“All I Want To Do Is Cuddle With The Lord”

By Richard Gazowsky

There are times in life when momentous things happen which are so earth-shaking it permanently changes your life forever. This week has been one of the only times I’ve ever had climatic events occur in such swift succession.

Let me now tell you about the reality of a move of God. Last Friday night, Gershom Sikaala ministered, and the glory of God was so strong through Grace Williams’ worship, and Gershom’s prophetic word, that I was slain in the spirit on the floor. I felt waves of God’s glory cleansing the inner parts of my spirit. While I lay there, I was reminded of a word, 28 years ago, when Jesus told me, “Richard, I will give you money on the day you lose weight.” This word was so simple and powerful, that I tried to jump ahead of God, and went on over 100 diets. I gained weight until I was 310 pounds of pure fat.

Years later, through a complex series of visits to the hospital, family intercession, and obedience to God, the Lord whittled me down to 250 pounds. The prophetess Joy, in Singapore, had prophesied to me three years prior and said, “You will go down to 250 pounds and stay there until the Lord is ready to release it all to you.” I know it sounds funny, that I’m talking about my belly and the will of God, but it’s the only way I can share with you how profound this last week has been to me and the church that I pastor, A Place To Meet Jesus.

As I continued to lay on the floor I heard Gershom prophesying, “The Lord is changing you on the inside. This is why it is so hard for you to change your eating habits. Your flesh has locked into its old way of eating. It does not want to learn anything different. But now, the power of God is upon you, and He is cleansing you on the inside. Everything from your previous habit is washed clean. Now God is giving you a chance to learn how to eat anew. Make sure you develop an eating habit which is glorious to the Lord.”

After hearing these words, I realized that the Lord had changed me. The next day I wasn’t hungry at all. I could’ve fasted all day and had no desire to touch food. But I realized that God was changing me and and that I needed to take advantage of this change. That same morning, Sandy offered me an incredible breakfast, and I heard the Lord say, “Begin your new life.” I ate only one egg, a half piece of toast, and was full. I was shocked! And it continued like this for days! By Monday night, I had lost six pounds! The weight just continues to roll off my body.

God is not done with me. And He’s definitely not done with the church. On Sunday morning, Timothy Snodgrass prophesied that an unusual numerical miracle was to occur at midnight, on 7/14/14. That’s five 7’s in a row. The number 7 represents God’s perfect number, and the number 5 represents His grace. This moment was so critical that satan tried to keep prophet Timothy away from the evening service. But Gershom, under the anointing of God, started prophesying at about 9:30pm, and went on thundering until 12 midnight! At 20 minutes until midnight, God’s glory filled the sanctuary so overwhelmingly, that almost the entire congregation was slain in the spirit on the floor! Personally, I was so drunk in the Spirit that my mouth hung open, and my arms swung like a drowning maniac, losing it in overwhelming joy! In a mix of absurdly ridiculous positions, I saw a vision of Jesus Christ walking through the body. Gershom, not far away, tried to calm everyone down so they didn’t explode! Later, I discovered that multiple people saw the same vision of Jesus that I was honored to see; we giggled as we compared notes from the night!

This glory continued into Monday. I felt the Lord tell me to drive Gershom to his appointment in Fresno, where they had heard about the glory falling in San Francisco. They asked Gershom to come to an office building, and share what God had done. We arrived at 8pm, and Gershom began to share what the Lord was doing in our city. Right then, the glory of the Lord began to fall upon the people. At first it was only 15 people; then it grew to 50. By 11pm, every single person was on the floor, and the glory of God was rolling through, just as He had done at A Place To Meet Jesus. Gershom’s eyes began to play tricks on him, and things became out of focus. He realized that a cloud of glory was appearing, and everyone in the audience began to run toward the cloud. When they gathered in, the power of God knocked them to the floor! I was incredibly embarrassed, because as I was slain, just a few feet from me was the pastor’s wife! My British grandmother, Adeline Burrows, had always instructed me to behave myself when I’m a guest in someone else’s house. And here I was, drunk in the Spirit on the floor!

