A man called out to me from deep down in the Sea

Post by steadygaze on Mon Jul 19, 2010 7:52 am

Hi and greetings,

I have a dream that needs a look see.

Dream,

I was in a pure white empty room, and I began to look around this room no one else was in this room with me. All of a sudden I heard a voice crying out for help that sounded like it was far away. I looked around to try and find where this voice was coming from. I looked around this room again and no one was in the room with me so I was not sure where this voice was crying out from. I then looked down towards my feet and I could see through this glass I was standing on that the Sea was beneath my feet, and I could see a man way down at the bottom of the Sea. I knelt down to hear what He was trying to say. The man asked me to help him, I asked how. He wanted me to find the women that he loved and was telling me she was the one that threw him into the Sea. I told him I was not sure if I could find her. I tried to look for the women that threw him in the Sea because my desire was for them to be restored back to each other, it was then I realized the women he was speaking of was Jezebel over the nation. This was the women in which he loved so deeply. I went back to the room and I got down on my knees again, and he said to me, did you find her? I began to tell him about the women he loved that threw him into the Sea, she was the lusts of the world. I told him he was paying a price for what he had done on earth. I watched as he began to sink further down in the Sea. I wanted to save him through the power of the resurrection power of Jesus Christ, but the man only cared about the women he loved which was the lusts of the world. He had no ears to hear he just knew he loved her.

I am just wanting confirmation.

What an awesome dream, if I may say so!
How interesting that the very one who threw him in the ocean is the same one he looks for to rescue him now. How like life! The very think killing us is what we want to rescue us. He is stuck in his mind and convinced of a lie.

I know this is long but someone just sent it to me and I thought it applied. If not, please disregard and go the direction God is leading.

Timothy and Demas by T. Austin-Sparks
First published in "A Witness and A Testimony" magazine, May-Jun 1934 Vol. 12-3
The Verdict of the Long-run

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God. (2 Tim. 1:8).

Be diligent to come to me quickly for Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world, and has departed for Thessalonica... (2 Tim. 4:9,10).

The position in which both Timothy and Demas - amongst others - found themselves at the time when Paul wrote this letter was the acid test. Various other forms of testing might leave the metal still undetermined as to its through-and-through genuineness, but when at length subjected to the acid the verdict will be final.

Paul and his position was the acid test. It was not alone the fact that he was Rome's prisoner, and that the world was against, so that his life was to be forfeited for his faith. There were more factors than that. There was the fact that in every city and town the whole Jewish fraternity was against him. Then, not only was the world and the religious system which had - in a sense - produced Christ and Christianity - against him, but he was suspect amongst many Christians themselves. Even Peter found some things in his letters "hard to be understood".

Paul's position of being outside of the world, outside of the so widely established religious order, and so utterly spiritual and heavenly in object and method, meant well-nigh universal misunderstanding, suspicion, and ostracism. Association with him left no hope of popularity, wide acceptance, or even generous appreciation. On the contrary; the shadow resting upon Paul would rest upon all his associates, and their chances of influence would be prejudiced before ever they gave their message.

The alternatives were quite clear. If the world was at all in their hearts, the utterness of Paul's way left them no honest course but to leave all that for which he stood and go where that heart-dividing element drew them - back to the world. Demas did this. Paul was too much for anyone who had a secret love for the world.

Another course was open to such of whom it could not be said bluntly that they "loved this present evil age." An open association with Paul jeopardised their existing opportunities in the Lord's work, or introduced an element of risk into the prospects of wide ministry, they could secretly and inwardly be in sympathy with Paul, but keep quiet about it, and never let their sympathies be known. They might even go as far as to let Paul know that they had a very real agreement with him, but at the same time intimate that their very usefulness to the Lord (?) would become curtailed if they openly associated themselves with him and his position. Thus they would be involved in being one thing to Paul, and another to his enemies. The only remaining course would be to be quite sure about Paul's position, decide whether God was with him, and risk everything on a full unashamed fellowship with him, believing that in the long run God would vindicate, and in the meantime a man with a mandate from heaven cannot have his ministry stopped by all the forces of earth and hell; God will sovereignly see to that, and if every door which man can close is closed, God has others which no man can shut.

This last course Timothy took. What is the verdict of the long-run?

Tragic as is the answer concerning Demas, perhaps his was the more honest way than that of those who adopt the middle course.

These three courses are presented to many of the Lord's people today, and the question for many - especially those in the Lord's service - is, will they compromise in the matter of their position and relationships in order to preserve their own influence, or will they pay the price, lose everything, and have such a Divine support as will see at length something accomplished which is in spite of everything having conspired to make it impossible?
