Catching Any Fish?
I saw a vision today of the inside of a church building complete with wooden pews. I saw people in the pews with fishing rods and each were casting them as if they were casting into a body if water. However, as you might have guessed, the lines cast out went no further than the church walls although some made it out the church windows. In the natural if anyone walked into a church and saw what I described above they’d high tail it out of there thinking the people were crazy.
You can’t fish from the inside of a church building or any building for that matter. In order to have any hopes of catching Any Fish, i.e., souls, one needs to be out in his/her rowboat in and among the sea of humanity where they, like those they hope to catch for the Lord, are exposed and not insulated as they would be in a building, especially the building called church, from the elements.
Remember that the great commission commanded us to ,”go and tell”, making disciples and teaching them to obey the teachings of Christ so that they in turn could go fishing, fully equipped, which, by the way, is the purpose of the 5 fold ministry, making disciples and teaching them to follow Christ’s commands.
