About the Letters


My name is Gary.  I invited Jesus to come into my heart in 1972, but it wasn't until 1987 that I began hearing His still small voice gently speaking to my heart. I was so astounded by what was happening that I diligently sought Him in quiet prayer time, hoping to hear more. I listened intently, trying to be obedient to what He asked me to do, and sometimes I shared what I could remember with my friends. Nine years passed. I never wrote anything down, in spite of many encouragements from my friends to do so.

As far as I can remember, the Lord never instructed me to write anything down and I did not want to. I had an aversion for writing, because, years before, I had written a friend what was intended to be a short note of encouragement about God and before it was finished, 14 hours had passed and the note was 24 pages long. I don't think that he read more than a few pages.
"I'm Calling You" by Greer
Finally, in 1995, a good friend, named Bob, told me that it was a sin not to write down the teachings that the Lord was speaking to me, since by the time that I would have an opportunity to share the teachings with someone, I could no longer remember the details of what I had heard. I thought about it and agreed with him. I made the decision to write down whatever the Spirit of Christ spoke to my heart, the first chance that I got, so that I would not forget whatever I heard. I did this after-the-fact writing for about 2 weeks, making about 15 entries, usually less than a page long.
On September 12, 1995, I was living in Fort Worth, Texas. One day, while I was downtown, the Lord spoke to me. Later that evening, when I got home, I wrote down the short paragraph that the Lord had spoken about my wife. As soon as I had finished writing the paragraph, the Lord started speaking to me, again, telling me to continue writing what I was hearing. It ended up being a 3 page letter, dictated by the Spirit of Christ in me.

I believe that these letters were written for the comfort, exhortation, and edification of the body of Christ. Even though the first letter and quite a few others had personal words to me spoken in them, Jesus has explained that there are many of His sheep that will be comforted by the same words. They were all basically spoken in a still small voice within me. All I did was copy down each word as it came forth, one at a time usually; often faintly seeing the printed word in my spirit while hearing it. I had almost no idea what was going to be spoken at any time, not even in the middle of sentences.
"Follow Me" by Greer
The apostles and other inspired writers of the Bible usually paid for their faith with their lives. I have never shed one drop of my blood for Jesus' sake. The persecutions that I have endured for the sake of my faith in Christ are nothing compared to the trials that they all went through that proved their faithfulness and their holiness. These letters, although inspired, are of course not even close to being Scripture; however, they are Scriptural. From Genesis through Revelation the Lord is consistently admonishing us to hearken diligently and obey His voice. A very short list of examples follows:
Genesis 3:9, "Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, 'Where are you?' So he said, 'I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid . . .'"

Pro 8:33-35, Hear instruction and be wise, and do not disdain it. Blessed is the man that listens to me, watching daily at My gates, waiting at the posts of My doors, for whoever finds me finds life and obtains favor from the LORD.

Isaiah 55:2-3, . . . Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in abundance. Incline your ear, and come to Me, hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you . . . the sure mercies of David.

Jeremiah 7:23, But this is what I commanded them, saying, "Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people. And walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you."

John 7:38, He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.
John 10:3, . . . the sheep hear His voice; and He calls His own sheep by name.
John10:4, . . . the sheep . . . know His voice
John 10:16, . . . they will hear My voice 

 John10:27, My sheep hear My voice, and I know them and they follow Me.
John 16:25, These things I have spoken to you in figurative language; but the time is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figurative language, but I will tell you plainly about the Father.
John 18:37, . . . Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.

Revelation 2:11, He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. . .
Rev 3:20, Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

If you find anything in the letters from the Lord that does not line up with the full counsel of God's word and love, then obviously that part of the writing is not from God. I have judged the letters from my perspective and limited knowledge of the Holy Bible. You will judge them from your perspective.

"Jesus Sunset" exalting the name Jesus
Should you come across a small portion of a letter that you think is questionable, please try to keep from immediately throwing the baby out with the bath water There have been times when I had my doubts about a phrase in a few of these letters from the Lord, but then, later, I would run across Bible scriptures that I had not remembered that completely satisfied my soul that these letters are in agreement with the full counsel of God's written word. The most difficult times for me to be obedient to keep writing whatever I heard in my spirit was in the middle of sentences that sounded totally unscriptural. I would have to quickly bat away the fear of being crazy and then return to listening intently, and then, sometimes, it was the very next word spoken by the Lord that would completely turn around the context of the sentence, making it totally scriptural and therefore acceptable as truth.
There were virtually no mistakes in any of these letters--that is, I did not delete, cross out, or change any word, sentence, or phrase in any of them and I did not move any paragraphs around. Every letter starts with a quotation mark and ends with a quotation mark, because I was simply writing down whatever I heard the Spirit of Christ within me speak. Many words, I did not know how to spell, nor did I know the meanings of some. Very unfortunately, I had to do the punctuating, the capitalization, and the paragraphing, when/after they were typed, because when I tried to do those things as I was copying down the words, then I had a hard time keeping my mind from being distracted; and therefore, the Spirit of Christ would stop speaking. He finally taught me to just copy the words and do the rest, later.

