JESUS : The Fish Finder
Luk 5:5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
Luk 5:6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.
Luk 5:7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.
Joh 21:5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.
Joh 21:6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
This may not seem like that big of a deal, but this was before actual fish finders, and the professional fisherman had been fishing all night long and caught nothing. In order for them to catch the fish now they had to make themselves available. They would have went home with nothing after a full nights work.
When you work for God he will bless you more than you could ever imagine. Not only did he fill their nets, but he filled them so much they could not get all the blessing in without help from another boat. The blessing filled two vessels. Without the availability of the first vessel, neither would have received a blessing.
Okay. maybe you are still thinking this is not as amazing as I do. Wait , I,m not done yet. Maybe you are thinking it was just a freak coincidence. How about this.
Mat 14:16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.
Mat 14:17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.
Mat 14:18 He said, Bring them hither to me.
Mat 14:19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
Mat 14:20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
Mat 14:21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.
Not only can he find fish in the water, but now he's finding fish on land. I don't care how you want to explain the finding fish in the water, this is not natural. Not only did he find fish, but he found ALOT of fish. To feed 5000 men not including women and children with five loaves of bread, and two fish? Not only did they eat, but they ate until they were full. When they were done eating there was still more food than when they started. Once again you have to give him what you have in order for him to use it.