I am happy to say, when I talked with the pastor’s wife sometime later, she was very gracious, and said she was happy that we were partying with the Lord together! But that is not the end of the story…

The next day, through a series of events, I drove Gershom & Pastor Antonio down to Southern California. On highway 99, I was driving 70 miles per hour, when suddenly the Lord entered the car. Gershom began prophesying, “We are in the days that are greater than Kathryn Kuhlman, George Whitman, & Smith Wigglesworth. We are in days that are greater than all of the days of the past. I see a picture of an angel writing with a feathered pen in His hand; there will be history makers, people that are greater than these former generals of God. God is raising new generals that will do even greater things.” He then saw the angel continue to write a new list of history makers.

Gershom continued with these words, “God is doing something greater than Azusa Street, that carries the move of God and will not be stopped. These are the days we are living in now. The spirit of the Lord is moving in a way we cannot understand, because we are so locked in the old way of doing things.”

I continued to drive, as a whirlwind appeared in the field next to the car, spinning up into the sky. Gershom was holding two phones in his hand. On one phone my daughters, Misty and Rocki, began to prophesy that Antonio was going to Egypt! On the other line was Pastor Jeff Watson from Las Vegas, who also had a prophetic word. I felt the Lord take control of the car, and let my hands off of the steering wheel. At this moment, Pastor Antonio and Sandy became worried, and wondered what was going to happen. Gershom said, “Don’t worry, we are going to be translated to the studio.”

As I am dictating this blog, our car sits in front of the studio. Gershom and Antonio are entering a major Arabic television station, which serves as the number one Christian station in Egypt. No one knew this beforehand! No one knew this destiny was on us today. In the midst of all of this glory, I, Pastor Richard Gazowsky, have only one thought in my mind. Can I just cuddle with you, Lord Jesus?

Monday Morning Blog: “Being Willing To Think The Impossible Becoming Common”

By Richard Gazowsky

“And the two shall become one flesh.” This sacred Biblical statement has never meant so much to me as it did this past Friday night at the Supernatural Life conference with Gershom Sikaala and Timothy Snodgrass. When I married Sandy forty years ago, she won my affections by her ability to listen and understand me. I shared with her the things that excited me, gave my life meaning, and made me want to touch the literal heavens above.

In the early days of our marriage, like most other businessmen and pastors, I traveled alone. I would find myself in barren tungsten lit hotel rooms with the faint, stale smell of cigarettes, feeling sad because there was no one to share the adventure of my day with. I would call Sandy and the kids at home, but it just wasn’t the same. One night, flying out of Denver, my plane’s transfer to San Francisco was delayed because of weather. I arrived at the hotel lobby with the other stranded passengers and went up to the hotel receptionist. A woman that had also been on the flight, (who was not in a wholesome outfit,) slipped up beside me at the counter without any introduction told the receptionist, “Just put me in his room.” I was shocked and turned red in the face; I realized I was holding a moment in time that was a live bomb, ready to explode. I whirled around from the counter and walked out of the hotel swiftly! The cold wind felt so refreshing and so cleansing as the icy air bit against my skin. I walked quickly to the next hotel, and paid out of my own expenses for a room. Once in my room, I rushed to the phone and shared the events of my day with my love, Sandy. I told her how much I desperately missed her. As I laid down that night, I made a covenant with God that I would never travel without my family again. I realized Sandy was my protection; I could not live without my better half!

Sandy has traveled with me in many international adventures. She was there when I was pick pocketed in a street market in Vietnam. Sandy was by my side drinking coffee in a Paris cafe, buying shoes in a Milan boutique, walking through the underground caves of Cappadocia, and smuggling Bibles into communist China. She spent the night next to me in a crashed bus that went through a government checkpoint in Liberia, West Africa. She was beside me when a Mossad agent ripped the film out of my camera because I had taken pictures of a sensitive area, and stood beside me at a hotel counter where we discovered we owed nearly three hundred dollars for one long-distance phone call to my mother. She was there when God miraculously stopped the rain in Africa four nights in a row, and three times she joined me in donating our house to the Lord. She agreed with me to give our new cars away and also rejoiced as God gave us brand new cars paid in full. In every adventure, our love for each other has deepened.

Last Friday night, on the eleventh day of the seventh month of 2014, our love plunged deeper still. That night, we realized the exciting part of our life together is just beginning, and any mundane days are over! When Gershom Sikaala called me to the front of the church, along with other ministers, I realized, this is it! This is the moment we have been waiting for, when we will finally get to sail down the highest peak on God’s big roller coaster. At that pinnacle moment, little 4’11” Sandy slipped up next to me, and I put my arm around her as the presence of God flooded over us. It was such a wave of glory that my only response was sobs filled with joy and wonder. One thought burst out of my heart… After all this, my love is here beside me.

