In Matthew 13:47-52 Jesus compares the kingdom of heaven to a large net cast into the sea which is a kind of "harvest" of mankind for destruction. In addition he seems to suggest :
[Mat 13:47-52 CSB] 47 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a large net thrown into the sea. It collected every kind of fish, 48 "and when it was full, they dragged it ashore, sat down, and gathered the good fish into containers, but threw out the worthless ones. 49 "So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will go out, separate the evil people from the righteous, 50 "and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 51 "Have you understood all these things? " They answered him, "Yes." 52 "Therefore," he said to them, "every teacher of the law who has become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom treasures new and old."
In Habakkuk 1:13-17 the Chaldeans are depicted as merciless looters and pillagers using the figure of mankind as fish caught in their net and the ones they have no use for are mercilessly destroyed:
[Hab 1:13-17 CSB] 13 Your eyes are too pure to look on evil, and you cannot tolerate wrongdoing. So why do you tolerate those who are treacherous? Why are you silent while one who is wicked swallows up one who is more righteous than himself? 14 You have made mankind like the fish of the sea, like marine creatures that have no ruler. 15 The Chaldeans pull them all up with a hook, catch them in their dragnet, and gather them in their fishing net; that is why they are glad and rejoice. 16 That is why they sacrifice to their dragnet and burn incense to their fishing net, for by these things their portion is rich and their food plentiful. 17 Will they therefore empty their net and continually slaughter nations without mercy?
Is Jesus providing the disciples with an illustration of how he expects them to use the OT? By applying it to their generation? IE: That all of prophecy can and should be understood as referring to the Messianic age?
