Put a Candle in Your Window

The Lord spoke to me in prayer and said these simple instructions, “Place a candle in your window until November 6.” I am very familiar at the power simple obedience can have when we simply obey a word from the Lord. He told me that my little obedience and your little obedience to this simple instruction will cause very powerful things to happen all across America on Election Day.

I am always amazed at the power of simple obedience to what God says. When we traveled through Germany, a tour guide told us Martin Luther felt a word from God to have the German Christians place a candle on the tree in their front yard on Christmas Day, and then invite wayward travelers in to have dinner with them. This simple act hundreds of years ago is the reason millions of trees will be lit this Christmas all around the world, even as far as China.

We as a people are fasting and praying for this election; God said that if we do this simple act, things will change. Already in my daily prayer I am sensing the atmosphere all over America is changing. Wow! The power of simple obedience to God’s word!

Do You Know How Rich We Really Are?

I am learning daily how to receive the blessings of God. His blessings are so wonderful and overwhelming! The only way I can describe it, is that I’m living in literally heaven on earth. I am not exaggerating! Every day I actually feel like I’m the richest man that ever existed. When I wake up in the morning, immediately my thoughts go to praising God. My spirit rises up to an area of joy that doesn’t even compare with yesterday‘s joy. It seems more wonderful than it could ever get.

Then I take a look at my wife Sandy, the most beautiful young lady in the world, and she keeps getting younger every day. Her voice caresses my mind with kindness and joy. I find I am so in love that I’m like a newlywed! But that’s not all! Then I look at my three children Rocki, Misty, and Sunny. They bring such joy to me that I giggle and laugh all day at their beautiful godly insights about everything.

I haven’t even mentioned to you about the wealth of health that God has given me. How wonderful it is to have my mind sharp, tuning in to the amazing observations and wonders that God gives me every day. What a way to live in the richness of pure clean thoughts ushered in by the Good Shepherd through the exercise of listening to His still quiet voice.

About a year ago the Lord spoke to me to slow down as I walk through every day ~ to smell the roses, while sensing and touching all His creation around me. It amazes me how beautiful that experience has been. It is literally showing me that we are truly experiencing heaven on earth!

Then God brought to my mind the congregation in San Francisco, at A Place To Meet Jesus. I see their names appearing each day on Periscope as they join me in prayer. I am tickled to see how much they love the Lord. I feel like I am the richest pastor in the world to have a congregation that loves the Lord with such passion and desire.

Wait a minute! I haven’t really told you half of it! Because I have traveled all over the United States praying, I have seen the wealth of Christians that are in our nation ~ and the blessings that are rising in every sector of the economy. Wow! America is rich! And then I saw one of the greatest wonders that is coming to the whole planet earth! Everyone is prospering. Praise the Lord!

Lightning-Fast Communication In Prayer

Today we are very excited about the power of communicating with our smart phones. Using my smart phone has made me aware of the lightning communication that occurs when we pray. The key to discovering this awesome and reliable communication is praying in harmony with the will of God.

Perfect harmony and timing are important factors in the will of God. There is also the requirement for lightning-fast action. Jesus’ best friends told Him that Lazarus was deathly sick. Instead of going immediately to his bedside, Jesus waited in the town miles away. This had nothing to do with communication breakdown between Jesus and the Father, but literally was Jesus waiting so that His timing and God‘s will were in perfect harmony.

I believe Jesus also knew that prayer would get a bad rap, and that the people would think that the problem was with communication. If He did pray when they asked for prayer, then it would look like God put them in a long bureaucratic line with an extended waiting period just to see if they really wanted it. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Any thought that a prayer takes a millisecond longer to be answered after a prayer is communicated is wrong, and is a lie from the enemy. Prayer is lightning fast when it is done at the right place and the right time. It is like a combination lock. When the right series of numbers is dialed, immediately the door opens. So it is with prayer. When everything is aligned properly, then God answers your prayer instantly.

Jesus knew many people would face this question regarding prayer, so He gave the following explanation for the reason He waited and did not go to Lazarus’ bedside when he was sick.

“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.’

Jesus knew that if He went immediately and prayed for Lazarus, he would not be healed because it was not the right time that the Father chose to perform the great miracle on His friend’s body. Jesus was letting His disciples know that the reason He did not pray for Lazarus at that point (and the reason they needed to go to that city) was because He was going to the right place at the right time to where the miracle could occur. This lesson is so vital! Miracles occur only in the perfect will of God.

Notice how quickly the Lord’s prayer was answered when He finally came to the right place at the right time ~ and the combination lock was turned correctly. “Then Jesus prayed this prayer, “Father, I thank Thee that Thou hast heard Me. And I knew that Thou hearest Me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that Thou hast sent Me.’ And when He thus had spoken, He cried with a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come forth.’ Lazarus immediately rose from the dead completely healed, and began walking out in his still tightly-bound grave clothes.”

