WHY MEN NEED VISIONS AND DREAMS
1) God’s foundational key to Gods strategy for ruling earth from heaven is the male man.

2) God’s original purpose is to extend his Heavenly kingdom to Earth. He wanted to colonize earth with heaven; he wanted to extend his invisible kingdom to this visible earth.

3) God’s goal was to fill the earth with the culture of heaven. When a kingdom colonizes a territory, it fills the territory with its culture.

4) One of the great mistakes of the church is it has reversed God’s program. It preoccupies people to leave earth, when in fact the instruction was to occupy till He comes.

5) Man was never created to dominate other men, but to dominate earth. You and I were created to dominate the resources of earth in the area of gifting. God gave all of us dominion, not over people, not even over your wife.

6) Discovery of your purpose is the source of your personal leadership. Leadership has to do with self discovery than it has to do with leading people. True leaders never seek followers, followers are attracted to the gift of the leader.

7) Vision is a preview of your purpose.

8) Man is spirit and spirits have no gender. You’ll never find in the Bible a reference to a male/female spirit. God took the first man, and put him in a body, and the first body God made was a male. Man comes in two models: male and female.

9) God only made only 1-human from the soil and he never went back. Not even women came from the soil. Out of the male body God pulled out a woman. God gave the woman the instruction to be an incubator for the man.

10) Wherever there is no management, God retards growth. Whatever you mismanage, you loose. If you mismanage your wife, you loose her.

11) Eden is a Hebrew word meaning presence. Hidden is not a place, it’s an environment. God created man to live in Eden.

12) The devil has no problem with women coming to church. The devil knows that if men ever get back into Gods presence, the family will come back to order. The devil hates a worshipping man.

13) The first place God put man was in his presence. The second thing God gave man is work. God gave man work before woman. The third thing God gave man is to take care of the garden, the fourth; to protect; the fifth to teach; and the sixth, responsibility in the garden.

14) The devil works so hard on the male, even to confuse him about his own sexuality. This is why pornography is so strong on the male to corrupt him. Every advertisement is targeted at the male is a woman’s naked body with her breasts hanging out.

15) The male was created first. First doesn’t mean you are better, it means you are responsible for everything that comes after you. God never taught the woman anything, He automatically made the male her teacher.

16) Two, the first thing God gave the male was image, because the most important thing males must have is a self image. Three, the first place God put the man was in Eden, in His presence. Four, the first command God gave to man was to work. Five, to Cultivate; Six, to Protect; Seven, to Obey My word.

17) The key to manhood is work.

18) The first command God gave man was to work, not to pray or worship.

19) Work is Eragon. It means to become, to manifest, to fulfil, to reveal, to become yourself; in other words, to discover to become what you ought to become through self manifestation.

20) Your work is not your job. Your job is what they pay you to do; your job is what you were born to do. You can retire from your job, you can’t retire from your work, coz your work is your gift.

21) God has hid in every male an awesome vision he is to become. You are not supposed to go to work, you are supposed to manifest work. Nobody can fire you from being yourself.

22) The average man has never discovered himself, that’s why women are confused.

23) Your work is your purpose; your purpose is the original reason why you were created. A bird was born to fly, when its flying, it’s working. A fish was born to swim, when its swimming, it’s working.

24) You cannot hire a gift.

25) Your work is your source of your vision. Vision is purpose in pictures. When you see what you were born to do in pictures, that your vision. When you find your purpose and see it in pictures, you’ve discovered your vision.

26) You were born because of purpose, not to find it.

27) There is something God wanted done that He already finished, so He gave you birth to start it. So you’re not here as an experiment, you’re here as an assignment. You came to earth already with your work trapped on the inside, prepared long before the world began. You’re living with your work, the problem is you’re trapped on the job.

28) Your job can suffocate your work.

29) The male is defined by his work. God gave man work first, then He gave him woman. In other words, you’re supposed to know your work before you find a woman.

30) Your worth is in your work, not from a woman. Its your work that makes you worthful. When a man doesn’t have an awareness of his work, he feels worthless.

31) A male’s value is in his work. Women don’t make men valuable, their work make them feel valuable. When a man looses his work, he feels less valuable, that’s why he beats the woman.

32) When a man finds his niche, everything comes alive. He feels important, even without anyone’s approval. When a man finds his work, he doesn’t need buddies to make him feel valuable.

33) The males esteem is in his work.

