Prophet Yahweh – EXPOSE’ of the UFO Seer and Summoner

Prophet Yahweh 
as examined by Guy Malone June 3, 2005

Can he predict or summon UFOs? Do his miracles speak for God?
Or is it all a bunch of hot air?


Recently Ramon Watkins, popularly known as “Prophet Yahweh,” has been featured in many news articles and television shows, depicting his ability to summon UFOs on demand. Most recently, he did so for a TV news crew, which video-taped the UFO for it’s audiences…

Richard Bartholomew’s “expose” on PY (Because of the transient nature of the internet, I have pasted Bartholomew’s notes and well-researched links below.)

Given the religious nature of the claims he is making, such as
“BE ADVISED! YAHWEH and His Angels are superhuman beings, on other planets who fly in spaceships!”
of course people write me to ask “What do you think of this?” So…

HEY!!! What’s Prophet Yahweh doing with those weather balloons?
  
Go Here!
(Note that he says it’s not him however)

Read Prophet Yahweh’s October 2000 newsletter update claiming that UFOs would appear for Flagstaff AZ’s  KNAZ TV 2.

Well, when it comes to UFOs, I know the “weather balloon” theory is pretty old, but according to the reports at prophetyahweh.funtigo.com things are not looking good for Ramon. It’s easy to believe that the balloons are a form of near field communication with earthlings, but where is the evidence. The gig could indeed, already be up!

But in case you don’t buy that one (Prophet Yahweh says it’s not really him in the photos with weather balloons), for the sake of argument let’s not dispute Prophet Yahweh’s ability to predict and/or summon UFOs - sometimes. He has done so on demand many times in fact, but as research into his past proves, he has also failed to do so on certain key occurrences. The ABC footage by itself is pretty convincing, but he also attempted the same feat for Las Vegas’ NBC affiliate that very week, and no UFOs appeared. The KVBC crew likened Prophet Yahweh to “The Amazing Kreskin” who 3 years ago promised UFOs over Las Vegas, to no avail.

In October 2000, Prophet Yahweh predicted to those on his his e-mail list that UFOs were  “…going to show up, in a big way, before the cameras of NBC’s (Flagstaff, Arizona) affiliate KNAZ TV, Channel 2.” This prediction too was a wash-out, but Prophet Yahweh’s own words then prove very telling… In addition to emails, Prophet Yahweh’s followers could now engage in mobile phone marketing because sending texts as a phone of mobile marketing means his messages will always be received.

“Dear List, one thing is for sure in my mind, and that is that NBC station: KNAZ TV Channel 2, in Flagstaff Arizona is the first station chosen by These Beings I serve to verify, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that there is life in the universe other than us on earth! In this matter will we see if these Beings are loyal to Their servants and keeps Their words to them. Also, we’ll see if Prophet Yahweh is who he says he is or not!” (emphasis added)

Judging solely by his own words, apparently the “beings he serves” are not particularly loyal to him, since that attempt resulted in a no-show. And apparently Prophet Yahweh is not “who he says he is” since the predicted Flagstaff NBC station in 2000 brought his cause no attention – although Las Vegas’ ABC affiliate most certainly did, only 4 1/2 years late. But since he has produced these recent results, it’s fair to ask whether publishing these details of his failures is “just nitpicking.”

Since PY relies mostly upon the Old Testament for his teachings, it is worth noting that the failure of a prophet’s prophecy to come true is THE SINGULAR SIGN given in the Old Testament that the “prophet” is NOT speaking for God (Duet 18:20-22), a ruse then punishable by death! So no matter the awe inspired by the times he correctly predicts or summons UFOs, “missing it” even once is (biblically speaking) the mark of a false prophet. If claiming to speak for God, the Biblical standard is 100% accuracy, not “most of the time” or better than an average astrologer – because after all, as the saying goes, “Even a broken clock is right twice a day.”

