“The work of the Spirit is the bringing to be of the vision of God. . . the capacitating of persons to ‘see visions’ and ‘dream dreams’. . . The birth of the Church is the beginning of the End. . . The Kingdom of God as the miracle of ocular newness when ‘the blind see’ makes its impact on history in the creation of a visionary community . . . Therefore in this birth of the Church, the risen and ascended Lord takes to himself a Body on earth with eyes opened by the Spirit to see the future.
– Gabriel Fackre, A Christian Story, p.157-8, The Descended Spirit
