Many have demanded of God, “Rain upon us!”
Let it be known: If you want rain, break up your fallow ground and sow not among thorns.
For the earth drinking in the rain often coming upon it, and producing plants fit for those for whom it is also worked, receives blessing from God; but bearing thorns and thistles, it is deemed unfit and near a curse, of which the end is for burning.
Hebrews 6:7-8 (LITV)
The Lord will not entrust His anointing unto a people who have done nothing but profane it by the idolatry of their hard and impenitent hearts.
Revival is the result of a heart’s darkness being exposed in the piercing light of God. If most men knew what true revival might entail for them, they would never ask for it.
