Times of Refreshing

As I was awakening the morning of 01/16/17 I heard the words, “times of refreshing are coming “. I then saw 2 alabaster pitchers being poured over me simultaneously.  One contained water and the other oil. The water was for cleansing and the oil was anointing  for commissioning. 

I was prompted to look where the phrase, “times of refreshing ” was found in Acts and found the following:

Acts 3:19

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,

Repentance comes first and then the times of refreshing follow.

This is for the body of Christ and is not directed, in my opinion, to unbelievers. 

I took special note that the cleansing and empowering happened simultaneously and were not 2 separate events.

It seems that the longer one is a believer the more hardened one can become to the gospel and the need for a repentant heart. 

The Lord says in His word that He dwells with those who have a contrite heart and a broken spirit. 

Isaiah 57:15


For thus says the High and Lofty One

Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:

“I dwell in the high and holy place,

With him who has a contrite and humble spirit,

To revive the spirit of the humble,

And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

Psalms 51:17
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,

A broken and a contrite heart—

These, O God, You will not despise.

Repentance must begin in the House of God and with the people who are called by His name.

  1. “And I will pour upon the house of David,
    and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
    the spirit of grace and of supplications:
    and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced…
    In that day shall there be a great mourning…”
    ZACHARIAH 12:10 – 14

    This mourning is the RESULT of the spirit of GRACE and SUPPLICATIONS being poured out on the people of God! Grace to return us to a people of a broken heart, a contrite spirit and a life that once again trembles and honours God’s Word! In the pouring out of such grace upon us and the resulting response from our hearts we read of God’s response…

    “In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David
    and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness”
    ZACHARIAH 13:1

    Even so Lord pour out upon us the “spirit of GRACE and SUPPLICATIONS” that we may be turned from our carnality and carelessness. Turn us again unto the right way, the way of repentance and restoration. May we as the prodigal son return broken and contrite from the folly of our worldly ways, where we have secularized your people, we have called ourselves by other names, we have met in the name of an organization, a teacher and a movement rather than simply coming together unto THEE. We have separated ourselves from the “lesser” brethren. We have elevated ourselves against those who are blood washed in the same blood that has purchased us, and in so doing we have separated ourselves from you. Bring us again to the common faith; to the discerning of the Body of Christ. Cause us to hate the sin in our hearts more than the inconsistencies in our brothers and sisters. Work in us to will and to DO of your good pleasure. Unite those who are yours that we may once again meet in the power of your Name and the Glory of your Presence.

    EVEN SO LORD COME!
