This anointed minibook explains the move of the Holy Spirit in our day to restore the power, authority, and character of Christ in the Church and in the lives of believers. The Word of God teaches HE is coming again. Among other things, rain typifies a refreshing or blessing. James wrote this letter to Hebrew Christians, who knew about Israel’s rains. The early (or “former”) rain occurred in November, after the autumn harvest, to prepare the land for future planting. The latter rain, of course, came in the spring, prior to the harvest, to mature the crop. Christ is the Head of the Church. We are the Body.
You know your head cannot exercise any authority except through your body, so Jesus is not going to personally exercise any authority on the earth except through His Church. Jesus carries out His work through the Church, but members of the Church have been so weak they haven’t recognized the authority and power of the Head—the authority that belongs to them.
