9. What expressions in the prophecy of Joel seem to imply a double fulfilment of this outpouring of the Spirit?


"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." Joel 2 : 23. See also Hosea 6: 3.
NOTE - In Palestine the early rains prepare the soil for the seed sowing, and the latter rains ripen
the grain for the harvest. So the early outpouring of the Spirit prepared the world for the extensive sowing
of the gospel seed, and the final outpouring will come to ripen the golden grain for the harvest of the earth,
which Christ says is "the end of the world." Matt. 13: 37-39; Rev. 14: 14, 15.
