“…the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,…”
In 1991 our ministry took a group of people in our 15 passenger van to Nacogdoches, Texas to minister in the towns Senior Citizens Hall. After praise and worship was over I brought the usual 45 minute message then the fun part began. We passed around the congregation a large basket that was full of blank audio cassette tapes for each person to take one. Those of us who came to minister formed a line across the stage with each one of us holding a tape recorder. As the people came up with their tape in hand they would stand before each one of the ministers handing over their tape to receive a word. Everyone who came received at least 4 or more prophesies. However, I noticed there were three men on the front row who obviously did not want to be there and had refused to take a tape. With their arms crossed they sneered at us as we ministered, obviously not in agreement with what we were doing.
The last person in the line was a little old woman who had waited until the end of the service to come up for a word. As I ministered to her the Holy Spirit said, “Ask her about James, James Kay and tell her he is with me.” So I asked the little Women, “Who is James?” She said gruffly, “He’s my husband!” Again I asked looking for confirmation, “Who is James Kay?” Staring at me like I should know she replied, “Well, he is my husband!” Now I had all the information I needed to know I was hearing God clearly; boldly I said, “God wants you to know James Kay is with Him!” The Women broke out in tears; obviously James was not a very strong Christian but now she knew James would be waiting for her in heaven. Even the three angry men sitting on the front row knew James Kay and also believed there was no way I could have known James Kay except by hearing God.
By the gift of the Holy Spirit through the Word of Knowledge I was given the words needed to bless the little old Women and make believers out of three rough looking oil field workers.
After the services were over a group of women served sandwiches, chips and drinks, when I sat down to eat the three men rushed over and sat down right across from me and wanted to know everything about the Holy Spirit. That night was my first Prophetic Evangelistic experience as recorded in First Corinthians 14:24,25 “But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you.”
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.
That Word Sums up our experience almost totally and I find the same attitude or should I say Control as that is what it is .There was a time that I almost blamed myself that I could not fit, but now realize that there are people out there even trying to teach prophecy schools without the gift or knowledge. What I do wonder is that with the current economic slide that God will lead us into a new type of church and Words spoken over Lyn and I would suggest this in that there will be a new type of meeting place.

“Hey Celeste… thanks so much for your kind words. Was awesome talking to you also… and at times, the greatest resistance I get is not from the devil, but rather from relicgious Christian leaders. It’s a uphill battle, but I’m ok… earlier this year prophet Kent Simpson prophesied to me that God would give me the footing to get on top of that mountain! Thank you always for your encouraging words… next time I visit SOH, I would like to bless you with a few photos of the Ark of the Covenant and Crucifixion Site scene of Jesus. Viva Jesús!!!”
