Jer 16:16 Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.
If you are not one of the lords true people and think you will use survival skills and you will be fine, a bunker will not save you, food, arms will not save you, only Jesus will save you. Many who are survivalist- preppers over look the one item more important than any other item, it is the Holy Bible and the lords presence.. If you have a lot of stuff, and not Jesus, you are in danger and you honestly have nothing, your final destination will not be heaven
You can have a escape route and a map, you may have great skills all of this means NOTHING if you do not have the lords map, the holy Bible.
Jer_16:16. Behold, I will send for many fishers— It is common with the sacred writers to represent enemies and oppressors under the metaphor of fishers and hunters, because they use all the methods of open force and secret stratagem, to make men their prey. These two similitudes imply, that the Chaldeans should make an entire conquest of their whole land, and strip it of its riches and inhabitants.
I will send for many fishers;. . .I will send for many hunters.
Fishers and hunters
These refer to the successive invaders of Judea. As to “hunters,” see Gen_10:9. Nimrod, “ the mighty hunter,” the first founder of an empire on conquest. The Chaldees were famous in hunting, as the Egyptians, the other enemy of Judea, were in fishing.
(1) “Fishers” expresses the ease of their victory over the Jews as that of the angler over fishes.
(2) “Hunters” indicates the keenness of their pursuit of them into every cave and nook. It is remarkable the same image of “fishers” and “fish” is used in a good sense of the Jews’ restoration, implying that just as their enemies were employed by God to take them in hand of destruction, so the same shall be employed for their restoration (Eze_47:9-10). So, spiritually, those once enemies by nature (fishermen many of them literally)
were employed by God to be the heralds of salvation, “catching men” for life (Mat_4:19). (A. R. Fausset, M. A.)
were employed by God to be the heralds of salvation, “catching men” for life (Mat_4:19). (A. R. Fausset, M. A.)
send for — translate, “I will send many”; “I will give the commission to many” (2Ch_17:7).
This is a warning, it is serious, do not take this warning lightly beloved.
Read a short expert from Foxes Book of Martyrs
By John Fox
History of Christian Martyrs to the First General Persecutions Under Nero Christ our Savior, in the Gospel of St. Matthew, hearing the confession of Simon Peter, who, first of all other, openly acknowledged Him to be the Son of God, and perceiving the secret hand of His Father therein, called him (alluding to his name) a rock, upon which rock He would build His Church so strong that the gates of hell should not prevail against it. In which words three things are to be noted: First, that Christ will have a Church in this world. Secondly, that the same Church should mightily be impugned, not only by the world, but also by the uttermost strength and powers of all hell. And, thirdly, that the same Church, notwithstanding the uttermost of the devil and all his malice, should continue.
Which prophecy of Christ we see wonderfully to be verified, insomuch that the whole course of the Church to this day may seem nothing else but a verifying of the said prophecy. First, that Christ hath set up a Church, needeth no declaration. Secondly, what force of princes, kings, monarchs, governors, and rulers of this world, with their subjects, publicly and privately, with all their strength and cunning, have bent themselves against this Church! And, thirdly, how the said Church, all this notwithstanding, hath yet endured and holden its own! What storms and tempests it hath overpast, wondrous it is to behold: for the more evident declaration whereof, I have addressed this present history, to the end, first, that the wonderful works of God in His Church might appear to His glory; also that, the continuance and proceedings of the Church, from time to time, being set forth, more knowledge and experience may redound thereby, to the profit of the reader and edification of Christian faith.
As I was reading 1Thess I was doing some Greek study, in it it took me to a word in Hebrew and Strong's-Vincent's gave these Hebrew words and un related to the context of the whole, yet in the Cross Ref. Hebrew the word was ruach- again,
tempest, X vain, ([whirl-]) wind (-y).
From H7306; wind; by resemblance breath, that is, a sensible (or even violent) exhalation; figuratively life, anger, unsubstantiality; by extension a region of the sky; by resemblance spirit, but only of a rational being (including its expression and functions): - air, anger, blast, breath, X cool, courage, mind, X quarter, X side, spirit ([-ual]), tempest, X vain, ([whirl-]) wind (-y).
This is how it should be, if a word is true it will be confirmed, it will have a bible base, it will fall in line with true Christian history and Hebrew and Greek words, all truth, all the word. I had my needed confirmation, this gives one with Prophecy gifts the assurance, yes, this is true, simply speak it, write it, proclaim it.

As Editor, Martin Manser wishes to thank all those who compiled or edited
the NIV Thematic Study Bible, on which this work is based. Not a fan of the NIV .
I never heard of this Thematic Bible Study different.
Psa 104:3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters; Who maketh the clouds his chariot; Who walketh upon the wings of the wind;
Psa 104:4 Who maketh winds his messengers; Flames of fire his ministers;
Who maketh his angels spirits - The meaning here literally would be, “Who makes the winds his messengers,” or “his angels;” that is, who employs them to execute his purpose; who sends them out as messengers or angels to do his will.
