Are you optimistic about the future?
So am I.
I’m glad to see Donald Trump on the verge of moving into the White House.
I’m hopeful he’s going to do his best to “make America great again.”
But it will take more than better governance in Washington to heal our land.
That’s why I wrote a very optimistic new book – my first new title in six years. It’s called “The Restitution of All Things.” The title comes from something the Apostle Peter said in Acts 3:
But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.
Repent 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.
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.
For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.
Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.
Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.
Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.
– Acts 3:18-26
Isn’t that beautiful?
But what is this “Restitution of All Things” Peter mentions – something all the prophets of old spoke about?
It’s the fact that Jesus is returning to rule and reign with His faithful friends – true believers like you and me – for a thousand years on Earth.
Would you like to know more about that time, which, as a student of prophecy for 40 years, I believe is right around the corner?
It’s what this new book is all about. I searched through the Scriptures for years to learn as much as I could about what the prophets have to say about this great and blessed hope for mankind’s redemption, a heavenly kingdom here on Earth, a time of refreshing, rest, justice, peace.
With all the prophecy books out there emphasizing and theorizing about what’s coming next in the way of a brief period of tribulation and destruction, I decided to look ahead to see what the prophets say about what life on Earth will be like during those thousand years of life under the reign of the Son of God.
I promise you there will be some surprises. But I’d rather you be surprised now then later – because Jesus has some hard things to say about the coming judgment. He tells us in Matthew 7:21-23 , for instance:
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
“The Restitution of All Things” was written in the hopes of getting more people to know the real Jesus, not the one preached to tickle your ears, keep you coming back for your weekly dose of teaching by men and to increase your tithing. It’s straight out of Scripture and designed to get you deeper into God’s Word with a new closeness to Jesus and a real anointing by His Holy Spirit.
Here are just some of the questions I address, using almost exclusively the Word of God for the answers:
- Is the story of the New Testament really grace vs. the law? Or has grace always been around and is the law forever?
- What is the ultimate destination of redeemed mankind – heaven or earth?
- Why is there so much focus in the prophecy world on events leading up to the return of Jesus and so little about what follows?
- What is the central conflict Jesus has in the gospels, and what was the great error of the Pharisees?
- Is it possible today’s believers in Jesus could be making the same error as the Pharisees of His time?
- Has the New Covenant been fulfilled? Who is that covenant between?
- What is the great hope about which all the prophets from Adam to John the Baptist preached?
- Why is studying the prophecies of the Kingdom of God important to us in the here and now?
- Did Jesus or the Apostles ever do away with the Sabbath, dietary laws or God’s feast days?
- Why do we worship on Sunday? And do Christians observe it like the Sabbath?
- Are the Ten Commandments still for today? If so, what about the Fourth and longest of them?
- Did Jesus of Nazareth really intend to start a brand new religion called “Christianity”? Or, did He come to fulfill that which all of the Hebrew prophets had foretold since the fall of man – something the Holy Scriptures mysteriously and wonderfully call “the restitution of all things.”
- What does the Bible clearly teach about the ultimate solution to the Middle East conflict?
- Where will the Antichrist come from – Rome of another part of the world?
- Have Christians replaced Israel as the people of promise?
If you’re curious about any of these questions, I invite you to read “The Restitution of All Things.” It’s the ultimate primer on the Hebrew roots of our faith, with a Jesus-centric and Israel-centric focus.
I promise nothing will bring you closer to Jesus than learning about how He will rule over the world in the coming Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
