Because we are fellow laborers with Christ and the Bible tells us in 1Th. 5:12 “And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you”, I feel it is important to know a little of my background so I will share my testimony.
In November 1978 I had just received my Commission after 7 years as an enlisted person in the United States Navy. Things were looking up as I had achieved my goal but it necessitated me moving from the shining star of navy medicine, Bethesda Naval Hospital. This was where I worked on cases involving members of congress as well as the White House.
The following is my testimony that parts of were shared worldwide in the 1980’s but because of all that is happening today and the Bible is clear as fellow laborers for King Yeshua we read in 1Th. 5:12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; I will share this testimony.
I got orders to report to Naval Hospital Portsmouth which I regarded after coming from Bethesda as a major downgrade yet it was where my new position was to be. Little did I realize what was to soon happen.
In January 1979 I was studying for a professional medical exam and I happened to have the TV on and what I was watching was the 700 Club. I remember watching the program and thinking to myself that the faces on the girls I was seeing especially their eyes was nothing like I was seeing when I was watching any of the other shows or even the girls I was going out with. There was a sparkle or shine in their eyes so I noticed something different and I said to myself I am going to call into the 700 Club as maybe God was the difference.
This went on for a couple of days, I would go to the phone and pick it up and then decide against it, little did I know that it was not me telling me not to dial. This went on for a couple more days and finally on the third day I could not wait to get home from work so I could call in. I remember cooking dinner and cleaning up and then studying for my exam waiting for 9 PM to arrive so I could call in (not knowing that it was a 24/7 number).
As soon as 9 PM arrived I called in and a girl answered the phone and I said I would like to join Pat and Ben’s Challenge as they were having their annual telethon. The girl thanked me and then I said “ I would also like to accept the Lord” and she said I’m sorry I didn’t ask you that and she prayed with me and I asked for forgiveness and for Him to wash me in His blood and I received the Lord Jesus into my heart.
The counselor then said “what is next is the baptism of the Holy Spirit” and I said what is that and she said “It is the power that Jesus gave his mother and his disciples and he wants all his children to have” so since this sounded great, I asked her when could I have that and she said right now and she shared a Scripture with me and prayed with me.
I also said my mother has cancer and could we pray for her that she would be healed and the counselor said absolutely and we prayed and I thanked her.
The counselor then said I needed to read the Bible and I said well I have one but I do not understand it and she said there is a new version out called the NIV. She then told me I also needed to go to church and get water baptized, and she told me about one in Virginia Beach, Virginia called Rock Church and that sounded interesting to me so I thanked her and hung up the phone.
Within minutes I was still watching the show and Pat Robertson was quoting out of Isaiah Chapter 53 or 54 and so I picked up my old Bible that I had gotten in Sunday School as a young kid and it flipped to exactly the page that Pat was speaking about. I then saw the Bible had more than 1000 pages and I said to myself wow the odds here are at least 1000:1 of opening to that and I never had any “luck” like that. The closest to winning anything was when in college I could have participated in the war draft lottery that we were having on campus and I would have won as my birthday was #6 and I was certain to be going to Viet Nam.
Next Pat quoted out of Acts Chapter 2 and I opened my Bible and this time it was on Acts 2. Now the odds were 1000×1000;1 and I was really amazed. I remember setting the Bible down as I was vibrating like a huge powerful full body massager was on me and at the same time I felt so good.
I went the next day to a Christian book store and I bought a NIV Bible and got home and started to read it but I was not able to read it easily and a matter of fact I said to myself I need to get back to the other Bible that I had as a kid as that made more sense. So I used that for a few days and realized that it was not in good shape so i went to the bookstore again and this time bought a leather covered Thompson Chain King James Bible and I knew this was what I would use from then on.
A couple of days later called and asked the counselor a question. I said is it selfish of me to ask God to help me on the test as I was figuring if God was helping me it would be unfair for the others taking the exam and that was would it be selfish for God to help me on my exam and she said no the Bible says to study to show yourself approved unto God and she said she would pray for me then and on the day of my exam.
I had started going to Rock Church but it was not just for a Sunday morning service but it was for all three of them as well as Wednesday night. Many times the pastor would quote a verse and I would flip my now new Bible open and it would again be on that same verse and this time the Bible had far more than 1000 pages. This happened repeatedly over the coming months and it was as if God was saying you are a scientist that works with numbers, I am going to show you my numbers.
At every service there would be an altar call where they said they would pray with you and you would be saved and then they would take you upstairs and water baptize you. For about a week I was thinking to myself I am already saved so when could I get baptized? I went up to the altar one evening and I said I was saved but I wanted to get baptized and so they shared some Scripture verses with me and I was baptized and it was like a heat was on me. I remember leaving the church in the middle of winter not even fully dried off and yet I did not even notice that it was cold outside.
