"Restoring the Vision" is an uncompromising call to victory through endurance and potential martyrdom for a church at the end of this age destined to demonstrate the wisdom of God (the cross of Jesus Christ) to the powers and authorities in the heavenly places. This is not a message of "gloom and doom" but rather of ultimate JOY and VICTORY. However, it is a call to endurance rather than early rapture. It is a call to the realization that Jesus came to defeat the works of the devil, and that He has turned over the working out of that victory to His church walking in the authority and power of His name. It is a call to understand that we, the church, are destined to overcome satan by the Blood of the Lamb, the word of our testimony, and by loving not our lives unto death. His church will crush satan underfoot! (Romans 16:20) This translates into the church being on earth during the great tribulation of the last three and one-half years of this age for the dual purposes of overcoming satan while being transformed into the likeness of Jesus. Glory!! There are tremendous parallels between the public ministry of Jesus and the prophetic destiny of the church at the end of this age. It seems that God is going to demonstrate through the corporate body of His Son that wisdom of the cross which He demonstrated 2000 years ago through His Son as an individual. Satan has stolen this glorious call and vision from the church, and it must be restored! This book seeks to restore the vision of the church at the end of the age to align with the purposes of God identified by the Holy Scriptures. The church will overcome, but it will be by the pathway of the cross, for it is the wisdom of the cross that God desires to demonstrate through His church to the powers and authorities in the heavenly places. This consists of no less than the reason for which He created all things, and is defined as His eternal purpose in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 3:8-11). It is a people walking in the Spirit of the Lamb who will follow their Lord wherever He goes, who will hear His voice and heed. They will have passion for their Lord and for His glory as befitting a Bride for her Husband. They will be lovers eager to demonstrate that greatest of love that lays down one's life for one's Brother.
