There are several other sellers who are also marketing the book.
Dr. Alexis McClinton wrote the foreword.
This is my first book and I’m so excited to share it with you.
I have previously written monthly articles for The Remnant, a revival newspaper. I was also an investigative journalist, writing front page stories for The Daily News in Middlesboro, KY. I have written blog entries for ONE.Org. I’ve had letters to the editor featured in Corbin, KY. I have had several poems published in poetry collections and collegiate journals.
The Other Prophets, according to Target…
includes topics such as numbers, styles, names, burdens, places, dreams, coincidences and colors. All this from the perspective of a long time pastor and gifted evangelist.
My own synopsis of The other Prophets… sees it as a book that began as an overview of prophetic ministry but turned into a burdened intercessory encounter with God.
This book still examines key pieces of the prophetic tool box. But God broke me—in a good way— and gave me tears to fuel me into a broader look at prophetic ministry. What comes forth is a lament for purified hearts, fire baptized, sanctified servants who are something less than famous but more than lukewarm.
On the back is a nifty picture of myself in case someone needs a visual idea of what the author looks like.
The back cover also gives a brief bio to help people understand me. It says I’ve grown into a nearly monastic lifestyle, with growing appreciation for the anchorite, hidden devotion seen in the early ministry of Moses, John Baptist, Jesus, Paul, and the Mystics. Early on, and for more than 20 years, I was quite active in youth ministry and itinerant revivals that often extended for weeks and months at a time. Plus, it mentions I have a lovely bride and three lovable dogs. Ultimately, I’m on a daily mission to build upon my lovesick relationship with Jesus.

And right on cue, I notice someone shares a post advertising a weekly video with a group of ministers who have lauded the former president with more praise than they’ve given to Jesus Christ. They don’t seem to want Jesus to come back. They want DJT back. And last night they were supposed to be rewarded by having him call in to their show. They were quite giddy about that. These Jeremiah 23 ministers are still hanging around. They’re still subliminally instigating division, hate, civil war, and insurrection.
I am for peace, but when I speak, They are for war.
There’s also still tons of conspiracy theories vying for people’s mental attention. Those demons of deception are bombarding the soul of our nation (including the church).
Again the Lord said to me, “A conspiracy exists among the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
The Jeremiah 23 shepherds are destroying and scattering (verses 1-2). Accordingly, the Jeremiah 23 prophets and priests are polluted with wickedness (verse 11).
Hear me. This is prophetic. It is forth-telling, rather than foretelling. This is where we are. We can’t pray it away. We’re in the middle of it. But we can humble ourselves and disconnect from all and every bit of delusion that God helps us to see. We cannot see the traps and missteps if He doesn’t show it to us individually. Part of the spiritual sickness is senselessness. Just as COVID has been realized to impact and diminish the natural senses, endtime deception is impacting and diminishing our spiritual senses.
Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven
We must draw near to our God and attempt to block out every other idol, opinion, biased newsfeed, argument, pride, and distraction. As we worship and press, I believe He will heal our eyes and cover us.
Early in ‘20, when I saw the vision of deception coming into America… I never mentioned the entry point was the northwest. To be honest, I didn’t know then that that was important. Shortly after the descent and entrance of this spirit of fog and deception, it quickly spread throughout the entirety of our nation and possibly the world; I didn’t see a cut-off.
In the morning before I took off to Seattle (a few days ago. late August), Holy Spirit told me to watch for the signs—things He would show me once I arrived.
The city was just starting to take the boards off the windows after being bunkered down from a full year of riots.
2 Kings 6
17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, LORD, so that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
The next night, Holy Spirit woke me and began to speak to me about the windows. Windows are prophetic. They represent our view. Then, Holy Spirit reminded me of the vision of fog and deception. He told me the locale was pertinent, meaningful. I had seen the darkness, the fog, coming down and in—off of the sea (see). The city was Seattle. A battle for our ability to see was upon us. I saw it as a mixture of darkness and fog. Both are agents that diminish visibility.
Seattle is also the origin city of Starbucks. The emblem of Starbucks is a seductive, nautical creature, a siren. Mythical sirens have a distinct call, a musical sound or singing that is used to lure sailors into the rocks, shipwrecking them. Thus, the siren is the opposite of a lighthouse. The opposite of salvation. It isn’t coincidence that Seattle is known for music. There’s a rich mixture of symbolism and reality, spiritual and natural that exists in this place. However, I will add that I am not calling Starbucks “Jezebel”nor am I suggesting that you not drink their coffee. Instead, I believe it is a physical/natural representation (possibly a manifestation) of a spiritual presence and activity.
Too, I feel that God has revealed to me that here in this Northwest port city (and Portland), there has been a manifestation of the Jezebel spirit acting as a siren, calling in the end times monster known as “Deception.” This massive influx of deception has churned out nonstop conspiracies, false narratives, lies, and false prophecies. After all, Jezebel is the queen of false prophets.