34) Work and woman: the male was given work before woman. You are supposed to already know your vision for your life before you marry a woman. Eve met Adam with two things: in Gods presence, and two, working. A woman is supposed to meet you with two things: Gods presence and working.

35) The woman was created to help the man. If someone is coming to help you, you must be doing something. God said, I will make for him a helper. Everything God built into a woman is to help her man. When some men meet some women, they feel threatened, coz they’ve got no project for her to work on.

36) Most men marry women like companies hire people. Some companies hire people and don’t give them anything to do. Its so frustrating to hire someone and not tell them what to do. When a man discovers his work, then he’s ready for a woman to help him in his work.

37) A woman needs a mans work to be fulfilled, coz, she’s a helper. A helper comes to help you. If you need to lift a podium, and you need help, you either need someone as strong as you are, or stronger. We think the woman is the weaker vessel. The word weaker in the Bible means delicate, not without strength. The helper has to either be as strong or stronger, to help you with your work.
38) Men consider women a threat coz they don’t have any work for the woman to do. A woman needs her man who knows his work.

39) If a man wants to marry a woman, the first question a woman should ask a man is not do you love me?, but where are you going. Work before woman, vision before woman, assignment before woman.

40) When a man finds his work, he secures the peace of the woman. A woman doesn’t come to compete with you, she comes to complete you.

41) Because God equipped them to help, if they come into your life and you’ve got nothing to do, they will go ahead and help themselves, by starting their own businesses, their own projects etc.

42) A female is an incubator. Her entire body is an incubator. Whatever you put into an incubator is multiplied, given life and given back to you. Incubators never keep anything. If you give a woman a sperm, she’ll multiply it, make it bigger and give you a baby. If you give her a house, she multiplies it and gives you a home. You give her groceries; she multiplies it and gives you a meal. Give her a word, she’ll multiply it and give you a sentence. Give her frustration, she’ll multiply it and give you hell. You can always tell what you’ve given a woman by what she is giving back to you.

43) She came into your life to help. A woman is frustrated by a man who doesn’t know his own vision. Your job is not your work.

44) The most important discovery of a male is his work.

45) Vision gives a male a sense of meaning in life. Vision provides security and meaning for the female also coz she came into your life to help you go to wherever you are going.

46) You should never marry a woman if you don’t know where you are going. That’s an abuse of a woman. She came to help you, to help you with what, is the question.

47) We cannot go into the next century with confused men. You wife may be quiet, but she’s quietly frustrated. She needs you to find your vision for her own sanity. Prov 29 says where there is no vision, the people perish.

48) When your wife goes to work for others, she makes them rich. If she works with you, she’ll make you rich, and both of you will be rich.

49) You were never supposed to die on your job, you’re supposed to die on your work. Job is temporary, work is permanent. Your wife needs security, work is security.

50) Where there’s no vision, the people perish. Vision is more important than the person. You give your children purpose when you find your own vision. Where there is no vision, you affect all the people. Vision is a source of self control. Vision is a key to corporate and personal discipline.

51) If you have no vision, you are an open game.

52) If you have no vision, you can be lead by good things that are not right. Good things are not always right. Vision is purpose which you can see. Can you see an apple tree in an apple seed? Vision. Vision is purpose in Technicolor.

53) Some people have seen their vision but their society tells you not to dream that big. Vision is Gods deposit of his purpose in your heart. Vision is looking at your future and from it comes your passion.

54) A man who knows his purpose doesn’t go home and sit in front of the television with bear in his hand, drinking for five hours.

55) Vision makes you a finished man. Your vision is your true concept.

56) God wants you to have sight but never to live by your sight. The greatest gift God gave man is not the gift of sight, but the gift of vision. The greatest enemy of vision is sight. Sight is a function of the eyes but vision is a function of the heart. Never trust your eyes over your vision. Vision shows you what could be, sight shows you what is. Always live by what you see with your vision, and not what you see with your eyes. The Bible says we walk by faith not by sight. Vision contradict your eyes.

57) Your vision is more real than your present realities.

58) Your birth is evidence that there is something finished that you were born to start. That’s why the Bible says “He shows you your end your beginning”. God won’t allow you to see what is not there. Once you see it, that’s a fact.

59) The distance between what you see and where you are is called, the plan. Its important for you as a man to see your end. If you meet a woman at the beginning, you better not tell her what you have at the beginning, coz you aint got nothing. You better show her what you’ll have at the end. A woman can believe in your dreams more than in your pocket.