“The Holy Spirit Health-Kit”


Monday Morning Blog: “Integrating Dreams And Visions And Prophecies For A Better Prophetic Understanding”

By Richard Gazowsky

iHealthKit is a new function that Apple is adding to the iPhone with the IOS 8 that is going to be released this coming October. This new feature has been described like this: “HealthKit is a feature that speaks with fitness and health apps to pull information from various apps into a single app called Health that centralizes results. The software features the capacity to integrate this information with healthcare systems such as the Mayo Clinic. It can present weight, activity, heart rate, and more (Boy Genius Report Inc.).” As you can see, Apple is turning the purpose of the notification center app of the iPhone into a strategic function that is used for many other things besides making a phone call.

So it is, as we become more mature and aware of how to better use the interface of the Holy Spirit that lives inside our tummies, you will begin to know that the function of the notification center that resides in your spirit is becoming the most active element in your spiritual life. This activity is a daily, hourly, even minute-by-minute activity you will experience every day. Which brings me to the spiritual function that is the center of our discussion: “HealthKit”.

First, let us discuss the functions of the Holy Spirit HealthKit that is actually inside your spirit. Jesus described it this way, “Therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?” What the Lord is saying here is that you should turn all of your daily plans and health issues over to the Holy Spirit Notification Center. In other words, you don’t have to worry about one single health issue. I know it sounds too good to be true but you need to understand that this is the advanced ways of the Spirit. God wants to help you daily through your life, by allowing the Holy Spirit HealthKit to deal with every health issue.

Let me give you a simple example: I have dealt with the issue of being overweight for over 35 years. Finally it brought about a serious heart failure issue and a 14-day stay in the hospital. I have now lost over 70 pounds of excess weight, but continue to follow the doctor’s medication and dietary recommendations. But I am also learning to turn all of my health issues over to the Holy Spirit HealthKit. Instead of planning my diet intellectually, I am now listening to the Notification Center of the Holy Spirit. I only eat when He tells me to eat and what He tells me to eat. To the amazement of my family and I, I am slowly losing weight, getting more healthy, and eating less and less while not going through the former binges and desire to overeat. I admit that this does take practice and a constant willingness to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s guiding.

Recently somebody I have not seen for a few years looked at how “skinny” I was becoming and asked me, “What are you doing differently?” Since I had not been thinking about the subject of food at first I did not know how to respond. It used to be that food was always on my mind. Now I don’t think about it at all. Before, I used to plan on writing a weight-loss book when I finally felt I was successful at losing weight. Now I have no desire to talk about it because I turned that function of my life over to the Holy Spirit Notification Center. I am constantly amazed by the Holy Spirit’s ability and desire to daily guide my life in such apparently miniscule tasks that few people on earth would have an interest in guiding me on. Yet God with His great patience daily provides me with a food schedule.

I have only discussed the function of the HealthKit in helping you control one’s diet. But the spiritual function inside of you is much more capable than this. The Holy Spirit literally searches with all-seeing eyes your future health needs concerning exercise, diet, what foods you’re going to need to bring about health care cures of sickness you might face in the future. When you begin to see how wonderful the Holy Spirit’s HealthKit is, you will start releasing faith’s power in your life and you will find every day you will become healthier and healthier.

And remember, everything we are discussing here is explained explicitly in the word of God especially in the teachings of Jesus Christ. We all have heard stories of people who are super healthy, but now you know the secret and it is activated by your faith and belief in the word of God. Start today, by letting Him provide you with lunch. That’s all it takes, just a simple believe for a simple thing. But you are beginning the journey to turn on the Holy Spirit HealthKit in your life.

“The New Phone Concept”


By Richard Gazowsky

When I was a young man I remember the phones used to be hooked up to what we called party lines. Every phone was connected to a cable and many phones were connected together so if you picked up the phone line other people could hear your phone call.

This was the way it used to be years ago in many churches. The only time it seemed you could talk to God was in a church service and almost everybody in the church kind of knew what your problems were. At this time the church was not aware of the powerful human interface and was waiting to be activated inside the tummy by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Then Christians around the world begin to realize that they could activate the Holy Spirit inside their tummy just as Jesus said in the word of God. The amazing thing about this revelation was that the same transformation that happened in the mobile phone industry is the same revelation that is happening inside, with our ability to pray and communicate with God Himself. In the early days to talk on the phone you had to be connected to a wire. And so it was, to talk to God He needed to be connected to a church service itself.

