Bringing in the Big Fish, Part 2
Jesus chose ordinary fishermen as disciples & they quickly saw that with Him they took in great hauls of fish. But He called them to be fishers of men & when they threw out the Gospel net, they brought in great hauls of souls.
But big game fish must be caught with hook & the right bait. It fights very hard & the fisherman has to give it enough line but hold onto the rod till the fish tires & gives up. It's the same with many unsaved who put up a huge fight, but if we will not let go of the rod, the Word of God, give them some line, they will eventually come in.

It’s not a brass trumpet, but a shofar—a ram's horn. There are 4 different blasts: One was long, increasing in loudness, the one that sounded on Mt. Sinai when God spoke. God came down, and Moses went up, symbolic of the rapture of the saints. Rabbis say that Satan can’t tell the difference between the shofar & God’s voice. In Revelation, John confirmed God’s voice sounded like a shofar saying, “Come up here” typifying the rapture. Paul called it “the last trump” that will wake up the dead in Christ & summon the living to be caught up together to meet the Lord in the air. It is not the seventh trumpet of Rev. 8 as the “mid-trib” stance claims—meaning the living Church will go through the first half of the Tribulation. We have been delivered from the wrath to come!
