Matthew 20:1-16

Christians Censoring Christians and Why I Now Support Only Prophecy Watchers…

Hello friends!  I know, I know.. I haven’t written a blog in a year.  But similar to what I said last year, our business has grown and is still growing and I think I must work 60+ hours per week.  That leaves little room for blogging.  But something happened in the last couple days and I just had to write about it.  This is not a blog I would normally write.  I don’t usually comment on such matters.  But this one really bothered me and I felt the Holy Spirit urging me to write about it. Maybe so those at fault can see the error of their ways and turn back to doing things the way God would want them to?  I don’t know.  But in any event, here are my thoughts and feelings on the matter:

My husband and I are huge supporters of the new ministry, PROPHECY WATCHERS.  The Christian teachers/ministers of that ministry are Gary Stearman and Bob Ulrich.  These two fine gentlemen used to be a part of Prophecy in the News (PITN).  However, they left a few months ago to begin their own ministry.  They really haven’t said much about why they left.  I feel in my spirit that there was a ‘conflict’ although I have no earthly knowledge of that.  I don’t know either of those men personally;  only through their books and teachings.  What I do know is that they have opened doors of knowledge for my husband and I for many years.  Whether they did that through PITN or PROPHECY WATCHERS ministries, we did not care.  We began watching PITN shows after J.R. Church had already passed on.  We never saw him while he was still on this Earth but have watched many shows with him and Gary Stearman.  But for my husband and I, Gary and Bob were the ones at the heart of the ministry that was started by J.R.  Simple as that.

So we attempted to continue on with PITN while we also started to follow Prophecy Watchers. Gary was replaced by Dr. Kevin Clarkson.  A man whom we had no prior knowledge of before we saw him on PITN.  We tried watching a couple of videos of him early on.  Sadly, he just didn’t speak to us the way Gary and Bob did.  We were missing the messages.  We didn’t feel in our spirits that this was the man who would lead us any further on our path.  But we did feel that continuing to follow Gary and Bob WAS exactly what the Lord wanted us to do.

That being said, I continued to see PITN Facebook posts in my news feed.  I liked keeping up with them.  After all, we’ve donated money to the ministry over the last couple years, bought books, DVDs and streamed the prophecy summits!  We’ve been great supporters of that ministry.  But what happened this week let me down so much, I will no longer support them.  In fact, this will be the very last time I ever write or speak about them again.  And it’s all due to their CENSORSHIP of truth.

I’ll get to the heart of what happened in moment, but for now I’ll start from the beginning:

The first message on the change posted on the PITN Facebook page about Gary’s departure was cryptic and again, in my spirit I felt was not entirely truthful.  It seemed “nice” but was lacking the emotional depth you would think would be there after so many years.  That seemed odd to us.  But we simply shrugged it off at the time.  Then I started to notice little things like, pictures and posts of Gary and Bob disappeared from the PITN Facebook page.  While it looked very innocent, only leaving posts that centered on Dr. Clarkson and guest speakers, it also looked like “hard feelings” coming out on the part of PITN.  You can’t “wash your hands” of the past!  Gary and Bob helped BUILD PITN, along with J.R.  You can’t just go back and act like that didn’t happen.  Another example of something that appears to be “hard feelings” on the part of PITN;  Gary Stearman’s book “Time Travelers of the Bible” is missing from the PITN store.  Why?  If there are no hard feelings.  (There may be others missing too, but that’s the one I noticed.)

Even after all this, I was still following PITN on Facebook and looking forward to the Orlando Prophecy Summit coming up.  But that has all changed.  What really got to me was when they censored a nice, innocent post I made on their page.  I wish I could link it for you, but again, they DELETED it.  Almost immediately, it was gone.  The original post I commented on was from Linda and entitled “My final word about Gary and Bob.”  In the post, she says that “the hate speech and threats have got to stop”, and “….we have had to monitor our facebook page round the clock. We delete all the ugly comments, so you don’t have to be exposed to what we see. It is not Christian like, and I don’t want you to be exposed to the ugly language and hate.”

So they are deleting them before anyone can see them?  Okay.  What about the deletions of Gary and Bob from the Facebook page altogether?  Why can’t we see that?  Why censor at all?  Why not let us see the “ugly language and hate” and respond to it ourselves?

But I digress… I read Linda’s post and agreed with her.  So I made a comment.  I will attempt to remember as much as I can, since I just wrote it a couple days ago.  I said, and very nicely I might add, that I agreed that Christians shouldn’t be saying bad things about other Christians.  That my husband and I tried to watch Dr. Clarkson but that he just didn’t speak to us like Gary and Bob do.  That we still support the ministry.  I said, speaking to the nay-sayers, why would Gary and Bob give notice they were leaving PITN in any other way?  They were EMPLOYEES, and handled it exactly how employees would when leaving an employer to begin their own similar business.  I also said that people should Keep Looking Up with Dr. Clarkson or Keep Watching with Gary and Bob, but stop placing blame, pointing fingers and grow up already.  That was the meat of my post.  It was not ugly but instead supportive of BOTH ministries.

