A Recap of the Month of Rain

Month of rain

During the month of rain, we are presented with a sacred occasion to seek God’s abundant blessings. Much like the revitalizing effect of rain on the land, God’s spiritual downpour nourishes and enlivens the heart of the church. As we engage in this act of supplication, we prepare ourselves to receive the overflowing grace that God is eager to bestow upon us. Through this process, we anticipate not only personal renewal but also the opportunity to enrich the world around us with the fruits of His Spirit. This month has been filled with moments of abundant blessings from God’s grace, as we reflect on His continuous provision and revival of His people and His temple. This month of March marks the conclusion of the first quarter, themed around revival.

What took place in the month of Rain?

In this month of rain, we’ve earnestly asked God to bless us with His abundant showers. This rain stands as a testament to the uniqueness of our Mighty God, setting Him apart from all others. We rejoice and offer praise to God for answering our prayers, demonstrating His power and faithfulness. Hallelujah!

The week of “The Unprecedented rain of revival” 

In this season, God is leading us to sow and eagerly await the heavenly rain. When the rain of God comes, people will witness and testify to the reality of our true God. In times when individuals feel spiritually dry, lacking the voice of God, the taste of divine things, and the presence of the Holy Spirit, they often live solely by their own principles. As the rain begins to descend and fill this temple, may God grant you a flowing river.

In Greek, “revival” means “flourishing.” It’s like nurturing flowers, watering them tirelessly from morning till night. Those touched by the rain of revival feel as though they’ve glimpsed heaven and yearn to dwell there. Revival is all about experiencing life afresh, about awakening. Embrace the unfamiliar in your daily routines, within your family, and at work. May God exchange your burdens. Let the revival rain flow, bringing forth flourishing in your life. Invite life anew, and may God’s rain sustain you.

God has abundantly watered you, yet you’ve begun to take His blessings for granted. Remember, everything you’ve achieved is solely by the hand of God. Return to His love and humility, and kneel before Him once more. Allow the Lord’s hand to extend into your life, bringing resurrection and renewal.

Ezekiel 17:24
24 And all the trees of the field shall know that I the Lord have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish: I the Lord have spoken and have done it.

To bring back the rain, people must exert effort and sweat. It’s crucial to remain steadfast in prayer while the rain is still present. When God closes the heavens, nothing can occur. This rain we speak of is to reveal the true God, the One who never rests or sleeps.

This week, we were urged to open our eyes and take notice of the clouds, a subtle sign of the long-awaited answer to our prayers. The rain of God is about to pour down on every aspect of your life, as the heavens open wide for you.

Reference Scriptures;

I Kings 18:41, 44-46: 

41 Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain.” 44 Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!” So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.’ ” 45 Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain. So, Ahab rode away and went to Jezreel. 46 Then the hand of the LORD came upon Elijah, and he girded up his loins and ran ahead of Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel. 

The week of “Ask the Lord for rain”

Through the Holy Spirit, we have direct access to the Father. God’s desire is not just to have servants but to have sons and daughters who lovingly serve Him. His love for us is immeasurable, extending as far as the heavens are above the earth.

John 17:23

23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

As our Father, God loves each of us as much as He loves His Son, Jesus. He has uniquely created us, with no two individuals being exactly alike. From our fingerprints to our voices, from our ears to our scent, each person is distinct. Even the way we walk sets us apart, highlighting the beauty of God’s diverse creation.

God, in His divine wisdom as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, made a deliberate choice to fashion humanity in His own image, granting them authority over all creation (Genesis 1:26). Each step of the way, God showed meticulous care and attention in forming Adam from the dust of the ground (Genesis 2:7).

From the very beginning of your existence, even before you were born, God has been intricately involved in shaping every aspect of your being. You are not the result of chance or coincidence; rather, you are a masterpiece meticulously crafted by God Himself. When God gazes upon you, He sees His own glory reflected in your unique and beautiful design.

Ephesians 2:10
10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Your fingerprints serve as a daily reminder of your special status in God’s eyes. He has crafted you uniquely, with a specific purpose in mind that only you can fulfil. You are called to proclaim boldly, “I am God’s amazing daughter; I am God’s amazing son.” Embrace your identity as God’s masterpiece, created for His glory.

