'God is real': Two teens stranded in the ocean rescued by a boat named 'The Amen'
When two local teens skipped school for a beach senior skip day, their adventure turned into a fight for their lives, and their savior was heaven-sent.

They decided to swim offshore in Vilano Beach, but became stranded 2 miles off the coastline for two hours.

The teens started to worry that they might not make it, as they became weak and held each other up as much as they could.

They began to pray.

Dr. Tim, that’s amazing what your comment revealed about the Amen, told the angel what to tell the church of Laodicea. Proof of how we learn from each other.

Hi Christropher, just read your post and it is exactly how it happened. I believe they had a heart for God, knew Him enough to cry out to Him, gave Him the glory rather than excuse it away as a coincidence, like some would have and it went viral. Now, how wonderful is that??!!

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;  I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

Yes indeed. It would have been even more amazing if he had been singing the last verse of that old hymn....

Praise ye the Lord! O let all that is in me adore Him!
All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before Him!
Let THE AMEN Sound from His people again:
Gladly for aye we adore Him. 😊

Hi Dolores, here's what I was thinking before commenting: I simply tried to imagine it being me out there. I go for a swim, and what was probably a rip current, pulls me 2mi out to sea. I'm frantic, exhausted, and can't see anything but water in every direction. I truly believe I'm gonna drown, and freaking out. I cry out to God, as my body is about to give out from sheer exhaustion. Suddenly, a yacht appears from the horizon, and just happens to be on the perfect pre-plotted course to spot a little blip in the water. As it gets closer, the Captain sees a head and a waving arm, the yacht stops, and they pull me in, saving my life, and probably by mere minutes. Once I catch my breath, and calm down from my panicked state, I notice a huge wooden sign mounted to the side of the yacht, which displayed the name of the yacht that just rescued me, and it just happened to be named the, "Amen".

For me, personally, I would consider it a bonafide miracle; an immediate answer to prayer. I know I wouldn't think, "Good thing that boat just happened to be going by, because who knows if God heard my crys for help, and would have even answered". 😊

God works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform. Interesting that they asked before they received and they will never forget this miracle. A story they will tell their children. God does tell us in His word that we have not because we ask not.

Appreciate Christopher's viewpoint as oppsoed to the majority that want to throw the Law back in the face of two kids as ooposed to grace.

Excuse the source, but perhaps the line from Madonna's song," Pappa don't preach," applies when the kids surely know they shouldn't have done it and were moments from eternity.

My goodness, such pessimism, guys.😊

The way I see it is that, bottomline, their lives were spared by God's providence. Now, maybe He heard their pleas, and spared their lives, based upon their crys for His help, and maybe not. Either way though, their situation was covered since before time began, since God is sovereign over all, and I just don't believe in coincidences, especially when it comes to matters of life and death; human life.

Interesting that a yacht appeared shortly after, and that it was close enough to see two bodys in the water, which can be very easily overlooked in the ocean. Also interesting was that the yacht was named the, Amen. Who has ever heard of a boat named, Amen? I don't think there are too many of them. Anyway, interesting story/rescue. Remember...they're just kids, and not seasoned spiritual giants.

Excellent points, Brothers. Amen!

Let me add, though, that the Lord rules over the affairs of men. If this incident leads those two straying youngsters and anyone who hears the story to look more deeply into things of God, wonderful leading to saving faith and repentence unto life. If not, then it will stand as more evidence against them as does the voice of Creation crying out that there is a Creator.

Dr. Tim from Land of Cotton writes:
I’m glad they were rescued, but perhaps they should have prayed about whether or not to play hooky"

Correct. People completely skip the root of the problem, because it turn out good...

Very interesting, but if a boat came called “The Devil” would they have responded the same? I am always cautious about things like this because it can indeed be by God or just a “happenstance”

If an experience (ie above mentioned story)is your foundation of faith (which means you might have a false faith) then an experience can be your foundation for apostasy.

I didn't read into the article, because I heard this story the other day. Two teens swept out to sea; exhausted, and trying to hold each other up, thinking they were gonners. They cry out to God, in their own way, being frantic and scared, and moments later they see a boat on the horizon, the boat spots them and pulls them on board, saving their lives, and the name of the boat just happened to be the "Amen". Interesting story.