The fact is, I did not know how to do any of these things well. I originally placed a lot of exclamation marks in the letters because I was and still am excited about everything that God says in them, but as time permits, most of them will be removed, because I personally prefer to read the letters as if there are almost no exclamation marks in them. The Lord almost never raised His voice while speaking the letters, although sometimes I heard more distinctly than at other times. Feel free to repunctuate them for your own personal preference.

"Winter's Warmth" detail
When the Lord first started doing this, I thought it was the strangest thing that I had ever heard. Now, since the Holy Spirit has brought to my attention an abundance of scriptures in the Bible, concerning the importance of writing down the words spoken to the prophets, etc., it seems to be more of a natural thing to expect from a person that walks by faith, as opposed to something strange. In the first couple years, since the letters started, I have personally met more than a dozen people that the Lord is using in a similar manner, but I believe that there are thousands and probably millions that He will use, if they will only begin listening and writing what He tells them.

These letters from the Lord are prophetic writings. They are a combination of the gifts of the word of knowledge, the word of wisdom and prophecy that are in operation, when they are being written. (See 1 Corinthians 12 : 7-10)   I suggest that you allow the Holy Spirit to guide you to the particular dates that He points out to you to read, rather than only reading them in chronological order.  Rest assured that every letter fulfills the major purpose of prophesying, ". . . he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men." (1 Corinthians 14 : 3)

Peace be with you,

When I write on my own, without the Lord dictating the words to me, I am and always have been a very slow writer. It takes me an average of 60 minutes/page (and sometimes nearly 180 minutes per page) to write, even when I know the subject matter that I want to write about. When I myself write something, then there are always all sorts of errors, deletions, changes, and rearrangements in sentence structure, verb tense, and paragraphing, etc., that need to be done, so that my thoughts have a chance of making sense, when they are being read. BUT one of the miraculous things about the letters from the Lord is that they only take 4 to 12 minutes per page to write.

Several things about these letters from the Lord that I consider to be totally miraculous:

* They are always in agreement with the Holy Bible scriptures, as far as I know. (I've been reading the Bible for 40 years and consistently studying it and praying for the last 28 years.)
* They are written with virtually no mistakes in an average speed of 7 minutes/page--four minutes per page, if I scribble so fast that even I can barely read my terrible hand writing. (College Rule paper takes about 10 minutes per page, when taking my time.)
* They deeply touch hearts. I'll never forget the time the Lord directed me to read a letter to a friend's sister who he had just introduced to me. She broke down, sobbing and crying crocodile tears because it touched her so much.
* They always make sense, even though many of them were written late at night or in the wee hours of the morning, when I was so tired that I could barely keep my eyes open. In fact, one time [09/30/95am(1:15)] I was so tired that I literally fell asleep at least twice while writing at a table and sitting on a hard chair. The nods would awaken me to the Lord's encouragement to continue writing the letter. Somehow we managed to finish it, but I went to bed upset. I was certain that the letter must have been all messed up and could not have made sense, because I was not coherent, but fading in and out of sleep while writing. In the morning, I dreaded reading the letter. I was afraid that I had ruined the flawless record and there was nothing I could do about it. So, reluctantly, I read it and was amazed to see that it made perfect sense.
{LOL. . . it took me well over two hours to write just this P.S., even though I was wide awake (thanks to a two hour nap) and I thought that I knew exactly what I wanted to say!}

Thank You for Your letters Lord Jesus! I adore You.

God bless you!

  1. Hi, Gary...you just dropped my daughter off in downtown Dallas at Top Golf. She texted me from your Uber car, then called me after you dropped her off. She said, "Mom, I think I just met an angel sent from God!"

    She has been in a bad place in her life recently and has moved 1200 miles away from Dallas to live with me in Virginia. She was raised in the church, but ran away from everything having to do with the church or God after her father had an affair with my best friend in the church choir. While she has been here with me, I've been trying to pour into her...trying to convince her of the Truth of the Gospel and the love of God...seemingly to no avail.

    Then she met you! She was so excited when she called! She truly was touched by your testimony. Thank you so much. Thank you for following God's plan for your life and for sharing His truth and love for us all.

    You have made a difference in one young woman's life, of that I'm sure!

    Have a blessed day,
    A Grateful Mother

  2. Dear Grateful Mother,
    What you shared brings tears to my eyes every time I read it. You are a blessing. God bless you and your daughter, in Jesus' name