“God” should therefore not be attributed to whatever UFOs do appear when PY summons them. Frankly and for the record, I believe the person behindprophetyahweh.funtigo.com has most likely got PY’s UFOs pegged with his weather balloon theory, but his teachings are apparently inspired by some entity or entities other than God (note his many references to the “Beings he serves” rather than the “God” he serves), or are simply his own ideas (although it sounds like he’s been reading Barry Downing). But if you prefer to believe in his status as a sometimes miracle-worker (more on that below), PY’s documented failures alreadyqualify him as not being a true prophet of God  - at least according to what the Old Testament says the specific requirement for a prophet is - and his teachings should therefore not be heeded, even if a UFO does indeed appear over Las Vegas.

But let’s let his past failures be bygones for the moment, and assuming he’s not hoaxing us with balloons, let’s give him some credit for the pretty incredible feat of summoning some UFOs (orbs, anyways – his claims that his UFOs are “spacecraft” or that he can predict or summon spacecraft are yet to be demonstrated). Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt a little while longer, while examining the topic of miracles, predictions and his especially grandiose claims that he is a – if not THE – “Seer of YAHWEH.”

In the Bible, throughout history and today, many people have displayed an ability to work miraculous signs and wonders, and some claimed to be “working for God.” Many indeed were, while many were not. Yet they were still able to produce miracles, such as Pharaoh’s court magicians (whom Moses and Aaron “one-upped” by causing his staff-turned-to-snake to eat their staffs-turned-to-snakes – Exodus 4:1-5 ; Exodus 7:10-12) ; or the “damsel” slave girl who could accurately prophecy and tell fortunes, only to have the apostle Paul drive out the demon who gave her this power (Acts 16:16-18).

Specific to Prophet Yahweh, it behooves modern persons to take the time to study or inquire further into the possible source of his alleged power to predict or summon UFOs. Since PY claims the Bible for his inspiration, a little biblical research of the topic is in order. In some cases, God will indeed perform a miracle for the benefit of a person or group of people, in order to inspire faith and to “believe the messenger.”

Jhn 2:11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
Jhn 2:23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast [day], many believed in his name, when they saw themiracles which he did.
Jhn 6:2 And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.
Act 2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: 
Act 6:8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people. 
Act 8:6 And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracleswhich he did. 
Act 8:13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done. 
Act 15:12 Then all the multitude kept silence, and gave audience to Barnabas and Paul, declaring what miracles and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles by them. 
Hbr 2:4 God also bearing [them] witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?

Some today believe that Biblically speaking, the “age of miracles” is past, or that God no longer affirms prophets, etc, via “signs following…” Specific to the End-Times though (since Prophet Yahweh’s main message relates to the final judgment; see below), “two witnesses” shall come working miracles of God before they are killed (Revelation 11:13-13 – some believe these witness/prophets are the church and Israel ; some believe they are two humans, perhaps Enoch and Elijah). But the “age of miracles” is at minimum our future – godly miracles included! So is the future here, and does PY speak for God since he can (sometimes) produce astounding results?

In pondering this, it is equally important to note that the Bible is replete with warnings that not all miracles, signs and wonders come from God. So again, determining the source of any miracle-worker’s power is of utmost importance, especially when they are calling you to make religious choices. The Bible teaches however that in the End-Times some shall display signs and wonders which are attributable to “false prophets” and/or the spirit of anti-Christ.

Rev 13:13 And he (2nd beast) doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

(…interesting, given this prophet’s penchant for Vegas-style showmanship…)

Rev 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

Rev 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, [which] go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Mat 24:24For 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.

Possible source of his alleged powers aside, for non-religious persons intrigued by Prophet Yahweh’s UFO appearances, I think you would like to be made aware of what else he believes about the UFOs he is summoning, and the God he is claiming to represent. In his own words (which he no longer makes publicly available, but were on the earliest versions of his website -start here courtesy www.archive.org)…


All the gods, of the earth, are idols that damns the souls of all who worship them.

