Periscope Prayers

Saturday, December 7
Lord, we love You so much. And we love Your presence, God.
Lord, we want Your presence, God, to be in every thought, every attitude.
Lord, this is necessary.
Yes, stay, stay God! Let Your presence stay with us, God. God, I began to realize this about Your incredible presence: When it comes, You bring attention to Yourself in a way that is so unique. Your presence has a completeness in it. A finishing in it. When I feel Your presence the way I feel right now, I feel like everything is settled, everything is complete. Everything is finished, everything is done.
Lord, I love You, God. I love You, Jesus. Lord, I love You so much. When You come, Lord, You bring an intention. You settle things that need to be settled. And for a minute, our flesh wanders around trying to figure out what is occurring. Then suddenly, our minds open up and we say, “WOW! This is the presence of God.”
Maybe some of us that are praying right now are realizing that God is here. His presence is here.
This is Him.
This is Jesus. This is His visitation to mankind. And that’s what we seek for every day in prayer, Your visitation, God.
Lord, I know what it’s like, to be right here in the presence of the Lord. Every feeling, every emotion is settled and complete, Lord. We thank You for this, God.
Lord, it seems like our watches stop all the time to stand still. Because here is where healing happens. God, I feel You are healing people right now.
I sense Your desire that those pains, those aches, those annoying nuisances that come in our flesh ~ You want to remove them, God.
Lord, we don’t even have to say a word about these nuisances, these pains in our feet, in our legs, in our knees ~ In Jesus’ name they’re gone, they’re gone, they’re gone!
In our minds, in our heads, aches and pains in our back ~ are leaving our bodies right now, Lord, in the presence of God.
May we receive this. May we all believe this.
Believe that God is removing them…
And the doctor will confirm they are gone. Go to the doctor, show yourself. The Lord loves it when You do that.
God, please stay. We don’t want Your presence to go.
We desire the healing You are bringing to us right now. We receive the healing, Hallelujah!

A Cup Of Coffee

A few weeks ago, while at dinner with the prophet Timothy Snodgrass, he mentioned, “The Lord is going to give you and your family layers of unctions in the Spirit that you need to be very accurately obedient to, and this will continue in layers of time up until the next Christmas, 2020.” My family knew to take the words of the prophet very seriously, so in our daily prayer and in each situation, we have been listening for the Lord and how He wants us to respond to the needs that are presented to us.

Then, on a nothing-out-of-the-usual day, my daughter Rocki Starr received a text message from a cute lively Christian woman, who is a member of an influential Hollywood family: “A friend of mine is on a respirator, as he is dying from cancer. Please pray for him.” When Rocki told me about the text message I began to pray in the Spirit, and suddenly I saw a cup of coffee before me, and the Lord said, “When you drink a cup of coffee, he’ll be fine.” I told Rocki to give the message to the woman, and Rocki said, “Dad, I don’t know if I can text her that message. Will she understand?” So, Rocki gave me the lady’s phone number and I texted her this message:

“This is Pastor Richard Gazowsky, Rocki‘s father. I hope everything is going perfect for you, and I want to thank you for asking us to pray for your friend (name deleted). A little while ago I was praying for him, and I saw you drinking a cup of coffee. The Lord spoke to me and said, ‘When she does this her friend will be fine.’ May God bless you and richly value you with all of His goodness.”

She wrote us back a few days later and said, “Hello, Pastor Richard. Thank you so much for that. Thank you!! God bless you and your family. ❤️”

She then wrote a second time and said, ”Pastor Richard, question. I keep reading your text and I wanted to ask you for more clarification on what it means. Are you meaning literally drinking coffee, or more of drinking in a spiritual way? God is telling me one thing, but I wanted to see if you could give me clarification. Thank you. “

My family and I were driving to a remote location when we received her message, so I quickly responded and sent her this text message: “Just simply drink coffee.“ (But, the message did not go through because we lost cellular reception.)

