October 2016 Newsletter - Release the Rain by Pastor Carol Pulley
RELEASE THE RAIN There is a spiritual and a natural interpretation of the scriptures that must be revealed or unveiled from simple minded or carnal understanding, by the Holy Spirit Himself. When you read about the days of creation in the book of Genesis, it says the earth (meaning us) had no form, was void, empty and in darkness. This is speaking symbolically of people who are in ignorance with no understanding of His Word. So when God said, “Let there be light,” He was manifesting His creative Glory and Power in a spoken Word, which is Yeshua our High Priest in the spirit of Wisdom and Revelation.
In 1 Co 2: 12-13 Paul says, “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.”
The Light of Gen. 1 is God’s revelation poured into us, so our minds are transformed, our hearts are unveiled and our souls are converted to Christ as we gain access beyond the veil into the Holy of Holies which is the realm of Glory in us, His spiritual tabernacles.
God said in Gen 1:26 "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
The definition of dominion has a similar meaning of the word parable, which also means to rule. Matt 13:10-11 explains that teaching in parables is compared to the mysteries of the kingdom. So the prophetic meaning is to take authority through the revelation to overcome the mind, will, and emotions. We overcome through the deep wells of teaching, like the roots of a tree that hold the water to sustain the tree above the ground. God sends us spiritual fathers: the Apostles and the Prophets (Amos 3:7, Rev 10:7) to teach us how to interpret the Gospel, through a parabolic language of the Secrets of the Mysteries. God calls us to be righteous, not meaning a “good person”, but rather one who has right understanding of the Word of God.
The Father used Moses as His Prophet, Messenger and Deliverer for Israel to declare in Deu 32:1, "Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak; And hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. Deu 32:2 Let my teaching drop as the rain, My speech distill as the dew, as raindrops on the tender herb, and showers on the grass. So here we see that the teachings come to us like the rain! In Hebrew rain is "matar" meaning the revelation that is hidden in the natural understanding of the Torah.
This is a foundational Truth and Parallel teaching that all living things have need of water or the rains (teaching) of restoration that wash and cleanse us from false teaching and twisted doctrines that brought spiritual death to us. We then become Sons of enlightenment to Release the Rain to others as His flames of Fire that are now purged to be able to unlock the Secrets of the Keys to the Kingdom.
Shalom & blessings
