The Rain Of The Spirit – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional August 27th

(The Holy Spirit Has Been Poured Upon All People)

TO THE BIBLE: Joel 2:28
“And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.”

It’s quite significant how our opening verse likens the move of the Spirit in the last days to the pouring of water:

“…I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh….” Prophet Isaiah puts it this way: “Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high…” (Isaiah 32:15). Hosea 6:3 says, “…He will come to us like the rain, like the latter and former rain to the earth.”

Also, in Zechariah 10:1, the Bible says, “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.”

So, the Spirit was going to be “poured” from on high in the last days like rain. On the day of Pentecost, this rain poured out from Heaven on Peter and all the other apostles, and they were filled with the Holy Spirit: “And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:4).

From then on, they spoke the Word of God with boldness. One day, while Peter was preaching in the house of Cornelius, a Roman centurion, the Bible says the Holy Spirit “fell” on all of them that heard the Word (Acts 10:44). He fell on them like rain.

Then in John 7:38, we read the beautiful words of the Master: He said, “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” If you’ve received the Holy Spirit, this refers to you.

Just like Peter, you can go out in the power of the Spirit to share the Gospel with others, and the Holy Spirit will fall on them like He did in Bible days. Chains will be broken, sicknesses will disappear, curses will be lifted, and many will receive salvation. Glory to God!

Dear Father, I thank you for the ministry of the Holy Spirit in my life, pouring out rivers of living water from my innermost being. I’m a living fountain, and I give life to others in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
