For those who have experienced Israel with us, we witnessed and experienced across the entire nation of Israel that Adonai is in the restoration business! The land and the people! Restoration is prophetic:

Isaiah 61:4. They will rebuild the ancient ruins, restore sites long destroyed; they will renew the ruined cities, destroyed many generations ago.

A recent Prophecy News Watch article headlined: “Archaeologists Are Making Bombshell Discoveries In The Land Of Israel”. This article talked extensively about all the new discoveries in archeology in the land of Israel. What we experience across the greater Kingdom of Adonai is the Parallel that’s interwoven between the physical and spirit realm of Israel and the Kingdom of Adonai. On May 14th, 1948, Israel is reborn as a nation fulfilling prophecy:

Isaiah 66:8. Who ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Is a country born in one day? Is a nation brought forth all at once? For as soon as Tziyon went into labor, she brought forth her children.

This physical restoration of the Nation of Israel resulted in a supernatural spiritual outpouring. The great tent healing revivals of Billy Graham, William Branham, Oral Roberts, T. L. Osborn, A. A. Allen to name but a few…I want us to clearly see the pattern, the intertwined relationship, the inseparable connection between the people, the Nation of Israel and the spirit realm of God. Then in June 1967-Jerusalem is restored back into our Jewish hands as Yeshua prophesied:

Luke 21:24. Some will fall by the edge of the sword, others will be carried into all the countries of the Goyim, and Yerushalayim will be trampled (pateo {pat-eh’-o}: Trampled, to tread underfoot-occupied or ruled, to strike or smitten) down by the Goyim until the age of the Goyim has run its course.

The age or kairos time of Gentile occupation and rule of Jerusalem ended June 7th, 1967. This physical restoration resulted in a profound spiritual Charismatic outpouring and revival, the Jesus freak movement, the Y.M.J.A. was born, the modern messianic movement explodes with thousands of Jewish believers coming to Yeshua through this charismatic revival outpouring. Brings me right back to the revival scripture;

Acts 3:19-21. “Therefore, repent and turn to God, so that your sins may be erased; 20 so that times of refreshing may come from the Lord’s presence; and he may send the Messiah appointed in advance for you, that is, Yeshua. 21 He has to remain in heaven until the time comes for restoring everything, as God said long ago, when he spoke through the holy prophets.

Adonai has had me on this scripture for some time now! Its profound, it is the revival scripture but as we read it, we see a key revelation:

Acts 3:24-26. Indeed, all the prophets announced these days, starting with Sh’mu’el and continuing through all who followed. 25 “You are the sons of the prophets; and you are included in the covenant which God made with our fathers when he said to Avraham, ‘By your seed will all the families of the earth be blessed.’ 26 So it is to you first that God has sent his servant whom he has raised up, so that he might bless you by turning each one of you from your evil ways.”

It’s about the people, to the Jew first but also the nations! It’s personal! It’s about every one of His creation being restored unto Him! As physical Israel continues to be revealed, as the dirt is removed, and 5,000 years of Jewish history is revealed so too will some 2,000 years of spiritual sludge and dirt be removed, and the real Yeshua will be discovered. We’re in the Season of spirit and truth; as Yeshua spoke to the woman at the well in Shechem;

John 4:23-24. But the time is coming—indeed, it’s here now—when the true worshippers will worship the Father spiritually and truly, for these are the kind of people the Father wants worshipping him. God is spirit; and worshippers must worship him spiritually and truly.”

This is the restoration of true worship!! Not the stones, not the places but Adonai and Yeshua! Joel walks this process out profoundly through Rain and Restoration

Joel 2:23-25. Be glad, people of Tziyon! rejoice in ADONAI your God! For he is giving you the right amount of rain in the fall, he makes the rain come down for you, the fall and spring rains – this is what he does first. 24 Then the floors will be full of grain and the vats overflow with wine and olive oil. 25 “I will restore (shalam {shaw-lam’}: covenant of peace, to be complete, be sound, to make whole, to restore) to you the years that the locusts ate, the grasshoppers, shearer-worms and cutter-worms, my great army that I sent against you.

