Prophets Who Stand Alone

I have learned more about our God doing prophesies for others than all the combined teachings of man. I have changed my doctrine many times over after learning the truth. At times, this has caused friction between my brothers and sisters in the Lord and me. However, I would rather have the truth and stand alone than follow the masses into the passive gray areas of denial and complacency.

Standing Alone

Word of the Week

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
2 Timothy 4:3-5

The New King James Version, (Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson Publishers) 1998, c1982.

Just wanted to thank you for the word you had for me. My friend Alex Lee ordered it for me. After hearing the word you had for him I was not surprised how accurate it was and it really spoke to me. It is important to receive feedback on your ministry. I will be praying for you. It was really good to hear from you.

Denny Farmer


Thank you Kent for the word for my friend, it was very accurate.

You also gave me a word recently that was very accurate and confirming. Anyway, I just wanted to write and thank you for speaking God’s word into our lives.


Righteous Tithes

In the churches affiliated with PMT, all tithes that come in are not spent. Not one dime is incurred for expenses, salaries, anything. The tithes are strictly for investments-to sow, to make money. Why? So there will be enough there for you when you are in need. There will be enough there for you when it comes to your day of retirement. There will be someone there to take care of you. There are going to be provisions which will multiply.

Bring all the tithes into the STOREHOUSE,
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,
Says the Lord of hosts,
If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it.
Malachi 3:10 (NKJV)

The Bible makes it clear; we do not place usury upon the people of God. Usury is interest.

Think about this: If you are at your job and you start telling everyone about the new credit card you received from your church, and it has the church’s name on it and you never have to pay any interest what do you think they will say? I can just see it now; looking at the church’s bank card I see a logo on the card that says “theMaster’sCard?” Only the saints within that congregation had the 0% interest on their “theMaster’sCard.” Think about the evangelistic aspects of this. You will be bragging about your 0% interest “theMaster’sCard.” How many people would want a credit card that charges 0% interest “theMaster’sCard?” You are going to pay the money back, of course, because you will be borrowing it from the “STOREHOUSE” (see scripture above Malachi 3:10), but you pay 0% interest, and it NEVER charges you interest or fees.

One of the things I have learned over the years is that when I listen to history, a lot of times God teaches me things about the past. From the past, we can know patterns for the future.

The Bible makes it clear; we do not place usury upon the people of God. Usury is by definition is interest on money borrowed. Interest is for the wicked to pay not for us. Somewhere in history it was reversed. How many mortgages are on church buildings across the land today?

Some of the wealthiest people in this nation are Jewish people because the forefathers were wise and lived up the scriptures that said a good man left his inheritance to his children’s children.

How many preachers are preaching for one reason: because they must obtain the money to meet the budget this week. I went to churches where the budget of $150,000 had to be met every Sunday morning. $150,000! And do you know where that church is today? It’s in bankruptcy. Fifteen million dollar building that has cobwebs growing in the corners. Why? Because the principle was not in wisdom; it was in self-motivation of men and humanistic, worldly way of doing things.

We have to come to a place where we must live up to the principles that God is showing us.

Now, what do you do with all this money that comes in for the church? This is where the elders come in to place. They have to be wise. They have to be hearing God! They have to know what God is going to do with these finances. Now, immediately, I began to seek God. Lord, what are we going to do? I have fifteen years of banking; I know a little bit about the financial markets, but what does God want to do? I cannot rely on the knowledge I have or what education or what experience I have in the financial market place. It is still going to take God. I am NOT going to listen to Warren Buffett for advice when I can hear the Spirit of the Lord. No. He doesn’t know what tomorrow holds. Only one knows what is around the corner of tomorrow!

