Our Daily Goal Should Be His Presence

The premise that I wish for you to consider is that the Scripture tells us, “Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” If our body is the temple, then the temple is complete when the presence of God is in us. Because of this I have discovered that every day when I wake up in the morning I seek the presence of God to enter into my body, which is His temple, and I begin the day in perfect alignment with God‘s purpose in me.

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”

How important is perfection? What is God’s view of perfection? This is not man’s view of perfection. God‘s view of perfection is much more complex because it not only deals with being perfect in obedience and fulfillment, but in our attitude and intentions at the moment we encounter specific situations. All of this is covered by our innocence in our obedience.

Another way of looking at this is as a father who looks at his beloved son, and sees in his son a complete reflection of himself. As the father is perfect, his reflection results in the father realizing that his son is perfect. This is how God looks upon us each and every day. Our own obedience to His voice is what leads to His pleasure at our perfection.

I have realized over the years when God’s presence enters into His temple, it is a sign that He is pleased with our level of perfection. As our own obedience draws His presence, so His glory shows up in us. This is how to experience heaven on earth, and why our daily goal should be His presence.

The true treasure chest of experience you can open each and every morning is in the wee hours of dawn when you find yourself awake but you haven’t yet opened your eyes. As you lay in bed, try to remember the dreams regarding the things that God spoke to you in the night. Rehearse them in your mind even before you open your eyes, and mull over the details. Many times you’ll find that as you think about the details, you will see even deeper into the experience God gave you in your dreams.

As you fully awaken, take the time to write down what you have just seen. With today’s modern technology you can literally speak it into your phone, which will then type it all out for you. Whatever method you use, make sure you make a record of it. This becomes a treasure ~ and might even be a map to the treasures that God has waiting for you in your life experiences!

Next, take time to pray about your dream and ask God questions about anything that you don’t understand: “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men liberally, and upbraideth not.” You will be amazed at how patient and kind God is with the wisdom He shares with you!

Under the Surgeon’s Scalpel of God’s Word

At first read, the title of this blog may appear to be dangerous to many. However, when you begin to understand the delicate ways of God and how He uses His intricate methods of communication with us, this thought can become warm and friendly. Let me try to explain.

 

God’s communication is always done without condemnation. This is a strong statement in the Word of God about God’s character: “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” God‘s character is revealed in close communication with Him. You find out He is very kind and gentle in His way of speaking. His gentle use of pictures in characterizations, dreams, and statements to us never directly put us in conflict with His will. Instead, they give us a choice to either reject or accept His will.

 

Have you ever met a person of power that would be this delicate in his communication ~ especially with someone as low and as weak as we can be? In my daily prayer as I listen to His voice, I realize He is truly a loving Father that loves us so much that He wants us to have the freedom of choice in every decision. 

 

But at the same time He realizes that we do not have the intellectual sophistication to make the appropriate choices. So He gives us dreams that reveal the potential pain (a picture of how important the situation’s decision is), and leaves it to us to follow the route that He is suggesting. Through dreams, words, visions, and more, He reveals His will to us.

 

We are obviously in a very critical transitional time, when most of us are currently moving up from our past level to the new higher level that God is bringing us to. In this transition, there is a flood of downloads God gives to assist us in making the right and appropriate decisions to follow His perfect will. 

 

God’s words are very very important, but they are also so sharp that they are capable of cutting off bad decisions without making us even feel the pain! You are spiritually living today on an operating table with the most skilled Surgeon above you ~ cleansing, cleaning, and fixing every aspect of your human existence. Wow! What an incredibly beautiful time to be alive!

Prophetic Word Fulfillment Update

Over the last week we have realized this prophecy given by the prophet Timothy Snodgrass is reaching its time of fulfillment. The time is now! He mentions God will speed up your promotion and God is moving you into a new movement. This is the movement of your life coming into a new existence, causing everything to change. Even when you are at the bottom, the top thing which you did not like, you will suddenly love. If you dress every day in casual clothes that look roughed up and worn you may be comfortable. Then you look at those who are dressed like they are walking the red carpet, and they make you feel uncomfortable. But suddenly in the new movement, you’re walking the red carpet yourself! You can not only be comfortable with the uncomfortable, but you can laugh and enjoy every delicate, perfect, classy thing God is doing.

