NO VISION,NO TEMPTATIONS 2
The Wiseman’s foundation was built upon the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. Luke 6:48
What was this rock symbolizing?
And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 1 Corinthians 10:4
Christ is the rock that every visioneer must build their vision upon to remain indomitable through the temptations the enemy brings to them.
Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: Proverbs 24:3
The Amplified version makes it clearer.
Through skillful and godly Wisdom is a house (a life, a home, a family) built, and by understanding it is established [on a sound and good foundation.
It’s paramount to note that God ceases the opportunity and uses it as a qualification process for the visioneer. But he calls it trial or test as it’s done in an examination hall.The devil will always be a fool to the things of God just as his followers. 1 Corinthians 1:18
The bible exhorts us to be joyful when the devil brings to our paths this qualification process called temptation.Why?
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing [this], that the trying of your faith worketh patience.But let patience have [her] perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:2-4
Wow,the bible defines temptations as the trying of our faith only to qualify us to the not wanting anything life through patience. It also shows us that patience is developed through temptations.And patience helps us to wait on the lord to walk and not to faint and run the race without been wearied and to mount up wings as the eagle. Isaiah 40:31
Unfortunately, temptation is never experienced by the visionless because they have been blinded by the enemy in becoming why they were created for. Immediately one decides to respond to the call of greatness in the lord,that’s when they really experience temptations which the lord allows for the benefit of His people to try them and promote them. Job 23:10
A perfect example is that of Job,Joseph,Solomon and Samson.These are some bible characters that will help explain the theme no vision,no temptations.
NEXT:NO VISION,NO TEMPTATION 3
A very catchy title for such a wonderful piece of work. The devil may think he is orchestrating our downfall through the various temptations we go through, but he has no idea that God through that worketh in us patience.
