THERE WAS A 'FORMER RAIN' REVIVAL THEN, AND THERE IS A LATTER RAIN REVIVAL NOW.  Not all were in the one then, not all are in the one now.   Are you in the revival of the last days?  Are you getting the downpour of the Holy Spirit in your life?  Or  is it just a 'sprinkle' not a downpour, that you are receiving.

The answers is  complex...  Let me give some 'if' challenges to help each determine if they are IN THE REVIVAL, or just getting a bit of the OVERFLOW from someone else in the revival of now.



If the Spirit within you encourages you to glorify the Lord Jesus, it is the Holy Spirit filling you...
but, if the spirit within you disparages and denigrates the Lord Jesus, up to and even sometimes blaspheming Jesus, it is demonic spirits.

John 15:26 (KJV)
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, He shall testify of Me:


If the Spirit within you encourages you to read, to study the Book that He authored and wants to be used to confirm all spoken words from Him, it is the Holy Spirit filling you.
If the spirit within denigrates, finds fault with the message of the Bible, and encourages one to avoid it, it is demonic spirits.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 (KJV)
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

2 Peter 1:21 (KJV)
21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.


If the Spirit filling you is gentle, loving, kind, but still identifies sin, convicts of evil you may unintentionally find yourself in, then that is the Holy Spirit.
If the spirit within is justifying sin, is patting you on the back for sins you find condemned by Jesus and the apostles, it is demon spirits.

John 16:8-11 (KJV)
8 And when He is come, He will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9 Of sin, because they believe not on Me;
10 Of righteousness, because I go to My Father, and ye see Me no more;
11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.


If the Holy Spirit within you is producing love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, temperance (all four, they are not 9 different fruit, but one fruit of all nine things) then you are filled with the Holy Spirit.
If the spirit within is not producing this good fruit, but is bringing turmoil, anger, variance and strife, it is evil spirits influencing, not the Holy Spirit.

Galatians 5:22-25 (KJV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance
: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

More ways to determine if you are in the revival
that is starting now,
and going to build and build till the rapture...
to come!
