The restoration of

 
 

We seem to come across a lot of discussions these days about  the restoration of the prophets, elders, healers,  http://jesussayscome.wordpress.com/2008/12/12/deceived-by-the-imposters-cults-sects-wolves-in-sheep-clothing/  or the restoration of the Jewish Nation, the land of Israel but how now  does it all really match as to what the Bible still says too?

 

Firstly the promised  restoration of the tabernacle of David is soley foremost by the substitutionary innocent death of Jesus Christ next actually is the expereince of the personal “Baptism of the Holy Spirit”, Pentecostalism, and the restoration of the personal method of the worship of God directly, not just the formation of the Church. (John 4:23 KJV)  But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.. and it is not a nationalistic empire building.

 
“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.” (Acts 3:20-21) “… Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” (Luke 21:24) “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part if happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob.”   Romans 11:25-26, 
 
Some persons still would try to say that Jesus’ supposedly  implied that although the time of favour for Israel was at that moment to pass over to the Gentiles, there next would be a time when God would restore again the “kingdom to Israel.” This idea still is rather is an unsubstantiated  assertion, directly not supported  in the New Testament. There is not one direct verse that says the Nation of Israel will be restored next in the New testament. Not one! Why? The Old Testament Jewish system was only a shadow of the New Testament Christian system, for  the Old Testament system  was done away with next as well. Some people even still wrongfully are  trying to hang on to the past, and make it important again too. Rather we may  and must rightly understand the things of God. (2 Tim 2:15 KJV)  Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
  
Too many people preach falsehoods because of their ignorance of the Bible firstly, and their listening to the lies of the devil.. They neglect the too obvious words of the Bible too.
   
(Amos 8:1 KJV)  Thus hath the Lord GOD showed unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit.  2  And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the LORD unto me, The end is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more. 3  And the songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day, saith the Lord GOD: there shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence. 4  Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail, 5  Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit? 6  That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat? 7  The LORD hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works. 8  Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? and it shall rise up wholly as a flood; and it shall be cast out and drowned, as by the flood of Egypt. 9  And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day: 10  And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.
  
(Amos 9:11 KJV)  In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:  12  That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this. 13  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. 14  And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. 15  And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.
  
and what is the promised restoration of the tabernacle of David now? The restoration of the nation of Israel? the  Temple worship in Jerusalem? or what? what does God say it is?
  
(Acts 2:29 KJV)  Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. 30  Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
  
(Acts 13:22 KJV)  And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.23  Of this man’s seed hath God according to his promise raised unto Israel a Saviour, Jesus:
  
What can be more clearer than this the restoration of the tabernacle of David it is the personal salvation of any of the Jews by Jesus Christ. It is certainly not the supposedly promised restoration of the nation of Israel, or the restoration of the earthly temple rituals in Jerusalem.
  
There is also no need for another temple now as well for we now have direct access to God again… (Mat 27:51 KJV)  And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; 52  And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,  (Rev 21:10 KJV)  And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,… 22  And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
  
The original Apostles of Jesus  themselves taught that Jesus was the promised Jewish Messiah.
  
2 Sam 6:14 KJV)  And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.1 5  So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet.
  
The personal baptism of the Holy Spirit expereince is the restoration of the tabernacle of David.. where Holy Spirit anointed, filled King David as a result DANCED before the Lord in praises.. the people not HOLY SPIRIT filled can tend to see only the restoration of the nation of Israel, the temple  and wrongfully too not the singing and the praises to God, worship side. Not a coincident that the anti Holy Spirit fundamentals, persons cannot see this truth too and tend to support as a  result the error filled,  WRONG dispensationalist, Jewish based restoration of Israel, Jewish temple rebuilding theology. (Isa 44:18 KJV)  They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand.
  
Whose Jerusalem? Whose Land?
 
(Acts 1:11 KJV)  Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
 

Fact one: Jesus denied that he himself was coming to restore the land, the nation of Israel.

(John 18:36 KJV)  Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

(Acts 1:6 KJV)  When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? 7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 8  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Fact two: The true  Apostles also did not work towards, support the  restoration of  the land, the nation of Israel, and only the unfaithful apostle Judas did.

