Neville Johnson has passed away.

New Zealand Pentecostal Pastor Neville Johnson suddenly died on September 1, 2019.

Neville was born in the UK in 1940, but became a resident of New Zealand. He had a strong prophetic gift, which he shared through The Academy of Light, which he founded. The Academy published a quarterly newsletter. He also ran the Living Word Foundation from Australia.

His son posted the following announcement on their website.

On Sunday, the 1st of September 2019, Neville (my dad) passed away peacefully after a very short and aggressive illness. Neville found great strength in his faith and relationship with the Lord throughout. Dad and mum faithfully served the Lord for over 50 years. Dads’ earthly ministry has come to an end but his heavenly ministry has just begun.

I have spent time with the Lord in reflection of the sudden loss of dad and remember him with such love and admiration. I will be moving into a more active role in the ministry. My hope is to be effective for the Lord in these end times by spreading the Word of God so He may equips us all.

The Academy of Light school ‘Moving Further with the Lord’ will be run as planned for February 2020 with Bruce Allen, Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj, Jo Sweet, and Andy Tiplady teaching. An additional speaker is yet to be confirmed. We will provide an update when finalised on the information page. We are looking forward to what God has for the attendees.

Our family would like to thank people for their words of sympathy and kindness; as well as their prayers for strength and comfort. We request any condolences be sent to Johnson.family@theacademy.org.au so these can be easily collated for our family to read.

As a private and humble man, Neville’s committal service will be conducted with family and close friends as per his wishes. We understand peoples need to gather in times such as this so we encourage you to seek support from God and those around you.

On behalf of my mum, Jo, and our family we extend our love and gratitude.

Mark Johnson

Life and peace to the entire family. A true spiritual father to many, but more important than that, he is a dear, personal friend of God. Welcome home brother!!

Your entire family is in my thoughts and prayers. I’m so very sorry to hear of your father Neville Johnson passing.

My children and I always were so blessed when we listen to his sermons. My son Abraham listened to the sermon where he passed the Billy Graham anointing to listeners online. Oh how we will miss this blessed man of God. His teachings touched my family’s life. The Johnson family and the entire congregation are in our prayers.

This was in one of his little studies. Dated 2005:

“Joseph Ministries Part 1

In 1998 seven years ago I had a dream in which a calendar was ticking over in years and it stopped at the fourteenth year. Recently the Lord repeated this dream to me again. I pondered this at the same time asking the Lord what it was all about.

The Lord then gave me a new 14 year mandate for my life pointing out to me that I had been in fulltime ministry for 5 x7 years 35 years and that he was commissioning me to a special period of 2 x 7 years, 14 years. The next 14 years will be the most important years for the church since the birth of Jesus.”

This year is 14 years. Remarkable. Also, he’s had 7×7 years of ministry according to this.

I had never heard of him until this posting. God bless his family.

Sarah, thank you for posting this….Neville was one of my mentors and somehow I had missed this 14 year period ending in 2019. For those of you who were not acquainted with Neville I submit a sample of his teaching given in Sydney in 2016. I can assure all that Neville is not sitting in a porch swing in his new mansion. I picture him on a white horse leading a contingent of the Lord’s Army as they battle in the heavens on our behalf. Paul taught us that the Church on Earth and the Church in Heaven is one Church. My wife and I are booked to a conference in Australia that Neville was hosting. I don’t know how the Lord will fill the vacuum, but He is able. I really miss him.

Neville frequently saw his deceased daughter who was always busy on a mission fulfilling the LORD’s will (like taking the children off of a plane that was going to be crashed). You are correct in stating that Neville will (probably) not be sitting on a porch swing in this new mansion. He sometimes would describe (while in Lancaster) some of the dwellings,some call mansions, of people in heaven.

Thanks. I was gently nudged to listen to him speak. A lot of the things he said is echoing of the teachings on his site. I’m going to be extremely transparent here and I hope I am not speaking ill. – I would not be listening (much) to this gentleman at all if it weren’t for some of the things he said being “confirmations”, so to speak, of what I learned in my own prayers/scripture reading. A lot of what he says references his personal experiences. As much as I enjoy a “good story” (I apologise..so sorry, but I’m being transparent)…as much as I enjoy a good story, it is not the same as experiencing and learning from the Holy Spirit firsthand. He talked about hearing from Enoch about something, for instance. I am not trying to boast, but if it weren’t for learning these things *on my own*(but not really on my own – you know what I mean – and dreadfully honestly and to my shame, I have to be reminded again at times), I would…look..-sigh- I would disregard. I was told once, for instance, that there will be poor people in Heaven in my prayer time. I have also been strongly urged if the necessity of keeping my heart and mind on the Lord, clinging to Him because He is our life. This is all in the scripture. “The main thing” as he said is truly “the main thing”, but these things..I don’t know. What was the point in him talking about these angels he saw? Forgive me for saying this but I am not really interested in that. It is distracting. I am not interested in personalities, no matter how wonderful they are. I want to know *HIM*. This has been a driving *drive* in myself… Read more »

Sarah I cannot address everything you tried to express but I can give you my perspective. About 15 yrs ago we shared a tape set with a couple who were fairly new to our home church. It was Nita Johnson sharing about her experiences in heaven. The couple totally rejected the teachings and said “why do we need to know about heaven now why we are on earth?” My response was because Jesus taught His disciples to pray “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”. Doesn’t it behoove us to know what we are trying to bring down to earth? Would we even recognize heaven on earth if we had no knowledge concerning it? What Neville provoked in me was that it is possible to have a one on one relationship with our Lord as a friend who is closer than a brother. His stories were meant to teach us the ways of the Lord. For instance, “tell my people that they can dwell in my garden when I can dwell in theirs”, directly correlating to “he who has clean hands and a pure heart”. I don’t remember what he said in the video about Enoch but I know Enoch came to him many times and
taught him. Neville said that Enoch is the happiest man he has ever met. I’ll close with the 2 angels he mentioned. They were the same angels that were with Lot at Sodom and Gomorrah. They were there as Sydney had crossed the same line of sin and Neville was prophesying that judgement was now certain.

pastor Neville ‘s teaching really change people, in many many years ,
i have listen to many sermons and teachings ,
there seldom people preach about heaven. because very few people have visited heaven.
pastor Neville talk about heaven a lot, not about the beautiful scenery , not about eat or drink good food ,sightseeing …. not at all,.

what he saw in the heaven really make people awake
he talk about the reward , the reward depend on how a christian lived on earth and if he smell like Jesus, , shine like Jesus, his character like Jesus the more a christian conformed to the Image of Christ , the greater reward he would receive.
in heaven, people ‘s clothing – although it is a white garment, some people might have precious stone on the white garment, some don’t,
the white garment with different degree of light, some people ‘s garment is bright, some is fading ,all depend on how we walk with Jesus on earth.
house , the material to build a house is based on our walk on earth.
his teaching really will awaken us to live our life sincerely before God…

location, some people live very far from the Father God, they might never see God’s face, they only could see the glory.

not only that,

the training for a christian on earth is to prepare them for the ruling / governing in the age to come. if the christian fight the good fight and did work according to God’s will on earth.
