Golden Gate Opens in San Francisco: Impacts the World

Prophetic Word for San Francisco and the West Coast

December 15, 2011

I have had a series of spiritual experiences and prophetic dreams that are all very positive and are intended to bring hope and encouragement. Although this prophetic word is centered on San Francisco and the West Coast, what is about to happen will impact the entire world.

Still in Transition

Don’t be discouraged if you are not hearing God clearly or don’t have a strong direction for what to do next. We are still in a transitional time that will last through the first few months of 2012. This is a time to review any prophetic words and promises that God has given you. Pray for wisdom going into the new year and watch for new opportunities.

New Move of God Coming to San Francisco

On 11/11/11 I had a dream that a strong spiritual wind was blowing from Southern California to the north. In my dream most people were not aware that this time of refreshing was already happening in the spirit. Then without warning, the wind suddenly shifted and began to blow from north to south. The wind of the Spirit was now coming from San Francisco to impact Southern California. End of dream.

This change of wind direction is similar to how the last revival in the U.S. started. In 1971, The Jesus People Movement with Lonnie Frisbee started in San Francisco moved south to Southern California and then impacted the world.

I have been having a lot of dreams and spiritual experiences regarding a new move of God coming to the West Coast of the U.S. like a huge spiritual wave or wind. It will first impact San Francisco and then the world. From November 17–20 my wife and I were ministering in the San Francisco Bay Area and God gave me the go-ahead to release these prophetic words. This meeting was one my more powerful experiences. Something opened in the Heavens. You can listen to it on my podcast. Click on “Prophetic Word for San Francisco and the West Coast”:

God showed me that many people have been watching and waiting for God’s judgment against San Francisco. Some have prayed Psalm 56:7 “Because of their wickedness do not let them escape; in your anger, God, bring the nations down.”

But God says that He has indeed found some that have prayed and cried out on behalf of San Francisco and the West Coast. These intercessors have been literally crying and claiming Psalm 56:8–9, “Record my misery; list my tears on your scroll—are they not in your record? Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me.”

Tears in a Bottle

On November 17 when I arrived to the first session of the San Francisco Bay Area meetings, there was a mist falling over the building. I sensed that the mist was God’s tears being shed over His people in the area. That night I had an open vision of a man weeping over San Francisco. An angel was standing in front of the man capturing his tears in a bottle. When the angel touched the bottle the tears turned into one drop of liquid gold from Heaven. The angel poured the liquid anointing onto San Francisco and the surrounding area.

There have been people crying out to God but the enemy has made them think that God has forgotten their tears. God has not forgotten and there will be a great change happening shortly. What I saw happening with the tears of intercession was that although it was centered in San Francisco, it is also happening in other cities around the world.

I was one of those intercessors from 1988–1998 that literally cried over San Francisco. There were times when it seemed hopeless to reach this city that is loved by God. But “Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy” Psalm 126:5.

Wave of the Spirit Hits San Francisco Bay Area

A golden gate is opening in San Francisco! I have had several dreams over the past couple of months in which I have seen a big wave of the Spirit hitting the San Francisco Bay Area. One of the waves hit Candlestick Park (49ers football stadium). God said that as a result of this new move, San Francisco would become “a candlestick of light for the world to see.” Watch and wait with expectation because God will be releasing new things on a greater level after March 4, 2012.

Angel is Ready to Dance

I had a spiritual experience at Rosh Hashanah (September 28th) in which I saw an angel that was in position and about to dance. I was shown that when this angel dances it will shake things open and release finances, favor, and an anointing to bring people into God’s Kingdom. In the experience, we all waited with anticipation and when the angel danced, the ground shook and golden coins filled the streets. This is symbolic of the Kingdom finances that will be needed to impact the world for God. This included the media, high-tech and entertainment industries. In the vision, I saw the angel standing in a place that looked like a combination of San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Hollywood. These are places that have the appearance of evil but God wants to use them to impact the world.

A Sign from Heaven

I am always cautious about giving prophetic words of a larger magnitude as many people have been suffering from prophetic disappointments. Hope deferred can make your heart sick (Proverbs 13:12). So at the end of the San Francisco meetings, I asked God to give us a sign that we would know He is with us (Psalm 86:17). The next day as we drove south on Highway 101 from San Francisco, a bright rainbow literally followed to the left of our car for several hours. Then as we entered King City, CA, it turned into one of the most brilliant and full double rainbows we have ever seen. It was significant that it was a double rainbow over “King City” as God is making a covenant to bring a double blessing to the Kingdom.