It was hands down the wettest and coldest Fall Feasts this year in Israel! Record amounts of rain have fallen, the desert itself is blossoming around the Dead Sea, and Lake Kinneret is almost it the Red Line, completely full! The rains are a both a physical and spiritual sign of blessings! Which in turn results in restoration! Immediately following restoration come the spiritual restoration, just like I already discussed!

Joel 2:28-31. “After this, I will pour out my Spirit on all humanity. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions; 29 and also on male and female slaves in those days I will pour out my Spirit. 30 I will show wonders in the sky and on earth – blood, fire and columns of smoke. 31 The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and terrible Day of ADONAI.”

In the last seven years we’ve experienced the quad blood red moons along with complete Solar eclipses! Adonai has been and is restoring Physically and Spiritually! The theft of Yeshua’s identity is also being restored! In fact, this is critical as our people are looking for Mashiach! Which brings us back to that it’s about the people! Yes, Israel is the Key and Yes Yeshua will rule in Jerusalem! God will take care of all that by releasing the “New Jerusalem” from heaven with a new temple for Yeshua to rule from!

Adonai is restoring the people! He’s restoring His creation unto Himself! We’ve toured the land and walked upon the very paving stones Yeshua walked upon! We’ve seen the ruins of the cities that Yeshua ministered in! I think their gone for a very specific reason! If they’d not been destroyed people would be worshipping them! Though we will always visit the historical sites as it makes the word come alive it’s not the stones, its people! Ironically, we witnessed an explosion of Orthodox Synagogues being built atop the stones and rocks of what has been! That’s not our future! Adonai is restoring people unto Himself:

Matthew 18:12-14. “What’s your opinion? What will somebody do who has a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine on the hillsides and go off to find the stray? 13 And if he happens to find it? Yes! I tell you he is happier over it than over the ninety-nine that never strayed! 14 Thus your Father in heaven does not want even one of these little ones to be lost.

Not one lost! The cultic oppression upon Orthodox Israel shall be broken, I don’t know when or how but I know Gods word specifically says this:

Zechariah 12:10. and I will pour out on the house of David and on those living in Yerushalayim a spirit of grace and prayer; and they will look to me, whom they pierced.” They will mourn for him as one mourns for an only son; they will be in bitterness on his behalf like the bitterness for a firstborn son.

His word shall come to pass which all begins with relationship! Kindness opens eyes of blindness! Restoration precedes revival! Our history as a people are filled with struggle. We struggled as slaves in Egypt. We struggled with doubt which ended with 40 years of wandering in the wilderness. We struggled with obedience and submission once we were in Promised Land, to survive and keep possessing it. We struggled in diaspora in Babylon. It was a struggle to return and rebuild the Temple and city after the 70 years of exile. We’ve struggled through a second, longer, 2,000-year diaspora. We struggled greatly in exile among the nations, persecution, pogroms, inquisitions, holocausts. We’ve struggled the last 75 years in rebuilding and restoring the nation of Israel and continue to do so! We continue to struggle with existentialism and idolatry today among our people. We struggle with the full restoration of Israel! We struggle as Messianic Believers in a secular-religious nation that knows Him not, or at least knows of Him but doesn’t Know Him. We must struggle, strive, and persevere to bring our people to Yeshua and bring about complete restoration and that we experience revival.

Here lies the mystery, its ONLY IN AND THROUGH THE STRUGGLES that we get to where God wants us to be! To minister unto Him. To be His representative, His emissary, to rule together with Him! To seek and strive for Jewish Revival! To be an Israelite! We are all called to rise to our calling and destiny!! In the end we will rule and minister with Him over everything that He has created!

