Ezr 6:1 Then Darius the king made a decree, and search was made in the house of the rolls, where the treasures were laid up in Babylon.
Ezr 6:2 And there was found at Achmetha, in the palace that is in the province of the Medes, a roll, and therein was a record thus written:
Ezr 6:3 In the first year of Cyrus the king the same Cyrus the king made a decree concerning the house of God at Jerusalem, Let the house be builded, the place where they offered sacrifices, and let the foundations thereof be strongly laid; the height thereof threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof threescore cubits;
Ezr 6:4 With three rows of great stones, and a row of new timber: and let the expenses be given out of the king's house:
Ezr 6:5 And also let the golden and silver vessels of the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar took forth out of the temple which is at Jerusalem, and brought unto Babylon, be restored, and brought again unto the temple which is at Jerusalem, every one to his place, and place them in the house of God.
Joe 2:25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
The word teaches us, after the Judgments fall, a remnant will be restored, sound doctrine restored, things put back in order, and things fully restored.
There is a holy God fearing remnant world wide today, that are not called unto wrath, many in the apostate church, will be judged, the lord purges with a divine purpose in mind, and that purpose is restoration.
The lords judgments always bring back at least a remnant, a tenth, and that remnant will only come after they are judged, many more will become stiff necked and just be part of the great falling away Paul spoke of, in the last days, but a new remnant there will be.
What will the current remnant and the remnant that comes after punishment do, rebuild, reunite as one body in unity and it will be sound in doctrine, sound in faith, all will be decent and in order.
It is true this total restoration will never take place till we are in heaven, but in the mean time, even under the rule of Anti-Christ we will have a restored body, a restored Church, back to the book of Acts, they had all things in common, they were all equal and no man lacked what he needed.
Act 2:44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
Act 2:45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
Act 2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
Act 2:47 Praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
This came by way of the Apostles dealing with a current division and so they ordained deacons to oversee the problem and put things in order, the verses shown is the outcome.
This says we will always have problems, anytime you put a group of people together you will have problem's this is a fact, and it started from day one, and in the first month of the new Church born, but it was fixed and daily people were being added to the church.
After the coming famine, fall of the US and the West, the true bride will once again come together and for a while, they will be active and boldly doing the work of the lord. Later, this end time Church, due to persecution from the anti Christ will have to be what is called an underground church, but a church it will be, and a church that the gates of hell shall never prevail.
I am looking beyond all the bad events coming, it will be a short lived economic crash and famine, not a long one, due to the fact a new world currency will arise, and things restored, this is when we will see miracle after miracle on the small remnant church and its food and water , shelter provided in supernatural ways.
It will never be again a rich church as the first one was not, silver and gold have I none, but what I have I give you, rise and be healed, that is the kind of last day church we will see.
It will be a time of great numbers saved and great unity of mind and doctrine in this last day church, no programs, no youth groups, no summer bible school, no programs or grand cathedrals, but a humble, holy, and restored church moving in might and power.
This day of full restoration is in heaven and to the Jews in the end times. The Church will be under persecution as it was in the bible days, yet many were added to that church every day, that is restoration.
No more arguing about eschatology, pet pea doctrines, the coming Judgments will bring a holy oneness and a holy power from a spirit of holy restoration. We will be to humbled to be other wise. I look forward to those soon coming days, if I am alive.
The current remnant ones are the ones in deep preparation to lead in this coming restored N.T. last days Church. The current remnant is being prepared in secret places, to arise when called, what a day that will be.
We serve a God of restoration that is His heart, he is love and he is all about restoration.