God will show us what to buy and what to sell. He will prosper the church if we do according to His will. So, pastors wonder, how will I be supported? That is what offerings are about. It is the offering which we should operate off of, not the tithe! The tithes belong to God. The tithes are there for God. And what is God interested in? He wants it for His people. His expenditure for His people is limitless! He gave us His only begotten son, the Lord Jesus Christ. So why would you think He wants this money, the tithes? The tithe is placed in the “STOREHOUSE” for His ministers to take care of God’s people not to take care of the pastor’s Leer jet, mansion and collection of toys. It is not to make the pastor to be fancied or look high and mighty so that everybody will want to be like him. Hey, we are supposed to exalt only ONE, and that is the Godhead; He and only He should the head of the church. Take note, anything with more than one head is a freak!

What does God want to do with the money? In the beginning, He showed me this practicality by the demonstrations of the Jews who came into America around the time of World War II. A lot of them came in World War I because there were persecutions even then. But when they came to America, they had very, very little, like most immigrants coming to America. So what did these men and women do?

They had little time to make anything for themselves. But they knew this Proverb: A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children. And they were going to live by this principle. They were ready to sacrifice themselves for the next generation. Are people following this principle today? I don’t think so.

If you see a huge RV going up and down the road, it might seem humorous, but it is really sad. A lot of them have license plates that say, “We are spending our children’s inheritance,” as if boasting blasphemies against God’s principle. But we have to provide for our children’s children. We have to provide for the church of the next generation.

A lot of people are saying there is not going to be another generation. I am here to tell you that is a bold-faced lie from the pits of Hell. It is the major discussion of the new millennium. Everybody has prepared for raptured, but I tell you these teaching are scaring the young people out of the church. That message has destroyed so many people, and it will destroy the whole church if we continue with it. The rapture message is not the gospel message that Jesus purchased with His blood; the gospel message is there is life after death for those who believe He is the long awaited Messiah.

God is going to preserve His people, as He promised in Genesis. He said that He will never destroy mankind again. That is the promise of the rainbow. People try to water it down by saying that God meant He will not destroy us by a flood, but rather He is going to kill us all with fire. That is not what He said!

He said He will never destroy mankind again. There is a whole different teaching on this subject which we will not get into now. But we have a commission of God to prepare for future generations. The way we have been doing things in the church has made it less and less powerful, less and less critical and fewer and fewer people are interested in being on a ship with holes in it and going down quickly. They want to be part of something that is living, part of something that is gaining, something that has a voice.

If a church has $1,800,000 in the bank, people are going to listen to them. They will pay attention to those people when they come and say we want this in our government. One church in one year can collect $1,800,000 in tithes. What if we did it with all the churches across the United States? If every one of them stored the tithes, how long would it take to have a majority of the finances and who will the world listen to? It would not take very long if every church began holding the tithes and not spending them. How long would it take before the church at large controlled the major portion of the world’s funds?

Now, I am going back to the Jews. What did they do? When they came to America, they had nothing. They had to do something so what they did was this: They found whatever jobs they could do, but with every dime they could get a hold of over and above the essential cost of living they bought life insurance and made their children the beneficiary. They knew this one thing: it was guaranteed that they were going to die. That was a sure thing. And if they had the policy, the children would have something to start out with because they had nothing. Now, what has happened because of that?

Some of the wealthiest people in this nation are Jewish people because the forefathers were wise and lived up the scriptures that said a good man leaves his inheritance to his children’s children. It is a guaranteed practice every one of us is accountable to die at some point in time.

So what should we do? One investment the church can make with its policy is to insure its people. Why? To make the church the beneficiary. Why do this? So it can leave something for the next generation of children.

The church is supposed to be one big body, one big family. I am not saying give all your properties. Some Christian TV programs say they will take all your properties, work out your trust and will and deed it all to the church. Well, I am not interested in that. I am interested mainly in taking in some investment that we know will work so that the church can prosper. Think about this: How many people will pass away? Some unfortunately die because of an accident. Some unfortunately die because of a sickness or disease. The fact of the matter is that we live in a world where those things happen. So the money goes to the church, is the money spent? No. It is there to take care of the next generation and the present elderly generation’s needs.

We have people all over the place who are in need of finances. We have people who are in need of being able to build a company if they had just a little bit to start out with, they could make it. Where can they get it? They can get it from the STOREHOUSE. It is there, ready and available, to give to suitable causes. There should be accountability to the elders to make sure it is invested properly. We do not want to lose it this is why we need prophetic insight.

