A Conversation with Francis and Judith MacNutt, Interview by David Kyle Foster


David: In your research, have you noticed any patterns that consistently reappear when the Holy Spirit breaks out afresh?

Francis: Usually it happens in an out-of-the-way place where there are a small number of pastors who have begun studying the scripture and wondering why the miraculous has ceased.


David: Have you ever thought that these outbreaks of the Holy Spirit invariably must be temporary because man’s tendency will always be to start seeking the gift rather than the giver?

Francis: Yes, that’s part of it. Also, some leaders have tried to make money out of it. Some have became alcoholics. Others have run off with the church secretary or whatever. All these human things take place causing many legitimate moves of God to get sidetracked and discredited.

It may go underground for a while, but will eventually break forth, such as it did at Azusa Street in the early 20th century. That outbreak is so big now in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, that no one can put it out. I pray that it continues so that everybody in the world will be touched somehow and understand what Christianity really is.
