"Google Fishing"

GOOGLE FISHING is today’s expression of the many that are joining the disciples in Mark 1:17 (KJV) where they are following the instruction that Christ gives...“Come ye after me”:

17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.

Fishers of men are Christ helpers who seek out the ones who hunger for meat, a substance that scripture uses to describe God’s Word.
Meat is something today’s hungry find themselves fishing the internet for as simply typing in a key religious word or phrase on a Google Search Engine gets results; they are the fish that fishers of men hunt when responding to Christ when He cries: “come ye after me”.
Feeding of this sort can be labeled “GOOGLE FISHING” as it increases the biblical knowledge you have; Jeremiah 16:16 (KJV) shows the part it plays in God prophesying that His fishers and hunters will be amongst you today:

Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.

God also fishes and hunts as Ezekiel 47:9-10 (KJV) shows a great multitude of fish in His rivers and the fact that there is not a shortage of Fishers and Hunters to net them:

9. And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.
10. And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kind, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.

Now is the time to take a stand and Google Fishing gets you started. An example of its productivity is print from the News Journal reaching God’s Great Sea. A recent email from Becky G shows it happening:

Dear Pastor Johnson,

My name is Becky G and I have been studying our Father's Word in depth for a few years now. Today while doing a Google search for key words: "Kenites farming", I ran across your commentary entitled, "Cain is Not in Adam's Bloodline" and I liked what I read. I looked up your website and also read a few more of your works. I think your teachings seem to line up exactly as it is written in the Word and that is hard to find in this world we are living in today.

I want to thank you for teaching Truth. I also would like to know if you have an email news letter that I could sign up for? It was nice to find you. Please write back. God Bless.

Regards in Christ,
Becky G

 


 

Inquiries such as this lead to understanding why God’s use of simple things like hunting and fishing gains your attention and leads to you seeking Him.

Zephaniah 1:10 (KJV) shows you at Solomon’s Fish Gate and the noisiness of your cry there , a howling that GOOGLE FISHING may be adding to the great crashing from the hills:

And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and an howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills.

Google Fishing is fishing for meat and when Christ appears to His disciples for the last time in John 21:10 (KJV) He says:

Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.

You too are appearing before Christ in these last times and in John 21:11 (KJV) you see His presence filling nets, something Google Fishing does for you:

Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.

Google Fishing puts many great fishes in your net showing it not to be broken.
Hunters and fishermen are out there and they are fishing for the Lord; Google Fishing shows you amongst them.
Have you tried it? It shows you responding to His cry: “Come ye after me”!