Now let me make something very clear. I am currently the pastor of a large church in San Francisco so I definitely feel the church itself is not being obsoleted. Instead, it is being brought to a new and much more important function in the body of Christ. The church was an originally designed by Christ to equip the body of Christ (all Christians) to do the work of the kingdom of God ~ the same works that Jesus did when He was on earth.

I have a good example to see how God is changing the church and its relationship to us. And that is how our relationship is changing with our banks. I work with Bank of America in my business relationship. It used to be that I would always have to go personally to the bank to do a transaction (especially one that was important). Now things have changed so much I can transfer money from an account simply by using my iPhone. I can even receive very complex instructions and training on how to use the new equipment at home by my iPhone!

Just this week I received a new credit card machine that connects to my iPhone so I can make credit card purchases for my company through my iPhone. The training for this new device was done completely as I was sitting at home in my living room while conversing with bank instructors on my iPhone. The bank was equipping me to do the work of the bank mobile app conveniently right from my own dwelling. But what God is doing in the church today is much more sophisticated and powerful than what banks are doing in their relationship with us.

God has placed an interface inside of you that is not only mobile, but is active wherever you are in the universe. You can communicate instantly with God Himself by simply using the access code, which is the name of Jesus. Jesus warned us to always use His name because it is the protection from robbery and thieves who try to come in by some other method or some other name. His name is the six-digit security code you need in every communication.

To clarify my point on the ever-growing importance of the church, let me compare it to the increased importance in my relationship to Bank of America. To properly do my work with Bank of America from my home, I require them to increase the security of my financial transactions. The bank provides me that security with the use of pass codes and passwords to enable me to pay my bills and have funds securely transferred to my accounts.

The church has exactly the same function in your spiritual life. Now, with our increased understanding of the technology of the Holy Spirit, it is possible for you to pray and have prayers answered without ever going to a physical church service. That’s because the church pastor, evangelists, prophets, teachers, and apostles are providing you with security that is the most important element in your daily spiritual interaction.

And for all of this fantastic service we are instructed by God merely to willingly give 10% of our incomes as a “tithe” to the Lord. So you see the church, just like banks, is not becoming obsolete but is actually becoming more important and relevant to our daily activities and interactions with each other.

Let’s take a moment and look at how simple phone communication has become over the last few years. You are no longer tied to a cord and you can communicate while driving your car with a hands-free device, or merely walking down the street. What’s amazing is that our spiritual communication with God by the power of the Holy Spirit is even more mobile than a physical iPhone. Your mobile communication with God occurs inside your tummy, for Jesus said, “Out of your belly shall flow rivers of living water.” Here Jesus is telling us that the belly is the source of all spiritual power from God.

Let me explain to you clearly what this means. The Holy Spirit inside your tummy is the source of all new ideas, inventions, healings, finances, instructions, teachings, and the list goes on and on. In the past, pastors like myself have tried to make Christians understand that the church is the source of power. I know now that this thinking is flawed and was a big mistake. So what is the function of the church, and is it still necessary?

Matter-of-fact, I believe the church is more necessary now than it ever was. That’s why Jesus said that He has built His church hard by the gates of hell. The church’s function is similar to that of a bank. It provides security for each person that is using the power of the Holy Spirit. Christians that have been taught the proper function of a congregation are under an umbrella of security protection over their families, their businesses, their finances, and their children. These functions are extremely important because they build a strong family environment that continues its protection around your personal interface so He can operate in all of the functions that the Holy Spirit has assigned it to operate.

To illustrate this, I live in the city of San Francisco, which is famous for wickedness that has come out of it. Yet in this evil city I have been able to raise a family that loves Jesus and is just as pure as they can possibly be because we have been members of a proper functioning congregation that has the ministries of apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, and evangelists upgrading it all the time.

The reason I am taking time to explain the function of the church is because I do not want you to be personally attacked by Satan, who will try to lie and convince you to disconnect from a local congregation because the power of the Holy Ghost is so independent. But the independence that exists in the Holy Spirit is totally important for you to function properly with the body of Christ, by this I mean the church.

