Rain in The Time of The Latter Rain!
“Ask the Lord for rain in the time of the latter rain. The Lord will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, grass in the field for everyone” (Zechariah 10:1).
Generally, we carry many requests to God. We take them to the servants of God also. We say, “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16). But God Himself gives us a prayer request to us. Since Jesus prays for us sitting down at the right hand of God, shall we pray to Him saying, “God, command so that the country gets latter rain.”
It is our duty to pray and after that expect it with faith. Then God will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, grass in the field for everyone. We read about five things in this Scripture portion. 1. The Rain we plead. 2. Lightning. 3. Fields. 4. Flourishing crops. 5. Latter rain. The ‘Latter Rain’ is the ‘Rain of Anointment.’ The power of the Holy Spirit which is poured in the final days is the strength of the High.
A person met a servant of God and asked, “Sir, when will the Revival of the nation happen? The servant of God drew a small circle on the floor and four more circles nearer to it. Then he said, “Brother, now you may stand in the small circle on the floor. Firstly let the anointment of latter rain descend on you. Let the Revival begin from you. Then, let the latter rain pour on your family, church and the nation. Only this could make the Revival happen in the world.”
The heaven is like a big Super Market. In it are all the worldly and Spiritual blessings and all the blessings of the Most High. Seek God on which direction you want Him to open the windows of the heaven. When King Solomon sought wisdom from God, the wisdom descended on him like a rain. When the Israelites crossed the wilderness, the manna descended every morning like rain. When they asked for meat, the quail came down in big number and covered the camp. When Elijah asked for the rain of fire it descended from above.
Dear children of God, what is your requirement? Is it the financial blessing? Peace? Joy? Is it the well being of your children? God will command all these things as the latter rain from His perfection and abundance.
The ‘Latter Rain’ indicates the anointment of the Holy Spirit which God is going to pour in the end. This rain will bring both worldly and Spiritual blessings. So, seek from God with faith.
To meditate: “I will make them and the places all around my hill a blessing; and I will cause showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing” (Ezekiel 34:26).
