10 In Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called to him in a vision, “Ananias!” “Yes, Lord,” he answered.11 The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying. 12 In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight.”
We taught by his example to be more careful to seek out the lost sheep.
The word “In a vision” means a sign testifying to God’s presence. The purpose of visions was to confirm the majesty of the Word so that we should believe it. God often gave the prophets this kind of confirmation; the Word says he spoke to his servants through visions or dreams.