His ministers a flaming fire - That is, Fire is employed by him - in lightnings - to accomplish his purpose as his ministers or his servants. They are entirely under his command. They are sent by him to do his will; to carry out his designs. This is intended to describe the majesty and the power of God - that he can employ wind and lightning - tempest and storm - to go on errands such as he commands; to fulfill his plans; to do his bidding.........
I know many Baptist and reformer's, I have attended, and preach in such Churches and once even in an IFB Church-Hard core Independent fundamental Baptists, KJV only it was a small church and great things broke out, many souls saved. I , you, must become all things to all men that some might be saved, what this means is, we do not change what we know to be a truth, we keep it in at times when the place, people call for in it, while in Rome....., as we have all heard. This is not compromise it is prudent, you must know where you are ministering, what they believe and preach Jesus, I care not if you do preaching in Churches, denominations that are so dead, prayer is dead, nothing but spiritually dead. It is not the full Gospel theology camp that is the only truth and visa versa.
I also do not claim to be Pentecostal, as Azuz ST. had many, many, odd things going on like the neo-Charismatics, I am, we are, N.T. Christians, and all N.T. Christians had one doctrine, one way, and all were filled with the spirit.
Great awaking journals I read, Whitfield and Wesley, great read, the Wesley camp was getting more and more ecstatic in worship, emotional and such, the Reformers separated from them, one such place was the Cain Ridge Revival, in Kentucky, it became 100% demonic, the leader like Branch Davidian, the leader later claimed he was Jesus. The abuse is easy, it is also easy to abuse the third part of the trinity if we do not acknowledge his presence, if we so seek it.
Extra Biblical study is dangerous, in apologetic studies you must, at times, immerse yourself in things to be able to refute them, in love and tears Paul warned day and night, this is missing now days , when speaking a hard word, a warning, it must be in personal prayer and in great tenderness, tears and crying out to God . Paul did not stop night or day to pray for and warn with hot fatherly tears. This is the difference between and angry watchman, an O.T. Jer, vrs Jesus Christ .
If any person is warning, arguing , demanding, all believe as they do, we are hopeless to gain many more into the Church. The person of God must give up certain rights at times as Paul wrote on concerning eating food sacrificed to idols, when a weaker Christian was with us, we obtain, Paul said,” All things are lawful for me, but not all things are good for me, meaning he had a clear conscious and he simply had to use wisdom in all applications and places he traveled and ministered.
Did the gift's end when Apostle John died, this is what most baptist are taught, it was the Apostle, Apostolic power gifts that ended, as there are no more true N.T. Apostles re read Acts ch 1 .
Why is the anointing, the unction, the holiness so important, it saves souls and edifies the body of Christ. I see many dead prayer meetings Sat or Sun AM services, so quiet a pin could drop, Jesus wept, do you, Jesus changes not, have you? The main reason I attempt to get a person to accept the real deal baptism in Spirit is it gives an edge to prayer, preaching, decision making, instruction, life and glow to ones face. I could not imagine praying without being filled with the spirit , I anguish over the dead corps in houses of worship, and abuse in many more churches. All must be decent, and in order.
Martial law will soon be declared and the internet will be down , as well as the power. This will be the start of the coming Famine.
After the fall, note: after, you will see great disasters hit the West and than it will not stop, and will be the salvation of some believers that will not go into captivity.
Be prudent and do what you can with simple preparations.
Know your medical needs and your families, concentrate on what herbs will help, and heal these conditions.
RX and OTC's will be gone, you will need to do what you can to have enough to slowly wean off and than in comes the medical herbalist. First aid, advanced first aid, no matter how small a group you have, or just a family. You must be your own DR, Dentist, shrink, you name it.
The lord is at this time, and it will become worse day by day, continue to use these fishers and hunters, Gods anointed vessels to bring Judgment as he did with the King of Babylon, Egypt, Chaldean, Assyria, and others, judgment falls when a nation falls from its founding Christian faith, history repeats.
Our lord will use these skilled warriors to overcome the West , they will be given the power by the lord to carry out his will.
The bait has been put on the fishing poles hook, the fishers net has been put in place, the amo has been given to his anointed army of destruction. Yes beloved we are in a time of the Judgment by the fishers and hunters, allegorically this is armies, circumstances and other things .
If you do not know Jesus as your lord and savior I tell you now, it is high time to get born again, so the wrath of God will not fall on you, the rain falls on the just and unjust alike, so, as I often say, many will die that are Christians, persecution is already happening , this will increase, there is only one safe place to be, and that beloved is in the arms of our Shepherd, King and lord of lords, the lion of the tribe of Judah is your only hope. Do not put off repenting and coming to the true Christian faith, time is running out.
After you do this, you will not need to fear the Judgment of the fishers and hunters .
