Casting the Net

In Matthew 4: 18-22  Jesus is walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee and He sees two brothers, Simon who is called Peter and Andrew his brother, throwing a dragnet into the sea, for they were fishermen.  He called to them saying, “Come after Me (as disciples–letting Me be your Guide), follow Me and I will make you fishers of men.  At once Peter and Andrew left their nets and followed Him.  Going on, Jesus saw James and his brother John in the boat with their father Zebedee.  They were mending their nets and putting them right and Jesus called them as well and they left their boat and their father and joined up with Jesus.  In Luke 5: 1-11 we read that Jesus was in Peter’s boat and He said to Simon (Peter), “Put out into the deep (water), and lower your nets for a haul.”  Simon was tired and told Jesus they had fished all night and had caught nothing (in our nets).  BUT ON THE GROUND OF YOUR WORD, I will lower the nets (again).  And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish; and their nets were (at the point of) breaking so they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and take hold with them.  And they filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. … And Jesus later said to Simon, “Have no fear; from now on you will be catching men!”

A week ago I had a very vivid dream of this exact scene.   I was in a boat and was holding onto one very large net and I kept casting it out and then pulling it back in(much like this man who was fishing on the Nile River in Uganda).  Somehow I knew Jesus was there with me and I asked Him if He would show me how to cast and where to cast in order to catch some fish.  He then explained to me that the fishing net dream was just something He was using to illustrate to me the global prayer net He is bringing together to pray for HIS REMNANT  that He has kept hidden until now.  He told me that the remnant had been hidden away as Moses had been and that Holy Spirit is hovering over them; breathing pure, fresh air into them.  He is brooding over them; loving them and revealing to them their particular callings for the very near future.

He then told me that the net was intricately woven by the prayers of the intercessors.  Every time the net was cast (faith in action) by an intercessor, it would link into another net somewhere else.  As these intercessors continue to hear My call and leave everything behind and let Me be their Guide; I will ensure that the catch this net will bring in will be so big it will be immeasurable.  Right now some of the intercessors I have called are in the process of making their nets clean, repairing any tears, removing debris, so that their net will not break when it attaches to the others.  The ones who are already casting their nets are already seeing some of the catch; however, this is only a small sample of the FINAL CATCH that I alone can see at this moment in time!

When Jesus was raised from the grave, we read in John 21: 1-8 that He let Himself be seen by His disciples, at the Sea of Tiberias… and He did it this way.  Simon, Thomas, Nathanael, James, John, and two others were fishing and throughout the night they caught nothing.  Morning was breaking (praise the Lord:)) when Jesus came to the beach and stood there.  He called out to them, “Boys (children), you do not have any meat (fish), do you?”  (Have you caught anything to eat along with your bread?)  They told Him,  “No!”   Jesus said to them, “Cast the net on the RIGHT side of the boat and you will find (some).”   SO THEY CAST THE NET, and now they were not able to haul it in for such a big catch (mass, quantity) of fish (was in it).  Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter,  “It is the Lord!”   Simon (Peter) jumped into the sea and went to Him.
