Firstly I rightfully do not endorse Christians trying to make money of the gospel, asking for money or any of the adds, or the Bibles, books, tapes listed here for sale too..


 
FOLLOWING YOUR VISION QUEST
 

(Prov 16:8 KJV)  Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.
 
(1 Cor 3:19 KJV)  For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20  And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. 21  Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;
 
(Job 20:4 KJV)  Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth, 5  That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment? 6   Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds; 7  Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he? 8  He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.
 
(Luke 9:25 KJV)  For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
 
(Luke 9:26 KJV)  For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.
 
(Hosea 10:12 KJV)  Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.
 
(Hosea 10:13 KJV)  Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men.
(Psa 34:18 KJV)  The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
 
(Psa 51:17 KJV)  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
 
(Isa 57:15 KJV)  For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
 
(Isa 66:2 KJV)  For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
 
(Prov 29:18 KJV)  Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
 
Note you want to be blessed, to see all of your God vision followed through. try to keep all of God's laws then..
 
No matter how much I say many people still do not do it.. I said spend more time in getting to know God's words directly, read the Bible more.. and do not rather read what the still mostly liars do say about the Bible, and anything else. Men's opinions are useless to God's real, whole truth still too! Let God interpret, teach you his word  and not the mostly mere, usless men and women. Stop praising mere men and women, praise God and worship him
 
You do Need A Godly Vision, (but you also do still need to follow only after, still obey God's words..)

(1 Sam 3:1 KJV)  And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision.
 
(Isa 28:7 KJV)  But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.
 
(Jer 14:14 KJV)  Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
 
(Jer 23:16 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.
 
(Lam 2:9 KJV)  Her gates are sunk into the ground; he hath destroyed and broken her bars: her king and her princes are among the Gentiles: the law is no more; her prophets also find no vision from the LORD.
 
(Ezek 13:7 KJV)  Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken?
 
(Micah 3:6 KJV)  Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them. 7  Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God. 8 But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.
 
Psalms 119:36,37 Incline my heart to Your testimonies, And not to covetousness. Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, And revive me in Your way. 
 "All that is in the world; the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life; is not of the Father but is of the world."(1 John 2:16)

You need God's  vision for your life, it can save you from three deadly faults,  impatience, indecision, and worst of all, indifference. Seek it. Ask him for it..
 
(Ezek 8:4 KJV)  And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the vision that I saw in the plain.
 
 (1 Sam 3:9 KJV)  Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

What confrontation is looming over you at this moment? Which colossus is making you feel like a gnat? Surely you don't want to surrender, and you may be attempting to be strong. If so,  have some great news for you; with God on your side, you can overcome any challenge! There are various ways to  outflank any challenge, however, one weapon is essential, that is 'vision.'

 Why is that you ask?
 
A genuine Vision of  and from God, this vision will give you the ability to:
1. Utilize God's power.
2. Appreciate God's presence.
3. Understand, and focus on God's will for your life.
4. Overcome any obstacles.
The Vision will change your attitude. Should a dilemma jerk the rug out from under you, you won't even consider surrendering. Instead, you can say, "Go  get'em Jesus!" A vision will allow your faith  to turn a conflict, into an  experience, that glorifies God.
A godly vision will enable you to overcome uncertainty, temptation or indifference. A vision will enable you to remain 'tough' when the going gets tough.
 
Now don't fall into the trap of thinking, somehow, or through someone,something 'magic' is going to occur, and everything will finalize all at  once .Oh bad news: It doesn't work that way! As, vision requires still a commitment and the excercise of one's faith in God.

(Heb 10:38 KJV)  Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
 
A commitment, and an attitude that proclaims, when everybody around you is saying "you cannot," you exclaim, "with God's help, I can!"  OK, let's get started; if you don't already have a vision from God, ask Him for one. Then maintain it and strengthen it; your vision from God, of God is your key to victory.

Keep in mind God always enables you to do whatever He asks you to do!  If God said it, you can believe it; now do it!
 
(Gen 15:1 KJV)  After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.
 
Your God given vision is till not a false alternative to have an ongoing personal relationship with God.
 
(Num 12:6 KJV)  And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream. 7  My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house. 8  With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses? 9  And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.
 
But not all of God's visions are even positive ones.. some times they are visons of negative judgments even upon God's own people.
 
(1 Sam 3:15 KJV)  And Samuel lay until the morning, and opened the doors of the house of the LORD. And Samuel feared to show Eli the vision.
 
(Isa 1:1 KJV)  The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. 2  Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. 3  The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. 4  Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.
 
(Isa 21:1 KJV)  The burden of the desert of the sea. As whirlwinds in the south pass through; so it cometh from the desert, from a terrible land.2   A grievous vision is declared unto me; the treacherous dealer dealeth treacherously, and the spoiler spoileth. Go up, O Elam: besiege, O Media; all the sighing thereof have I made to cease. 3  Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken hold upon me, as the pangs of a woman that travaileth: I was bowed down at the hearing of it; I was dismayed at the seeing of it.
 
(Isa 22:5 KJV)  For it is a day of trouble, and of treading down, and of perplexity by the Lord GOD of hosts in the valley of vision, breaking down the walls, and of crying to the mountains.
 
