About Dr. Paul Edwin Jones
I started in the ministry when I
was about 8 years old, around the year 1971. I was
living on the farm with my mom and her parents. There
used to be a barn out in the back. So I would preach
there. Many kids in the neighborhood would come by. So
we would hold meeting every Sunday around 2pm.
Between the year 1972 and 1978. I
went to First Baptist of Reidsville North Carolina.,
where I became part of the youth ministry there.
Then my mom in 1979 moved to
Danville Virginia. This is where I became part of my
grandfather's church, Non-Denominational Christian
Tabernacle. His name was Rev. L. J. Harris. For about 5
years I studied under his leadership and authority .
In 1984, God sent two mighty women
of God in my life, Betty Donavant and Loretta Barbour.
They were both traveling ministers of the Lord Jesus
Christ. Through these women many doors were opened for
me. I had the privilege to minister the word in many
churches throughout Virginia, North Carolina and
Georgia.. Also in 1984, Betty Donavant and her husband,
licensed and ordained me into the gospel, through the
United Christian Fellowship .
Also in 1984 and 1985, I became
pastor of a church in Eden N.C, Revival Time
Ministries. This is where I begin to learn about what
it meant to be a true leader of the gospel. In 1985,
Pastor Barbour started a church, "Church of Outreach
Ministries" where I co-pastored for 5 years there.
Throughout these years I was
taking a bible course through the mail and on campus
during summer months with the "Calvary Pentecostal
Church" of Richmond Virginia. In
1989, I received my Masters of Divinity with
the Calvary Pentecostal Church. In 1993 I was awarded an
honoree doctorate with same college.
From 1989 until 1992, God sent me
to Knoxville Tennessee, where I became the assistant
pastor and worship leader of Manna Christian Tabernacle,
under the direction of Barry Cook. I work with his
ministry until 1992.
From 1992 till 1998, I was a lay
minister and worship leader at a Full Gospel Baptist
church called Northshore Baptist Church. The pastor's
name was James Pellom.
I also had a radio ministry
throughout these years, called The Gospel is Alive. I
started being the co-host on my grandfather's radio
program from 1979 until 1989. Then I started my own
program around 1984, up till now. I have been on many
radio and television stations., preaching, singing and
teaching the power of the Holy Ghost in our lives
of most interesting things that has happen to me was
back in 1984, a minister from China, Alice Ford, who was
in Richmond Virginia, gave me a prophecy about what God
was going to do in the work he had for me. She told me
that I would lead praise and worship sessions all over
the world. She also said she saw me sitting behind a
desk preaching and teaching the gospel. I first thought
this was television or radio, these I have done.
During the 90s lots of wonderful things happen to me. I
studied under some of the greatest spiritual teachers that God
has placed upon this earth. Elizabeth Clare Prophet of
"Church Universal and Triumphed", where I learned about
Jesus, Buddha, understanding various world religions, ascended masters and other
realities of the new age. Neal Donald Walsh's books on "Conversation with
God", have done wonders in my life, giving me an insight
in life, my role in the earth, and my mission and
purpose, as I live positive in a negative world. In
April of 1996 I received "The Mechezedek Priesthood
through Stephen Coskie who was an initiate of the order
. In 1998, I came across some wonderful books written by
Dr. Joshua David Stone, called "The Ascension Manual"
There are almost 20 volumes in this series.
So through the internet and the world wide web
I share the gospel of the Kingdom. Through Jesus Christ,
my Lord, my Savior, my Teacher, I share the principles
he taught in scriptures that connects us with God,
ourselves, and the human race.
said.....1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit,
but try the
spirits whether they are of God:
because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
In 1995, I signed on what
they call the internet on the world wide web. It took me
a while to pray about what name I would use as a online
minister. Then I recall in my early years with under my
grandfather's ministry, he said "Paul, Son, when you
preach always preach grace. The world may be evil and it
may be getting worse, but grace will never fail. So give
the people grace, and let God do the rest." So after
praying and seeking God a while I came up with the name
True Revival Fires. And I use this name all over the internet.
