“I will bless my people and their homes around my holy hill. And in the proper season I will send the showers they need. There will be showers of blessing” (Ezekiel 34.26 NLT).
Hills and mountains in the Bible—both New Testament and Old Testament—represent a place of worship and of drawing nearer to God. Ezekiel prophesies in the Old Testament that those who establish their lives on God’s “holy hill” will receive “showers of blessings.” There is a hill mentioned in the New Testament that is which like a geyser, unleashing the blessings of God within. The words Calvary and Golgotha come from the Greek word, Kranion, which means skull. When we picture the image of a skull on land, we see the presence of a hill. This Hill of Calvary is where Jesus Christ was crucified for the sins of all humankind, so we would be reconciled back into a relationship with God. It is on this hill that we are able to worship God and draw closer to God. As we come nearer to God in an intimate relationship with Him through the Finished Work of Jesus, we receive all the goodness that is found within the Hill of the Cross.

These “showers of blessings” are based solely on God and His goodness extended to us. So when we feel dry and in desperate need of God’s blessings, we must remember the holy hill of Jesus Christ and establish our lives on it. Only then can we have God’s goodness flowing over us.
“When they came to a place called The Skull, they nailed him to the cross. And the criminals were also crucified—one on his right and one on his left” (Luke 23.33 NLT).
