PREPARE YOUR NETS
By Lou Engle
“To be a soul winner is the happiest thing in the world.” – Charles Spurgeon
Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?” “No,” they answered. He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish. John 21:6
My friend Chris Berglund had a dream in 2018 in which he saw Billy Graham sitting in a rocking chair behind home plate on a baseball field. Billy had an umpire mask resting on his head and he had the ability to call people “safe” or “out” (it was the salvation message – safe or out). Billy also knew where people were to be on the field. Chris recognized that though umpires were supposed to be neutral, Billy Graham wasn’t neutral. He was totally invested in the game. The guy on third base yelled, “At Billy Graham’s home-going the greatest evangelistic outpouring will be ushered in.” Chris was so overwhelmed by this statement because he knew there was no way we could train enough people to be ready for this.
Billy Graham has gone home and he’s umpiring right now. Get ready for the harvest! Pray. Fast. Preach. Prepare for discipleship. Something is going on in America. California, get your nets ready. Get your sickles and combines ready. Start preaching the gospel everywhere you go. Do not let it be said, “The summer is past and we are not yet saved.” Jeremiah 8:20
