I'm a bit younger, so am less aware of the likes of Bob Jones - though his name has come up while looking into IHOP. I do believe God has used IHOP to unveil truths to the prayer movement - but I personally suspect they will soon be challenged on some of their foundations that I believe to be wrong. Those challenges have happened here in provincial New Zealand, where IHOP idolatry has been repented of :-) Their tabernacle focus - and their platforms - I feel are wrong foundations.
Most especially there is the "kingdom" of politics or government. This naturally implies the concentration of military and police power in the hands of those in control during the Kingdom Age. They are referred to as the "many-membered man child," whom Kingdom Theology adherents believe will be the fulfillment of Revelation 12:1-5: "And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars....And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron."
I am a supporter of Israel - BUT I know their heart is not yet for the true Messiah, and so I know their current rebuilding is required for the final destruction that's prophesied - and the same re the temple rebuild being required for the abomination of desolations. I recently listened to a talk by the late Art Katz who expounded the foolishness of sending Jews back to Israel at this time (that many were in fact being sent for their eventual persecution and death.) And I agree re temples made by man.
I'd be interested in what you learned from your uncle. Uncles are interesting. I owe several revelations in part to an uncle of my own.
ZEC 13:2 "On that day, I will banish the names of the idols from the land, and they will be remembered no more," declares the LORD Almighty. "I will remove both the prophets and the spirit of impurity from the land. 3 And if anyone still prophesies, his father and mother, to whom he was born, will say to him, `You must die, because you have told lies in the LORD's name.' When he prophesies, his own parents will stab him.
ZEC 13:4 "On that day every prophet will be ashamed of his prophetic vision. He will not put on a prophet's garment of hair in order to deceive. 5 He will say, `I am not a prophet. I am a farmer; the land has been my livelihood since my youth. ' 6 If someone asks him, `What are these wounds on your body?' he will answer, `The wounds I was given at the house of my friends.'

While the "Spirit Filled Prophetic" model as described by Wolfgang Simson in the above mentioned books may be quite effective in other countries, I doubt its effectiveness in America...If any prophets in America are to be of any use, it will be as Historians, Psychologists, Sociologists, Anthropologists, Political Scientists, Economists, Journalists, Human Rights Activists, and etc with their camel skins hidden away.
