"Jesus Is About To Step Into Some Unusual Boats"
By Jim Goll

1.Watch Out! Jesus Is About to Step into Some Unusual Boats!

When ministering at the Healing Rooms Prophetic Conference in Spokane, WA, this past week, I kept getting nudged on the theme that Jesus was going to go from the "In - House to the Out-House" in order to reach people. Jesus is about to step into some unusual boats to meet people where they dwell! After giving the opening message, a testimony proceeded the following day from a lady who had previously been healed of HIV. She is taking "church" to the Rainbow Bar in Spokane, WA, with great favor! A local hotel is paying for a brunch, and a radical team of believers is inviting the area prostitutes, homeless and others to experience the Love of God on Easter Morning! Outrageous! The Holy Spirit is moving us to the "Out House" (out reach).

This testimony really impacted me. I realized the Holy Spirit was saying something. In the Jesus People Movement, Jesus stepped outside of the "normal churchese box" of that time. He used beaches, parks, coffee and tea shops of all things! He just showed up in unusual places. Today a radical remnant of people are arising who are inviting Jesus into their little boats, and He is showing up!

This is not to say that Jesus is leaving all the great congregations that already exist! It just means that He is going to also use some additional tools to reach out beyond some of our comfort zones and once again stretch us a bit! Watch out, Church! Watch out, World! Jesus is about to step into some unusual boats in order to catch some fish. He is fishing in the market place and among the poor and destitute in this hour. He is fishing for both the "up and outer and the down and under"! Jesus has fishing on His mind!

2. Jesus Has Fishing On His Mind - A Look At Luke 5:1-11

Now it came about that while the multitude were pressing around Him and listening to the word of God, He was standing by the lake of Gennesaret; and He saw two boats lying at the edge of the lake; but the fishermen had gotten out of them, and were washing their nets. And He got into one of the boats, which was Simon's and asked him to put out a little way from the land. And He sat down and began teaching the multitudes from the boat.

And when He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, "Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch." And Simon answered and said, "Master, we worked hard all night and caught nothing, but at Your bidding I will let down the nets." And when they had done this, they enclosed a great quantity of fish; and their nets began to break; and they signaled to their partners in the other boat for them to come and help them. And they came and filled both of the boats, so that they began to sink. But when Simon Peter saw that, he fell down at Jesus' feet, saying, "Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!" For amazement had seized him and all his companions because of the catch of fish which they had taken; and so also James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, "Do not fear. From now on you will be catching men." And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed Him.

3. What Happens When Jesus Steps into a Boat

· You must go to the "river" (today's terms) to find Jesus.
· Jesus is looking for a boat to get into.
· Jesus gets in a boat that He chooses.
· The test of jealousy awaits the other boats that also have been waiting.
· Jesus has something to say when He gets into the boat.
· He calls you to acts of radical obedience.
· Jesus will ask you to do something that you don't think you can do.
· When He moves inside that boat He speaks humility and change.
· The supernatural activity of the Holy Spirit is activated and the impossible occurs.
· It will take covenant partners to be able to accomplish the full task.
· It will cost you your history, your boat, your future, your life, your everything -
when Jesus truly steps into your boat!

4. The Importance of Networks - A Prophetic Perspective

Yes, Jesus is going fishing again, and He has boats that He wants to use. The boats represent congregations, house churches, ministries and everyday believers who will partner together for the Harvest. But a "net that worked" was the tool which was lowered into the waters in order to haul the catch of fish into the boats. Once again, the Holy Spirit is raising up fresh "networks" of gifted relationships that will work hard - even through the night.

Relationally-based apostolic networks will continue to arise with a fresh emphasis on the harvest and cross pollination. Some of the nets will need to be washed (cleansed) and renewed in order to be used in the next move though.

Notice that a net is made up of separate strands that are woven together in a cross over pattern. As we carry the cross of Jesus together, laying down out lives for one another, a harvest of souls so large will come forth that other vessels will be needed to contain all that is caught. Let the "nets that work" be released for the glory of the cross.

Remember - Jesus has fishing on His mind, and a "net that works" is a tool He will use this time to clean and preserve the great haul that is ready to come in. Get your nets ready folks - Jesus is about to step into some unusual boats this time around!

Blessings to each of you!

"Re-Mantled for Life"
$8.00 Teaching CD

There must be a dismantling in our lives for God to bring us into the new doors that He is to open before us. There are new seasons that require a change of clothing. It may requires us to be stripped down of the old before we can put on the new.

I have been speaking this message since the Jewish New Year began. In this CD you will hear a more complete version of the message in this Vision Cast. Lou Engle of The Call stated that this message rattled his world. Dutch Sheets stated it was a Home Run out of the Park! With transparency I share my heart and personal journey in this message.