The next week, as we were eating a Monday morning breakfast, Rocki received a series of texts from her friend:

“Rocki?” she began.
“Yes. How’s it going?” Rocki replied.
“Umm. It’s going good. I have an update. I am still in a bit of shock, so I’m just going to tell you what happened.” She continued, “My friend was on a ventilator for 6 days. His father wanted to bring him home so he could be with family. As they prepared him to place a trach, he started breathing on his own. He came off the vent for 2 days with a CPAP and went home. Yesterday his breathing became shallow and we all said our goodbyes. He passed away last night around 3 a.m.”

This news was tough to hear after we had been interceding for his recovery. Rocki began writing a message of encouragement to the woman, when we received another text message from her. The man’s body was taken to the morgue, and around 9 a.m. an intern noticed that the man’s body was twitching. Now we have heard that dead bodies have been known to twitch a little, but this was more than usual. They checked his body and he had a heartbeat! Stunningly, the man was brought back to the ICU! Our friend said that she was on her knees praising God!

This amazing round of events blew us away. It turned out that we were not very far away from her location, so we met up at a little local bistro/pizza shop, and the Lord told me, “Don’t forget the coffee.”

When we sat down with her at the table over a few personal-sized pizzas the glory of the Lord came so strong, as we discussed the miracle that had just happened. We all laughed and cried, and when we were finished eating, our friend mentioned that she received my text message, “Just simply drink coffee” that very morning at 9:23 a.m., before she texted Rocki the news regarding her friend! We spoke out in unison, “We gotta drink coffee! Get the waitress!” As we sat there waiting for the waitress to bring us our cups of coffee, an incredible thing happened ~ the lady received a text message from the father of her friend in the hospital.

Her friend was in an induced coma, and the father asked if she would call his son so he could put the phone up to his son’s ear. (By the way, the father of the man in the coma had never witnessed any such miracle and had never understood such things.) The waitress brought fresh-brewed coffee to our table, and with coffee in hand, our friend spoke a sweet message of hope to the man in the coma over the phone. We all couldn’t help but cry and praise the Lord for what He was doing ~ over a cup of coffee.

Understanding the plans of God, Part two

 
God not only operates on the big God-like level; He also works on the smallest personal level with problems you may think are imperceivable by others. In our family’s travels across the United States we have seen God do miracles in the most inconspicuous locations. These are life-changing to the people they happen to. 

 

Recently, my family went to take our clothes to be dry-cleaned, and I noticed that the woman behind the counter had tears in her eyes. I asked her what was wrong but she didn’t want to talk about it. When I told her that I was a pastor, she opened up and told me her daughter had been having a rough time. One of the doors in their house, which kept the dog from reaching the entire home, was left open when she got home. The living room couch pillows were torn and the wake of destruction was monumental. On top of that, there was an argument about who had left the door open.

 

I told her, “The Lord is going to give your daughter a job.” I let her know God was going to fix everything, fulfill all of her dreams, and how important communication with God is. 

 

When I went back to the cleaners to pick up our clothes a few days later, the lady was so happy to see me. She told me the first day she couldn’t talk about what I had said to her daughter. But on the second day, the lady told her daughter a man had come to her shop and said that she was going to get a job. Within two days, her daughter had found work and her whole demeanor had changed! We have since heard that her daughter is so happy and doing very well. The lady at the cleaners waved her hand towards the sky and said that her whole life had been opened to see that God was concerned about her family and their lives. She was now determined to talk to Jesus every day!

 

We are realizing God not only does miracles to change nations, but He also touches personal details in lives in the smallest of ways. One of the reasons we pray daily is because God is concerned about the littlest things concerning you.

Understanding the Plans of God, part one

We are living in a time when it is incredibly important for the godly people of America to pray. As Scripture says: 
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways, says the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.” 
The purpose of this Scripture is not to intimidate us, or to imply we cannot understand the way God does things. Instead, it encourages us to do the research, and then be content with His ways of accomplishing His plans.
As my family prays every day, we have met people who are also praying on their own, as prompted by the Holy Ghost. People all across our nation are praying, as I know all of you are doing as well. Recently God has had my family intercede: “Set the captives free.” So many people are bound by addictions, perversions, debts, and all manner of weights that torment the soul. A short time ago, Misty had this dream:
“I went into a warehouse with a friend. Inside were exhibits of the latest tennis shoes and clothes. People were given bands on their wrists signifying that they could rent the clothes and shoes. All of these different people were getting ‘high’ from renting, and when the rent got to a certain amount each person was given a ring on their finger. There was a 12-year-old who had five rings on his fingers, and he had gotten very high off of his purchases. However, each ring of debt would take away five years of his life! Because the things they were buying were giving them a high, I wanted to leave the warehouse as fast as I could!”

