Rain is Given to Zion Alone

Divine Control over Rain
The occurrence of rain was dependent on the obedience of His people to the commands of the Lord. This has long been stipulated in the Law of Moses (Deut. 11:14). When God decided to make the heaven like iron, it was His intention to cause a drought on the land, which would blight any harvest, leaving the land infertile. God purposely prevented the fall of rain, in order to break the pride of His people (Lev. 26:19-20). When life is threatened and with so much at stake, the absence of rainfall would induce man to correct his bad behaviour. Man’s relationship with rain shows us that the duty of man is to obey God (Lev. 26:4).

This divine law is not given to change. Many years down the line, the punishment stipulated in this law was experienced in full force. It is seen when Elijah pronounced God’s judgment upon Ahab for the grievous sins he wilfully committed (1 Kgs. 16:30ff), thereby proclaiming a drought to fall on the nation for three years and six months (1 Kgs. 17:1, 7; Jas. 5:17f). It was seen again when Jeremiah revealed that the predicament of the people stemmed from their transgression, and from polluting themselves with every form of idolatry (Jer. 3: 2-3). It was in the end, their actions that turned away the rains that God had prepared for their harvest (Jer. 5:24-25).

On one occasion, the Lord spoke specifically to Jeremiah concerning a famine, in which the nation had found itself suffering (Jer. 14:1-6). There was a mournful cry that came out from Judah. Its inhabitants were running everywhere in search of water. They were utterly bewildered and perplexed as they could not find any water anywhere. The reason for the absence of water was because there had been no rainfall on the land (4). The drought was one of the three types of punishment (12) that God intended to use against His people for their falsehood and, in particular, their belief in the false prophets (13f).
