It’s Time For A Greater Restoration of the Prophetic Minstrel

Welcome to the dawn of a new blog series called The Restoration of the Prophetic Minstrel. Let me jump right in to the why and the what

Let me ask you to do something right now… pull up Google and type in “prophetic minstrel.” Go ahead and then return to this post…

That’s right… #1

Out of 80,000 results, the #1 result is a post I made in 2010…

What does that tell you? Well, I’ll tell you what it tells me…

It tells me that, after being called as a prophetic minstrel 17 years ago, after years writing this blog, releasing music and a book… The ministry of the Prophetic Minstrel is still widely unknown much less understood… And that I personally still have a lot of work to do.

As I’ve just turned 40, I felt a shift in my life and ministry to begin narrowing down specifically what I will focus on over the next season of life and ministry.

I feel that bringing a RESTORATION of the ministry of the prophetic minstrel to the church and the world is a large part of my personal calling and assignment. I’ve spent 17 years figuring out my own personal calling regarding all of this. I’ve travelled the world releasing the song of the Father in churches, coffee shops, homeless shelters, living rooms and more. I’ve learned so many things along the way…

Now is the time to begin reproducing what I’ve learned in thousands of other artists globally. The roots have gone DEEP for 17 years… This tree is about to get huge!

One of the things that has impacted me along my journey, especially the last 5-6 years, has been the interaction I’ve had with many of YOU here on this blog and via social media.

It’s crazy when someone from Australia or the U.K. contacts me because they Googled “prophetic minstrel” and found my blog and they ask me how they can order my book… It’s crazy because the reason I think they are contacting me is because THEY HAVE NOWHERE ELSE TO LOOK, NOBODY ELSE TO CONTACT….

It blows me away to think that I MAY VERY WELL BE WHAT I CALL AN “ACCIDENTAL EXPERT.” I NEVER set out to be an expert in the niche called prophet minstrel, but after 17 years I am humbly accepting that this may very well be what God had in mind all along. He did not just call me to this so that I could sing in living rooms for the rest of my life, hiding away… I think that season is done and it’s time for this to explode onto the scene like the House of Prayer movement did in the early 2000’s.

THE PSALMISTS ARE COMING OUT OF THE FIELDS… THE MINSTRELS ARE COMING TO THE PALACE…

This word pertains to David coming from the sheep field to King Saul’s palace. David left the field as a psalmist and entered the palace as a minstrel… He developed a connection with God in that field that translated into an ability to bring others into the place he now lived, moved and had his being in… David left the field, but the field never left David… That place of devotion was not tied in to a field, it was now in David’s heart and he carried it wherever he would go for the rest of his life…

I’ve been involved in the worship and prayer movement since 1999. I go way back. I remember when IHOP Kansas City met in a double-wide trailer. I’ve been around this for a while… I am saying that to say that these psalmists are not called to the House of Prayer forever… God is calling these psalmist OUT. NOW! Now is the time for those who have been hidden in these sheep fields “TO EMERGE WITH THE REVELATION THEY’VE CULTIVATED” for years now… If we keep this to ourselves for another decade, we are not going to find ourselves in God’s will. That is a strong statement, but I believe strongly that God is calling the psalmists out of the fields and the caves to begin speaking for God through the arts in incredible ways…

YES, IT’S ALREADY BEEN HAPPENING… But this is a new level that is coming.

WHAT’S COMING FROM ME?

Consistency! Writings, video and audio – This is also the beginning of a new book that I will release called “The Restoration of the Prophetic Minstrel”

There are some books that are timeless… Others that are TIMELY… This next book is going to be a catalyst, as will this series of blogs, vlogs and podcasts be…

I’m at 750+ words, so I will go for now…

Thanks for going on this journey with me!

  1. Sir, my name is sister Hope George. I am from Nigeria, a country in Africa. I have the ministry of the minstrel, but I don’t quite know how to go about it. God gives me powerful songs in my sleep. He keeps telling me that He has called me to usher people into His presence to release the supernatural and bring healing and deliverance to millions. I need help with this huge task. As we speak I still work for peanut so afraid to quit and answer the call. please help.

  2. Great article – interestingly, in the fall of 2013, God led my husband and I (both musicians/singers) to join a this particular church. That following spring, we participated in that ministry’s annual spring conference – phenomenal! People were prayed for, delivered, etc…. a minister of God prayed a prophetic pray over me that minstrel would come forth. I was excited and thought I understood, but I really did not. The move of God in my life since December 2016 has proven to be unlike I have ever experienced – everything points to this call and I am walking in it by faith – it is sooooo powerful – Glory! I was satisfied hanging in the shadows and cheering other’s on, but God had plans for me. Thanks for blogging this brother – I rejoice!

    Can I just say wow! I feel the connection with what you’re talking about. And yes! I’m one of these minstrels coming out of the cave! I know there’s more than just singing a set list every Sunday and I’m starting to flow in ministering to people during worship. I read your post about people needing to trust us to lead them into an encounter with God and that’s what’s been on my heart lately (and yes I’ve even thought of asking them to trust me). Wow, just wow, I’m amazed at how you put it so simply when I’ve been trying to figure out how to do this for a while.