As I said in the beginning I was studying for a medical exam and for some reason I was picking up a hematology textbook and started reading out loud which to me was strange because I never read out loud as it was too slow. I had taken the Evelyn Wood Speed Reading course in college and I was reading at times more than 3000 words per minute with a 90+% comprehension so certainly reading out loud would be a gross misuse of my time. Nevertheless that is what I did but I noticed that what I was saying when I was reading was not the same. There was a different language that was coming out of my mouth. I picked up another text and the same thing was happening. I then picked up a newspaper and read it out loud and all the words were in English as I was reading. I then picked up another hematology text and once again the words were in this language.
It then dawned on me I really had received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit that we prayed for on January 31st as I was speaking in tongues which is the evidence/proof of this experience. From then on this is how I studied, I would pick up a text or reference book and read out loud until my words turned to English and then I would pick up another text and read until my words turned to English. I had more than 20 books I was using to study and this is how I studied and I knew that God was helping me study.
I promised the Lord that if I passed the exam I would write my testimony for Pat to use on CBN and when I finally got my exam scores back not only did I pass but I had one of the highest if not the highest score in the nation. As if that was not enough proof, the section of the exam that I did the best with was that which I knew the least. The Bible says: 1Cor. 1:27 “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 1Cor. 1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:1Cor. 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence”.
I then wrote my testimony and sent it in and in a few weeks I got a call from CBN saying that Pat wanted to film my testimony and the testimony coordinator an RN said they would call me back.
Before this however on Valentine’s Day 1979 I was in church and an evangelist Sister Celeste from NYC had just come in and and she was sharing her testimony about how she was a call girl in NYC and then a Madam and then they arrested her. It was the largest vice raid in the history of the world as the D.A. was running for governor of New York so they made her an example. She had a 37 count indictment against her as her girls sold her out for a “bag of dope” and she was sent to jail awaiting trial but she tried to commit suicide and while she was dying she had a vision of Jesus and He said “Celeste I died for you, I died for you, I died for the least, the last, and the lost”
After Sister Celeste finished her testimony sermon she had an altar call for prayer requests and so many people went forward and she was spending a good deal of time praying for each one of them individually and when she came to me she asked what I wanted and I said for my parents to be saved and she quickly said Acts 16:31 and she moved on to the next person.
When I got home I looked it up Acts 16:31 “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” and I started praying that several times a day.
When the time for the trial came up the judge the judge called her name and she got up and started walking and the judge that knew the previous case said put this lady in contempt for impersonation. She said judge this is me. The judge then asked the D.A. if he recognized her and he said there is a slight resemblance but no not that I can tell. He then asked the arresting police woman and she could not tell it was her. Celeste said to the judge why don’t you take my fingerprints fingerprints don’t lie. The judge said to the DA “why didn’t you think about that dumbo?” The judge then called for witnesses as her girls had sold her out for a bag of drugs but some died, some fled the country that there were none. Jesus spoke to Celeste during this time and said “woman where are those thine accusers” and she said Lord there are none. Interesting note here using modern versions of the Bible like the 1984 NIV this would be totally missing and yet it clearly is in John 8:10 in the KJV with almost the exact words that Jesus spoke to her John 8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
I was hearing prophetic words from the first day I was in the church and I knew it was God speaking. I started writing long multi page letters to my parents transcribing some of the prophecies from church and signing with the Lord’s Love or Blessing.
This went on for some months and then in May 79 my parents planned a trip to Williamsburg and to visit me because I had changed so much they thought I might be in a cult. We had a good weekend and then on Sunday morning I awoke them at 6AM as we had about a 30 minute drive to the church and I wanted to sit in the seat I usually sat in, 3rd row center. During the 8 AM service Pastor David Minor was preaching a word entitled “God is In this Place” and when he finished my pastor John Gimenez took the microphone and said “While our brother was preaching, God was telling me that there is someone here with Cancer and a fear I really feel that you have a recent diagnosis but God is here to heal you,, come “
Mom said to me he must be talking about me and so Mom went forward and the Brother John called for all the elders and the visiting ministry as it was during a spring convention and they prayed rebuking the cancer in Jesus Name and when mom got back to the pew she said to me that while they were praying she had this “incredible warmth” go through her body. I knew what it was and i was just praising God.
I have included at the end of this testimony the powerful prayer that Pastor John Gimenez prayed for my mother after he received a word of knowledge during the sermon by David Minor.
