.’ Well, she thought I was just nervous or tired. You know, she didn’t think too much about it.”

Simpson’s parents’ car was hit by a drunk driver, he says, and his mother was killed. For many years, he wondered, How did I know? But after he was baptized in the Holy Spirit many years later, he says, “I can understand now who this voice was that I’ve been hearing from time to time in my life.”

That voice was the Holy Spirit, Simpson says. And hearing from God has guided him over and over in his life, taking him from an entry-level position in banking to the presidency of the bank and beyond.