II Timothy 2:12. If we persevere (hupomeno {hoop-om-en’-o} bear trials, have fortitude, persevere, abide, endure, suffer, struggle) we will also rule with him If we disown him, he will also disown us.

Some of us feel that we’re still in exile, many struggle just to keep the faith, to keep their witness! Exactly how does it end?

Revelation 19:5-7. ” A voice went out from the throne, saying, “Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, small and great!” 6 Then I heard what sounded like the roar of a huge crowd, like the sound of rushing waters, like loud peals of thunder, saying, “Halleluyah! ADONAI, God of heaven’s armies, has begun his reign! 7 “Let us rejoice and be glad! Let us give him the glory! For the time has come for the wedding of the Lamb, and his Bride has prepared herself –

Yeshua isn’t returning for denominations, ministries, works, buildings, temple, churches, or synagogues! He’s returning for the bride which is composed of people! Jewish people, Gentile people, Indigenous people, Black people, Asian people, Hispanic people, Arab people, every nation, every tribe, and every tongue! All people groups are being restored to the table of sacrifice, to the Communion table! All with equal seating! Ya’acov, James, Yeshua’s brother quoted Amos 9:11-12 when he spoke to the restoration of Israel that leads to world revival in:

Acts 15:15-17. And the words of the Prophets are in complete harmony with this for it is written, 16 ‘”After this, I will return; and I will rebuild the fallen tent (Sukkah: Sukkah, booth, Chuppah, the dwelling place (Shakan) of God’s Shekinah (divine Presence). Root word also refers to Mishpocha or family-the family of David) of David. I will rebuild its ruins, I will restore it, 17 so that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord, that is, all the Goyim who have been called by my name,”

This Sukkah or Tabernacle of David is a place where God is sought; the world will seek Him. This Sukkah or tabernacle will be restored in the time to come. Sukkot also represents the wedding feast as the chuppah, it represents the return of the Kingdom of God here on earth, the return and rule of Yeshua! It always has and will always be about personal restoration! Let us strive and move forward in our fellowship and love with one another, as we truly will need each other in struggle of the hard times ahead! First the land then the people as laid out in Ezekiel 36:24-29.

First the restoration of the land:

Ezekiel 37:12-14. Therefore prophesy; say to them that Adonai ELOHIM says, ‘My people! I will open your graves and make you get up out of your graves, and I will bring you into the land of Isra’el. 13 Then you will know that I am ADONAI – when I have opened your graves and made you get up out of your graves, my people! 14 I will put my Spirit in you; and you will be alive. Then I will place you in your own land; and you will know that I, ADONAI, have spoken, and that I have done it,’ says ADONAI.”

Then the restoration, unification, and salvation of the people:

Ezekiel 37:22-24. I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Isra’el; and one king will be king for all of them. They will no longer be two nations, and they will never again be divided into two kingdoms. 23 “‘They will never again defile themselves with their idols, their detestable things, or any of their transgressions; but I will save them from all the places where they have been living and sinning; and I will cleanse them, so that they will be my people, and I will be their God. 24 My servant David will be king over them, and all of them will have one shepherd; they will live by my rulings and keep and observe my regulations.

Then the unity of Jews and Gentile, the One New Humanity. Even the gentiles among us will be given an inheritance, land in the Promise land:

Ezekiel 47:21-23. “‘This is the territory you are to divide among the tribes of Isra’el. 22 You are to divide it by lot as an inheritance both to you and to the foreigners living among you who give birth to children living among you; for you they are to be no different from the native-born among the people of Isra’el – they are to have an inheritance with you among the tribes of Isra’el. 23 You are to give the foreigner an inheritance in the territory of the tribe with whom he is living,’ says Adonai ELOHIM.

Lord in Yeshua’s name may we see this supernatural event in our lifetime, with our own eyes! Your word will not come back null or void! It will do what You have called it to do! We give You all the praise, glory, and honor for this righteous restoration!