Many times in the Bible we found kings who experienced great advancement in power and authority and then disconnected their selves from the council of the church. For instance, King Saul reigned for two years and then he quit listening to the prophet Samuel. Samuel told him that when he was small in his own eyes he listened to the counsel of the prophet. But when he became large with an ego he did his own will, which caused Samuel to make the famous quote, “Obedience is better than sacrifice”. The more powerful you become in the ways of the technology of the Holy Spirit, the more you need to become acutely aware of God’s safety and covering that He has placed over you through the church of Jesus Christ.

Though I can use my iPhone to communicate to somebody from almost anywhere on planet earth, I am also aware that the security of the phone can be broken and my phone calls can be listened to by others. Recently it was discovered that the US government can monitor and record our phone calls and messages. It makes sense that if the government can spy on us we must be careful because bad people can also. This is why God has provided you and I with the function of the church and all of its ministries so that they can provide training, encouragement, and especially protection for us so that things never have to go wrong.

Yes, the spiritual interface of the Holy Spirit inside your body is incredible because it empowers you with freedom and the ability to be mobile. But it also needs to have security, which comes from your constant connection and linking to a local church congregation. Even if you are extremely wealthy and you feel it would be a bother for you to be a member of a congregation, I am warning you that you are wrong. Every one of you needs to have church congregational interaction. And even if that interaction is done internationally, it must be there to cover you.

There are members of my congregation that live in Canada, Australia, Asia, Europe, and often move weekly from place to place. Each one of these people receives spiritual covering in the arrow area of apostolic prophetic, evangelistic pastoring, and teaching. All of these coverings are functioning and giving them a surety in their lives that leads to a bountiful future. Being mobile in your communication with God and your functioning of all of the defined applications He is giving you access to is extremely important. At the same time, make sure you are connected with God’s security.

One of the members of my church is currently living in Paris, France. Daily she communicates with me about spiritual issues that she is doing in France. My function with her is that of a pastor and to provide security covering. But of course that security is operated completely by the power of the Holy Spirit who’s all seeing eyes watch everything. If God tells me about something about a person, it is easy for me to just communicate what He told me and it is quickly taken care of.

Many of our old ideas about function, distance, and accessibility are changing daily by the power of God. Enjoy God’s new mobility that He is providing free to you and your family, because at the same time He is covering you with incredible security.

“The Spiritual Pursuit Of Perfection”


Monday Morning Blog: “What Is Man That You Are Even Mindful Of Him?”

By Richard Gazowsky

Actually, I have wanted to write about this subject for a long time because perfection is something I had spent a large portion of my life trying to accomplish but had not been able to achieve. For a large section of my adult life I even gave up my pursuit of perfection. I just shrugged my shoulders and said, “This is, well, I guess good enough.”

It wasn’t until three years ago, in 2011, that God spoke to me and said, “Richard, I want you to be perfect, even as My Father in heaven is perfect.” Right after this the highly respected and revered Prophet Timothy Snodgrass prophesied to me almost the same words, “Richard, God is calling you to personal perfection.” You can see the quandary that hit my mind because personal perfection was a pursuit that I had given up on the as unachievable. Now I was been instructed by God to be perfect like God’s perfect. The question in my mind was almost more than I could bear.

Around this same time I had three near-death experiences. Each time I found myself laying on a hospital gurney, faced with the question, “Am I even going to live another day?” To be honest with you, in each one of these experiences I had absolutely no fear of death. But I did have an overwhelming sense of surrendering everything to God, including my will to have my own way regarding “hidden” dinners. I desired to do God’s perfect will, but it seemed so hard to achieve. Then the Lord simply spoke to me this simple command, “Richard, just do what I tell you to do every day”.

I was well aware of the famous scripture “Man should not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” But now what Jesus was simply telling me was that the road to perfection is found in obeying the commands He tells me every day. Wow! This seemed pretty simple! And is it not so, that the greatest accomplishments done by mankind are usually just as simple?

This all came to a head about three months ago. I finally came to the conclusion that I needed to live every moment of my life in complete and perfect obedience to exactly what God has instructed to do for that day. At the end of the day I could lay down at my bed at home, cuddle my pillow, and think, “Wow! Today I did exactly what the Lord asked me to do!”

Instantly that feeling that I had been searching for all of my young life, of coming into perfection, began pouring like warm oil over my entire body and giving me an internal childlike fuzzy really good feeling that I have pleased the Lord today. It felt so good I never wanted that sense of enjoyment to go away. I realize that this was the thing I was after all of my life ~ perfection in Christ!

