Christian Car Guy Theater Episode 50: A Plymouth’s Progress Episode 1

THE JAIL As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place, where was a den; and I laid me down in that place to sleep: and as I slept, I dreamed a dream. I dreamed, and, behold, “I saw a man clothed with rags, […]

Now I saw in my dream, that when Obstinate was gone back, Christian and Pliable went talking over the plain; and thus they began their discourse.CHRISTIAN. Come, neighbour Pliable, how do you do? I am glad you are persuaded to go along with me; had even Obstinate himself but felt what I have felt, of the powers and terrors of what is yet unseen, he would not thus lightly have given us the back.PLIABLE. Come, neighbour Christian, since there is none but us two here, tell me now further, what the things are, and how to be enjoyed, whither we are going.CHRISTIAN. I can better conceive of them with my mind, than speak of them with my tongue; but yet since you are desirous to know, I will read of them in my book.PLIABLE. And do you think that the words of your book are certainly true?CHRISTIAN. Yes, verily, for it was made by Him that can-not lie.19PLIABLE. Well said. What things are they?CHRISTIAN. There is an endless kingdom to be inhabit-19Titus 1:2

ed, and everlasting life to be given us, that we may inhabit that kingdom forever.20PLIABLE. Well said. And what else?CHRISTIAN. There are crowns of glory to be given us, and garments that will make us shine like the sun in the firmament of Heaven!21PLIABLE. This is very pleasant. And what else?CHRISTIAN. There shall be no more crying, nor sorrow; for He that is owner of the place will wipe all tears from our eyes.22PLIABLE. And what company shall we have there?CHRISTIAN. There we shall be with seraphims, and Cher-ubims, creatures that will dazzle your eyes to look on them. There, also, you shall meet with thousands and ten thou-sands that have gone before us to that Place; none of them are hurtful, but loving and holy, everyone walking in the sight of God, and standing in His presence with acceptance forever; in a word, there we shall see the elders with their golden crowns; there we shall see the holy virgins with their golden harps; there we shall see men, that by the world were cut in pieces, burnt in flames, eaten of beasts, drowned in the seas, for the love that they bare to the Lord of the Place; all well, and clothed with immortality as with a garment.23PLIABLE. The hearing of this is enough to ravish one’s heart; but are these things to be enjoyed? How shall we get to be sharers thereof?CHRISTIAN. The Lord, the Governor of the country, hath recorded, that in this book, the substance of which is, 20Isa. 45:17; John 10:27–29212 Tim. 4:8; Rev. 3:4; Matt. 13:4322Isa. 25:8; Rev. 7:17, 17; 21:423Isa. 6:2; 1Thess. 4:16, 17; Rev. 7:17; 4:4; 14:1–5; John 12:25; 2 Cor. 5:2–5

if we be truly willing to have it, He will bestow it upon us freely. 24PLIABLE. Well, my good companion, glad am I to hear of these things; come on, let us mend our pace.CHRISTIAN. I cannot go so fast as I would, by reason of this burden that is on my back. Now I saw in my dream, that, just as they had ended this talk, they drew near to a very miry slough that was in the midst of the plain; and they, being heedless, did both fall suddenly into the bog. The name of the slough was Despond. Here, therefore, they wallowed for a time, being grievously bedaubed with the dirt; and Christian, because of the burden that was on his back, began to sink in the mire.PLIABLE. Then said Pliable, Ah! neighbour Christian, where are you now?CHRISTIAN. Truly, said Christian, I do not know.PLIABLE. At that Pliable began to be offended, and an-grily said to his fellow, Is this the happiness you have told me all this while of? If we have such ill speed at our first set-ting out, what may we expect betwixt this and our journey’s end? May I get out again with my life, you shall possess the brave country alone for me. And with that he gave a des-perate struggle or two, and got out of the mire on that side of the slough which was next to his own house: so away he went, and Christian saw him no more. 24Isa. 55:1, 2, 12; John 7:37; 6:37; Psa. 21:6; 22:17
