What is your 'God-Sized' Vision? Here's Johnny and my vision of a Christian Community and a Christian Nation within our Nation!

Too many people feel like they are saved, on their way to heaven. They're just waiting for the bus to pick them up.

God has a vision and calling for all of us. And, he wants us to reach the full measure of what he has planned for us!

This is our God sized vision:
Johnny and I have a strategy for the particular region we live in. We will be calling people from all over the US to come and work on advancing the Kingdom in this region this summer. This region is made up of dozens of little communities. Imagine...
...Street Preachers on the corner in every community and at every gathering.
...Imagine every church providing workers to talk to the crowds that always gather where street preaching occurs. Imagine people being stirred to go to church... some may never have attended, some may not have gone for years.
...Imagine every church being equipped to knit visitors into their fellowship: winning the lost and strengthen those who have drifted. (Did you know that typically only 5% of visitors stick? But with REAL training, they can keep 75% or more!)
...Imagine every church being equipped to disciple the new people. (Do you know that most churches/ministries just 'teach', they aren't sure how to 'train'?)
...Imagine in every neighborhood, there are 'missionaries' who rebuild community, who energize the believers to the activities above, and who energize a Prayer Tsunami.
...Imagine a Prayer Tsunami where every person in our community is prayed for by name and by need.
...Imagine the impact to the Kingdom if the church, instead of building it's own fellowship, leaders took seriously what the word 'church' means: a Christian gathering to BOTH worship God AND TO consider the welfare of the community & how to make disciplined, skilled followers everywhere, starting next door and on into the world. And, imagine if Churches took seriously the 'concept' of ONE body of Christ and actually FUNCTIONED like one body instead of like a bunch of individually owned 'Christian franchises.'

After we work in our community, we will see the focus on another community and another and another. The collection of these communities could very well emerge into a Christian nation within our Nation. With the trajectory of some of the political state of affairs, a holy nation might be more than just a 'good idea'. :-)

You know, passion is 'caught' rather than 'taught'. :-)

Let's share our passion and thus stir others!
Street preaching is an excellent way to get the Word out, because people can't ignore it! I've seen many YouTube videos on street preaching and people always take notice of street preachers, and many will start conversations with them. Demonstrations are another good way to get people's attention. Maybe do a reenactment from the Bible, like the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. Something that catches and holds people's emotions.
The vision, the goal of the Crowns that we receive and shall place at the feet is Jesus, belong to those who run the race but the hurdles we face has always been the hardest of obstacles. Even when Apostle John receive the Letters to the seven Churches, we see many divisions, many setbacks yet many rewards for those who will listen to the Lord of Glory. Many denominational Churches teach and preach salvation in Christ but refuse to have faith in receiving the Power from on high. Sure we can come together in a certain goal of reaching the lost but unless we get them filled and anointed with power by the Holy Spirit, Then we may fall in that category of where only 5% actually stay in the Church. If we as Christians will teach, preach, heal, and lay hands on those believers to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, just as the Apostles and the disciples of the early Church did, then we can and will experience a mighty and glorious harvest but it seems that unless we all agree in doctrinal truths, the wall of divisions remain, while the devil sits back and laughs. This is why I stand so strongly on teaching Kingship and Priesthood for every Born Again Believer in Christ! Yes, we preach the cross of Calvary, Yes, we preach the day of vengence, and the tribulation period but we also proclaim the Gospel of the coming kingdom of Christ on this earth for 1000 years. Jesus is now preparing Believers to rule and reign as true kings unto Him..Believers of all denominations need to know what it means to be anointed by Christ with the evidence of speaking in new tongues. They need to be taught how to walk in the spirit of God with the power and authority over all the works of the Devil and they need to know what it means to enter into the presense of God in praise and worship and to receive a living word of prophecy for their every day lives. They need to know how to apply their faith when it comes to receiving gifts of the spirit and how important it is to have the fruits of the Spirit of God and maturing in the ways of God as we bring glory to the name of our Brother and king Jesus. When we do this by applying the word of God in our own lives, God promises to give the increase.. People are hurting, people are seeking to fill the inner spiritual void with drugs, alcohol, gambling, sexual incounters and the lusts of all worldly pleasures, not knowing that it is Jesus they need. Yes, we need to come together unto Christ Jesus, with the Banner raised high that Jesus is The King of kings and the Lord of lords! And those who refuse the power and the message of the cross will make up the Apostate Church that will be ruled and governed by none other than the Antichrist himself, as He will unite all world Religions into a world global Order of both World Government and Religion. It is time and I am glad to see that your heart and Will is right in the Center of what the Holy Spirit is leading, along with those that God has called unto Himself for divine service in these last days! There is a holy fire burning within us and may the God of Glory burn off the chaff of carnality and allow our faith to be tried so that as it is tested, it may come forth from the fire as pure gold! Blessings
As everyone might know already, I am believing for difficult times ahead for the church. I've posted several times about the judgment of the church being upon us. During the time the church is being judged, we must respond in the way we are supposed to respond. Look at the first century church and how they responded. Remember that the first harvest on the day of Pentecost was during the feast of Passover. Of the 3,000 that believed that first day, many were pilgrims from all over the place. People sold second homes and gave the proceeds to the church to minister to the new believers. The church pulled together. And later, when the first persecution hit, the church, every body, went every where preaching the gospel.

