The Daily Word of Righteousness

Be Careful How You Drink the Water!

Ask the LORD for rain in the springtime; it is the LORD who makes the storm clouds. He gives showers of rain to men, and plants of the field to everyone. (Zechariah 10:1—NIV)

So Gideon took the men down to the water. There the LORD told him, "Separate those who lap the water with their tongues like a dog from those who kneel down to drink." Three hundred men lapped with their hands to their mouths. All the rest got down on their knees to drink. (Judges 7:5,6—NIV)

There is a smell of rain in the air. The spiritual atmosphere is charged. The prophets are speaking of revival, of unprecedented Divine Glory to come and bring the saints to maturity, to give us fresh insight into the Scriptures, and to empower worldwide evangelism on a scale never before seen—not even during the events of the Book of Acts.

Truly the Lord Jesus has kept the good wine until now.

We are in the time of the spring (harvest; latter) rain. Joel, Hosea, and James speak of the spring rain. Zechariah commands us to pray for rain in the time of the spring rain so we will have an abundance of fruitfulness.

We want revival. We are praying for revival. But we want to be sure that what we receive is the real thing.

We will receive the approval of the Lord if we put the apostles to the test.

Elijah on Mount Carmel was too experienced to move just because everything shook and flew around. There was a tremendous commotion but Elijah remained unmoved because he knew the Lord was not in these. He waited for the quiet voice he had learned to trust and obey.

In 1965 Stanley Howard Frodsham, author of With Signs Following, gave a remarkable prophecy at the Elim Bible Institute. Audrey and I knew Brother Frodsham, editor of The Pentecostal Evangel for so many years, and can vouch for the godliness of this remarkable saint.

Brother Frodsham saw mighty revival power coming to prepare the believers for the darkness ahead. He then warned us not to get our eyes on people.

To be continued.