The very next day it got better, the following day it got even better, and the day after that it got wonderful, the next day stupendous, the following day fantastic, the day after that super fantastic, the next day unbelievably supernaturally great, and on and on. I understood that the prophet Isaiah was so accurate when he said, “Of His kingdom and increase there shall be no end!”

These fantastic daily experiences of perfection have now been going on in my personal life for about 3 1/2 months. And I believe that it is going to last for the rest of my life. I just can’t wait for each new day and the experiences that are going to be so wonderful. Each day I look for His pearl of great price ~ a surprise that Jesus has waiting for me every day. What a perfect day!!

God is currently dealing with me on the concept of perfection based on quality and quantity. The only comparison that I can properly use in this context is that of a professional sous chef that learns that there are many factors that go into making an exquisitely prepared masterpiece meal (or can I say perfect cuisine). It is this level of perfection that God is having me seek after.

Of course I mean on a personal level. I am not talking about cooking, but about the normal business events of life. I’m discovering that when I go to business meetings I should exactly measure what I’m about to talk about. I should only speak the words God tells me to say, even though I might think I know more about a particular subject. I must limit what I am saying to precisely what God has instructed me. I’m finding that this is perfect obedience.

Then, like a good chef, I must wait until the meal is properly prepared, heated, and served, so that the meeting is finished at the right time ~ when every person involved in the agreement and is at the right temperature so they can mix correctly when the meeting is over. This level of perfection makes agreements that will last not only for a lifetime, but down to multiple generations. Remember, of His kingdom and increase there shall be no end.

I feel this is the kind of perfection that the Father is designing to happen in everybody’s life. He wants you to continue obeying His will so that you can live the perfect life, have the perfect family, the perfect job, the perfect church, and perfect everything! And of course the perfect future, which leads to the perfect forever.

In conclusion of this subject of perfection, it is important to understand that this is where the operation of the applications of the fruit of the Spirit become incredibly necessary. The nine applications of the fruits of the Spirit truly are the refining process that brings perfection to a complete operational place.

In other words, the nine applications are the essence of perfection in operation in your daily activity. They are given to you by God through the gift of the Holy Spirit to do one thing in your life and that is to perfect you. Now go out and have fun doing His wonderful perfection each day!

Faith ~ The Backbone Of Miracles


Monday Morning Blog: “Windows In Time”

By Richard Gazowsky

Faith is discussed so much in the Bible that sometimes we forget that it is actually a fruit of the Spirit (in other words an application that operates inside our human interface). The Bible uses many symbols to describe what faith is. Some examples are: a seed, something that is hoped for, the spoken word, a prophetic action, a mountain-moving force, and of course a fruit of the Spirit.

Something very real is that faith is actually a software application that must be run for you to experience its power and effect. Faith is a software that mixes with every application that runs in your system interface. For instance, someone can say a word with faith, but also without faith. The apostle Paul commented on this program ability of faith when he said, “the Word of God did not profit them because it was not mixed with faith.”

Another way to look at this, is that faith is a spiritual alloy that when mixed with the steel of your words becomes a solid framework that you can build incredible structures upon. Jesus said, “My words are Spirit and they are life.” Here He recognizes the importance of mixing faith in every word that you speak out loud.

This spiritual mixing becomes more intricate and intense as your words increase in power and an anointing effect upon situations. Words which you speak, that are mixed with the powerful element of faith, will multiply if you also add temperance, meekness, long-suffering, gentleness ~ and then joy and peace on top of them all.

This divine process is like a spiritual cocktail mix of all nine fruits of the Spirit, which empowers every word that is spoken out of your mouth. Now let us deal with the substance of these words that you speak. The apostle Paul said it this way, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

When Paul used “word” in this Scripture, it is the Greek word rhmea: which is translated as the spoken fresh word of God. This means that every word that comes out of your mouth with the power of faith, must be given to you fresh from God. Then your words will have the power of faith ~ creating and building everything that you touch.

Now I come to the real stickler regarding this subject: faith is not something that works by convenience or flows with your predetermined plan. Even Jesus the Son of God had to wait four days, until Lazarus was completely dead, for the miracle of faith to occur.

Let me take a moment and simplify the entire equation of faith I have been discussing. Wait upon God for every minute detail. Remember that the Scripture says, “Man should not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from God.” It is simply hearing and obeying. Faith is such an intricate operation in the technological realm of the Spirit that you must have point-by-point fine heavenly guidance assist you in every element.

