Biblically, a prophet is someone who speaks the Word of God. Its leader, William Seymour, a one-eyed Holiness church pastor and former member of the African Methodist Episcopal church, had been exposed to Parham’s teachings at a Bible school in Houston, Texas. And prophecy predicts that an earthquake will again strike the West Coast of America. Lutheran charismatics admit that many people are taught the mechanics of speaking in tongues, but they emphasize that others have received the gift simply in response to prayer and without receiving any instruction or hearing anyone speak in tongues.
