Happy Reformation Day! Today, we want to celebrate not just one, but two really special events.
Many of us know that on Oct 31st, 1517, German monk and scholar Martin Luther set in motion the first Grace Revolution (since the time of the Apostles) when he nailed his Ninety-five Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany.
In a time when church tradition demanded that Christians pay for their salvation by their own works, his theses marked the beginning of believers all over the world rediscovering the true gospel of Jesus Christ—which declares that we are saved and justified by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
As we commemorate Reformation Day, let’s take a moment to truly honor and appreciate our Lord Jesus for all that He accomplished at the cross for us. Because of Him, you and I can come boldly to the throne of grace and find grace in time of need (Heb. 4:16).
Interestingly, something happened on Reformation Day on October 31st, 1992. A prophetic minister, Paul Cain, held an event at the National Indoor Stadium in Singapore.
During the event, Paul Cain called out a young man from the crowd, asking him to stand. He prophesied over him, declaring, "The Lord said that you are going to be one of His fiery evangelists."
That young man was not seated in the front section with all the other pastors and leaders from various churches in Singapore. He was just an ordinary attendee seated somewhere in the crowd.
And yet, he was singled out by the Lord through Paul Cain.
That young man was Pastor Prince.
We thought you might want to watch the prophecy that was spoken over Pastor Prince that night, and so we’ve included the full video together with this post.
While it was witnessed by thousands of people who were present at the stadium, none of them could have imagined how the Lord would raise this man, whom we now know and love as our beloved pastor, to be such a powerful voice for the gospel of grace in our generation.
Likewise, we want you to know that you have a purpose, calling, and mission that only you can fulfill.
Even if this has been a very difficult and challenging season for you, hold fast to the promises and prophesies that have been spoken over your life—and may you fulfill your great and wonderful destiny in Christ.
