As in all restoration processes, it is right to find out what all the original ingredients are, and what the due processes were, before an attempt should be made to restore anything to its former or intended glory, otherwise it is not an authentic or faithful restoration.

The ingredients and the processes have been identified, and the forgotten master plan has been uncovered and all the original processes have been rediscovered, even the directions from the original plans have been identified, although maybe not all the directions.

From the first time that God spoke to man, He always gave man His plans and intentions and then would show him the methods and application of technology to achieve and fulfil the plans according to His intentions. He told us clearly His plan and intentions for man in Genesis 1:26: “Let Us make man in Our Image, in Our Likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the Earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” And in verse 29: “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the Earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground,” He gave the means by which they could sustain themselves and achieve what He intended in verse 28. And in Genesis 2:19 He showed Adam how he would be able to maintain and sustain the plan once it was achieved. So then, the plan is in Genesis 1:28; the sustenance to achieve the plan is in verse 29; and the power to maintain the plan is in 2:19.

Likewise, when He spoke to Noah, He made clear to Noah His plan in Genesis 6:1-17, and His intention in verse 18. He gave Noah the sustenance to achieve the plan in 6:14, 21 and 7:2; the power to maintain the plan and established His covenant with Noah in Genesis 9:1-17.

Everywhere you go, God does it again and again, declaring His plans and intentions, and revealing His provision and power to sustain and maintain them. He did it with Moses and with Joshua as well. Whenever God wants to extend His Kingdom and to start a new work, the process is the same, the plan and intention is announced, the provision and power to sustain and maintain is given, and all we have to do is follow it to the letter. That is, have the attitude of spirit to take God at His word, and we would be fine and experience the reward of being in God’s perfect plans.

· Noah did just that, and became the only man to possess the world.

· Adam did not, and lost the world for himself and his children.

· Moses did everything except one, and lost his personal reward.

· Joshua did everything, and became the most successful warrior of Israel, except when he listened to good advice.

· Jesus did everything exactly as the Father had commanded Him, ignoring well meaning advice from men who loved Him—and achieved what no man before Him or since could do—to sit down at the right hand of God and reign with Him.

So when God wanted to raise up through Christ the body of Christ, which we call the church, through which the Kingdom of God could come, He announced His intentions: For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.[1] And, A Shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him —the Spirit of Wisdom and of Understanding, the Spirit of Counsel and of Power, the Spirit of Knowledge and of the Fear of the Lord —and He will delight in the fear of the Lord. He will not judge by what He sees with His eyes, or decide by what He hears with His ears; but with righteousness He will judge the needy, with justice He will give decisions for the poor of the Earth. He will strike the Earth with the rod of His mouth; with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked. Righteousness will be His belt and faithfulness the sash around His waist.[2] —And giving us full details how this Child would be born: Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with Child and will give birth to a Son, and will call Him Immanuel.[3]

And when Jesus came, the full intentions of God and the details of the outworking of that plan was announced through John the Baptist who said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”[4] And the fullness of the details of the plans and intentions were invested entirely in Jesus Christ. All the instructions, the last detail of it all, would be made known through Jesus, which is why we were commanded to “Listen to Him!”[5] And the explanation of those plans, the technology, would come through the Holy Spirit, which is why the very functions of the Holy Spirit are clearly stated by Jesus in John 14, 15, 16 and Acts 1:8. And when the first generation of the church deviated from entering the promised land of the Kingdom of God like the first generation of Israelites deviated from Canaan, Jesus came and dictated the seven letters to the seven churches, outlining all the shortcomings and faults of the work up until then, and the solution to those shortcomings; commanding seven times to each and every church, “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”[6]

And as He taught us and counselled us, He also showed us the mistakes made by the first lot of workers who introduced work practices that were never intended, and which today are still embedded in the economy of the kingdom. Practices that have ensued that the kingdom is bankrupt as far as having miraculous power is concerned, and practices that must now be weeded out along with those who perpetrate them.

· The plan was to save the world through Jesus[7] and to raise up a church to keep it safe, beginning with the calling of the first twelve apostles.

· The training of those disciples was to come through listening to Jesus and practising His words under His personal tutorship, and then the Holy Spirit would take over and continue the making of disciples through the church so that the world would enjoy the salvation that Jesus had paid for with His life and blood.