Now the prophecy:
A word from Brother Timothy 9/11/2015
No more delay, it’s time to move into acceleration
You’re getting ready to move into the major leagues
Stand in faith because you’re about to move into a new movement
There is a time God has set aside for your acceleration
God is giving you a complete skin makeover
The change of the appearance is a sign of Solomon’s wealth that is coming to you
There is new wealth and health coming to you
The anointing to build homes homes homes homes homes homes homes homes homes
You will buy homes you will give homes you will sell homes you will buy property
God is giving you a mansion anointing
When God says go, He can get you there
Simple patents simple downloads simple revelation
God is accelerating your thought process
You’re not going to stay at your old home, the old is passing away
You will go from your new home to London back to your home in California
Scotland, London, England, Eastern Europe, Europe
Multiplication of finances
A celebration is coming of the moving into your new life out of the old life
Ridiculous celebration, ridiculous joy is about to be released in your family
You’re getting ready to break into mansions
You will have mansions in many nations
The wealth of Solomon is coming to you
God is getting rid of every age related infirmity
Every day you are getting younger

God’s Plan for Heaven on Earth

How you wake up each morning is so vital to how much of heaven you will have on earth each day. For me, the best way to begin each day is with prayer based on the pattern of the Lord’s Prayer. Begin by honoring the Lord. Agree with God‘s master plan. You find the key to this salutation in the words, “Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in Heaven”. Here, we agree with His plan for America, for the earth, and for our lives.

Prayer is more than just repeating phrases. It must become an intercession of the heart, and a communication that goes down to the root elements inside our being. It is a consistent process of listening and obeying every word God speaks, be it in words, dreams, visions or any other whisper from His divine voice. Each day, God’s communication separates fleshly thoughts and intents of the heart by simply obeying what He tells you to do. Obedience results in a little more of Heaven each day.

This process must be done daily. Which is why we pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.” Eating is one key to obtaining a perfect body in perfect health. This one aspect of your prayer session can literally transform your physical body as described in The Bible when it says, “Moses was 120 years old when he died. His eyesight was sharp; he still walked with a spring in his step.” Paul says in Romans, “Those who think they can do it on their own end up obsessed with measuring their own moral muscle but never get around to exercising it in real life. Those who trust God’s action in them find that God’s Spirit is in them—living and breathing God! Obsession with self in these matters is a dead end; attention to God leads us out into the open, into a spacious, free life. Focusing on the self is the opposite of focusing on God. Anyone completely absorbed in self ignores God, ends up thinking more about self than God. That person ignores who God is and what he is doing. And God isn’t pleased at being ignored.” This is heaven on earth in our physical health.

God wants us to have heaven in our personal relationships with the people around us, “And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.” As I interact with my family, how can I truly show them through words and actions how much I appreciate them and the debt of love that I owe them? Sometimes this part of my daily intercession can literally take hours. I wait in meditation concerning each person until God speaks and His words cut off any bad part of my interaction with them. Make each relationship with each family member heaven on earth. You can tell that each aspect of the Lord’s Prayer is really detailed. Each aspect of this daily prayer requires intercession; most of my own intersession is done through speaking in tongues.

In the pathway of thoughts and actions that we will journey today, “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:”. If you have been praying with us on our daily intercession on Periscope you will have noticed many times we ask God to direct our thoughts. We need God’s help in our thinking. The Bible actually encourages us, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.” The direction of our daily thoughts should always be in humility as a servant to serve every person we meet, as well as our family members. When you become a true servant to your family, you will not even rise up in anger in a conversation to defend yourself or to convince them of your opinion. This is a hard position to take, but it truly leads to Heaven on earth for every person in your family, for your actions will deliver you from evil.

When your intercession accomplishes a realization of these aspects of the Lord’s Prayer in your daily life, you will spend your day declaring, “For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”

See you in prayer!

Let The Rain Do Its Work

One of the most beautiful things I have ever experienced is the spiritual washing by the Word of God. What I am describing is a very complex spiritual activity which heaven offers to those who embrace the wind of the Spirit daily. How can you embrace that which is unembraceable?

God’s power may appear to be an illusion but it’s actually a reality. It’s the rock that everything we depend on is built upon. As John said with such clarity, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” To truly understand what John is saying here, we must realize he is not speaking in a spiritual metaphor or for poetic entertainment. He is actually speaking a straightforward truth.

