Here I would like to introduce the “Restoring The Assembly” video series. This includes teachings I presented back in 2015, and will also include new material as well. Our technical ability has increased a lot since 2015, and the videos from that time have now been re-mastered to bring the quality up to date. This “Restoring The Assembly” series will bring these re-mastered teachings to you. They will lay out for you, from the Word and historical documents, what actually happened from the first century and beyond, including important information about the 1st Century Jewish Schism, then the 2nd century Gentile Schism, and the establishment of a rebel movement from the original established by Messiah, that developed into what we know as “The Church” today. Understanding how the schisms broke off from the true core of Israel, leading many away in a false path, is vital information for those today who desire to see the Assembly restored.
Could the Christian Church really be a break-away faction of the early Assembly? Paul warned us that “dissensions” and “factions” are works of the flesh, not of the Spirit. Nevertheless, He, and all of the Emissaries, warned us that factions were bound to happen, saying:
“For there must also be factions among you, so that those who are approved may become evident among you.” 1 Corinthians 11:19
That schisms must form, is therefore a Biblical theme, so it should not surprise us that such schisms have in fact arisen, and have led to the massive apostasy from the faith that is so evident all around us today. That factions led to massive heretical movements, and continue to form today, does not mean Messiah is not in control. In the end, those who are approved will become evident. This, in fact, is one of the important ways in which the actual overcoming remnant will be sorted out from those with a deviant factious agenda here in these last days. As we get closer to the Remnant Exodus, we must expect such betrayals. (Luke 21:16-17)
Understanding all of this history contained in the “Restoring The Assembly” video series, which presents the backdrop of Acts, and the history following from it, will help us as we then continue our journey through the Book of Acts from here. This will put us in good stead in our end-time goal of restoring the Assembly of Yeshua Messiah.
