(Living Letters to the Churches)
by Bert M Farias (Author)
“Tell My people that heaven’s nets are being drawn right now for the final harvest.”
After receiving this word in early 2022, the Spirit of God led me to this passage of scripture in Luke 5:4-5: When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your NETS for a catch.” But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the NET.”
In several Bible translations, it reads that Jesus instructed these fishermen to launch out into the deep and let down their NETS for a catch. But they let down only one NET.
Through this Scripture, the Spirit of God revealed to me how much of the Church was not ready to catch and care for the great harvest of souls that are ripening in this final hour. They were using only one NET instead of a plurality of NETS, which represented many churches, ministry gifts, local elders, and all saints. In this day, the focus is being taken off one individual leader and one church and being put on the entire body of Christ.
This book exhorts the body of Christ toward a humility and a unity that will better position our churches to partner together to catch, contain, and care for the coming harvest of souls before Jesus returns. We must function as a complete body and no longer as a gigantic blob, lacking proper Divine Order. This partnership must begin in each city and region with God’s remnant and set-apart people.
Imagine this scene with me. An old man of God shuts himself in his room for forty days of prayer and fasting. He is earnestly seeking the Lord for insight. He is deeply burdened and longs to hear afresh from heaven. “Father, why are Your people so sickly? Lord, why is Your Church so divided? God, what is missing, and what is wrong?”
After forty days with the Lord, he comes out of his room with his face glowing and his heart on fire. He gathers his closest friends together to share what he has learned. “The Lord has spoken to me!” he says. They listen to him with rapt attention.
“What has the Lord spoken to you?” they ask. “What new insights has He given you? What are the secret keys He has revealed to you?”
He then holds up his Bible and says, “Back to the basics! The Lord says we don’t need new insights or secret keys. We just need to go back to the simple instructions of the Word and live them out. The blueprint is already there. We don’t need a new heavenly download of esoteric information. We just need to live out what is written.”
That’s how I felt reading Bert’s latest book.
