What is the Rain in the Bible?

In many places the bible teaches that God would give rains to His people.

Hosea 6:3 Let us acknowledge the Lord; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.”

James 5:7 Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains.

Then what are the rains that God gives to his people? In the Book of Joel, God teaches what the rain means?

Joel 2:23 Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before. 24 The threshing floors will be filled with grain; the vats will overflow with new wine and oil.

Immediately after this God reveals the meaning of the rain by saying:

Joel 2:28 “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.

God says that He will pour down “His Spirit” or the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God, to his people. Therefore, we can see the rain God gives to His people actually is the Holy Spirit that God gives to His people.

We can confirm this through the teachings of Jesus too. Jesus said that he would give the living water to his people. The living water (or rain) actually is the Holy Spirit that Jesus was to give to the disciples 2000 years ago. (John 7:39, Acts 2:1)

Then why does God give the Holy Spirit and to whom? According to the bible, God’s people in Zion can receive the rains of the Holy Spirit as we can see in the verse above. In the Book of Joel God says that He would give rains to “people of Zion” who keeps the festivals of God. (Isaiah 33:20)

Just as the disciples who kept the Day of Pentecost (a festival of God) received the Holy Spirit of the early rain, God teaches that God’s people who keeps the Feast of Tabernacles (another festival of God) can receive the Holy Spirit of the latter rain in the last days.

Zechariah 14:16 Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles. 17 If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, they will have no rain.

In the last days, only those who keeps the Feast of Tabernacles can receive the Holy Spirit of the latter rain. Jesus also taught that those who keep the Feast of Tabernacles can receive the living water of the Holy Spirit 2000 years ago.

John 7:37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” 39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive.

Today, there are so many people who claim to believe in God and to have receive the Spirit of God in them without keeping the festivals of God. Rather than keeping the festivals of God such as the Pentecost, the Feast of Tabernacles, or the Feast of the Unleavened Bread, they are keeping the festivals coming from the traditions of man such as the Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc..

Then how can they say they received the Holy Spirit without keeping the festivals of God? They have to test the spirit in them if it is the Holy Spirit or the evil spirits. God’s promise to His people is clear: “Keep the festivals of God in Zion and then you will receive the Holy Spirit”. There is nothing ambiguous in it. And he also clearly teaches about the result of not keeping the festivals of God.

Zechariah 14:18 If the Egyptian people do not go up and take part, they will have no rain. The Lord will bring on them the plague he inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles. 19 This will be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles.

God clearly teaches that those who do not keep the festivals of God, especially the Feast of Tabernacles cannot receive the rain of the Holy Spirit. On the contrary, they will receive plagues and punishment from God in the last day. Now let us keeps the festivals of God in Zion, the World Mission Society Church of God. Then you will receive the Holy Spirit of the latter rain abundantly and reap an abundant harvest.

    God's prophecies are so absolute and they'll be fulfilled without fail in their own time. When we receive the rains from God the Savior, then, we'll be clothed with the Holy Spirit to do God's gospel work. By the Bible, without keeping God's feasts, it's impossible this rain. God foretold that God's feasts were to be kept only in Zion. Unfortunately, nowadays, many believers have no idea of God's feasts, but are keeping the rules taught by men.Only the members of the WMSCOG are keeping God's feasts according to the Bible.

    As the Bible says that only those who keep God's feasts can get the latter rain of Holy Spirit which Father and Mother will pour down on us, let's keep the truth of the new covenant.

    Amen! We can receive abundant blessing of the Holy Spirit only by keeping God's feasts such as the Pentecost and the Feast of Tabernacles. There are numerous churches all around the world but they don't keep God's feasts given through the Bible. Only WMSCOG keeps God's feasts according to the Bible. I hope all people know this truth and keep God's feasts at WMSCOG to receive the Holy Spirit.

    God grants us the Holy Spirit as the raining. only those who get the Holy Spirit thru the feasts of God can escape from disasters and can be protected by God's promise.

    Even though we can do nothing, we can do everything in God. God gives us holy latter rain for us. I’m very thankful to Christ Ahnsahnghong and heavenly Mother.

    Gods feasts are so important and we can't receive the rain of the Holy Spirit without the Feast of Tabernacles. Let us keeps the festivals of God in Zion, WMSCOG and receive the Holy Spirit of the latter rain abundantly and reap an abundant harvest.

    In this age we live in, we can receive the water of life only if we go to Zion, which keeps the feasts.
