‘Has ‘Your Book” Stopped Speaking to YOU?’


Not all who prophesy are prophets, but all prophets do prophesy. That however, is not all a prophet is called to do. A part of the calling of a prophet is to be a messenger to the Church and deliver the prophetic message regarding doctrinal issues. The prophet is also known to be the Church’s spiritual weatherman, interpreting the signs and wonders. They are watchman who go over the wall that separates the natural from the spiritual and discerns the works the enemy. There are many other functions in which the office of a prophet is responsible, which are not always received well.

    Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house,.”
    (Matthew 13:57)

The following prophetic message contains a word to the Church declaring our Lord is jealous and is calling His people back unto Himself. The enemy of God has led us astray by twisting religious clichés into our daily speech. This one cliché has robbed our Lord of His rightful position of glory and honor among His own people. These clichés are frequently used and have slowly turned the hearts of the body of Christ away from worshiping Jesus, to worshiping the Bible. This small and seemingly insignificant twist has caused God’s people to become blind to the issue. In this case, we see that the sheep have unknowingly created an idol before God, and that is ‘your book’.
This word is directed to all of us, including myself, please do not take offense with me. The purpose of this prophetic message is to prepare the body of Christ for what is ahead of us in the coming year(s). It is a warning to the body of Christ about how important it will become to have an ear to hear His voice knowing how we are to prepare.
The Body of Christ is in the midst of a great shift, and as you read this prophetic message you will see a need to stay in step. Drawing closer than ever to the Spirit of God. He is leading us into a higher level of praise, worship and ministry as we prepare for spiritual battle.
The Prophetic Message to the Body of Christ:
Do you hold ‘your book’ over your head and declare that ‘your book’ gives you eternal life? I tell you, ‘your book’ will not save you. When you worship ‘your book’ more than you worship Me, says our Lord, and you call it the ‘Word of God’. Do you not know that I Am the true ‘Word of God’?

    You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life
    (John 5:39, 40).

I Am not wood pulp and ink bound in genuine leather! I am Spirit and I tell you, ‘your book’ is your tuning fork. You are to use it to test what you hear. When you are not sure of what you heard is Truth go to ‘your book’. There I will show you if it’s Me or not. What you have learned from Me in the beginning will lead you into all Truth.
Many times, before as you were reading My power and anointing came upon you; do you think it was ‘your book’ that gave you this experience? Do you not know that it was I standing next to you when you felt as though Heaven rained down My glory upon you?
When the verses leaped off the pages and went into your spirit did you really believe that it was ‘your book’ that was feeding you the words that gave you this experience? Know it was I, your Savior, standing next to you. Didn’t you feel Me as I leaned over your shoulder and placed My finger on the chosen words in ‘your book’? With My power, the words came off the pages and went into your soul and made the transformation as if I had spoken to you audibly. Now I ask you, is this why you feel so compelled to worship ‘your book’ rather than Me?

    But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him(I John 2:27).

You even call ‘your book’ the “Word of God” but I tell you the truth, I Am the “Word of God.” Do you think that I died, gave you a book, and put you in charge? Is this the reason you continue to seek your book rather than Me? I tell you now; I am alive not dead as some have said. I Am the Word of God! And I Am not made of wood pulp and ink bound in genuine leather. I am the living Word of God and I will rule throughout eternity.
Therefore, if you want to continue to be feed from the true bread of life then feed upon Me. If you choose only to follow the book rather than coming to me. Then one day you will discover that the end has come. Blinded by your own reasoning, you will fail to see where you were supposed to be when I came for you.

    He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God(Revelation 19:13).

Remember when you loved to read ‘your book’? Now when you pick it up you struggle not knowing where to go to find the answers you are seeking.
The revelation that once flooded your soul like a fiery baptism now has turned cold and you are asking why. Have you so soon forgotten how close we were back then? You knew so little about the scriptures. You allowed Me to teach you My ways, and we shared intimate thoughts with one another. But now I see you found someone else to teach you what they know and shape you into what they want you to be. It is not I that has forsaken you nor have I turned away. When I see you with another sharing ‘your book’, it saddens Me to know that you have chosen to go the way of the Pharisees. These men worshiped the book as well and they did not know Me when I came to them, and I am the One whom the book is about.

