The Testimony of The Prophetic Scribe

This is the testimony of The Prophetic Scribe. This is a testament of what God will do, if you seek Him with all of your heart, obey His word, and respond to His call.


Arletia Mayfield was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. She began writing letters to God at the age of 7 out of frustration and a feeling of helplessness. This is how her personal relationship with Christ began.

Arletia is the daughter of a Pentecostal preacher who died for the faith. She grew up in the church, but like many “preacher kids (pk’s)”, she strayed as she got older, misusing her gifts for the world and not God. But, her church roots ran deep.

“Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” ~ Proverbs 22:6 ~

In 1997, The Lord called Arletia out of Beverly Hills, California where she was working for the Playboy Television empire, to the Mohave desert to a city known as, “Sin City”. It seemed like a lateral move. From one sinful place to another until the Lord revealed His plan to make her a minister. That made her laugh. There was so much the Lord would have to change about her to make her a minister. Nevertheless, she moved to Las Vegas, Nevada out of obedience to God. This is where God gave her a new name. He called her The Prophetic Scribe and then began to show her in His word, and through revelations and divine appointments what it meant.

The book, For the Love of God, was the turning point toward Arletia’s destiny and divine purpose in God. When God asked Arletia to compile her letters, poems and journal entries and assemble them into a book, she did. Then, she gave the book away to people in need of encouragement. Some people made donations, but many more were blessed by the gift, which was the true purpose for the book.

In the process of listening and obeying God, Arletia received instruction from God to “unlock” the stories hidden deep in the heart of His people (Revelation 12:11).
So, she began conducting workshops called The Prophetic Scribe Writer’s Forum where Christian writers gathered to discuss how to bring about healing and deliverance through the power of the Testimony of Christ as He works in and through the lives of believers.

God will not begin a good work and not complete it. One of the Writers Forum participants was motivated to start a publishing company and volunteered to publish the little handmade book, For the Love of God.

Members of the Writer’s Forum scheduled a road trip for the photo shoot in the Pacific Palisades beach area of the Pacific Coast Highway. The photo on the front cover of the book is an untouched photo of Arletia’s hand writing in the sand with a beam of light (the finger of God) writing in front of hers. It was the ultimate confirmation that she was God’s prophetic scribe selected by God to write what “thus saith the Lord”. When she saw the photo, she knew immediately that it was the cover for the book.

The Writers Forum began as a class, but quickly moved to the media when the Pastor purchased a radio station. One of the Writers Forum members even sponsored the show that led to friendship with a nationally recognized musician. This alliance led to the production of a CD of poetry and scripture to smooth jazz music by Larry White (Unsolicited Material album), who graciously offered permission to use His entire album for the purpose of spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.

After that, God made a divine appointment for Arletia to grow in her prophetic writing gift. She was introduced to Voices of Christ Literary Ministries International where she studied under the leadership of Prophetess Theresa Harvard-Johnson and received certification to teach The Scribal Anointing from the School of the Scribes.  She served as West Coast Director of this organization from 2006-2010.

The vision hasn’t changed, but has evolved and been refined. This happened when she separated herself from other ministries so she could hear clearly from God about the direction He wanted her to pursue. God promised her a holy husband, and she was ready to receive him.  She had been prepared by the master to be the perfect help mate for this particular man.  He was spirit-filled and owned a Global Christian Television Network called Together they promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world through media and God is expanding their territory.

This is the testimony of The Prophetic Scribe. This is a testament of what God will do, if you seek Him with all of your heart, obey His word, and respond to His call.

“A man’s gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men.” ~ Proverbs 18:16 ~