And, all religions, on earth, are nothing but lies used by the devil to deceive souls.

All people who die, as worshippers of the gods, will be resurrected on “Judgement Day,”

tried, sentenced to eternal death, and cast alive into the lake of fire, where they will suffer forever!

This will happen to them because they worshipped the gods and not YAHWEH.

Within our life time, the most holy and wonderful YAHWEH

will send His Messiah, with His Angels, to destroy all the gods on earth. 

After all the gods and all their religions have been destroyed, our Messiah is going to re-establish the pure worship of YAHWEH, forever, on earth!

 

Pretty hellfire and brimstone, eh? I seriously think the UFO community might want to think twice before getting enthusiastic about this guy, especially if he continues to gain attention via successful UFO predictions. As someone who’s made a lifework of UFOs and Biblical Theology, I always welcome and invite orthodox Biblical scrutiny of my published views, but with that said, I’m telling you, this guy’s a religious whacko.

To Christians however, this portion of Prophet Yahweh’s old website actually might sound pretty agreeable though. Christian teachers might use the exact same words in fact, and you might wonder why a Christian author is taking time to knock this guy…


In short, I don’t believe PY’s mental version of “YAHWEH” or “Messiah” is the same one I serve, and from his other writings (below) PY states that his “YAHWEH” is actually opposed to “the God Jesus in Christianity” (not to mention the “Gods” of both Judaism and Islam). So just because someone preaches hell and damnation, Judgment Day, and the destruction of other gods, doesn’t make them a Christian. A confession of Jesus’ divinity and resurrection from the dead are the essential testimony of Christianity (Romans 10:9), not an attitude condescending of others’ beliefs!

One’s view of oneself is also quite telling at times. Whatever else PY teaches, according to his older website he seems to have more than a bit of the old Messiah complex. Again quoting from his original website, he states that he was personally “foretold of…”

Who Is Prophet Yahweh?

The Studies On This Page Prove That Prophet Yahweh Was Foretold Of
By The Most Merciful And Loving YAHWEH, by His holy prophets.

You can talk about God all you want, but knowing that we are but “unfruitful servants” is an essential component to the genuine godly service and humility afforded one by true religion. I.E., you can be Mother Theresa in your actions, but if you think you’re Mother Mary, then there’s a problem, okay? (I’m not Catholic – the analogy is purely illustrative.)

For example, it must be noted that Claude Vorilhon (aka “Rael”), leader of the Raelian Religion which (like Prophet Yahweh) also teaches that the Bible tells of UFOs, considers himself to be the current and last in a long “line of prophets” (including of course Moses, Buddha, and Jesus), all of whom were allegedly sent by our alien creators to teach mankind the next step in spiritual evolution. Rael is not known for miracles (he believes all miracles are science-based, thus his - as yet unproven – big “miracle / media stunt” was accomplished by announcing the first human clone), but Rael has approximately 40,000 followers and an undeniable knack for getting media attention. He too has been predicting the return of UFOs for many years – and is even now still attempting to build a “landing pad / embassy” for them in Jerusalem.

So whose UFOs in the Bible message should you believe – Rael’s or Prophet Yahweh’s? Because they can’t both be the current and “top dog” prophet of God, yet they use the Bible to prop up their belief in UFOs, and their role as God’s ultimate mouthpiece. Similarly, Marshall Applewhite, leader of the group known as Heaven’s Gate, led 39 people to their deaths by erroneously connecting UFOs to his version of Biblical interpretation, and convincing people that he was the current prophet of choice. Aren’t you glad he didn’t get media attention until after the group suicide, or perhaps you might have been one of his followers, if you’d followed his brand of UFO theology?

