Brother Paul Cain

John Collins3/23/2012 8:18:00 PMAn interesting writeup on Paul Cain, the man who mentored and ministered with William Branham during the formation of the Latter Rain.

Here are some quotes from the article:

Quote:
Paul Cain, a prophetic legend and a living bridge to William Branham and the Latter Rain of the 50's, has now been revealed to be an alcoholic and a practicing homosexual. Ironically, this disclosure came at the hands of his fellow prophets who had elevated him to a super prophet status and who themselves endeavored to attain the lofty prophetic mantle of Cain himself. Bob Jones, a Kansas City prophet, himself discredited by sexual indiscretions in his prophetic practice, referred to Cain's prophetic ministry as: "the terror of the Lord" (AlDager, Vengeance is Ours, (Redmond, Washington: Sword Publishers), July, 1990, p.131).


Quote:
I am convinced that the fall of Paul Cain (who was recognized worldwide as the father' of this movement) is a symptom of a much wider disease.


Quote:
As always there were plenty of anecdotes and tales of angelic visitations, etc... But as far as a message that truly pierces and challenges and convicts- well don 't go looking for that in THIS prophetic movement!


Quote:
Between 1947 and 1957, the so-called "Healing Revival" led by Oral Roberts, T.L. Osborn, A.A. Allen, Jack Coe, and Orval Jaggers crisscrossed America often with large tent campaigns. Their nearly unbelievable stories were published in the pages of Gordon Lindsay's Voice of Healing magazine. William Branham was the central figire in this era. But he also became a catalyst for another contemporary Pentecostal Movement called the Latter-Rain. It appeared in Canada and was given the blessing of Branham who actually laid hands on the Canadian leaders of the Latter-Rain.


Quote:
Cain was mentored by and ministered with Branham.


Quote:
But for those of us who assert that the gift of prophecy is a gift for the contemporary church, we distinguish this gift from the abuses seen in the prophetic movement.
In the context of 1 Corinthians 14, the gift of prophecy is never seen as adding new truth (called "present truth" by prophetic movement teachers). The gift of prophecy, rather, is a congregational, impromptu, inspired word given to a congregation to effect, "edification, and exhortation and comfort" (1 Cor. 14:3) and 'the' word given to the congregation must be "judged". This "word" must pass the test of biblical and apostolic faithfulness.
