What does the Bible say about Vision?

When it comes to vision, what does the Bible say?

It is said in the Evangelical lexicon of biblical theology that visions are frequently encountered in the Bible as vehicles of supernatural revelation. The majority of the time, they are a kind of communication between a heavenly being (such as God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, or angels) and an earthly recipient. Vision is defined as the act of seeing, seeing, or perceiving something in both the Old and New Testaments.

In the Old Testament, visions were frequently employed to receive a supernatural message from the Almighty. God mentions them in Numbers 12:6, when Aaron and Miriam stand up to Moses and challenge him. There were many prophets who had visions (see Ezekial 1:1, Hosea 12:10), but there were also false prophets who claimed to have visions. The visions of the Old Testament prophets were not just about what they were seeing at the time, but they were also frequently filled with information about a future state or promise as well.

Visions are predominantly found in the books of Revelation, Luke, and Acts, but they can be found in other books as well. In Luke 1:26-27, the angel Gabriel informs Mary of her good fortune as she conceives Jesus despite the fact that she has never been with a man. The apostles received visions to prepare them for events, encounters, and ministry (Acts 9:10-19), and they also had visions to prepare them for death (Acts 9:20). The sermon delivered by Peter on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:17) confirmed the prophecy of the Old Testament prophet Joel concerning an outpouring of visions.

Is it necessary to have vision in order to have a calling?

If God has given you a vision, you must prayfully put that vision into action using the resources God has placed in your hands. However, having a calling does not necessitate the presence of a vision.

The thing that God wants you to do with your life now and in the future is known as a calling. Some Christians are called to special vocations in which they will devote their entire lives. Many Christians, on the other hand, find that their calling changes as the seasons of life change, as they mature both physically and spiritually, and as the needs of those around them change.

Sometimes you'll have specific talents or gifts that connect to your vocation, but God can also offer fresh talents and gifts for a calling that you're being prepared for through other means. Whatever your vocation, the primary goal is to do good in the world around you (1 Corinthians 12:4-11).
