We believe that we are living in a time of restoration. Many things are being revealed to us and restored to us. The seventh day Sabbath has been restored to us. The Biblical feasts have been restored to us. More and more, we are being taught to keep Abba YHVH’s commandments. We, being in the Diaspora cannot keep any of the commandments perfectly. We keep Sabbath, but we can’t do the commanded offers; we celebrate the feasts and there also we lack. We believe that we should be observing all the Sabbaths: the weekly, the annual and the seventh year Sabbath as well. This will, likewise, be difficult to keep in the Diaspora, but nonetheless, not impossible. There is more to the Sabbatical year than just the commandments regarding the land. We also have to release every debt. It remains part of YHVH’s divine reckoning of time. We won’t be able to do it perfectly. It is about keeping YHVH’s way to the best of our ability and with a willing heart.

In the Scriptures we see the phrase “restoration of all things” a few times. Do we understand what this phrase means and what preconditions exist for this to start? It starts off with personal restoration. Repentance is a key element of this process. How are we to repent? What do we need to repent of? What are the roles of Y’shua and Elijah in this process and what examples do we find in Scripture? In this study, we will discuss this in detail.
We all sin, no matter how hard we try not to. We are human – we sin in our thoughts, in the words we speak and in the things we do. You don’t have to go far to see the result of sin. In other people’s lifes and even our own lifes. How do we define sin? Sin is not keeping YHVH’s commandments; sin is compromising in doing the commandments; sin is speaking evil of another; sin is thinking evil thoughts; sin is eating unclean foods; to give you but a few examples. Some of these things we do unintentionally, but it still is sin. Sin takes us away from YHVH. It seperates us from His presence, it prevents us from hearing His voice. That is what I experience when I sin or compromise, but there is restoration through teshuvah (repentance) and forgiveness through the atoning work of Messiah Y’shua.
