There are many ways to catch a fish. My interNET is bringing them in by the thousands. Though the enemy has meant to steal, kill and destroy My catch, he has only driven the fish to Me. So much so that many are jumping into the boat!
As the early church was scattered and grew through persecution, the enemy is once again trying to scatter My children. This has only worked to My advantage. My children are finally seeing that they need Me more than they know, and they need each other. Imagine the joy of reuniting when you come back together again.
Many are realizing for the first time that the church is not a building but the people. The first church met in homes. Isn't it interesting that that is where you are now? Where there are two or more gathered in My name, I am there with you. Isn't that a comforting thought?
Now is the time for My church to shine. Now is the time for the world to see that My perfect love casts out all fear. My children shall be the ones who carry and release My peace wherever they go. For surely better days are ahead for My bride. The spots and wrinkles will be removed before My Son's appearing. Therefore, press forward to the high call of Jesus Christ. Be a doer of the Word, not just a listener. This is no time to be sitting on the fence. Make sure that you are in the love of God in Christ.
It is time to plunder the enemy's camp and rescue the lost and dying. The fish are being drawn into My net. Will you help clean them up? This catch will be more than any one church or ministry can handle. I need everyone completely devoted to the mission of seeking and saving the lost.
I love. I gave. My best. Now it's up to you. I have given you My Spirit, My Word, My power and My authority. Now go, gather in the harvest for Me and the glory of My Son.
Matthew 13:47-48 The Passion Translation (TPT)
47 “Again, heaven’s kingdom realm is like a fisherman who casts his large net into the lake, catching an assortment of different kinds of fish. 48 When the net was filled, the fishermen hauled it up on the shore, and they all sat down to sort out their catch. They collected the good fish in baskets and threw the bad away.
Luke 5:4, 6 The Passion Translation (TPT)
4 Jesus sat down and taught the people from the boat. When he had finished, he said to Peter, “Now row out to deep water to cast your nets and you will have a great catch.”
6 When they pulled up their nets, they were shocked to see a huge catch of fish, so much that their nets were ready to burst!
Acts 2:41-42, 46 The Passion Translation (TPT)
41 Those who believed the word that day numbered three thousand. They were all baptized and added to the church.
42 Every believer was faithfully devoted to following the teachings of the apostles. Their hearts were mutually linked to one another, sharing communion and coming together regularly for prayer.
46 Daily they met together in the temple courts and in one another’s homes to celebrate communion. They shared meals together with joyful hearts and tender humility.
