There is going to be a restoration, and it will not be according to the rabbinic teaching of the Pharisees. The speculation of man leads to error, and the Rabbis have chutzpah to consider that they can correct God. They do not know with what they are playing.
For the material is ephemeral, and the spiritual is eternal. The very restoration of the land of Israel to fertility is the work of God. The increase of the peoples of Israel is the work of God.
It is the spirit of the age that makes us guilty on (as I heard an woman saying yesterday as she served me coffee) growing a human. It is the spirit of this age that calls people useless, and promotes euthanasia.
God likes it when we cannot be numbered, though he does know us by name. He wants us te fruitful, in the corps, in the families, and in those who turn to him and bow the kness.
33 “Thus says the Lord God: On the day that I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the waste places shall be rebuilt. 34 And the land that was desolate shall be tilled, instead of being the desolation that it was in the sight of all who passed by. 35 And they will say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden, and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are now fortified and inhabited.’ 36 Then the nations that are left all around you shall know that I am the Lord; I have rebuilt the ruined places and replanted that which was desolate. I am the Lord; I have spoken, and I will do it.
37 “Thus says the Lord God: This also I will let the house of Israel ask me to do for them: to increase their people like a flock. 38 Like the flock for sacrifices, like the flock at Jerusalem during her appointed feasts, so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of people. Then they will know that I am the Lord.”
5 When the disciples reached the other side, they had forgotten to bring any bread. 6 Jesus said to them, “Watch and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” 7 And they began discussing it among themselves, saying, “We brought no bread.” 8 But Jesus, aware of this, said, “O you of little faith, why are you discussing among yourselves the fact that you have no bread? 9 Do you not yet perceive? Do you not remember the five loaves for the five thousand, and how many baskets you gathered? 10 Or the seven loaves for the four thousand, and how many baskets you gathered? 11 How is it that you fail to understand that I did not speak about bread? Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” 12 Then they understood that he did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
The trouble is that the liberal Jews and Catholics read too much into healing the world and that justice my flow like a river. They think it will be by their actions.
This will not happen in this world. Justice here is political, and the corporations are going to use lawyers to break the social contract.
Consider the post from Gunner Q, and that Jim Wallis is a warning and Sojourners, which started as a Evangelical organization (albeit fairly left) is now as useful as a bone china hammer.
But November 4 is still a while off. Today, Cthulhu came for Jim Wallis the Sojourners Justice Warrior. Wallis’ first mistake was, of course, thinking God isn’t real and Christianity was therefore a tool to Converge The World with. His second mistake was green-lighting this blatant hit piece:
Martin wrote this screed to demand that the USCCB oppose the Confederate flag specifically and be extension, white male American history generally. He cloaked his intention by adding nooses and swastikas to evoke the proper emotions.
Wallis not catching this was either foolish or… intentional.
Then Wallis made his third mistake: he apologized. He had no choice, of course. Doubling down would have shredded his golden parachute.
I excerpted heavily from the following as usual but I will also give the overall word counts. It emphasizes the silly suckage.
That was Wallis’ fourth mistake. He silenced an SJW attacking Christians. While he shouldn’t have given Martin the voice he enjoyed, apologizing to Christians alienated everybody on Team Narrative.
Wallis negotiated a leveraged takeover of his little empire. While being unwilling to walk away, he promoted his in-house Commissar into the highest office to ensure that by the time he walks away, there will be nothing left but a genocidal organization wearing Christ as a skin suit.
Nobody values loyalty as much as the Rebel. Christ values loyalty also but remembers that we are frail and blind, and also believes in allowing us breathing room to be ourselves. As in Sandi’s case, the devil will Converge your every last moment of life to the Narrative.
At the time of the Passover, when the lambs are sacrificed and the meal eaten, There is no leaven. The feast was know as that of unleavened bread: at the end of that time the housewives would have to make a new starter of yeast or acquire one from the gentiles. The leaven of this world is social justice, and it will destroy you. It is a heresy.
Beware of teaching that seems sweet but is foul. That promise ease when the road of Christ is narrow and conter-cultural. Suspect those, like Jim Wallis, who are promoted by the corporations that consider being evil a strategy to increase profits.
And this elite will not be in the restoration, so shun them.
