"And I will compensate you for the years the locusts have eaten—the larval locust, the hopper locust, and the fledging locust" (Joel 2:25a).
Recently during worship, I began to see in the Spirit the movie, Titanic, as though it was beginning to play backwards (in reverse). This movie started out at the very tragic end where people had died and their bodies lay frozen on rafts in the ocean. But then, the ice on the frozen bodies and rafts began to melt. And then the dead started breathing again and moving. I then saw this huge Titanic ship begin to slowly rise up out of the sea--with its tail rising upward as in slow motion.
I sense the Lord saying, "I am restoring and resurrecting what has died and has been lost down through the generations of the great moves of My Spirit!"
I believe I saw what the next move of God through worship will look like.
'Titanic' Worship Is Coming!
The lifeless orchestra players on this rising Titanic began breathing new life again, and this time, it was as though heaven's angels were singing with the orchestra over the earth, land and sea. The songs now were not songs of goodbye or hoping to go to heaven through God's amazing grace, but these new songs were actually pulling on heaven, and bringing heaven down to earth.
These new songs were songs with so much unspeakable joy and eternal life in them, that the deceased people on the ship and the rafts--danced out of their frozen watery graves, worshiping God in the highest. The sea was now giving up her dead.
A Change in Captains: 'I Will Take Over From Here!'
All that was lost had been regained and then some. As this huge ship continued to float with a heavenly stability, the Titanic, as big as it once was, appeared to grow even larger. I then saw the captain of the ship and recognized him as resembling the Son of God. I heard Him shouting with love, "I will take over from here!" Immediately His voice echoed and was heard over many waters and lands. Lifeboats were being tossed overboard as far as the eye could see, as people from all nations, tribes and tongues were reaching to Him and crying out to be saved. Multitudes were now coming in out of their troubled waters.
This movie continued and seemed to end before the huge iceberg was hit which caused the catastrophic tragedy. Being a little concerned about what had crippled the ship, I asked the Lord, "What about that huge iceberg that had brought this Titanic down? I sensed Him saying, "Forget those things that are behind you and sail on!"
