A-Z: General definitions: Vision


Something apparently seen, not by means of normal sight, but through a revelation or dream. The Bible uses the words 'vision' and 'dream' interchangeably. Vision generally refers to a daytime event, whilst a dream occurs at night. The Bible shows God speaking to people through visions (e.g. 1 Samuel 3:1-19; Daniel 2:19; Acts 18:9). Some visions in the Bible originate from an evil source (1 Kings 22:22-23). Hence dreams and visions need to be interpreted correctly.