Galatians 4:6-7
6 Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba,[a] Father.” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.

During this second week, as we embrace the heart of our Heavenly Father and fervently seek His face, we enter into a season of humble submission before the Lord. Through prayer and fasting, we humbly approach God, seeking His divine guidance and direction for our lives. This dedicated time of fellowship with the Lord allows us to realign our steps with His perfect will and purpose for us. As we earnestly seek His presence, we open ourselves to receive His special guidance and direction, trusting in His wisdom and sovereignty over our lives.

Reference Scriptures

Zechariah 10:1:
1 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.

James 5:17-18
17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.

The week of “Rain as a witness of God’s goodness toward his people”

The Word of God is likened to rain, for it nourishes and brings life to the soul. Just as rain does not return to the sky without watering the earth, so too does the Word of God fulfill its purpose, enriching and fertilizing the hearts of those who receive it.

The kindness of God is evident in His provision for all people, regardless of their beliefs or actions. Just as rain falls on everyone, God’s blessings extend to all, reflecting His boundless grace and love for humanity. Even before we knew God, He knew us intimately, shaping and molding us for His divine purposes. Looking back, we can see countless instances where God intervened to protect and bless us, demonstrating His faithfulness and care in our lives. It is a reminder that we are not insignificant, but rather, we are cherished and valued by the Creator of the universe, destined to be a testimony of His goodness and grace.

Your presence today, despite the challenges and doubts you’ve faced, is a testament to God’s intervention and purpose in your life. Even in moments of despair and doubt, God’s hand has been at work, preserving and sustaining you for a greater purpose. It’s possible that even in the midst of hardship and uncertainty, you’ve experienced moments where divine intervention seemed inexplicable, defying medical explanations and human understanding. These experiences serve as reminders of God’s unwavering presence and care, even in the darkest of times.

Exodus 3:21-22 
“And I will make the Egyptians favourably disposed toward these people, so that when you leave you will not go empty-handed. 22 Every woman is to ask her neighbour and any woman living in her house for articles of silver and gold and for clothing, which you will put on your sons and daughters. And so you will plunder the Egyptians.”

God has a way of filling empty spaces, much like how Jesus was placed between two thieves on the cross. Sometimes, when God prompts someone to borrow from you, it may be part of His plan to provide for them because you have been abundantly blessed. Just as the children of Israel received abundant blessings, they also faced challenges in managing their newfound wealth.

God will provide undeniable evidence of His presence and care in your life, despite any opposition or hatred you may face from others. It’s crucial to recognize that your worth and destiny are defined by God’s perspective and plans for you, not by your own self-perception or the opinions of others. Pastor Emmanuel GBEREKPEE emphasized that God will bring fulfillment and blessings into every aspect of your life, including your personal endeavorsand aspirations. This is a season of abundant rain of blessings and divine intervention in your life.

Reference Scriptures

Acts 14:17: 
17 Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.

Isaiah 55:10: 
10 “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, 11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

The week of “The Rain of Righteousness”

The concept of the “Rain of righteousness” represents the abundant blessings and guidance that God bestows upon those who pursue a life of righteousness. It illustrates how divine intervention can transform lives, fostering spiritual growth and prosperity,

God’s desire is to lead His righteous people into unexplored territories, creating moments and circumstances that showcase His divine intervention in unprecedented ways. These opportunities allow individuals to witness firsthand the profound workings of God’s power and grace in their lives, opening up new dimensions of spiritual growth and revelation.

The rain of righteousness, a divine act of God, is governed solely by His sovereignty. It comes at His appointed time, and no one else has the power to reverse or alter it. When God releases His word, He ensures its fulfillment without fail, as He does not delegate His promises.

This righteousness is manifested through God’s word and His sovereign works. Our focus should be on trusting God’s methods rather than worrying about the how. God’s timing is perfect, and He works in due season, prompting His servants to prepare when the time is right.