My family knew this dream was the Lord prompting us to pray for the weight of debt, which steals joy in life, to be removed in America. Recently, I watched the extended version of The Hobbit. There was a powerful scene where the Dwarf King’s father went to war with his archenemy, the Pale Orc. In the midst of defeat the father was carried away by his enemy, and held captive under a spell for generations to protect the very enemy that stole his life. Eventually, Gandalf comes and sets him free, so that before he dies, he is able to give a message of love to his son. After watching this scene we went to pray for the many who are bound with suffering to be set totally free.  

Jesus is the only One who can really set us free. He is the power that breaks every weighty chain. The way He sets the captives free is past finding out. One person’s experience may be completely different from another’s. But that is the beauty of the Lord. His love and understanding is customized to each one of us. The Lord said in Luke 4:18-19 (from the Amplified Bible),
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me (the Messiah),
Because He has anointed Me to preach the good news to the poor.
He has sent Me to announce release (pardon, forgiveness) to the captives,
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set free those who are oppressed (downtrodden, bruised, crushed by tragedy),
To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord [the day when salvation and the favor of God abound greatly].”
This is what God wants to do in America right now! I want to ask all of you to join my family in praying to “Set The Captives Free!” There is power in the Spirit when we agree together. I believe in our unity before the Lord, He will pour out His Spirit upon our young and old, and we will see the broken and lost completely healed and restored!

Is it Possible for Everything to be Perfect?

Yes! And now let me explain to you why. Matthew 5:48 says, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” When I first read the Scripture years ago, I thought it was completely impossible that I could ever reach perfection. But then I found out that many other people were also seeking perfection.

Most of the very wealthy people who I met were also obsessed with perfection. They sought perfection in everything from their cars, to their homes, and even in their families. A few years ago, when I first met actual billionaires, they noticed my family, and how closely knit we worked together as best friends. Every time we met, they were amazed by this treasure of love. Some said they felt I was the wealthiest man in the world, which had nothing to do with my finances.

In 2011, when I was traveling to Los Angeles to work on the projects our church was involved in, the Lord spoke to me and said, “Richard, you’ve got to get your family together. It is the secret to everything.” Just God mentioning the importance of my family caused me to study my own family, and I realized we were not as together as I thought. This caused Sandy and I to go into deep intercession, and finally we both realized that we needed to completely turn our children over to the Lord and do these three things:

1. Turn over the correction, instruction, and leadership of our children to the Holy Spirit. We would do this by physically praying every day about anything that our kids were facing and promised God that we would not try to fix it, but we would allow the Holy Spirit to do whatever was necessary.

2. Both Sandy and I committed to speak only lovingly and graciously, without conflict in our conversations. This is exactly the way the Bible teaches us to speak to each other. (This I must admit is still a work in progress.)

3. Jesus instructed us, as leaders, that we must be servants. This last one comes to a point that I had to deal with as the father, or head of the household. I had to learn to serve my children, along with receiving God’s personal confirmation for them when they needed it. This is not as easy as it might seem, but it is definitely an important key into bringing the family into the unity that the Father wants – which is perfection.

