Fishers of Men, Sea of Galilee Prophecy

Updated: Feb 16, 2023


Bob Jones released a prophecy in Cincinnati, Ohio on July 15, 2005 concerning a vision he had during the meeting that day in. Bob saw a sci-fi type giant man similar to Gulliver’s travels. Bob referred to this giant as Revival Man. This giant covered a good portion of the eastern part of the United States. The giant (Revival Man) was tied down by little men of little influence, which represented the spirit of religion and the traditions of men restraining the Body of Christ. During his vision, Bob saw that this giant’s head was in Cleveland, OH, his heart was in Columbus, OH, his left hand was in Philadelphia, his right handed Indianapolis, his reproductive organs in Cincinnati, his right foot in Nashville, and his left foot in Charlotte, NC. Bob prophesied that the Body of Christ was regaining its strength and the right hand of Revival Man would begin to break free in Indianapolis. As he regained more of his strength all the ropes/restraints began to break. Eventually the giant (Body of Christ) was free and stood up. In his vision, Bob saw that the giant first stood up in Atlanta. Bob then prophesied that his head would be in the heavens receiving revelation but his feet would be upon the earth walking it out and manifesting the kingdom. Bob prophesied over all 8 cities concerning the redemptive gift that each of these cities carry for Kingdom purposes. Basically Bob’s prophecy was that the Body of Christ has been tied down by the spirit of religion/ traditions of men and the systems of men have been using the Body of Christ for a lesser purpose than God’s eternal purpose. When the giant (Body of Christ) stands up, it will be the fulfillment of Ephesians 4:13.


Eph. 4:11 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers,

12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ;

13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.


The mature man (Body of Christ) eyes will be open to see things from above and be able to walk it out on the earth. Since we heard the prophecy it has been in our hearts to retrace this Bob Jones prophecy and call forth the redemptive gift that each of these 8 cities carry. We actually reached out to Bob Jones‘s wife Bonnie to talk to her about it and she gave us her blessings to bring prophetic activation to this prophecy. (Bob Jones passed 2/14/2014)


So on July 29th we (Ed Watts, Jamie Fitt & Philadelphia team) began the Revival Man journey. We cast the vision and connected with the key leaders in each of those 8 cities and then held prophetic worship intercessory gatherings in the eight cities mentioned in the Revival Man prophecy. It was an incredible journey with God stories resulting from each gathering.


On August 15, 2022, we arrived at the last city, the eighth city, Atlanta. During worship I (Ed Watts) was standing at the altar with my hands stretched out, palms up and I felt as if someone put something heavy in my hands. I immediately went into an open vision and saw a large key in my hand. This moment was the most incredible encounter that I’ve ever had in my time of being born again. I felt like I was literally standing at the sea of Galilee in Tiberias, I could feel the breeze, smell the water, etc.


I heard the Lord say, “SEE I’ve given you the key to the Sea of Galilee. He said, yes this is the 22:22 Key of David that will open a door around the SEA of GALILEE. For I AM coming once again to the Sea of Galilee, to an obscure people in an obscure place. Just as I went to the Galilee to choose disciples and birth an apostolic movement, so once again I am going to the Galilee to birth a mature apostolic movement in the land of Israel. But know this, My Eyes are ranging to and fro throughout the earth looking for the heart of shalem, the wholehearted ones in agreement with My Heart. I am also going to the obscure people in the obscure places throughout the earth and raising up disciples after My Heart and birthing a true apostolic movement.


Behold, I have torn the NETS of the past season. I tore the nets of My fishers of men because they became greedy for the fish and what the fish provide. The apostolic nets do not work because they are in competition (envy - jealousy) with each other instead of covenant. But I say, Behold, once again I AM raising up FISHERS - fishers of men - apostolic fisherman. I’m establishing the nets that will work, a covenant net is the only net that will work. The net that will work are men and women walking in covenantal love with Me and walking in covenantal love with each other. So I say, strengthen the net for harvest! Strengthen the connecting points of the net, your covenant relationships. If you don’t, the net will not work. If you obey, remember I’m the One who calls the fish to the net.”


I knew my vision wasn’t necessarily about me but represented the Body of Christ. It represented the Body that would grow up into maturity and be entrusted with the key to the Sea of Galilee (the ability to unlock and call forth a mature apostolic movement for harvest). The apostolic lifestyle will bring apostolic results. we’ve been in a season of replicated immaturity not understanding what apostolic truly means. But I believe in Israel the Lord will begin to restore Mature Apostles and Prophets And from Israel to the ends of the earth the movement must go forth ! The Lord is restoring a remnant of the indigenous people (1st Nations) beginning with the 1st of all 1st nations, Israel.


We’re truly coming to the Tikkun Olam moment for Israel and the Nations. I’m excited to be alive in this fullness of time moment of atonement.