To sum it all up: it’s the obedience of a little child. Matter-of-fact, the more intelligent, sophisticated, and mature a person is, the more their obedience needs to become simple, like a child. This is the faith that moves mountains, nations ~ even planets and galaxies…

“Peace ~ The Application That Synchronizes”


Monday Morning Blog: “The Nine Fruits Of The Spirit: Applications To Give You Access To The Galaxies”

By Richard Gazowsky

To understand how the application called peace operates, you must understand that the presence of its power is used to completely control a situation. The power of peace allows multiple opposing forces to synchronize. Many times in my own household, when my wife Sandy was alone with the children, there were situations where things got a little out of control. This would change as soon as Sandy said, “Dad’s coming home.” The intense argument between the siblings would immediately calm down. When I came home from work the children would be extremely peaceful, even though I would still have to deal with the earlier conflict that had transpired.

Peace does not mean the absence of conflict. Instead, peace is the presence of power. During the Cold War between Russia and the United States, there was immense tension and constant conflict. Russia had amassed a huge army of spies that had clandestinely placed agents into the high offices of Europe and the United States. During this time there was little peace and world tension was so high that the most popular timepiece looked at by the people of the world was the “doomsday clock”, ticking closer every day to the explosion of midnight.

Two basic things ended the tension. Ronald Reagan was given a secret list, which included the complete list of 250 KGB officers stationed under legal cover in embassies around the world, and they were able to be arrested in less than a week. Around this same time Reagan launched the Strategic Defense Initiative, or the “Star Wars” space defense system. This presence of the United States’ power literally caused the Iron Curtain around the Communist nations to dissolve into ashes.

This is a vivid example of how peace was achieved on a world-wide basis. It also explains how the application of peace works inside of your human interface. The presence of God is a force of power that can control every thing that affects you personally today, yesterday, and forever. If we let Him, He’ll synchronize everything around us and give us perfect peace.

When I was a young man I used to drive large 40-foot-long buses with huge diesel engines shifted by gearboxes that had to be hand-synchronized by the driver. This was called “double clutching”. Here is a simple explanation of the process: the engine would be going fast in a low gear and the gears would be spinning quickly. When I went into a higher gear the engine would need to go slowly as it pulled the bus into the higher gear. This required me to let out the clutch and use the slowing of the engine to wind the heavy gears down so they would be going the same speed as the engine. This physical synchronization by the driver required some skill. The more skilled the driver was, the smoother the ride. God moves in our lives in this same way, and allows the application of peace to smooth out changing of gears, like the transmission of promotion for instance.

Many of you reading this today have been studying the principles of the Holy Spirit App Store and know there are multiple applications that will be running at the same time as the application of peace. Kindness and temperance are two powerful applications, which can make the transition that peace is bringing you through even smoother. The prophet Isaiah put it this way: “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee”. Isaiah says peace is a result of a person’s mind being stayed constantly upon the Lord.

I call this running an internal “God-filter”. Imagine having a pair of very stylish God-filter glasses that you wear as you look at life. If you sense in the slightest way that God doesn’t approve, you simply look away, wipe the dust off your feet, and move on to something that is pleasing to your God-filter glasses. At first this may sound unusual, but believe me, I’ve found it’s the only way to live. As we do this we will find that every day, hour, minute, and even every second is an incredible celebration of peace.

The presence of such tranquility in your mind and spirit free you for innovation and expansion. Now that we are discovering the true source of the Creator ~ the source of His perfection must be big! This is why the source of our obedience to His original word “to be fruitful and multiply” is so vitally important. As we let God direct our lives, we will achieve an endless supply of perfect wonderment.

Allow God’s perfect peace to synchronize your daily life. It’s incredible how you will find pleasure in this godly perfection. Jesus said these words, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Something that I have personally noticed among my wealthy friends is their enjoyment of things that operate in perfect synchronization. For example, I admire the Rolls Royce and its handcrafted perfection. I have watched over the years as this majestic machine continues to increase in value. I can assure you, God Himself admires this type of quality and perfection.

Throughout the Bible, when a man’s life was perfectly synchronized with the Lord, God blessed him with all the things that wealthy people enjoy. Our desire to be wealthy is not wrong. In fact, it is very, very right! We need to realize that perfect peace is the doorway to it. It’s up to you and I to let peace synchronize our lives completely.