People will say, how will we know that you are going to use the tithes like you say that you are not going to spend the tithes? Every year there will be an outside professional audit done on that account. Every penny accounted for, where it went, how it was invested. Everyone receives a statement showing how much they tithed in that year.

Now you think about it. You put in over a period of years, ten, fifteen, twenty maybe over a hundred thousand dollars in tithes. You think you are going to just walk out of that church and go to another church over some silly thing that hurt their feelings? I don’t think so. We need to stop running away from issues in our life and learn to face them by changing our selfish ways. If it takes the tithes you have stored up to make you deal with your people problems then so be it.

It is not that you can come in and say you want our $100,000 worth of tithes and we want to go to the next church. It is not going to happen. We are not going to let you take God’s money and go put it in the “SpendHouse.” It belongs in the STOREHOUSE!

How many churches would love to be able to have a position to do this for their people? Most of them can’t, because they are already locked in debt so tight they cannot wiggle.

Pastors are going to be screaming all over the land because they are going to say, “My God, those people are crazy; they are going to kill us. We can’t give up the tithes. We have got to pay the bank its money back with usury (interest). We have got to pay the salaries. We have got to pay the coffee machines. We have got to pay all these other things. We cannot give up the tithes.” They are not going to do it. They will preach against what we are preaching. But let me tell you something; if you are giving a check over every Sunday knowing that it is going to be spent back into the world, what good does it do?

What if it was stored for you, your family and other families? It is not the case that just because you put in $10,000 last year in tithes that you can take out $10,000 next month. This is not the way it works. The tithes have to be used for the investment purposes as well as being a provision for people. It is not to be used frivolously. It needs to be invested back into the body of Christ so that the people of God can prosper. Elders of the church, seasoned business men and women will be at your disposal to give you advice. All of the churches within the PMT Network will post all of its member’s products and services and encourage their people to use their services and goods.

When we go on TV and start making this known to people, the house of God is going to be full quickly. We are talking about reaching people who can understand what the church is all about, and they are working towards something that will be there to take care of them. This is what everybody wants. They want to be taken care of, but that is not what the church has been doing. The church has been just been taking and this has got to stop. We have to come to a place where we must live up to the principles God is showing us.

Praying Over Handkerchiefs

Special Anointings

In the summer of 1989 my weekly routine involved going to the early morning men’s prayer breakfast each Friday. As usual, I was the first to show up, and since I had a key to the building I started to make the coffee. After a couple of cups of coffee I wondered if anyone was going to show up.

I watched the clock tick away for twenty minutes, and still no one had shown. Then, I caught sight of an 18 wheeler slowly pulling up at the curb. The driver sat in his truck for a minute then headed toward the building. I greeted the grizzly looking man, asked his name and invited him in for a cup of coffee. He had never been to any of our prayer breakfast meetings and didn’t know any members of our church. As I waited a few minutes for others to show, the trucker began to tell me about his life.

He was suffering from various addictions and was on the verge of a divorce. His father was an alcoholic, as well as his brothers, who were always in conflict with one another. A short time later a couple of the regular members showed up, and as we prepared to pray for the trucker the Lord told me to take out my handkerchief and have everyone grab a corner; as we did the presence of the Holy Spirit filled us.

The trucker gave his life to Jesus; when he did, his countenance immediately began to change before our eyes. I instructed the trucker to take the handkerchief with him and tell his entire family what had happened. A few months went by and one Sunday morning I was surprised to see the once beaten down soul now dressed in a suit and tie with his wife and children at his side. After the sermon was delivered he asked if he could testify. The trucker told of his father and brothers being totally delivered of drug and alcohol abuse and how they gave their lives to Jesus. He still had the handkerchief with him. As the congregation filed out of the building, he came to me and gave my handkerchief back. As to say, thank you, a tear ran down his face; we shook hands farewell and thanked God together.
(Bible ref. Acts 19:11-12)

Part 1 – Ministry of Jesus

When Jesus was born in a manger, an army was commissioned to look for Him. Every child two years old and under was to be slaughtered, because King Herod heard thought a new, a true king was born. About the same time, an angel appeared unto Joseph and Mary and warned them to leave the town, for King Herod sought to take the life of their new born son, Jesus. They left the city and stayed away for a number of years. When an angel appeared to them once more, they learned that it was now safe to return, for King Herod was dead. This was just the beginning of many encounters with angelic hosts during the life of Jesus Christ.

