The Father Himself, who sent Me, has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form. But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe. 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.
You cannot study the Scriptures like you study any other book. You must let the Holy Spirit take you to where He wants to teach you. Jesus’ Spirit is alive, and He is still speaking to us today. He can speak from the Holy Scriptures; however, there are a few who are too busy trying to make the book say what they want it to say.
Throughout the ages, men have tried to change His written word by inserting their own interpretation. There are still ministers today who bypass portions of the Bible, taking editing privileges, as if they are the author of this Holy instrument, twisting and manipulating Scriptures to fit their own doctrine.
I have found that those who pray, seeking truth, are led by the Holy Spirit through the Scriptures. The Holy Spirit confirms His Word throughout the Bible. If you can systematically find the constant connection from Genesis to Revelation, you will discover the thread of truth that weaves all 66 masterpieces, collectively called the Holy Bible. The bottom line is–you cannot know the truth within the Bible without hearing and knowing the Holy Spirit. He is truth; and, He is the author of this living will and testament, distributing it to the heirs of His inheritance, through His Word and promises that are sealed in His blood.
He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
Those who choose to reject the Holy Spirit, or who cannot receive His baptism, miss out on so much of what Jesus promised us. I thought, for a number of years, I had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. I remember when I was baptized at the age of ten; my pastor said as he lowered me into the water, “I baptize you in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”
It wasn’t until I was an adult that I learned about the Holy Spirit. My dad asked if I wanted to go to a Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship to have dinner and listen to a businessman speak. At the time, I was a bank president, and thought to myself, “Why not? I might have the opportunity to meet some business people.” The meeting was held in a banquet room in a very expensive hotel. I met a few people, and then they called the meeting to order. They introduced the speaker. He began telling us about his life as a successful businessman who was living the life of the rich and famous, and then he started having problems in his business. His wife left him, and he turned to God and was introduced to the Holy Spirit. I thought, “That was strange thing to say. How are you introduced to the Holy Spirit?” Since my denomination did not ever teach anything about the subject, I didn’t even know there was such a thing as the Holy Spirit. The speaker kept on, and I was very interested in what he was saying; however, it was all foreign to me.
Then, the speaker closed with asking those in need of prayer to come forward, and he would pray for them. The line started growing, and, to my surprise, my dad was in the line. Frankly, I did even know he was a Christian, so this was a strange, but educational evening.
As I was listening to the speaker praying over various people, one businessman kneeled down next to my chair and began telling me all these things that the Holy Spirit had told him to write down about me. Then, he started reading what he had written. As he walked away, I thought to myself, “This fellow is way out there,” and found it to be rather humorous.
Turning back toward the prayer line, I noticed my dad was lying flat on the floor. Seeing this shocked me, and I thought to myself, “My dad would never lay down in one of his fine suits.” But, there he was. I wondered, “Why is no one helping him? Can’t they see something is wrong?” So I jumped up and made my way to see if Dad was all right. Then someone grabbed me by the arm and pulled me into the prayer line. I voiced my concern for Dad, and he assured me my dad was just fine, saying, “He was slayed in the Spirit.” Now, that just did it for me, this place was off the chart, and these people, “Who are these people?”
My time finally came, and I was standing right before the speaker, and the first thing he asked me was, “Are you baptized in the Holy Spirit?” Well, I knew he must be referring to what my pastor had said over me as he baptized me at the age of ten, so I said, “I have been baptized in the Holy Spirit.”
One of my dad’s friends was standing next to me, and he was shaking his head side to side, as if to say with no uncertain body language, NO he is not! I started to explain to the speaker, and he said, “Shut up,” as he put his hand on my shoulder. Now, when he said that, I knew within myself that had to be God speaking through him. Don’t make me explain it because I can’t. Let’s just say that is what I knew in my “knower.”
After the man prayed for me, I had a hunger for more of God. And, I was going to find out how to get baptized in the Holy Spirit, if it was the last thing I did. (…to be continued)

Comments and Testimonies
“Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe.”
Prophecy is the testimony that Jesus is not dead but Alive and Speaking to you and I.
Thank-you Pastor Kent for taking the time to hear from our Daddy God and speak His words to me …I really do appreciate it and pray you are able to see that.
Yes! I’ve received a lot of words regarding my husband …not in as much detail as you had spoke though.
When I receive a word from you …listening once or twice doesn’t quite cut it….I find I have to listen several times to hear (heart hear if there is such a term) God for myself to understand fully what is being said.
LOL …when I first heard this word I said to myself, “Oh my Gosh! I don’t want a weak man for a husband” …well no sooner did I hear those words, “Child, DO YOU NOT THINK I KNOW YOU BETTER THAN YOU KNOW YOURSELF?….I know the kind of man you need….all you have to do is TRUST me”.
February/March I think is the time.
Anyway …on another note, the last newsletter you sent was pretty cool …thanks for taking the time to share that …I appreciate it.
Blessings and all God’s best for you and your family,
Kent Simpson’s Facebook Post
If I were to seek honor from man then I would be able to fit in with all of them; however, because truth in Him means more to me than the approval of man I find myself on the outside looking in.
I am glad you don’t fit in with fake people and are on the outside looking in on them. I am thankful that you have chosen God’s will over the approval of men and are able to minister to so many people to help seek God for them in their times of need and desperation. Thank you for all you do and have done to encourage me and my family.
