In the summer of 1989, I was asked to join The Southwest Conference of Apostles and Prophets to be held in Dallas, Texas. I was new to the ministry and felt so honored to be a part of such a distinguished group of senior ministers. I received a formal invitation in the mail about a month before the conference was to meet and it seemed to take forever for the days to go by.
Finally, the day arrived and I was headed to Dallas, wearing my finest suit and tie for the big event. As I drove happily, I was not really thinking of anything in particular when God said, “Keep your tongue to roof of your mouth and I will send one to defend you.” I had no idea what He was talking about or when this commandment was to be initiated, so I kept driving not giving too much thought to what our Father meant. I wondered if maybe He just did not want me to talk too much at the conference.
The meeting was held at the Doubletree Hotel north of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. After everyone had located their assigned seating, the meeting began. The meeting was composed of about 40 well-known ministers. It did not take too long before I noticed a number of the men looking my direction, as they leaned over appearing to ask the person next to them who I was. I felt no discomfort, for I was still riding high on the fact that I was in the presence of these powerful men of God.
I soon began to figure it out that this was a business meeting of sorts. A discussion began about what action might need to be taken in regards to a certain minister. I, along with a few other men around me, began looking around wondering who they were talking about. Then a few clues began to surface as questions were asked about this minister. I recall one minister from the Boston area stood up in defense of the minister in question. He stated that he knew of a prophet who offered pieces of his t-shirt that he had worn while in prayer to God for an offering. He went on to say that if churches would put these prophets on their payroll they would not have to do such things in order to keep their ministries alive. Then a prophet from Oklahoma stood up announcing that this prophet that was the center of this controversy was sending out prophesies without the oversight of an apostle. Right behind him stood an apostle who began to demand action against this prophet in question because he was prophesying outside of the church. Many other ministers still did not know who they were talking about, although the realization that I could be this unknown prophet began to settle in.
The morning session flew by and then we all moved to a large ball room to have lunch and hear a message from Pastor John Hagee from San Antonio, Texas. There were about 500 ministers from around the world. Only invited ministers were allowed to attend any of the meetings, and after hearing the message from Dr. Hagee I could understand why, for he railed upon the ministers by name who he considered to be a disgrace to God and the church saying things that were not for the ears of the milk-fed Christians.
After we broke up the lunch meeting and heard the message from Dr. Hagee, we returned back to the meeting room where we started earlier that morning. To my surprise, the men on both sides of me had moved their seat to another table. It was strange, but I thought maybe they just wanted to sit by people they knew. However, right before the meeting got started one of the ministers came over to my table with tears in his eyes and gave me a scripture that was intended to comfort me. I thought that was rather odd, because I was feeling just fine and could see no reason to be concerned. As the head minister at the table began to open the meeting up for new business, a man stepped into the room that was not present during the morning meeting. Immediately this man was acknowledged and many stood up in honor of his presence. As he made his way to the table, he must have noticed that there were not many chairs available for him.
Seeing me with two empty chairs, one on each side of me, he started making his way toward me. As other ministers tried to give him their chair, he would quickly thank them and continue walking my way until he was finally sitting right beside me.
After everything settled down the head table started the meeting back up right where they had left off. It did not take long for everyone in the room except the minister who had just sat down next to me to know that I was the prophet whose integrity was being questioned. I found it odd, that no one ever addressed me directly. Lists of allegations that were formed against me; many opinions were openly presented for the ministers to consider.
Normally, I would have stood up and given these men a piece of my mind, but I was under such a wonderful covering of God’s grace I just kept smiling at everyone remembering what He had said to me as I drove to the meeting. “Keep your tongue to the roof of your mouth and I will send one who will defend you.” As the list was read and the meeting opened for more discussion, I noticed that the minister who had sat down next to me stood up. The head table recognized him, and when he opened his mouth it was like a roaring fire was coming out of him. He began to point out that he had been practicing all of my alleged wrongdoings, and doing so without the oversight of an apostle. He responded as though they might have been talking about him. The men at the head table immediately went into spin mode as they began to back down from the allegations, assuring him that they were not accusing him. Then the man, still steaming, said, “I don’t know who you are talking about here today, but I would advise you not go with what you are planning or you will find yourself coming against me and every prophet that is doing the will of God.” Immediately, the meeting moved on to another topic as the man of God leaned over and shook my hand and left the meeting. I was in awe of what had just happened. The man of God was the late Leonard Fox, who was on the forefront of the Later-Day Rain prophetic movement of the early days. Prophet Leonard Fox ministered alongside of the likes of William Branham, A.A. Allen, Jack Cole Sr. and many others who have gone on to be with our Master. Needless to say, I was never again harassed by any of these ministers.
Leonard Fox was a rare gift to the Body of Christ, an excellent expository preacher, a man with a vision for missions and church planting, and a prophetic ministry that touched thousands of lives. We will all miss him profoundly! He was a great spiritual mentor and pastor. Brother Fox was a foundation builder, mentoring many young preachers and helping them find God’s way. We honor him as a true father of the faith and Prophetic Pastor.
Leonard Fox passed away on April 7, 2012. The Celebration service for Pastor Fox was at Amistad Cristiana Church, located at 863 N. Mt. View in San Bernardino, California.

