Definition: English Dictionary:Vision: “sensing with the eyes; perceiving in an experience.”

Definition: Hebraic UnderStanding: Vision/See, is to “Know, understand, experience, etc.” You can see with all of your senses (Bob Jones, a Prophet, bread illustration).

Word of God:

- God’s Word: Matt. 5:8, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God,”

Acts 2:17, “and…men…will see visions, Hab. 2:1-2, I will look out to see what He (I AM) will say to me…write the vision, make it plain on tablets, so that he may run who reads it,”

John 5:19-20, “So Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of His own accord, but only what He sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise. For the Father loves the Son and shows Him all that He Himself is doing,”

John 20:21, and Jesus said,“Just as the Father has sent Me, I’m sending you,”

Apoc./Rev. 1:11, “Write what you see in a book, and send it...” (adaptations of these verses)

-How does spiritual vision, that’s of God, happen? Holy Spirit. Our communion/fellowship with the I AM, our intimacy with Him. Like two friends talking together

We are tri-beings, 3-dimensional, we think, will, and feel in three dimensions(1Thess. 5:23; Heb. 4:12; 1Cor. 2:14; etc). Holy Spirit is one with our human spirit (John 3; 1Cor. 6; etc.), and then that oneness manifests in our soul and then registers in our body/brain

Like a camera: light (Holy Spirit) is shining on a lens (our spirit), that makes an imprint on film (our soul), and then can be viewed on a screen (our brain)

Our spirit’s mind & heart/intellect (Mrk. 2:8; 1Cor. 2:11; etc), will (Acts 19:21;Matt. 26:41; etc), and emotions (Mrk. 8:12; Lk. 1:47; etc), moves into/influences our soul’s mind & heart, and then into our body’s mind & heart

What’s in our spirit? Everything that’s in Holy Spirit. The mind & heart of Christ, all knowledge, perfection, righteousness, truth, grace, love, power, prophecy, holiness, etc. (1Cor. 2:16; 1Jn. 2:20; Heb. 10:14; etc)

You have been saved (justified-spirit, Rom. 3:24, 28; etc.), you are being saved (sanctified-soul, Jms. 1:21/1Ptr.1:9 etc.), and you will be saved (glorified, body, Rom. 8:23, 30; etc.)

This is a master key that locks and unlocks many doors/gates, that the Christian life is Basically a process of experiencing your position in your spirit, or, making your soul and body one with your spirit that’s one with Holy Spirit. This is called sanctification, and spiritual vision is central to it. You live/are what you see/believe(Prov. 23:7). How do you see God, yourself, life, etc.?

- Seeing is one of the main ways to hear God’s voice (see [visions], Hear [words], feel [feelings], Matt. 13:15; 1Cor.12-14). And so there’s conflict, a battle, for you to experience this, with sin, the world system, and demon spirits, but we have the victory (Ro. 6-8; John 16:33; Col. 2:15)

- Mark Virkler: 1-Stillness, 2-Focus, 3-Flow, 4-Writing (Hab. 2/John 7:37-39)

+++ DIVERSITIES OF SPIRITUAL VISIONARY STATE: 8 GREEK WORDS 

1Corinthians 12, “Now there are diversities…but the same Holy Spirit.” The same diversities by the one Spirit applies also to visionary states and experiences. In fact, God I AM uses a diversity of Greek words in the New Testament to express different visionary states. They are different states, for different purposes, and we progress in them as we progress in our communion/fellowship/relationship with God I AM. They can become more vivid, regular, constant, etc. And they run together, as streams flowing into one river, working together as one.

Horama (Huh-Raw-much)Vision or seeing in general, a spectacle, sight, appearance

General Greek word for vision, meaning “that which is seen.” It carries a particular sense of a “Spectacle, sight, or appearance.” New Testament examples commonly associate this word with waking visions, or, seeing while awake. Also, a root word for the English “panorama.”

- Matt. 17:9, James, Peter and John saw Jesus’ transfiguration on the mountain

Acts 9:10-12, Ananias and Saul receive their instructions from the Lord

Acts 10:3-4, 19-20, Peter and Cornelius brought together by the Lord

Acts 16:9-10, Paul received direction for ministry, the first time the gospel enters Eastern Europe

Acts 18:9-11, God encourages Paul to stay in Corinth for ministry for a while

Horasis (Huh-Rass-Iss)Sight/vision either physical or spiritual, inner or outer

- This Greek word only appears two times in the New Testament. It refers to sight or vision in either an external or internal sense, or, physically or spiritually. The Greek language makes no distinction between the perception of the physical eye and the non-physical/spiritual eye. Both inner and outer “seeing” are regarded as genuine perception.

