Numbers 21:8-9 reads , "And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived."

     In this scripture we see that God told Moses to make a serpent of brass and lift it up onto a pole and then commanded those who had been bitten by serpents to only look and they would live….. is Bible history ready to repeat itself all over again? The Israelites back in the Old Testament days had grossly sinned against their God; they had lost their way, they were going into total darkness and away from God, just like we have done here in America during the past 70 years.  The Old Testament Israelites allowed their hands to slip out of God’s kind gentle hand. They quickly fell into dis­obedience and sin and because of their gross sinning, our Lord sent fiery serpents among them.
Multitudes of Israelites were bitten. No one in the camp knew how to nurse the dying back to health. Cries of death and moans came from all directions.
 Are we ready for a plague to happen right here in America? Are we ready for our economy to fall right out from underneath us? Is our loving God going to be forced to use the rod of correction upon us to get us to humble ourselves? Our God has promised in the Book of Joel the prophet that He would pour out upon us the latter rain of the Holy Spirit and our God promised the latter rain of the Holy Spirit would be greater than the former rain of The Holy Spirit! Joel 2:25-32.

Joel 2:25-32 reads, " I will give you back what you lost in the years when swarms of locusts ate your crops. It was I who sent this army against you.   Now you will have plenty to eat, and be satisfied. You will praise the LORD your God, who has done wonderful things for you. My people will never be despised again.   Then, Israel, you will know that I am among you and that I, the LORD, am your God and there is no other. My people will never be despised again.  "Afterward I will pour out my Spirit on everyone: your sons and daughters will proclaim my message; your old people will have dreams, and your young people will see visions.   At that time I will pour out my Spirit even on servants, both men and women.  "I will give warnings of that day in the sky and on the earth; there will be bloodshed, fire, and clouds of smoke.  The sun will be darkened, and the moon will turn red as blood before the great and terrible day of the LORD comes.  But all who ask the LORD for help will be saved. As the LORD has said, 'Some in Jerusalem will escape; those whom I choose will survive.' "
