So You Want to Be a Prophet con’t… Part3
My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering and patience.
Walking in the office of the prophet is not all bad. It does have its high points. As long as you stay dedicated to seeking God, controlling your emotions and personal thoughts, you will be found a useful instrument of God for His people. The life blood of any caring prophet is the testimonies. Without the continual positive reports coming in from His people, you feel the prophetic stream within drying up, leaving you a parched and lonely vessel. However, each report confirming that you have heard God clearly brings a new and fresh anointing, giving you the boldness to go deeper when seeking God for the next batch of requests.
He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward.
We all agree that Jesus was and always will be “The Prophet.” There are major and minor prophets, but Jesus is “The Prophet”, the ultimate Word of God. Therefore, it would make more sense if the verse of Scripture read: “He who receives a prophet in the name of “The Prophet” (referring to Jesus), rather than “a prophet in the name of a prophet”. To receive a Word from a prophet that came from “The Prophet,” Christ Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lords, would be easier to understand. Then the reward comes from “The Prophet” (Jesus), not just any old prophet, but from Him, the Word of God. For the reward is always in His Word, not in yours.
Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.
2 Chronicles 20:20
Another reason to receive prophets in the Name of “The Prophet” is the reward of prosperity. The word “prosperity” is defined as “help along the journey.” There will be many times in life’s travels that you will need a prophet to help you find your way back to prosperity. We all know how easy it is to get off track and lose sight of where we are headed. That is another reason why God has given His Church prophets.
And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings,
1 Corinthians 12:28
Over the years I have found it very difficult to work within the local church as a prophet, trying the five-fold ministry, threefold ministry and a few other formulas but none seemed to work out. The main problem was always the same; either the pastor or someone with a dynamic personality would take control, telling you what you could say and what you could not say when giving a word. Or there was the true Word of God delivered, and it made someone angry and they wanted to retaliate. Another popular personality would always seem to rise to the occasion, the jealous one who felt they were not receiving enough attention, so another problem would begin to boil over, tainting the true purpose of the prophet. Finally, after much prayer and seeking Him for answers, He gave me the reason why it was not working in the local church. First of all, it was not in the format of five-fold or three-fold, but rather the answer was in the true understanding of what the Church is and not what we have made it to be. Over the years, our daily language has painted a picture of what we think the church is. Like, “I got saved and began to go to church.” Another cliché is: “What church do you belong to?” There are countless others, but the fact is there is only one Church, and it is neither a denomination nor non-denomination. It is the invisible Church of God, the Kingdom of God on earth as well as in Heaven. When I would study the old prophets of God, they were not in the temples or synagogues. They were far away from the crowd seeking God. When the people saw the prophet or prophets of God coming down from the high place, they were all ears to hear what God was now saying through the prophets. Another thing when you are with the fellowship of the local church and someone needs a word from God, it does not have the power unless you have been absent from the body for a long period of time. The reason is twofold. First, if you are the prophet and thoughts start coming to your mind, you wonder: “Is this something I overheard, or is my personal knowledge of the person influencing my words?” The second part is the recipient of the word will wonder if someone told the prophet about their personal life or about the problem they were experiencing, and this drastically diminishes the power of the word. If the prophet was a total stranger then you know they have heard God because there was no way they could have known what was going on in their life. This is another reason why standing alone as a prophet of God is important for the people. The sacrifice sometimes is hard but well worth the reward in knowing that you are truly helping His people by accurately hearing His Word.

Spirit of Prophecy
The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy, according to John in the book of Revelation. What is the testimony of Jesus? Jesus came to show us who His Father was, and how much we were loved. He came looking for lost sheep ready to express the nature of the Father and to reconcile us to Him. He came to give us hope and life, so that faith in Him could propel us out of bondage into freedom. That is exactly what prophecy is able to do for us. It shows us how much we are loved and it gives us hope and stirs our faith to believe. It is the Word, as Jesus was the Word. It has the same kind of power that raised Jesus from the dead to bring life to the dead places. It is Jesus as the Word, looking for His lost sheep, ready and able to rescue them and place their feet on solid ground.
Comments and Testimonies
For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. ~ Rev. 19:10b
Prophecy is the testimony that Jesus is not dead but Alive and Speaking to you and I.
You are such a blessing to me. I thank God every day for you. I don’t know if you realize how much you are helping me. I have needed an impartial friend for so long who could tell me the truth in love even if it hurts. I greatly value such a friend and will delicately make sure you know that I am not taking advantage of your generosity and time spent counseling me. I look so forward to all your teaching materials and hopefully one day David and I can attend your church. His brother lives near Dallas. In Tyler, I think.

YES, they granted me the amount that I need every month now, and the person who is responsible for the human resources affairs and salaries tells me it is even a little bit more than what I wanted! It’s EXACTLY what you suggested.
I am happy.
Kent, it’s not that God would not have confirmed every little detail all along this process now, but I am SO grateful for the words, encouragements and prayer support.
I will start in March. This will be a job as a representative of the mayor of this city (the Youth Olympic Games just started today) and I will have to organize all the events like that. I ask God that all will be done to HIS glory and honor.
As I reread the word from October 2010 I see that there will also be other believers in that place. It’s a huge administration staff of about 1.400 people.
At present I am speechless. What door God has opened here I can’t really describe, but it must be that He entrusts me to go through all the new beginnings to have something really good. It’s really like that: Age does not matter with God but God matters.
I am celebrating today.
Thank you for your support, I appreciate it and direction and confirmation was needed.
I prayed that God bless you and your family richly.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I Want to Be Your Prophetic Pastor
In the past I spent much of my time traveling to other countries, but ministering in distant places left me drained. I have decided to hang up my traveling shoes and focus upon those families who regularly support this ministry. It is time for me to develop a long term relationships with the people who have a real desire to learn more about what God is doing today.
From 1989 to 1995 I ministered to over 250,000 people via prophecy tapes. I receive hundreds of prophecy requests each month and I will continue to send out personal prophecy tapes and CD’s and Audio Emails to those who are seeking God.
In addition to the prophetic gift God has entrusted to me, the Lord has also directed me to become a Prophetic Pastor to those who will receive me. In this new capacity I can sow prophetic seeds into the lives of those who want to prosper with me. If you will allow me to be your Prophetic Pastor, I will commit to be there for you, and help you prosper in spiritual and financial health and wealth.
He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. Matthew 10:41
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

In recent years, it has become almost impossible to reach me; my home telephone rings day and night. For this reason I have started the Family Partners who will have a direct line to my private phone. My private phone number allows Family Partners to reach me during times of trouble or when they are having difficulty finding God’s will or when making tough decisions. When you call me, I will seek God’s direction for you and help determine how God wants to meet your immediate needs.