    “I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive. How can you believe, who receive honor from one another, and do not seek the honor that comes from the only God?”
    (John 5:43, 44)

Nowadays it seems that I just get in your way. Therefore, I will just stand back and wait until you are ready to hear what I have to say.

    I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”
    (John 6:35)



To be clear, the Holy Scriptures is referred to as “the book” in this prophetic message. This prophetic message is not telling you to disregard ‘your book’ of Holy Scriptures. NO, quite the opposite. We are not to blindly following after voices that come to our heads or to our ears! The Holy Scriptures is our tuning fork which keeps our ears in tune with the voice of our Father, the Holy Spirit. Without the Scriptures we would be unable to keep in balance or have the reference to qualify what we are saying or doing as servants of the Most High. I see that this prophetic word reveals that we within the Church have begun to slowly tilt toward worshiping the book and have begun to idolize this wonderful and most precious gift from God, ‘your book’. The value of what has been preserved for us is priceless.
Thousands of men and women of God have tragically given their lives fighting to keep this book in print so that we would know our lineage and learn about our God. The balance is to keep our ears in tune with His voice by making ‘your book’ as your tuning fork. You will discover that your level of learning and knowing God’s will for your life will increase greatly. Most of all you will no longer hunger or thirst for more of Jesus for His anointing will pour out of you.

    Simon Peter answered [Jesus] and said, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.’ Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it‘”
    (Matthew 16:16-18)

The revelation Peter received is the very foundation of the Church! This is what Jesus is speaking to all of us. Hearing our Father, who is the Holy Spirit who is speaking to the Church that we are to follow.
Jesus never referred to the book as the Word of God; He always referred to ‘your book’ as the Scriptures. Throughout the writings of the New Testament we see that the testimonies given reveal that His Church was built upon the revelation of hearing God our Father in heaven.
The Holy Scriptures is one of the greatest gifts given to us for the purpose of rightly dividing the word of truth, especially when we are in need of confirmation from our Lord to clarify that we heard the true Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit uses the Scriptures to teach us how to discern good from evil. Therefore, we cannot allow ourselves to think that we can go through life without our Holy Scriptures. This valuable instrument is the number one place to start learning the thoughts and ways of our God and will become more valuable as you become a vessel for Him to speak to and through to others.
Jesus built His Church upon the precept that those who pray hear and obey are His brothers and sisters. The body of Christ, the Church, is to be led only by the head, Jesus Christ, the first born of many and is the rightful leader of all.

    And it was told Him by some, who said, “Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, desiring to see You. But He (Jesus) answered and said to them, “My mother and My brothers are these who hear the Word of God and do it.
    (Luke 8:20-21)

Knowing the Things of God

What does God think? Did anyone ever think to ask Him? Yes, we can pray to a God who speaks back! For most, this is a revelation in itself. However, it is true, God Does Speak. Have you ever run across a verse of scripture but did not understand it? Here is some good news. Pray and expect to hear an answer from the author Himself.
He has given us a way to know all things. Yet, few consider checking in with Him before reacting.
What about current political issues? Most of us just pray the way we think it ought to be. Praying is for consulting God on this issue. The majority of us have been taught that we cannot know the things of God. However, this is not Truth! If we were to really know the truth about the current issues we face, we would turn red faced. God’s ways are not our ways. His thoughts are not our thoughts. Do you believe that God might think we are all a little silly? He has given us a way to know all things. Yet, few consider checking in with Him before reacting.
For example, what does God think about the current issue of abortion? Just, think about it. For right now, let me share with you what God told me about the issue on abortion.
In 1993, I had a number of people asking me to seek God about the abortion issue. I was shocked to find out what He thinks about abortion.
Now, I don’t like the idea (of abortion) at all. For Christians, it is taboo. In 1993, I had a number of people asking me to seek God about the abortion issue. I was shocked to find out what He thinks about abortion. His answer came rather quickly. You know how He answers you. When He gives you His answer, it may take a couple of days to sort it all out. It takes the Holy Spirit to interpret the word for us. So, after God spoke, the Holy Spirit began teaching me what I am about to share with you.
First of all, God does not like murder. Secondly, He does not want His children practicing abortion. Thirdly, He does not care for those who are not His children. The last thing the Holy Spirit explained to me was this, if the followers of this world continue to kill their children through abortion, it will not be long before the Body of Christ will be the majority. I asked the Holy Spirit to show me in the scriptures for confirmation. So, He took me to the book of Hebrews chapter 12:3-11.
There I read where God the Father chastens those whom He loves. However, those that are not His children He hates. Now God does desire that all come into the kingdom of heaven. However, He is not interested in what the world outside of salvation does.

