Where there is no revelation (prophetic vision) the people cast off restraint; but happy is he who keeps the law. Proverbs 29:18
The people of God are restrained by love and the boundaries of the Word of God, but where there is no prophetic vision given, they cast off restraint and follow the dictates of their heart! Today millions of believers are wandering throughout Christendom aimlessly with no rime or reason why they are on the planet because they have no vision!
Today, Christianity is a treadmill of obligation, showing up for one more Sunday morning fix to get them through the week and satisfy God's need for them to obey His wishes for them to be in church. But the church is not for sitting, it is an assembly of believers with a divine vision to reap a harvest upon the earth and to disciple them according to His word. When one is born again he becomes a member in good standing in the church of the Firstborn, baptized in newness of life, and empowered with the Holy Spirit, he becomes a soldier in the Lord's army!
We as believers have been made stewards of the mysteries of God's kingdom and possessors of the eternal gospel of the salvation of mankind and that in itself should be enough prophetic vision to last one a thousand years! Are you walking and living out your destiny, fulfilling the great commission, or are you still trudging to nowhere on your treadmill of good works?
You therefore must endure (share) hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please Him who enlisted him as a soldier. II Timothy 2:3,4
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
