It is the desire of Zion Christian University and its Affiliates to impart a spiritual vision to all of our students through our courses. Firstly, we need to realize that the Lord desires to plant an onward vision within all of His people. Habakkuk 2:2 says, “Write the vision, and make it plain upon tablets, that he may run that reads it.” We all need a clear, God-imparted vision in order to hit God’s mark for our lives. Therefore, one’s spiritual vision is very important.
We are living in the last days and whenever “the last days” are mentioned in Scripture Mount Zion is often mentioned as well. Virtually all of the promises of God in Scripture will come upon the Church that is dwelling in spiritual Mount Zion in the last days because Mount Zion is the ultimate goal of the Church of Jesus Christ, as the Apostle Paul states in Hebrews 12:22: “But you have come unto Mount Zion…” Geographically, Mount Zion is located in the southeast part of the city of Jerusalem. In ancient times it was called the city of David. Yet, it is not the physical mountain we speak of, but what it represents for each believer in the spirit.
To gain an understanding of the spiritual journey that we, as believers, are on, we need to study the journey of the children of Israel from Egypt, across the Red Sea, to Mount Sinai, through the Wilderness, across the Jordan River, into the Promised Land, and eventually to Mount Zion. This historical journey undertaken thousands of years ago is a type of our spiritual journey as believers from earth to heaven, and from newborn babes in Christ to mature fathers and mothers in the faith.
Many believers and even churches are content in their present spiritual state and are not progressing in their spiritual journey. Even as the children of Israel did not stop, but continued on their journey, so are we called to move on with God until we reach Mount Zion. We must go on to obtain the fullness of what God has in store for us. We believe the Lord desires to birth this vision in the heart of every believer.
Zion Christian University Distance Education Program, Philippines, is dedicated to this pursuit. Our prayer is that no matter where you are on your Christian journey, the Lord will place a new progressive vision in your heart and that you will go all the way with Jesus. If you will give the teachers and staff at ZCUDEP Philippines the privilege of furthering your education, we will seek to impart this spiritual vision to your life.
