  The Vision - Gen 28: 11-13, 16-17

 11 So he came to a certain place and stayed there all night, because the sun had set. And he took one of
 the stones of that place and put it at his head, and he lay down in that place to sleep. 12 Then he
 dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven: and there the
 angels of GOD were ascending and descending on it. 13 And behold, the Lord stood above it and said: I AM
 the LORD GOD of Abraham your father and the GOD of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and
 your descendants.

 16 Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said "Surely the LORD is in this place, and I did not know it." 17 And
 he was afraid and said "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of GOD, and this is
the gate way to heaven!"

  Gen 28: 11-13, 16-17




During a worship service in 1988, the power of God knocked me to the ground. I laid there under the anointing for an hour and half. While being under the anointing I heard these words You build it, they will come.

A year later I resigned from my position as one of the co-pastors of a large church, where Cynthia and I had served for over ten years. After some time, we started  our own church, believing that the word I had received—‘You build it, they will come”—meant that people would come and fill up the church.

From day one, the Presence of God was with us. Many miracles were manifested in our midst. We never lacked the presence of God. Some drove hours each week just to come to drink from this river of His presence.


One day, after seven years of enjoying the continuous tangible presence of the Lord in our midst, we heard the Lord say, Throw your net on the other side.” As we felt the Lord was calling us to a different work, we quickly surrendered up the pastorship of our church. In this yet another new phase of our journey with God, we received many more words and confirmation regarding building a dwelling place for God.

Over time, we have come to learn that what God really wants is a place which is built according to His own purposes and design. The plans and blueprints must come from Him alone. We cant build this dwelling place of God using old models or according to our own perceptions.

The rich, tangible presence of God never left us. His Presence has continued to accompany us wherever He sent us to minister in congregations large and small, including most recently at the campuses of Trinity Western University in Langley, B.C., Canada. Even when the pre-teens and teenagers came forward to minister worship, the heavens were opened spectacularly. Our Lord was seen by several faithful witnesses coming into our midst enjoying worship from man, angels, saints, and all of creation. His tangible presence was richly in our midst.


One day, coming out of a grocery store, I heard the Lord say: When My people come together in the Dwelling Place, teach them My ways. Prepare the Bride for Me.

Through visitations from the Lord, from angelic messengers, and from saints from heaven, weve come to understand the nature and character of the Dwelling Place for God Cynthia and I have been commissioned to build.

  •   Over this Place will be an open heaven where angels and saints would ascend and descend

  •   In this dwelling place will be an atmosphere bringing transformation

  •   Change will take place peoples lives as saints and angels from heaven would come and work among us

  •   This is a place of preparation for the end time

  •   Continuous prayer will be a huge part of this Dwelling Place

  •   The altar of holiness will be established in our midst

  •   The Lord will teach His people about divine authority in this place

  •   The Lord would put His Name in this place

  •   The angelic realm will infuse this place as the will of the Lord is expressed and released

  •   People would come and experience the Kingdom of heaven

  •   The Dwelling Place will become Gods Resting Place, a place He would surely come because it is a place built solely and purely for Him


One of the specific words from the Lord to us was, Ive given you an anointing to carry Reformation and a Spirit of Revival.” In this 16-year walk of obedience to seek a Dwelling Place for God, a faith adventure which included spiritual assignments such as erecting spiritual altars that have been desecrated or have fallen into desolation, we have witnessed the indomitability of Gods will.

Indeed, Gods Will is going to be done and accomplished. He who sits on the heavens over all creation will do whatsoever pleases Him (Ps 115:3, 135:6).

 The Lord is releasing His divine blueprints step by step, phase by phase, as we continue to seek His mind. We see clearly how this is a special place where people can come and rest in God and experience the tangible presence of the Lord Himself.

Would you seek God on how you can become a co-laborer on this holy work with us from the start?

Cynthia and I have long been willing to lay down our lives and all our personal agenda in order for Gods Will to flow unhindered through us as servants worthy of the Eternal Kingdom.

We are asking God for people to link up with us by prayer and finances and skills to come together to build the Dwelling Place of the Lord.

Would you be willing to walk with us on this journey into the heart of our God? We bless you in the Name of the Lord!