Visions of the Eagles

Many have asked, “Where are Pastor Richard and his family?” About three years ago, God called our family on a special mission to pray for America and the world. I saw a vision (over a three-day period) of the world covered with a complete tsunami wave of love. I realized God was ready to pour out His love upon the earth ~ similar to the “Cover the Earth” logo of the Sherwin-Williams paint company in downtown San Francisco.
About three months after I received a confirmation, I was in the home of a man of God, Ralph Wilkerson. He’d had a vision of the Sherwin-Williams sign in downtown San Francisco, and he had been praying for over 50 years that the love of God would cover the earth like it showed in that sign. I felt God confirming the purpose of our family’s mission. After pastoring in San Francisco for nearly 40 years, the Lord showed me the city was ready for a change.
Next, the Lord made an agreement with me. The Lord said, “Do not pray about your own situation, but instead pray for America and God’s concern for the world.” I also remembered that God had told me, “You know I am classy. I will take care of everything so do absolutely nothing.” Well, that’s the short story about why my family is praying for America and the world every day on Periscope. I wish to thank all of you for joining us every day during that prayer. Simply download the Periscope app on your phone, type in my name, Richard Gazowsky, and you will get the daily prayer meeting.
Many of you, praying with me daily, have asked about the visions and dreams that my family have been experiencing, so now I want to share with you a series of visions and dreams about the eagles:
A few weeks ago at 4 AM in the morning I was praying to the Lord in my mind, not making a sound, because I didn’t want to wake anybody up. I suddenly saw a corridor going through the ceiling of the hotel room that seemed to be an opening to heaven. Immediately I noticed that there were two eagles standing in the room at the end of my bed. The eagles looked dignified, though their bodies were completely in the shadows. I did not know what this meant, only that it was a vision from the Lord.
Later that day, as I was praying on Periscope, I saw a vision of an eagle flying near my car, and then flying away towards Europe. When the eagle came to Europe, he flew inside a large office building, broke through the plate glass window, and flew down a corridor. He grabbed a young man in the back with his talons, then pulled him out of the building. As the young man turned his face toward me, he looked awake, but he seemed asleep emotionally.
When I looked closer at his face, I recognized who the young man was, but I knew I could not share it because he was a very public figure. At that moment in prayer I understood that the Lord would send His heavenly angelic creatures to collect tares that have been sown among the wheat. I also knew that on Periscope, I should pray and tell the great cloud of witnesses. We who are on earth agreed with Heaven’s will. We prayed that Heaven’s will is done on earth as it is being done in heaven.
Last Sunday my daughter Misty had this vision of God’s eagles:
“It was so hot in my room that I woke up at 4 AM and I had a vision. I saw shadows that were demons flying past me, and I said, ‘What is going on?’ Then I saw a massive black eagle, with bright, yellow wing-tip feathers in my room. The strong black eagle snatched up the demons with it’s mighty talons and threw them into the Lake of Fire. Then I saw a massive white eagle, which had snow clusters nestled between the feathers of its wings.
“When the white eagle screamed, fire came out of its mouth, but when it reached its highest pitch, the sound turned bright white and every demon evaporated. I went to thank the eagles, and nuzzled my head on the chests of the black-and-yellow eagle and the white eagle. The black eagle then took me on his wings to see the Lake of Fire.
“With its talons, the black eagle put me on the white eagle’s back, and the white eagle flew me to the highest mountain (which had lots of snow) and showed me a massive volcano. Jesus appeared on the snowy mountaintop and gave the black-and-yellow eagle an olive-tree branch, and it flew to the east. Jesus also gave an olive-tree branch to the white eagle and it flew to the north. Jesus then gave me a branch with cherry tomatoes (because he knows that I love cherry tomatoes).”
Let me explain why these visions are so important to our family, in our prayer life that occurs in the morning, and also on Periscope. On Periscope, we only pray pure “milk” prayers and I try to stay clear of controversial issues. But in our other prayer times, we focus on spiritual issues and events that we see in the news, and agree with Heaven as we see Heaven’s will being done on earth.
The details of these private prayers may one day be able to be shared with everyone publicly, or may never be shared. That is all up to Heaven. But I think it shows how accurate prayer is, and how important it is to the daily events that are occurring around us ~ nationally, internationally, and even locally in our own homes. To God be all the glory!
God bless you! See you soon on Periscope.

