Without question, the world around us is burning and all of us are looking for, longing for, the Kingdom. We may each understand it a little differently, but all of us look for a Messianic Age or Millennial Kingdom. That Kingdom, we all agree, will operate according to the prophecy in Isaiah 2:2-5.
2 The word which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2 Now it will come about that
In the last days
The mountain of the house of the Lord
Will be established as the chief of the mountains,
And will be raised above the hills;
And all the nations will stream to it.
3 And many peoples will come and say,
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
That He may teach us concerning His ways
And that we may walk in His paths.”
For the Torah will go forth from Zion
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
4 And He will judge between the nations,
And will render decisions for many peoples;
And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not lift up sword against nation,
And never again will they learn war.
5 Come, house of Jacob, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.Isaiah 2:2-5
The prophecy says ‘He [will] teach us concerning His ways.. that we may walk in His paths.’
His ways, outlined in Genesis 1 & 2 and articulated in myriad other places in Scripture, include order and structure. God is not a God of chaos or disorder.
The restoration of all things is a return to Eden and a return to the original design and intent of Creation to show forth the manifold glory and wisdom of Elohim. Central to that is the restoration of the created Order, dashed by haSatan, Adam, and Chava at the Fall.
Over the last several years of study, I have increasingly understood and grown in clarity concerning what this Restoration will look like and how we will function. The journey to that restoration begins from where we are, not some point after the Kingdom begins. Put another way, we need to be making corrections and getting things in order now, not waiting or assuming….
Here is an excellent, excellent blog post that deals with the Created Order, how and why it was broken down, what it’s relationship is to the current chaos we are seeing in the world, and how the false understanding is coming or has come into the various Judeo-Christian sects, including the Hebrew Roots. This article identifies THE major issue everyone is scared to deal with!
The major issue/point that MUST be dealt with is not Shabbat, dietary laws, feasts, pronunciation of the Name, or when Rosh Chodesh falls. Seriously, there is a deeper root that extends to the Creation. Hath God said?
Take the 25 or 30 minutes necessary to read the above linked article and then process how it is related to every aspect of rebellion we see, both in the world around us and in the various denominations and sects I have mentioned.
Here is an extended quote from the beginning to whet your appetite and bettr expose this very very important topic:
Because flattening out the creation order is Satan’s goal, and thus the goal of all his sons (John 8:44), it is a staple feature of pagan religions. This is obvious to many in the case of the sexual alphabet soup we’re dealing with today (LGBTQETC). But feminism is also simply a modern iteration of this pagan ideal. And this includes Christian offshoots like egalitarianism, and even consistent complementarianism. You may balk at us including complementarianism here, but we see no way around it, because it relegates the significance of sexual differences to the home and church, and even further reduces headship to a tie-breaking vote and servant leadership. In other words, complementarianism presupposes androgynism.
Feminism, egalitarianism, and complementarianism are all just particular forms of androgynism.
Understanding this is critical for fighting it within the church, in two ways:
It clarifies that the disagreement is over religious doctrine, not social conduct. What we mean by this is that androgyny is a “gospel issue.” It is a kind of sexual immorality, the practitioners of which will not see the kingdom of God (1 Cor 6:9, NASB). In other words, androgyny is not a faux pas, where you violate the social expectations of men and women in God’s kingdom. It is a heresy, where you violate the integrity of the gospel itself by syncretizing it with another religion.
It prevents quibbling over labels. When pagan religions infiltrate the church and faithful men point it out, the quislings and patsies say, “We reject that religion by name, therefore this is not that!” Many Christians are weak on biblical sexuality, but deny that they are feminists (or unorthodox on homosexuality). Getting stuck on semantic arguments muffles the bugle’s call to battle (cf. 1 Cor 14:8). The answer is to stop using ideological labels, like “feminism,” and start using descriptive ones, like “androgynism.” This exposes what is actually being promoted, and its connection to foreign religion.
In this article, we are going to go deep into androgyny. It is by far our longest piece. We urge you to persevere. We want to help you understand the hell we have created for ourselves—especially within the church—by confusing, flattening, attacking, and overturning the creation order. Seeing how feminism, egalitarianism, and complementarianism in particular are all just modern versions of androgyny is a critical foundation for defeating them. We must know our enemy in order to cut it off and destroy it.Androgyny is Literally Paganism ~ It’s Good To Be A Man blog