Do you think that you can make God do what you want Him to just because you found a verse or promise in the Bible?

The Holy Spirit began to ask me questions about the issue. He asked me, “Do you think that God is unable to answer the prayers of all the Christians that have prayed for the end of abortion? Does not God answer prayer?” I replied, “Yes, He answers prayer when we pray in His will.” Then Holy Spirit asked, “Do you think that you can make God do what you want Him to just because you found a verse or promise in the Bible?” I really did not know what to say. I had been taught that we could claim any or all of the promises of the Bible for ourselves. Also, that if I find it was God’s will for a generation to prosper all would prosper. Then the Holy Spirit began to ask me more questions.
He asked, “Do you think that God looks at all of you as equal?” I responded, “Well yes, we are all equal in the eyes of God. At least that is what I have been taught.” “Doesn’t the Bible say that He (God) is no respecter of persons?” The Holy Spirit had brought back to me the words of Peter and corrected me in the interpretation of that verse. “Do you live like a King? Do you have the same powers as Elijah or Elisha? Has God used you to raise the Dead?” I answered honestly, “NO!” “Then you are not all equal.” The Holy Spirit also, said, “When you enter the kingdom of heaven you will all have a designated place to spend eternity. Not everyone will be in the same position. You are all training in this world for the position you will hold for eternity. Depending upon our obedience to the Lord in this life will determine where we will sit with Him forever.

What Does God Think? There are so many things we can know.


    “For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light. If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.”
    Mark 4:22-23

However, we must first have an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church. What is the Spirit saying about abortion today? What Does God Think about abortion? What does He want us to do about it?
If they (unbelievers) repent and accept Christ Jesus they are no longer of the world. Therefore, they are His. The church should stand in judgment of itself. Not being so busy judging the people of this world.

    Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.”
    John 18:36

In the Days of the Prophetic

Many times, throughout history, we’ve had to gaze into the past to find out what is ahead of us. Most prophetic people spend most of their days looking ahead of themselves in search of what’s around the corner of Tomorrow. Yet there are times where even prophetic people need to investigate the past to find out what is coming.
In this month’s videos we will be looking at some old-line ministers. I say old-line ministers because they are people who have had to minister to long lines of people. As hundreds of people would line up to receive prayer for healing or receive a word from God they would find themselves inundated for hours on end ministering one after another. In this digital age we have discovered that the prophetic people find it more appropriate being able to minister whenever God calls them to not when they’re demand to.
In the olden days, when ministers were ministering, offerings were taken up and money was actually found in the offering plate. Even today it seems that we have it easier than they did in those days of old but we have a lot more villains to deal with than they did in their time. With Internet hackers and all kinds of problems with people stealing credit cards and attempting to try to receive something for nothing becomes the norm. I’m not complaining about the way things are today for it’s much easier if you know how to minister in the digital world. We no longer have lines of people standing right in front of us ready to be ministered to and we don’t have to go to great exuberance building a tent and bringing people in the way they did back in the old days; they did not even have air conditioning!
I feel very fortunate that I have a loyal group of people who support me in whatever our Lord leads me to during various seasons.
We are now journeying into a new area of ministry. Something from the past being introduced to things of the new. Those of you who don’t known about the old-time ministers, let me tell you- it is an eye opener for me. God has me going back into a spiritual time warp. This is what I’m talking about: God has me going to a Baptist Church, a Southern Baptist Church. The only reason I’m there is because they are hungry for God and want to experience Him in a greater way.
One of PMT’s ministers who lives here in Gainesville has been a part of this church for some time now. Many times, he has come to me talking about this young pastor that is at this Baptist Church. Our PMT graduate would come to me with stories about breaking out in tongues in the middle of the service. He said it was if he had fallen into a trance and couldn’t stop his tongue from wagging as the people were stunned and staring at him when he was done. To his chagrin he was surprised when one of the old timers came up to him and said; “Oh I pray that myself when I run out of words to say.” This was his first clue that these people were okay with the Spirit of God moving in them. Each time this minister prophesied or gave a word of knowledge their response dictated the fact that these people were spirit filled and did not know it; or at least they were wanting to be spirit filled.
This all made me so curious; I had to go check it out.
God kept pushing me to ask this minister if he would approach the pastor and see if he would allow me to come to the congregation. It did not take very long before the pastor came back replying that they were open for me to come and minister at their Baptist Church. So, the following Sunday morning we packed up the whole family and went and found ourselves sitting in a Baptist Church. It was like was if I was thrown back into the past, singing-along from the old hymnal songs, sitting quietly while listening to the sermon, then closing our Bibles and going home. I knew I was in for a real challenge telling these people about how to be baptized in the name of Jesus. You know they already think they are baptized in the name of Jesus. There were probably a few in there who really were but didn’t know it.
Starting the 19th of July, 2018, I’ll be ministering every Thursday night for the next 12 weeks at Grace Friendship Baptist Church. We have an ¼ page announcement running every week in the local newspaper, which you can see in a reduced size in the headline of this article.
I asked God what I am supposed to teach them, & as usual there was a long pause. Then I began to sense His unction, He began to lead me back to the old manual of The School of Prophetic Knowledge and then I knew what I was to teach them. So, this week we start with the first lesson on the School of Prophetic Knowledge with not only a group of Baptist people, good Baptist believing people, but also a lot of new people will show up. Hopefully this church will grow from this experience and maybe we’ll have something to start with that goes even farther, like Angels.
There is nothing more satisfying than to see a bunch of ‘Bapticostal people’ meaning Pentecostal Baptists come into the fullness of Christ Jesus.

