The Five Dimensions vision was revealed to our team after much prayer and searching around the question, “Why are we still here, Father?”
We believe Yahweh has unveiled these five dimensions of how the kingdom of heaven fills the kingdom of earth in every generation to both explain why no generation before ours has yet completed Jesus’ Great Commission and also to confirm the Great Commands foundation of our identity and purpose: to love the Father, rest in Christ, and walk in the Spirit.
We must depend upon our Heavenly Father for everything every day and night without any expectations as we run this adventurous race laid out before us keeping our eyes fixed upon Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith and flowing in the life healing river of the Holy Spirit, our Faithful Companion and Wonderful Counselor.
Let’s keep making disciples in every nation until there’s No Place Left!
Dimension 1: Great Commands
Vision: I asked the Lord, “Why are we still here?” He responded, “Because my sons and daughters do not understand the five dimensions of my kingdom in heaven.” So, I said, “Father, please teach me about the kingdom of heaven and its five dimensions.” I saw a family, parents and children, united within a perfect circle.
This picture illustrates Dimension 1. Jesus teaches me to love him above all things with all my heart, mind, soul, and strength. His second command is to love my neighbor, beginning with my family. This first dimension is the foundation for a healthy and fruitful life on mission with Jesus.
I must care for my soul and put my family before my mission. My Father delights in me when I remain in him and take care of my family. I rest in my Father’s heart, receive revelation from the Son, and walk in the Spirit. Every day, I practice these commands by his grace.
Covenant > Our Father is the Rainbow Maker. He made a covenant with mankind after the Flood to show mercy for our wickedness and never destroy a whole generation again. (Genesis 9:12-13)
Bread > Jesus Christ is our Daily Bread. His presence fills and feeds us with above and beyond all we could ever need. He is our Greatest Treasure and a Shining Light to the world. (John 6:32-33)
Compassion > Jesus is our Perfect Shepherd. He leaves the 99 to rescue the lost one. He cares compassionately for and protects his followers. He is also our Loving Teacher. (Mark 6:34)
Build > Jesus is our Master Builder. He is the Solid Rock Foundation for our lives, families, and destinies. As we follow him, we depend upon him daily to refresh and guide us. (Psalm 127:1)
Faith > Jesus is our Resurrection Life. We have died to self, and he has breathed life over our dry bones. He has birthed faith in us and continues to cultivate it as we remain in him. (Galatians 2:20)
Dimension 2: Great Commission
Vision: I asked the Lord for more, and he showed me the family in a box standing next to the four fields mission strategy in Mark 4 recently revealed to apostolic teams in Asia. In the four fields, disciples go into harvest fields to engage people from every nation.
They share the gospel, disciple new believers, gather them into new churches, and train them to reproduce the pattern as they cultivate faithful, humble, unified leadership teams. This picture of a family on mission together in local harvest fields illustrates Dimension 2: Jesus’ invitation to surrender our comforts and make new disciples among all nations.
Jesus created the family team to flourish in this life together and also to reproduce life and hope into other families who have yet to experience Jesus’ kingdom culture.
Great Commission > Jesus is our Harvest Field Lord; our Courageous Commander. Our Father has placed all authority upon him. His mission to all peoples is alive within us. (Matthew 28:18-20)
Fear of the LORD > Yahweh is the Ancient of Days, the Creator of Heaven and Earth. He overwhelms his sons and daughters as we behold his majesty and glory. (Proverbs 3:7-8)
Good News > Witnessing of Jesus’ salvation is the master craft of our destinies. His blood covers us, his Spirit fills us, his message flows through us to all nations and tribes. (Ephesians 2:17-19)
Clear Path > Jesus is our Wonderful Counselor and Faithful Companion. We enter his kingdom by the narrow gate, and we journey along his straight paths as blazing lights. (Isaiah 62:10-11)
Discernment > Jesus Christ is the Wisdom of Yahweh. May our generation receive the anointing of Samuel, to hear and discern the Holy Spirit’s voice and obey his revelation. (Revelation 3:22)
Dimension 3: Harvest Stages & Spiritual Power
Vision: I asked the Lord for more. I saw the four fields become four stages of harvest: dry, uncultivated soil, soil ready for seed, new fruitful plants, and fruitful trees with new fruitful plants reproducing around them.
In the center, I saw the family standing in a deep well with water overflowing like a fountain released through them and watering the surrounding four fields. The well is the wisdom and presence of Jesus through the Holy Spirit who is the living fountain water flowing through the family to nurture all the surrounding soils as they change harvest stages.
As the family remains in Jesus, depending upon him, he overflows resurrection life into their mission fields. This dimension demonstrates 1 Corinthians 3: we plant and water, and our Father gives the increase.
