Revelation 19:9-11 NKJV … Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’ ” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.” 10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.

Psalm 68:7-10 NKJV

7 O God, when You went out before Your people{in battle}, when You marched through the wilderness, 8 The earth shook; The heavens also dropped rain at the presence of God; Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel. 9 You, O God, sent a plentiful rain, whereby You confirmed Your inheritance, when it was weary. 10 Your congregation dwelt in it …
.
From NetBible Ps 68:7

  • went forth before Your people = lead your people into battle –Jdg 4:14
  • * marched through the wilderness{desert} = describes how the God of Sinai marched across the desert regions to do battle with Sisera and his Canaanite army –Jdg 5:4

From NetBible Ps 68:8Jdg 5:4

  • heavens/clouds dropped/dripped[05197] = prophesy, preach, discourse by inspiration
  • * tells how the God of Sinai came in the storm and annihilated the Canaanite forces led by Sisera. The presence of allusion does not mean, however, that this is a purely historical reference. The psalmist is describing God’s typical appearance as a warrior in terms of his prior self-revelation as ancient events are reactualized in the psalmist’s experience.

.
From NetBible Hos 6:3 & Ps 86:11

  • Psalm 86:11 Teach[03384] me Your way, O LORD
    .
    Hosea 6:3 … So let us know{acknowledge}, let us press on to know{acknowledge} the LORD. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering[03384] the earth.
    .
  • rain watering/teach[03384] = to shoot arrows, to throw water, rain, to flow as water, to instruct, to point out (as if by aiming the finger)

Notice how the word for rain/ watering is the same as teach. This is very comforting. To those who press on to know and acknowledge the Lord with an undivided{pure} heart, He will come like rain to water/teach{fill} personally.

.
From NetBible 1Cor 14:31
For you can all prophesy one by one, that all may learn and all may be encouraged.

  • prophesy[4395] = speak(or sing) divine inspiration: to teach, refute, reprove, admonish, comfort others
