Many people dream about rain almost on a daily basis. Rain dreams are very common among Christians and non-Christians alike. Join us as we explore the meaning of rain dreams from a Biblical perspective.
Meaning of Rain In Dream
Rain was created by God to provide adequate moisture to all living things on earth (Genesis 2:5). Everything that has life in the earth realm needs water to survive.
The earth as a living being thrives on rainfall. Adequate rainfall in its due season ensures the sustainability of life on earth.
Rain is good and every thing God made appreciates it—the earth, man, plants and animals. Without the rain, every life on earth would experience dehydration and die off. Every rainfall should be seen as a sign of God's blessings and remembrance of His creation.
Ezekiel 34:26 KJVAnd I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.
Isaiah 30:23 KJVThen shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures.
It is always good to have adequate rainfall at the right time. But you can agree with me that, sometimes, the amount of rainfall can become excessive; leading to flooding, loss of life and properties.
Sometimes, rainfall disrupts our trips, plans for the day or activities. Sometimes, certain locations on the earth experience acid rain. Therefore, the meaning of rain in dreams can either be positive or negative, depending on every factor surrounding our rain dreams.
Prophetic Meaning of Rain
Prophetically, rain is seen as a sign of abundance, blessing, fertility, growth and vitality. Most times, when people see rain in their dream, it is a sign of a coming blessing and abundance:
Deuteronomy 28:12 KJVThe Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
The Former And Latter Rain
Rain also symbolizes the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The initial and last days outpouring of the Spirit is captured in the book of Joel as the former and latter rain.
Joel 2:28 KJVAnd it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:Joel 2:23 KJVBe glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
Most times, when people see rain falling on them in their dream (and if the dream came with an amazing feeling), it is often an indication that they will soon receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The prophetic meaning of rain in dreams can as well point to the very presence of God upon a person's life.
Biblical Meaning of Rain In A Dream
The Biblical meaning of rain in a dream is often positive. If God chooses to show you something using rain in your dream, rest assured, it's for good.
Rain in the Bible symbolises blessings. When a Christian dreams of abundance of rain, this is likely the Lord revealing and speaking to them concerning a coming exceedingly great blessing. If you have been aligned with God, prayerful and obedient to Him for a long time; in expectation of a new thing or breakthrough, rain dreams can be given to you as a confirmation of your answered prayer. All you need to do is thank God, keep on praying and waiting for the manifestion of this dream.
Leviticus 26:3-5 KJVIf ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;  Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.  And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.
Deuteronomy 11:13-14 KJVAnd it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the Lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,  That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.
God Sends The Rain On The Just And Unjust
The Bible also let's us know that the Lord sends rain on both the just and unjust. But the unjust must understand that if God brings a blessing their way, it is out of His mercy. If a person is not living right, they cannot lay hold of all the blessings God has in store for them. It is good to repent and walk with God in complete innocence and obedience.
Matthew 5:45 KJVThat ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
Dream of Rain Falling On Clothes
If you dreamed that you hung your clothes outside so they could dry off, but rain fell on them and got them wet, understand that this is a warning and a sign against impending danger. Pray hard and watch out against every temptation and trap the enemy might throw in your path. You have been warned through such dream, so do not fall for the enemy's tricks.
If you pray effectively against this dream, no evil shall befall you.
Dreams of Rain Inside The House
Dream of rain water entering the house or rain coming through the ceiling is very common. These dreams point to many troubles plaguing or about the plague the life of the dreamer.
The enemy does not just wake up to touch everything concerning us, except we opened the door for him or except God allows him to do so. If we see such a dream, the first thing we must do is to find out if where we sinned against God and then repent of that sin.
If a person dreams about rain coming through their roof or window into their apartment, it shows that a door has been opened for the devourer spirit. Close that door and rebuke the devourer off your life and everything concerning you. If you are already going through multiple challenges, this dream further reveals to you that something is not right somewhere. The enemy is directly involved in your situation. By the power of God, confront and send him packing! Ask that the Lord restores to you what has been ruined in your life and stolen from you.
Psalm 34:19 KJVMany are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
Walking In The Rain Dream Biblical Meaning
If you dream about walking in the rain, notice the feeling the dream brings. Was it pleasant or disturbing? Were you trying to get out of the rain or were you enjoying the rain? This will go a long way to determine the meaning of your dream.
There are people who find themselves walking in a calm and peaceful rain and the feeling was amazing. This is often a good omen.
But there are also those who dream about seeing themselves in a heavy rain with a stormy weather. Their clothes were wet and they had a hard time finding cover from the rain. This dream portrays troubling times coming the dreamer's way. This type of dreams as well demands serious prayers.
Dream of Heavy Rain And Flood
To dream and find oneself under a heavy rain with gushing erosion or flood is not a good omen. Some people have had such dreams where they got soaked in the rain and lost their shoes in the flood. This often points to marital challenges and demands serious prayers from the dreamer.