Everywhere I go, most people know me as
True Revival Fires..
Whether its AOL, Yahoo, Paltalk, they all know my user
name as True Revival Fires.
I am a seeker of truth, blending many
traditions and paths, applying knowledge
gained to help my fellow spiritual
friends towards reaching their goals. I
believe in the Most High. I believe that
we are Spiritual beings in physical
bodies. I believe that we are all in
part Divine. I believe that we are all
here to complete our piece of "The Great
Work". I believe in the power of prayer
in all faiths...
I believe that devotion is the key to
enlightenment. I believe that faith is
the key to healing - emotionally,
physically and spiritually. I believe
that love is the most powerful force on
this planet - and in its vast expansion
will create Heaven on Earth. This
lifetime I have walked many pathways and
studied many religions and philosophies.
Although I was raised as a Christian and
still honor the teachings of Christ
among others, I love to fellowship and
learn from other religions and
I became a spiritual seeker when I was
twelve and have studied the Bible, the
Book of Mormon,
Buddhism, Hinduism, Paganism, Shamanism,
Metaphysical/New Age and beyond. My
spiritual journey is evolutionary, full
of questions and the compulsion to
search for truth. I tend to get a little
mental but my joy is in my real,
heart-felt communion with God which I
experience in other people, nature,
silence, music, prayer, poetry and in
ways I am not aware. Love is my primary
reality. I am a pilgrim on a journey
seeking first and foremost my own truth.
As life evolves and experiences teaches,
I am most interested in sharing my
journey with others, and sharing in
their journeys. For I believe, that we
cannot walk another man's path, but in
sharing we can come to understand and
grow. I believe that I have a purpose, a
reason for being, a mission to fulfill
on this earth plane. I want to be of
service to my Creator, to be one of
God's power houses of light, love,
blessings and healings. I want to be a
part of the collective spiritual
consciousness that will propel us into
the next millennium.

Some of my
favorite bible passages are sown below
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one
in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,
and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance:
but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not
worthy to bear:
he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
But as many as received him, to them gave he power
to become the sons of God,
even to them that believe on his name:
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say,
Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you.
And Jesus went about all the cities and villages,
teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the
and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven:
and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven:
and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted,
and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world
for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
And when he was demanded of the Pharisees,
when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said,
The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there!
for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink;
but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
1 Corinthians 4:20
For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.

been in the ministry for about 30 years. Seen a lot
of wonderful things throughout these years. I

that needs revival, renewal and restoration.
Matthew 28:18- 20
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All
power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I
have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway,
even unto the end of the world. Amen.
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world,
and preach the gospel to every creature.
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that
believeth not shall be damned.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name
shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing,
it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the
sick, and they shall recover.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me,
the works that I do shall he do also;
and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my
Well since then, the Lord Jesus Christ
has come a long ways in my life. He has given me a desire to
share deep spiritual knowledge and wisdom to the masses of
his people. I have a desire to see God's people equipped
for the work of the ministry. God has given me deep
spiritual knowledge of the bible on the five-fold ministry,
prayer, praise, worship, spiritual gifts, the esoteric, the
metaphysical, and spiritual
warfare. I desire to impart what he has taught me to give it

he is alive and he desires to do a work in our lives. You
may feel like the whole world is crashing around you. I tell
you, do not fear!. get up! God is moving. he is pouring out
His Spirit upon all flesh. He has a divine destiny for all
of us in these days that are ahead. Something is going on in
the heavenlies. Are we ready to be what he wants us to be.

Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is
neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female:
for ye are all

Some points and statements made by Rev. Paul Michael Jones
That you must be born again to enter the kingdom of
God. This means that you must be conceived spiritually
by the Holy Spirit. Paul prayed that "Christ would again
be formed " in the Galatians. You must also receive the
That we should be meek and lowly in heart like
Jesus was. Get rid of your own self-importance and win
the prize. And in this case, everyone can be a winner!