A Dream About How To Receive Great Wealth

I woke up this morning from an incredible dream I want to share with each one of you, especially since Alexis Orth (one of the editors of this blog) asked me to write a blog about a subject that happened to concern the very dream I just woke up from!
The dream:
I was working out in a very sophisticated gym that was located in our newly-remodeled church at 1970 Ocean Ave. On the exercise machine next to me was a young girl about the age of my daughters, who was dressed in the latest, coolest workout outfit made by one of the great design houses in Italy.
As we both finished exercising and were taking a moment to rest, she asked, “Pastor, how do I receive great wealth in order to do the things that God has called me to do? You and your family are traveling around, and you have the money to stay in different hotels every night, travel, and eat at restaurants. So how does that happen?” I looked at her young face and I realized she was asking this in all honesty. She really wanted to know how to receive money to accomplish what she needed to do for God.
But before I could reply she continued, “I know that the money should come from Christians, but what Christians should I ask for money, and how should I ask?” There were assumptions she was making that I first needed to address before I answered her original question.
I replied straightforwardly, “You should never look to Christians as the means for making money. If you do, you will be blocking out over 75% of the sources of money God wants to bless you with. Remember, “‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts.” God is speaking and telling you that all sources of money belong to Him, and He can turn the heart of the hardest king. This is very important, because you have much to do with how God gives you money.
If you believe that finances can only come from a Christian source, you limit the actions God might choose. The largest source of money I ever received came from a secular government. It had to do with a hospital bill in Europe amounting to millions of euros ~ which we had incurred when my daughter Misty died and then came back to life. God is God. If He gave you the dreams, He will also provide the funding. You just don’t know how God will supply your needs.”
In my dream, I could see she was dressed appropriately for the gym environment, so she already understood the importance of properly presenting herself in public. Next, I wanted to answer her question about how she should ask. I replied, “How to ask depends on who you ask, which leads to your first comment, which was about Christians providing you with money. You told me you’re asking this question because of how my family and I have been supplied daily by the Lord. It’s hard to even comprehend how such a thing could actually happen when every day becomes a miracle.
It has not been people, but God and Him alone. Wealthy Christians are very protective over their wealth ~ not in a negative way, but in a holy way. They will only touch their money if God speaks to them. By this I mean God Himself, not representatives on earth who think they hear the voice of God. If they are truly wealthy they will know how to listen to the voice of God coming from their tummy. Clever people who think they can trick wealthy people into giving them money are just fooling themselves and they will soon get weary of asking.
True Christians have gone through a long process of receiving help from God, and so have learned to discern the voice of God. That’s why they will only use their money for what He has spoken for them to do. The closer you get to God in the process of fulfilling your dreams and visions, the more you will begin to respect other people’s wealth. You will find yourself refusing to touch wealth that doesn’t belong to you. This is a sacred trust that God wishes to establish with everyone.”
I continued, “I have seen great Christians be tricked by the enemy and lose their wealth because they quit listening to that voice in their tummy. It has greatly troubled me and I have found the answer in this simple truth: Samson did not know that the Lord had departed from him. He thought he would shake himself free from his attackers and be strong, but instead he was as weak as any other man, and the Philistines made him a slave.
Samson became the “superman” of the Old Testament whenever he felt the presence of God. But God left him when he disobeyed God by letting his hair be cut, and he did not know God was gone. God is great and powerful, but He also has the ability to leave someone without them even knowing it.
Wow! Wealth can cause someone to trust in it and to start thinking their foundation and security is found in the wealth. But this does not have to be true. Just as you need to ask God for wealth, it is your continued relationship with God that allows you to keep everything concerning wealth. If you are discerning daily, you will always be pointed to the power of your personal relationship with God Himself.”
The young woman said, “But pastor, the dreams and visions that God gave me were so real! How do I know for sure that God will supply the riches that I need? Isn’t He expecting me to go out and cleverly devise a way to get this wealth?” The young woman was very articulate, witty, and fully capable of coming up with a very clever business plan at the spur of the moment. The truth of trusting in God operates at a completely different level.

I replied to her, “I can tell you are very sharp, but that’s not why God chose to give you those dreams. There’s an element that He sees in you that you probably are not aware of. And that is, God knows you are able to believe even when there is nothing around you physically to support it ~ not family, not friends, not position, nor wealth: just Jesus. This is why He has chosen you, because you are pure.
“If you choose to trust Him completely, you are exactly what He is looking for ~ someone who will just trust Him and His voice that you hear on the inside. And the key to all of this is you personally developing a good relationship with patience: she is beautiful, she is wonderful, and she is very entertaining. So let her be your best friend.”

