The Vision

My buddy gave me this this morning and it just got me pumped! its really cool. please comment. in 1 word let me know how you feel when you read this.

The Vision - by Pete Greig

So this guy comes up to me and says:

“what’s the vision? What’s the big idea?”

I open my mouth and words come out like this:

The vision?

The vision is JESUS – obsessively, dangerously, undeniably Jesus.

The vision is an army of young people.
You see bones? I see an army.
And they are FREE from materialism.

They laugh at 9-5 little prisons.
They could eat caviar on Monday and crusts on Tuesday.
They wouldn’t even notice.
They know the meaning of the Matrix, the way the west was won.

They are mobile like the wind, they belong to the nations.
They need no passport.
People write their addresses in pencil and wonder at their strange existence.
They are free yet they are slaves of the hurting and dirty and dying.

What is the vision ?

The vision is holiness that hurts the eyes.
It makes children laugh and adults angry.
It gave up the game of minimum integrity long ago to reach for the stars.
It scorns the good and strains for the best.
It is dangerously pure.

Light flickers from every secret motive, every private conversation.
It loves people away from their suicide leaps, their Satan games.
This is an army that will lay down its life for the cause.
A million times a day its soldiers choose to loose,
that they might one day win
the great ‘Well done’ of faithful sons and daughters.

Such heroes are as radical on Monday morning as Sunday night. They don’t need fame from names. Instead they grin quietly upwards and hear the crowds chanting again and again: “COME ON!”

And this is the sound of the underground
The whisper of history in the making
Foundations shaking
Revolutionaries dreaming once again
Mystery is scheming in whispers
Conspiracy is breathing...
This is the sound of the underground

And the army is discipl(in)ed.
Young people who beat their bodies into submission.
Every soldier would take a bullet for his comrade at arms.
The tattoo on their back boasts “for me to live is Christ and to die is gain”.

Sacrifice fuels the fire of victory in their upward eyes.
Winners. Martyrs.
Who can stop them ?
Can hormones hold them back?
Can failure succeed?
Can fear scare them or death kill them ?

And the generation prays

like a dying man
with groans beyond talking,
with warrior cries, sulphuric tears and
with great barrow loads of laughter!
Waiting. Watching: 24 – 7 – 365.

Whatever it takes they will give: Breaking the rules. Shaking mediocrity from its cosy little hide. Laying down their rights and their precious little wrongs, laughing at labels, fasting essentials. The advertisers cannot mould them. Hollywood cannot hold them. Peer-pressure is powerless to shake their resolve at late night parties before the cockerel cries.

They are incredibly cool, dangerously attractive


On the outside? They hardly care.
They wear clothes like costumes to communicate and celebrate but never to hide.
Would they surrender their image or their popularity?
They would lay down their very lives - swap seats with the man on death row - guilty as hell. A throne for an electric chair.

With blood and sweat and many tears, with sleepless nights and fruitless days,
they pray as if it all depends on God and live as if it all depends on them.

Their DNA chooses JESUS. (He breathes out, they breathe in.)
Their subconscious sings. They had a blood transfusion with Jesus.
Their words make demons scream in shopping centres.

Don’t you hear them coming?

Herald the weirdo’s! Summon the losers and the freaks.
Here come the frightened and forgotten with fire in their eyes.
They walk tall and trees applaud, skyscrapers bow, mountains are dwarfed by these children of another dimension.
Their prayers summon the hounds of heaven and invoke the ancient dream of Eden.

And this vision will be.
It will come to pass;
it will come easily;
it will come soon.

How do I know?

Because this is the longing of creation itself,
the groaning of the Spirit,
the very dream of God.

My tomorrow is his today.
My distant hope is his 3D.
And my feeble, whispered, faithless prayer invokes a thunderous, resounding, bone-shaking great ‘Amen!’ from countless angels, from hero’s of the faith, from Christ himself. And he is the original dreamer, the ultimate winner.

Hey guys, i guess this post is gona be a little different. Been thinking a lot this week about the in justices of this world the things that are going on that we have no idea about. There’s one thing that’s been on my heart for about a year now something i want to see come to an end. That is Child soldiers. Its something that not a lot of people know about its hidden really well. so my aim is just to bring awareness to the rubbish that’s out there and to bring an end to it! So that’s what these videos are about.

Break My Heart For What Breaks Yours

This a video that really moved me! What this guy is talking about is something i never really understood until i really did ask God to give me his heart for this world. To ask God how he see's this certen person, how he feels about this situation. When i started praying tho's prayers its like i steped into a whole new meaning of what i was doing. I have to be hoenst here and i always will be hoenst but the first few months after i gave my life to Jesus i didnt really get why i had help in a soup kitchen or help out at a youth meeting. I kinda just did it becasue i was told its the right thing todo because the bible told me todo it. I never really got it. I dont want to make out i was some emotionless robot cos i wasnt. I would be effected by these things i would feel sad for the people in affrica who have nouthing or the guy down the road who has knowone to talk too. But as soon as i left the situation i would be fine carrying on with my daily stuff, surfing hanging out etc. All that emotion had gone i had forgoten about it...
Things changed when i really asked god to break my heart for what breaks his, to see the world through his eyes. Thats when thigns changed. thats when i saw a reall purpose to the things we do. I would see that homless guy and have to talk to him. Once i left to go surfing i would still think about him i would still feel the pain and the sadness, you cant help but pray or go and buy him some food or whatever. My whole outlook changed it really was amazing! now i have this passion for my city to see my city changed to see Hope and healing come to my city, it hurts and i littraly weep for my city God showed me the pain and the lonleyness of the people who live here and i cant help but fall on my knees and pray.
So i challange you guys who have read this if you feel like God is pokeing you in the heart and you feel kinda sick or whatever. ask God to give you his heart and stay there untill he does. Trust me you will know when he does. Its awsome you really do feel great Joy when you see God start to answer prayers! It really is special!
