“Where there is no vision people perish,” doesn’t mean an earthly vision, which is what drives the average Christian today. No, this is talking about a vision from heaven, “When there is no clear prophetic vision people quickly wander astray. But when they follow the revelation of the Word, heaven’s blessings fills there soul.” (Prov. 29:18 Passion Bible)
When it comes to our purpose in the earth, we constantly try to relate it to our natural gifts and talents and most of the time they are something that came through the fall of man. And, unfortunately, we constantly look at fallen man and say that’s who we are. I have good news for you, that’s not who you are.
The Bible says you are “a brand new man in Christ Jesus and all things have been made new.” You think you are a by-product of what you have gone through in life but the Bible says you are a by-product of what Christ Jesus went through in His life, death and resurrection.
Now let’s get back to the Prophetic Vision for your life, it’s critical for fulfilling your God-given purpose.
Romans 8:28-29 (NKJV)
Those who are the called according to His purpose, whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
You do realize that the Holy Spirit is talking about Christians don’t you? Every year at this time ministers teach people about having a vision for their business, their family, their jobs, their churches and themselves. And there might be a place for all of that; you need to know that God has a vision for your life and it includes looking just like JESUS CHRIST in character, power and glory. Whose vision have you been trying to fulfill since you’ve been saved, yours or God’s? Look at this next verse:
Rev 1:5-6 (NKJV)
From Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
This is a prophetic vision directly from the throne room. Through the Holy Spirit, God the Father is saying, when Jesus is raised from the dead, God will create a class of people who will rule on the EARTH AS KINGS AND PRIESTS.
Not when they get to heaven, but on the earth (now). But, as Prov. 29:18 said if you do not have a revelation of a prophetic vision you will wander astray from the position of a king and a priest that God has created you to walk in.
TWO QUICK NOTES TO PROVOKE YOU TO STUDY:
#1 Priest’s were to carry the presence of God.
The only hope the lost have is when God’s N.T, Priest (the Christian) will carry the presences of God into the world
#2 Kings were to decree a thing and it would be established.
Learn to degree the things that God already degrees. Such as the fact that you are righteous, the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in you and you have authority over all the power of the enemy. Just to mention a few.