Dear Prophet Kent,

Thank you again for coming and for all you gave to us. You present Our Father Papa God’s Words over His people and each of us gets to hear even more what He is truly like. I wrote down many of the words given to others to reflect on especially this Sunday on Father’s Day.

You carry such and incredible strong Anointing and my prayers are you always have His Grace to handle it…

You always bring MORE of God to this area and we go from Deep to Deep… through your ministering. When you speak in just a regular voice the Power on some of the words spoken through you is amazing. It pierces the heart and soul. For example…when you spoke about it was because of the LACK of God’s Grace that the psychics followed the fallen angels… it was soooooo BIG… sooooooo overwhelming how BLESSED we are that He would Choose us to be able to receive His Grace for Salvation and life.


“Greetings in Jesus name; I am Bishop Reyes, General Overseer of the Family Church of God in Riverside, California. You prophesied to our organizations in 1995 that in five years we would have 500 churches. We are at 443 and by the end of the year we will be over 500. Thanks be to God for you!

We are building a convention center to fit 10,000 seats and are planning to have our dedication in August 2000. The Lord blessed us with 40 acres of land next to city hall. God has been good! Please write back to see if you received this letter.”

A Time to Govern

A Word for the Body of Christ

By Crystal Wade

“The LORD by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens. By His knowledge the deeps were broken up, and the skies drip with dew.”
Proverbs 3:19-20 (NASB)

“The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words where their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their utterances to the end of the world, in them He has placed a tent for the sun, which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; it rejoices as a strong man to run his course. Its rising is from one end of the heavens, and its circuit to the other end of them; and there is nothing hidden from its heat. The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul; the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right; rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether. They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them Thy servant is warned, in keeping them there is great reward. Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults. Also, keep back Thy servant from presumptuous sins; let them not rule over me; then I shall be blameless, and I shall be acquitted of great transgression. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.”
Psalm 19 (NASB)

“Who is this that appears like the dawn, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, majestic as the stars in procession?”
Song of Solomon 6:10 (NIV)

“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I AM the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.”
Revelation 22:16-17 (NIV)

Father Time

I bless the experiential knowledge of El Elyon, our Heavenly Father, which is being revealed in vast array in the Exhorter time, turning the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers.

I bless the arrangement of the celestial bodies and their auxiliaries, the expanse, the sun and moon, the stars, and call them good in agreement with Yahweh Elohim. I bless the motion, air quality, flight patterns, weather, aroma, sound, light and color in the realms of heaven beyond the realm of earth to come into alignment with God’s original intent and covenant purposes. I bless their impact on time and timing, laws and weather in the earth realm. Father, send Your holy angels to wash the defilement from the celestial bodies and the sun and moon and all the heavenly hosts. Where they have been misaligned in order to misalign weather and time and laws on earth, we ask for and bless Your righteous alignment in them according to the holy patterns in Heaven.

Moon, Worship Patterns, and Time

I bless the wisdom and understanding and knowledge that You, Father, are giving of Your unconditional love of mankind through the Exhorter time. I bless the patterns and cycles of the moon, the new moon, and the full moon which reveal hidden wisdom about the Bride’s dominion through Her redeemed presence in the earth. I bless the wisdom of our Creator in designing the moon’s regulation of the waters and the atmosphere of the earth through its gravitational pull. I bless the worship patterns in the waters to be cleansed and released to resound, purify, and righteously align the waters, air, and land. I bless the moon’s regulation from heavenly places-reflective of the Bride’s presence in the earth-of the waters, the cleansing of air, and the weather patterns in the earth realm. I bless the Bride to rise, shake the chains off, and sit enthroned in the heavenly places (which is Her right), and as She does, to regulate the times, timing, laws, and all creation simply by taking Her rightful position in the heavenly places. I bless the regulation of time, timing, laws, and weather patterns by the vast authority of this Exhorter time.

