A dream and interpretation by Curt Eberts
John 3:16 “….That whosoever believes in Him shall not perish ….”
In a dream, I had a vision of the shipwreck scene of the Titanic. People were in the water after the ship went down and were clinging to floating debris in the cold dark waters. Some were clinging to the sides of lifeboats full to the point of sinking. People were slowly giving way to hypothermia and going under while others were being devoured by sharks.
Suddenly a lifeboat appears on the scene with a Man standing at the helm throwing a lifesaver tied to a rope and calling out, “Grab hold of the lifesaver and I will pull into my life boat”. While most people were responding to the invitation, others refused to the invitation saying, “That's OK, I'm satisfied clinging to this board. It is all I need.” These people who refused the invitation eventually perished.
Upon awakening, the interpretation came: The shipwreck of the Titanic is symbolic of the fall of Adam and Eve in the garden. We, their seed, are born in this fallen state and all need rescue. Jesus has come to our rescue us by offering His lifesaver. If we refuse, we will continue in this fallen condition and eventually perish. If we grab hold of the lifesaver, we will be rescued.
