Thank you my fellow pisceans for joining together here today. We live in times of great woe. Our brethren are taken from us without warning, our world is becoming more and more polluted, we see our world rise and fall, the currents of doom racing down each channel – and then the droughts – those increasing times when the world simply shrinks – and we with it! Be strong of scale and stout of fin! Pisces warned of the end times – but the end times these may be or be not.
So let us turn to today’s topic – Heaven or Hell?
For those who live carelessly, who fornicate, who live the life of a glutton, who live for today without a care for tomorrow, who sell their scales for the price of the next worm … we see them all around us! Shoals of them here, shoals of them there! Hanging around the dark weeds, endlessly sucking at the mouldy leafage. Their numbers are increasing. How are we to reach them? How do we save them?
We know their future is Hell. We know they will go up to the fiery pit. We know they will live for eternity in pain and anguish on the banks and shores. We see the hooks … we see the nets … we see and know what they do not. We have listened to Pisces – “there is no such thing as a free maggot”!! All of us here today know the wisdom of staying close to the still waters that run deep. We gather together away from the light. We fight the temptation of high water. We resist the lust for those free flies and floating delights above. Yet we see our brethren succumb. And we see our brethren taken.
We see them go to the fiery pit above.
I tell you now my brothers and sisters – there is a Hell – that is their Hell – and that could be our Hell too but for the grace of the Great Pisces! I see and I know it. You see and you know it too! Up above. There in the light. Where eternal anguish awaits.
So let us keep to the darkness. Let us stay in the deep. Let us support each other to avoid these temptations.
And let us reach out to those who swim above, those who wish for the light on their gills, those who know not that which we here know to be true. Let us bring them to the deep. Let us bring them to the gloom. Let us go out to all the great rivers and far seas – let us inhabit the streams and the tributaries. Let us take the Good News. Let us do what our Great Piscean commanded us. Let us move within the waters and bring Him to them.
Thank you. Let us now quietly blow bubbles together …
As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him. Matthew 4:18-20
As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him. Mark 1:16-18
When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon’s partners. Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.” So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him. Luke 5:8-11
I have often wondered what “the fish” feel about being saved.