Words from the mouth of God are building blocks for all human action. Our belief in the truth of these words is the mortar that binds them together and eventually leads to the construction of skyscrapers of success. Let’s look at the fine aspects of the Word of God, particularly at one idea I’ll call the “rain” of the word of God.

The finesse experienced in words from God can sometimes only be seen in daily prayer and observation of God’s ways. The message Bible puts it this way, “His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense.” The pinpoint accuracy of God’s word in us can remove the slightest emotion or intent of the flesh that can cause so many problems during the day.  I find it extremely valuable to allow the rain of God’s word to come upon us from the top of our heads to the soles of our feet. It cleanses every detail of our human condition. The way His word does its work in us is very simple: when you obey exactly what the Lord tells you to do, that action washes away the ugly part of sin and corruption that is in you. Evil in you can be removed as easily as a breath of air blows a feather away.

Now comes the hard part: The Apostle Paul mentions a difficulty of discernment when he says, “But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” This simply means that you recognize the voice of God when he speaks in you and you obey that voice alone.

The key to this last verse is the statement, “by reason of use“. Let me give you an example. My son told me one reason The Golden State Warriors are one of the best basketball teams in the NBA is because they physically shoot more baskets than anyone else in the league every single day. One of their players shoots around 2,000 shots a week. He shoots a minimum of 250 every day, plus another 100 before every game. It’s by “reason of use”.

The same principle occurs in the spiritual realm. Listen daily for God’s voice through dreams, visions, through whispers of words, and also the reading of the Bible. The word of God in your life will rain on you and begin to cleanse you and purify you making you perfect for the Master to use.

Things You Can Never Unsee

Certain revelations are so eye opening and so revealing that they change the very core of your thinking. The first time I ever saw a person’s core way of thinking completely change, I was traveling across the United States with a Russian immigrant who had just escaped from the Iron Curtain. He knew I was a pastor’s son and was familiar with our church.
We had been asked to help him assimilate into the United States, so he had joined me in my journey across America to pick up some equipment for the church. After two days of travel we stopped at a McDonald’s restaurant and I bowed my head to pray for the meal. He looked at me and laughed, “Richard, why go through the ritual of praying? Nobody here is watching from the church, and there are no government cameras that are looking down upon you. So why bother to go through the action of praying?”
I suddenly realized that this young man did not believe in God. His “God” was the totalitarian government because they had been watching and spying on him all the time. I then took a long time and explained to him that I prayed to remind myself that the machines inside of McDonald’s did not create the burger I was eating. It had come from a cow miles away where a farmer fed him, and the ability for that cow to grow came from God. I wanted God to know how thankful I was for creating that cow and providing the meat for my hamburger.
After days of explaining to him how God was in the heart of many Americans, suddenly I saw his eyes open. He understood God was the One watching over America and not the government. He saw that God has given us the freedom that we enjoy. Once his eyes were opened to this basic truth, he could never “unsee” it again. The core of fear that had been birthed in him since he was a little boy was completely broken and Jesus had set him free. This kind of change in thinking comes from the Scripture that says, “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” When Jesus opens your eyes it changes everything!
I am writing this blog because many of you are on the verge of a great promotion. When God promotes you, His promotion is so complete it changes everything that you used to rely on. Even your traditional way of thinking is suddenly brand new. The whole world changes, and what used to be impossible, where you never would have even considered the luxury of such thinking, now becomes normal activity.
I once knew a man who was responsible for many monthly payments, requirements, and stressful transactions in his business. He would wait for the proper financial reprieve and it would relieve him, until the next series of payments due came into his corporate office. One day something changed, but it had nothing to do with his physical or financial position. The change came in his core way of thinking. The change was so complete that it brought youthfulness to his face and a spring in his step. It even removed pain from his body and anguish from his mind!
The most critical change was that empty feeling he would experience every time he faced a bill he had to pay was gone. The worry of whether the right amount of money would come in to pay the bill had left him. The change in this man came from a word from God. He had been given a word that he fully embraced, and the word became a foundation for every thought he had. The transformation was so complete in his thinking that he could not “unsee” the revelation of that word. It became such a rock of foundation that everyone around him began to be influenced by his thoughts and actions.
This is the power of the word of God. It is the foundation that this planet is built upon. Of course each one of us could say, “Oh! That would be so nice if it was that simple!” What’s amazing is that it is very, very simple. Eye-opening revelations can completely change your core way of thinking and can happen as quietly as a whisper. This change is so internally transforming it’s as if you lived in a pauper‘s house and suddenly you feel at home in the palace of a king. Every person in the Bible that became a front-page story of faith went through this transformation. It’s not something I can predict or foretell, but it is something that I am positive is going to happen to every one of you that are connected in the Spirit to our church, A Place To Meet Jesus.
There is something rumbling in the spiritual realm. Open your eyes to see the tsunami wave of His glory as it raises the level of the ocean. It is going to happen to each one of you in a unique way. My message to you today is to expect it, embrace it, and receive it! It’s from God and it’s by God. He’s your Father, it’s completely safe, and it will bless you and the generations that follow you for many years to come!

