This was in my daily Bible reading this morning:
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, 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. And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full. Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them; And then the LORD’S wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you. (Deu 11:13-17)
Notice that if we are deceived into worshipping other gods, God will shut up heaven and not give us rain.
Satan / Lucifer / the devil is a liar and one of his main tactics is deception. Think about it – if he just said, “Hey, all you people, just come follow me and let’s all go into the lake of fire together!” he probably wouldn’t have many takers. But he doesn’t do that, he deceives people into following him instead of God.
Pro 26:2 As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.
The Bible says that the curse does not come without cause, and no rain is definitely part of the curse. So, if we are experiencing lack of rain, which is part of the curse, then we need to find the cause.
Have we been deceived into worshipping other gods, and is God not giving us rain because of that?
