Have you noticed that the church is not victorious in many of its battles? The church has cried out against issues such as abortion, same sex marriage, serving in the military, violence on television and video games, and a number of other saber-rattling, but has made little to no headway. Here is why:
If God Does Not Speak Then Shut UP!
First and foremost, the greatest problem within the church is that the mainstream or majority of the body of Christ does not believe anyone can really talk to God and receive a clear answer or direction. This ignorance reveals that many within the mainstream do not believe what is written in the Bible, for everything in the Bible is about hearing God. Without consulting our heavenly Father about what we should do, someone starts a battle cry against a group or issue. They get the idea that all Christians don’t like what is happening in the world and, on their own, they decide to declare war. If you are not going to seek God for His approval to go to war over any issue you will always lose, because you will not have His Word to back you!
It’s All About the Attitude
The second thing that has kept the Body of Christ from being victors in the eyes of the world and our heavenly Father is our attitude. The Church should not be the manic macho group that goes around condemning and judging the world. We are NOT called to judge the ways of the world. The commandments from our Lord are very clearly stated; for we are not of it and we are not to rule over it. It belongs to a different ruler, Satan himself. In Jesus’ own words He commands His Church, “Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven” (Luke 6: 36 & 37). We are not called to judge the world; however, we are to hold only those of us in the church accountable to what is right and just in the eyes of God according to His word. “And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world” (John 14:47). It pays to obey the convictions within our heart, even when we do not think we have done anything wrong, for it is the Holy Spirit who is judging us. Therefore, we need to pray the prayer of forgiveness. “When we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world” (1 Corinthians 11:32).
On the other hand, we are to judge ourselves, also those who are in the body of Christ. The protocol for how to judge other believers is very clear. The biblical order for having someone’s inappropriate lifestyles or heinous actions judged and dealt with can be found in Matthew 18:15-20. There are leaders within the body of Christ who are anointed and chosen by our Lord who have the power to make final judgments within the Body of Christ. Jesus commissions His disciples in John 21:23, “‘Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.’ And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.'”
We even see in scripture where God empowered leaders who demonstrated their power in 1 Timothy 1:15-20 by enforcing the commandment on earth as it was declared in heaven. There are proper settings for governing the Church established and ordained by God. There is an order for handling individuals or groups of believers according to these scriptures and their examples.
Terrestrial Christians vs. Celestial Christians
ID of the Terrestrial Christian: one who is born-again and saved from eternal damnation and baptized in the baptism of repentance. They have a form of godliness but are “unloving, unforgiving, slanders, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying the power” (2 Timothy 3:3&4). Not believing in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit or that spiritual gifts are for today. These types of Christians rarely help the church and seem to enjoy coming against everyone outside of their own congregations.
ID of the Celestial Christians: Christians who have been born-again saved from eternal damnation, baptized in water, the baptism of repentance, also known as the baptism of John the Baptist. These Christians have also been empowered by the baptism of the Holy Spirit, also known as the baptism of Jesus Christ.
Not all Christians are the same and we are not all equal. How could we think that we all have received from God the same blessings, beauty, intelligence, humor, talents and even spiritual gifts? Life is not fair and we are not all equal. Although, it sounds good to tell everyone they are all equal and you have been told at some point that God has no favorites. Well, then what about King David, a man after God’s own heart, and his son Solomon the richest man in the world in his day and forevermore, as recorded in the Bible? What matters to God is what you do with all that He has given you in this life.
You may be living the most horrible life one can imagine. If so, I encourage you to be an overcomer and stretch yourself to do more than anyone expects you to do, and even God will notice and reward you. We are rewarded by what we do, not by who we are. Your eternal blessing could be the greatest in all of heaven depending on what you do with what God gave you while you were on this earth. Jesus has told us, “Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given” (Mark 4:24).
You see, it’s easy to begin climbing out of your slump, depression, financial problems, health problems and whatever else that is holding you down. All you have to do is pray, hear and obey, and with this one principle you will receive life more abundant as Jesus promised in this life as well as the life to come (see John 1:10b). If you do all that the Lord asks of you He will continue to reward you even when all others reject you.
“There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies; but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory” (1 Corinthians 15:40-41).
No matter how small or insignificant you might think of yourself remember you are a very important part of God’s plan for His Church. If you are a Celestial Christian you will follow the call of God upon your life and the church will prosper because of you. The body is only 100% when all the members are operating in unity, synced together by the power of God’s love for this lost and self-destructing world.
Our Weapons for Spiritual Warfare
Maybe you remember the day in Iraq when our troops and allies entered Baghdad; it was considered a major victory. In the natural realm this would be true; however, looking at the spiritual side, the victory was when our troops tied a cable around the statue of Saddam Hessian and toppled it to the ground. This was a sign from God that we too will be taking down idols and major strongholds that stand against the Son of God. The Holy Spirit is increasing our power and distributing His weapons of warfare to knock down wicked idols and not just in the natural. He is going to start knocking down idols even in your own homes.
Our weapons are listed in 1 Corinthians 12:1-11, the nine spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit, and in Romans 12:3-8 which lists various ministries afforded to us to accomplish God’s will, to win the battle against the devil who comes to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). We sharpen our weapons and train daily to perfect a LOVE for the lost souls by practicing these nine acts of God, which give us the power of the Holy Spirit to win over the sinner. The sinner will always be controlled by the devil and will win in any conflict when you try to use their weapons of warfare. We can never when any battle when we try to use the devils weapon; anger, vengeance, boasting, fighting, swearing, killing, destroying, mocking or murdering and say we are serving God are truly Terrestrial Christians.
These are the weapons of a Celestial Christian
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law and those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires” (Galatians 5:22-24). With the gifts, power, fruit and calling upon our individual lives we can turn this old world back to its rightful owners, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