Joy – God’s Sure Secure Erase


Monday Morning Blog: “Understanding The Holy Spirit’s Memory Backup System”

By Richard Gazowsky

Joy is one of the leading applications that operate inside your Holy Spirit interface. Understanding its ability to enhance other applications is the primary concern in our understanding of more advanced spiritual interfaces. The Scripture lumps joy with two other applications that are extremely powerful ~ love and peace. Most of us understand why the application of love is the most powerful of all, but right next to it is joy.

Joy is an application inside your spirit that has the unique ability of erasing all bad applications that have been tormenting you. For example, a young mother with an L’Oreal-style look wipes the slight perspiration from her brow as she enters into a San Francisco advertising firm’s conference room. For she had just noticed her little boy had spilt milk on her velvet skirt, her friend entering the conference room thinks she is making twice as much commission as she’s supposed to receive on the project.

Then suddenly her boss enters the room and fills it with stress because he wants final reports done now, though they are not due for two weeks. Not to mention the television that had earlier reported on a bad economic forecast, along with higher taxes, right after she remembered her husband’s mean uncle wanted to visit their house in the summer. After the stressful meeting was finally over she tore out of the office to go to escape to lunch. But unexpectedly her son called and told her a funny story ~ which erased all the earlier bad applications.

Let’s take a moment to analyze what happened. The spot on her skirt started running the application of pride, her friend stirred up the application of jealousy, her boss initiated hurry and agitation, the television enforced worry, and thinking about the ornery uncle caused dread and fear. But, lo and behold, the application of joy did the miraculous job of securely erasing the effects of all the bad applications. That is one level of power that you can see joy operate in, but let’s look at a new dimension of power from the same application.

Joy is also the faith attractor. No wonder Jesus caused the mourners to go out of the room where He was about to raise someone from the dead. And doesn’t the Scripture say, “The joy of the Lord is our strength?” Faith is the substance of all supernatural miracles. It is the driving force and power behind all of them. Joy is the magnet that draws faith to you. In fact, joy is so important it can change the entire future of a nation!

That is why evil spirits amplify complaints, worry, and agitation ~ never joy. If you can learn the secret of the application of joy, you will find it drives you into having the attitude of a little child, and with such a mindset you can receive faith that moves mountains. Yes, with this application running constantly in your spirit nothing will be impossible.

I have recently had inventions given to me by the Holy Spirit that have been so exciting, they have brought me back to dreams I had when I was a little child playing in my parent’s backyard. As I filled out some of the technical applications for filing the patents, I began to feel giddy joy bubbling inside my tummy. It was so exciting because it was feelings that I hadn’t experienced for 55 years! You can just imagine the primeval joy that was surging through my entire system. At that point I realized it was a fountain of youth pouring out of me.

Yes, this is what the application of joy does inside of you. Maybe when some of you read this, your erase app was so secure you actually started worrying about forgetting something. But remember the Holy Spirit’s notification center. If you ask God to worry about your problems, then you no longer have to. I agree it takes a lot of faith to do all this, but wow is it worth it because it really works! Let Him do everything for you!

God is the Concierge of all concierges ~ if you will let Him plan every day of your life. This is why the apostle Paul tried to get us to learn to rest in Christ: “For as long, then, as that promise of resting in Him pulls us on to God’s goal for us, we need to be careful that we’re not disqualified. We received the same promises as those people in the wilderness, but the promises didn’t do them a bit of good because they didn’t receive the promises with faith. If we believe, though, we’ll experience that state of resting. But not if we don’t have faith. Remember that God said, ‘Exasperated, I vowed, “They’ll never get where they’re going, never be able to sit down and rest.”‘ God made that vow, even though He’d finished His part before the foundation of the world. Somewhere it’s written, ‘God rested the seventh day, having completed His work,’ but in this other text He says, ‘They’ll never be able to sit down and rest.’ So this promise has not yet been fulfilled. Those earlier ones never did get to the place of rest because they were disobedient.”

Joy is the perfect release of resting. When you enter into joy your entire being is trusting God for everything. Just take a couple of days and test this application of joy. Let it run completely through your system for that relatively short period of time, and then watch the effects that it has on your whole life ~ and also how it attracts faith into your spirit. I think it’s going to amaze you on how quickly it accomplishes its goal!
