Careless Christian

This dream was about a youth who had a narrow escape from a gruesome accident, was hospitalized for a couple of months and after intense intercession from his family especially his mother and other ministers, regained function and strength in his limbs and became ambulant again. He was led to Christ by a Christian minister and his wife, started attending church and was baptized in water. Earlier he had led of life of youthful exuberance sometimes bordering on the wild, but he seemed to have quietened much after him coming to the Lord.

A few months after he started attending church, I saw this dream concerning him. He was standing on a railway track with his arms stretched out looking at a train approaching him from his right. 3 of us: me, his mother and a mutual friend of ours were standing at a distance, shouting and waving to him to move away from the track. The train was fast approaching, but he seemed to care not and laughed as we kept warning him. As the train closed in on him, he moved away at the last moment and when we confronted him for his careless attitude, he remarked, "It's not my fault, it's not my fault." The dream ended there.

There are many Christians who live carelessly after coming to Christ, taking uncalled for risks, involving themselves in worldly lusts, inviting satanic interference in their lives, that jeopardize their spiritual walk. This youth seemed to care not, even though he knew that what he was doing was dangerous and could lead to his death or some sort of disability. Proper worship, a strong prayer life adequate meditation of and complete obedience to the Word of God  are all very important to live a strong Christian life. Neglecting these basics can lead to spiritual poverty, which is enough for evil spiritual forces to attack the weak believer and destroy his/her spiritual life and also bring physical ailments or even life threatening situations.

The Holy Spirit did not exactly reveal what risks he was taking in this dream, but in another dream sometime later, I saw the same youth taking part in a booze party. 

The Apostle Paul exhorts the believers at Philippi in this manner....
Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. (Philippians 2:12, 13)

A good exhortation for us all...........