Angels of Strength and Preparation

On November 27th, I felt the presence of angels in my house but they were different from those normally around me. An angel spoke to me Ephesians 3:16, “I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being.”  It was obvious the angels had come to give strength and to prepare for what lies ahead. This is happening to many people everywhere right now. Trust that you are being prepared and strengthened.

Be Prepared and Don’t Get Distracted

I believe that much of what I am seeing from God is very symbolic and the new move coming to the San Francisco area will impact the entire West Coast, Hollywood and the world. It’s time to cry out for our cities everywhere, asking God to pour out His power and love and to have mercy over judgment. That being said, it is possible that there might be earthquakes but that comes with living on a fault line. We should all be prepared and have extra food and water on hand no matter where we live. And most of all, do not be afraid.

In many of the experiences I had, there were a great deal of people who had become so distracted with their own life situations that they missed the day of visitation. Do not get distracted away from God’s greater purposes. Ask God to give you “eyes to see” into each situation that happens to you.

God is passionately in love with you and people everywhere. This truly is an amazing time to be alive. Get ready for things to shake open and take off in 2012.

    I am from the south bay near San Jose.. I was wondering if the
    Lord gave you any specific insight into which ways you believed the
    Spirit was about to move or was moving? Ive been hearing some
    similar things and am interested if you had any more insight you might
    be willing to share…

    Quick story… I had a dream about one week before the Japanese
    earthquake/tsunami about “being asleep on the wall”… that was the
    imagery in my dream. And that my “boss” was correcting me for being
    asleep. It was night time and the front door was opened. Anyone could
    have come in and robbed the place…

    When I have prophetic dreams the Lord almost always confirms it with a
    scripture usually that morning or day… Well right after that dream,
    I awoke to my friend texting me saying that his wife had just gone
    into labor! so I thought it interesting timing and began to pray and
    read the word…

    In my reading plan that day was 1 Thessalonians 5:

    “Now concerning how and when all this will happen, dear brothers and sisters, we don’t really need to write you. For you know quite well that the day of the Lord’s return will come unexpectedly, like a thief in the night. When people are saying, “Everything is peaceful and secure,” then disaster will fall on them as suddenly as a pregnant woman’s labor pains begin. And there will be no escape. But you aren’t in the dark about these things, dear brothers and sisters, and you won’t be surprised when the day of the Lord comes like a thief. For you are all children of the light and of the day; we don’t belong to darkness and night. So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be clearheaded. Night is the time when people sleep and drinkers get drunk. But let us who live in the light be clearheaded, protected by the armor of faith and love, and wearing as our helmet the confidence of our salvation.”

    The day after you released this word I felt lef by the Lord to come to your blog for some unknown reason. I listened to your podcast where you shared that word and was quite shocked to hear that same specific word reagarding many intercessors being asleep…

    So, I’ve been getting a few indications that the Lord is going to release something in this area and I was just curious if you would be willing to share if you had any specific insight into what that might look like? Or areas in which we should be expecting it?

    thanks and thanks for this word…

    Hey Doug,

    Maybe you’ve already seen this, but on Dec 28th NPR did a story about porpoises showing up in the San Francisco bay after 60 years, and scientists weren’t sure why. In light of your prophetic word, I couldn’t help wonder if God was enacting a word play–God has porpoises (purposes) for San Francisco. 😉

    hey, i wanted share this with you…i just now read your blog (the word about the wave coming to SF). the day before, i had a dream in which i was walking in the bay area. at one point, a man comes up to me and starts telling me about a great wave that is coming there, and that it has been spoken or told about or reported in “50,000 different ways” over the years.

    another interesting thing about the dream is that i was in a restaurant when the man told me about the 50,000 ways the wave has been heralded. and i noticed that all the tables were covered (very neatly) with newspapers.

    i am not totally sure what the entirety of the dream means, but thought i’d post it – it may be a confirmation.

      Lon, there are a lot of people getting similar things from God right now. Thanks for the confirmation!

    Thanks so much for publishing this. In 2009, (during the time folks were coming to SFO to declare judgement) I had a dream. Standing on Ocean Beach I looked over the Avenues up and I saw downtown. I watched as a large Tsunami Wave came out of the downtown area. It rose up into a very large wave. The Lord spoke to me, “no the wave is not coming into SFO, it will come out of SFO. And the whole world will see it”.
