Please keep in mind, if it was not for the inquiry we received and Holy Spirit prompting me to speak on this matter – I would not speak publicly concerning Perry Stone’s situation. With that being said, below are some of the details surrounding what the Spirit of the LORD had given us concerning Perry Stone’s situation prior to his situation becoming public. It was these visions/dream that made us decide to separate from his ministry. But we are still hopefully/prayerful that Perry Stone truly repents for everything he knows he has done. And get right with God without hiding behind things or pointing his finger to other causes to his situation. That he will take full responsibility for his missteps, seek not only God’s but those he offended forgiveness, take full advantage of those that God has placed in his life that is holding him accountable, and let go of his pride by blaming others and things as the source of his issues – i.e. his Italian culture, the stress of ministry, and some women misinterpreting his intention. With that being said, below are dates and details of what God revealed to us about Perry Stone.
Initially, I was only going to share the vision, Sand In the Ears, I had on June 7, 2021. But felt led that I need to share the progression of how God revealed things to us. So, I am sharing 2 visions [vision 1 occurred on April 29, 2020; the second vision on June 7, 2021; and a dream I had on January 24, 2022] concerning Perry.
My dream and visions are taken from our archive records as indicated below.
Perry Stone Challenges and State of Confusion
The first vision God provided concerning Perry Stone, occurred on Wednesday, April 29, 2020 (approximately two years ago). Holy Spirit revealed the following concerning Perry during one of our corporate prayers.
Felicia Crawford was leading us in prayer. During her prayer, Holy Spirit gave me a word (word of knowledge) concerning Perry. [Word of knowledge is simple when Holy Spirit transmits knowledge to you on something that you would have no ability or means to be able to know about.]
Vision 1: challenges and state of confusion
Now, in 2022, Holy Spirit gave me two more dreams concerning Perry Stone. Keep in mind, when I received the first vision back on April 29, 2020, our ministry started then to pray for Perry. And we were still praying for him when Holy Spirit provided the next two dreams.
Three months after receiving the first vision, the public received the first indication that there were problems in Perry’s ministry. Directed towards him was a post on Facebook after one ministry group that was covered by Perry’s ministry separated from his ministry. Machal Brewington, Director of the Remnant Dance Team stated on her July 21, 2020, Facebook post.
Sometime after this, someone from Perry’s ministry posted a Facebook comment concerning Perry’s temporary leave from his post. But this Facebook post is no longer available on Facebook.
In this post, it spoke about Perry’s preaching and writing works of the Old and New Testaments. The conferences, Manna-Fest television programs aired, prayer meetings, and worship services held at OCI and hosted by Perry. It also mentioned the health issues and the mental struggles Perry has endured due to his rigorous schedule. The post continued and stated that these responsibilities have emotionally depleted and burnt Perry out. As a result, Perry needed rest and time to heal to seek spiritual renewal, emotional help, and physical healing. So, the VOE board, which oversees Perry’s ministry was not sitting him down. But placing Perry on a mandatory sabbatical for an undetermined amount of time. They asked for everyone to respect Perry’s privacy but to keep him in their prays.
Now, with that being said, I don’t remember exactly when Perry was allowed to return from his sabbatical. But I do remember discussing with my minister partner that I felt (1) it was too soon, and (2) Perry had not completely come clean about his role in his situation. Therefore, more time should have been given for him to acknowledge his role in his situation so he could possibly truly repent and attempt to make things right. Not only with God but the people he hurt.
This leads me to the second vision.
vision 2: Perry Stone – Sand In His Ears
1. This second vision occurred during one of our corporate prayers on Saturday, June 7, 2021. Now, keep in mind, that neither one of us (Felicia or myself) had followed Perry Stone’s ministry or his online content in months. We did not even bring him up during our prayer time. Holy Spirit just dropped him in my spirit during Felicia’s prayer.
In this vision, I saw two brothers and Perry Stone sitting on a platform stage, speaking to an audience. While on the stage, Perry kept picking in his ear. One of the two brothers noticed what Perry was doing and it caused him to pick at his ear. And then he tilts his head. When he did, sand came out of his ears. When Perry saw this, he was shocked. He became curious, so he did the same thing. When he tilted his head to one side and then the other, sand too came out of his ears. So, when the other brother saw what had happened with Perry and the other brother, he too tilted his head but no sand came out of his ears.
So, we asked Holy Spirit, what was going on here? Holy Spirit explained that Perry was not listening to good counsel as he described to me some of the problems Perry had recently run into.
After this vision, 3 months later, the first of many scandals became public concerning Perry. Holy Spirit reminds me of my previous dream/vision concerning Perry. And then said, “Perry still has sand in his ears.”
Dream 1: Perry stone – conflict over pills
1. So, the first dream I had concerning Perry was on January 24, 2022. In this dream, Felicia and I were driving around in a van from place to place to different communities, resolving different peoples’ problems. At some point, Felicia and I were back in what appeared to be our office setting. Now, I am going to skip to the part in this dream where Perry comes.
At some point in my dream, I was in our office hallway. In the hallway, I was separating my pills (vitamins, herbs, and minerals) into 3 sections. I was taking them to solve a health problem I had or something. When Felicia noticed the pills, she became angry with me. She started to quote Bible Scriptures explaining why what I was doing was a waste of my time, money, and resources. In the dream, I listened but did not necessarily agree with her view. I accused her of misusing the Scriptures. I felt she was trying to make her view a doctrine when what she was actually giving me were her strong views and good advice on what she felt I should do.
In comes Perry Stone. Perry just appears in our office as we were having this disagreement. He never addresses us. He just kept walking back and forth throughout our office space. At some point, I stopped him and suggested to Felicia we should get Perry’s sound advice concerning our disagreement. Initially, Felicia was not feel but agreed to it because after all, he is Perry Stone.
As we listened to Perry’s advice, he never really addressed the problem at hand. Instead, he only offered his personal opinion. So, I thought, maybe he needed clarity. So, interrupted him to make the question we had more clear. But he kept inserting his opinion instead of providing us sound Godly and Biblical guidance about the conflict Felicia and I was having. And the dream ended.
Acts 2:17 says “… it shall be in the last days, God says, ‘that I will pour forth of My Spirit on all mankind; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.”
This blog is really not about me, but more about my Father and our relationship. How we interact with one another and my response to His prompting. To be honest, at the moment, I do not know what to expect from this blog. I have no idea how personal I will get, what exactly I will share, and how often I will do it. But one thing is for certain. I will share what God places on my heart to share.