1 Kings 18
Now therefore send and gather all Israel to me at Mount Carmel, and the 450 prophets of Baal and the 400 prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”
Nevertheless, the sign God wanted me to see was windows being un-boarded. The view, and clarity returning. On the end of the eighth month, God told me He was opening windows of opportunity and prophetic vision for a season of receiving dreams, visions, and prophecy. A season of divine communication and download for consecrated, sanctified prophetic vessels. For the next eight months God will be showing things to His prophets. I saw an 8 turned on its side, and taking on the appearance of eyeglasses. God, for a special season, is equipping prophetic persons with an enhanced ability to see.

Also of interest, just outside of Seattle is where Microsoft is located. Microsoft developed the computer operating systems known as Windows. And Microsoft was co-founded by a man named Gates.
Consider, part of the New Testament Saul becoming Paul was a prophet’s prayer that resulted in scaly things falling from Paul’s eyes and Paul was able to see clearly again (Acts 9:18).
And Samson prayed that God would avenge him of his eyes that had been gouged out (Judges 16:28).
Also, the clearest sign of Joel’s promised last days outpouring is spiritual vision (Joel 2, Acts 2).
Furthermore, there are are many Scriptures throughout the Bible that reference heavenly doorways, windows, and gates. Common men who loved God were caught up into these portals, or they saw beyond natural limits. God hasn’t removed Himself from the happenings of humanity. We are God’s story. His supernatural creativity is still active. We are blessed to be alive in this historic, prophetic hour.
Watch. God is about to do it. The eyes of the Body are about to be healed. Secrets are about to be revealed. God has friends. And God has some things He wants to share…and show.
I truly feel my calling has become that of a watchman. That title might sound cool, but I’ve discovered that it’s a position that can leave me feeling lonely, misunderstood, hated and other wonderful luxuries. JI
Having said that, I have another watchman word. This word isn’t the coolest thing you’ll ever read, and it isn’t concerned about building me a following. It’s just an honest report from my post on the wall. It a look at where we’ve been, where we are, how we got here, and where I believe we’re going.
First of all, this word is not condemning the common, smaller church that still has in-person meetings with great attention and adherence to safety.
things like a big NYE conference should probably not have happened this year. That was undoubtedly a Covid spreader. Obviously, our religious liberties are extensive in America. Yes, evidently we even have the right to be spreaders of deadly viruses.
Many American businesses have been suffering financially. Nevertheless, most of these have honored state laws and safety protocols.
Americans are doing their best. Frequently, leaders and business owners are encouraging each other with phrases like “we’re in this together.” This commonly heard phrase partly means, we are all suffering somehow. Hence, the encouragement is knowing that you’re not alone in your struggles.
Well, it’s true that they are in the struggle—together. Meanwhile, some Churches and ministries are managing to stay open if they choose to rebel against the admonition of those in expertise and authority. Some ministries are flexing their “rights” and choosing to not be in the struggle—together—alongside the rest of the country.
Here’s the crux, gathering huge crowds to do Christmas Caroling in a heavily populated county that’s already plagued by overcrowding in its hospitals is a smack in the face of the hundreds of thousands who have had death, sickness, or loss of jobs and finances in their family. Not to mention, many such Christian conferences or street rallies do not adhere to wearing masks and other safety measures.
The fact that these meetings were held, and in many cases, almost no one wore masks, and social distancing wasn’t properly organized, administered or emphasized is an embarrassment to the body of Christ.
How did we get here? Well, here’s what I believe God is showing me concerning our wandering journey. In a church culture that has pushed for the pendulum to swing away from over-valuing and relying on the office of Pastor…I sense the pendulum has swung too far. This often happens when change and transition are occurring. Unfortunately it also leads to extremes.
We have been in a moment where our most esteemed value has been given to prophets, apostles, and worship leader-celebrities.
Now, suddenly, we are in dire need of Shepherds. We need seasoned leaders. We greatly need the grace gift of mature, intelligent Pastors.
It seems we have been driven into errors due to ego, immaturity, flamboyance, emotion, zeal, and ambitious opportunity.
I don’t want to sound angry, arrogant, or judgmental. I’m burdened.
Nevertheless, I still like, respect, love and pray for those I think have made reckless, stubborn, maverick, or dangerous ministry decisions. These aren’t easy times. There have been tough decisions to make.
However, I am…disappointed. And I’m also hoping there are few fatalities because of any year’s end money-raising ministry events or public gatherings for the sake of making [political-stance] statements.
Let us humble ourselves and repent of valuing ministry voices based on how loud, trendy, or popular they are. May we realize that our bucking against pastoral monopoly within the church has now caused us to go a bit too far in that regard.
