A "strong delusion" has come over the Church and has blinded many to the Truth and meaning of “The Restitution of All things”, which must happen first before the coming of the Lord and the great and terrible day of the Lord!
Acts 3:19Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. 20And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: 21Whom 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.
What started in the garden, must end with the garden, Adam and Eve had choice, the restored Garden people must still have choice, "choice" must still an option, man and women must have the choice and option to sin, but they choose not too, and this is is restoration! Why? Because the restored garden people will have tasted sin and have experienced and seen the effects of sin; once they have tasted the restored garden glory with El Shaddai the choice will be to stay in the garden and NOT to fall into sin, knowing the consequences of sin, hating sin! After experiencing the fallen world, and then experiencing the garden glory with El Shaddai, who would want to go back to the sinful world. Sin, something Adam never understood until after the fall. Remember our previous verses? his desire is to present to himself a glorious church, no spot or wrinkle, and holy! Eph 5:27 and the bride body must come into the measure and fullness of Christ. “all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” Eph 4:13. He will give us this opportunity on the Earth to walk in HIS completeness and fullness as he walked, perhaps for weeks, for a season, maybe a year or two, I do not know, but we must look to the scriptures for answers.
The question is do we have a pattern of Adam this in the scripture of overcoming sin? Yes Yeshua, He is our perfect example Rom 5:14 ! Remember patterns in scripture are called similitudes and are considered prophecy, Hsa 12:10 . So Jesus is the pattern or similitude of Adam he is known and called in the scriptures as the 2nd Adam1Cr 15:45, who also knew the glory of God before the foundations of the world, and after taking on the form of man, he choose to walk in holiness; He was tempted by Satan, but He unlike Adam overcame temptation Mat 11:5 . Jesus is the head of the church, and the overcoming bride/church is the body; the bride- body will walk in the footsteps of the Head which is Jesus, the 2nd Adam, because the body follows where the head goes… right, doesn’t this happen in the natural world? Where the head leads and directs the body? Yes! Just as the hands and feet of Jesus walked and brought restoration to those whom he touched, not just some he touched, but all he touched; Jesus was not hit and miss on his healing and restorations. There will be a day soon that the bride will walk in the fullness and completeness as he walked, bringing healing and restoration to the weary and the lost! The Seas, the wind, the disease and death obeyed him! Remember Jesus walked as the 2nd Adam and HE took dominion over the earth, bringing salvation life and restoration of body, soul and mind. Jesus told us that greater works will WE do, Jhn 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
The restoration of all things is before us, the bride of Christ will walk as the 2nd Adam Jesus walked taking dominion as Adam/Eve also moved dominion in the garden before the fall. We are a part of the 2nd Adam, because He is the Head, we are the body, we are his other half!
Jesus who is the 2nd Adam has overcome ALL and has brought Part 1 to the restoration process, he has gone before His Church bride, He has made the way, cleared the ground for his beloved; Part 2 is now for his bride, his partner, the overcoming wise virgin bride found in the church body to come into completeness and fullness in HIM. His body will follow a blueprint pattern that was set by HIM; the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.
The bride of Christ which is the body will follow in like manner as Christ the head of the body who walked as the overcoming second Adam! These things must happen BEFORE HE RETURNS, Mat 17:11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
God will not be mocked, he will subdue all things, 1Cr 15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
The Restoration of all things is the dispensation of the fullness of times, Eph 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; [even] in him all ages have to do with time and times, but there comes an hour eventually when time has reached its fullness. Fullness has been regarded by the church as fullness in number only, but the fullness Paul speaks of is a “mystery”, the scripture point to a fullness which means “completeness”, which is what Christ also refers to as what must come before the “Great and terrible day of the Lord”, it is the “restoration of all things” completing the entire head and body of the 2nd Adam! Rom 11:25 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 is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.
· This is a mystery is the completeness and the fullness of the bride of Christ is until the fullness( complete) of the Gentiles be come in. And so shall all Israel be saved." Rom. 11:25. Strongs: Fullness is completeness a.) Fullness and complete b) completeness or fullness of time 3) fullness, abundance 4) a fulfilling, keeping.
Fullness is completeness, it is when we have all come into the unity of the faith, and unto a perfect man, and the measure that is the fullness the completeness of Christ is fully formed in us! Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: This is the body of Christ walking with Christ as ONE as the second Adam having dominion as He walked and moved on this earth. The body following the footsteps and the path of the head Christ, this is part of the blueprint pattern for the bride of Christ! The BODY (Church Bride) must follow the Head (Christ) to make the Second Adam will be made complete in his fullness when his bride body walks in her fullness with HIM!
The completeness and fullness as must be walked out having the authority and dominion on Earth as the First and the second Adam walked. The overcoming Bride will be the firstfruits to walk and move as ONE with Christ in this restoration of all things (Acts 3:20), which is the fullness of the gentiles, it is the Perfect man and the Measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ that will be fully formed in them (Eph 4:13) as well as having dominion over every living thing that moves upon the earth. (Gen 1:28)
The Church body must come into the riches of the fullness and completeness in their assurance and in their understanding which will result in speaking the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, which is… Christ the Head, the bride/church knit together as one corporate body fully functioning as one restored body without spot or blemish moving fully functioning as one full and complete body! Col 2:2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;
The supporting scripture for the “restitution of ALL things", is insurmountable, unavoidable and breathtaking beyond what can imagine! Jesus the second Adam, walked in dominion, but he did not walk in the “garden jungle” He walked in dominion over all things, subject to no man, creature or element, only subject to God himself. Because of the RESTORATION of ALL things, there must be a type “garden of Eden” as perhaps even as Adam did, in a dimension or place unknown; maybe it is this Paradise of God, mentioned in Rev 2.
Jesus, the 2nd Adam did not walk in garden glory type perfection during his ministry as we know. The PARADISE OF GOD perhaps is the former garden glory that will be restored; not all will walk in this garden glory with El Shaddai, only the wise virgins, the overcomers, and the bride body of Christ, before the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord, otherwise known as the Tribulation and the garden gate will be open for those garden overcomers. We see the open gate in Acts 3, the Gate Beautiful where the lame man was healed, followed by the proclamation by Peter of the “times of refreshing” and the “Restoration of all Things”! We also see a type and similitude of Acts 3 which is like the times of refreshing, where Jesus/Yeshua supplies the disciples, HIS power is given to them followed by, healing, and heavenly provision supplied to the disciples in Luke 9, which we will discuss further in this study.
Restoration of ALL things means just that... ALL THINGS....the first order of business begins with the children, restoring is the hearts of the children to the fathers; it starts first with the children, I believe this to be part of the “times of refreshing”.
