“When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?”
Why would this question be so important to the Messiah’s disciples that it would be the very last question they would ask him?
Then two chapters later, Peter says that JESUS CANNOT RETURN UNTIL THE RESTORATION OF ALL THINGS.
“And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. ”
Join us as we open all the Creator’s inspired scriptures and learn what the New Testament is truly showing us. Without the Old Testament, or the Hebrew Roots, we have no foundation to see what the LORD (YHWH) wants his children to understand about the Messiah and about his messianic mission during his first visit, or the Messianic era when he returns.The Old Testament (TaNaK) was written in Hebrew, and the New Testament (Brit Hadashah) was written BY Hebrews, so we better understand that perspective to truly understand what God (Elohim) says.
The New Covenant was only made with the “house of Israel” and the “house of Judah” (Jer 31:31, Heb 8:8). Today, these two houses, two nations, two witnesses are still divided and scattered throughout the world.
The re-unification of the two is part of the “Restoration of the Latter House”, which is the “whole House of Israel” or “All Israel” (Ezek 37:15-28, John 10:16-17, John 11:49-52, Rom 11:25). ELIJAH is to Restore all things (Matt 17:11, Mark 9:12), including the Feasts of the LORD (Lev 23) and a return to the LAW of Moses (Mal 4:4-5)
As our foundation, we observe ALL Scripture, and have three Biblical rules:
Rule #1: God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and God is not a man that he should change his mind (Mal 3:6, Heb 13:8, Num 23:19, James 1:17 and 1 Sam 15:29).
If you believe he changed something, refer back to rule #1.
Rule #2: Jesus said “The 5 Books of Moses remain in effect without the slightest change as long as we have this Heaven and Earth, and until all prophesy is accomplished” (Matt 5: 18, Luke 16:17).
Rule #3: Sin is the disobedience (violation) of the 5 Books of Moses (1 John 3:4). Lawlessness = Life without the 5 Books of Moses.
SHALOM: our peace to you!
