Hey everybody I got a word from the Lord today. I went to

church last night and we had the Holy Ghost fire up in there, and

when worship was over, my youth pastor stood up and said, "Listen...

not with your physical ears but listen in the Spirit." Well I heard

something that I’m not going to say right now, so that my story

isn’t ruined. And the Lord placed a thought in my head. This is

going somewhere I promise. Well I have a friend in my youth group

who is like my brother (actually I have a few who are) and so I

asked him what he heard when she told us to listen. He said, "I

heard rain." I started freaking out and got set on fire right

there. I asked him if he was serious and he said he was. I had

also heard rain when she told us to listen. The thought that come

to my head was 1 Kings 18:41 "... there is a sound of an abundance

of rain." The Lord had wired me and him in to His word and voice.

Well I was sitting in my 7th period class today and I got a word

from the Lord on Spiritual Rain. And I felt I had to share it.

The book of Genesis chapter 6 tells us about Noah and the

flood and how the Lord was going to destroy the sinful people in the

world with excessive rain. The Lord spoke to Noah about the flood

and He told him to tell the people of the upcoming rain storm. Noah

preached the flood for 400 years, but people didn’t heed the word of

God spoke through Noah. This was because no one knew what rain was

because it had never rained before and they had never experienced

it. Flip to the present day... We have never experienced the rain.

Stay with me now. Of course I’m not talking about physical rain,

but Spiritual Rain. I believe that very soon there will be

another "flood". Of course, I’m speaking of the Great Revival of

which my message "The Hand of the Lord Was Upon Me" was about. Now

when this "Spiritual Flood" happens it will be like no other revival

in history... So you see we never have seen the rain. We need to

apply the Bible more to our lives if we want a Spiritual flood to

occur more often. This "Spiritual Flood" will kill out sin in the

world, just as in Noah’s day. And the Lord will move in mighty

ways.

Now notice every time when the Lord speaks through a prophet

about revival, He calls it an outpouring of the Spirit. In the book

of Joel Chapter 2, verse 28, "In the last days, I shall pour out my

Spirit upon all flesh..." Have you ever wondered why the Lord uses

an expression like that when He speaks about the Spirit. Now I

researched rainstorms. Take apart the word "rainstorm" and what

have you got? You have rain which is defined as precipitation that

falls to the earth and provides life. And storm which is defined as

a disturbance of the ordinary conditions which stores power and

destruction. Spiritual rain is just that something that falls to

the earth which is necessary for life and causes a disturbance of

the ordinary conditions and detroys sin and godlessness. Storms

also refer to windstorms in which high wind is dominant. Look what

happened on the day of Pentecost. "Suddenly a sound like the

blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole

house where they were sitting."(Acts 2:2) The weather trembles at

the movement of the Lord.

Now take the definition of the word flood. "It is the tide

of land by the rise and overflow of a body of water." Let’s use

this in reference to John 7:38 " He that believeth on me, as the

scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living

water." So we got the River of Living Water. Picture that the

River of Living Water flooded and just pouring out. Kind of makes

you smile don’t it. Now if we are obedient we will have what Isaiah

spake about in Isaiah chapter 32 and the 15th verse, "Until the

spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a

fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest." He

is speaking of a Spiritual Flood that is coming soon. But we don’t

have to wait for the Great Revival to have our own Spiritual

floods. We can have them everyday. All we gotta do is what James

spoke of in James 1:22 "But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers
