  1. If someone with better skills than my rudimentary MSPainting can take this and do better, feel free. I’ve been pondering ‘restore,’ ‘rebuild,’ ‘repair’ over ‘replace,’ this week and thinking on the implications of being ‘grafted in.’ I’ll write a few thoughts later, but need to finish a couple pieces in the series on Dr. William Larkin’s IVPNT Commentary on Acts.



  2. This is a point I turn wheels on too! How can you restore something is you don’t go back to the original form of it?! Preachers today say they are ‘restoring the kingdom’ and have been ‘redeemed’ but how they lose sight of what the original foundation was and start building their own ideas. They don’t understand why we need redeemed or what the point of the redemption is


    1. A while back I read some history on the Davidic Kingdom. Scripture doesn’t really tell the tale… There are clues in the documents of the surrounding nations that he conquered or held in suppression HUGE areas surrounding Israel! His kingdom, and Solomon’s, was glorious by even today’s standards, yet it pales in comparison to what it WILL be… Part of making the Torah ‘great and glorious.’


  3. Thinking of antique furniture gives a good analogy. When I was young I didn’t appreciate my mother’s antique furniture. I slept in an antique 3/4 solid cherry bed and had a cabinet that matched. I didn’t think much of it. And didn’t think much about it when she got rid of it when she gave up her home. Probably could have had it along with many other things. I have many times wanted those things back. But the point I really want to make is about restoration of ‘old furniture’. There is something about antique furniture that has an attraction to it. Solid, sometimes ornate, intricately done, many handcrafted and fit together. Amazes you just to look at the handiwork. It may be dull or scratched (doesn’t matter). Restored to it’s beauty it will take your eyes and will allow you to recall all that went into it. Once you have experienced the beauty of before or after you will prefer the original piece and not a modern piece. Quantity made by a machine has not the ‘quality’ of the original. Now, back to ‘the Original Truth of The Torah’. Being ‘Restored to us’ , it is amazing. How did we prefer a substitute for its Truth! How amazing that Yahshua filled up the original meaning of His Torah for us so we could be blessed to know Him and brought back to Abba’s ‘Old Path Ways’! What a wonderful way to walk!