Remain > Jesus is the True Vine, and Yahweh is the Vineyard Keeper. We are living water bridges from the vine to the fruit. We do not produce fruit; Jesus does this work through us. (John 15:5)
Blessing > Our Father loves to bless his children. He cares for us. He shines his face and pours out his grace upon us. He baptizes our daily lives with visceral peace. (Numbers 6:24-27)
Love > Jesus Christ is our Loving Savior. He is our Man of Sorrows Messiah King of Glory. To experience Jesus is to know and embrace true, authentic, pure love. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
Breakthrough > Jesus is our Eternal Inheritance, our Affection Target. As we seek first and only his kingdom and righteousness, he teaches us how to pray and what to pursue. (Matthew 7:7-8)
Overflow > Jesus is our Generous Giver. He gave the greatest gift possible: his life. His indescribable generosity inspires us to intentionally overflow all we have to others. (Luke 6:38)
Dimension 4: Spiritual Warfare & Spiritual Gifts
Vision: I asked the Lord for more, and he unveiled a hidden spiritual realm. The four fields began to rotate illustrating changing seasons. I now saw trees and plants, both alive and dead, in the same fields. I saw demon archers releasing death arrows to catch fruitful plants and trees on fire to destroy them. I saw angels visiting the family to reveal what trees were being attacked so they could send the living water to put out the flames.
I saw diverse spiritual gifts and anointing for spiritual power: broken chains (overcoming strongholds), table & flame (communion & anointing), pouring cup (suffering & generosity), water (prophets), rod & staff (leadership), mountain (apostles), sword & shield (teachers), heart (shepherds), and open door (evangelists).
I saw the daily battleground for every soul. I saw for the first time the collision of heavenly kingdoms and earth’s kingdom. The harvest fields are spiritual battlegrounds with every kind of soil changing through increasing warfare. Despite the danger and suffering of this dimension, the family is still resting in the well and overflowing life.
Alignment > Jesus is our Plumb Line. We do not know what to do without his relentless revelation. He knows everything and is everywhere. Our eyes are fixed upon him. (Matthew 6:10)
Anointing > Jesus is our Anointed One. He baptizes us with his anointing: to speak life to the poor, to bind up and heal the broken, to deliver captives into freedom. (Isaiah 61:1)
Armor > Jesus is our Spiritual Eyesight. We have no enemies among earth’s kingdoms. Our battle is spiritual, and the battle belongs to the Lord. We overcome by his blood. (Ephesians 6:12-13)
Weapons > Jesus is our Strong Refuge Tower. He equips us with a faith shield to defend against the enemy’s fire arrows and a flaming sword to demolish strongholds. (1 Corinthians 10:3-4)
Fullness > Jesus is Head of his Church. He created us unique, diverse, and unified. He sets apart apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds, and teachers as mission teams. (Ephesians 4:11-13)
Dimension 5: River of Time & Age to Age
Vision: In dimension 4, I said, “Lord, now this makes sense why no generation before us has finished the Great Commission.” The Lord said, “Just wait, we are not yet finished.” He revealed to me a fifth dimension: the river of time moving through generations of earth’s changing kingdoms.
I saw the spinning galaxies and singing stars. I saw Adam and Eve next to the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden having eaten the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil and birthed sin, curse, and death into mankind. I saw a river of time, each wave representing a generation, flowing from the Garden of Eden to the Holy City of Zion.
I saw our Father Yahweh’s hands holding the spinning earth with a family on mission resting in his sovereign care moving through this age towards the age to come. The Lord said, “I am revealing this fifth dimension to your generation for such a time as this so that you will see and understand why you must depend upon me to achieve No Place Left.”
Days > Jesus owns the Book of Life where our names and days are written. He is with us in the womb to our last breath to resurrection to eternity. We trust completely in him. (Psalm 139:15-16)
Stars > Jesus is Earth’s Cornerstone. He created every star and galaxy, knows them all by name, and they all move and sing his praises filling the vast darkness with light and beauty. (Job 38:4-7)
River > The Holy Spirit is our Resurrection Life River. He is living water that flows from the Lamb’s throne to all nations bearing fruit that remains and healing all lands and peoples. (Ezekiel 47:12)
Holy City > Jesus is our Coming King. He will return in power bringing with him a shining city. He will remake the heavens and the earth and inaugurate the next age. (Revelation 21:2-4)
Confidence > Jesus is our Sure Foundation. We trust him to lead, guide, and direct us. Everything we do, every decision we make, every step we take: we do it all through him. (Philippians 1:6)
Practical Next Steps
Activity: Drink tea or coffee with your team. Set apart some time to sing and pray for one another. Read through the vision and verses.
Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you about these dimensions of Heaven’s kingdom flowing to earth’s kingdoms in our generation. For each dimension, prayerfully discuss some questions >
- What do we learn about God?
- What do we learn about people?
- How can our team apply this revelation to our lives, families, and plans?
- In the next 10 days, what are three simple next steps for me?
- What is the Holy Spirit saying to our churches today?