His Favor Is Life

One of the most important aspects of prayer is to enter into a dimension of God‘s presence that can stay with you each and every day of your life. This phenomenon occurs to every person at the moment of his or her salvation. But if you’re not careful, as time and life’s circumstances go by, a wedge can be worked in between you and God’s presence by the enemy. Most people describe this as a feeling of emptiness. The true feeling that you are missing is the feeling of God’s favor.
Favor is powered by God’s love for you; the more it is experienced and is given away to others, the more this powerful favor flows through you. One goal of every Christian should be to constantly increase their own personal power of letting the presence of God‘s love flow through them into others. The reward from this activity are immeasurably beyond your expectations. It will bring you to new levels and dimensions of His glory.
Favor should never be compared to justice. Justice can only give you a measured response based on the law. Favor can only be measured by God’s inexhaustible love. This is why the Scripture says, “the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers.” You can see that this is pretty strong language.
When we reach our hands toward the Lord and let Him pour out His love upon us anyway He desires, we are seeking favor. He is the potter and we are the clay: “Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?”
“What if God, willing to shew His wrath, and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had afore prepared unto glory, even us, whom He hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?”
“As He saith also in Scripture, ‘I will call them My people, which were not My people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, “Ye are not My people; there shall they be called the children of God”
As you can see, God makes this choice by His divine favor. Oh how blessed we are to live in His favor!

The Word of God: A Firewall of Protection

Sometimes we are faced with an emptiness in our spirit concerning situations we are in. Are impending bills you are unable to pay, an illness, or maybe an upcoming meeting impacting every co-worker of yours leaving a deep emptiness in your body? I am here to give you some really good news. Christ has an answer for it all!

 

The third chapter of Hebrews doesn’t seem to apply to this situation, but actually it hits the nail right on the head.  Paul says, “But Christ as a Son over His own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.” Now here, Apostle Paul talks about how important it is to hold fast in your confidence to the end. The enemy is shooting fiery darts at us, and that’s the dark empty feeling of worry which comes from his attack.

 

But notice the next verse in this Scripture: “Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, ‘Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness’”. God is telling us to focus upon His word at the moment of attack, and to make sure we don’t harden our hearts against God‘s revealed word.

 

Last week I was facing a very intense trial. I knew God was going to save me, but I didn’t know when or where. The trial weighed so heavily in my spirit and the emptiness was so vast that as I sat traveling in our car I felt frozen by the weight of the attack. Suddenly my sweet daughter, Misty Déjà Vu Gazowsky, said to me, “Daddy, I have a word from God for you.” But I was so busy in my own thoughts and intercession that I hardened my heart from hearing her voice. Ten minutes later she made a second attempt at trying to communicate with me, but I still was not willing to listen.

 

Then, after another 20 minutes had passed, she said, “If you don’t want to hear I’ll just be quiet. Or would you like to hear this word from the Lord He gave to you?” Gratefully, this time I heard her. She said these simple words, “Remember, in just one moment God can change everything.” She then proceeded to remind me of times in the Bible where just one moment changed a situation from slavery to rulership.

 

As I listened to the words of my daughter, I totally embraced them in my heart. I took them for the boldness of the truth they were, and more importantly, I believed them. An amazing thing happened in my spirit. My shield of faith became as strong as titanium destroying every fiery dart of thought which satan was bringing against me! 

