The Rain of The Spirit And The Rain Of The Word By David Oyedepo

The First type of rain we talked about earlier is the Rain of Righteousness, in this article, we will discuss two more types of rains.
The rain of the Spirit
It will also take a thirst, a crave, a yearning to release the rain of the Spirit.
God wants to pour out upon all flesh the rain of His Spirit, but what may constrain Him from releasing Him to you is the state of your heart. He will check to see if you’re genuinely thirsty or whether you’re asking out of a religious sense because everyone else is asking! In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying,
If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on Him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) John 7:37-39
Basically therefore, a thirst is what you need to release the rain of the Spirit.
The rain of the Word.
The third type of rain is the rain of the Word. You also need a genuine thirst emanating from your heart to contact it.
Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come buy wine and milk without money and without price. Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. Isaiah 55:1-2
The Word of God is likened to water in Ephesians 5:26. It is also described as milk in I Peter 2:2, and strong meat in Hebrews 5:12-14. The Word is “that which satisfieth,” but you must constantly thirst for it, to be satisfied by it. Later in verse eleven of the same Isaiah 55, it is written,
“So shall my word be…” Therefore the entire chapter is a prophetic parable on how to encounter the rain of the Word of God. The trigger for the rain of revelation or the rain of the Word is a genuine thirst.
