James 5:7 (MKJV) Therefore be patient, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth and has long patience for it, until he receives theearly and the latter rain.
Oh my friends, the Latter-Rain will be better than the early or the first rain and we are living in that time! Just as the Holy Spirit was poured out on the early church. Along with the manifestions of signs, wonders, miracles, healings, provision and protection was poured out by the Holy Spirit, so will it be in the Latter-Rain. Except to a greater degree!
In Israel the early rains (just after planting) usually occur in October-November, while the latter rains (just before harvest) usually occur in the April-May timeframe.
The early rains help to make the crops grow strong. While the latter rains help to make the harvest fruitful and plenteous. Likewise, the out-pouring of the Holy Spirit in the early church helped to solidify it and make it grow strong, even in the face of uncertianty. While in our day and age the out-pouring of the Holy Spirit will most assuredly ensure a plenteous harvest.
Oh hallelujah! My friends, get ready for an out pouring of the Spirit of God in this last day and age, before the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ!