In this time, Father, we submit to You, time, timing, and laws in the heavens and the earth. We ask for cleansing even as the moon pulls the tides which wash the air. May Your hand in Your Bride’s cleanse the times and fill them with purity and purpose from Heaven, Lord Jesus Christ by Your Blood.

I bless the knowledge and wisdom in Your Names of time in this time. I bless You, the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I bless the name of the Ancient of Days. I bless the name of Yahweh, I AM. I bless the name of Wisdom who mothers mankind.

Son Time

I bless the physical sun which gives joy and light to our physical eyes. I bless the sun to operate in alignment to God’s original intent and covenant purposes. I bless the governing of the sun as it regulates and provides nutrition to the vegetation of the earth, thus creating food for all the inhabitants of the earth. I bless the way the sun physically mirrors The Son who is The Light of the world, thus providing both physical bread and The Bread of Life.

Sun, Earth, and Laws

I bless the heavens which tell the glory of God. I bless the expanse of the galaxies which declare the work of His hands. I bless the time component contained in the daytime which pours out speech. I bless the time component contained in the nighttime-a time holy to the Lord-which reveals knowledge that we can understand through our physical senses (our physical “gates”). I bless the heavenly voices which emanate songs and words throughout the entire earth realm. I bless the tent placed in the celestial arena for the sun which spills forth joy and strength each day simply for shining forth the purposes of the Father—purposes of life, light, and hope to all the inhabitants of the earth. I bless the orbital patterns of the earth and moon. I bless that joy and strength to flow unencumbered to the earth and to affect the people of the earth.

Even as the earth is created to move with joy around the physical sun, the stars and celestial bodies sing and utter the wisdom and glory of God to the earth. We call them into righteous alignment, bless them, calling them good, and release their message into the earth realm to be heard and responded to! I bless the holy alignment of times-linear, cyclical, pulse, seasons, and fathering and mothering-through the righteous order of all the celestial bodies, including the sun and moon, that comes as a blessing from the Exhorter time. As the times come into alignment, I bless the weather patterns to respond accordingly to facilitate life, and life more abundantly.

From the heavens, the righteous alignment of Exhorter heavenly bodies governs the laws of Yahweh in the earth. I bless the heavenly speech of our Creator and Father in the heavens to bring forth the truth and clarity of Yahweh’s law, in its completeness, which restores the souls of mankind on earth. I bless Yahweh’s sure testimonies now released to make the simple wise. I bless Yahweh’s right precepts which cause the spirits of mankind to rejoice! I bless Yahweh’s pure commandments which bring light to the eyes of mankind, effecting healing from and restoration of tainted generational memories. I bless the clean reverence and righteous fear of Yahweh which endures forever. I bless Yahweh’s true and righteous judgments. These, our Father and Creator, are more desirable than gold, sweeter than honey, to mankind. I bless the warnings in Your Word and the reward in keeping Your Word. This knowledge of God revealed through the righteous alignment of the heavenly bodies in relationship to the earth in the Exhorter time keeps Your sons free from sin. I bless You, our Rock and Redeemer, for speaking Your glory into our hearts, writing Your laws in us, and setting up an internal compass to keep our words and our meditations pleasing in Your sight.

I bless the governing, the leading, and the inspiration of mankind on earth as the Exhorter time rightly aligns heaven and earth, speaking the righteous decrees of God from heaven into the spirits of mankind. I bless the God-sized visions as they are imparted into the sons in the Exhorter time. I bless the harmony that is being restored in time, timing, weather, laws, food, water, land, air, space, and between peoples in the Exhorter time.

