Now as the lame man who was healed held on to Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch which is called Solomon's, greatly amazed. So when Peter saw it, he responded to the people: "Men of Israel, why do you marvel at this? Or why look so intently at us, as though by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk? The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified His Servant Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go. But you denied the Holy One and the Just, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and killed the Prince of life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses. And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. Yet now, brethren, I know that you did it in ignorance, as did also your rulers. But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled. Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.
- Acts 3:11-21 (NKJV)

The Greek word translated as “refreshing” in the phrase “times of refreshing” as used in verse 19 literally means “a recovery of breath”, and figuratively means “Revival”. A great way to translate this verse would be “…so that times of revival may come from the presence of the Lord leading to a recovery of breath”.


I believe that God is sending a remarkable time of refreshing through the body of Christ to the world. This revival will first impact the body of Christ and then it will impact the nations of this world, to as many as will repent and be converted under the convicting power of the Holy Spirit.

This season of refreshing will continue to intensify until Jesus appears to take His body at the rapture. It will be characterized by three specific harvests - Miracles, Finances and Souls. These harvests will be unprecedented in nature and in quantity. We are about to experience the miraculous in shocking dimensions, receive financial inflows in boundless amounts and reap a mind-boggling harvest of souls.

Beloved, the time has come for the Great Revival that will eventually usher in the return of our Lord Jesus. Don’t miss this extraordinary visitation! Prayerfully prepare yourself for what is about to happen so that God will qualify you for His use during this time.

Prayer & Confession of Faith: I will not miss God’s extraordinary visitation! It is my time of refreshing – my time of great harvest of miracles, finance inflow and souls. Hallelujah!
