Vision from God, Our Lord Jesus is Sacred, DO NOT share with anyone unless the person is Spiritually connected or Right with you, who will doeth the Vision together with you. Be careful with God, Our Lord Jesus given Vision. We have great Spiritual Responsibilities!!
Pastor Kong Hee once mentioned in the sermon "Do not share your vision with anyone else because it is very personal with God unless they are meant to be part of the vision. It is given by God to you so that you can accomplished the Vision in Jesus name. The reason why you can't share vision with other people is because they will say thing to discourage you and worst they may carry out actions to prevent you from completing the vision. Another problem is that people may steal your Vision."
Also if the Vision is meant for more than one person to accomplish together, God, our Lord Jesus will reveal to all the choosen people and they will all agreed to whatever decision arise from the COMMON VISION.
In this writeup, we're using the Christmas Challenge to illustrate how a Vision is being perceived and eventually emerged as a reality, though not a perfect example but lesson can be learned from here.
Chapter 1 - Shaping up a Vision
Last Christmas, ie. 2007.
My work place ABN AMBRO BANK throw a Christmas challenge to all department. Immediately I had a Vision that our department will win this challenge. Yes, a tall Christmas Tree using recycle material, reaching up to touch the ceiling of our department (Insurance). With limited time, of less then 2 weeks, I really have to get permission to get it started. There was some delay in authorising the starting of this work. Perhaps at that time our management aren't clear about the Vision or very engrossed in their planning. Then barely a week to go, our management finally authorised me to carry out the work, the Christmas Tree. Many of my colleague were completely blurred about this Vision that I am talking about. Once during the morning briefing, I told boldly in front of them "The Vision is clear we will win this Christmas Challenge. The $500 Gift Hamper will be Ours!" Everyone was so excited and clapped hand but the excitement died down so soon on the next day. I drove my car and move everything that I can find in my store. Most important item is the IKEA iron Rod that was meant for hanging of Bicycles. I couldn't get much help from my colleagues because they could not visualise the Vision. So I must find way and means to tranfer whatever I perceived in my mind into something tangible. This is what I must do :-
1. Establish the main backbone of the Vision, set up the IKEA Rod.
2. Create the outline of the Vision. Using nylon string and Christmas cards to form the outline of the tree.
3. Add in some sample content of the Vision. Use the discarded keyboard, aluminium cans, beer bottles.
Once Physical Visualisation has been set, my colleagues started to pour in all the helps.
Although the Christmas is 75% complete due to lack of time, we still managed to WIN!! Unfinished work such as rolling used newspaper as Big Balls to fatten the Christmas Tree and adding spikes of Christmas Tree Leaves wasn't done. LOLz.
HelleluJah! Praise the Lord!!
There is some lesson to learn from here. Only if other people had recieved
the same Vision from God, our Lord Jesus, then the work can be easily carry
out together, all in one mind. If not, you'll have to identify the main backbone
of the Vision to get it started. You'll have to select the person who
is able to visualised the Vision based on the backbone, if not, at least the
outline of the vision. If these 2 steps has been done and yet the selected
person cannot visualised, eitheir you are not good in illustrating ideas or
that you have the chose the wrong person. Well, maybe your vision is too complex,
you would have to fill in the content by writing so that the person
or people helping you can carry out the specific instructions accordingly
and complete the vision.
See next Chapter.