Moreover, the rain of righteousness signifies God’s goodness and abundant grace upon His people. It serves to distinguish His chosen ones and demonstrate His favor upon them. As God prepares to create such times for the righteous, His people can anticipate experiencing His goodness in remarkable ways, making evident their divine selection.

The rain of righteousness brings about benefits that span short, medium, and long-term durations. In the short term, it impacts the lives of individuals who experience God’s presence and favor. In the medium term, it extends to future generations, leaving a legacy of righteousness and blessing. Ultimately, in the long term, it leads to eternal life and fellowship with God in paradise, offering a profound and everlasting reward for those who receive it.

May we all have the discernment to recognize the signs of God’s impending blessings, like a small cloud indicating the approach of rain.

Reference Scriptures

Hosea 10:12: 
12 Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

Isaiah 45:8: 
8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it.

The week of “In Jesus, we have become the righteousness of God” (Passover week)

In the spirit of Passover, a time of reflection on liberation and renewal, the phrase “In Jesus, we have become the righteousness of God” symbolizes a profound spiritual transformation. This concept reflects a journey from a state of bondage—marked by our shortcomings and failures—to one of freedom and righteousness, achieved not through our own deeds but through faith in Jesus Christ. It mirrors the essence of Passover through the lens of personal and spiritual redemption, emphasizing a rebirth into a life marked by grace, forgiveness, and a new relationship with the Divine.

1 Peter 1:18-20 
18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake..”

Passover holds profound significance as the moment of the ultimate bargain, where Christ’s sacrifice secured our freedom. However, if we merely view it as a historical event from 2000 years ago, we miss out on its transformative power.  Pastor Kibinda emphasized the importance of understanding our past and recognizing that we were once deserving of the same punishment as those who are currently facing spiritual condemnation. By reflecting on our own journey and acknowledging the grace and mercy extended to us by God, we gain a deeper appreciation for the significance of Easter.

Romans 9:22-26 

22 What if God, although choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath—prepared for destruction? 23 What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory— 24 even us, whom he also called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles? 25 As he says in Hosea:

“I will call them ‘my people’ who are not my people; and I will call her ‘my loved one’ who is not my loved one,”[a]

26 and, “In the very place where it was said to them,‘You are not my people,’ there they will be called ‘children of the living God.’”

Furthermore, he urged us not to let the symbolism and festivities of Easter pass us by without considering our own position in relation to it. We are prompted to ask ourselves whether Jesus died for us as well and, if so, to express gratitude to God for sparing us from the punishment we rightfully deserved. This reflection encourages humility and gratitude for the sacrificial love demonstrated by Christ on the cross.

Passover embodies God’s intention to deliver His people. It’s an event that occurs at a specific time in a person’s life—past, present, or future. While it may not have happened yet for some, there will come a time when God intervenes, marking a clear distinction between the past and the future. Passover signifies a transformative moment, a pivotal stand between what was and what will be.

Passover symbolizes God’s dual action—bringing salvation to His people and judgement to their adversaries, exemplified in the deliverance of the Israelites from Pharaoh’s grip. Passover isn’t innate; it’s destined for those enduring hardships, whether physical or spiritual. Pastor reassures someone in need of God’s intervention, affirming that God grants the desires of our hearts, and His blessings shield us from curses.

Reference Scriptures

I Corinthians 5:21: 
21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Passover Celebration

This was indeed a remarkable moment in this month, as we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus, our King and Savior. As we reflected on the profound sacrifice made on the cross and the priceless gift of salvation bestowed upon us, we gathered to partake in the holy communion. Subsequently, we engaged in a praise and worship evening, joined by Asaph International and the talented worshipper, Chryso Ndasingwa.


As we transition into April, the month of recovery from spiritual and emotional wounds in the divine season of recovery. In the month of rain, we’ve experienced the rain of revival, divine favour, and righteousness through Jesus. Hence, we are looking forward to entering into new divine dimensions. In the month of recovering from spiritual and emotional wounds, we will also join a journey of seven days of prayer and fasting with evening revival services.

May this month bring a special divine attention to your life. Shalom!
