VISION: THE LIGHT SHIP
14th February 2015
This vision was seen around 27th December 2014.
I saw many twelve-foot wooden boats in the sea.
These beautifully crafted vessels had stopped and could not proceed further as sky-high brass screens with barely a foot’s gap in-between, hindered them from continuing their journey. These brass screens had created a wall in the sea.
I saw that every boat had only one man or woman seated in it. None of the vessels contained any cargo, or any personal effects or luggage.
The boats had left the shores a long time ago, yet, the land they left behind was clearly visible from these boats. In all this time, that’s all the distance they covered.
The people were in agony. Though they longed to move forward, it was as if they were being pulled back by some gravitational force that would not allow them to move forward. At other times, though they were firmly seated in the boat, yet a strange feeling would overcome them terrorizing them with the thought that they were hanging by a noose and spinning around a rope in mid-air. The brass walls, the frightening thoughts, the sight of the shoreline, were all making them wonder what had gone wrong.
They thought they were losing their minds. When they had left the shore, there had been no doubt that they had done so in obedience to the Lord’s instruction.
Yet, here they were blocked by the brass walls; having made no progress, but rather every pull and tug they experienced was pulling them in the opposite direction. They did not want to return, but the resistance to moving forward was so great, so different from anything they had ever faced in their entire lives, that for a time they just sat in the boat, looking blankly at the brass walls.
Their oars were right in front of them, but as their arms felt as heavy as lead, they could not even reach them.
They wondered aloud, “Where did all this resistance come from? “
Heads down, and arms around their stomach, each one cried out to the Lord shouting in agony, that one plea, repeatedly, “HELP, LORD HELP”.
As they lifted their hands to their face, to wipe away their tears, they noticed for the first time, the fine threads and strings, on their hands, the back of their neck, on their limbs, some wrapped around their fingers like rings.
They could not understand where these threads and strings had come from or what they and the brass walls signified.
Immediately, they spread out their hands to the Lord and called upon His Name. They sought to understand the meaning of it all.
And then they understood.
These boat people had been as puppets in the hands of some puppeteers, who lived on the shores, who could tug at their emotions and to their utter shock, they realized that they too had played the role of puppeteers, tugging at others’ emotional strings.
They threw their heads back and let out a loud scream.
Every man and woman, made haste to loosen the threads and strings and rid themselves of all things that bound them and loosen those they had held on to.
All at once the entire atmosphere changed. Prior to this all had come to a standstill. But now, all at once there was movement all around.
Gone was the gravitational pull, the resistance that they had experienced continuously. Gone were the brass walls, for they crumpled easily like paper and sank.
Excited that they were free to move, the men and women were about to reach for the oars, when their eyes rested upon the brightness of a huge ship which was made of light.
Amazed by this sight, they sat motionless in their boats. A breeze so gentle reached them and drew the boats into the bowels of the Light Ship.
Gliding upon the waters, this radiant Ship at the approach of land would gently release the specific person alongwith his or her boat safely to the shore of their destination. In this way every boat reached the exact place they had been assigned to travel to.
A warm welcome awaited these new arrivals wheresoever they landed.
Each one, at their respective destination would be immediately taken to examine the unusual problem they had been assigned to solve. The men and women had been trained as specialists and were not intimidated by the size of the task nor did they lack solutions.
I saw that on one of these isles a group of locals were watching the specialist as he went about his work with great ease and humility. The solutions he was applying at each stage looked so easy and simple, that a few inhabitants who were too clever by half, raised objections. “Anyone can do this work; look………it’s so simple! He’s just connecting this thing to that thing! What’s so complicated about that? Why do we need a ‘specialist’ when we ourselves can do it?” asked one of them.
“If God Sent us a specialist it must mean this work needs a specialist”, replied a local woman.
“ Bah! Women! ……what do you know, eh? One man in a diddy little boat, with no assistants, no backing of institutions, no other credentials, except ‘God-Sent-him’ becomes a ‘specialist’? ” snarled the local mechanic. He mustered his followers and inspite of protests, from the God-fearing locals, the rebels escorted the specialist to his boat, and quickly returned to the problem, confident that they could solve it.
The specialist sat in his boat, glanced at his watch and waited.
The explosion he foresaw occurred. He knew there would be no injuries. He stepped out of his boat as he heard the loud pleas and apologies of the local mechanic, who was frantically begging and waving to the specialist, to return.
This was a time where God was releasing many specialists to solve unusual problems, such as these individuals and groups and communities had not faced before. Those who would reject them would do so at their own loss and peril.
1 Samuel 16:5-15
5 And he said, Peaceably: I am come to sacrifice unto the Lord: sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice. And he sanctified Jesse and his sons, and called them to the sacrifice.
6 And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the Lord’s anointed is before him.
7 But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.
8 Then Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel. And he said, Neither hath the Lord chosen this.
9 Then Jesse made Shammah to pass by. And he said, Neither hath the Lord chosen this.
10 Again, Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. And Samuel said unto Jesse, The Lord hath not chosen these.
11 And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither.
12 And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the Lord said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.
13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.
14 But the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord troubled him.
15 And Saul’s servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee.