Knowing His Voice

God is bring un-nerving calamity that will drive people back into His Church. When people see the wrath of God and his heavy hand coming down upon the nations, people will turn and run back to the House of God. The one thing that we want is new people added to His Kingdom.
We are only in this life for a short period of time. This is not heaven nor will it ever be. This short time we have is just a blink in eternity. We need to make the best of it now. We cannot look for the comfort levels. We need to look at ourselves and judge whether we are in His Will or not.
It is only by association that the anointing comes. If you do not hang around it, you will not get it.
In my own ministry, there is a need to teach to the same group of people over and over. The hit and miss approach of preaching on hearing God is not going to work. It is very difficult to teach people how to hear the voice of God; unless you have the time to walk them through a number of life experiences the connection will not be made. A certain measure of God’s anointing helps to open the heavens in order to hear His voice. One way of receiving it is through the association with others who are anointed to hear Him. If you do not hang around it, you will not get it. If it passes through, you may get a touch of it. It may rub off on you but you will need to receive a larger measure of His anointing in order to make a lasting connection.
Paul said; “pray without ceasing(1 Thessalonians 5:17). You may ask how do you do that? First of all, prayer is not a one-way source of communication. Prayer is a special way of communicating with our heavenly Father. So, to pray without ceasing would be more of an open line to His throne, isn’t that what you want? There are many voices that come into our hearing throughout each day. What Apostle Paul is saying is that you need to have your spiritual antenna up at all times and keep it locked in directly to His voice and only His voice.
Many times, we find God has moved in a new direction and are ability to find Him becomes challenging. It is then you need to start moving into His favorite game, “Hide-n-Seek”. This is when you find yourself in search mode going up and down the His spiritual hallway looking for the door you’re to go through. Keep knocking on each door until you hear Him, then reset your dial and adjust your antenna right their until He moves again.

    For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened(Matthew 7:8).

When you are in the ‘hallway’ you should not make major decisions. You must wait until you are in the room comfortable, secure and confident you are with Him. If you make changes in the midst of God’s wave of changes you will mess up. If we let God lead each and every one of us then He will help us find out who we are in Him; no matter how changing life maybe in the process. God has a plan and He getting you ready for what is about to take place.

    God said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice (1 Kings 19:11-13).

