Back Story: PHENOMENAL VISION EYESIGHT TO LIFE SIGHT by Rev. Dr. Leonidas A. Johnson #BackStories


By Rev. Dr. Leonidas A. Johnson

Life can be a funny thing. One day you are riding high and the next you’re so low that you are begging for bread. One day you are as healthy as an ox and the next you’re gasping for each breath of life. One minute people are singing your praises and the next they are treating you like you are the scum of the earth. Yes, life is full of ups and downs. Sometimes is hard to make sense of all the wacky and crazy things that happen to us and around us. This is why I wrote this book. I believe I have discovered a way to view ourselves and the world God created in a way that can help bring life’s events into better focus.

I am a licensed optometrist and a third-generation preacher. I’ve spent a lifetime helping people to see. Vision is what I know, vision is what I do and I want to help you see yourself and the world God created more clearly. It is easier to make good decisions in life when you can see what you are dealing with.

Vision, what is it? Vision is a physical, mental and spiritual phenomena of enlightenment. What I have discovered is that physical vision is very similar to spiritual vision and the mind is the bridge between the two. If we use a process called learning by comparison, we can learn certain aspects about physical vision and take that knowledge and compare it to spiritual vision. This can lead to a new or renewed sight of life that can simply be described as phenomenal.

With the way the things are going in the world I believe it is critical that more and more people become aware of the importance of spiritual vision and encourage people of all races, tribes, nations and languages to invest in improving not only their spiritual vision but their overall visual health and wellbeing.  

Next to life itself, God’s greatest gift is vision, because vision is the window to this mysterious thing called life.

Rev. Dr. Johnson attended Evanston Township High School. From there he went on to study at Illinois Wesleyan University.  His professional education for his Doctor of Optometry degree was completed at the Southern California College of Optometry, now known as Marshall B. Ketchum University.  Rev. Dr. Johnson received his Master’s degree at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University. “I plan on leading a crusade against blindness due to age related cataracts. I’m able to do all these things because I serve a great God who does great things and He has allowed me to do great things,” commented Rev. Dr. Johnson. He has set up a foundation known as the Rev. Dr. Leonidas The Optometrist and The Miracle Eyes Foundation. See this web site for more information Due to his work demands – Dr. Johnson lives in both Chicago and Los Angeles.

“I’ve spent my life helping people to see, both as a licensed optometrist and also as an ordained minister,” said author Rev. Dr. Leonidas Johnson. “Vision, what is it? I discovered that physical vision is very similar to spiritual vision and the mind is the bridge between the two.”

In Rev. Dr. Johnson’s book, readers will experience a concept called learning by comparison. Comparing physical vision with spiritual vision will help the readers see themselves and the world God created in a whole new light. Readers will see the world God created from a physical, mental, and spiritual vantage point that will enrich their lives, Rev. Dr. Johnson says. These vantage points help build a foundation for developing a decision-making strategy that is both liberating and biblically sound.

Rev. Dr. Johnson went on to say “The title of my book – – Phenomenal Vision: Eyesight To Life Sight – – came after contemplating the impact vision has on one’s life, not just physical but eternal. It leans into the concept of one’s worldview. A proper view of oneself and the world can deeply impact the outcome of one’s life. Jesus said I come that might have life and have it more abundantly. How can you see physical beauty if you are physically blind? Conversely, how can you have an abundant life if you are spiritually blind?  Vision should never be taken for granted and vision that incorporates physical, mental and spiritual vantage points is not ordinary but phenomenal and lead to a phenomenal life.”
