For the past couple of years, I have noticed an increase in the number of people desiring to hear from God for themselves. It was for this same reason that in 1994 I went on television offering PMT’s first video correspondence program “School of the Prophets”. It wasn’t until January of 2003 that we offered our second video school of ministry, “The School of Prophetic Knowledge”. Many immediately enrolled and found the courses to be vital in launching their ministry.
As an interim offer to our graduates in 2005, we made available the training videos for those who might want to become an Internet Pastor under Prophetic Ministries Today. This method of ministry with the correct technology can be a great avenue for ministry and is still wide open for those who are Internet savvy. However, I believe it was a little bit ahead of its time, and many did not truly understand the scope and exposure one could have by offering their ministry online. This video course was short lived. With technology changing so quickly, the training became obsolete in just a couple of years.
Now after 9 years since our last school, it is time to update everyone with all that the Holy Spirit has taught us since that time. So over the next few months we will start putting together another video correspondence school and this is where you come into the process of making this video correspondence school one of our best. I need your questions regarding anything dealing with the prophetic move of God. You can email me at PMTkent@aol.com and I will reply A.S.A.P.
Below is a few sample quotes from email correspondence with questions and answers exchanged with one PMT’s Prophetic Partners. Now the pump has been primed, and the flow of questions are expected to keep coming in until we have completed this project. For those who send in their questions, I will place your email address on a special list and keep you up to date with the progress.
To stay abreast of technology and keep the cost down to a bare minimum, we will be offering this “New School of Prophetic Ministry” on CD, DVD and on PMT’s New Internet Video Channel that is presently under construction.
“I want to hear an audible voice/knowing like you do. “HOW” can I get this?
PMT Partner: I was just listening to an audio on your website wherein you were speaking about a hearing clinic that you use to give awhile back. That really got my attention. I have been searching all my life from books, articles, prayer, and speaking with others about how to hear the actual voice of God. There have been a few instances that I can count on one hand wherein I know that I have heard God. All of my research about hearing the voice of God has gotten me nowhere. I have read more books and ordered more tapes than you can imagine. They all say the same thing and they don’t tell me HOW to get it. I already know that I have to be knowledgeable of the written word of God, be obedient, etc. but something is still missing because I don’t hear God enough. Hearing once a year or less is not enough for me. I want to hear him and know how He speaks. Does he speak through music, billboards other people, numbers, symbols, etc.? But that is not His audible voice. I want to hear an audible voice/knowing like you do. “HOW” can I get this?
A better way to say this is that the impression of His voice is so strong it is like you are hearing His audible voice.
Kent’s Reply: Hopefully, I have not been misled to think that I am always hearing the voice of God audibly. There is so much to learn about hearing God. We use this statement-“hearing God’s voice”- so loosely. When I and most others say we are “hearing God’s voice”, I can see how easy it would be to think we are saying we are hearing audibly. A better way to say this is that the impression of His voice is so strong it is like you are hearing His audible voice. Don’t get me wrong; I have heard His audible voice, but it is a rare thing. God is omnipresent and speaks through all objects and all our natural senses. We will get more into this later, for there is a process that you must go through before you receive the full promise, and you will hear HIM daily. Trying to explain how you hear God is like trying to tell how falling in love makes you feel. You can explain all the obvious things about falling in love but how does it happen that you know this is the one you will spend the rest of your life with? How many ways does true love effect you physically and emotionally and how do you know this is love, you just know that you know in your “knower”.
PMT Partner: I have wanted this all my life. I would give anything to have it. I know that with my saying “I would give anything to have it” sets me up for a lot of heartache. I know that having that gift comes with a great price. I know this because of other prophet friends of ours (one who is now dead. He died at age 50). I see people who have this gift and still complain about their lives. What a fantastic gift to hear from GOD on a daily basis and to walk side by side with Him! What is more valuable than that? It is like having gold. Everything pales in comparison. I want to hear EVERY SECOND and not struggle to hear. I want it to flow and come naturally all day long. I know that this is a gift that you can’t earn. I can’t make God give it to me. He has to do it on His own. The bottom line is I don’t want to struggle with hearing. If I could hear then I could get the answers in how to deal with my problems. Whatever you can tell me about this would be greatly appreciated as well as praying that God would give me this gift. What does God say to you about this? Is it his will for me to hear in this manner?