Everything in the spiritual realm revolves around
the Cross of Christ. It finalized the positions of the
spiritual "authorities". But to be in authority you must
already be under authority.
That the devil attempts to use scripture to tempt
you to try to make God's promises work. But only God
makes his promises work. Just believe, watch and see. It
definitely can't be done in your own strength. Let the
Spirit do it and the fireworks begin.
That God looks on the heart and does not judge by
the outer appearance. Natural man always looks to the
outward. But the cleansing of the outside of the cup
will never be enough in itself.
That God is a Spirit ... and our only contact with
him, in this age, is directly on that level.
To praise God is to glorify His actions and express our
admiration. We are not saying "thank you"; we are saying,
"We are in awe of what you are doing".
Jeremiah 31:31- 34
Behold, the days come,
saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with
the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
Not according to the covenant that I made with their
fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to
bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my
covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto
them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant
that I will make with the house of Israel; After
those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in
their inward parts, and write it in their hearts;
and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour,
and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD:
for they shall all know me, from the least of them
unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I
will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember
their sin no more.
The New Wave
Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers
Ephesians 4:11- 13
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some,
evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry,
for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge
of the Son of God,
unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the
fulness of Christ:
There have been quite a few prophecies regarding a
resurgence of new leadership in the Church, and indeed a new
'type' or character of leadership. Certainly we need a new
'type' of leadership today one which would fulfill the standards
that Jesus taught for authority, and those who would 'fit the
bill' would fail to be ego-driven or ego-centered.
So much of what we bring to the table in our current
limited perspective is at this point often so speculative
because we to some degree relate all things out of our
previously tainted experience base. I suppose many look for a
new breed of hotshots who will be so much hotter than the rest.
They'll flash bigger smiles, have more confidence, walk with
more polish, and teach the flashiest sermons. But how many of
us have walked with Paul, or Peter, or Thomas or Matthew? The
off scouring of the earth was was they were sometimes called.
Crucified, homeless, despised by some, recognized and honored by
others, overly honored by some others still.
I will call it a 'new wave' because I think what God sends
us in an expected coming release of prophets and apostles will
bring a whole restored paradigm that Jesus, Paul, and John the
baptist especially lived and taught.
I believe the Lord has been preparing for some time now a
whole special generation of apostles and prophets. Though they
may first appear on the scene in a somewhat typical fashion,
ultimately I think what is brought to the church will strongly
change the appearance of what we currently call church.
You see, apostles and prophets are foundation layers;
that's what makes their heart tick. When they look at the
church they see what the necessary foundations are, and the
principals of construction that are to be followed on those
precious foundations. The may not be experts at every detail
of the outworking of all these things, but they come with THE
FOUNDATIONAL ESSENCES out of which every timber and every stone
are to be fashioned and set with.
The zeal of the Lord is the prophetic burden that has been
growing for some time now in their hearts, a passion, a vision,
a clearer perspective that what we have yet known as 'church'.
It's not a political revolution, exercising a new type of
dominion or papacy. What they bring is a revolution of heart
foundations, which will inspire a revolution of leadership and
ministry; returning the church to the foundations of 'one body,
one family, one for all and all for one.'
The revolution they bring is a returning to the foundation
of Christ, the one His apostles laid; who refused crowns, who
brought no manipulative slap on the cheek, as Paul said some of
the church of even his day had already degraded to becoming
attracted to in some leaders. Any ecclesiastical/political
revolution will be the result of the content of their lives and
ministry, but not throne seeking on their part. In fact I
doubt if any thrones are here for them, perhaps more crosses
than thrones, that's the way it was for the first twelve.
The call of this release of apostles and prophets to the
church will bring a whole new (new to us) blood line so to speak
into the leadership of the church. It will infuse the leaders
in every area of ministry to a whole turn around in their
perspectives of life and ministry. A new day may be ushered in
for the church to experience the real life of Christ in
community. Others I think will obstinately refuse this move,
lovers of crowns and thrones, both those who sit on them, and
those who love to have others sitting on them.
