The Lord’s moral lesson in His Dragnet parable is this: There is a day of reckoning coming—the day when the Lord will separate true believers from pretend believers. Jesus Christ also is teaching us that being caught in the net in no way means that every fish is a “good” catch. These Divine Truths are why we should not see weekly attendance at and involvement in local “churches” as signs of authentic Christianity.
Christians’ lives belong to Jesus Christ. This Divine Truth is why they never should forget it is to Him they will have to give an account of: their actions, spoken words, and thoughts; how they used His spiritual gifts, natural talents, and time; and whether they used His gifts of Grace, Salvation, Holy Spirit, and godly Characteristics to glorify Father God and minister to people in need.
Since the beginning of time, there have been portals and attempts to create them. This truth is why Nimrod—and human beings since the Tower of Babel generation—have been trying to pry open portals. The most common belief is that ONLY benevolent, friendly spirits enter our dimension through opened portals. However, the Word of God makes it clear that not only can benevolent, friendly angelic spirits enter through opened gateways but also so can malevolent, unfriendly demonic spirits. Indeed, because Satan can appear through an open portal looking like an angel of light, God wants mankind to know they really don’t know what will come through any portal human beings have opened.
Twenty-first century’s human beings definitely are technologically competent to do whatever they imagine to do. This truth is ever-so evident wherever there are human enhancement experiments (genetic manipulations), and evident wherever present-day scientists are searching for interdimensional portals (seeking time travel)—the former of which is happening in laboratories all over the world; the latter is happening primarily in CERN near Geneva, Switzerland.
Natural darkness is more convenient for career sinners—thieves, robbers, drug pushers, murderers, prostitutes, adulterers, and so forth—who find it easier to commit their evil deeds in darkness. Sadly, there also are carnal Christians who find natural and spiritual darkness to be more convenient, because they prefer their old life of habitual sinning to their new life of faith walking. Therefore, because they love their sins and hate having them exposed by God’s Light, both career sinners and carnal Christians choose to walk in their own ways—the ways of darkness—instead of choosing to embrace the supernatural Light of Jesus Christ, believing totally in the Word of God’s divine Truths, and walking only in God’s Ways.
