“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants-things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John,”
Revelation 1:1 (NKJV)
Part of me really wants to share what I have been told regarding the book of Revelations, but I do my best not to teach too much on the topic. There are certain things that I have been shown that I am not at liberty to speak about until such time His Word has been sent from His throne.
Most everyone thinks that they can figure out an accurate time line just by comparing the scriptures with the events of today. There is so much more to know and understand about this wonderful book of prophecy. There is one thing I will share that I have learned about this great book. I have noticed that the battle cannot begin until the angels of God have delivered His Word and it has been devoured by His prophets.
Once the prophets have His Word in them the angels will be waiting with great anticipation for the prophets to begin prophesying the words that were sent to them. Until the prophets speak the Word on earth as it has been declared in heaven the angels of God cannot do anything. They lay in wait for the hour, the day, the month and the year to be released by the word of the prophets.
“So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. The angel whom I saw standing… there should be delay no longer, but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets”Revelation 9:15,10:5-7
When the angels of the Lord come bringing the word of God in the form that the prophets can digest and understand, only then will they know the will of God and what needs to be spoken on earth in accordance with His Word in heaven.
“Then I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. But when I had eaten it, my stomach became bitter. And he said to me, ‘You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings'”
After the prophets have the knowledge that they received from the angels, a strange thing will begin to happen. The angels will start pleading with the prophets to prophesy the words that were written in the little book that they ate. You see the angels cannot begin the war until the prophet’s start prophesying that which God has declared. So what are the things these prophets will be prophesying?
“These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire”.
Revelation 11:6 (NKJV)
When the enemies of the church realize that these prophets have the ability to bring havoc into their world, they will send out assassins to kill the prophets in order to shut off God’s word from being prophesied. After they kill the prophets, they will begin to celebrate the deaths of those who brought the plaques and turn the waters to blood.
“And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth”.
(Revelation 11:10 (NKJV)
However, to the startling surprise of the enemies of God, He will raise His prophets from the dead and they will ascend unto heaven.
“Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, ‘Come up here.’ And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them”.
(Revelation 11:11, 12 (NKJV)
I do not think that we truly know the power that we have with our words. Not just in casual conversation, but also when we know that something we have said has a strange feeling attached to it. There have been times when I have experienced His Word come up through me, and as I spoke His Word, to my amazement I felt as though fire was coming out of mouth, even though I was speaking in mild and calm manner.
Remembering this, I cannot help but tell you about an old prophet that passed on to glory in 1965. His name is William M. Branham and he was God’s prophet for that generation; he was used of God as many witnessed the raw power of the Holy Spirit working signs and wonders through his ministry. I have enjoyed studying about his ministry, and there is one event that I think is worth mentioning in this week’s article.
There was a city where a group of congregations joined together and rented the largest building in town to hold a campaign for Brother Branham, what we today call a conference.
Before he began ministering, Brother Branham was strongly warned about a man in the town who seemed to always show up and try his best to shut the meetings down.
Well, Brother Branham was not too concerned and just decided to let the Lord deal with the man if he was to have a problem with his preaching on Jesus. Sure enough, as Brother Branham was right in the middle of his sermon, the fellow showed up. He came storming down the aisle headed for Brother Branham. The large man was wearing overalls and looked like he could really hurt someone. Brother Branham was a small man on the outside but always had a huge angel at his side.
The man stood at the foot of the stage, shaking his finger, threatening Brother Branham, claiming he was a charlatan and the he said, “I adjure you, in what name do you do these things?” Brother Branham very calmly laid down his bible on the pulpit as he looked straight into the man’s eyes and said, “In the name of Jesus Christ about whom you know very little.”
The man dropped dead right where he once stood. Brother Branham was not surprised one bit, but everyone else stood in total fear of the Lord. The meeting stretched on for almost a week, each night the building was filled to the limit.
“Do not touch My anointed ones, and do My prophets no harm.”
I am not saying that I am one of the prophets mentioned in the book of Revelation, for I truly believe they will be a younger generation of men and women. My time has already passed; therefore, I am seeking to train and teach as many young men and women in the prophetic as possible. We have a few now with whom I am very humbled to be associated.
As of today, we have over 356 ministers who have gone through our School of Prophet Knowledge, and many of them are working full-time in the ministry. All of them are ordained through Prophetic Ministries Tabernacle and carry ministerial licenses to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit, in the mighty name of Christ Jesus and in the radiant love of our heavenly Father.
Be sure and watch the video messages that are at the end of each prophetic message.

Prophecy is the testimony that Jesus is not dead but Alive and Speaking to you and I.
Awesome! I was just on your website to get the link to send to a friend and the video on the front page started playing and it started answering some questions I had been seeking God about!
How amazing is that???????
Thank you for your love for JESUS which in turns makes your ministry victorious! I looked all over for guidance to get out of legalism and the religious spirit and now you and your ministry are helping me walk this glorious journey for the KINGDOM of GOD!
I have unspeakable PEACE! No amount of money can purchase that! JESUS IS LORD! BE BLESSED! BE FAVORED! BE THE ONE TO REACH OUT TO THE ONE!

Dear PP Kent,
We have just received the 5 prophecies you sent, so I wanted to let you know they did come through just great.
I want to thank you for being so faithful, and sensitive, to the Lord’s timing. I knew the order was going in late, and we had no chance of receiving the family words for Christmas. However, I want you to know this very day is the day we dedicated all our sons to the Lord (in their respective years), and my husband was ordained as a minister of the Gospel. We celebrate this day annually, and there could be no better gift than what you sent as you were faithful to release the word of the Lord to us.
I am blessed beyond words, and renewed in hope.

I can’t thank you enough, or express my appreciation adequately for your taking the time to receive a word for me. This word was truly manna for me, after a long season of perplexity about many things, while trying to remain focused and single minded through it all.
When I first heard of you, I had some doubts; and also had close friends try to discourage me from contacting you. But I kept the matter in prayer and when I felt that it was the Lord leading me to contact you, that was all I needed.
God bless you for your obedience. This is the only time I have not been in a position to receive (unsolicited) prophetic ministry for years – God always sends someone to me at just the right time. Thank you for being that individual now.
in Him, JE, Jane Elizabeth Schaech
