The net

Matthew 13:47-50

The kingdom of heaven is like unto a net,
that was cast into the sea,
and gathered of every kind:

the net where this verse speaks of is the σαγηνη‭ sagene ‭sag-ay’-nay‭; which in the East is merely a bag of netted rope.
It is a big net. When I say big I mean very big. I could reach upto 2.5 km long. On the topside there are floating devices and on the bottom there are weights.
Using this net the fisherman would pin one side of the net at the side of the lake and then row along the side of the lake till the net was completely rolled out.
After that he would row in a big circle back to the shore. And all alive in that lake had no chance of escape. All will be caught in the net.
People today may think they are still free, but they are already caught in that net. Only when the fisherman starts to pull the net in they will realize that they get lesser and lesser room to do what they want. They want to flee, but that is impossible.

Which (the net), when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

This shows that those who don’t belong to Jesus Christ will be thrown out into the furnace of fire.

So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

At the end of the world there will be a sifting of good and evil.
And all those that do not belong to the Christ will end up in hell. That terrible place of everlasting pain.

Many may think they can still do as they like but the net is already slowly but surely closing around them.
Now there is still a chance to turn to Jesus and be saved. But soon you may realize that the net is being pulled in and then it will be too late for all eternity.

Repent while you still can.
There is still a little time.