Notice how lightning fast this answer came when Jesus prayed at the right place at the right time. This is the phenomenon that I have been seeing daily in our prayer time on Periscope. When we come into perfect agreement at the right place at the right time things happen instantly. I believe we all will see this same phenomenon in California, in America, and throughout the entire earth. As we pray in secret God rewards us openly, and we see the great revival that is coming to the earth happening before our eyes. Wow! Let’s continue this lightning-fast phenomenon called “prayer”.

See you daily on Periscope in prayer. Just download the Periscope app onto your iPhone and type in my name: Richard Gazowsky.

California’s New Highway of Holiness

I believe the prophet Isaiah saw the state of California and it’s beautiful future when he prophesied these words, “And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called the way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.”

Last week I shared how Paul Cain and Timothy Snodgrass both prophesied about California’s highway 5 that I am now traveling along while praying with you daily on Periscope. When I started this journey at the border of Mexico, I saw a vision of an angelic army following me. This vivid vision has continued every day of our travels. Last Wednesday night, I had a dream while I seemed awake at 3 AM in the morning. Whether I was awake or sleeping I do not know, but the dream was very real. 

The angelic force that was galloping behind me walked towards my side as I was sleeping. They were huge beasts ~ kind of a cross between a bird and a horse. The Lord told me to pet them, and I found that their feathers were as soft as cashmere. But underneath, I felt the hardened steel of their bodies. I saw my daughter Misty lying asleep on the wing of one of the angelic creatures. The Lord said He is taking care of her while she recovers. 

Suddenly, I saw a blazing fire and a sparkling-diamond creature, but I could not look at him because it was too bright for my eyes. Then I saw that the breakthrough angelic creature had huge emblems upon his chest and one of them exploded in front of me, causing a great impact to destroy a blockage. When I felt the other emblem on its chest it was shaking like an earthquake, and the Lord spoke to me and said, “This creature in the next few days will shake the accusers of the innocent judge, and they will be exposed to the whole nation of America.” The Lord then added, “You are sheep so you should not be afraid. These are here to ensure that only evil tares will be removed.”

The Lord then told me to climb upon the back of the breakthrough angel. There, I found a beautiful cubbyhole in his back. I could sleep inside the soft feathers like a little baby in a cocoon. The Lord said, “You are the only one who can stop the breakthrough angel. If you rest peacefully on his back, he will fight all of the battles and bring you perfect success and you will possess all that God has promised you. But if you look up and get tempted to control the breakthrough angel, or tell him it’s a mistake, then he will be angry at your words and will destroy the works of your hands.” (This I knew was a Scripture written by Solomon warning about this very thing.) 

The Lord continued, “The creature knows exactly My plan for your life. You do not have to advise him, remind him, or say anything to him. Just receive the blessings that he is bringing to you.” The Lord then continued with this most important point: “This promise is not just for you, Richard, but it is for everyone that I have placed under your anointing.”

The Lord then reminded me of the time that Jesus had fallen asleep in the boat in the midst of the storm. God told me it was His will for Christ to sleep during the entire storm, but the disciples became so scared that they woke Jesus up. He was angry with the disciples for having so little faith. The storm immediately stopped when he commanded, “Peace, be still!” 

God told me that for evil to be completely removed from the state of California, we’ve got to let the angelic armies complete their task. The warfare must continue until all evil is gone from our state. We must be careful not to become more merciful than God. We do not want to give the devil even a little bit of mercy. We want him completely removed from San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sacramento, and each town in the entire state of California ~ until every single home has the love of God flowing through it in all of its glory and beauty. Amen and amen!

Believe

For what saith the Scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Many times this year I’ve faced the stark truth that is in this Scripture.
 
What makes this Scripture so important is that it is not what Abraham built, or what he did, or what he was, but is what he chose to believe. The amazing part of this truth is that God looks at what you believe internally, that means in the thoughts and intents of your heart, and determines if you are righteous or not.
 
Coming to this basic truth can be a revelation that can greatly affect and determine your future. This is because you realize you are walking down the road where every footstep is monitored and measured by someone. Of course if you are a Christian this is some of the best news you could ever hear! 
 
You are striving to do right and it feels like everything and everybody is stacked up against you. Then suddenly you realize that God is watching your every move, every thought, every little detail of your existence ~ and is making His decision if you are righteous and fully qualified for the blessing that He is promising you.
 
Wow! This is fantastic! This is miraculous! Because you’re not alone! You are being watched! And the reward is secure because you “believe.”

“Resting Versus Strenuous Self Effort: The Power in Prayer”

I would like to take a moment to talk about changing your internal programming. This would be your own thoughts, intents, and even habits. You know the things that you might say, “Oh, that’s just my way“ ~ yet it’s such a part of you that if you tried to change it you’d soon find out you’re incapable of the task.
 
