SECOND CALL TO PARTNER WITH GOD (Pt 2)
BY PS. HENRY PILLAI
The same scene as we saw last week is being repeated but this time it is after the resurrection. Remember, on the 13th day Jesus was betrayed. On the 14th He was crucified. The 15th and 16th day, He was in the tomb but on the 17th morning He arose from the dead. We are in the 17th day now. This is the 17th season. This isthe time of many resurrections!
Jesus has come to resurrect you from your grave, from our failures and disappointments. Where darkness seems to have overtaken, where disappointment has overwhelmed us, where failure has conquered us, it seems we want to give up, like Simon Peter and the disciples. ‘“I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We are going with you also.” They went out and immediately got into the boat, and that night they caught nothing.’
It seems when we catch nothing, that’s when the Lord appears to us, ‘But when the morning had now come, Jesus stood on the shore; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. Then Jesus said to them,“Children, have you any food?” They answered Him, “No.” And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast, and now they are not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish. Therefore, that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment (for he had removed it), and plunged into the sea. But the other disciples came in the little boat (for they were not far from land, but about two hundred cubits), dragging the net with fish. Then, as soon as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread. Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish which you have just caught.” Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, one hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not broken.’
Notice the number 153. Why would they have counted the fish? Numbers play a very important role in God’s thinking because God is very detailed. This is year 17 so if you add 1, 2, 3 right up to 17 and total the whole thing, you’ll have the number 153. In this season of 17, God is speaking to the world. He says, this is the season of catching big fish. The season of the end time harvest. Not only catching fish and men but also boats full of fish.
So from saying ‘let’s go back’, let us say ‘let’s go forward!’ God is not going to give up. There is going to come a harvest of souls like never before and I believe we will see it in Malaysia! I believe we will see it in this ministry and all the ministries all over the world. God is asking you and I to partner with Him to bring this miracle to pass. Heaven and earth must be in agreement, then a miracle takes place.
Beloved, we want to possess and occupy the remaining floors of Plaza Mayang. We want to take it as a place where the youth and the children will gather. We know what’s happening in this land but we must be sensitive to what God is doing and not be distracted and intimidated by what the devil is doing. Every time the devil shuts a window, God opens a door. Each time he shuts the door, God open a gate. Each time he shuts everything, God opens the heavens. HalleluYah! Yes, I welcome you to join hands together. I invite you with your abundance or with your nothingness, with your bigness and your smallness. For when we can come together, Genesis 11:6 says, ‘when the people have one mind, one language’; language of love. One language, language of faith – whatever they collectively imagine to do, they can do it. Nothing is impossible to them. If we believe, it can be done!
What you do, God will remember. When you leave this world, He will visit your children and He will visit your children’s children and He will say to them, I am blessing you not because you deserve but because of what your father did. I remember what your grandfather did because what they did, their prayers still ringin my ears. So beloved I want to assure you, everything you do for the good Lord’s sake, you may forget but He won’t! He said, I will remember you for generations. Amen!
When we seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, all these things that you need in your life, God will add to you. I’m challenging you to put aside these times and begin to fast and begin to cry out to God as hungry hands lifting up to the Heavens, grabbing that which God has already given to us and bringing it down to planet earth so that the hungry, the needy, the outcast, those who have not heard about God’s love, those that have not tasted the goodness of Jesus, those who don’t know their sins have been paid for by the blood of God Himself, will come to know this at least once in their lifetime. There is going to come in a harvest like never before in history, in China, in India and Indonesia as millions upon millions come into the Kingdom of God as they see signs, wonders and miracles. Not entertaining people, but healing hearts, touching lives, changing lives. Drug addicts, alcoholics, prisoners all over the world, it can be done!
Push back the gates of hell and let people free! I invite you to give, whatever God puts on your heart to give. Invest in souls! Invest in eternal life! He said you will no longer catch fish but you will start fishing for men. HalleluYah! Come out of your caves! Come out of your lack! Come out of the fear! And say, ‘Lord, I’ll join hands with you.’

In Acts 2:17-18, Peter’s Pentecost message will flow over Grace. Upon the outpouring of the Spirit in the upper room, there was a declaration that Peter made and this is the declaration I am making tonight over Grace.
‘Grace declares a transcending, multi-generational, gender inclusive and supernatural experience breaking all culture, exclusive gender base and age restriction. Grace will awaken God’s people to the largest purpose He has of reaching to the world around, as through all who would be available to work on and through His Spirit. The result for Grace will be not only the salvation of all those who repent, who call upon the name of the Lord but also Grace will walk in a dimension of signs and wonders like in the church of Acts!’
Are you ready? Are you truly ready? There is something you need to understand, to see the unseen, to start to move and walk in the Spirit, it will cost you to have a relationship with the Father. It will cost you to know that death and life is in the power of the tongue!
