Deuteronomy 11: 13-14 “And it shall be that if you earnestly obey My commandments which I command you today, to love the Lord your God and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul, then I will give you the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine, and your oil.”


come away76“Many have in a great measure failed to receive the former rain. They have not obtained all the benefits that God has thus provided for them. They expect that the lack will be supplied by the latter rain.

When the richest abundance of grace shall be bestowed, they intend to open their hearts to receive it. They are making a terrible mistake. The work that God has begun in the human heart in giving His light and knowledge must be continually going forward.

Every individual must realize his own necessity. The heart must be emptied of every defilement, and cleansed for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit …”(E.G. White)

In Acts 3:18-20 it tells us “But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that his Messiah would suffer. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,  and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you—even Jesus.” 

My friends The TIMES OF REFRESHING. Those are the key words we as Christians must seek. starting first with the Early Rain, and there can be no either, or, when it comes to the Early, and Latter Rains.

The Early Rain God has promised to His faithful must  supersede  the Latter Rain. If our mission for the Master is to be completed in our lifetime. The Early Rain should be going on in our lives right now as we Allow the work of

holy spirit fire“God’s Holy Spirit each day to convict, instruct, guide and empower each believer in our churches just before the coming of our Savior Jesus Christ.” (M. Finley) And Friends there should not be any doubt, as we look at the world today,

that our Savior will soon be here. The question we all must ask ourselves is, will I personally be A leading vessel for Christ during this time. For Paul tells us in 2 Cor. 4:5-7 “For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”

“The latter rain, ripening earth’s harvest, represents the spiritual grace that prepares the church for the coming of imgresthe Son of man. But unless the former rain has fallen, there will be no life; the green blade will not spring up.

Unless the early showers have done their work, the latter rain can bring no seed to perfection. There is to be “first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.”

There must be a constant development of Christian virtue, a constant advancement in Christian experience. This we should seek with intensity of desire, that we may adorn the doctrine of Christ our Savior.” (E.G.White)

My friends we have to make A decision today for tomorrow is not promised to us. And that decision must be. Do I allow God’s transforming power through His Spirit to take full control of my Character,

While becoming passionate about spreading the good news about Christ soon return, and how His presence has made a difference in your life, to your families, love one’s, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and a world that has lost it’s spiritual compass.

But we must be on one accord in MIND and BODY with Christ and the body of believers in our churches. For it was only when the Disciples came together on one accord  through God’s Holy Spirit that allowed the day of Pentecost to happen.

Acts 1:4 tells us “On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.”

 Acts 1:12-15 tells us further “Then the apostles returned to Jerusalem from the hill called the Mountimages of Olives, a Sabbath day’s walk from the city. When they arrived, they went upstairs to the room where they were staying……They all joined together constantly in prayer….

then Acts 2:1-4 gives us the climax “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost,…

My friends as Children of the king. I hope, and pray, you are able to FOCUS through the Spirit of God the Journey we all must take if we are to endure what God is preparing for us. Salvation is free, but as Christians we show our love for the Master,

for The miracle of transformation that He has allowed to take place through His Word and Spirit in our lives. Today my God’s grace is still extended to each of us. But remember the ending of this story will soon take place, it was set on Calvary When Christ said IT IS FINISHED. and the final credits will read. JESUS WINS, SATAN LOSES!!!


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
