Latter and Former Rains

Be glad, people of Tziyon!
rejoice in Adonai your God!
For he is giving you
the right amount of rain in the fall,
he makes the rain come down for you,
the fall and spring rains — this is what he does first.
Then the floors will be full of grain
and the vats overflow with wine and olive oil. ~ Joel 2:23-24, CJB




First Jew then Gentile

Then JewGentile, FormerLatter, oneness season is

First month’s outpouring—LatterFormer

Rains Refreshing, Restoring, Renewing

Overflowing Lands, Nations, Souls doubly

Bearing fruit—Multiplying.

First month’s downpour—Former plus Latter

Rains Reclaiming, Renaming, Remembering

Combining Latter with Former, becoming FormerLatter,

Clothing then unifying promises of:  Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob’s God—

Rains reaping what man has not sown—

End-Time Harvest.


Day of Pentecost was not so…just a glimpse…

Now, YoungOld—MaleFemale–MenservantsMaidservants


Same spirit then as now, yet FULLER;

AlphaOmega—FormerLatter—beginningend, endbeginning—

Promised new thing manifestation.


Best is last:  Kingdom principle.

FormerLatter pours and

Greater anointing, wisdom, zeal—

Greater dreams, faith, hope—

Greater gifts, visions, visitations follow—

Greater end-time latter rain than former.

FormerLatter:  New wine in new skins for eleventh hour.
