Peter had three kinds of revelation as recorded in the New Covenant. When he saw the supernatural catch of fish, the very goodness of the Lord caused him to realize that he was a sinful man. The first revelation was that he needed to repent.
“When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, ‘Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!’” (Luke 5:8)
We also must admit that we are sinners and need to repent. This is a continual process in our hearts. As we yield more to the work of the Holy Spirit, we find more ways to turn to the Lord in our mind, will, and emotions.
Next, Peter recognized that Yeshua is Messiah and the Son of God.
Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Yeshua said to him, “Blessed are you… for flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father in heaven.” (Matthew 16:16-17)
Peter declared something born in him out of a revelation of the Holy Spirit. That revelation included the knowledge that Yeshua is both human and divine. It is important for us to dwell on this reality daily in our lives. Thirdly, Peter was given revelation by God concerning the fulfillment of prophetic scriptures in specific moments in his life.
“This is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy…’” (Acts 2:16-17)
As we confess our sin and declare Yeshua as Lord, we begin to see in scriptures personal applications for decisions in our lives. We can receive revelation and understanding of events happening around us. In these end days, it is vital for us to walk in prophetic revelation about Israel, the Church, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and the times we live in.