· The instructions are the words of Jesus; the training is the practice of these words under the tutorship of the Holy Spirit through all generations.

· And the means would be by the power of the Holy Spirit, so that the church and the Holy Spirit would bear witness to the testimonies of God and of Jesus Christ before all men.

You all know now that immediately after the success of Jesus’ work, the church never set out on their part of the work correctly, so that from the first day onwards, it was a compromised situation, good and pleasing, but never perfect. When things are good and pleasing only, they tend to die, for good brought death as surely as evil did, and death is never pleasing to God who is Life. So the good and pleasing things that we started off with from the road to Emmaus, to the locked room, to the fishing trip at Galilee, to the later trip to the mountain at Galilee, to His ascension from the Mount of Olives,[8] to the selection of Matthias as the twelfth apostle and the upper room of Acts 2 and the healings of the peoples of Jerusalem were all good and pleasing, but never perfect.

Just as Peter’s shout to the Lord, “Lord, if it is You, tell me to come to You on the water,”[9] is good, and his faith to step out of the boat is pleasing, yet it was never perfect. And without perfection, even love cannot drive out all fear. So it is no wonder that Peter did fear and sink.

Without the perfection of being there at the Mount of Transfiguration on resurrection morning, the love of the disciples could not keep out the fear, and although many good and pleasing things were done by great men and women of faith, especially their heroic martyrdom for the faith that did not stop the body of Christ to sink, as Peter’s body sunk into the tossing sea of humanity devoid of the miraculous powers to walk upon it to overcome it, so now, like Peter, the church is crying out, “Lord, save me,” when it has always been saved, and instead of keeping the world safe for the Lord, the church needs the Lord to save it from the world.

But once more the hand of the Lord is extended out to those who have cried out, and if they will take it up, then they will walk with Him above the waves of the fears of the world, just like Peter walked back with Jesus and immediately they too will reach the safety they were seeking, just as for the twelve, immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading.[10] John does not tell us where they reached, but Matthew clearly tells us they landed at Gennesaret;[11] not Capernaum where they intended,[12] nor Bethsaida where God wanted them to be.[13] But then, they did not repent.

So now the church wants to go to Capernaum to the place Jesus never told them to go, Capernaum, the city of unbelievers, despite the many miracles of God.[14] That is the one place they never went to, even though that was their intention. Their failure to repent for disobeying when Jesus came to them saw them in Gennesaret, not Bethsaida where Jesus intended.

So the destination the church has chosen for herself so that she may boast, “‘I sit as queen; I am not a widow, and I will never mourn,’”[15] will never be granted. Those who repent will start again from Bethsaida, and those who do not repent will be at Gennesaret, figuratively. It is through continuous earnest unceasing repentance with excessive submission to the Holy Spirit that the elect will begin again at Bethsaida, and those who persist in their fear and their bravado of faith will be delivered to Gennesaret.

Bethsaida, for us, is where we will be opening the eyes of the blind and doing the things that He has been doing and greater things than these, while He is away from us[16] as He was away from them when He prayed up on the mountain that evening after the feeding of the 5000.

Gennesaret will be, for those who do not repent of their disobedience, Heaven, where they will be taken by Jesus in the Ark of the Covenant for the Forgiveness of Sins. Gennesaret is John 11:25 and Bethsaida is John 11:26.

· The plans have been restored.

· The Law is made plain again.

· The process and the technology have been revealed.

· The power is restored.

So then, let the work begin, and let all the Earth be silent for God is in His Holy Temple. The Holy Spirit is now enthroned in His Temple, in the hearts of His elect.

The plans for the next phase of God’s expansion is also revealed, the end of days for the church is now come, and the time of the Kingdom age will begin as soon as Jesus arrives with His elect. We are like Noah preparing the vessel to carry those who are meant to take part in the next age across the waters of the flood.

The Spirit of Wisdom is now calling – Will you come into the Ark before the flood of disasters and distress unequalled since the foundation of the Earth arrives? We have one set of seven left as Noah did when God told him, “Seven days from now I will send rain on the Earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the Earth every living creature I have made.”[17]

Go preach; go warn! If they will listen, let them listen. If they will not listen, leave them, for God will be proved true in the sight of all His peoples. Amen
