Therefore, His word must be prayed, preached and prophesied on earth as it is being proclaimed in heaven. If we are truly speaking and prophesying His Word on earth as in heaven, the devil does not stand a chance. And this is why the enemy knows he must do everything he can to shut the mouths of those who are prophesying on earth, for the things that are being revealed in heaven and then prophesied on earth will crush the enemy. This is why you who are His vessels being used to prophesy His Word are under such a horrendous attack. Satan is sending his vessels to torment and to steal, kill and try to destroy you so you can no longer be an instrument of God on earth. Yes, we are dime a dozen in the sense that there are millions of us and millions more coming right behind us. AMEN!
By the way, just in case you might have forgotten the word amen is defined as “so be it.” What better way to describe true prayer? When you are praying what is being spoken in heaven you are truly declaring His will on earth as in heaven.
Therefore, I pray the fire of the Lord be shut up into your bones with the power to deflect all the works of the enemy that you may prosper in wealth, health and a soundness of mind.
3 John 2
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that you may have it more abundantly”
Prophets and Prophetesses
Prophets and prophetesses, which is correct or what is the difference? The only difference is a prophetess is a female prophet and a prophet is a male prophet. I have noticed a lot of woman have indicated that the differentiation puts too much focus on gender. There is truth in this because you do not see any difference in the titles for any of the other accession gift ministries. An apostle is the same for male or female, as is the evangelist, pastor or teacher so why is the office of a prophet different. Why is there a need to flag the difference in gender just for the office of a prophet?
The only reason we use the prophetess title is because it’s consistent in the Holy Scriptures and it is the only title that carries over from the Old Testament to the New Testament. The only reason that I can think that a woman would be upset if they were referred to as a prophetess is if they think they are somehow beneath a prophet. If this is the case then there really should not be any argument because both the prophetess and the prophet are given the same in function, authority and responsibility. Instead of focusing on the titles given, we should be directing our attention to the purpose of those given these titles of prophet or prophetess.
Why Have Titles, Do We Really Need Them?
I know a lot of people are really hung up on titles, and it appears that there are two opposing camps. The first camp does not like titles and would rather folks just not use them at all. From this camp come a variety of reasons why they do not like to hear people give a title or introduce themselves with a title. Some get upset because it sounds like they are showing off or hiding behind their title as if to put others on notice that they are someone of importance. Others do not like it because it puts them in a box and limits their ability to flow in and out of other groups. The reasons are endless and I probably do not even know half of them, but the bottom line is titles are in the Holy Scriptures and if God thinks they are necessary then that is good enough for me.
On the other hand, we know there are a lot of people who call themselves whatever makes them sound important and acceptable. Little do they know it can really make them sound cheap if they cannot fulfill the calling of that title.
The other camp is composed of those who are the titling gurus, interested in organizing and categorizing everyone. For these people if you do not have a title they make one for you like “nobody”. We know that can sound a bit snobbish; however, we must understand that people who are called to be administrators and even leaders in their minds are constantly categorizing. They truly do not mean any harm and they are part of a necessary group that keeps order. They are the glue that holds the data together so the history makers can make solid decisions on issues that help the kingdom of God function. They are more analytical and look at giftings, abilities, talents and a sundry of other attributes that help them title the people within the organization. The free-spirited folks usually have a problem with these types of personalities. Those who are light at heart are very protective and wish to be among the people, for they are all about the people not the titles, numbers, offerings or anything that could isolate a person or make them feel inferior. We need to see the value of both types and we must respect one another’s gifts and callings.
God is building an army, preparing for a huge manifestation of the supernatural powers in action. It will take all of us working in unity to win this spiritual war. We are the light and salt of the earth and we will soon see that things like arguing over titles will shortly become a non-issue for discussion. When this time approaches, most Christians will be totally caught off guard and clueless as to what is going on and will know not what to do. The Holy Spirit is recruiting masses of selected people and training them in the spiritual weapons of warfare. We are battling against the dark powers, but we are of the light and getting brighter, training every day for spiritual warfare. We are fighting not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers of darkness in high places. We can defeat our enemy if we will join together as one body under one Head, Jesus Christ, and if we are led by one Spirit, the Holy Spirit. For anything with more than one head is unacceptable and is not of the Spirit our Father.
Discerning False Spirits
In May of 1995 I had the privilege of going to Hawaii and ministering for three weeks. During my stay, I was asked to be interviewed on two television programs. The last twenty minutes of the first program the station opened up the phone lines for viewers to call in for personal prophecy. Within a twenty minute span, the station had received 78 phone calls; the station manager was shocked over this great response.
The next day the manager had me back and wanted to give more time for people to call. With eleven telephones manned in the station, we answered 256 phone calls in forty-two minutes. It was obvious the people in Hawaii were hungry for spiritual direction.
Being new to Hawaii, I did not know that the islands were also a Mecca for the psychics especially on the island of Maui. It wasn’t long before I was confronted by three psychics after an evening church service. The male psychic started the conversation by saying I had caused quite a stir; then he asked if I would say no more against the psychics. I told him that I could not be silent about what they were doing to the people. He responded that he was a Jew. He said he knew that the Bible says to know men by their fruit and he believed what they were doing was for the good of the people.