At the 10:30 AM service the Anne Gimenez was preaching a sermon entitled “Unfeathering the Nest” and after it concluded there was a prophetic word where God was clearly speaking about unfeathering the nest and then she said “there may be someone here that does not know Jesus and come”. Both my Mom and Dad went to the altar and received Jesus Christ as Lord and immediately after that they were taken upstairs to the baptismal and they were water baptized According to Acts 2:38-9 Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
As my parents were coming out of the baptismal tank they were speaking in other tongues which again is the evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
While I was at Bethesda the chief oncologist at Navy was personal friends with the chief oncologist at NIH and knowing the results of my mother’s diagnostic biopsy they told me that the type of cancer my mother had the 5 year survival with NO lymph node involvement was less than 5% and mom had ALL her lymph nodes involved which meant the case was hopeless.
After my parents had been home a few weeks I had not heard anything from CBN so I decided to call and ask if they still wanted to do the testimony and the nurse said yes we do and I said I have something to add and she said what is that? I said “My mother was healed of cancer”. She said that was great and she was going to be asking me how my mother was .
Because CBN would not televise anything not documented they sent to my mother a letter that her oncologist had to sign and her return to CBN before they would proceed. When mom got the letter she said to me “Ken my doctor is not going to be signing it because he is a Jew” and I said “if it is God and I believe it is he will” and the oncologist signed it. The Carcinogenic Embryonic Antigen (CEA) which detects the presence of cancer past or present was negative. Interestingly enough when mom passed away in September 2014 her CEA was still negative.! Truly He is Jehovah Rapha.
In a few weeks CBN came and filmed my testimony in Virginia and then went to New Jersey and filmed my parents and when they got back to Virginia Beach to splice and edit the tapes they found that very very little had to be done, what I said in Virginia matched almost perfectly with what parents said in New Jersey.
The testimony was then aired during the upcoming telethon and it was shown all over the world and during its course this was done about 10 or 11 times. Since my church was quite prominent in 1979/1980 we had visitors from all over the country and the world and so many times people visiting from California or Hawaii or other places would come up to me and ask how my mom was doing and I would say “great, praise the Lord”.
This was the beginning of exciting times for me while at Portsmouth Naval Hospital. End Part 1
This is a testimony that I recently shared with a sister who used to be in the Illuminati and had gotten so far upthe organization that she actually met Lucifer. She was saved years later by reading a book by Johanna Mickelson..”The Beautiful Side of Evil” and praying to accept the Lord Jesus using a prayer in the book…….
In 1979 while a U.S. Naval Officer who just met the Lord, I used to go down by the waterfront on my lunch hour and just read or pray. This one beautiful day I went outside and as I was praising God He said “take off your shoes you’re on Holy Ground“. Being in my summer white uniform I did not want to do that as I would be out of uniform and then God said it again”take off your shoes you’re on Holy Ground” this time after hearing it I started to remove my shoe and as soon as I did God said “ now return to thy people tell them that I love them , that I died for them“
I then started walking across base and as I was walking Satan was saying you fool nobody’s going to be up there or they’re going to be at lunch but I walked across the base into the building, walked up to the second deck and got in the room and every single student was sitting behind their desk in the room that was totally quiet.
I then stood at the lectern and said..”I did not know I was going to be saying this but Jesus Christ loves you and he died for you”. I then went down to my office.
In a few minutes the Command Master Chief was in my office and he said “Sir did you say these things?” I replied yes master chief and he actually went to my church and he said “You have to render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and God the things that are God’s. I said “Yes Master Chief and he left my office but I was pretty sure what God said to me.
This was on a Wednesday and at my church I had prayer every Wednesday from 2200-2300 and I did not have a liberty to leave at 2300, the same with 2400, and this went on for a while and ,at 0130 there was a doorbell ringing so I went down to get the door and there was this little man standing there and he said ” I don’t know if brother John ever mentioned me to you but I’m brother St John I’m the one who led him to the Lord”. We came up into the prayer room then he said that we were driving in NYC this afternoon and just said let’s go down to Virginia and see brother John as we have not seen him in for many years so here it is they are arriving at 0130 in Virginia Beach.
Brother St John then started sharing a testimony about how he was a janitor in the church in the Bronx and he had injured himself such that his arm was probably broken. He still had to finish his church chores and as he was sweeping..Crack Crack Crack..God totally reset his arm !
We then got in a circle and started praying and the word of the Lord came through him and He said “I am speaking to those who I called here tonight, I want you to tell them tell them that I love them and that I died for them, if you fail to do this your blood will be required of you“. When I heard that I said Lord that is what you told me this afternoon by the waterfront. Within minutes upon my way driving home I was knowing why I was waiting more than 3 hours after my prayer time was scheduled to end and I had to get up in a couple of hours and report for duty.
