These are the old newsletters of Banner Ministries. The newsletter is no longer in production, (as of Autumn 1996) but back-copies containing articles on doctrinal error, and other topics, can be downloaded from this site. The "Mainstream" newsletter began on a small scale in 1985 but early editions are not yet available on this site. In date order, the magazines contain articles as follows:
Paul Cain teaches the Ishmael/Isaac concept that is now called the "post-charismatic era". This says that the old charismatic movement was a false start (an Ishmael) and was always intended to lead to the birth of the true child of revival, the Isaac of the current renewal.
- False Spirit of Love: This was written before the outbreak of the now-familiar Toronto manifestaions, therefore gives a prophetic warning of the activities of a false spirit masquerading as "love and joy". Here is advice on how to spot deception and avoid it.
