M83_cover_web_12Jul17-1.jpgEvery year in Israel, the heavy winter rains contribute to the healthy growth of crops. As the land transitions into spring, the crops depend on the spring, or latter, rain to ensure they ripen to full maturity and provide a good harvest. Biblically, the pattern of rainfall in Israel is closely associated with the people’s faithfulness towards God, as reflected in the following passage:

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.… Take heed to yourselves, lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other gods and worship them, lest the LORD’s anger be aroused against you, and He shut up the heavens so that there be no rain.” (Deut 11:13–17a)

In the spiritual context, the advent of spring signals the need for the church to grow into maturity, to be prepared for the harvest, the second coming of the Lord.