I found out a few days later that in the morning brother St John walked across the street to the pastor’s house and found that Brother John was in California for a Washington for Jesus meeting so they got in their car and drove back to New York City.
God gave me a strange thing to do, He told me to take off my shoes like he did with Moses and then He had an officer who was not a chaplain tell his enlisted students what I did which was against Naval Regulations.
In other words big decisions need big confirmation and for me God sent someone who drove from NYC to Va. Beach with the thought of visiting my pastor and the reason he came was to confirm to me what He said to me that morning. Praise King Yeshua !
The story wasn’t over then but before they graduated three students had come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. One of these students came to me later and said “Sir I was really angry when you said what you said that day but now I know why you had to”.
As I mentioned initially on the day that I got saved I opened to two different verses with 2 flips of the Bible. Again this was happening many many times in church. The pastors would quote a scripture and I would open right to it. Also as I said I knew when the prophetic words were coming in my church that it was God speaking and after I finished the first 6 sessions of the First Principles course that anyone who wanted to do a ministry needed, I chose prophecy transcription. I was fortunate because I was able to listen to every sermon again and also the weekday Bible study. No matter what prophecy was given the pastors wanted a copy of it so they could check it off when it came to pass and refer to it for various reasons. Even the requirement to do the first 6 sessions of First Principles was a result of a prophetic word that came and it was “You will know those that I send because they will submit themselves to the teachings of the First Principles”.
I was transcribing these prophetic words for some months now and we were going to be having a fall convention with a prophet that was instrumental in God’s restoration of the ministry of the laying on of hands of the presbytery (Acts 13:2 “As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. Acts 13:3 And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away”). in 1948 and so I applied for my annual leave as the students were on their clinical rotation.
My leave was granted but now I had a bit of a situation so I went to my pastor after church and said. ” I have taken leave because Sister Kitely is coming but CBN is starting their counseling class the same night which one should I go to?” He said to me “That’s your present ministry you go to that” So on that evening, I went out to CBN to start my training and when I got home I wanted to read my Bible. I opened it I thought in the NT area and it opened to Jer 1. I closed it and again I opened it and it was still Jer 1. This happened again and I was rather amazed as this was a new Bible and the pages of Isaiah 66 physically stuck to Jeremiah 2/3. Now of course the odds of this happening even without the pages stuck together as they were was now more than 1 billion to 1. I am sure many know how on a new Bible the pages stick together.
Well over the next 3.5 years I had opened to that same scripture not just with my study Bible but others that I had as well of those of other brothers and sisters in church literally hundreds of times when I least expected it. I remember a sister that sat next to me every Sunday who had started with CBN when they were so small that a mouse chewed a cable and shut down the station said to me “Ken many times God will speak to you when you open a scripture one time.. He is not speaking to you He is shouting at you”
This experience of opening to Jeremiah 1 in many different Bibles some were owned by brothers and sisters and I was using their Bible that was being used to save their seat for the next service, continued and in 1982 we were giving our student practice tests to prepare them for their national registry and these were multiple choice questions which was not what I used as I considered them multiple guess and I gave all essay tests.
After the students turned in their test papers I said to myself it sure does not take any brains to grade this so I am going to listen to the tape of that service with Sister Kitely from 1979 that I did not attend as CBN counseling class had started for I only listened to the praise and worship side 1 all this time. I put the cassette into the player on side two and Pastor John Gimenez introduced Sister Violet Kitely and she stepped up to the microphone and said “My sermon tonight is on be childlike not childish..Open your bibles to Jeremiah 1:5” When I heard that I almost fell out of my seat and then I realized what God was saying to me ever since that day in Oct 1979 Jer. 1:5 “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
Even before 1981 I had a dream and in the dream I was saying to God that I wanted to speak the word of the Lord as a prophet and He said “You will lay hands on the sick and they will recover and you will lay hand on them and they will receive the Holy Ghost” I again said I want to speak the word of the Lord as a prophet and He said ” You will lay hands on the sick and they will recover, you will lay hands on them and they will receive the Holy Ghost.” Then the dream ended.
Well since I was counseling on the phones and the altar at church I was already seeing these things come to pass but it brings to remembrance an experience I had as young counselor. This particular Friday evening I was on the phone and a woman on the other line said to me can you pray for my husband as he has emphysema. I said yes but do you know Jesus and she said yes I am saved. I then said “this is your night for a double miracle” I then said would you like to receive the power that Jesus gave his mother and his disciples and she said yes so I shared scriptures with her from Genesis to Jude and then Luke 11:9-13 “Luke 11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. Luke 11:10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Luke 11:11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Luke 11:12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? Luke 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?”.
