Matthew 4:17-20

17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.

 

Mark 1:17

And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.

John 21:11

Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.

Simon Peter (1+9+4+6+5+0+7+5+2+5+9)= 53 (drew the net with 153 fish)

— Notice “yet was not the net broken.”

Ecclesasties 1:7

All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.

— Notice “yet the sea is not full…”

 

8 All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.

9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

 

Nothing in the Bible is accidental, random or vain. Everything God does has meaning and we can gain understanding from all of his Word. In light of the 153 fishes being caught in John 21:11, one must ask; why 153? Out of the infinite amount of numbers it could have been, why is it that exactly 153 were caught. Why does God even mention the amount of fish that were caught?

I strongly believe God will often use symbolism in real life events to teach us more about himself and the ways of his righteousness. I believe the story of the 153 fishes literally happened but I also believe a symbolic message can be extracted from it.

For starters let’s say the sea in John 21:11 is symbolic for all of humanity pertaining to this life. An innumerable amount of people have lived on this earth yet life continues on. Life is not full of people just as the sea is not full of water. Jesus was standing at the shore of the sea when he told his brethren to cast their net on the right side of the boat. Jesus sits on the right side of the Father in heaven. “So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.” — Mark 16:19

The Bible describes the rapture of the saints as the catching away and we find this term several times throughout the Bible. 

2Co 12:2

I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.

 

2Co 12:4

How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

THE RAPTURE OF THE SAINTS ⇓⇓⇓

1Th 4:17

Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Rev 12:5

And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

 

Sea — symbolic for all of mankind pertaining to this life.

— What is the 153 fishes symbolic of ? —

I believe the 153 fishes is symbolic for the saved believers / the saints

Psalm 119:153

153 Consider mine affliction, and deliver me: for I do not forget thy law.

The 153 fishes were caught up in a net — Saved believers will be caught up

Jesus compared ‘soul winning’ (preaching the gospel of salvation) to being “fishers of men”. 

Matthew 4:18-19

18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

 

Mark 1:17

And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.

 

 

Ecclesiastics 1:7  

All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.

 

— God speaking to Adam in the garden of Eden…↓↓↓

Genesis 3:19

19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

 

Genesis 22:17

That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

 

Genesis 32:12

And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good, and make thy seed as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.

 

— 8 souls were saved when the earth was flooded and destroyed with water

— Moses led the children of Israel through the middle of the Red Sea. The Red Sea consumed Pharaoh and his army.

Those who believe on Jesus Christ are the light of the world because we are looking upon the light of the world to save us. We are only the light because we are the children of the light by faith in Jesus. Just as we humans can only see objects because of light being reflected off the object and into our eyes. The world can only see our light if we walk in the light as Jesus is in the light.
