A Prayerful Commitment to Kent Simpson and PMT
It was not long after I sent out my first mail order prophecy that I found myself being carried by God’s grace, especially when I thought I would be rebuked by a pastor for sending out prophesies to his parishioners. Within just a few short months, I had saved money and had one of my friends, who later became one of my brothers-in-law, work up an ad to look just like what God had showed me. That ad is the picture in the opening of this week’s story.
Taking a deep breath, I sent the ad to Charisma Magazine then immediately went to work putting back enough money to pay for the next month’s ad. The wait for publication seemed to take forever. When I finally saw the ad in print, I felt I had really accomplished something great. That first month, not many people wrote in, but I did not lose sight of what I was doing, being obedient to God. The results were not my problem, nor did the measure of success dictate whether I continued running the ad. After a couple of months, we began to see the demand increase and it was becoming more difficult to balance doing the prophesies and continue working at my job; I knew then it was time to make a big decision. I wanted to give up my small business, but Andrea and I were to be married soon and I could not see myself quitting as the ministry generated a huge monthly expense with no income to offset the cost. A few months had gone by and Andrea and I were finally married and moved into our new home. I continued to keep the pace, building a new and controversial ministry as well as working a full time job.
Then one day after coming home early from work, God began to deal with me about giving up my business and concentrating full time on the ministry. For the rest of the day, God and I had a back and forth discussion. I would remind Him that I just got married and my wife will think I am a bum if I close down my small business. He came back with the story of Elisha and how he broke down his plow, made a fire, and sacrificed his oxen as a symbol of his commitment to follow after the God of Elijah. Well, I knew what I had to do but did not know how my wife was going to take it. In a short time, she came home and she had a very strange look on her face. I was as nervous as cat on a tin roof, fearing she would break down when I told her what I had agreed to do.
Andrea came in from working that day and revealed that God had spoken to her heart. I patiently waited to hear what she had to share with me. She began with something like, “I’ve told you I didn’t want you to become a minister after seeing all my Dad had gone through as a pastor, but God has changed my thinking, and you need to quit your job.” I was in shock, fumbling around trying to find my words. She stood stunned as I told her about the experience I had encountered with our Heavenly Father. We both celebrated and where ecstatic that we were about to take on a huge financial loss.
As Andrea would leave each day to work at her business, cleaning houses, I would go to the post office to pick up requests for prophesies, return home and began seeking God for His Word. One day I received a phone call that shook me to the core and at the same time gave me relief.
A Charisma Magazine executive called me and informed me that they were going to have to pull my ad. Baffled, I ask him why. He began to tell me that pastors from all over were calling and writing their office threatening to pull their subscriptions and tell their followers to do the same if they didn’t pull my ad. When I asked what the problem was, he revealed that company had no issue with the ad, but that a few pastors believed I was using my gift for financial gain. I resisted the urge to lose my temper over the phone reminding him that we only ask for a love offering, and thus far we had not received enough “love” to pay their monthly charge of $386.00. He said he was sorry, and I let it go. Relieved, knowing I would not have to come up with the funds for the next month, I found myself telling our Father that I had done all I could and that now the problem was his.
To my surprise the ad was in the next month’s issue. I just thought maybe someone made a mistake. However, when the next issue still had the ad I was totally perplexed. Then in a few days I received another phone call and it was the Manager for Carman, a Christian artist, and he said, “You will never know why your ad is still running unless someone tells you.” Then he proceeded to tell me that the editorial and sales staff for Strang Communications, which owned Charisma and many other publications, wrote in anonymously for a prophecy tape from you. He continued to tell me that he was there the day they all sat down at the huge boardroom table with their tapes in hand. As they passed around the tape player, they each played their prophecy and the others judged the Word. He reported that no one at the table had a dry eye; they cried and made a prayerful commitment they would NOT pull the ad as long as they owned the magazine. After 5 more years, I finally asked Charisma to pull the ad, because there were too many requests to keep up with each month.