Comments and Testimonies
New King James Version (NKJV)
I’ve been listening to ‘The School of Prophetic Knowledge’ again, and realize how much my life has been changed/transformed by all that I’ve learned and applied this past year and a half. I’m on Lesson 10 (again) and you said that when we find out what our gift is, and start using it, the Lord really blesses it. This is so true! The combinations of Intercession and Writing have really come together, and the Lord’s favor is on my life, in a way I’ve never known before. This Prophetic Ministry has filled my heart with joy, and has given me purpose beyond anything I have ever done before. It has a way of taking what I’ve been ‘practicing in writing’ for years, and given me a platform to use it to touch the world with God’s love. I am so grateful every day!
Hi Prophet Kent,
I just signed up today for the ministry partnership under email address. I felt led by the Lord to support your ministry, it happened as I was driving my car I was listening to a CD about faith by Pastor Charles Vance and I was touching buttons on the steering wheel on the car to change the screen displays and all of a sudden the strangest thing happened your prophecy you sent to me by email back in December which I listened to a few times all of a sudden was playing in my car through my cell phone through the bluetooth and the speaker system, It was as though an angel put it through my phone to play through an app. it truly freaked me out while I was driving. It played over and over again 3 times and it finally stopped, I was trying to shut it off and it kept on playing until the 3rd time the playing was finished, the Lord has his ways of speaking to us. It woke me up and I felt strong to support your ministry monthly, you remind of God’s Elijah a man of character and integrity. It also gave me strength and Faith to make through when things seem not to go right.
God bless you and your family; your newsletters are encouraging!!
Greetings Man of God!

I am convinced that you know the LORD in a way that only a few of us do. Your message about the angelic visitation was hilarious! Yes, indeed I have asked the LORD (within my heart) about stuff and HE replied in a most intelligent, deep and funny way that I just burst out laughing.
May the LORD bless you abundantly.

What is Prophetic Counseling?
There is a difference between receiving Prophetic Counseling vs. Personal Prophecy.
When giving prophetic guidance and counseling it helps to know more about the person. The difference is when you receive a prophetic word from God He is telling you what He wants to say. When I am ministering in prophetic counseling He is giving me answers to what you need to know and what to do in order to receive the results you are looking for. When emailing or visiting over the phone most of the time God gives me the answers within seconds, if they are warranted questions. My understanding of this scripture below is different than what the Word of Faith movement taught me:
“For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
Anytime I am with someone or chatting via email or other ways I am listening to what God has to say. The is a totally different understanding of this verse rather than what Word of Faith has been teaching over the years; “Whatever we agree upon it will come to pass” one major flaw is the one person left out of this formula, GOD!
The partnership level between being a Prophecy Partner and that of being a Family Partner are different and one does not automatically cover the requested offering for the other.
What do Prophetic Family Partner’s Receive?

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 long term relationships with the people who have a real desire to learn more about what God is doing today.
Since 1989, I have ministered to over 120,000 people via prophecy as of May 1995. I receive hundreds of prophecy requests each year and I will continue to send out personal prophecy via Audio Email and on CD’s to those who are seeking God.
In addition to the prophetic gift God has given me, the Lord has also directed me to become a Prophetic Pastor to those who will receive me. In this new capacity, I can sew 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.
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 Telephone Access Card. The Access card allows Family Partners to reach me during times of trouble or when having difficulty finding God’s will when making tough decisions. When you use the Access card, I will seek God’s direction for you and help determine how God wants to meet your immediate needs.
3 John 2
In HIS service,
Receiving Your Personal Prophecy
Though a prophet may receive a monetary blessing when giving a person a word from God, he is not to be mistaken for a hireling. A prophet who is a hireling will give a false prophecy at the request of his financial provider for monetary gain.
In contrast to these false prophets, there are men of God who desire to only speak God’s words and to reveal God’s plans for the people. These men receive their spiritual blessing from God and their financial blessing from God’ people.
Old Testament Times
In the Old Testament we find that the Lord commanded Samuel, a prophet of God, to prophesy over a young man who would be coming his way around lunchtime. The Lord indicated that this young man’s name was Saul and he would be looking for his father’s lost donkeys.
I Samuel 9:6
Today’s Spiritual Guidance
As it was in the Old Testament it is today; it is not evil to seek a prophet for spiritual guidance or direction from God.
I Samuel 9:7
Then Saul’s servant said, “Look, I have here at hand one fourth of a shekel of silver. I will give that to the man of God, to tell us our way.”
I Samuel 9:8
In this and other scriptures throughout the Bible, God has shown us that we must support his prophets. These men of old had conviction that they must bless the prophet, Samuel, for his intercession. God wants His people to be cheerful in giving.
II Corinthians 9:6,7
