Turning to the disciples, He said privately, “Blessed are the eyes which see the things you see, for I say to you, that many prophets and kings wished to see the things which you see, and did not see them, and to hear the things which you hear, and did not hear them” (Luke 10:23-24, NASB).

Gary began with a picture of a new throttle cording (wire) – that GOD was giving me a new connection to HIS power. That GOD was getting ready to push down on the gas! The old throttle wires were made of steel and the new ones are made of a strong, flexible, plastic cording – that does not fray, that things do not cling to it or get caught and it lasts much longer. (As I am not mechanically inclined, I do not know what a throttle wire looks like). Then he began to pray for the new connection to GOD’s power, that I would be moving faster than ever before. That I would be like GODSPEED. That the things that have tried to cling to me, hang on to me and fray me would have to let go. HE continued to pray repeatedly about going faster and faster and faster than light speed even, that I would be GODSPEED. Then he spoke about the call of GOD on my life, being a forerunner, preparing the way, living a fasted life, others not understanding, others not being able to see, others not accepting me – even so, GOD has given me HIS sword, HIS understanding, HIS discernment, HIS eyes to see, HIS ears to hear, HIS plow, HIS armor, HIS grace, HIS mercy, and HIS power to go forward. Then he prayed again, “You must go forward in GOD, you must go forward, you must go forward, you cannot stop, you cannot slow down, you cannot wait, you must go forward, you must go forward in GODSPEED! You must.”
