Faith Escapes a Sinking Ship

Belinda Anderson - 11/04/2011
(David's notes in red)

I've been studying and talking to friends lately about faith and had this dream: In the dream, I was standing on the deck of a large cruise ship when all of a sudden I heard the captain say the ship was sinking. The cry of peril from the captain was so sudden that none of the lustful people below deck had time to prepare at that point and they began to panic as confusion overtook them. Some were crying out for God to save them while others were screaming hysterically and some were cursing God. I saw people running all over the ship, trying to find something that would float (trying to save themselves); everything was in total chaos. I didn't see any of the ship's crew anywhere. (This cruise ship represents the trap of the kingdom of this world and its pleasures. Belinda had all this under her feet but the rest were trapped by this.)

I went up to the bow of the ship and knelt down by the railing to pray. I heard the word "come" in a soft but firm voice. I stood up and looked out over the water into the distant horizon and I saw a bright light, and there on the water stood an angel of the Lord. I didn't hesitate; I climbed over the railing and dropped down onto the water. It was very interesting; the water felt soft but firm under my feet. My spirit told me not to take my eyes off the angel, to walk forward and not to look back. (Faith is the only way to escape what comes so naturally to our carnal life. {Mat.14:29} And he said, Come. And Peter went down from the boat, and walked upon the waters to come to Jesus. {30} But when he saw the wind, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, Lord, save me. {31} And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and took hold of him, and saith unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?)

I thought it strange that no one on the cruise ship seemed to notice me climbing over the railing. (They cannot see faith nor recognize it as a way of escape without a gift of it from God. {Eph.2:8} for by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, [it is] the gift of God; {9} not of [man's] works, that no man should glory.) As I drew near the angel, the light kept getting brighter and brighter. I noticed that I had no fear, just an overwhelming sense of joy and peace about me. Finally, I reached the angel and he took my hand and instantly we were standing on the shore. I asked the angel why were there no life boats on the ship and he told me because no one on that ship could be saved. I then asked the angel why was I on that ship and he told me it was to test my faith. Then I awoke from the dream. (We need this world and its corruption to test who it is who will prove to be chosen by their faith and its corresponding works to leave this world beast system. {Mat.16:24} Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. {25} For whosoever would save his life shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it. {26} For what shall a man be profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and forfeit his life? or what shall a man give in exchange for his life?)

I couldn't help but think how sad it was that all those thousands of people on that cruise ship died. I thought to myself, what does a cruise ship represent? I believe the Lord was showing me that the cruise ship represented the pleasures of this world and being caught up in fleshly desires. These were all earthly people who were only interested in pleasing the flesh and not getting spiritually prepared. When times get really bad, people who have not prepared spiritually are going to cry out to God to save them but He will not send them a life boat. {Luk.13:24} Strive to enter in by the narrow door: for many, I say unto you, shall seek to enter in, and shall not be able. {25} When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, open to us; and he shall answer and say to you, I know you not whence ye are; {26} then shall ye begin to say, We did eat and drink in thy presence, and thou didst teach in our streets; {27} and he shall say, I tell you, I know not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
