It’s raining again. I wrote before about an outpouring of the Spirit, a healing rain. I do believe what He says about pouring out His Spirit upon all flesh. Acts 2:17. It has been hot here this summer, sizzling. You can see the steam rise. Just about every afternoon, a thunderstorm will fire up, if not in my neighborhood, close by.
I was watching lightning, a couple of nights ago. It was amazing to be indoors and the room just light up, so late in the night. I used to tell children that God was taking pictures, or angels, so they would not be afraid. We talked about storms and even how to take cover. I did have to put children under a table once a long time ago.
But there was no fear with me, because I know there is healing and peace in His rain. And guess what? I believe there are angels in the rain. And I even found this picture to illustrate it. But they won’t be sitting around getting soaked or drenched but will accompany the Holy Spirit. And we want Him to be poured out, as He is always a type of water or rain, now that is a good soak, pure and refreshing.
What will angels be doing in the latter rain? Well, we know what they are doing in Revelation, but before they come to separate wheat from tares as Matthew 13 says, they will still be ministering for and to believers. They can bring strength, deliverance and of course, revelation from the Spirit because after all they are messengers.
As alway, I urge people to be cautious about who teaches you. Some people are not going to be truthful. That is why we need the Holy Spirit to teach us and guide us., He will never lie, deceive or allow you to be if you learn how to use the gift of discernment.
The spiritual gifts are listed in 1 Corinthians 12, and just before the love Chapter 13, which is all about Jesus, so relax and rest in His rain, He will pour it on and there a beautiful scent after a summer rain. And I know it is a peaceful, prayerful rain, a healing and restful rain, and the fragrance of Christ is sprinkled over the atmosphere, like His blood upon the mercy seat.
As the world sizzles, believers can find joy in His rain, and know He is coming soon. And it’s raining again, and there are angels in the rain. He will come to us like the rain. Hosea 6:3
And as a side note, we are into the Jewish time of Teshuvah, the 40 days of repentance, fasting if you are led to, it is just at turning to God or returning to God, seeking righteousness, it leads up to the Jewish New Year 5780, September 30.
