The Tapestry in Government
The goal of The Tapestry Vision in government is to focus the means by which we establish and keep order, manage infrastructure, and promote the well-being of the community, back to God's original plan for His creation.
There are many forces that attempt to influence our leaders in government. Unfortunately, the majority of them believe that campaign contributions and "lobbying" is the way to accomplish that. It is our belief that the proper way to influence those who serve in the various levels of government is to pray for them -- to befriend them and support them in their efforts. The Tapestry Vision reveals a society redirected toward God, so that the decisions that affect us all are made from a Biblical perspective, in accordance with the principles established by Jesus Christ and ordained by God for His kingdom.
The purpose for this portion of the tapestry God is weaving is to re-establish the very foundation upon which government is built. The difference between a truly free society and a non-free (or quasi-free) society must be presented through clear communication and proper education. It is our mission and the call of this vision to teach and equip individuals with a better understanding of God's foundation for governing. Further, we must encourage them to act upon the principles taught, to apply those principles within their respective roles in government, and support them during that process.
The Tapestry Vision Network is forming small groups of "Kingdom Builders" -- people who stand for truth, operate with integrity, whose ethics are morally strong and sound, and are involved in some level of government work. It is our belief that as we educate and communicate the freedom that the Creator intended for us to have, the citizens of this land will stand and defend that freedom from all tyranny.
The passage of scripture below is typically heard most often during the Christmas season. Read it. Study it carefully. You'll discover that it is far more than a familiar part of George Frederick Handel's "Messiah". It is our Creator's promise for a government of peace and prosperity!
"For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace, there will be no end. Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this."
