early and latter rains...

    If Pentecost is the early rain, then I would say that Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur is the latter rain time. Now knowing the judgement of the Lord has an appointed time, called the Day of Atonement, it is important to learn more about this appointed time and what to expect. I am going to take this to a personal level, because let's face it if it isn't up close and personal then the Lord has not reached the heart of the matter.

    I want you to understand that when the Lord comes to His temple, your mind, it will be fast, suddenly. For those that are prepared for it, this will be a time of great rejoicing, for those who are unprepared, it will be the judgement that they so feared. It is our temple that the Lord wants to cleanse once and for all of all unrighteousness.

    Think about it, if God suddenly came to your mind, and all the secret things are revealed in their true light, how would you feel, what you do and how would you respond to such an event. It is Mal 3 when the messenger of the covenant comes.

    Because of hardness of heart, there will be people will not listen to the message that would have prepared them as to what is about to come upon the world, leaving them unprepared for the reality of the event. This is way it is so important to keep your eyes upon the Lord and His Word which He speaks through. He will declare everything before it comes to pass.

    Taking down that curtain in your mind, most people use to mentally separate themselves from God, before He comes to your temple like He did to the Temple in the wilderness. God suddenly shows up in all His majestic Holiness, and my question to you is, are you prepared for Him to come in all His Holiness? Today it is your sins that separate you from God like a curtain. They are what keep you from seeing God. God will tear down that curtain suddenly in the day that He said He would.

    Mourning for the only son, Yeshua, God’s people will be rejoicing when He comes to their temple, in the real way which is more awesome than there are words to describe the experience. It will be a totally different event for them. The Lord knows that only He is the one for His bride. He will come suddenly to her, which is our minds, the Temple of God, at the appointed time. It is important for believers to be ready at the appointed time for this experience with God. It is so necessary for us to prepare to live with God forever. We know who is the chosen man, who is appointed over her. God asks “who is like me?” and “who will appoint me the time?” and “who is that shepherd that will stand before me?” God said that He will come suddenly to His Temple.

    Do you remember the story that Yeshua told about the house that was cleansed of demons and later after the demons came back to find the house cleaned, and they gather legions to fill this house, which Yeshua declared was worse than the first.

    So it is at the time of the final cleansing, when the Satan doing a great imitation of Jesus Christ [notice I didn't say Yeshua] enters the earthly sanctuary and stops the daily sacrifice. The understanding of how salvation works has been replaced by this imitation with a story so believable it is called a strong delusion.

    There will be nothing stopping the demons from entering the minds of men, and then the most terrifying period of earth's history will begin. We know this because there will be, for that period of time, no daily sacrifice in the heavenly sanctuary and therefore no mediator between God and sinful man! God declares “You have forsaken me, and served other gods: wherefore I will deliver you no more.” The daily sacrifice which embodies all the merits of the Savior's blood securing pardon, cleansing and protection to those who trust and obey is gone. When this daily sacrifice is blocked by the workings of the devil in overwhelming delusions and deception, then you have an unrestrained satanic reign of terror throughout the earth. On earth a time of trouble encloses mankind in the insanity that dwells in the minds of Satan and his demons. Troubles of the kind never been seen before, nor will ever be seen again. Scripture tells us that during this time the Man of Sin, the Little Horn, the Antichrist, Satan Himself will sit on the earthly temple throne of God and proclaim himself God Almighty!

    Not all minds have believed the lies, got caught up in the delusion, but stayed focused on Him who is able to save them to the uttermost. God has provide a place for His believers, and they shall dwell in His Temple, His pavillion, His tabernacle, during the time of trouble that is unlike any other time in human history. God will deliver everyone that is written in the book at that time.

    The Lord will be coming into His house, your mind, like a rushing wind. Let us prepare ourselves for the experience. Let us enter into His temple and see what He has prepared for us that we may know what kind of Temple we are to be for Him to dwell in. Let us be prepared for that day when He comes, we are awake and not asleep. Just like Pentecost was for the disciples, so it will be for those who are to receive the latter rain at its appointed time. The early rain was Pentecost and the latter rain will come to prepare a people which will bring everything to a head, where the mystery of God is finished, and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit at the appointed time will be in its fullness never to leave. As James said “Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and has long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.” Please note in this verse the tie in with the coming of the Lord and the early and latter rain.... This is where I get the connection between Pentecost and early rain... which leads me to think about the latter rain and its connection to the fall feasts.