 

Suddenly, I was in perfect peace. I mean, the kind of peace that only God gives. I felt like the healthiest and wealthiest person in the world as an abundance of joy flooded my spirit. That single word has carried me through for  more than a week, and every attack since has been defeated by the power and protection of that word. In just one moment God can change everything. 
As the days pass by, I realize the reason His simple word is so powerful is that the foundation of planet earth itself, and everything that exists around us was established by the word of God. When you believe and understand the power of His word, and receive it in your heart in the midst of your greatest trial, you will find yourself rejoicing with joy, happiness, and peace in your heart. It is because you are standing on His word and His word alone. The word of God is such a tremendous firewall of protection around you.

 

But, I must also remind you, the word which will protect you is a word that is fresh from the Lord  applying to your situation. It is very important that  it is fresh from God and alive and pertinent to what you are dealing with. For this reason, daily prayer and intercession is so vitally important in our lives. Never live a day without it.

Waiting Past the Deadline

God‘s ways are not our ways. This can be a rude slap to the face if you don’t take the time to understand His ways. What God does is unique; He tests you in ways that completely reveal your innermost trust in His word. This is the reason why I believe what Paul said, “They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.” You must understand why God does things the way He does them.

A deadline refers to that moment when God is expected to fulfill a promise to you. We wonder why God waits past our deadlines to perform a miracle. Hopefully the purpose of our questioning is to understand God’s reasoning and to reveal His ways.

Scripture reveals great insight into God and His ways when we see how He dealt with King Saul. The Philistine nation had ruled over Israel for many years.  Two years after Saul became king he finally destroyed the Philistine garrison in a significant victory. The Philistines came out in full force with 30,000 soldiers and chariots. King Saul was ready to face them with very specific instructions from the Prophet Samuel, “And he tarried seven days, according to the set time that Samuel had appointed.” The next sentence reveals God’s way, “but Samuel came not to Gilgal; and the people were scattered from him.”

Why did King Saul see God breaking from His own set protocol of timing? There are multiple explanations for the king’s next reaction. It could be, “If God doesn’t care to come on time, I’ll take care of it.” Or maybe Saul was playing the victim, “What else can I do? I must defend these poor people.” I presume the king’s pride led him to take control. Let’s look at what the Bible says:

“And Saul said, ‘Bring hither a burnt offering to me, and peace offerings.’ And he offered the burnt offering.” This action blew up in his face when Samuel came to look at what Saul had done: “And Samuel said to Saul, ‘Thou hast done foolishly: thou hast not kept the commandment of the Lord thy God, which He commanded thee: for now would the Lord have established thy kingdom upon Israel for ever. But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the Lord hath sought Him a man after His own heart, and the Lord hath commanded him to be captain over His people, because thou hast not kept that which the Lord commanded thee.’”

These actions by God explain why He makes you wait past the proposed deadline for your miracle. He wants to see if you will obey His command even when it doesn’t make sense to you or to anyone else. Let me give you a personal example. In 2017, on January 29, we were staying in a hotel in Rome, Italy. My daughter, Misty Déjà Vu, was very ill and had to stay in her hotel room. The following morning her brother and sister came to my room and said, “Dad, we must take Misty to the hospital.” I asked the Lord if I should call an ambulance. After waiting a few minutes the Lord spoke to me and said, “Yes. Misty is going to be alright. I have two doctors prepared for her and they will know exactly what her problem is.” God did not tell me that Misty was going to die for 15 minutes. When my daughter suddenly died in the arms of the ambulance workers we were all shocked. We didn’t expect this! But this is God’s way.

He tells you His promise, but He does not tell you the trials that you are going to have to face as you wait for His outcome to be accomplished. All I had to go on was God’s word. This is the way God does things.  He gives you exactly what you need at the right time. You must stand on His word as your rock and foundation to carry you through the most troubled waters.

When my family and I arrived at the hospital the doctor came out and told me, “Your daughter is dead.” I must tell you the truth. I did not even consider the words that came out of the doctor’s mouth. I looked at him as stone-faced as I possibly could and simply said the words of God, “Misty is going to be alright.” The doctors shook their heads and walked away, but it did not matter. I stood on the rock of God’s word and nothing else.

God’s word about the two doctors came to pass when the doctors said, “As soon as we saw your daughter, we knew she had Addison’s disease.” When we looked online and read about this disease, it was like we were reading Misty’s medical history. At that point, I knew God was totally in control, and He had chosen this situation to show me the reason for His ways. There are surprises that occur past the deadline, but just before the miracle. In this, another way of God is revealed. God always tells us to wait until the light is turned on.

