Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time. Acts 3:19-21.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלוהים) says:

When Jesus began His public ministry at the age of thirty years, He began it by identifying Himself in Scripture. He opened the scroll of My prophet Isaiah and declared His mission, the assignment on which He had come into the world.

And He opened the scroll and found the place where it was written, “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the LORD.” And He closed the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” Luke 4:17-21; Isaiah 61:1-2.

Jesus took flesh as the Word and by the Word, He began all He did with the Word, walked out His assignment with the Word, and ended His mission on earth with the Word. He fulfilled all of Scripture uniting God and Man in His one seamless life by the fulfillment of the Word of Salvation. My Will prospered in His Hands as He put His life in My hands.

Into Your hands I commit My spirit; deliver Me, LORD, My faithful God. Psalm 31:5.

And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.” Having said this, He breathed His last. Luke 23:46.

And not only did He commit His spirit into My hands to receive Him back again to raise Him from the dead but He also put all of you who believe in Him into His hands and all He has is Mine and all I have is His (We are one) so in His hand you are in My hand and there is NO snatching out of My hand.

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” John 10:27-30.

And what did He come to do? Look back at the Scripture by which He revealed Himself as He began His ministry after His baptism at the Jordan by John. He came to preach the good news of Salvation and of the Kingdom, to proclaim release to captives, recovery of sight to the blind, to set free the oppressed, and to proclaim My year of favor. What year is that? Jubilee. The oppressed are set free, slaves are released, lands are restored, and the double double portion of provision is poured out in a blessing that cannot be contained, which is prosperity at its uttermost.

All this because He came as the anointed One, the Messiah, to save you. For I did not send My Son into the world to condemn you but to save you. John 3:16-17.

Now is the favorable time, now is the day of Salvation! Do not ignore so great a salvation.

And working together we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain, for He says, “At the acceptable time I listened to you, and on the day of salvation I helped you.” Behold, now is “the acceptable time,” behold, now is “the day of salvation.” 2 Corinthians 6:1-2.

This is the age of GRACE. Grace on top of grace. It is time you took advantage of so great a time of refreshing. A time of restoration. A time of jubilee incarnate, dwelling in, with, and among you.

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us. Ephesians 1:7-8.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-7.

And Jesus proclaimed this as His opening call:

Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” Mark 1:14-15.

I anointed Jesus with the Holy Spirit and power, and He went about doing good and healing all those who were oppressed by the devil. Acts 10:38. I sent Him to undo the works of the devil. The devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy, I sent My Son to give you abundant life, so abundant that it overflows and pours out a blessing you cannot contain. It has to be shared for the knowledge of My glory will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. Glory is the exercise of power by love that produces goodness and drives out all evil. Evil, harmful things that encumber you cannot say in the presence of My Glory. And Jesus is My glory manifest.

So what do you do to have all this overflowing goodness in your life now? That is, to have the Kingdom in your life now. Well, you begin where Jesus told you: Repent and believe in the good news that Jesus brings.

Repentance, metanoia in Greek, has to do with renewing your mind to think like I do, which is above, instead like Satan does, which is below. It is to become one who walks by faith in My Word, as Jesus did, and not by sight (only by the physical senses looking at outward circumstances and not seeing inner spiritual realities).

But let My apostle Peter, who by My Spirit, led many people to experience the joy unspeakable filled with glory of salvation, 1 Peter 1:8-9, tell you how to access this amazing life that is in the world but not of the world, that is, days of Heaven even now in your life upon the earth, surrounded by the curse you can live the glories of Heaven—rule in the midst of your enemies. Psalm 110:2. For Jesus has put Satan beneath your feet. Keep him down there.

Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time. Acts 3:19-21.

In My presence is FULLNESS OF JOY. The delights at My right hand forever. In My house, you drink abundantly from the river of delight, living water, for with Me is the fountain of life and in My light you see light.

There is a pattern here that must be followed to have restoration and the infilling of the Holy Spirit so that you may have days of Heaven even now on earth in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation. For the world, under the lordship of Satan whom Adam abdicated his throne to and his lease of authority over the earth, is becoming darker and darker, covered in confusion, sickness, poverty, oppression, violence, and fear as the time of judgment and universal restoration come near, but on you, My Covenant people who know and revere My Name the glory is rising like the light of dawn, getting brighter and brighter until perfect Day. The Day that will never end. We have eternity.

Look again at the words of Peter to the astonished crowd in the Temple who had witnessed the amazing miracle of the healing of a man crippled from birth begging by the Beautiful Gate of the temple when Peter and John commanded him up on his feet in the Name of Jesus and you will find the road to your times of refreshing, and it is the same road back to the father’s house that the wayward son took in the parable Jesus spoke, which is known as the “parable of the prodigal son.” It is also the same road back to abundance, overflow, and the outpouring of My Spirit spoken by My prophet Joel many years before, thus releasing that way into the earth for Me to perform for you who follow it.

It is simple: Repent, return, rejoice, and I restore, and it is then you get filled with the Spirit. And in the life lessons that follow this one we will address each of the 4 R’s that bring you into My house for days of refreshment now and forever. Let your good Shepherd lead you to the abundant life He came to give you – the freedom and prosperity, health and blessing of the perpetual Jubilee.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and lovingkindness will pursue and overtake me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalm 23:5-6.

I love you. It is time for you to take seriously the signs of the times, for this is the acceptable time, this is the day of Salvation. You do not want to miss any of your benefits. And you do not want to miss what My Spirit is speaking to the church, the Body of Christ, so you can live out the extraordinary and unique life I prepared for you in advance that you might enjoy it and receive your full reward. I have given you the grace for your unique assignment, which means it will be what you enjoy, what you were born for. Jesus lived the life He was born for. He finished the work I gave Him to do. And He wants to enable you to do the same.

Will you let Him? It is hard to kick against the goad and miss the life you were born to live and enjoy beyond all you can ask or imagine. It is your time of refreshing. Repent, return, and rejoice, that is your part, and I will do Mine—restore and fill you up to overflowing with My Spirit.

How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings. They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; and You give them to drink of the river of Your delights. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light. O continue Your lovingkindness to those who know You, and Your righteousness to the upright in heart. Let not the foot of pride come upon me, and let not the hand of the wicked drive me away.  There the doers of iniquity have fallen; they have been thrust down and cannot rise. Psalm 36:7-12.