I then prayed in agreement with her and said ok we asked according to the Word so just open your mouth and start praising God but not in English.. She did and was speaking with tongues of angels slowly.. I then praised God and I said “is your husband there?” She said yes and he got on the phone. I said “do you know Jesus?” and he said “yes I have been backsliding for years and years but never again”. I said “would you like to receive what your wife just did and he said oh yes”. I prayed with him and he started speaking fluently in the tongues of angels. I then said to him “Take a deep breath right now a deep breath all the way down to your diaphragm” and he did and then started screaming ” I can breath I can breathe I have been on oxygen for 16 years and I can breathe”.
This was one of my first experiences on the phones like that but indeed there was a double miracle.. both he and his wife had received the baptism of the Holy Ghost and he was cured of a non curable disease COPD. When I got to church I was asking one of the Bible school teachers if I was opening my big mouth and God covered for me and she said no many times when you are on the phone God will give you a word of knowledge and that is what happened.
I was trying to get people to come to my church and the family practitioner that worked next to me in the office really liked music and we had an incredible orchestra and choir and I used that as “bait” to get him to come and he really liked it and was there most every Sunday but he did not have a Bible so I got one and placed it on his desk. I was telling him how I had opened to scriptures many many times but really did not know if he believed me other than our integrity as naval officers. One Wednesday I was in the prayer room at my time and God said “Rev 3:20 for Dr. H.”
Thursday morning I got to the office and I saw Dr. H. and I said. “God has a word for you” and he said what is it and I said Rev 3:20. He handed me his Bible and said “You find it I don’t know where it is” so I opened the Bible and yes… right to Rev 3:20 and the eyes of Dr. H. got wide as he realized what I was telling him before..
It was interesting as when my testimony went live the entire officer staff of the command were in my office watching it including Dr. H.
After my testimony aired and I was counseling on the weekends for more than a year I got a call in my office from the secretary of Ben Kinchlow and she said Ben would like to do a follow up on your testimony. I said I do not think I can come as I am in the middle of my classes but I will see. I got off the phone and went to see Dr. H. and I told him and he said “go go go” and I said I have class and he said “I will take your class can’t you give them a test or something?” I said yes they are due and so I called back Ben’s secretary and said I could come.
The day came and the whole time driving from the naval hospital to CBN I am praying like this “Lord if man has any plans you upset them and have your own way” Repeating this on my entire drive. When I got to CBN in the green room I was told that things were delayed as one of the guests Tramaine Hawkins was late coming from the Capitol Center in DC. Finally they brought me out and the program started and Ben was sitting next to me and he said Mr Ken since you have been counseling on the phone how has it been? I then started relaying the story of the man with emphysema that God healed and other things and I am talking so very very fast and then they signaled for the switch and Dave Boyer started to sing..
I got back to my office and I called Ben’s secretary and I said God showed me it was not the quantity but the quality He was interested in. She said “You know Ken I was quite upset when they cut your time from 10 minutes to 5 minutes and then a minute and a half but in that minute and a half you answered six of the eight questions Ben was going to ask you”.
While at this command I was carpooling with a othopedic surgeon who was a Jew and it was obvious he did not appreciate me witnessing on my lunch hour and he wanted me to go to the officers club at lunch instead and it was during the Christmas holiday and my name was not on the watch bill so I stayed home and studied for Bible school. Three days later I get a phone call and it is this Dr. who picked me up at my house almost daily and he asked how I was and I said fine and he said ” Are you planning on coming in” and I said yes I will be in tomorrow and he said by the way there is a report chit out on you as you have been UA for 72 hours. I got off the phone with him and said Lord I have to speak with Bishop Winley tonight for Bishop Winley was a powerful prophet pastor from Harlem NY that in just one instance was having a street meeting in Harlem in the 1960’s and the Black Panthers came against them and they had guns, machine guns, machetes, knives, etc. and a deacon went and told Bishop we have to go they are going to kill us. Bishop Winley said “No we are not going anywhere but stand still and see the salvation of the Lord” Then without any microphone Bishop Winley went out and started preaching to them and God supernaturally had his voice bouncing off the walls of the tenements in the neighborhood around 125th and St Nicholas in Harlem. The next thing that happened were these Black Panthers were running to the front area and throwing down their weapons and kneeling at the altar. Bishop Winley then said to his deacons “Now minister to their souls”.