Gone from these ones who follow the heart of true apostles
and true prophets will be the paradigm that ministers live to be
served, to be the privileged amongst the many. Gone will be
the paradigm of despotic attitudes where men have allowed
themselves to be made kings, or made themselves into such.
At first I believe many prophets and apostles who have
waited on the Lord for this time, waiting and refusing to become
self promoters, when the Lord releases them into the beginnings
of His promotion, some will probably then falter. They will
probably slip into the same old ruts that have been so well worn
into these roads we have rutted out now so deeply it's difficult
for anybody given any anointing and attention to not fall into.
I think though, and I hope I'm not just thinking
optimistically now, that the training they have been through,
and the deep convictions the Lord has entrained in their spirits
and hearts will come through, and many that leave the right
track will return to the inner track worn into a path for their
hearts and minds by years of hiddeness and laying it down, to
keep it down, and only walk in the way of the Lord.
Jesus laid out the path so clear for the first twelve
apostles, and they called Him 'Master.' And His path became
engrained by those lessons He lived with them daily for those
Let us all, as many as hear the call to Father the church
in a coming day, where we may live what we teach, and prove by
real genuine deference that we mean what we speak. God is
watching you right now. How well do you defer to your wife, your
sons and daughters, others at church.
Do not be afraid to stand when the Lord tells you to stand;
but never be afraid of moving out of the way, in fact be looking
for it, so the Lord, and others may be brought higher, not you.
Your job, if you are called to anything significant, is
measured by how high you can lift Jesus up, and help others
proceed into success in Him; and how far they can run. The
measure of your assistance to others, usually without pageantry
or a microphone in your face, is what meets out value of lasting
substance in the presence of our Lord and of His Christ.
Do you choose valor and honor and prestige in the sight of
men, and based on the inventions of their measuring rods; or do
you choose to simply be about what your Father gives you?
Jesus was the best example of an apostle. If you study
and follow His behavior, His radical way of loving, His
abhorrence for ceremony and religious protocol, His simple way
of BEING AND DOING, without trumpet, without earthly accord,
avoiding earthly thrones, crowns, and titles. He loved, more
than anything He loved. He showed. He served. He shepherded
(a lowly job). He was patient, like a Father with His children.
He then turned it over to them.
Paul was the second best example of an apostle. He
closely followed on Christ's example.
John the baptist was the best example of a prophet. He
lived to introduce Christ. He lived to bring the people to the
living Christ and not himself. His joy was to hear the
bridegrooms voice with His bride. He did not want to get in the
way, but lived with one passion, to bring the bride to her
waiting groom, to enamor her with Him. If you're looking for
apostles and prophets, look for this!
I sense in the Lord that the Apostolic reformation is about
to burst forth upon the church. There will be 2 streams - the
one - will seem prominent with many
people declaring their apostolic credentials. The other stream
will be the
those who have been trained and developed over time - those
who are "nobodies" in themselves.
I also sense a warning - the apostolic stream - the
prominent ones by those who are known to many - will be used by
the enemy to turn the church leadership into a dictatorship. I
see in this stream a return to the same conditions that occurred
in the 2nd C AD when local elders - called Bishops became higher
ranking regional leaders and eventually - one became the Pope.
Beware of that spirit because the new apostolic will take of the
shepherding heresy and magnify the wrong spirit - claiming
apostolic authority. The Lord though is raising up the apostles
- his apostles - those called, those created, molded over time,
those who are humble, those who are broken for upon these will
the Lord's authority be poured out. These are the ones who
understand authority and will give their very lives for the
church of God should that be required. The Lord says - resist
the apostolic that seems right - the one that seems as if it
will succeed - resist the push for power and see His heart. In
the true apostles - the Lord's heart will be seen - the cross
will be seen and the love, mercy, compassion and determination
