Join us on our new podcast each weekday for an interesting story, well told, from Charisma News. Listen at charismapodcastnetwork.com.


Take a picture of the revival in Acts. Did they act like crazy folks? Some of the best people in Jerusalem took part in that revival. All classes of people were there. People were lying all around, getting healed, and multitudes were being saved.

It was the greatest revival, and divine healing was the drawing card. When people are healed, it does not mean simply healing, but it brings people to Christ. For example, consider the man healed at the beautiful gate of the temple.

Peter took the miracles as his text and preached. The authorities laid hands on him and commanded him not to speak or teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John preached in His name anyway. They prayed, and the Holy Ghost came in great power. The outgrowth of that healing in the temple was a great revival.

And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon's, and greatly wondering. —Acts 3:11

Lord Jesus, heal and save. Amen.