Comments and Testimonies
New King James Version (NKJV)
Very inspiring! I thank you for being so candid about your feelings and journey. I think this message has really raised the bar on my hope of God still using me. I know I have dealt with some of those same thoughts and feelings just like any other person.
I was amazed at the definition of prosperity! There are so many words we do that with. “Love” would be one of them. We say things like, “I love chocolate cake” which then diminishes when we use “love” in the biblical sense. It’s not the same as using “there, their or they’re”. We use the same word “love” for God’s love for us. We don’t differentiate between “eros, philos and agape”. We might mean it different, but our subconscious still hears the same word.
Thank you Pastor/Prophet Kent,
This is indeed and so many ways is an accurate and timely word for which I surely rejoice and pray through on.
As you spoke to Michael my son and it has been confirmed with true visions and many dreams bearing it out, so, I feel that this too in my case is one of those God words.
Many blessings and heart felt appreciation.My words are set to bless and not curse what God has given to me. Again, Thank you and God multiply Blessings Rev. Michael
PS. What a word of confirmation as to even what God spoke to me even to the text.
Thank you for this encouraging word.
It even came on my birthday! I have experienced all of the above at some time or another. Once I “accidentally” sat among the leading prophets and apostles at Bill Hammond’s church. I was uncomfortable as I was aware of many people looking at me wondering who I was and what I was doing there. (I got there before they all came in and sat around me) Later I was called out and it was prophesied over me, “Yes, you are one of these.” What a divine set up! Still very few know my name, but I am OK with that. I am only looking to hear and obey and say whatever the Spirit of God gives me to speak. I have just come through a 2 year season where it seemed like many were being used to silence my prophetic voice – even leaders who asked me to teach on prophecy! I have learned that often “Man’s rejection proceeds God’s promotion!” It keeps us in that place of only saying what God has to say instead of our fleshly opinions. What is salt without a little seasoning? I believe many of the prophets are transitioning into a new season where God will require us to speak warnings and loving correction in a bolder and more passionate way. We have spoken so many personal words into lives to impart destiny, callings and stir up the gifts and that is all good, but these times demand a shout that will awaken and prepare the church. I was awake all night awaiting the arrival of my new grandson, who I believe the Father has called to be a prophetic voice like Samuel from a young age. The anticipation outweighed the desire for sleep. As we anticipate the Bridegroom’s return we also need to have such a desire that we dare not sleep. Blessings on your ministry and keep sharing the prophetic word of encouragement. It is life giving.
Thank you Prophet Kent for this article.
I have been through a very long transition period (still occurring) and I don’t hear anything much. You had given me a word in June about the trials and sufferings and even stated that it will feel like God isn’t with me even though I am doing everything to please Him. I was to be assured He was and things will progress. This gives me hope for January’s gathering when the elders will be laying hands on the attendees according to 1 Tim 4:14. I am expecting to be “ignited” to hear the angel that The Lord will send so I may exercise the gifts given to me as well. You are my mentor and I look up to you with absolute respect for the things you go through to continue as a prophet. It’s intimidating and satan tells me I do not have what it takes but I know he is a LIAR and God will give me everything I need to fulfill my purpose. I want to be a part of that remnant God needs for the upcoming harvest. Transition is preparation and I am running this race head on regardless of the secular realm. Love your uplifting articles. Keep them coming!
God bless you and keep you,

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.

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