Jesus and His disciples waited until Lazarus had been dead for four days. Talk about waiting past the deadline!  This story really takes the cake! I want to emphasize a lesson that Jesus teaches in the process. “Jesus answered, ‘Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.’ These things said He: and after that He saith unto them, ‘Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.’”

Look at this powerful revelation that Jesus is showing us. There is a light revealed in you if you understand why God is making you wait for the light to turn on. Waiting illuminates your pathway and shows to the world your faith and trust in God’s word. When waiting for your miracle, if it appears that the miracle has passed its deadline, you must understand that you are causing a light from heaven to light up your pathway. This light will be bright enough to shine forth into multiple generations and secure your family’s place and promotion in history.

Waiting

One of the most important skills in life is waiting patiently. Jesus felt it was so important that He warned the generation of the last days, in the most critical time of their existence, “In your patience possess ye your souls.” Why is patience so valuable to the human condition? Isn’t patience just the skill of waiting?

Waiting cannot be assessed alone, but must be coupled with believing that something really special is going to happen. I personally believe this is the very dynamic that Jesus is expecting. For example: I am traveling with my family praying for America. While we are busy obeying His word over us as a family, we believe the Lord Himself will win San Francisco to Jesus. It was almost three years ago when God gave me this word and we are still waiting for it to come to pass.

During the last three months, in dreams, visions, and revelations from the Scripture, God has begun to reveal His plan for our church in San Francisco. I could see how He could win our city, but at the same time it almost seemed impossible! Then I remembered, with God nothing is impossible.

My daughter Misty was sick for over five years. The Lord spoke to me in dreams and in words from Him that He would bring healing to her. Even though our family took her to the hospital and they misdiagnosed her condition, the Lord spoke to me, “Wait.” It is hard for me to articulate the internal turmoil that was going on inside of me, looking at my daughter’s physical condition, while at the same time God was saying ”Wait.” The Bible clearly states that patience has a dynamic of perfecting us internally like nothing else can.

Listen to what James said, “Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.” According to that Scripture, patience is the only thing that will get you to the winner’s circle. With Misty’s health condition it was patience that brought us to not only the winner‘s circle, but to a prophetic happening that will be remembered by our family for generations to come.

Misty died in the arms of ambulance workers at Saint Valentine’s Gate, Rome, Italy. She was brought back to life at the Holy Spirit Hospital, which is right by Saint Peter’s Cathedral. In the 15 minutes that she was dead she went to heaven and saw hundreds of God’s angelic creatures ready to move on our behalf. This hospital was prepared with a doctor who knew exactly of Misty’s condition, was present when she came in, and immediately diagnosed her with Addison’s disease. This is how precise God’s plan is. It is also a reason why only patience gives us access to this precise fulfillment of everything that God has promised you.

God‘s plan for San Francisco is precise. It will bring joy to every household in our city, but it must be powered by people who are patient. We must rest in Him. Never assume God’s plan is late; it is always right on time. Never think that someone is going to jump ahead of you and take the prize God has reserved for you.

This morning when I woke up, I received a text message from Brother Doug Lanza (by the way, I have never talked to Doug about any plans for San Francisco). When I read what the Lord was speaking to him this morning, his words were line upon line, precept upon precept exactly what the Lord had talked to me about ~ and God had given me many details to fill in the gaps. God’s plan for our city is extremely detailed. But you will only need to grab a cup of tea or coffee, sit back, and then joyfully watch the God of the angel armies bring it together!

Part of my daughter’s recovery included neurological training, which reprograms the brain to perform all the functions of the body. After Misty‘s three months of hospitalization the general manager of our hotel told us that his wife worked at an Olympic training center where there was an excellent neurologist. Oh, how detailed and precise God is and His timing is amazing!

Misty’s lessons in Rome were so sophisticated that within a few weeks she began to recover all of her functions! Each day, as I sat in the Olympic pool house watching Misty I kept thinking of the movie “Sing”, where Mr. Moon was in the pool house. I giggled at how precise God is with our story. (The cartoon movie “Sing”, is a metaphor of what our church is going through).

God’s plan for A Place To Meet Jesus in San Francisco is so precise, so classy, and so elegant. Just be willing to “wait”.

Sent in love,

Pastor Richard Gazowsky
