Repeating: Judgment is Coming

Matthew 13:47-52

Fishing in our area is for the most part recreational.  We fish using a pole and a single-type bait.  The image here is not of a recreational fisherman, but a man who fishes to make a profit.  This fishing operation would use a big net that could be cast from the shore or a boat.  The result would be a gathering of a variety of water life.  The parable depicts a time of judgment when saints and sinners will be separated for eternity.  Jesus focuses on the destiny of the wicked.  They will be thrown into hell which is described as a furnace of fire.  There will be no party in Hell.  It will be a place of suffering without end.