Spirit Time, Reconciliation of People

I bless this Exhorter time to be filled with the knowledge of reality grounded in the truth of Who God is, spoken from the heavenly places. I bless this Exhorter time to present the reality of man’s separation from God and the sure consequences of sin tempered with the unconditional love of God and the absolute hope of redemption. I bless the Exhorter time to be filled with hope based on eternal reality. I bless the Exhorter time as it causes restoration of groups–family groups, ethnic groups, cultural groups, and nations. I bless the way the Exhorter time teaches us about timing and about gleaning from mistakes to grow in relation to groups–from family groups to nations.

I bless the hope that is released in spirits of people-Christians and pre-Christians-in this time. I bless the way the God of hope is filling us with all joy and peace as we trust in Him so that we overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. I bless the sufferings that the people and the earth have experienced in this Exhorter time, for it is the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings that brings the glory of God from heaven to earth. I bless this suffering to release the glory of God into the earth so that it is filled with The Glory as the waters cover the sea.

As times and laws and weather are aligned-and as hope is restored-I bless the great move of evangelism that will draw strength and impact from the Exhorter time. I bless the vision arising in the Bride. I bless the reconciliation in cities, across racial and political and social and gender lines, to arise! Arise, your time has come, your light has dawned!

Character of God

I bless that missing piece of the puzzle-the nature of God which has been eroded by storm damage caused by the thief-to be brought to the table at this point in time to turn the game into victory by drawing in the spirits and hearts of the people. I bless that piece to cause people to arise and to walk in dominion over all creation for the glory of God.

I bless the sons (and those who are not yet sons) in the name of Yahweh Shalom-the God of the present who heals our past, bringing us into harmony and peace. I bless the truth of His faithful, unchangeable, kind, and loving nature to be seen, heard, understood, received, and responded to. I bless the authority that is arising in the sons as they walk in the name of Yahweh Shalom. I bless the incarnated truth that is lived out before mankind that they may also know the One who has created and loved them.

I bless the light that the Exhorter time shines on the Teacher time and Giver time, helping to bring both time and individuals into fullness and wholeness.

I bless this Exhorter time to be saturated with a greater compulsion to please God rather than man, responding to the dominion songs in the heavens. I bless the message to be heard that acceptance by God is much greater than rejection by man. I bless the eternal song to be heard and received in deeper measures so the chaos of the earth can be deflected.

In this time, I bless the righteous commands of God which reverberate through time and space to be so deeply imparted into the hearts of the sons that we will rejoice to walk by principle even as we do seek to have relationship. However, whatsoever we do, whether we eat or drink or whatever we do, we do it all to the Glory of God, choosing Him over popular opinion. I bless the speaking forth-through the knowledge of God–the reality and truth of who God is into this particular time and season in society and in nations.

Fruit Released

I bless the fruit of the righteous alignment in the Exhorter time-the physical manifestation on earth of the water of life and the bread of life to feed the multitudes and to restore people to God based on true knowledge of His person.

I bless your physical heart, emotional heart, spiritual heart, and heart of your birthright. I say that it is good and right for you to who God created you to be. I bless you to know in this time that you were brought to the kingdom for such a time as this. I bless you to hold tightly to Him as you walk with Him, sharing in His sufferings, knowing that the suffering will end and hope will spring forth. The hope is that there is a beginning, an end, and a purpose to each trial. I bless you as you walk through the suffering. I bless your time in the secret, in the quiet place. I bless the glory of God through the knowledge of God and your suffering that you are releasing into the earth, glittering forth in brilliance. I bless you to know that you are changing the world with your righteous life.

Come! The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come!” The river of the water of life is free!

I bless you sons, I bless you Bride, I bless this Exhorter time in the name of the Ancient of Days who is the Great I AM-the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Amen.

The Lion of the Tribe of Judah

Jill’s Journal

Jill Thrift

“God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong” (1 Corinthians 1:27). As I look back six years ago, I see better how He used an awful trial that lasted nineteen months. I was fair game to my new condo neighbors who sadly had become experts in getting their way by bullying, threats, and intimidation. Although in the past I had been vulnerable to manipulation by such tactics, I have had many tests designed to renew my mind and strengthen my spirit so that I can stand erect in Christ. The couple that purchased the condo next door to me in 2006 quickly saw my gentleness welcoming them, and thought me an easy pushover.

