THIS SITE IS ABOUT GOD'S EMPOWERMENT TO HIS PEOPLE THAT THEY BE AS ONE IN UNITY AND IN SPIRIT. ( Joel 2:28 Mark 16 :17 )
On behalf of all our worldwide members I would like to welcome you to the New Prophecy Movement.
This site is open to all Christians with the view that the gift of speaking in tongues is relevant in today's modern Church.
Paul said. "Forbid not the speaking in tongues"
Why are we here?
According to one survey from an estimated 290 million Pentecostal and Charismatic churches, one third don't practice what Paul teaches - although few are willing to admit that. These frightening statistics reveal that the very essential hallmarks of Pentecostalism - Mark 16:17-18 have slowly eroded away leaving many to question:
"were has the public acknowledgement of Pentecostalism gone?"
It seems apparent that the neglect of spiritual gifts has made today's Church a lifeless institutionalized establishment.
So what is to be done?
Through this ministry it is hoped, that true believers will encourage church leaders to include more frequently the prophetic gifts in worship services- and to pray for those who are seeking this wonderful heavenly language.
Christians that walk in the Spirit are united as ONE.
Christians need to be aware that in these last days Christ's church needs a solid 'spiritual' foundation in warding off Satan's many devises. There can be no excuse for complacency. Christ expects a healthy vibrant Church where His chosen people are one in mind body and Spirit prior to His return.
This means that followers of Christ need to be in tune with the workings of the Holy Spirit if they are to maintain God's free gift of salvation.
Dear brethren my story begins in 1955 when at the age of five I was visited by an angel whose presents inspired me to tell my story.
It was during that time my mother taught me the ways of the Lord resulting in my being baptised at the age of twelve.
But it wasn't until my late teens when studying at the UPC Bible School that I obtained a position as youth Pastor in an AOG church on the NSW central Coast.
Prior to ordination, my first professional gig was on 3DB radio Melbourne singing gospel alongside Col Joye and Laurie Allan and alike.
Just as my radio career was starting to kick off, God called me into Billy Graham’s “Youth for Christ” and the Australasian Christian Broadcasting Association. It was there that I met up with a ventriloquist character named Elfie who became my side kick when performing on TV and in Church rallies.
Apart from singing gospel, electronics is my main interest ~from which I managed to invent a Music Machine for use as an educational tool in schools. This machine later became known as "Marshall's Portable Music Machine" ~named after Brian Cadd's 1972 hit song.
While performing at a Shopping Centre, a talent scout signed me up to be co-host of a children's morning show called the "Super Flying Fun Show."
This opened up my career to the NSW club scene and TV engagements such as; A Current Affair with Mike Willesee, The Graham Kennedy Show, and the Mike Walsh Today Show. I even had a gig with singer actress Eartha Kitt with Tommy Tycho's band at the Sydney Opera House and a slot with Rolf Harris at Westfield's Carnival Capers.
When the Music Machine had its day I substituted it with an animatronic Robot named Algatron. This real to life cheeky character made from house-hold items, was a hit in schools under the Science and Technology curriculum.
Interestingly enough, Algatron came to fame when as a mascot for the 1994 Canberra Science Festival, spilled water over science minister Peter McGauran's shiny new shoes in full view of a nationwide TV audience at Parliaments Grand Hall.
But now as I reminisce about those days I can see God's hand of destiny in the arts of music, theatre, and science ~ all of which necessitates critical thinking in my new love for religious apologetics.
Today I no longer perform in schools, but in Christian work-shops singing gospel and promoting my books. I have no particular religion, preferring neutrality when pasturing the new prophecy movement with its accompanying home gatherings.
In finishing I would like to acknowledge God as the author of my writings and my mother, know resting in the arms of Jesus, as my inspiration.

Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) was the first to acknowledge a change in the original TRINITY when researching patristic documents.
These commentaries by early church father's revealed much politicising that eventually lead to the demise of the original trinity hypothesis by the father of the Trinity —Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus, (c. 155 – c. 240 D).
Tertullian was a prolific early Christian author from Carthage in the Roman province of Africa and is the first Christian author to produce an extensive corpus of Latin Christian literature.
Tertullian’s Trinity was orthodoxy when defining Christ as: "numerically distinct and subordinate to His creator. "
But today according to Christendom Tertullian’s articulation of Christ is Arianism.
Truth be told, modalist posing as triniterians in retaliation to Constantine's Arian baptism, spread rumors that Christ's subordination to His father deemed Him, " more than a man and less than God!"
Apparently subordination was a hindrance when promoting the Maryology dogma.
