The boats on the water
In June 2016 I had a vision, I was on my bed praying in the Spirit when the vision came. I saw many small boats, maybe 40 or 50, floating on the ocean. Above the ocean were dark clouds forming a layer. The sea itself was dark in colour, and was moving about gently. In the boats were people, and the people were all asleep. I understood that I needed to pray.
I started to pray in the Spirit. As I prayed, the clouds opened up. Bright light, yellow and white shone through where the clouds were clearing. I realised that above the layer of dark clouds, was another sky which was full of light and life. I continued to pray, and I started seeing the sleeping people being drawn up into the light, and being transported to that place above the dark clouds. I continued to pray, and more and more people were drawn up.
I understood that these were Christians. Instead of being fishers of men, they were sleeping, and not being active in their ministries/given talent. Then I was shown even more of the ocean, over and beyond the small patch of sea where the light was shining. My eyes saw hundreds of thousands of boats, all of them with sleeping people, under a dark grey sky. I felt helpless, I couldn’t possibly pray for so many people. So many Christians…sleeping…
Matthew 9:35-38 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Compassion of Jesus
35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.[a] 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary[b] and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
If you don’t want to be a Christian sleeping in your boat, pray, decide to get up and be active. Below is a link to The Last Reformation film which changed my life, it can change your life too. Here is the link to their video on Youtube. I urge you to watch it.Don’t delay, the harvest is ripe!
We can also be active by praying to the Lord of the Harvest, to send out his laborers. Intercession is a vital service in the Kingdom of the Lord. Pray for God’s kingdom to come on the earth, for God to expand His Kingdom here, for God to prepare the Bride of Christ. Pray!