May we remember the beauty of a simple church. Indeed, a simple Pastor with a Shepherd’s heart is a golden treasure.
A new idea of the church is probably a revival of what’s been lost. And I admit, I didn’t see this coming.
👆🏼These are things I believe God is wanting to restore to the church.
I believe God has a trick play up His sleeve. It’s something we didn’t see coming. I believe God wants us to get back to the basics. I believe God wants to lead us out of DC, and back to the heartland. I prophesy a revival of the small, local church…as opposed to the mega church enterprise. After all, small churches are the most exciting places in the universe when God’s glory shows up and folks fill nearly every seat and parking spot. I promise…it’s an awesome thing.
In summary, the church has been somewhat embarrassed and shamed over the past year. Our discernment has been off. Our prophecies have been off. Our focus and allegiance has been off.
We’ve made some costly mistakes and we’ve seriously lacked in wisdom and leadership.
Still, out of this tumultuous time, I see God bringing us back to our center. 1. He’s going to revive the local church. 2. He’s going to revive the Pastor (Shepherd).
Jeremiah 3:15 And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will guide you with knowledge and understanding.
Lastly, as God moves our hearts back to simple, selfless purity…a new unity will emerge in the ministry offices like we have never seen before. I see a wheel with spokes. I see all offices contributing and serving.
John 17:10-11 10 All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them. 11 And I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.
Also, I believe we will see more women becoming Pastors and they will be anointed, wise, and godly.
Plus, I feel that Sunday night meetings will make a comeback in many places, especially as the spirit of revival rests on local bodies.
Eph 4:11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers,
“Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.” Matt 5:5 NASB
Jesus never trained His disciples to fight. Instead, He taught us to turn the other cheek, to forgive, and to lay our lives down.
In Luke 9, James and John wanted to call fire down and destroy people who weren’t receptive of Christ. However, Jesus rebuked this aggressive attitude.
And, Peter once wielded a violent sword, but…Jesus commanded Peter, “Put your sword away” (John 18:11). Then, the Lord healed the wound Peter had caused. After this, Jesus—who said “follow me”—willingly walked ahead toward his own arrest and crucifixion.
Later in time, the Apostles became martyrs. They suffered horrible deaths. Still yet, the early church didn’t buy or make weaponry, and they never formed militias.
So, having pointed out these important lessons, allow me to add that Jesus was not afraid of confrontation. And, the New Testament is not void of swift judgment.
After all, Jesus cleansed the temple by defiantly removing the moneychangers. Also, Jesus sternly rebuked Peter and called him Satan when Peter tried to resist the way of the cross. Nevertheless, both of these instances were corrective teaching moments.
Plus, there were other occasions where Jesus addressed the Pharisees and Sadducees in harsh tones. Nonetheless, it is obvious that Jesus wasn’t here to have arm-wrestling matches, or fist-fights with un-agreeable people.
In Acts 5, there is a unique story where Ananias and Sapphira sequentially fell dead. From that, Scripture states that the fear of God spread throughout the church. It’s hard to develop doctrine around this rare story, but it happened and the fear of God was established as a relevant aspect even in the New Covenant dispensation.
Simon the sorcerer was severely rebuked later in the book of Acts. His error was sharply addressed. Yet, it appears he had the opportunity to seek repentance and grow up from his immature heart.
Two things we can collectively gather from these examples.
1.)God doesn’t want us involved in bloody, angry, vicious actions.
2.) That doesn’t mean that God doesn’t want us to contend for the faith.
Contrarily, I believe we are to stand and make an overcoming difference by:
A) Intellectual reasoning and teaching.
B) resisting and warring in the spiritual arena.
Firstly, let us acknowledge that God chose Paul to help establish the newly birthed church. Paul was a highly educated individual, trained to be a rabbi—minister, teacher, lawyer. And, Paul certainly utilized his mind, and training to teach, write, and assert the truths of new covenant inspiration.
Another major Apostle of the New Testament was Peter. One time, Peter said we should be ready to give a defense of our inner hope to anyone who questions us (1Peter 3:15).
Otherwise, if we are going to fight, we are to fight spiritually, not physically engaging with other persons (2 Cor 10:3-4, Eph 6:12). Once, Jesus even addressed a natural storm in a spiritual way. He spoke to winds and waves—the storm—rebuked it and commanded it to be still and quiet. This was a spiritual response to a natural threat.
So, in the day we live in, there will be no repeat of 1 Kings 18’s prophetic showdown. After winning that prayer competition, Elijah slaughtered those failed false prophets.
No where in the New Testament do believers act with violence, strength, or physical judgment like what was seen in the Old Testament through men such as Samson, Samuel, David, Elijah, Jehu and others.
The closest thing you will find to a preacher and a militia in the NT was at the betrayal of Christ.
John 18:3. Judas then, having received a band [of men] and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.