I went to church and after the service I went up to him and said Bishop can I speak with you and he motioned me to the pastors chair and he sat down next to me. I started talking to him and he said “Brother from what you are telling me God is going to be using you mightily” and meanwhile there are executives from CBN with their arms folded like will you get done with this pipsqueak as we want to talk to you. Bishop Winley just ignored them and continued speaking with me and I explained to him what was happening regarding my 72 hour UA charge and said I will have a pre court martial tomorrow and he said “Oh we have been fasting and nothing is going to happen and it will not even be on your record”
The next day I went to the pre court martial session and I was answering questions and at the end the commanding officer said OK I have heard enough I am satisfied and “I never did this before in my entire career but I am not even going to put it on your record”. Praise the Lord for the word of the Lord through a prophet!
satan Plays Chess With Jesus
Around 1976 or I had a student (Norman) that was saying that God spoke to him and that he spoke in tongues and he had told that to my superior as well and we were planning on sending him to the Navy Psychiatrist, as we did not want mentally unstable individuals dealing with patients where one mistake could be fatal.
A couple of years passed and I got my comission and was sent to Naval Hospital Portsmouth Va and honestly I was not to excited about going as it was costing me quite a bit financially as my part time job in Bethesda it was not unusual to have more than 40 hours of pay in 3 days (2 double shifts and a single).
In January of the next year I was saved and I was working as a volunteer phone counselor at CBN in Virginia Beach. A few months after I was saved I thought of this fellow that we were thinking was mentally unbalanced and I called long distance directory assistance and I was able to talk to him. Since I knew no other Christians I asked him if he ever prayed for my salvation and he said brother..many times. We spoke a while and then he said he and his wife would like to come see me in a couple of weeks and I said that is great you can go to my church while you are here and we hung up.
Well for a few months now I had been active as a counselor and was blessed to be able to lead scores of people to Jesus and the Baptism of the Holy Ghost over the phone. One day I was on the set and Pat said he wanted to try something and he called it “bicycling” where they would be broadcasting the same show via tape at sequential times around the world and he asked if I could help out but I said I am expecting company. Pat said just pray about it and so that was that.
The Saturday Norman was coming to see me I got a call in the morning and he was on the phone. He told me that he and his wife were coming down to see me and they had a flat tire. He fixed the flat and was continuing but a very short distance further his other tire blew out and he told me he and his wife could not come down. I said oh I am sorry and he hung up. When I got off the phone I said “Praise the Lord now I can go out to CBN tomorrow night”.
Sunday came and after the 2 morning services I went over to CBN to work on the phones as usual instead of driving 30 miles home and then I would be close to church for the 7:30 service. Well after my shift ended I was getting in my brand new car to go to the church and it would not start.
Another counselor gave me a jump and I drove to church and parked the car and it still would not start. After the service I spoke to a friend of mine who was in the ministry and he said that tomorrow is a holiday so he will take me to the car dealer. I agreed that was a good idea and I said can I go out to CBN tonight and he said sure. I got to CBN and the second call I got was from a girl and she said “Mister I’m scared” and I said what are you doing and she said “nothing I was just playing with my Ouija board and my cards and magic 8 ball” Now as I am speaking to her the room is noticeably colder like a fan blowing on a block of ice would be, so I called another counselor over to me to lay hands on me. The girl on the phone then was telling me they call her carrot top and I said do you have red hair and she said yes and green eyes. Then she said Mister and I did not say anything and she said it again Mister why are you shaking? Indeed I was shaking because of the eeire chill but my voice was normal. I said to her do you believe Jesus can take care of this and she said I think so. I then prayed with her and she started speaking in tongues and she said what’s that? and this is exactly how I answered her “That is just like the voices of angels” and as soon as I said that the counselor agreeing with me lifted her hands and said hallelujah. As soon as her hands lifted the voice became gutteral and said “You fool” I said “I command you in the name of Jesus to speak who you are” and it said “Belial”.
I said honey break your Ouija board now and the voice said “she’s not going to be able to break it” and I said “In Jesus name why not?” and it said “Because it is made of metal” I said honey just separate the pieces (counselor again had hands on my shoulder) Then she said “I am getting sleepy” and the gutteral voice said ” I am going to leave you now” and the phone went dead.
I said to the counselor lets go down to the prayer room and she told the shift captain as well. While walking down she showed me what the Lord just gave her and it was Deut. 9:1 ¶ “Hear, O Israel: Thou art to pass over Jordan this day, to go in to possess nations greater and mightier than thyself…” We got to the prayer room and under the cross the shift captain was praying and what he prayed was part of Deut. 9:5 “Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thine heart, dost thou go to possess their land of nations greater and mightier than ourselves”.
