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. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. —James 5:7,8

James is talking here about the Second Coming. Of course, Jesus is the Husbandman. He hasn’t come yet—that’s quite obvious—so He’s waiting for some reason or other, isn’t He? What hinders Him from coming?

The Scriptures tell us why He is waiting and what He is waiting for. He’s waiting for “the precious fruit of the earth . . .
until he receive the early and latter rain.”

(“The precious fruit of the earth” means a harvest.)

Jesus has not yet received the harvest that is to come; He has not yet received the fullness of the early and the latter rain. But I believe Jesus is coming again. Jesus said He is coming again. The angels said He is coming again. The Word of God teaches HE is coming again. We have a service every Wednesday night at RHEMA Bible Training Center, and every time I’ve been there to conduct it, I’ve used this Scripture from James. I couldn’t get away from it. In fact, some nights as I was ready to dismiss, the Holy Spirit would say, “Well, you didn’t read James 5:7 and pray, so do it.” I did it. I learned a long time ago that it pays to obey God.

Many have asked, “Is there a new wave coming? Are we in that wave now? Is there more to come?” Personally, I believe we entered into the new wave in 1982. Certainly there’s more to come. Our text talks about “the early and latter rain.” Another reference is Zechariah 10:1: “Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain; so the Lord shall make bright clouds, and give them [or send them] showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.”

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.