60) Never judge a man at his beginning, coz the beginning is always small. The Bible says the end of a thing is greater than its beginning. You need to find your work.

61) Joseph saw his end when he was a teenager, and Joseph believed his end so much he started talking about it. You don’t believe it until you start talking about it.

62) To know if a vision is from God, it’ll make you look like a fool. If they believe you the first time you tell them, it’s not from God.

63) Every vision only has one believer at first. Sometimes you’ve got to first convince your spouse, like Abraham and Joseph.

64) Joseph ran and told his daddy, I saw myself sitting on the throne. His brothers said are you crazy? If they don’t think you are crazy, its not a vision from God yet. Joseph’s brothers couldn’t handle his dream; they threw his clothes off and threw him in a pit. Joseph never got angry. Joseph in the pit must have said to himself, this is not what I saw. If what you see is not what you saw, then what you see is temporary. Your job is your temporary employment. Enjoy where you are, coz it isn’t permanent, its temporary.

65) When his brothers took Joseph to the desert and threw him into the pit, it had to be one of the pits right next to the highway, where the merchants caravans would be coming all the way from Syria to Egypt to do buisness. They had to have thrown him into the right pit right next to the highway. It was the right pit that the caravans had to pass. When his brothers saw the caravans, the took him out of the pit and sold him on the side of the road to the caravans. He was in the right pit right next to the right highway, coz the free transportation that he needed to get to the throne was coming that same highway

Death of American Dream

...Death of the American Dream What is the “American Dream”? Does everybody have the same dream; does everybody want the same thing? Does everyone who tries for his or her dream achieve it? This unit we have read and discussed different literature that has dealt with aspects of the “American Dream”. Two of those texts that have had the most impact on me personally and my vision of my dream were “Death of a Salesman” by Arthur Miller and “Winter Dreams” by F. Scott Fitzgerald. These two pieces of literature deal with aspects of each of the main characters pursuit of what they feel is their “American Dream”. It’s safe to say that both of these depictions end in a sorrowful way; with both of the main characters realizing that their dream won’t be fulfilled. Both of these authors show how the typical American Dream of having wealth and glory won’t bring one true contentment; it is this aspect of the “American Dream” that both of the main characters of the stories strive to attain. It seems that with every greedy aspiration for the “American Dream” comes unfulfilled lives and missed experiences; for this is what happens to Dexter Green in “Winter Dreams” and Willy Loman in “Death of a Salesman”. The two texts portray the false determinations and unrealistic visions that can plague a man or woman with a strong thirst for the “American Dream” and end up leading a person to the edge of destruction. This thirst for the “American Dream” can blind someone from recognizing...

Of Mice and Men

...the themes present in the text. "Of mice and men", by John Steinbeck is a classic novella with containing pages filled with awe-inspiring literature, that has brought smiles as well as tears to all of its readers. There are several cultural issues that Steinbeck incorporates into this text, using effective techniques and a very articulate writing style to make this novella one to be remembered long after the final pages have been read. The main cultural issues that evolve through the course of the novel include racism, alienation and the constantly evolving issue of hope. The main cultural issue that evolve during the course of the novella is discrimination and prejudice. There are three main people in the novella who are discriminated against in this text. They include Curley's wife, Lennie and Crooks. Crooks is an American African and because of his skin colour he is constantly discriminated against throughout the novella. As Lennie enters Cooks' room for the first time, he becomes very defensive as he says, "You got no right to come in my room. This here is my room. Nobody got any right in here but me". Lennie, as innocent as he is, does not know about racism and does not, through the entire novella understand or use racism against Crooks. Lennie, who does not know of racism, "smiled at helplessly in an attempt to make friends". Crooks realises that Lennie is mentally disabled and Crooks then tries to explain Lennie why others discriminate against him. He tells......

Of Mice and Men

...George, on the other hand, thinks of Lennie as a constant source of frustration. He has assumed responsibility for Lennie’s welfare and has, several times, been forced to run because of trouble Lennie has inadvertently caused. Life with Lennie is not easy. However, despite George’s frequent bouts of anger and frustration, and his long speeches about how much easier life would be without Lennie, George is clearly devoted to his friend. He flees from town to town not to escape the trouble Lennie has caused, but to protect Lennie from its consequences. The men are uncommonly united by their shared dream of a better life on a farm where they can “live off the fatta the lan’,” as Lennie puts it. George articulates this vision by repeatedly telling the “story” of the future farm to his companion. Lennie believes unquestioningly in their dream, and his faith enables the hardened, cynical George to imagine the possibility of this dream becoming reality. In fact, George’s belief in it depends upon Lennie, for as soon as Lennie dies, George’s hope for a brighter future disappears. 2. Discuss the ways in...

