Vision: Ship and Dock


 

Vision:  Ship and Dock

7th March 2015

This vision was seen on the 6th of March 2015.

I saw a new ship in an industrial dock. The stevedores and the entire management and workforce of that dock, had chained the new ship so that it would not depart on it’s maiden voyage.

Although they had neither built the ship, nor trained the crew, all the dock workers were concerned. The ship’s crew members looked too young and therefore were presumed to be immature. The dockers  hoped that by chaining the vessel, they could delay the ship’s departure, until the crew, gained maturity.

The dock workers were unrelenting and adamant. They tried to hold the ship back with thick chains.  They were determined not to permit this ship, and in the future, even others like this one, to depart from their dock, if in their opinion, the ship’s crew members appeared  immature. But to their horror, at the exact time of it’s scheduled departure, the new vessel not only glided many nautical miles away all at once, but also pulled the entire dock into the sea.

Pandemonium broke out. Now all the dock workers rushed to climb the ship and threw themselves into the centre of it, only to realize to their utter amazement that there was great depth there. The dockers fell headlong into the bottom of the vessel, but were unhurt. They noticed that there was nothing within this ship that was designed to cause harm, rather everything there was meant to offer comfort.

From where they stood, the dock workers could clearly see the wrecks at the bottom of the sea. In the waters surrounding the ship were those who were in desperate need of help.

As their gaze spiraled upwards, they noticed that all above, were fully engaged in a rescue mission.

The ship’s entire crew was indeed young. But all were well equipped for the tasks assigned to them. Most of the dock workers despised the ship’s crew members because of their youth, and screamed to be let out. Immediately, a multitude of small boats were made available for them to leave and the dockers fled from there, but the most aged among them chose to stay behind.

I saw that the gray haired stevedores who stayed behind served the ship’s crew members. They understood that the Lord had fully equipped the youngsters for this very task and they were not to interfere or offer unsolicited advice.

I saw that dock workers world over, were doing their utmost to hold back ships which had a young crew. What the dockers did not understand, was that though these crew members were young,  they were chosen and equipped by the Lord for those specific tasks. Anyone who tried to hold back these youth and attempted to chain them to the place would themselves be displaced.

I understood that the work these youth were being released to do was unique and assigned only to them.

This was the time when the older would serve the younger for the glory of God. The humble understood that, but many ministers who had decades-old ministries, did not.  The mistaken ones believed that their own skill, experience of years and success formula, would help bring these youngsters to maturity.

I saw that world over these new ships tearing apart the chains that bound them,  were racing to their rescue missions.

These youngsters who had been divinely trained to excel, would indeed excel! They were talented, gifted and very creative and were experts at the removal of hindrances. They were well equipped to deal with those who despised their youth, and resisted them.

 

Matthew 13:14-17

14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