The only practical difference between Prophet Yahweh and the others mentioned so far, is that PY has got signs and wonders (or at least balloons) backing him up now. Keep in mind however, the above mentioned story from Acts 16, where the slave girl made accurate predictions – as Prophet Yahweh sometimes does – but she still had to have the demon cast out of her. I’m thinking this guy does too. This Prophet Yahweh says in the ABC news video “the voice in his head” told him to go public now…  While Christians certainly speak sometimes of “hearing from God,” or “following the Spirit’s direction,” this guy’s terminology is just a bit suspect if you ask me. Given the above End-Times scriptures, I must caution readers about the possibility of satanic power in his working of miracles, especially upon studying this “prophet’s” doctrinal beliefs, as they are clearly anti-Christ (in the generic sense of the term).

Different portions of the UFO community have followed these other “apostles, prophets, and teachers” in the past because they fell for these men’s sloppy interpretations of the Bible, but gave no heed to those who scrutinized their views from a sound theological perspective. I genuinely fear for those who will blindly follow this one. His current media attention will certainly gain him followers, as did Rael’s cloning claims. For that matter, Heaven’s Gate’s website is still up, and encourages readers to find their own “boarding pass” to leave earth via the website’s teachings – a thinly veiled invitation to suicide.

So while Prophet Yahweh is currently grabbing attention as the “Spaceships are God’s vehicles” poster boy… he is merely the most noticeable mediawise poster boy for this cause, today - and probably far from the last. He is following not in the line of Moses and Jesus, but in the line of Barry Downing, Marshall Applewhite, and Rael – only Prophet Yahweh’s boldly going places they never dreamt of.

A prophet he may be, but I say he is a false prophet. Whatever “voices” or entities are speaking to him, they are deceiving him, and leading him to deceive others. He is to be pitied, rebuked, and corrected, but not believed or followed, at risk of mortal, and I believe eternal, death.

Yours because His,
Guy Malone



 


Richard Bartholomew’s “expose” on Prophet Yahweh, mentioned above…
God Drives a Flying Saucer?

Certain segments of the internet are abuzz following the apparently successful effort by the leader of a New Religious Movement at summoning a UFO for the benefit of KNTV (Las Vegas) News reporter Mike Dello Stritto, at a daytime location of Stritto’s choosing. Video footage shows a distant disk appearing in the sky for a short time after African-American “Prophet Yahweh” offered up prayers (see here) He warns that spaceships are going to manifest clearly over Las Vegas between 1 June and 15 July. Prophet Yahweh claims to have been in contact with the UFOs since the late 1970s, and has a collection of home videos of previous sightings. These can be accessed from his website for a small fee; however, he considers them to be public domain, and this site has reposted them.

So who is Prophet Yahweh? WND identifies him as Ramon Watkins, but offers no biographical background. His website gives some rather unusual religious beliefs:

BE ADVISED! YAHWEH and His Angels are superhuman beings, on other planets who fly in spaceships!

However, this website has recently been revamped; the archived version at Wayback has more details about his religion:

All the gods, of the earth, are idols that damns the souls of all who worship them.
And, all religions, on earth, are nothing but lies used by the devil to deceive souls.
All people who die, as worshippers of the gods, will be resurrected on “Judgement Day,”
tried, sentenced to eternal death, and cast alive into the lake of fire, where they will suffer forever!
This will happen to them because they worshipped the gods and not YAHWEH. 
Within our life time, the most holy and wonderful YAHWEH
will send His Messiah, with His Angels, to destroy all the gods on earth. 
After all the gods and all their religions have been destroyed,
our Messiah is going to re-establish the pure worship of YAHWEH, forever, on earth!

Elsewhere on the old site:

Before we can attempt to understand if Prophet Yahweh is a true prophet of YAHWEH, who was foretold of by the prophets of Israel, we must, first, understand what Yahwean Prophethood is and how it differs from prophethood in Christianity, Islam, and other religions… Prophet Yahweh, fits within the definition of prophethood as revealed by the sacred “Y” document Hebrew writings of our nation.

