Deu 11:13-15 If you Hearken Diligently…I Will Give you the Rain

Deu 11:13  And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,
Deu 11:14  That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.
Deu 11:15  And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full.

We should all know we cannot love the LORD our God and serve Him with all our heart and soul in the flesh independent from the Spirit of God moving us to do so. When we do love Him with all our heart and soul, that means we see Him as everything. To love the LORD God with all our heart and soul is to see Him as the beginning and ending of all things, both things in heaven and on earth and things seen and unseen.

Rev 22:13  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

Col 1:16  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Col 1:17  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

In other words there is nothing made that was not made by Christ. He is the Creator of all things in each of our lives – good, evil, powers, principalities, thrones, dominions, things visible and things invisible – and by Him all things consist. To see anything in any life, in any other light, is darkness. To see things as being by the will of man, good or evil, is darkness and not light. This knowledge comes only to the people of God, and for them He creates this knowledge inside them. It is as when He created the heavens and the earth, so, too, with us, we are being created into new heavens and new earth;

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Rev 21:1  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

When the elect are recreated from the old man:

Jer 18:1  The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
Jer 18:2  Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.
Jer 18:3  Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.
Jer 18:4  And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.

Rom 9:21  Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? 
endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
Rom 9:23  And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,
Rom 9:24  Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?

They are anointed with the Spirit of God and given eyes to see:

1Jn 2:27  But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

Joh 14:16  And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Joh 14:17  Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
Joh 14:18  I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Joh 14:26  But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Rev 3:18  I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

If you do not have eyes to see, then you are walking around blind and stumbling through life by the doctrine that you are the creator of your own destiny.

Deu 29:4  Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.

Eze 12:2  Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.

If you do not see things in the spirit, then you are lost and feeding your fleshly god.

1Co 2:14  But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Mat 15:14  Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

This new love we have been given is to worship God as the all in all. Before we are recreated we only saw God as what we perceived as God, and that was from blind eyes. All we could do was imagine what our natural heavens thought of as God. We were still just eating herbs of the field;

Gen 1:29  And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

Eating herb-bearing seed is feeding off yourself, which God created us to do by the carnal mind. Remember that herb bearing seed, also grass, is given by God for our beast to eat and then the new man feeds off the beast and learns from what the beast has eaten and become.

Deu 11:15  And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full. (We get full from feeding off our cattle, our beast. When the man of sin is revealed, THEN shall that wicked beast be consumed by the SPIRIT of the mouth of God.)

2Th 2:3  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2Th 2:4  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

2Th 2:8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 

1Pe 1:24  For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:

We could produce no fruit to Him, and we only brought forth briars and thorns. Later, as we are given sight, we see these briars and thorns as the thorns that pierced the head of Christ. We see that what we thought of as worshiping God was really sin, the sin of self-righteousness, iniquity. That iniquity is the grass of our field which made our beast grow and allows our new man to feed off the cattle, our beast.

Eze 33:13  When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.

Isa 53:6  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Joh 19:1  Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.
Joh 19:2  And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,
Joh 19:3  And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.
Joh 19:4  Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.
Joh 19:5  Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!

This sin of self-righteousness is how we thought we would be justified before God by our own acts in the flesh to bring about salvation for ourselves. However, we are commanded now to love the LORD our God with all our heart and soul, which means we give glory to God in all things. We don’t just thank Him for the things that affect our flesh in a good way, but we thank Him for the evil in our lives He is working for the good. If we are receiving this knowledge then we are receiving the early and latter rain.

Jas 5:7  Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it,until he receive the early and latter rain.
Jas 5:8  Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

The early rain is when we first come to the knowledge of truth, and we are happy and full of hope. But then comes summer, and the earth dries up. This is our time of trouble. At the end of summer comes the latter rain, where we are restored and filled up to produce more fruit, wine. Corn is produced from the early rain, and corn in this verse represents “increase”.