What really bothered them is still a mystery to me, but they claimed that the water in my fountain was so loud that it posed a serious nuisance to them on the other side of the wall. The fountain had run for 24 years without a single complaint, and those of us who listened from inside the neighbors’ living room could hear nothing except a faint trickle when our ears were right up against the wall. Giving them the benefit of the doubt, I worked with three fountain experts and our groundskeeper to reduce and muffle the sound. The new neighbors were unwilling to take any measures on their side to resolve their own complaint, choosing instead to leave nasty phone messages saying it was my “problem” and that I need to “fix it.” Yet I had run out of ideas and consultants, and all attempts at friendship were simply ignored.

I was praying for them all along, but intercession intensified when I was delivered a suit, claiming $200 a day in damages for 9 months, and setting an injunction hearing to silence the fountain. The allegation was that I had violated the bylaws of our Condo Association. Although the Association reassured me that I had not, they did not want to stand with me and use their insurance because the premium would go up. That forced me to hire an attorney to represent me by myself. After reviewing the Association’s insurance, my attorney advised me that the Association was legally obligated to take the case. I could have forced them, but was I going to sue my own neighbors! At the injunction hearing, the new neighbors lied and their attorney threatened our groundskeeper, who got frightened and also lied. Two years earlier this same attorney had represented two strippers who sued the city of San Antonio for the city’s regulation of topless bars. However, miraculously the judge ruled I could operate it until trial.

On the day of the suit the Lord gave me Psalm 37. The opening verses capture the essence of the message:

  • Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong;
  • For like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.
  • Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
  • Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
  • Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this:
  • He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.
  • Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
  • Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret-it leads only to evil.
  • For those who are evil will be destroyed, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.
  • A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found.
  • But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy peace and prosperity.

Little did I realize how true these prophetic words would be. Through the following months I read and reread the Psalm, finding direction, affirmation for the position of my heart, and reassurance of the outcome against all apparent odds. My neighbors were embittered and seemed to thrive on perpetrating evil schemes and underhanded ways. They knew I would not respond in kind and were so sure of their victory. They were determined to do whatever it took to win their battle.

My battle was loving them and keeping my heart free of fear and hatred. I was harassed continuously with 5 AM phone calls, sirens directed into my courtyard, and vandalism during the night to the fountain and to landscaping. While the condos were in a secured community, there was no way to fully protect ourselves from one another from within. They always operated during the cover of night, and I never knew what I would wake up to find. In one of many journal entries during these months I wrote, “If I struggle loving those who hurt me, it’s because I do not yet have a deep enough revelation of how much I have hurt God and of the mercy, grace, and love He has shown me.” This was a humbling and sobering thought.

Many times, in the early morning or at dusk, I would go out in my courtyard and stand in front of the fountain with my arms extended toward my neighbors just blessing them and declaring God’s words over their lives. Each time I did I saw the lion over the fountain, and the water running from his mouth. How could I not think of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, and of the One who is the “Fountain of Living Waters?” (Jeremiah 2:13) How would He bring an end to this nightmare?

As the new year began, I drove my myself to a Christian prophetic conference in Denton, Texas called “Starting the Year Off Right.” It was wonderful to be immersed in worship, to be refreshed, and to be strengthened in faith. The day after I returned home to San Antonio, I received a legal notice that my neighbors had dropped their suit. There was never any explanation or acknowledgement from them. In fact, when I would run into them getting our mail, they would not look at me or speak to me. The day after their suit was dropped another condo neighbor, a real estate agent, informed me that my neighbors had listed their condo for sale. Nineteen months after they purchased, they sold their unit for a good financial profit. But they had lost so much more.

The Lord vindicated me as He had promised. Every detail of Psalm 37 had come to pass, just as He said. “A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found. But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy peace and prosperity” (Ps 37:10-11).
