Wesley's Notes for Acts 3:21


3:21 Till the times of the restitution of all things - The apostle here comprises at once the whole course of the times of the New Testament, between our Lord's ascension and his coming in glory. The most eminent of these are the apostolic age, and that of the spotless Church, which will consist of all the Jews and Gentiles united, after all persecutions and apostacies are at an end.

    V.7 - this healing was a 'miracle'; a miracle healing is instant. Most healings are - just 'normal' ones, BUT - they are healings from Jesus. People may say, the meds healed me. But - meds have no power of their own; ALL power is of Jesus; His is the power in the meds. Jesus healed me of flu/pneumonia recently, but it wasn't a miracle; it took 3wks. with meds and the hosp. But- Jesus did the work.
