Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in Yehovah your
Elohim: for He hath given you the former rain moderately, and He
will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and
the latter rain in the first month. Joel 2:23.
There is to be in the churches a wonderful manifestation of
the power of Elohim, but it will not move upon those who have not
humbled themselves before Yehovah, and opened the door of
their heart by confession and repentance. In the manifestation
of that power which lightens the earth with the glory of Elohim,
they will see only something which in their blindness they think
dangerous, something which will arouse their fears, and they
will brace themselves to resist it. Because Yehovah does not work
according to their expectations and ideal, they will oppose the
work. "Why," they say, "should we not know the Spirit of God,
when we have been in the work so many years?" Because they
did not respond to the warnings, the entreaties, of the messages
of Elohim, but persistently said, "I am rich, and increased with
goods, and have need of nothing."