A defunct “Table of Contents” tantalises with the following (sic for dodgy spelling):

YAHWEH’S UFOs And Spaceships In The Bible
YAHWEH Bible Study Lessons
The Luciferian Conspiracy Against YAHWEH
YAHWEH Verses The Gods El And Adon In Judaism
YAHWEH Verses The God Jesus In Christianity
YAHWEH Verses The God Allah In Islam

I suspect some sort of Black Hebrew Israelite connection, although none is made clear. Like Hebrew Israelite leader “Yahweh ben Yahweh“, Prophet Yahweh sometimes sports a turban with a badge on the front. I can’t read Yahweh ben Yahweh’s badge, but Watkins’s bears the Hebrew letter Yod, I suppose referring to the mysterious “Y” document. Possibly by the “Y document” Wakins means that part of the Torah designated by Biblical scholars as the “J” document, where God is referred to as “Yahweh” (this word used to be transliterated as “Jehovah”, hence “J”). His beliefs are not, however, completely coherent: on the one hand we are supposed to worship Yahweh, but on the other he warns the media that the aliens plan to invade:

Watkins says the aliens won’t attack us the way they do in the movies, but he says their intentions are anything but friendly. “And they’re here, to take over, it’s just that simple.”

Back on the revamped 2005 site, Watkins tells us a bit about he got the Prophet job:

…the appearance of sightings, on my signal, started by accident. At that time [1979], I was having a study with some of my bible students concerning spaceships and UFOs in the bible. As I was about to end the class, I felt compelled to go outside, with my students, and ask YAHWEH, in the exact same manner prophets in the bible summoned sightings, to send a UFO for us to see.

To our amazement, as soon as I finished praying for the sighting, a glowing UFO appeared before us and flew from one end of the sky to the other. We were were stunned at the miracle we saw and were left speechless!

…After I continued calling down sightings, like the prophets of the bible, and UFOs started appearing, almost without fail, I prayed to the magnificent YAHWEH and told Him that if He would use me to signal His spaceships and UFOs before the eyes of the world, I would live a life of poverty and be totally dedicated to Him.

Contributors to a discussion forum at New Age site Godlike Productions have been doing a bit more digging, and have discovered some interesting links. For example, it turns out that the Prophet is God’s lonely man, and he has a personal ad on Yahoo:

Where is My African-American Queen?
I’m a brother who is loyal and devoted to the African-American woman. I love her, need her, and can’t do without her!…She deserves a man (like me) who: believes in the Creator, prays daily, studies wisdom, seeks out understanding, and loves acquiring knowledge.

A version of the ad with different pictures can be seen here; he appears to have been in the navy in his youth. He’s listed as divorced with adult children…and with an income of “More than $150,000” (from “Entertainment / Media”), which seems not to tie-in with the “life of poverty”. Prophet Yahweh also owns a television production company (albeit with a website that doesn’t work properly) called Shiloh Broadcasting. And in a letter dated from 1997 to a UFO researcher he stresses the profit motive:

Because of how these UFO’s and spaceships are appearing before me and allowing me to film them, I’m destined to be a wealthy man in the very near future. Maybe we can make money together on my research.

In a second letter posted on the same site, he adds that the aliens had told him to head for Pershing Square in Los Angeles:

At that time, I’m to have as many people as possible there to verify if UFOs appear on my prayer or not.

That was also in 1997.

So what about the sighting that so impressed Stritto? Contributors to the discussion thread have a variety of suggestions: it’s all true; demons; government manipulation; Prophet Yahweh has stumbled onto some sort of alien technology he doesn’t understand. Sceptics have suggested model aircraft; a balloon; lasers; a special kind of concentrated light as used in German fun parks in the 1970s (see this page, scroll down to “Sean”); and pointed out that the footage was taken close to Nellis Air Force Base.

An unsuccessful attempt by Prophet Yahweh to summon a UFO can be seen here. He also failed to come up with goods promised for October 2000.
