The tanker

I’m aware that this weekend was of some import to Anglicans south of the border.  Most of what can be said, has been said.  So I’ve just been listening and observing the reaction.

Anyway, something came to me yesterday that may have some bearing.  Now, a little disclaimer is needed here.  Firstly, this is hot off the press, as it were.  It has not been tested by our prophetic group, nor have I had time for more than a brief reflection.  However, mindful of the day I received it, I thought it might be worth putting in the public domain for your prayerful consideration.

This is what I saw.  A ship that we were sailing on had its’ back broken and was sinking fast.  Indeed, only the bow and stern was visible above the waves.  Swiftly it sunk out of sight and left me and others treading water.  I had a sense of sadness and a desire to hold on, as if by will that we could save this ship, but it sunk swiftly and with a finality. 

Suddenly, as we were treading water, up from the waters below us rose another ship.  So that, at one moment, we were treading water, the next we were standing on the deck of a supertanker.  Yes, a supertanker.  Not what you might imagine as normally happening after a sinking – no drowning or rescue by another ship or whatever.  Nor is it normal for fully working ships to come up from the sea. We were stunned, grateful and suprised all at once. 

Some random thoughts on these pictures:

Sinking ships have been used as analogies for our current Anglican troubles.  So, this may have some bearing into this.  Course, it could mean something different entirely. Like I have an overactive ship imagination or something 😉

The sense that we didn’t have to go anywhere, indeed that we really had nowhere to go or any means to get there.  That it was all the Lords’ doing.

The strangeness of the vessel that was presented to us.  Like, couldn’t we have a battleship or something?  Then I got to thinking, what is it that a tanker can do?  Well, full of fuel, it has the ability to refuel many, many ships.  Make of that what you will.  Perhaps it will be that we will have the ability to touch and refuel many people/groups beyond our current Anglican world??

Course, this may mean something entirely different, or may not mean much at all.  I invite you to comment…..

Oh, related to this is the Ichabod prophecy.  There’s another one too regarding lifeboats from last year that I’ll try and post sometime this week.  This vision may be for a post-lifeboat time…..after all lifeboats are all well and good….but you wouldn’t really want to live in one forever. 

This is the Lords’ doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes.

    When God gives a word i believe He gives it to us in a way where we will understand what it is about, alternatively someone else will have a clear interpretation which will make sense.
    God bless and protect you and grant you clairty and wisdom in all things!

    If you read the Essentials prayer alert this week it speaks about being quiet and waiting for the Lord. I have the sense that we have come to the end of our own endeavours and have been praying for His mercy to rescue us. This prophecy would be in accord with His mercy.

    Amen! Yes, it seems to me that it will be the Lords’ doing – His alone….

    I thought about Noah and the ark when I read your account about the supertanker. Something rising from the deep made me think of water (see Gen. &:11; 8:2), so I wonder if God is giving you a vision of a natural disaster as well as direction for survival?

  6. Peter says:

    Yup, that’s possible too.

    The sense I have is that it will not be our doing, no not at all…..

  7. Peter says:

    So I guess the outcome is that whatever will transpire, we should trust God, for he has a rescue plan that will not be one of human endevour…

    Hi Pete;
    I wanted to respond to this one as well last night, but, better late than never. :}
    Did you ever ask Father to give the dream or vision to someone else, beside yourself, so to be sure of its authenticity? I did. Perhaps some would say that is a lack of faith. But, we both know that it is not a lack of faith for us, rather we seek one to stand beside us as we deliver the message.
    Let me tell you, your vision does indeed mean something. I had almost the exact same dream – vision. We were a group forced into the ocean (or large body of water) and we could not see land anywere. The land we had been on sunk into the water shortly after we got away. Then just before nightfall (what time of day or night was your vision?) something from below started rising till we felt it under us. It rose above the waves, like some sort of hover craft, but it was huge and it had upon it all sorts of new-age weapon of defence. It had shields that could be risen and lowered. and It was demonstrated to us how to use these things. I asked the person demonstrating the ships powers how long we would have to stay. I got no answer.
    I got the feeling in my soul that this was a sort of place of safety. Also, the battle was not over yet, that is why the weapons FOR DEFENCE PERPOSES ONLY. There were search lights that kept going over the water searching for others. This we understood to be part of our mission there.
    Well, that’s all there was. I don’t know what I was doing. I said before that I keep a lot to myself, believe it or not. I know some who know me may find it hard to believe. But these visions and dreams just keep coming, as if HE is saying IT’S TIME TO WAKE UP PEOPLE, THERE IS NOT MUCH TIME LEFT FOR YOU TO WORRY ABOUT YOUR RETIREMENT PLAN. YOU HAVE SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT.

    God Bless
    Mary
