For Christ’s sake, the sake of others, and your own, have a vision

Having visions from Jehovah God is paramount to an individual's spiritual well-being and to a community's well-being also. By "visions," I mean something genuine that goes beyond fake stuff in some Christian circles such as Benny Hinn causing whole groups of people to fall out while at the foot of his stage.