In other words the counselor prayed one part of Deut. 9 and the shift captain not knowing this, prayed another part. What God was saying was that we had thought that we did not accomplish anything with the girl and God was saying that He had everything under control and we did what we were supposed to.
After the shift ended I got in the borrowed car and drove home and the next day we jumped my car and left it at the door of the service department with a note.
When I got to work the next day I called before I went home to check the status of my car and they said.. Well we had a little trouble starting it but it is fine there is nothing wrong with it and I got to the dealer and drove home.
So here is what happened.. My friend was coming to visit me when Pat had scheduled to “bicycle” the broadcast and I would not have been able to come but he had 2 flat tires. Then my brand new car would not start and yet God had a replacement for me and I was able to go out to CBN that night and then the demon possessed girl was on the phone and we thought it was over as the phone was hung up and then God gave 2 people scriptures out of the same chapter. Then I found out that there was nothing wrong with my car. This was a chess match between satan and Jesus and every move satan made Jesus effectively countered and had the victory.
To God Be the Glory
After I decided to leave the regular Navy I was planning on going to ORU to seminary but before I left a brother brought this word ..
“You’re going to ORU but not for the reason you thought and when you get there you’re going to find many people not as strong as their leader in fact they’re Shipwrecked in their faith”
When I got that word I thought to myself how can that be I’m going to Oral Roberts University and yet the first day in class the head professor in counseling said this “If you read the Bible more than an hour a day you will go crazy”
That’s all I needed to hear coming out of Rock Church in Virginia Beach. After class I went up to him and I said “Dr. I don’t know what you’re talking about I read the Bible more than an hour day and I have friends that do and we’re not crazy”
He then replied: “We’re on a different dichotomy” and he walked away. At this point I was saying to myself..what am I doing here?
Later on in the course he would have an audio tape of a woman who’s pastor sent her to ORU because he thought she was demon possessed,and this same professor played it for the class and there were several other Seminary professors there as well..
The word that was on the tape was such that as soon as she started speaking in tongues I said to the fellow sitting next to me.. “those are demon tongues” . I was transcribing this “prophecy” and it was after the porky pig imitation (my words for tongues she had) she started and was saying “this university will not fail where is your commitment?” and I said to the guy next to me “To Jesus Christ not this demon”..
The word went on and not only this professor but several others in the seminary were not only saying she was not demon possessed, but that she was a prophet of God. !! After the tape ended one of the sisters in class said “I did not feel right in my spirit” and this same professor said “You can’t go by that” and the class bell rang.
The next morning the professor started the class and said “Are there any questions from yesterday” and I was literally almost jumping up and down in my seat with my hand raised and he said yes ? ” I said yesterday when Susan said she didn’t feel right in her spirit you said you can’t go by that so let me read something” and so I started reading out of Acts 16 were Paul was preaching and there was a lady with a spirit of divination and as I was reading it.. some students in the back of the room were going Oooooh Oooooh ..mocking me trying to make ghost sounds.. Mind you this was a seminary training leaders of God .. now the word I was given before going there was confirmed..
A few weeks later in the course I was lying on my back studying and God spoke these words to me..”Ravening wolves, Pretense long prayers, Strain at gnats, My Word is tried“. I looked up the scriptures in my Bible concordance and was writing them down
Matt. 7:15 ¶ “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves”. Matt. 23:14 “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation”. Matt. 23:24 “Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel”. Psa. 18:30 “As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.”
and then this word came to me:
” Yea saith God even as the king commanded that the furnace be heated seven times hotter so my word is seven times stronger than anything put against it. Why do you hide you face from My Word, My Word is Pure, My Word is Pure, My Word is Pure“
I was transcribing this on the back of a business envelope and after it finished another word immediately followed and it was as this:
“I weep I weep my children for those that do not see there are those among you that do not hear. Why turn ye again to Egypt to be in bondage? Was it not Pharaoh that commanded the bricks be made without straw. My children My Word is strength, My Word is power My Word is deliverance. Have not I in days gone by commanded that My Word be tied as frontlets between thine eyes? Yea I say unto thee ye have turned aside from my word to go awhoring after the words of man. Why my children is not My Word, sufficient for thee, have not I provided all the answers for thee, for I have magnified My Word above my name and yet to you it is a light thing. Turn aside from the philosophies of men. Question not My Word for have I not said that My Word was written by holy men of old as they were moved upon by the Holy Ghost? Yea for the enemy is a deceiver and he has blinded thine eyes and stopped thine ears, Yea I am ready to move in this generation who will step in and say use me God for Thy Word is my guide? Who will say no longer Lord will I have my eyes blinded or my ears stopped, I even I will turn to Thy Word as I have never yet done, I will serve the Lord? If ye choose to do this then ye shall help reap a great harvest that I am about to send to the earth, a harvest of souls for My Glory. Then shall your presses be full and your vats overflowing. Then you shall hear me say well done my faithful ones enter into thy rest. This you will truly hear my children if you choose to obey me but if not you will hear me speak but it will be with the voice of wrath for heaven and earth shall pass away but My Word shall not saith the Lord thy God.”
