Long ago Jesus came to this earth, the “house of His friends,” and was mortally wounded. But this would not be the last time His presumed friends would wound Him.
There was a time, much closer to ours, when Jesus came near again, bringing with Him a priceless gift to present to His church, the full measure of the Holy Spirit in the latter rain power.
Though few accepted it with joy, many others chose to wound the Giver by rejecting His gift. The latter rain that might have been was delayed, and waits even yet to resume.
Can we have another chance to welcome the Giver fully and receive His gift?
