Ramon Watkins (born 1952 or 1953), more famously known as Prophet Yahweh, or The Seer of Yahweh, (also once known as Joseph Noah Israel) is an American man who resides in Las Vegas, Nevada, and claims to have the ability to summon UFOs by using passages from the Bible. He says that he developed this ability after studying the Old Testament in its original Hebrew form and acquiring knowledge related to UFOs from his personal studies.
Prophet Yahweh was born Ramon Watkins in the Orange Mound Community in Memphis, Tennessee. He attended Melrose High School where he was a rising star in both football and basketball. After high school he briefly attended Tuskegee Institute on a basketball scholarship before accepting a football scholarship to Southern Illinois University where he joined the ministry. Prophet Yahweh's first radio ministry occurred in 1978 on WYZE, an Atlanta, Georgia, radio station. In 1981, he began his first cable television program at Viacom. Then in 1996, he began airing a UFO cable TV show in Los Angeles, California. After claiming to have had a dream instructing him to move to Las Vegas, he relocated and, in August 1999, began a cable TV show titled, Prophet Yahweh - Ufologist. Many of his self-proclaimed teachings can now be accessed online via YouTube and his official website.

Prophet Yahweh claims to be able to summon UFOs on command, and has submitted numerous YouTube videos which supposedly document such events. None of the UFOs summoned ever approach close enough to the camera to provide a clear and undisputed view. His claims inspire controversy and debate between those who assert that the images in these videos are genuine UFOs actually summoned by Prophet Yahweh and those who believe the events to be staged hoaxes.
