Prophets Promoting a Prophetic movement

Steve Shultz says:  "The Unknown Prophet" is probably the single fastest-selling book we've ever carried. We just keep running out of it!  We have just gotten restocked with copies of "The Unknown Prophet". Steve Shultz THE ELIJAH LIST

 PAUL CAIN SAYS: "'Unknown Prophet' Truly Reflects a Union of the Word and the Spirit"

This book is a prophetic work for our time. 

The Journal of the Unknown Prophet is one of the few prophetic books that I have read that truly reflects a union of both the word and the spirit. Both the spirit and the content of the journal's prophecies are faithful to the scriptures and I found a great deal of divine encouragement and guidance in these pages. 

I believe the prophecies not only to be true but also to be relevant for our times. The beginning of the Last Days ministry is already here. A cataclysmic outpouring of the Holy Spirit has begun. We are already seeing great signs and wonders. We are beginning to see God's judgment upon his own house. We will soon see stadiums all over the world filled with spiritually hungry people pursuing god, and he will reward their pursuit. His judgments will purify his bride and make her more attractive than any other time in history. The journal reveals to us some of God's intentions as to how he will accomplish this.

Among the many others who endorsed this book are Colin Dye, Senior Pastor, Kensington Temple, Stephen Hill, Rick Joyner - Founder, MorningStar Ministries, Rodney Howard Browne - Founder, Revival Ministries International, John Paul Jackson Streams Ministries International, Francis Frangipane, Senior Pastor, River of Life Ministries, John and Lisa Bevere.

 Some thoughts on this. 

The beginning of the last days is known by the main sign Jesus gave, deception, Jesus said "see I have told you beforehand." We are not in need of a modern day  prophet (who is called a prophets prophet) or prophetic movement to tell us this. Is the spirit being poured on all flesh? Hardly, we are seeing another spirit in operation.

I have not read this book but I can speak on knowing what the  true prophets of the Bible have said. These are the prophets we need to hear from, not new ones that are recommended by those in the prophetic movement.   

I want to share something that may give insight on all this. Paul Cain wrote me personally a few years ago to first thank me for my latter rain article and the explanation in it.  He had told me he was not well and was going to travel to Hawaii and would like to get together and explain the unfortunate way in which he had presented messages using phrases that could only be discerned as "Latter Rain" theology. I discussed some issues that he brought up. 

I waited numerous months, unfortunately this never materialized. So I asked him some questions by letter to try and straighten out his not believing in the Manifest Sons of God teachings/past or present. I volunteered to help him get this message out that he never taught this in his ministry. He declined any help. I was told he would send a tape to show me his position, I never received it. He stopped writing. Needless to say I was at first hopeful something would good would really take place but then sadly disappointed.

About a year after he wrote me again thinking I was someone else wanting to get in tough with another ministry to smooth out the  misunderstandings on what he believed. When I picked up the conversation where we left off  he continue to deny his statements. I then sent him some of the quotes of what he said, this stopped our dialogue. There was to be no advancement to what he proposed to me according to his first letter. 

Here are some of the quotes "For quite a while I have been embarrassed to say anything about the latter rain, because you are associated and identified with something that people don't seem to appreciate in certain evangelical circles. So I have played it cool and haven't said much about it. But I don't care what they think any more... I believe we are going to have the latter rain and I am looking forward to it." (Paul Cain, Toronto church on May 28, 1995) 

"it won't be this baloney that we've heard of in the past; I mean, there's been a few people tried to walk through a wall like this over here and knocked their brain loose, but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about a true manifested son of God: if anyone walks through this wall over here, they're not going to tell you about it- I mean, they're just going to do it. And sons of God don't tell you they're sons of God, they'll just show You! Amen!"' (Paul Cain, The New breed).

So after waiting a few years and hearing that he has wrote similar letters to others ministries saying he said things a wrong way I felt it necessary to let people know where he still stands. Now, lo and behold he is promoting this persons  book which teaches what he has.

Does the Bible say there will be a outpouring of unprecedented proportions for the church? Not even close. What it does say that in the tribulation this will take place, and the gospel will be heard mostly by 144,000 Jewish evangelists where in revelation 7 a great number of people are save during this tribulation period. This takes place as the antichrist (remember him who many no longer  believe is coming)        persecutes and kills the believers. That is the reality of the Bible. What latter Rain adherents have done is bring the revival  before the tribulation when the Bible says there will be a falling away from the faith first -- not a revival. They apply specific promises to Israel and tribulation saints  to themselves today. Just like the word faith teachers take promises for the millennium and apply them today.  

To this day Paul Cain has not publicly changed his position despite what he wrote me. We can see from his endorsement of this book Unknown Prophet. He is Latter Rain as all almost unanimously all the prophets in the prophetic movement today.

 Now for some further news 

In a special letter sent and posted on Rick Joyner's Website we find this excerpt:

“In February 2004, we were made aware that Paul had become an alcoholic. In April 2004, we confronted Paul with evidence that he had recently been involved in homosexual activity. Paul admitted to these sinful practices and was placed under discipline, agreeing to a process of restoration which the three of us would oversee. However, Paul has resisted this process and has continued in his sin. Therefore, after having exhausted the first two steps of Matthew 18:15-17, we now have a responsibility to bring this before the church.”

With our deepest regrets and sincerity, Rick Joyner Jack Deere Mike Bickle (www.morningstrarministries.org/pages/ special bulletins/oct19.html

We too are deeply saddened to see this occur. My heart goes out to Paul despite our great differences. This is what happens when we allow false teachers to continue.  I do want to zero in on the why?

Paul Cain the father of the modern prophetic movement was one of the last living connections to William Branham and the Latter Rain movement of the 50's is now is known among his own prophets as an alcoholic and a practicing homosexual. Yet as he ministered it was not revealed to one prophet what he was doing or in his heart. Could it be their respect for this man prevented them from knowing, or was it simply that God was not revealing this to them.

Could his sins be attributed to what revelation he had? Being prevented to marry? Could his gifting (of psychic ability) weighed on him that he began to drink? These are questions that only Cain can answer

Joyner goes on to say “We apologize to the body of Christ for our lack of discernment in promoting Paul’s ministry while he had these significant strongholds in his life. We failed to see them until this year.

It is also a mistake to assume that others who were close to Paul or worked with him shared these same problems.”

It is not a mistake to understand that these men are not as gifted as they present themselves and failed

Apparently there were two versions Special Bulletin by Rick Joyner, Mike Bickle, and Jack Deere

October 19, 2004 posted on Apologetics Index entry on Paul Cain - 
http://www.apologeticsindex.org/c06.html it also says “In February 2004, we were made aware that Paul had become an alcoholic. In  April 2004, we became aware that Paul is a practicing homosexual.”

We also want to apologize to the body of Christ for our part in promoting  and elevating Paul’s stature in the church while having these significant strongholds in his life. The signs that these problems existed were 
abundant, and we had an obvious lack of discernment and failed to see them until this year. We have received a considerable education through this situation, the principles of which we will share in due time with the hope that others will not have to make our same mistakes.”

As honest as this is it shows a lack of a number of things least of all the gift they all claim to have and use daily. This certainly makes Bickle, Deere and Joyner look like they are doing their duty, or does it? This is more than a lack of discernment. I want to point out that Joyner and others are calling themselves prophets but they missed this as do they numerous other things. The prophets all missed it, yet they were the closest to him and could not notice any change. What is one to think of a prophetic movement that cannot be prophetic? I’ll leave that decision up to you.