From H1711; properly increase, that is, grain: – corn ([floor]), wheat.
Total KJV occurrences: 40

How does this corn become an increase? How does it grow and produce food for us? When it dies. We receive increase into the knowledge of God from the death of our seed, the old man, and then the new man is created.  It is the same as the death of our beast of the field/world from which we feed.   Instead of feeding off the grass of our own self-righteousness as the beast, we feed off the beast that has been made fat off the grass of our own self-righteousness.  This is what happens in the beginning:

Joh 12:23  And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
Joh 12:24  Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
Joh 12:25  He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
Joh 12:26  If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

We can see from this parable of our old man that we must die to produce fruit to God. This dying process which we see as evil, is actually how we love God, and in fact is the love of God. It is true love to God and by God when we die to self. We cannot love God unless we deny ourselves, and in that denial of self we are producing fruit. Christ said He could call twelve legions of angels to rescue Himself, but then He would not be denying Himself and thereby saving us. We must deny self of any glory and honour if we are to love God in sincerity and truth.

Mat 26:51  And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest’s, and smote off his ear.
Mat 26:52  Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
Mat 26:53  Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
Mat 26:54  But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

When we draw our own sword we are not denying self, and we are using the scripture to save ourselves. We think we are loving God, but in fact we are loving self, we are trying to preserve self by our own use of the WORD. We see no glory in the death of our seed, and we cannot imagine how we can grow from death. It seems like an oxymoron to the flesh, but in fact this is loving God and keeping His commandments. From this death, where we are dried up bones, comes the latter rain where wine is harvested from the grapes. This is the time of the wrath of God upon all that I ever saw as coming from me. All of my earth, Gog and Magog, that surrounds my new man, is wiped out by the wrath of God’s word. This is the wine of the wrath of God.

Rev 20:8  And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
Rev 20:9  And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

Rev 18:1  And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
Rev 18:2  And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
Rev 18:3  For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
Rev 18:4  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Rev 18:5  For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
Rev 18:6  Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. 
Rev 18:7  How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
Rev 18:8  Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

From the early rain we receive corn, and from the death of that corn comes the latter rain where we receive the wine of the wrath of God on our old man. This wine of the wrath of God is where we are judged inwardly, and all that we ever thought was ours, produced from our self-righteous Babylonian whore, is wiped away. In the natural man we see this as evil and unimaginable, but in the spirit the new man sees this as the love of God and the true worship our Creator. From the death of our old man and the judgment of God on our self-righteous man of sin, comes the light, the oil we have been looking for, the anointing from God, where we see as He sees.

From H6671; oil (as producing light); figuratively anointing: – + anointed, oil.
Total KJV occurrences: 23

As long as we are given to see these things as all from our Creator, we will have the anointing oil that will be used for the light of truth.

Exo 27:20  And thou shalt command the children of Israel, that they bring thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamp to burn always. 

Mat 25:1  Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
Mat 25:2  And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
Mat 25:3  They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
Mat 25:4  But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
Mat 25:5  While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
Mat 25:6  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Mat 25:7  Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
Mat 25:8  And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
Mat 25:9  But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

I cannot die for you, nor can you die for me. We must all die individually for the whole. I cannot give you my oil. It must be produced from your own crushing death. You can see my light from death, but it still is not your oil that makes the fuel for the fire. You must be crushed like the olive, die like a seed to produce your own oil for light. I can show you the light by my death, but you must experience that death for yourself and thereby receive the light needed for the journey in the night. We must put that light on the table for all to see, yet that light must be yours and together our lights will lighten the world.

Luk 11:33  No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. 
Luk 11:34  The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
Luk 11:35  Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.
Luk 11:36  If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light [The whole shall be full of individual lights, that shine as ONE light and that LIGHT  is CHRIST].

Joh 1:4  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.[Christ is my light]
Joh 1:5  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Joh 1:6  There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
Joh 1:7  The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
Joh 1:8  He [and neither you nor me in the flesh] was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
Joh 1:9  That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

A single eye means we only see God as Creator and only give glory to God for all things. We do not see ourselves as producing anything, and we see God as all in all. We bear witness of the light of Christ, and that light is this – you must die to live. Unless you FALL into the ground and die, you will not live. This is the true light which lights us. If we are not dying to self, we are not living. This what we are to take from our scriptures today. To love God and to serve Him with all your heart and soul is to see Him as all that we were, are and all we will ever be. Anything less than that is having two eyes, and having two eyes is evil, for it means you are sharing glory with God, and that is evil. May God grant us the privilege to love Him, serve Him with all our hearts and soul and thereby have a single eye. With this single eye we can clear the land in which we are conquering of all those who are seeing with two eyes.
