A Vision That Draws Us to Him
In this edition of the magazine we are giving the last five messages on "The Heavenly Vision" to our readers, which were given at the Rucacura conference (Chile) in January 2005. The topic of this conference was the same as that of the First International Conference in Santiago during September 2004. It was not an inadvertent or fortuitous coincidence, but was deliberate, since it was a question of reaffirming the heavenly vision in the life of the believer and of the church, seeking for more light from God on the matter.
Thus we might say the topic was not exhausted at the Conference in Santiago, and needed to be continued at the Rucacura conference. Of course, in the ten messages given at Rucacura, there was no pre-determined message order but rather there was a great deal of diversity, according to what the Holy Spirit put in the worker's hearts, according to the particular grace given to each.
We are firmly persuaded that without a heavenly vision, a Christian's development and service may be lost and cause much loss, both in the present and in the future. What will happen to us when we must present ourselves before the judgment seat of Christ, and we give our works over to be tested by fire? We suspect that many works which are often proclaimed to be "of God" in these days do not meet the spiritual standards required by God.
We are grateful to the Lord for granting this word to us, and for the privilege of being able to share it with our English-speaking brothers throughout the whole world, through this our Website www.aguasvivas.cl/english.htm.
May He fulfill all His good purposes in his people, for his glory and praise.
