I heard, “There shall be an EXPONENTIAL INCREASE for The Body of Christ in all areas,” and then I heard, “Go fish!” LOL!
But I knew The LORD was not talking about the game. He is talking about being “Fishers of Men and Women!”
For I know and I sense the time is very short, and The LORD says just as He multiplied the fish for the peoples’ meal, so shall He multiply your Catch, Beloved!
What was meant to feed one will feed now feed 5 THOUSAND and more!
He is stretching that which you have and increasing it rapidly and in extraordinary proportions! 5 is the number of grace.
Jesus started out with 5 fish and ended with 10 thousand and probably more! Some commentators think 15 thousand!
And I hear to go out into the DEEP! Do not be afraid of speaking the DEEP THINGS of God. THIS is what will attract people!
They are looking for the Miracles of Jesus and The Father says, “They are in your hands, My Child, for GREATER EXTRAORDINARY EXPONENTIAL things shall you do!”
“Beloved. Give Me what you have, My Child, so that I can increase it. For I AM multiplying the works of your hands.
As miracles were wrought through the hands of Paul, so shall it be with you. I AM multiplying whatever you have into ALL that I AM ABLE to do!
Is anything impossible with Me? No, Dear One. I shall prosper you and give you favor in all things.
I AM lengthening your cords and strengthening your stakes.
I AM stretching forth the curtains of your tent and enlarging the place of your influence.
I will turn what you have, the “five loaves,” into five thousand, ten thousand, even fifteen thousand and more.
Give Me what you have and I shall EXPONENTIALLY increase it! There is no end to My Supply.
I AM the God of increase, My Child! Have you not read, “The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children. You are blessed of The LORD which made heaven and earth.”
Many shall see My Blessing upon you and come to Me.
The River of God is flowing, Beloved and TEEMING with Life! Here is My promise to your generation: “That The LORD your God would increase you a thousand times over and bless you as He has promised!”
I AM sending you forth, My Child, and you shall be a Fisher of men, for I AM working with you and I shall confirm The Word with Signs and Wonders and Miracles following!”
EXPONENTIAL : Characterized by or being an extremely rapid increase (as in size or extent) Rising or expanding at a steady, rapid rate. Increasing by extraordinary proportions.
Did the crowd number “about five thousand” or were there many more?
The “MEN” (John 6:10) numbered about 5,000. Including the “WOMEN AND CHILDREN”, the crowd probably numbered about 15,000 or more. (Bibleversestudy) (Matthew 14:21, John 6:10)
“Come, follow Me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” And at once they left their nets and followed,”” Matthew 4:19-20
“Then, as soon as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread. Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish which you have just caught.” Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish,”ONE HUNDRED and FIFTY THREE”; and although there were so many, the net was not broken.” John 21:9-11
(In Hebrew, every letter has a number attached to it. The Hebrews used their alphabet as a numbering system. The numbers attached to the letters in a Hebrew word could be added together to give a numerical total. The number 153 is the numerical total for the Hebrew words “Ani Elohim”–“I AM GOD.” When Jesus caused the disciples to catch exactly 153 fish, He was declaring to them that not only was He the Son of God, but that He was God Himself.) (Versebyverseministry)

“And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” Revelation 22:1-2
“Lifting up His eyes, then, and seeing that a large crowd was coming toward Him, Jesus said to Philip, “Where are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?” He said this to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do.Philip answered Him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread would not be enough for each of them to get a little.” One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to him, “There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what are they for so many?” Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, about five thousand in number. Jesus then took the loaves, and vwhen he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated. So also the fish, as much as they wanted. And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, “Gather up the leftover fragments, that nothing may be lost.” So they gathered them up and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves left by those who had eaten.” John 6:5-13
