We have said it, and many more have said it for decades before us, that entire cities will be so dramatically impacted from heaven that their nature will change. They will be so changed that certain aspects of the kingdom will thrive wonderfully there. We will see miracles and signs and wonders like we have never dreamed.
Disciples should be supremely good at bringing the full expression of the kingdom of heaven into their city and region. They are carriers of The Voice for their city and articulators of heavens plans and agenda. They are free of competition and are uniquely equipped to empower others in their heaven on earth assignment. They are there to ensure that the fullness of the kingdom's potential is experienced by all, and that all are empowered to carry it’s experience.

They are not settled on being an echo, but becoming a voice of truth and encounter in the earth.