In time of judgment, God is not looking for worship. He despises worship from people who will not obey Him. He is looking for those who will do His will. Those who won't are dead limbs that God will prune off. We are at the time when lip service will destoy entire congregations, and the Lord will not intervene. The church must DO WHAT HE COMMANDS or be cast off.

In addition to spreading the vision, we need to think in terms of implementing the vision. Some work needs to be done on the website. What's needed are resources for the vision, for theology and for motivation, which we already have. We also must have the means to put people together who HAVE resources and those who NEED resources - a clearing house not so much for the promulgation of the vision, but instead the infrastructure needed to implement the vision.

Some suggestions would be forums where people can go to find help with debt, with feeding their families, clothing distribution, food distribution. Others might be a forum to teach people how to budget, how to save their marriages, how to discipline their children, how to plant a garden, how to can food, how to dry and preserve food. Where to find garden plots, houses of refuge for people who are thrown out on the street, prophets rooms for preachers.

The list could be extremely long, but I think the website needs to be a clearing house not only for ideas, but for those who have gotten their marching orders and are moving out in obedience.

Getting people to agree to a vision is easy. Getting people to leave their comfort, pleasure, and ease, and enter into the harvest field to labor for the kingdom is another.

Let us think about what practical resources we can provide to those who are moving out. As marching orders are given to God's people, the church will not succeed, will not pass the judgment, if we do not support one another in every way possible.

For some, it means preaching. For others it means helping. Still others are called not to the front lines but to the trenches of prayer bathing those on the front lines with God's grace and power. Those who are financially well off, you have possibly the hardest charge. You must give beyond where it hurts. You must learn that tithing is no excuse for refusing to give to God. Pointing to your tithing when God asks you for sacrificial giving will not deliver you from the judgment of God. Any one who denies God His due in this period of time will meet with rapid judgment.

What we are being judged for is whether we are worthy of Jesus.

Mt 10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

We must respond with our lives if we want to be found worthy of Him. We who preach on campuses and streets know the fellowship of war. Every time we go out there is the possiblility of being killed. Many of my friends and associates have been assaulted, beaten, spat upon, arrested, and jailed. We have counted the cost and have decided that Jesus is worthy of our very lives.

For the most part, the church has never gotten to that point. The times of tribulation is here to test men's hearts. Those who will not lay their lives on the line will not enter into the Kingdom. We share in the Kingdom only if we share in the sufferings of Christ.

Ro 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

2Ti 2:12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:

So let this vision go forth, but let us make ourselves as resources for all those who are set on fire with their own visions.
I love your vision, Juanita! I also want to tell you how much I respect and appreciate all the love, time and effort you are putting in to Kingdominsight, as well as TeamSarah!
I know of one spiritual connection we all share and rarely talk about, and that's love of country. The future of America linked with our support of Israel, and God will judge us for shipping $900M to Hamas. But the real risk is losing faith in the final arc of freedom, the USA. We need to show our spiritual leaders that we do not wish the godless direction of Venezuela on our people. It is immoral to rob Peter to pay Paul, and that same simple dishonesty is compounded when we elect bureaucrats and lawyers to do it for us.

Is it somehow immodest to speak out against the immorality of government theft? Are we the conscious of America, or are we just another special interest group looking for freedoms rationed out by government? Churches, and spiritual organizations, not only have the power but the moral authority given directly to speak Truth towards the immorality that is taking place in current events. More than that, our kids are looking for direction, and if we do not stand up for what we believe is morally True, then perhaps our kids will go adrift and find their direction towards their nearest indoctrinated college professor.
Thanks, Carolyn!

YES, I CAN IMAGINE!!!!!!! Especially since I am made in the IMAGE of God Himself, which is the root of IMAGINE. Jesus spoke of His Kingdom inside the Roman and other world kingdoms. SO YES, we can have a Christian community within our physical community, and a Christian nation within our political nation. AND YES, we must begin at Jerusalem (Tioga County) before going outward to "Judea, Samaria, and the uttermost parts of the earth." After all, Jesus spoke continually of His Kingdom. Don't be surprised if our area's political leaders and even fellow Christians experience the same confusion now as they did back then.
I speak Blessings and Blessings on this endeavor.
This is a good practise, anything that will get people to believe in God is great, that is the first thing needed to get on the bus! I too think time is short, don't buy green bananas any more! People must feel their need! you know the story about the horse, if he isn't thursty you are wasting your time!
Thanks, Dave!

You shared this exciting vision with us last month, Juanita. God has truly given you a BIG heart for the lost and especially for your region of the country. I pray that people who do not have a vision but hoping God will give them a ministry will catch the fire you have and mobilize to help. Let's think of creative ways to 'get the word out' and make many Christians aware that they can have a viable ministry.

Blessings, Ginger
Thanks, Ginger. Did you hear we are planning a Summit meeting for our summer launch! Looking forward to great things!