As it stands today, the Trinity is a mix of Modalism, Theism, and Polytheism all perpetrated by Satan to demise the Father's Monarchy and Christ's office as teacher and comforter.
Every good leader’s strength is based on moral and ethical standards.
Scott Morrison (13/05/68) our current Prime Minister, was raised a Christian who later became a Pentecostal, and now attends the Horizon Church which is affiliated with the (ACC) Australian Christian Churches, the Australian branch of the Assemblies of God.
Morrison has shown the Australian public strong leadership, not only when advocating for religious freedom, but when handling the Corona virus epidemic.
“Tongues on Fire” addresses Brother Scott’s faith from an ethical point of view when focusing on his title as an Apostle.(Ephesians 4:11)
Overall "Tongue on Fire" addresses the beginnings of the ACC and the many controversies including the Liberal party’s influence on Brian Houston’s never ending pending case of harbouring his father’s paedophilia activities.
It may indeed be true that Pentecostalism is the fastest growing religion in the world boasting 89 million adherents. But the question begs: is quantity more important than quality?

The picture sign does pose the question: "why a hall and not a Church?"
According to the Jehovah’s Witnesses the Kingdom Hall is the true temple when worshiping Jehovah God compared to a normal Church who worship demons. (W.T May 2018" Know Your Enemy" page 24)
These religious supremacists have adopted Charles Russell’s Gnosticism when teaching that Christ Jesus is the Archangel Michael.
Although claiming to be liberated from past mistakes, the JW’s still hold to many occult practices including denouncing once cherished family members who don’t tow the line.
Laodicean Heretic addresses the JW’s formation beginning with Constantine’s dynasty down to the Adventist movement by Ellen White.
Religious ethics and apologetic's
A comprehensive study of Archangel Michael, who in 325 AD, became patron Saint to the first Christian Church in Constantinople. Saint Michael's godlike status was established when Constantine denounced Judaism's prohibition against appealing to angels as intermediaries. This allowed Christian Jews to venerate Saint Michael as healer, protector, and redeemer of their souls from Limbo to Heaven. Centuries would pass until Sabbatarian Ellen White used Michael's descriptor "Who is God" to formulate a dogma proclaiming Saint Michael as the Lord Jesus Christ. Today this dogma has become an integral part of the Seventh Day Adventist and the Jehovah Witness eschatology.
Tongues on Fire
Tongues on Fire are a must-read for those who want to experience the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the gift of speaking in tongues. Authored by Pastor Leslie Barnett who writes from experience having been involved in the 1970's “New Prophecy Movement”
Pastor Barnett’s story begins with 18th century evangelist John Wesley, who paid heed to visions and supernatural encounters that occurred in the lives of Methodists of his day. Throughout his life he gathered stories of how God was revealing Himself in the lives of His people, and gave much thought to their meaning.
The author explains; that when the Holy Spirit was being poured out with the speaking of tongues families were reunited, long-severed friendships reconciled and hearts flowed together in true fellowship in the Lord. And even more than that, along with the spirit of unity and love came the spirit of sacrifice and the wondrous spirit of liberty.
“But in today’s modern church tongues is considered unnecessary leaving many to question whether or not Mark 16:17 (the hallmarks to Pentecostalism) should be deemed ‘spurious’ in many modern Bibles. This has led to a noticeable decline in spiritual gifts among Pentecostal and charismatic worship services”— says Pastor Barnett.
Leslie explains how the New Apostolic Reform movement is causing a schism within the Assemblies of God churches prompting concern that this may emulate the second century Montanist movement when prophecy became presumptuous by self appointed apostles, prophets, and prophetesses.
Pastor Barnett exposes many who claim to be God’s anointed and dismisses the notion that a third wave outpouring of the Holy Spirit is very much alive due to the many ethical problems facing the Pentecostal church in our day.
To sum up the problem Leslie had this to say: “The very soul of Christ’s church, embodied in prophetic utterances, discernment, worship, healing, deliverance, and hospitality has slowly diminished leaving a lifeless institutionalised religion with highly paid works of men.” (2 Timothy 3: 1-3).
Of special interest is chapter seventeen were Pastor Barnett provides a spiritual explanation as to why Brett Peter Cowen was involved in one of Australia’s most horrendous crimes against Daniel Morcombe and how it may have been avoided. And in chapter twenty five how a couple survived 9/11 by obeying God rather than man.
Last but not least is chapter thirty three which is dedicated to “the Mysterious Messengers”-the angels of God, who have played a vital role in producing this work.
