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.
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.
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.

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.”
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
