Restoration ?

9/7/23



In many churches today there is a goal of restoring the church to what it was in the first century. This can never happen because God has made changes to the church that these restorers do not know and would not believe even if someone told them. The truth of restoration of pure doctrine to the church was foretold by Jesus when he said, “Elijah shall come and restore all things.” Matthew 17:11 The obvious questions are why restoration was needed and who is this Elijah. The answer to this question is Matthew 24:4-5 . Many would come in the name of Jesus and deceive many. This verse is not saying that many would come saying they were Jesus but that they would come IN HIS NAME preaching that Jesus is indeed the messiah but at the same time deceive many people.

Just think about it, how many churches do you know that preach false doctrines but do not deny that Jesus is the messiah? Also if someone “comes in your name” do they claim to be you? Jesus came in his Fathers name, was Jesus the Father ?

This is why God had to make changes in the organization of the church as Ezekiel 34:1-19 prophesied. There are today in the Pentecost church no human ministry because God removed them totally and He and His son Jesus took over COMPLETELY. This had to be done to combat the extreme deception that God knew would come and was also affirmed by the prophets and Apostles. Then Gods Holy Spirit would through Jesus the mediator teach the saints directly thus eliminating any opportunity for deception. What is seen in all churches today is a very poor attempt to imitate what they think is the truth but all of it is Satanic deception of carnal minds. In todays churches one person ,on a day they think is holy , is in charge. He or she speaks while the flock listens and obeys. Deceive that one person and the rest will follow. No one in the churches can stand up and question or challenge what the pastor says. They sing songs and perhaps pass the collection plate say some prayers then go home two fold more a child of the devil than when they went in. Satan and his ministers do not come with horns and a pitch fork but as angels of light as wolves in sheep’s clothing. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 The churches are the synagogues of Satan that God calls people out of not into. Scripture is very plain that near to the end of the age people will be deceived, Revelation 12:9 , but the people in the churches do not believe this. In that day there will be only a very small remnant; Isaiah 1:9 , Romans 9:29 , 2 Peter 2:6 , Isaiah 10:20 of true Christians left alive that have the promise of Gods protection from the hour of trial that will come upon the whole Earth. Revelation 3:10 , Isaiah 54:17 . There are some people who are beginning to understand that organizations of men are false but yet still have issues with making a clean break from them. None will ever be truly free until they do. Worldly churches have an extra mediator called pastor, preacher, minister or reverend who the people view as a spiritual guide that God uses to teach them. Do I need to show the scriptures that plainly disprove all of this ? The first century church did have these offices but today they are gone and replaced by God and His Son and the saints are taught and led by them only. How valuable is your salvation to you ? Most place their salvation into the hands of some man who comes in the name of Jesus but is a deceiver. Would you give over your physical life to some man, why then your spiritual?

Hebrews 11:6 Do YOU diligently seek God, do you, or have you turned that over to some man. Your faith should never be in any man to be the seeker for you. You are to seek, you are to have faith and believe to be rewarded. You nor I can subcontract out our responsibility to do these things, invest ourselves in them and hunger and thirst for them. The Apostles, Prophets and Jesus all emphasized how we all have our own duty to seek God diligently because no one will ride into the kingdom on the coattails of some preacher or even any of the Apostles. This is what a personal relationship with God and Christ is all about. I have read posts here on Simply Christian where people have written how frustrated, hurt and helpless they feel when churches they had attended preached things and did things they knew scripture refuted. They ask, where can I go to receive Gods truth ? The answer is to God and eliminating all human ministry. God will teach you, His Elijah Spirit through Jesus will restore what has been lost from many years of false preaching. It will require a lot of faith to do this because it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Humble yourself, feel Godly sorrow about your sins and repent and in sincere prayer ask for forgiveness and for God to teach you His truth. Your choice is God or man, what will it be ? The Elijah mentioned in the book of Kings was just a man, the spirit and power was God. John the baptist was just a man the spirit and power was God. The Elijah to come that Jesus spoke about is not a man at all, it is Gods Holy Spirit that will restore all things. John 16:13 , John 14:17 , John 14:26 Jesus said plainly that the Holy Spirit is the teacher, the Elijah to come and restore all things , do you believe this. No man or organization is going to restore anything because it is Gods business not theirs.

How many times do we get burned before we come to realize that Revelation 12:9 is the truth. The world is deceived but the church is not of the world, Christ was not of the world. The churches of the world are of the world. Do the world’s churches know Yahweh, Christ, the gospel, salvation, law / grace/ sin / righteousness ? Today many churches accept abortion, homosexuality, transgenderism, females in ministry, trinitarianism, immortal soul, once saved always saved, universalism and legalism and other false doctrines, but they all come in the name of Jesus saying Jesus is the messiah. Matthew 24:4,5 …remove the commas from these verses that deceived translators placed there. John 5:43 is directly related to Matthew 24:5,6 What Jesus warned about came to pass , do you see it ?

Over the past couple years, I have come to see the issues with these man-made churches. If someone were to look at the history of the behavior of "christians" through the centuries, I would expect that someone to be flabbergasted at the failures of those churches. While claiming to be serving God, they instead were serving the prince of this world. While there are those who have been awakened by the grace of God while in those churches, the great many voluntarily stay deceived in order to "fit in."

If peer pressure shows itself to be stronger than one's desire for truth, I think we can see who is being served.

Still, I live in expectation that Yahweh will call His own out of those churches. I think it is happening now, and may have been happening for quite a while now.

Since righteous Able until today Yahweh calls out those appointed to be saved at this time. The people who refuse to come out are Laodiceans.
The worlds churches are the synagogues of Satan. In the past I was in one of them but Yahweh called me out and I responded and came out therefore chosen.

The enemy, Satan, has infiltrated the church and Yahweh now calls people out of Babylon to put them into HIS invisible church. Yahweh now is working with the Philadelphia church opening a door for them, teaching them by HIS spirit through Christ.
