Three years ago our Lord instructed me to begin commissioning various people into the ministry. Now, this is not the same thing as imparting spiritual gifts according to 1 Timothy 4:14 which reads, “Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.” However, the spiritual gifts do work hand-in-hand with this purpose, for the gift will establish them according to Romans 1:11. “For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established.”
Therefore, as I began to follow our Lord’s instruction He sent various people my way who were called into the ministry. I would sit with them in my study with a microphone and recorder, and I would begin speaking His words into their life. The amazing thing about commissioning is that His words not only describe what their ministry is about and what they will accomplish, but it also supernaturally opens up a portal from heaven. This portal allows the ministering spirits from heaven to ascend and descend upon them delivering their prayers to the throne and returning with God’s message and power to do whatever He so desires according to Hebrews 1:14 which poses this question, “Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister FOR those who will inherit salvation?”
What are you called, an Apostle or a Prophet?
Many people have some idea of what their ministry is about. They are drawn to ministries that inhabit a kindred spirit operating in the same type of ministry that they yearn to flow in, but they cannot seem to get started for lack of direction. However, when a person is called, commissioned and equipped with at least one spiritual gift they cannot fail. The security of being called, commissioned and equipped is like a three strand cord, very difficult to break. The Bible states in Ecclesiastes 4:12, “Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a three fold cord is not quickly broken.”
All are called but few are chosen
I now know the reason why these wandering souls feel left out. They have not been recognized in the body of Christ for their calling. They lack direction because they have not been commissioned and feel powerless because they have not perfected their spiritual gift. Being commissioned is like giving sight to the blind; once you have been commissioned you “know in your knower” where the Lord is taking you, assured your spiritual gift will always be there to back you up in all you proclaim in the mighty name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. “For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable” (Romans 11:29).
What being commissioned did for me!
I, Judith Oldridge, was commissioned by Prophet Kent Simpson on May 24, 2014
I asked the Lord, so what does this mean?And he replied with this: more will be accomplished in less time, with less effort. I have more for you to do, but it will be more Me and less you. John the Baptist said he must decrease, and I must increase.
John 3:30 states, “He must become greater; I must become less.” I did not see this verse about less until after God spoke to me about it. Isn’t that wonderful? That explains so much about Him–and what He wants to do.
So this means the Lord will carry more and I will trust Him to do so. He will do the work, and I will just obey when He tells me to do something, trusting that He is in charge of it all. I will remember what John 3:27 says, “A man can receive only what is given him from heaven.”
The scripture goes on to detail how John’s joy was made complete: he allowed Christ to become greater, and he became less. This is good news! Greater joy comes as Christ becomes greater (and does more of the work in my life and ministry), and I become less by obeying Him each day. That is how I can rest!
It is starting to make sense. I always thought it just meant that we have to humble ourselves, and that was the way Christ became greater. But this seems to indicate that Christ is the One who decides what He wants to do, and gives us instructions on what our part is (obedience). He has a plan that includes us, and He wants to do more in and through us. We can simply watch His plan unfold. I believe this is what the Commissioning is about. Jesus sees the timing of when He wants to lead us into more of Him and less of our own efforts. His Holy Spirit is willingly doing more to impact people, so we can relax in His continual Presence.
It really involves entering deeper into His Rest, but accomplishing more for His glory. He wants to do the work by His Holy Spirit. If we will obey as He directs then He gets the glory. It is His work, not mine! We seem to think we have to do it all ourselves–to get the message of His love out to the world–but that is just not true. John the Baptist was sent ahead of Christ, to let the people know He was coming. John was a friend of the bridegroom (Jesus), and he attended him by waiting and listening for him.
I want to wait and listen for His instruction, while enjoying His Presence more than ever before. Christ in me, the hope of glory. He must increase, I must decrease. More impact in the world, with less stress. Now that’s what I’m longing for!

Burl Hamilton, who is mentioned in this weeks article received another prophecy and was hired as Benny Hinn’s chauffeur. This video of Burl receiving his prophecy was recorded just 6 months after the Jewish doctor received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and was baptized in the Holy Spirit.

Absolutely love this story about the angel…..
That is so awesome! I’m believing for Angelic Encounters also. Blessings
I do believe God has a sense of humor. He saved me at Christmas time, 1978….I am an ex Jehovah’s Witness that didn’t even believe in Christmas….Yes I believe God has a real sense of humor.
Thanks for sharing
Your sis in Christ

Thank you so much
Good Morning Kent,
Does this tie in with the idea of corporate words for the body of Christ now? It seems like your Ministry is expanding-going to a whole new level, and the way to reach the masses is through the internet, etc., reaching so many more in the hours you have in a day.
Maybe the body of Christ is being prepared to hear the messages corporately now-as many more countries are able to access your Ministry. I guess I’d call it corporate, but also multiplication of your work in the Kingdom. You used to do one prophecy at a time; now the world is listening, and hungry, and needing to be fed the truth of the Word-our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
God bless your words this day. May none fall to the ground. The world is needing to hear the truth. Rest in His grace today.
I want to follow Him! I choose to take in as much of the Prophet’s Mantle as I can. I am hungry, and learning as much as I can. This is helping me in all that I do. It applies to every area of life, not just the spiritual. These words of counsel work wherever we are! Thank 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.
What do Prophetic Family Partner’s Receive?
- Prophetic Counseling
- Learning How to Know God’s Will

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
