God seeks Visionaries

God is looking for visionaries, men and women, young and old, who will see as God himself sees.


When Jesus spoke to Nicodemus, he said (John 3:3):

"Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."

To see the Kingdom of GOD, it is necessary to be born from Above, to be born of that Kingdom, otherwise we can never see it.

Our Lord Jesus is looking for visionaries, men and women who will see and enter into the vision of the Kingdom of GOD

This vision is given to us by the Holy Spirit when we are born again, when we are born from Above.


The Acts of the Apostles tells us about Saul of Tarsus, a man who persecuted Christians in the name of religion, even going so far as to put them in prison and confiscate their property. He was also the one who approved the murder of Stephen. (Acts 26:10-11):

"This is what I did in Jerusalem. I put many of the saints in prison, having received this power from the chief priests, and when they were put to death, I joined with the others. I often chastised them in all the synagogues, and forced them to blaspheme. In my excessive fury against them, I persecuted them even in foreign cities.

We see here that Paul was very zealous in persecuting Christians everywhere in his region and even beyond, he thought he was a vigilante.

But in fact, he did this because he had no idea what grace was, for its operation was the Law.

On his journey to Damascus to lock up all the members of this new sect who believed in a resurrected Jesus, he had a memorable encounter which he recounts in the testimony contained in Acts 26:13-20:

"About midday, O king, I saw on the way a light from heaven shining around me and my companions, brighter than the sun. Then we all fell to the ground, and I heard a voice saying to me in the Hebrew language, "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It would be hard for you to resist the goads. I said, 'Who are you, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. But arise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee to make thee a minister and a witness of the things which thou hast seen, and of those things for which I shall appear unto thee. I have chosen you from among this people and from among the Gentiles, to whom I am sending you, that you may open their eyes, that they may turn from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance with those who are sanctified through faith in me. Therefore, King Agrippa, I did not resist the heavenly vision: first to those in Damascus, then in Jerusalem, in all Judea, and among the Gentiles, I preached repentance and conversion to God, with the practice of works worthy of repentance."


Saul would later become the Apostle Paul because he had a heavenly vision that completely changed the course of his life; he says: "I did not resist the heavenly vision."

It was this vision, this revelation of Jesus Christ that gave Paul a completely different orientation and, in a way, we can say that he became God's visionary.

Paul's vision was now to obey his Lord and to become the Apostle to the non-Jews, the Apostle to the Gentiles.


Jesus had already communicated this vision to the apostles and it is in Matthew's gospel that he will give the commission (Matthew 28:19-20):

"Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."


The vision of an "Open Heaven" is found in both the New Testament and the Old Testament:

Gospel of John 1:51 and Genesis 28:10-22

When Jesus met Nathanael, he was impressed because Jesus had seen him under the fig tree, so Jesus said to him:

"Truly, truly, you will now see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."

Jesus is obviously referring to "Jacob's ladder" where it is written in Genesis 28:12:

"Jacob had a dream. And behold, a ladder was leaning on the earth, and its top reached to heaven. And behold, the angels of God went up and down on it."


Jesus opens the door to Heaven

We understand, then, that Jesus Christ opens the door to Heaven and allows us to have this vision of the ladder of grace that connects earth to Heaven and brings us into the Kingdom.

We as sons and daughters of God, born again, have access to the heavenly Kingdom through the precious blood of Jesus. As Hebrews 10:19-20 states:

"So then, brethren, since we have by means of the blood of Jesus a free entrance into the sanctuary by the new and living way which he inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, of his flesh"


Our vision must be Heavenly, we are called to see what is in the Kingdom of God to which we have access through the precious blood of Christ.

A visionary according to God is one who sees what God is doing and then sets out to do what he has seen according to God's counsel, just as Jesus did (John 5:19):

Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: and whatsoever the Father doeth, that doeth the Son also likewise.


Paul said: "I did not resist the heavenly vision", in other words, he said: "I did not disobey what was revealed to me from heaven". What he saw and understood he immediately put into practice (Acts 26:20):

"For I first declared the truth in Damascus. Then I went to Jerusalem and to all our nation, and even to other nations, telling people everywhere that they should repent and turn to God by demonstrating that their lives had been changed by God."


Lift up your eyes and look

Jesus once said to the disciples in John 4:35:

"Do you not say that there are still four months until the harvest? Behold, I say to you, look up and see the fields already being made white for harvest."

Once again Jesus tells us, his disciples, to stop looking at the impossibilities and to lift our eyes to see what God is doing in heaven so that it may come to earth: "Thy will be done on earth as it is done in heaven", this is the text we find in the prayer of the Lord's Prayer, but how do we apply it?


Vision means communion with Heaven

Indeed, the vision of God is revealed day by day, when we are in communion with Heaven. It is then that we will receive the true vision that will give us success in all that we undertake to serve our Lord.


This is the time for you and me to see as God sees, to get to work to reap the harvest of souls that is ripe to be harvested.

Let us be prepared and available to enter the harvest to take the fruit. Jesus told us that when we go to preach the gospel, he will be with us and then signs and wonders will follow the preaching of the Good News.


Recently we were in Paris for a Gospel and Miracles evening; after the preaching we took time to pray for people suffering from various illnesses, and here are some testimonies that Heaven was on earth.

  • One lady who was there for the first time testified that the severe pain in her back had suddenly disappeared and she could move without feeling the pain.

  • Another person who had severe pain in his knees was also healed, a young man who had a particular condition with his kidney was healed and the pain that had been there for a long time disappeared.

  • A young girl had been suffering from severe migraines for several months and no medication helped her; as a result of the prayer, the headaches completely stopped.

  • There were many testimonies of salvations and healings.

You see, when we receive the vision from Heaven of GOD's Glory, then we enter fully into our destiny.

It is by faith that we will be able to fulfil this vision of winning souls for eternity.


Jesus says in John's gospel in chapter 14 and verse 12

"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will do the works that I do, and greater works than these he will do, because I am going to the Father."

What Jesus says is still for today, for if we follow Him by and in faith, that is, by believing in HIM, then this promise will be fulfilled and you and I will do the same mighty miracles that He did, even greater miracles than those that Jesus did because HE is with his Father!

See already the miracles taking place before your eyes, miracles of salvation, deliverances and healings.


I invite you to continue this meditation by reading my book entitled: "31 Keys to the Heart of Salvation, Deliverance and Divine Healing". This book will give you a vision that will enable you to go into the harvest and save souls for the glory of God. I have written many real life examples of what God is doing even today. This is a book for followers of Jesus Christ, you can order it via our website www.apollos.eu


Proverbs 28:18 points out that:

"When there is no clear prophetic vision, people quickly go astray. But when you follow the revelation of the Word, the bliss of heaven fills your soul." (TPT)


Visions can also come in a dream or a vision that God gives you at night. However, these visions are really necessary because otherwise you could become a lawless people walking without the direction God gives.


God's visions give us the direction of what to do, and also where to go, just like Paul on his missionary journeys (Acts 16:9):

"And Paul had a vision in the night: a Macedonian man stood and asked him, saying: Go over to Macedonia and help us."

Paul and his team received a clear vision of where they should go and what they should do, and so the first church on the European Continent was born.


Let us seek to have a clear and precise vision of what God wants from us and let us get to work in the name of Jesus Christ.