A lot of people are proclaiming that everything is great and good but when it all falls apart those people who rested on those words are going to be devastated. There are people who will prepare for what’s coming. It is important for us to stay out of debt and try to be as liquid, as possible.
To be a poor man is a bad thing; however, it is fare worse to without cash and deep in debt. You will be worse off than person who didn’t have anything. It is easier to find bread for today than have to find bread for today, yesterday and the day before. Paying for your past pleasures is not what I call fun and exciting.
For years we have heard that we need to stay out of debt. Yet, people wonder why. They thought everything was getting better. We have got to know what God wants us to do in all financial arenas in order to have foresight on what we need and don’t need. We need 20/20 foresight. The only way to get that is to be on the same channel as our Lord and work under His personal guidance.
When we know what God wants us to do and we do that then we will know we will be okay.
The anointing is coming and it will tell certain people what to buy and/or what to sell, when to sell and where to buy. God will begin to prosper those who hear Him. He will take us through a time that is very challenging; however, it can become very exciting, in a good way if you are hearing His loving voice, as He guides you through this world’s chaotic maze.
It can be a little like the game of ‘Dodge-Ball’. When you know what God wants you to do, then you know you’ll be all right. You will be able to dodge every fiery dart the enemy throws at you. God’s word will always test you to see if you will trust Him. Once you have perfected the act of knowing in your ‘knower’ that you have truly heard Him then all you have left to do is Pray, Hear and Obey and it will all be okay.

Fish Bait Prophecy

Have you ever wondered why your prophecy did not come to pass? Shouldn’t there be a stricter judgment enforced against those who prophesy in the name of Jesus and it not come to pass? Why is it sometimes you know without a doubt you heard God and you spoke His Word but it did not come to pass?

    Who is he who speaks and it comes to pass, When the Lord has not commanded it?(Lamentations 3:37).

There is a lesson to learn here that everyone who prophesies should know. It happens rarely, but sometimes God will set you up to deliver His Word, yet He knows beforehand that it will not come to pass. We have a term for this. We call it a “fish bait prophecy”, because when it happens to you it really makes you stink. You can deliver His word and you know that you know in your knower that you have heard His voice clearly. He even gives you a name and time it is to come to pass; however, when the designated time has passed you have egg on your face and you want to find a hole and pull the earth over yourself. God does not care about your reputation or if you look good in the eyes of men. As long as He gets what He wants done then He will use whomever He wills to send His word.
Do you recall the story of Jonah and the whale? Most of us remember this story being told or read from various children’s books, for it is a fascinating biblical event. Jonah at first did not want to deliver God’s word, which was “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry out against it; for their wickedness has come up before Me(Jonah 1:2).
Because Jonah did not want to do as the Lord commanded, he boarded a ship departing from a nearby port. It wasn’t very long before God caused the seas to roll and the storm to toss the ship around until finally the crew threw Jonah overboard. Isn’t it just like God? When we are not in His will things just turn upside down, especially when you blatantly disobey His word. It was the same for Jonah when God sent a whale to swallow and deliver him to Nineveh and spew him out on the beach for all to see. When God wants you to do something for Him and you have committed to doing everything He commands of you, you will fulfill that promise one way or the other, either the hard way or the easy way.
You can image what Jonah looked like after spending three days and nights in the belly of the whale. We know the symbolism of this part of the story prophetically speaks of our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus, coming out of the tomb on the third day, which carries a very powerful message. However, we are headed in a different direction to stress another point found in this wonderful event. When Jonah finally decided to follow God’s commission, he was delivered and immediately started speaking what God had placed on his heart.

    Then Jonah cried out and said, ‘Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!‘” (Jonah 3:4).

However, when forty days had passed the great city was still standing and had not been overthrown. Jonah was very angry with God for making him deliver His word. God had changed His mind after the King had everyone repent and fast in ashes and sackcloth. Well, that was not the deal. Jonah obviously felt like God should do what He said regardless, so Jonah felt betrayed and went out of the city and found a place where he could feel sorry for himself.

    Then he wished death for himself, and said, ‘It is better for me to die than to live‘” (Jonah 4:8).

God came to Jonah and in His own way showed him that he should not be put out because He did not kill 120,000 people just so he could be right.
You see, serving God is not always rewarding in the way we may think. Sometimes being used of God means sacrificing our dignity. We either serve God or man, but we cannot serve both. If you get too haughty and God sees that you need to be humbled, He may make you a spectacle by serving you up as fish bait, which is not too palatable for many. In the end do all you can to remain humble, give all the glory to Him, and be willing to be used of God no matter what the cost, for that is the price of being a true servant of God.

    However, when He, the Spirit of Truth, has come, He will guide you into all Truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come
    (John 16:13).