Godly Visions are also given not just to encourage people to repent, turn from their evil ways but also to encourage others, confirm God's will and truths.
 
(2 Sam 7:4 KJV)  And it came to pass that night, that the word of the LORD came unto Nathan, saying, 5  Go and tell my servant David, Thus saith the LORD, Shalt thou build me an house for me to dwell in? 6  Whereas I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt, even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle. 7  In all the places wherein I have walked with all the children of Israel spake I a word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people Israel, saying, Why build ye not me an house of cedar? 8  Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel: 9  And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth. 10  Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime, 11  And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house. 12  And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. 13  He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever. 14  I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: 15  But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. 16  And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever. 17  According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.

(Psa 89:19 KJV)  Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people. 20  I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him: 21  With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him. 22  The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him. 23  And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him. 24  But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted. 25  I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers. 26  He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation. 27  Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth. 28  My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him. 29  His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.  30  If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments; 31  If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments; 32  Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes. 33  Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.  34  My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.  35  Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David. 36  His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me. 37  It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.
 
(Ezek 11:24 KJV)  Afterwards the spirit took me up, and brought me in a vision by the Spirit of God into Chaldea, to them of the captivity. So the vision that I had seen went up from me. 25   Then I spake unto them of the captivity all the things that the LORD had showed me.
 
(Ezek 43:1 KJV)  Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the east:2  And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory. 3  And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face.
 
(Dan 2:19 KJV)  Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
 
(Dan 8:1 KJV)  In the third year of the reign of king Belshazzar a vision appeared unto me, even unto me Daniel, after that which appeared unto me at the first.
 
A godlly vision will cause you now to worship God. even more
 
And what about your Godly vision? Do you have one now? why not?
 
(Dan 9:23 KJV)  At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to show thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.
(Psa 15:5 KJV)  He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.
 
(Psa 106:3 KJV)  Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.
 
(Jer 48:10 KJV)  Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood.
 
(Mat 7:21 KJV)  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
 
(John 3:21 KJV)  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
 
(Col 3:25 KJV)  But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
 
(1 John 2:17 KJV)  And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
 
(1 John 3:7 KJV)  Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
 
(3 John 1:11 KJV)  Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.
 
In the very same denomination, in the Church, in the very same building, there were two  types of distinct Christians, one was false and the other ones true.. and this applied  to the City of Jerusalem as well at the time of Christ... to the wise and foolish virgins. but it also applies to the Pharisees versus the disciples of Christ.. or Judas compared to the other apostles..
 
I was once attending a church services where two different main languages were spoken by the attendees,  so thus next  two separate churches were held there in the very same building, the very same denomination as well. In the main larger service , this was the clearly  proud, arrogant church.The pastor himself was arrogant, and he was also  self employed as an accountant who  helped members of his church wrongfully to commit tax evasions as well.  In the other Church  service that I also attended the same day at a different hour the Christian people there and the elders were humble kind, loving,  gentle  one towards another and they rightfully did not commit tax evasions.
 
Now I have seen this  stark contrast more than once even in the same denominations, in the same  building and
 
(Gal 6:7 KJV)  Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.8  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
 
(Gal 5:22 KJV)  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,23   Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24  And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25  If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26  Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
 
Why does God have to show us how really bad our pastors, our family members are still? 
Please do stop now even  idolizing, praising mere men and women, praise God and worship him alone. Otherwise you are in false pride.. and  pride comes before a great  fall.
 
(Lev 26:19 KJV)  And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass:
 
(2 Chr 32:26 KJV)  Notwithstanding Hezekiah humbled himself for the pride of his heart, both he and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the wrath of the LORD came not upon them in the days of Hezekiah.
 
(Psa 31:20 KJV)  Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
 
(Psa 36:11 KJV)  Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.
 
(Psa 59:12 KJV)  For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak.
 
(Psa 73:6 KJV)  Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.
 
(Prov 8:13 KJV)  The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
 
(Prov 11:2 KJV)  When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
 
(Prov 13:10 KJV)  Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.
 
(Prov 14:3 KJV)  In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.
 
(Prov 16:18 KJV)  Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
 
(Prov 29:23 KJV)  A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.
 
(Jer 13:17 KJV)  But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride; and mine eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because the Lord's flock is carried away captive.
 
(Dan 5:20 KJV)  But when his heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him:
 
(Hosea 5:5 KJV)  And the pride of Israel doth testify to his face: therefore shall Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity; Judah also shall fall with them.
 
(Zep 2:10 KJV)  This shall they have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of the LORD of hosts.
 
(1 Tim 3:6 KJV)  Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
 
(1 John 2:16 KJV)  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
 
Every time you lie and you tell yourself or others how good someone else really is, how good your family really is like, or how nice your children, your job, your spouse are.. God shows the whole truth to you as well next as to what they and your false pride are really like.
 
(Micah 7:2 KJV)  The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net. 3  That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up.  4  The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen and thy visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity. 5  Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom. 6  For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house. 7  Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.
 
(Mat 10:35 KJV)  For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36  And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
 
(Psa 14:3 KJV)  They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
 
(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

(John 3:16 KJV)  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
  A house divided against itself cannot stand (Mark 3:25)  applies to  Churches, and our homes, and our marriages too.
 
God Bless you.