Now let me present you with an actual internal mental problem that I was tracking and trying to change in my thinking. Whenever someone brought up a certain subject; my mind would flood with negative responses about that situation. So I decided to go into intercession and I asked the Lord in His power to go into the library of my mind and to the stacks and stacks of negative memories. 
 
I asked the Lord to take those memories and cast them in to the sea of forgetfulness so I could no longer remember them anymore. At this point the Lord said this, “Richard, do you know that mercy is a gift that only comes from God, and that what you’re asking for is pure mercy?”
 
The Lord’s response to my prayer set me into a long time of prayer and meditation, as I tried to understand or comprehend this incredible wisdom. But then I saw the simple truth. God has given me many inventions, and through that process I have seen that man cannot create anything. He only gets fresh new ideas from God. 
 
Then suddenly I saw how God creates mercy. He creates and does that which no man can do, erases all the negative and makes our minds completely fresh and new again! What I’m talking about is simply becoming like a child.
 
This brings us to my title, Resting Versus Strenuous Self Effort (the exercise of trying to fix everything yourself). Oh how many times I have tried to use my own human effort to fix something, especially my own thoughts ~ when God is the only one that can do it. Simple, but a great truth. This is why prayer is so valuable.

Gentle Secrets in Prayer

The day that God called our family to travel around the world to pray, He also said something very significant: “It is better if you pray according to the Lord’s Prayer ~ ‘Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.’” Like I say in the title, this is a secret, not something to be declared publicly.  The reason I am sharing this with you, is because the secret to powerful prayer is not found in your will, but in Heaven’s will. When you are agreeing with Heaven’s will, you will change the course of nations.

 I have seen some of the most impossible miracles. But I have also seen God leave some room for the enemy to cause doubt. This is the basic premise of God‘s actions. He asks you to do simple obedience in prayer, and then causes miraculous wonders to occur right before your eyes! Yet God always leaves room for plausible deniability. This is because you have to make a visible intentional choice to give Him the credit because of your belief. (I am surprised when God never takes action against the ones that refuse to give Him credit for their gifts.)

On Friday, God told me to publicly pray for Sweden. This is where our good friends Ingalill and Vello Vaim live. My family and I have spent a lot of time in Sweden, and I sensed the hearts of the people of Sweden were longing for Jesus to be praised in their nation. But I also know the process is not something that is understood by the secular non-godly community.

Prayer is the main structure of the invisible kingdom of God. This kingdom is not a democracy, where we are accustomed to things happening by popular consent.  Many people think that the number of people that you have in agreement answers prayer. But this is not true; God’s ways are not like our ways.

With this in mind, Jesus said, “If two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.” The key to this is your agreement agrees with heaven, and the King then says, “Yes, this is something ‘I will to be done.’”  So today as I prayed for Sweden, I saw someone in the royal family exalting Jesus and the whole country unifying behind this royal family member.

I am delighted to share this with you! God gives gentle secrets in prayer before the news media can even report about them. Don’t be surprised when you read about Sweden in the news.

For Mercy’s Sake

Mercy is an incredible spirit that comes exclusively from God. One of the most sacred and incomparable events that ever happened to any human on this earth was when Moses was allowed to see God. If you are familiar with this incident recorded in the Bible, then you are aware of that Moses did not actually “see” God, but was able to get as close as any human has ever gotten to the Lord.
This event, which is wonderfully portrayed in the Scriptures, says that God put His hand in front of Moses’ face and then passed before him. What Moses saw was an expression of words that said, “And I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.”

 

Now let me take you to today and to our prayer life. Just as there are different frequencies on your radio, there are also different accesses to Christ. By this, I mean spirits or attitudes of the heart. One Scripture put it this way, “to those that are hard I will be like an adamant stone, but to the merciful I will show mercy.” God is showing the different frequencies He uses. 

 Now that I have experienced the kind and gentle teddy-bear love of God, available to all who are willing to approach the presence of His mercy, I hope and pray that every moment of my entire life remains in this place with God.

 Mercy has changed many of my memories concerning my parents. I can now only remember the wonderful times we had together. It has also changed the way I look at my relatives when I think about our interactions together. Only joyous, good, and pleasant events come to my mind. 

 Mercy has even cleansed all unpleasant memories regarding any of the people that attended our church ~ which includes the 16,000 people that were baptized which received salvation under my mother’s ministry. It’s all good! 

 Mercy has gone through the rows and rows of hurtful memories recorded in my mental library, has taken out every book that references something that could be bad or ugly, and cast them into the sea of forgetfulness!

Oh, may all of us have mercy cleanse any corrupted mental files and volumes of needed-to-be forgotten memories! How wonderful to have only memories that God’s mercy has cleansed.