After I got this word I called my classmate and we were discussing it for quite a while and we were praising God. We had an exam the next day and we never did study but God gave me and him A and A- on it.
I decided to bring this word to my prayer partners who met before class to see if they got a witness and they said that it was God and my Pastor friend in NYC that gave me the original word about going to ORU but not for the reason.. and he replied to me “Brother that’s God”..
With these confirmations I decided to bring it to class and so I read it out loud and this professor said when I was done..”Anyone else have anything?” Basically he ignored the entire word. Very shortly after that God said “Get Out of there.” and so I finished the semester and went to work in the church in the Bronx and within a year I was in Seminary at CBN University (Regent Univ ) and I had played the tape of that lady with the message in tongues from ORU and EVERY SINGLE one of my professors that heard it said “Ken those are demon tongues”.. What a difference between ORU and CBNU at that time (1984).
I found out that shortly after I left ORU with that strong prophetic word, God started cleaning house there and several of the professors in the seminary were fired and the one in this “story” was among the very first to go.
Since 1979 I have been teaching that the charismata of 1 Cor 12 that will be needed the very most in the last days will be Discerning of Spirits and as we see the days coming to an end and the multiple words coming forth it is certainly needed. It is one thing for a prophet of God to be saying of an elephant this is his trunk and another saying this is his tusk and another saying this is his leg, but it is an entirely different thing for a prophet to be saying this is a wing of a butterfly. God says in His word in James 3:11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Clearly many of the “prophetic words” that are coming forth in this last day are of God and many more are not of God.
Many years ago God said this to me: ” I will never violate My Word to accomplish My Will” and this is an admonition that is needed more than ever now to be understood and I strongly encourage everyone to diligently seek the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and then the gift of Discerning of Spirits (Ability to “supernaturally know what is of God, the flesh, or Satan) as the words of the Lord Jesus are crystal clear regarding the deception that although has started in a tiny measure will be unbelievable in the days to come.. Remember Pharaoh’s magicians also manifested a serpent and this is not close to what the Antichrist (Obama) and False prophet (Pope Francis) will perform. Matt. 24:24 “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect”.
Visions from 1956/7 and 1983
In 1956/57 I was walking on my sidewalk in the summer and I happened to see a bright white flash and looking to the right I saw the entire eastern view that I had was totally bright white. I lived about 12 miles from NYC and the skyline would be visible from the roof of my house but all I remember was that the entire sky to my right was brilliant white. I did not know what that was and I never told anyone but many years later sitting in an NBC Warfare class with other Naval Officers and medical personnel we were shown a video of a Hydrogen Bomb Detonation and then I realized what I saw in the 50’s. Looking back the entire of Manhattan from the Statue of Liberty in the south to the George Washington Bridge in the North was encompassed in the view that I saw all brilliant white. In this vision I saw the total destruction of NYC which of course is the great city known as Babylon referenced in Revelation 18:10-24
Rev. 18:10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
Rev. 18:11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
Rev. 18:12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
Rev. 18:13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
Rev. 18:14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
Rev. 18:15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
Rev. 18:16 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
Rev. 18:17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
Rev. 18:18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
Rev. 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
Rev. 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
Rev. 18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
Rev. 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
Rev. 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
In 1983 I was in a church on the ORU Campus in Tulsa and during the praise and worship I had another vision and I saw a city with tall buildings and there were no cars, buses, or trucks.. All the buildings looked abandoned but I saw people lined up along the curb and some were missing arms, legs, hands, eyes, feet and more. The next thing I saw was someone going down the line praying for the people. This praying was not as I was expecting and I described it as “bing, bing, bing” . Virtually as soon as the person praying touched one person he moved on to the next all the way down the line and those that were missing arms, legs, hands, eyes, feet, etc INSTANTLY were made whole. Then the word of the Lord came to me and it was on this wise “The Church started in the street and it will end in the street” I was made to know that these healings will be seen in the end days and they will be so miraculous that we can only imagine now.
Glory to God,
I was able to make an audio of the Word of knowledge that Rev John Gimenez had and the powerful prayer he and the elders and visiting ministers prayed on 20May79 the day my mother was miraculously healed of an “incurable” stage 4 cancer and I have attached it here :
