What Not to Do With Your Prophetic Word

There are certain things you do not want to do when you receive a prophetic word otherwise it will become a “self-fulfilled” prophecy being accomplished in the flesh and not in the power of the Holy Spirit.

We need to have a balanced approach to the prophetic word we have just received and thus respond properly. Otherwise, we have a carnal effort to orchestrate the fulfillment of your prophecies outside God’s will, God’s timing and without His approval and this will be harmful to you and to others often bringing confusion and devastation.

The reason we tend to do the wrong things after hearing a personal prophetic word… Read more

Belarus March/April 2010

Belarus

I arrive home from the apostolic roundtable on Wednesday night and leave again on Friday – this time for the nation of Belarus. This is my first visit to this nation and it will be interesting to see what it is God will be doing during my visit there. I have wanted to visit this nation for over a decade and now the Lord has given to me the desire of my heart. I will be there by Saturday afternoon late and begin ministering Saturday night. I will return on the 12th of April arriving home mid-morning on the 13th. Inbetween – many, many meetings and opportunities to share God’s Word prophetically both in teachings to the assembled saints as well as in prophetic words over churches, leaders, and people.

On the Road Again

I like the song by Willie Nelson “On the Road Again” as it is my informal theme song. Tomorrow I am on the road again as I leave for Ukraine where I will be spending 2 weeks working with three different churches watching God do amazing things. I will come back to that comment. First, if you are praying and the Holy Spirit should lead you to pray for Ralph Howe Ministries here is where I will be and what I will be doing… Read more

Kazakhstan November 2009

Kazakhstan – Trip and Information

Today I head to the airport and fly to Calgary, Frankfurt, Germany and then into Almaty-Alta in Kazakhstan to begin a little more than two weeks of ministry returning on December 1st.

It is not going to be an easy trip as the rules and regulations in Kazakhstan are quite severe and certainly limit what we can do and where we can do it. In fact, I received an email yesterday from one of the team members which commented that “My friend from Denmark who does mission work in Kazakhstan said that for them it’s safer to gather pastors and leaders for training events in Turkey or Ukraine and thus not be caught and still be able to do some local underground ministry.” So, we are heading into a troubled situation and could certainly benefit from your prayers.

One More Sleep

Tomorrow I board a plane here in my city – fly to Calgary, Alberta where I will have lunch. Then at supper time I will board another plane and fly to Munich, Germany. There I will have breakfast which will really be supper. Then quickly on another flight to Moscow, Russia where I will have supper which is really breakfast. My internal clock will be a bit confused by the jet lag and the 9 hours dofference in time. It is even worse coming home but that is another story. Read more

Ukraine Trip August 2009

Ukraine Mission Trip – Day One August 13, 2009

We have worked for many hours over Four days (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) as time allowed and after three trips from the camp into the city of Feodosia we finally have the internet connected by way of Bluetooth and a new Ukrainian cell phone that has the right internal guts to be used as a modem to allow me to connect to the internet and emails no matter where I am … so we are now able to post current blogs regarding this trip to Ukraine as well as send answered emails (answered on the flights over) and receive email. Many thanks to Miroslav for service above and beyond the call of duty and several late nights…

The Blog…

Well, it is official. My body does not know what time it is and I’m not sure I do either.

Ukraine, February 2009

Direct Connections

Up at 6:00 a.m. and to the airport in my home city by 9:30 a.m. Coffee with some family members – actually I had a Diet Coke – and then I went through security screening and boarded the plane – with another bottle of Diet Coke.

Plane was late leaving as a bag had been checked and loaded and then the person who checked the bag was a ‘no show’. So, they had to unpack the majority of the baggage to find that person’s bag and remove it. Made us feel safer but also a little concerned as this meant we left to fly to Toronto 30 minutes late. The pilot did partially make up for lost time (regained 10 or so minutes) by going faster than normal. Helps with the connecting flights to be there on time or else you miss it and then you miss all the other connecting flights as well – finally not arriving when you need to. Read more

Ukraine, November 2008

Four Countries and Three Planes

Left home Thursday just after noon. Arrived Boyorka just after 6:30 p.m. on Friday evening. I’m being ribbed because on the trans-oceanic part of the flight I fell asleep for an hour. A whole hour. Wow! I travelled from Regina, Saskatchewan to Minneapolis, MN., and met up with my team there – Bob and Irene MacDonald from Saskatoon. Then a quick salad for supper (and gluten- free chocolate brownie) and off to board our second flight – 8 hours – Minneapolis to Amsterdam. A long walk covering a great distance in the airport (good to stretch after sitting -and sleeping – for so long. Then 2.5 hours from there to Kiev – capital of Ukraine. Read more
