Gone Fishing

Matthew 4:19 -“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” - When Christ picked out his disciples he chose a few who were fisherman, and made a simple analogy about them. He told them that they would be sent out to fish for people. That was a good analogy because that is basically what the people who spread the gospel do. When someone is "caught" by Christ it simply means that they accept him as their only lord and savior and will obey his commands. Christ sent many people out from different occupations to fish and while they were all important they needed power from him to succeed (John 15:5 - ...apart from me you can do nothing.) Whatever station we have in life we can serve Christ even if it's something different than fishing. https://whataboutjesus.com

It may be in reference of the transition from Toris the Bull to Pisces the Fish. It may not be a coincidence that the end of the age of toris, the beginning of the age of Pisces, and Jesus birthday are all at the same time. When JC talks about the end of the age he may be referring to the end of the age of pisces (which is coming up.
