AN INTERESTING VISION

An interesting vision: J CellEverything was in shades of black and white. There was a long corridor, dimly lit with florescent lighting which reflected shadows on a shiny, dark, cement floor.

Prison cells lined both sides of the corridor. Each cell had one or two people who seemed surprisingly content in their bleak surroundings. Even more amazing was the fact none of the cell doors were locked! How puzzling this seemed….in such an oppressive atmosphere, no one was taking advantage of escaping.

As I walked down the corridor, I discovered there were specific sections of cells, each section having it’s own name. 3 of the names I saw were “Pornography”, “Alcoholism”, and “Deception”. At the very end of the corridor, there was a plaque with these words: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil….” (Isaiah 5:20)

The prison guard, who had been watching me, was eager to explain. The reason no one even tried to leave their cells was they didn’t really want to be freed of their addictions or destructive behavior. In fact, they found relief and comfort in them. This was because they had become the means to escape or avoid aspects of themselves or life they didn’t want to deal with.

There it is….we resist giving up something that we have made our escape! It makes wrong right and bad good, but ultimately robs us of freedom.

Wow..may we  not be bound by seeking relief and peace in things that are ungodly!
