Many reach out to me with all manner of dreams about rain. From my observation, dreams about rain are very prophetic dreams. If you saw rain falling in your dream, my advice is that you treat such a dream as very important, because its symbolism is always deeply prophetic.

  • Prophetic meaning of rain
  • Biblical meaning of rain
  • Meaning of rain in the bible

As earlier mentioned, rain dreams are often very prophetic dreams, and prophetic dreams are dreams from God. On very rare occasions do dreams about rain come from the enemy. 

What is the biblical meaning of rain in a dream? Most rain dreams will come to notify the dreamer of what God is doing in their life. But in some other occasions, rain dreams can reveal underlying problems in a person's life.

Read on as I throw more light on this. 

Spiritual Meaning of Rain In The Bible

What does rain mean in the bible? 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—including the earth herself, man, plants and animals. Without the rain, every life form on earth would experience dehydration and die off. Every rainfall should be seen as a sign of God's love and blessings upon His creation. 

Ezekiel 34:26 KJV
And 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.


Rain in the Bible symbolizes abundance, fruitfulness, God's blessings, God's provision and protection, God's love, etc.

Isaiah 30:23 KJV
Then 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. This is why not all rain dreams are positive. Some could also come as an attack from the enemy.

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 several factors within our rain dreams. 

Prophetic Meaning of Rain

Prophetically, rain symbolizes many great things. Some of them are as follows:

  • A sign of abundance
  • Blessings
  • Fertility
  • Growth
  • Vitality, etc. 

Most times, when people see rain in their dream, it is a sign of a coming blessing and abundance:

Deuteronomy 28:12 KJV
The 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.

In most prophetic rain dreams, God is showing the dreamer that they have been faithful in their walk with Him, and He is about to reward them by blessing them. 

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 KJV
And 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. 

As seen in the above scripture, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit is likened to rainfall. In some dreams where a non-disruptive rain falls on the dreamer (especially a Christian), such dreams could mean that God is about to baptize and fill them afresh with His Spirit. 

Joel 2:23 KJV
Be 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.

Sometimes, 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. 

Spiritual Meaning Of Heavy Rain In A Dream

As I earlier mentioned, not all dreams about rain has a positive connotation. A pleasant and non-disruptive rainfall will always symbolize something positive, but when the reverse is the case, we cannot conclude such is a good dream from God. 

What is the spiritual meaning of rain in a dream? If the rainfall in your dream was heavy and seemed to be very troubling, such a dream is always an indication of serious challenges, problems and difficulties that could soon manifest in the dreamer’s waking life. Pray against this. 

Spiritual Meaning Of Walking In The Rain

If you saw yourself walking in a mild rain fall and you seemed to enjoy the rain, this is often a prophetic dream from God, signaling a coming blessing, abundance or outpouring of His Spirit. 

If you saw yourself walking under a heavy and stormy rainfall, and all your efforts to get under cover from the rain proved abortive, this is obviously not a blessings but problems that could manifest in your waking life. Always pray against negative rainfall dreams. 

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 God's 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 manifestation of this dream

Leviticus 26:3-5 KJV
If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; [4] 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. [5] 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 KJV
And 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, [14] 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 lets 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 KJV
That 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 ruggedly and watch out against every temptation and trap the enemy might throw in your path. You have been warned through such a 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. 

Psalm 34:19 KJV
Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. 

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. 

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.