Then, just like that, they deleted it before anyone could see it.

WHY?  Because I said Dr. Clarkson didn’t speak to me?  Because I dared to mention Gary and Bob?  Seriously, WHY?  How childish on the part of PITN.  And Linda wonders why they are still getting hate messages?  If those at PITN run their ship the way they are running their Facebook page, look no further.  The answer is as clear as day.

In conclusion, the fact of the matter is what PITN is now doing is CENSORING.  And worse, CENSORING CHRISTIANS.  CENSORING THE WORD.  That is the hard truth of the matter.  In their need to lick their wounds or passive aggressively jab Gary and Bob, they are keeping the Word of God from all of us!  THAT IS NOT CHRISTIAN MY FRIENDS.  And I no longer support their ministry because of it.  Plain and simple.

  1. I hear you. Also, everyone who gave money to keep PITN on for the camera format change thinking GS would always be hosting or Bob deserves to hear the truth but I guess we will have to wait until all secrets will be revealed. The directive to handle disputes only within the church body is probably the thought Gary & Bob are working under. I agree something is just plain wrong with it. The “Keep watching” line is falling towards flat in comparison to the “Keep Looking Up”. How disappointing. Regardless, Praise God they are back on.

    Been devouring your BLOG all day. Just today found you while searching for answers on where they went off to.

    Also, I would like to comment your having been in the new age stuff is probably part of the answer for why you have had “paranormal” visitations. Any involvement with calling out to the wrong false gods or giving them attention seems to allow them footholds. I myself had a disembodied, angry, whispery voice call me the “B” word after I boldly disputed a TV Psychic as being deceived by demons one night because I was almost lost to the deceived Sylvia Browne books teachings. It wouldn’t surprise me if I had technical difficulties in telling you this in my reply or heard another otherworldly verbal attack for daring to illuminate the deception yet again. Ironically or not,,, my husband had a weird experience where he wrecked the car very soon after that happened so, please say a pray of protection for us just in case since I dared reply about it. He came out OK but our finances have been nearly wrecked from the auto insurance increase and having to take out a car loan to replace the car. God bless you.

  2. Sorry I’m just now responding to your post! I get so busy sometimes with my “day job” that I forget to come back and check up on my blog. Sorry to hear about the car accident! The devil is always looking for a way into our lives to wreak havoc. My husband and I try to close as many open doors as possible so this does not happen. And, of course, we pray protection over our home, possessions, children and pets DAILY. I will say that I’m not sure that the new age stuff I used to believe is the cause for paranormal happenings in my life. There has been at least one demon around me in the past that I now call the “idiot demon”. (Of course back then I didn’t know this was a demon.) But when I think back on those past events in my life, they were certainly caused by demon(s) wreaking havoc. This particular idiot demon would often overplay his hand and pretty soon I began to see a pattern that told me the new age stuff was a lie. But getting back to why I think it’s not necessarily think my experiences are related to my past…. I believe it’s because I am highly sensitive. I know that so-called psychics use that word but in my case, my sensitivity is for ALL my senses. For example, I love what most people call “bland” food because to me it has a huge flavor. I can’t eat spicy food at all; Too much stimulation for me. My hearing, touch, etc… ALL my senses are higher than most people. When demons come around, I can oftentimes FEEL them in the Spirit. Sometimes I catch a glimpse out of the corner of my eye and a couple times have seen a “steak” of dark light move quickly through the house (appeared as though a demon was simply passing through on his way elsewhere, or maybe our praise and worship music sends them away quickly!) Other times, my Spirit senses them and I start speaking in tongues out of the blue. Rarely, I have other types of experiences. Once at my in-laws home, I was sitting in the car waiting for my husband and “felt” something jump on the trunk of the car and walk over the top to peer at me through the windshield. I didn’t realize what it was at first and nervously was looking side to side for a person! I didn’t realize I was feeling in the Spirit. I immediately began singing a praise and worship song and the thing (which looked sort of like a gargoyle) started running around the car in circles so fast, it was a blur! Then it took off down the street and was gone. Since that time I have seen 2 gargoyle-demons at once perched up on the tops of my in-laws home and neighbor’s home watching over ALL the homes in the neighborhood. (And as a side note, I found out AFTER this happened that my in-laws fixer-upper home when they bought it, had a pentagram painted on the wall of the living room.) Again, this type of stuff doesn’t happen often to me, but I believe is because I am just a highly sensitive person. Anyway, hope things are going better for you. I will pray for your family and may the Lord Bless You and Your Family!
