Isaiah’s Prophecy Fulfilled

This an excerpt from a chapter of my upcoming book “A VISION OF HOPE FOR THE END TIMES: Why I Want to Be Left Behind” to be released in December through Destiny Image Publishers.

Isaiah’s Prophecy

Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes round about and see; they all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from afar, and your daughters will be carried in the arms. read more

The Coming Prophetic Shift

Something is about to shift in the prophetic world…

A cleansing is imminent and already under way. As this purification of much that has been impure takes root, it will also include a changing of the guard. While faithful patriarchs such as John Paul Jackson, Bishop Bill Haman and my own father, John Sandford (to name a few) have paved the way for reliable prophetic ministry, it seems clear that a fresh set of voices will now carry it forward. An older generation is passing away or simply fading from the spotlight while a fresh group of anointed prophets is just beginning to emerge. read more

Elijah Rain Ministries!


Dear friends,

We’re on our way! After some much needed rest, we’re excited to be starting a new ministry. We’ve chosen a name, ELIJAH RAIN MINISTRIES, and are in the process of setting up our 501(c)(3). In our next email, we’ll explain the meaning of the name. Right now we’re busy arranging the business side of things and designing a logo. My brother Loren’s church, New Song Church and Ministries in Denver, has offered their state-of-the-art camera equipment to video our teachings. And there will be new books and articles, etc. Loren will be here the second week in July with Beth to help us create a new website!

After Elijah’s departure, Elisha wore Elijah’s mantle and carried on the work he began. And he expanded it! My parents, John and Paula Sandford, passed their mantles to Maureen and me before going to be with Jesus. So, as an Elisha to their Elijah, here’s how we’re going to expand the work they began: read more

Overcoming the Wave of Hatred

The same disease that has infected the nation has also invaded the body of Christ…Hatred!

Long ago I began issuing prophetic warnings of the wave of hatred that would engulf our nation and even the world. I pled then for Christians not to participate in it. Now that wave is upon us, both in the world around us and in the body of Christ. read more
