Call this a mini sermon, but I believe it speaks volumes…..
As we read the passage there in Luke 5:1-11 we see where Jesus was teaching and preaching and the boats were near shore.
After a while He said to Simon “Go out into the deep and let down your nets for catch!”
Simon then said to Jesus, “Lord, you know we been toiling night after night and still we’ve caught not even a small fry!”
Simon goes on to say, “Nevertheless, Lord if you say so, then we’ll do it.”
Then the scripture goes on to tell us that when they did that, it wasn’t long after that they pulled in a HUGE HAUL. Indeed, the catch was so big, they could hardly contain it.
My God, they had to call for back up and assistance, the nets were breaking!
I want to announce to somebody here today, that if you just launch out with Jesus and do what He says, there’s going to be a haul, a catch, a blessing so big you won’t have room enough to contain it glory to God
You’ll have to call for back up in Jesus’ Name!
Glory to God The boats were filled to capacity..
Now as the Holy Spirit began to minister to me this passage of scripture, there are some of you here like Simon the Fisherman in Ministry and even in our personal lives.
You’ve been toiling in prayer, fasting, ministering, seeking the face of the LORD, giving, loving, doing all you possibly can yet it seems effortless and fruitless, nothings happening, but today God is calling you to “Go deeper” in the good you’re doing in Jesus’ Name!
The boats would represent us, in your walk with the LORD.
All this time you have just been doing the norm, afraid to step out even in your calling, your purpose and destiny in Christ. But today is the day to GO DEEP!
Step out by faith! Do the extraordinary! Stop living naturally when you’re a supernatural being created in the image and likeness of a Supernatural God.
Do something you have feared to do! Step out into the unknown! Step out of the bounds and confinement of the regular and ordinary!
If you never used to pray because of fear of retaliation of the enemy, start to pray hot prayers in Jesus’ Name for the LORD thy God is with thee… Go deep!
If you used to pray once per day, start praying three times per day and watch God change your situation and circumstances. GO DEEP!
If you never fasted, or just fast compulsory, make it a lifestyle, make it happen and watch God tear down the walls that stood in way and rid you of the “this kind” of poverty and distress, failure and constant set back that has been plaguing you. GO DEEP! HalleluYah!
That stubborn sickness and pursuing Pharaoh type situation, God is saying today to “GO DEEP!”
If you never took the time to worship Your God, go deeper in His presence.
WATCH those Jericho walls come down and you go in and recover all that belongs to you, you better call for help to recover the spoil.
God is saying, “GO DEEP!”
Some of you, your possessions have been stolen and locked up in the sea, in the Satanic banks, in the belly of hell.
But the Word of God says He hath swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again: God shall cast them out of his belly.
But you have to go deep in spiritual warfare, forcefully oppose the enemy that has been fighting your family, your breakthrough, your miracles, your marriage!
You never used to sow and tithe, but God is saying GO DEEP!
Build an altar, make a sacrifice, watch Him fight for you and rebuke the devourer.
Watch Him make streams in the desert.
Watch Him restore the years the canker worm, the locust, the caterpillar and the palmer worm eat up and lay waste.
Hear the Word of the Lord and GO DEEP!
You need the infilling of the Holy Spirit and fire, you need the power, the Exousia, the Dunamis, preaching with demonstration of Power! Hallelujah!
You’d better GO DEEP!
Deeper consecration! Deeper sanctification! Deeper purification! Holy Ghost Fire!
It’s time we plunder hell and populate heaven. I believe that in this season, God is calling us from being just ordinary servants to Mighty men and women of Valor.
We need to take Evangelism to the streets. Go out into the deep, into the slums, the impoverished places.
Take it to the rejects of society for their is a haul of souls to bring in.
Go into the highways and the byways, the ghettos and the gullies. You better believe that people live in gullies too…. 😒 Hmmmm
It’s time to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the masses, to take the church from the four walls and into the market place!
I believe and I receive the Word that God is sending out a people that are willing to GO DEEP!!
To make some ripples out there. The homosexuals need to be saved, the drunkard, the lesbian.
The thief, the adulterer, the murderer, the con men, the rapist, the pedophiles, the molesters, those in prison, the e gunmen, those criminals need Jesus.
People of God, I don’t know about you but there is a Macedonian call and I will answer and God help me to Go deep with the Word of God…. There are lives to be Saved.
People are dying, people are hungry for the undiluted Word of God..
Jesus says GO DEEP!!!
God bless you!
