We are living in the closing days of the gentile dispensation. The coming of The Lord to catch away His Church (I Thessalonians 4:13-17) is imminent. According to Ephesians 5:26-27, He is making ready a people, sanctified and cleansed by the washing of the water by the Word that He might present her as a glorious church to Himself.
God's church was established by Our Lord through the outpouring of His Holy Spirit at the day of Pentecost. (Acts ch. 2) Within a few short years we understand by scripture certain ungodly men crept in among the church unaware (Jude 1:4), false teachers with false doctrines (II Peter 2:1).
Because of these conditions, Jude would write this warning: (JUDE 1:3) Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
The Bible warns that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils (I Timothy 4:1) and would have a form of godliness, but deny the power thereof (II Timothy 3:5). The Lord Jesus asked: when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (Luke 18:8) These prevailing conditions of the last days written in various places in New Testament scripture would necessitate a restoration back to the original faith established in God’s people and declared in the book of Acts. There is to be a restoration at the endtime according to Acts 3:21 and Matthew 17:11.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
We believe we’re living in the fulfillment of these scriptures. God has sent HIS prophet with a message of restoration turning hearts back to the original faith. The wise virgins of Matthew 25 have been awakened by the midnight cry and are trimming their lamps to meet the bridegroom.
