On basis of Jl 2:2324 and Acts 2:1621 some Pentecostals compare the former rain with the beginning of the 6th dispensation (NT era) and the latter rain with its end, beginning ca. 1890. The term Latter Rain Movement probably originated with the revival movement of R. G. Spurling* Sr. and Jr. (see also Church of God, 2).
