Tell me; do you really know who you are as a born-again
Child of God? Do you really have the vision for what your
purpose is in this life? Do you fully understand where you
will be going once you have completed your mission here?
Whether you do or don't, I hope that the following resume of
the Spirit-filled Christian will encourage and inspire your
heart, renew your faith, and motivate you to do more for the
Lord on a daily basis. I encourage you to print out this
article and place it somewhere where it will be a constant
reminder to you of our Heavenly Vision. Any time you are
feeling a bit down and discouraged, when the problems and
weights of this world are heavy upon your shoulders, just
pick it up and read it over. It isn't very long. Remember,
as Jesus said:

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I
will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest
unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is
light." (Matthew 11:28-30)

After reading the following, I am sure that you will feel
absolutely refreshed; for you will have been temporarily
lifted up out of this world, and taken a spiritual bath in
the waters of His wonderful Word; and as we are told in the
Holy Scriptures:

"BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by
taking heed thereto according to thy word."
(Psalms 119:9)

"Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto
you." (John 15:3)

Allow me to encourage you to edit the following resume of
the Spirit-filled Christian for your personal needs. You may
even wish to personalize it and give a copy to different
members of your family who are also Christians, or to other
Christian friends. While we may not always agree on every
single iota of doctrine, one thing we do all have in common,
is that we share the same Heavenly Vision. May the following
Scriptures be a tremendous blessing in your life:


1. NAME: The WordWeaver. (But we shall receive a new name)

"He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat
of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in
the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he
that receiveth it." (Revelation 2:17)

"Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of
my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon
him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God,
which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from
my God: and I will write upon him my new name."
(Revelation 3:12)

2. BIRTHDATE: Born again July, 1971.

"Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say
unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the
kingdom of God...Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must
be born again." (John 3:3, 7)

"Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of
incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth
for ever." (1 Peter 1:23)

"As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that
ye may grow thereby:" (1 Peter 2:2)

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:
old things are passed away; behold, all things are become
new." (2 Corinthians 5:17)

3. BIRTHPLACE: Reborn in San Jose, California, U.S.A.,
Planet Earth, but prone to travel due to occupation.

"The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the
sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and
whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the
Spirit." (John 3:8)

"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach
the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15)

"And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the
world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end
come." (Matthew 24:14)

"Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into
such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell,
and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the
morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that
appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For
that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and
do this, or that." (James 4:13-15)

4. SEX: There is neither male nor female in Christ Jesus.

"For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given
in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven."
(Matthew 22:30)

"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor
free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one
in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:28)

5. OCCUPATION: Servant of the Lord/Ambassador for Christ

"So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things
which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants:
we have done that which was our duty to do." (Luke 17:10)

"Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did
beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye
reconciled to God." (2 Corinthians 5:20)

"And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the
firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the
stars for ever and ever." (Daniel 12:3)

"The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that
winneth souls is wise." (Proverbs 11:30)

"Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained
you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your
fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the
Father in my name, he may give it you." (John 15:16)

6. INCOME: Laying up treasures in Heaven.

"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth
and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and
steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where
neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not
break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there
will your heart be also." (Matthew 6:19-21)

7. MARITAL STATUS: I am part of the Bride of Christ.

"Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law
by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another,
even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should
bring forth fruit unto God." (Romans 7:4)

8. STREET ADDRESS: Street Of Gold. Exact mansion number
unknown at this time.

"And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate
was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold,
as it were transparent glass." (Revelation 21:21)

"In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so,
I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And
if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and
receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be
also." (John 14:2-3)

9. CITY: New Jerusalem.

"Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of
my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon
him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God,
which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from
my God: and I will write upon him my new name."
(Revelation 3:12)

"And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down
from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her
husband." (Revelation 21:2)

10. COUNTRY: The Kingdom Of Heaven.

"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom
of heaven...Blessed are they which are persecuted for
righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
(Matthew 5:3, 10)

"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter
into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my
Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 7:21)

"But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them
not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
(Matthew 19:14)

"For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look
for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:"
(Philippians 3:20)

11. CITIZENSHIP: The Kingdom Of Heaven.

"Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but
fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of
God;" (Ephesians 2:19)

12. POLITICAL AFFILIATION: My Kingdom is not of this world.

"And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from
above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world."
(John 8:23)

"Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my
kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight,
that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my
kingdom not from hence." (John 18:36)

"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the
friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever
therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of
God." (James 4:4)

"If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which
are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the
earth." (Colossians 3:1-2)

"For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look
for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:"
(Philippians 3:20)

"These all died in faith, not having received the promises,
but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them,
and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers
and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things
declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they
had been mindful of that country from whence they came out,
they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now
they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly:
wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he
hath prepared for them a city." (Hebrews 11:13-16)

