Put on the whole armour of God

It has been said that there are three areas of life that affect all; Bob Jones called them, "Gold, girls and glory". It is a referral to the necessities in life that we are all susceptible to at given times and circumstances.  Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's The ...

Revival

Some encouraging news! I wonder if as we have prayed for a revival over the years, that God is going to answer in a way that will astonish us all! Revival is about God doing something with the Church, reigniting that faith, fire, conviction and ...

Elijah’s Mantle

There has been much talk in recent years across the charismatic church, about receiving the “mantles” of those gone on before us. In context, much of this originates from the story of Elijah and Elisha. As far as the prophetic ministry is concerned Paul Cain ...

The wonderful zeal

Do you have great energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of an objective - you should have! Its something we aspire to for all ages of our church without exception, the only hesitation is that we must take care to heed the warnings of Proverbs 19:2 ...

Interpretation of tongues

I found it interesting that when I looked up the subject of interpretation of tongues on the internet, that most of the explanations come bouncing off of the screen with a fair degree of legalism. It has to be said that rules and regulations grip ...

of sermons, poems & essays…

There is nothing predictable about prophetic exhortation, warning or admonition - prophets throughout history are poets, painters, story-tellers, dancers and can seem to be troublemakers! If we likened the life of the church (and indeed society)to an artist's paint-strewn canvas, it is full of colour, ...

Contend for it.

As a prophet, I want to lay a benchmark for others stepping out in authentic prophetic ministry that, at the heart of their ministry, is a major emphasis on the gospel. The reason being, as Paul says, "The gospel is the power of God for salvation ...

Guest post: Paul Cain

It was a stirring moment to be able to visit Garland in July with my associate, Dan Reise. The Lord has been doing so much for me in the last few years, and this certainly was a great blessing.  So many memories flooded my mind ...

Disruptive prophets

Prophets are disruptive. It's in the job description! King Ahab couldn't believe the audacity of Elijah as suddenly found him, exclaiming, "Is it you, you troubler of Israel?” Elijah, unflustered, had the full measure of Ahab, “I have not troubled Israel, but you have, and ...

Encountering the unexpected

Expect and prepare for the unexpected!  What a ludicrous idea! To even begin, you must have some idea of what the unexpected will be, but then it wouldn't be unexpected! The problem is you don't know if this unexpected event will be good or bad! ...

Waiting on God when you are in a rush

As I travel the world I have noticed a phenomenon about 'time' - every culture (and sub-culture) has a different approach to it. The one thing we have in common is, we all value time, but it's what we do with it that differs ...

The Irish Prophet

Do you know the Irish Prophet? Just over three years ago whilst in prayer the Lord showed me that I would meet an Irish prophet. Nothing more, just "you'll meet an Irish prophet." At first I wondered if it was because I either might not ...

Gifts of the Spirit

It would be remiss to talk about the Gifts of the Spirit without first mentioning the character forming Fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control - against such things there is no law. (Gal 5:22-23) At the ...

Having the final word.

People may forget what you say but sometimes remember accurately your last remark. The last word of the book of Acts in the Greek New Testament is the word akolutos. The word literally means “unhindered,” though many translations render it with multiple words. Others move ...

Trust God.

One of the major aspects of prophetic ministry is not so much calling God's people or even society to repentance, neither is it about prophetic utterance concerning the future, or even the heart-warming emotional aspect of an invitation to intimacy with God. It's about ...

Joel 2

In the excited rush to get to Joel's most famous prophecy (Joel 2:28-29) many people miss great encouragements that he unveils as he shares what the God of Israel has revealed to him. God's prophets and poets, authors and letter-writers share the same frustration. Word ...

Prophetic Code

Is there a prophetic code that somehow allows us to press in and to know the heart, mind, will of God? It would make things convenient! We live in a world of shortcuts; it's full of instant success, instant food, information and results. Has that ...

Amateur prophets

In a day of seemingly rampant fake news, amateur prophets are at large in the Church - and actually, it is brilliant news! One of the most encouraging gifts given to the Church by God is authentic, scripture-honouring, Christ-exalting prophetic ministry, and what a gift it ...

Pentecost changes everything

AD33 was a phenomenal year, unequalled by any other year in history. In the first few months of that year((citing the Gregorian calendar here - if viewed by the Jewish Calendar it is even more breathtaking!!)) astonishing miracles happened;
  • Ten men with the dreaded ...

Are teams the answer?

Much has been written about 'Team.' Our ability to work as part of a team has been understood to be critical as a factor of our success. Definition of Team: A group of people that work together toward a common goal. The Wonder of 'Team'! ...