The Joy of Waking Up

A few years ago I discovered that the thing that really matters each day, is that you can go to bed at night with the joy of knowing that you fulfilled your purpose on the earth for that day. It’s amazing how this thinking gives you such a perfect sleep each night as you rest your head on your pillow. One of the key elements, is discovering that peaceful rest comes from being perfectly obedient to God’s quiet whisper in your spirit. 
 
For example, today my family and I were standing in Walmart and suddenly God whispered for us to go to a specific restaurant in the city and eat. When we got to the cashier to place our order ~ it was delayed, and delayed, and delayed even more. It took so long that some of my family members said, “What is going on? Why is it taking so long?” 
 
Then they looked at the entry door and suddenly, out of the blue, in came Timothy Snodgrass and his family to the same restaurant! We didn’t even know they were anywhere near the town that we were in. There is no way that could’ve happened by accident, and both of our families knew it was God that had orchestrated our timing. Events like this make each day sparkle with an incredible joy that cannot be compared with any of life‘s experiences. 
 
But now let me get to the main subject, which is waking up in the morning. For some reason I have found many times that when I awake out of a deep sleep, I am usually attacked by incredible thoughts that are wild fiery darts from the enemy trying to fill my waking moments with doubt. One morning I laid there in bed and said, “Help me, God! What do I do at this moment?” The Lord then spoke to me and said, ”Read James the first chapter.”  It says: “Count it all joy when you fall in to various temptations.” 
 
As I started thinking about every attack coming at me ~ how America is going to survive, bills that I had to pay, situations with relatives, where would we be sleeping that night, or how is this or that was going to happen ~ I began to express joy about the attacks! An amazing thing had happened. Deep within my spirit I had started to giggle, and I didn’t even know where this joy was coming from. But it was truly bountiful and inexplicable joy!
 
Then I read further, “Knowing this, that the trial of your faith worketh patience, and let patience have her perfect work.” I used this Scripture to filter through the thoughts in my mind ~ like floors of an apartment complex that are thoroughly washed. The joy of patience was having her perfect work in my brain! I must tell you now that this process has given me an incomparable mind of faith. And to think, God did it!
 
Good morning to all of you! May you have the revelation that each trial of your faith is bringing excellence to you.

The Reality of the Invisible Kingdom of God

According to Exclusive Premium Statistics, by 2020 there will be 2.1 billion smart-phone users in the world. This invisible electronic phone network is linked together by all of the telephone networks across the globe. This technology was given to us by God and it is a visible example of God‘s invisible kingdom. It also shows the potential God is about to reveal in His invisible kingdom.

The smart phone that you place in your pocket or purse is the device you use to communicate with. And so it is that your human body is the device that we use to communicate with God and to network in the kingdom of God. God created us with all of the hardware and software we need to work and connect with His invisible kingdom. The Holy Spirit inside of you is the daily program God puts inside your tummy every day if you ask Him to. The software of the Holy Spirit is so advanced, it can search every day about everything that you are facing, right from where you’re sitting. It is the complete search engine.

There is a real reason that the Bible calls this invisible network a kingdom, because that’s exactly how it works. The Bible is full of teaching examples and stories. Each one is intricately planned and shows how to use the kingdom of God, a complex worldwide network, to your advantage. The safest and most secure way to use the network of the kingdom of God is through the name of Jesus. He is the King and His name is the door to clear, virus-free communication.

Now let me use an example that just happened to my family as I was sitting at the dinner table at a large theme park while writing this blog. My daughter Rocki said, “The fireworks just ended and I feel the Lord telling us to go out of the park by a way we haven’t gone before.” Our family stood up, and headed towards the main street. There, we saw a door behind the main street, where nobody was. An employee was closing the door, but when my family turned and began walking towards the door, he got busy on the grounds and didn’t close the door until we walked past him. We were headed through this back-alley passageway that led straight to the exit gates. As we walked down the alleyway the Lord spoke to me and said, “Do you see My kingdom network? I am so concerned about you and your family that I provided this passageway for you to leave the park tonight.”

Now to some of you, this may seem like an insignificant event, but God is not that way. He watches over every detail. As a matter of fact, the Scriptures reveal that He actually numbers every hair that is on your head! Sometimes we don’t realize how accurate and detailed God is in our life. This is why every detail that Jesus taught us about the kingdom of God must be followed according to the Scriptures. When He says to give no thought of what you should eat, He means exactly what He says. This is the key to perfect health ~ allowing the Holy Spirit to be your dietitian. Especially when it comes down to the details of your thoughts and intents of your heart.

The future is coming when God will re-organize the structure of the church to a massive network of congregations that assembles and fills entire stadiums. These stadiums have been built in every nation according to God’s purpose.  May mankind can come together and praise His name!
