The Church From Judgement To Restoration
FROM JUDGMENT TO RESTORATION
The Church has begun to feel the effects of a judgmental shaking for “the removal of those things that are being
shaken, as of the things that are made, that the things which cannot e shaken may remain.” Heb 12:27. The things
that have been in itiated by man, and glorify man , will n ot survive the sh aking. On ly the things of the Spirit will
remain, for they cannot be sh aken .
To precipitate this shaking, God h as withdraw n His restrainin g h and on the power of Antichrist, to brin g the hidden
apostasies that have plagued the Church out in the open. Far from being against God’s will, Antichrist’s attack on
the Church, commonly referred to as the battle of Armageddo n, is actually initiated by God Himself.
This is not a milit ary battle with the armies of the world under the control of Antichrist surroundin g Isr ae l, or the
Christian s of the world gathered at Jerusalem. It is a sp iritual b attle between Christ and Antichrist - between the
truth of the doctrine of Christ, oppo sed by the deception s and lying wonders of Antichrist. Never before has the
very existence of the Church been so threatened by heresies, lying sign s and wonders, New Age Philo soph ies,
eastern mysticism , false prophets and teachers, and so forth.
God h as actually initiated this con frontation so that,
(i) The Ch urch m ay be refined an d restored. Re storation, as its n ame implies, me ans to restore to its
origin al state - in this case the pattern of the early Church .
(ii) Antichrist and all his deception s may be brou ght out in the open an d destroyed by the light of truth.