I knew our conversation was coming to an end so I concluded, “God is going to give you great treasures of wealth every day ~ first as thoughts, then as conversations you will have with important people. These treasures are the words you speak. Speak them with strength. As you do this with others, you will find your life rising to their same level.”

I then woke up very quickly and sat up in bed.

Your Faith is the Glue that holds it all Together

As I was thoughtfully preparing to write this blog, I was sitting at the front of a Target store in a little cafeteria area.  I saw a vision throughout the store that I will try to describe in detail. This vision started many years ago when I was staying with my family at a luxury penthouse in downtown Baghdad. Our immense expenses were covered by benefactors whose identities were not revealed to us. So we weren’t even sure who to thank.

In the midst of this long and expensive luxury stay, I dreamed I was standing in a river of money that went up to my chest, and it was flowing so greatly I realized that the money was mine to access at will. Over the years that vision has occurred to me more frequently, except in these recent times. It was something that I could see visually as a shadow of something that was occurring. The river of money was God‘s provision for me and my family, to accomplish anything God was asking us to do at the time.

Years ago in Los Angeles, after having prayed on the beach by the LAX Airport, I again saw this vision of the river of money. The next day our family was told by the Lord to fly to Iceland. I was well aware that this trip could be very expensive, but as we traveled around Iceland and Europe God provided every single need that we had. This included my daughter Misty’s stay in a hospital in Rome for three months. The provision of God at this time was astronomical, but it truly was verifiable proof that being in the center of God’s will is being in the center of heaven’s river of provision and multiplication!

It appears that every moment I am starting to prepare to face decisions God will show me a glimpse of the shadow of the river of money. It is wise to stay in the perfect will of God, for it is a fulfillment of the Scripture that says, “But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” The more we pray and stay daily closer to Jesus, the more we see that His provision is ever accessible.

Faith is the glue that makes these shadows, visions, and dreams stick. They are maps and guides for our daily decisions in life. Abraham believed the visions and dreams that God gave him about his future and his son Isaac; so much so, that when God asked him to sacrifice his son upon the altar Abraham believed that even if he did kill his own son, God would raise his body from the dead. Abraham’s faith was the glue that held his entire life story together. Wow! That is such a high level of glue that it should be called supersonic glue!

In modern technology, glue has become so important as a bonding agent. One type can actually turn cloth into a surface that is stronger than steel called carbon fiber. Let’s look at carbon fiber and see how it compares to the glue of faith which holds your life together. Here is a picture of how powerful a faith-based life is.

The cloth of carbon fiber is like a word given to you personally form God.  He speaks to you in dreams and visions. Faith is the epoxy glue that is put upon the word of God and mixed with it.  We then allow this epoxy-faith to set, and it becomes an immovable structural foundation for our future. This is the foundation upon which Abraham lived on. We must take the word of God that was given to us personally, and infuse it with the glue of faith.

God is going to give us back our church on 1970 Ocean Avenue. The cartoon movie “Sing” is the “cloth”, the word of God creating the picture of our future.  When we mix it with the epoxy glue of faith, in the end it becomes rock-solid. And, no matter what doubtful attacks the enemy slams against it, the truth remains that this is the destiny of our church, “A Place To Meet Jesus”, and it’s future in San Francisco!

The Mystery of Words

Many times we do not realize how powerful the words coming out of our mouths are. Words carry a lot of invisible packages in their delivery. Paul commented upon this when he said in Hebrews the third chapter, the word of God did not profit them, “because they didn’t receive the promises with faith.” One reason the Israelites had to wander for 40 years in the wilderness was because the promises made to them were not mixed with the packages of faith to those that heard them. The words that Moses spoke were not carrying the packages of faith in them, so the people could unwrap those words and release faith in their hearts to receive the miracles that God was providing for them. Paul said in Hebrews he doesn’t want that to happen to us. I don’t want this to happen to the church either!
The words that you speak must carry packages of life and faith. Or as Jesus described in Matthew 7 (from the Message Bible), “These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock. Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the rock. But if you just use My words in Bible studies and don’t work them into your life, you are like a stupid carpenter who built his house on the sandy beach. When a storm rolled in and the waves came up, it collapsed like a house of cards.”
The power of your words is measured by the spirit and life that is in your words. You can say, “I love you,” but be in the spirit of disgust or anger. Although your words speak love, the spirit behind them is death.
The center of the accompanying package attached to each word you speak to someone is generated by the thoughts and intents of your heart. Remember that Paul said the Word of God is sharp, and is a “discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
The Word of God cleanses your thoughts and intentions. The invisible packages that accompany all of your words to your family, fellow workers, and even your soul mate can be communications filled with love, joy, peace, and good intentions. This is the mystery of our words in the power of communication. It is a power you use daily. Believe me, we should treat it as our most valuable gift.