Before I sent out the first prophesy tape our Heavenly Father had made a promise to me. The promise was… (To be continued in next Saturday’s e-Newsletter)
Don’t Be Alarmed When Trials Come
Why shouldn’t we be alarmed when trials come upon us? Why are we told not to flinch or be surprised when they come? Here we are, floating down the stream “merrily, merrily, merrily,” and then suddenly “whammo,” we hit a tree stump or an alligator, and we feel we are about to capsize, and we’re going down.
It can be terrifying, and yet the more certain we are that we are loved by our Father in Heaven and He is for us, the more we can rest knowing it can be an adventure and a positive experience. Our lives should be exciting, like starring in Raiders of the Lost Ark. We know our hero is in trouble a few times, but we also know he is going to come out on the other side, successfully.
Trials are exercises in faith, a time for stretching and strengthening the muscles of faith and courage, and a little test for us to see where we are on the journey to trusting God and believing that He is good and His intentions toward us are always good. He doesn’t send the alligators, but he is more powerful than Tarzan in dealing with them, if we let Him.
Comments and Testimonies
For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. ~ Rev. 19:10b
Prophecy is the testimony that Jesus is not dead but Alive and Speaking to you and I.
Debbie & Kent,
It is amazing what God will do to get you to sit down and listen to him for just a minute.
Let me explain. I thought I had a doctor’s appointment in Dallas this morning and wanted to listen to my favorite music CD on the drive downtown. Once on the road, I realized my music was not in the car… but I did have Kent’s CD on Spiritual Impartation. That was even better.
I listened to Kent all the way. When I got down to Baylor, my appointment had to be rescheduled so I had to drive all the way back home. Wasted drive? Not in the least. Kent’s words provided so much more confirmation to add to the prophetic word he shared with me this month. I think God had made a way to slow me down to listen to him.
Kent, your willingness to speak God’s word is saving so many people’s lives. I’m ready to fight “the good fight” once again after being so encouraged.
Report – 4:45pm
I didn’t realize until the next day that Kent was an answer to prayer for me. With many issues weighing me down, I had asked the Lord to allow me to speak to a “Man of God”. Wow, did he answer my prayer. I really thought that when I asked for this in prayer and later had an interview with the folks at Benny Hinn, I would run into Mr. Hinn if I took a job and he would have a word for me. Not so. I was surprised. God answered my prayer in a way I would never have expected.
I have had more energy this week and been far more focused than I’ve been in 2 years. I feel ready to stand again.
Thank you for giving me a call yesterday to warn me about the weather. I think I actually saw some of the rotation in the clouds out my front window. Honestly I was never so scared.
I have been listening to Kent’s words almost every day. I do believe he heard from the Lord on the issues that have weighted me down for so long. He truly has a gift. I listened to several other messages he gave individuals on the Vimeo site and they are all so different. That’s how I know he is touching deep into our hearts.

I bet you are a real fun guy to hang out with. Just want you to know how thankful I am to have your friendship even if it long distance. I truly believe you are an answer to prayer. I have long needed some good counseling and someone I can trust for good advice.

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 a long term relationships with the people who have a real desire to learn more about what God is doing today.
From 1989 to 1995 I ministered to over 250,000 people via prophecy tapes. I receive hundreds of prophecy requests each month and I will continue to send out personal prophecy tapes and CD’s and Audio Emails to those who are seeking God.
In addition to the prophetic gift God has entrusted to me, the Lord has also directed me to become a Prophetic Pastor to those who will receive me. In this new capacity I can sow 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.
He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. Matthew 10:41
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

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 who will have a direct line to my private phone. My private phone number allows Family Partners to reach me during times of trouble or when they are having difficulty finding God’s will or when making tough decisions. When you call me, I will seek God’s direction for you and help determine how God wants to meet your immediate needs.