...To survive in life a person needs to get a job. A job should be enjoyed, since spending countless hours doing something you do not enjoy doesn’t get you anywhere in life, except passed paying taxes. Children of all ages, places, and generations dream of what they are going to be when they grow up, dreams like firefighters, doctors, artists, and chefs. All children dream, but most dreams come short of coming true. In society today, many people's occupations are chosen not because they are following their dream, but because they need the money earned to survive, or they are not treated fairly in the job the desire.

Of Mice and Men Analysis

...Analysis of Major Characters Lennie Although Lennie is among the principal characters in Of Mice and Men, he is perhaps the least dynamic. He undergoes no significant changes, development, or growth throughout the novel and remains exactly as the reader encounters him in the opening pages. Simply put, he loves to pet soft things, is blindly devoted to George and their vision of the farm, and possesses incredible physical strength. Nearly every scene in which Lennie appears confirms these and only these characteristics. Although Steinbeck’s insistent repetition of these characteristics makes Lennie a rather flat character, Lennie’s simplicity is central to Steinbeck’s conception of the novel. Of Mice and Men is a very short work that manages to build up an extremely powerful impact. Since the tragedy depends upon the outcome seeming to be inevitable, the reader must know from the start that Lennie is doomed, and must be sympathetic to him. Steinbeck achieves these two feats by creating a protagonist who earns the reader’s sympathy because of his utter helplessness in the face of the events that unfold. Lennie is totally defenseless. He cannot avoid the dangers presented by Curley, Curley’s wife, or the world at large. His innocence raises him to a standard of pure goodness that is more poetic and literary than realistic. His enthusiasm for the vision of their future farm proves contagious as he convinces George, Candy, Crooks, and the reader that such a paradise might be......

Vmosa

...* What is VMOSA? * Why should your organization use VMOSA? * When should you use VMOSA? Like everyone else, community organizers often dream about goals they would like to accomplish, such as an end to drug abuse; every child being wanted, cared for, and nurtured; a home for everyone; peace in our lifetime. These are just a few of many people's visions for our community. Unfortunately, like many individual dreams, we think these objectives are too lofty and unattainable to ever be realized. But, in fact, realizing these dreams is possible. Look, for example, at our global success in eradicating small pox, or how far we have come since the 1950s in the United States towards reaching racial and gender equality. As Henry David Thoreau said over a century ago, "If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be. Now, put foundations under them." Building foundations for your community dreams is what VMOSA, the strategic planning process that is the focus of this chapter, is all about. It's about groups of people deciding together what they want to accomplish, and how they are going to get there. What is VMOSA? One way to make that journey is through strategic planning, the process by which a group defines its own "VMOSA;" that is, its Vision, Mission, Objectives, Strategies, and Action Plans. VMOSA is a practical planning process that can be used by any community organization or initiative. This comprehensive planning tool...

Of Mice and Men

...Of Mice And Men In the masterful story Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck there is a looming theme of loneliness. This theme is told to you through the words and actions of the characters in the story . This story is told through two characters Lennie and George. The setting is 1930’s America. The story involves traveling ranch workers that live only for the one purpose to get paid and waste their money on a few drinks and some pleasure. These men are consumed with loneliness. The care for nothing but themselves. They are very unlike George and Lennie who have each other and a dream. Lennie is a big man with the brain of a child. Lennie never meant to hurt anybody but managed to get himself and his only true friend George into trouble. George is a small smart man who has known Lennie all his life and knows to well that Lennie could not survive on his own lets him travel with him as a favor too Lennie’s aunt Loneliness is defined as Without companions; lone. I will use this definition to describe different aspects of Steinbeck’s treatment of loneliness in this novel. Steinbeck’s use of loneliness is in this novel is very noticeable in some of the dialogue like when Lennie accidentally stumbles into Crook’s home in the stable and they talk. "You got George.

