A friend of mine, a businessman, happened to call me one day and tell me that his brother had suffered a massive heart attack and died within an hour of his being admitted in the Intensive Coronary Care Unit. I sympathized with him and consoled him at the loss and asked a few family details. I said I would pray for him that the Lord would grant him peace in this tragic circumstance that he faced.
A couple of days later, the Lord showed me a dream one night regarding this friend of mine. He was lying in an ICCU with many doctors and nursing staff surrounding him. In the dream I saw that he was going into cardiac arrest and despite the best efforts of the medical staff, he was pronounced dead.
When I woke up the next morning, I realized that the Lord was telling me that my friend would suffer the same fate as his brother and since my friend was an unbeliever though a Christian, God was telling me that I should warn him of this and also pray that this may not happen.
I chose an oppurtune moment the next day, called my friend to the clinic that I run and very plainly told him what I had seen in the dream. He seemed to listen and shake his head in the affirmative when I told him that he must get right with God and pray about that matter urgently.
While leaving, he told me that he would be going abroad for a business trip the next week and that I keep him and his trip in my prayers.
I prayed about the matter that evening before I slept. A week later I received a call from an unkown person asking me whether I was the family doctor of such and such a person. On enquiring further, I came to know that my friend who had gone abroad for the business trip had a heart attack and was admitted in the ICCU of one of the big hospitals in Thailand. It was evident that my friend had taken for granted the message of the dream that I had told him about. Evidently he had not taken the matter seriously and prayed about it.
The phone kept ringing regularly for a few days telling me the progress of my friend's health. I kept praying for his recovery and finally he was able to travel back home. He recovered fully, but still has not taken a decision to live for the Lord.
God gives warnings to many unbelievers through his servants, yet many make light of it and suffer the consequences. Still because of the prayers of God's faithful, God has compassion on them and gives them another lease of life.