I told this man that being a Jew he should also know about the curses laid upon those who seek mediums and psychics and that the fruit he bore was not from the same tree from which I came. He responded that he had a refrigerator he used every day, although he didn’t know how it works. I said, “You may not know how it works, but if you were a repair man you would know everything about it. If you are going to practice in the spirit realm, you better know what spirit you are dealing with.” He and the other two psychics turned and left the church and I never heard from them again.
Just because you may know of things to come, does not necessarily mean that you have heard from God. If what you heard truly is from God and you do not give Him the credit, you will be no better than a psychic. The scriptures tell us to test the spirits and know that they are of God.
“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world”
I John 4:1
In the early church Apostle Paul and Prophet Silas had an encounter with a Psychic. The way they handled the problem should be our example for today.
It was a day like any other in which Apostle Paul and Prophet Silas were going to pray. On their way, they were met by a fortune teller who was possessed by the spirit of divination. She followed Paul and Silas crying out, “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.” Now that was not a bad thing to say about Paul and Silas, but they knew by what spirit she was speaking.
This went on for many days, finally Paul, who was greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” The spirit was cast out of her and she could no longer profit her masters by fortune telling. The spirit of the psychic had been removed.
Paul and Silas were not the only ministers of God in the early church who had encounters with Psychics. We find that Apostles Peter and Barnabas were summoned by Bar-Jesus, a sorcerer and a Jew, to give a word from God to the Proconsul. As Paul and Barnabas traveled to the Proconsul, they were met by a man named Elymas, who was also a Psychic who practiced sorcery. Elymas tried to stop Paul and Barnabas from witnessing and converting the Proconsul over to Christianity.
“Then Paul rose up full of the Holy Spirit, looked intently at Elymas and said, ‘O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now, indeed, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time.’ And immediately a dark mist fell on him, and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand. Then the Proconsul believed, when he saw what had been done, being astonished at the teaching of the Lord”.
There is also an encounter which Peter had that is not recorded in the Bible. However, we do know there is a historical account of this event:
Peter was in Rome to refute the apparent miracles of a false messiah, Simon Magus. As a massive crowd awaited the outcome, Simon, who had won the initial skirmishes, was now pushed to the brink and boasted he would prove his divinity by flying “up unto God.” Leaping from a wooden tower, the Magus [magician], aided either by magic, spells or by demons, sailed across the sky, seemingly victorious. The crowd looked to Peter for his reaction.
The Apostle implored the Lord Jesus to have Simon “fall from the height and be disabled; and let him not die but…break his leg in three places.” The impostor plummeted to the ground. He was carried off, his leg broken in three places, at last humiliated. This tale, from the apocryphal Acts of Peter, is one of many Simon Magus stories (Ref- “After Jesus”, Readers Digest).
We still have the power today to call upon the name of Jesus when His glory is being tested by the false prophets, psychics of today. “Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever”

Comments and Testimonies
Then Jesus said to him,
“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.
Thanks for this message today. This is something that I have pondered about for many years. Unfortunately the church is much as you say but I have been praying for a restoration of these things in the church since God has not changed anything since He revealed it to Paul for the early church. Thanks again for reminding us that God is the same yesterday, today and forever, I got your audio word recently and it really spoke to my heart. A young woman prophesied the same thing that you spoke to me as I was entering to go to a meeting one night at church. It really made me take a step back and perk up my ears about the things you said to me. Just a little feedback and thanks for your ministry.
Yours in Christ,
Thank you for delivering the prophetic message from God
I just want to confirm – and may be encourage you – on/about its content; it is very precise and indeed very recognizable for me; describing my past and present.
My background is having been a somewhat controversial/unconventional pastor and evangelist in the Pentecostal movement, emphasizing to reach out to the “common man”, the unsaved ones- through radio, TV, newspapers, and my sermons have been attended by many, and the congregations has increased/grown. Though: There have been a lot of people working against me/my “methods”, and I have not been strong enough to stand for long at a time. May be “the traditionalists”/the “religious spirits” have been motivated, in fact, by enviousness; a kind of jealousy. These kind of “get rid of- reflexes/responses/reactions” has also been an active factor in other areas in my life, as I have been in an active position in the struggle against poverty and drug abuse, mostly as a writer in the national newspapers and as a lobbyist towards the parliament and government, having found open doors and received break-troughs. But has been stopped by people I worked with. They think I “take to big space;” am to dominant and charismatic.This has also been the case in my political struggle, where I indeed has altered some systems and politics – both on local level, and to some extent on national level.
But God has opened doors for the ones that I sensed that I was to lift up, to parliament, to TV programs and newspaper journalists. Doors that were considered to be impossible, was opened, and break- thoughts took place. Especially regarding an African family that I lifted up to all the nations (4 cd’s concert tours, TV, etc.)
You know The Lord well, and He speaks/reveals to you.
Regards and blessings

Good Morning Prophet Simpson,
I just want you to know that I received my prophecy along with my children’s. I have been receiving prophesies, however, this is with a difference. I cannot explain it, but that is how I feel. I listen to it every day. Is it possible to order for another personal to prophesy if I so desire? I want to know before I order for another one again for myself. I have been telling everyone I know about your ministry, including my colleges. Gee God working through you like this is incredible and amazing. There is no ministry like this on earth that I know of. OMG that is true Prophet. Think about it. Do you realize that? I hope that when I become a millionaire/billionaire, I will find you and support you. Yes indeed I will. I am in the process. It is only Jesus that will make it happen for me. This is a true promise sealed with the power of the cross. Thank you so much.
