In 1989 after many of the deviant practices of Mike Bickle's ministry (KCF) were exposed, the church came under the wing of John Wimber and the Vineyard Fellowship. Wimber, who in later years expressed his regret in even becoming involved with the KCF, issued a 15 point memo of items that needed to be corrected.
Point fourteen seemed to be rather Bill Clintonish (“depends on what the meaning of 'is' is.”) where Wimber danced around the issue of restorationism and the five-fold.
14. Calling John Wimber, or others, apostles and prophets verses (sic) using the terms “apostolic leadership” and “prophetic ministry.”
We can see, initially, that Bickle made an effort to make correction in this area.
Here's a quote from Mike Bickle circa 1989, recalling a meeting between “prophet” Bob Jones and Art Katz, a teacher who was involved with KCF:
'That man is a prophet of God' said Katz. 'He told me secrets of my heart which no man could possibly know!' 
Fast forward to 1996 and a recollection of the same event in the third printing of “Growing in the Prophetic”
“Mike, this man seems like a prophet of God. He told me the secrets of my heart.” 
Reading on in the earlier version of the story, we are later told that Katz “suddenly stood up” and pronounces to Jones that he was a “prophet of God.” By 1996, we have Bickle “suddenly blurting” out to Jones that he was “truly prophetic.”
This is not a case of being picky about minor differences in retelling a story. And to Bickle's credit, he did make an attempt to address point fourteen. But changing the words - quotations- that were once spoken to make them politically correct is the most evil form of historical revisionism.
The Christian concept of repentance involves a change of heart, and a turning away. If you are a murderer and repent, you stop murdering. You do not revise your past history and say “yes, I beat that man very severely” when you actually killed him. You tell the truth and add the disclaimer "but I now see that murder was wrong."
The instance I have cited above is just one of dozens, perhaps hundreds, of similar revisions. Because the IHOP movement is so fascinated with their own so-called prophetic history, there are multiple stories (and versions) of heavenly visitations to leaders of the movement where God spoke and gave direction. In the same manner as the simple story above, it can be demonstrated, through comparing various documents and teaching tapes, that Mike Bickle will take the same liberties and revise even what he says are the very words of God- to suit the circumstance. We may question whether God even spoke, but it is presumptious to change those words that supposedly were spoken to make one look good.