Kent’s Reply: For the past 2 years, Ty and Sandy have been working on a book that deals with finding the answers to how the prophetic gift is birthed and how it works in a person’s life. I have personally worked with Ty and Sandy beginning when they were at the place you are at right now. PMT has over 323 ordained ministers who carry ministerial licenses and minister in some form of the prophetic gifts. One thing I can say about each one; not one operates the same as any other. They all have a variable of difference in their gift and hear God in a different way; no two are the same.
You will hear Him in the manner He has created you. Soon we will get into looking back and discovering some the ways He has revealed Himself to you in the past. There are reasons why. Your relationship with Him has so much to do with the manner in which He will speak to you. The best time to know that it is HIM speaking is when you are not praying or even thinking about what comes bursting into your thoughts.
I Want to Hear HIS Voice
Word of the Week
But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
For you can all prophesy one by one, that all may learn and all may be encouraged. And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.
The Best and Worst of Times
by Sandy Landry,
The book A Tale of Two Cities, begins with the line,” It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. ” It seems to be what the prophets are saying about our future. It may be the worst of times economically, but when God’s people are pushed into a position of faith, and God supplies their needs and responds to their faith, then suddenly, we are in “the best of times.”
We will have entered an arena where we will be out of comfort zones, into the precarious and frightening world of faith. It is faith which God values and which He looks for, because now we are weak and He can prove Himself strong. It is sometimes a place that we don’t want to experience, because it means we will be dependent and uncomfortable.
We will need to depend on each other and on God, and on our hearing His voice. But the potential for the Church to find strength and greatness, to emerge triumphant and victorious will be in the worst of times. David is only a shepherd boy with some rocks in his hand until he faces Goliath, and then he is a warrior headed to becoming a King.
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.
I want you to know that you through our Lord Jesus have always been a blessing to me. At times I go back to tapes that you gave me in the 1990s when I was in prison. And then even after the Lord released me 1996 you sent tapes that help me to deal with being outside again.
Five years being locked up changes you. The first time I was allowed to leave the half-way house, I could not wait to get back inside my room. But getting back to why I’m writing you is to thank you so very much for your ministry that our Lord has given to you. I have always been able to learn and grow so much through your teaching tapes and videos. I’m going to fight and keep spending a lot of time with our Lord. I just never have a happy day. Don’t mean to complain. As long as things go ok that is a good day but the last happy day I had is when I was bless to marry one of my best friends in August of last year. And that goes back to you helping me to get my Ministerial License.
I’m going to send you some pictures of the wedding. At times I look at all the things you went through and ask myself how did Kent go through all the things that have been put in his life. I remember a lot and the things that you shared with me when I came to Texas. I love you Brother Kent so very much.

Regarding Kent’s Article,
This is such an Awesome email “God’s Favorite Game”….when I saw the title I knew what the game was and thought right away that it was exactly what has been going on with me lately. It was like one of those A Ha (however you spell it) moments, then when I saw the email I had written it brought back to remembrance of when I prayed to God about my father and totally put it into God’s Hands. I remember my helpless feeling and inadequacy and knowing that ONLY GOD could help me.
I have been doing a lot of seeking God lately about many things for His answers and boy God seems to be good at hiding. It seems the more He hides that is when we finally do seek Him, like when we see He’s not coming out. This email really gives so many an explanation of what is going on when we feel bewildered and lost out in the wilderness. It sometimes feels that God is nowhere to be found, but He is just hiding and who knows for what reason, maybe so we will “Seek Him.” Just a shame that we have to come to the end of ourselves most of the time before we start to seek Him. Now I try to remember to stop and pray and be still about everything before I get carried away into confusion.
The part of where you say that helping find God for others is what prophets makes so much sense to me now.
God bless and loved this email,
