Fishers sent out.

Jeremiah 16:16 “Behold, I am sending for many fishers, declares the Lord, and they shall catch them. And afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the clefts of the rocks.” Brethren, God speaks on the impending judgment upon Israel where all of its inhabitants will perish for worshipping false gods and idols-more so than even their ancestors. Yahweh then states the Jewish people would be punished doubly for their continuous rebellion against Him. However, after that takes place, Yahweh reveals reveals here that He will call His people back to a greater extent than the days of deliverance from Egypt. God’s future intentions were to use the nations (foreigners/Gentiles) to bring back the Jewish people to repentance and faithfulness. Thus, many of us as Gentiles, have been called “fishers of men” (Matt. 4:19) which correlates to this context in Jeremiah 16:16. How great is Jesus Christ to use this language in the old and new! They’re like little nuggets of gold that ignite your heart! Today, God has fulfilled His final and ultimate repentance call through His Son, Yeshua. We are to act as fishers, or hunters, and being people to the saving faith of Jesus Christ! Speak about the law, sin, repentance, faith alone and grace alone. Talk about these things as you fish for souls today! God bless you.