Fact three: There is not one single New Testament direct, clear reference to indicate the present, future restoration of the land, the Nation. the Kingdom  of Israel as well.

Fact four: The possession of the land of Israel by the Jews was conditional on obeying and following after God.

 

(Gen 26:1 KJV)  And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar.  2  And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of: 3  Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; 4  And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; 5  Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws. 6  And Isaac dwelt in Gerar:

Num 14:23-24 Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it: But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land where into he went; and his seed shall possess it. 

Fact five: God has replaced the old testament, covenant with a new testament, covenant

Hebrews 8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: 9: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. 10: For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: 11: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.

(Heb 10:16 KJV)  This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17  And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. 18  Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. 19  Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20  By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21  And having an high priest over the house of God; 22  Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. 23  Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
 
(Mat 22:2 KJV)  The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, 3  And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. 4  Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. 5  But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: 6  And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. 7  But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. 8  Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. 9  Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. 10  So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. 11  And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12  And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.  13  Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14  For many are called, but few are chosen.

(Rom 3:29 KJV)  Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:

(Gal 3:16 KJV)  Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

(John 20:31 KJV)  But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

(Mat 23:38 KJV)  Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.39   For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. (Mat 10:34 KJV)  Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.  35  For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36  And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. 37  He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38  And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. (Heb 12:2 KJV)  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

(Acts 20:  KJV)  20  And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have showed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house, 21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

(Acts 26:20 KJV)  But showed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.

All this is an inappropriate issue for any serious, honest discussion .. it all now all belongs to Jesus Christ the Messiah who is no longer a Jew or a gentile! The Jews or the Palestinians thus as well have no biblical claim to this land any longer.

(Acts 2:22 KJV)  Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: 23  Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: 24  Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. 25  For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: 26  Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 27  Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 28  Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance. 29  Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. 30  Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

Being a true Jewish includes accepting  the true God and his true religion from the start to the end. The majority of Christians have often accepted the fact that Jesus of Nazareth–the founder of their religion, their Messiah, as the Jewish Messiah too, and the second part of the Trinitarian God–was God himself  and thus not only was a  Christian but indisputably a Jew  as well, and now so were his followers. The sole basis of the Christian faith, which is why it is also  called the New Testament as well is not at all the Old Testament Judaism but the New testament Jesus. The true Christians next always left their Jewish Synagogues all together… and all Christian Jews, Messianic Jews too need to do this today as well, also supposed to give up their Jewish roots, Jewish culture, Jewish religion  when they accept Jesus Christ as their master, lord and savior . some clerics, theologians, and scholars have worked hard to recover the historical Jewish Jesus. why?  Ironically this was aided also by the Jews, Judiazers, false christians   themselves who falsely wanted it seems  to promote their own self importance, value of the now rather false, obsolete judaic religion, and it’s the false observation of the letter of the law over the spirit of the law.

(Acts 20:29 KJV)  For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30   Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.31   Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.  (1 Tim 4:1 KJV)  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

(John 19:30 KJV)  When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. (Mat 27:50 KJV)  Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. 51  And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; 52  And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,53   And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.54  Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

(Gal 3:23 KJV)  But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. . 24  Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25  But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. 26  For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29  And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

(2 Cor 5:17 KJV)  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  18  And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19  To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20  Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

 

Jesus- Christianity- a religion starting in Judaism and then moving away from it on it’s own  or also initially  kicked out of it by the false Jews?  serving God’s purpose still.

(Gal 2:16 KJV)  Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

Sadly the Jewish issue is part of the biggest religious deceptions we all do face in life, and  this now has been true now for thousand of years where  Jewish people have lied about the importance of their Judaic religion  daily to us and they also have lied about the facts of Christianity, God’s will  as well to others.

For certainty also because of the demonic opposition the devil will try to discourage you from finding out reading about the Holy spirit, Charismatics, Pentecostals and the Bible. I know I have experienced this myself the last  40 years. So my sites will reflect, show you what I have learned, found out on these subjects for a start.
