The Heavenly Vision
Acts 26:19-20 (with vv. 13-18)

I. THE PURPOSE OF THE REVELATION/VISION (v. 16).

*The highest aim or purpose of the Revelation/Vision is to glorify the Father.
* The purpose of the Revelation/Vision for Saul was to be called to minister for the cause of Jesus Christ, and to glorify Him.

II. THE PROMISE OF THE REVELATION/VISION (v. 17).

*God never calls anyone to serve Him without Purpose, nor without Promise.
*His promises in Revelation/Vision encourages, strengthens, and gives us perseverance.

III. THE POWER OF THE REVELATION/VISION (v. 18).

*The power of the revelation/vision is the power of a changed life.
*There is no religion that can change a life for eternity.

IV. THE PERSON OF THE REVELATION/VISION (vv. 13-15).

*There is only one true Revelation of God to man (other than creation), and that is His Son Jesus Christ.
*He came to earth as a man; to die for the sins of mankind, carry our sins away in burial taking all guilt and shame, and then, He rose again, bodily from the grave.

V. THE PERCOLATION OF THE REVELATION/VISION (vv. 19-20).

*Percolation is a filtering process by which to arrive at a desired effect or goal.
*The Spirit filled Christian with the Revelation/Vision is the instrument of God to reach a lost world.
