Joel 2:28 "And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions."
Romans 8:9 & 11 "But ye are not in the flesh, but in the spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His.
   Peter tells us in Acts 3:19 that it is a “time of refreshing...from the presence of the Lord,” a time when God visits us with a refreshing of His blessings, by reviving the hearts of His people and convicting and regenerating precious lost souls. Most of us will agree that today we need a definite, positive refreshing from the presence of the Lord. I know, without the shadow of a doubt, without the Spirit of God being poured out upon us as water upon the thirsty and floods upon the dry ground, we can do nothing. Without the Spirit of God we are as ships with no wind for our sails, as branches with no sap to give life, as coals with no fire. Truly, without Him we can do nothing (John 15:5). And when the Lord begins to pour out His Spirit, there will be times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord. The hearts of God’s people will be revived, prayer will be finding its way to the throne of God’s eternal grace, and God’s people, like Jacob of old, will wrestle with Him and will not be denied until they receive the blessings from on high.

  When God pours out His Spirit as floods upon dry ground, sinners will be convicted and brought guilty before the triune God; they will be made to turn to God from their sins. Cries of repentance will go up to God, hearts will be broken, homes will be made over, whole communities will be stirred, and sinners will be delivered by the power of God. They will be taken out of the kingdom of satan and translated from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light in the Lord Jesus Christ.

  When God begins to pour, His people will become very fervent for the truth. They will be fearless and bold as they are filled with the Spirit of the living God, and none of Satan’s strongholds will be able to stand before them all the days of their lives.

  Yes, when the Spirit of God is poured out upon us in times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord, our petty differences will be put away, love will be manifested, our lives will be changed, and that holy boldness of our God against sin will be upon us. The world will also take note that we have been with the Lord Jesus Christ.