Acts 2:17/Joel 2:28-32, Peter’s prophetic message, young men will see visions

Apoc./Rev. 4:3, “…He Who was sitting was like [Horasis] a Jasper stone…”

Onar (Aw-Nar)Sleeping dream, in general

The common Greek word for “dream” when sleeping, also called a “vision in the night.” The mind & heart of your spirit “ see” while you are physically asleep. There are many examples in God’s Word of Him speaking, communing, with people through dreams.

Matt. 1:20, 24-25; and 2:12-14; Joseph has three dreams about Mary and Jesus;

& 2:19-21 Pilate’s wife dreams about Jesus being righteous

Enupnion (En-Noop-Nee-on)Sleeping dream, with surprise

- Like onar, the Greek word enupnion refers to a vision or a dream received while asleep. The difference with enupnion is that it has a surprise quality/part to it.

Acts 2:17, Peter preaches at Pentecost that our old men shall dream dreams;

Jude 1:8-9, also describes people who by “dreaming” defile the flesh, reject authority, revile the angelic

Egenomehn Ehn Pneumati (Eh-Gen-Oh-May-N-Ane-Noo-Muh-Tee)In the Spirit

- This Greek phrase has significance to the whole scope of the prophetic visionary state. When John an Apostle, during the time he received his revelation from the Lord, uses this phrase, which means “I was in the spirit,” or, “to become in the spirit” (though John may have also been in a trance state, doesn’t say so). This is very broad, anytime we “live in/by the Spirit” (Gal. 5).

Apoc./Rev. 1:9-10, “I was in the spirit on the Lord’s day"

Luke 4:1-2, Jesus was full of the Holy Spirit [Pneumatos Hagiou Pleres]

Apokalupsis (Ah-Pawk--Uh-Loop-Siss)Revelation/manifestation/uncovering vision

- This is the most frequent Greek word used by God in the New Testament to describe a spiritual vision. usually translated as “revelation,” apokalupsis literally means to “disclose, appear, come, manifest, or pull back the covers.” It carries specifically the sense of something hidden that has now been uncovered.

- Occurs eighteen times—once in Luke, once in Apoc./Rev.,

three times in 1Peter, and the other thirteen in six of Paul’s Letters.

Ro. 16:25-27, According to the revelation of the mystery…

Eph. 1:17, Paul’s prayer for God to give us a spirit of revelation and wisdom

1Ptr. 1:6-7, 13, Describes Jesus’ revelation or appearing at His return

Apoc./Rev. 1:1, The revelation of Jesus Christ

Ekstasis (Eh-K-Stass-Iss)Astonished/stunned/trance state

- This is where we get our English word “ecstasy.” Ekstasis occurs seven times in the New Testament and, depending on how it is used, can mean “amazement, astonishment, stunned, shocked, or a trance.” Literally, ekstasis means “A displacement of the mind,” or, “bewilderment.” When translated as “trance,” it refers to one being caught up in the spirit, by the Holy Spirit, to receive what that God intends.

Luke 5:26/ Acts 3:9-10, the response of the people seeing Jesus/Peter heal a paralyzed man

Mark 16:8, the response of the women who see an angel at Jesus’ empty tomb

Acts 10:10/22:17-18, Peter falls into a trance, sees the Lord, preaches to the Gentiles

Optasia (Aw-P-Stass-Ee-Uh)Seeing a divine or spiritual person, God, or an angel

- Another visionary state found in the New Testament that’s denoted, literally meaning “visuality,” or in concrete form, “apparition.” Optasia has the very specific connotation of self-disclosure or of letting oneself be seen. The word occurs three times in the New Testament and always in the context of someone seeing a divine or spiritual person, usually God, or an angel.

Luke 1:22, Zechariah sees Gabriel, an archangel, and receives instructions about his son John the Baptist, and then is unable to speak for a time

Luke 24:22-23, the women had been to the empty tomb and seen angels that said He was alive