A Rolls-Royce Revival

There is a change occurring. You can taste it in the water, smell it in the air, and feel it in the rumbling earthquakes beneath the surface of California. It is God‘s perfect plan coming to pass! This change came into focus while I was at the Rolls-Royce dealership. Sometimes God chooses a method to speak to you that clarifies His intentions in a way you can no longer deny. A few days ago when I was traveling down the street with my wonderful bride Sandy, the Lord spoke to me and said, “Drive into the Rolls-Royce dealership and look at a new car.”
This did not appear to be an unusual request from the Lord. Over the last six months I have had two dreams where I was either driving or riding in a brand-new car to do a task for the Lord. My mother, Pastor Marilynn Gazowsky, who founded our church in San Francisco, also owned a Rolls-Royce for over 20 years. I was very familiar with the car and it’s reputation. I realized God wanted me to learn something that I could not quite comprehend at the moment.
At the dealership Sandy and I were greeted as if we were lost friends coming home, though we had never been at this dealership before, it felt nice to be welcomed so warmly and offered a cool drink, as it was a very hot day.
I first must mention to you that never once was money suggested, inferred, or brought up by the salesman, who was indeed a gentleman. He was only concerned about what our needs as a family were, and how their car could meet those needs.
I must say this was a totally unexpected and pleasant surprise, and reminded me of my experience with my daughter when she was brought back to life in an Italian hospital. Afterward, she spent three months in intensive care, yet God completely took care of the multi-million dollar bill! With God money is never the issue. His will is all that matters. Now back to the Rolls-Royce dealer…
After hearing about how our family is traveling, the gentleman immediately said, “You need to look at the new SUV Rolls-Royce family car.” At first, I was shocked to hear that Rolls-Royce even made a family car. It was utterly immaculate, pure glistening white, with little tiny hints of high quality that were undeniable. Even the telltale angelic emblem on the front of the car could easily disappear upon command (I assume so you could park among other cars and not make them feel intimidated by your car’s presence.
But when I opened the door, my senses fully came to life. I knew from experience that Rolls-Royce raised special cattle to produce the leather that was used exclusively in their seats ~ but this had been taken to a totally new level! The care and flawless leather surfaces were stitched and woven to such perfection and design that they fit the seats like a garment of the most fashionable couture.
I could literally spend at least an hour talking about the refinement of this automobile. And to think this refinement was not for speed, not for luxury ~ but for family convenience! This was especially emphasized when the gentleman explained to me, “We also offer an additional two seats, beyond the four seats in the main cabin, that are designed for young children only ~ not small adults, just children.” The way he emphasized children stuck with me because, knowing Rolls-Royce’s interest in precise refinements, he was letting me know this is a family car only!
Suddenly God spoke to me and said, “Do you see My plan for the earth?” I had to stand back and think for a few days about this unseen observation that God was referring to. Then, while I was praying on Periscope, I saw it. God is calling the godly families of the earth to unprecedented luxury and peace and to have heaven on earth even as they drive their cars. Wow! This is the Lord’s Prayer being answered by a luxury car company! For He has called us who are godly “to be the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath.”
I know it is a shock to many of you to hear the Lord‘s will being talked about in such a manner. But when God blesses you, He blesses you beyond all religious, governmental, and physical hindrances. God makes all things possible! It is time for you to enter into your true dreams, given by God. Be careful, because God’s dream may shatter hindrances that you have been protecting your whole life. Pray about this.
Sent in love,
Pastor Richard Gazowsky
