Season of the hunter?

5 02 2011

Recently while studying the bible I found a passage that has me thinking… are we in a season of the fishermen or the hunter?


Jeremiah 16:2 “But you have behaved more wickedly than your fathers. See how each of you is following the stubbornness of his evil heart instead of obeying me.” (That sounds like today)


Later he goes on to say…

JER 16:16-17 “But now I will send for many fishermen,” declares the LORD, “and they will catch them. After that I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them down on every mountain and hill and from the crevices of the rocks. My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from me, nor is their sin concealed from my eyes.”


And then Jeremiah 16:21 records:

“Therefore I will teach them– this time I will teach them my power and might. Then they will know that my name is the LORD.”


As I read these passages I think of the Jesus’ instructions to his disciples in Matthew 28:

MT 28:18-20 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”


          For many years both in the US and around the world being a fishers of men was all that was required as men and women hungered for the Lord openly. Now in 2011 I see we who are Christians must be willing to hunt going over every mountain and hill to find them. Sometimes it is physical mountains and hills, while other times these mountains and hills are more emotion and spiritual in nature.


          If we are entering the season of the hunter, we do not hunt with a crossbow or gun but with the truth of God which is mightier than a two-edged sword! So go out, hunt and seek those who are written in the lamb’s book of life that they might know that His name is Lord!
