What is a Vision?
We all want to know where we are going and what to expect when we get there. To do that takes vision. Vision is the ability to see or observe something on which you are focusing. The clearer your vision, the easier it is to understand and attain your focus. If we want to understand and attain our focused purpose in Christ's Kingdom, it is going to take clear spiritual vision. In the Bible, we find two primary types of visions:
The first type of vision is one reserved for select individuals at specific times. Prophets, priests and princes prophesied in the Old Testament and Christ and His apostles prophesied in the New Testament. Even Mary and Joseph had spiritual visions concerning the birth of Christ and what they must do to be in proper position for it to happen.
People still have prophetic visions today and they have great value to us as individuals and the Body of Christ. However, not everyone is called to prophesy, and we want this study to include as many people as possible. That's where the second vision comes into play.
Anyone can get a revelation of Jesus Christ. Anyone can come to understand their relationship with Jesus Christ and where He wants it to be. Anyone can find their purpose in Christ and His Kingdom. This is not to say that these visions are cheap. They are the most valuable pieces of information we can receive in our lives because they are the word and plan of God expressed to us from Him. There is no more precious treasure beyond our initial salvation.
So how do we get a vision from God? Well, that's what we are going to try and figure out. While there is no magic formula to receiving a God vision, there are some steps we can take to receive God's plan for us in a clear and precise manner. Over the next few week we will look at one man's vision, the circumstances around that vision and how it drove him to fulfill the plan of God for his life. We hope you join us tomorrow as we reveal this individual and start our journey to finding Vision.