Those who teach principles contradicting the Bible are not better than the Bible; they are actually being inspired by Satan. God cannot contradict His word; see the story of the prophet in 1Kings 13:1-28. God communicates through the Bible. If He must send a prophet, the prophet cannot contradict the Bible. Again I say, if he contradicts the Bible, he is a false prophet. God has not sent Him. Christ has a message to the world, and He puts His Spirit in a person who communicates that message to the world. That is how it works. God communicates to the prophet in dreams and visions. That is the Spirit of Prophecy. In the last days, in connection with signs in the moon, sun and stars, the Spirit of Prophecy is to be seen (see Joel 2:28-32).

The Cosmopolitan Magazine had ordered it from him and, after his death, the unfinished manuscript was found in his room, on his dusty desk. The story as it here appears was published in the Cosmopolitan for September, 1910.] MURRAY dreamed a dream. Both psychology and science grope when they would explain to us the strange adventures of our immaterial selves when wandering in the realm of "Death's twin brother, Sleep." This story will not attempt to be illuminative; it is no more than a record of Murray's dream. One of the most puzzling phases of that strange waking sleep is that dreams which seem to cover months or even years may take place within a few seconds or minutes. Murray was waiting in his cell in the ward of the condemned. An electric arc light in the ceiling of the corridor shone brightly upon his table. On a sheet of white paper an ant crawled wildly here and there as Murray blocked its way with an envelope. The electrocution was set for eight o'clock in the evening. Murray smiled at the antics of the wisest of insects. There were seven other condemned men in the chamber. Since he had been there Murray had seen three taken out to their fate; one gone mad and fighting like a wolf caught in a trap; one, no less mad, offering up a sanctimonious lip-service to Heaven; the third, a weakling, collapsed and strapped to a board. He wondered with what credit to himself his......

Dreams

...Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep.[1] The content and purpose of dreams are not definitively understood, though they have been a topic of scientific speculation, as well as a subject of philosophical and religious interest, throughout recorded history. The scientific study of dreams is called oneirology.[2] Dreams mainly occur in the rapid-eye movement (REM) stage of sleep—when brain activity is high and resembles that of being awake. REM sleep is revealed by continuous movements of the eyes during sleep. At times, dreams may occur during other stages of sleep. However, these dreams tend to be much less vivid or memorable.[3] The length of a dream can vary; they may last for a few seconds, or approximately 20–30 minutes.[3] People are more likely to remember the dream if they are awakened during the REM phase. The average person has three to five dreams per night, but some may have up to seven dreams in one night.[4] The dreams tend to last longer as the night progresses. During a full eight-hour night sleep, most dreams occur in the typical two hours of REM.[5] In modern times, dreams have been seen as a connection to the unconscious mind. They range from normal and ordinary to overly surreal and bizarre. Dreams can have varying natures, such as frightening, exciting, magical, melancholic, adventurous, or sexual. The events in dreams are generally outside the control of the...

Entrepeneural Leadership

Knowing what it takes to become an entrepreneur and establish a successful and thriving business is not easy. Entrepreneurs are risk takers and they understand that no matter how small or large the venture there must be a strategy and a business plan in place in order to operate a profitable business. In order to accomplish this there are particular leadership skills, practices, and principles that are required. Social ecologist Peter Drucker, Former AOL CEO and Chairman Steve Case, and leadership scholar James Kouzes each have a different set of common elements, however, they all share similar principles, philosophies, and strategies that define what is expected of an entrepreneur and the relationship between their philosophies and the new era and definition of entrepreneurial leadership.

The Great Gatsby

...The Great Gatsby and The American Dream While many countries around the world are working toward equality of social status and avoiding a large gap between rich and poor, there is still a strong desire in people for social freedom through the accumulation of wealth and extravagance. The Great Gatsby’s depiction of the connection between material goods and the American dream is still relevant today. At first glance, the movie may seem to be about the failed relationship of Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan. However, the major theme of the novel is the accumulation of wealth for social status and the idea of being able to reach a high level of success regardless of family history or lack of money. To understand the connection between the two it will be necessary to have an analysis of the culture values in the 1920’s, what people consider to be the American dream, and finally if there is still a strong desire to achieve the American dream in today’s society. In order to understand the connection between The Great Gatsby and the American dream it is first important to have a good understanding about the movie and motifs of the movie/novel itself. The story takes place in a post war America in the 1920’s when Nick Carraway moves to New York to pursue his career in finance. Nick soon discovers that he is neighbored to the wealthy and mysterious Jay Gatsby, who is known for his loud, lavish parties. Jay and Nick soon become good friends and Nick begins to learn the motifs......
