I’m so excited to have a guest post from Mark Reid on the prophetic inspiration behind his worship album ‘Calling’. Mark has agreed to be one of the prophetic writers of our community ‘Prophetic Roadhouse’ and this is his first piece!...

Prophetic Integrity in a Political World

I’ve been procrastinating for months on writing this article because quite frankly I wasn’t sure I should write it. When is it right to speak? And more importantly what motivates us to speak up? These questions have been at the forefront of my mind....

Guest post – The Dark Side of Leadership

Forts and Bridges

Prophetic Delay

The Prophetic Delay Sunny but still cold The other morning my son Titus came bursting into my room saying “Mommy its sunny, its sunny.” I found it sweet that such things excited him. I got up and got everyone ready for the pre-school run. I looked out the window and...

Prophetic Hope – Advent

“And His name will be the hope of all the world.” Prophecy is supposed to have a positive effect upon us as Christians. The bible teaches that it injects life into our church, it encourages and builds up the individual. A prophetic word can also help us walk into our destiny. However, one of the most interesting impacts of prophecy is it’s ability to establish and solidify hope. According to Hebrews our faith is made up of ‘hope that is certain’. Therefore it’s vital that we have help understanding and believing what our hope is. What’s prophecy’s role? Prophecy brings visibility, colour and a vibrancy to the christian hope – it creates a little window into the future and allows us to peer inside giving us enough vision for that hope to become real.

The Seer

How do you hear from God? How do you sense what He’s doing? One of the ways the bible talks about people tuning into God’s heart is having a ‘seer gift’. In my time as a pastor (back in the day) I witnessed many people mis-understand this gift – thinking...

The Trustworthy Prophet

To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved. George MacDonald Lately I’ve been feeling a call from God  –  it’s not a new call, but more a reminder of an old one. Nonetheless it’s been strongly present in my thoughts and dreams...

I’m a Christian Celebrity – Get me out of here!

A couple of weeks ago I was spending time in the presence of God and I heard the Holy Spirit speak to me. He said in a strong internal voice, “there’s a bad smell in the house.” I began asking Him what He meant (hoping it wasn’t a personal word...

Imagine all the People

What does it look like to be a prophetic person? Is it really just about getting ‘words of knowledge’ on a Sunday and being part of the prophetic team at church? Is it merely for a few ‘mystical’ Christians, or is it for all of us?  These...

Prophecy’s not just for Christmas

In Britain we have a TV program called The Antiques Road Show. It’s been running since I was a kid and I always remember watching it on Sunday afternoons. The gist of it is that the hopeful public can come into some big old venue with their household items and...

Reformation

Will the reformers please stand up About a week ago in a private prayer time with the Lord, I had a picture of an hour glass. God’s hand came and turned the hour glass. Then I heard God speak in an internal voice and say; “Will the reformers please stand...

Truth Matters

  For quite some time now God has been speaking to me about the importance of truth. At the beginning of this year a few of my trusted prophetic friends believed that the Spirit of truth was on the move in the church and I was inclined to agree with them. Over...

Shareholders

The other night I had a dream. I was working for a church and the leader took me aside and showed me an architectural map of the church, this wasn’t a map of the church building but rather the ministries that existed. Then he told me that he had made me a...

The Overcomer

We’ve just made one of the most significant decisions of our family life so far. We are moving. From Urban Bristol all the way to Sunny California. It’s been on the cards for a while but we feel this is the right time for us to taste America as a family in...