13. RELIGION:
Christian. (name established in Antioch)

"And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And
it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves
with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples
were called Christians first in Antioch." (Acts 11:26)

"Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ."
(1 Corinthians 11:1)

14. PERSONAL EXPECTATIONS: A new life, and a new body!

"For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be
conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the
firstborn among many brethren." (Romans 8:29)

"Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of
every creature:" (Colossians 1:15)

"For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle
were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made
with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan,
earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which
is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be
found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan,
being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but
clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life."
(2 Corinthians 5:1-4)

"Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned
like unto his glorious body, according to the working
whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself."
(Philippians 3:21)

"Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet
appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall
appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he
is." (1 John 3:2)

"There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial:
but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the
terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and
another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars:
for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also
is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption;
it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is
raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in
power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual
body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual
body. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a
living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that
which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The
first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the
Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that
are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that
are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy,
we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I
say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the
kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit
incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all
sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the
twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet
shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and
we shall be changed." (1 Corinthians 15:40-52)

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a
shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump
of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we
which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with
them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so
shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one
another with these words." (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)

And that, brethren, is our purpose in life, as well as our
Heavenly Vision and goal! Isn't that wonderful? Isn't that
absolutely inspiring? Anything less than this is a cheap
imitation of Satan, so don't you be tricked by it! Don't you
become trapped by the temporal things that this world has to
offer; for as the Apostle John wrote, those things are not
of God; they are of the world; and as Paul wrote, we brought
nothing into this world, and it is certain that we will
carry nothing out of it; unless of course we have laid up
our treasures in Heaven:

"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the
world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is
not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the
flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is
not of the Father, but is of the world." (1 John 2:15-16)

"For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain
we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us
be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into
temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful
lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the
love of money is the root of all evil: which while some
coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced
themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of
God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness,
godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good
fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art
also called, and hast professed a good profession before
many witnesses." (1 Timothy 6:7-12)

So again, as the Apostle Paul told King Agrippa in the Book
of Acts, our Heavenly Vision is to win as many as we can to
Christ, that they too may partake of the glories soon to be
revealed from Heaven:

"But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto
thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness
both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those
things in the which I will appear unto thee; Delivering thee
from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send
thee, To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to
light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may
receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them
which are sanctified by faith that is in me. Whereupon, O
king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly
vision:" (Acts 26:16-19)

I am shooting for the stars! How about you? Let the foolish
children of the world build their silly castles of sand.
When the flood of God's chastisements begins to fall on this
wicked old world, they will all be washed away, just like
the rising tide on the seashore. Jesus said so Himself:

"And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth
them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built
his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the
floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house;
and it fell: and great was the fall of it."
(Matthew 7:26-27)

But as for us, we will soon be moving on to something much
better; and we will be taking many people with us, if we are
faithful to do the task that He has given us to do! All you
have to do is to keep your eyes on Jesus, the Author and the
Finisher of our faith, and the Rock of our Salvation!:

"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,
despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of
the throne of God." (Hebrews 12:2)

"Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and
doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built
his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the
floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house;
and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock."
(Matthew 7:24-25)

"And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank
of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was
Christ." (1 Corinthians 10:4)

As the Apostle Paul wrote, just keep running the race with
patience that is set before you, and don't let Satan trick
you into trying to take a detour, because you are not to be
ignorant of his devices:

"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great
a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the
sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with
patience the race that is set before us," (Hebrews 12:1)

"Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one
receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain."
(1 Corinthians 9:24)

"Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not
ignorant of his devices." (2 Corinthians 2:11)

There is only one way to run the race, and that is with the
help of Jesus Christ; because He is the only Way, the only
Truth, and the only Life. He is the only Door that leads
into God's sheepfold. Look neither to the left, nor to the
right, but let your eyes look right on Jesus!:

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the
life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
(John 14:6)

"Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto
you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before
me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved,
and shall go in and out, and find pasture." (John 10:7-9)

"Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look
straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let
all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor
to the left: remove thy foot from evil."
(Proverbs 4:25-27)

Just keep your eyes on Jesus Christ who is up there in front
of you. He has got His arms outstretched with a Crown of
Life ready to place upon your head; but you've got to finish
the race first if you expect to receive it. Crowns are only
for winners, and not for those who fall by the wayside in a
moment of temptation, weakness or despair. Please don't
disappoint Him:

"And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in
all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown;
but we an incorruptible." (1 Corinthians 9:25)

"Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is
tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord
hath promised to them that love him." (James 1:12)

"...be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a
crown of life." (Revelation 2:10b)

God bless you! I hope that this article has come like a
burst of fresh air to your soul! I hope that it has renewed
your faith! I hope that it has rekindled the fires of His
love in your heart! I hope that it has motivated you to be a
doer and not just a hearer of His Word! Do you have the
Heavenly Vision?
