In the night my husband had gotten up because he heard the sound of rain. This is disturbing to him because we live in an underground house so we ne…ver know when it is raining. We have one front window and one front door. We seldom hear thunder. He opens the door and our porch and walk are not wet. He returns to bed. I slept through his movements.
It is breaking daylight and I crack my eye open and squint at the faint light filtering into the back bedroom. My husband is not there and I assume in the bathroom. I turn on my back away from the opaque light and hear the sound of rain. I do not understand how the sound of abundant rain is heard in the house. I am thinking it must be a deluge, maybe? It has been years since I heard rain on a house. I think on this and roll to the left and the sound of it puts me to sleep again. I sense my husband return to bed.
Morning is bright when I get up and my husband is gone already. I look outside to see how wet our porch and walk are but they are bone dry. I am confused. I then begin the preparation for the observance of Sabbath. My husband returns home at about 1pm, in the afternoon. I tell him that I heard the sound of rain. He becomes excited and explains that he had gotten up twice to look out the door because he could not not understand how he could have been hearing rain. He said both times were dry outside. He was confused at hearing the sound of rain.
Then I became excited because I understood what we heard was the last days outpouring of His Spirit in Acts 2 and Joel 2.:28.
I Kings 18:41 (The drought ends in Israel)
Then Elijah said to Ahab: “Go up and eat, and drink; for there is the sound of abundant rain.” NKJV
It is significant that this occurred on the 20th day of the counting of the Omer with 39 days lefts until Pentecost (the outpouring of His Spirit on His ancient feast day of Shavuot, Leviticus 24).
We are about to witness this profound movement where our sons and daughters shall prophesy (What will they prophesy? The wonderous works of God (Acts 2), repentance which is the the preparation for the return of Yeshua (it is His Hebrew name, and Greek is Jesus).
Old men will experience dreams and youths will have visions.
“I will wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be darkened, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible dayof the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the LORD shall be deliver: for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.”
