NO VISION,NO TEMPTATIONS 1
Temptation is never for the visionless but temptation I believe is always thrown in the path of the visionary.
The visionless person is already trapped to perish and does not need to be tempted to fail. Proverbs 29:18
What is vision? In a nutshell vision is purpose in pictures.
Fortunately this was one of the reasons why the comforter was manifested at the day of Pentecost.
And it shall come to pass afterward, [that] I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:.. Joel 2:28
This was fulfilled when Peter declared it Acts 2:14-18 to the people who scorned the early church for speaking in tongues.
This is how come many young folks today are burdened with strange desires in solving the world’s problems through the help of the helper.
You will never read anywhere in the bible that the visionless was tempted.
Temptation always comes from the devil to cease the progress of an individual or group of people from carrying on their God ordained purpose in enhancing God’s kingdom over the devil’s.
Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. James 1:13-14
Many great people couldn’t achieve their goals because of the temptations the enemy enticed them with.It hindered their progress and blinded their focus from attaining their goal.
Every visioneer must expect temptations from the enemy to be able to stand as a soldier of the lord because the devil never wastes his arsenals.He fires them on purpose. But if he does and the target has dropped their guard by been enticed through distractions and deceptions,the target will be trapped.
For, lo, the wicked bend [their] bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? Psalm 11:2-3
Every visioneer without the needed foundation will never attain the goal set for them.
The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.Proverbs 3:19
I like the parable Jesus gave in Luke 6 concerning two men who decided to build houses.Building a house in the bible almost always means building a vision.The foolish man’s house collapsed because his foundation was sand whiles the wise man’s house stood.The difference between those two houses were not the test or temptation that was subjected to it but their foundation.
Why was the foundation necessary?
