Is anyone familiar with Mike Bickle and the International House of Prayer? They are also called Friends of The Bridegroom (www.fotb.org).
From what I can tell they are inter-denominational and are very forcused on the end times, the Holy Spirit, and the mystical theology of Christ as the Bridegroom of His people. I have met one person who lives and works there and I have to say I was deeply impressed with her devotion to God, her knowledge of the mystic saints, particularly St. John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila, and her openness to dialogue with Catholics. We did not get a chance to discuss much theology, sadly.
However, the research I am doing leads me to be pretty wary of this group. They are connected to the “Latter Rain” movement, which I had never heard of until today, and loosely affiliated with Bob Jones (which of the many Bobs from the Jones dynasty I am not sure yet.)
I’d love to hear from anyone with live personal contact with this group, or anyone with a better understanding of “manifest sons of God” and “latter rain” theologies. What I am finding on the internet is pretty confusing.
